I have Fuhrman’s Death and Justice but I haven’t cracked it yet. You know, of course, that I am not surprised to hear about his movie reference. I don’t think he could resist getting a tombstone in their somewhere. If you look in the first Smoking Gun, Chapter 17: More Time Travel (in the paragraph about Back to the Future III with the picture of the tombstone) you’ll see why.
The way I tested my guesses that Fuhrman got specific ideas about the clues he left behind as the killer and the notes he took as a detective was by following a line of reasoning that took me to those movies. Working on a time trave theme, I was looking for a pizza link as well as a link to the “Mother’s” poem I believed he propped up in the corner of the killing cage to resemble a tombstone. I found all of them in Back to the Future III, which was set in the 1800s – around the time of Wyatt Earp’s shootout with the Clanton gang at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona. In Fuhrmanese, pizzas and tombstones are often synonymous.
You won’t necessarily find an abundance of links to Fuhrman in the move Tombstone (I found the Lord of the Flies reference he used by way of Martha Moxley's ghost in Murder in Greenwich in Masque of the Red Death and the Hotel New Hampshire). But you will find other strong movie connections like names, phases and actions that involve Fuhrman personally and exclusively when you combine them.
Furman’s “admission” that he “might have gotten sloppy and made some serious mistakes” with Macy as his DA grabbed my attention not only because he DID have a DA (and assistant DA’s) like Macy but because of what he says next. He sys, “That’s the risk when everybody thinks the same way, and no one is willing to rock the boat.”
A case can be made that Fuhrman handpicked the lead prosecutor in the Bundy murder investigation and did more than anyone to make sure everyone thought the same way and no one was willing to rock the boat. –Jasper
