Indications Of Graft In SB’s Cannabis Business Permitting Process Mount

Evidence that graft has infused the cannabis-related business operation permitting and licensing process at San Bernardino City Hall involving both elected officials and staff continued to accrue this week.
Suspicions that something was amiss surfaced some time ago, well before the city undertook at its February 21 meeting to grant licensure to 16 entities. With the granting of the licenses, several of which went to applicants that did not conform with the city’s codes and requirements, the case against city officials grew ever stronger in the minds of many members of the public. The popular indictment was cinched when it was subsequently shown that at least six applicants which were in compliance were denied permits. Given the amount of money that had been provided to the city’s elected leadership by several of the successful applicants in the form of disclosed and visible campaign contributions, the widespread impression was that money provided under-the-table to the decision-makers was a factor as well.
Moreover, city officials did nothing to dispel those notions when, in justifying the provision of those permits to the entities that are out of compliance with the regulations the council itself insisted on instituting last year, they stated they had merely relied upon a ranking of the applicants and their qualifications provided by the city’s so-called cannabis consultant, HdL. Conveniently for them, however, HdL was not available to explain the criteria upon which those rankings were based or provide a defense of why companies which had made efforts to meet the conditions were denied and those that ignored the regulations succeeded.
Among those requirements is the maintenance of a buffer zone of 600-feet between homes and cannabis businesses unless there is an intervening barrier, such as a freeway, railroad track or flood control channel. There are similar separation requirements with regard to churches, schools, other cannabis-related businesses and concerns selling or serving alcohol.
For several years, the overwhelming number of members on the city council were adamantly opposed to allowing the operation of medical marijuana dispensaries in the city, which the city had the discretion to permit under the auspices of the Compassionate Use of Marijuana Act put in place by the passage of Proposition 215 in 1996. The city and the city council gamely sought throughout much of the current decade to shut down any such bootleg operations that were set up by those willing to brave the city’s enforcement action, even as an overwhelming number of such enterprises popped up and City Attorney Gary Saenz opined that the effort to clamp down on them was essentially “futile.”
Even after the Passage of Proposition 64 by the state’s voters legalizing the use of marijuana for its intoxicative effect in 2016 together with San Bernardino’s Measure O, which legalized the sale of the product within the city limits, city officials were resistant to the concept. This resulted in litigation against the city to force it to comply with the mandates in Measure O. Ultimately, the city resigned itself to the inevitability of cannabis sales taking place within its confines.
With scores of would-be marijuana entrepreneurs lining up to obtain licenses beginning in 2018, city officials who had been so adamantly opposed to the legalized presence of the substance in San Bernardino flipped. After the realization that the sale of marijuana in the city was going to be subject to a highly competitive permitting and licensing process, the opportunity for those with authority over the process to get a piece of the action dawned on virtually everyone.
Empire Connect, Pure Dispensaries, Have a Heart, JIVA, and PTRE Management were provided with retail permits on February 21. Orange Show Cultivators, which is to engage in cultivation, manufacturing and distribution; SOCA Farms, involving retailing, cultivation and distribution; Central Avenue Nursery, a cultivator, retailer and distributor; and Nibble This, which is to entail retailing, manufacturing and distribution under two separate permits and at two separate locations were all given microbusiness licenses the same night. Accessible Options, 14 Four, GWC Real Estate Services and Organtix Orchards were also granted cultivating permits on February 21. AM-PM Management was the recipient of a manufacturing permit and Blunt Brothers, a distributor, was given on the same night permission to operate. Simultaneously, 23 other applicants had their bids for licensing turned down.
On February 25, Washington LLC filed a lawsuit against the City of San Bernardino which essentially charges the city’s officials with being on the take.
“The effects of the ‘pay for play’ corruption led to the city issuing a large number of licenses that were illegal,” Washington LLC’s attorney Ben Eilenberg wrote in the suit. “Over 50 percent of the issued licenses were illegal, thereby throwing the entire process into doubt.” According to Eilenberg, Organtix Orchards, AM-PM Mgmt. Inc., Orange Show Cultivators, both Nibble This operations, Blunt Brothers, and Accessible Options are out of compliance with the city’s codes, policies, municipal plan, zoning codes and/or general plan.
According to the suit, money originating with applicants for the licenses was being passed around to the city’s elected officials, and on occasion city staff in positions as high ranking as the city manager were coordinating how the money, disguised as political donations, was to be vectored and to whom, in return for which the licenses were granted.
Proof of the allegations consists, according to Eilenberg, in the form of texts and emails that passed between city officials and cannabis operation applicants or their representatives in which preparations for the exchange of approval for money took place. Proof that something is amiss exists in the consideration that several of the cannabis operations that are out of compliance with the city’s standards were given permits while others which were in compliance came away empty-handed at the end of the February 21 special meeting, Eilenberg asserts.
On March 1, another applicant, Connected Cannabis Co., also known as EEL Holdings, LLC, represented by attorney Jeff Augustini, filed suit against the city in an action that mirrors the suit Washington LLC brought. Connected Cannabis maintains that all 16 businesses granted licenses on February 21 should be prohibited from proceeding. Several of those given licenses, and others, were not certified by the San Bernardino Community Development Department as being a requisite 600 feet or more away from schools, parks, churches, youth centers, operations where alcohol is served or sold as well as residences, according to Augustini. Moreover, Augustini suggests that “the credibility of the city’s selection process” has come into question “amid growing rumors and allegations of corruption, cronyism, political maneuvering, and the use of the process to score political points and to carry out political vendettas.”
Connected Cannabis wants the previous permitting process to be scratched in its entirety and the city to start over.
Dr. Majid Seraj, a Redlands-based biochemist and pharmacist, had applied for a microbusiness permit that would have allowed his company to manufacture cannabis-based medical products for the wholesale market in San Bernardino.
He told the council, “The cannabis licensing process was a stress test for the City of San Bernardino. The results of the stress test show a complete and utter failure by the city at every phase of the licensing process, a perfect case of Murphy’s law which says that if anything can go wrong it will. And it sure did. Disgraced HdL’s phase 2 scores were vacated. The city’s phase 3 scores were statistically debunked, and a phase 4 meeting was a sham in the name of due process as questionable policy decisions were made and licenses were offered for sale on the spot to satisfy licensing quotas. Let’s explore how things should have been done. A competent planning department would have reviewed general plan and land use compliance for each applicant that was not compliant very early in the process. It should have amended the general plan and land use designations where cannabis businesses may be permitted based on a conformance analysis during phase 1, not after awarding licenses. Adding insult to injury, Ms. Miller [City Manager Andrea Travis-Miller] abused her authority throughout the licensing process by accepting a late application, modifying the application guidelines at will and without city council approval to satisfy her own licensing agenda. As a result, her actions have exposed the city and herself to fierce litigation and, just like Measure O, we’re back in court. On a positive note, the council astutely recognized the shortcomings and challenges of the licensing process. Mr. Nickel [Councilman Henry Nickel] said, ‘I will be honest. There are a lot of good applicants here. I’d like to see some of you guys come back because I personally think 17 is kind of an arbitrary number and I don’t think we should be doing this. What we’re doing is picking applicants and to me that is dangerous and I don’t think we should be doing that here tonight. This was a messy process and I apologize to each and every one of you in this room.’ During his closing statement, Mr. Nickel directed the staff to include an item for consideration to increase the number of licenses at the second meeting in April. Mr. Shorett [Councilman Fred Shorett] said he would support this agenda item. Let’s make sure this happens. What’s important is for the council to provide a clear path for the remaining qualified applicants to secure a license without having to go through an entire application process. Therefore, we cannot afford to go through another potentially flawed four-phase system. You have everything you need to evaluate the remaining applicants and consider issuing additional licenses. There is a tremendous amount of work that needs to be done. Please help us get there.”
The heat is clearly on. With significant portions of the community coming to recognize that bribes and kickbacks are being handed around to them or their colleagues, the council, understanding their individual and collective reputations and prospect for prosecution are on the line, have closed ranks and are carrying on nonchalantly, acting as if nothing is out of the ordinary.
In the meantime, what has been going on has not been lost on elements of the police department. No arrests of city officials have been made, however. Police Chief Jarrod Burguan, who underwent knee surgery in January and was cleared to return to work more than three weeks ago, has remained on medical leave, such that Captain Eric McBride’s tenure as acting chief has been extended. Suggestions are that Burguan, who garnered significant positive national attention after the December 2015 mass shooting by Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik and who is considered a potential candidate for police chief in a host of venues elsewhere, is reluctant to actively involve himself with a situation in which he will need to tolerate criminal involvement on the part of his political masters, and may be willing to leave the department in the hands of McBride and another captain in the department, Richard Lawhead, both considered potential successors to Burguan as chief. In that atmosphere, what appears to have been a major internal departmental power play manifested on Monday, when Lawhead was placed on administrative leave, pending an investigation into an undisclosed matter.
On Wednesday, the city council took up a proposal, ostensibly rolled out by Mayor John Valdivia, to open five police department substations at key locations throughout the city. Curiously, however, in dealing with the proposal, the council drew short of actually committing to the establishment of the substations. Rather, the council made a vague declaration of a “future” reopening of the facilities, which were intended to facilitate community policing and make the department and its personnel more accessible to the public and more sensitive to neighborhood needs.
Despite not having the facilities available for the substations, the council voted, with Councilman Fred Shorett dissenting, to prepare for the reorganization envisioning the substations by making seven promotions and accompanying upgrades in pay to selected officers in the department. The upshot was that seven sworn personnel are now reclassified, consisting of five patrolmen or detectives becoming sergeants and two sergeants becoming lieutenants. Those upgrades will entail a cost of roughly $100,000 over the remaining three-and-a-half months of fiscal 2018-19 and $336,270 annually thereafter, in addition to increased pension benefit costs for the involved officers.
For those watching the council’s action in making the promotions, it heightened suspicions. The optics were that the council, nervous about the police department’s knowledge of the graft its members are engaging in, was attempting to buy the police department off with the do-nothing promotions, given that the council did not budget anything for creating the substations, and took no action to make the actual substations a reality. Supporting that view is that the city has potential access to a number of possible substation sites throughout the city in the form of properties that were assets of the city’s now-defunct redevelopment agency. The city council, which doubles in the role of the successor agency to the redevelopment agency, has the authority to designate those properties for some beneficial public uses, such as housing police substations. During the entirety of the discussion at Wednesday night’s meeting, no mention of using the city’s former redevelopment agency property was made by the council or staff. Nor did McBride suggest making such an adaptation of any of the mostly fallow properties at the city’s disposal.

Decade-And-A-Half After $14M Voting Machine Debacle, State Again Demands System Update

It’s Deja Vu in San Bernardino County and in particular at its Registrar of Voters Office.
In 2019, the State of California is putting the squeeze on 52 of the state’s 58 counties that have not yet done so to transition to more up-to-date voting systems, ones that are computerized, standardized, secure, fast and voter-friendly.
Almost sixteen years ago, San Bernardino County was subjected to a similar demand emanating out of Sacramento, and was stampeded into making a premature choice to spend $13.9 million to purchase touch screen voting machines. Thereafter, the state threw the county a curve, decertifying the voting system the county had just purchased, insisting it jettison that system in favor of an equally expensive alternative system, a virtual squandering of the $13.9 million.
As a result, the county ended up defying the state by using the voting system it had acquired in late 2003 in the 2004 primary and general elections, and never used it again other than as an assistance tool to handicapped voters, going back to a tried, trusted and true paper ballot system thereafter. This embittered county officials toward the state over what was seen as a wasting of nearly $14 million, money San Bernardino County’s taxpayers had shelled out to make the hasty compliance the state had demanded. Along the way, the county’s registrar of voters and his assistant, each of whom did yeoman’s work in seeking to deal with what would turn into a virtually impossible set of demands, were scapegoated and cashiered.
California Secretary of State Alex Padilla on February 27 of this year issued an edict calling for voting officials throughout the state to transition to voting systems that are in compliance with the California Voting System Standards adopted in 2015, and that they do so in time to accommodate the need to conduct polling in conjunction with the March 3, 2020 California Primary election. Padilla insists that the revamping take place in order “to strengthen the security of California’s election infrastructure.” Padilla has initiated the process for withdrawing certification or conditional approval of voting systems that were not tested or certified under the most recent state security standards. Padilla has given indication he will consider granting waivers on the requirement until December 2020 to those county’s which can demonstrate they are unable to meet that deadline if they request an extension as of three weeks from today, April 5, and can make a bona fide hardship demonstration. Nevertheless, San Bernardino County, with a paper ballot system considered to be the most antiquated system in the state, is not likely to get a pass from Padilla.
When Registrar of Voters Michael Scarpello was sacked last July, Bob Page, the principal management analyst in County Chief Executive Officer Gary McBride’s office, was designated to take his place as interim registrar. The challenge of making the system changeover represents an unforeseen risk to Page’s career, which hinges on whether he can bring the county into compliance with Padilla’s order, and not make any of several potentially costly errors in doing so.
One issue is that the county has been told by the state that it has six tentative options in choosing a voting system to employ. Those are Dominion Voting Inc’s Democracy Suite 5.2 Voting System; the County of Los Angeles’ Voting Solutions for All People Tally 1.0 System; Hart Intercivic’s Verity Voting 3.0.1 Voting System; Dominion Voting Systems, Inc’s Democracy Suite 5.10; the County of Los Angeles’s Voting Solutions for All People Tally Version 2.0; and Election Systems and Software, Inc’s EVS 6.0.4.2.
At present, three of the six have have been tested and certified to the California Voting System Standards—Dominion Voting Inc’s Democracy Suite 5.2, the County of Los Angeles’ Voting Solutions for All People Tally 1.0 and Hart Intercivic’s Verity Voting 3.0.1. The three others, Dominion Voting Systems, Inc’s Democracy Suite 5.10; the County of Los Angeles’s Voting Solutions for All People Tally Version 2.0; and the Election Systems and Software, Inc’s EVS 6.0.4.2, are currently being tested and reviewed to see if they meet the California Voting System Standards.
If Page chooses wisely and things work out, he is likely to burnish himself a reputation that will stand him in good stead when a replacement registrar of voters is finally selected and he returns to the post of principal management analyst in the county administrative office.
The possibility exists that no matter what Page does it will be the wrong selection, as the capricious Padilla, like former California Secretary of State Kevin Shelley before him, could unilaterally decide in two months or six months or next year or two or three years from now that one or more of those systems no longer pass muster with the state, and the county will need to replace it, at a cost of as much as $20 million. Indeed, if Page makes the wrong selection, County Chief Executive Officer Gary McBride will send Assistant County Administrative Officer Leonard Hernandez, who is the San Bernardino County governmental structure’s version of the grim reaper – i.e., the fellow that does all of the senior staff firing – to lop Page’s head off.
Page’s potential fate would be a repeat of what then-San Bernardino County Registrar of Voters Scott Konopasek experienced in 2004.
Konopasek was San Bernardino County’s registrar of voters in 2003, having been hired into that position after he had held the chief elections officer position with Snohomish County in Washington State. A major issue Konopasek was called upon to contend with during his tenure was meeting the State of California’s mandate, encouraged by then-Secretary of State Kevin Shelley, that San Bernardino County upgrade its voting system. Shelley said any of three systems available on the market at that time, touchscreen systems manufactured by Maximus and Hart Intercivic, Sequoia Voting Systems and Diebold Voting Systems, would meet his requirements. After carrying out his own careful analysis, Konopasek recommended that the county purchase, at what ultimately turned out to be a cost of $13.9 million, a touchscreen voting system manufactured by Sequoia Voting Systems. The county had committed to using that system in the 2004 Primary, which was held that year in California in March. Prior to that election, however, Shelley withdrew his certification of electronic voting machines throughout the state because, he said, they had uncertified software upgrades which could be vulnerable to tampering. Konopasek confidently went ahead with using the newly-purchased machines in that year’s elections, asserting they had been previously certified. The county backed Konopasek, but less than two weeks after the November 2004 election, Konopasek and Steve Trout, Konopasek’s right-hand man, were relieved of their positions as the county’s registrar of voters and assistant registrar of voters, respectively.
Page told the Sentinel he would not venture a guess as to whether or not Secretary of State Padilla can be counted upon to stand by his current certifications of the voting machines he has deemed acceptable for use in California elections.
“Questions about Padilla and his goals should be directed to the secretary of state,” said Page.
Page was asked why the county could not simply utilize the Sequoia systems by updating them with current software certified by Padilla.
“Padilla announced he would decertify the voting system the county currently uses effective 8/27/19,” said Page. “The systems that will maintain certification after that date use different hardware and software.”
Page gave indication the county is not contemplating, at least at this point, purchasing anything other than the three voting machines that have already been certified – Dominion Voting Inc.’s Democracy Suite 5.2, the County of Los Angeles’ Voting Solutions for All People Tally 1.0 and Hart Intercivic’s Verity Voting 3.0.1. “There are three voting systems that are certified and available to use after 2/27/20,” he said.
Page said he was not prepared to discuss costs or prices associated with the machines at this point. “Questions about what it costs vendors to maintain certification should be directed to the vendors,” he said.
When the Sentinel told Page its calculations of the price tag for a new system would fall somewhere near the $18 million-to-$19 million range, Page said, “We don’t want to say how much we think the system will eventually cost before we begin the procurement process, but we believe it will be significantly more than the $11.8 million the registrar of voters office might receive from the available state grant and county matching funds.”
Page indicated that because of the differences in the hardware and software used in the Sequoia system and the more current systems that have been certified, interposing a technical fix to the existing voting machines was doubtful or impossible.
In response to an inquiry as to whether the county was actively contemplating an adaptive solution rather than buying new machines altogether, Page indicated the county is most likely to meet its needs by purchasing an off-the-shelf product that has been certified by the secretary of state’s office. “There are three voting systems certified by the California Secretary of State,” said Page. “And, one of those is a partial system developed by Los Angeles County that is not currently offered for use by other counties. The remainder of Los Angeles County’s system is being reviewed by the secretary of state for certification. So, there are two vendors that could potentially provide a certified voting system to the county before the secretary of state’s deadline.”
Asked how likely it is that there will be a repeat of the decertification fiasco that occurred under Shelley with Padilla, Page said, “That is not something the registrar of voters office can predict. This question should be directed to the secretary of state.”
As to what steps Page is taking to prevent a repeat of what happened in 2004 and that he doesn’t himself become a scapegoat in the mold of Konopasek before him, Page said, “The registrar of voters’ role is to ensure that voters can exercise their right to vote on a secure, accurate, and reliable voting system that is certified by the secretary of state. The registrar of voters office will continue to do this.”
In response to an inquiry about what he will do this time to make sure that a new voting system can be upgraded rather than thrown out when it is deemed obsolete, Page said, “The capability of the certified voting systems to be upgraded through software upgrades rather than hardware replacement is a component of the systems that will be evaluated during the competitive procurement process.”
It is not unthinkable that the county will network with other counties to pressure the vendors into not continuing with their “planned obsolescence” of voting machines, Page said. “Collaboration with other jurisdictions is a principle value of the registrar of voters office,” he said. “Until the certified systems can be evaluated by the registrar of voters office, it is premature to state whether or not they can meet the registrar of voters’ current and future needs.”

Merritt Defense Seeks To Commandeer Prosecution Witnesses To Its Cause

By Mark Gutglueck
In the eleventh week of the trial of Charles Merritt, who is charged with the February 2010 bludgeoning deaths of the four members of the McStay family, the defense concentrated its firepower on two witnesses who had previously testified on behalf of the prosecution.
To Merritt’s co-counsel, Raj Maline, fell the delicate task of questioning Susan Blake, the mother of the patriarch of the McStay family. Blake’s oldest son, Joseph McStay, had been in a business arrangement with the defendant for several years when Joseph and his family in early February of 2010 inexplicably disappeared. Within two weeks of the family last being seen, the San Diego Sheriff’s Department had been contacted, after which the matter was being investigated as a multiple missing persons case, which involved a scouring of the family’s Fallbrook home, from which the four occupants appeared to have abruptly departed. As that search began in earnest and then intensified, it involved widespread media attention and was for a time sidetracked by the consideration that the McStay family’s vehicle, a 1996 Isuzu Trooper, had been found, towed and impounded from a San Ysidro shopping mall parking lot within walking distance from the Mexican border on February 8, 2010. When volunteers assisting the investigation painstakingly combed through the footage from a video camera of the San Ysidro border crossing taken on February 8, 2010, they spotted what appeared to be a family of four that was perhaps the McStays – a man, woman and two children similar in age and the height of the McStay children – crossing on foot over into Baja California amid the constant stream of tens of thousands of pedestrians who walked into Mexico that day. The graininess of the video and the angle from which it was taken made it impossible to say definitively whether those were the McStays or not. The family never returned, and the matter remained a complete mystery until more than three-and-a-half years later. On Memorial Day 2013, a motorcyclist offroading in the desert area off the I-15 Freeway between Victorville and Oro Grande came upon the top part of the skull of the youngest McStay child, whose corpse had been unearthed by coyotes from the grave he shared with his father, whose long decayed remains were yet in place. Next to that grave was one in which the bodies of Joseph McStay’s wife and the couple’s oldest son were crudely interred.
A year later, In November 2014, Merritt was arrested and charged with the gruesome murders.
According to the prosecution’s theory of the case, Charles “Chase” Merritt, through fraud and embezzlement, was pilfering thousands of dollars from his business associate’s company, Earth Inspired Products. Through that company, Joseph was selling high end decorative water fixtures – artificial waterfalls and fountains – which Merritt designed and manufactured out of steel, glass, rock and other components based upon the specifications outlined by the company’s customers and passed along to Merritt by McStay. During the initial nine weeks of the trial, prosecutors presented their side of the case, including evidence which they believe indicates Merritt in early February 2010 gained unauthorized access to one of the QuickBooks accounts for Earth Inspired Products and issued himself a series of checks.
When he learned of what Merritt was up to, either shortly before or perhaps even on February 4, 2010, Joseph McStay traveled to Rancho Cucamonga, where Merritt was then living and confronted him about his larceny, threatening to alert authorities, prosecutors allege. After Joseph McStay returned to San Diego County, the prosecution’s theory continues, Merritt later that afternoon or early that evening drove to the McStay residence in Fallbrook where he killed Joseph McStay, his wife Summer and their two sons, four-year-old Gianni and three-year-old Joseph, Jr.
Merritt then secreted the bodies for two days, in the meantime again fraudulently accessing Joseph McStay’s QuickBooks account for Earth Inspired Products, the prosecution maintains, and on February 4, 2010, February 5, 2010 and again on February 8, 2010 issued himself checks made out to himself for at total of $23,855.  Merritt then transported them up into San Bernardino County’s High Desert, an area with which Merritt was familiar since having grown up in Hesperia and attended Apple Valley High School for three years in the 1970s. It was in that spot where on February 6, 2010 he buried all four along with the hammer he had used to bludgeon his victims in shallow graves he dug in a wash off a rarely-traveled dirt road, according to the prosecution. To confuse the situation, throw authorities off his track and delay a serious investigation into the matter, the prosecution maintains Merritt then drove the McStay family’s 1996 Isuzu Trooper, which yet contained the child seats for Gianni and Joseph, to San Ysidro, where he left the vehicle in a shopping center parking lot roughly a quarter of a mile from the Mexican border.
Susan Blake had been the first witness for the prosecution after opening statements were provided to the jury by both the prosecution and the defense. Her testimony had done much to orient the jury to basic background on the case in the early going, and to put forth elements consistent with the prosecution’s narrative. In January, Blake had confirmed the rough timelines in the prosecution’s case, and she had testified that in the months after her son’s disappearance she had attempted to keep Earth Inspired Products going in anticipation of her son’s eventual return by infusions of cash so Merritt could continue working on water feature projects that were on order at the time of her son’s disappearance. Her testimony in January was that she had not seen any return on the money she had provided to Merritt for the completion of the projects, which comported with the prosecution’s suggestions that Merritt was continuously taking money out of the company and that he was in a financially desperate state, which it maintained was a crucial component of the motive for his murder of his business partner.
In the defense’s direct examination of Blake, the intention was multi-fold. One was to demonstrate that Merritt’s use of the money he was fronted from the company or which he himself accessed consisted of legitimate disbursements to him that were used for purchasing materials necessary to complete the projects he was working on. A second goal was to show the jury that it was others who were looting the Earth Inspired Products accounts rather than Merritt. A third objective was to show that prior to investigators with law enforcement agencies settling upon Merritt as a suspect and the prosecution charging him as the perpetrator, Susan Blake had been far more favorably disposed toward Merritt. Armed with Blake’s statements to detectives during the early phases of the investigation, some of which contradicted the set of assertions the prosecution is now relying upon to make the case against Merritt, Maline set about showing that there were inconsistencies between those prior statements and what she had testified to during trial. By this, Maline was seeking to convince the jury that Blake had been manipulated by the prosecution team to adjust her recollections to assist it in convicting the defendant. Maline’s task required the utmost in tact, however, as being overly aggressive in the questioning of a mother who has lost her son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren in a horrific slaying carried with it the risk of alienating the jury against his client.
Maline endeavored to demonstrate that the suggestion made by the prosecution that Joseph McStay and Chase Merritt were on the outs in the days prior to the family’s disappearance was inaccurate.
“Towards the end of 2009, let’s say November-December, you had indicated that’s the approximate time that your son Joseph had moved into the Fallbrook home,” said Maline. “Is that accurate?”
“Correct,” Blake responded.
“When they moved in, the question was posed to you, about whether or not at that time Joseph was contemplating getting rid of Chase as a welder or somebody who would make waterfalls,” Maline said. “Do you remember that line of questioning?”
“I do,” Blake replied.
“And I think you indicated – I could be wrong and you can correct me if I’m wrong – I think you indicated he was looking for other welders,” Maline said. “Was that your testimony?”
“Correct, at the end of December,” said Blake.
“And that would be ’09, going into 2010,” Maline said. “Now, there was an interview by Detective [Joseph] Steers in August of 2014. Do you recall being interviewed by Detective Steers at that time?”
“Yes,” said Blake.
“He asked you the same question about whether [Joseph McStay was] going to get rid of Chase or Dan or what was the situation regarding Joseph’s business as it pertained to Dan and Chase,” Maline said. “And do you recall him asking about that?”
“Yes,” said Susan Blake.
“Do you recall what you told Detective Steers?” Maline asked.
“Yes,” Blake said.
“What did you tell him?” Maline asked.
“Joey wanted to get a warehouse closer down to where he lived in Fallbrook or Vista so he could be over it with more control, and that he asked me about welders since I’m in the building business, did I know of anyone, because he wanted to leave Chase out and Dan he was paying off, so he would have been completed also,” Blake said.
“So your understanding was he wanted to get rid of Dan, correct?” Maline asked.
“Yes,” said Blake.
“And what about Chase?” Maline asked. “Did he want to get rid of Chase and replace him with other welders? Is that your understanding?”
“Exactly,” Blake said.
“Or add welders?” Maline continued. “Keep Chase and just add additional welders?”
“Objection,” interjected Deputy District Attorney Melissa Rodriguez.
“He wanted to get rid of him,” said Susan Blake.
“Overruled,” said Judge Michael A. Smith. “The answer remains.”
“And do you recall what you told Detective Steers in that regard, whether he wanted to keep Chase or add to Chase?” Maline asked.
“Ask me that again,” said Susan Blake.
“Well, let me just ask you this: Do you recall telling Detective [Dan] Hanke at the time, you indicated, ‘Well, I also…” Maline started.
“Objection, hearsay, improper foundation,” interrupted Supervising Deputy District Attorney Britt Imes, “unless counsel is reading the transcript.”
“I’m going to have you take a look at the transcript, okay?” said Maline.
After Blake read a portion of the transcription of her questioning by Hanke, Maline resumed.
“Does that refresh your memory as to what you told Detective Hanke?” Maline asked.
“Yes,” said Blake.
“You told Detective Hanke Joseph wanted to get additional welders and add to Chase,” said Maline.
“No,” said Blake.
When Maline sought to have Blake read the transcript of her interview with Detective Hanke, Imes interjected, “Objection, lacks foundation for the accuracy of the transcript and hearsay.”
“Sustained,” said Judge Smith. “You can call the witness later for clarification, if you wish.”
“In that line of questioning, you told Detective Hanke that …” began Maline
“Objection, same,” said Imes.
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith.
“You told Detective Hanke that Joey wanted to be his own IT [information technology] guy, right?” asked Maline.
“That is correct,” said Blake.
“And Joseph thought at that point that Dan would be gone, correct?” Maline asked.
“Objection, leading and hearsay,” said Rodriguez.
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith.
“I’m not sure when Dan would have been gone,” said Blake.
“But that’s what you told Detective Henke,” said Maline.
“Yes,” said Blake.
“You also told Detective Henke he’d still have Chase and the welders and everybody in one spot,” said Maline
“Objection,” said Imes. “Hearsay, lacks foundation.”
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith.
“Yes,” said Blake.
“And what you meant by that was Joey’s vision of having one warehouse would include Chase and the other welders…”
“Objection, leading,” said Rodriguez.
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith.
“That’s what he talked about,” said Blake.
“Detective Henke asked you specifically if Joseph wanted Chase out,” said Maline, and then referenced a specific portion of the transcript of her 2014 interview with the detective. “So, Detective Hanke asked you specifically whether Joey wanted a new builder or welder, right?” asked Maline.
“Yes, he asked me about welders,” said Blake.
“And you indicated – you answered – ‘No, he didn’t say much about Chase…’” Maline began.
“Objection, leading, hearsay, lacks foundation,” said Imes.
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith.
“He wanted to get Dan out, right?” Maline said.
“Dan first, yes,” said Blake.
“Because Dan acted as if he could flip a switch and shut his whole business down,” said Maline.
“Objection, leading, hearsay,” said Rodriguez.
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith.
“’And Joey couldn’t get it back up, and this and that’,” Maline continued, quoting from the transcript of her statements to Detective Hanke regarding a threat Kavanaugh had made to her son. “’So his concern was to buy him out, and he’s told me this, Joey, and then start over…’”
“Objection,” Rodriguez interrupted. “Is there a question or is council just reading the transcript?”
“Sustained,” said Judge Smith.
“In other words, you knew about Dan’s threat to shut down the business,” said Maline.
“Objection,” Imes loudly asserted. “It calls for hearsay and speculation.”
“It calls for hearsay and speculation,” echoed Judge Smith in sustaining the objection.
“You knew that Joseph wanted to buy Dan out, right?” Maline asked. “You knew that.”
“Yes,” said Blake.
“And did you know the reason he wanted to buy Dan out?” Maline asked.
“He wanted to have an IT guy in his warehouse where he would have full control,” said Blake.
“Was there a specific reason he didn’t want Dan in the warehouse?” Maline pressed forward.
“Objection, calls for speculation,” said Imes.
“Sustained,” said Judge Smith.
“You know why Joseph didn’t want Dan with him,” said Maline “He wanted to buy him out…”
“I don’t know why,” said Susan Blake.
“Did you tell Detective Hanke that it was because Dan had threatened to shut the business down?” asked Maline.
“Objection,” said Rodriguez.” Improper, violates in limine.”
“Sustained,” said Judge Smith.
In limine is a legal term relating to issues that are deemed by a judge, prior to the start of presentation of testimony and evidence to the jury, to be off limits in the course of a trial.
Maline made inquiries about the status of the relationship between Joseph and Summer McStay, which brought objections from the prosecution team, which were sustained by Judge Smith.
During her testimony as a prosecution witness during the first week of the trial, Blake had maintained that after the disappearance of her son and family, there had been an effort involving herself, her son Michael, Merritt and Kavanaugh to keep Joseph’s company, Earth Inspired Products, up and running in anticipation of Joseph McStay’s eventual return. Maline returned to that subject on Monday of this week.
“When you testified previously, you were asked about some checks that you wrote to Chase,” said Maline. “Do you recall that?”
“Yes,” said Susan Blake.
“You wrote some checks from your personal account,” said Maline.
“Correct,” said Blake.
“And it totaled about $5,000, correct?” asked Maline.
“Correct,” said Blake.
“And you also testified that of that 5,000 [dollars] you had given to Chase that you did not see any reimbursement,” said Maline. “Is that correct?”
Blake confirmed that was so.
Maline reestablished, through a review of Blake’s previous testimony that a bank account for the business, Earth Inspired Products, had been set up with Chase Bank after her son’s disappearance. Blake said the account that Joseph McStay had for Earth Inspired Products had been frozen by Union Bank and she acknowledged opening another account for Earth Inspired Products with her son Michael on March 23, 2010. She said it had remained open for “maybe two-and-a-half months.”
“Were you a signer on that account?” Maline asked.
“Yes,” said Susan Blake.
“Did you receive money from that account?” Maline asked.
“Not that I know of,” said Blake.
In an effort to counter assertions that Merritt had exploited Earth Inspired Products financially after Joseph McStay’s disappearance, Maline endeavored to demonstrate that despite Merritt continuing to work on water features that had been ordered prior to Joseph’s disappearance and orders that came in thereafter, he sometimes was not getting paid or provided with money to pay for the materials he needed to complete the projects. Rather, Maline suggested to the jury by the questions he asked and answers he elicited, it was Joseph’s survivors that were profiting by the extension of Earth Inspired Products.
Blake said she could not remember if a $3,300 check written to Merritt had been returned without payment on it being made, apparently for non sufficient funds. Maline displayed on the courtroom’s overhead viewing monitors a photocopy of the check indicating it had been returned unpaid.
In succession then, Maline displayed an Earth Inspired Products check dated March 31, 2010 for $350 signed by Blake and made out to herself; a funds transfer receipt dated March 20, 2010 for $500 on the Earth Inspired Products account signed by Mike McStay; a funds transfer withdrawal document relating to the Earth Inspired Products account for $5,500 to Susan Blake bearing her signed initials; another funds withdrawal of $4,000 from the Earth Inspired Products account going to Susan Blake bearing her signed initials; a $2,500 check written against the Earth Inspired Products account dated April 6, 2010 she signed made out to herself and which she endorsed; another Earth Inspired Products check for $3,300 dated April 9, 2020 made out to Susan Blake and signed by Susan Blake; an Earth Inspired Products check dated April 12 for $3,000 signed by Susan Blake and made out to Dan Kavanaugh; a check on the Earth Inspired Products account dated April 27, 2010 for $1,500 to Susan Blake signed by Susan Blake; a check dated May 6, 2010 for $1,000 from the Earth Inspired Products account signed by Susan Blake to Susan Blake with “For Dan” in the memo line; a check on the Earth Inspired Products account from Susan Blake to Susan Blake for $1,800 with the memo line “To Dan” dated May 10, 2010; a check written against the Earth Inspired Products account for $500 to Heather Martin and signed by Susan Blake.
Maline also displayed on the courtroom’s visual monitor a portion of the Earth Inspired Products account’s bank statement showing ATM and debit card withdrawals, which included an April 5 payment of $180 to the Department of State’s passport office in Los Angeles, as well as five other card purchases primarily in the Los Angeles area, which Blake said were not hers.
Blake said the checks, transfers and withdrawals were all business related, and that she had provided money to Merritt and for shipping the projects he had completed to customers.
The check made out to Dan Kavanaugh, she said, was given to him for “the business.”
“What was he doing that he needed $3,000?” Maline asked her.
“I don’t know if it was a lead he gave us or if it was for IT,” Blake said. “I don’t know.”
“On this check, this is you giving him money, correct?” Maline asked with regard to one of the checks made out to herself but which carried the notation “For Dan” in the memo line.
“Correct,” Blake said.
“And you don’t recognize, you don’t remember what you gave him money for, correct?” Maline asked.
“No,” said Blake.
Blake acknowledged Kavanaugh “was not building” fountains.
The $500 check to Heather Martin, Joseph McStay’s ex-wife, was a child support payment for Jonah, Joseph’s oldest child, Blake testified.
Maline asked Blake about her testimony under cross examination as a prosecution witness in January.
“So when I asked you when you first testified whether or not you gave your bank records to the detectives, you told me you had given them your bank records,” said Maline. “Do you recall that?”
“My copies?” Blake asked.
“Your copies and you gave them your bank information, correct?” Maline asked.
“I gave them, yes,” said Blake.
“In fact, you had a lot of different bank accounts, right, especially at Wells Fargo?” Maline asked.
“Objection, relevance,” Rodriguez protest.
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith.
“Is that correct?” Maline asked.
“My accounts?” Blake said, sounding a bit unsure.
“Yes,” said Maline.
“I had one at Wells Fargo,” Blake said.
“You had one account at Wells Fargo,” Maline said, sounding skeptical about the number.
“Uh-huh,” Blake said.
“Alright, so did you give the detectives these bank records, permission about the Chase bank account?” Maline asked.
“Asked and answered,” Rodriguez object. “Foundation.”
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith.
“Yes, I gave all the information to the detectives,” Blake said.
“Do you know which detective you gave this permission to, on the Chase Bank?” Maline asked.
“I want to say DuGal,” said Blake, her reference being to San Diego County Sheriff’s Department Detective Troy Dugal.
“Now, when I asked you you more than one time, the last time that you testified, and even again before you started this morning if you’d ever taken money out of that account, your answer was that you had not,” said Maline. “Do you recall that?”
“Yes,” said Blake
“Seeing these checks, I totaled them, and the total of the checks comes to $20,450,” said Maline. “You saw that two of them were for Dan, so we can take 2,800 [dollars] from that, but the rest were made to you. And you don’t have an answer as to what you did with that money, correct?”
“Objection, argumentative,” said Rodriguez.
“She can answer,” Judge Smith said.
“That money would have gone back to Chase or everything towards the business,” Blake responded.
“Well, it’s funny you mention that, because in this statement there’s several checks made to Chase…” Maline started.
“Objection, argumentative,” said Supervising Deputy District Attorney Sean Daugherty.
“Sustained, argumentative,” ruled Judge Smith.
“There were several checks written to Chase to complete waterfall projects on this account,” Maline said.
“Objection, foundation,” asserted Rodriguez.
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith.
“You know that, right?” Maline asked.
“Yes,” Blake said.
“So, if you’re writing checks to Chase, you wouldn’t then cash a check and then give him cash, would you?” Maline asked.
“Objection, argumentative,” Supervising Deputy District Attorney Sean Daugherty interposed.
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith
“Yes, I have given him cash,” Blake said.
“Of the money of the money that we listed out, that I listed and showed you with those checks, did you give any of that money to your son, Michael?” Maline asked.
“No,” Blake said.
Deputy District Attorney Melissa Rodriguez on cross examination sought to offset the suggestion that Susan Blake had in any way profited by her son’s disappearance and death.
When you opened this account – this account was opened in March I believed you said, right?” Rodriguez asked.
“Yes,” said Blake.
“And that would have been after your son went missing, right?” Rodriguez asked.
“Correct,” Blake responded.
“To your knowledge was the other account your son had – Mr. McStay, Joe, Joey – the account he had at Union Bank was frozen, correct?” Rodriguez asked.
“Objection, foundation,” said James McGee, Merritt’s defense co-counsel.
“Overruled,” Judge Smith said. “It was covered on direct [examination].”
“Yes,” said Blake. “I was told it was frozen.”
Maline moved forward with an effort to demonstrate that Merritt was earnestly attempting to keep Earth Inspired Products going in the months following Joseph McStay’s disappearance.
“Did you tell customers, when they called for their waterfalls, that Chase was the one responsible for building the waterfalls?” Maline inquired.
“I don’t remember my conversations with any of the fountain people,” Blake said.
“You said you got calls from different people, though, right?” Maline asked.
“Correct,” Blake said.
“And when they called and said ,’Where’s my waterfall?’ you told them that Chase was the one responsible to build it, right?” Maline asked.
“Objection, assumes facts not in evidence that such a call was made,” Imes said.
“Overruled,” Judge Smith said.
“I would ask Chase, yes,” said Blake.
“I’m asking you what you told the customers,” said Maline.
“I don’t remember exactly what we told the customers,” Blake said. “We were trying to keep them calm.”
“You do recall that Chase went to Saudi Arabia and he finished the Saudi Arabian waterfall, correct?” Maline asked.
“I never received…” Blake began
“Objection, leading and foundation,” Deputy District Attorney Melissa Rodriguez interrupted.
“Overruled,” Judge Smith said.
“I never received confirmation on that,” said Blake. “I did tell Chase those funds needed to go back into the bank of Joey’s.”
“And you recall that when Chase was in Saudi Arabia that he sent you an email,” Maline said.
“Not from Saudi – I don’t know,” Blake said.
Maline then provided her with an email from Merritt in which he complained about her telling customers back in the United States that he was responsible for completing the projects they had on order while he was engaged in finishing the project he was involved with in Saudi Arabia, and that he had not been provided with the funding or materials needed to finish the projects they were inquiring about. After she read it, Blake said, “I don’t remember this email.”
Maline had her review a second email from Merritt sent from Saudi Arabia.
“I don’t remember seeing this,” Blake said.
“So you don’t recall these emails?” Maline said.
“No,” said Blake.
“There were some questions asked of you regarding the payment from Saudi Arabia,” said Maline, referencing Blake’s testimony in January. “Do you recall that?”
“Yes,” said Blake.
“And you indicated your understanding was Chase got the money,” said Maline. “I think you said it was like 16 or 17 thousand [dollars]?”
“Objection,” said Rodriguez. “Misstates testimony.”
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith. “She can answer if that is correct.”
“Is that what you testified to?” Maline asked.
“I don’t know what the exact amount was,” Blake said.
“But you indicated Chase had received that money and they asked if any of that money was ever given to you,” Maline said. “Do you recall that?”
“Objection,” Rodriguez said. “Asked and answered. This was covered in her first testimony, Your Honor.”
“Overruled,” Judge Smith said.
“I never knew that he completed the job or received the funds but that the funds should’ve went back, all of it, into Joey’s account,” Blake said.
“But do you recall Miss Rodriguez asking you when the money came in to Chase did you get any of that money?” Maline asked. “Do you recall her asking you that?”
“I never received any money, any funds,” Blake said.
“Do you know whether or not Dan Kavanaugh was receiving payments from various customers on behalf of Earth Inspired Products?” Maline asked.
“I have no idea what he received,” said Blake.
Kavanaugh, who was assisting McStay in bringing customers in to Earth Inspired Products via the internet, has been pushed to the margins of the case by the prosecution. The defense, however, has sought to portray Kavanaugh as a central figure in the matter, suggesting that he, and not Merritt, slaughtered the McStay family over his bitterness at Joseph McStay for acing him out of the Earth Inspired Products operation. The defense maintains that Merritt lacked any motive in killing McStay in that McStay’s marketing of the water features represented a major revenue stream for him. The defense assigns far greater motive to Kavanaugh insofar that at the time of Joseph McStay’s death he was on the brink of terminating his business relationship with Kavanaugh. After McStay’s death, according to the defense, Kavanaugh succeeded in manipulating Susan Blake and Michael McStay to allow him to take more than $100,000 out of Earth Inspired Products and then profit further by selling the business.
After a series of questions, Maline elicited from Blake that in July of 2010 she had taken possession of a round table that was in the dining area of the McStay home where prosecutors have suggested the murders may have occurred, and that she gave it to one of her friend’s sons in late 2010 or early 2011. She said that the table was since sold. After reviewing a police report, Blake confirmed that she had told the police she had seen no blood on the table.
Called by the defense to testify on Tuesday was another prosecution witness, San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Sergeant Joseph Steers, who in 2014, when he was yet a detective, had covered much of the ground in the department’s investigation into the homicides.
Under questioning by Merritt co-defense counsel James McGee, Steers said he went to the San Ysidro shopping mall from which the McStay family’s 1996 Isuzu Trooper was towed on the evening of February 8, 2010. One issue he took up while he was there was to review the pay phones in the parking lot. Upon getting there, Steers said, he found there was only one pay phone. He then ascertained the phone number so he could, he testified, “determine if that phone number turned up on the call detail records for some of the involved parties in this case.”
McGee asked him if he reviewed the phone records for the home and cell phone of Charles Merritt’s common law wife Catherine Jarvis, Joseph McStay’s cell phone, the McStay residence phone, Summer McStay’s cell phone and Charles Merritt’s cell phone. Steers indicated he had and had not found the pay phone number on any of those records.
McGee also asked Steers about an interview he had conducted with Susan Blake on August 14, 2014.
“During that interview, did you discuss with Miss Blake her receiving a call from Michael McStay?” McGee asked.
“At which time?” asked Steers.
“When he was at the home [of the McStay family] on February 14 of 2010,” said McGee.
“Yes,” said Steers.
“Did she tell you the substance of the phone call she had with Michael McStay?” McGee asked.
“Yes,” said Steers.
“Did she tell you that Michael said he was…” McGee started.
“Objection,” Imes said, interrupting the question. “Hearsay.”
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith.
“And did she tell you that Michael said he was…..
“Objection, leading,” Imes once more interrupted the question.
“Overruled,” Judge Smith said.
“Did she tell you that Michael said he was going to break a window to get in to check the residence?” McGee asked.
“I don’t remember if they said break a window or they were looking for a way to go through a window,” said Steers.
“Do you remember her telling you he said he was going to break a window and she told him ‘No. Look for an open window’? Does that sound right?” McGee pushed.
“Objection,” said Imes. “Asked and answered.”
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith.
“I don’t recall the exact phrasing,” said Steers. “I know their conversation was looking for a window to go through.”
McGee then had Steers review his report.
“What did Miss Blake tell you was the substance of the conversation with Michael McStay just on the entry through the window?” McGee asked. “That Michael said he would break a window to go in and check on the residence, and that Susan told him to look for an open window first and see if he could go in,” said Steers.
Steers acknowledged interviewing Michael McStay on September 20, 2014 and that he spoke to him about his access to Earth Inspired Products’ financial records. Steers testified that Michael McStay possessed financial information relating to the company but that Michael McStay had told Steers he did not have personal access to the company’s financial records.
When McGee attempted to pursue that matter further, prosecution objections were granted and the line of questioning was terminated.
McGee explored with Steers the taps that were placed upon Charles Merritt’s phone, which Steers referred to as “wire intercepts.” Steers said the tracking began in August 2014 and the electronic eavesdropping started in September 2014. He said the department terminated the electronic surveillance and tracking at the end of October 2014.
“You actually got two different types of wire intercept orders for my client, correct?” McGee asked. “One was for like a ping registry locator and one was for a wiretap where you could actually listen. Would that be accurate?”
“There’s two separate types of warrants,” said Steers. “Only one is a wire. The other is a ping.”
“And you got both warrants, correct?” McGee asked.
“Correct,” said Steers.
“Let’s talk about the first, which is a GPS ping,” said McGee. “What kid of information do you get from a wire or a search warrant like that?”
“Once you identify the cell phone number and have it authorized you get call detail records in live time showing phone calls that are being made from that phone number as well as GPS locations of the cell phone towers where that cell phone is interacting in order to complete the calls,” said Steers.
“You say you get like live call detail records,” said McGee. “So, if somebody makes a call, you don’t get to listen to it but you see he dialed this number and it’s this tower. Would that be accurate?”
“Correct,” said Steers. “You do not get content.”
“And what’s the purpose from an investigative standpoint to get that information?” McGee asked.
“You determine if the phone is still in use,” said Steers. “You determine the other phone numbers that person is contacting with, the general areas that person is at or associates themselves to.”
“Is it helpful for surveillance?” asked McGee.
“Yes,” said Steers.
“And was one of the reasons you obtained this was to help surveil Mr. Merritt?” McGee asked.
“Yes,” said Steers.
“Another thing it does is it gives you a ping to the phone at certain intervals, correct?” McGee asked.
“To a cell phone tower that is used in relation to that cell, yes,” said Steers.
“And so it happens every 15 to 18 minutes, I believe you said,” McGee said.
“Yes, sir,” said Steers.
“And the reason for that is if the person’s not using the phone it will still track where they are,” said McGee.
“If their phone is active, yes,” said Steers.
“If it’s receiving a signal you can get a ping to get a registration of where it is,” said McGee.
“Correct,” said Steers.
“And you did that in this case, correct, between late September and through October?” McGee asked.
“Correct,” said Steers, “and because the ping [monitoring] was prior to the wire [monitoring] that was actually August, the end of August until October.”
“Of 2014?” inquired Judge Smith.
“Of 2014, sir, yes,” said Steers.
“You originally received just an initial warrant for ping registry and you got a subsequent wiretap, which encompasses both, correct?” McGee asked.
“Correct,” said Steers.
“And in your report, you noted information when you lost contact with the phone,” said McGee.
“Correct,” said Steers.
“You deemed it to have lost contact when a ping was sent out and nothing was received back from the phone,” said McGee.
“Correct,” said Steers.
“And so it missed one ping, you are like, ‘Okay that’s a 15 to 18 minute interval we don’t know where he is,” said McGee. “Would that be a fair thing to say?”
“Correct,” said Steers.
“And if it was multiple pings, then you could put them together and say, ‘This is approximately how much time we don’t know where he is,’” McGee said.
“Correct,” said Steers.
“And you documented all of those,” McGee said.
“I believe I documented only the time periods he was on the wire, not on the ping, as well,” said Steers.
McGee then went through each of those times a ping did not register for Merritt’s cell phone while it was being monitored and Steers verified it.
Accordingly, Steers confirmed that on September 25, 2014 contact was lost for 18 minutes; on September 26 contact was lost twice, once for a duration of 19 minutes and another time for 18 minutes; on September 29 contact was lost for 19 minutes; on September 30 contact was lost twice, once for 37 minutes and another time for 18 minutes; late in the night of October 2 into the early morning of October 3 contact was lost for 54 minutes; for an extended period of 12 hours and 21 minutes contact was lost during the night of October 4 until the morning of October 5; later on October 5 contact was lost for an hour and 49 minutes and again for 36 minutes; on October 7 contact was lost for 17 minutes; on October 10 contact was lost for 36 minutes; on October 13 contact was lost for 19 minutes; on October 15 contact was lost for 18 minutes; on October 21 contact was lost for 18 minutes; on October 22 the phone lost tower contact for 37 minutes; on October 24 contact was lost for one hour and 30 minutes; and on October 27 contact was lost for 36 minutes.
McGee took the opportunity Steers’ report and the reference to those records presented to drive home the point that cell phones periodically lose contact with cell phone towers without the phones being powered down or being put in airplane mode. An element of the prosecution’s case against Merritt consists of periods of time on February 4, 2010 and again on February 6, 2010, when his phone was not in contact with any cell tower. The prosecution has suggested that those times correspond to when Merritt was killing the McStay family in their Fallbrook home and when he was in the High Desert two days later burying the bodies. Prosecutors maintain Merritt had shut his phone off at those crucial times to avoid his whereabouts being tracked through his cell phone pings.
McGee turned to the eavesdropping the department did on Merritt as he used his phone.
“The wires were obtained in September of 2014, correct?” McGee asked.
“Correct, sir,” said Steers.
“And you wanted to listen to his phone calls,” said McGee.
“Correct, sir,” said Steers.
“Now the disappearance of the McStays occurred basically in February 2010,” said McGee.
“Correct, sir,” said Steers.
“What’s the purpose of getting a wire four-and-a-half years later from an investigative standpoint?” McGee asked. “What were you hoping to hear?”
“As we continued our investigation,” said Steers, “and we would contact the different parties involved in the investigation, it was our hope that we would hear some conversation from Mr. Merritt with possible other involved parties, other suspects if there were any, or any person he was confiding into in reference to the case.”
“[Is it] common practice to get kind of pressure, put pressure on the subject that’s being monitored in the hope it encourages them to say something in a panicked state?” McGee asked. “Would that be fair to say?”
“It puts pressure not directly, but indirectly,” said Steers.
“You attempt to put on pressure, hoping they would talk on the phone,” said McGee.
“Indirectly, yes,” said Steers.
“So, that’s kind of the goal, correct?” asked McGee.
“Correct,” said Steers.
“So you will do these, and you will either contact the person, or contact people they know, so hopefully they start talking about the case,” said McGee.
“Correct,” said Steers.
“And that’s why when the wire tap was up you interviewed Catherine Jarvis?” McGee asked.
“Correct,” said Steers.
The question was in reference to Jarvis, Merritt’s common law wife and the mother of his three children. Last week, when Jarvis appeared as a defense witness, the prosecution during her cross examination played a recording of a phone tap of a call between her and Merritt on October 11, 2014. That call was made the day after homicide detectives had conducted an extensive interview with Jarvis, implying and directly stating throughout the interrogation that Merritt was the murderer of the McStay family, that she had in some way assisted him, and that she was lying to shield herself and him.
“And that’s when you interviewed Mr. Merritt,” McGee added.
“Correct,” Steers said.
“And you said you hoped he would contact other subjects involved in the investigation if there were any, correct?” McGee asked. “That’s one of the things you told us you can observe or obtain that information from these warrants and ping registries, right?”
“Correct,” said Steers.
“And so you followed him and you listened to his phone calls,” said McGee.
“Correct,” Steers said.
“Did you ever see him come into contact with an unknown subject who you considered a target of the investigation?” McGee asked.
“No,” said Steers.
“Did he ever talk to anybody, saying, you know, something about the investigation, something about the murders with an unknown party?” McGee asked.
“No,” Steers said.
In questioning Steers about the probable cause statement he wrote in 2014 to get a search warrant for the McStay family home that at that point was occupied by another couple, McGee dwelt on Steers making reference to there being dried paint in a paint tray when family members and San Diego County Sheriff’s investigators came into the home less than two weeks after the family went missing in 2010 as a fact that supported his supposition that there might be evidence in the home relating to the murders. Steers did not recall making the reference in writing the request for the warrant. When McGee sought to illustrate that Steers had either misunderstood what another witness, McStay family friend McGyver McCarber, had said about the paint tray or that he had misrepresented the facts in the affidavit to obtain the warrant, Imes objected and Judge Smith sustained the objection on relevancy grounds and Imes’ contention that McGee was being argumentative with the witness.
Under cross examination by Imes, Steers said he had measured the travel time from the McStay residence to the parking lot at the shopping mall in Ysidro where the McStay family vehicle was found on February 8, 2010, observing that he had made the drive in 50 minutes. He also told Imes he had traveled the distance between Merritt’s home in Rancho Cucamonga to the McStay’s Fallbrook home in approximately one hour.
On subsequent redirect examination by McGee, Steers said that he had made the drive from Fallbrook to San Ysidro on Tuesday October 14, 2014, leaving at 10:49 a.m. and arriving at 11:39 a.m.
“Not rush hour traffic,” McGee said.
“There was traffic, but it was not rush hour,” Steers said.
“And the distance you traveled was how far?” McGee asked.
“Approximate 60.6 miles,” Steers said.
“And how fast were you driving?” McGee asked.
“The speed limit,” Steers said.
“What did you put in the last line of your report?” McGee asked.
“75 miles per hour,” said Steers.
“And the trip you took from Rancho Cucamonga to the Fallbrook address,” said McGee. “I assume you started there that morning.”
“Yes,” said Steers.
“And what time did you leave Rancho Cucamonga?” McGee asked.
“Approximately 08:31 hours [8:31 a,m.],” Steers said.
“And what time did you arrive at the Avocado Vista Lane address?” McGee asked.
“Approximately 09:31 hours,” said Steers.
“What was the distance?” McGee asked.
“Approximately 68.3 miles,” Steers said.
“How fast were you traveling at that point?” McGee asked.
“Seventy-to-75 miles per hour,” said Steers. “It was moderate traffic.”
“Were you checking the drive time from Rancho [Cucamonga] to the Fallbrook house to see how long it would take for Mr. Merritt to drive down?” asked McGee.
“Objection, that would call for speculation,” Imes said.
“Overruled,” Judge Smith said.
“Yes,” Steers replied.
“And the date was important to see how long the drive would be on February 4, 2010, the date when there was last contact between Mr. Merritt and Mr. McStay that evening, correct?” McGee asked.
“Correct,” said Steers.
“So, why didn’t you drive from 5:30 [p.m.] to Rancho to see how long it took you at that time under the same conditions?” McGee asked.
“I don’t know,” said Steers.
“And you did this in October,” said McGee. “What was the weather like when you did this experiment?”
“I recall that it was clear,” Steers said.
McGee focused on the traveling times for two separate reasons. The travel time from Rancho Cucamonga to Fallbrook is significant because the prosecution’s theory is that Merritt drove from his home in Rancho Cucamonga to Fallbrook on February 4, 2010, where he killed the family, stashed the bodies and then returned to Rancho Cucamonga, having departed on that gruesome errand sometime during the 5 o’clock p.m. hour, at the height of rush hour. Thus, the prosecution’s timeline for these events is a tight one. That Steers chose to time his transit between Rancho Cucamonga and Fallbrook at an hour when the 15 Freeway is relatively free of traffic snarl-ups could represent, the defense suggested, a further instance of the prosecution using questionable evidence to propound its theory of Merritt’s guilt. The travel time from the McStay residence to San Ysidro is of importance because the prosecution has suggested that a trace amount of Merritt’s DNA detected on the Isuzu Trooper’s steering wheel and gearshift is an indication that it was Merritt who drove the McStay family vehicle to the border in an effort to mislead investigators and confuse the situation. Previously, however, McGee had elicited testimony from a sheriff’s department criminalist, Donald Jones, that the DNA of someone who had last driven a vehicle would be present in substantial quantity on that vehicle’s steering wheel, most likely in amounts equal to the regular driver of the vehicle, if that trip was of any substantial duration. The defense contends that the consideration that Joseph McStay is the major contributor of the DNA on the Isuzu’s steering wheel and that Merritt is deemed to be neither a major nor minor contributor but rather an even less substantial trace contributor is an indication that his DNA is present in the vehicle only because of transfer that came about because of his casual contact with Joseph McStay and his previous presence in the car as a passenger. That it would take 50 minutes in light traffic to reach San Ysidro from Fallbrook and likely somewhat longer than that during the time of day when the freeway system is more heavily traveled, together with Joseph McStay being the primary contributor of the DNA on the steering wheel, is an indication it was Joseph McStay and not Merritt who drove the Trooper to San Ysidro, the defense maintains.
In his cross examination of Steers, Imes sought to downplay the defense suggestion that because there was no evidence that Merritt had used the payphone at the San Ysidro shopping mall to summon Jarvis to retrieve him after he took the Isuzu Trooper on its one-way trip to the border, that meant Merritt had not driven the vehicle there. Imes implied there were other was for Merritt to find his way back to Fallbrook.
“Your observations at the San Ysidro lot besides the telephones were taxis, correct?” Imes asked Steers.
“Yes, sir,” said Steers.
“Taxis were plentiful, weren’t they?” Imes asked.
“Correct,” Steers said.
“Isn’t it true there is also public transportation… the metro or the trolley in San Diego, right?” Imes continued.
“Sure,” said Steers.
Imes elicited from Steers that Merritt, who was using AT&T as his cell phone service provider in 2010, was a Sprint Nextel customer in 2014.
In response to Imes’ request, Steers delineated multiple times in October 2014 when the ping connections to Merritt’s phone ended because he had shut his phone off while he was engaged at a casino, including October 4, October 5, October 10, twice on October 14, October 20, October 24 through October 25, and October 26.
The prosecution maintains that it was out of financial desperation that Merritt first stole from Joseph McStay and then murdered him after he was caught doing so. The prosecution has repeatedly throughout the trial portrayed Merritt’s gambling addiction as the morass in which his financial desperation fomented.
Merritt’s misrepresentations to those closest to him are an indication of his involvement in the murders, Imes suggested.
“When you have a wiretap, you monitor calls, isn’t that correct?” Imes asked.
“Yes, sir,” said Steers.
“You actually listen to them and transcribe them,” Imes said.
“Yes, sir,” replied Steers.
“That was actually done in this case, right?” Imes asked.
“Yes, sir,” said Steers.
“Isn’t it true on October 3, 2014 the defendant had a conversation with his sister Juanita after her and her boyfriend were contacted?” Imes asked.
“Yes, sir,” Steers said.
“And isn’t it true during that conversation on October 3, Juanita asked the defendant where the gravesites were located, and he provided a description?” Imes continued.
“Yes, sir,” said Steers.
“In contrast, on October 22, 2014, isn’t it true that he had a phone conversation with Catherine Jarvis?” Imes asked.
“Yes,” Steers said.
“And is it true that during that conversation that Catherine Jarvis asked where the gravesites were located?” Imes asked.
“Yes,” said Steers.
“And isn’t it true that the defendant indicated he only found out where the gravesites were from his sister Juanita?” Imes asked.
“Yes,” responded Steers.
“And in each of those phone calls isn’t it true that he was contacting witnesses after a time he believed they had been contacted or interviewed by law enforcement?” Imes asked.
“Yes,” said Steers.
“In fact, in one of those conversations with Catherine it was shortly after the conclusion of her interview he realized she was still in the presence of the deputy, correct?” asked Imes.
“Objection, vague as to time,” said McGee.
“Sustained,” said Judge Smith. “Calls for speculation and a conclusion.”
Imes came back at it. “On October 10, 2014,” he prefaced, “isn’t it true that the defendant was talking to Catherine Jarvis after her interview?”
“Yes,” said Steers.
“And something occurred during the course of that phone call to make the presence of law enforcement known to the caller,” said Imes.
“Yes,” Steers confirmed.
“What was it?” Imes asked.
“Catherine Jarvis paused and I don’t recall the time it was stated, but I know the other investigators were still with Catherine Jarvis because I was part of that investigation at the time of the call,” said Steers.
“And what happened to that call after that pause?” Imes asked.
“The defendant hung up the phone,” Steers said.
Also called to testify by the defense this week was Alex Quick, a special agent and supervisor with the California Department of Justice.
On February 19, 2010, while working as a member of California’s major crimes unit, he was present at the McStay family residence when San Diego County Sheriff’s Department investigators, led by Homicide Detective Troy Dugal, served a search warrant to advance the missing persons case relating to the McStay family. Quick’s presence had been requested by DuGal.
During that search, Quick’s talent with lockpicking was brought to bear when he was assigned to carry out the search of the room on the ground floor of the McStay residence at the far end of the hall behind the kitchen, which served as Joseph McStay’s home office for Earth Inspired Products. The large lower drawer on the right hand side of the desk in the room was locked, Quick testified, and he used the lockpicking tools he had to defeat the lock.
There was nothing inside the drawer, Quick said, other than “just empty file folders.”
McGee inquired if a box of checks for Earth Inspired Products was actually in the drawer.
“Are you sure you didn’t find those checks in the locked drawer?” McGee asked.
“The drawer was empty that I opened up,” said Quick.
McGee asked if the locking mechanism on the desk was such that the lock to one drawer controlled the locks to the other drawers. Quick indicated it was not.
McGee displayed on the courtroom’s overhead visual monitors a photo of the room taken after the search was underway showing a box sitting on a chair, followed by a closeup of the box and its contents, consisting of Earth Inspired Products checks.
“Can you tell me where those checks were found?” McGee asked.
“No,” said Quick.

Overlooked Carrillo Will Vie Versus Rowe In 2020 Third District Election

Chris Carrillo, who was San Bernardino County Third District Supervisor James Ramos’s deputy chief of staff, will vie for the supervisorial post next year.
Ramos, who was first elected supervisor in 2012 and was reelected in 2016, successfully ran for the California Assembly in the 40th District in 2018. Ramos’s former colleagues on the board ignored his request that they appoint Carrillo to serve out the remaining two years on his term. Instead, supervisors Robert Lovingood, Janice Rutherford and Curt Hagman, all of whom are Republicans, settled upon former Yucca Valley Councilwoman Dawn Rowe, also a Republican. The lone Democrat remaining on the board, Josie Gonzales, consigned herself to the inevitable and voted with her colleagues to have Rowe replace Ramos for the two years remaining on his term.
Lovingood, Rutherford and Hagman failed to honor Ramos’s request and spurned Carrillo in large measure because the three are Republicans and both Ramos and Carrillo are Democrats. Though local offices in California are defined as being nonpartisan ones, in San Bernardino County in particular, party affiliation is of significance in who holds office at both the municipal and county levels, as wells as on the boards of school, fire and water districts. For more than 40 years, San Bernardino County has been a Republican bastion, such that for the last two decades, it has been out of step with the rest of the state, which has grown overwhelmingly Democratic in its orientation, with the Democrats holding a supermajority in both houses of the state legislature, control of the governorship, the state attorney general’s office, and the California Secretary of State’s office. Both of California’ s two U.S. senators are Democrats. Of the 53 members of California’s Congressional Delegation, 46 are Democrats and seven are Republicans. In San Bernardino County, however, currently 16 of its 24 incorporated cities/towns have more Republican members on their councils than Democrats. Four of the five members of the board of supervisors are Republicans. The district attorney is a Republican. The sheriff is a Republican. While the number of registered voters registered as Republicans in San Bernardino County in the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and into the first decade of the Third Millennium outran the number of those registered to vote as Democrats, in 2009 the number of registered Democrats in the county eclipsed the number of Republicans. Nonetheless, the GOP has continued to dominate San Bernardino County politically, even as the gap in favor of the Democrats in terms of registered voters has grown. As of this week, of the county’s 969,473 voters, 377,1436 or 38.9 percent, are registered Democrats, while 279,691 or 28.8 percent are registered as Republicans. The number of voters with no political party association whatsoever, 254,462 or 26.2 percent, comes close to the number of Republicans, while voters registered with the more obscure parties such as the Peace and Freedom, Libertarian, Green and American Independent account for 8 percent of the total. Despite having a four-to-three advantage over the Republicans in the county number-wise, the Democrats have consistently found themselves outhustled and outmaneuvered by their Republican Party counterparts in San Bernardino County. The Republican Central Committee sports highly motivated, highly coordinated and for the most part cooperative members who make concerted electioneering efforts, including appealing to non-affiliated voters and those with the marginalized political parties, to drive them toward supporting Republican candidates. The Republicans have proven more resourceful, energetic and generous in their efforts to raise money and endow the political war chests of Republican candidates than have the Democrats been effective in their support of their party’s candidates. Equally as important, registered Republicans consistently turn out to vote at the polls or through mail-in ballots at a clip nearly one-and-one third greater than Democratic Party-aligned voters in the county.
In the county’s Fifth Supervisorial District, where Democrat Josie Gonzales holds office, the Democrats hold a voter registration advantage approaching 3-to-1 over the Republicans, as 85,621 or 48. 8 percent of the district’s 175,475 voters are registered Democrats and 32,301 or 18.4 percent are registered Republicans. In the Fourth District, the Republicans, with 46,949 or 25.6 percent of the district’s voters, lag significantly behind the Democrats, with 75,904 registered voters or 41.5 percent. Despite that, Curt Hagman, a Republican, is supervisor. In the Second District, which a generation ago was at the epicenter of the region’s rising tide of Republicanism, Democrats have opened up a significant lead over the Republicans in terms of voter registration numbers, with the Democrats claiming 80,519 party affiliates, or 38 percent, against the 64,444 Republicans, or 30.4 percent. Still the same, Janice Rutherford, a Republican, is county supervisor in the Second District. Only in the county’s First District do the Republicans have more voters registered than the Democrats, as the Grand Old Party’s 63,253 voters – 33.7 percent – outnumber the 33.1 percent, or 62,045, who are Democrats. Robert Lovingood rules the roost their as county supervisor.
As late as last year, the Republicans yet held a lead – a very slim one – over the Democrats in terms of voter registration in the county’s Third District. The Third District is the county’s most diverse district, consisting of the heavily urbanized metropolitan area entailing east San Bernardino and Redlands, the foothill community of Highland, while extending into the somewhat unique communities of Grand Terrace and Loma Linda, the rustic communities of Yucaipa, Mentone and Oak Glen, the mountain community of Big Bear and the desert cities of Barstow, Twentynine Palms and the town of Yucca Valley. Redlands was for a century a major cultural and social center and the home of the county’s Republican political machine. Within the last six months, the Democrats have inched ahead of the Republicans in terms of voter registration in the Third District. Those numbers now stand at 73,057 voters or 34.6 percent for the Democrats to the Republicans’ 72,744 voters or 34.4 percent.
In 2012, James Ramos, who was at that time the chairman of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, used his personal wealth and that of his tribe’s members to promote his candidacy for Third District supervisor. The tribe’s San Manuel Casino was by that time, as it remains, one of the most successful economic engines in the area. Ramos’s demonstrated willingness to fuel his candidacy with as much money as would be required for him to win, coupled with a rare internecine Republican Party dispute between then-incumbent Third District Supervisor Neil Derry and his predecessor as supervisor, Dennis Hansberger, who was a primary figure in the Redlands Republican Political Machine, led to a faction of the Republican Party withdrawing its support of Derry. In this way, Ramos, a Democrat with the support of a fragment of the Third District’s Republican base, ousted Derry as Third District supervisor in 2012, elevating Ramos to the vaunted position of supervisor. He handily won reelection in 2016 against the poorly-financed Donna Muñoz.
It appears that Ramos felt that the mandates he had as a result of his elections in the Third District in 2012 and 2016 gave him, if not outright appointive power to choose his replacement to fill out that last two years of his term as supervisor when he departed to Sacramento to take up his newly elected post in the Assembly, then at least a voice in the selection process that should have been given careful consideration. When the board of supervisors undertook to carry out a recruitment effort to replace Ramos late last year – a process that was rigged from the outset in that both Lovingood and Rutherford were committed ahead of time to ensuring Rowe’s selection and Hagman, as a Republican, was fated toward supporting the consensus of his party colleagues on the board – the board carried out what was essentially a sham examination process in which the 48 applicants were reduced to 13, including Rowe, who were interviewed by the board publicly in a specially-called session on Tuesday December 11. The board slighted Ramos and Carrillo at that time in that Carrillo was not among the 13 semi-finalists. Those 13 were reduced to five finalists – Rowe, former Chino Councilman/current Big Bear Councilman William Jahn, former Assemblyman/State Senator Bill Emmerson, Congressional Candidate Sean Flynn and Loma Linda Mayor Rhodes Rigsby, all of whom are Republicans, whereafter Rowe was selected. Despite suggestions that Rowe might be able to ameliorate the affront to Ramos by moving to name Carrillo as her chief of staff, she did not do so, for among other reasons that she considers his Democratic Party-affiliation to be antithetical to her governance formula.
Rather, Rowe hired as staffers two Republican Party political operatives – Matt Knox and Dillon Lesovsky – whose reputation as dirty tricksters proceeds them. Indications were that Knox and Lesovsy have been given license to engineer Rowe’s 2020 reelection campaign from their county offices. Rowe, pointedly, has not moved to squelch those reports, which is widely perceived as an effort to ward off opposition next year.
In overlooking Carrillo and ignoring Ramos, the Republican members of the board may have bought themselves and their party a level of opposition in the 2020 Third District election they had not counted upon.
Carrillo almost at once began preparations for 2020. An attorney, his father is a licensed contractor/developer associated with the San Manuel Indian Tribe. With James Ramos in Sacramento, a Democratic town, he is now firmly ensconced in the heartland of the Democratic Party. The combination of Democratic Party money, together with Ramos’s own personal wealth and that of his tribe members, could very easily be directed toward independent expenditure committees supporting Carrillo which can sidestep the electoral spending limits members of the board several years ago imposed on themselves.
It is anticipated that tomorrow, March 23, the Mojave Desert Democratic Club will endorse Carrillo for election in the Third District next year. Carrillo and his supporters are now working on getting the endorsement of the San Bernardino County Democratic Central Committee and lining up further support.

Forum… Or Against ’em

By Count Friedrich von Olsen
THEY SAY IT’S HARD TO ARGUE with success. And when people doing gardening across these United States found weeds growing in their gardens or pesky weeds sprouting up in the cracks in their sidewalks or between their sidewalk and driveway, they would reach for some Roundup, a glyphosate-based herbicide formulated and developed by Monsanto, which was sold in handy-dandy plastic spray bottles. With just a few squeezes of the handle of the easily-aimed spray nozzle at the top of the bottle, enough mist would enshroud the unwanted plant. The next day the effects were in full evidence, as even the greenest and most persistent weed would have begun to wilt, and a day later would be turning brown. The poison would work itself from the surface into the internal tissue of the plant, ultimately throughout its system and clear into the roots. While the more fastidious keepers of their yards might pull the plants out after two or three days, that was not necessary because the plant would dessicate to the point that within a week to ten days, it would be virtually gone. Isn’t that neat! Roundup was an example of entrepreneurial success and an example of how American ingenuity works…
IF ONLY THE WORLD WERE that simple. You see, the active ingredients in Roundup were an isopropylamine salt of glyphosate and polyethoxylated tallow amine. They were effective because the concoction acted as a 5-enolpyruvulshikimate-3-phosphate synthase inhibitor. I could give you a rather complicated explanation, but I don’t have room to do that, so let’s have it suffice to say that this really took the starch out of the plant. Plants are living things. Living things can be tough and resilient, but life also involves a very delicate balance. Isopropylamine salt of glyphosate and polyethoxylated tallow amine are very successful at upsetting that balance…
ONE MIGHT IMAGINE THAT the average person might take note of the success Roundup had and take into consideration that in spraying that mist about, some of it might land on the shoes or pant cuffs of the person doing the spraying, maybe come into contact with that person’s skin, or that quite possibly the individual might just breathe in a little of that mist. One might expect the person doing the spraying or observing the spraying going on might make the connection that, like the plants being dessicated, people are living things, too…
INDEED, IT WOULD SEEM THAT it would take a special brand of stupidity not to put that together. Anyone observing what was going on with the plant when it came into surface contact with Roundup – that the toxins penetrated to well beyond the surface and made their way generally throughout the organism whereupon they worked their splendid destructive magic – might move to the conclusion that maybe it would not be so splendid for those toxins to permeate one’s skin or come into his lungs and make direct or indirect contact with that person’s mucous membranes, or kidneys or liver or gonads or bones or bone marrow. That brand of stupidity however, must be in plentiful supply. Over the years Roundup became a hot selling product, with sales of the stuff eclipsing a billion dollars over the first three decades of it being on the market. Indeed, the use of Roundup became so widespread because of its effectiveness against unwanted weeds and invasive plants that measures had to be taken to limit the damage it was doing to crops and desirable plant life. Monsanto was thus obliged to genetically modify plants so that they were resistant to Roundup. It then made a fortune selling those seeds, including ones for soy, corn, canola, alfalfa, cotton, sorghum, and wheat…
WHEN QUESTIONS EMERGED ABOUT whether Roundup was too dangerous to be applied in the cavalier way in which it was, Monsanto used attorneys to threaten those who spoke out about the inadvisability of its product and hired a series of public relations firms to belittle and deride those who questioned the wisdom of what was going on as ignorant and backward technophobes…
SPEAKING OF STUPIDITY, SHORTLY after Werner Baumann became chief executive officer with Bayer in 2016, he announced his intent to make his mark by the acquisition of Monsanto. I managed to get through to him in Leverkusen, and as politely as I could I told him, essentially, that he needed to have his head examined if he thought he would be doing himself and Bayer and its stockholders any good by the takeover. Werner, mind you, is young enough to be my grandson. Without actually saying so, he politely implied that I am a bit on the doddering side. He gently reminded me that whatever principles I understood were ones applicable to the 20th Century, that this is the 21st Century, and the world has passed me by. He assured me the synergy of a Bayer-Monsanto merger was more than enough to overwhelm any conceivable minor liabilities Monsanto’s legal track record represented. There is no room for temerity in the world of international corporate advancement he chided me. He confidently predicted that within two years there would be double digit accretion with regard to the value of Bayer stock resulting from the buyout. I could see I had not made a dent in him. Less than a year later, in 2017, I removed Bayer – $7-plus million in stock – from my portfolio…
LAST SUMMER, TWO MONTHS AFTER Bayer made its $63 billion acquisition of Monsanto, Dewayne Johnson, a school groundskeeper, prevailed in a lawsuit against Bayer over his contention that his longtime exposure to the herbicide had caused his cancer. He was awarded $289 million. In a piece of encouraging news for Bayer, a judge has since reduced that award to a mere $78 million.
THIS WEEK, A SECOND VERDICT in a Roundup lawsuit was delivered. A jury in San Francisco again found that the evidence was convincing that Roundup was the major contributing factor with regard to Edwin Hardeman developing a malignant cancerous lump in his throat after three decades of using the herbicide to suppress weeds in his garden. The jury will hash out real and punitive damages later this month. There are more than 11,150 lawsuits now pending in federal and state courts against Bayer brought by farmers, home gardeners and landscapers in which the central contention is that its glyphosate-based herbicides, including Roundup and Ranger Pro, caused non-Hodgkin lymphoma and other cancers…
AT THE PHILOSOPHICAL AND moral level, there are outstanding questions as to the culpability of Monsanto and its corporate officials in the formulation, manufacturing and provision of a product like Roundup on the open market. There is evidence, it is alleged, that Monsanto and Bayer have suppressed data indicating the hazard that Roundup and Ranger Pro represented. There is a comeuppance heading there way, and I am not willing to say they do not deserve every bit of it. It is not inconceivable, with all of the litigation that is ongoing and the documents that are likely to surface and the facts to emerge through testimony, that some Monsanto executives or employees may be going to prison. That may be a stretch, but if those executives demonstrated depraved indifference to the health and well-being of Monsanto’s customers while in search of ever greater corporate profit, an energetic prosecutor may place them in the docket…
AND WHAT OF BAYER’S shareholders? Do they deserve to take a huge bath? After years of seeing their stock value skyrocket based on corporate avarice and irresponsibility, even as they were insulated from the decision-making process and reality of what was going on by being mere stockholders, is there not now justice in that stock value plummeting?
AND LASTLY, WHAT OF THE “victims” themselves? What is their culpability? When they sprayed weeds with Roundup and saw what it did, what went through their minds? What of their indolence? Doesn’t their belief that they could in some fashion avoid the unpleasantry of digging the weeds by applying a “chemical” fix to the situation play a role here? Did they truly believe there was no possible downside to their sloth? Should their own stupidity of what they, by large measure with their own hand in squeezing the handles on those spray bottles, were doing to themselves absolve them of any responsibility? And what of the impact their indolence, sloth and stupidity on their neighbors and children, those living nearby who were unwillingly exposed to the isopropylamine salt of glyphosate and polyethoxylated tallow amine that was liberally spread into the environment? Should they be held to account for that?

Grace Bernal’s California Style: Spring It

Spring is here and the weather is tricky. This time of year I find myself wondering if I should wear a jacket. Yes, winter looks are basically withering away and during spring dressing warm or cool might become difficult choice. And, it’s all because the weather is too unpredictable.

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both of Henry Cooper
A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by Derrek L. Cooper, in the Superior Court of California, County of SAN BERNARDINO.
THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that Derrek L. Cooper be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent.
THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority.
A hearing on the petition will be held in Dept. No. S36 at 8:30 a.m. on May 14, 2019 at Superior Court of California, County of San Bernardino, 247 West Third Street, San Bernardino, CA 92415, San Bernardino District.
IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney.
IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under Section 9052 of the California Probate Code.
Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law.
YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk.

IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney.
IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the deceased, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in subdivision (b) of Section 58 of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery of the notice to you under Section 9052 of the California Probate Code.
YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are interested in the estate, you may request special notice of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Section 1250 of the California Probate Code.

Prosecution Rests & Defense Actuates Amid Vicious Witness Ambuscades

By Mark Gutglueck
The prosecution in the Charles Merritt murder trial this week rested its case, and the defense initiated the presentation of its witnesses and evidence.
On Tuesday, the prosecution, led by Supervising Deputy District Attorney Britt Imes, sought to go out with a bang, bringing in an expert on photometric analysis from outside of the country to salvage what otherwise would have been a gaping hole in its presentation.
That expert, Eugenio Liscio, was called upon by Imes to replace Dr. Leonid I. Rudin, whom the prosecution had thought it could rely upon to make a science-based identification critical to the case.
That identification pertained to the partial images of a vehicle caught on the security video at the home of Jennifer Mitchley, who in 2010 lived one door up and across the street from the McStay family home located at 3473 Avocado Vista Lane in Fallbrook.
Charles “Chase” Merritt is charged with the bludgeoning murders of the entire McStay family, including his business partner Joseph McStay, McStay’s wife Summer, and the couple’s two sons, four-year-old Gianni and three-year-old Joseph, Jr. Those deaths occurred, prosecutors allege, on February 4, 2010.
A key piece of evidence which the prosecution alleges places Merritt at the scene of the murders is Mitchley’s security video, positioned on her front porch, which showed the lower portion of a vehicle leaving the driveway of the McStay family’s home and heading out Avocado Vista Lane. That vehicle, prosecutors want the jury to conclude, was Merritt’s 2000 Chevy 350 truck.
Nine years and a day after the murders, on February 5, 2019 in what was the 15th day of the trial, during an evidentiary hearing that was, fortunately for the prosecution, conducted outside the presence of the jury, Dr. Rudin dashed the expectations of the prosecutors trying the case, consisting of Supervising Deputy District Attorney Britt Imes, Supervising Deputy District Attorney Sean Daugherty and Deputy District Attorney Melissa Rodriguez. The district attorney’s office had been banking on Dr. Rudin, one of the world’s leading photogrammographers, being able to offer testimony that would leave no doubt that Merritt was at the McStay residence that fateful night by testifying that it was definitely his truck caught on the video. Possessing a master of science degree in mathematics and a PhD. in photography, Rudin holds 31 patents relating to scientific data collection and is arguably the world’s leading authority on photographic analysis.
After applying his analysis of the video images and a three dimensional image made by Michael Russ, a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department’s scientific analysis division technician, using a laser scanner known as a FARO at the direction of San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Sergeant Ryan Smith, Rudin’s determination was inconclusive. During the evidentiary hearing held on February 5 of this year, Imes asked him what his conclusion was.
“The answer was we could not reject it [i.e., the hypothesis that it was Merritt’s truck seen on the video], but there was some guarded error that we derived,” said Dr. Rudin.
With the image of Merritt’s truck caught by the sheriff’s department’s FARO laser scanner at the same angle as the angle of the Mitchley video camera to the subject vehicle serving as the background of an image projected on the courtroom’s video monitor, a transparency of the Mitchley video was projected across the background during the February 5, 2019 hearing. When the moving vehicle’s image moved into position corresponding to the background image, the video was frozen, with that portion of the truck visible on the video superimposed over the three-dimensional model of the truck.
Rudin said, “I could not eliminate the model as corresponding to the vehicle captured on the video but could not make an identification that it was definitely the truck.”
Rudin further indicated that when his software program and equipment were utilized to take readings of the truck’s wheelbase, he received conflicting results, a discrepancy, he said, of “up to six percent in the worst case scenario and roughly 3 percent in the average scenario. No matter how we used that truck, we were getting plus-minus.”
A precise determination of the truck’s dimensions is critical to the case. Two sets of tracks were found at the site of the McStay family graves, one with a width measuring 73 inches, which roughly, according to prosecutors, matches the tire width of Merritt’s truck. The other set of tracks at the gravesite measured 76 inches across.
On February 5, 2019, Judge Michael A. Smith, over the defense’s objection, ruled that Rudin could testify. He was scheduled to do so on February 19, but that date came and went and he never appeared as a witness, quite likely because of concern that the defense would exploit statements he made during the February 5 evidentiary hearing to sow doubts in the minds of jurors that Merritt was at the McStay residence on February 4, 2010 as the prosecution contends. Last week, on Monday March 4, the prosecution instead elected to have Sergeant Ryan Smith testify with regard to his non-scientific observations and the conclusion he had personally reached that the image on the Mitchley video is a match to the Chevrolet work truck Merritt was driving in 2010.
This week, on the day it rested its case, the prosecution sought to bolster Smith’s testimony by having Eugenio Liscio, a leading authority on three-dimensional forensic reconstruction and an instructor at the University of Toronto and the president of the International Association of Forensic and Security Metrology, to replace Rudin.
Under direct examination by Imes, Liscio said that the low lighting conditions and low resolution of Mitchley’s video camera as well as glare from the bright lights of the vehicle limited his ability to make measurements down to a certain range. Nevertheless, Liscio testified, he found numerous similarities between the vehicle seen on the video and Merritt’s truck.
Liscio said “The headlamps are consistent with the 2000 Chevrolet truck” and that the headlight pattern of the 2000 Chevrolet matched up with the headlight pattern of the vehicle in the video.
“The bulk of the glare measurement on the Chevrolet truck in terms of the horizontal distance is like 47 to 68-69 inches, somewhere in that range,” said Liscio. The dimensions of the headlight pattern of the vehicle in the video was, Liscio said, “approximately 40 inches on the inside and then 70 inches on the outside.” Continuing, he said, “Similarly, there’s the height. So the lower and the upper parts of the glare, the headlamps in the vertical direction, they’re about 27.4 to 38.5. So the low end is 27.4 and the high end is 38.5 and then from the video we’re getting about 27 to 40. The range is obviously bigger where it cast a larger pattern, but from looking at it, aside from the numbers, you can see it falls within the range. So, the headlamps, in just looking at this, are consistent with the 2000 Chevrolet truck.”
Furthermore, Liscio said, the glare pattern off the bumper presented an opportunity for quantification. He said he placed lines on the FARO scan of Merritt’s truck and on a still from the video that followed the glare to find out “how high is that glare pattern off the ground, what range does it fall into. On the Chevrolet truck the actual measurement was found to be 26 inches.” He did the same on a frame lifted out of the video. “When we checked the glare in this particular frame, it goes from about 24-and a-half to about 26-and-a-half,” Liscio said. “So it changed and that could be because the vehicle… actually I looked at the vehicle. It doesn’t seem like older trucks to be perfectly straight or the bumper was hit or something. Different things can happen. Plus there’s a range of error here. I can’t get down to precise measurements. We’re down to the inch range, but I think, as you can see, it falls within that range. Once again… in my opinion the measurements show that it is consistent with what we’re seeing with [Merritt’s truck]. The 2000 Chevrolet Truck is consistent with what we see in the video.”
Turning to the back of the vehicle, Liscio said he compared a model of the shadowing or shadow pattern at the back of the vehicle on the ground created by the brake light of Merritt’s truck to the shadow pattern displayed on the ground beneath the vehicle that was present in the 3400 block of Avocado Vista Lane on the night of of February 4, 2010 which was caught by Mitchley’s video camera when the brake lights came on. “You’ll see that I’ve recreated the shadow in that area quite closely, like really, really close,” said Liscio. “Now, it’s not perfect. It’s not 100 percent perfect. There’s some little tiny things that are different, but the overall shape, scale and measurement is consistent with the outline and what is actually documented on the truck.”
Liscio said the tailpipe of Merritt’s truck matched up with the tailpipe of the vehicle seen on the video.
“In the last few frames when the brake lights go on, you can see there is a clear distinction between this bottom part of the vehicle,” Liscio said. “You have a space and then you have another space and then you start getting shadow or brown. And there’s this object that’s sticking out here. As you cycle through [the video frames] here, in this image it’s bent.” He then overlaid the FARO scan image of the back part of Merritt’s truck on the still taken from the video. “Now, when I take the vehicle and I superimpose it back into the position on the street, you’ll see that it lines up with what I call the dark object,” said Liscio. “It appears to be an exhaust pipe. We go back a couple of frames or through all the frames, we get the same thing.”
The exhaust pipe, which was much more clearly depicted in the FARO scan than in the frame from the video, had a slight bend to it. The exhaust pipe on the video, which was somewhat pixelated, roughly corresponded in shape to its counterpart on the laser scan.
“Again, we don’t have great video here,” said Liscio, “but you can still see the size, the position and the geometry is consistent with what we have on this 2000 Chevy truck.”
With regard to the profile of the vehicle, Liscio said, “The outline of the bottom of the vehicle seems to be consistent with the shadows and dark spots in the video.”
The match the prosecution wanted was threatened by what appears to be a light on the passenger side toward the back of the vehicle shown in the video. There is no such corresponding light on Merritt’s truck. As a witness called by the prosecution, Liscio engaged in an analysis that gravitated toward making the match. Ultimately, he found something upon which to explain away the presence of the light. Liscio used stop action on the video to show that as the vehicle moves forward, at one point the light begins to fade and then in a few frames disappeared altogether before gradually reappearing and growing brighter.
“That bright spot happens to coincide with a latch on the side of the vehicle,” Liscio said, referring to the handle/lock for one of the storage compartments mounted on the bed of Merritt’s truck. “The only thing I can say is it’s close to the latch, so it is not inconceivable that the latch could be causing some type of reflection. When the vehicle first comes into view, you can see it is bright. Then it keeps moving, it goes dim, and then it starts getting brighter again. Just before it exits the screen it gets bright again. So what could be happening here – there are other lights on in the street, a streetlight or house lights, things like that. And when it was farther away, there’s something shining on it that illuminates it and when it starts moving it moves out of the way of this light and it starts transitioning to – it gets brighter and brighter and brighter – so there’s another light that is illuminating it. So, it’s quite conceivable that’s what is happening. There are certain lights on the street that could cause that.”
Liscio enumerated some of those possible light sources, including a spotlight in the side yard of the house next to the Mitchley residence, a street light and a light on the Mitchley porch near the location of the security video camera.
“After conducting all of this analysis, what conclusions could you draw from the evidence that you were provided?” Imes asked.
“The first is the position of the headlights,” said Liscio. “The headlights on the 2000 Chevy truck is consistent with the position of the glare that we’re seeing in the video. That is consistent. The glare that we’re seeing off the bumper at the front of the vehicle: I compared the height of where those are located on the vehicle down to the ground, and that is also consistent with range we found on the 2000 Chevy truck. The other thing we found was the shadows at the back of the vehicle and how they make this specific shape, and I did it through a trace. I also did it through simulated lighting. That is still consistent with what we are seeing in the video. I also looked at the outline of the truck at the bottom and you can see that it falls very close to where the dark spot starts. In the portion where the brake lights come on you can see through that area. That also appears consistent. The exhaust pipe – that is consistent and I think I showed you that this illuminated spot appears to be a reflection. At least the spot appears where the latch is. That’s the closest thing it appears to. Based on that, all these features are consistent with the 2000 Chevy truck. Having said that, a truck that is similar to this one, so if it has the same configuration at the back – it has the brake lights at that spot; it has the same kind of bumper; it’s the same model truck – that could be consistent, as well. That’s possible. It would have the same geometry, the same features and everything else. So, I can’t make an identification with the evidence I have. I can’t go in and say, ‘Well, look, I can tell exactly it’s this 2000 Chevy truck. All I can say is this model truck that you have is consistent with all the features I’ve pointed out in the video.”
As Imes’ direct examination of Liscio was drawing to a close, it appeared as if the prosecution had managed to overcome in some measure the setback of not being able to rely upon the testimony of Dr. Rudin.
The momentum in the favor of the prosecution was short-lived, however, as Merritt’s defense co-counsel, James McGee, methodically dismantled Liscio on cross examination. Through a nearly three-hour back and forth, McGee went beyond simply questioning the witness’s conclusions, but discrediting him with regard to the selective nature of his analysis and his avoidance of evidence and data which controverted his findings. In addition to outright controverting two of the bases for Liscio’s matching of the characteristics of the vehicle seen on the video and Merritt’s utility truck, McGee was able to make a visual display for the jury that seemingly demonstrated the vehicle in question could not have been Merritt’s truck.
“Your last conclusion on your report is you can’t exclude my client’s truck?” McGee asked early in his cross examination.
“That is correct,” Liscio said.
“What are the factors or criteria for exclusion in your analysis?” McGee asked.
“The criteria we can see in the video, which was the headlight, the bumper, the exhaust pipe, the outline of the vehicle, the shadows,” Liscio responded.
Liscio’s use of the singular term “video” rather than the plural term “videos” would prove crucial in McGee’s impeachment of Liscio later in his cross examination.
“That’s for inclusion,” said McGee. “I’m talking about exclusion. What would you need to find to say, ‘We have to exclude a vehicle.’ What are the things you would look for, generally?”
“There has to be something grossly in error,” Liscio said, with error being used as a term to describe a discrepancy between the characteristics of the items or objects being compared. An obviously missing part could be grounds for exclusion, Liscio testified, but only upon the assumption that nothing had changed on the vehicle. “A missing part could be removed,” Liscio said. “It doesn’t mean it wasn’t there before.”
Liscio repeated his statement made under direct examination that he was limited in his analysis by the relatively poor quality of the video he had to work with, such that in making his comparisons to the much more precise and crisp images on the FARO scan the consistencies in the images he noted fell “within a reasonable margin of error.”
“What is your reasonable margin of error based upon a percentage of measurement?” McGee asked.
“There’s no answer for that question,” said Liscio. “You can’t just say ‘It’s two inches. If it’s two inches, I’m going to cancel everything out.’ No, because it depends on the quality of the video you have. What if you can only see one foot of resolution on the video? Then obviously my range has to go bigger than that. Your question – it’s too broad. It’s not fine enough. There are too many things. There are too many variables that you have to account for.”
Liscio insisted that all of the measurements he took were objective.
McGee moved through the various elements of Liscio’s testimony on direct examination in what was a first pass through of his conclusions without making any direct challenge of those findings initially, as if taking a survey of Liscio’s methodology and approach.
McGee’s first sustained intensified sally against Liscio’s credibility and the validity of his conclusions centered on his pronouncement that the headlights of the vehicle seen on Mitchley’s security video match the headlights of Merritt’s 2000 Chevrolet truck.
McGee pointed out that on the video “It appears that the headlights are wider than they are tall.”
“You mean the glare?” Liscio responded with a question.
“Yes,” said McGee.
“Yes,” said Liscio.
“And that would be consistent, since the height of the headlight was 7.2 inches and the width was 8.8 [inches], correct?”
“Yes, but it also depends on the shield, the housing, that it’s in, as well,” said Liscio.
“But that makes sense, since it’s a rectangular shape – that’s a horizontal rectangular – that matches the same size or shape of the headlights,” said McGee.
“Okay,” said Liscio.
“I calculated out the ratio,” said McGee. “That would be a four to five ratio, height to width. Would that be fair?”
“Of the actual measurements?” Liscio asked.
“Yes,” said McGee.
“That sounds fair to me,” said Liscio.
“Now the problem with this picture is if you take the headlights and the running lights together, they’re 11.1 inches tall, correct?” McGee asked.
“On the vehicle, yeah,” said Liscio.
“But only 8.8 [inches] wide,” said McGee. “That’s a five-to-four ratio in height, not width.”
“Um-humm,” Liscio acknowledged.
“Is that a yes?” McGee asked.
“The actual measurements on the vehicle, yes,” said Liscio. “Pertaining to the actual measurements, yes.”
When McGee pointed out that in Liscio’s circumscription of the headlights in his report, “You’re ignoring the running lights, correct?”
“Objection, argumentative,” Supervising Deputy District Attorney Britt Imes interjected.
“Overruled,” said Judge Michael Smith. “He can answer.”
“So, I’m not ignoring anything,” said Liscio. “All I’m doing is saying is these ellipses are what the light appears to be. You draw a circle around the glare, and then what I’m doing here is just looking at the vehicle and seeing how they compare from a different angle. I’m comparing the outline of the glare in the video to, and how they overlay, to the front geometry of the vehicle.”
McGee then displayed a frame taken from a video made by the sheriff’s department of Merritt’s truck that was made at night with the lights on in which the headlights were clearly distinguishable from the running lights, also referred to as parking lights, beneath them.
Liscio said the photo was taken from a point closer to the vehicle than the Mitchley security video camera was from the vehicle on Avocado Vista Lane the night of February 4, 2010, and that the equipment used in photographing Merritt’s truck was of a higher quality.
“If the resolution of the camera is much higher, then I’m going to get a lot more detail,” said Liscio. “If I have a [camera] that is 3,000 by 2,000 pixels, then I have tens of thousands more pixels to look at. If I take a security camera that’s 704 by 480 pixels, I have a lot less. So, you can see the effect here of how the glare is already blending in together. You don’t see a separation between the headlight and parking light. They start to blend together. So now we move back 40-50 feet and take a low resolution camera, and now take also into consideration that the combination of the sensor that’s on the mobile camera is probably a lot better than a cheap security camera, so the ability to detect the differences in lighting, the dynamic range of the sensor in a security camera is probably really poor, and this is much better. So, for all intents and purposes, this is a completely unfair comparison.”
“Did you include in your report how you are excluding the use of this video?” McGee asked, referring to the sheriff’s department high resolution video.
“I didn’t say anything about this video in the report,” Liscio acknowledged.
McGee then displayed on the courtroom’s overhead monitors for Liscio, the jury and courtroom observers a FARO scan image of the front of Merritt’s truck in which the wide and relatively short rectangular parking/running lights which extend further toward the outside edge of the front of the truck than the headlights were clearly distinguishable and visible as separated from the tall rectangular and less wide headlights above them.
“Is it clear from this image that the parking light on the passenger side wraps around the side a little bit?” McGee asked.
“On the passenger side at this distance in this photograph you can see it does extend further,” said Liscio. “On the other side, if you look at the driver’s side, it doesn’t appear to do so as much.”
McGee then displayed on the courtroom’s monitors a still frame taken from the Sheriff’s Department FARO scan of Merritt’s truck above a still from the Mitchley surveillance video in which the headlights were shown to taper slightly at their respective bottoms.
“Let’s start with the driver’s side,” said McGee. “On the driver’s side, on the bottom it [the headlight] rounds in, correct?”
“Yes,” said Liscio. “It does.”
“And it goes down to a shorter distance on the bottom than it does in the middle and on the top,” said McGee.
“Sir, I have to say this,” Liscio began. “You are comparing two images that are completely different, so I’ll answer your questions, but just understand that this is not a fair comparison. You’re comparing apples to oranges here.”
“Your Honor, I would object as non-responsive and move to strike,” said McGee.
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith. “He can explain his answers.”
“My question was simple,” said McGee, “In the bottom picture of the headlight on the driver’s side, does it become more narrow than it is in the middle and the top?” McGee’s question focused on the still frame taken from the Mitchley video.
“Yes,” said Liscio.
“Now, the picture on the top, you can see the headlight start to bend in like it is more narrow, but then there is a parking light that bumps back out, correct?” McGee asked, his question referencing the FARO scan image of Merritt’s truck.
“Yes, and if you’re trying to compare the two images, it’s an unfair comparison,” said Liscio.
“Let’s go to the passenger side,” said McGee. “Again the bottom rounds in, correct?” McGee queried.
“Yes,” said Liscio.
“And the bottom left part of that is further in than the side of the light,” said McGee.
“Objection, that calls for speculation, is not relevant, given the previous answers of the witness about the comparison,” Imes said.
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith. “He can answer.”
“In this frame, yes,” answered Liscio.
“But on that picture above, with that parking light wrapping around, it sticks out significantly, it would be fair to say, yes?” McGee prompted the witness.
“I don’t know what you mean by significant, but again, you are comparing two images,” Liscio said. “I agree with you. It’s sticking out in a completely different image.”
“I agree,” said McGee. “We’re comparing two separate vehicles. I get that.”
“No, you’re comparing images of two separate scenarios,” said Liscio. “Again, you have a different camera. You have a different position close to the vehicle. Those all change what you are seeing and the clarity in which you can see it.”
“You’re saying there’s no way that parking light would ever show up on that security video?” McGee asked.
“Objection, argumentative,” Imes protested.
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith.
“It may or it may not,” said Liscio. “What I am saying is what you are showing me right here doesn’t. And the way to do that would be to do a test. Drive the vehicle by, and I don’t know if the same camera’s still in existence, but drive the vehicle by at night and see what you get. That would be a very fair test.”
“So, when you saw this video and said ‘That’s not a fair comparison because it’s not the same camera,’ did you say, ‘Sheriff’s Department, DA: Do a proper comparison. Go down and drive that truck at night in front of that camera’?” McGee asked.
“Objection!” Imes thundered. “Argumentative.”
“Sustained,” said Judge Smith.
“Did you ask for a fair comparison?” McGee persisted. “You say this is not representative.”
“Objection,” Imes said. “Assumes facts not in evidence.”
Sustained,” said Judge Smith.
“Did you ask for this truck to be driven in front of the camera at night?” McGee tried once more.
“Objection,” Imes said, unwilling to relent. “Assumes facts not in evidence, that the camera exists or can be recorded in the same fashion.”
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith. “He can answer if he made such a request.”
“I did not ask them to go drive the truck, no,” said Liscio.
“You’re not willing to say the running lights are missing on the security camera video” McGee said.
“What I’m saying is it’s quite likely that it’s not detectible,” said Liscio. “It may be on and we can’t see it or it may be off and that’s why we don’t see it or it could be a different vehicle. So there’s different scenarios there.”
“There was testimony from Sergeant Ryan Smith that said, ‘The running lights cannot be turned off…’” McGee began, but was interrupted by Imes’ objection.
“Objection, argumentative,” Imes interrupted.
McGee’s reference was to Sergeant Smith’s testimony that when the headlights in Merritt’s truck were turned on, the parking/running lights automatically turned on as well, such that the headlights could not be illuminated without the running/parking lights being actuated.
Judge Smith overruled Imes’ objection and McGee attempted to continue with his question.
“So, it’s either A, not detectible, or B, not the same vehicle…” McGee started.
“Objection,” Imes broke in. “That assumes facts not in evidence, such as a bulb being burned out.”
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith.
Liscio, unfamiliar with Sergeant Smith’s testimony, was thus trapped by McGee into a tacit acknowledgment that the tall rectangular headlights which narrowed toward the bottom on the video either did not match the wide rectangular headlights on Merritt’s truck or that the video was of such a decidedly poor quality that any conclusions based upon it were unreliable.
McGee took up the issue of the light visible on the passenger side toward the back of the vehicle seen on the Mitchley video.
Referencing Liscio’s report, McGee said, “You said, ‘There’s a small reflection or illuminated spot which appears on the side body of the vehicle in the video. It is difficult to say where the source of the illumination originated from but this spot lines up most closely to one of the handles on the rearmost passenger side compartment.’ Correct?”
“Yes,” said Liscio.
“And you’re saying ‘It’s not a light.’ Right? It’s a reflection?” McGee asked.
“I’m calling it an illuminated spot,” said Liscio. “It doesn’t appear as a constant light.”
“You’re not saying it’s a light but a reflection illumination,” said McGee.
“That’s what I’m saying because there doesn’t appear to be any lights on the end of the vehicle in that position,” Liscio said.
“And you’re aware that the latch is made out of non-reflective metal,” McGee said.
“That assumes facts not in evidence that it is, in fact, non-reflective metal,” Imes said.
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith.
“I don’t understand what you mean by non-reflective metal,” said. Liscio. “What does that mean?”
“It’s not chrome or anything that’s going to shine brightly,” said McGee.
“Let’s just be clear here,” said Liscio. “If it’s metal, if it’s painted or not painted, it will reflect light.”
“So if the light is reflected, then the light has a source,” said McGee.
“Yes,” said Liscio.
“If you know the shape of the object reflecting it, you should be able to trace it to the source, right?” McGee asked.
“One would think so,” said Liscio. “If you had an accurate account of the geometry of the object, it might be possible.”
While the court went into a 15-minute recess, Liscio undertook to use the software on his laptop computer to recreate what the light source was. Upon the jury’s return, Liscio said the sole determination about the source of the light he was able to draw was that it was on the same side of the street as the Mitchley video camera.
Using a still from the FARO scan that was displayed on the courtroom’s overhead monitors, McGee pointed out and had Liscio confirm that there was another latch identical to the one Liscio theorized was the reflective surface on the side of the vehicle further toward the middle of the vehicle on the same side. The second latch was for the forward storage compartment on Merritt’s utility truck and it was positioned roughly five feet in front of and at the exact same height as the rearward latch Liscio theorized might be the source of the reflection seen on the video.
“So,” McGee asked, “if the two latches are in the same direction, same height, same closed position, should they not both show an illumination from that light source?”
“Not necessarily,” Liscio said. “I don’t know, because I don’t know what the light source is.”
McGee then played the Mitchley security video, which showed the vehicle progress from left to right across the visual field of the street in front of the Mitchley residence. McGee, for a period, put the video on loop mode, allowing the jury and court observers to see the video snippet over and over again. He stopped the video at certain points to display the illuminated spot, driving home the point that at no time did a spot forward of where Liscio theorized the back compartment latch to be located – one corresponding to the latch on the storage compartment in front of the rear storage compartment – ever illuminate. This cast a pallor of doubt over Liscio’s stated theory that the illuminated spot on the vehicle was not a light but rather a reflective surface. No such light is present on Merritt’s truck.
McGee then moved on to a demonstration that effectively discredited the entirety of Liscio’s assertion that Merritt’s truck could not be excluded as a match to the vehicle captured in the February 4, 2010 drive-by on the Mitchley video.
Previously during his cross examination of Liscio, McGee was able to get the witness to identify the height of the top of the taillights of Merritt’s truck as being 60.1 inches from the ground and the bottom of the taillights being 54.6 inches from the ground. Liscio, in response to McGee’s questions, stated that on the opposite side of the vehicle the top of the headlights were 38.5 inches above the ground. McGee had Liscio acknowledge that the vertical difference between the height of the top of the headlights and the height of the bottom of the taillights was 16.1 inches.
Also earlier in his cross examination of Liscio, McGee had zeroed in on a GoogleEarth shot of the 3400 block of Avocado Vista Lane in Fallbrook where the McStay family and Michley had lived in February 2010. That GoogleEarth depiction, which Liscio had included as part of his report, offered a bird’s-eye view of the McStay and Mitchley residences, on opposite sides of the street and roughly a door to a door-and-a-half up or down from each other.
“On that GoogleEarth, one thing you found important to mark was the front porch camera and where it’s located and where its pointed, correct?” McGee had asked at that point.
“Yes,” said Liscio.
“Why didn’t you list the side camera on the side of the house?” McGee asked.
“It wasn’t important for my analysis,” Liscio said.
“So you ignored it,” McGee said.
“Well, there was nothing for me to look at,” said Liscio.
“We’ll come back to that,” McGee promised.
Indeed, after McGee had punctured Liscio’s credibility with regard to the Canadian scientist’s assertion that what appeared to be a light on the side of the vehicle seen in the video was not a light but a reflection, he returned to the Mitchley side yard video camera and what images it had captured.
McGee played on the courtroom’s monitors the brief passage of video footage recorded not by the video camera on Mitchley’s porch but by the video camera on the side yard of the Mitchley residence, which was closer to the McStay’s residence than the porch video. Shot from a higher position than the porch video and at a slightly more downward angle, the side yard camera’s visual field caught even less of the street than its porch-based counterpart, so that even less of the top portion of the vehicle is captured on that video than the one Liscio chose to concentrate on. Nevertheless, because the side yard camera was laterally angled slightly rightward with regard to its orientation toward the street while the porch camera was laterally angled slightly leftward with regard to its orientation in relation to the street, the side yard camera offered a fuller perspective on the back of the vehicle as it drove past the Mitchley residence, traveling left to right from the cameras’ perspectives.
“Can you start to see the beginning of the vehicle pulling out of the driveway from that angle?” McGee asked.
“I can see some lights moving in the front there, so now I can see it turning,” Liscio said. “It’s a vehicle, um-hmm.”
What appeared to be taillights on the vehicle were visible at a height roughly equivalent to the headlights.
Liscio had already testified that the FARO scan of Merritt’s truck documented that the bottom of its taillights were at a height of 54.6 inches from the ground, 16.1 inches above the level of the top of the headlights, at 38.5 inches above the ground. It was thus apparent from the side yard video that the vehicle passing in front of the Mitchley house, with its taillights at an approximate height of 33 to 39 inches above the ground, did not match Merritt’s truck.
After running the side yard video once, McGee said, “Watch it again,” and he played it once more.
“That’s the headlights, right?” he said as the car could be seen coming away from the McStay family’s driveway and then straightening itself into alignment to head down the street.
“Um-hmm,” said Liscio.
“Is that a yes?” McGee asked.
“Yes,” said Liscio. “That’s the headlights, yeah.”
“And then,” said McGee, “a taillight, right? Nice and bright.”
A look of abject terror momentarily registered on Liscio’s face, but he quickly recovered his outward composure as he labored to maintain his equanimity. “Why is it a taillight,” he asked, nonchalantly.
“It’s nice and bright,” said McGee. “That’s what you said you wanted to see. Bright and constant from the side, correct?”
Liscio sat silent on the witness stand, struggling for a response.
McGee played the video once more.
“Is that not the bright and constant that you said you wanted to see to determine that’s a taillight?” McGee asked after a 20 second pause between his last having asked the question.
At last, Liscio said, “I don’t think you can say that’s a taillight from what you’re pointing out to me in this video.”
“No?” said McGee, with incredulous affect.
“No,” said Liscio.
McGee asked if Liscio was not evincing confirmation bias, which is defined as the tendency to interpret evidence as a confirmation of one’s existing beliefs or a priori conclusions.
“No,” Liscio responded. “Actually, what you’re saying is it is a taillight, and I’m saying that you can’t tell from the video whether it is or it isn’t.”
“So, you’re just going to find whatever evidence that matches the theory that you want to reach, and you’re going to say that’s a latch, it’s not a light, right? McGee began
“Objection, argumentative,” Imes said.
“Objection sustained as argumentative, and it assumes facts not in evidence,” ruled Judge Smith.
With the video on loop mode and playing over and over again on the courtroom’s monitors, McGee asked “Why won’t you say this is a taillight?”
“It’s not what I can or can’t say,” Liscio said. “It’s what the evidence can show. And sometimes the evidence can only take you to a certain point. And right now the evidence can only take me to a point where I can say it’s an illuminated area. It behaves differently in the other video. You have one angle here where you’re not capturing many frames and, again, looking at it from the other angle, it behaves differently.”
Liscio, keying off of McGee’s reference to the latch, blurred the distinction between the taillight and the side panel light. “So, all I can say is it’s illuminated, it lines up with the latch, I don’t know what it is other than that is the closest we can get,” he said.
With the side yard video loop yet playing, McGee asked, “Now looking at this video, seeing it drive by, do you still stand behind your statement earlier that you made on cross [examination] that there was nothing important in this video for your analysis?”
“So, if you were to hand me this video and I had absolutely no context, so you say ‘There’s a light here,’ whatever, I would tell you the same thing I’m telling you now. I don’t know,” Liscio insisted.
“Yeah but so, you have context,” said McGee. “You have a video angle. You have lighting circumstances. You could have joined these two cameras together, right, and show where all this lights up where the vehicle is and show how these two interlace with one another and say, ‘Hey, look, here’s how they kind of match up.’ Right?”
“So, the reason I didn’t use this video is I don’t have anything to do any measurement or alignment from,” Liscio said. “There’s such little to work with here. And so, I just want to say again I don’t know.”
At that point, Liscio unraveled further, retreating once more toward merging the taillight with the illumination on the side panel. “Again, I just want to say that I don’t know. I know you want me to say it’s one or the other. I’m being honest. I don’t know what it is, other than that it is an illuminated spot [that] aligns with the latch when I did the reconstruction.”
“Let’s be clear,” said McGee. “If that’s an actual taillight, that’s not my client’s vehicle, right?” McGee asked.
“Objection,” said Imes. “That calls for speculation.”
“Sustained,” said Judge Smith.
“If that is a taillight,” said McGee, “that does not match the characteristics of the 200[0] Chevy 350 that you analyzed,” said McGee.
“Objection,” Imes said. “That assumes a lot of facts not in evidence and misstates his testimony.
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith.
“Again, what you’re saying is if that’s a different vehicle then it’s not the same vehicle,” Liscio said circuitously. “I think I said that there are other vehicles that could be or fall into this category, so vehicles of a similar nature, same form, geometry, same box at the back. If there is one that had exhaust pipe and brake lights and headlights and bumper, and somebody put a side light on there, that is possible. And it’s possible it’s another vehicle. So, I’m not saying that this is your client’s vehicle. All I’m saying is that the vehicle in question is consistent with my report and that if there’s another vehicle that looks similar, that is possible. I can’t make an identification and say it is.”
During his testimony, Liscio provided a statement, extrapolated from his report, that is likely to prove problematic for the prosecution on another score, one unrelated to the Mitchley video.
According to the prosecution, after murdering the McStay family using a three-pound miniature sledgehammer on February 4, 2010, Merritt transported the corpses up into the desert north of Victorville and southeast of Oro Grande and crudely interred them along with the sledgehammer in two shallow graves in the area accessed by a dirt road off of the I-15 Freeway and Stoddard Wells Road on February 6, 2010. On February 6, 2010, 1.1 inches of rain fell in the area around Victorville, and two sets of vehicle tracks, each leading to the side of the two six-foot-long, two-foot-wide and 18-inch-deep graves were yet grooved into the desert floor when the bodies were discovered in 2013. Investigators took measurements of those tire grooves at the time. The width of one of those sets of tracks, from the outside edge to the outside edge of the tire indentations was 73 inches. The other tire track width was 76 inches. It is the contention of the prosecution that that the 73-inch set of tracks is another indication that Merritt is the murderer. The prosecution maintains the width spanning the outside edge to the outside edge of the tires on Merritt’s truck is 73 inches.
McGee asked Liscio, “You also measured the outside wheel width from one edge of the tire to the other edge of the tire, correct?” McGee asked.
“Yes,” said Liscio.
“And what was the distance there?” McGee asked.
“The outer was 71-and-a-half,” said Liscio.
“Not 73,” said McGee.
“Depending on where you take it, again, this is just a rough measurement,” said Liscio. “So, if the tire, you know, if somebody took it from the edge of the tire, it was flatter or less air, it could expand another inch or whatever at the sides. We roughly got 71-and-a-half, so that’s what I have.”
After Liscio concluded his testimony, for which he was provided $4,000 to cover his time on the witness stand in addition to the $10,000 he was paid for his report, he was dismissed without being subject to recall, and was free to make his way back to Toronto.
At that point, subject to the entering of further prosecution exhibits that have not yet been filed with the court, the prosecution rested.
The defense began putting on its case the following day. It began on Wednesday morning with Merritt’s 24-year-old daughter, Sara Taylor Jarvis, followed by her mother and Merritt’s common law wife, Catherine Jarvis, who has lived separately from Merritt since 2011.
Sara Jarvis’s value to the defense in large measure consisted of her having been in a position, when she was 15 years old, to have witnessed a quarrel between her mother and father over Merritt having failed to answer a phone call from Joseph McStay on the evening of February 4, 2010. That call, placed at 8:28 p.m. was the last call ever made from Joseph McStay’s cell phone. That phone call took on significance in the light of subsequent events and has been a recurring topic and issue during the trial.
Sara Jarvis’s testimony supports the version of events offered by her mother, to the effect that Merritt was at or around their Rancho Cucamonga residence at the Homecoming apartment complex on Church Street the evening of February 4, 2010.
Earlier that afternoon, Merritt had met with Joseph McStay at a Chick-fil-A fast food restaurant in Rancho Cucamonga. The prosecution alleges that McStay had confronted Merritt at that meeting about Merritt having fraudulently accessed McStay’s business account and embezzling $4,995 by writing fraudulent checks to himself from it. Later that afternoon and into the evening, according to the prosecution, Merritt shut off his cell phone so his movements could not be tracked and he drove down to the McStay family residence where he killed his business associate and his family.
On the witness stand, Sara Jarvis testified that she recalled her father and McStay partnering when she was 11 or 12 years old to construct large-size custom water features, including fountains and artificial waterfalls. Her father designed and built the metal, glass and rock structures based upon specifications provided by McStay in accordance with the orders for the product from customers. She said that shortly after her father made McStay’s acquaintance McStay had become “my dad’s business partner and his best friend.”
Under direct questioning by Merritt’s co-counsel, Rajan Maline, Taylor Jarvis recalled her parents getting into a spat the night of February 4, 2010 over her father not answering an incoming call from McStay. She told Maline the call came while the family was at the Rancho Cucamonga apartment complex where they lived at the time.
Her father’s failure to answer the call became a larger issue shortly thereafter when her father was unable to contact McStay, she said. The minor disagreement the night of February 4 “turned into less of an argument and more of” consternation on her mother’s part when, she said, “the next day my dad couldn’t get a hold of Joseph. In the subsequent days the conversation turned more to my mom saying, ‘Now you can’t get a hold of Joseph.’ As time went on, it became, ‘What if that was an emergency call or a call for help?’”
The prosecution in its cross examination of Sara Jarvis, carried out by Deputy District Attorney Melissa Rodriguez, sought to portray the witness as someone whose affection and loyalty to her father compromised the truth and accuracy of her testimony.
When Sara Taylor was pressed about the February 4, 2010 phone call, she acknowledged that she had not herself seen the call when it came in, but that it lodged in her memory because of the argument it provoked and the aftermath, which involved her father trying to call McStay later, to no avail.
Rodriguez also sought to elicit from Merritt’s daughter an admission that her father, from his jail cell during the latter stages of his more than four years of incarceration and particularly since his trial has begun, attempted to influence her testimony.
“You had several conversations with your dad after trial started, right?” asked Rodriguez.
“Correct,” said Sara Jarvis.
“And he talked about evidence that was presented during trial, right?” Rodriguez continued.
“Um-humm,” said Taylor Jarvis.
“And he talked to you about phone towers, right?” Rodriguez said.
“Yes,” said Jarvis.
“He specifically told you about the need to be at home on the night of the fourth [February 4, 2010] because his phone was pinging off a tower in the Riverside area,” said Rodriguez. “Do you recall that part of the conversation?”
“I don’t know he said he needed to be home, but I remember talking in general about the phone towers,” said Sara Jarvis.
“And your dad talked to you about the financial aspect of the case as well, right?” asked Rodriguez.
“Sure,” Jarvis responded.
“And he talked about whether you were going to be called as a witness to testify, right?” the deputy prosecutor asked.
“Yes,” said Taylor Jarvis. “I didn’t know if I was.”
“And your dad talked to you about what he wanted you to testify to, right?” Rodriguez probed.
“No, not that I recall,” Sara Taylor Jarvis said.
“You went to visit your dad, right?” Deputy District Attorney Rodriguez asked
“Yes,” said Jarvis.
“And at some point when you talked, you talked through the glass,” said the deputy prosecutor, referring to the plexiglass partitions in the visiting booths at the West Valley Detention Center.
“Yes,” said Sara Taylor.
“And you were made aware at some point your dad’s visits through the glass were being recorded, right?” Rodriguez asked.
“Yes,” said Taylor Jarvis.
“And that was after you had gone to visit your dad and in those visits you talked about the case through the glass, right?” the deputy prosecutor asked.
“Yes,” said Jarvis.
“After you found out they were being recorded, you stopped talking about the trial, basically, through the glass, right?” Rodriguez asked.
“I’d say that’s accurate,” said Sara Jarvis.
“So you talked about what you were going to have to testify about, right?” Rodriguez asked.
“Yes,” said Sara Taylor.
“So, you talked to your dad about different things you might be asked about, right?” asked Rodriguez.
“Well, just it was…” Taylor Jarvis began.
“Just a yes or no question,” Rodriguez barked. “Did you talk to your dad about things you were going to testify about?”
“I only saw one thing you showed me,” said Jarvis, referencing a transcript of a recording of her jailhouse exchange with her father she had been provided with by Rodriguez.
“And your dad talked to you, in addition, about the pseudonym that you heard about, right?” Rodriguez asked. “Him searching for a pseudonym?”
“Yes,” said Taylor. “I think so.”
“So, even if you weren’t here in court, you’ve been privy to everything that’s gone on during trial, right?” the deputy prosecutor asked.
“I would hope so,” said Sara Jarvis. “I mean, it’s my family that’s going through this.”
“But you knew that you could potentially be called as a witness in this case, right?” Deputy District Attorney Rodriguez asked.
“Yes,” said Sara.
“And so you were still talking to your dad about different testimony that had occurred in court, right?” Rodriguez asked.
“Yes,” said Jarvis.
“And in fact you testified about events that occurred when you were approximately eleven to twelve years old until the time you were fifteen, back when the defendant worked for Joseph McStay, right? Rodriguez asked.
“Correct,” said Sara Jarvis.
“And would it be fair to say an eleven-year-old isn’t super-involved in the business aspect of things?” Rodriguez asked.
“Yes. That’s fair,” responded Sara Taylor.
“And so you have some pretty detailed information about that now, though, right?” the deputy prosecutor asked.
“More detailed than I had, but I still don’t know too much,” Taylor Jarvis responded.
While questioning Sara Jarvis, Rodriguez brought up the subject of her father’s work with Keene Engineering, with whom he was employed in the years after the McStay family’s disappearance. Rodriguez took the opportunity to display for her, the jury and courtroom observers photos of her father in what appeared to be a desert setting as he was involved in excavating earth.
Rodriguez asked Sara Jarvis about her father’s work with Keene Engineering, prompting a response that she was not too familiar with what he was doing at that time because she had already moved out of her parent’s house and that she had only seen drawings of what her dad was working on.
“You were aware though that he was involved with making machines that would be able to mine for gold, right?” Rodriguez asked.
“Yes,” said Sara Jarvis.
Two of the photos pointedly showed Merritt, clad in a T-shirt emblazoned with the Keene Engineering Logo across the back, in a hollow that was dredged out from the desert floor. For at least some courtroom observers, and very possibly for some members of the jury, those photos conjured the conception of the fashion in which the McStay family had been buried in the area north of Victorville and southeast of Oro Grande. One of the photos showed Merritt looking up toward the camera as he was standing in what appeared to be a trench at least one-and-a-half times as deep as the relatively shallow 18-inch deep graves the McStay family was buried in.
Sara Taylor evinced a steely resolve in the face of Rodriguez’s questioning, maintaining her equanimity and not allowing herself to be provoked by the deputy prosecutor’s harsh characterizations and insinuating suggestions, and at no point responded in kind.
It was only during Maline’s more gentle questioning on redirect examination that Taylor Jarvis made a showing of emotion. When Maline asked her why her family had discussed the case in jail meetings, Jarvis uttered “Our whole family is part of this,” and at that point grew lachrymose. After she recovered, Maline asked her, “In the entire four-and-a-half-year period that you have been visiting your dad, has he ever once told you to lie for him?” Maline asked.
“No.” Jarvis said, indicating the facts being what they are, no misrepresentations were necessary.
“I don’t have any reason to lie for him,” she said.
Following her daughter to the witness stand was Catherine Jarvis.
Merritt’s common law wife and the mother of his three children, Catherine Jarvis was listed as a prosecution witness, but was never called during the case Imes, Rodriguez and their colleague, Supervising deputy District Attorney Sean Daugherty put on during the accusatory phase of the trial that began with opening statements on January 7, consisting of 28 days in trial, 27 of which were before the eight-woman/four man jury and their six alternates, with one entire day outside the jury’s presence for an evidentiary hearing. Anticipating that the defense would call her as a witness, the prosecutors made a decision to use the opportunity that would provide them to wring from her under cross examination everything that would have otherwise been achieved by questioning her during direct examination, while at the same time deriving the extra benefit of being able to untrack the defense and interrupt its intended focus and progression by redirecting the jury’s attention to the gravamen of the prosecution’s contentions.
Thus, Rodriguez was in essence lying in wait for Jarvis. Before the deputy prosecutor could effectuate that ambush, however, she had to abide while Maline carried out his direct examination of the witness.
In testimony that echoed that of her daughter’s, Catherine Jarvis testified that Merritt, whom she characterized as “very creative,” had progressed to manufacturing water features after fabricating “metal art” and terracotta pots. She said she had assisted him when he started manufacturing artificial waterfalls, which were built in an enclosed porch area next to the driveway of the house in San Dimas where they then lived. She said that Merritt had started modestly, specializing in a relatively uncommon if not unique type of hanging waterfall that found a small niche and was marginally successful, selling the product at home and garden shows. He eventually expanded from a home-based business to one which operated out of a small shop in San Dimas, she said, and moved to a larger shop in Pomona. She said it was at that time that her husband made the acquaintance of Joseph McStay, who was then selling prefabricated waterfalls on his website. Shortly thereafter, she indicated, her common law husband and McStay “were doing business together.” Joseph’s operation thereupon progressed from the simple plastic, metal and glass waterfalls he was marketing before he met Merritt to ones built to order and specification by Merritt, Catherine Jarvis testified. “The custom orders started taking up more of Joseph’s business,” she said. By 2007 and 2008, she said, their shared enterprise was expanding. “It was steadily moving up,” she said. “They were starting to do a lot more volume, or not just volume, but more expensive waterfalls.”
“And they became very close,” said Maline. “Is that right?”
“Yes,” said Jarvis.
“You say they became friends?” Maline asked.
“Yes,” said Jarvis.
By that time, Jarvis said, she was no longer involved in the water feature operation.
“We kept butting heads about how best to take care of customers and get orders out,” she said. “I thought I was right and he thought he was right. It was causing too much friction.”
“Did you guys have disagreements upon how the business should be run?” Maline asked.
“Yes,” said Catherine Jarvis. “Definitely.”
“Who was the more fiscally responsible person?” Maline asked.
“Me,” said Catherine Jarvis.
“So, his skill did not lie with the management of money, I take it,” said Maline.
“His focus was on the waterfalls,” said Catherine Jarvis.
“He was very artistic,” said Jarvis. “He was very creative. He could build anything. He was a hard worker and that’s what he spent most of his time doing.”
Subsequently, Jarvis said, Merritt moved his fabrication operation from Pomona to Claremont. In the same timeframe, Jarvis said, she, Merritt and their family moved to Rancho Cucamonga into a home on Filkins Avenue, which they were renting to buy. When that fell through, she said, they moved into the Homecoming apartment complex in Rancho Cucamonga in 2009. While they were living at the Homecoming apartments, they did not have television and internet service, Catherine Jarvis testified, and so the family often made use of the complex’s clubhouse which had a business center with computers, printers, and fax machines, in addition to recreational amenities including pool tables, a movie theater and a gym, as well as a pool and barbecues nearby. She said that Merritt made use of the business center frequently and the children were often in the clubhouse as well.
“He did go there to make copies and use the fax machine and computers a lot,” she said.
The computer in the clubhouse was on a “hard wire” system, she said, so access to the internet was reliable there. But cell phone reception there was another matter, she said.
“If you had to drag your kids out of there or get Chase’s attention if he was there to get him home, how would you communicate?” Maline asked her. “Would you walk over to the clubhouse or would you call?”
“Most oftentimes it would be easier just to call if I could,” she said. “A lot of times I couldn’t get a hold of them that way, so I would end up walking over there, and seeing what they were doing or when they were coming home.”
“And why was it difficult to sometimes call?” Maline asked.
“I don’t know,” Catherine Jarvis answered. “It just was bad reception.”
She testified that after the family’s move to Rancho Cucamonga and out of the San Dimas operation, she and the rest of the family saw less of Joseph McStay, but that she, Merritt and the children still had occasional contact with McStay, mostly by going out to dinner with him.
“Do you recall at some point Joseph and his family went missing?” Maline asked.
“Yes,” Catherine Jarvis said.
“Do you recall approximately when that was?” Maline asked.
“February of 2010,” she responded.
“Just prior to that, in January, the end of January, did you have an occasion to have one of these dinners with Joseph?” Maline asked.
“Yeah, I believe so,” Catherine Jarvis responded. “They were talking about some new projects that were coming up, and they were some big projects. So, Joseph was really excited about them, and he was almost giddy. He was talking about the Saudi Arabia project.”
The Saudi Arabia project, which at other times was referred to as the “Dubai project,” was the largest and most lucrative undertaking yet for McStay’s company, known as Earth Inspired Products.
“Do you recall the last day that Joseph had contact with Chase?” Maline asked.
“Yes,” said Catherine Jarvis.
“When was that?” asked Maline.
“The Fourth of February [2010],” Catherine Jarvis said.
“And on the Fourth of February, do you recall, did Chase go to work that day?” Maline asked.
“Yes,” said Jarvis.
“Do you know what Joseph did that day or whether he saw Joseph that day?” Maline asked.
“He went to work in the morning and he said he was on his way to meet Joseph for lunch and pick up checks,” Catherine Jarvis said.
Jarvis said he returned home with checks later that day. Jarvis testified that McStay occasionally gave Merritt blank checks so he could pay for materials and vendors relating to the water feature construction business. Jarvis said Merritt also used cash in paying for materials and services relating to those manufacturing efforts. Jarvis said that because of a bankruptcy, she and Merritt often dealt in cash.
Jarvis said that Merritt was gone from their residence during the daytime on February 4, 2010, but that he returned while it was yet daylight. To Maline’s question, she said Merritt was home “in the evening. I think he was home that day earlier than usual, maybe 5 [o’clock]. It was still light outside.”
Maline asked if Merritt was in the clubhouse that day. “Specifically, I don’t remember for sure if he went to the clubhouse, but he was home in the area that day,” she said.
“Was there a phone call that Chase received in the evening hours?” Maline asked.
“Yes,” Catherine Jarvis said.”
“Do you recall when that was?” Maline asked.
“It was after dark,” Jarvis responded. “Around 8 o’clock.”
“And do you know who the call was from?” Maline asked.
“Yes,” said Jarvis.
“Who?” asked Maline.
“Joseph,” Catherine Jarvis said.
“And how do you know?” Maline asked.
“It said on Chase’s display who the call was from,” she said.
“Now, did you see that?” Maline asked.
“Yes, I did,” Catherine Jarvis said.
“Did Chase answer the phone?” Maline asked.
“No, he did not,” Jarvis said.
“Did you respond in any way after you saw Joesph’s name pop up and you see Joseph not answer it?” Maline asked. “Did you say or do anything?”
“Yes, we proceeded to get into a little bit of an argument about him not answering his phone,” she said.
She said, “I told him it was Joseph calling.” She said Merritt told her “’I already saw him and I’ll call him tomorrow.’ And then I was like, ‘Well, he’s calling, and it’s evening. Shouldn’t you answer the phone? He probably called for a reason.’ And he just didn’t answer.”
She said Merritt never heard from Joseph after that.
Jarvis recollected that two detectives from the San Diego Sheriff’s Department came to their home to speak with Merritt about the McStay family’s disappearance. She remembered that as happening “three or four weeks” after Joseph went missing, though previous testimony in the trial indicated it occurred on February 17, 2010.
Catherine Jarvis said Merritt’s failure to take Joseph’s call came to be an item of discussion and bone of contention between them in the days and weeks that followed. After Merritt was not able to reach McStay, she said, “He said he was going to drive down to Joseph’s house and check on him.” After Merritt did so, she said, “Eventually he got a hold of the family and he told me he was going down there and he was going to meet his brother there and they were going to try to get in the house to see if there was any evidence of them being gone somewhere and having taken a vacation somewhere without telling anyone.”
Jarvis said that Merritt and McStay, prior to the disappearance, “talked everyday, ten, fifteen times a day, constantly.”
“Do you know if Chase notified the police?” Maline asked.
“He did not,” Jarvis said.
“Did you talk about that with Chase?” Maline asked.
“Yes,” Catherine Jarvis answered.
“And when did you have that discussion with Chase?” Maline said.
“It was in the days he couldn’t get a hold of him,” she indicated. “I said, ‘Why don’t you contact the police?’ and he was like, ‘Let’s wait until after the weekend’ and ‘Maybe they just went on vacation and didn’t tell anyone. They just took off someplace’ and ‘I’ll see if I can get a hold of the family and see if they know where he is’ and, you know, ‘Let’s not just jump the gun.’”
Jarvis said that by June 2011 she and Merritt were no longer living together.
In 2013 she said she was still in contact with Merritt though not living with him when the remains of the McStay family were found. She said that she was twice interviewed by detectives with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.
She told the detectives about the unanswered phone call from McStay that was placed to her husband the night of February 4, 2010, she said.
Maline asked her about an interview she had with San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department investigators on October 10, 2014. “How was that experience?” Maline asked. “Were they questioning you about whether he really received that phone call or not?”
An objection was made to the question and sustained. Maline had Jarvis confirm that she had stood by her statement that Merritt had gotten but did not answer a call from Joseph McStay on the evening of February 4, 2010.
Catherine Jarvis testified that after Joseph McStay’s disappearance, an effort involving Merritt and McStay’s brother and mother was made to keep Earth Inspired Products up and running. She said that she also understood that effort might have included Dan Kavanaugh, who was involved in the sale of the water features via the internet. Merritt had completed the Saudi Arabia waterfall project, she testified, and he traveled to Saudi Arabia to install it.
In the summer of 2014, homicide detectives with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department had obtained warrants to place taps on Merritt’s and Jarvis’s phones. In an effort to induce one or both of them into making an incriminating statement or incriminating statements, the detectives interrogated Catherine Jarvis on October 10, 2014. The following day, October 11, 2014, there was phone contact between Merritt and Jarvis. The recording of that conversation was played in court on Thursday morning while Jarvis was on the witness stand.
On the audio of the call, Jarvis can be heard telling Merritt that she had been subjected to an interrogation by the detectives “for hours” in which they were trying to convince her that she had things “wrong. Pretty much telling me that you did the murders and that I, you know, helped you in some way, shape or form.”
She said the detectives were showing her “evidence and things, pictures…”
“Such as?” Merritt asks.
“Pictures of your utility truck and pictures of the family, pictures of us, pictures of our kids,” she says.
“What’s that got to do with anything?” Merritt says.
“They’re trying to intimidate,” she says. “They say, ‘If you go to jail, what’s going to happen to your kids?’ Stuff like that. They show me a picture of my kids. ‘Do you want them to be without a mother?’”
“Those fuckers,” Merritt responds. “What kind of questions were they asking?”
“Like, ‘What happened the night before Joseph disappeared?’ and then they brought out phone records and said, “Well, that’s not what happened. Chase wasn’t home.’ And I go, ‘What? That’s not possible. That’s not what I remember.’ And, so like ‘Well, here’s the phone records’ and ‘You were trying to get a hold of him at the time you saw the phone ringing.’”
“I was trying to get a hold of him?” Merritt says.
“No, I was trying to get a hold of you,” Jarvis says.
“They were showing me the phone records from that night,” she said. “’Look, there’s call after call after call, and he’s not answering.’ I go, ‘That can’t be. That can’t be, because you were home. I remember!’ It was crazy.”
A bit further on in the phone call, Jarvis is heard saying the investigators were telling her “You [i.e., Merritt] had something to do with it. Now you’re going to be accused of the murders. I was like, ‘This is not possible. Not possible. I know Chase. It’s not possible.’ You’ve got no reason to do this.”
Jarvis told Merritt she told the detectives, “’One day somebody is going to come and probably shoot Chase, kill him, but for him to do this to somebody else, just doesn’t make sense.’ I told them there’s no way you could have done it and they said that there was, and your car, your truck was seen at Joseph’s house the night he disappeared. We’re going back and forth and I was just like ‘Am I going crazy? Am I remembering things wrong? What the hell is happening?’ They were trying to convince me or get me to say it didn’t happen the way I said. I know. I know it happened. And I said, ‘Maybe it happened on another day, but I could have sworn it was on a Friday. I could have sworn this is what happened.’”
Jarvis said, “I don’t know if they’re just trying to find evidence to pin this on you. I don’t know if they’re telling me a made-up story for my benefit.”
Merritt said, “They’re spending an awful lot of energy on me.”
“Well, they’re just trying to find out who did it,” Jarvis responded. “I think they want to cover a lot of bases and you don’t know if they’re spending an awful lot of energy on you. It’s just that you’ve made a lot of people angry at you. That’s part of the problem. If somebody’s going to point a finger, they’ll point at you because you’ve pissed everybody off.”
“Where do you get I’ve pissed everybody off?” Merritt retorted.
“Who haven’t you pissed off?” Jarvis came back.
“I haven’t pissed everybody off,” Merritt is heard saying.
“Think about it,” Catherine Jarvis said.
“Like who?” Merritt asked.
“Chase, like everybody,” she said. “Everybody that I can think you come into contact with. The customers. Business associates. You piss everybody off. Because you end up walking away. You don’t follow thorough. You don’t finish. You piss a lot of people off. That’s what I told the detective. I said, ”That’s what I’m saying.’ I couldn’t take that chance with my family because you’re too reckless. You don’t think about the consequences of things. I thought you were going to piss off the wrong person and they were going to come after you and/or us. I said, ‘If anything, it will be Chase who will end up dead. He’s going to piss off the wrong person one day and he’s going to end up dead. But for him to take somebody else out, that just don’t make sense. He just doesn’t care much about anything or anyone.’”
“Well, thanks,” said Merritt..
“Well, it’s friggin’ the truth,” Jarvis said.
“No, it’s not,” Merritt responded.
“You didn’t care enough to keep your family together,” Jarvis remonstrated. “You don’t stop doing the bad things you do. You don’t think about the repercussions. You don’t listen to people when they’re trying to tell you that you’re not doing the right thing.”
Nevertheless, after that diatribe, Catherine is heard saying, “I still believe in you. I still care about you. You drove me crazy.”
When the prosecution was still putting its case on and was yet contemplating calling Catherine Jarvis as a prosecution witness, the defense team made a motion to prevent the introduction of evidence consisting of monitored conversations between Merritt and both Catherine Jarvis and Sara Jarvis. In an effort to circumvent the recording of conversations over the intercom phones on either side of the visiting booths at West Valley Detention Center, Merritt had taken to shouting loudly though the plexiglass partition. Sergeant Ryan Smith placed a digital recording device in the booth that captured those exchanges. Judge Michael Smith ruled that the prosecution could use those recordings and present them to the jury.
Thus, with Catherine Jarvis on the stand, Rodriguez had one of those recorded exchanges played for the jury.
In it, Merritt can be heard telling Jarvis that she is likely to be called upon to testify about the February 4, 2010 phone call from Joseph McStay that went unanswered. He also discusses with her the circumstance relating to a waterfall he and McStay had built for Provecho, a restaurant in Los Angeles. Provecho had stiffed McStay for the $38,000 cost of that impressive water feature, and McStay was on the verge of suing the restaurant to recoup the money. In the meantime, both McStay and Merritt had agreed to split the loss – $19,000 each – on the project.
The prosecution was hoping that the jury might construe Merritt’s statements to Catherine Jarvis with regard to her upcoming testimony as an effort to influence that testimony, and an indication of his guilt. Among courtroom observers, that evidence left varying impressions. Indeed, among those courtroom regulars who are favorably disposed to the prosecution and who have reached the conclusion that Merritt is guilty, Merritt’s recorded shouts through the glass were uniformly interpreted as further confirmation of his culpability in the brutal murders and as an effort to fabricate evidence and tamper with a witness. Among others, however, his efforts to bypass the jailhouse’s eavesdropping system after being cooped up for more than four years was seen in a far less sinister light. Of import here, it was noted, the statements he made with regard to the Provecho matter were absolutely true and can be documented by communications between McStay and others. Moreover, law enforcement officials for more than four years have made a concerted effort to change Catherin Jarvis’s statements with regard to the unanswered February 4, 2010 phone call from McStay to Merritt, going so far as to threaten her with arrest and to charge her as an accomplice in the murders if she did not do so. In this way, Merritt’s efforts to keep her on track without alerting the authorities lends itself to an entirely different construction, coming across to some as a logical and defensible effort to prevent himself from being railroaded.
In cross examining Jarvis, Rodriguez obtained an acknowledgment from the witness that Merritt had taken an almost obsessive interest in gambling in the 2007-2008 timeframe, and had begun completing at poker tournaments. When Jarvis indicated that Merritt’s fascination with gambling had lasted “a couple of years,” Rodriguez introduced evidence that had been presented through other witnesses earlier in the trail to show that Merritt’s overindulgence in gaming had persisted for far longer and at an intensity greater than Jarvis had represented, in that he had frequented the Pechanga, Commerce and San Manuel casinos on at least 73 occasions between February 2009 and February 2010. An element of the prosecution’s case is that Merritt’s gambling addiction had contributed to the financial desperation that led to the McStay family murders.
In an effort to imply to the jury that Catherine Jarvis was shading the truth in her testimony, Rodriguez asked her about her current relationship with Merritt and her feelings toward him. She acknowledged she still loved him.
Rodriguez dwelt at length with both the mother and daughter with regard to their contact with Merritt’s defense team. Both acknowledged having reviewed with Merritt’s lawyers transcripts, videos or audio recordings of their questioning by investigators.
