Quoth the Raven "Nevermo"

I follow this case, which is the most litigated federal murder in history. MacDonald killed his pregnant wife and two young daughters at Fort Bragg in 1970. He has a appeal in April.
MacDonald claimed that hippies came into his house and brutally killed his family but left him alive with minor wounds. This was just after the Manson murders so he was using the story of evil hippies. The physical evidence in the apartment did not match his story, which is what convicted him, although he was not brought to trial for 9 years. He was in the army when he killed his family and he had an article 32 hearing, which is hearing to determine if there will be a court martial. Due to errors made by the army investigators, the case was dropped.
Freddy Kasab, Colette MacDonald's stepfather at first supported Mac but when he read the transcripts of the artice 32 hearing he realized that he was lying and that he killed his family.
