Fatal Vision case comes up again

Wow, after all this time.

I always figured him to be not guilty.

So much time lost for him.

I remember the movie did not do him any favors.

If/when he gets exonerated, he should sue the producer and director.

they were based on the book and the author apparently admits it wasn't all fact based.

Regardless, his wife and children were murdered by somebody.

It doesn't seem to be clear cut enough to get him actually

exonerated, but who knows? Even if the hairs they have DNA

from don't match he or his wife and daughters, just look at

how many people come in and out of your house on an even

semi-regular basis. And if some or all of the actual perpetrators

are deceased, you couldn't even get their DNA to try for a match,

unless you exhumed bodies and all that.

Tough case.

I recently saw a program, was it 48 Hours? Not sure. I think he is guilty, always did. Not that it means much. When people blame hippies or black strangers they tend to be lying.

Unless the hippie did it.

Trouble is, back in those days people couldn't tell a hippie from a druggie with long hair. Especially in a place like Ft Bragg, NC.

^ And apparently, the woman 'hippie' that it might have been died,

and also the police officer who said he saw her at an intersection

or something that night... memory fails me a bit at this point.

After all this time, you would think he would have said something to someone, if he did do it. He has stuck to the same story for a long long time now.

I originally read this account of the story a few years ago and thought it was a good account of what happened. This site has stories on a lot of crimes that are very interesting.
