I know Danielle Van Dam's abduction/murder was solved and the killer is ,thankfully behind bars,but I have a question and wasn't sure where to ask!

Anyhow............shortly after Westerfield's sentencing the Van Dam's appeared on Court TV and alluded to evidence/information about the case and Westerfield that was NOT allowed into the hearing but now that he was convicted it would all be coming out (I remember Mrs.Van Dam stated that there was, prior to Danielle's murder,instances of Westerfield "stalking" girls in their neighborhood etc) Well I have not heard anything further about this and was wondering if anyone had any links/book reconmendations or info to pass along because although this case has been solved I'd still like some follow-up.


Thanks!!!

If David Westerfield is going for an Appeal, I don't think they can release anything yet.

That is my understanding.

I followed that case and I think a lot of it was the videos were he had secretly taped a neighbor while she was working out in her home. The blinds were set so he could spy from his house. It was not presented in trial from what I remember.
Was that what you were looking for?

Bump, I'm going to change the title on this thread and move it to Awaiting Trials as Westerfield has filed an appeal.

Here is a book that was written about the evidence, the trial and the history of the case. Trust me, it's not a book you want to take to the beach to read :).

The book is a vanity publication written by an "unknown" author. Notice there is no identification of the writer. Probably written by one of the posters who posts daily at the local San Diego paper.

Yes the book was written by one of the UT's daily posters with the help of several other people including Westerfield's ex BIL who to this day maintains that Westerfield is innocent.

I have the full PDF of the appeal and I will figure out how to link it here.
