Postponement granted in case of park murders as evidence begins to point elsewhere
As reported here in the Washington Post and here in the Richmond paper and here in the Roanoke paper, the prosecution theory in the W.D. Va. for the alleged "hate crime" murder of two women in the Shenandoah National Park is coming unraveled as re-examination of the evidence points to someone other than the defendant, which would make the "hate crime" aspect a complete fiction. In any event, the Court has granted a request to delay the trial.
