Ran across this during some "homework" tonight. Thought some might find it interesting.

"The defense wants to try to get out as much information as possible to instill reasonable doubt that there might be other people involved in this other than their client," said criminal law expert Leonard Birdsong, a professor at Barry University School of Law in Orlando, Fla.

"I haven't been involved in the investigation, but having done some defense work in my time, if you have something that might help you instill reasonable doubt, I would certainly try to float it," he said.

As for the autopsy report itself, it does not have to indicate a cause of death to be a strong piece of evidence in a murder trial, even if it is only one more piece of circumstantial evidence.

Ok just to cut the crap some of us are thinking of Karen and kids and friend and family. I am also thinking back.... I wouldn't have gone back out once I had my child home and my tire was leaking air.

Looks like the threat is dying down now and passing on the east. We are going to stay out for about 45 more minutes.

At 9:45 we have called it quits for the night. We dodged a bullet here in Dyer, Lake, and Lauderdale.

Just got a phone call from the NOAA confirming that we possibly could have a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for parts of the area. Everyone be careful out. If events warrants or changes, I will be here to let you know in advance.
Umx7 I have to tell you that this is the second or third time that you have called for a watch before even we know about them. I have never seen anyone like you when it comes to weather. On this comment you called a watch 5 hours ago, and I turned on the T.V. to see of we had a watch at this time and there wasn't. I waited a couple of hours later, and then we had a watch came out. You did this before, and told us that you could let us know of watches before they came out. Wow you were on the money on everything you report as well. I'll be watching when the next severe weather threat hits in the near future. Good job!

OMG, how stupid can one person be? I guess he thinks we have a problem reading the weather alert on the upper right side of the page? You know, the weather alert that gives warnings BEFORE the idiot posts his "NOAA phone call"
And who in their right mind expects us to fall for all the self promotion he does under yet another fake name?
Does this idiot need a mental evaluation or does he just think everyone else is as stupid as he is?
An idiot by any other name is still ummmmmmmm the idiot.

You are a stupid idiot. There wasn't no watches or warnings even posted yet when he made that comment about 6 hours ago. I looked every where on T.V. and the internet and also I know about the posting on the right side of the page and there weren't nothing at that time. You stupid idiot.

it is rather secluded but rumors about town it is a well known meeting site.(for kids and others doing whatever?) but if one of the swifts cars' were there, who knows? they might be able to match it.
I have a friend who lives close to that cemetary and she says that body was not there all that time..She said any time an animal is killed, the birds and varmits are all around. It would have been very obvious that a body was there. Someone planted that body later..Someone who wanted that body found..There were plenty of places they could have placed the body and it would have never been found just in that area. Another heavy equipment operator said he came right through that area and went right over that area. He said, the body was not there.

I had wondered about the animal activity before, if that would have drawn attention. The only problem though is that I thought they said the animals had gotten to her. That may have been something that was put here only, so just gossip, I don't know. As far as the heavy equipment guy, she was under the kudzu so I doubt he would have seen her.

That is surely the feel that Farese gave in his interview in the spring. It felt like he was throwing things at the wall and hoping they stuck. It seems pretty distasteful to disparage the victim but he has used it before successfully, I guess this is his MO.

I think it was Box himself that said something to that effect right after she was found and that she wasn't killed where she was found.

Not to mention the Ginger's and JSYWK's, etc. Glad they have their "secret forum" now that they post on so no one can see their trash. LOL!
