    I certainly hope we can get to the bottom of this one day, and the sooner the better. For everyone.

    I don't really understand these dates, and can't get into the link, but I'm glad to see that something seems to be happening at last.

    I see that AJ is keeping busy on Twitter, mostly about football, like he doesn't have a care in the world.

    Looks like they moved the motion hearing for today - and they now have a new trial date - earlier than before.

    Good, some real progress at last. But maybe not good for AJ, I still have trouble believing he didn't do it.

    9/2/21 Update: Motions hearing rescheduled on 9/10/21. His defense team dropped their own bombshell during that first trial: arguing the then-teen's older half-brother, Josh Armstrong, Dawn's biological son, could be the real killer because he was mentally unstable at the time & allegedly heard voices in his head. Defense attorney DeToto won't discuss specifics about strategy in the retrial, but said they have more evidence about the "alternative perpetrator," which the defense will ask to introduce on Friday, Sept. 10, during a pre-trial hearing. Also to be discussed in the pre-trial hearing are the 22 pieces of evidence lost after trial one. Those items include A.J. Armstrong's cell phone, shell casings, DNA swabs along with other items. The defense argues text messages from his phone should not be allowed in retrial because the phone is gone. In 2020, a spokesperson with the Harris County District Attorney's Office told Eyewitness News the lost evidence was in a bag mistaken for trash. A.J. Armstrong's retrial is currently set to begin January 4, 2022. He will be 22 by then.
    9/10/21 Update: Motion hearing reset by Court to 9/22/21.
