The Diary Of The D.C. Sniper

Anthony Meoli, M.A., J.D., CFC

The Diary of the D.C. Sniper is a verbatim transcript of the actual diary obtained directly from Lee Boyd Malvo and a must read. The "Diary" was penned approximately two and a half years after the start of Lee's life prison sentence began, pulled from the source himself as he reflected on what he had done. It took him quite a long time to process the troubles prior to the crimes and the horror of its aftermath. The book also contains some of Lee's original artwork which places the reader in the exact moment of events as they occurred.

Permission to publish the diary was not a simple process. In fact, there had been no mention by Lee that a diary even existed until 2009. It was through years of written correspondence between Mr. Meoli and Lee Malvo (including hundreds of letters), and over 50 hours of telephone calls, that Lee decided it was time to tell his side of the story which has never been told before. The "Diary," which has been fully authorized for release by Malvo, explains the psychological triggers, emotional and traumatic life events that eventually allowed him to become one-half of the D.C. Snipers.

Expert Witness Manual

Jess E. Dines

The importance of the expert witness has been long established in our judicial system. The plain fact is that in the modem era, the expert is indispensable. Multi-million-dollar judgments depend on accurately reconstructing an accident, identifying a forged signature, matching a latent fingerprint with a person, tracing a microscopic bit of DNA to its owner, or any of a thousand other procedures that are now commonplace. Such witnesses are needed to establish the credibility of evidence-or call into doubt that credibility. Expert Witness Manual provides a guide as to how this is done. With a contribution on Criminology by renowned Forensic Scientist, Dr. Henry Lee, Criminalist for the famed O.J. Simpson Trial.
