Bizarre Twists And Evidence Keep Turning Case On

(CBS) On the evening of Sept. 29, 2000, former
Indiana state trooper David Camm came home to
find his 35-year-old wife Kim, and his
five-year-old daughter Jill murdered, both shot
execution-style in the head; his seven-year
old-son Brad died after being shot in the chest.
Just three days later,
Camm, 36, was arrested and charged with the murders.
Camm has adamantly denied any involvement in the
Correspondent Richard Schlesinger has spent more than
five years investigating the case, one with bizarre
evidence and many unusual twists that would lead to an
ending that no one expected.
David Camm spoke to 48 Hours shortly after his 2000
arrest, recalling what he saw when he drove up to the
garage of his home.
"I started to pull my truck in, I get up to the
threshold and thatís when I saw the first stream of
blood," Camm told Schlesinger. "I get down in her face
and yell 'Kim, Kim!' And her eyes Ė I could tell she was
His children, Brad and Jill, were still inside the
family SUV. "I looked in the back and I looked to the
right, thatís when I saw Brad, kind of like he was
stretched over the seat and his little eyesóI could just
barely see his little eyes," Camm recalled. "I could see
little Jill, she was still sittiní there in her seat and
her head, her little head was down in her lap."
Up until four months before the murders, Camm had been a
trooper with the Indiana State Police and a lot of
people were stunned when he was charged with the
It's basic police work to look at the surviving spouse
as the number one suspect but to those who knew Camm, it
seemed like a rush to judgment. He is from a large and
influential family and had no obvious motive. And there
was one other thing: he had what appeared to be an
"David was at the gym at the time his family was killed.
He was at the Georgetown Community Church playing
basketball," says Camm's uncle Sam Lockhart, who from
day one has insisted his nephew did not do it.
Lockhart says he was at the same gym at the same time,
watching his nephew play. Ten other people say they can
prove it too; they say they were all at the basketball
game that night with Camm.
All of the men said they saw Camm at the gym and that he
sat out the second game that night at approximately
7:30, around the same time police believe the murders
occurred. Several players said they remembered seeing
Camm on the sidelines. Another man at the gym that night
also says he spoke with Camm.
If Camm snuck out of a basketball game at the gym, raced
home, killed his family and raced back there without
anyone noticing, heís either very clever or very lucky.
Did he have time to do it? To find out, 48 Hours drove
the exact same route prosecutors believe Camm took that
It took all of 15 minutes, investigators say, for Camm
to commit the crime. It took Schlesinger eight minutes
to make the round trip which means, if you believe the
prosecutionís theory, Camm had roughly seven minutes to
kill Kim, Brad and Jill.
But to this day, investigators are still not sure what
happened inside the garage that night. There are all
sorts of strange things about the crime scene. For one,
it seemed much too clean. And on top of the Ford Bronco,
Kim's shoes had been neatly positioned.
So was the murderer tidy? A little compulsive? And there
was more: an unidentified palm print on the Bronco door
and a grey sweatshirt tucked neatly next to Bradís body.
|Camm has always
insisted that he could never have killed his
wife and kids, and that he was a happy family
man from the moment he met Kim. It all started
out beautifully in 1989, when Kim married David.
It wasnít long before Bradley was born.
But Kim and David
were headed for trouble. When Kim was pregnant
with Jill, he had an affair. "Itís sheer
stupidity on my part, I allowed myself to get
caught into something that you know, that never
should have happened. And you know I take full
responsibility for that," Camm admits.
The couple eventually
reconciled and a few years later, just months before the
murders, things seemed to get even better. Camm quit his
job with the police and began work at the family
business. The new job gave Camm what he said he wanted
most: more time with his family and more money.
But as this case unfolded, police said they started
learning about more dark secrets. It looked like Camm
had been leading a double life. As one woman put it,
Camm was "very flirty with the women," and Camm
acknowledges "there had been a few incidents over the
One woman, who asked not to be named, met David Camm in
the early 1990s. She says their relationship lasted for
about six months, and ended abruptly when she learned
Camm was married.
But Camm, she says, was persistent and there was one
phone call sheíll never forget. "It was more or less
screaming at me. You know, 'Who told you!'" she recalls.
Prosecutor Stan Faith believes Cammís adultery was a
motive for murder. "If you are wanting to lead a
lifestyle that he seemed to want to lead, you may want
to get rid of your spouse. This happens all the time,"
In Jan. 2002, a little more than a year after the
murders, Cammís trial began. Prosecutors planned to
present dozens of witnesses, including a parade of women
saying Camm propositioned them for sex
In addition to the women, there was a pile of forensic
evidence including that grey sweatshirt, which he
insists was left there by the real killer.
On that point, prosecutors had to admit that Camm was
right: the DNA on the sweatshirt was not his. And they
didn't know whose palm print it was on the Bronco,
either. But they still had plenty of plenty of powerful
evidence to throw at Camm, including an explosive
autopsy report that would turn the trial on its head.
Dr. Tracy Corey performed the autopsy on five-year-old
Jill Camm. "When we began to remove her clothes, we
immediately noticed blood," she remembers.
It was where they found blood that alarmed Dr. Corey and
her colleagues. "Personally I think that Jill Camm was
the victim of sexual abuse. What I can say as far as
professionally, when asked what my professional opinion
is, I can say that she has blunt trauma, that that blunt
trauma is consistent with sexual abuse, but it might be
consistent with something else. Itís just, I havenít
been presented with a scenario that explains that to
me," she says.
Dr. Corey's discovery stunned and sickened Kimís family.
If Jill had been molested then who did it? Prosecutors
thought they knew: David Camm.
But Camm denies molesting his daughter and says he
didn't know anything about a sexual assault.
The most important question for Cammís defense was: when
was Jill molested? Dr. Corey believes it was within
hours of her death, between 12 and 24 hours.
By all accounts, Camm didnít see Jill after 7 a.m. on
the day she died. So if she was molested within 12 hours
of her death, Camm didnít have access to her and
couldnít have done it. But, if it was within 24 hours,
thatís another story.
It is very tough to prove Camm molested his daughter and
he has never been charged with it.
|While Kim and
Jill had been shot in the head, Brad had been
shot in the chest and Dr. Corey says the little
boy bled to death internally. Before he died,
Corey says Brad would have been able to hear,
see and speak. And she believes the pattern of
his injuries shows Bradley was likely
face-to-face with his killer.
On Camm's T-shirt, investigators found eight
tiny blood drops discovered, which prosecutors
claim got there when he pulled the trigger.
Investigators hoped blood
stain expert Rod Englert could connect the dots. Using
stage blood and a piece of paper, Englert shot a blank
at the blood, demonstrating how it would splatter.
"You cannot create that pattern. This is very indicative
of high velocity mist," explains Englert, who was hired
by the prosecution.
Englert examined Cammís shirt and identified the stains
as whatís called "high velocity impact spatter," caused
by a bullet hitting a body. But thatís just one theory.
The defense says those drops of blood actually back up
Camm's version of what he did when he discovered the
"I grabbed Brad, picked him up," Camm explains. "I was
gonna try to do CPR on him."
Bart Epstein, a blood stain expert for more than 30
years, was hired by the defense and believes those eight
droplets on Davidís shirt got there when he leaned over
to remove his son's body from the SUV.
Epstein says those tiny drops of blood were made when
CammĎs shirt brushed against the tips of Jillís bloody
hair. Using a wig and some stage blood, Epstein
demonstrated how these blood stains could have gotten on
He believes these stains can look like high velocity
impact spatter to some people. But in this case, the
number of blood stains could be as important as their
"Gunshot will produce hundreds of stains coming back.
Iíve never seen, I believe the other experts for both
the prosecution and the defense have indicated that
theyíve never seen just seven small or eight small
stains from a gunshot. Iíve never seen that," says
Cammís lawyers believe if he had pulled the trigger at
point blank range, his clothes would have been covered
After roughly two months of arguments and testimony, the
jury finally got the case. On a Sunday night, three days
after they began deliberating, jurors reached a verdict:
Jurors believed Camm molested his daughter and murdered
his family at least partly to cover that up. They
believed the forensic evidence more than the 11 men at
the gym, who said they were with Camm the night of the
He was sentenced to 195 years in prison.
Kim's father Frank Renn says he felt relieved by the
verdict, but not better. "I think he did it. I want him
behind bars. I guess it makes me feel comfortable that
heís behind bars," Kim's mother Janice added.
The Renns thought Camm would be in prison for the rest
of his life, but this story turned out to be far from
over: a new defense attorney was determined to uncover
the truth about some old evidence, including the grey
David Camm has always
insisted he had nothing to do with the murders and
recently spoke exclusively with 48 Hours about being
Camm says he didn't expect to be acquitted and that he
saw it coming; he says he knew early on that his defense
team never had a chance. "We were outmanned," he says,
Nobody expected what came next: the Indiana Court of
Appeals made a bombshell decision, throwing out the
convictions and slamming the judge in the Camm trial for
allowing in evidence of adultery. The court said all
those women could have unfairly persuaded the jury to
turn against Camm. It was a stinging opinion. The court
called the case against Camm "far from overwhelming."
Prosecutor Stan Faith knew the case was controversial
but he never expected such a harsh ruling.
The court also strongly warned prosecutors that if they
tried Camm again, and presented evidence that Jill was
molested, they would have to prove that it was Camm who
Camm soon learned that he would face trial again. Both
he and his new attorney Kitty Liell braced for an uphill
battle, vowing to keep the molestation evidence out of
the new trial.
"In reality, they were never able and still have not
been able to come up with any evidence that the blunt
force trauma suffered by Jill was caused by David Camm,"
Cammís new defense team would face a new prosecutor,
Keith Henderson. His first priority was to take a closer
look at Cammís alibi, those 11 men who say they were
with him at the time of the murders. They looked at the
story each man in the gym that night told.
Prosecutors started to believe Cammís alibi might not be
so strong after all.
"They donít know how many games they played, they donít
know what they were wearing, they donít know just lots
of things, I think thatís where our cross examination
could be built Ė their inability to remember things," a
prosecutor said during a strategy session, which 48
Hours was allowed to attend.
Hendersonís case was starting to take shape, even though
he would not be permitted to present large chunks of
evidence the jury in the first trial heard.
From the beginning Camm always insisted that the grey
sweatshirt, which never was fully investigated, could
answer a lot of questions. "That was one of the primary
elements of our defense was that sweatshirt," Camm
explains. "And the state simply dismissed it."
The sweatshirt held two important clues: there were
blood stains on it that contained DNA; and the word
"Backbone" was written inside the collar.
DNA analyst Lynn Skamerhorn, from the Indiana State
Police lab, tested the sweatshirt before Camm's first
trial. Besides Bradley's blood, Skamerhorn says she was
able to identify other blood stains, most yielding "very
good results as far as DNA was concerned."
In fact, there was a lot of DNA on that sweatshirt. Some
of it matched Brad and his mother, Kim, but the rest of
it belonged to at least two unidentified people, a man
and a woman. None of it matched David Camm.
Amazingly, that mystery DNA was never run through the
federal data bank of known felons before Cammís first
trial. Faith did ask to have the profile run through the
DNA database but that didn't happen. "I think somebody
dropped the ball," he says.
It was a huge error and Kitty Liell believes the mystery
DNA would reveal the truth about what happened on the
night of the murder. She was right: the results would
eventually blow the case wide open.
David Camm hoped, after
five years in prison, that he would finally go free.
With the help of an angry appeals court and his
attorneys, Cammís case was transferred to another
county, where the judge set bond at $20,000.
Sam Lockhart wasted no time and went straight to the
bank to get the money he needed to get his nephew out
and take him home to await his next trial.
The key to finding the killer or killers could be that
mysterious grey sweatshirt.
Prosecutor Keith Henderson pushed to finally get some
answers and ordered the lab to look at everything. What
they found changed just about everything.
Five years after the murders the DNA found on that
sweatshirt was run through a data bank of convicted
felons; almost immediately there was a hit.
The DNA matched to a man named Charles Darnell Boney, a
convicted felon who was recently released from prison.
It turns out Boney has a nickname, "Backbone," the same
name written on the collar of that sweatshirt.
But there was one more mystery. Investigators were
unable to identify the female DNA found on the
sweatshirt. Who was this mystery woman?
David Camm thought this would be the end of his legal
trouble. "We got the killer. Thatís the guy who killed
Kim, Brad and Jill. Thatís the guy," he said
Boney grew up in the same town as Camm. Once police knew
who to look for they found him right away, just across
the Ohio River in Louisville, Ky.
Boney wasnít officially a suspect, yet, but he was a
person of interest to the police and the media. He had
no problem talking Ė in fact, it was hard to shut him
"I will be on every station. I donít have anything to
hide. I stand true to my word," he said during an
Just four months before the murders, Boney had been
released from prison, where he had served time for armed
Boney never tried to deny his nickname, Backbone. He was
proud of it. "As you know my nicknameís Backbone, all it
means is Iím not spineless," he said during a TV
Boney denied any involvement in the murders and seemed
especially eager to help defense investigators, who were
videotaping their interviews. He appeared relaxed, and
at times even chatty.
It quickly became obvious that Boney had what could only
be described as an odd fascination if not an obsession:
he really liked shoes and feet. His interests had gotten
him into trouble with the law.
In the late 1980ís, when he was a student at Indiana
University in Bloomington, Boney was known to
authorities by another name, "The Shoe Bandit." It's a
fact he doesn't deny. "I mean. Iím guilty. I did it," he
told police during an interview.
Boneyís dramatic entrance into the Camm case seemed to
answer a lot of questions about the crime scene,
especially the bizarre placement of Kimís shoes on top
of the Bronco.
But Boney denied being the killer. "I would rather kill
myself than kill kids," he told investigators.
Cammís defense attorney Kitty Liell immediately checked
into Boneyís background. "Well I learned he has a
history of violent crimes against women," Liell says.
"Like tackling women and punching them in the face and
stealing one shoe."
Donna Ennis knows first hand Boney is a dangerous man.
In Oct. 1992, she and her college roommates were robbed
at gunpoint by him.
She says his demeanor quickly changed from calm to angry
and agitated. "He told us if we did anything he was
going to kill us. If we tried to run, if we tried to
scream he was going to kill us," Ennis remembers.
Luckily, a neighbor saw the commotion and called the
police; Boney was arrested.
Five years after David Cammís family had been murdered,
the pieces of the puzzle were beginning to fall into
place. And Boney was a man with a lot of explaining to
do, starting with that sweatshirt.
Boney claims he got rid it shortly after he was released
from prison, saying he threw it into a Salvation Army
He was quick to point out his DNA wasnít the only DNA on
the sweatshirt, saying that, "Thereís also unidentified
female. Everyone knows that. Everyone thatís followed
He insists he doesnít know how his sweatshirt got to the
crime scene and he insists he didnít even know David
Camm. Boney wasnít doing himself any favors by
continuing to talk, especially when the subject turned
"My fingerprints would not appear at that crime scene,
because first and foremost, once again, I would have to
have been there in for my finger prints to appear at the
crime scene," he told police.
But Henderson says the palm print on the outside of the
Bronco matched Boney's fingerprints.
The more Boney talked, the more he implicated himself.
"If something of mine was there at the scene, that means
that I would have been there," he told police.
And police could not have agreed more. His sweatshirt,
his DNA and his palm print at the scene of the murders
made their case. Boney was arrested and charged with
murdering Kim, Brad and Jill.
Shortly after Boneyís arrest Camm and his father Don
could hardly believe what happened next: the murder
charges against David had been dropped. Davidís father
had never seen his son so happy. "Oh gracious, he was
nervous, he was shakiní, he was beside himself," he
But the euphoria didn't last. For the first time in
years there were no charges against David Camm. That
changed about 60 minutes later.
Armed with warrants, officers arrested Camm, telling him
he was being re-charged and would face an additional
charge of conspiracy.
After a tiny taste of freedom, Camm was whisked back to
jail. Keith Henderson had a new theory: Camm and Boney
were partners and he couldnít let Camm remain free,
fearing he might flee.
Henderson said Boney made this an entirely new case, so
now Camm and Boney would face not just murder charges
but also the new conspiracy charge.
"After discovering Charles Boney my belief now is that
that this was planned well in advance," Henderson says.
But David Camm says he never met or knew Boney, even
though they both grew up in the small town of New
Prosecutors suspected Boney stayed behind to clean up
after the murders so that Camm could race back to the
Boney couldnít very well deny being at the murder scene
anymore, with the sweatshirt, his DNA and the palm print
putting him there. So he started cooperating up to a
point; he always denied firing any shots that night.
Just days after Boney was arrested, he told police an
almost entirely different story. He now said he knew
Camm. He said he had met him at a basketball game and
that he had told Camm he was an ex-con who dealt in
drugs and guns. Once again, Boney was talking and
investigators tape recorded every word.
Boney told prosecutors that Camm approached him with a
special request. "He asked me specifically 'Do you still
deal with getting firearms,'" Boney told police.
Henderson says Boney claimed Camm had approached him to
obtain a clean, untraceable gun for $250.
Boneyís attorney Patrick
Renn, who is no relation to Kimís family, argues his
client had no idea why Camm wanted the gun. "Charles
Boney sold a weapon to David Camm. He did it for
financial gain. Period. He never asked David Camm what
he was gonna do with the weapon," he says.
And while Renn says Boney was at the murder scene, he
says his client is a witness, and not a co-conspirator.
"He hears an altercation," Renn says. "And then he hears
the female voice say, 'No' and then thereís a shot and
then he hears a young male voice saying 'Daddy' and then
thereís a second shot."
And, according to Renn, Camm turned the gun on Boney and
tried to kill him. But the way Boney tells it, the gun
jammed, and he pursued Camm back into the garage.
"After tripping over the shoes, he picked up the shoes,
placed those shoes on top of the Bronco and then looked
inside the vehicle. Saw the children. Saw they had been
killed and then he left," Renn says.
Camm insists Boneyís story is fiction. "He just makes
this stuff up on the fly, trying to put things together,
what he knows and what he doesnít know to make it fit to
give them what they want," he says.
The murder investigation would lead authorities from
rural Indiana to the Carribean island of Trinidad and a
young lady named Mala Singh Mattingly.
She was Boney's girlfriend at the time of the killings.
Their "romance" was short, so Mala was surprised when
the police came looking for her five years later, trying
to match that unknown female DNA on Boneyís sweatshirt.
It turned out Boney still remembered her. "She would be
the perfect, second perfect alibi," he told police.
Boney may have believed Mala would help his case, but he
was very wrong. She tells Schlesinger she saw Boney
leave on the night of the murder. "He told me he was
going to help a buddy," she says.
Investigators say that buddy was David Camm.
At the time, Mala didnít think much of it. But a few
hours later, Boney came home and woke her. Asked to
describe what he was like on his return, Mala says,
"Excited trying to catch his breath and panting Ö I see
the scrape on his knee."
She was still sleepy, but she says Boney insisted on
showing her a gun. Detectives arenít sure if Mala saw
the murder weapon, which they have never found, but she
is the only witness who will say she saw Boney night of
Boney and Camm would be tried for the same crime at the
same time but on different sides of the state: Boney in
New Albany, Camm 100 miles away in Boonville.
As the trial began, Boneyís attorney faced every defense
attorneyís worst nightmare Ė a smorgasboard of forensic
evidence, not to mention his clientís own words taped
Prosecutor Henderson laid out a devastating case: Mala
Singh Mattinglyís testimony about seeing Boney with a
gun on the night of the murder, Boneyís DNA and palm
print at the crime scene, topped off with his own words,
including some he thought he could take back.
After agreeing to write a statement for the police,
Boney apparently had second thoughts about a few lines
and crossed them out.
Unfortunately for Boney, the prosecution had a powerful
weapon: forensic document examiner Diane Tolliver. She
has been uncovering hidden messages for 30 years.
Tolliver had low expectations for deciphering the
crossed out words but using a high tech gizmo, called
the Video Spectral Comparator 2000, she was able to
reveal the message.
ďThe original text was 'David Camm asked me to follow
him to a secluded area. He wanted to talk to me about
something that could help me financially he said,'"
It was very strong evidence, even though David Camm says
itís all a lie. "He was writing on the fly. He was
making it up as he went along," he insists.
But Boneyís attorney believes the statement helps prove
Boneyís claim that all he did was sell David Camm a gun.
Itís was a tough defense to sell to a jury. After three
days of deliberations, jurors found Charles Boney guilty
on all counts.
Jurors quickly decided that Boney was guilty of Kimís
murder; that decision took less than an hour. But the
jury still had to decide about Brad and Jillís murders.
Did Boney know the kids would also be killed that night?
Thatís what troubled Kristy Litch, who was the last hold
"I don't know if it was the fact that I knew we was
gonna have to find a man guilty of murder. Or if it was
the fact I didn't want to convict 'em of the kids
murders when I didn't have enough proof that he knew
that they were gonna be murdered," she explains.
Cammís uncle Sam Lockhart saw the Boney verdict as a
victory for David. "Weíre ecstatic that they finally got
the killer. Our next deal is get Dave Camm free," he
And Kimís family worried that there was not nearly as
much evidence against Camm as there was against Boney.
"David Camm murdered these three people and heís the one
we got to get," her father said,
With Boney behind bars, all eyes focused on Cammís
re-trial. Cammís legal team believed when jurors would
hear about Boneyís violent past they would be convinced
that Boney killed Kim, Brad, and Jill, not David Camm.
But the jury would hear very little about Boney Ė the
judge ruled jurors could only be told that his DNA and
palm print were found at the scene. But they would not
hear about his recent conviction in this case, his
previous crimes against women, or his foot fetish.
It was huge a blow to the defense and left Camm
Still, Camm had the appeals court decision working for
him. The ruling said all those women who testified about
his adultery in the first trial would not be allowed in
But the appeals court left the heart of prosecutionís
case untouched: the eight tiny blood stains on Cammís
T-shirt, which prosecutors insist got there when Camm
shot his family.
Asked why the blood stains don't implicate David Camm,
Stacy Uliana, a member of the defense team says, "They
fit perfectly with what Dave has said from the very
beginning. He reached over his daughter when he pulled
his son out of the car."
For weeks, Camm had had to sit through all the evidence
a second time. He watched the blood experts tangle again
and watched the gruesome crime scene photos, again.
It got more difficult. The judge decided prosecutors
would be allowed to present some evidence that Davidís
daughter Jill was molested, even though the appeals
court set limits.
At the first trial, experts said Jillís injuries told
them she was molested within 12 to 24 hours of her
death. But at this trial, a new prosecution witness
widened that window of opportunity in which David could
have abused his daughter.
"The jury has learned that Jill Camm was sexually
abused, two days prior to her murder," Henderson said.
But with almost every setback in this trial, Camm got
some good news. After the prosecution rested, the judge
ruled there was too little proof of a connection between
Camm and Boney. There was no evidence of phone calls or
meetings, hardly any evidence the men had a plan. The
conspiracy charge was dismissed.
Cammís defense team hammered away at every prosecution
witness, trying to raise as much doubt as possible.
A big part of the defense's case rested on the testimony
of the basketball players, including Camm's uncle, who
say they saw David on the night of the murders.
But prosecutor Keith Henderson thought he could punch a
big hole in Cammís supposedly air-tight alibi. One of
the basketball players who swore at the first trial that
he saw Camm in the church gym for the entire evening,
now said he wasn't sure.
How damaging is the testimony? Itís hard to say because
10 other men still insist David was at the gym all the
"Whatís relevant here is was Dave Camm in that gym or
not. The evidence shows that Dave Camm was in that gym
that night when Charles Boney was murdering his family.
And thatís what counts," says Kitty Liell.

on Sept. 29, 2000. (CBS/48 Hours)
During closing arguments, Henderson argued Camm not only
had the opportunity to kill his family, he had a motive.
"Well the motive was Kimberly was leaving David Camm and
she was leaving him because of the child molesting," he
"What they want to do is throw anything they can up
against the wall," Liell argues. "It's character
assassination. If they had any evidence of it they would
have charged him."
But Camm's lawyers pointed the finger at Boney, whose
DNA and palm print were at the crime scene; they said
police botched the investigation and from the outset
were determined to get Camm, despite his alibi.
Jurors got the case. On the fourth day of deliberations,
the jury found David Camm guilty of murder, again
Camm says he was "dumbfounded" and "shocked" by the
Jurors meticulously went through all the evidence and
decided the defense didnít add up, for the same reasons
as the jury in the first trial. They believed those
blood stains proved Camm was the killer.
Camm was sentenced to life without parole.
"Another thing that makes it more difficult is the fact
that I did have that taste of being back with you know
my brothers, sisters, cousins nieces nephews and being
back with my family," Camm says of his brief taste of
freedom. "And the bottom line is, one of the things that
makes it the most difficult is the fact that Iím doing
Charles Boneyís time."
But Camm has had two chances to prove his innocence and
has never been able to persuade a single juror that heís
not a murderer.
"People have formulated an opinion, and they either
believe in me or they don't. The people that believe in
me are the same people that have always believed in me,
and they require no convincing," he says. "There's one
group of individuals that I'm concerned with right now,
and that is the Indiana Supreme Court."
Cammís lawyers are asking for a third trial but even he
knows thatís a long shot.
For the Renn family the latest victory provides little
comfort. Theyíve always known who killed Kim, Brad, and
Jill. Theyíve never been sure why and even after six
years and three trials, they still donít. They still
have trouble understanding what happened in the garage
that bloody night.
"You always wonder, you want the whole puzzle put
together," says Kim's father Frank Renn. "Thereís a part
missing and Iím not sure weíll ever know the whole
