    Makes sense....but a layperson, maybe Suzanne fits that....would fear her phone disappearing, and therefore the data on it...not necessarily knowing or relying upon a backup copy being accessible? This pen is a curve ball from outer space.

    With all due respect.....BM would surely know that this would lead right back to him if this were the scenario. There must be, imo, an emotional component to the deed.....regardless of all of the preplanning, premeditation, or whatever else led up to this....Barry's hot button, and explosive component...must have played a part, imo.

    Wanna bet that the spy pen is ultimately ruled inadmissible? This is the beginning of gutting the prosecution’s case. All testimony that would be a result of the spy pen would never see a courtroom. And a consequential witness is part of that. It was enhanced, and I imagine there will be a lot of back and forth as to whether it should only appear in its original form-which means it might be garbage.

    I can't see that being the case, any more than cellphones, or any other electronic devices being inadmissable...they are just that..devices, that pick up , receive and return data and information. In this case, it appears that the person on the other end of the device is a party to the communication. If so...there is likely a paper trail of the purchase, activation, etc.....if the point was to document...then the documentation should be more than plenty, imo.

    Colorado is a one party consent state. As such, Suzanne broke no law in recording Barry or other people.

    Unclear audio has been admitted as evidence in countless cases, and I don’t think enhanced audio would be a big deal as long as it doesn’t alter it. Usually they remove static and other artifacts.

    Even on the earliest days of the investigation, there were people reporting they had been threatened. Maybe a male was threatening SM - to keep her mouth shut before her murder. SM knew BM probably had access to her phone and could erase those messages, so she recorded them.

    Maybe the transcription of the Spy Pen is not complete yet.

    If you are a woman in an abusive relationship and you fear your husband AND your husband has the phone bill in his name and all your photos, data, etc get uploaded to the iCloud family plan where said spouse can see everything you do? Yep I’d get another device on my own too. Good for Suzanne for being so smart.

    Some context here....Salida...Maysville...this is a very, very small, close knit community...Everybody knew everybody.. If you want to keep a secret..this does not appear to be the place to make that happen. Whatever nefarious or subversive activity that BM may have been involved in....it should have been done elsewhere, imo. Anyone who has lived in these small communities..2000......6000 people, knows what I am talking about. Not only does the activity get noticed...but the newsflash about it is multiplied and magnified to the enth degree.....that is small town life...it is is the same as it been for very long time. It reminds me of the old partyline phone system......no secrets in a small town. The cops had a bumper crop of info to work with...I'll bet.

    Excellent summary @Puzzles8! IE especially was crabby and overly dramatic.

    Simply amazed by the words voluminous amount of evidence.
    Investigators have kept things close to the vest all this time.
    Kudos to them.
    Love reading all the posts from such sage people on this thread.
    MOO

    If it's not MSM or an approved source, you face being modshipped or penalties. That's all I was saying.

    Some here have been commenting that Suzanne used the spy pen to record messages from an individual to her based on what IE said above. That is not the way I interpreted it.

    It isn't clear (to me at least) that the recorded messages were between Suzanne and someone else. She may have recorded messages left on BM's phone from this individual.

    It would make sense she would record messages from someone else's phone before they were deleted.

    And kudos to Suzanne for having the kahunas to make use of such a device. We could possibly learn more than we even wanted to know. IMO

    She may have known she was recording messages on her pen.

    She may not have known she was recording messages on her pen.

    It sounds like the pen was at some remove from the phone device, if it was so faint as to be hard to make out.

    I remain highly skeptical this was Suzanne recording herself, but time will tell.

    Either way, it's likely going to prove hugely damning to Barry, and that's all that matters here.

    JMO.

    If she did hire a PI, I'll bet the Spy Pen suggestion came from the PI.

    If so I wonder who was paying for the PI? Maybe a family member? I can't imagine PI's are cheap.... Just speaks to me that her family knew there were problems and were trying to help her.

    All speculation, JMO, MOO, etc.
