I spent a lot of time with the Defendant yesterday making sure you got a very full development of what those relations were, with the dynamics, of at least Justin, Anastasia, Kelly and Byron were.It was, to say the least, complex, especially if you're 14 or 15 and they're all 18 and 20. Verycomplex. And she, for some reason, is reaching out maybe the way a teenager would do, and that's whereshe has reached out, outside her family.Page 1221Once this horrible thing happened so suddenly and her life is changed so dramatically, the thingthat's there is Justin and Byron, and they start concocting this story. This story. This very simple story thateverybody that knew Anastasia would believe there is a relationship problem. Everybody knows about.There is her own nature to just kind of storm out of the apartment at The Plaza. There is this, like, constant bickering. And she has this fight. She gets out. She walks away, and they drive off.That's the story and that's the nucleus of where she is stuck. She is no longer reaching out to them.She is stuck with it. So that's the story.The next day, after she goes back, you know they do some things, and she described that for you.It's like how are they going to reach out of their little nucleus and start including other people in?They go back to the condo and practice their story about trying to get to Kelly's house for her mother's benefit to kind of get an anchor outside of their group.Page 1222Kelly runs right up and tells this simple story that we're in this horrible neighborhood, this badneighborhood, Erotic City, and she just gets out at night, and we haven't heard from her. Justin is downthere calling her now. I hope she is okay.The mom is the first anchor outside of that group when they're including some other people. Later on there is Kneisley. Tara. Those are other people without Kelly they go and they start talking to her. Littleanchors where they can start showing they're normal.Kelly came, well, the next day, you remember, Kelly is with her mom and sleeps all the way downto the grandmother's nursing home and all the way back. It's the shelter of not interacting with her mother,hoping this goes away, not knowing how to deal with this. And she is 15 years old, and she sees a horrible,horrible thing for her to have to deal with.How do you tell your mother you've been a part of it? How do you tell anybody? She can't figure itout.Page 1223Now, she went to Sergeant Kilgore that Friday. Her mother took her and took Byron. They both toldthe same simple story. Byron's story gives you more insight of, even if their story is true, the cruelindifference that is displayed that when she leaves the car. "We just go by. I don't even think anything of it.We don't even talk about it in the car back to The Plaza. We just play Nintendo when we get there. We'rethere for about a half hour. Friend Kneisley calls. I go take care of my friend. He's got a favor. Got to getthat curfew thing taken care. We go over there." It's about an hour and a half after this little girl drops off ina bad area at night before anybody thinks, "Well, I'll call her family." An hour and a half. Such indifferencetells you that story didn't start being true from the beginning.What Justin has done, even though he's not here, he does tell us things through our evidence.
