    I believe that article - which I can access - EU rules - that it was Dr. Burchard's car. Not hers.... JMO from what I've read previously.

    Her arrest report explained how Turner bought the car from a guy who advertised it on Craigslist, for $2500, and signed agreement to take over his payments, a few months ago. The original owner has now made a loss..

    Kelsey Turner Arrest Report

    Interesting that the older girlfriend thought Turner's boyfriend and helper was Greg, but now Jon is being sought.

    What I find interesting is that a blue and white bath towel matching the unfolded ones in KT's residence was found in the trunk of the car with Dr. Burchard's body. That's pretty incriminating, IMHO.

    Not sure if April 16th is still on as the court site (Nevada) doesn't have it. But I'll leave it on that date.

    A summary of the warrant for Kennison/Pena, a bit easier to read than the real article: (lots of twists and turns)

    Warrant: Here's how a casino bartender, a new flame allegedly helped kill a Salinas doctor

    Only in Vegas.... Where killers after cleaning up and leaving the crime scene, would check into a casino hotel to ponder their next move LOL

    Not to mention that they then asked two separate parties to do further cleaning at the crime scene for them ...

    ... Living it up in style I see:rolleyes:
