Mr Fisher, Where art thou?
I cannot understand what would drive a man, let alone a father of two to murder not only his wife but children too. This case to me will always leave more questions than answers until Mr. Fisher decides to either turn himself in or is caught by law enforcement. Even if he is caught, one can only wonder if he would cooperate and tell the story as to what was on his mind when he went down this dark path.
A fear of his children experiencing a divorce like he had and also a measure revenge from what ever feelings of hatred he had been festering towards his wife. All of this we can all assume built up over a given period of time leading to these violent crimes. It’s almost exactly like Yoda says in The Phantom Menace “Fear is the path to the dark side, Fear leads to anger, Anger leads to hate – Hate leads to suffering”.
My thoughts about where Robert Fisher may have fled to the mountains in Northern Arizona where he had some other means of travel after abandoning Mary’s Toyota 4Runner. It is worth noting that perhaps investigators did not search the cave network thoroughly enough and Robert may have escaped or died there. Maybe one day an innocent explorer will search these caves and his remains deep within the extensive cave network that exists.
Still I wonder how the family dog did not follow him after he exited the vehicle. Perhaps it was simply obedient when he told it to stay put and waited for him to return, or maybe he had some other means of escape pre-planned to further aid him in his flight from justice.
We know that he had already had one affair and Mary chose to give him a second chance but I wonder if it is possible if had others that never came to public light and one of them was waiting for him up in the mountains to aid in his escape. Many husbands promise lovers they will leave their wives and families for them and perhaps Robert Fisher held true to his word in a more sadistic manner than anyone imagined.
Perhaps worse, she knew all along what Robert was either planning or found out after the fact yet decided to overlook it and stay with him. Ted Bundy’s girlfriend when he was on trial for murder said that she would marry him, so it isn’t too much of a stretch to imagine that another woman felt the same way for Robert Fisher.
Yes of course he may have committed suicide and this is all speculation but this theory definitely has merit when it is well documented that women for whatever reason are attracted to men who have carried out acts of murder and even on multiple occasions. Ted Bundy isn’t the only popular case where this can be observed, the same thing occurred during the trial of Richard Ramirez and one could argue both were worse individuals than Robert Fisher as depraved as that may be.
But returning to the case in hand and after seventeen years on the run, Robert William Fisher has become the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s most wanted fugitive. We are still no closer to a resolution in this case and while it would not surprise me for his remains to one day be found in the mountains of Northern Arizona. But given his obvious sense of arrogance and superiority, I find it hard that after killing his family that he would take his own life.
I’m no psychiatrist but I just find it hard to grasp that a man rids himself of his biggest problem that he perceived in his life, only to end it shortly afterwards. To me personally, that makes no sense. If I think that highly of myself and I am out for to stick it to someone I despise as much as one can I assume he did Mary at the end, why not enjoy the freedom that I have created for myself as dark as that may sound.
Maybe it wasn’t the other woman that aided him in his escape, maybe it was a friend. Someone that was willing to accept the evil that this man committed whether it was to be with them even if he were simply using them to aid in his flight from justice. What I do not know however is would he have killed them also to cover the loose end this scenario would generate.
One day they might generate a conscience and decide to turn him in. As soon as he had developed a level of comfort in his escape from authorities then this person would have reached the end of their usefulness and perhaps Mr Fisher had done away with them also.
This is simply my thoughts on this matter and I sincerely hope that nobody else has become a victim of this man. I can only hope the Arizona elements claimed his life after he took the lives of his defenseless children who had their entire lives ahead of them. Ok, you’re afraid of them experiencing divorce like you did, that doesn’t give you the selfish right to prevent them from experiencing such an adversity and after all they may grow stronger because of it.
Even if you had grown to hate Mary, for what ever wrongs real or perceived that you could attribute to her. Why not just be the bigger individual and walk away rather than engage in primitive behavior? Your Children would still grow up and live out a full life, but thanks to your selfishness, they will never get that chance. The chance that all people deserve, to experience adversity and choose how they will let it affect them.
You chose to be weak, selfish and pathetic. Now all that we can hope for is that one day you will stand trial for the evil you chose to commit. Maybe the wild elements of Arizona saved the tax payers some money from having to prosecute this selfish coward and that an explorer with the right equipment will find whats left of you in the depths of a cave network and finally put an end to this matter.
But I cannot help shake the possibility that your cowardly being still walks this Earth thinking that you have escaped the grasp of law enforcement and judgement in this matter. One day you will slip in complacency and the answer the FBI or local law enforcement needs to capture you will present itself and this matter will finally be put to rest…
