    They did slip - Sgt Colborn had no viable explanation as to why he called in TH's license plate before the car was found. As far no DNA on the key, I don't buy that SA's DNA was on it but TH's DNA was not found - the person that probably used the key almost every day.

    So, if he states he called in the plates on 11/03/05; where was the warrant?

    The Avery property is the last known location of the RAV4? Correct?

    If this officer is who is accused of planting the evidence and framing SA. Why would he make that call? He would know it's being recorded and he would already be very aware of who's license plate that was. Why would he need to verify that license plate in order to frame SA?

    To make sure it's the missing woman's vehicle he's looking at, before taking any further action? Just a guess.

    IMO, he would only make that call if he was sitting behind the car looking at the plates b/c at that time TH was still considered missing. How could that be unless either (1) the car was not on the Avery property at the time of the call and someone found the car, or (2) he was illegally on the Avery property looking at the vehicle. If (2) is the case, who removed the license plates and why was no DNA/blood found on the plate if it was SA, especially with a open cut on his right middle finger ?

    He called from his personal cell phone, not the police radio. Did he know it would be recorded? The same guy that said he didn't write a report until 8 months later because "he didn't know he had to do that"

    Why would he make that call???? Even he didn't have an answer in court LOL

    Too bad the defense couldn't subpoena his cell records, they would have been able to narrow down the time maybe.
    Or if it wasn't under suspicious circumstances, and was something routine, and he called it in when he was on duty, maybe while investigating the case (double checking his info or something), just hand over the records and say seeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    That would imply normal procedure. I have never, ever heard of plates being called in unless near them. *sorry rant*

    If Colborn's reason for calling in the plates is totally innocent (like, say, he wrote down the number earlier and was calling to confirm), then why could he NOT remember even the DAY he called it in? Why did he have no explanation for that call, aside from a shoulder shrug and "Iunno" as an answer?

    Honestly, had he had a solid answer to that question, I'd be like "aight" and not give it another thought. He couldn't remember ONE phone call in the "most important case in Wisconsin history"? It's been said here in these forums they don't investigate murders all the time, so why couldn't he remember??

    It's not about guilt or innocence; it's about the way this case was handled.

    Bingo! He is swallowing hard when the call was re-played. He knows he has one chance to prove his "call in to Lynne". lol my name too.
    Who subpoenaed those records? Was it Strang?

    He didn't even bother to come up with a lie! He just shrugged. Unreal.

    My guess is.... they were looking for calls into dispatch for those days, looking for clues, and probably part of discovery. Maybe someone calling in an accident... anything out of the ordinary that happened the days before she was found. I recall reading that it was "track 3 on the CD"

    Colborn named a detective that had called him prior to the plate call in, was this detective called to testify? I would think the defense would want to hear from him involving this plate call in.
    Why would whoever planted the vehicle remove the plates? I would think they would want the plates there for easy determination of who's car it was.

    Well... unless you called in those plates and figure it would be less suspicious if the plates weren't on the vehicle. I do think it is very possible that Colborn stumbled upon her vehicle while doing a search.... one that wasn't legal, called it in, realized the mistake he just made and took the plates off so if he was found out, he could say, pfft I didn't see it, and it didn't even have the plates on it.

    I have wondered if Colborn found the car before it was even on the Avery property...

    Many of us question the same thing.

    The problem for that theory for me is, she went missing on Halloween and wasn't reported until the 3rd. So Colborn was just lucky enough to be the first one to find the car of a just reported missing woman, who was last known to be alive at SAs. The perfect scenario for framing the man with the lawsuit just falls into his lap?

    Because throwing everything off course will be temptation for the accused.
