’Candy Man’ poisoner
to die on Halloween
United Press International
HOUSTON — The lawyer
who originally defended "Can
dy Man” killer Ronald Clark
O’Bryan on charges he poisoned
his son with Halloween candy
maintains O’Bryan is innocent
of the killing and could prove it
through a lie detector test.
O’Bryan faces execution Hal
loween night — eight years af ter
his son’s death. The inmate’s re
quest for a stay of execution is
pending with the 5th U.S. Cir
cuit Court of Appeals in New
“He didn’t do it,” said attor
ney Richard E. Harrison of Dal
las. “I suggested before the trial
he he given a lie detector test,
but they wouldn’t.”
Harrison said police in the
Houston suburb of Pasadena re
fused to give O’Bryan a lie detec
tor test in 1974 after he was
arrested and charged with sub
stituting cyanide crystals for
powdery candy in the “Giant
Pixie Stix” given to Timothy
Marc O’Bryan, 8.
The boy died of cyanide
poisoning an hour after eating
the substance in his father’s pre
sence. Four other children
found with the poisoned candy
did not eat it.
O’Bryan, 38, has maintained
his innocence. Taunted by fel
low death row inmates as the
“Candy Man”, O’Bryan is sche
duled to die by injection at 12:01
Prosecutors claimed O’Bryan
killed his son to collect on a
$20,()()() insurance policy.
Harrison said public pressure
on the Pasadena police to find a
culprit caused them to choose
O’Bryan and fit the evidence to
“The real killer was never
found," he said. "He (O’Bryan)
was at the center of national
attention. They (the police)
made bin 1 make statements dur
ing the investigation that he was
not sure of. They confused him.
And people around him were
convinced he was guilty,”
