    Micheal Blagg Charged in the murder of his wife Jennifer

    Grand Junction Colorado, November 13, 2001.

    This was a three part series in the Rocky Mountain News on the Blagg case. Great reading!

    Part one: In a pious home, the ultimate sin
    http://www.rockymountainnews.com/drm...169982,00.html

    "GRAND JUNCTION - In a home once filled with the spirit of the Lord, the devil was in the details.

    The blood that dripped off the master bed and pooled on the floor. The computer cluttered with hundreds of X-rated images. The valuables still there - and the people who weren't......"

    Part two: Grim task in a harsh land
    http://www.rockymountainnews.com/drm...173178,00.html

    "GRAND JUNCTION - The search for Jennifer and Abby Blagg began on land and water, all the terrain in a 45-mile radius of the Blagg home - the mileage unaccounted for on the family's Ford minivan.

    On foot, on horseback, in the air, 2,200 volunteers from nine states and 49 Colorado towns devoted 11 days in April to the effort, their determination matched only by their frustration. The search area encompassed the Colorado River and rugged high desert, a daunting landscape of crags and crannies....."

    08.13.03 Wife's note no motive for Blagg, lawyer says
    By MIKE WIGGINS The Daily Sentinel
    Michael Blagg's lawyers are criticizing attempts to introduce into evidence a note his wife wrote days before she was killed, saying the prosecution's theory that it was a catalyst for Blagg to murder his wife is nothing more than speculation.

    08.15.03 Wife's note sure sign of crisis, DA argues
    By MIKE WIGGINS The Daily Sentinel

    " Prosecutors pushing to introduce into evidence a note Jennifer Blagg penned hours before she was shot to death contend the writing indicated a "severe family crisis" in the Blagg household.

    District Attorney Frank Daniels believes the note was directed toward Michael Blagg and sheds light on the motive for him to murder his wife. He is attempting to convince District Judge David Bottger to reverse an earlier decision to suppress the note.... "

    08.28.03 Lawyer: No evidence that Blagg had severe family crisis
    By MIKE WIGGINS

    Prosecutors have no evidence that there was a "severe family crisis" that led Michael Blagg to murder his wife, defense lawyers say.

    In court papers filed this week, public defenders David Eisner and Ken Singer reinforced their argument that Mesa County District Attorney Frank Daniels is only speculating about the role he believes a note penned by Jennifer Blagg hours before she was killed played in her slaying.............................

    08.31.03 Change of venue iffy in Blagg trial
    By MIKE WIGGINS, The Daily Sentinel

    The question of whether the massive publicity of Michael Blagg's first-degree murder trial will force it out of Mesa County pits Colorado's trial courts' past decisions on the issue against the circumstances that presently define the case. .....................

    I've always been extremely interested in this case. I used to live only a few miles from the Blagg residence, but that was years ago.

    It's going to be a really hot case when it comes to trial. Hopefully at that time, it will have it's own forum here.

    Hi,

    There is another thread on this in the Socialogical Issues Forum. It has some pretty good links on there. Also River posted that there will be a forum on this once it goes to trial.

    10.10.03 Judge reverses decision on Jennifer Blagg note
    By MIKE WIGGINS The Daily Sentinel

    A judge ruled this week he will allow attorneys to argue at trial whether a note Jennifer Blagg penned hours before she was killed should be shown to a jury, reversing an earlier decision to immediately throw out the writing. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    Bumping

    November 13, is the two year anniversary since the disappearance of Jennifer and Abby. November 12 was the last day that they spent together alive. Sometime later that day or in the early hours of November 13, all that changed.

    Blagg Lawyers Want More Time

    "Attorneys for murder suspect Michael Blagg asked a judge Tuesday to give a defense expert more time to analyze fingerprint evidence recovered from the home where Blagg's wife was killed.

    Public defenders David Eisner and Ken Singer asked District Judge David Bottger to grant an exception to an earlier order instructing prosecutors and defense lawyers to provide all evidence and a final endorsement of witnesses by Jan. 1.......... "


    Full Article


    IMO, this man has not one but TWO public defenders, paid for courtesy of the taxpayers. He's living in Warner Robins Georgia with his mother, working and living his life. How much overhead does he have? His family is dead. He's living with his mother for cripes sake! IMO, he should reimburse the county for those public defenders. He has a source of income. He's not indigent.

    Hi Quincy! I almost forgot this case was getting close to a trial date. I wonder why they haven't charged him with his daughter's death? Surely, they can't think she is alive somewhere? They didn't find her body at the dump with her mother so did he bury her some place else when he had more time? I've also wondered if his pornography addiction extended to child pornograpy.

    Hi Whitewolf! Good questions. Wherever Abby is, there is not much left but her bones. I hope someday she can be found. Then he will be charged for her murder also. As to for the pornography, you know anything could be possible. A little over two months and his trial will begin. I can't wait!

    EDITED to add that I bumped this up after reading River's message about deleting old threads. I didn't want this one to go away!! Hope that's OK River?

    Judge Grants Blagg Attorneys More Time

    01.01.04Judge grants Blagg more time
    By MIKE WIGGINS The Daily Sentinel

    A judge Wednesday granted Michael Blagg's lawyers some leeway in preparing their defense of him in the slaying of his wife, giving them more time to analyze fingerprint evidence from the murder scene.

    Mesa County District Judge David Bottger instructed a defense expert to complete his testing of fingerprints recovered from the Blagg home by Jan. 31. He backed off an earlier order for prosecutors and defense attorneys to provide all evidence and a final endorsement of witnesses by today......

    A former WS poster whose hat was RHGC involved himself in the Blagg case some time ago (just as he'd promised us he would) and at one point was even interviewed about the case on Denver TV. I wonder if RHGC is still trying to prove that a small-time crook named Robert Pachaly killed Abby Blagg.

    RHGC also believes Pachaly murdered JonBenet, Susannah Chase, Martha Moxley, to name a few others. RHGC is an attorney and was at one time, I believe, a Connecticut State Senator.

    River, if you're reading this, have you heard from Richard lately? It would be interesting to read what he has to say about the Blagg case.

    Edited to add: It wouldn't surprise me if he thinks Pachaly murdered Laci Peterson too.

    Ahhh yes. I do remember RHGC very well. He had it all figured out. The intruder theory that Michael Blagg tried to portray with the open back door. RHGC said it was very possible the intruder(s) could have climbed over the rear fence as it faced a busy street.

    One thing, the street is not busy, and the other thing is the fence is a 6 foot cedar fence. Climbing would not be impossible, but putting a body and or bodies over the fence would.

    Of course it was Robert Pachaly. Came all the way to Grand Junction.

    Ivy, as I recall someone posted a long time ago here at WS that RHGC was coming back here. Haven't seen him.

    RHGC emailed not too long ago to report that he's just fine. He's still convinced that Pachaly murdered everyone in the Western Hemisphere.

    Remember, this guy supposedly murdered Darlier Routier's boys, as well. That Pachally really gets around.

    RHGC is doing whatever he does this time of year. Travels, I think. He'll be back soon. Ned keeps track of him, as well.

    Bumping this up because it was about to drop off.

    The news is sparse, but it will be picking up very soon. The trial begins March 1.

    Thank you, Quincy, for caring for the missing, and those left behind to search for them.

    I saw the thread could soon be deleted, and started bumping. We lost all of the Molly Bish thread recently, and that made me sad. I hope when I am away on my trip to Texas someone can keep these threads bumped, so we do not lose them.

    Even the ones who have been found, need to be remembered.

    Blessings and hugs, Lanie
