The prime suspect was tried and aquitted, if there is not enough new evidence to go back to trial with another defendant, then why re-open the case. There are several more recent murders that nobody has ever been brought to trial for. Why not try and solve them. If some new evidence turns up that points to some other suspect and the prosecutors think they can build a case, then by all means open it back up...
The only reason he was acquited was because his very wealthy Mississippi relatives said he was with them on thier boat and could not have done it.I talked to LeeAnn a week before and he was suppose to come down and sign some papers she had for him.HE SAID he never came down huh.He was a real Jerk.Who ever killed her knew thier way around the house and knew her dogs,those dogs would have tore them up if it had of been a stranger.

Excuse me...The special investigators done their job. The evidence was there. The DA blew the case. The lab also blew it.
People on here are picking up on remarks that have been rumors for years.
Had you followed the case it would have been obivious as to what went on!!
No rumors buddy I was around when it happened and I knew all parties involved and was the DOC capable of such a crime YES! YES! YES! He had ego and greed was his worst enemy and LeeAnn was fixing to crush that.

if this is the case, you want it re opened, why dont' you call the attorney general? Having such on this site won't do much good.

It's been a long time, but didn't a jury find him not guilty? The defense has all the advantages, particularly in an highly publicized emotional trial, they can really 'dumb-down' a jury, as was the case in Tennessee a couple of years ago, where the preacher's wife shotgunned her hubby in the back while he slept. She walked. But don't hold this as completely true, but somehow the defense[the Garrison case] kept key evidence from jury scrutiny that may have pointed directly at the defendant. The defense outclassed the prosecution, same as the O.J. trial. Remember folks, "beyond the shadow of a doubt". The defense attorneys did a hell of a job!

If you're talking about "The Sin", that book isn't 100% factual. It's a novel that is "based on a true story" but some of the elements have been changed. It's not a true account of the case.
I remember someone saying that the place of the murder, among some other things, was changed.

Well if her husband did it and is still walking around free then he needs to be tried for a lesser charge and punished.If he took the life of his wife and deprived her children of their mother and her love then he should have to pay. It's been long enough and justice is way over due. This woman deserves it.This is just not right.

I think the new wife(the one he has now) did it.
My own opinion.
His "new" wife has been his wife for over 30 years. No way did she have anything to do with it. You are really reaching, or have an ax to grind.
As someone else said, Dr. Garrison was acquitted and cannot be re-tried for the same crime. There was evidence at the time pointing to a person or persons other than the person ultimately accused, so if the police want to re-open the case as a "cold case," more power to them. It's not your call.

Are you sure about that? The "new" wife got him to leave town with her and HER kids. Remember when it all blew up...and they left town....She took her kids with them. He left his. So he left his wife and kids for her. He left his medical practice and patients for her. On this end, I am not so sure what else she may have gotten him to do. A good manipultors hands are rarely dirty....they get someone else to do the work for them. Just a thought.

Being new to Kennett, I am now aware of how near I am to this house. And that bothers me. That anyone would possibly stand in the way of reopening this case. With modern forensic science being what it is, If Dr. Garrison is innocent, it would be brought to light; And along with possibly finding out who really did murder this woman, shouldn't something that could be done. To finally let this silent victim have her day in court???

I know not of one iota of physical evidence that indicated that Dr. Wilson was involved in this crime. Where as, Dr. Garrison's right index fingerprint was found in Lee Ann's blood on the back fence.
As far as Dr. Wilson having a hunting accident...please...him going hunting....we was to busy hang gliding, rock climbing, and skydiving to have gone hunting...NOT!

If Lee Ann had voluntarily let someone in the house, that does not explain why the phone system was disabled in such a way as to disallow her to telephone out for help.
As I recall, there was purportedly evidence indicating as many as 3 or more perpetrators in the house that night.
Regardless, it seems that there is sufficient speculation, reason, or what-ever to warrant DNA testing. It is a shame that this has gone on for 34 years without a conclusive answer.
