Texas Death Row Inmate Henry "Hank" Skinner Confessed!

Texas Death Row Inmate Henry "Hank" Skinner Confessed!

By SOP newswire2

Will Additional DNA Testing Be Conducted Before Nov 9th for a Condemned Hank Skinner?...

Skinner confessed and the confession was deemed inadmissible, but is part of the appellate record.

A "completely incapacitated" Skinner, somehow, traveled the 4 blocks from the murder scene, went to his ex girlfriends house, hid in her closet and he was covered in blood from the crime scene. 

Skinner`s own blood spatter expert found that Skinner`s "passed out" story was inconsistent with the blood being all over Skinner. 

Skinner`s defense is that he was completely incapacitated the night of the murders, which is contradicted by his confession, by the blood spatter evidence and by his travels to his ex girlfriends house? 

Why did Skinner chose to walk the 4 blocks to his ex girlfriends house, instead of calling the police? 

Skinner refused additional DNA testing because he was implicated by the prior, multiple DNA tests, pre trial, that tied him to the crime scene and he didn`t want more DNA to hurt his case. 

The only reason for such denial of additional DNA testing is that Skinner knew additional DNA evidence would harm him even more. 

Skinner, his defense counsel and other death penalty opponents are saying that the untested DNA will prove Skinner innocent, meaning that Skinner decided, pre trial, that it was better to face a death sentence than to face freedom, the only "logic" for Skinner`s refusal of the additional DNA testing, when he "knew" it would prove his innocence. Absurd, of course. 

Could this be another anti death penalty fraud? Of course.
