I was at the Hester trial in the courtroom of Judge Alexander Napoli day after day as the injustice was done. I wrote at the time, to no interest, that the murderer was most probably a deranged worker at the school Lee attended, a truth suppressed in court but made eminently clear in the narrative linked to below..
I made efforts when the Web came into being to find out what had happened and eventually contacted people who were indeed working on the case more than four decades later.
I have the original article I did on Lee somewhere and may post it in time, but the piece below is so riveting, so thorough and so damning that I do not want to waste a minute in helping to alert anyone with ears to hear and eyes to see that an injustice was done long ago in Chicago and needs to be properly resolved now.
"This article tells the untold story of Lee Arthur Hester and his case, raises questions about Hester's guilt, and takes the Supreme Court to task for failing to use Hester's case to provide greater protections to juvenile suspects during police interrogations." SOURCE
