Jeff over at Protein Wisdom has a good wrapup of the case.
Although as far as I can remember, I never publicly commented on the case, I owe the Ramseys a mental apology for assuming their guilt. I didn’t give them the benefit of the doubt in my heart. (And no, SBW, this doesn’t mean I’m recanting what I’ve said about OJ; even giving him the benefit of the doubt, I think he’s guilty.) Sorry, Mr. Ramsey. Sorry, Mrs. Ramsey.
Secondly, I think Matt Stone and Trey Parker owe the Ramseys an abject apology. I didn’t give them the benefit of the doubt in my heart; South Park came right out and called them murderers on national TV. Despite the crudity of their work, I think Matt and Trey have a degree of intellectual integrity, and I think the killer’s confession puts an onus on them to apologize for further ravaging the Ramsey’s reputation. I have high hopes.
