    I agree completely. This young lady, who is grieving a significant loss in her life, has been absolutely trashed all over social media and has received death threats. I'm glad to see she's getting some advice from one of the best criminal attorneys in Birmingham. I also don't think Tommy Spina would represent that LE told him there is no evidence that she was involved unless that had actually occurred.

    Thanks for sharing. That's one thing that nagged at me, that even if they didn't talk at all before one of them left that they'd communicate somehow about the ride.
    If I saw anyone I had driven leaving for any reason I'd at least text them "how are you getting home?"
    Also, we don't know how close Paighton and this coworker are, but the fact they met at a house and rode together indicates to me that they were friendlier than the usual "going out for drinks" after work.

    But there's certainly a lot that happened that we don't know, and nothing we do know definitively points to *any* POI.

    The day I start trusting the words that come out of any attorney's mouth....well, that will be the day. It wouldn't shock me if the statement wasn't a put up or shut up challenge to LE to bring out what they know about E's involvement. Also...nothing like the word "scintila" to stick in the mind of a potential juror as well.

    Still not buying it either, something is off , but if there weren't two heavy set Black men BH LE should make that clear, I mean QUICKLY and I still think the lack of info or something on these two is TELLING .

    I really don't have an opinion one way or another yet about this person but I agree wholeheartedly, that she most certainly needs legal representation right now. Hiring a lawyer will always look suspicious to some, but it's the smartest thing you can do if you're being accused of something illegal, whether you did it or not.

    Carol...this would be the same reporter who said PH was wrapped in “sheets”, which, if she was attempting to quote from the earlier interview, we know “cloth” was the word used.

    Did we ever confirm that “sheets” was in fact her loose interpretation, or did we ascertain that this was new information?

    Whew. I just got back here, glad I missed it. :)
    I’ll be glad when LE clears up some of the mystery, this case pushes a lot of buttons.

    I get busy and miss a day and I’m two threads behind. I’m not even sure what the discussion is right now, a friend hiring an attorney and getting death threats. I don’t know from what I’ve read if we are talking about the co-worker she went out with or the friend who got the text from PH that something wasn’t right, she was in trouble.

    Anywho, I don’t have time to read the past two threads. Just glad discussion is still open for PH and getting justice for her is important now.

    And I’m glad we have mods that make us follow the rules. Too bad we can’t just do that on our own. IMO

    Given that they were unable to determine the COD from the autopsy, and in light of PH's history, I suspect LE believes she OD'ed. While someone may be criminally responsible for burying her body and/or providing her with the drugs, I doubt they think there are two men (or anyone else) who intentionally killed her. This is my opinion only.

    Weird thought, can you get DNA off drugs? If someone touched heroin or fentanyl, would they leave their DNA on it? Just wondering.

    I doubt they think so too, which why I feel they should come right out and tell the public whether or not they should be concerned for their own safety. They haven't said either way. Imo

    It’s not just her parents, I cannot find one comment by anyone who knew Paighton, including close friends, that imply in any way this is her character, only the opposite.
    I know addicts that don’t do drugs with random people, or in “trap houses”, or turn tricks for drugs.
    I know addicts who are “cautious”, as Paighton’s friend described her, they have a close inner circle they use with and are too paranoid about protecting their lifestyle to veer from that.
    These addicts I know are middle to upper class, money gives them some protection and privileges in their addiction that keep them from the desperation to get drugs that would lead them to leave with strangers to do drugs in a trap house. Drugs, including heroin, are regularly available in nice towns and lily white suburbs.
    moo
    Maybe I’m wrong and Paighton had a reputation and history of running with a crowd outside of her community and hanging out in abandoned houses doing drugs, but I don’t see any evidence of that.

    Thank you for addressing this about Paighton and addicts in general.
