The most sensational criminal trial in Southern history that began on July 28, 1913, concluded its testimony portion on August 21, 1913, a few days after Leo Frank made an admission on the witness stand (August 18, 1913) that some say amounted to a virtual murder trial "confession".
On August 18, 1913, Leo Frank mounted the witness stand and revealed the solution to the Mary Phagan murder mystery stating he might have "unconsciously" gone to the bathroom in the metal room (the scene of the crime) to counter Monteen Stover's testimony that he was not in his inner or outer office from 12:05 to 12:10 PM on April 26, 1913. Leo Frank formerly told police he was alone with Mary Phagan between 12:05 p.m. and 12:10 p.m.
While Seated on the Witness Stand, Leo Frank stated to the jury and presiding judge:
Now gentlemen [of the Jury], to the best of my recollection from the time the whistle blew for twelve o’clock [noon on Saturday, April 26, 1913] until after a quarter to one [12:46 p.m.] when I went up stairs and spoke to Arthur White and Harry Denham [at the rear of the fourth floor], to the best of my recollection, I did not stir out of the inner office [at the front of the second floor]; but it is possible that in order to answer a call of nature or to urinate I may have gone to the toilet [in the metal room at the rear of the second floor]. Those are things that a man does unconsciously and cannot tell how many times nor when he does it (Leo Frank Trial Statement, August 18, Brief of Evidence, 1913; Georgia Supreme Court Brief, 1913, 1914).
8 months later, Leo Frank re-confirms he might have been in the metal room bathroom at the time Monteen Stover said his office was empty: See the Atlanta Constitution, Monday, March 9, 1914, Leo Frank Jailhouse Interview (see the link below to Atlanta Constitution for this issue).
More primary and reliable secondary sources on the Mary Phagan and Leo Frank Case include:
The Leo Frank Case, Inside Story of Georgia's Greatest Murder Mystery, 1913 - The first neutral book written about the subject, anonymously published in 1913.
The Murder of Little Mary Phagan by Mary Phagan Kean (Available here on www.Archive.org
). Written by Mary Phagan Kean, the great grand niece of Mary Phagan (1899 - 1913). A neutral account of the events surrounding the trial, appeal, lynching and pardon of Leo Frank. The Murder of Little Mary Phagan is well worth reading and it is a refreshing change from the endless number of Jewish and contemporary books turning the Leo Frank case into a neurotic anti-Gentile race obsessed tabloid controversy.
Leo M. Frank, Plaintiff in Error, vs. the State of Georgia, Defendant in Error. In Error from Fulton Superior Court at the July Term 1913, Brief of Evidence. Extremely rare, only 1 copy exists, and it is at the Georgia State Archive. The trial brief of evidence was ratified by Leo Frank defense, prosecution, and presiding Judge Leonard S. Roan.
Argument of Hugh M. Dorsey in the Trial of Leo Frank Some but not all of the 9 hours of arguments given to the Jury at the end of the Leo Frank trial. Only 18 Libraries in the world have original copies of this books, because there have been efforts to destroy and suppress it. This is an excellent book and required reading for student's of the Frank case, to see how Dorsey convinced the panel of 13 men (the trial jury of 12 men plus Judge Leonard Strickland Roan) to convict Leo Frank.
American State Trials, volume X (1918) by John Lawson Tends to be biased in favor of Leo Frank and his legal defense team, this book provides an abridged version of the Brief of Evidence, leaving out some of the important details and things said at the trial brief of evidence when it republishes parts of the trial testimony. Be sure to read the closing arguments of Luther Zeigler Rosser, Reuben Rose Arnold, Frank Arthur Hooper and Hugh Manson Dorsey. This book also highlights Leo Frank's appeals and provides a detailed account of Leo Frank's lynching in 1915. For a complete version of the Leo M. Frank trial testimony, read the 1913 Leo Frank Trial Brief of Evidence and three Atlanta newspapers (Atlanta Journal, Atlanta Georgian, and Atlanta Constitution) who published the trial testimony July and August 1913.

Watson's analysis of the case is the controversial forbidden fruit of truth that have been censored for more than 100 years.
