Police believe they returned to their home near West William Cannon Drive and South First Street afterward, but they haven’t been seen since.

    Court documents reveal new details leading up to Heidi Broussard’s disappearance, arrest of kidnapping suspect

    Jan 7, 2020

    Fieramusca’s attorney, Brian Erskine, released the statement on Monday:

    "Ms. Jackie Wood and I are anxious to review the evidence collected thus far and have many of the same questions you do. Those accused, as well as the public at large, understandably want swift and certain answers from our criminal justice system. We call upon patience and resisting the rush to judgment until all the facts are in. The cursory information contained in the recently released probable cause affidavit is nothing more than mere allegations. As with every American accused of a crime, unless the State has proven these allegations beyond any reasonable doubt, Ms. Fieramusca remains innocent.

    "Texas prosecutors are not required to provide Defense Counsel with all of the actual case evidence until the felony is indicted by a grand jury, which could be months away. However, Travis County has maintained a policy to provide pre-indictment discovery/evidence to the Defense team (see: https://www.traviscountytx.gov/district-attorney/defense-attorney-information under ‘Things To Be Aware Of’ drop down list #7). We have asked they comply with their policy, but prosecutors have now refused, citing case complexity. bbm

    “Due process requires fair dealing and full disclosure of ALL facts and mitigating circumstances no matter how complex, and time is of the essence. We are exploring all options at our disposal to vigorously represent Ms. Fieramusca, considering the prosecution’s refusal to provide us with information at this time.”

    Fieramusca is being held at the Travis County jail.

    Tips, witnesses led to suspect in Heidi Broussard kidnapping, affidavit says

    Jan 6, 2020

    Before the kidnapping that got worldwide attention, Heidi Broussard and the woman Austin police suspect was involved in her death shared joy that they were pregnant at the same time and wondered if they would give birth the same day, according to court documents released Monday.

    [..]

    “That’s the baby at my house,” a man with whom Fieramusca was living told authorities when shown a picture of Broussard’s weeks-old infant, who had disappeared with her mother on Dec. 12.

    [..]

    Authorities also interviewed Christopher Green, the man who owned the home where Fieramusca was living, and Green told them the two had broken up in March but still lived in the home together.

    [..]

    He told investigators that Fieramusca said she had given birth to a baby girl while she was out of town at the beach and that she told him, “Don’t be mad,” after she returned home with a baby.

    An investigator with the Texas Rangers approached Fieramusca outside the home on Dec. 19 while Green was out shopping for baby formula. Fieramusca, who was holding a baby monitor, told the investigator she had given birth on Dec. 12 at a birthing center in The Woodlands and went home later that day.

    [..]

    With Fieramusca behind bars, authorities are trying to determine where Broussard was killed and who killed her. The neighbor who saw the women together near Broussard’s apartment raised suspicion that a second person could have been involved, noting in her interview with police that Fieramusca was in the front passenger seat of a vehicle that Broussard and her baby entered from the back. The affidavit did not mention who was driving.

    I think that may be what MF did in this case. Because there is nothing in the affidavit saying her license plate was captured en route to Austin on December 12th.

    MOO

    They have those license plate readers at the junction here on West William Cannon Drive - خرائط ‪Google‬‏‏

    I wonder if it captures an image of the whole vehicle or just reads the license plate.

    I've searched that article to see where it says he returned on the 13th but I can't see it.

    The way I'm reading it, it doesn't state he was out of town overnight. Somehow or other they didn't see each other on the night of the 12th, but it could have been either of them absent, or both of them. Not that she is known for telling the truth but the affidavit states MF told LE that CG stayed in Houston working that day.

    According to LE, CG was at work in Houston 12/12 when Heidi went to the beach. The next time CG saw MF was on 12/13. She either came home and they didn't see each other, or MF was gone until the 13th.

    Are you thinking of this, maybe? Seattle's post
    "He told investigators that Fieramusca said she had given birth to a baby girl while she was out of town."

    They got her plate from a surveillance camera at the apartment community (#26 AW), and pinged Megan's phone, which is how they knew she was in Austin on 12/12.

    I don't interpret the wording of #26 to be identification of her plate on Dec 12th.

    It says the video camera captured a light colored 4 door with outline, window placement and general appearance consistent with MF's vehicle with license plate [redacted].

    Thanks! That's very handy. I didn't know that Trulia had a crime feature. Naturally, I just checked out my own neighborhood.

    No interpretation is needed. It clearly says on the 12th.

    Yes I did. It doesn't say it was identified by its plate on the 12th. It says the vehicle was consistent with MF's given the features I put in the post of mine you've quoted.

    "Reported crime in this area in the last 365 days."
    These incidents are in the area of the apartment community, not just the community.

    Weird about the license plates.

    The plate is redacted. Not sure how you are missing this.

    I'm not missing it. The sentence is split between what was seen on camera (the color, doors, outline, windows etc) and how that is consistent with MF's vehicle which they then identify by its plate. It does not state that the plate was seen on camera.

    I read it like you, but I just got my first coffee of the day.
    The vehicle described is consistent with vehicle bearing plate #.......

    On another note, any psych’ tests MF’s attorney might have requested should be wrapped up, imo.
