"anon." said, "i've read dons blogs, and those emails came from those blogs. anyone could have sent them."Not from his own email ID. The auto-bot sent back a message, based on what it found in the headers (checking for bogus ID's) to the sending ID, and he was the one who received it. Either he sent it, or someone used his computer and email account to send it.Much as I've enjoyed teasing you (and most of you deserve a sharp whack across the head from your parents), I must take my leave. Your constant whining annoys me, but I've been used to reading Byron Case whining since late in 1997.As for life, I can take a night off to take on this group once in awhile. Pissing off Byron Case and his friends is a hobby of some of us, and I rarely get to indulge, especially in such a concentrated dose.Tim, you are correct that most of these posts (mine included) have strayed far from the actual topic. I will, however, say in my defense that I DID mention that the main point of the original blog was how incongruous is was to contrast Byron Case's crime to the sensitive soul his blog projects, with just a hint that there's something wrong about having a convicted murderer as a friend, and also the fact that Case's friends were the ones who highjacked the topic.Mr. Rugg got attacked with such vitriol that I suspected that someone on MySpace sent a note out to everyone on the list and said, "let's show them how united we are and argue", and it all turned into one giant Group Whine.I think the point's been made. The only people critical of the blog are either MySpace pathetiques or local True Believers (who remain anonymous), acting as if it's a broad cross-section of regular readers. I just wanted to make sure the voice of reason was heard. It was like trying to teach the proverbial pig to sing: it wastes your time and annoys the pig."Anonymous" (who identified themselves by their words as one of Case's True Believers) says "Go wash you filthy mouth with soap. You poor smuck."The word, Ano, is "schmuck". I don't know what a "smuck" is. And go fuck yourself. I don't believe that I'm behaving any worse than, oh say, Byron Case did when he walked around Kansas City dressed as a priest wearing a button that said "I ass-raped your savior". The only difference is that he intended to indiscrimiately offend anyone who saw it; I'm targeting a specific group.I'm at peace myself, and I have plenty of friends, all of them on the outside. I only wish Anastasia were still one of them; in that respect, I am a lonely soul, but I'll survive.I know in my heart (and based upon the evidence presented) that Byron Case murdered Anastasia WitbolsFeugen with premeditation, that he would have killed again had he not been arrested and convicted, and I believe that he can have MySpace, he can have cable, he can get a college degree, he can father 12 children. But he'll never walk out a free man. And I also believe that you are all pathetic, because you never saw his dark side, and don't believe it existed.Good night to all, and get a life, all of you.
Don, I know you are in denial about those emails you sent to Anastasia WitbolsFeugen's memorial website ( http://www.stasia.org ), so I had a copy sent me, and I'd like to share it with you (since you swear you never sent it, I'm not going to worry about privacy or copyright issues):
From: Don Buchwalter <email ID deleted> 18 Mar 2007Talk about slander!Byron Case is the greatest man I've ever met. I have no doubt that his wrongful conviction will be overturned.It is unfortunate that Anastasia was murdered, but it is tragic that the wrong man is paying the price for that murder.From: Don Buchwalter22 Mar 2007A certain website, run by anti-Byron fanatics, claims that the supporters of Byron Case refuse to discuss the issue of a supposed "tacit admission." I will discuss it. For a person in the midst of a police investigation to refuse to discuss said investigation with a third party is perfectly normal. In fact, any defense attorney would instruct his client to remain silent unless representation was present. To say "We shouldn't talk about this." is not an admission, tacit or otherwise. It is what any intelligent person would say.What the anti-Byron fanatics fail to mention is that the phone conversation was a set-up. The state of Missouri's "witness" was obviously and blatantly attempting to goad Byron into saying something incriminating. When he did not, the state merely redefined the meaning of incriminating. They were desperate to make a conviction, and they were willing to do whatever it took to convict.When a case that steals the life of an incredible young man is based only on the lies of one witness, and the states blatant redefining of the 5th Amendment , we all lose.Please visit www.freebyroncase.com to read the true story.From: Don Buchwalter 07 Apr 2007 Your April 4th addition of a transcript of Byron's "tacit admission" proves nothing. A careful reading shows that he made_ no admission_, and that he was being goaded into making incriminating statements by a girl desperate to destroy him. It is sad that the Missouri courts had to throw out the law in order to convict an amazing man.
"you are an idiot. That's the entire problem."Oh, so nice to hear "expert" opinion from another true believer, escpecially as to my intelligence. It has nothing to do with intelligence here, just perspective. You could have read a signed confession and you wouldn't have believed it. The evidence was compelling to a jury, and you still think it was bogus. Congratulations: you really are a True Believer.I'm not going to argue the merits of Case's conviction here because (A) I wasn't on the jury and neither were you, (B) there really was a jury, approved by Case and his attorney, which found the prosecution testimony and evidence compelling and believable while disbeliving the defense, (C) the arguments are already well-presented at http://www.stasia.org/case_aga... and (D) the discussion here on this blog is not about the merits of the case (you have a web site that presents your "side"), but rather about how pathetic it is that so many otherwise intelligent people have been suckered into supporting a killer and to become losers themselves.I'm not here to argue, I'm just here to laugh at the expense of all you whiny sychophants in the same manner that Byron Case used to laugh at Anastasia's family after the murder.The jury made its call, I agree with their findings, and Judge Atwell made it clear that they had ample reason to do so with eyewitness testimony that matched the forensic evidence, and NO ALIBI. (see http://www.stasia.org/case_aga... to see).BTW, I didn't "say it best", I was just summarizing the claims from the BC website, which come down to nothing more than "we wuz railroaded". How many cons in prison will tell you they were "railroaded" because of evil prosecutors or cops, or because someone had it in for them? A substantial fraction, I'd guess. How many of them would you believe? That depends upon how many are as good-looking and as smooth-talking as Case.There are over a dozen unsolved murder cases currently in Jackson County, Missouri at this moment, some of them many years old. There was no "desperation" here, except in Case's description. He knew he was a suspect from the day of the murder, and he now acts like this was such a shock."Hell, prosecutors are TRAINED to be sociopaths."Now, THAT's an interesting theory. Why don't you suggest that Case use it in his next appeal? ALL prosecutors are evil, therefore all criminals are innocent. Shouldn't this be a line from "Sympathy for the Devil"?"A person can SAY ANYTHING... even under oath... And that was done... "You got that right. Byron Case lied his ass off in his efforts to save his ass. He'd lied so many times before that he thought it would work again this time. It didn't.American Jurisprudence 1, Lying little shit, 0."now what I want you to do is show me another shred of evidence against Byron"And now what I want you all to do is to go fuck yourselves. I've been reading and listening to Byron Case whine about how bad he had it since the week after Anastasia was murdered, because everybody was suspecting him, and Anastasia was such a good friend, and that we were all just being mean to him . . .And now that he is a convicted murderer, he still whines, and now has a fucking Greek chorus behind him to help whine for him when he gets to tired.Here is the bottom line: I don't got to show you no stinking evidence. The evidence was shown at trial, along with all his evidence and rebuttal, and he was fairly convicted. If you don't like the result, vote for a diffent god.It is now HIS responsibility to try to overturn that conviction, and from what I heard from the family recently, his latest appeal won't go far.I cannot actually speak for anyone in Anastasia's immediate family, but you've all provided me some entertainment today. Thanks.Peter, I loved your story. Do it again some time. You're not making fun of the afflicted; you're making fun of the affliction instead.WWW.CASECANGOFUCKHIMSELF.COM
Don,As for (1), University of Kansas, although psych only was my minor. But it really does not take a psych degree to read you like a cheap novel, just a look at your MySpace site was enough. Also, I've been shown the emails you sent to his victim's site (now kids, can you all say "Inappropriate Behavior"?), and they told me as much as I would ever need to know about you by themselves.(2), you're welcome, I guess. You are the most obvious "friend" of "Monochrome", naming your site after him. Do you win something for a high visitor count? I'll go again and hit "reload" if it helps.(3)Okay, maybe he fed it to you through an enema tube, but you haven't addressed any arguments. You're discounting facts as "irrelevant". That's my objection. You accept only the World According to Case, in which evil ex-girlfriends, desperate Sheriff's Departments, and glory-hungry prosecutors all conspire to go after the Golden Boy. Man, talk about "fantasy".(4) I have no problem with loyalty, in its proper place. What I see from you and too many others is blind, fanatical devotion.(5) Calling me "coward" for not using my name when direct and indirect harassment from Byron Case's friends and family (which has happened on occasion to several besides myself) is simply hypocrisy on your part. Doing so from a comfortable distance just makes the name-calling even more hypocritical.(6) Well, Don, I'm glad you're not frightened, as it was never my intent. All I meant to do was hold you up to others who read this as a target of ridicule, and I believe I've succeeded on that effort.If you want to see your "arguments" rebutted, just go to http://www.stasia.org/case_aga... , where that has been done pretty well already. I'm just here for the entertainment.I'm not "resorting" to any such attack, just putting in writing what is obvious to the rest of the world who reading Plog: that Byron Case is a killer who is doing much better than the girl he brutally murdered 10 years ago, and that his fans are pathetic fools.WWW.FUCKBYRONCASE.COM
"Sylvia" says that "[a]bsolute and unquestioning loyalty is characteristic of solid foundations in meaningful relationships". Well, "Sylvia", that is also a defining characteristic of cults. Loyalty is indeed characteristic of a meaningful relationship, something I doubt you really have with Byron Case (who never had a meaningful relationship with anyone but himself), but unquestioning loyalty is what Manson got from his followers."Sylvia" says her "belief in Byron's innocence was developed through reading every available court document", etc."Available" is the key word in here. The documents on Case's website have been cherry-picked, are a fraction of what was out there, and many listed were totally irrelevant to the trial. If Case and his friends really wanted to let you see everything, they would include a transcript of the trial, and you would see that the prosecution's eyewitness testimony was far from "highly questionable", and in fact was quite compelling; you would see that two defense witnesses (personal friends of the killer) got caught up during cross-examination and looked rather foolish; you would see that the prosecution built a strong case against Case, breaking down his alibi, and that most of Case's defense during the trial was little more "Screw 'reasonable doubt', I want you to prove it beyond absolute doubt!" and "Liar Liar, pants on fire!"But you're not interested in that, are you? You have all the "facts" necessary, spoon-fed to you by Case & Co. And you also have that "meaningful relationship" with Byron Case.Do you have any idea of how many women wrote to Ted Bundy when he was on Death Row and wanted to marry him? You're not just a fool, you're a pathetic fool.
Byron Case, when I met him, seemed a very charismatic young man, one who was capable of gaining and commanding blind loyalty from friends and family, and capable of making them believe anything. People are always looking for a leader of people. Sadly, sociopaths frequently don't make for good leaders. Charles Manson didn't; neither does Byron Case.I could simply follow Don Buchwalter's comment with the remark "I rest my case", as he almost perfectly epitomizes that blind loyalty. He talks of others "refusing to even consider the truth", when he made up his mind before ever considering any evidence except what was spoon-fed him by Byron Case.As for "cowardice" at not giving names, I live in Kansas City, where there is still the possibility of harassment. Don't think that's a possibility, Don? Ask your buddy about his old friends Peige and Allie. Neither lives in town anymore, and with reason.And where do you live, Don? Pennsylvania, you say? Weeeeell, it's real brave of all of you MySpace friends to give your names as if you're all local.Some posters here have argued about Byron Case's right to free expression. I'd like to argue in favor of Anastasia WitbolsFeugen's same rights, but she's dead, and Byron Case did it.Mr. Buchwalter thinks the First Amendment "forces" him to put up with "kooks" like me. No, it is what allows a killer like Byron Case to continue to spout his lies.Attending the trial gave me no insights into Case's personality; meeting him in person before the killing and knowing his victim DID give me insight, however. Attending the trial DOES give me a good idea of its fairness.Byron case is a killer, a liar, and a sociopath, and his "friends" are fools.I'm actually a bit sorry that this story was even printed, as it gives free publicity to a rightfully convicted killer. It's just giving another forum for his friends to use.
Having read the first seven comments from friends of this true poet and convicted killer, Byron Case, I cannot help but wonder what kind of reaction the Pitch would have received from friends of Charlie Manson had it done a similar profile on his ennui while in prison. These six people (one having written twice) are truly scary, speaking so caringly and lovingly about this convicted, cold-blooded killer as if he had taken a thorn from each one's paw. They all are proud to say they are friends of this guy. None of them knew his victim. None of them care about his victim, who was 18 when he took her life.One of the posters wants us all to look at the web site specifically set up for this killer's defense, a site that contains partial truths and some outright whoppers.Here is the other side of the coin: to learn the side of the victim, go to this site (http://www.stasia.org/case_aga... and compare.I knew Anastasia WitbolsFeugen when she was alive. I even knew Byron Case at that time, and I attended his trial, an advantage I have over most of the previous posters. If anything, Peter Rugg painted far too sympathetic a picture of this "man".
