In researching the Lake Waco Triple Murder, the attorneys, the New York writer, the Forensic Dentist, and the different members of law enforcement, one fact remains clear, Mr. Fred Dannen uncovered evidence proving, or at least raising questions about the Lake Waco Murders and the guilt of the defendants.
Dannen, actually faced down Truman Simons in 2001, and asked him why he framed Spence. This was at the McLennan County Sheriff’s Department, before Simons retired. By 2002, Dannen changed his mind and instead of being full of his former bravado, he decided to move to Mexico with his wealthy friend, Don Casey.
Dannen has not had a job in over 10 years, he lives off other people in Mexico and that doesn’t seem to bother him either. Nor does he tell anyone the truth, he blames Simons but doesn’t bother to tell anyone he is a “lap cat” for wealthy retirees, lives off the past glory of his 2 books from 1999, and plays Chamber Music at an Episcopal Church in San Miguel de Allende.
The glaring question is WHY hasn’t Texas Law Enforcement demanded answers from Dannen?

could depose him before trial or for Dannen’s name to be taken off the
defense’s witness list.
In past hearings, the defense has said it does not know where Dannen is
and that it can only get in touch with him via cell phone. In response to
Feazell’s motion Monday, the defense said it will make Dannen available
to the plaintiffs before the trial if he will be called as a witness.
That may prove impossible, however. Dannen, when reached by phone Monday,
said he is staying outside of the United States and that neither the
defense nor the plaintiffs know his location. Even if his whereabouts
were discovered, U.S. courts would have no jurisdiction over him, he
