New thread for a new day. Please remember the rules

:tos:


When posting an opinion please remember to use IMO or JMO.


the crown will present its case in chapters:

Chapter 1: The day of the kidnapping. The surveillance video showing Rafferty driving up the street outside Tori's school and McClintic walking Tori up the street. Witnesses from and around Oliver Stephens public school will talk about seeing Tori.
An identification officer will use photographs and maps to show the route from Woodstock to Guelph.
Tori's mother, Tara McDonald, will testify about the frantic hours the family spent looking for Tori.

Chapter 2: Terri-Lynne McClintic. "She was an essential part of all that happened," Gowdey said. "I expect her credibility will be a major issue in this case."

Chapter 3: Guelph -- video surveillance and bank records detailing the events there.

Chapter 4: the Mount Forest death scene, which the jury will visit. "It will be difficult to go to the very place where this happened, I know that, but understanding the crime scene is crucial to understanding the crime," Gowdey said. Photographs, some of them graphic, will be used to explain "exactly how the killing happened."
"Unfortunately it is only through them that you can fully understand (the) evidence," Gowdey said.

Chapter 5: Police interaction with Rafferty.

Chapter 6: The searches of Rafferty and McClintic's residences and the evidence found.

Chapter 7: The Honda Civic. What was found inside.

Chapter 8: Rafferty's connection to the Mount Forest area.

Chapter 9: Comments Rafferty made to friends after April 8. "He had some interesting things to say to other people about Terri-Lynne McClintic and about the kidnapping itself," Gowdey said.

Chapter 10: The May 15 weekend and Rafferty's actions.

Chapter 11: The BlackBerry. The BlackBerry allowed police to track his movements April 8 and after.

Chapter 12: A recap of the surveillance video.

Salem's warning from last week:
Okay everybody - LISTEN UP! We are not bashing, accusing or blaming Tori's family here. It won't be allowed.
Children walk home from school every day without incident. Parents are not perfect, it's just not possible. Tori's parents DID NOT do this to her. TLM and an accomplice DID. That is where the blame goes.
We had a lot of family bashing in the early parts of this investigation after Tori went missing and a lot of baseless accusations - NONE OF WHICH PROVED TO BE TRUE. Victim and family bashing will not be allowed during this trial.
Thank you,
Salem

Christie Blatchford: Michael Rafferty’s rather quick recovery from witnessing horrifying Tori Stafford murder

LONDON, Ont. — For a fellow who was purportedly “horrified” when Terri-Lynne McClintic first abducted and then abruptly killed a little Woodstock, Ont., girl in the spring of 2009, Michael Rafferty appears to have pulled himself together rather quickly.

Indeed, Mr. Rafferty did what any man who had just watched a shocking child murder might do: He went onto a dating website called Plenty of Fish and proceeded to become involved with no fewer than two women.

The suggestion that Mr. Rafferty, now 31, was aghast when McClintic purportedly killed the eight-year-old came from his lawyer, Dirk Derstine, during his cross-examination of McClintic last month.

Another quote from above link:

“I’m going to suggest to you that Mr. Rafferty came back [to the car] after the death, was horrified, but helped you clean up. You can agree or disagree with that,” Mr. Derstine told McClintic, who vehemently disagreed.


Proof that the defence put his client at the crime scene. Direct quote from Mr. Derstine himself.

Good point. I hadn't even noticed that until you pointed it out. hmmmmm

I wonder if there was something that the defense objected to when they had that "legal issues" day?

It's too bad if they skip over it because this would've added another big piece to their case and nail to his coffin.

That could be, the Crown didn't know that the defence was going to admitt that MTR was at the crime sceme until after opening statements.

I still hope they don't skip it, I was wondering if it could provide some answers about where TLM and MTR between when they left the crime scene and when they got back to Woodstock.

Well if his only "connection" is that he lived in Drayton during his preteen years then I would skip it because that's stretching it. But to devote an entire chapter to it, I would hope there is a lot more info...like jobs held etc. And it is important to establish that TLM did not "direct" MR to the rural property but rather MR drove directly to it out of Guelph and knew where it was and why he was taking Victoria there.

MOO

ETA: I guess it's possible that the people who live in Drayton, a very small town, spend a lot of time in Mt Forest which is a little bigger to do shopping etc rather than going into the larger city of Guelph. And his Aunt and Uncle may have taken him there often and they may have known people from Mt Forest that they visited with regularily. Lots of farmers in that area and I would imagine they get together for farm related fairs, auctions etc.

Rafferty trial shifts to new chapter

A new chapter in the Crown's case against Michael Rafferty is set to begin Friday in a London courtroom – what the accused said to friends after disappearance of Victoria 'Tori' Stafford.

“He had some interesting things to say to other people about Terri-Lynne McClintic, about the kidnapping itself,” Crown Attorney Kevin Gowdey told jurors in his opening remarks.

The Crown finished Thursday what it called the car chapter, which examined evidence found in Rafferty's 2003 Honda Civic.

Mike Knoll: Here's a clip from today's story:

"We did talk one time about abducting kids and how they take the kids and make them be like their own," ex-girlfriend Sarah Hodge, 31, testified, elaborating a few seconds later, "how people take their kids and abduct them and they just grow up thinking that they're their real parents."

Rafferty was obsessed with the Stafford case, testified Hodge, who said she started dating him April 14, 2009, six days after Tori disappeared while walking home from her Woodstock school.

Thank you to all that helped build the list of his "girlfriends" as well as clarifying that I wasn't the only one who missed the Mt. Forest chapter.

Just to recap Swedie's post from the previous thread - here are the current list of "girlfriends" which I'm sure will grow.

Women MR was involved with around the time of Tori's death

-TL McClintic - 21, GF helped MR abduct Tori for alleged sexual/nefarious purposes.

-A. Lane - met MR in grade six and reconnect in 2009 through FB

- Miss WS - GF at the time of his arrest. Dated for five to six weeks.

-J. Wood - woman known to MR. She was in her Honda in GLF parking lot day of his arrest. Her car also seized by LE.

-Amanda - MR admitted to LE during taped interview May 15/09, he dated her a few times. MR claimed Amanda was a friend of TM and her daughter a friend to Tori.

-Kate - MR spoke about Kate (not real name), would not tell LE her real name.

-B. Armstrong - ex lover, met at BBeef/work, had girly talks with MR, supplied oxy drugs numerous times to MR including the day Tori was murdered.

-Miss Unknown (Pub ban) - 37, MR met her on POF April 12/09, MR told her about TLM in detention centre being questioned about Tori's abduction.

-S. Hodge - 31, C&Y worker MR met on POF April 14/09, saw each other every day for two and a half weeks. Said he was a dance instructor. She mostly drove them around, MR on phone setting up dance appointments. MR told her he took oxy, he thought he had colon cancer. MR spoke to her about people abducting children raising them as their own. Obsessed with Tori's case listening to news and reading newspaper.

-T. Moore aka Tam Tam, met MR on Yahoo 2003. MR bought car in 2007 from used car lot in TO. Noticed May 9/09 back seat and rear carpet missing from MR's car.

-M. LaBute, MR met her at her workplace Staples March 09, saying he was new in town. She told MR she wasn't interested, described MR as nervous and needy. Spent a lot of time on phone keeping track of his workers claiming to own contracting business.

I am not trying to defend MR but having "Bring Tori Home" on MSN and being obsessed with the case along with having Tori's missing persons flyer. Isn't much evidence IMO. I had flyers of Tori in my home ( As i place them around my hometown) And i am sure to say obsessed with this case...most people were and still are such as us on this forum. If we weren't obsessed we wouldn't be wanting to hear all details in the court room.

Im thinking few women would respect men who seem to have multiple ladies on the go. I believe, the line of lies told to these women was just a ploy to get what he was really seeking from these ladies. Relationships are short, because for the most part, people can figure folks out pretty quickly, especially older women, 17 year olds probably a bit more easilly mislead! For example, how many contractors do you know who conduct business from a beat to crap honda civic??? How many dance instructors probably would have no clue who Mikhail Baryshnikov is, if asked! Its easy for people to spot lies and if I was a lady using Plenty of Fish, Id be on a good defensive right from the start...

Makes me wonder if he just wasn't able to get it on with any of them and reverted to young girls (Tori). Even Tori wasn't young enough for him according to TLM. So, did he already experience a girl Tori's age? Questions to ponder as disgusting as it is.

If they can prove that Rafferty was really familiar with the area or "partied" there in the past, they can make a connection to the fact that he looked for a familiar succluded area to do the deed.:detective::dervish::moo:

That connection could be made. Also his actions speak louder than words. TLM was up in the helicopter trying to locate the area of the crime. He was the driver of the car and knew full well how to get there and find Tori's remains.

He said his car wasn't "in the best shape", so she drove when they got coffee in Kitchener/Waterloo (he came in from Woodstock).

Rafferty discussed his family, said he didn't get along with his brother. Also discussed looking for Tori, helping search.

He said he drove a woman to the police station for questioning, because police thought she had been involved.

RaffertyLFP: Cooney said Rafferty asked to meet her again but she ignored him

She spent two hours with Rafferty, said she "wanted the date to be over". Had different views and values. He asked for 2nd date She declined

No kore questions for Cooney. None from Derstine. The comments to friends chapter is over. Now in the connection to Mount Fprest chapter.

She was asked to go to the Stag and Doe, but said no, as she wasn't feeling well. Said it seemed weird to ask her. He seemed upset.

She worked at Staples. He came into the store to say hi, brought a coffee. He asked why she wasn't more excited to see him. She was busy.

Man does he ever get around this is just maddening. Maybe he knew he was going to get busted and tried to get with a bunch of women before his arrest? Maybe fishing for information etc.

So sick

it is almost like that "inserting yourself into the search" behavior in perps that you will sometimes see....:twocents:

This was the day TLM was charged with Tori's murder if i am correct.

No, that was the day she was picked up by LE for a probation violation. It wasn't until May 19th, while still in custody for the probation violation, that she confessed to the murder.

I am not trying to defend MR but having "Bring Tori Home" on MSN and being obsessed with the case along with having Tori's missing persons flyer. Isn't much evidence IMO. I had flyers of Tori in my home ( As i place them around my hometown) And i am sure to say obsessed with this case...most people were and still are such as us on this forum. If we weren't obsessed we wouldn't be wanting to hear all details in the court room.

However MR was involved so maybe the crown is going to use this in some way.


the thing is 'he' was the only person able to bring Tori home after all is said... TLM couldn't find the location MR chose that spot. it's quit disgusting to me and it strengthens his guilt in hiding his involvment imo he really thought he'd get away with it

Why does this name sound familiar?

The name is common in the Horseshoe area.... I went to school with some Cruickshank's.

RaffertyLFP: The woman said Rafferty was well-dressed - a real Metro look

Just like all the contractors here in Woodstock !Oh and I bet many also teach a little dance on the side! haha

Wonder if he thought working the contractor angle would get him in with th ladies... likely lots of single ladies out there needing some household repairs etc done...

i doubt he worked an honest days work in his life!:twocents:

RaffertyLFP: Cruikshank identifies landfills near Harriston and Palmerston, Drayton

RaffertyLFP: One landfill is just south of Mount Forest

There was also a landfill near Riverston. It's close to side road 5/highway 6. Just south of Mount Forest, not far from the scene.

RaffertyLFP: Cruikshank was interviewed by Stafford investigators - gave them documents re sites that Rafferty worked

Cruickshank says police eventually contracted him about the Tori investigation. They asked for documents about Rafferty's employment.

I guess, but there's really are times when I really wish that they had not let the defence have the last word.

A very astute observation, about a situation that has prevailed throughout the trial. Derstine doesn't say much.......but has asked one or two questions which has negated a lot of Crown witness testimony.

The final words of the pathology and DNA experts are examples, where the jury is left with "there is no evidence that proves........" in their minds.

I am wondering why the Crown doesn't redirect.......but maybe because the defense could ask more questions and it would turn into a merry go round of questions.

I hope when you state "negated a lot of Crown witness testimony", is your opinion.
