Quebec refuses to return man for fourth murder trial
Senior Assistant Attorney General Janice Rundles said she could not comment because she officially has not been informed of the decision. The extradition case was handled through the U.S. Attorney's Office in Washington, D.C., and she said she has yet to receive a copy of the ruling.
Sisti said the administrative panel ruled against Barnaby, saying he should be extradited, but the Quebec Court of Appeals overturned the decision.
Judge Linda Dalianis, now chief justice of the state Supreme Court, was the presiding judge at the trials more than two decades ago. Sisti said she allowed the attorneys to sit down with the jurors afterward and talk to them about the outcome of the trials. In each case, he said, the jurors said there would never be a conviction because of the lack of evidence.
He said the crime scene was an extremely bloody one, but not a drop of blood was found on Barnaby or his clothing, and no evidence, not even a single hair, linking him to the crime was found at the scene. Sisti said the defense had an FBI expert testify about a hair found there and the agent said it most likely belonged to someone who was Caucasian.
Investigators, in bringing new first-degree murder charges against both Barnaby and Caplin, said DNA testing tied hair found at the scene to Caplin.
At the time of the murders, Barnaby lived downstairs from Ranstrom and Warner at 7 Mason St., Nashua.
"Caplin was never, never Barnaby's friend," Sisti said. "Nobody on the reservation could trust him."
Police immediately questioned Barnaby, who, according to court records, admitted he did not like the women. Investigators said the motive for the murders was that a friend of Barnaby's and Caplin's was arrested for tapping into the women's cable and stealing the service.
Sisti said Barnaby was released from prison and is living in the Montreal area.
