In a recent episode of "Hidden Killers With Tony Brueski," former Felony Prosecutor and attorney Eric Faddis discussed the troubling developments in the trial of Karen Read. Trooper Proctor's testimony, described as shocking and inappropriate, raises serious concerns about the prosecution's case. Faddis emphasized that as prosecutors, it's crucial to maintain professionalism and integrity, but Proctor's behavior seems to undermine this. The problematic nature of Proctor's testimony, combined with evidentiary inconsistencies, such as the missing Ring video footage and the taillight issue, casts doubt on the prosecution's case. Faddis argued that these factors collectively might lead the jury to question the reliability of the prosecution's evidence, potentially creating reasonable doubt. The conversation highlighted concerns about the broader implications of Proctor's conduct, suggesting it might reflect a deeper cultural issue within the police department. The discussion also included details of the missing Ring video and the questionable handling of evidence by law enforcement, further complicating the case against Karen Read. - Trooper Proctor's testimony is described as shocking, inappropriate, and problematic for the prosecution. - Proctor's behavior raises questions about the professionalism and integrity of the prosecution. - Evidentiary inconsistencies, including missing Ring video footage and the taillight issue, add to the case's complications. - The jury might question the prosecution's evidence, potentially creating reasonable doubt. - Concerns are raised about the broader cultural issues within the police department, suggested by Proctor's conduct. - The handling of critical evidence by law enforcement is brought into question, affecting the case against Karen Read. - The missing Ring video and discrepancies in testimony further undermine the prosecution's position. #KarenRead #EricFaddis #TrooperProctor #HiddenKillers #EvidentiaryIssues #ReasonableDoubt #ProsecutionProblems Want to listen to ALL of our podcasts AD-FREE?

The Karen Read murder trial continues with Judge Beverly Cannone set to rule on a pivotal piece of video evidence. The video, captured by a surveillance camera in John O’Keefe’s driveway, shows Read’s black Lexus SUV backing out on January 29, 2022. Read’s defense attorneys suggest that she may have accidentally reversed into O’Keefe's car, damaging her taillight. In a recent testimony, Trooper Joseph Paul, a Massachusetts State Police crash reconstructionist, stated that Read’s SUV was traveling at a speed of up to 24 mph when it struck O’Keefe. This speed, according to Paul, would be sufficient to cause the damage observed. Paul testified that John O’Keefe was struck by Karen Read’s SUV traveling in reverse at up to 24 mph, projecting him more than 30 feet. He described the impact on O’Keefe’s arm and shoulder and addressed questions about the location of debris and key cycles recorded by Read’s vehicle.  During cross-examination, defense attorney Alan Jackson challenged Paul’s qualifications and the methods he used to reach his conclusions.  Paul’s testimony is crucial as it attempts to establish the speed and dynamics of the collision. However, the defense laid into Trooper Paul's theory.  The trial has seen several key witnesses take the stand. Forensics software expert Ian Whiffin testified about a Google search made by Jennifer McCabe, "how long to die in the cold," which was conducted at 6:23 a.m., raising suspicions about the timeline of events. Whiffin clarified that the timestamp initially thought to be 2:27 a.m. was misleading, as it only reflected when the search tab was opened which was 6:23am.  He also discussed the possibility of data tampering, concluding it was highly unlikely.   Nicholas Guarino detailed the analysis of electronic devices, including phones and computers, and the steps taken to bypass security measures on Read’s phone. He highlighted the significant GPS data found on O’Keefe’s phone, in contrast to Read’s. He also read text messages between John and Karen, but before he did that, he muttered something to himself, did he say, " Kill me?" The trial has brought to light various technical and forensic details, with each side presenting evidence to support their narrative. The ruling on the video evidence by Judge Cannone is anticipated to have a significant impact on the case’s outcome. - Judge Beverly Cannone to rule on crucial video evidence in the Karen Read trial. - Video shows Karen Read’s SUV potentially damaging her taillight while backing out of John O’Keefe’s driveway. - Trooper Joseph Paul testified that Read’s SUV was traveling at 24 mph when it struck O’Keefe. - Forensics expert Ian Whiffin testified about Jennifer McCabe’s suspicious Google search. - Trooper Nicholas Guarino analyzed electronic devices related to the case. #KarenRead #JohnOKeefe #JudgeCannone #JosephPaul #IanWhiffin #NicholasGuarino #CourtLiveUpdates Want to listen to ALL of our podcasts AD-FREE?

In this episode, Shavaun Scott discusses the ongoing trial of Karen Read. The conversation highlights numerous inconsistencies and questionable actions in the prosecution’s case against Read, leading to significant doubt about her guilt. Scott explains that the expectation for law enforcement and prosecutors to present an impeccable case is not being met, especially with the mishandling of key evidence such as the reversed video footage. The discussion explores the possibility of either sloppy police work or a misguided attempt by the police to make the case against Read more compelling, which ironically raises more red flags and doubts. Scott suggests that Read might not have intentionally murdered John O’Keefe but was too intoxicated to remember hitting him accidentally. The conversation also delves into the broader issue of the justice system prioritizing winning over uncovering the truth, leading to distortions and potentially unjust outcomes.  Main points from the conversation: The prosecution’s case against Karen Read is fraught with inconsistencies and mishandled evidence. The reversed video footage presented by the prosecution undermines their credibility. There is a significant expectation for law enforcement to present a flawless case, which is not being met in this trial. The possibility of either sloppy police work or intentional manipulation of evidence is discussed. Read might not have intentionally killed O’Keefe but was too intoxicated to remember the incident. The justice system often prioritizes winning over discovering the truth, leading to distorted cases. Want to listen to ALL of our podcasts AD-FREE?

The trial of Karen Read saw significant developments today as Trooper Joseph Paul provided detailed testimony regarding the vehicle data and accident reconstruction, supporting the prosecution's case that John O’Keefe was struck by Read’s Lexus. The court also navigated multiple juror-related issues, causing several recesses throughout the morning. The day began with several sidebars involving jurors, leading to the excusal of one juror for personal reasons. The judge ordered the camera off after it inadvertently captured a juror. These disruptions were compounded by technical issues as the court worked to establish an audio feed for live-streaming. Jessica Hyde, a cell phone expert, was among the first to testify. She clarified the timing of Jennifer McCabe’s Google searches, countering previous reports that suggested a search for “how long to die in cold” occurred at 2:27 a.m. Hyde explained that the search was in a “suspended state tab” and was accessed later, during a time when McCabe was purportedly looking up sports information.   Following Hyde, Trooper Joseph Paul from the Massachusetts State Police Crash Reconstruction Unit took the stand. He discussed his examination of Karen Read’s Lexus, noting visible damage including scratches, a dent, a broken taillight, and glass on the bumper. Paul indicated that no data was recovered from the airbag control module, which he stated is not uncommon in pedestrian collisions.   In a critical part of his testimony, Trooper Paul described a “triggering event” where the vehicle accelerated to 24.2 mph, with the accelerator reaching 74.5 percent. He asserted that the data from Read’s Lexus and O’Keefe’s injuries were “consistent with a pedestrian strike” and that the impact would have caused O’Keefe’s body to “rotate counter-clockwise.”  The jury was later shown Ring camera footage depicting Read’s vehicle backing into O’Keefe’s car in the driveway. This visual evidence further supported the prosecution’s narrative. DNA evidence was also a focal point of the day. Forensic DNA analysts from Bode Technology and the Massachusetts State Police Crime Lab testified about DNA profiles matching John O’Keefe found on tail light pieces and other items at the scene. Nicholas Bradford and Tess Chart from Bode Technology confirmed that O’Keefe’s DNA was found on the taillight fragments. Chart noted, “The hair sample was consistent with the mitochondrial DNA profile obtained from John O’Keefe.” Defense attorney Alan Jackson questioned the validity of this evidence, suggesting it could have been planted. He challenged the timeline proposed by the prosecution, asserting that Read did not return to 34 Fairview Avenue after 5:18 a.m. as suggested. The day concluded with the jury being sent home, and the judge providing the trial schedule for the following week. Court will resume on Monday with a full day of proceedings, voir dire on Tuesday, no trial on Wednesday due to a holiday, a full day on Thursday, and a half-day on Friday. As the trial progresses, the testimonies of key witnesses like Trooper Paul and the presentation of forensic evidence will continue to play pivotal roles in the jury’s deliberations.

The trial of Karen Read, a Mansfield woman accused of murdering her Boston police officer boyfriend, John O’Keefe, continued with intense scrutiny of DNA evidence and cell phone data. Read, 44, faces second-degree murder charges for allegedly striking O’Keefe with her SUV while intoxicated. DNA Evidence Analysis The courtroom heard from multiple forensic experts regarding DNA analysis. Andre Porto, a forensic scientist at the Massachusetts State Police Crime Lab, performed DNA testing on several pieces of evidence. Porto testified that DNA from the passenger side taillight of Read’s SUV contained a mixture from three individuals, including O’Keefe. “When I compared it to O’Keefe’s DNA profile, it was 510 nonillion times more likely to be from O’Keefe than not,” Porto stated. However, hair found on the SUV’s rear panel did not have sufficient human DNA for conclusive testing. Similarly, a piece of glass from Read’s car bumper and samples from a broken drinking glass at the scene did not yield definitive DNA profiles. Tess Chart, a forensic DNA analyst specializing in mitochondrial DNA at BODE Technology, provided additional insights. She tested hair found on the SUV, comparing it to O’Keefe’s mitochondrial DNA. “The mitochondrial DNA profile from the sample was consistent with the mitochondrial DNA profile obtained from John O’Keefe,” Chart said. This testing method, inherited maternally, excluded 99.895% of the U.S. population as possible contributors. Cell Phone Data Examination State Police Detective Lt. Brian Tully testified on cell phone location data, illustrating Karen Read’s movements on the night of O’Keefe’s death. Tully explained that while exact locations couldn’t be determined, general areas were identified based on cell phone antenna connections. “Between 12:33 a.m. and 6:03 a.m., Read’s cell phone records showed 53 calls to O’Keefe’s cell phone,” Tully revealed. Surveillance footage and cell phone data suggested Read traveled near critical locations but did not directly proceed to her destination when searching for O’Keefe. Defense Challenges Evidence Defense attorney Alan Jackson cross-examined Tully, questioning discrepancies in reports and the failure to search inside the house at 34 Fairview Road. Jackson pointed out inconsistencies in the number of tail light plastic pieces found at the scene. “Where did the extra two pieces of plastic come from?” Jackson asked, highlighting potential errors in evidence handling. Tully admitted to possible mistakes but defended the investigation’s integrity. Jackson also challenged the cell phone location data’s accuracy, suggesting it was “physically impossible” for Read’s phone to move at the implied speed based on antenna connections. Prosecution’s Stand Norfolk County prosecutors allege Read struck O’Keefe with her SUV while intoxicated, leaving him unresponsive in frigid temperatures. State Police Detective Lt. Tully testified about a piece of clear tail light plastic with abrasions consistent with injuries on O’Keefe’s body. “I’d be comfortable in saying the marks on Mr. O’Keefe are consistent with—” Tully began before being interrupted by a defense objection. Defense’s Argument Read’s attorney, David Yannetti, maintains her innocence, arguing that others are responsible for O’Keefe’s death. The defense asserts that discrepancies in the evidence and investigative procedures undermine the prosecution’s case. As the trial continues, testimony and evidence examination remain critical. Judge Beverly Cannone has dismissed court for the day, with the trial on schedule. The court will reconvene to further investigate the circumstances surrounding John O’Keefe’s tragic death.

Welcome to a special episode of "The Trial of Karen Read," where today, we find ourselves inside the courtroom of the case against Karen Read. As we set the stage, let's briefly summarize the case that has gripped the public's attention.    Karen Read is facing charges related to the death of John O'Keefe, whose unexpected passing under mysterious circumstances led to intense police scrutiny. The case hinges on a combination of forensic evidence, alleged motives, and Karen's own statements to the police. Prosecutors argue that Karen had both the means and opportunity to commit the crime, citing contentious relationships and financial disputes as possible motives. The defense counters that the evidence is circumstantial and that Karen's connection to John's death is being misconstrued.    Want to listen to ALL of our podcasts AD-FREE?
