Judah 03-16-2005 02:05 PM

Oh good. Maybe he and O.J. can now join forces to look for the real killers of their wives.

It was, essentially, a circumstantial case. They had no hard evidence at all. Circumstantial cases, very often, end up in acquittals.

Yeah...same thing here in Vancouver today, when two suspects in the Air India bombing case (1985 bombing of airplane that killed 329 people over the Atlantic) were found not guilty. 20 years and millions of dollars of investigation and no final resolution. Circumstantial evidence and dodgy prosecution witnesses.

But sometimes, if the defendant looks really really mean, ends in the death penalty.

right........


Melon is correct. This was build on very weak circumstantial evidence. The strongest part of the prosecution's case was Blake's motive.

Just heard.

Tech 03-16-2005 05:40 PM

wow also just heard. Prosecution needed a stronger case!

all_i_want 03-17-2005 02:39 AM

they didnt really have any evidence though. the only witnesses they brought were a couple of junkies. i think he was guilty.

on another note, another guy who killed his wife (and his child) scott peterson, was sentenced to death the other day. he will spend approximately 20 years in jail before his execution will be considered.

air india bombing was another legal event, and one of the sons of the victims said 'apparently its ok to blow up planes in canada!' :huh:

OK, not guilty, weak case by the prosecution. It's fine with me, that's the way our courts are supposed to work.

MrsSpringsteen 03-17-2005 04:23 AM

I think he did it or hired someone else to do it . The jury said the witnesses had no credibility.

They showed him on the news playing guitar outside the courtroom and complaining that he's broke

and pool their money for a reward!

I didn't follow this case or the Peterson case at all. We've been so saturated with the details in the news, that I have picked up on the basics. Was the Peterson case less circumstantial than the Blake case?
