She will be an old woman when she gets out, most of her family probably dead and gone.
Your last sentence is what makes it a little more understandable. Hopefully Ms. Geneva, Leonard and Judy, and Hanna Gilley's mom Andy can rest a little easier knowing they did their best to get justice for their loved ones.
I firmly believe the remaining 2 will pay the price for the evil they did to these victims and their families. I pray that the little ones have angels on their shoulders to help them throughout the years. So sad!!
Edit to add:
I apologize for the exclusion of Gary's family, I will never forget his Dad's words and the sheer pain on his face/
That is a very reputable Vet that they have taken horses to previously. Not everything has to be nefarious....
True but that might not have been the only place BW went to that day or was going to, remember one thing this is a very and I mean a very DANGEROUS MAN, JMO
I wish George's son's mother could sue them for intimidating her into giving them custody. Evil people.
He didn't have any chance to hide in the horse trailer because LE was following him all the way from Ohio to Lexington Kentucky. On a police car video or on a police body cam video, an officer mentions seeing Billy's vehicle down the road right before they arrest him. They stopped him while the horse was still in the horse trailer.
They were outside the veterinary hospital and RW was with him, thus, this was no drug run, obviously Billy was working for FWF on a legitimate job run.
Well he may have been sure with his gloves and mask that he left no DNA behind but he did not seem to give a rat's behind that he left a bloody shoe print.
Canepa said Angie bought shoes that George and Jake do not wear so being the "mastermind" criminals they are not, they weren't worried about prints
As to George shooting Gary we know 2 different guns (likely the 30 and 40 calibers) were used at Chris's so George likely shot Gary and maybe even shot at Chris a few times. Billy had a personal beef with Chris so likely Billy shot Chris.
Jake likely shot the 3 victims at Dana's and the 2 victims at Frankie's because these 2 homes are where BCI found the 22 Walter Colt shell casings and we all know Jake was holding a 22 Walter Colt in his phone photo.
... 2 Cents ...
I disagree... all four of them were under surveillance and that's how they got them. They were all away from one another except Jake and G4. You can bet they searched each vehicle so had there been drugs we would know. Oh crap, I hope they checked the horses behind... I remember that conspiracy floating on here.
Hey CC, off the top of your head, do you recall AC saying anything about the shoes AW bought.. something like them being (on purpose) the wrong sizes for JW and G4?
That is an interesting question that I also have wondered about.
Did he stop at the door and not go in? Did he chicken out and not shoot? Did one person use two guns, theirs jammed or they ran out of ammo? He was there in some aspect according to the proffers it seems. JW may have said G4 did not shoot anyone. (Not that it would be true because he said it)
The state may not be able to prove G4 did shoot anyone if JW said he did not. I do not think they were ever able to put a specific gun in a specific persons hand until JW's confession.
I am wayyyy behind on thread but just wanted to say, there were several of us who felt AW was right there through it all but others who had a harder time believing it, but now we know - she was there!
Was this actually stated in court or is it your opinion? The audio was so poor that I had difficulty hearing a lot of it. TIA
I'll shorten this up a bit...

Stated in court by Canepa
Definitely not saying anything nefarious in ANY way. Don't a lot of vets go TO the animals to do vaccinations, etc. Saving unnecessary travel and anxiety to the animals.
I have no idea about how this is/was done with the Wagner's animals.
Next, back in the late 70's early 80's the "reputable" vet that took care of the horses at The Meadowlands was big into selling horse tranquilizers and such.
Again, a loooong time ago, although a lucrative service. I'm sure controlled substances are watched far more closely than back then.
Footnote: Dude died of an overdose from said tranquilizers.
She was not there to my knowledge unless I missed something big said in court.
@Niner thanks for the court info. I will miss GW4 hearing today as I have been selected for a jury pool this afternoon and if picked for the jury I will then miss GW3 hearing later this week as the trial is scheduled for all week. And parking is going to be a pain as there is construction going on, street blocked off next to courthouse as they are building a new annex. And I hope I don't get COVID! Haven't had it, don't want it, I am fully vaccinated but still try and keep my distance and isolate as much as possible. I will read everyone's posts and probably watch the hearing when I can.
I thought she was too but have since changed my mind.
World Justice News are covering George today.

They are safe to use, I've never had any problems with them.
“…shoes that her two sons wore during the homocides were specifically of the size and style they would not typically wear…”
“Angela was also able to provide us with some additional details including information about other crimes her family has committed over the years.”
