    Great post T!

    I see a large practical issue for the defence where they need to evidence how all this was working, but can't place the same in evidence.

    e.g the cheque blanks - where are they?

    If Chase does not testify, then this can't be explained. And again the obvious inference is he destroyed evidence. If he lost them or whatever, he needs to tell the jury.

    My wild speculation is that they were thinking about going there and this gave Chase the idea.

    Thank you! I love simple facts. Again, IMO, incredibly incriminating evidence. I haven't previously followed this case so I don't have any theories. So far, I'm convinced by what I'm reading from the trial.

    Anyone have any guesses if Merritt will testify?

    If he doesn't - he's stuffed. IMO

    If he does - he's stuffed. IMO

    So I think on balance he's stuffed, so he might. He's a gambling man after all.
