Stayner Used TV Info To Help Cover Up Crimes

A psychiatrist says Yosemite killer Cary Stayner told him voices on the television instructed him to kill.

But on cross examination this morning, Doctor Jose Arturo Silva admitted Stayner never told the FBI that in his confession.

Instead, Stayner told agents that what he learned on TV taught him how to cover up his crimes.

Prosecutors cross-examining Silva Wednesday in a San Jose Courtroom were trying to point out inconsistencies in what Stayner told those who solved the killings of three park tourists and those who delved deeper to try to explain them.

Silva says Stayner thought the end of the world was coming and he had a sense that part of his destiny was to kill.

Stayner´s lawyer says her client was insane when he killed Carole and Juli Sund and Silvina Pelosso in 1999.
