I noted a discussion on here about the LDS religion, and I'd just like to say that anybody who followed the Elizabeth Smart case...you'll notice the church gave full backing to her family. They won't give it to Mark. Why? Well this is out of personal opinion and not meant to offend, but I was born and raised in Utah, and I am not LDS. I believe they won't give him backing because A: he's really quite guilty and he did a messy job B: He does not come from wealth. He probably could've taken a few pointers from Ed Smart

I'm fairly certain that he cut her into pieces, and then wrapped her in a couple of sheets and put the sheets and the pieces in a few plastic garbage bags.

your right about assuming the surveilance video is important evidence, but it was at 1:00ish am that he went to get smokes, she "went jogging" at 5am ish. Another thing is that they found the matress, the top fabric had been cut out of the matress and they think that shes wrapped in that as well as the sheets and blankets that were on the bed. A good story on it at

About my comment on why the church won't back Mark, it's because he is guilty, and since the church runs this state, of course they knew...in the words of Biff Tannen in Back to the Future II, "kid, I OWN the police!"
Anyway, that's why they won't back him and they're right, he is guilty. The insanity plea is trés difficult to get in this state but I am not sure why. I think it's fairly obvious this murder was premediated, but that's just my opinion. I imagine they'll find her in pieces, or maybe just a few pieces of her. But-- if there is already enough to convict, that says something.
As far as hanging in Utah, lethal injection replaced that option in 1980. But firing squad still remains an option. He seems to be overly dramatic and very good at it somewhat, so he'll probably choose that. Personally I think he should be tied to a circle and dismembered...
At any rate, I hope he is convicted because the big boys down at point of the mountain (where the Utah state prison is located between Salt Lake and Utah county) will have a fun time with him. They should make him wear a dress! Ha, j/k
Do you think that he's being made an example of? I'm wondering...

Just watched Greta Van Suteren on TV. She was showing how Mark Hacking had another identity ( I do not remember the name she howed ).
I think that explains the beard I saw him wearing that looked fake to me. Se my post from July 27.
I sure as heck wish that I could see things "clean" sometimes without the symbology.
