|Dan Rassier, superb trumpet player|
I would guess most people are like me, having spent years rather convinced that this case would never be satisfactorily resolved, with a known offender identified.

Rassier was always a responsible and productive person. Even if he had not been, he didn't deserve to be thrust into the focus of an investigation that sought to find someone who abducted, molested and killed an 11-year-old boy.
He was detailed in describing his day, more detailed, I'm sure, than I would be in this situation. Heaven help me if I was sat down for such questioning, because I'm just not that observant. I get lost in what I'm doing or what I'm thinking about. I suppose I'd get nailed.
Rassier must not have given false information to law enforcement, because that would be a crime.
Rassier surely felt the wrath of God, as it were, once law enforcement began snarling and putting pressure on him, even pressure to "confess." The whole ordeal is Exhibit 'A' in why defense attorneys are an essential element in our criminal justice system.
