I can't even begin to fathom why Troy would say that. I guess he was trying to keep his lies straight (which he failed at miserably) and tell investigators and police what they wanted to hear. In that same meeting with the investigators is when he says he'll "set up" Gondor and Resh.

Bob and Randy were the last ones to close out the bar...with Ed Douglas <owner/bartender> and Troy being there too. They drove separately and were talking outside when Ed locked up.

There really isn't any significance with the wood and they don't deny throwing it. They were fooling around by throwing it across the street and Troy joined in. He seemed like he was lingering around waiting for a ride.

There was NEVER any blood on the wood (as initially reported) and David Norris (prosecutor) knew it. He had a report in the case file showing that it wasn't blood, but "most likely perspiration."

Since you are from the area and know "Mantua Corners", think to yourself, "If I killed someone, put them in the back of my truck and there was blood all over the wood, would I really stand out near the intersection of Route 82 and Route 44 and throw bloody wood at The Corner Saloon? Then when the owner comes out (not once, but twice) and says that he's calling the cops, you would continue throwing it?" DOES NOT MAKE SENSE!

(Troy also lied/changed his story about the size of the wood. From small cut outs of wood to 2x4's. C'mon! Whipping a 2x4 from the Upper Deck to the Corner Saloon across a two lane highway?! Yeah right!)

Bob and Randy never denied they were at the Upper Deck that Sunday, BUT...they weren't there "with" Troy.

It's like me going to Wal-Mart and seeing Charles Manson. It doesn't mean we were there "together."

Bob and Randy have accounting for where they were when they left and came back. Unfortunately, the investigator and Prosecutor wanted to finagle with the times by intimidating the witnesses.

I think we already discussed the matter of the wood (post #62).

Okay, and what exactly is your point about "oh its no secret 1 of the reshes sells cocaine!"

Dana Jastal was my mother, and Art Weaverling...he is a piece of shit. John Smith got out on good behavior which is complete shit if you ask me. He is a free man, and me and my family think that its a crock a shit. My and my sister, are without a mother thanks to his sorry ass. As for the Bustas, my mom was good friends with them, and so was my father. Joanne Busta was a good woman with problems and Troy is as guilty as John. So stop the blogging about this shit.

It is nice that you guys have the time to count how many times i said the word shit, instead of comprehending the true point that i was trying to get across. My mother is dead and your counting words and calculating percentages. Grow up. My god.

Hey Bob and WOW... get a life. Its people like you two, that piss me off. What kind of people are you anyway to count my words instead of reading them. i said that Dana was my mother. All you can do is count. Its a damn shame you cant read. Where's your heart. I am hurt over this and your trying to make jokes. No one is laughing.
