f1guyus: “Charged as an accessory?” By who? The DA calls her as a witness and charges their own witness as an accessory? There’s no profit here. Feb 19, 2019 21:36:51 GMT
f1guyus: Unless the DNA story is cover for Sharon or one of the daughters making that phone call after they saw the FBI presser I think she’s a footnote. Feb 19, 2019 21:39:47 GMT
cherylh: We don't know that Sharon Huddle is not cooperating with the prosecution. That information cannot be released. Feb 19, 2019 22:08:02 GMT
f1guyus: True Dat Feb 19, 2019 22:10:30 GMT
niktun: The wife of William Choyce found his ski mask and his daughter told her she saw him wearing it around the house. Yet she never suspected he was a serial rapist/killer. Feb 19, 2019 22:38:03 GMT
cherylh: As I get older, I am continually astonished by how hard people work to ignore weird things about people they are in close proximity to. Feb 19, 2019 23:45:54 GMT
mia: , I know what you mean. BTK's wife found weird things he'd written that pointed straight to her husband as being the serial killer they all feared. Yet, he made excuses for what she'd found, and she bought his story at that time. Too sad. Feb 20, 2019 2:02:09 GMT
cherylh: That's another thing genetic testing and genealogy sites have done -- made it hard for some people to continue willful blindness toward suspected family secrets. Feb 20, 2019 2:07:59 GMT
f1guyus: That last touches more than one nerve right now. Feb 20, 2019 4:20:23 GMT
goldrusher: Under a flash flood watch here due to all the rain. Feb 20, 2019 10:57:56 GMT
thekevin: Hi. Wasn't online for a longer time. Are there any news concerning JJD's whereabouts and his deeds during the time of the south ca attacks emerged already or is it all still a secret? Feb 21, 2019 15:09:54 GMT
goldrusher: Rest in peace, Peter Tork. Feb 21, 2019 19:41:26 GMT
cherylh: TheKevin -- The general belief is that law enforcement and the prosecution have uncovered a lot of information that they are not free to release at this time due to pre-trial rules regarding evidence. Feb 22, 2019 3:18:02 GMT
walter: I believe media can release anything they want to (they they find) but LE will not be directly telling them anything that LE has found until the trial is finished (or whatever form that takes) Feb 22, 2019 17:04:43 GMT
cherylh: Yes Walter, the media, in general, can report what reporters learn. It sounds as though the police and prosecutors are keeping things tight. Feb 22, 2019 22:34:45 GMT
cherylh: In some cases, judges put gag orders on the media. The media usually tries to fight such orders through legal action. Feb 22, 2019 22:35:14 GMT
cherylh: In England, there are laws against writing about criminal cases before they come to trial. Feb 22, 2019 22:36:06 GMT
cherylh: And there's always the possibility that some reporters have agreed to hold back from publishing information in return for better access. But that's a pretty unusual situation. Feb 22, 2019 22:37:16 GMT
cherylh: Some newspapers have policies against any agreement with sources regarding the publication of information. Feb 22, 2019 22:37:59 GMT
pod: Yes Cheryl, sub judice laws in Britain and several other countries. America has a version of sub judice but not as strict. Feb 23, 2019 1:27:50 GMT
