Cornell McKay's Lawyers Want Megan Boken's Killer To Testify

Megan Boken.
The allegations raised by McKay's lawyers have reopened wounds for Megan Boken's family, especially Ramsey's claim that "Megan Boken would be alive right now" had police arrested Esters in time.

That argument was so offensive to Boken's sister, Annie Boken Palazzolo, that she penned a stinging letter to the editor in the Post-Dispatch earlier this week, writing: "I refuse to sit by while Ramsey takes advantage of Megan's tragedy."

As for Ramsey, he stands by his client.

"I feel very badly for the Boken family. And I can feel how they've been traumatized through this process," he says. "But I am doing my best to represent an innocent man. When I see things that have been done improperly and illegally in the course of an investigation, then I have a solemn duty to my client to raise those issues. I consider them to be legitimate issues."

Here's the motion filed by McKay's lawyers's yesterday, requesting Keith Esters be brought as a witness at next week's hearing.

Why not just execute both Esters and McKay? It would solve a lot of problems.  


@chadgarrison Please know that we have intentionally not argued our view in the media. We will do so in court, as is appropriate.


@dalediversity  wow. what problems are you referring to?

@JenniferJoyceCA  I know chad is kind of a pussy but you are a worthless piece of shit jennifer joyce, seriously


@JenniferJoyceCA @chadgarrison  "Tell you the truth, I can't say nothing that gonna benefit him [McKay] because in the end it's gonna make me look bad."- Esters. Pretty powerful quote.


@chadgarrison Yes, the media coverage is what I'd expect since they are only hearing one side. We're focused on pursuing justice in court.


@JenniferJoyceCA Just so long as you're aware what the media is reporting. Conviction doesn't seem to pass the smell test.


@dalediversity @unclebuck38  It's sad that money is more important to you than someones life,  Also it's very racist of you to assume that just because Cornell is black that he's on welfare.
