    What could police be doing?

    If they got an order from a judge could they be tapping his phone lines like they did to Scott Peterson? Would they have obtained his telephone records by now?

    I think they probably have JYs phone records by now and have gone through them at least for the specific time relating to the murder.

    If they have sufficient evidence to convince a judge to tap JY's phone, if he is the suspect in fact, I suspect a judge would sign the order. However I know if there are any calls between him and his lawyer they must not listen or tape. I do not know if they could get a judge to sign an order for his parents phone where he is supposedly staying or not. Interesting questions.

    Hmmmm. I think they're building up a thorough case, AlwaysShocked! Whereas the public arena want all the facts - this sheriff is not bowing to that interest. So long as what he brings to the table is rock solid I doubt he's concerned more about time as he is about the RIGHT time. With the amount of loopholes in the law, the heightened fight by def attornies, the long-reknowned 'tainted jury pool' and the 'media frenzy' of other cases - this one is so tight-lipped that NO-ONE knows what is going on.

    This is one case that has not got a media-frenzy. And what has been released has, IMO, been fact. This has to be congratulated.

    What do you think or feel???

    There's been a number of cases over here where LE and media have been deathly quiet, and private eyes in the background working. Then all of a sudden, some at 2 months most within 6 months and 3 over a year, bang......arrests.

    All were convicted on very strong evidence.

    ETA: if silence is overwhelming then no one will have a chance to attempt to cover up something they have no idea 'needs covering'.

    Oh, I think they are building a case against the husband. I think it was obvious from the one interview I saw of the sheriff (?) - the one where he said they had only briefly talked to the husband on Nov 3rd and not at all since - that is what is going on.

    We had a local case near here where the husband killed his young wife in her parents' home and then set the house on fire. (There is a thread somewhere, I think his name is Scott Dunn) Anyway, he was not arrested for several months after the crime. Plus the dentist who pled gulity recently for the murder of his wife and also of a fiance from years ago was not arrested for some time....and even old Michael Peterson was not arrested immediately.

    I think they'll get him eventually. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

    The ability to obtain cell phone information is quite a tool for law enforcement. Not only does it give locations, but the absence of any calls by a person who normally is calling all the time surely adds to circumstantial evidence.

    Oh, and they have probably examined his bank records by now........

    Thanks for this, charlie - must have those records by now...

    So, if we were to assemble a 'list' of sorts (as AlwaysShocked asks), we could include, just as you say: phone records... I think this is the major task as these will support a given theory, an alibi and a timeline of sorts.

    Plus:

    Checking out friends testimony from the night before
    That darn fax (when, why, how it was sent)
    What was this 'gift' all about (sorry: all this trouble for a leather purse??)
    Gas purchases & mileage
    Recent hardware store purchases
    Missing items from house (if perp used heavy household item to murder MY)
    Hotel receipts
    External romantic involvement rumours
    The May 2005 accident...

    And ... ?

    i think LE, for the most part, is through building it's case against JY....the only thing i can think of that they might still be waiting on, is forensic evidence coming back from a lab....these last few prints they gathered in Brevard, & they MIGHT be testing that damned tooth too, now....

    I agree with Close especially knowing LE is in Brevard. In these days of modern technology I think we forget sometimes how long it takes for the forensics and other specialty testing that's going on.

    I think they may be checking financial records, and JY's earning statements. How much debt did they have?

    I would think that when the vehicles are returned they will have GPS tracking on them. If they still have his car, he may be using a family members car.

    They may be checking any papers found in the house - did MY want a divorce, and did he see an atty., and possibly pay a retainer?

    For sure they will be checking info on any computers or laptops they may have.

    They will most likely talk with her co-workers, who may know things MY may have told them about their life, or if there were problems in the marriage. Maybe she had a best friend she would tell these things to.

    Salesmen usually have an expense acct. for gas, but he could have been evasive and paid cash.

    Who did he have the meeting with - was he actually there? What time was the meeting?

    Food receipts.

    Excellent! I'm thinking the job is bigger than we can imagine and parts of it are very time consuming.

    I would bet that LE had a talk with Meredith, and got
    her to sit down with Cassidy, and let Cassidy talk about things she may have seen or heard, and I bet that conversation was recorded.

    Then...along comes Daddy, and I bet he asked Cassidy all kinds of questions. One of his biggest mistakes may have been in taking so long to arrive back home.

    I want this case solved right, not right now. The
    Justin Barber case is a good example of LE
    taking their time and doing it right. An arrest was made
    of the loving husband almost two years after
    this poor woman was shot on the beach, and he was
    convicted.
    A very interesting case. Here's the link to it from CTV:

    Perhaps this is the reason the police were willing to say it was not a random crime...Cassidy doesn't know at her age what a lie is, no reason to doubt her if they did have this conversation.

    You need to stay here Darlene !

    BeeC - I watched the Justin Baber case. He thought he was so slick - but he was convicted.

    raisincharlie - Unusual hat - but I have to tell you I love raisins. LOL

    I will be right here until this case is solved. It so much reminds me of the Laci P murder.

    I don't know how any human being could leave a small child in the same house with a dead Mother.

    It just seems it's taking forever for something to happen - but they are being thorough, and there is a lot for them to investigate.

    My Granny told me patience is a virtue - but somedays I tend to forget those words, and want things to happen NOW.

    Hi Darlene!! Didn't he tho? I loved that
    he researched gun shot wounds to the chest, then
    failed to get rid of the computer that was on.....very
    reminiscent of the SP case in the regard.

    Let's hope if it's JY, he made similar mistakes.....
