    I personally think the case should have been investigated more thoroughly...Due to knowing Ms.Henson as a friend, She would have been in great danger or thretened to commit this crime...He the victim himself, had a rough reputation in this town...I think that the investigaters should have looked into the evidence more than they did....I don't think she had a fair trial...She could not have commited this vicious crime by herself being the small women she is...Maybe she plead guilty due to the fact she could have been threatened to protect her family and children...
