    “Elizabeth” during your interview acted like she was traumatised, was shaking and cried so much and kept wiping away her IMAGINARY tears. No tears.

    • NJJuls

      That is exactly what said! No tears! She just seemed to be acting! Her whole demeanor seemed staged & fake to me.Way over the top I just did not believe her. I think she regretted acting like she did, & wanted to save face, so she tried turning the tables.

    • Jack Miller

      Tierra and Leah and hacks. They arr obvious man hatters and have no concept of the realist that women lie. God help all the innocent men that have railroaded over false accusations of sexual Assult Stop the witch hunt. Suggesting to my friends at Criminal podcast to look into this case and others that they have touched.

  • Alvin Mack56

    Leah is very attractive lady! Wow!

  • BritsBaldHead

    I just watched this episode and I thought the SAME thing about that girl. Her eyes were dry as a bone as she was wiping her eyes – what a fake, over the top performance.

  • Is Dave Stanton appearing in any of the episodes?

  • Bryon Watkins

    Let’s see how you all do when it has been discovered that your corrupt Distrust District Attorney lied on a charging instrument saying one thing when a video, in color, says the total opposite. Why that would be perjury. And perjury, Per United States Supreme Court case decisions, have led to an array of Federal violations. Good thing i, and the Whistleblowers that I’ve worked with overt the past three years, have uncovered what we have. Good thing also that Chief Justice John Roberts said that there are no statute of limitations on fraud. Perjury is linked to fraud by the way. Plenty of case laws and law maxims supports that. Oh, one last thing. Forger about using any so called immunity or the Bona fide error. We’ve planned for that also. Like Associate Justice Antonio Scalia said, “Attorneys are historians. If they do not take this task seriously, they cease to be historians.” Harvard Law professor Mary Ann Glendon ssid, “The American people would be amazed of the very little training attorneys receive. And Former Yale Professor Frederick Rodell, he put your profession on blast beyond. Lastly, we’ve discovered loopholes to NOT be arrested for attaching liens. Just so you know. My name is Bryon Watkins. Jury Nullification is also coming. The United States Supreme Court also enforces that. Kisses.

  • Bryon Watkins

    Oh, by the way. Do you have any idea how many cases we’ve uncovered of not only false arrest, but of wrongfully convicted which was led by prosecutorial misconduct? That’s why sooooo many have been, and are still being exonerated. Computer Hackers, just so you know. The courts have ruled that any hacked material that goes to a thiRd party, and that third party post it, no crimes, as long as it benefits the public, have been committed. Just saying. God how I love being an Historian on lies, decrit, deception, misrepresentation.

        So did he get sentenced to 60yrs like they discussed on LasVegas Law? or did he end up not taking the guilty plea and going to trial?
        I always hate when the show ends and we don’t know what the official outcome was 🙁
        It’s like that when I watch an episode of “The First 48”.
        Most times I end up googling the names to see what actually happened after it went to court.
        But I gotta say, I absolutely love watching programs like this on “Investigation Discovery” and “A&E”. The real life ‘Law & Order’ cases.
        Regarding this particular case though, I was hoping that he’d end up in prison for the rest of his life!!!! He’s truly a danger to any woman that come across his path!! (and don’t even get me started on his mother!! she enabled him time after time instead of making sure he paid the consequences for his actions!! from what we saw on this episode it looks like she needed a swift kick in the rear for practically stalking his victims!!)
        Thanks for letting me speak my mind here 🙂 I never realized there was boards like this for fellow watchers to get updates and talk about their opinions on the cases/shows/episodes.

  • Russell Parker

    To Chief Deputy District Attorney Marc DiGiacomo: You and Pamela Weckerly were great on the George Tiaffay case. Could you please tell me the results of his pathetic appeal that was recently filed, actually admitting to having his wife killed. Now he says he had been abusing drugs? How can we find out the results of his appeal? Thank you.
