Skip to comments.DAY 10 OF VAN DAM MURDER TRIAL...VERDICT WATCH!!!

August 20, 2002
A request by the prosecution in the David Westerfield kidnap-murder trial to obtain more evidence or information, originally scheduled for a 10:30 a.m. hearing, has been vacated.
Word of the hearing's cancellation was relayed to media representatives shortly after 10 a.m. today.
The subject of the discovery motion filed by lead prosecutor Jeff Dusek was not disclosed. No reason was given for the hearing's cancellation.
Today is the ninth day of deliberation by jurors. Today's deliberating session began at 9:07 a.m., according to a public information officer.
Westerfield, 50, is accused of the kidnap and murder of 7-year-old Danielle van Dam, who disappeared from her bedroom in her family's Sabre Springs home on Feb. 2.

JUST yesterday, one of the regulars on ctv, and two guests, seemed surprised, as they replayed the court trial, to realize the laundry girl DID NOT state he appeared in his underwear.
They finally realized she said thin material....like jogging material.
But, of course, the whole media has reported it as underwear!
I also noticed on another segment, they finally wised up to Denise seeking signals from Dusek as she testified.
Having nothing else to do but replay court testimony as these moderators wait.....they are finally seeing nuggets of testimony they supposedly missed the firt time.
Nuggets that point to his not being guilty..........perhaps framed!
They were so quick to run to judgement, it must be hard to get the words out of their collective mouths, when they realize there must be more here than meets the eye........
I have found all this most interesting......and continue to hope/pray this man, DW, will be restored to freedom.
It's criminal-(& that's putting it mildly)- what they've done to this man.
What I'm hoping for is a revelation somehow, that the parents, who have manipulated & controlled this from the gitgo, will be revealed for what they really are....(& I think there's a lot more there than we know)
I hope evidence surfaces or someone breaks down, and completely exonerates this guy.
Probably ONLY that would restore some kind of life to him.........
..although knowing the complete job the media has had in destroying his reputation, there are those who will always associate him with this crime.
I totally believe he did not do this, and I stand by it!!
How can one not realize the impact this has had on his daily existence, his children, his friends & reputation.
I too noticed that ...Lets hope the jury did not miss those nugets
Gwennie, I agree with everything you said this morning.
But if DW walks out of there a Free man, there is no doubt in my mind that he will go to his grave looking for Danielle's killer. It will be his mission in life.
Back to CTV and Nancy Grace. Last evening, she was on Larry King, sprewing forth her venom against Westerfield. Nostrils flaring and glaring at Mark Geragos.
Larry King asked the panel if they thought the Jury was WATCHING TV and they all said they really shouldn't be...but hey, who can know for sure, and implied that "it's sort of the nature of the beast" to be curious about these type of shows.
OK..now we KNOW for sure the Jury is being treated to media bias. THAT is what scares me, guys.
PS. Did you all KNOW that on the morning Danielle disappeared, Damon was sitting on the street cornor "just Bawling his eyes out"?! "Somebody took my Little Girl.." he wailed.
It just keeps getting deeper and deeper.
I agree. I do not believe he did it either. His life will never be the same.. SAD
Not just the media. Over on the
Ministry of Truth other threads, Kim has continually made reference to DW appearing at the cleaners in his underwear. We had entire threads full of her insisting it was underwear, even after we produced the entire relevant testimony. I mean, she browbeat us! Produced reams of datadumps on underwear! (But conveniently ignored that testimony we produced.) In the end, some messages got pulled, some people got "warned" by her nannies the moderators, but like the bleach and the porn, she was loathe to let go of this particular myth. The search for truth becomes more difficult when one tyrant rules the threads, but finally it's starting to come out, in spite of the jackals.
...and she has the nerve to wonder why people say she's the Queen of Disinformation...
What is it about this guy I can't stand?
He made that slip? Ha, ha..so sorry I missed it.
Judge Mudd really screwed up (I can say "screwed up" on the backroom), when he didn't Sequester the Jury. Now, the Jury knows the propoganda out there, and will they feel comfortable holding out for an acquital? It's tough call.
I do love East TN!! I live just north of Chattanooga within sight of the Cherokee Nat'l Forest. I'm in Chattanooga almost every weekend though because I keep my boat on Harrison Bay. Here's to my fellow 'Noogan'!!
I do appreciate the work he has done in regards to truth in sentancing and making sure these freaks stay locked up.
I am suprised he never heard of this Avila guy prior to that crime. Does he only come out after a death?
There is no "prize," but the winner(s) get to be called "winners" and have the right to say "I told you so;" we're still negotiating about "neener neener neeners."
