    I don’t think any reporter has commented on it. Monday a reporter tweeted that one of the girls was showing BM how much her hair had grown. So that sounds like they haven’t seen each other in awhile.

    I wanted to reply to you but the thread closed.
    You asked if BM phone pinging at home Saturday afternoon was inside or outside.
    Some of it must have been outside for him to answer that he was shooting poor little critters. JMO

    Defense says Grusing asked #BarryMorphew why his phone was roaming around their property. He asked Barry if he was looking for "her" Barry says that's when he was shooting chipmunks. Defense argues Grusing testified that he doesn't know if the phone was bouncing around or still.

    If BM arrived home and, per the phone data, moved around the exterior of the house (looking for chipmunks to shoot :rolleyes: ) does that suggest he didn't go inside the home until after coming across SM in the backyard sunning herself and sending selfies?

    Because that might suggest (maybe) that the gun with the tranquilizer darts was either stashed outside the home (seems unlikely to me) or he had it in his vehicle with him (seems more likely to me). Or else he had to go inside to get it at some point before shooting SM.

    MOO

    Personally the most incriminating data to me, as someone asked yesterday, is the detailed truck data about doors opening, when it's in gear vs park, etc. There is still a lot of that data missing and I hope it will provide good information when it becomes known.

    One observation after reading @Niner 's great summary -- his truck arrives home at 2:44pm. At 4:44pm the doors open and close. At 5:33pm the truck's system is rebooted.

    So, the truck gets rebooted and yet the data from less than an hour earlier is still visible? How little time was "blanked out" by this reboot then? Or maybe the rebooter thought it would erase some data but it actually didn't?

    Again, MOO

    After hearing about the tranquilizer dart I wondered where he might have gotten a sedative to use with it. I wondered if maybe firefighters carried some sort of tranquilizing device when the fought wildfires to protect them against bears etc. In going down the google rabbit hole I came across this news article : Is Ketamine the New Police Weapon Against Black Lives? and within that article was this sentence: "In Colorado, 90 fire departments and emergency medical agencies can legally use ketamine to treat people who are agitated or aggressive." I wish there was a way to see if the firehouse that Barry belonged to was one of them!

    Oh, great find.

    That and the dart 4 pack where one is missing will be able to give LE some idea of the dose and drug that was in the dart he used.

    Poor SM. What a level of horror this is.

    I also wondered about ketamine. Also, I remembered about a young man in CO who died in 2019 after first responders gave him ketamine. Sad story.

    I’ve wondered, too, why a dart with tranquilizer. Surely BM could’ve just gotten ahold of some type of medication and “spiked” her food or drink one day if he wanted to? I do remember he is anti-meds/drugs but one would think that if he’s ok with murder he’s ok with bending his own rules :rolleyes:

    Just thinking out loud here.

    No blood, no fight. Simplifies things if she is incapacitated. He could drown Suzanne, strangle her, remove her from the premises and kill her elsewhere. If he listens to true crime, as it appears he does, he may have been concerned about signs of a struggle. Plus he’s a hunter. Subdue his prey.I am not yet on board with him chasing Suzanne around after he darted her, unless the investigators are able to show additional evidence besides the cell phones data.

    It was asked in previous thread but I didn’t see a response. How is it the defense can use different cell phone data software and not disclose it ahead of time to prosecution?

    That’s shocking.

    It’s been decades since I’ve worked in the veterinary field, but iirc ketamine was kept in the drug safe and all doses used were logged. Missing ketamine should show up on records.

    First thing I thought of when I saw ketamine was Elijah. That was so sad. It’s spurred a new law at least that only trained EMT’s can administer it.

    Colorado ketamine bill signed into law, limits police influence on sedative's use | FOX31 Denver

    I wonder, too what BM might have used.

    You have to be a vet or someone requiring a prescription.
    You would think he would have dumped the other 3 and their box.
     
  20. Because she was "prey" to him? In his mind she had been dehumanized, especially because he knew divorce was imminent. He enjoyed/took a special pleasure in killing her in that premeditated manner.
