Martin Sheen is a very fine actor, which is precisely where his expertise ends. The strong impression from a distance is that he is probably also a sincere and decent man, but not the first to be fooled by Jens Soering. Fame gives his uninformed opinion about the Soering case no added authority whatever. His … Continue reading A Letter from Martin Sheen
To date, former detective Richard Hudson has been rather cast in the role of Chip Harding's trusty sidekick, seemingly positioned there to nod in agreement with everything Harding says. But last week he emerged from the shadows to give his very own interview, albeit brief, to Sandy Hausman of WVTF Radio. It's astonishing how much … Continue reading Richard Hudson Speaks! (Updated)
There is a well known series of books for a general readership published as x, y or z... For Dummies.

This time former FBI agent Stanley Lapekas had … Continue reading The Profile and the Press Conference
Mathias Schroeder has already been mentioned on this site. His letters of 2005 and 2008 were quoted from at length in the earlier guest post by pgb38. It need only be said, therefore, that Mathias is a German citizen who was for some weeks imprisoned with Jens Soering at a young offenders' institution in England … Continue reading Statement of Mathias Schroeder to the Virginia Parole Board
As promised some weeks ago, it's now time to return to Mortal Thoughts and examine further examples of Jens Soering's relentless catalogue of lies. Truly, it is the gift that keeps on giving. Unlike parts I and II there is no specific theme here. This is more in the nature of a mopping up operation … Continue reading Mortal Thoughts, part III: Continuing Lies
