I liked the writing style that was clean, direct, and to the point. The sequence of events and comparison of the time lines between the activities of the Walker family and the sightings of Hickok and Smith ties together bet well.
It was frustrating about the DNA sample contamination. Hopefully in the near future the results will be better since there are improvements to the technology and the technician will do a better job handling samples.
The most compelling clue were the boot prints at the Clutter crime scene being so similar to ones found at the Walker crime scene. It is unfortunate that the KBI would not allow the boots to be used for a better analysis.
I remember one thing that a psychiatrist noted about Hickok and Smith, that alone their crimes tended to be non-violent. It was the dynamics once they paired up that unleashed their violence. Together they were vicious. Had they not been apprehended, they would have continued killing.
I know that Capote played on Hickok's poverty and Smith's terrible childhood, but other people have endured worse and did not become killers. It does not justify what they did to the Clutters and most likely to the Walkers.
It is very likely that this young family were also victims of this deadly pair.
If you read In Cold Blood, you need to read this book.
When new information becomes available I hope Mr Hunter does an update on the book.
JT hunter wrote the story of Hickock and Smith who at the time of another horrendous murder were both released from prison, found this book to be a page turner. If you enjoy True crime, you need to buy this one.

So there is no proof that the same killers who murdered the Clutter family had anything whatsoever to do with the murders of the Walker family.Read more
