I learned more about your credentials, and offer my apology for any rremarks that were thrown in your personal direction. If you were angered, then good. You know how I felt when I wrote that.
Since all of the men that perpetrated this atrocity are now dead, by any normal statistics, and that cold cases 4 years old, even now find unsatisfactory resolution, it is no stretch to understand that such a crime would fade in post-bellum Texas.
Fortunately, Texas Courts, not even U.S. Federal Courts bear the highest and final authority.
"The bleeding ghosts to the Lord of Hosts, rise to judgement final and solemn.
The fanatic horde to the edge of the sword (of truth) is doomed...
Line, square, and column." - a quoted last bar of Song of the Rebel Irish from Gods and Generals, deleted scene.
Not much remains, but to square my affairs with God, go to my sleep, and await the courts of final reckoning where all truth is spoken, and none escape final justice, the Grace of God notwithstanding.
