EIP Was A Front, But For What?

A thread has been requested to discuss Joey's fountain business, EIP. Was it a front? Yes, it was, But, a front for what? Here is a hint: Why was Joey frantically trying to raise $80,000 by February 4, 2010? He had over $100,000 in the bank. Why did he need another $80,000, and why by that date?


As The Trial Nears, Beware of Buffoons Like KFI's John and Ken

I feel obligated, probably because I am part of the media, to warn all those who are following this case (and the upcoming trial) to beware of the following:

Discussion of Mike McStay's Cell Phone Records

I have been asked to post a thread where everyone can discuss Mike McStay's cell phone records. It appears that the records do not match the numerous statements Mike has made to the media, as well as to LE. 

There is warrant for Mike McStay's cell records. At the preliminary the detective testified that the last time Mike spoke to Joe was on Feb. 4th.

Chase Merritt's Arrests, Convictions and Stints in Jail

Here is the report. It shows a number of arrests and convictions for theft. Did he cross over from thief to quadruple murderer and baby killer? That's what the DA wants us to believe. However, the evidence they have presented proves no such thing.

Comment of the Month!

Jerry Lamonica has left a new comment on your post "Open Discussion Thread – Part Two": 

As a long time follower of this case I have some questions. I originally believed the family was killed as a result of home invasion or a carjacking. After the arrest of Chase Merritt, like all of us I have waited and waited to hear the truth about what happened to this family.
