@Evan Hughes Just wanted to let you know that I have not read McGinnis. I heard about the case in 1970, when it happened, as someone who was very counter culture back then I can tell you I thought the MacDonald account was absurd. Then I avoided it for 40 years. After reading Morris' book last week (twice), I went back and read his April 6, 1970 interrogation, the Article 32 hearings, and the trial transcripts (all on line, and not all of it, but a substantial amount). Conclusion: he's guilty as sin, man.
