MACDONALD, JEFFREY: Great Crimes & Trials TV - The Guardian online - The Accused, Jeffrey McDonald: People Magazine Investigates TV -
Early in the morning of 7th February 1970 the military police hurried to the house of Captain Jeffrey MacDonald, a green beret doctor. Great Crimes & Trials s1e9: The Green Beret Killings, BBC 1993
He told of waking up to find that four hippies had broken into the house. There were three men and a blonde woman in a floppy hat. ibid.
The story the blood told was different from his. ibid.
In October the army inquiry dismissed the charges against Captain MacDonald for lack of evidence. ibid.
The Supreme Court disagreed and in July 1979, nine years after the killings, Jeffrey MacDonald stood trial. ibid.
The sentence was the maximum: three consecutive life terms. ibid.
On 31st March 1982 the Supreme Court finally ruled that Jeffrey MacDonald’s constitution rights had not been violated. ibid.
At some time before 3.30 a.m. someone brutally attacked the MacDonald family in their home at 544 Castle Drive on what was then the open military base of Fort Bragg. MacDonald’s 26-year-old pregnant wife, Colette, had both her arms broken and was stabbed repeatedly in the chest and neck with a paring knife and an ice-pick. The couple’s five-year-old daughter Kimberley was beaten across the head with a club and stabbed multiple times in the neck. Two-year-old Kristen was stabbed over 30 times in the back, chest and neck with a knife and an ice-pick. MacDonald himself received relatively minor injuries except for a single stab wound that punctured his lung.
At around 3.30 a.m. MacDonald called the emergency services, while apparently drifting in and out of consciousness. He told the first military police to arrive that his family had been attacked by four intruders – two white men, a black man and a white woman. He said the woman held a candle and chanted ‘Acid is groovy’ and ‘Kill the pigs’. On the headboard in the marital bedroom the word ‘PIG’ was written in blood. The Guardian online article 14th April 2013 Andrew Anthony ‘The Fort Bragg murders: Is Jeffrey Macdonald innocent?’

The prosecution had made a big deal out of the fact that they thought the crime scene was staged. ibid.
