FAIRFAX, Va. (WUSA) "It was ridiculous. It didn't sound anything like the case that I had," said Bob Horan, the former Commonwealth's Attorney who prosecuted sniper Lee Boyd Malvo.
Horan doesn't believe any of the allegations the young sniper makes to William Shatner in a cable tv show.
Malvo tells Shatner in a phone interview from the Red Onion Prison, "There were two other people that were supposed to be involved, but they backed out."
Malvo says "There were supposed to be three to four snipers with silenced weapons, and in this way, you could do a lot more damage along the entire eastern seaboard."
But Horan doesn't buy it. He says Malvo's only accomplice was John Muhammad, who has since been convicted and executed.
Police have linked Malvo and fellow sniper John Muhammad to 22 shooting, 15 of them fatal , across the country. In October of 2002, they are believed to have killed ten people and wounded three more in the Washington region.
Malvo bragged to Shatner that there were 42 shootings across the country.
"We put on evidence of every shooting we found. Florida, Louisiana, Alabama. Maybe there were one or two other shootings we don't know about, but certainly not 20," said Horan.
"Malvo's got nothing to do sitting in Red Onion, except to stir the pot up. He's trying to make himself a bigger killer than he was. And he was plenty big," says Horan.
"They allowed him to say anything and didn't challenge him. Captain Kirk should stick to a script," said Horan.
