and called authorities.Chandler was convicted of the killings in 1994. At trial,prosecutors used details of an unrelated rape for whichhe was never tried. A womantestified Chandler took herby boat to see the sunset outon the bay and raped her andshe believed the reason shewasn’t killed was because afriend was waiting for her atthe dock. Based on the simi-larities of the cases, prosecu-tors hypothesized that Rogersand her daughters were luredonto the boat with the prom-ise of seeing the sunset andwere then sexually assaultedbefore being murdered.Chandler’s lawyer, BayaHarrison, said his client hastold him to avoid frivolousappeals to keep him alive.“He is not putting a lotof pressure on me to go run-ning around at the end tofind some magic way out,”Harrison said. “He is notgoing to make a scene. He’snot going to bemoan the legalsystem. What he has told meis this: if there is some legalway that I can find to try toprevent him from being exe-cuted, he would like me to dowhat I reasonably can.”Chandler hasn’t admittedhe committed the murders,but is simply tired of life ondeath row, Harrison said.“This is an old man, atired man, a broken man,”Harrison said. “I’m afraidthat there’s simply not manyissues left. I’ve got a coupleof cards I can play, but I’mgoing to get my pleadingsfiled as soon as I can so wedon’t have this last-minuterunning around like chick-ens with our heads cut off because that’s absolutelymiserable for everybody.”Seven months ago,Chandler was offered to beinterviewed for potentialclemency - a standard proce-dure in death cases - and hedeclined, Harrison said.“He didn’t do it in an arro-gant or obnoxious or angryway at all,” Harrison said.“’He knew he was not a seri-ous candidate for clemencyand he didn’t want to takeup their time. He didn’t wantto go through the exercisehimself.”Chandler, who is beingheld at Union CorrectionalInstitution in Union County,also had a previous felonyconviction for armed rob-bery.
Few clues in baby disappearance
KANSAS CITY, Mo.(AP) — Authorities searchingfor a missing baby in KansasCity have marched shoulder-to-shoulder through acres of woods, rappelled down cliffsand combed through land-fills. They’ve interrogatedher parents for hours andcalled in firefighters to searcha 36-foot well that seemedlike a possible place to hide achild’s body.But after receiving morethan 300 tips and chasingdown many others, policestill have no idea what hap-pened to Lisa Irwin, a fair-haired, big-eyed baby, whosefirst birthday is now only amonth away.A full week has passedsince Lisa’s parents, JeremyIrwin and Deborah Bradley,reported their daughter miss-ing. Jeremy returned homefrom a late shift at work Oct.4 and told police he found thehouse lights on, a windowtampered with and his childgone.Police have since searchedthe home with metal detec-tors, and FBI and police re-enacted a possible abduction,all done while camera crewsfilmed from the street.Police spokesman Capt.Steve Young has said policeare pursuing all leads andtaking a no-holds barredapproach to the investiga-tion.“I challenge you to namesomething, and I can assureyou we have done it twice,”Young said early in the inves-tigation. But he has also saidall along that he and otherpolice can’t comment on theinvestigation.Lisa’s parents appearedon television several timesthat first week but have sinceretreated from the media,saying they want to focusall their attention on findingLisa. They declined to com-ment Tuesday. A relative saidfamily members had watchedpart of the well search ontelevision.A private security consul-tant said Wednesday that a“high-asset” family he knowshas hired him to investigatethe baby’s disappearance.Bill Stanton, of New York,said he would be working onthe case for an undeterminedamount of time and that he’s“hopeful this child is safe andalive.” He would not identifywho hired him but says it wasnot the child’s family.A spokesman for thebaby’s family said Stantonwould be handling mediaquestions, but did not com-ment on Stanton’s role, if any, in the investigation.Corn: $6.41Wheat: $6.21Beans: $11.79
