Attorney is giving a lot of info.
I think he got emotional when his attorney faced him with the evidence found and the new charges of murder and more. He was emotional over himself getting caught.
Just logging in, where was she found?
I guess during the earlier presser there was a rather large meeting going on at the jail.
Could somebody please give a brief outline of what his attorney is saying as I cannot view the video (maybe as I'm in the UK).
I’m a longtime member; however I don’t post often. I’ve been following this case, since the beginning. I had to walk away for a few mins. I took my sweet three year old daughter outside and lit flying wish paper wishes for Lizzy. I then watched her chase butterflies, through our yard. I’m so sad. Sweet girl, we have hoped and prayed for you over the past five days. You will be thought of often, by many. I hope you, too, are chasing butterflies today.
She was found SO CLOSE to home.
She was FIVE.
WTH did he need a knife, a pvc pipe and a baseball bat for?
SHE WAS FIVE!
found behind a shed under some sticks. I don't want to knock all the police force they said was out searching for her, but just a block and 1/2 if I understand this correctly, seems like they would have found her yesterday? Just wondering why they missed this area so close by. I guess it doesn't matter now. I am so sorry for her family and for her. I wish we had better mental health care. I just heard his lawyer say he was never diagnosed, this means this man has never had appropriate care which may have prevented this. So sad..
Which grandparents? AW's/Lizzy's mom's mom is in Texas no? And I haven't see any hint of AW's father anywhere? So is it Lizzy's bio dad's parents? Or is the grandparents thing just an error?
Banner has been updated, thread title has not. Moderators are probably very busy as is @Tricia
Snippets from his lawyer's KSL 5 live interview:
He is very emotional, very broken down right now. Very confused.
He is not diagnosed with mental illness but has definite emotional problems we can see when talking.
He wanted to give closure to his family. Even though he did a terrible thing he wants to try to make amends to the family for what he can by disclosing the location of the body.
His relationship with Lizzy was a distant uncle , not a bad relationship. Mental health eval needs to be performed.
Again snips from the interview -- MOO

Attorney of Alex Whipple says his client told him where Elizabeth Shelley's body was located, and he then led police to the spot. Police have not yet confirmed if they have located her body. https://www.facebook.com/ksltv/videos/1147127465491185/ …

Said yep he did it but no motive yet. Deals in the works for more info. Also trying to make AW out to be a victim of mental illness and childhood. If I have time later and someone else doesn't beat me too it I will try to transcribe it. It was quite lengthy but just the same stuff over and over.
RSBM: Attorney setting up his defense already with that bolded line, mark my words. This will not include an admissible confession.
I'm heading out to chase butterflies too, for Lizzy... This is too much.
I'm interested to learn how cadaver dogs were used in the search. I have to keep reminding myself that they're "human" too and can also miss their targets. IMO
I'm not sure that's what I heard too but haven't found anything to confirm that yet
He def’ wants to stifle any premeditation talk. Lol
An attys has no idea what AW was thinking when he went to the home.
Thank you so much!
I don't think it's a coincidence that he confessed so soon after he was charged. Like he knew he was going to be held responsible no matter what, so if he cooperated he might not get the DP.
If he was never diagnosed, he's probably just evil. JMO.
