    Mike Knoll: Hank Daniszewski's noon trial update:

    Two neighbors of Michael Rafferty said they saw a car seat in a garbage pile front of his home.

    Michael Griswold and David Pushie said, both residents of Tennyson Street, said they saw the car seat, covered by a couch during a spring clean up week in Woodstock on April 2009 about a week after Victoria Stafford disappeared.

    Police officials testified the bottom portion of Rafferty's rear car seat was missing when it was seized in May and was never located.

    Griswold said the car seat appeared to be ripped with a sharp object.

    Terri-Lynne McClintic testified Rafferty told her to cut out part of the seat because it could not be cleaned.

    Defense lawyer suggested to Griswold that he saw Rafferty remove the seat earlier to install speakers but Griswold said he did not recall that.

    Griswold said the rear seat was in the car when he helped Rafferty move his car from Guelph a year earlier to move in with his mother on Tennyson Street.

    The court also heard from a woman who briefly dated Rafferty at about the same time. She said his car seemed very dirty and littered and the rear seat appeared to be covered with a blanket.

    She said Rafferty appeared "nervous" and "needy" and she moved to break off the relationship quickly.

    I think you're probably right, an error. Couldn't find another source for sperm on my search.

    • Derstine asks if chunks were cut out of the seat. Griswold says no. Just one cut. No more questions.

    does not the above stated by the witness that MR removed the seat March 29th....please someone correct me if I am reading this incorrectly....thus the reason I said there was no back seat at the time of the murder....

    Or it's quite possible the first witness has his dates mixed up. Or the seat was returned to the car for a time (and different reason) and removed again.

    Perhaps the ripped seat that Griswold saw is the one that was in the car at the time Tori was taken and because of the rip in the seat "fluids" leaked inside and that is perhaps what TLM was told to cut out. The seat seen by DP was likely the same seat but with more "damage". And perhaps the reason it was seen covered by a blanket previously by girlfriends, etc. is because he was attempting to hide the original rip. MOO

    Where is the proof that the seat was removed in March?

    Because Derstine said so?

    If he wasn't "dating" TLM, why is her DNA mixed with his sperm on his front passenger car seat? Why did he have pictures of her in a motel room wearing his t-shirt on his SD card? Why is there video of them attending a movie?

    I found this: If you're asking if we can get a DNA profile from semen that contains no sperm, then the answer is no. Sperm is the only component of semen that contains DNA. I guess it is possible that someone might shed a few skin cells into the semen, but it would be pretty unlikely.

    no Kamille not because Dirk said so...because I believe there is a written statement from this witness from that time frame (which he reminded him of and the witness agreed)..... I have stated my thoughts and the way I read the statements today and now I will move on so this will be my last post on that seat)... respectfully yours...... I also would like to add that I want the person or persons responsible for TS death to be dealt with according to the law but I also don't want someone convicted on the words of a known and proven liar....how sad would that be....as I have previously stated, there is no doubt in my mind that MR played some role in this but to what extent has yet to be proven...the fact that he was there should be enough to put him away for a number of years but lets make sure that the label on him is the correct one....accessory yes...murderer (no as per TLM)...sexual interference with TS...not proven and can't be....no evidence as per the pro's...that is why I am keeping an open mind on those other charges... his lifestyle is no concern of mine nor how many women he dated at one time etc....

    I will have to go back in the threads to find the tweets but I believe Griswold is testifying to witnessing two separate incidents with the car seat. The first in March where the seat was removed with the inference being to install speakers thereafter the seat was put back in the car and the second incidence April 15 when the seat was put on the curb for trash collection. The latter was viewed by two different neigbours who both also testified that there was a large piece of furniture on top of the car seat on April 15th. They therefore could not see if the seat had chunks missing. JMO

    At least this was my understanding. Hopefully someone will jump in if I'm wrong. I'll go looking for those tweets.

    JMO......I don't think the defense has ever intimated the MR wasn't in the car.

    Their theory is that TLM lied about why VS was there, and she had her own plot brewing. The plot didn't work out and the police had become involved by then. TLM decided to murder VS to hide her involvement.

    MR panicked when he returned to the car, didn't call LE, and tried to hide the evidence of the crime.

    TLM claimed MR told her.......to help clean up because she was involved in it as much as he was. When TLM first made that statement........she accused MR of killing VS. Now that we know it was TLM who killed VS, it is more likely that TLM said that to MR.......IMO

    IMO.......The Crown counted heavily on the testimony of TLM, but her changes in testimony and the background uncovered by the defense.........devastated her credibility.

    What about guys that have been fixed? The old expression shooting blanks comes to mind lol. The car had a previous owner - is it possible he too used it as a love shack? I can't check right now, but if somebody wants to look into that.

    Keeping in mind that the expert noted that it is possible for DNA to e deposited in layers.

    The thought of the inside of that car makes me ill. Yech!

    Actually this is taken out of context. He is saying when he saw the seat on March 29th there were no chunks out of it. NOT when it was seen in the trash pile.

    Maybe he only used a condom when his partner insisted that he do so.
