Late this afternoon two major stories broke almost simultaneously.Â First, this WRAL pieceÂ discusses the financial details surrounding a trip Marvin made to California in 2009Â from March 7-14.Â The media is obviously digging into those phone records and figuring some things out.Â Here is an excerpt that gives youÂ a feelÂ about what went on:
Wichard, Balmer and Austin claimed a coach from Austin’s high school paid for the flights for each trip Austin took to California. The coach, Todd Amis, told investigators that Wichard reimbursed his expenses.
According to the warrant, Amis showed investigators a canceled check from Wichard’s ProTect Management.
Blake’s cellphone records show that he and Amis began exchanging calls on March 3. They spoke four times. In one instance, Blake called Wichard three minutes after he spoke to Amis.
Amis and Blake spoke twice on March 6, for a total of nine minutes the day before Austin traveled to California. On March 11, the two spoke again for 12 minutes during two phone calls.
Wow!Â A canceled check!Â Love it!Â I think the “new news” here is the phone call record that suggests that Blake *could* have known and/or set up the Austin trip financialsÂ with Wichard.
This next item will blow your mind.Â Again from WRAL, this piece talks about some of the plates on Little’s car:
Parking ticket records associated with the vehicle registered to the Little family has been cited using at least three different tags, and one of the plates doesn’t exist according to the Department of Motor Vehicles. The other two plates are 30 day temporary tags issued by dealers when someone buys a car.
Dealers cannot issue temporary tags to the same vehicle for consecutive months but the parking records show tags were issued for the months of March and April 2009.
Both of the 30 day tags trace back to 919 Imports in Durham, according to the DMV.
This auto dealer has since closed and business owner, Shawn E. Brown, is now serving a federal sentence for money laundering.
Little’s father told WRAL Wednesday there is no reason the car should have had multiple plates
I don’t even know what to say anymore.
