    Now I'm really anxious to see what comes out of the attorney dropping DM as a client. I hope someday we hear an explaination/reason.
    Could it be possible that he is the source of the "tip" that led LE to Abraham's body? Maybe she told him, and he told someone to "tell LE".
    Once the body was found, he may connected to the "tip" and therefore can't represent her.

    Maybe he *found* something while representing her that made him think Abraham was buried there and he felt *morally* obligated to have someone look.. If there was no body, no harm foul, but if there was, he knew he would have to drop her as a client.

    I'm guessing this lawyer has a soul, unlike DM.

    amytlake, that's an interesting thought.

    I hope you're right and this lawyer has a conscience and a good soul. This case seems to have so many people weaved in, it's hard to know the good from the bad, IMO.

    RIP Abraham, prayerfully LE will get to the bottom of your investigation and make the world a little safer for everyone. Prayers with the family of Abraham.

    The article breaks my heart. E. Walker sounds like such a lovely woman and she was trusting but also smart. She encouraged Abraham to get educated so as not to be taken advantage of. I wish she'd never had to know DM.

    The article also identifies "Big Man", I think it was in one of the earlier articles where it said no one knew his real name (AS may have loaned him money, IIRC?) I wonder if DM was providing LE with AS's financial information and was throwing names out there to deflect any suspicion away from herself? I'm praying that all the people AS helped along the way will come forward and help with the case as much as they can. Abraham deserves justice. JMO.

    In regards to the questions about Stitzel being allowed to remove files from the property, I was about to reply that those files should be considered "work product" and should be exempt from the search warrant and/or discovery. Then I read the above post and hope LE at least went through the file labels and disallowed anything to be removed as it pertains to this case or any of the people surrounding this case.

    Though I knew that so much of what we researched here, pointed to the facts, as they are... I find it so very difficult to accept that Abraham was done this way... that he is no longer with us... that his family and friends, and all of us here, have to go through this pain... and that his children will grow up without him... that beautiful baby boy and his mother... I love that picture... that his Mama will somehow find Peace within her faith and the comfort of many friends, despite the loss of her wonderful son...

    I do know, that we have been deeply touched, though with extreme pain... we've been touched by an Angel... Abraham Lee Shakespeare! From a beautiful man... now a beautiful Angel.

    I apologize for my having not been here too much lately, as I had said... I had a surgery thing to take care of. It was far more complicated than I had expected... but that's ok... my gratitude for love, life, laughter, and even all realms of pain... now exceeds anything I've ever known in all my years.

    Thank you Websleuth partners... Thank You Tricia, and your staff!!!!!!!!

    With Love,
    ~I aM I aNd yoU aRe yoU~


    wanttohelp, where are ya? Find comfort in knowing that we helped, and that we love you! I'll be back!

She has no fear from what it seems and feels as though she will be able to outsmart everybody. Also, from what we have seen she is perfectly comfortable playing the victim. The sad part is, she will probably be just fine behind bars, she'll just fill her emptiness by manipulating those around her, but for far lesser stakes.

    The amazing part to me is how bad she is at the con, like when reading her "son's" posts, the language got more elementary and the spelling regressed the more this "person" posted. trying to act as though all the previous posts came from a child. It was so obvious, yet if this was her, she has been running scams for years. Not all that successfully, but she doesn't seem to get any real punishment either. This case better change that...should she end up being responsible.

    I think that her ex-husband has a role in this given her responses to any mention of him. For the most part, she has said everybody else is to blame (well except for the sheriff) for everything but got very defensive when his name was brought up, always stating how much of a straight shooter he is. I am curious about this, although don't know how to interpret it, just feel as though it is important. So I guess my question to all you guys is at this point, what role do you think the POI had in the murder? Were they the mastermind, or was there somebody else connected to them pulling the shots?

    I know that all this has been discussed, but would love to know what people are thinking now that the most important question about this case has been answered. I apologize for rambling, but this person in question just dumbfounds me, is there any explanation for their actions other than just pure evil?
    Well, let me just say, I knew her ex husband personally. This was approx 20 years ago though. We hung out with the same group of people, and spent time together as friends. Good friends. I haven't really talked to him in years, other than just a brief catch up email awhile back when i found him again (I had no clue any of this was going on) . Back when we were all friends, he was one of the sweetest guys you ever wanted to be around. He was fun, and just a good ole country boy. He comes from a good family. To my knowledge, he's still the same. Works hard for what he has and is a good upstanding citizen. I hope and pray he had nothing to do with the whole thing. If I had to speculate, I'd say absolutely not.
    This is why I became so interested in this case. Cause it hit pretty close to home, not only in my city, but because of him.
    I know their divorce was final last summer....but I think they'd been separated for a couple/few years. Not sure on that.

    Regarding "ethics", if this attorney worked with anyone associated with the case (for example, if he worked alongside HDS or even with AS when he got in trouble) would that be an "ethical reason" to drop DM as a client?

    I'm curious to know his reasons for dropping DM. I do wonder if it's possible that he may have been a part of something that will eventually tie into this case or cases that may arise from it.

    At first when I read that he dropped her as a client, I felt a little apprehensive about him. Now, I'm not sure I feel that way because I don't know a lot about being a criminal lawyer and wonder what types of things can get in the way of presenting a successful defense?

    JMO and just my own questions, too.
    EXCELLENT QUESTIONS!!!!
    And the points you mention certainly seem plausible. I wonder if it will ever come out the reasons why? My guess is probably not.

    I think a civil suit would have to be filed to gain any money back??? Not sure. I am certainly not up on the legal processes when it comes to something such as this!

    As far as why an arrest has not been made yet:

    "There will be an arrest but the worst thing we can do is rush the arrest and lose the case," he said. "We don't want to arrest a single person; we want to arrest all the people in this and it just takes time."

    Wanted to give you a quick welcome tigergal71. Welcome to Websleuths!

    I am hoping that DM's ex husband isn't involved in any of this. Even DM said he was a good guy, if I recall correctly. My opinion of DM is not very high, so I can't help but wonder if her ex is just one more person who fell victim to her 'charms'.

    Justice for Abraham!

    Thanks so much for the welcome!! It's been a crazy few days reading everything and learning all the awesome information you guys have pulled together on this case. I trust that LE will do their jobs well, and that the perps in this case will be CAUGHT.
    And I do believe you hit it on the head with what you said....He fell for her 'charms'. But, 20 years can change a person drastically. I just cannot imagine that the girl he married was that messed up in the head. I am hoping that came much later, and with no involvement of his.
