    So I wonder if the defence will explain why Chase told Dugal someone else was feeding the dogs and he knew this because of the movement of the water dish?

    He didn't mention any of this in his interrogation

    Indeed in his interrogation, he claimed it was him that fed the dogs, and him that moved the water dish. But I guess by that time with the murders discovered, it would no longer do to pretend the McStays went on holiday :rolleyes:

    Not really sure how JM came upon some of those involved in his business? I did read Joey & DK were surfing buddies that met around 2001, so they had a bit of history together. But Merritt IMO honed in on JM at some home show which is what a predator/opportunist does. People with a kind and generous heart like Joey get pulled in by that type sadly. I'm not sure who supposedly all the "others" are though? All IMO.

    Believe or not, I am a law-abiding citizen, and for all I have learned about CM, his past, nothing convinces me that he is the kind of evil and scary monster as some here have been trying to portray him. I would have no problem being in the presence of him. There are some other characters in this case whom I would not feel comfortable meeting.

    Some people get blinded by love or infatuated with the bad boy image. Others are just plain gullible and make excuses for bad behavior.

    Chase would have been the only roughian, imo. Joseph only saw the good in people even though he knew Chase to cut corners. Chase was a manipulator. Got people to stay working for him even though he would stiff them on pay. Got many people to invest with him, even though they became his "piggy bank". Now he's duped his own family to vouch for him.

    BBM: Which makes it even worse that DK would threaten to harm Joey and his family!! Very sad! :(

    I think we have to take that story in context. They had been good friends and DK would of been very p***ed off that JM was cutting him out of the business, so JM probably felt bad and cut DK a deal as he was paying him money. It happens that good friends can have a falling out.
    And people stating that DK stole money from JM has yet to be verified. Even JM's mother SB didn't have anything to say to media about it when she was asked.

    Besides Merritt and DK (who's criminal record began later IIRC) who else was there that one would consider as being a rough crowd?

    Just another inconvenient piece of evidence that sinks him IMO. Prosecution should have a field day in closings.

    That's exactly what i was wondering about in my previous post.
    And it was Merritt that inserted himself into JM's life the most. Like a parasite.

    Patrick McStay's Book "McStays, Taken Too Soon"

    From around 22:50:
    January 2009 Big fallout between Joey and DK
    Summer 2009 DK "more or less bought out" by Joey
    Summer/Fall 2009 DK started his own company called Nexxus, "and he had the nerve to want Joey to partner in on that with him! And he asked Joey for help!"

    Some have tunnel vision.

    CM didn't threaten at all.

    Unfortunately Joey is DEAD at the hands of Merritt so he's not able to tell us about the threats.

    MSM articles say neighbor’s fed the dogs too. In the Tim Miller video, Summer’s brother says MM kept returning to the house to check on the dogs. So others besides CM were caring for the dogs.

    I didn't see this one posted, sorry if it was and I missed it!

    We will definitely have our camera there for closings HOWEVER, the ability to live stream vs. uploading the video will depend on when closings are going to happen. I'm hoping to know more after today.

    Mike went there once on the 13th and returned on the 15th with the police. He took the dogs home with him on the 15th.
