    he courtroom is now being shown clips of the recording we heard last week. Throughout this, Nelson asks Bullis to clarify parts of the conversation that are unintelligible. @WCIA3

    Eventually BC gets around to telling TB the details. He takes her hand, traces the number 13 in her palm. Tries to gauge her reaction. "I felt like I was being studied and observed," she testifies

    wow- this.. he did suspect her, looks like
    When the concert was about to begin, she says she went back to the bathroom to turn off the recorder out of concern for battery life. She also emailed the FBI, then immediately deleted those emails. She says when she went back out, BC went through her phone

    wow, this
    1. Bullis says she's even more scared now. When she went to turn the recorder back on, she says she texted one of her housemates asking them to make sure Brendt wouldn't be allowed to go home with her. @WCIA3

      She says during the concert, he pointed out a woman near them, saying she'd be an ideal victim. At the end, she says he didn't clap like people normally do during applause-- she says they were long, slow, spaced stacatto claps @WCIA3

      TB says BC opened up the notepad application on her phone and typed four lines, deleting each line as soon as he typed it: "It was me. She was number 13. She's gone. Forever."

    1. At this point in the recording, BC is hungry, suggesting they go somewhere to eat. He suggests Potbellies. But the conversation keeps going @WCIA3

      Christensen goes on to talk about how Zhang fought. Bullis says he was laughing when he described cutting her head off, complaining about how long it took to kill her. "[I was like] no. Uh uh," he said, "None of that f****n zombie s***." @WCIA3

    Is 13 really a big number?" she asks him. "It's bigger than Jeffrey Dahmer," he says, "Bigger than John Wayne Gacy. I have caught the nation's attention, apparently."

    Bullis says you could hear her heart beating in the clip. She describes BC's speech on the matter as "clinical". When she got home, she says she called the FBI and cried @WCIA3

    This is interesting. So he was obsessed in going to that vigil.

    He wanted to relive what he had done and get sick enjoyment that HE caused "all this' and everyone was there concerned about the person that HE took out of the world.

    Nelson: "How does it feel to be testifying against him today?" Bullis: "Terrifying." Nelson: "So why are you doing it?" Bullis: "Because it's necessary." Nelson: "No further questions, your honor." Court's in recess until 1:40.

    "He was excited," Bullis testified, recalling Christensen's mood when he told her the grisly details of Zhang's death. MM

    Wow is right.

    The GF is a true hero in this case and she had nerves of steel to agree to record him.

    Its awful to think what could have happened if he found those emails or if he spotted the hidden wire she was using to record him.

    I would have needed therapy too after that!
    Quite a lot of it.
    What a brave woman she is!

    I think he told her because he was seeking a partner for his next killing.

    Next Victim? Christensen's ex-girlfriend said he gestured to a specific woman at a memorial walk/concert for the victim, saying she'd be a "good next target." He suggested they follow her home, but never did.

    30 tweets from ben
    here's some
    1. At the end, she said he clapped in a "way not like anything I had seen." Long staccato claps instead of normal quick claps. There was a standing ovation at the end. She said Christensen didn't stand. (17/32)

      During the concert, he continued drinking, she said. "It was incredibly disrespectful for the missing person and all the people there." She also said she was afraid of getting caught. (16/32)

      He then opened the Notes app and wrote four lines and deleted them. According to Bullis, who choked up as she read these, Christensen wrote "It was me. She was #13. She is gone. Forever." (15/32)

      Bullis asked if she should be scared of Christensen. He said, "you're safe." But she said she should worry if she snitched, right? "That's true," he responded. (28/32)
