    Laura's remembered fondly by her former boss

    “She was one of the most amazing women I have ever met,” said Mike Rivera, president of AllOver Media’s Greenville franchise, of Ackerson’s drive to become a consummate professional who could handle any task thrown at her.
    .
    .
    Ackerson quickly excelled in the position and based on her sales output, Rivera agreed in November [2010] to promote her to operations manager
    .
    .
    “She was a very intelligent woman who was extremely resourceful and resilient,”
    .
    .
    Ackerson showed her true toughness, leaving AllOver Media in February to put her versatile skill set and cheerful attitude to the test as an entrepreneur.
    .
    .
    Hard times led businesses to cut advertising, causing Ackerson to weigh the costs of making the commute from Kinston to Greenville against the sacrifices she needed to make to become a full-time mother, which Rivera said was her main goal.

    I have a storage unit with many of my mother's things stored in it. I have to go through a gate with a code specific to our unit. I wonder if this is how the police knew that AH and GH were at the storage unit. When they began to suspect these two, they would have checked their movements during the timeframe of her disappearance. These inspections would have included any surveillance (possible at storage units), any bank activity (including cash withdrawls), possibly cell phone pings, etc...

    I have no idea why they were at the storage unit, but it could be any number of reasons including looking for tools, plastic, or other items to help them dispose of Laura. As gruesome as it sounds, they might have just been trying to find something already in their possession to help them "get rid of the evidence".
    Right about the location of the murder. I was saying for an instant when I read about the storage unit I thought they may have dismembered her there.
    LE removed a ton of potential evidence from the apartment, including the plumbing, to hopefully prove she was dismembered in the tub. I haven't found a connection yet to the storage unit, how or why LE went there, or if it holds any secrets.

I am afraid this never-ending CA saga may eventually do him in though. Too much stress, too many mistakes all around, too many unethical defense lawyers, too much of everything negative in that case.
    East, have you heard any bad news about JP? Is he having problems? Man-oh-man, I hope not. I hope he has just washed his hands of it and has just settled-in to the next case. He certainly can't be challenged or reversed (that would prolly please him!!) on the freakin' verdict, so he has prolly chalked it up to "just one of crazy those things." Part of the job...

    His demeanor during that trial really didn't change whether he denied or allowed testimony from either side, altho I could discern a bit of "oh, dammit" when he dealt with Baez at times............. ........ And that's the way a judge should be. Just like here in Raleigh, the principals know each other from talk they hear, from sharing a courtroom together in other procedures, and judges in "past lives" when they have been prosecutors or defenders or both.

    Good thoughts to JP!

    I still give major props to the Raleigh Police Dept. for acting fast and smart in this case. They put 2 and 2 together in a darn quick hurry and connected the dots all the way to Texas just in the nick of time. With another day or so in that Texas heat, and the alligator in the creek, I feel as if LA's body parts may have never been found.
    Yes, GH and LA + their infant son lived in the apt on Summit Manor (where her car was discovered on 7/20/11) in 2008 prior to moving to the VI.

    AH (and GH) rented the apt where they currently live in May 2010 and have lived there since...well not any more.

    I believe that the reason the car was moved there (by GH IMO) was because it was far enough away from GH apt so that it would not be casually seen around there, but not too far that he couldn't walk home (AH had infant and boys to watch). I also think his prints were the latent ones lifted in the SW.

    re: RPD, I recall from early on that Texas LE couldn't compliment them enough on their knowledge, coordination, speed and efficiency. Quite frankly, they were amazed and not embarrassed to admit it. RPD were the first ones knocking on AH's sisters door after a courtesy check-in with the local sheriff's office. The FBSO came into the picture after RPD discovered body parts and based on their interviews with AH's relatives.

    Well, that probation hearing hearing last Friday landed back in Judge Perry's lap--after Judge Stan initiated it the week before and then went on vacation after recusing himself again. Judge Stan (Strickland?--can't remember his last name at the moment, the original judge in the CA case) had orally sentenced CA to serve one year of probation upon her release and the clerk who typed up the order messed up the part about serving after her release, omitted that part altogether. The defense is saying she served her one year of probation while in jail....and a probation officer saw her one time and that's it. The original judge brought it to everybody's attention 2 weeks ago that he sentenced CA to that one year of probation and then left it all for Judge Perry to sort out. Judge Perry had to endure 90 minutes of courtroom drama last Friday morning and couldn't make a decision until he researched case law. Said he couldn't find any case law in the state of Florida and would have to dig deep. So he's still not finished with CA and her mess. He was his sweet and somewhat jolly, easy going, old self last Friday and it was so good to see him again. I have truly missed him. I can tell he wants to do the right thing but I can also tell that he wants to wash his hands of everything pertaining to CA and never be bothered with her again.

    I can't believe nobody heard anything in an apartment complex. When I lived in an apt they lady living the floor below me would hit her broom on the ceiling whenever my toddler ran or jumped across the room.
    I agree -- hacking, or chain saws??? They are noisy!! And maybe a neighbor did mention it. I would think the LEOs would have asked around...

    If they were bold [and stooopid, stoopid, IMO] enuff to drive to Texas with her body parts (!), seems like they would have done the hacking in the storage facility... (That's what I would have done ??? I can't imagine it, really, but still....) In their living room, kitchen, bathroom??? Dayam.

    But the investigators took pipes and drains, etc., so they must have found evidence. If they did do it there, I'll bet that place would have looked like a disco with the glow that luminol would have produced...

    Just one big YUCK.

    Freaks.

    I agree about using the storage unit for the dismemberment and after reading about the unit in the search warrant I thought that's where it may have happened. But as you said, LE removed much of the plumbing and traps and I hope there was plenty of evidence to be found in them.

    I have never ever thought about killing anybody in my entire life unless it was somebody who had broken into my house...and even then I'm not positive I could pull the trigger. How 2 otherwise normal, rational and sane people could kill.....and then hack up a body into enough pieces to fit into 5 large coolers is just too much for me to imagine. They are freaks.

    GH is not a very physically imposing guy himself (5'5" 120), so maybe these mysterious ****s and goons he imagines at his beck and call were a more effective threat to LA.

    I absolutely cannot stand it that AH is having this attorney defend her. And I am paying for it with my tax dollars! Something is so wrong with our system.

    I read comments here by others which suggest that Amanda was "under the influence" of GH. I have no facts, but my gut says, hell no. I don't view her as a victim at all. I would not be surprised if she ends up being the instigator of the heinous acts they performed.
    You make some good points, Boodles. The defense attorneys have a responsibility to their clients, and to the State if the State is paying, to make sure the client gets a fair trial. That they must do, and I don't have a problem with that. BUT, yes, it seems to be more than that in some cases we have seen, and it's hard, hard to swallow. And what about the victim's loved ones?? I can't imagine.

    (And I should add that that is not what always happens, certainly. And we have seen screw-ups and dishonesty on the other side, too. There have been some horrible injustices against defendants as well.)

    Certainly the guilty ones will get their come-uppance eventually, most of us believe, but they also need to get it just like their victims were denied it -- here and now. JMHO.

    Sadly, we do not live in a perfect world.

    Forgive me for this post. I have this stuck in my head and I have to get it out.

    This is the same man who caressed LA's arms, legs and body. The same man who rubbed her head and wiped her sweaty brow (presumably) when she was in labor with his 2 sons. This is the same man who...God...it just sickens me.....

    I can't believe that his ex-wife said he isn't a monster. If he didn't do the unthinkable with the corpse, well then....

    It makes me physically sick to think about. I hope that these MONSTERS, yes monsters, rot forever more.

    So assuming she went to GH's apt and never came out alive you can't help but wonder if they had a neutral public meeting place in Raleigh she could still be alive today

    I'm also assuming that the children were in the apt when she was killed. I wonder if she was strangled before she was dismembered.

    My sentiments exactly. I found this forum due to interest in this case from knowing GH. (Good work to all involved btw.) I know GH well enough to hope for life instead of the DP for him. His small stature, love of self, artistic spirit... Hell, he's even kinda' purdy!(Big Bertha...) I'm not a negative person by nature, but this truly has me stuck in a corner. I wish the worst for GH, and don't feel the DP would cut it!

    I don't have gut feelings very often but I'm having one about this case and the primaries involved. Something, many things, just don't feel right. I'll be glad when more info is made public. To my knowledge, GH's parents in Kinston still haven't said anything via interviews and haven't filed for temporary custody of the children have they?
    I believe a previous post stated that they were "given" temporary custody by DSS/Children's Services and do not need to request it.
