Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Update on Dr. Macdonald's case of potential false imprisonment:


I was a Green Beret doctor at the same time Jeff was at Ft. Bragg. I knew him then and after I got back from Viet Nam I met him several times in LA as I was an ER doc when he was an ER doc in Long Beach. Lot of interesting stories. Did he do it? He told me he didn't and I believed him. But later found out he didn't tell me the whole story. Another doc and good friend was there with me and he knew him also.. He felt he was guilty from the get go. He had a puncture wound to the right lung. Great place if you want to survive and make it look like you were at risk of dying. A little to neat. A friend of Jeffs (a officer in the MSC} had talked with Jeff and told me Jeff had talked with him about the Tate murders after reading the Esquire article. When I read the book about the murders they said the magazine was on the table in Jeffs house. But what Jeff told him about the article convinced him (the MSC officer) that Jeff was guilty. So how do you know that an innocent man was convicted? Dont be selective in those versions you believe are the truth just because it fits your preconceptions.
