Newark Cold Case Solved

Another case I came across while researching my book involved five Newark boys who went missing in 1978.

In 2008, one of the murderers visited a brother of one of the victims. “He said he’d become a born-again Christian and so he had to tell the truth.” That stood out for me. Murderers often use the fact that they are born-again as a reason why they should be pardoned.

I always thought if they were truly born again and repentant they would say the exact opposite. They would say they were ready to pay for their sins.

Honestly, I don’t know how anyone can pay for what they did, the truth of what happened is spectacularly horrible, and it’s just so wrong that one of the killers got to live out his life and die of natural causes, but the complete New York Times article I quoted from can be found here (the picture is from the Times article).
