Could they be in the sunken Iola?share
Vincent Bugliosi was not the prosecuter at either trial. He in fact was Stephanie Stearn's defense lawyer. Surely this is a mistake on your part? A typo I hope?
In addition, you make it sound like they were tried together 'Buck Walker and Stephanie Stearn's trial', instead of "Buck Walker's and then Stephanie Stearn's trial".
He never prosecuted either of them.
update: i read this post before the other one. i'm surprised you'd not edit out the errors!!!
Teal'c: Things will not calm down, Daniel Jackson. They will in fact calm up.
i would imagine he dumped them both in the lagoon and mac drifted out to sea over time, while muff washed ashore.share
The victim's boat was returned to Hawaii by the killers and seized by police. No bodies were found.share
I wasn't talking about the Sea Wind I was talking about Buck's boat that he sank outside the island.share
I recently saw some other unrelated tv show that got me thinking about this case again, so I thought I would check out this message board. I will be re-reading the book soon to refresh myself with the events, and will stop back.
I was thinking the same thing about Mac's body being on the Iola when it was scuttled by Buck and Stephanie. Too many assumptions have been made that Mac's body received the same fate as Muff's simply based on the other missing container. If Buck had wanted to make a personal statement to himself about "exchanging" boats, he may have left Mac's body on board the Iola when he and Stephanie scuttled it.
Why were Muff's, and probably Mac's, bodies dumped in the lagoon instead of out at sea? Arguments can be made that do include Stephanie having knowledge of the murders. The one that came to mind when I first read the book was, that for a remote island, Palmyra had turned into Grand Central Station. Buck and Stephanie could never know when another boat would show up. For all we know, one may have came by with people on it who never later became aware of murders, or never actually stopped at the island. In other words, Buck and Stephanie needed to dispose of the bodies as soon as possible.
I have also never been convinced that just dumping the bodies in the "shark-infested" lagoon was a sure fire way quickly dispose of them. That could easily take many days, and the bodies could keep washing up on shore.
Think about it. You have just killed two people and you need to dispose of the bodies NOW. You never know when another boat may show up.
Walker's website is still alive, even though he has been dead for two years. The excerpts of his book seem to reveal that he showed no remorse, or was ever going to tell the truth about the events on Palmyra, even if he could recall what really happened.
