You got your stolen cars mixed up.

Robin is talking about Hilton Solomon's car, which was stolen about an hour before Oliver left for work and disappeared. When the car was recovered not long after, there were video receipts found inside traced to Oliver's card and blood on one of the receipts that matched Oliver's.

That is correct. The perpetrator likely stole this car, so they could abduct Oliver and murder him without anything being traced back to them. I have always found it strange, however, that Oliver's receipts wound up in the car which didn't belong to him. I'm presuming they just fell out of his pocket or something during a struggle and the killer didn't notice.

CP says no one knew Oliver's bloody type and DNA testing wasn't available then and now the sample is too degraded to be tested, so it's unknown if it's Oliver's blood or not.

You had to feel bad for Oliver. I mean, finally getting the car of his dreams, only to have it towed away after a little while, and then go back to driving that rustbucket. And then to be murdered like that.

Police botched this case big time. First of all they didn't know that witnesses had previously disappeared in cases relating to him until Oliver went missing. Secondly it took them three days to locate his car which apparently was only a few blocks from his house?

Yes they did. This is why so many people won't talk to police. If they want people to provide testimony they need to do their diligence. I think most cops do a great job but the few bad apples ruin it. Hopefully our standards go up even higher than what they are now and were then. I would remind folks that law enforcement in our country is good compared to other places. And it goes back to the American people standing up and demanding justice like we always do.

I barely saw this case for the first time about a year ago. A total unnecessary murder and a shame that Oliver got no justice.

Was it ever confirmed if Watson was/wasn't out on bail at the time of Munson's abduction + homicide?

And I do wonder if perhaps Munson had been White and lived in an affluent part of his city/town, that perhaps he would've gotten police protection. At the very least a better effort would've been made to get him protection. Race relations weren't all that in the 80s, especially in the South (New England as well)

Just saw this case for the first time today and yeah, I think Watson is guilty as sin. If he personally didn't have anything to do with Oliver's disappearance, then I'd bet real money he had someone do it (for a guy like that, bumping someone off as a "f*** you" kind of move doesn't seem at all out of the question.....also, if it was a random drive by or whatever, why would the bloody receipt be in a different car?)

The ineptitude on the part of the police pisses me off, but is unfortunately, not surprising. I would think though, even back in 84, there would be some record somewhere of what Oliver's blood type was. Get that, run it up against the bloody receipt and then go from there.

I am not even sure that Watson had anything to do with this-why kill one witness when multiple witnesses are giving evidence against you? Sure, if this was the only guy prepared to stand up in court it might make some sense, but not when there are a list of others who were going to do so. Plus why would you wait a year & do it just three days before you come to trial? Obviously that means you will be the prime suspect. Also he plead guilty anyway, so why would you kill just one witness & then plead guilty a few days later? What do we know about Munson other than he was a teacher, but what company did he keep? Was he into drugs & maybe he got ripped off & killed on a deal? Was he involved in a love triangle or was there a jealous ex on the scene? Was the guy who stole the other guys car just a murderer intent on killing & Munson was the unfortunate target?
