Continued from page I
ously unreleased document, was an
incomplete story that Department of
Public Safety officers discovered in
Baker's East Quad dorm room.
FBI Special Agent Greg Stejskal,
the only witness to testify at the Fri-
day hearings, said the incomplete story
named the same female University
student and posed a further threat to
her safety.
"The story involves Mr. Baker
abducting the female student at gun-
point and taking her to a secluded
place off of Route 23 in Ann Arbor,"
Stejskal said. "He tells her to disrobe,
to take a toolbox from his car and then
uses the tools to torture her."
Baker, in his unfinished story,
describes the abduction in detail.
"I plan it well," Baker wrote. "It
will be my first kidnapping; my first
real rape of a pretty young girl. My
first experimentation with all the de-
vices of pain I had thought up before.
I obsessed about my target more than
any other girl on campus."
Baker's mother, Vilma Baker, said
she was shocked after watching her
son handcuffed and taken out of the
courtroom by U.S. marshals.
"The judge must have woken up
this morning and thought that he was
a psychiatrist," said Mrs. Baker, a
creative writing teacher in Ohio.
"While his writing is alarming and I
don't particularly like my son's genre;
then again I don't like Stephen King
or sitcoms. It was just fantasy."
But Chadwell said Baker's stories
went beyond being creative.
"He takes delight in thinking about
what horrible things he can do to
women," Chadwell said. "He was talk-
ing about getting together with Gonda.
It is not just fantasy anymore; there
are real people involved.
"There is a natural progression in
these cases," Chadwell said. "He was
actually talking about taking action in
things he could do to women. He
writes in a message to Gonda that

'just thinking about it anymore doesn't
do the trick. I need to DO IT."'
Mullkoff said writing such litera-
ture is not reason to prosecute.
"The idea that anyone who writes
what is found to be distasteful is dan-
gerous is false," he said. "He has no
criminal record, has no history of
violence or aggressive behavior. He
is not dangerous."
Chadwell points to Baker's e-mail
messages as a key factor in the case,
while the defense says that the mes-
sages sent to Ontario were merely
part of the fantasy Baker had created.
The letters themselves sent mixed
messages. "Sometimes, I'll see apretty
one alone in the quad and think 'Go
on Jake, it'd be easy.' But the fear of
getting caught always stays my hand,"
Baker wrote to Gonda on Dec. 9.
"Sorry, can't come up with an
ending to that Asian story yet. I will
soon though, hang in there."
Psychiatric evaluations that
Mullkoff presented to the court do not
portray Baker as a dangerous man, but
Friedman found evidence in the state-
ments that led him to his decision.
"The evaluations may say that he
is not a danger, but they do say that he
will continue to get into trouble with
authorities," Friedman said. "They
also say that he shows a minimal
capacity to delay impulses."
Chadwell said he is seeking a grand
jury indictment prior to Friday's pre-
trial hearing. Mullkoff said he will
appeal the detention ruling to the 6th
Circuit Court in Cincinnati this week.
Federal authorities learned of
Baker's activity after DPS notified
them in late January. The University
became aware of the stories on the
Internet after a 16-year-old Moscow
girl told her father about discovering
the stories in "alt.sex.stories." The girl's
father told his friend, aUniversity alum,
about the stories and he later sent them
to the University for review.
The FBI is continuing its investi-
gation. The Ontario Provincial Police
are searching for Gonda and investi-
gating his connection to the case.

Jurors tour Brown Simpson condo
LOS ANGELES - 0.J. Simpson sat in a police car
yesterday, while a block away jurors in his murder trial
toured the Brentwood murder scene.
Simpson had decided against visiting his slain ex-
wife's condominium, but he accompanied jurors, the
judge and an entourage of police and attorneys as they
visited other key sites in the case. He reportedly wore a
belt that would deliver a disabling jolt of electricity if he
tried to escape or acted up.
Eight months to the day after the murders of Nicole Simp°n
Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, Superior Court
Judge Lance Ito convened an unusual Sunday session for the tour.
Traveling in a motorcade of presidential proportions, jurors arrived at the
scene. They stepped out of their bus with smoked-glass windows and were
escorted in groups of four in and around Ms. Simpson's condominium.
Jurors took copious notes of their observations where the slashed, crumpled
bodies of Ms. Simpson and Ronald Goldman were found in pools of blood.

China holds out on
non-nuclear treaty
WASHINGTON - The Clinton
administration, trying to bolster its
campaign to prevent the spread of
nuclear arms, hopes to persuade the
four other nuclear powers to end pro-
duction of a key weapons component.
A senior administration official
said Russia, Britain and France have
agreed to join the United States in
announcing that they will no longer
produce weapons-grade plutonium
and uranium. The announcement is to
come before the April 17 start of an
international conference to renew the
25-year-old Nuclear Non-Prolifera-
tion Treaty.
But China has not yet agreed to go
Such an agreement would have
little practical effect because there is
a substantial surplus of recyclable
material that can provide weapons
fuel. But U.S. officials believe that it
could have a huge symbolic impact.
A hard-core group of 20 or so

countries, including Nigeria, Indone-
sia, Mexico and Egypt, are against
making the pact permanent, although
U.S officials say most of them ap-
pear willing to approve an extension
for a set period of years.
12,600 gallons of oil
spill near New Jersey*
NEW YORK - About 12,600
gallons of oil leaked from'a ruptured
tanker off the New Jersey coast but
didn't threaten nearby beaches, offi-
cials said Saturday.
Workers drained thousands of gal-
lons of the diesel fuel oil from a dam-
aged cargo hold to a barge, stopping
the leak.
By Saturday afternoon, theO
Mormac Star was heading for deeper
water, where divers would try to patch
the punctured hull.
The ship, carrying 135,000 bar-
rels of diesel fuel oil and 112,000
barrels of jet fuel, ran aground about
two miles east of Sandy Hook, N.J.,
Friday night, while en route to New
York from the Virgin Islands.
