The West Des Moines Police issued this press release below. Someone committed the murder and certainly it gnaws at your conscience. Just know that after 35 years of practicing law it’s apparent that no one can hold in this secret forever. Sooner or later you will “confide” in someone who will then have to deal with their own conscience. Eventually you will be found out and then it will be worse in many ways. Whoever you are you need to eventually come clean. If you want my help to turn yourself in, in an orderly manner call my office.
