July 7 - August 13, 1987: Jeffrey MacDonald vs. Joe McGinniss
August 5, 1987: Testimony of Cynthia Crossen
Subject. I recall a later one, specifically in February of 1982, when my husband and I went to Williamstown where they were living. I recall that one because my husband is a pilot and he flew us up there and we had quite a bit of problems finding the Williamstown Airport.
At that time I asked Joe, as I did just about every time I saw him, what his conclusions were. And he obstinately refused to say, he simply would not say.
Q Did he say anything?
A He would talk about the case. He would talk about what he had learned. He would talk about some of the people involved in it. He would talk about what the progress of accumulating information and if he had just had an interview with someone who had helped him with the book, but he was conscientiously and consciously close-mouthed about his conclusions.
Q You mentioned a few minutes ago that every you saw him you asked him what his conclusions were.
Q Do you recall any of his responses over that period of time?
A As the time progressed from the first few times where I thought there was a much more emotional component to it, it was simply that he wouldn't say. It was almost as though a person said to me, "No comment. I just won't say."
