My thoughts from today's proceedings and my reactions to some or your thoughts/observations (in case you are interested, LOL):
I thought the discussion of how inaccessible Paul's pulse points would have been was interesting and important. Obviously his wrists were out -- IMO even if Alec tried to turn him over. From the testimony we heard, it sounds like it would have been difficult to access his carotid arteries in his neck (were they even in tact), another obvious place to check.
I already posted about the flip-flop tracks and care taker's tire tracks in close proximity. But in case you missed my post, I think Poot was trying to get people to connect them as in Cuzin Eddie's version of the motive for murder.
Was interested to learn that Duffy Stone's team might have taken photos in the hangar (of the flip-flop tracks) *and* possibly contaminated the evidence. Continue to be angry that Duffy Stone's team was even there!
Search warrant: looking forward to hear why the house wasn't' thoroughly checked since SLED / investigators were entitled to do that. If it was in the search warrant, someone must have considered it part of the crime scene. Wonder how that will be explained.
I am thinking Alec's tears *are*
real -- no matter whether he is guilty or not he is under unimaginable pressure. What I am seeing in his facial expressions is mostly tension. I suspect the head bobbing and constant tic-tacs are mechanisms for self-soothing, and a certain amount of the tears are tension relief. There is also the possible reality that in the split seconds after the murders, he changed his mind. He was faced with very real horror of what he had done, which was nothing like his fantasies around financial freedom, buying time, gaining sympathy, etc.
Would love to hear your thoughts ...
P.S. My references to the testimony today are from listening to virtually the entire proceedings through the Law & Crime
