Re: “Life After Death

A sorrowful and hideous crime and a far far sad thing. As someone who has just watched the documentary without prior knowledge and as someone who has a very working knowledge of the law, crime, victim and perpetrator profiling, as well as experience working with young people with an I.Q. of the sub 75 range, I cannot help but raise a number of questions. Within the first few minutes of the docu. I became alert when I heard it happened behind a truck wash stop. Was there any investigation at all? It seems as if the police assumed they had their weirdos and did not do much beyond that. I also detected that the unfortunate Melissa Byers had a presentation that was not due only to sorrow and deep grief. She looked drugged out but I thought perhaps it was prescription. As for the Mr. Byers....very disturbing indeed to read that he has had police issues involving young children, instigating violence and performing violence. His comforting of Melissa at the end and his proclaiming 'they won't hurt no more babies' is hauntingly similar to Jon Benet Ramsey's mother saying 'I did not hurt that child' and the unforgettable Susan Smith pleading for the black car jacker to 'please return my babies'. These arguments I present are also of the 'emotional' side. Just give these guys another trial and a fair chance. Try them individually and not one and then two others. And do not rely on the testimony of a sub 75 I.Q. defendant.
