More details on Shannon Fischer murder case

This is three weeks old but I just found it: it has come out that Michael Burroughs, the man who confessed to murdering Shannon Fischer, was paranoid and thought he was being poisoned at the time he made his confession. They’re going to investigate his competency, but he might use the insanity defense.

Whatever Burroughs’s current mental state, no one is disputing the facts of the case, that he strangled Shannon and disposed of her body. He is facing charges of first-degree reckless homicide and hiding a corpse.

    Gee, what a surprise. Recant much? I had a feeling this was coming down the pike. He wanted to clear his conscience (sp, sorry) but not take any responsibility. Grow up, dude. They should just shoot him. Save the taxpayers time and money while he dorks around for the next decade or two being “paranoid”.

    Is it him that recants or his attorney??? either way, he’ll go to hell.

      He’s not recanting, he just claims to be crazy.

    I should have said “change mind much?” Prison isn’t always the Holiday Inn.
