GW4 is still living in fantasy land if he thinks he stands a chance of mitigating his involvement in these murders. If you look at the known evidence, the level of stupidity by these sick criminals is beyond belief. They tried to mask their involvement as they left electronic crumbs to their front door. Imo, their level of stupidity outweighs their level of sophistication. Jmo Moo
Before all the evidence came to light and before there were searches, forensic reports, BCI listening devices planted, interviews of the Wagners and many others, and information
from witnesses such as Jake's wife, George's wife and their uncle, etc ... Before all that it may have come across as a sophisticated operation as DeWine put it.
Over all it looked sophisticated - at first - Then the evidence started to show how clueless they were, amateurish, with their plans not thought through.
Showing very little sophistication in the end with mistake after mistake.
1.) Faulty burned silencer in well - Consistent with suppressor parts they bought.
2.) Bullet casings buried in the ground - Matched casings at crime scenes.
3.) Fraudulent custody documents - Showed motive for murder and also exposed Angie's lie telling her mom to lie and say she forged the documents.
4.) Angie's infamous shoe receipt - Linked BCI to the Waverly Walmart showing Angie (in early April) on video buying the brand of shoes that were consistent with the bloody footprints at Dana's and Chris's including having new tread.
5.) Digital trail of their online and local purchases.
6.) Not getting rid of Jake's phone with family gun information and gun photo.
7.) Not getting rid of Angie's laptop showing many screenshots of Facebook private conversations they hacked into.
8.) Using guns that are incriminating such as using a Walter Colt 22 when there is a photo of it on Jake's phone, being known as a Glock man and buying a Glock then using a Glock for the crimes. And their purchased silencer equipment goes specifally with these size guns.
9.) Leaving bloody foot prints at 2 crime scenes.
10.) Knowing they are being bugged by BCI yet still making incriminating statements.
11.) Discussing revenge in front of a witness.
12.) Fighting with Chris Rhoden.
13.) Wanting custody right before they committed their crimes.
