    I have been getting a really sketchy feeling about this postponement.

    There's no excuse why the public should be kept in the dark as to the reasoning behind the continuance. The order itself needs to state a reason why before a judge can sign off on it!

    I have yet to see any info regarding which side of the case submitted it. I am assuming the State? But, why should I have to assume about what is happening in my local public courthouse? :banghead:

    Ironically, last week was "Sunshine Week" around the US.

    Sunshine Week is a national initiative spearheaded by the American Society of News Editors to educate the public about the importance of open government and the dangers of excessive and unnecessary secrecy. It was established in March 2005 with funding from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

    I don't think so unless say...a bullet was found with her remains that came from their gun? I'm really not sure.

    "I love Ms Nancy! She and I see eye to eye. I would love to have coffee with her one day and discuss how the death penalty really should operate. Punishment in this country never fits the crime and it's long overdue that it does once again." ~ Tammy Caison Moorer

    Um, so I may or may not have received a "Juror Summons for Circuit Court" in the mail yesterday. What are the odds? It's for the "term beginning week of: 4/20/2015," and it's for the Court of Common Pleas and General Sessions. Does that week jive with what we know about jury selection? I'm not thinking straight right now, thanks to a pollen-induced headache, so what can y'all tell me?

    Wow, Surfside, I would be asking the same questions because I am not sure how that works. The timing of jury selection seems possible.

    Hope you feel better too!

    Thanks. I'll be glad when the pollen is gone. Everything's yellow & I think I've had just one headache-free day in over 2 weeks.

    I wasn't even sure if I should post about jury duty, but who else could help me figure it out, if not you fine sleuths? [emoji2]

    Tapatalking, yo.

    Not sure how that works in SC. But if you disappear from these threads for the duration of the trial, we'll know where to look for you :D

    I can't help but wonder if the attorneys would ask potential jurors about WS.

    They probably should. We have enough threads here on people being missing from Myrtle Beach that we know they're aware of us!

    I'm in the Charleston area and I feel you on the pollen. Been so miserable for days.

    Is there a way to find out a docket for upcoming circuit cases? Or how many, at least? Could narrow down your odds...

    They may not be specific and say WS, but I'm sure they will refer to social media, since the accused loved to share so much!

    WS isn't as famous as people may think. It's known in some circles, but not all, and believe it or not there are lots of legal jurisdictions that are not familiar with WS. In addition there are many other crime discussion communities out there. On top of that, Facebook and Twitter are used 1000x more than WS. But social media taken as a whole is a beacon of gossip for true crime cases, so the lawyers will not want someone who hangs out discussing this case, that's for sure, whether it's here or somewhere else.

    I don't necessarily think WS is famous among the general public. But, I, like many others I'm sure, found it when I was googling for news on a case that was personal to me. It was one of the first hits. I would assume any good lawyer(s) is googling their clients to keep on top of damage control. They would come across WS in this endeavor. IMO.

    The defense probably would if they were doing searches. The prosecution in my area was completely unaware of WS until it came up during a couple trials. Like I said, I don't think it's as well known in legal and LE circles as some think.
