... were "unresponsive" and may have addressed things that Jackson didn't allow, but points out that O'Farrell didn't object at the time.
Wednesday September 26, 2012 9:43 SNAndyHoag
9:44
O'Farrell said that as the testimony was ongoing, he was trying to determine if it was outside the scope of Jackson's orders.
Wednesday September 26, 2012 9:44 SNAndyHoag
9:44
Jackson notes that witness responses sometimes do not specifically answer the question and tells O'Farrell he can object when ...

Patterson: Bluew said he spoke w/ Webb "from time to time," knew her for about 10 yrs, met her at a bar in BV. Bluew didn't go further.
Wednesday September 26, 2012 9:48 SNAndyHoag
9:48
Patterson: Bluew "seemed to be a little evasive in answering."
Wednesday September 26, 2012 9:48 SNAndyHoag
9:49
Patterson: Walked away, called Sylvester by cell to have her come back to scene, "because I was uneasy about what I had just learned."
Wednesday September 26, 2012 9:49 SNAndyHoag
9:50
Patterson: When Bluew's name was seen on phone, Patterson unsnapped his gun holster. "I wasn't sure what was going to happen next."
Wednesday September 26, 2012 9:50 SNAndyHoag

@KatieLyn14 You're welcome, will do.

Patterson: When Bluew showed him suicide note, held it down on hood with left index finger. Thomas makes sure to have Patterson reiterate...
Wednesday September 26, 2012 10:01 SNAndyHoag
10:02
... that it was his left index finger, not right -- which is what Stroud said during his opening that Bluew injured during the incident.
Wednesday September 26, 2012 10:02 SNAndyHoag
10:09
Patterson: Saw a red dot in Bluew's eye at scene. Later, while they were typing reports, Bluew's eye started to turn "black and blue"
Wednesday September 26, 2012 10:09 SNAndyHoag
10:10
Patterson: Sylvester responded to a possible B&E, radioed for backup. Patterson asked Bluew to assist her to get him away from scene ...
Wednesday September 26, 2012 10:10 SNAndyHoag
10:11
... because of the "red flags" that came up at the scene: being there already, sweating profusely, way body was hanging, name in phone.
Wednesday September 26, 2012 10:11 SNAndyHoag
10:13
Thomas asks Patterson about how, as an officer, he felt about an explanation from Bluew that when he saw Webb's vehicle, he pulled into ...
Wednesday September 26, 2012 10:13 SNAndyHoag
10:13
... Wastewater Treatment driveway and turned around. O'Farrell objects cuz it's not a fact in evidence; sustained.
Wednesday September 26, 2012 10:13 SNAndyHoag
10:14
Thomas asks question a different way: Patterson says he's never seen car parked where Bluew was parked, that he wouldn't have taken ...
Wednesday September 26, 2012 10:14 SNAndyHoag
10:16
... hypothetical route Thomas mentioned because he wouldn't have turned back on vehicle.
Wednesday September 26, 2012 10:16 SNAndyHoag
10:16
Now Thomas elicits testimony that Bluew told Patterson that he arrived just prior, did "U turn" and parked where Patterson saw him.
Wednesday September 26, 2012 10:16 SNAndyHoag
10:17
@Micah92269051 I have a photographer here, I'll try to have him send me a couple. No live video right now.
Wednesday September 26, 2012 10:17 SNAndyHoag
10:19
Patterson: Still being treated as a suicide, he was told to cut extension cord. He did, and only Webb's head & neck moved.
Wednesday September 26, 2012 10:19 SNAndyHoag
10:20
Patterson: Couldn't move body without moving vehicle. Basically had to tip toe to even get in vehicle.
Wednesday September 26, 2012 10:20 SNAndyHoag
10:21
Patterson: When body pulled up, bruises on upper arms observed. Photos taken of bruises, then she was removed from scene.

Thomas asking Patterson again about Bluew's "daily" report. Does not state that he was on Freeway Lane at 9:02 p.m. Stroud said in opening..
Wednesday September 26, 2012 10:29 SNAndyHoag
10:29
... that only possible BVPD officer who could have been there was Bluew, as Sylvester was in office writing reports.
Wednesday September 26, 2012 10:29 SNAndyHoag
10:30
FYI: Those photos I just posted were taken by Jeff Schrier.
Wednesday September 26, 2012 10:30 SNAndyHoag
10:32
@skaren24 Stroud's point during his opening was that it would have been very difficult for Webb to hang herself in that manner with ...
Wednesday September 26, 2012 10:32 SNAndyHoag
10:32
@skaren24 ... the vehicle so close to the ditch.
Wednesday September 26, 2012 10:32 SNAndyHoag
10:32
@skaren24 that's my understanding of their argument, at least.
Wednesday September 26, 2012 10:32 SNAndyHoag
10:34
Patterson: wrote 2 police reports - one generic one, one with his "red flag" concerns. Did this because he knew ...
Wednesday September 26, 2012 10:34 SNAndyHoag
10:34
... Bluew would have been able to see the first report w/ the red flag observations.
Wednesday September 26, 2012 10:34 SNAndyHoag
