THE LATEST news in the Terry Bowers unsolved murder case came from the other side of the country.
The release in October of the Boy Scouts' secret "perversion files" was ordered by the Oregon Supreme Court, following a civil suit that the Scouts lost.
The 14,500 pages of previously confidential records include correspondence about known and suspected pedophiles within the organization from 1959 to 1985. They show that the Scouts were successful in keeping many of them out of leadership positions. But in many cases, pedophiles were also shielded from prosecution because police were not informed of the abuse.
