There was a natural spring near the abandoned car, so many people thought that she drowned herself there. Others suggested the incident was a publicity stunt. More chillingly, however, some evidence seemed to convince authorities that her unfaithful husband, Archie Christie, was involved. Eleven days later, Christie was found alone, and using a different name. She had been living in a hotel since the day after her disappearance.
