Spector Watch


by blogger jgl

I guess this 2003 case is just starting to roll. Last week, there was confusion over whether Henry Lee picked up a fingernail at the crime scene (see post below). Now forensics row will start to trot through the witness stand. This seems like a lot of forensics for one bullet.

The Phil Spector murder trial is going CSI.

After five weeks of dramatic personal stories about the music producer and the B-movie actress shot to death in his home, prosecutors are shifting their focus today to science and the critical forensic evidence.

There will be discussions of blood spatter, fibers, gunshot residue, DNA and the path a bullet took when it killed actress Lana Clarkson...

..."The prosecution has to show that the forensic evidence is consistent with their theory that Spector pulled the trigger or forced her to pull the trigger," said Loyola University law professor Laurie Levenson.

How would physical evidence show that he forced her to pull the trigger? Gee whiz.

On a side note, I was surprised to find that one of the lawyers, Linda Kenney-Baden, is married to the well-known pathologist Michael Baden. What a power couple! For some reason they both showed up in a dream I had the other night. I think we may have been in a small car... has anyone had a dorkier dream than that?

Is this The O.J. Simpson "Trial of the Century" all over again? Wasn't Baden and Lee involved in that case as well?

And about your dream, yes I have; I'm a Star Trek fan.

Does the forensic evidence, put Spector in the room with Ms. Clarkson when she was killed. Why would he kill someone in his house with so much evidence to connect him to the scene. HG

i believe both baden and lee were involved with OJ. I'm not sure if spector has admitted to being in the room or not.

as for killing someone in your own home, my guess is that most murders aren't thought out. In this case, i don't think any evidence has come up about the murder being planned. The death was something that just happened, the question is, what caused it.

Both Lee and Baden were consulted during the oj fiasco.

The blood spatter evidence has placed spector at the scene. The spatter was found in the sleeve of his jacket and on his jacket proper.

Specter was in a drunken stuper. He had threatened other women when drunk and they wanted to leave, but with Lana, she didn't know him, so she fought back and in the struggle he pulled the trigger. But like OJ, good chance money will win out. Another woman dead and no justice.
