Bergstrom also told Raines he would have taken notes and filed reports at DPS about everything he did. But any such notes and reports have yet to turn up, Raines said.
Contacted at his home in Poway, California, Bergstrom says he didn't realize the importance of his testimony until a friend from Phoenix sent him a New Times story on the case.
Bergstrom says that after reading the story, "I remembered the significance of some things. When I went to the prelim, I thought they had a confession or something, and that it was just routine testimony on my part. The story pointed out that the authorities were placing a lot of emphasis on the tissue."
Continues Bergstrom: "I got down to thinking real hard about it, and I came to the conclusion that I had a little bit more information. I realized that my testimony is more important than I thought it was. I know it sounds bad--that, oh, all of a sudden, I remember things--but it's the truth.
