    Murder of Mickey Bryan

    An absolutely fascinating case, and a well-written article.

    But I'm gonna warn you - and don't say I didn't warn you - this is only Part 1 of the story. It will continue in the NYT next week.

    Fascinating indeed.

    I feel like her brother may have something to do with it, but I may change my mind after I have read more.

    My feelings as well.
    I've been tempted to search for more info but I don't want to detract from the quality\enjoyment of the next article by advance knowledge.
    The writing is too good for that.

    Yeah. There was soooooo much discussion in Part 2 about the blood spatter analysis. It kinda made it drag for me, but it was still interesting.

    I'm on third section of part I, and so far I think the brother did it too.

    That is one of the most fascinating cases I've ever read.
    To really know people is to be able to read between the lines on their faces.

    It sounds like blood splatter analysis is a real crock, at least as it is generally practiced.

    Agreed. A 40 hour class, and then you're an "expert witness" in a capital trial?

    Yeah.
    They should use all of the tools in the scientific arsenal against crime fighting.
    Lie detectors, zodiac predispositions and phrenology come to mind.

    Better yet, heal the victim with homeopathy and let them do the testifying.
