    That’s correct. AM set up his friend Cory to go after him in pursuit of the claims. The claims originally were being reported as 500K; the attorney explained why it was more than that amount.

    I had it linked here this morning but deleted it because it was hyperlinked to YouTube.

    I agree......but I don't know that he really had any of those injuries, esp since the same person who said that also said that you don't flatten your own tire to commit suicide and is now claiming that he did exactly that. I don't see anything, from any of today's photos or videos that would show that kind of injury at all. MOO

    I think CES is being set up in a bad way. It stinks that the system there will most likely do him in in an effort to ‘get the real bad guy here’. It’s part of DH strategy, being as he was making certain in his court spin that the killer isn’t AM.

    It’s a common occurrence in litigation with AM “it’s always someone else’s fault”. He has gotten by with it for a long time.

    I think I understand what you're saying about the actual insurance fraud charge (there was none).

    The separate charge of Intent to commit doesn't require filing documents, though.

    This is from the affidavit --

    'That it is unlawful for a person to A knowingly make false statements or representation, and any other person knowingly, with an intent to injure, defraud, deceive, or who assists, abets, solicits, or conspires with A person to make false statements or misrepresentation for an.economic advantage or benefit in connection to an insurance transaction.'

    If that were the case you wouldn't be out of the hospital in 18 hours either,

    I think even pointing the firearm is considered a violent offense. Did they tack on “possession of a weapon in a violent crime”? I see that charge a lot with gun crimes.
    I had a good supper before jumping back in and chasing this thread again.
    Even tho this state has some of the softest gun laws in the country, they punish crimes involving them with pretty harsh measures. I’m kind of surprised they didn’t stretch the net and get AM with a weapon related crime. Furnishing the gun involved or something along those lines.

    100 percent.
    You know I hate to say it, but I’ve never seen Alex look better.

    Exactly right, he supplied the weapon...does that mean he can sue himself? Bada Bing!

    I think he was shot with one of those pill guns the vets use to give meds to dogs and cats. It melted in his mouth. lol

    You might be on the right track. This post seems Pelican Brief-esque; it’s all so complex that it really could be something along this line that’s really going on. I’m barely keeping up. The only other case I’ve followed that is equally complex is the Don Lewis case. Both definitely movie-worthy. Holy moly and moo…

    The IRS also. It's an ethics issue.

    No, we only know that police have it. But the public has not seen it.

    I've followed a lot of cases on here, but this one is one of the wildest. It seems like every other day I'm updating my work colleague, a true crime enthusiast, on this case.

    I've never felt this way regarding a case, I know my take is probably not shared, and I'm probably likely to be made to open-mouth-insert-fist, but...I actually feel bad for Alex. I don't know why I do.

    I’ve been feeling the same. I’m about the same age and am saddened to see someone with an advanced education and despite some general lawyer criticisms, seemed pretty successful at one time, just lose it all, family included. I’ve been hesitant to go all in on thinking he had something to do with the murders for this same reason.
