And when they found the shoe receipt & forged custody docs, the charges against Manley were dropped…I think that’s how it went.So Scheiderer saw the matching .22 casings when he was putting the GPS tracker on Jake's truck, not when the search was done a few weeks later.
I remember them talking around the time of the arrests/arraignments, they said something about a BCI Agent (Scheiderer) looking down and seeing something.
We always said something big happened in the investigation between the time the tracker was put on James Manley's truck on April 22 and the searches on May 12. Up until they found those casings, they were still thinking James Manley was a suspect.
That’s a full year James was under suspicion, poor guy. Between that & Leonard’s shoes, it’s no wonder Leonard was always bent out of shape with the law. I’m so glad he lived to see W-4 arrested.
