I have often wondered if there was a third possibility. The rapist who matched the DNA sample had a history of attacking women who were in distress or incapacited, that is women who were highly intoxicated or whose car had broken down in remote areas or the like. Is it not conceivable that those running through the park attacking people might not have struck her and injured her head, and then the rapist comes along and finding her incapacitated sexually assaults her. Again that is compatible with his previous M.O. We have a very bad tendency to think of life in terms of either/or when most of the time it is anything but.
I heard on MPR, the guy confessed after spending time in prison and finding out these guys were in for HIS crime. He was already in for life so he faced no additional time.
After they confessed, I have a hard time seeing the city at fault. After stalling for 10 years before anybody gets a day in court, I have a hard time thinking they should get zero.
