Prosecutors and police officers on Saipan have loose lips, especially when they are drunk, which for many on Saipan is every night. Days after Emie's body was found the name Joseph Crisostimo was whispered over barbecues and dinner tables. And he finally got his due.
There are more than 30 unsolved murders on Saipan. Most recently a pair of farmers were murdered and torched, then there was the couple who were murdered in 2012, and the young Luhk sisters have been missing since 2011. Solving one murder creates hope that the society is heading in the right direction.
