Full story: Carlsbad Current-Argus

uh, well--'if' he is innocent, he should sue. Thirty years is a big slice out of one's life. There are a lot of innocent people in prison who were wrongly convicted. I'm not saying he's one of them.

Nancy is dead and will remain dead.

She died because of the foolish, heartless, evil actions of-
Carl Case a.k.a. Scratch
Curtis Worley
Mike Tweedy
Paul Dunlap

Whether she was raped or not, doesn't matter.
There should be NO forgiveness or leniency.

I STILL REMEMBER THAT ALSO AND COVERED THE TRIAL, IF IM NOT MISTAKEN THEY PUT CASE ON THE STAND AT ONE TIME TO TESTIFY AGAINST ANOTHER ONE OF THE RAPIST AND KILLERS AND HE REFUSED AND EVERY TIME THE D.A. ASKED HIM A QUESTION HE REFUSED TO ANSWER AND HARVEY FORT WAS ADDING A YEAR MORE FOR EACH QUESTION, AND I THINK HE HAD LIKE 9 YRS ADDED TO HIS REGULAR SENTENCE, WHICH WAS LATER OVER TURNED BECAUSE OF HIS 5TH AMENDMENT RIGHT, WHICH MEANS A PERSON CANNOT INCRIMINATE HIMSELF, BUT ALL IN ALL, I HOPE THIS DONT TURN LIKE THE TERRY SEATON CASE, WHO WAS [ SUPPOSEDLY] CONVICTED OF KILLING MR DAVIS, IN THE SPRING OF 1971, MR DAVIS WAS THE BAKER WHO OPERATED HIS BAKERY BY WHERE IT IS NOW CLOSE TO THE ODDITY SHOP ON TEXAS ST,THEY POURED HOT GREASE ON HIM AND CASTORATED HIM ALSO, SEATON ALSO SUED THE STATE AND GOT MUCHO DINERO, LATER THERE WAS RUMORS THAT IT WAS THE WILLIAMS BROTHERS A PAIR OF MAYATES THAT DID IT, BUT NEVER CONVICTED,BUT IF THIS FELLOW SUES FOR 30 YRS, HE CAN HAVE A VERY GOOD TIME IN HAWAII AND ALSO TAKE BUBBA WITH HIM AS A GUEST FOR A VERY LONG TIME/.

Nancy died because those guys ( headed up by Scratch Case) hit her in the head with a pipe and the left her in the middle of winter half dressed to die which she did and it is their fault and again I say Scratch was in control of all of it. Is he guilty of rape? I think so, is he guilty of murder? Absolutely. should he get out? Only if he can bring her back. We know what the answer to that is......This is all very sickening to me.

I knew I remembered your name!
You were Westly Wards sister right?
I was going to Bethel when Nancy was going there as well.
After 30 years I still remember her smile.

You go Lisa! you know like me what happened back 30 yrs ago! We knew case before he did what he did to Nancy and he was rotten! Case Is just a Rat trying to get out of his cage! I feel for the family of Nancy having to go through all the trauma of what happened to their sweet baby girl That night!

Why did the two witnesses change their story? Det McCanles married one of them. Why, if they saw what happened didn't they go and get help. They saw and kept their mouths shut until they were needed. These two witnesses knew she was out there and could have saved here, but didi nothing

His name is Joe Brown, he is the only one I didn't know prior to the rape and murder. Why the witnesses changed their story? I don't know, but do I think they truly were witnesses? Yeh I do. How could they keep their mouths shut? I've always wondered that myself, honestly, I think Bobby Autrey decided he couldn't .
