Back in the early months of 2012, I arranged for formal affidavits on the subject of the strange death in January 1977 of ARIZONA REPUBLIC editor Tom Sanford to be completed by (1) his widow Janet Sanford, recently deceased, (2) his daughter Susan Sanford, (3) former journalist and his close friend Bill Meek, (4) Kathy Kolbe, a close friend of the late Don Bolles and his wife Rosalie, and (5) Claude Johnson, a 1977 crime scene technician of the Maricopa County Shireiff’s Office.
In the interest of full transparency, of making the contents of those affidavits available to all, I now have decided to include them in complete fashion on this website (CLICK LINKS BELOW FOR FULL-SIZE DOCUMENTS).
