There were members of the defense team with whom Tim had grown inappropriately close, close enough that Judge Matsch raised questions with me about whether some of them should be released from the team. I told him that they should stay, although privately I felt they should go, but their friendship and the relationships were important to Tim.Please pardon or ignore this post if it is not directly applicable to the McCauley discussion. I figured if it was pertinent, it might be insightful. Also, I could not find this article on the web and that's why I don't have a link for you. Thanks again to the FReepers that keep the OKC ping list up 'n running and very informative!
So we labored on, through months of tension, crises of morale, government stonewalling, demonizing media coverage, and professional frustration. In hindsight, I was too trusting of some members of the team, two of whom would personally betray me. (One released confidential defense documents reflecting Tim's purported conversations with investigators and his lawyers to the Dallas Morning News, which published them to great fanfare a month before trial, after jury notices had been mailed.)
Are you sure it was money? I can think of at least 4 post-bombing murders in this case. Fear can be a very strong motivator.
More like two dozen, either certain murders or very convenient *accidents.*
OKCSubmariner had a pretty good compilation going at one time, including the OKC Assistant US Attorney who supposedly shotgunned himself to death. And, of course, OKC PD officer Terrance Yeakey, El Reno prison Guard Joe Gladden, and Dr. Don Chumley, who was killed in a private plane crash before giving a deposition regarding his claim that he was ordered by two uninjured BATF agents to bandage them at the scene of the explosion.
