The following newspaper articles regarding the Victor Licata murder case accompanied John Kaplan’s material deposited in the Robert Crown Law Library at Stanford in a box marked “Miscellaneous Material On Marijuana” HV5822.M3 M57 V.8 l LAW BASEMENT. Only one newspaper reference request, an August 15 Tampa Times reply letter,was deposited to help explain the source of Kaplan’s bad citations. The list provided below is what Kaplan received as references attached to the copies. I did not find a copy of “Order Commits Slayer Licata” cited by Kaplan as reference number 13?
