Why are they doing that here? Why would they leave the jury with the Defense's closing arguments, given the chance to put the last word in. The Defenses's arguments will be ringing in their ears when they go in to deliberate. Seems not right.
    i think she is doing it exactly right...last words not some jibbering rampage of random events but humanizing the family and victim and a return to the essential facts and why they are there.

    He probably has granddaughters Holly's age. It is a very sad ending to a beautiful life which held so much promise.

    They, the State, has NOT proven, beyond a reasonable doubt, that Zach, Dylan or Shayne or Jason kidnapped, raped or murdered Holly Bobo.

    Jason Autry has plenty of time to contact all guys in the jails to fabricate a story of a confession from Zach.

    The only person known to have stalked women, raped women, or assaulted women, is Terry Britt.

    Zach did have domestic violence issues, but that's a far cry from kidnapping, raping and murder.

    And there was and is not 1 shred of physical evidence that links Holly to any of those guys.

    How could a juror vote guilty on any of the charges?

    Well, because there IS evidence, and a jury can give weight to non-physical evidence too. It's hard to expect excellent physical evidence after 6 years, and frankly I think there would be more physical evidence if another law enforcement agency had handled the case.
    ETA: Personally, I found Jason Autry to be more credible than Dicus, so that is really, really saying something.

    I don't understand why every trial wouldn't have a photo of the victim displayed. To not do so is egregiously remiss and patently unjust to the victim. (This is not done in New York and, as a juror in a criminal trial there was shocked and disgusted.) The defendant is all dressed up in a shirt and tie, perfectly coiffed and shaved according to juror polling, and has been endlessly coached and re-coached as to demeanor, style and substance of answers. (Obviously, he was a choir-boy before the court date, too.)

    Meanwhile, over on the "victim" side, the only visible representation of the victim the jury saw was a naked man, face down on his bed, drowned in his own vomit. No face. Hell: No clothing. No Humanity. Nothing. Really, just a lump of ugly, dead, flesh.

    Thank heavens Holly could be present in her own case in what is now, in my opinion, the great state of Tennessee!

    I respectfully disagree with that statement. Even if I think (not saying this is my POV) the State hasn't proved BRD, I don't think that Jason Autry is going around jails/prisons rehearsing a story with other inmates.

    IMO
