Childhood's End

Post by Ed Woychowsky » Fri Jul 15, 2011 6:17 pm

News of the murder ended my childhood.

The conviction was all based upon circumstantial evidence, but it didn't matter. The crime was so horrendous someone would have to pay. After all, killing the victim was bad enough, but cooking and devouring him was crossing the line.

In their deliberations the jury ignored both the defendant's friendship with the victim and the fact that the single piece of damning evidence could have belonged to anyone. In the end none of this mattered.

I hear tell before the switch was thrown the convicted murder's last word's were; “Hunney BBQ sauce, oh bother!”
