“It was in Chicago at the Greyhound Bus Station that I first found out I was on the most wanted list. I was waiting for the bus to Norfolk, Virginia, and I went to the newsstand, and there was my picture in True Detective magazine–wanted for double murder. The thinking criminal could go a lifetime without being apprehended if he played it the right way. I spent a year on the most wanted list, something I’m not proud of, but at the time considered it a game. The FBI concentrated its efforts on me because I did things to aggravate them. Because I found out later I was in crime only for the recognition. I wouldn’t let the FBI know where I was going, but I wanted them to know I’d been there. I changed cities often and completely reversed habits to throw off what they had on my previous modus–operandi. I found cab drivers to be the most observant people, and many times was confronted by citizens who knew they knew me, but couldn’t make the final association of the top ten list.” *(*Edward Wayne Edwards, Chicago Tribune interview, August 5, 1975.)

By Ray N (Ray_N) (user-38ld806.dialup.mindspring.com – 18.104.22.168) on Friday, June 07, 2002 – 03:30 pm:
A while back there were some folks on here that posted about a Zodiac trial. I think it was in reference not just to Allen, but to anybody accused of being Z. The conclusions were that the case would be a defense attorney’s dream and the prosecution would suffer a terrible defeat because there was no physical evidence, no eyewitnesses, and the fact that 33 years have passed. Well, with the Skakel verdict in, maybe these same people will realize that it’s possible for jurors to decide cases that are well-presented without 21st century evidence. From an online news report:
“Some legal experts initially thought the prosecution’s case would be a disaster, with no direct physical evidence, no eyewitnesses and the blurring of memories after the passage of 27 years.”
“For all our fascination with forensics, for all the absolutes of science, confessions count, witnesses count,” said University of California law professor Susan Estrich. “In many respects, the time lag made it an old-fashioned trial, a question of who — not what — do you believe.”
Does everybody still agree that it would be impossible to convict Allen (if alive) in light of the results of this trial?
EDWARDS ALSO BLOGGED ABOUT THE MARTHA MOXLEY/SKAKEL VERDICT USING THE NAME Oklahoma_Mike
By Mike (Oklahoma_Mike) (22.214.171.124) on Friday, June 07, 2002 – 09:21 pm:
Re: Surpirse at at the Skakal verdict;
Notice a pattern in the past 6 months or so? Every high profile trial (those that attracted nationwide attention) in the past few months has resulted in a guilty verdict? I think that since September 11 jurors aren’t interested in hearing any escuses. If the prosecution presents a basicly sound (not necessarily airtight) case the jury isn’t interested in what the defense has to say. Moral of the story?: Just incase I’m right, don’t commit any crimes!
