Were other people involved in KC arson that killed 6 firefighters?


From Mike McGraw:

A federal review prompted by stories in The Kansas City Star has found new evidence that additional perpetrators may have been involved in a 1988 arson that killed six Kansas City firefighters.

The same federal review, however, found “no credible support” for allegations by numerous witnesses quoted in The Star that they lied or were coerced by investigators during a 1997 trial in the case.

Federal officials, however, said any new suspects in the case would have committed the crime along with the five people already serving life sentences, and the new information does not call into question the guilt of those five.
