Good sketch of James Pierce as he sits in the Chester courtroom. This was shared with me by my dear cousin Char. She and I are equally crazed about finding Pierce information.
Did he kill a man? You read the articles and change your mind each time. Seems he did it then it seems he and his brother were at the wrong place at the wrong time and possibly framed. There is testimony from a woman who swears he did it ( no evidence, mind you) but turns out she was James' sweetheart. James was married so perhaps the woman felt scorned because he wouldn't leave his wife. Just because he was an adulterer doesn't mean he was a murderer, right? There is ALOT of speculation.
Goal for this one will be the end of January. If it's done earlier - then I'll splurge on an expensive celebratory Belgian ale. Now that's motivation!
