    Larry, I’m intrigued by the Maria Ridulph case. In your experience with suspects, don’t they tend to unwittingly reveal their guilt when their protests always focus on how the “police can’t prove it”, or “they don’t have any evidence”, rather than saying things like “I would never kill anyone”? Jack Daniel McCullough seems to protest his arrest more than deny involvement, at least in the various accounts of interviews he’s given since his recent arrest. Your thoughts?
