This week, a California Forensics Scientist has finally decided to hand over valued DNA evidence to Texas on a Texas Case, the famous Lake Waco Triple Murder.
Those of us who have either read CARELESS WHISPERS by Carlton Stowers, 1986 winner of Best True Crime, or lived in Waco during the time of the murders and prosecution of David Wayne Spence, Anthony Melendez, Gilbert Melendez, and Muneer Deeb, have a renewed interest in this case since the announcement in 2011 that there was a chance that the wrong men were convicted.
If these defendants were wrongly convicted, that means David Wayne Spence will be the first case of a man being proven innocent post mortem in history.
With the evidence now at the Forensics Lab in Tarrant county, we begin a DNA watch, did they or didn’t they?
Updates from the Waco Press and others will be posted on this blog.
So, let’s wait this out together, any thoughts?
