Was the subject of a famous book by Joe McGinnis and that book was made into a TV Movie starring Gary Cole.

    Yep, he's had people arguing his innocence ever since, to no avail. And his case was long before there was DNA testing available. In that case there was a lot of blood evidence. Each of the victims and MacDonald had different blood types, so investigators were able to determine who was where in the apt based on blood type. MacDonald's story didn't match the blood evidence.
    I'm fascinated by that case. I remember the house being boarded up still in the late 80s. I loved Fatal Vision (both the book and movie). Here is a great site for that case:

    Note: The site has everything from the case. Be careful if you go searching around on it. It has crime scene photos and autopsy photos as well. It's heartbreaking.

    An absolute unbias person who quickly pulled lies BC told.
    As anyone knows, "it is easier to remember the truth, than the lie you told."
    IMHO...BC found that to be true.
    But everyone had to sort through a lot of mis-information. You, of course, remember that 4:20 am HT run.

    I am waiting to hear from the jury. Also interested in assembling a time-line for the investigation to see if anything jumps out that might explain the CPD going accident prone. The cell phone handling goes beyond suspicious. I asked before but no one responded, did Cary have or have access to a Cellibrite or other cell phone forensic device?

    Have been involved long before this case and will continue to do my part to preserve everyone's rights. Noticed the DAs are supporting a bill to restrict Innocence Commission.

    He had no problem with her going drinking with her friends and on extended vacations without him, even with other men. That is not a possessive/controlling husband characteristic.

    Someone else already posted the link, but I'll do it again (though it looks funny and I'm not sure I've done it right).

    So now you must believe there is an affidavit.

    This is BC's behavior both during his relationship with her and upon her breaking things off with him. Very telling, in light of the testimony that he became controlling when his wife wanted to leave. Also, it's the only thing I've read that reveals anything in the slightest about the nature of BC. No one else has anything to say about his personality, his likes, his dislikes, his feelings, his anything. He's been one big blank the whole way through.

    ETA: If the real BC is anything like what this woman describes, he had good reason to keep his real self under wraps.

    I agree. I'm happy with this insight she gave, especially calling BC out for not remembering her last name.
    We have 2 previous relationships state how he was to live with...Jennifer via affidavit and RKAB on WS. KL's affidavit states what it was like during her stays with NC. Dr. James Hilkey, a forensic psychologist testified in 2008 about BC personality type. And NC didn't endure emotional abuse?

    Yes CPD through Det. Thomas with CCBI had cellibrite and something else maybe FTK. They were used on the blackberry when Det. JY turned it over AFTER wiping the phone and sim.

    Of course going through the timeline presented by BL it appears the sim was actually not wiped until after the forensic exam was run.

    How do you and others continue to be suspicious of JA? She was a concerned friend who had the guts to call the police. What lies did she tell? None. She also has no motive for being involved.

    Amen!

    Not a person of interest, not a suspect, verifiable alibi, and not physically able to commit such a crime (smaller than the victim).

    Police Depts and the DA do not take their orders from private citizens despite what people would like to imagine in their wild conspiracy theories. The DA makes the call whether to proceed legally or not, based on the case, the evidence, and whether he thinks the case could be proved to a jury. He waited 5 yrs for Ann Miller, 3+ yrs for Jason Young to allow arrest/indictment, despite lots of pressure to proceed. He didn't. He waited, and then waited some more.

    Cisco wouldn't have a record. If Brad had a computer, the router, and an FXO card, he had all he needed to create his own home network. In order to believe that the call would show up on Cisco's logs, you'd have to believe that every customer of Cisco has to run their calls through Cisco's network.

    I think he used the desktop computer that had been "totally wiped in preparation for donation", unless there is some evidence that the desktop was wiped prior to the morning of 7/12.

    There was no necessary involvement from Cisco IT systems.
    The router with FXO port, and something like a laptop to configure it, makes for a self contained system. There would be no logs created at Cisco.

    The Gym Bag

    Did anyone else notice during a cross-exam of one of BC's co-workers, Kurtz started asking about a gym bag. He had the co-worker testify that it was normal for BC to bring a gym bag to and from work.

    The odd thing is that the prosecution never mentioned a gym bag.

    I kept waiting for a security guy to testify and show a video of BC coming to work on Saturday with a full gym bag, and leaving with an empty gym bag. But, no such testimony came.

    But... Kurtz knew that there was something about a gym bag that needed to be explained.

    What do you think? Was defending the unmentioned gym bag a "tell" by Kurtz?

    Welcome Reading. IMO her 911 call identifies her concern and to what extent she went to locate NC before calling.

    I believe JA had questions asked, we don't know to what extent.
    How is it JA's calendar was presented during testimony by Sandlin who represented the defense during that time? Why did she just give a calendar over that would be used against her, especially since it was blank on the 12th for NC to paint at her house?
    How easy for JA to fill in July 12th and make sure her so called story added up. She didn't.

    The computer that was wiped was donated in April.

    I don't believe she was involved, but she did say things that turned out to not be true (ducks, necklace, etc.). She also told MH that since she called the cops, she should be the only one to talk to the cops. So she wanted him to tell her the information to tell the cops. I believe she is also the one that coordinated the affidavits.
