Default Hello Again...

Now I have begun to search for the original transcripts of his case, Feb 1983 in Pickway County, Ohio. I have found what appear to be his appeals in 1988 and 1992. Perhaps these are not, Perhaps they are. I am looking for the original, since now we have heard his side it is time to read from start to finish the court transcripts. Also if someone has copies or can locate copies of the letters please post a link. So we can perhaps see for ourselves, if the writing matches.

Something seems off about this report I am placing below this.

I have asked before if we had any members here that lived in Ohio who wouldn't mind getting the court transcripts from his trial. No one has volunteered to do it yet. All trial transcripts are public record (except in rare cases which shouldn't apply here), so it should just be a matter of having someone go to the courthouse and get them. I don't know if it can be done online nowadays or not.

At any rate, Paul's essay is the first pretty much any of us have ever gotten about this case outside of newspaper articles or the UM segment. This is one case where information is really hard to come by, at least on the Internet.

There's two things I would love to have in my hands:

1) Paul's court transcripts

2) The actual letters

Transcripts should be possible. The letters seem highly unlikely to ever surface. However, I am confident that if I were to see them that I can get a pretty good idea of who might have written them (based on the verbiage and style). I already think most of them were written by a woman, but I am only going by the pieces that UM showed in the segment.

Someone posted on Youtube that there was supposed to be a new documentary coming out about this case. They said the letters were being handed over to a team of experts to examine forensically (hand-writing and physical evidence). I have never seen any other mention of such a documentary. Does anyone know if this is true?

Quick Question: Is the Circleville Writer still writing his threatening letters?

That has to be the most pathetic lie in UM history.

thx for posting MattC.that's really sad.he was only 70,(I still think that's fairly young) and had lost 10 yrs of his life in prison for a crime he didn't commit,(imo).And had lost a son as well.

Agreed. If a man was tormenting your family with letters accusing you of doing something you were innocent of, why would you START doing it? "Hmmm, now that the letter writer mentions it that superintendent is kinda hot..."

Even though I don’t recall them interviewing her, I didn’t really care of Mary Gillispie. She denied the affair with the superintendent when her husband confronted her about it. But after he dies, it turns out they started a relationship.. just by coin-cid-ence.. sure it was.. (Lol) And if the affair wasn’t true, why didn’t she tell him about the letter before? Also, why didn’t she take threats to her children’s life seriously? Why didn’t she go to the cops when she got the first letter? This case always got to me especially because Fishour was in jail for 10 yrs for something he didn’t do!!


~Edit: I know some of the stuff I mentioned on this thread was brought up earlier, sorry just wanted to throw in my 2 cents  I like everyones opinions/theories on this!

That lie was so bad it was actually insulting. Most people know when it is time to cut their losses and come clean.

Now would be the time to see if the Freshour family receives any letters be it real or just a sick prank.

mary declined to be on the show,didn't she? which was very telling in and of itself,IMO,seeing as it was her own husb. who was killed. (or had an 'accident',whichever you prefer).Paul was the only one who spoke up for him.

You would think since it was HER husband she'd want to appear on the show and get the word out to find the killer. BUT thats my opinion. I really think she declined because it's pretty damn obvious she was having the affair all along and it would make her look bad.
