It was a double fantasy.
-- yes the album Mark David Chapman had John Lennon autograph just hours before he fatally shot the singer is up for sale for a a cool 800000 dollars.
Despite still having NYPD markings on the cover out of regular -- that of the un named owners says quote the -- is the most extraordinary -- and rock and roll history.
It -- Lennon's signature on the cover.
And -- frantically enhance fingerprints on the -- the current owner doesn't want to be named because he's received death threats.
But how can evidence of a crime scene somehow make it into the public -- public's hands.
I think we -- -- who can answer that question but he's not here.
It's not a lot about doctor Michael Baden Barbara -- pretty Z medical examiner -- -- think senator Edward guy's death correspondent I drop my pen.
Okay -- -- doctor okay how.
How long have you been dropping things yeah.
Is that is that -- -- that -- that fact that I'm going to be debts and loads of muscular problems in them really.
I -- drop a lot of things well have you had a good examination by like people doctor know what that was -- one time that was you could that was Holloway.
-- sit -- for weeks a -- talked about how can evidence from a crime scene make its way to public can't I don't get.
Well and murder trials -- in a murder usually the evidence kept by police and apparently NYPD is on that album.
How it got from the police.
To allegedly being found in a waste -- by a janitor yet.
It would have to be checked out because somebody could buy this for you know eight -- 50000 million dollars.
And then if it turns out that was illegally obtained from someplace.
The -- -- not to be very important so having.
Unknown provenance and unknown owner is difficult it is like this here's.
What I don't get the first owner was actually a maintenance guy from the -- the -- the -- the apartment complex where Lennon was killed.
How he would even it he founded but clearly it was owned by Mark David Chapman.
And I am a button and clearly was picked taken by the new York city police department they have there have been able and it added he's seen the the -- -- of the NYPD on it.
Plus they have developed prince of mark Chapman so this is important piece of evidence.
Now if -- everything is over.
The families of the rightful owner can sued to get the news but -- -- back sometimes.
But there's no evidence of that happened here.
I've had you know the problem is when people find things in waste biscuits means that it's abandon anybody can have that that's convenient description but is it true.
Yeah I imagine after the the 9/11 there was a lot artifacts that people claim.
That belonged to other people -- I mean there's stuff floating across you know the you know the Brooklyn.
That people found that probably.
Under 200 years from now will be worth something and it's.
It was just a meaningless facts from that morning that now costs of these you don't have any screech -- that's.
Well EE in this didn't belong to -- Yoko Ono -- -- -- so probably not it would be.
It belonged to mark Chapman he can't make any profit from it by laws and stuff yeah.
But you -- should be given back to him but.
That -- has to be figured out.
By the -- is gonna by this tenacious probe announces legal do you own any weird murder artifacts.
I have owned some -- motive and murder artifacts and they'll collect those anymore used to be what -- you got.
Doctors used to keep things like.
X rays of famous people.
Martin Lou king or Marilyn Monroe remember they did just had -- Marilyn Monroe.
X ray that was sold for a lot of money on you have -- -- clothing.
No really don't know how can we had at least have museum CF we collected things.
We have a museum in medical Examiner's office.
But can't do that anymore because.
In the old days you can keep things even even nothing natural history they would keep you know that the ram is -- eskimos and all.
They had -- be returned back to the eskimo tribes.
If there's one thing I've learned is that if you have these things just call it a museum.
But that doesn't work anymore that there are getting mind.
-- -- -- I wanna find out whether it would happen and I'll miss this what happened to JFK the cart to FK was killed him.
Well -- that's in the Smithsonian look at the gun that -- that will be used to shoot.
Oswald did was up for differ for jail and it's yesterday was the anniversary of kind of but those killings Kennedy yesterday -- Oswalt tomorrow I think.
That gun was claimed by the family after ruby died before going to trial.
The family on court order got the gun and then sold it for about two -- 50000 dollars and -- -- -- murder weapons are are always -- by the police who have melted down -- something.
In that instance because ruby wasn't convicted of murder.
Because before he died and you worked -- this -- this -- case the did we what happened the weapon that we had -- he died -- drug overdose but he had a lot out of it I got other Nancy's Nancy -- -- with a knife.
The police have still -- -- at least.
He died of -- drug overdose and we had the needles and syringes museum in the medical Examiner's office together with some of the spike.
-- spike jewelry he had.
But our allies and museum in those days you keep that stuff and I can't keep -- in what has the right back to the family of.
At your offense -- -- yeah.
All right got to -- that that was great gets another source that this is too fascinating we couldn't get to them.
But maybe next time but I must say who it is gonna be bidding on this been -- Who owns it -- have the owner of bad about that that's what but -- -- probably might not buy it because the moment you buy it someone could see you.
This file or edit -- yet to back you lose money yet made -- well.
And -- I'm not putting my money.
Well Scott I know well dad as eloquent as usual I thought to be always a pleasure have a happy holiday -- it would after.
