Two murders that won’t go away : Sam Sheppard is still a fugitive. Jeffrey MacDonald still protests his innocence… MacDonald’s pregnant wife and two children were murdered in Feb 1970 a month before I was born… over thirty years ago. Murders cast long shadows, I guess.

The Kennedy/Nixon of true crime, with Dr.MacDonald more like Jack & Dr.Sheppard more like Dick. Most tragically,the children are always the eternal victims.The shroud of mystery over MacDonald/Sheppard will ensure our fascination: DrSheppard’s guilt or innocence &DrMacDonald’s pathological lies.Unlike DrSheppard,MacDonald is a living witness who can set his case straight,maybe when he loses hope of any chance at a new trial.
