Charlatans and roaches at every corner feeding off a tragedy
11 November 2020 | by avonal-97144See all my reviews

Obvious problems conveniently brushed aside: 1) If Helena Stoeckley was there then she can name the other 3 - why has no law enforcement chased after that? Pursued? Questioned? Polygraphed ? etc. 2) The family all had completely distinct, different blood types (A,B,O,AB) and the blood drop locations make McDonald a clear liar. This aspect was completely dropped. Why? Morris particularly side steps this one. Modern forensics, if any evidence samples are still preserved, will finalise and confirm this evil devils fate. 3) In the Stoeckley interview she is asked what she was wearing. Wow! Here comes the 'floppy hat', 'blond wig' and 'boots' story. How grossly infantile again assuming that mature adults are stupid and mind you aided and abetted by her complicit interviewers. Not a mention of a flowery blouse or a black skirt perhaps.. no ...floppy hat etc. Pathetic. 4) The wall that was painted? Mitchell does not include Macdonald on the wall as being murdered. As far as Macdonald's story is concerned he implied the killers assumed they had finished him so Mitchell would have assumed same yet he paints differently. What utter garbage fit for consumption by these imbeciles. The sickness of this case, but not worse than the sickness of the demise of those tragic three plus one unborn lives is the avalanche of roaches, who for pecuniary or promotion or limelight reasons have crawled out of the sewer to feed off this tragedy and milk whatever they can out of it and that applies to all the parties on every side of this issue and the worst is this charlatan Morris.
