GUILTY CA - Howard Witkin, 32, slain in his Santa Clara home, 21 Mar 1980
had anyone heard of this case before? I watched it last month on this show called "Unusual Suspects". It was one of the best episodes of that show I've seen and it seemed like his wife did just about everything she should have except for screwing her husband's lawyer. I'm surprised the case hadn't been on any other crime shows before because it was so close to never having been found out. Had the two flunkies in the case who worked at the restaurant kept there mouth shut, the (as it later was discovered) middleman would never have been caught and if his wife hadn't pissed him off, she likely wouldn't have been caught. It's almost like the plot was like an airplane and you had to have both engines (the first engine being the triggerman and the second being the middleman) to fail for the mastermind to eventually get caught.
