    The blood clean-up at the sink

    Can someone give me some information on the clean-up at the sink? I keep seeing the sink on different crime shows and want to know where they discuss the sink in the transcripts and I can't find it.

    Charles Linch talks about the sink eatly in Volume 37. Kathryn Long also testifies about it as she actually did the presumptive tests, but I don't recall now in which volume

    Jennifer, here you go.

    9 Q. All right. What is the next thing
    10 that you all did then?
    11 A. Again, we moved back into the house,
    12 and as you stand in the front entryway hall, you can
    13 evaluate the family room and the kitchen.
    14 And, at that time I asked Miss Long to
    15 check other bathrooms for occult or latent blood that you
    16 cannot see, as if someone had washed up. And then I
    17 focused my attention on the kitchen sink.
    18 Q. All right. And when you looked at the
    19 kitchen sink, what was its appearance?
    20 A. It was unusual. It -- the sink
    21 portion had been cleaned of blood, and the blood stains
    22 on the front of the cabinet, were such that when that
    23 blood was being shed, it would also need to be shed into
    24 the sinks, which were now clean. So, it was my opinion
    25 that the sinks had probably been cleaned of blood.

    1 Q. All right. Did you do any testing,
    2 presumptive testing to determine if there was actually
    3 blood in the sink or around the sink?
    4 A. Miss Long did.

    5 Q. All right. And what were the results?
    6 A. The faucets were -- showed no blood
    7 present, but with our chemicals we got a reaction.
    8 Q. All right.
    9 A. The -- there were some stains that
    10 appeared to be watered down, that had run into the

    11 stainless steel areas, that were positive for blood.
    12 Kathryn took samples of those. The
    13 water faucet, where the water actually comes out, that
    14 appeared clean and stainless steel, but that was also
    15 reactive for the presence of blood.
    16 Q. All right. Now, when you get a
    17 reaction for blood, does it range -- is there a certain

    18 range of reaction? I mean, does all blood react equally,
    19 or do you have a variance there?
    20 A. Well, with time you appreciate a
    21 difference. With the chemicals we use, if blood is
    22 present, or the presumptive presence of blood, it will
    23 pop up a green color, kind of a blue-green.
    24 If the blood is fresh, it will react
    25 very quickly and a very bright blue-green. If the blood
    Sandra M. Halsey, CSR, Official Court Reporter
    2798

    1 is old, you will get kind of a dull, light-green color to
    2 the reaction.
    3 And some of the false/positive
    4 materials will give the dull, slower, green reaction.
    5 Q. What kind of reaction did you get for
    6 the samples actually inside the bowl of the sink?
    7 A. Those were quickly and darkly
    8 reactive.
    9 Q. All right. Did you sample anything
    10 from the faucet area that appeared to be clean?
    11 A. Yes, sir.
    12 Q. What kind of reaction did you get up
    13 there?
    14 A. That was quickly and darkly reactive.
    15 Q. Which told you what?
    16 A. That there was recent contact with
    17 that faucet with blood.
    18 Q. All right. Did you have an
    19 opportunity to look at the cabinet work that faces right
    20 there at the sink area?
    21 A. Yes, sir.
    22 Q. All right. Was there blood actually
    23 visible on the cabinetry?
    24 A. Oh, yes, sir.
    25 Q. How about on the handles to the
    Sandra M. Halsey, CSR, Official Court Reporter
    2799

    1 cabinets?
    2 A. Yes, sir. There was blood on the
    3 knobs to the cabinets below the sink.
    4 Q. All right. Now, did you or Miss Long,
    5 in your presence, open up the doors to that cabinet?
    6 A. Yes, sir.
    7 Q. All right. And, did you see anything
    8 unusual when you opened up the doors to the cabinet?

    9 A. There was blood present inside the
    10 cabinet, consistent with the door having to have been
    11 opened when the blood was shed.
    12 Q. All right. So, in your opinion, was
    13 the blood on the facing or the outside of the cabinet,
    14 that was consistent with having been deposited when the
    15 doors were closed?
    16 A. Yes.
    17 Q. All right. Was there also blood

    18 inside that was consistent with having been dropped while
    19 the doors to the cabinet were actually open?
    20 A. Yes.
    21 Q. Do you remember what was inside that
    22 cabinet?
    23 A. As I recall, it was the usual under
    24 the sink, kitchen-cleaning materials, cleanser and stuff.
    25 Q. Now, did you instruct Miss Long to

    1 take actual blood samples from the kitchen sink area?
    2 A. Yes, sir.
    3 Q. Anything else done there at the sink
    4 at that time?
    5 A. At that time, no, sir.

    Thanks for the information Cami. Do you remember hearing something about the blood clean-up at the sink was from chicken blood from their dinner the night before? That must have been one bloody chicken. I always thought that was reaching a bit too far using the bloody chicken excuse. When I still thought Darlie wasn't guilty I thought she stood there on the phone with 911 and didn't even realize that she was cleaning the blood around the sink since she was such a clean freak. Funny how I was trying to think of any reason for her not to be guilty of this crime.

    LOL, Darlie supporter Jeffrey is the person who concocted the chicken blood story.

    It's totally made up from the fantasies of their heated brains. Not only was Darlie cutting up chicken for supper that night (they had chicken noodle soup), they have Darin repairing his computers with the bread knife, hence the polyglass fibre and the rubber dust on the knife.

    I feel sure if we could have perused Darlie's recycle bin, we'd find a couple of cans of Campbells. LOL

    I don't think they realize what harm they are doing when they concoct such ridiculous scenarios but they will say anything, anything to put the blame on anyone but Darlie.
