    Cathy Russen posted a schedule. I think that this week court days are this afternoon, tomorrow and Wed. And that is it. I'm bugging a few reporters that I message with from time to time. Maybe we can get someone in there to at least take pics.

    This case has slowed down to a crawl, and on top of that there is no live streaming, and the audio sucks a lot of the time.

    It's hard to keep interest in this case with so many various habitual problems.

    It's become like watching paint dry.

    Sigh.

    Mike could not possibly seen anyone get into the vehicle. There were two cameras and both out of sight of the driveway. Imo Mike took what Chase told him regarding the "restaurant sounds" and what LE told him about the video and made his own assumptions. Upon getting the news of the video he made a knee jerk reaction and made his post. We all know Mike has made some pretty dumb statements. He just seems like a guy who continued to insert his foot in his mouth.

    I don't recall if I said this but I provided all this info to Smith. Not sure what they'll do with it, if anything. The Pros has rested and I don't believe they can or will recall him. Maybe the defense will recall him. It's a missed opportunity but honestly, his memory sucked imo and maybe wouldn't recall. However people have brought back things I've said that I've forgot that I should have remembered.

    'No clue' how McStays' were killed, Merritt told CNN - CNN
    A few questions answered:

    "In his interview with CNN's Randi Kaye, Merritt said he and McStay were business associates who became friends. Merritt made custom indoor waterfalls and McStay would buy them, he said. They met in 2007 when McStay needed some help with a water feature."

    "There was another call from McStay's phone to Merritt the night of February 4, 2010. It came about 40 minutes after a neighbor's security camera captured the family's Isuzu pulling out of their cul-de-sac. Merritt didn't answer.
    Merritt told Kaye in January he was watching television with his then-girlfriend and he picked up the phone, looked at it and set it back down. He was tired. He called back the next day, he said."

    "There are hundreds of scenarios. I have gone over all of them in my head," he said. "Of course, I regret not picking up the phone."

    'Prime suspect' in McStay murder mystery breaks his silence | Daily Mail Online

    ‘It has been reported that I spoke to him in the evening, but that isn’t true. He did call me at 8.28pm, but I was watching a movie with my girlfriend, looked at the phone and decided not to answer.

    But they had two little ones. Would Chase be at the clubhouse, with the phone off and leave the kids to fend for themselves. Didn't Chase ask her if she was at work that night?

    This story keeps evolving and growing.

    Neither do I Missy. I don't understand any of it.

    I know CA trials are often long, and unnecessarily laborious, but I have never, ever seen a CA trial remotely like this one.

    Its become bizarre to me. No one hardly works a full day ever, and there has been more dark days than days of testimony.

    If they had continuous weeks of testimony, the guilt phase would have been over weeks ago. Imo

    What happened to the defense saying it would take 3 or 4 weeks to put on their case?

    I also recall him saying in one of the specials. ‘I don’t personally remember that call’...Chase can’t seem to keep his story straight.

    Maybe they've realized their case is imploding.

    Yes, interesting Taylor remembers that missed call being the basis of a weekend long discussion, and Cathy remembers that missed call being so significant, they even debated on calling the cops. But CM can't seem to recall it? Huh?

    Can someone tell me please--In regards to the two adults and two children caught on the surveillance video near the border on the 8th February 2010--did anyone come forward at all, to say it was them so cannot have been the McStay Family?

    No one came forward. Could have been Mexican nationals that did not realize their photo was taken. Not sure how much coverage this case received in TJ/Mexico.
