Tim May Stay In Ft Collins

Tim's return to Larimer County has been so celebrated that he may just stay....much to the chagrin of those who convicted him...

Tim Masters no longer has a burning desire to put Fort Collins squarely in his rear-view mirror.

Masters, who on Jan. 22 was released from a life prison sentence after serving almost nine years for murder, had initially planned to leave the city as soon as he could.

Too many bad memories, he said the day before his release.

Fort Collins police pursued Masters as a suspect in the 1987 stabbing death of Peggy Hettrick - he was 15 when she was killed - through high school and the Navy and eventually arrested him in 1998. He was convicted by a jury in 1999 but saw his conviction overturned earlier this month by a judge who agreed DNA evidence pointed to another suspect.

Now, Masters is a free man, although a cloud of suspicion follows him around. Larimer County District Attorney Larry Abrahamson pointedly declined to exonerate Masters when he dropped the murder charge against him.

"I was pessimistic the whole time until the door hit my a- on the way out,"

It is so good to here that Tim Masters is doing so well after this immense injustice done to him. I can't help but believe he has some measure of resentment and possibly some legal retaliation. Tim and his family have been through hell. Did the judicial system give a damn? No. One must wonder if any of the *judicials* care in ANY of Colorado's counties that many innocent Beings are convicted and incarcerated. I find this to be a serious disaster to our liberties. The severity of the lawless *judicials* has gone beyond threat. DISASTER. I must applaud Timothy Masters for maintaining a healthy sense of humor. Bless him and his family.
