Waterloo, Ill (KSDK) -- A computer forensics expert is expected to testify at the Chris Coleman murder trial on Friday. <snipped>

From this twitter site:

http://www.chathousenews.com/2011/04/live-coleman-trial-updates.html



defense points out 3 corrections in CSI reports over time. Prosecutors point out they were all misspellings of boy's name.

Obviously the defense is trying to argue that everyone makes misspellings here and there, but the prosecution wisely pointed out that it's much more common to misspell a person's name (particularly when you don't really know them) than it is to misspell a common word like "opportunities," particularly in this day and age with spell-check, FCS! Garrett, for example, could be spelled with one or two t's or r's, but "opportunities" only has one correct spelling!

Bet Chris is wishing he would've known what that squiggly red line meant under all of his words before he hit "send!" :loser:

04-29-2011, 12:00 PM
the wording of the threat letters with the mis spelling of common words to me is one of the most damning pieces of evidence against cc...
1. Could someone hack into his computer? Sure-unlikely, but possible
2. Would the hacker really know to check out his documents so he could misspell the same words like CC did? Very very unlikely...

Hiya All,

Brian, you are so right. It would take a very clever hacker to study the misspellings of someone, how they use "U" and "CAPS" at the end of a sentence and oddball contractions, and then to mimic those things in threatening letters and then on walls i.e. to setup Chris as the murderer. But wait, wasn't it Chris trying to setup a Phantom murderer?

ynotdivein
04-29-2011, 01:32 PM
The flurry of tweets continues. Info that CC asked the ministry if they would be able to see "sexual texts his wife was sending" and that the ministry shortly thereafter discovered his ties with TL.

One of Sheri's friends saved a text Sheri sent her, informing her that CC said Sheri and the kids were getting in the way of his job.

The judge struck the witness's testimony that Sheri told her CC beat her.

04-29-2011, 01:59 PM
This case is so very sad. As a married women myself with two boys this case is frightening and this TL woman is evil to the core just as much as CC and I am not convince that she didn't ask him to get rid of his family. The evil one has to have in their core to sleep with a friend's husband who has two beautiful babies and not think of how disgusting that is, I don't care if he wasn't sleeping with his wife. HIS WIFE is YOUR FRIENd and doesn't know that YOU are the cause for her MARRIAGE failing.

What a disgusting person. For CC he and that church are all evil people evil cold and evil.

I am so mad.

ynotdivein
04-29-2011, 02:21 PM
As minimal as the text info is today, I was glad to hear that there was apparently evidence on both CC's arms. The way I remember back in the way-back machine right after this happened, it was reported that he had a scratch on one arm, which he initially told a witness (maybe an EMT?) he didn't remember how he got, but which he later told his father he got while punching a gurney.

Scratches on one arm and red marks on the other. That "gurney" apparently fought back.

Brian, I'm with you in hoping there was recoverable DNA under the victims' nails. But would we have already heard about that? It seems the prosecution put the ME and Baden on the stand early and are now on to motive, so how much more might we hear about the results from the crime scene?

Cincotta testified that she was in charge of cell phones for Joyce Meyer Ministries and got an e-mail from Chris Coleman in mid-December 2008. That is when he started having sex with Lintz, she testified Thursday.

Coleman told Cincotta his wife sent him an explicit picture and he wanted to make sure the computer techs at the ministries would not be able to see it. She checked and told him they couldn't.

Then she heard from Sheri Coleman about her marital problems. She got suspicious about the cell phone traffic and pulled the records for Chris Coleman's ministry phone. She found all the calls to Lintz.

She took the info to Danny Meyer, the televangelist's son and an executive with the ministries. She said the affair would have cost Chris Coleman his job and another ministries employee had been fired for an affair. She said a divorce would not have caused him to be fired.

Chris Coleman's police interrogation video was shown to jurors earlier this week and included his statement that Danny Meyer confronted him about the calls from Lintz and told him to keep his personal life private. At that point Coleman said he got a personal cell phone.

She said Chris Coleman beat her in the summer of 2008, she went to his boss, televangelist Meyer, about it and she ordered them into couples counseling if Chris Coleman wanted to keep his job.

"Another friend of Sheri's, Stephanie Jones, saved the text messages she received from Sheri on December 27, 2008. Sheri's text said, "Chris wants a divorce. He said me and my kids are in the way of his job." "

"Vanessa Riegeris, a neighbor of the Coleman's, testified that in the fall of 2008, Chris told her that he was thinking divorcing Sheri after the holidays"

hopefully there is CC's skin/dna under some one's fingernails-that would probably do it...

I hope so - is there a possibility that the prosecution is waiting until the end to present this evidence? It would make more sense to present it at the time the scratches were shown. But maybe they want to wait so it will be fresh in the jurors minds?

IDK - just wondering about it. He was scratched - unless he got those while getting rid of evidence, there has to be dna under someone's nails.

So... if we are to believe that there is no "divorce and you lose your job policy", which at this point I feel there probably was at that point in time and JMM went into CYA mode... but there is a "have an illicit affair with your wife's bff policy"... and JMM knew about the affair... why wasn't Chris fired? It's contradictory IMO.

I think the prosecutions strategy was to open the trial with the shocking photos of the crime scene, move onto motive (TL and all the lewd photos videos for added disgust & shock value) and the witnesses about the state of the marriage and then come back to finish it up with forensics. Other than Baden's TOD, we haven't heard any forensics yet.

I agree Stella! I've seen people get fired in the secular, for-profit world for sending sexually-explicit content over a company network, cell phone or Blackberry device!!! And for CC to lie that Sheri was sending explicit emails to his phone just enrages me. And it seems the ministry turned a blind eye to this affair!

I still have an issue that Wharton allowed this. It's like she conveniently scheduled this conference, because the next one isn't until July!

Just for clarity though, both sides got to question Joyce in the taped deposition. A deposition with your lawyers present are very similar to a court room appearance, you just don't have the judge & jury. They both get to ask questions, object to questions, and basically duke out what you will or will not answer.

"Chris told her that he was leaving her when she got back from Florida," said Kathy LaPlante, Sheri's friend and Joyce Meyer Ministries employee. "He told her that he hated her, never loved her. She said Chris just exploded on the phone. She told him that she would never leave him. She said to him, `What are you going to do? Kill me?'"

Sheri Coleman changed her name on her Facebook account and changed her status from married to single.

"She told me that there was a crazy lady wouldn't leave her alone," said Stefanie Jones, Sheri Coleman's friend. Sheri Coleman told Jones about Lintz, too.

The Colemans' neighbor, Vanessa Riegerix, said Chris Coleman told her he
wanted a divorce and expressed unhappiness with their sex life and his wife's
spending habits. Garett Coleman was supposed to spend the night with
Riegerix's son the night of the murders, but Riegerix said Chris Coleman
declined, saying, "It wasn't a good night."

I've found two things in regards to this... obviously they collected samples from Chris. We have yet to hear what those samples turned up in testing. I still think some of the biggest bombs are coming Monday & Tuesday before the prosecution rests. We haven't heard any of the forensics, other than TOD... and we haven't heard of all the evidence that was reportedly collected along the highway to the gym.

"Illinois State Police crime scene technician **** Keller testified Friday about collected evidence from Coleman's body as he was interrogated, including taking photos of scratches on his right forearm.
Defense attorney Stern asked whether Coleman was cooperative. Keller said he was."

Exactly what I'd like to know. Obviously he wasn't really physically ill. But for someone who almost never took time off from work, how convenient the "real killer" chose that particular night to kill his family.

They never had it analyzed or what is going on? I hope and pray that every detail is covered. There needs to be justice done for those precious kids

Additionally, the recorded testimony is one-way. No room for cross. Could the court demand she take the stand?

I am surprised about this too. This trial had been coming for how long and JMM couldn't alter her schedule?

So with this:

That testimony was from the Crime Scene tech. The only thing they do is collect the evidence, so of course they couldn't conclusively testify whether or not it implicated Chris. We've yet to hear what the Crime Lab found on the swabs from those wounds... or if there is DNA under any of the victims fingernails.

We also have LE & Crime Scene techs saying the boys bodies were cold to the touch. If they've only been dead an hour, they wouldn't already be cold. Not to mention rigor mortis & livor mortis setting in.

Definitely not, since they were inside a controlled environment (occupied house where presumably the a/c wasn't set low) and in bed.

Paul also testified that as Chris and his father were discussing calling Sheri’s family to inform them of the deaths, Coleman asked his father to call “Sheri’s best friend, Terri, in Florida.” He says Coleman got the her number from his phone and gave it to his father. The name Paul heard as Terri, was actually Coleman’s alleged mistress Tara Lintz.

I can't stop thinking about whether TL knew that Chris was going to murder Sheri, Garett and Gavin. Why have his Father call her? When I read she wore his "promise" ring to court and her testimony seemed so emotionless? Her best friend and her two children were murdered, not even a tear?


Joyce Meyer testified that she has known Chris since he was ‘little boy’ and hired him in 1998. She said he had worked his way up to become her personal security guard and was being paid $100,000 a year.

Here's the reason he was not fired for the affair. JM's son knew about TL and did not tell JM? I call Bumpkus on that one. They all knew, but he was given a pass. I also think Chris's family knew about the affair. I've really tried to hold my tongue as far as JMM is concerned. I've seen her televised services and well ...

More info for you... You have to call the Court Clerk in Monroe County and ask her to put you on a list for the day you want to attend. Then she calls you the night before if you're chosen to get a seat. The number of spectator seats is extremely limited and the number of people who want them are about 5 people for every seat. Good luck!
