Waters' Final Plea
If Waters lives up to his end of the deal and the corpses are recovered, it will bring to an end to one of the longest murder mysteries in modern American history. It will also confirm Waters' savagery. In his effort to steal a half million dollars from the atheists, Waters apparently killed four people: the three atheists and another ex-con, Danny Fry, who was allegedly part of the conspiracy. Law enforcement officials believe Waters and accomplices dismembered the three atheists and buried their bodies in rural West Texas.
Madalyn herself could not have written a more gruesome ending for her life. But it appears she got her wish, or at least part of it. Writing in the American Atheist in November, 1986, O'Hair wrote that she when she died, she "didn't want any damn Christer praying over the body or even putting his hands on it." David Waters is many things. A Christer, he ain't.
