Media Coverage
The links below are to articles published in the Tacoma Reporter, a free weekly newspaper that is no longer published in Tacoma.  These articles were not available online. Long-time reporter Frank Driscoll covered the trial.  Frank believed in Brian's innocence, but he has not been heard from since the Tacoma Reporter went out of business.  

The News Tribune, the daily newspaper in the south Puget Sound area, had more detailed daily coverage of the Eggleston case, as well as photos.  However, they did not given permission to publish their articles or photos on this site.  

The Seattle/Tacoma television stations provided some coverage of this case, although minimally during the third trial and not in depth.
