We're in the courtroom waiting for the #bleuwtrial to get started. Delay was because Judge Jackson had numerous ...

10:20
... other trials scheduled, as there are most every Tuesday. They were able to clear the docket for the most part recently but ...
Tuesday October 9, 2012 10:20 SNAndyHoag
10:20
... couldn't plan around this trial going into a fourth week, at least in terms of clearing the docket. Whenever we get started ...
Tuesday October 9, 2012 10:20 SNAndyHoag
10:20
... it looks like MSP Lt. Ron Crichton, a crime lab guy, will testify.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 10:20 SNAndyHoag
10:37
Crichton is a firearms and tool mark examiner.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 10:37 SNAndyHoag
10:38
Again, to establish him as an expert, Stroud has Crichton explain his educational and professional background.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 10:38 SNAndyHoag
10:40
RT "@KellyZoellner1: Will there be a live link today?" >> yes, we're working on it now
Tuesday October 9, 2012 10:40 SNAndyHoag
10:40
RT "@kizziem34: Good morning Andy I'm a little under the weather so I'm following you all day!!" >> feel better!
Tuesday October 9, 2012 10:40 SNAndyHoag
10:41
Most experts estimate how many times they've testified as an expert. Crichton? He says 146 times.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 10:41 SNAndyHoag
10:42
Crichton will be recognized as an expert. Now explaining how he examines firearms and tool mark evidence.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 10:42 SNAndyHoag
10:44

Crichton was given Webb's necklace and the found silver charm and asked to examine them.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 10:44 SNAndyHoag
10:47
Crichton: The charm had wires extending from it that were cut. Compared charm, wires to other random areas of necklace.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 10:47 SNAndyHoag
10:52
Crichton: Charm was about 7/16 of an inch wide. Size + diameter of wire "within range" of those on necklace. 1 of bigger charms on necklace.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 10:52 SNAndyHoag
10:53
Crichton: "Did not see anything dissimilar" between charm, necklace. "Can't exclude" charm as coming from necklace.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 10:53 SNAndyHoag
10:54
In other words, as Stroud points out, "nothing inconsistent" between charm, necklace. O'Farrell has no questions, so Crichton is done.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 10:54 SNAndyHoag
10:54
Next witness is MSP Lt. Jason Teddy, one of two lead investigators along with D/Sgt Allan Ogg. Teddy was D/Sgt at time of death.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 10:54 SNAndyHoag
10:55
Teddy is the assistant post commander for the Flint Post. Was D/Sgt for East Tawas Post.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 10:55 SNAndyHoag
10:59
Teddy & Ogg went to BVPD to interview Bluew about 7 a.m.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 10:59 SNAndyHoag
11:01
Teddy: Unaware of any evidence, as crime lab had not yet gone to scene. Was briefed, but hadn't read any police reports.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:01 SNAndyHoag
11:02
Teddy describing seizing of physical evidence, taking pictures of Bluew's injuries. Ogg has testified to both already.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:02 SNAndyHoag
11:04
Teddy: Told that BVPD cars not equipped with automatic vehicle locator devices - essentially GPS devices hooked to cars.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:04 SNAndyHoag
11:05
I am told by @Bobjohnson1word that the live video should be working now. Sorry for the problems!
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:05 SNAndyHoag
11:07
Teddy: Police report found on Bluew's in-car computer. It was Ofc. Patterson's - but not the 1 that included the "red flag" observations.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:07 SNAndyHoag
11:10
Teddy: Examined the Aztek after crime lab ppl examined it. Took some different photos, depicting contents of vehicle after it was examined.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:10 SNAndyHoag
11:10
These must be the photos that O'Farrell introduced into evidence last week, the ones Bowman said she and the crime lab didn't take.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:10 SNAndyHoag
11:11
At that time, O'Farrell pointed out a smudge on an exam glove in a picture. Teddy says it was his glove with oil or another substance ...
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:11 SNAndyHoag
11:12
... from under the driver's seat. Also, Teddy says door to glove compartment was broken.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:12 SNAndyHoag
11:13
Without going into hearsay comments, Teddy says he looked into why it was broken and that what he learned was consistent w/ it being broken.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:13 SNAndyHoag
11:16
Now onto the 3 phone calls between Webb and Bluew on the night of the death.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:16 SNAndyHoag
11:17
Teddy: Phone calls categorized in different ways. Confirmed with service provider that 3 calls were made at times listed on phone.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:17 SNAndyHoag
11:20
Teddy: All 3 calls lasted fewer than a minute. Records show that call from Bluew lasted 58 seconds.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:20 SNAndyHoag
11:20
Teddy: Records show Bluew's cellphone had a missed call from Ofc. Sylvester at 10:31 p.m.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:20 SNAndyHoag
11:21
Teddy: Records for Bluew's phone shows his call to her lasted 67 seconds -- 9 seconds longer than Webb's phone showed.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:21 SNAndyHoag
11:22
Teddy now talking about Webb's old phone, which had a series of text messages between Bluew & Webb.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:22 SNAndyHoag
11:23
Looks like they're going to show the messages on the TV, through a projector.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:23 SNAndyHoag
11:27
The contact on the phone is "Ken Cop Boo." I copied down most of what was said, going to paraphrase a little:
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:27 SNAndyHoag
11:27
Webb: "What up, on my way home from Muskegon, exhaused. Did you break any ice this weekend" regarding talking to Bluew's wife?
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:27 SNAndyHoag
11:28
Bluew: "lol, nope, not yet, still working on that." Webb: "I'm sure it's not easy to decide how," where things between Bluew and ...
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:28 SNAndyHoag
11:28
... his wife that he could say he "strayed" and was having a baby by another woman? Bluew: "Not really."
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:28 SNAndyHoag
11:29
Webb: Would be worse to "broadside her." Bluew: "No worries." Webb: "lol, really? I wish, haha."
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:29 SNAndyHoag
11:29
Bluew then says he's "gotta run" and says, "talk to you tomorrow, hopefully face to face."
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:29 SNAndyHoag
11:30
And that was the convo. Now onto the interview.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:30 SNAndyHoag
11:31
RT "@dorymsbs: So why was it broken?" >> Teddy couldn't say, would be hearsay.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:31 SNAndyHoag
11:31
Teddy: Bluew not under arrest, was read his Miranda rights.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:31 SNAndyHoag
11:32
RT "@Micah92269051: Do you know if bluew's wife is going to be on the stand this week ?" >> doubt it. Only would be a rebuttal witness.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:32 SNAndyHoag
11:32
Teddy: Interview recording by audio & video.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:32 SNAndyHoag
11:35
I imagine we'll see the interview in the afternoon, as it is 2 hours long. Teddy discussing Bluew's uniforms, which Ogg testified to.
Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:35 SNAndyHoag
