Husband of slain hostage describes feelings, is anxious for answers

STOCKTON, Calif.- The husband of Misty Holt-Singh, the woman killed July 16 during a crime spree that included a bank robbery, kidnapping and a shootout with police, says he still talks to his wife.

"I talk to her, I'll sit in the car and talk, or be laying in bed, and talk to her, of course," said Paul Singh. He talked with News10 about how his family is doing after the tragic outcome of those crimes. Two of three suspects were also killed.

"We're getting counseling for everyone, me and the kids.. There's shock, sadness, anger. 'Why did this happen, why isn't she here?' There are times you wake up still in shock, I'll look over at her side of the bed and she's not there," Singh said.

Singh said he met this week with Stockton Chief of Police Eric Jones as he tries to get information about the chain of events that took the life of his wife.

"Obviously, the Monday-morning quarterback will say, with the helicopter, could they have backed off, there are questions that I and others think. The answers will come," he said.

Singh has an attorney from Southern California, a friend of the family, assisting him.

"I have to focus on my kids, get them ready for school, pay the bills. Misty did so much and I'm not a lawyer. I need someone to help me look into this and help me get answers," Singh said.

Singh grew up in the Stockton area and said he would always be the one defending the city. Despite of what happened to his wife, he'll continue.

"There's a lot of good in Stockton. It's still a good town," he said.
