Kathy Page's murder is the inspiration for that movie her Father put up billboards her husband has never even been charged

Three Billboards true story inspiration was on "Cold Justice," An adulteress wife strangled by her husband and the father put up the Billboards, because the husband was never charged, even after Cold Justice aired the episode, they still refuse to bring the case to trial, so corruption there as the Billboards the father put up always claimed. This poor mother.

Three billboards outside ebbing, missouri??

While traveling through the Southern United States in around 1998, Martin McDonagh came across a couple of accusatory billboards about an unsolved crime, which he described as "raging and painful and tragic" alleging the murder of a woman in Vidor, Texas. The billboards highlighted the incompetence of police work and deeply affected McDonagh; he said that the image "stayed in my mind [...] kept gnawing at me" and presumed that they were put up by the victim's mother. This incident, combined with his desire to create strong female characters, inspired him to write the story for _Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri_ .

The filmmaker said he got the story from the Billboards in Vidor, Texas not some in Missouri. https://www.beaumontenterprise.com/news/article/Vidor-billboards-inspire-Oscar-nominated-film-12487386.php

The Husband wont give up the body because if it is examined it'll probably have multiple stab wounds. He'll serve alot more than 4 years.

The only reason why the missing people are usually still missing and not found are because cops are the one on a search and they actually don’t investigate and you wait for no reason

Maybe this man doesnt tell, where the remains are, cause he is afraid, that there could be evidence found, which are not proof his side of the story. (*no englisch native)

I pray she finds Angie before her time. I can't believe he only got four years. No Justice in this life anymore. He could at least tell her where her daughter be is. What a prick, I really hope karma gets him where he suffers worse than anyone has ever.

Nothing else to lose at this point but to take $$$ and have someone interview the husband. 15 mins and a bucket of water, he'll admit to wearing woman's panties. Get your answer and then take care of the rest. Worst case, maybe a person will get only 4 yrs for him!! 4 yrs will out weigh what I would have to look for my daughter. If the law and all the ppl that dropped the ball here, I would have no worries. Ppl might care more if it was their daughter. What a shame - I'm disgusted. I wish this mom all the best to remain so strong. Karma will come to the husband if it didn't already.

Armchair sleuth here not wanting to offend with my amateur opinions but from all of the similar situations of spousal abuse they never take the body very far away from home base. They’ve probably gone over every inch of his property but if he had any frequent quiet fishing spots or any known secluded stretches of road around their home it could be a start- those types of murderers are dim and impulsive cowards who usually don’t cover their tracks. They also risk being pulled over traveling for any length of time with a body.

this is not the murder that inspired the movie. that murder took place in 1990 not 2003. BBC is only saying the stories are similar.

He deserves many many years. Remember that woman that Kim Kardashian was representing? She got a life sentence for a first time drug charge and she didn’t kill or hurt anyone. This man killed someone and caused this woman a pain that nobody could imagine unless you’re in that situation.

4 years is an insult, he should have been imprisoned indefinitely with no chance of release unless he was prepared to reveal the location of the body. No remorse at all if he can't do that!

Michael pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter. He was sentenced to seven years in prison, and released in July 2013

Rara Cat (1 month ago)
RaymondHng I know. I was reiterating ~Rox
RaymondHng (1 month ago)
Did I say it was fair? All I said was that the husband plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter, not first degree (premeditated) murder. The sentence for involuntary manslaughter is seven years. Two politicians in my city were shot and killed in 1978 by one assailant. He was tried for first-degree murder with special circumstance, a crime which potentially carried the death penalty in my state. The defense team claimed that he was depressed at the time of the shootings, evidenced by many changes in his behavior, including changes in his diet. The defense argued that his depression led to a state of mental diminished capacity, leaving him unable to have formed the premeditation necessary to commit first-degree murder. The jury accepted these arguments, and he was convicted of the lesser crime of voluntary manslaughter. That's voluntary, not involuntary. So for the death of two city government officials, the assailant received a seven-year sentence which he served only five years. An attorney summed up our country's judicial system very succinctly: "It's not who is right. It's who puts on the best show."

When she said that her daughters husband called saying that Angie had ran away I knew it I just knew he had killed her. No signs of being devastated or sad like he wasnt even looking for her. It doesnt Make sense that he was released without confessing the whereabouts of Angie's remains.

He only served 4 years, because he made it sound like he didn't intentionally kill her when she fell off the deck and hit her head. He doesn't want the body found, because than they will see that he brutally killed her in another way and would probably get life in prison. How sad that he lets this poor mother suffer like this while he goes about his life without a care in the world.

That man is sick. He already served his time and has been released. Whats the point of keeping it a secret now? Give this mother some peace after everything she has been through. Let her give Angie a proper funeral. What does he have to lose?

Of course the killer husband wouldn't tell where he had disposed of Angie's body because if it were to be recovered it would probably provide forensic evidence that it wasn't a manslaughter but a premeditated homicide! Just cannot fathom why would any court of law sentence the self-admitted killer, who's refusing to locate the body of his victim, to such a laughably short jail sentence!

I don’t think he killed her. If he’s that insistent on not disclosing her location there probably isn’t one because he sold her to a human trafficking ring. God please watch over that poor girl.

Sketchy Ginger (5 months ago)
I dont believe he killed her. call me whatever but my insta feeling is he sold her for something. Four years is nothing, some inside job means he had connections, who let a lack of evidence be let go. no law enforcement will say, oh its cool, you confessed but wont lead us to her body.
Katia Tannus (5 months ago)
I hope she finds her daughter someday. To all you mothers that are going through the same thing as she is don't worry you will get justice someday
