Author's Comment:

Currently, the Cold Case Jury believes William Wallace was innocent. However, in terms of the most popular theory, it is a close call between Accomplice (innocent) and Wallace (guilty). A large proportion of jurors think Parry was the killer despite having an alibi for the nigtht of the murder.

R.I.P. Julia.

I wish to thank everyone who has voted so far and for their generous feedback on the book.
