As much as possible I am keeping abreast of the investigation of the double murder of David Balmer and his girlfriend. Maj Tan and the investigators of Station Four are not slacking off on this case and, for sure, Richard Agnew is NOT a suspect. I have received Emails in which some folks think he might be involved but I will stand by my conviction that this is not so. The house remains a crime scene but Richard is till allowed to live there. But, while this investigation is ongoing let us not forget our evil serial killer, Mark Dizon. I cannot be there to attend his trial but I have asked a friend to do so if he could spare the time. He was able to do so and his comments follow:
“I attended the latest Mark Dizon hearing in the pm. It's still being held at the temp courtroom in Marisol. On the stand was Maritz the neice of Al and Janet Mitchell. She was finishing up her testimony for the prosecution. The next hearing is on Sept 13 when she will take the stand for cross examination by the defense. After her will come the medical examiner and PNP officials. The trial dates are all on Tuesdays at 13:30. All thru Sept, Oct, Nov, etc. Dizon was there and the Judge is the same as before, The prosecutor is still Alan Pasamonte, and Dizon has his Public Defender lady, I didn't catch her name. Alan said he is about half way thru his prosecution case. The PD lady said she probably will call only Dizon for the defense. No one else is willing to testify.
Dizon’s family have totally abandoned him. No financial support, no visiting him, no attending the trial, etc. They won't even cooperate with the public defender lady in his defense. Dizon is screwed. He's totally alone in this. There is a Filipino documentary crew that is filming the trial and collecting statements from anyone involved in the case. The lady in charge said eventually they will make a documentary on this whole case. I talked to Maritz for a while, she and Sharina are slowly getting their lives back on track. The Mitchell house is being rented out.
I took some photos that I have attached. Feel free to use them for a trial update. Dizon put on a good face in the courtroom but he is fucked. The Judge is a no nonsense guy. He is in total control of the courtroom. He gets up and roams around looking at Dizon, looking at the witness, looking at the evidence.....taking everything into account. The prosecutor asks his questions and then the judge takes over and asks his own questions. I am supremely confident Dizon will be found guilty in the Mitchell case. But the other two cases (Oasis & Santa Maria) are not doing very well. I have no real info on those cases.” (I had the same opinion after attending the trials before I left for the US. I am so happy to learn that Dizon is receiving no support from anyone. It is too bad the Philippines no longer has the death sentence but hopefully, if found guilty, he will get a life sentence)
