Ken’s Hearing- Oct 23

On Tuesday of this week, Ken Andersen appeared back in court to introduce new evidence that he is innocent of the crime of murder. I spoke with him on the phone Wednesday, and Ken thinks the hearing went very well. He and his attorney, were able to bring to light many new facts that add to a pile of evidence he is not the person responsible for Chad Swedberg’s murder.

This is a long process and very difficult to accomplish. If any of you are watching season 2 of Netflix’s “Making of a Murderer”, it is easy to have reasonable doubt either of those men committed that crime. In spite of a world wide audience that is convinced of their innocence, they both remain imprisoned. Ken’s situation is no different. Many people want to always give law enforcement the benefit of the doubt, and this is what occurs when all they desire is a conviction at any cost.

Ken outlined the process that is happening now, and believes he should hear an ultimate ruling in about five months. The media was mostly silent this week, except for Kevin Wallevand, at Channel Six in Fargo. Here is the interview he gave with Ken’s mother, Geraldine Bellanger.

So why did she lie?

Last week I posted the testimony of Leslie Fain. Below is the testimony of Stacy Weaver. His story has been vetted and he remains steadfast in that he saw Leslie, Jesse, and her brother the morning Chad was killed. How is this possible? This is the very time she claimed to be at home watching Chad leave to his fate. Why did she omit this early morning outing? What was she doing?

Leslie Fain’s Story

This sad story has always begun and ended with Leslie Fain. She is the one who first reported her husband’s death and called 911. She was the first story investigator’s talked to and gave them them her opinion of her and Chad’s life. The following pages show how she didn’t like Kenneth and Lisa Swedberg, how she admits the stress Chad was under with her own family crowding into live at their house, and how she worried Chad and Al Baker’s maple syrup stand might be in trouble since they didn’t own the land it was on. Leslie gives an “account” of what happened on the morning he was slain. I used quotes, because later it was discovered she wasn’t telling the whole truth and skipped some things that would put herself in jeopardy. She even implicates Kenneth Swedberg in the murder. Leslie spins another tale of how Chad was going to buy a green house. At first she claims they were not having financial difficulty but later her bank statement show dozens of bounced checks, so buying anything would prove to be a problem. They were found to be borrowing money to make their past due mortgage payments as well. Leslie gives several bogus “accounts” about the sale of the infamous Tikka rifle. After reading these four pages, how could she be trusted to give any account that could be used in court is beyond belief?
