I believe the prosecution did turn over the info to the defense about the glovebox DNA Partial Match to SA’s in CODIS. It’s a defense allegation without merit or proof that this info wasn’t turned over to them in a timely manner. I haven’t heard the prosecution’s side/counter/explanation. Yet.Agreed, but technically the prosecution had an obligation to turn over this information. In my opinion the prosecution were given a gold mine and have done a terrible job, starting with that (maybe true) scenario of BM chasing SM around the house with a tranquilizer dart. The imagery used bordered on ridiculous, which the defense seized on by saying that the data shows BM ran through walls. MOO
Again, imo per LE sop and due diligence, the foreign DNA sample was tested and is useless/irrelevant to the case, no matter how much the DC tries to spin it. Unfortunately, it seems the insignificant touch DNA is being blown out of proportion and practically taken on
a life of its own for some, just as DC intended. Confuse, distract, deflect away from the facts of the case and that the totality of the evidence in this case points to one suspect/person and one person only-their client BM. And they know it. IMO, they are desperate and grasping at straws.
I agree the prosecution was handed a goldmine.
A new DA, LS, was elected during month 9 of the investigation, in a case that has massive amounts of discovery, yes an absolute goldmine of evidence against BM. After careful and thorough review of the case file and all evidence to date that LE had amassed, the DA filed the correct charges and convinced the Judge there was enough probable cause which the Judge agreed/signed the AW authorizing the apprehension of the correct perpetrator, imo.
I respectfully disagree that the prosecution have done a “terrible job”, which I assume you’re referring to their performance in the hearings. To me they haven’t done terrible in the hearings more like, for lack of a better word, disjointed? in their presentation at times. Sure, I would like to have heard them assertively counter/verbally raise an objection to some things at the hearings to quash DC allegations i.e., “Your Honor, Mr. Morphew’s arrest was not a fraud on the court!” and explain why. “Your Honor, the foreign DNA was tested and followed up on and has no relevance to this case, is not exculpatory evidence to Mr. Morphew!” and explain why. They might not have been prepared for the defense to misrepresent that stuff but I’m sure they will at one of the next hearings when they are able get a word in edgewise in between all the defense posturing, blustering, deflection and wah, wah, wah our poor client the victim (not!) is being railroaded, and the victim blaming/shaming of THE REAL VICTIM-SUZANNE MORPHEW. Nauseating. Also, maddening in the PH’s a few months ago, the DC asking the wrong questions of LE witnesses who weren’t responsible for certain aspects of the investigation trying to make them appear inept and neglectful. Classic D tactic and expected, and which future jury will see right through, imo.
IMO, it’s not that the prosecution doesn’t have a strong case against BM, they absolutely without a doubt, do. They just need a little help with organizing and fine tuning their presentation in a clear, concise manner and shutting down the grandstanding, smoke and mirror expert, hot shot DC who are absolutely good at doing what they do. They are a presence, highly skilled, at deflecting, trying to bamboozle and if allowed, will steal the show, so to speak. IMO, the Judge has done a good job of not allowing that to happen, quashing, and keeping the D (somewhat) under control.
Back to the prosecution needing a little help fine tuning. A silver lining and music to my ears if I heard right lol, the office of the 4th Judicial District are going to be helping the 11th District prosecution team organize the evidence, etc. The 4th is the district of the former superstar DA, Dan May and current DA, Michael Allen who anyone following the Gannon Stauch (RIPxo) case
is familiar with and imo, very astute, professional and impressive DA who I can definitely see going places and doing really great things in his career. IMO the 4th district helping this prosecution team out/assisting will be huge asset, and have utmost confidence that the 11th Judicial District prosecution team will be better and stronger for it. Much respect and huge props to them for offering their assistance.
