Maybe nugs! What does not ring true is the fact he had sustained a number of wounds to his chest one of those wounds caused a collapsed lung, all the other wounds were superficial and not one drop of blood from him in the position of where he claimed to have been attacked.  There was one drop of blood in the hallway where he said he had passed out.  He even took time to wash his hands before calling the police..his blood was found below the sink on the bathroom floor.  :-\ :-\ :-\ :-\

Hi Nugs  I understand Jeffrey MacDonald was a Surgeon so he would know exactly where to inflict the wound without it being fatal.

he couldn't know it wouldn't be fatal because he wouldn't know when he was going to be found and treated.

mind you if it was all done on the spur of the moment he not of thought of that.

Having done some research lately on this. I have concluded that Jeffrey MacDonald is guilty.

What persuaded you Neil?

No single factor, but the totality of the evidence.  I read into the case a few years ago and I think overall that the evidence is overwhelming.  The evidence at trial about the holes in the pygamas was persuasive.  Also MacDonald's inconsistent accounts and his abysmal performance on the Dick Cavett show persuaded me that he was lying.  I believe he committed the crime in a rage when high on amphetamines.  He has no chance of winning an appeal - the US system imposes a much higher hurdle for criminal appeals than the UK.  He will never be released.

The blood groupings also contradict his version of events. One of his daughters was killed in the main bedroom and her body was then carried and placed on her bed in her bedroom. There was non of Jeffrey MacDonalds blood in the living room where he claimed to have been attacked and stabbed. There was however his blood in the bathroom.

Also the Esquire magazine found in the living room -

“The investigators were struck by similarities between MacDonald’s account of murderous intruders and the Esquire magazine’s articles about the Manson murders and other cult-like activities. For example, the magazine contained many references to blonds, burning candles, and use of the words “acid” and “groovy.” In the Manson murders, the victims were mutilated and the word “PIG” was allegedly smeared on a wall in the victims’ blood. Those and other pertinent passages from Esquire were read into the record during MacDonald’s trial.”
