Kelly, chief Longo asked people who know Matthew to tell police where he liked to fish, and hang out. Longo says more than 3 thousand tips have come in, so I'm sure they're figuring his fishing favorites in.
H - the defense attorney represents the suspect, not the truth. A good defense attorney knows judges and juries want the truth, and use the truth in sentencing. Jim Camblos is an experienced prosecutor, now Mathhews defense attorney. He plays hardball. The prosecution has the burden.
Josh, UVA hospital hasn't said whether he went back to work. I'm sure police have his time in attendance records now. And, I'm sure police have or will get his bank/credit card records to determine what he did in the days after Hannah Graham disappeared.
Neal, there have been reports that Matthew was under investigation for sexual assault as a college student. What do we know about those allegations?
Thanks, WTOP.....:). Matthew was accused of sexual assaults at Liberty Univ and Christopher Newport University. He was never charged in either case. Prosecutors here in Charlottesville now are reviewing evidence from those cases for possible inclusion.
EPC -- the discovery process down here is actually different than up in northern Virginia. Prosecution has to share evidence here a few weeks before trial. In NoVa It's often on the day of trial. And, no, the public doesn't get to view it until after the trial.
Betty--last time police answered the question, her iPhone 5s hadnt been recovered. While phones can be tracked these days, they can't when the battery runs out or is taken out. So, clearly the phone kept moving because I'm sure police have searched where it was last transmitting
In response to questions about where teams are searching now, WTOP's Mike Murillo has some new information.
Neal, what happens if officials never find Hannah?
What if they never find Hannah? Obviously that would be devastating to her family and loved ones. Yet prosecutors could continue w the Abduction charge, or upgrade to murder if they have other evidence.....
Remember, Alexis Murphy's body was never found, and Randy Taylor was convicted. He's appealing his case. You don't need a body to prosecute for murder in Virginia. And if other cases are proven, this could be a capital murder case, with the killing of a number of victims over a span of time.
EPC, prosecutors don't have to divulge all their evidence until weeks before trial. The process is a long one. In my opinion, it generally works the way it should.
Thanks for all the great questions. We'll do it again soon. In the meantime, keep in touch on Twitter @AugensteinWTOP. Bye for now.
