Who is Joseph R Flood?
« on: November 14, 2012, 08:14:18 PM »
And who does he represent?  He is listed as receiving a courtesy copy of the Notice of Deposition 11/09/2012.

GZLEGAL

Witness 1
Witness 2

That leaves John Wright, Crump's PI and Capt. O'Conner.  I can see Crump's PI getting a lawyer but it also makes me wonder if O'Conner has a Union Rep Lawyer to escort him for this.

Website for Flood

I find it to be very curious.  See AVIE.

ETA:
OK.  He is listed on several of the depositions.  All have some kind of LE listed in them.  But when it comes to the ME's office depositions of Tara Malphrus and Shiping Bao he is not there. 

Looking over his BIO, I don't see anything that would lead me to believe he is a Union Rep lawyer but I am kind of slow about these things.  Would a Union Rep be a civil servant or a private practice attorney?

One of his specialties is 'governmental liability'.

Sorry to be dense but does that mean that he is with the Witnesses or with the Defense?

Joseph Flood is the gentleman that Judge Nelson had a hard time getting on the phone at the Oct. 26 hearing (23:05-24:15, 2:09:54-13:56). He stated that 'I am appearing on behalf of the city of Sanford and its employees and officers' (2:10:41-45).

Thank you very much!

My pleasure.

I should have mentioned that I only worked that out because you said all his depositions had LE. I vaguely recalled the phone guy representing the witness interests in the sequestration motion. Your leg work wasn't in vain.

The ME people work for Volusia County.

Wonder why they have no representation?

On another note, do you remember who or have the list saved of witnesses that BdlR inadvertently released?  The link here has been 404ed.  I am trying to find the two Sanford community leaders on the list, one of which I am assuming to be Bonaparte.

That makes me wonder if this is normal for Sanford City employees.

ETA: I don't think Volusia County is at any risk of being sued. No one has accused them of any impropriety.

Testing the blood of the deceased is routine. The idea that it was problematical was based on false claims that it was somehow instigated by the Sanford PD.

I think I was offline most of the day when this happened. The list came and went without me seeing it.

This news site discusses it and has a link to it that still works.

If I remember right , there was some narrative in the autopsy report that mirrored Serino's.  It made me wonder at the time how much influence he had over it.  To my limited knowledge, Serino was not present during the autopsy.  I don't remember an LE presence there and I haven't got the time to go look right now.

Unlike TV murder mysteries, where the detectives hover over the ME, hoping for a clue as to why the body in the locked room died without a mark on it, I don't think the Sanford PD thought there was any doubt about cause of death, so they'd probably have expected the autopsy to be pretty routine, and would have been unlikely to have someone travel to the next county over to hang around waiting for the results or to try to steer the examination one way or another.

The Person of Contact was Chris Serino.

From the narrative by Malphurs,
POC stated:
...The caller stated that the male should not have been in the area and he observed the male while walking his neighborhood watch.   Shortly after the call, the resident confronted the male and the two began to physically fight.  Witnesses observed the two fighting in the yard and then the resident fired a handgun at the male and striking him in the chest.  The male fell to the ground.  SPD and SFD arrived at the scene.  The male was pronounced at 19:30.  The identity of the male was unknown.

Page 137

How would Malphurs know that "the resident confronted" anyone if Serino had not told her as such?   

And I don't remember Zimmerman ever saying that Martin should not have been in the area in the NEN.  He called because of recent burglaries and suspicious behavior. 

She is using Serino's narrative though she doesn't specify whether he called her or was there directly.

Now very off topic for this thread so I am CCPing myself over to the Evidence thread under the ME report.

Here is an interesting site dedicated to exposing corruption in the Volusia County medical examiners office, the Central Florida law enforcement community and the SAO.

They claim a law enforcement representative is usually present at homicide autopsies.

Quote
It has been our experience that most, if not all, medical examiners and law enforcement agencies within the local Central Florida area, either by policy, or by practice, have an investigator at the autopsy of a possible homicide victim.

UPDATE May 28, 2012 - VolusiaExposed.Com randomly selected five other homicides / suicides that transpired within the city limits of Sanford, Florida. We then, made a public record request for those autopsy reports from Volusia County officials. We were advised by officials, that only two of the five reports were currently available for public record release.(Some of these death investigations are still active - please see the below email communications between VolusiaExposed.Com and Volusia County officials)

Interestingly, both autopsy reports that were available as public records, clearly indicated that Sanford law enforcement officers do exercise a practice of attending autopsies of suspected homicide and suicide victims. So why didn't they attend Trayvon Martin's autopsy?


Quote
With all the lying, falsification and case manipulation attached to this case, we seriously doubt that TRUE justice can be found for either Trayvon or George. This case is driven more by politics, then by facts, or the truth (whatever that may be).

The whole Martin / Zimmerman debacle is merely a well publicized symptom of the little acknowledged disease of political corruption, that breeds unabated, within the Central Florida law enforcement community.

Serino was at the Green TH by 9:00am the morning of the autopsy which began around 10:00am for notification and identification.  Did Tracy M and Brandy G go to the station from there or did they go the next day?  Sorry, I can't remember but I am thinking it was the next day, Tues.  That is the day that he listened to the 911 call, right?
