Thanks for the Hallowell tip, and the other research you have done.
What I guess the Medical examiner is doing at the house, is looking for instruments or ligatures that would have left distinctive marks on Kelsey Smith.
Or, if the cannibalism “jokes” turn out to less than funny...well, that’s almost too awful to contemplate.
Hmmm, that’s possible - good thinking. I had hoped we’d hear more after KC people saw their late local TV news, but I guess not.
I found a bench warrant that is still out from Wichita municipal court for Aletha under her maiden name. Funny, the index to the warrants says they are from the past 5 years, but this one was issued in 1999.
The date on it was 9-27-1999, which is 4 days after Edwin/Jack’s firearms arrest on 9-23-1999, so I’m betting she was a witness and didn’t appear when she was subpoena’ed.
That answers the question of whether she knew about it or not. She must have graduated from her private HS (”away from the druggies and horndogs”) that May-June of 1999. He got out of juvie on June 30, 1999. Then in September, she was apparently with him when he did that. And then they married the next February and started the hunt for their happy home *wherever.*
