    I can't find the post that asked, but this thread looks like the right place to answer anyway.

    The question was: "Where is the Ashley Elizabeth Markham (nee Billings) statement? I can't find the transcript in the records that have been released."

    A: It is not in either the 'mega' PDF, nor in any of the individual PDFS so far as I could find. However, on an inventory that will be used for discovery purposes, the fact that Ashley Markham is indeed a Category "A" Witness is stated. A Category "A" witness is one whose statement has been taken and can be expected to be brought into evidence, HOWEVER, there is no reference to any specific interview (perhaps recorded digitally?) that was ever transcribed or released publicly to-date. In the investigator's summaries, Ashley is referred to frequently, as in helping get the safe open, answering questions as to the location of items, etc, and often these entries make note of the presence of family attorney Crystal Spencer, as well (now replaced by Robert Beasley).

    I wonder why Crystal Spencer was replaced.

    What are the specialties of Crystal Spencer and Robert Beasley?

    Perhaps Ashley's statement is one of the documents temporarily suppressed because of the protect-the-good-name motion.

    Beasley is a real estate and commercial business lawyer,among other things (see list on website).
    http://www.lawpensacola.com/jsp2598909.jsp

    Incidentally, he contracts with the county to hear (preside over) Code Enforcement Violation hearings (Special Magistrate Hearings) and possibly Zoning issue matters (sure about the former, pretty sure about the latter.)

    Somewhere I read in a statement that the auto lot was put in Blue's name but that Bud still ran it. Does anyone else remember reading that? Maybe it was Justin's statement?

    Yes, that was Justin's understanding (so it may be accurate, maybe not).

    I think in a general sense, it is emblematic of a lot of BB's deals -- he was the shadow financier behind it, and when it succeeded -- he wins; if it fails, he takes the inventory and the business, and perhaps that means less competition - he wins.

    I think you're correct, Miss Muffet. In an article I saw somewhere today, it said that the judge will make a decision on release of the video including documents.

    http://www.nwfdailynews.com/news/sto...e-release.html

    Billings family wants to stop release of murder videos (with DOCUMENTS)


    .................article at link............

    fran

    PS....in that article, it states the judge would make a decision on Thursday (yesterday), but we now know he delayed that decision until today....the purpose of using the article, however, was to show documents....fran

    I live in Pensacola and pass by Markam and Worldco every day. From what I remember, just a few days (maybe that Tuesday or Weds.) after the murders, the car lot re-opened it's gates and seem to be doing business. Worlco sits on the "side" of the car lot (off Pace Blvd) and I have seen cars there.

    She also does family law.
    She has done some high profile cases You want her on YOUR side in a divorce case
    She is also known as Crystal Collins Spencer. She has a good reputation in Pensacola as a tough attorney.

    Robert Beasley also has a very good reputation/practice/partners. He is a very nice guy and I can see why Ashley chose him.

    Neither are criminal lawyers. IMO if Ashley thought she needed criminal representation she wouldn't have chosen Robert Beasley.

    We have lots of attorneys (read: too many) in Pensacola. IMO she chose an upstanding, professional, reputable attorney. There are many of the opposite nature here as well

    Who is the best criminal attorney? Even if he's innocent, Justin needs one desperately.

    IMHO one of best criminal attorneys in Pensacola is B Beroset. We have a few others,but he'd be my first choice! This is not an advertisement, I don't have any personal experience with him

    I agree, Justin needs a good attorney desperately.
