"I hope that tonight when I go to bed, I can feel safe in my heart that one less person will be abused," said Robert Hultz, one of Kos' accusers. "That next year, this will not happen again. That throughout the country, this will set the standard for what needs to be done." In a statement from the jury Boris Sabas, 42, allegedly demanded $40 million from Cosby with a threat to tell tabloids that she is his out-of-wedlock daughter. The three are charged with extortion, conspiracy and crossing state lines to commit a crime. Each could face up to 12 years in prison if convicted. Judge Barbara Jones made no immediate ruling on a defense motion to dismiss the case because the federal charges are too vague. Jones has instructed jurors that it is irrelevant whether Cosby is Jackson's father. He says he is not. Robert Baum, Jackson's attorney, on Thursday disclosed that Shawn Upshaw, Jackson's mother, had sold the rights to a 1991 home videotape the defense aired for the jury. The tape shows Cosby joking around with Jackson backstage at The Cosby Show. Baum would not say who the buyer was or how much was paid.

(AP) -Postcards mailed by Andrew Cunanan to one of the men he is accused of murdering carried expressions of "truest love" and "yours" and "love or what you will." The cards were sent to Minneapolis architect David Jon Madson, whose Wisconsin family voiced relief Thursday that a manhunt for the slaying suspect has ended. Cunanan, 27, accused of murdering Madson in Chisago County, Minn., was found dead in Florida, an apparent suicide. Madson's sister Diane Benning owns a book store in Hartland northwest of Milwaukee. She has copies of the postcards that Cunanan mailed to Madson. The FBI has the originals. Some came from the French Riviera, New York, Aspen and Italy, describing lunches, trips to the opera, ski parties in the Rockies and gambling in Monte Carlo. Benning denied her brother had a homosexual relationship with Cunanan.

"They were not a part of his life." He was "not even a part of this triangle," she said, referring to Jeffrey Trail, 28, whose body was found rolled in a carpet April 29 in Madson's Minneapolis apartment. Madson, 33, was found shot to death May 3 at a lake about 30 miles north of Minneapolis. His sister said she is studying the postcards and other bits of Madson's life in search of reasons for the slaying. After the deaths of Trail and Madson, police say Cunanan killed Chicago developer Lee Miglin, New Jersey cemetery caretaker William Reese and fashion designer Gianni Versace. Madson's father Howard wept Thursday outside the family home in Barron in northwestern Wisconsin while discussing the death of Cunanan in Florida where Versace was murdered.

"We're very thankful this manhunt is over." His son was born in 1963 in Waterloo, Iowa, the last of four children. The family has lived in Reeds-burg, Madison, Wausau and Appleton while the senior Madson worked for a department store chain. He eventually opened a hardware store in Barron where his son graduated from high school in 1982. David Madson then attended the University of Minnesota-Duluth. He earned a master's degree at the university in Minneapolis, writing a thesis on a memorial to AIDS sufferers. The family was unaware of his sexual preference until about five years ago, she said. He did not speak of it extensively until Father's Day two years ago when he discussed it with their father, she said. Her father didn't judge. "In front of my dad, he was his son.
