Don't know who the author is but what follows was online.

On the Whites: “Priscilla had an opinion about everything. She viewed herself as the moral authority on all matters. They were California Republicans who had come to Colorado for a quieter, slower pace life for their kids. My husband liked Fleet but said that in the aftermath of the murder he changed. My husband felt uncomfortable around him and said that Fleet kept making comments that were concerning. He called Fleet about three weeks after the murder to check on him and Fleet went on a rant about how JonBenet’s death was a Boulder only issue and outsiders shouldn’t be worried about it. He then he said he was going to go to the Mayor and ask her to expel all non-local media from the city. My husband taught constitutional law for fourteen years and told Fleet that something like that would be illegal and impossible. Fleet didn’t care. Then sometime later I ran into Fleet at the grocery store, he pulled me aside and put his hands on my shoulders and said “Look, you and [Witness’ Husband Name Redacted] are on our team, right?” I had no idea what he was talking about and I told him that. He leaned closer and his grip on my shoulder tightened. “Priscilla and I need to know that we can count on you.” I was startled and honestly a bit scared. I politely told him that I had to leave because I was in a hurry and left the store as fast as I could. I remember driving home and feeling very uneasy. I kept checking my rear view and side mirrors. Once I pulled into the garage I let the door close all the way before getting out of the car. We still see [i]the Whites around the city, but they don’t acknowledge us at all. Once I said hi to Priscilla as she walked past me and she just rolled her eyes and kept going.”[/i]

  Morrissey on Craig Silverman
Posted by: jameson245 - 04-07-2021, 12:34 PM - Forum: Mitch Morrissey - Replies (2)

Part one, not related to Ramsey

Welcome to the Craig’s Lawyers Lounge https://tunein.com/podcasts/News--Politi...=156726003 2:57:00 Craig Silverman: Oh, what a day! What a life! What a world. A world in which I've known Mitch Morrissey for the majority of my life. We got to know each other at the Denver DAs office. We were both courtroom prosecutors, and we played a lot of sports together. Mitch, welcome back to Craig's Lawyers Lounge. Mitch Morrissey: Well, thanks for having me, Craig. It's been a while. Craig Silverman: I know it. Mitch went on to be the three term DA in Denver. Did I get that right? Mitch Morrissey: Yes. I was elected in 2004, started in 2005 and was term limited then in 2017. Craig Silverman: And I know that's darn shame. You like those term limits. What? Didn't you like to still be the Denver DA. If you could? Mitch Morrissey: Well, it'd be a tough time to be, but, you know, I was the DA during a lot of tough times, so I think we would have been up to the challenge, and yeah, I mean, had I not been term limited, I'm sure I would have run for reelection. Craig Silverman: I looked up the I looked up the phrase career prosecutor and there was a picture of Mitch Morrissey. Do you accept that kind of title? Mitch Morrissey: Well, I did up until 2017 before I started a startup, and now I'm the CFO of a small startup. So, yeah, I was a career prosecutor, and I'm still kind of in the business, but I don't go to court anymore. Craig. You get to do that. Craig Silverman: I do. But you're keeping your law license active. You never know Mitch. The Craig Silverman Show    Craig’s Lawyer’s Lounge w/Mitch Morrissey August 22, 2020    2  Mitch Morrissey: Oh, I do have my law license. Sure, and there's nobody knocking down my door to hire me as a prosecutor. I mean, I work with prosecutors currently. I had a very good experience with the guy who's running for DA out in Douglas and Arapahoe, who did the cold case that we solved. You know, I still interact with them, but you know it's not my job anymore. Craig Silverman: What about criminal defense? Could you ever do that? Mitch Morrissey: I could. I could do criminal defense. My father did. For years, my grandfather was the US Attorney for Colorado, and then he did some criminal defense with his partner, who was a famous criminal defense attorney in Colorado, Fred Dickerson. They were partners for almost their entire lives, starting at DU, World War one. And then, you know, they were partners throughout their careers. And Dickerson really taught my father how to be a defense attorney. My brother does a little defense work, although he would rather do personal injury cases. But yeah, I could do it, Craig. In the right situation, you know, kind of like you. You know, you could do it. I've seen you do it. Craig Silverman: Yes, I can do both, but I still think of myself as a former prosecutor. And when I'm described that way, I don't shrug that off because that was a major part of my life. 16 years. Mitch Morrissey: You were good at it. Craig Silverman: Thank you. Mitch Morrissey: Very good at it, Craig. I watched you many times. Craig Silverman: I appreciate that. And you were great at your job too. And we both had a certain level of intensity. And the other thing that we have in common, your old man was a lawyer. Your grandpa was a lawyer of course. Your grandpa very prominent U. S attorney, my grandpa working man in the Sims building. And I think about those times, you know, the Ku Klux Klan era has been talked about in the context of Stapleton. But our grandpas lived through that era. Did your grandpa ever pass down those stories? 3:00:46 The Craig Silverman Show    Craig’s Lawyer’s Lounge w/Mitch Morrissey August 22, 2020    3  Mitch Morrissey: Yeah, you know, a little bit. My grandpa died when I was about eight, so I never really got a chance to, and he was sick most of the time, you know, he was a chain smoker, and, you know, he was one of those guys that never had an unlit cigarette, never had an unlit cigarette. He'd like one out to the other. And emphysema got him. And, you know, he's kind of, he was kind of grumpy, so I never really got to sit down and talk to him about it. But, you know, obviously my dad knew a lot about it, and we got to work with Judge Moore. Who? Justice Moore, who lived through it. Craig Silverman: The great Justice O Otto Moore, who was part of the Colorado Supreme Court. Mitch Morrissey: You know, he did some wild things as a prosecutor. He did some wild things against the Klan. And then, of course, you know the Klan really went after the Denver DA, Phil Van Cise, tried to end his career. So, he fought them the whole time he was the DA. And it may have been why. He was only a one term DA. But yeah, he is a very popular guy until the Klan went after him. Craig Silverman: You know, my grandpa was a little grumpy himself, and he smoked cigars back-to-back. And I only knew him till I was about fourth grade. Just like you lost your grandpa I lost mine. But I heard about it through my father similarly. My grandpa Harry, who was very smart, had to send a non-Jewish lawyer to court in Denver because otherwise they wouldn't get a fair break. And he wanted that for his clients. In speaking of O Otto Moore, once when I was an intern, in my God with the great Justice O Otto Moore in our presence, he yelled from across the room, Silverman get over here. And I'm like, wow, what did I do? You know, did I put a terrible paragraph in a brief? And I said, yes, sir, what's up? And he said, I've got a bone to pick with you. I said, what is that? He said, but for your grandfather, I would have been number one at the Westminster School of Law. Mitch Morrissey: That's a great story. Craig Silverman: And I took that as great compliment that he knew my Grandpa Harry and respected him as a scholar of the law, and you and I, we go way back. Are there going to be any more Morrissey lawyers in the change? The Craig Silverman Show    Craig’s Lawyer’s Lounge w/Mitch Morrissey August 22, 2020    4  Mitch Morrissey: Yeah, well, I have a nephew who's a lawyer up in Fort Collins. He's not a Morrissey, but he's my nephew and he actually has a very good practice. And I think he's taking a position in the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association. And you know, he's doing a great job his named Sam Cannon. But right now, you know, none of my kids are interested in the law, and they have professions. But just one quick Otto Moore story. We were getting ready for the bar exam as interns and Judge Moore came in, and Dave Danske asked him one of the questions. And he got it wrong. It was on self-defense. And about a day later, Judge Moore came walking into the library where we all were. And he said, read that case, Danske. I wasn't wrong and it was a decision that he'd written in Colorado about self-defense. And it was right. He was right. In Colorado, you can find self-defense as a matter of law, and the multi state was wrong on it, or at least a practice question. And without missing a beat. Dave Danske looks at me and goes, isn't Mike Morrissey your father? And I said, Yeah, he's my dad and he said he defended this case. And so, Moore wrote it. My dad defended it and, you know, successfully argued that this man up on West Colfax had killed this guy in selfdefense as a matter of law. So it was. Judge Moore was just great to have around. He was always doing things like that. But that's a great story you tell about your grandpa, Craig. Craig Silverman: No, that's a great story. You just told him my old man grew up just in the 1400 block of Quitman talking about West Colfax. It's amazing how far we go back in the connections we have. 3:04:54 You've got a great company called United Data Connect, which is about your expertise in DNA. Mitch Morrissey has been featured on 60 Minutes. He goes around the country around the world lecturing how DNA fits into criminal prosecution. But here, on my podcast Mitch, will you acknowledge that yes Craig, your humble host, you did the first DNA case in Colorado. and I did. And I learned how to say deoxyribonucleic acid. And the jury thought I understood it as well as Mitch Morrissey. The Craig Silverman Show    Craig’s Lawyer’s Lounge w/Mitch Morrissey August 22, 2020    5  Mitch Morrissey: Well, you also had a very good co-counsel who studied up. And he went on to be your partner who, who you know, David, did a lot of hard work on that. You had the first case. I'm not sure when that Lindsey case comes in, but I've never taken, I've never tried to claim I had the first case in Denver. You had the first case. You know, Groves was pretty early on. Craig Silverman: The Capitol Hill rapists, and, uh, it was a Denver case, but it got moved to Pitkin County, Aspen, for the most enjoyable month of my life. Wow. What a lot of fun we had up there and We got to convict the Capitol Hill rapist of his seventh rape up in Aspen, that that was really a great experience. But you've gone on to be the king of DNA. How did that happen? Mitch Morrissey: Well, it was that Fishback case which ended up in front of the Colorado Supreme Court. And it's where they decided that DNA was admissible in court for purposes of identification. Of course, the technology changed and we spent a decade litigating the admissibility of the new systems. Then really the good thing is, as systems have become commonplace and haven't changed a lot, and so once we won those battles, that kind of stopped. But you know as well as I do, Craig, when you're going to cross examine an expert in their field, you need to study. You need to understand what they're saying, especially if they're talking in a language you're not used to. And I was really not a scientific kind of student, so I mean, I learned the biology of DNA. I learned the genetics of DNA, and I learned the statistics that you have to present in court and I did it. I really cut my teeth doing it, cross examining experts that were brought in saying that it wasn't any good. And usually, the problem was they were using it in their regular day to day jobs and were making a lot of money coming in and saying it was no good. So, they were national guys. They would come in and you had to really be ready to cross them with papers. You know, peer reviewed papers that were making the point you needed. And you have to read all that stuff. I had to learn from it. I had great help from Dr Laberge from the crime lab and a doctor who helped me early on the Fishback case up at the medical school. Spent a lot of time in the library at the medical school reading up on it. The Craig Silverman Show    Craig’s Lawyer’s Lounge w/Mitch Morrissey August 22, 2020    6  And, you know, then different people helped me from across the United States. A great friend of mine from the Oakland D. A s office Rock Harmon. He would send you a transcript of one of these experts and was back before faxes and all that. I got one on a Greyhound bus that he shipped me so he could get it here in a couple of days from California. So, you know, I just had all those cases. Craig Silverman: Right. That Rock Harmon was part of the O. J case. Mitch Morrissey: He was brought in to do the DNA with Woody Clark from San Diego. So, you had a guy from Oakland and a guy from San Diego that were brought in, and they were only supposed to do the pretrial hearings, and then the LA DA got nervous because his staff was not up to speed and they had to stay and present the evidence in the case. But you need to talk to Rock about that. I mean, it was It's something that, you know, it was not the greatest experience. I don't think for him. Craig Silverman: No, it had to be terrible. And Barry Scheck, who used DNA to exonerate people through the Innocence Project, found a way by saying, what about that, Mr. Fung? to poke holes in the prosecution case even though he knew better. I mean, the blood evidence, the forensic evidence, the hair O J. Left behind a lot of evidence. 3:09:30 Mitch Morrissey: He left behind mixtures. They found mixtures of all three that people's blood remember O. J cut himself. So, his wife's blood mixed with Goldman's blood mixed with O. J s blood on the inside hand of the handle of the corridor on the driver's side of the Bronco. Evidence like that that was never even presented in the trial. But how does Goldman's blood get inside OJ's Bronco? Maybe O. J beat his wife in the Bronco, and you could explain a mixture of his blood in her blood. But how does Goldman's blood get in his Bronco? And it was on the inside of a door handle where you had to reach in and pull the handle open. The Craig Silverman Show    Craig’s Lawyer’s Lounge w/Mitch Morrissey August 22, 2020    7  That's the kind of evidence they had in that case, and a lot of it they weren't able to present because mixtures at the time were something that were complicated and hadn't been ruled to be admissible. And the OJ team, the defense team, was smart. They ran that trial. They ran that as the trial as fast as they could. And they also got a change of venue, which I think both parties agreed to it. Craig Silverman: Yeah, he did, Mitch Morrissey: Garcetti, He agreed he thought the case was right. Craig Silverman: He was trying to avoid urban upset, and you just can't take a chance like that on a case of that kind. In fact, it's the current mayor's father who did that, right? Mitch Morrissey: Who did what? I think so, yeah, he was the DA Garcetti. Craig Silverman: He was Garcetti. His son is now the mayor. He's the Mayor of LA. But he was the DA who made the fateful, terrible decision to change venue, and it became a racial issue. And really, that case should have been resolved on science. But there is justice, Friday, August 21, 2020 Joseph James DeAngelo just got sentenced for 53 separate crimes, something like 87 victims, 11 California counties. He acknowledged in court. He committed 13 rapes and 13 murders. He's also known as the Golden State Killer. And wasn't that function of DNA and science? Mitch Morrissey. 3:11:50 Mitch Morrissey: It was the first genetic genealogy case, which is based on DNA and using the public databases that we use to solve the cases that we're solving. Currently, we're in Colorado using the same technology, so you know, you think it was two years ago and it's the latest, and it's extremely good, if you have the right amount of DNA, and if it's not a mixture, it has its limitations. The Craig Silverman Show    Craig’s Lawyer’s Lounge w/Mitch Morrissey August 22, 2020    8  But that was the first case, and it really kind of spring boarded the whole idea that you could do genetic genealogy and you could solve these cases. You know, you could eliminate a whole lot of people and you could get down to the suspect, which, you know, in the Golden State Killer case, that guy was doing some stuff Craig that, you know, breaking in and killing couples? Tying them up, making the husband watch while he sexually assaulted the victim. You know, I met the brother years ago of one of the one of his last victims down in Southern California, and you know, he foots the bill for the entire campaign to get the arrestee statute, the arrestee law in California. Their legislature wouldn't pass DNA upon arrest on a felony, so he said, fine, I want my brother's killer caught. I will pay for this and he wrote the check and funded the campaign. His name was Harrington. He was he was a great guy, and I was able to meet with him a couple of times when we were pushing for that in Colorado. Craig Silverman: You did great work on that. And now you continue with your company, United Data Connect, to tell people when they should connect with your company under what circumstances. Mitch Morrissey: Well, we primarily work with law enforcement and, unfortunately, just on cold cases. Obviously, this is a methodology that could be used on current cases, but we've solved cold cases in Colorado. We've got a number of successes. Last week, actually, the Douglas County sheriff announced the identification of a Jane Doe that we identified. She had been found in a forest 27 years ago. The Pike and Isabel National Forest down you know, in Woodland Park and Deckers in Colorado. She was She was dead. She was unidentifiable. We identified her. We found her biological father and then went through some further investigation. The detectives were able to find her biological mother. She had been removed from the mother when she was three. The father had never laid eyes on her. It was a one-night stand type thing, and then we found, unfortunately, the family that really cared about her and raised her was her adopted family. And we're able to do that. 3:14:40 The Craig Silverman Show    Craig’s Lawyer’s Lounge w/Mitch Morrissey August 22, 2020    9  We've solved rapes. We had an arrest in Arvada, and of course, the man is innocent until proven guilty. But Mr. Blomquist got arrested on a 2002 sexual assault of a 60-year-old woman. And then we solved a number of murders. You know, probably the one that your audience would know the best was again down in Douglas County. But, you know, we solved the murder of Helen Paczynski, the young woman that came here from the Massachusetts area in 1980. She was 21 years old. And Craig, this is one of those rising star victims. And I know you tried a lot of horrendous murders and assaults, and this young woman was here for a couple of weeks, staying with her aunt and uncle. She took the RTD bus out to Englewood for the last time. She was saying she was working downtown and radio station. This rapist got ahold of her. He was on parole for rape out of Arkansas. He was here on a parole transfer. He grabbed her at knifepoint, raped or took her out in the field out in Highlands Ranch, which is now all developed. And mm, he just butchered her. He stabbed her numerous times in the back and killed her. We were able to solve that one. We solved another one about that same time. A young woman. Her name was Jeanie Moore, and she had been hitchhiking again. Another rapist got ahold of her. The guy was on bond for rape out of Westminster, but he was dead. Unlike Mr. Clanton. Who? You know, we, the Douglas County, we pointed him out to the Douglas County investigators. They went down, followed him around in Florida. Got some beer mug, you know, he was drinking beer at a bar. They got his mug. And, you know, they got his sample. The other ones where they've been dead. We've had to recreate their DNA profile through their Children. Jeannie Moore. We were able to talk to the daughter of the person that killed her. He was dead. But we also solve the oldest criminal case. 1963 Murder of Peggy back up in a Girl Scout camp again up near decker in Jefferson County. And I told the Sheriff. I said, you know, Sheriff, we just solved one where the guy was dead from 1980. You're chasing ghosts here, but we're more than happy to try to solve it. And we did. And they have not been able to find Mr. Taylor. His name is James Taylor. He'd be in his eighties, but his own kids haven't seen him since the seventies. But we're able to recreate his profile through them, so we know it's him and there's a warrant out for him. The Craig Silverman Show    Craig’s Lawyer’s Lounge w/Mitch Morrissey August 22, 2020    10  Craig Silverman: If I were looking for James Taylor, I tried the Berkshires up in Massachusetts and maybe down in North Carolina. Mitch Morrissey: Common name. Craig Silverman: That's just what I would do.

JonBenet Ramsey and a Foreign Faction

JonBenét Ramsey died on December 25th, 1996. A two and a half page ransom note was found and Patsy Ramsey called 911 at 5:52 am. You can listen to the call here. Patsy prioritized "address", “a note” and “a kidnapping” above her daughter being "gone". She never demanded nor asked for assistance but replied "please" on the suggestion help was on the way. That is not just odd, it reveals a perspective of the caller. The 911 call is considered deceptive.

For a long time the intruder theory believers have been citing DNA evidence in the case. Unidentified male “touch DNA” had been found on her clothing. The District Attorney’s office explains what touch DNA is in the exoneration letter of 2008. You scrape clothing and find some cells that you further develop into a DNA profile and since it is unidentified, it must have been an intruder.

[Image: JBR_Kolar_book.jpg]

James Kolar wrote a respectable account in his book “Foreign Faction.” Kolar was assigned lead detective to the Ramsey case in 2005. He had access to all investigative files and explains the touch DNA.

For DA Mary Lacy to exonerate the Ramseys was the right thing to do as the Ramseys suffered long enough. From an investigative perspective, the DNA evidence does not hold up to minimal scrutiny.

Touch DNA is DNA left behind when you touch something. According to Kolar, the FBI sampled off the shelf and packaged clothing for DNA and found DNA on never worn clothing as well. Apparently, handling of clothing leaves DNA behind and is not necessarily from someone who was in contact with JonBenét.

excerpt exoneration letter Mary Lacey July 9, 2008



According to Kolar, DNA from another four males and one female was also found. There is no mention of other DNA found in her letter and there sure is an innocent explanation for the DNA to be present.

The key evidence for exoneration is this touch DNA, yet, if it is assumed to be from one intruder who was in contact with JonBenét, then another five intruders must have been in contact with her as well. It is impossible to explain why one intruder, let alone a group of intruders, can be in the house, go unnoticed and leave no evidence of their presence behind other than some touch DNA.

It appears the DA office and John Ramsey both know this very well.

[Image: jbr_dna_ml_070908_2.jpg]
excerpt exoneration letter Mary Lacey July 9, 2008



Mary Lacy writes it will take more than DNA to solve what happened that night. Her word selection “your family was not responsible” is curious as this does not exclude involvement. When I am rear ended and my car slides forward breaking the leg of a pedestrian, I am involved, but not responsible. Is the DA office maybe aware that an accident happened that night?

John Ramsey is aware of that detail as well. In his 2008 interview with Oprah Winfrey, he answered the question “what do you think about the exoneration?” with “it is going in the right direction.” With this answer he explains to the world he knows it is not over.

I am writing a book titled “The principle of lying is telling the truth, just not the whole truth.” In this book the reader is taken on a forensic journey through handwriting and textual analysis.

The ransom note was signed as follows:



In my case study I will present a plausible theory an accident happened that night and reveal that S.B.T.C [sic] is the logical conclusion of the ransom note.

Kolar wrote a book worth reading. May Patsy rest in peace and may John find happiness in his new marriage.
