    Notice under "Scars/Marks/ Tattoos" there's nothing.

    Yes I thought Ted Williams did a good job elaborating on that point.

    Would like to know if anyone sees any evidence of an entry and exit bullet wound in that mugshot? I don't even see a scar.

    Sleuthing is permitted. No direct accusations or trashing him at this time.

    Well, DICK did say that his lawyers were being retained, NOT by Alex personal finances (of which he made clear there is no more), but by “insurance”??! What?! How is that even possible?? Under what clause in what type of insurance??

    I'm obviously not a legal analyst but even adding embezzlement, without bond seems excessive. Can you think of any cases you've followed in which you've seen no bail on the above charges or similar?

    So many twists and turns, drugs, money, power, murder. Not enough nouns and adjectives in my vocabulary to describe this case. It is so darn juicy that I can't get enough of it. When the movie, documentary, mini-series comes out, I will be watching them all. I don't think I have seen anything like this in a long, long time.

    Locals do not need verified. Insiders with information related to the case players do require verification.

    No but I personally believe the recent pattern of behavior indicates a flight risk. There's probably a big fat loophole about transport to and from out of state medical facilities though. Who would have thought?

    My whole generational line is plotted with addiction. It has destroyed and taken so many of my family’s lives. My childhood and myself were permanently scarred from addiction. Both my younger brothers died from addiction. I swore it would never ever ever happen to me. I was wrong. After 40 years of fighting/surrendering to addiction - I thought I might have some relapses left in me but I was too afraid I didn’t have another recovery left in me. It was the hardest battle of my life. That was five years ago. Recovery is real…

    It seems fairly certain he will be charged with more crimes- of the white collar, just-thieving & scamming variety. There is no chance at all he would be held without bond if that's "all" he's charged with.

    I'm pretty sure he was talking about his hospitalization/detox/rehab being paid by insurance, he said otherwise 'his finances are in ruins' and wouldn't be able to afford bonding out.
