Six years ago all I knew about Bernard Welch was what I had read in the papers. Sure, I had researched his past criminal life when I was investigating the ghost burglaries. I had also helped process him when he was finally arrested and searched his house in
. I had interviewed his common-law wife Linda, seen his children and saw him in court when he was tried for murder. But I did not know him. Virginia
Yes, I discovered many things about Bernard Welch. These past years of research, learning of his life, learning of his actions, and reading what others have said of him have been extraordinarily revealing; I know him now.
