How could such a simple case with so many players go on for so long and an innocent man does what 20 years in prison for a crime he doesnt commit?

Its called "cover up" and its too bad some of the details i learned tonight were kept away from the public for so long.

What i did confirm tonight is the posers JG and the dead RM along w/their punk friends are the turds who "DID IT".

Its almost time to pay the piper boys, your god is waiting in hell for all of you & its not gonna be fun when you get there.

The OD said Richard Miller that died lat week was one of the people of interest.

One of the other posts said that one of the five has a close relative in law enforcement.

Other posts have id'ed olive boy as Mike Mandia. Search on Mandia for more informnation

I don't know that any of this is true but a good friend of mine was close to Mrs. Simon and I would like to see this solved and the guilty punished. I fear that they may have killed again in the intervening years since they are no better than animals. If this rings any bells, I hope you can help. It seems from reading topix that this was the worst kept secret for 25 years and yet the guilty went unpunished and an young innocent man gave up the best years of his life for nothing. There is plenty of shame to go around.

I got a Feeling the majority of you were not even born when this happened, I was 18. I was in the county at the time it took place. I know Steven, they Framed him from the get go. back in the 80's it was all about a conviction rate for the county DA. they did not care if you were innocent/guilty/mentally challenged, they wanted you they got you, in Steve's case, thank the Heavens new technology came along that proved him innocent ( as well as others being freed for wrong convictions). I've got the feeling the people that have died that knew of this case did not die of natural causes... I feel they were killed to keep their mouths shut....I moved from the Utica area many years ago to escape that god forbidden city and the surrounding areas. As in my opinion once oneida co courts gets its indian hook into you... you are doomed until your final days. I go back to the days when the Italians ran that city and believe me I wont mention names to this date, but you old timers that get on this site know who im talking about (Rufas). But I do hope they find these scum bags and bring peace to this girls family as well as to Steve, he needs this shit lifted from his shoulders as well... Peace to all, and unless you know something specif about the case dont ramble names on as thats how innocent people get jammed up and falsly charged with crimes they did not commit....Steven barns is a perfect example... he lost 20 yrs..... think of it... would you like to lose 20 yrs of your life behind a grey 20 foot wall contained in a house that mostly consist of grey bars, I DONT THINK SO...
It's always been about the conviction rate around here, they (DA's office) don't care if innocent people go to jail, they want convictions. They never divulge evidence which could clear the accused, they (cops) lie on the stand and coerce "witnesses" to lie too. If they have a grudge against you in Utica, if you go against the powers that be in Utica, you very likely could end up in jail falsely accused, convicted and incarcerated. In recent years, the DA's office was exposed and what did you do..you elected the perp to Congress...and put his friend in who is of the same cloth. There is no justice in this world, so don't look for it, but there will be in the next.

On AMW last night, they just about said that the cop who testified lied on the stand. Again, who was this cop? Who was he related to (because that's how it works around here)? Was he related to one of the real killers. Who squashed the investigation? How far did the conspiracy go up? These are serious questions that in my mind need to be answered. It's unbelievable that even these local police could have botched the investigation so badly, it HAD to be a conspiracy to protect one of their own kids.

There is some additional video on the AMW website, which I don't think was part of Saturday's episode.

The off-duty Utica Police officer who testified about seeing Barnes and his truck on Mohawk Street was Philip Arcuri.

I watched the show last night, and that aroused my curiousity as well.

If it were a conspiracy though, I believe that it was between the cop and someone who was there that night - and not necessarily the murderer. The others in the precinct (court and community) may have just gone along with what the cop said he witnessed since they respected him and/or had no reason to doubt him at the time. He could have also been paid to say what he said - giving more credence to the "mob" theory that another poster mentioned.

So while I agree there was a conspiracy - I don't believe that it was as large a conspiracy as you believe it to be.

Also - the prison "informant" - it was revealed that he may have(?) been there that night and therefore deliberately lied to help seal the awful fate of Barnes. What was he in jail for?... and for how long? If he were serving a long prison sentence (and not the murderer)- it would have been in his best interest to "bargain" with the investigators for what he knows in exchange for a lesser charge and to shorten his then sentence. In other words, was he indeed covering his own tracks by falsely fingering someone else OR was he in fact PAID to say what he did?
