Info William B. Leonard, might be S/ our case, Det. Steve Litschauer sending info
<SHANKS> I've looked for this guy before, wondering why he'd be considered a suspect. Never found much, so just dripping it here. " According to court records, Leonard argued he did not deserve the death penalty because new evidence shows he suffered mental health problems at the time he stabbed Joseph Wright with a prison-made shank.
The new mental health evidence indicates Leonard has poor impulse control and may react violently and uncontrollably when he feels threatened or if intoxicated or frightened, according to court records.
At the time, Leonard was in prison for killing two people in Mineral County. Wright was also serving a term for murder, according to court records."
Took another stab at this guy. I can only ever find info on his last murder that was committed in prison. Just today I found that he was in prison for murdering two men in mineral city ca 1981. Weirdly, he wrote a book and apparently gave detailed accounts of the crime, even selling it on Amazon! A woman who blogs for him even stated publicly the proceeds would go to him! Anyway,anybody with a newspaper sub want to try?
