The boy admits going out of his house at 8:00, after being slapped by his father
He went to a neighborhood store and bought a switch knife. The storekeeper was arrested the next day when he admitted selling it to the boy
I think everyone agrees that its an unusual knife. Pretty hard to forget
As a present for a friend of his, he says
The storekeeper identified the knife and said it was the only one of its kind he had in stock. Why did the boy get it.
Am I right so far?
Next, the boy claims that on the way home the knife must have fallen through a hole in coat pocket, that he never saw it again. Now there's a story, gentlemen. You know what actually happened. The boy took the knife home, and a few hours later stabbed his father with it and even remembered to wipe of the fingerprints
You bet he's right. Now listen to this man. He knows what he's talking about
No. I'm saying that it's possible that the boy lost the knife, and that someone else stabbed his father with a similar knife. It's possible.
Everyone connected with the case identified this knife. Now are you trying to tell me that someone picked it up off the street and went up to the boy's house and stabbed his father with it just to be amusing?
Take a look at that knife. It's a very strange knife. I've never seen one like it before in my life. Neither had the storekeeper who sold it to him. Aren't you trying to make us accept a pretty incredible coincidence?
I'm not trying to make anyone accept it. I'm just saying it's possible.
