Couple’s troubled past and law enforcement miscue led to shooting


Questions remain about whether something could have been done to prevent the March 17 murder of Parisa Siddiqi at The Oaks mall.

But Siddiqi refused to cooperate and charges were dropped in January 2015. Crane and Siddiqi were married a short while later.
