xx Pegye Bechler - July 7, 1997 - CA
« Thread started on: Sep 24th, 2004, 06:58am »

On July 7, 1997, Pegye Bechler and her husband, Eric, rented a boat and headed out into the harbor. It was Eric's idea — a romantic cruise off the Newport Beach, CA coast to belatedly celebrate their anniversary and her birthday. But by nightfall, Pegye was missing and Eric was sobbing uncontrollably in front of local news cameras. Her body was never found and it appeared to be a tragic accident. As police investigated Pegye's disappearance, they began to suspect a boating accident might be a case of homicide.

xx Husband Charged with Wife's Murder
« Reply #1 on: Sep 24th, 2004, 07:00am »

02/01/01-A Newport Beach man who claimed his wife disappeared from a boat while they were on a fifth anniversary outing was convicted of first- degree murder Thursday and a special circumstance of murder while lying in wait.

The seven-woman, five-man jury deliberated for more than a week before finding Eric Bechler, 33, of killing Pegye Bechler, 38, on July 6, 1997.

Bechler was found not guilty of murder for financial gain, the second special circumstance the prosecution alleged.

He is expected to be sentenced to life in prison without parole.

xx Bechler Committed the Perfect Crime & Bragged...
« Reply #3 on: Sep 24th, 2004, 08:50am »

Bechler is scheduled to be sentenced March 16. His conviction last month for killing his wife, Pegye, came about in large part because there were two 35-pound weights missing from his home and because he told his girlfriend—a bikini model wearing a wire—that he had used the weights to bash his wife in the head and dump her body at sea. When confronted with a tape of his confession, Bechler claimed he had only said those things to impress his girlfriend, Tina New, who chalked up her preoccupied tone on the tape to her frustrations with a leaking breast implant.

As for physical evidence, there was none: Pegye Bechler’s body was never found; none of her blood was found on the rented boat on which Eric told New he bludgeoned Pegye with one of the weights and then attached the dumbbells to her body and threw it overboard halfway to Catalina; and the prosecution never found a motive, according to jurors.

Although they believed Eric killed his wife, they said they did not believe the prosecution’s claim that he did it to cash in on her $2.4 million life-insurance policy. Jurors said they just agreed that something about the whole scenario didn’t seem right. They couldn’t put their finger on what—it was just something.

On Friday, March 25, 2005, Court TV will reair the segment regarding the disappearance and murder of Pegye Bechler. Bechler's case is eerily similar to that of Laci Peterson. The show will begin @ 8 p.m. EST

Thinking of Pegye Bechler today and hoping that she can be found. I know that her family still loves and misses her.

Thinking of Pegye on the date of her disappearance. Hoping she will be found some day. She's still missing but NOT forgotten.
