    Abby & Libby - The Delphi Murders - Richard Allen Arrested - #180

    Both, I think. I suspect they would be as interested in what his atty was saying to RA. OK, next you start making CSA confessions to inmates and eating doo doo. No really... No seriously....

    Abby & Libby - The Delphi Murders - Richard Allen Arrested - #180

    Sure, but how many meters was it? :p Do you think the state hired lip readers to transcribe confidential privileged attorney/client conversations? Or maybe less formal, like: This is what they said...

    Ten inches would be within hearing distance for sure. Ten feet, probably. Wouldn't that all get sorted out in depositions?

    True! And likewise, he could be innocent and rambling on about hallucinations due to psychosis. I suspect we will all have a better idea soon.

    Well, I would learn more than I know now.

    Abby & Libby - The Delphi Murders - Richard Allen Arrested - #180

    I'd say a sound defense strategy would be to do the opposite of what's being implied. I'd sit RA down after learning he confessed and either help him work on a plea agreement or have him 'splain the how and why of the confessions so I can properly defend him going to trial. But I'm not a lawyer...

    Great post! One near certainty I have is that we will still be missing mountains of facts and associated context long after this trial is over. Or if it will ever be over. Some cases are like a bad penny.

    IA IA - David Schultz, 53, Wall Lake, 21 November 2023 #3

    Out of the blue a friend of mine told me yesterday If David Schultz's body is in a field, it'll be found soon. Having just returned from a day trip through Iowa she was surprised how much ground has already been worked.

    IOW throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Gotcha! I suspect they are just making a record. Who can say what an appellate court will think? It is often mentioned that the PCA didn't include everything the P has. I wouldn't say it's safe to assume that the defense has no way of mitigating the...

    Abby & Libby - The Delphi Murders - Richard Allen Arrested - #180

    Everyone involved has egos, from JG to Nick to RA. Even some of us :eek: I'm really curious if this would be a violation of some sort. If that's what's really going on it would be despicable to put us all through this. And I can't see violating human decency like that doing anything but...

    I would be interested in seeing what actual attorneys have to say, but I just don't believe that it's SOP for lawyers to manipulate remorseful clients who admit guilt into lying and pleading innocence just to rack up $100 per hour legal fees. And it seems highly unethical and possibly illegal to...

    Abby & Libby - The Delphi Murders - Richard Allen Arrested - #180

    Why? Are there numerous cases of lawyers persueding defendants who admit they are guilty to lie and plead innocence? Maybe a mob lawyer? I never heard of such a thing happening but I don't get out much. That just seems unethical to me.

    Abby & Libby - The Delphi Murders - Richard Allen Arrested - #180

    Again, if I'm on the jury, this is the kind of thing that will bury RA. Isn't it curious that it seems like a logical defense strategy to the people who are already convinced that RA is the killer; while those who remain unconvinced see no logic in it at all? Wouldn't a sound defense strategy do...

    Sounds suicidal. And gross.

    Abby & Libby - The Delphi Murders - Richard Allen Arrested - #180

    IOW, while the D might have tried to capitalize on the "self-discrediting" bogus confessions, they're just hoping no one notices when recordings of RA making non-bogus confessions are played in court? This is the strategy?

    The fact that they are confessions shows guilt towards RA. But we need details.

    Seems plausible. We really need the info about the other confessions, and a bunch of timeline details.

    Abby & Libby - The Delphi Murders - Richard Allen Arrested - #180

    It's all intertwined - the mystery, the horror, the longing to know who is reaponsible and make them pay. And then you add in all this other insanity. This close to a double murder trial it's crazy that we spend more time talking about what the lawyers did and didn't do than what the accused did...

    Abby & Libby - The Delphi Murders - Richard Allen Arrested - #180

    If DD & RA turn out to be bowling buddies it wouldn't surprise me at this point. If you look at the role DD played in the Jesse Snider case you can see that he's not just a helpful friendly park ranger. I suspect he was actively part of the investigation since this would be an all-hands-on-deck...

    Abby & Libby - The Delphi Murders - Richard Allen Arrested - #180

    This is where we disagree. Drastically. I wonder if we will ever learn why this was so catastrophically handled. For starters - taking five years to do the most basic and obvious job in crime investigation - clearing the people known by name to be near the scene at the time of the crime. How...
