    Tom-No, Many modern books and articles about the Leo Frank case written after 1990 cite Mary Phagan Kean in their bibliography / references section. CNN interviews Mary Phagan Kean. The documentary People v. Leo Frank interviews Mary Phagan Kean. Numerous articles about Leo Frank case written after 2000 interview or cite Mary Phagan Kean. Augusta Chronicle-Herald, May 15, 1983, statement by Justice Randall Evans Jr.: "The suggestion that a governor or Board of Pardons and Paroles may pardon a deceased person is completely ridiculous. The Constitution of Georgia provides that 'the legislative, judicial, and executive powers shall forever remain separate and distinct.' The executive department has no power whatever to reverse, change, or wipe out a decision by the courts, albeit while the prisoner is in life he may be pardoned. But a deceased party can not be a party to legal proceedings (Eubank v. Barber, 115 Ga. App. 217-18). If Leo Frank were still in life, he could apply for pardon, but after death neither he nor any other person may apply for him. As the Supreme Court of Georgia held in Grubb v. Bullock, Governor, 44 Ga. 379: 'It (pardon) must be granted the principal upon his application, or be evidenced by ratification of the application by his acceptance of it (the pardon).' Leo Frank's case was finally terminated absolutely against him by the Supreme Court of Georgia on June 6, 1914. He lived thereafter until August 16, 1915, and never did apply for pardon. It is too late now for any consideration to be given a pardon for Leo Frank. Pardon can only be granted to a person in life, not to a dead person. To illustrate the folly of such proceedings, could someone at this late date apply for a divorce on behalf of Leo Frank? The blood of a little girl cries out from the ground for justice. I pray the sun will never rise to shine upon that day in Georgia when we shall have so blinded ourselves to the records, to the evidence, to the judgments of the court, and the judgment of the people, as to rub out, change, and reverse the judgment of the courts that has stood for seventy years! God forbid!" Obviously there are many prominent people who support the guilt of Leo Frank, the consensus of researchers is that Leo Frank's guilt or innocence is divided. GingerBreadHarlot (talk) 01:44, 30 June 2015 (UTC) leofrank.info looks self-published. I see no reason the other sources ought not to be considered reliable. Looking at the talk page, it looks like both sides of this argument have gone astray in trying to argue their sources are the right ones, instead of collaborating on wording that reflects the full range of views in reliable publications.
