Sniper says 2 others backed out of attacks

By Washington Post editors

A man convicted in the deadly sniper attacks that terrorized the Washington, D.C., area in 2002 says two others planned to participate in the attacks but backed out.

The revelation comes in a prison interview with Lee Boyd Malvo for the Thursday premier of “Confessions of the DC Sniper with William Shatner: An Aftermath Special” on the A&E television network.

During the interview, Malvo's forensic psychiatrist says Malvo also confessed to 42 shootings during the three-week shooting spree that left 10 dead in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.

Previously, Malvo and John Allen Muhammad had been linked to as many as 27 shootings resulting in 17 deaths.

Malvo is being held in a southwest Virginia prison. Muhammad was executed in Virginia last year.

The other 2 need to be tracked down, arrested and tried for murder.

These other 2 knew who was killing our citizens and did nothing to stop it.

WHY AREN'T THESE OTHER 2 BEHIND BARS???

to answer Frishoo's question about why the other two are not behind bars;

its because virginia put to death John Allen Muhammad.

so instead of him sitting there rotting in jail and still being around to question and give testimony, he is in a grave and other guilty parties remain free.
