    Then, because that might not be enough proof, the perp needs to leave their bloody shoes next to the victim, with another note that says, "these are my shoes!" signed, the perp.

    Finally, they need a video of the perp either committing the murder itself, or confessing to the murder while grinning evilly at the camera.

    Anything else? Not "real evidence," not "actual evidence," and certainly not proof of anything. "Circumstantial Evidence?" Oh that's just not 'real.'
    Exactly. And the problem with the video would be it was edited and photoshopped....

    I keep trying to imagine what he would say. I can't come up with a good answer, but you can bet he would be prepared with a well thought out response.

    Isn't keeping life "normal" for children considered a good thing in times of stress?

To me, circumstantial evidence would be a credit card purchase at that gas station. It doesn't *prove* that he killed his wife, but it would be evidence that he left that hotel that night. Or to use a great example from this case, the FACT that he was seen leaving on camera, and not coming back in.

    Maybe gritguy can weigh in on circumstantial evidence, but my understanding is that it is *factual* evidence used to weigh guilt or innocence.
    BBM and ditto.

    I will say this, even though there's nothing to assume but that JY killed his wife, I would never, ever convict based on an assumption.

    I missed the first week or so of the first trial. So I didn't make a list, per se. But IMHO, the witnesses this morning added a couple, to me.

    1. That JY was very unhappy with his marriage. Like who tells a teacher his wife only gives him some except to get pregnant? I was shocked by that. It adds more to the point, JY wanted out of this marriage.

    2. The child in day care with the dolls. I believe this says volumes. At least to me.

    What could he possibly say that would make any sense?
    Pretty sure she just had a mental lapse and blew it...imo

    To this day, we don't know what made the garage door go up. I had my .357 S&W, and hubby had a bat. When we opened the door to the garage, and flicked the light on, nobody was there. But as I said, as we came down the stairs, right next to the garage, I stated extremely loud, Richard, I've got my gun, get yours.' I said it a couple times, so if there was anybody in the garage, they would have heard me shouting "I've got my gun" a couple times. We exited through the open garage door, and checked around our cars outside in the driveway, and then around the front of the house. We never did see anybody though. But something made the garage door go up. We didn't realize one could possibly raise it by hand. And we didn't know we had a lock feature on the thing on the wall to open and close the door. Now we make sure it's locked before we go to bed. But we did try to use our handheld automatic door opener from the street, it doesn't make the door go up until we turn into the driveway. We also tried our daughters handheld garage door opener on our garage door, it doesn't work. Our houses are side by side, and built by the same builder, so we thought perhaps another door opener *might work* on our door. It didn't. We have never learned who or what opened the garage door at 3:00 a.m. that night though. But we were extremely glad we had a loaded gun ready, because I learned through experience it would be hard for me to load a gun as scared as I was that night.

    I believe it was the fact the dog did not bark that night. At least that anyone could hear.

    I forgot to put that on my list. Ehhh, that would be the guilty list.

    I would think so. I saw at least one person in this thread who indicated they'd have sent their child back to daycare that soon as well, it's probably healthier, IDK.

    I'm not sure that I would. I think I'd be too terrified that the killer might change his mind about leaving my baby alive and hunt him down.

    The POS would have to get through me, and over my dead body!

    IMO

    I don't need any more convincing.
    JMHO
    Also, I believe that a normal night would have included calls and texts to MM since he was out of the house and away from his wife. I know they haven't brought up his normal nightime phone usage, but with the amount of calls and texts that happened the next day, the only way, IMO, that his phone wasn't used all night was because he didn't want it to ping near his house.

    Considering the last Jury was 8-4 not guilty, there must have been a substantial amount of reasonable doubt found by the last jury. Where else does it come from other than the timeline and size 10 shoes?

    I guess other things I can think of right now are lack of DNA evidence at the crime scene, and lack of fiber or blood transfer to anything connected to JY.
    :shrugs: Again, timeline works for me.

    Except that the expert testified that although a shoe print outter line is one size, the top side can be anothe size, ie 9 or 11 or whatever. Not necessarily always exact as the sole print indicates.

    Think of it this way, imho, on one style or make, you wear a 9 1/2, while another style or brand, you wear a 10 or 10 1/2.

    People want DIRECT evidence. Direct evidence is an eyewitness, for instance.

    So the PT puts on an eyewitness ... someone who interacted with JY at the gas station she worked at, and pointed him out not only in court, but 2 days after the murder. There is a cash receipt which corroborates her testimony. She not only ID'd the person, she ID'd his vehicle, without anyone prompting her.

    But she is not believed.

    You really can't win.
