It's a busy day for me today, but, having just arrived back from class, I am intrigued by the reporting regarding Justin Brown's cross-examination of FBI Special Agent Chad Fitzgerald. Last Friday, the reopened PCR proceedings came to an abrupt end after Fiztgerald told the judge that he'd discovered something:
This morning, Fitzgerald ostensibly revealed his discovery.
Apparently, Fitzgerald's discovery was that the cell phone/tower records that Justin Brown showed him were "manipulated."
This is a very interesting claim, given that Brown presumably was showing Fitzgerald the records that the State had turned over to Cristina Gutierrez back in 1999. What's interesting is that the heart of Adnan's current Brady claim is that the State gave the defense confusing/misleading/Frankensteinian copies of Adnan's cell phone/tower records, making it so that Gutierrez didn't realize she had a viable Frye objection.
Therefore, if the reporting of Brown's cross-examination of Fitzgerald is accurate, he might have just proven the defense's case.
