We interviewed the people closest to the victims. The husband of the female victim, and the best friend of the other victim. The first interviewee was Curley. The husband of Joy Less and the son of the owner of the ranch. He informed us that the person who killed his wife was indeed Lennie Smalls.
Even though Michelle concocted the plan, it was Byrom Jr. who actually committed the murder. Byrom Jr. admitted to committing in several jailhouse letters and, according to court documents, in an interview with a court-appointed psychologist” (cnn.com). In one explicit confession letter to his mother, he detailed how he killed his father in rage after a fight. Because Byrom’s defense attorneys never had the confession letters entered in as evidence, a jury never heard any of Edward Byrom Jr.’s confessions. This meant that without the confessions, Michelle was going to be convicted of the murder.
Winslow force he and him companions to give over all their weapons and Phillip had to sign a document saying he had been disloyal. None of Phillip’s warriors were happy for being falsely accused and giving over their weapons. The Wampanoag people were looking for some sort of retaliation but Phillip wanted to keep the peace. In January of 1675 Phillip’s personal secretary warned Winslow of war and 3 months later he was found dead. Three of Phillip’s men were arrested and tried for the murder.
So it seemed to me that there were conflicting accounts of the way the Clutter family died. Perry claimed that Dick was the one that wanted to kill and rape everyone and that he was the one that executed it. But then Dick tells everyone: his parents, the judge, and the lawyers. It turns out that Dick was right. Still, it seems like they both contradicted each other a lot throughout the entire events recalling what happened at the house.
Rule: To be convicted of larceny or robbery, the defendant must possess felonious intent to take the personal property of another person without believing, in good faith, that the defendant has a right or claim to the property. Holding: Where the defendant had killed victim in perpetration of robbery was necessary for conviction for first-degree murder, denial of defendant's defense of honest belief that money sought from victim belonged to defendant was miscarriage of
Although Henry Lee Lucas murdered many innocent people and partook in many disgusting and inhumane practices, he only confessed to the murder of three people- his mother, Becky Toole, and an elderly woman (Hudson n.p.). “I was brought up like a dog. No human being should have to be put through what I was,” Henry Lee Lucas claimed about his childhood (Philbin 105). In August of 1936 in the poor town of Blacksburg, Virginia, Viola Lucas gave birth to Henry Lee Lucas on the dirt floor of their four-room house (“Henry Lee Lucas Information”). Often described as “an old rattlesnake”, people never portrayed Viola as motherly (Berry-Dee 252).
“Some of Us Had Been Threatening Our friend Colby” is a story full of irony, from the first paragraph to the last. A group of Colby’s friends decide to get together and hang him because he went too far. Throughout the story they discuss, with Colby, all the details of his upcoming death, occasionally seeking his opinion. The first example of irony in the story is “Some of us had been threatening our friend Colby for a long time, because of the way he had been behaving. And now he'd gone too far, so we decided to hang him.” The entire short story is filled with ironies such as this.
After stealthy killing around fifteen men, John finally finds the guy who sold the guns. He tells him that the guns weren’t his to sell and that he needs them back.

The second alikeness between the two of them is that they both intend to use the money they gained from the murders and present it to the greater good. For example, Svidrigalov gave most of the money from the inheritance of his dead wife to Sonya and the Marmeadov orphans, Dunya, and the family of his fifteen year old fiancé. Though Raskolnikov did not use any of the money he stole, his intent was to give all of the money he gained from killing the pawnbroker and spread it to the lower class that lost their possessions to her. They both know how in common they really are, that they both committed murder, however neither one truly confronts it until after Svidrigailov overhears Raskolnikov actually admitting to committing his murders. “Really?
