A man suspected in the disappearance his two children, who authorities now fear are dead, had told his ex-wife that he would not abide by a new custody arrangement, his ex-wife said in court records.

Authorities say accountant Manuel Gehring (search), 44, drove across the country starting July 4 or 5, possibly with his children. Court records say 14-year-old Sarah and 11-year-old Philip were in tears when they were last seen with their father leaving a July 4 fireworks show in Concord.

What are the chances that the children will be recovered alive? We’ll ask prosecutor Shawndya Simpson, and defense attorney Joshua Dratel.

Plus, what might prompt someone to commit murder in their family? We’ll get insight from Dr. Evan Nelson, forensic psychologist.
