Closing Arguments...

Court is on a short recess, I know there will be several links that will be out there that will have these closing arguments on video so they can be either viewed if you missed them or reviewed.

I've been asked via email and in older comments if there is an email alert system for a jury verdict.

Not that I am aware of, however WTOL has a notification system for breaking news. As does 13ABC. NBC24 also has a breaking news email/desktop service.

UPDATE: The case is now in the hands of the jury and according to what the Judge said yesterday, he will only allow them to deliberate until 8:00 p.m. each day. Most legal experts are predicting the jury will deliberate several days.

An old, cold case

Little/no usable DNA evidence

The blond pubic hair

The mysterous stranger who left in a hurry

No investigators notes

I'm betting Not Guilty due to reasonable doubt.

But, Hey, what do I know?

The main thing I keep thinking about is the depth of the wound it was three inches. Yet the letter opener is five. It seems really hard to fathom how a five inch blade being used to stab someone would not have several wounds that went deeper than three inches.

I'm not sure if this was stressed enough to the Jury but it's one of the major issues I have with the whole letter opener concept.
