Yet details of how Gardner was tied to the murder of 17-year-old Chelsea and how he abducted another murder victim — 14-year-old Amber Dubois of Escondido — may remain unanswered until after Gardner’s June 1 sentencing, if not longer.

Deputy District Attorney Kristen Spieler said outside the courtroom that her office would honor a request from both families to keep silent about the case — and ask other law enforcement officials to do the same.

Moments after San Diego Judge David Danielsen lifted the gag order Thursday, San Diego County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Jan Caldwell said Sheriff Bill Gore would stay silent about the case.

Also on Tuesday, the medical examiner's office announced that it would not release its reports on the murders of King and Dubois.

NBCSanDiego and other local media outlets asked for copies of the report, which contain the findings of the investigations, a summary of the autopsies and toxicology reports. Those documents are routinely available to any member of the public.

NBCSanDiego will appeal the medical examiner's decision.

I'm glad the medical examiner's office is doing the right thing here. Let the families have some peace.
