It makes me sick how corrupt the detectives are! They made up their minds even if dna cleared him they would still insist he is guilty! The whole case should have been thrown out then to have a police officers of one of "the girls" break in a destroy evidence how convenient he should have been prosecuted!! The whole thing is an outrage!!

I'm not saying I agree with whether he is innocent or not, but I absolutely believe that the females who are still to this day talked about need to be further investigated. Commonly mentioned in those names is Maude, the daughter of the police officer that broke into the evidence locker the next day. I'm just curious if anyone ever decided to check his hand with the bloody palm print found on the vehicle. Wouldn't it be rational to think if a young girl and her friends accidentally killed a girl while simply trying to assault her they would be extremely scared and not know what to do? Who would be better to contact than your father a police officer who would likely want to help his daughter from going to jail? He obviously wanted to get something out of that evidence room to literally break in to it right? Just a theory...

If the Amanda Knox trial took place in Montana, she would still be in prison. Good going Italy.
I agree. This is exactly what happened to Amanda Knox in Italy. It appears the Justice System in Italy has more sense and courage to admitt they where wrong than they do in Montana.

I saw dateline last night and don't think Barry beach killed Kim. Even if he did, killing someone at 17, should he be in prison 30 years????? This is a very interesting case the people on the panel looked half witted!!!

.....also, you cant pick and choose portions of a confession that suit your wishes, when they knew Beach's admissions about the Louisiana killings were false that meant his confession was tainted, coerced, worthless. Still they carried forward, this case shouldn't have even made it to the courtroom, let alone into a 100 year sentence without parole, someone just wanted this whole thing to go away.

Something made me wonder when i watched dateline during the interview of Kieth to that Sissy... Kieth told her about what her brother had Said and she said..."I did not tell him about that"... This statement to me seemed odd.It seems that she was putting herself in the crume scene.I do believe that mr beach had nothing ti Do with this.Im à crime investigator myself and if the evidence at the show just dont point the finger to mr beach.If montana's system of law is corrupt ,how many more innocent people are in prison right now in that state?Remember, what you planted here on earth,you Will harvest it before the Lord when your day comes

I agree. I think, while she was "high" she talked and now can't remember when she did. I also think there is a coverup in the police department to keep him locked up. I have seen this happen first hand, how police and politics can cover up and lose evidence.

I agree with you RoundRock, Texans must think alike....What about the deputy that broke into the evidence room? We didn't hear much about that, and what of his daughter....The fact is that there's just too much reasonable doubt for this man to be convicted of her murder if you look at the law. She deserves justice and one day, if not in this lifetime but the next....justice will be served. whether he's innocent or not, he deserves another trail with a change in venue, up to date forensics, and a more thorough investigation. DId he ever take a polygraph?

Dardo Morbius is actually Marc Racicot and he's terrified he will be found out that he purposely put an innocent kid in prison. Typical politician!

Everyone wants to beleive.Beach can have the retrial and in this new liberal bleedin heart society he'll prolly get released but I think he is where he belongs.Racicot is a good target for ufo guy or tin foil guy.Everyone likes a cospiracy and can come up with excuses and senarios to back the poor fella that did confess to this crime.Racicot on the other hand dealt with the facts.You dont confess to murder because of pressure, slow down dont set a criminal free.

It's been quite awhile since I posted here, but since once again the Barry Beach saga has come up in the form of Executive Clemency that is pending this year, I revisited this site. As far as the folks that cursed me and wrote insults, I expected nothing less. That is all anyone that doesn't have a logical argument has left. Richard Ramirez, infamously known as the Night Stalker, was convicted of murdered 14 people, of 5 attempted murders, 11 rapes, 14 burglaries, and countless aggravated assaults and torture, (43 violent crimes total) perpetrated on men, women, and children ranging from the ages of 9 to 83. Back in 1985 the internet was just beginning and there were no blogs and sites to write commentary on events. However family referred to Richard Ramirez as a good boy. He developed quite a fan club of people proclaiming his innocence and even fighting over his amorous attention. One juror, after voting to convict him, fell in love with him. A lady named Doreen Lioy (41 yrs old) who was an independent editor at large and was present in the courtroom covering the trial and therefore privy to the photos of mutilation and torture that Mr. Ramirez inflicted on his victims, never the less not only feel in love but married Mr. Ramirez in 1996. Evidence and facts matter little to the fanatical idealogues. They believe what they believe. The Loch Ness Monster, Big Foot, Alien Abductions, the shooters on the grassy knoll, there are plenty examples. I am not an attorney. By the sophistication of the postings I would venture to say neither is anybody else. Perhaps lawyers are smart enough not to waste their time posting at sites where their opinions and judgements will not be appreciated. I expressed no definate opinion as to Mr. Beach's guilt or innocence. I made a comment regarding the nature of the man, in an attempt to balance out the seemingly one sided worship of the man. Just for the record I have read all the transcripts. I am aware of the lack of empirical evidence. But I am also aware that no matter what I write here as to parts of Mr. Beach's story you are NOT aware of, it serves no purpose. If I write it down you will call me a liar and if I don't you will say it doesn't exist. Just to keep the record straight this information I refer to has nothing to do with guilt or innocence. It goes to the character of Barry Beach and it doesn't paint him in a positive light.
