Description

The State claims Marilyn was killed by a series of 35 savage blows, 25 of them on the head. Defense attorney, William J. Corrigan, alleges that six wounds on Marilyn's forehead were exactly 1 inch apart, creating a possibility that perhaps a many-pronged tool was used instead. By Corrigan's theory, as the author of this article states, "the attacker would have had plenty of time to finish the job-- to inflict 35 wounds-- before Sam arrived on the scene."
