|Richard Hickock & Perry Smith|
In the comments of this post from 2008, "Lonnie" reminds me I never followed through on this. Now it seems investigators are giving this case another, another look. Now I have to admit, I haven't followed this case very carefully due to lack of information coming out. The last I heard, two of the original suspects were cleared by the DNA evidence. The primary suspect was a cousin of Mr. Walker's who was believed to have been having an affair at one time with Christine Walker. The affair likely didn't happen and the DNA cleared the suspect. The other man who was cleared was Cliff Walker's friend, Don McLeod the man who discovered the crime. The investigators still had about 20 suspects to test.
With this latest news of the exhumation of Hickock and Smith for testing, I can only assume the other twenty people have been cleared as well. In all, 30 suspects have been ruled out. Now they are exhuming the bodies of the Hickock and Smith and personally, I think this is a high profile waste of time. Update: I was right; no match.
