I did a little write-up on the case a month ago. This is one of the most confusing cases I've come across and I really hope the DNA Doe Project can shed some more light on what actually happened here. Is there any way to check aviation records for private helicopters at the time? The helicopter described seems incredibly unique and I wonder if they could find records of who owned it to try and rule it in or out as being involved in this case.
An interrupted burglar who had just committed an unplanned murder would have to be pretty stupid to take the one thing that would be guaranteed to connect him to murder and send him straight to death row.
At one point in the video he has something white in his hand—as if he had found one thing worth stealing. Whatever that was, I'm guessing that he abandoned it at the scene. The risk of something from the church connecting him to the murder would have far outweighed the monetary value of anything (except for cash, perhaps, but I don't think that he ever found the Sunday offerings—if he had, he would have been out of there already, IMO).
According to Stephen Pacheco's Trace Evidence Podcast, there was an object the authorities have in their possession and are not releasing what it is, but plan to use it to confront the murderer.
What that is? I have not clue. Trace Evidence is a mighty reliable podcast, but it is the only time I have ever heard of that.
