Gateway murder trial

Crime scene inv – Suboch – cont’d

with 2 comments

State still asking about the Uniden phone. The state wants to know if there are any calls in the phone memory from the 407 area code (Orlando area).

Cross examination by defense begins…

Garber is questioning the memory on the phones, ie. when the earliest call is (12/21 on cell phone) (12/26 on the home phone).

The defense wants to go over the fingerprint evidence again. Of the seven good prints, he is pointing out none of them belong to Fred Cooper. One of those was Daniel Kokora’s (inside of front door). One was also possibly Lukasz’s print (low on the sliding glass door).

Garber is moving on to the pink rag. [We’re not going over any new territory here. Just going over things we’ve already gone over.]

Nothing new has been revealed.

Defense exhibit #2 – picture of the pink rag. Again, nothing new.

(Not sure what we’re trying to establish here other than the fact that the DNA on the rag couldn’t be identified. Maybe the defense is just going to argue there are fingerprints that can’t be identified, the DNA on the rag can’t be identified – so someone else did it – ?)

Again, the defense is having Suboch look at MORE pictures of the rag.

Defense exhibit 6 – Picture of Michelle’s left foot.

Defense exhibit 7 – Picture of Toyota 4-runner.

Defense exhibit 9 – Aerial photo of the Gateway neighborhood.

The defense is showing Suboch these pictures but we still don’t know where he’s going with this. Basically all the defense is doing is confirming with Suboch that she took the pictures.

Defense exhibit 11 – another aerial photo of Gateway neighborhood

Exhibit ? – is a picture of the Andrews home.

  1. I am fascinated by this case. I’m a big fan of CSI so this just makes the whole thing so real.

    I am fascinated by the fact that on some of the evidence there is Kelly’s DNA. I’m thinking was it there before the murder? Also I read that there was other male DNA but not Fred or Steven’s. Was DNA collected from the child.

    I think that the defense right now is making a good case. There could be lots of doubt in this case.

    I was also wondering if the courtroom is open to the public?

    The first three pieces of evidence are from Lukasz. THey all had Michelle’s DNA.
    I don’t think the defense is making much of a strong case yet. I think they’re holding back for when it’s their turn.
