- Reaction score
I'm coming to the conclusion that Adam Baker confessed very early in the investigation and the deal he has is that he co-operates with the police, then after EB is convicted he will be charged with and plead guilty to an agreed upon list of crimes he did do (chopping up a body and hiding a murder? child neglect? cheque frauds?) and in return he gets to go free until his trial and be transferred straight back to serve his time in an Australian prison and not be in an American prison for more than a month or two.
At this stage it just seems to be the explanation that is most consistent with him still being free while Elisa has been charged. If you turn your attention away from his every twitch or grimace, and to the deal that must have been cut, I think it all becomes clear. Especially since he's centering all his public relations effort around appealing to Australians rather than Americans.
It's an interesting theory to contemplate, however I can't see how the LE would possibly allow him to roam free (admittedly without a passport) if they had any indication that he was in some way involved (especially if he had confessed). Add to this that he is apparently an illegal resident. And also, that they have kept EB in jail all this time. It just seems too inconsistent to me.
I can assure you that if he's found guilty of anything such as dismemberment or disposal, after that 60 Minutes interview, that there is not a single Australian that will let it pass. Any dreams of a homecoming to live out his days would be lost. His time in jail would have to be in isolation as such crimes against children are not tolerated (no doubt it is the same in the USA jail system).
And I want to add that I think KB would have his bits!
