In July Lori Hacking's disappearance in Salt Lake City launched a massive search. In August it ended at her own home as husband Mark, 28, was charged with her murder after allegedly confessing to his brothers. As he awaits his April trial, Lori's mother, Thelma Soares, had "Hacking" removed from Lori's head-stone at Utah's Orem City Cemetery.
