The detective seemed to be leading? I don't understand. Did the jury have the notion that murderers walk into the police stations without prompting and confess outright? Ridiculous. Seems to me, interrogations are necessary for a reason. GUILTY PEOPLE LIE!!! Which is what this guy did. Hope the jury can sleep well at night knowing they have allowed a murderer to walk amongst them.
