Lawrence Scherer confesses to 1991 murder, then tries to un-confess
In response, New Mexico police put out a national missing persons bulletin in Scherer's name -- and last month, they got a hit. Scherer was picked up in Pueblo on a completely unrelated matter, and when the arresting officer ran his name, guess what popped up.
Problem solved? Not quite. Now, the station reports, Scherer denies that he confessed to killing Alderman, or even that he was in Santa Fe during May.
Sounds like he's got a case of confessor's remorse. Look below to see two KBQE packages -- the first when little was known about the arrest, and its more detailed sequel. That's followed by a larger look at his booking photo.
