UntitledEdit

Moved this content out of Palmyra Atoll, as it had gotten too big for its section and really deserved to be an article of its own. Did a huge amount of cleanup, mostly to improve wikification and remove faulty grammar or florid, non-NPOV prose. The only factual changes made were to add the author names and remove a future-tense reference to a hearing in 2006.

Also forgot to log in. The changes attributed to "192.168.0.96" are my work.

Odd conflict of interestEdit

I note that the female suspect's trial lawyer was in fact a coauthor of this book. Does anybody know anything about this rather strange circumstance? Especially, can anyone who's actually read the book comment on whether she is treated as an innocent in the text?

Nothing strange about it, actually. As for how "Jennifer" is treated in the book, Bugliosi is realistic. You get the impression that he doubted her innocence at times. --WoohookittyWoohoo! 08:02, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Jurisdiction?Edit

Out of curiosity, was there every any question or special accommodation necessary to hold a trial over a crime committed in a territory without organized government? Were they simply tried in Federal court on murder charges? --Jfruh (talk) 04:33, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Yes, crimes which occur in the US but not any specific state or local jurisdiction simply default to the Federal courts. This is a special case now, but has been laid out for a very long time, since the US had quite a bit of unincorporated territory in its early history. --Nentuaby 02:49, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

Buck Walker article?Edit

This is such an extraordinary, notorious crime that I reckon Buck Walker deserves an entry on his own. There is a fair bit of information available, as well as some good photos (see especially http://starbulletin.com/2007/07/13/news/story04.html). What do others think?
