The Arizona Republic reports that a state panel will soon consider clemency for 78-year old Max Dunlap who was convicted for the 1976 murder of Arizona Republic reporter Don Bolles. Bolles died 11 days after a bomb exploded beneath his white Datsun (now enshrined in a museum dedicated to journalism) and Dunlap was believed to have hired two men to do "the job." In his clemency application, Dunlap says that he does not expect to live long, that he is "truly sorry" for his involvement with the other suspects in the crime and that he is "sorry for the newspaperman."See story here.
