This thing was written by Alan Moore. You can tell that he simply lifted elements from Donati's book in places, although the odd business of blaming Batman for the crime which didn't exsist ( an opinion not everyone would share ) can't be found in any previous account. Although I have written a little on my blog about Roland West's films being linked to the development of Batman before.
Usually I try to write about authors in a more or less impartial way, but as I consider Alan Moore to be one of the more offensive ones, I'll make mention of that.
