I recall from the original articles regarding this murder that Mr. Baldwin's father could not believe his son could commit such an act. Obviously, his father didn't believe he was psychiatrically impaired and neither did the jury. How could an individual with an impaired mind have the capacity to dispose of the body in the manner he did? The irony of this story is that the aunt of the victim (a friend of mine) has spent the last 25 years of her life taking care of mentally ill individuals. She, like I have tried to understand the workings of the human brain. She really deserves a much better history of this individual's life. What was his past like? Did his teachers see him as different or odd? What was his lawyer basing insanity on? How many of the staff on the psychiatric unit where he was housed believed he really displayed signs of mental illness? There has been no adequate description to suggest he was mentally ill at the time of this crime. If you know otherwise I believe my friend deserves this information, because, without it she has to live with the knowledge that her nephew was killed by a cold blooded calculating individual. None of us want to believe people like Baldwin exist, especially those of us who have devoted our lives to caring for those with real mental illness.

I learned today that Baldwin will be sentenced on Brendan's (the victim)birthday, which leads me to believe that you can destroy a man's body but not his soul. I don't believe in coincidence.
