The jury deliberated for eight days before bringing back a not guilty verdict. The judge, when reading the jury's findings, added that had Mrs. Waite not been carrying a hand bag with a dollar sign on it, which was given to her as a novelty gift by her husband, she would not have been shot by the defendant.
The family of the deceased Helen Waite has retained the distinguished attorney Helen Hunt to research possibilities of a possible Federal prosecution as a followup to the local court acquital. In response to journalist's inquiries about such a case being filed, the family quite wisely suggested that anyone with such inquiries should go to Helen Hunt for them.
