Iowa has been trying to track sex offenders for 50 years and could not figure out a way to do so efficiently, so they came up with the Iowa sex offender residency law in 2002.

The defendant, a man named Jeffery Middlebrook admitted to the crime immediately. However, after a thorough autopsy, it was found that the victim was killed nearly a week before Middlebrook said he had been there, and there was video footage of him in another state at the estimated time of death, making things even murkier than before. Dr. Bass was called in for his expertise. Dr. Bass studied the case reports, crime scene photos, and weather reports, finding that because of frigid temperatures during the days between death and the discovery of Barnett’s body, very little decomposition had taken place .Despite the temperatures, however, there were multiple colonies of mold growing on Barnett’s body.

This “excuse” for wanting to keep this cruel act legal is quickly dismissed when taking a look at the historical records of horse slaughter. The number of horses slaughtered in the U.S. has changed dramatically in the past twenty years. Peaking at nearly 350,000 annually in the late 1980s, and falling to a little more than 42,000 in 2002, its lowest level in recorded history.

Or have you lost a lot of weight?’ ‘Some.’ In fact, during the past three weeks Dewey had dropped twenty pounds.”(149) Capote clearly does not give his insight into this situation, however, he supplies enough information for the fellow citizens of Holcomb together with the reader to realize that Dewey has focused all of his bodily strength into solving the mystery. Capote’s close relations with the detectives has obviously made him a very knowledgable insider within Clutter family murders. His job was to inform the public to this kind of information, and when gossip spread like wildfire, “the Clutter tragedy had become a banned topic at both of the community’s principal gossip dispensaries -- the post office and Hartman’s Café” (190)
