Yeah she did and in addition another person within the same group named Greg Mitchell gave himself up to a friend shortly before he passed away describing how the events of that night still traumatized him years afterwards and how horrible guilty he felt for his involvement in the crime.

That's one point that always seems to reverberate with me: How MacDonald's story matches that of Helena Stokely, the woman in "the floppy har." I don't see how two people who have never met before could tell the same story...

Huhm, Lets see corrupt prosecuter, trying to just get a conviction to better their own name and career, never bother looking at other poss suspects or senarios.... taking advice from the victims family in that the suspect is guilty just lock them up don't bother having a trail. Sounds familiar-----of course the Duke Lacross case-----oh wait or do I mean the Jeff Mac case. Luckily this is 2007 and we were able to expose the fraud prosecuter was in the Duke case. Kadrmas15 your right, both the jokers should have gone to jail.
ps- I have written to MacDonald camp. I received a response within days, from a volunteer from his legal team that operates the website. No they did not ask for $ ....they just appriciated the support and agknolegded that MacDonald received my e mail.

You guys might as well e-mail Manson, Richard Ramirez, and Gary Ridgeway.

Please send the good Doctor my regards.

I always thought this was an incredible story. On one hand, Dr. MacDonald's story is very far fetched, but on the other hand my intuition says he is telling the truth. It's one thing to kill your wife (not that you don't need to be sick in the head to do it), but to kill your two little girls? I know there are people in this world evil enough to do that, but I just don't believe Dr. MacDonald is one of them.

innocent.

After reading this thread, I did some searching on the internet and came to the conclusion that his story is less "far fetched" than I originally thought. On http://www.themacdonaldcase.org/Case_Overview.html it says that samples were submitted for DNA testing in March, 2006. Has anybody heard about any results? I hope a valid conclusion comes from this.

I found a blurb about the dna results but not sure I fully understand it. It seems to me like they found dna on all the victims that didn't match MacDonald's as well as some that did:

35. March, 2006: The AFIP (DNA lab) releases the preliminary results of the DNA tests, filing them with the district court for the judge's evaluation. The results from the 15 exhibits tested include unsourced hairs under the nail of Kristen MacDonald and on the body of Colette MacDonald, as well as hairs from the family members, and some that yielded insufficient data for testing.

Well I think comparing Dr. MacDonald to Richard Ramirez and Gary Ridgeway is overstepping it just a bit. As for Manson he never killed anyone as far as we know but had others do his dirty work for him. As for Dr. MacDonald, my opinion on him is well known on here so I will not repeat it. Awsi, I hope your attempt at contacting Dr. MacDonald is successful.

I was looking for the e mail that was sent to me by MacDonalds web site volunteer. Now this was over the fall (2006) that I e mailed. I do recall they had hopes in getting an answer from the courts sometime in Jan/Feb this year on a new trail. Hopefully I can find that e mail response- I have a feeling I might have accidentally deleted it...and than forward the substance of it.............for kadrmas 15, unfortunately the trail on the Bike Path Rapest has gone cold again...police have no other leads...it appears he still has the upper hand on the law.

Hey Buffalo Bill, well that is too bad. I wonder if they will ever catch him? I saw an update thing on AMW on him. Apperantly they got some tips that are promising but nothing concrete. They arent really any closer to catching him as you said. I just wonder when he will strike next. I think he will probably lay low for a little while longer and wait for the publicity to die down somemore. What do you think? As for MacDonald, I hope he didnt do it. I understand what you are saying in that you hope he did it because you wouldnt want to think he did it, but at the same time I would never hope anyone did any crime like that.

I think he was definitely innocent. The man's memory was the main piece of "evidence" used against him since his story didn't check out with the physical evidence. I mean come on, what was his motive? Kids wetting the bed?

Also with all the other people coming forward (like that patient who phoned his house) I don't see him being guilty. It's terrible that he's still in prison apparently.

I've always believed him to be innocent. The time set during this crime, there were a lot of crazy, psychological messed-up people on LSD comitting criems. Look at the Manson Family.
