A photograph displayed movie-sized on a projection screen in Criminal Court Judge Richard Baumgartner's courtroom showed Newsom's body burned from head to toe. His face was unrecognizable.I can't remember what the focus of the media was at the time, but I do remember wondering why this wasn't covered.
State arson investigator Robert Watson said an accelerant - likely gasoline - had been poured directly on Newsom's body and ignited.
Authorities say Newsom was raped, bound, gagged and led to the railroad tracks, where he was shot execution-style.
Christian, they say, was kept alive inside the Chipman Street house for several more hours, repeatedly raped and then stuffed inside a trash can. She suffocated to death.
I won't repeat any of the (truly disturbing) descriptions of what these two people endured. You can click through if you are interested. [via Michelle Malkin]
