Has anyone else read the comments on this article? The last one is made by someone pro-"Wendi-the-victim" point of view, by my reading. Reference to "trophy wife" and other denigrating statements against Dan.
I've run in to a poster saying very similar things on Youtube. Not as much as championing for Wendi, but really slamming Dan.

Ugh. Wendi is a lawyer, so by most people’s standards that is very well educated and she did work… Tallahassee is honestly a great place to live. Wendi just didn’t like it.
Edited to add: Wendi had a life that most people would envy even, IMO. She could have just gotten a divorce if she wasn’t being treated how she wanted and that’s it. She was not in an abusive marriage and she is not a victim in this story.

As a FSU grad, I agree that Tally is a great place to live!

On page 13 there's a record of a meeting at Matsuri listed right under the record of the meeting at Dolce Vita. Anyone know what it's of?
The transcript from the KM/SG pre-trial motions hearing indicates that it was a meeting between CA and HA, and that Cappleman agreed not to introduce the recording into evidence.

Anybody see the FanciFiction YTs released today?
One has CA saying he has "a ton guns."
With that nugget, and knowing CA had been anticipating being visited upon and had stated he was willing to defend himself, LE must have gone in with overwhelming force.
Do we still not have any info on how his arrest at his home went down?
I imagine early am with a SWAT team surrounding the house, breaking down the door - but that's just my guess.
Thoughts?

It was early morning and from the mugshot he looked to have been awoken from slumber.

According to the news report linked below, CA was arrested by the FBI on Thursday morning, 4/21/22, at his home without incident. IMO, this account does not scream SWAT or drama to me.

However, it does appear to me that CA must have been detained at an undisclosed facility between 4/21 - 4/25 since I found no record of him being booked at Broward County Jail, and instead, according to both Leon County Sheriff's Office and VineLink, he was booked on Monday, 4/25/22 at Leon County jail. And searching Broward County -- I come up with nothing....

4/21/22

Charlie Adelson was booked, according to Broward County Jail records, on charges of first degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and solicitation of murder. The 45-year-old was taken into custody "without incident" Thursday morning at his home by the FBI.

[..]

Details of the crimes he is accused of committing were not included in booking documents. Adelson's lawyers declared his innocence.

[..]

State Attorney Jack Campbell said Adelson was indicted Wednesday by a Leon County Grand Jury in connection with Markel's July 2014 execution-style shooting in Tallahassee, which investigators say was a murder-for-hire financed by his in-laws.

"The law-enforcement team behind this continuing investigation will not rest until justice is delivered to every person involved in this terrible crime," Campbell wrote in a prepared statement.

[..]

Adelson, a Fort Lauderdale dentist, and his mother, Donna Adelson, have been implicated in Markel’s murder from the start. Prosecutors said they did not have enough evidence to charge them — which changed this week.

[..]

Enhanced Dulce Vida video leads to arrest​

The state attorney said newly enhanced audio from a secret recording done at a South Florida restaurant led to Adelson’s arrest. He also lauded the extensive work of investigators.

“That’s the new evidence,” Campbell told the Democrat. “We’ve been able to hear things from the Dulce video that we weren’t able to hear until this most recent enhancement. We’ve never stopped working it and we appreciate the efforts of all of our law enforcement partners.”

And yet another source cites CA's arrest by US Marshals on 4/21 and booked in Broward County jail.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — The former brother-in-law of a Florida State University law professor who was shot to death at his Tallahassee home eight years ago has been arrested in South Florida in connection with his killing.

Charlie Adelson was arrested Thursday morning by U.S. marshals and booked into the main Broward County jail. He faces charges of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and solicitation to commit murder.
