      Wake up Whackers!  JT is in the house…

       

      The Borden case has been flogged by many revisionist theories. Some are entertaining and others are pedestrian.  But as we know, Lizzie alone hacked her father and stepmother, so any new spins to these old murders just won’t hunt. 

       

      But what about Albert DeSalvo?  Did the “Boston Strangler” just make the whole thing up?

       

      The only evidence against him is his confession, riddled with the same errors from newspaper articles he studied with his photographic memory.  Three eyewitnesses who saw suspicious men near murder scenes failed to identify him.  And he was convicted of the 1964 “Green Man” crimes, a series of non-violent rapes where victims described the perpetrator as polite and remorseful – not a logical progression for a man suspected of 13 brutal homicides in 1962-1963.

       

      All the later/younger victims of the “Boston Strangler” were probably slain by men who knew them – investigators developed a solid suspect with motive in each case.  Those same investigators scoff at the idea of DeSalvo as a serial killer – even Albert himself often hinted his confession was fabricated to cash in on the notoriety it would bring.

       

      Or what about Sam Sheppard?  Was he the most wrongly convicted innocent man in true crime history?

       

      It is astounding that his original defense lawyers in 1954 were not allowed access to the murder house during the investigation.  What they would have found was this:

      1.       The blood trail leading from his wife’s bludgeoned body was a type that did not match either Sam or Marilyn.

      2.       Marilyn’s broken teeth proved she bit her killer and drew blood – Sam had serious injuries but was not bleeding.

      3.       The condition of her clothing and presence of another man’s semen indicated this murder was a sex crime.

      4.       Marilyn was raped by her killer – direct contradiction to the prosecution theory of a spousal rage killing.

      5.       Nail polish, leather, a cigarette butt and other items were found that couldn’t be matched to the Sheppard home.

       

      Police assumed the trail was Marilyn’s blood dripped from the murder weapon as Sam carried it through the house.  If they had bothered to check (or let the defense test it) they would have found it to be the blood of a third party.  This would have meant an automatic acquittal for Dr. Sam.

       

      And Richard Eberling, a suspected serial killer with the motive, means, and opportunity to kill Marilyn, was the Sheppard’s window washer.  But he was never even questioned in the original investigation.

       

      Just some random enigma’s that keep true crime writer’s up at night…

          In her book, "Edgar Casey on ESP", Doris Agee wrote that Edgar Casey, in one of his readings, indicated  that Bruno Richard Hauptmann had not been working alone.  If true, how many were involved? 
          a)  If only the guy who returned to Germany, how did he manage to launder $35,000?
          b)  If there had been four of them, why hadn't they taken the ladder away by the same way they had gotten       it there?
          c)  Hauptmann was a carpenter.  Has anyone ever heard of a carpenter doing such a sloppy job of putting
               a ladder together?
          d)  Hauptmann could have been the lookout.  But that don't wash either, as he would have spilled the beans      and gotten either immunity or only a few years in prison.
          e) The police made the facts fit their theory, as had been done in the Borden case.
          f)  The go-between.  Could he have been the mastermind?  Like:  He hired someone, who hired the guy          who died in Germany, who hired Hauptmann.  Thus, Hauptmann had no way of  knowing who was top          man once the chain was broken.  How deep did the cops look into this (go-between's) life after it was all      over?
          Got to go.
