NEW DEVELOPMENTS TONIGHT IN THE BEATING DEATH OF A
WORLD WAR TWO VETERAN.
TODAY, A JUDGE ORDERED THE RELEASE OF A VIDEOTAPED
INTERVIEW WITH A WOMAN WHO FOUND SHORTY BELTON, AND
SAW THE TWO SUSPECTS IN HIS MURDER RUNNING FROM THE
BELTON DIED LAST AUGUST.
THE VICTIM OF A BOTCHED ROBBERY AT THE EAGLE'S LODGE
IN NORTH SPOKANE.
THOSE TEENS ARE AWAITING TRIAL.
ONE OF THEM ALLEGED THEY WERE BUYING CRACK FROM THE
89-YEAR OLD VETERAN.
TONIGHT FOR THE FIRST TIME, WE'RE HEARING FROM THAT
WOMAN ABOUT THE DRUG ALLEGATION.
Natalie Flom: It's hilarious.
And, I think he's got a very good sense of humor,
so I know he's laughing right now.
And, it's horrible, too.
It's bad enough they did what they did to him.
Now, they're trying to disgrace his name and reputation.
He's been a very decent person in his life.
He really has.
FLOM SAYS SHE NEVER HEARD SHORTY TALK ABOUT DRUGS.
