This analysis of the Dana Chandler case is spot on.  You mentioned that there is no receipt showing that Dana Chandler purchased anything in Wakeeney, Kansas. Yet, inferences were made throughout the trial that I believe gave the jurors the false impression that there was some sort of evidence in the form of a receipt that placed Dana Chandler halfway between her home in Denver and the scene of the double homicide in Topeka, Kansas. Then, in the 11th hour, during closing arguments, the lead prosecutor Jacqie Spradling gave the following “clarification” which was ostensibly meant to clear up any confusion or misconception:  FINAL CLOSING ARGUMENT BY THE STATE: MS. SPRADLING: “First, let me tell you the good news, not going to take a full hour. Second of all, let me correct a mistake I made, please. My slight error said that the authorities thought that the defendant had gone to Wakeeney and purchased a book with a stolen credit card of hers. I want to clear that up.” – Eileen Umbehr
