Two Sides to Every Story
Due to highly questionable practices and occurences both inside the court room and outside in Arizona generally and in the media, facts have been ignored and fictions are as many as the fallen Autumn leaves.
Arizona was the home of the famous death row inmate called the “Battery Acid Killer”. Did you know it’s a proven fact that battery acid was never used?
A Maricopa Arizona Prosecutor told a commutation board in 2012 that this man injected his victim with battery acid. He told the board that Robert Towery’s mitigating claim of “childhood abuse” was a desperate sham and a phony plea for leniency.
In fact, the inmate as a child suffered some of the most horrific abuse imaginable. He had two very credible eyewitnesses. In fact, he took the beatings as well as those that were meant for his two sisters. The inmate was put to death 6 days later.
The prosecutor’s name was Juan Martinez.
Arizona was also the home of the famous death row inmate called “the Snaggle Tooth Killer”. This was because the bite marks on the victim matched his very unique tooth pattern.
The problem was the defendant was one of few people who couldn’t possibly make that bite mark. Maricopa County prosecutors simply went through a series of experts until they found one willing to testify that the defendant’s teeth matched the bite mark. That’s all the evidence they had. He’s a free man today and he is a spokesman for wrongful convictions.

Did you know that in Arizona, a man named Scott Lehr was convicted of three murders and sentenced to death? He was also sentenced in 1997 to 17 consecutive life sentences on 32 counts of attempted murder, sexual assault and kidnapping”.
Lehr is known as the “Baby Seat killer” for supposedly using a baby seat in his car to appear harmless as he lured women between the ages of 10 and 48 into his car, then drove them out to secluded places in the desert.
– Lehr was arrested and tried when a man named Andrew Thomas was the D.A. He has since been disbarred and removed for corruption and political attacks on officials and even judges, costing Maricopa County millions in lawsuits.
– Many of the victims reported build, face, age, and hair color much different than the defendants’. These reports were later amended to instead report that the suspect matched Lehr’s description.
– Several witnesses completely changed their descriptions of the make, model, and color vehicle Lehr was driving after they spoke with prosecutors working on the case.
– A baby seat was not a part of most eyewitness descriptions, until after talking with prosecutors. One reported she saw a maroon baby seat, while Scott’s baby seat was blue.
-Scott Lehr was sitting at the defendant’s tables at the front of the courtroom when an eyewitness / victim was asked to identify her attacker. The victim pointed at a man standing in the back of the courtroom.
She repeatedly stated that the man in the defendant’s chair (Scott Lehr) was not the man who attacked her.
-The prosecution expert DNA witness admitted that some of the DNA evidence could have matched millions of other people. Even animals and insects “could not be excluded”.
So, most likely, if Scott Lehr is guilty, he is innocent of many of these charges, leaving several dangerous kidnapper / rapists free to attack women again. Was it more important for Maricopa prosecutors to clear these unsolved cases than to catch the actual perpetrators?

Did you know that in Arizona, a man with his accomplice killed two young girls?
He lured a 13 year-old girl and her 13 year-old companion out into the desert with his accomplice. He savagely beat, choked and raped one girl on the hood of his car. The two men then strangled the girls to death and stomped on their bodies with all their weight, then threw their naked and lifeless bodies down a mine shaft and burned their clothes.
It was his plan, his DNA, his car, his foot impressions on the victim, and the victim’s impressions in the hood of his car.
This man was charged with 2nd degree murder in Arizona and is free today. He made a deal with the prosecutor, because they needed his cooperation to get the death penalty for his accomplice.
The District Attorney also made a deal with Robert Towery’s accomplice, who served just 10 years for felony murder.
The District Attorney also made a deal with John Matzke, who with his accomplice tied up, assaulted, and tortured a man and a 16 year-old boy before crushing the windpipe of one with a metal bar and strangling the other with a bedsheet.
These violent criminals are free today and could even be your neighbors, largely due to the D.A.’s non-reliance on modern forensic science, a failure doing thorough investigations, and success at making deals to secure the death penalty. Matzke is now living in Tuscon. The State even took steps to protect his identity.
Now Arizona is the home of “The Most Hated Woman In America”. Most people believe she belongs on Death Row. They might benefit from a little research on the Internet.
We encourage everyone who is interested in fairness and Justice to take a closer look at the other side of the Story, and then decide for yourself.

“Rubin Carter was falsely tried
The crime was murder ‘one’ guess who testified?
Bello and Bradley and they both baldly lied
The newspapers – they all went along for the ride
How can the life of such a man
Be in the palm of some fool’s hand ?
To see him obviously framed
Couldn’t help but make me feel ashamed to live in a land
Where justice is a game.”
From The Hurricane by Bob Dylan (Nov. 1975)
