You can tell in this video that she is in custody. It gives a better look at the two of them.

Thank you and how are you tonight?

For the first time I have a glimmer of hope that this case will end in justice for these children.

Here is another news report. It explains more of how LE decided to use the grand jury.

Thank you. In this article it says the two that did not appear when subpoenaed are men.

So I wonder what role the man and woman in shackles today have in this case.

I think it is remarkable that a GJ is being used. They can have two different functions. 1. To indict someone or not or 2. to be used as an investigative tool. No one can refuse to testify in a GJ proceeding.

I wonder what kind of record these two have and where they live. Do we have anything on them yet?

Larry Smith and Windy Espinoza were the ones brought to the grand jury today. I searched for them in the Offenders Lookup and found nothing.

Yes, I heard it, but it may have not come from the elevator but rather out in the hall.

He has no teeth- or so it appears. Meth users frequently lose their teeth.

The three earlier guys were described as suspects. These two are witnesses-witnesses in shackles. So two young guys- 18 and 19, and three people in their 30's ...Don't know where this is going, but I am hopeful.

Here's whitepages.com for Windy:

Okay, I am really trying to get caught up without asking to many questions but, the man and woman that were brought into the GJ today, are not the two that had arrest warrants issued for them?

Me too!

If the article is correct I wonder if they have even tracked them down yet? Did they get the subpoena to testify and then immediately left the area? If so, why?

(This is the things I would like to know lol)

While I'm glad we finally have some names and faces that are being questioned in the Grand Jury, I wouldn't put a lot of hope in charges being filed. There is an unsolved murder in the small town next to where I live (it is listed on the OSBI's web page as unsolved murder). A woman was found shot numerous times in her back yard in broad daylight about 12 years ago. A grand jury was called to really question her boyfriend at the time (a past county commissioner who served time in federal prison for the county commissioner scandal of the 1980's). He was later convicted for lying to the Grand Jury about owning a gun when he said he didn't own a gun. Other than that.... the crime is still unsolved. I think the prosecutor called the grand jury with the OSBI's input to try to put some pressure on these witnesses. Their stories just don't jive for some reason!

Windy Espinosa, 34, and Larry Peyton Smith, 34, testified Thursday before a state grand jury that is helping state agents look into the tragic shootings near Weleetka.

The two were arrested after they failed to show up in court Wednesday. The grand jury's judge allowed them to go home after they finished testifying Thursday.
