A Dallas murder suspect is also a paranoid schizophrenic, and his changing mental state raises questions about whether he can stand trial:
"With medication he becomes someone else entirely, capable even of calm rationality. He would have to be induced into a state of synthetic sanity before he could stand trial for a crime that he allegedly committed while unmedicated.
"For now, though, he was just another uncooperative suspect.
"'We need your help. Are you going to help us?' Thompson's index finger jackhammered the photo. 'Look at him!'
"With his slight build and his short, blond hair, Winder looked hunted, like a boy among men. He looked up at the detectives and murmured, 'I don't remember.'"
