So far the evidence examined shows that Alfred probably was telling the truth. An electron microscope has been put to use in examining evidence. A little piece of lead found in some clothing matches the lead found in Packer's gun. The article online from the Denver Post is now gone, but it was dated Feb. 13, 2001. You may see a lot more about him in the next few weeks, especially with the Hannibal movie being so popular. Alfred claimed in his 2nd and 3rd confessions that Shannon Bell had killed the others and that Alfred killed Bell in self defense. Alfred's first confession was hog wash. You can read it and the other confessions at the Colorado State site. Alfred was never convicted of cannibalism...as some believe. Cannibalism isn't against the law, at least not in Colorado.
