Was Wayne Hunsacker Hard of Hearing?

Posted: December 21, 2009 in Francke Case
Study these facts from the prosecution case against Frank Gable:
Material witness Cappie "Shorty" Harden said he was sitting in his car across a parking oval from Francke’s car in front of the state Dome Building when he saw Frank Gable get into Francke’s car. Harden testified that he saw a well-dressed businessman run up to the car, shouting, "Hey, what are you doing in my car?"
Police criminalists testified that Gable came out of the car and stabbed Francke twice in rapid succession.
Custodian Wayne Hunsaker testified that he left his job in the basement of the Dome Building at 7 p.m. and was walking away north to his car when he heard a "surprise, hurt" sound. Looking back, he saw two men facing each other who then turned away from one another with one racing off to the west, and the other walking back to the Dome Building.
Police thought that Hunsaker saw Gable confronting Francke. Criminalist James Pex said the "surprise, hurt" sound was the type of sound that could have been caused by the knife puncturing Francke’s lung.
Now answer this question: Why didn’t Hunsaker, who was about the same distance from Francke’s car as Harden, hear Francke’s shout?

    duh……one of them is NOT telling the truth.I know how it is to be on a jury and get so much information all at once and then you have to sort it out.Makes you wonder how smart these jurors were. People that live in a perfect world, don’t understand the criminal world.

    Shorty has admitted he lied about being there. Did Hunsacker lie too, or did he actually see someone other than Michael and his killer? Any guess as to who?
