    I think ZA's lawyer doesn't have a whole lot to present here. She can discredit the ex, JA, and that is about it. There is no one she can bring forward to say, "I was with ZA and he didn't do it." Her client was a meth dealer, known intimidator. Who will be there for proving or creating reasonable doubt? His lawyer is a bit of a mess. She is not efective so far. She bullied the GF and folded on the man who watched Holy Bobo shot in the head and testified that he almost killed her client's brothers.

    :D Well, they didn't do completely without, just without what they really wanted. They were out of Fancy Feast and Cesar. LOL. Spoiled rotten.

    Just got through watching the end of the last thirty minutes I missed. Defense is working on trying JA. But, the jury already knows that he has been charged with kidnapping, rape and murder and that he is hoping for leniency. She is wasting her time. Rehashing something over and over is not helping her client at all and doesn't change a thing.
    JA comes across as truthful except IMO his total involvement. If his story is correct, he at the least is culpable for kidnapping and murder. JMO
    At no time today did I see Defense cast any doubt on ZA's guilt and he is the one on trial at this time.

    So sad to think that all of us that held out hope, the many family members, friends and neighbors that searched for weeks, and Holly was dead in the first 2 hours.

    She can't do that because ZAs defense has always been "you got the wrong guys" he'd now have to put himself at the crime scene and therefore involved.

    I had to miss some testimony today, but did either side validate or invalidate JA's animal watching between 7 and 8 on the day Holly went missing? If I was the defense I would have really pushed the idea JA went there, kidnapped her, and brought her to ZA/DA/SA. Or if I was the prosecution, I would have made it absolutely clear that his cellphone pings put him in the area he said he was in.

    Am I the only one who finds it incredibly hard to believe that if they murdered her as Autry says that they couldn't find a single piece of DNA linking any of them to Holly? I found Autry pretty convincing today but it's so hard for me to imagine no DNA being found.

    But I wonder how long it was before they checked for DNA?

    I stated earlier that I didn't follow this case prior to the court proceedings that are happening now. So I decided to go back and read some prior threads. Currently reading the first ARREST thread. Going to try to bring a post over, but I've never done this before!
    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sh...ussion-1-***ARREST***&p=10307353#post10307353

    Has this been addressed yet in court? Will it be able to be brought in Zach doesn't testify? Because if it can be shown where he was when this was posted, it 'might' be enough to add doubt. I mean who is going to think about posting to FB when you've got an abducted victim you plan to rape and murder?

    Maybe I shouldn't be going over past stuff!

    Is AJ "at the least culpable for kidnapping"?

    Please explain to me why you think AJ is culpable for kidnapping?

    From the evidence so far, I have assumed that ZA was the kidnapper as it was he who wore the camouflage clothes. So why was AJ charged with kidnapping?

    Tennessee Kidnapping/Abduction Laws
    Kidnapping is the crime of taking a person against their will to an undisclosed location. This may be done for ransom or in furtherance of another crime, or in connection with a child custody dispute.


    https://kidnapping.uslegal.com/state-kidnapping-abduction-laws/tennessee-kidnappingabduction-laws/

    So please explain to me why you think that AJ is culpable for kidnapping.

    According to this link, Yes, Facebook IS admissible in Court and it WILL be used against you!

    http://www.collinsfirmtn.com/news-e...facebook-is-admissible-in-court-and-it-will-/

    Even if ZA does not testify, his Facebook posts can be used by the Prosecution as evidence against him.

    Hey all!

    Geez - you've all been busy since last night - 400 posts to read.... :eek:nline:

    Did you also notice that the LE guys got up and stood around them when JA moved to the projector chair!! I guess - getting ready "just in case" something happened between them!!

    and this:
    From these statements alone and the way I've viewed him on the stand - I believe JA has killed and buried bodies before.... he seems to be a "clean-up" man in the area - well to me anyway! You know, like Ray Donovan! :)

    Absolutely agree - why would Zach show Clint how to make meth - that would take away from Zach's $$ income, if someone else is going to make it & sell it - in the same area!
    Oh - someone just mentioned camo outfit - did LE every find one? Or was that his "regular" dress?

    Do we know "for sure" that ZA is going to testify???!!! :eek:hwow: okay.... read a little further along - and no - he is not for sure taking the stand - but it sure would be interesting! More maps?? :giggle:

    K - this post is getting too long - 200 more posts to read....

    Checking in again from OZ. All i can say is wow. Wow. Wow. The defense didnt try and poke holes in anything he said? The only explanation i can come up with is that she is letting it all slide and has something big up her sleeve to blow JAs story to bits (or attempt to) at a later date. I am stuck on this feeling that something major will happen but i dont know what. Perhaps she has another star witness waiting in the wings?

    Anyone else think this could be a possibility?

    But maybe there wont be drama at all and get settled quickly and easily.

    Sitting on the fence as usual :)

    interesting from Chris Contes twitter page:


    Chris Conte Retweeted
    Chad Jackson @chdmjxn
    Defense will surely call Clint Bobo during their case & make him either rebut State's star witness or take 5th. #HollyBobo @NC5_ChrisConte




    WOW. Can the defense force someone to testify? I don't think they can, can they?

    Good question katydid! I don't personally know! :dunno:

    K - off to watch the last hour or so of this testimony, since no one was tweeting what was said.... :D

    So - any guesses on who will be taking the stand today??

    Later! :wave:

    I would think that the defense can subpoena him to testify just like the prosecution can subpoena people to testify and they have to show up.

    When the defense presents it's case, she may call witnesses that contradict what he has testified to. ie---maybe she'll call a cell phone expert to testify that his phone pinged near the Bobo residence at the time Holly was being abducted and JA was not out in a field enjoying watching the ducks and deer because he's a good old county boy, like he said he was. Just a guess.
