Oh, brother

Now Martha Jean Lambert‘s brother David, who confessed to killing his sister back in 1985, has joined his mother in denial: his confession, he says, was a lie. David said the cops were anxious to close the case and he only told them what he wanted to hear, and he has no idea what really happened to Martha.

The cops are having none of this, of course. They believe David’s confession, and so do I. Maybe it didn’t happen like he says, but I’m quite sure David caused Martha’s death. If David lied, why did he retract his statement only now, four months after he first made the confession? It can’t be because he was afraid of his mom, because he made the confession on tape in her presence, and at that time she appeared to believe him.

Another article says this isn’t the first time David has said he was responsible for Martha’s death. Back in 2000 he said he buried her in a coquina mine, but the cops couldn’t find anything there. Hmm.

I don’t doubt that David is an attention-seeker. He should stop jerking everyone around.

    I just HATE it when people keep jerking other people around, especially when it comes to something like this. He probably doesn’t want to lose his mother’s love or attention since she is in denial about it. He needs his ass kicked soundly and repeatedly until he gets a permanent attitude adjustment. Some people just don’t learn any other way.

      I looked up David on an online public records database and he’s had a lot of run-ins with the law. He’s served a couple of years in prison for fraud and forgery.

    I feel so sorry for Martha. Don’t any of her family care about her? Poor kid.

      Emma, your sympathy is with the right person and I feel the same way you do…..shouldn’t she be cared about?

    Denial is very strong with some people. The mom may see it as losing her son if she believes he killed Martha.

    I wonder how any one can live with the secret…it would tear me up
