Re: “Jason Baldwin Makes Appearance at Local Paradise Lost 3 Screening

M S wrote "Echols was seen in muddy clothes near the crime scene."
but forgets to mention that Damien was supposedly seen with his then girlfriend, Domini, by a woman who had 3 other "witnesses" in the car but none of the 4 could agree on the description or clothing. Her own husband was sitting in the seat next to her and said that neither person could be positively identified. As a matter of fact, the woman's own nephew was reported to have been secretly trying to wash mud AND BLOOD from his clothes on the night of the murders. The police decided that somehow all of that woman's statemant was incorrect EXCEPT the part putting Damien near the scene.

M S also writes "Misskelley confessed three separate times"
She must've forgotten that everything about Jessie's "confession" was inaccurate but the police again decided that although the time-line was wrong, the children were not raped as Jessie stated, and the matter of how they were murdered was incorrect also, Jessie was correct about Jason & Damien being there.

She also fails to remember a black gentleman walking into a restaraunt with covered in blood the night of the murders and getting blood all over the place, the police not thinking that was worth looking into (even though the children were still considered only missing at that point, somebody covered in blood walking into a restaraunt should be considered worth looking into when children are missing), or the fact that many hours later the police collect blood from the scene only to lose it AND tell the manager of the establishment that the glasses the gentleman left behind were of no importance to them.

M S explains that fiber microscopically similar to things in the Baldwin and Echols homes.
The examiner even states that those fibers could NOT be linked specifically to either Jason or Damien because they were from common clothes sold at Wal-Mart!
here is an excerpt from the actuall testimony:

Price: Lisa, in your report, there's a paragraph that states - and I think on - if you look at the June 29th, 1993 report, on page 11, um - the top paragraph - I think it - it's a paragraph that I've seen in quite a number of uh - fiber reports. Could you state um - repeat that sentence to the ladies and gentlemen of the jury and then I'll ask you to explain that afterwards.

Sakevicius: Ok. (reading) It is pointed out that fibers do not possess a sufficient number of unique, individual microscopic characteristics to be positively identified as having originated from a particular person, to the exclusion of all others. It should say 'item' instead of 'person'.

Price: - A 'person', alright.

Sakevicius: This means that if you were to go to Walmart, you'll see a rack of clothing and all of the clothing on it is the same. It could be that all the fibers were made at the same time and they'll have the same characteristics. And a number of people might have that garment in their household. So if I find a fiber similar to another item, then it can't nece - it doesn't necessarily mean it came from that item. It could've come from ano - one of these other items that was hanging on that same rack.

Since we are on the "fiber issue" let's not forget that a "negroid" hair was found on chris Byers
more from the actuall testimony:
Fogleman: Ok. Oh, on uh - did you recover uh - on a sheet uh - a single negroid hair?

Sakevicius: There was a single negroid hair recovered off of a sheet, I believe it as off of the Byers - used to cover the Byers child.

Fogleman: Alright, were there any other negroid hairs recovered?

Sakevicius: I don't believe so.

(Hmmm.... negroid hair on one of the white victims, Black man covered in blood and wet clothes in the vicinity of the crime, I do believe that could be evidence of a white teen killing them.)

I could go on about how the knife in evidence wasn't even linked to the case; the prosecutor even stated that the murder weapon "may have resembled this style of knife" and destroy other parts of her claims but I won't because everybody knows that none of the evidence put them at the scene and they were convicted because they wore dark clothes, long hair, and listened to heavy metal music.
This case was nothing but a modern day witch-hunt that delayed the families of all children involved true justice.
