There's one thing that's always troubled me about the theory that Paul Freshour was the Circleville Writer, and responsible for the attempted murder of Mary Gillespie (and also possible involvement in Ron Gillespie's death)....what was the motive? It's clear that the original letters wanted to stop this alleged affair going on between Mary and the superintendent, so what stake would Paul Freshour have in that? Would he really be that concerned about exposing an affair between his non blood sister-in-law and one of her coworkers? The apparent lack of motive for Freshour to commit any of these crimes is one of the biggest reasons why I think he's innocent.

And I still stand by my statement that the townspeople of Circleville used the "letter writer" as a way to tarnish others reputations and spread gossip. I think there were several writers, personally.
