Still impatiently waiting ...
Driving to Idaho to camp doesn’t seem that “normal”, especially being that they both already lived nearby numerous camping spots.
Right?! No time to redact the AA but plenty of time to lurk
You and me both. I think it's fair to speculate that it was entirely planned by Barry. But I want to know the exact conditions. Part of me thinks that there was never any plan for the daughters to return for Mother's Day.
There were legal bans against interstate non-essential travel at the time, so that tells us something about whoever organized and paid for it.
I am going to bet tons of internet donuts that Barry organized and paid for it (and may have had help organizing it).
One small point: the Judge did not agree “they had the facts to nail him”. The Judge determined that IF THE SWORN FACTS WERE PROVEN TO BE TRUE AT TRIAL, they will have nailed him.
I don’t think Les Gals Legals need our help.
@MassGuy good to hear your to cents! Longtime coming but it happened. The scales of Justice will balance for Suzanne also.IMO
Yup, it was only a matter of when. It was clear all along this was a homicide investigation, and Barry was the prime suspect.
I started getting excited when the DA said she was going to be speaking with Lauren, and appeared on Mike’s show.
It seemed like a victory lap, just in reverse. Then the shoe dropped, right on Barry’s neck.
Exactly, as the old joke goes, they don’t don’t say that about you and me!
I doubt they need our help either but I’m reasonably certain they have a paralegal or two here. It’s certainly been done before. IMO
Well, we at the halfway point now. BM has been imprisoned for 7 weeks, and the Prelim Hearing starts in 7 weeks.
I’ve never followed a case where we knew so little at this stage. I’ve also never followed a case that’s going to have this much information.
We’re going to go from knowing practically nothing, to having just about every question answered that can be answered.
Those 7 weeks can’t come fast enough.
Normally these hearings involve reporters relaying the evidence via Twitter, but with these Covid rules in effect, I think there’s a decent chance that we’ll actually be able to watch this thing on WebEx.
Cross your fingers!
But Fallis case was lost by either corrupt or incompetent police detectives.
They went with Fallis statement that his wife committed suicide in front of him and conducted no interviews, no gun residue swabbing and no evidence collection.
Years later at trial it was possible to make witnesses look like fools.
"not relevant to the Court's finding of probable cause" does not equal "irrelevant and/or inadmissable". It is specific to probable cause only, I would think. It doesn't eliminate redacted items from the trial entirely. I would expect anything redacted to be objected to by the defense if and when referenced or introduced in the trial...and the DA will need to present reasons to overrule in order to include certain facts. Being a circumstantial case, there are likely "circumstantial facts" redacted from AA that will find their way into the trial because they are relevant to timelines, physical and forensic evidence, testimony, etc. JMO. This is a case of connecting the dots. The defense wants fewer dots....the DA wants more dots.
I agree with this....but with premeditation...there seems to be a need for motive, i.e. girlfriend, money or simply a new life. While motive does not in and of itself need to be proven, the act of planning to kill requires some specific reasoning to explain its existance. A 'heat of the moment" wouldn't include the same ingredients, imo..
BM was all about money. I would think his financials would not only be dissected for forensics....but overall, his lifestyle and habits can be profiled in his financials. I an interested to see if that "profile" changed. Was Barry spending money on different things in the recent couple of months prior to disappearance? Was there a significant change in the amount of money in that profile? We know that BM was planning a move which likely expedited the arrest....but did that move actually start prior to SM's disappearance? The profile, and any changes, would go to that question.
Always interesting to see how suspects change their appearance after a crime. Looking at photos of BM over the years...he has had a slight beard or stache...usually during a vacation, but largely, BM had a clean shaven face. Since SMs disappearance, the facial hair has increased. This is a sign of hiding from the outside world. Many suspects wear a baseball cap, when they didn't prior to the crime..(both Petersons, Chris Watts, etc...) I was looking for BM to start wearing a baseball cap, but that didn't happen....he chose facial hair instead.
Oh dear, that just reminded me that trials will not be streamed in CO post COVID IIRC. I wish that these COVID exceptions on media/public access during trials lasted post COVID.
There were no interstate travel restrictions between Colorado, Utah and Idaho during covid although I don't know if it has been totally confirmed they were in Idaho...totally possible it's a pretty easy cruise across Colorado, cut the corner of Utah and into Idaho. And not difficult to find spots to camp outside of state or federal parks even during covid. It is quite common with nonurban kids in Colorado to go camp, raft, hangout....it's what they do for fun especially when the college semester ends.
