Default Need a copy of the Jeffrey MacDonald case that aired on May 15th

I believe this was the 1st time Lifetime has shown it (it wasn't even part of the regular Unsolved Mysteries series). My VCR timer was off by an hour, so I didn't get any of it recorded.

UPDATE: no longer need this episode...

I saw that episode as well, though I was unable to tape it (I was out of blank tapes and didn't have time to buy them). There was also another case that aired in the same episode, which was (if I remember correctly) several black sailors who were found guilty for disobeying orders on loading bombs or something like that. An update showed these men were cleared from the supposed crime. I also remember that after the ending credits, there was an on-screen memoriam for Robert Stack.

I think this was the first time Lifetime aired that episode. I don't recall seeing this before until now.

Oh Man!

The Jeffrey McDonald Murder Case has been my life's passion of research for 20 years. If you are still convinced of his guilt, please get a copy of Fatal Justice: Reinvestigating the McDonald Murders, by Jerry Potter and Fred Boast. The authors spent over a decade researching the case and through Freedom of Information Act Documents, 100's of pieces of evidence were never shown to the jury that overwhelming support his innocense, learn about:

1. The black wool fibers found in the living room found to be from Helena Stockley's wig, never reported in the case until 15 years after trial.

2. Candle wax found in the living room where McDonald said he was attacked.

3. Blood spoots found in the living room where McDonald said he was attacked. (These were kept off of all government reports.) The feds insisted at trial no blood was found in the living room. FBI agents proved differently but the chart that prosector Brian Murtaugh presented at trial had no blood spots on. The original lab notes show something very different.

4. 22 inch long synthetic blond-hair wig fibers found in the living room DNA tested against McDonalds own hair and the hair of the victoms. The fibers did not match

5. A phone call the night of the murders to the McDonald house. Helena Stockley answered the phone, the caller asked for Dr. Macdonald. She says, she was high on mesacline, laughed said he wasn't there and hung up.

6. Evidence from Greg Mitchell, Helena Stockley's boyfriend who confessed to killing McDonald's wife and children. When he was being treated for drug addiction at an isolated house, investigators went to the home. Scrawled on one of the walls in Mitchell's room were the words...."I killed McDonald's wife and children!"

7. How Joe McGinnis falsifyed 100's of pages in the now proven Fictional "Fatal Vision" after he had lost his contract with his first publisher. How the original version had portrayed McDonald as innocent. How McGinnis diet pills rage theory was proven false in civil court when McGinnis said that the story was fabricated and said regarding the diet pill theory...."I'm not convinced it accually happened."

8. How prosecutors violated discovery motions by not turning key information over to the defense that proves McDonald's innconce. How investigators were made up of very youg and inexperienced cops. The lead investigator--this was his first murder case! Key evidence pointing to outside attackers directly was either damaged, destroyed, or purposly removed

9. How McDonald key prosecutor Jim Blackburn went to prision for a conviction of falsifying judge's signatires and embezzling money from his own law firm to buy himself land and two new cars!

10 How key forensic criminologist Michael Malone who was involved with the states case, knowingly planted evidence and falsifyed documents in other key cases. Also learn how two former FBI agents resigned from the case, to help research Fatal Justice, because they insisted that McDonald had been framed!

Default Jack1000, you are 1000% correct

I became convinced of McDonald's complete innocence many years ago, after viewing a British program that focused on many of the facts you listed. I believe his conviction is the premier travesty of modern American justice, easily eclipsing the O.J. verdict.

Helena Stokley is on tape confessing to her part in the crime, She even described a child's rockinghorse in McDonald's residence that she could not have known about otherwise. Plus, the guy who made the call that Stokely answered confirms he placed a call to that number, actually looking for a different Dr. McDonald, and that a bizarre woman answered with plenty of noise in the background. It was obviously Helena Stokely.

A month or so ago I posted a thread here asking, "Who was wrongly accused or convicted?" I mentioned Jeffrey McDonald and wrote that Joe McGinniss is the one who belongs in jail. After reading your post I am even more certain.

I may be the minority here due to my feelings that Ole Mac was indeed the killer of his entire family. We have a great discussion going on @ Crime & Justice. Please come for a visit or I would be glad to chat about this case here.

This case aired today. Did it originally air as part of the Final Appeal series in the fall of 1992?

I just confirmed that this case aired on the hour-long series premiere of Final Appeal: From the Files of Unsolved Mysteries on September 18, 1992.

I swear I am really dumb founded it when it comes to this case.. To me there is considerable evidence on both sides I really think there was enough reasonable doubt to declare a mistrail!.. But my instincts kinda wanna say he did it!

Bump.

If anyone has this entire uninterrupted episode - MacDonald and the seamen - in good quality off Lifetime I would be interested in trading for a copy.

Thanks.

I have never had a doubt in my mind that McDonald is guilty. He is one of the most arrogant men I have ever seen. I do believe that there were other people there that night, but I think he was too and was very much involved.
