HOUMA, La. (AP) - A man booked with murder after allegedly stabbing his wife and driving her corpse around for six hours was part of another tragedy in 1983: the disappearance of his toddler son in a Tacoma, Wash., park.
The Courier of Houma reports that Stanley Lee Guidroz, now in the Terrebonne Parish Jail, told police in 1983 that he was in the park with his 2-year-old when he met a man and a woman with a child of similar age.
Guidroz told police he took a walk with the man, leaving the children with the woman. When he and the man returned, the woman and both children were gone. The man soon disappeared as well.
