Stephen Shane Welch murder 8/18/1986 Fairbanks, AK *Patrick Harrington was convicted of his murder; sentenced to 99 years in prison*

remembering the victimsFrom lawsuit filed by Stephen Welch’s parents: Stephen Welch, age fourteen, lived with his mother in Waco, Texas. While visiting his father and stepmother in Fairbanks on August 18, 1986, he was sexually assaulted and shot to death by Patrick Harrington.

A search began for Stephen when he failed to return to his father’s house on August 18. His body was found on August 23, following a massive search. Harrington was arrested on August 29, and indicted by a grand jury on charges of first degree murder and first degree sexual assault on September 9.

Initially Harrington pleaded not guilty as charged, but on February 5, 1987, he changed his plea to guilty of first degree murder in exchange for dismissal of the first degree sexual assault charge. He was sentenced to 99 years in prison on April 30, 1987.

Monsters Among Us: Timothy Gonzales killed Lora Beth Williamson because she refused to have any kind sex with him

Lora Beth WilliamsonFrom Timothy Gonzales’ appeal: The body of Lora Beth Williamson was found in a Kansas cornfield on August 17, 1986. Williamson was last seen alive by witnesses the evening before at the Finney County free fair. At the fair, Gonzales and Adam Flores (“Flores”) had been spending time “checking out the scenery and checking out the women.” After Flores and Gonzales noticed Williamson, Gonzales said “he was going to try to get it,” and approached her. The two started a conversation and walked together while Flores followed behind. When they reached the parking lot, Flores stopped following them because “three’s a crowd.” The fair was ending, and that was the last Flores saw of Gonzales and Williamson that night. The next morning, Williamson’s body was found.

Flores testified that he had been in Gonzales’s car a few weeks before the murder and noticed a lock-blade knife on the console of the car. He stated that Gonzales had the same knife in a leather pouch fixed to his belt the night of the fair. The doctor who performed the autopsy testified that the victim died of knife wounds inflicted by a single-edged blade with a minimum length of two inches.

Officer Abundio Munoz (“Munoz”) was on the night shift patrol when the victim was killed. Investigating a bonfire in close proximity to where the body was found, he noticed a car traveling in the area. Officer Munoz testified that his attention was drawn to the car because it was unusual to see any traffic in the area at that time of night. He followed the car, called in the license plates, and discovered that it was registered to Ernest Campos, Gonzales’s brother-in-law. Campos testified that Gonzales had possession of the car that night because he was in the process of purchasing it.

Munoz was personally acquainted with Campos. He noticed that it was not Campos driving the car, and described the driver as a wet or sweaty Hispanic male with no shirt. Munoz did not pull the car over because the driver was neither driving erratically nor in violation of a traffic law.

Williamson had been stabbed numerous times and her throat had been cut. Though the upper portion of the body was soaked with blood, it was relatively clean from the waist down. Police found a semen stain on the victim’s leg, which was collected and sent to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (“KBI”) for analysis. The semen was examined by KBI serologist Kelly Robbins (“Robbins”), who found no sperm in the sample. Robbins noted that a complete absence of sperm was somewhat unusual, and told investigators that one explanation for this might be if the murderer and attempted rapist had a vasectomy. The fact that there was no sperm evident in the sample was not disclosed to defense counsel and was not introduced by the State at trial. Gonzales has not had a vasectomy and has a normal sperm count.

Blood, hair, and saliva samples were taken from Gonzales. Robbins testified that based on the genetic markers in the saliva and blood, Gonzales could be the donor of the semen found on the victim’s leg. Within the group of potential donors, approximately 26% of the Hispanic population would have all of the serological markers found in the sample, and 24% of the Caucasian population would have these markers.

Gonzales’s car was searched and samples were taken. The tires were removed from the car and sent to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“F.B.I.”) in Washington, D.C. A tire tread expert testified that the tires from Gonzales’s car matched the tracks from the crime scene in size and design, and at least one of the tires matched the wear of the tracks at the scene.

Two fibers found on the victim’s jeans matched fibers from the seat of Gonzales’s car in color and microscopic characteristics. Additionally, investigators sprayed a substance called Luminol on the interior of the car to detect traces of blood not visible to the naked eye. Though the Luminol test indicated traces of blood, the source of the blood was inconclusive.

In November 1986, the police obtained a warrant and searched Gonzales’s home. Under his bed, officers found a box containing pornographic magazines and a Garden City Telegram newspaper from August 18, 1986. The front page article was about Williamson’s murder. When interviewed by a KBI agent, Gonzales explained that he had the paper in his room because his sister used newspaper to wrap her baby’s diapers. Though Gonzales lived in the house with his sister, there were no diapers or baby supplies found in the room.

After Gonzales’s arrest, he was placed in custody in the county jail. He was held in the same cell as Jack Spears, who was incarcerated for another crime but was also under suspicion for the Williamson murder. During the investigation of Gonzales’s case, the KBI discovered that Spears had written a letter to another inmate alleging that Gonzales had confessed to killing Williamson. At trial, the letter was admitted into evidence before the State called Spears to testify and without objection by Gonzales’s defense counsel, Dennis Bahr (“Bahr”). Because Spears invoked his Fifth Amendment right and refused to testify, Bahr was unable to question him about Gonzales’s alleged confession. Spears testified at a hearing held after the trial that the letter was untrue, and that he wrote it to deflect suspicion for the crime away from himself.

A jury convicted Gonzales of one count of felony murder and one count of attempted rape. Gonzales was sentenced to life imprisonment on the felony murder charge, and, pursuant to the Habitual Criminal Act, Kan. Stat. Ann. 21-4504, ten to forty years on the attempted rape. The sentences were ordered to run consecutively. A motion to modify the sentence was denied, and Gonzales appealed.

In December 1989, the Kansas Supreme Court affirmed Gonzales’s convictions. See State v. Gonzales, 783 P.2d 1239 (Kan. 1989). In August 1992, Gonzales filed a motion for state habeas relief pursuant to Kan. Stat. Ann. 60-1507 in state district court in Kansas. In January 1994, the state district court denied him relief. In December 1994, the Kansas Court of Appeals affirmed the district court’s denial of the 60-1507 motion. Gonzales v. State, No. 71,217 (Kan. Ct. App. Dec. 30, 1994) (unpublished opinion). Review was denied by the Kansas Supreme Court in March 1995.

In April 1997, Gonzales sought federal habeas relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 2254 in the United States District Court for the District of Kansas. In November 1999, the district court denied Gonzales habeas relief as well as a certificate of appealability. Gonzales v. McKune, 76 F. Supp. 2d. 1222, 1229 (D. Kan. 1999). In December 1999, Gonzales filed notice of appeal seeking review by this court.

Psycho For Love: Drag Queen Cliff Youens stabbed girlfriend, Patrice LeBlanc, 39 times; Sentenced to life in prison

From Cliff Youens’ appeal: The body of a young woman was found floating in Lake Livingston on March 23, 1986. The body was clad in a dvawareness3nightshirt and wrapped in a quilt. The wrapped body was sewn into a comforter, a pillowcase placed over one end, and tied completely around with panty hose material and one piece of flowered, multicolored cloth. The body thus wrapped in multiple layers had been placed in a blue nylon drawstring bag and attached to two concrete cinder blocks by a decorative chain and a blue-gray work shirt. The body itself had been slash cut thirty-one times and stabbed eight times. The examining pathologist considered three of the stab wounds to be the fatal wounds. The pathologist estimated that the wounds had been inflicted with a sharp, thin-blade knife or knife-like instrument. The pathologist estimated that, as of the date of his examination, the body had been dead a minimum of fourteen days, putting the date of death at March 10, 1986 or earlier. Decomposition had rendered bloodtyping of the deceased no longer possible. The body was identified in early April from dental records as that of Patrice LeBlanc.

Patrice LeBlancThe peach-colored comforter in which the body was wrapped was one owned by the deceased and seen in the apartment she shared with appellant. The blue drawstring bag was identified as appellant’s laundry bag. The quilt, also kept in the apartment, belonged to appellant. Appellant’s former roommate testified that the flowered material used to wrap the body came from appellant’s belted, florescent-green flowered bathrobe. Appellant wore both regular pantyhose and “Danskin” pantyhose, whereas the deceased wore neither. One of appellant’s neighbors spotted several cinder blocks near the garbage dumpsters, some of which were an unusual color of yellow, and stated that they were no longer there around the first of April.

Appellant’s parents owned a lake house on Lake Livingston at Cape Royale as well as a boat which was docked at Cape Royale marina. Appellant had access to both. A piece of gold-colored decorative chain was obtained by police from a nail where it was hanging on the garage wall of the lake house. The chain was similar in color and design to that attaching the body to one of the concrete cinder blocks. An inspection of the boat revealed numerous fragments of concrete and chips of yellow paint similar in appearance to the yellow paint on the concrete blocks retrieved with the body. Scratch marks in the fiberglass on the bow and right aluminum railing contained what appeared to be yellow or gray paint.

The deceased had been living with appellant in Houston since the Fall of 1985 in an apartment on Timmons Lane. Among the items seized from that apartment and analyzed by a chemist with the Houston Police Department were three items found to be stained by human blood: one of appellant’s cowboy boots bearing a stain of type A human blood, a wood scraping from the bedroom closet door stained with human blood of an undetermined type, and a piece of flooring under the carpet of the extra room (referred to also as “the blue room”) containing human blood of an undetermined type which had been covered by blue paint.
