When Senator Rodney Ellis had meetings on “false confessions” om 2010, many people went to Fredric Dannen and IPOT attorney Walter Reaves and asked them to include Anthony Melendez in that Legislative Session.
Not only did Dannen refuse, he chewed everyone out, refused to answer any questions AND when asked about the tapes, left people just hanging, he would not “confirm”, their existence in his possession.
Dannen and Reaves say that Tony’s supporters, and Tony himself, have put “privilege information” on the internet.
They ignore that Anthony Melendez, their own unhappy client, is the one who sends his correspondence because he does not trust Reaves/Dannen.
Lawyer Reaves went to get it from Tony in Spring of 2015 in a surprise visit to the Polunsky Unit.
Reaves and Dannen had DNA samples from Wilkins, Wilkins, Terry Harper, and Boatman, who they thought did the crime but not from Tony himself? Tony says that Wilkins, Wilkins, Harper and Boatman were “eliminated”, too bad TONY himself wasn’t.
Tony wrote Reaves more than once, telling him that he (Tony) did not believe he had ever given a DNA sample. He asked Reaves if Reaves had DNA from the others. No reply.
One would also ask, does Mr. Reaves or the Innocence Project of Texas have the DNA samples from David Wayne Spence? No, Spence died before these things were done.
Gilbert Melendez? No and he’s dead too.
Muneer Deeb? Dead.
They are angry because we question them, yet, how can anyone with any sense at all not see that this is some kind of very strange secret that IPOT, Walter Reaves, Fredric Dannen, just let continue with no end in sight.
A Public Information Request to the Innocence Project of Texas was sent asking them if the “DNA HAD BEEN FUNDED”, their pat answer when questioned is “funding is always a problem”.
They wrote this blog back and said they didn’t have to answer and didn’t.
Interestingly enough, FRED DANNEN paid for $30K of DNA testing, himself, that seemed to be okay, not a conflict, even though he is the “paralegal” for Skip Reaves, do you not think that if people knew the truth about this case needed funding that they would fund it?
Could this be a conflict? Did Dannen get an “Advance” then go to Mexico? He surely took the Soros Grant and didn’t deliver.
Don’t think Anthony Melendez hasn’t asked either. Melendez is forced to send Reaves “return receipt requested” letters and it takes hours to hand write a letter, he never hears back unless it’s RRR.
So, one must ask, who is running the show?
Are we still waiting on FRED’s Dannen, the famous New York Times Best Selling Author’s Book for justice?
I don’t think so.
