Murder Suspect Left Trail of Evidence on His Blog

For most defense attorneys, a client's confession to police is bad enough.  But a murder/kidnapping suspect in Idaho allegedly made incriminating remarks to the entire world via his blog.  After Joseph Edward Duncan III was arrested this week for allegedly kidnapping two children and murdering their family members, police found out that he had operated a blog.  The blog contains plenty of incriminating evidence, including his discussion of his moral struggles with right vs. wrong, and then a cryptic post which states that the "demons have taken over" shortly before the crimes occurred.  Story . . .  [Mark Godsey]
