I am grateful for the jurors who have spoken out on their verdicts, and the clear thought and dedication they devoted to executing their duties as citizens.
I am grateful for all of you posters who have kept me updated during this trial, and today, when I could not watch the testimony, or interviews myself.
Madeleine, he will make lots of friends there, showing them how talented he is.
Loved that nobody on the jury bought the 'cigar story'. And the first juror to speak noted that the jeans in JLY's luggage didn't match the jeans he was seen wearing the last time he was in a photo. No jeans, no shirt, no HP's, no rounded toe shoes to produce. "If he had those items, why didn't he produce them for LE?" Some believed gracie, some not so much, but her testimony fit exactly into the timeline. They believed JLY unplugged the camera, and then flipped it up upon returning to the hotel. The first juror to speak, had the timeline down pat. She rattled off those times from memory. And everyone believed no random intruder would clean up a baby.
Both of these jurors were extremely articulate; and provided us a little bit of insight into how they reached this just verdict. It seems they didn't rush to judgement and really made an honest, thoughtful effort to go through each little piece of the puzzle that they weren't sure about. I thank the both of them for sharing with us today, and also for their time spent the last month listening carefully to all the testimony and evidence that allowed them to come to a guilty verdict that is more than deserved. This goes for the other 10 and the alternates too! As well as the 4 G's that refused to budge last summer that allowed justice to be served yesterday. THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU!!!
These jurors did exactly what was asked of them. They made sure they understood the law, the definitions, they spent ample time going through the evidence, they worked together as a team, discussed areas of disagreement, looked at more evidence and came to a unanimous conclusion.
This really is what our justice system asks of 12 people who have been selected to serve.
Did you hear that they gave them a 6 page handout on circumstantial evidence? So, maybe giving them some educational instruction works. If these two jurors are any indication of the others, then this was a very intelligent group.
What happened? I just typed out a reply, and it disappeared?

Awe bless Gracie's heart! She was scared when JY was out because she was by herself at her job. Worried he'd come at her. I was afraid when he was out on bond.
Bless Gracie's heart, she did the right thing from her heart not for fame!
Essentially, these jurors focused on the same evidence and testimony as the first jury and came to a different conclusion.
That's bad news for the appeal, and any contentions regarding the civil case and the doll play/comments (two strong objections).
She also qualified the missing clothing with the rationale that if you were innocent, and knew your relationship with the victim at the time (horrible) would bring the focus on you, you would be extra attentive to any perception that you withheld or destroyed evidence.
Gracie on phone on IS (kind of hard to hear her best I could do):
She's going over what happened with JY on the morning of the murder. Ryan asks if he was someone who was out of control and in a rage. Gracie: "yes he sure was". When she first heard his voice when he testified she turned to husband and said "that is him, I remember that voice" and when she saw pics of him being locked up it looked just like the shirt he had on that night.
She was scared when he was out on bail. Worried that he was going to come to her and "start" on her. When she was testifying she didn't even look at him. God told her to testify again.
Everything stated in my posts are my opinion, and my opinion onlyIn a sense, the Internet is the largest mob ever assembled. It sometimes transforms otherwise inhibited people into unrestrained, faceless "conduits for emotion."
What was the outcome of the civil trial? Is there a thread here? TIA

He now has a judgement of over $15 million dollars that he owes to Michelle Young's estate and all the insurance proceeds also went to the estate since by default judgement against him, he forfeited any rights to claim them.
Unless I've provided a link, everything I say is IMO
If you google Linda or Meredith you can review a lot of the custody, visitation & WD documents.
Good for them!

JY reminds me so much of the Coleman case... from thinking he was smarter than the LE & jury, right down to falling down to his knees when he "found out" his wife was murdered. CC is also appealing his verdict & fighting the exhumation of his wife & sons to be buried in her hometown instead of his until all his appeals are exhausted... it's sick!
