There had been other suspects, and even a number of false confessions, but this time was different: This suspect seemed to know undisclosed details of the crime scene. The Ramseys – who for many years had lived with widespread public perception that they might have been involved in or knew more than they were saying about the crime – left the meeting with Lacy feeling hopeful.
