CINCINNATI -- Mary Griffin-Able expected James Able back within minutes when he left home May 30. Her husband of 12 years, whose smile and laugh she recalled fondly Wednesday night, told her he was going to the store for a pack of cigarettes.
Those minutes passed; Able didn't return.
Griffin-Able's phone rang.
"(The police) asked me the relationship with him," she said. "They said, ‘I am sorry. Your husband is deceased.'"
