So let's take a gauzy look back at the lazy, crazy, hazy days of the court case, as spring performed its annual magical transforming act into summer.
- Monday: Former Spector lawyer Sara Caplan got herself checked in to the Graybar Hotel courtesy of a contempt of court charge for refusing to testify about what she may have seen at the crime scene.
- Tuesday: The gorefest begins! The jury got to see the post-shooting photos of Clarkson, blood oozing from her nose and mouth, helped along by a macabre Vincent Price narration from L.A. County Sheriff's Department forensic scientist Dr. Lynne Herold. She also said someone moved the body and told us why, and in the telling left no gore unexplored.
- Wednesday: Dr. Herold hints strongly that the body mover (and not just with his Ike and Tina Turner productions) may have been Phil Spector himself. She also said Spector was two feet away from Clarkson when the shot rang out, contradicting earlier defense testimony that he was more than six feet away from the victim.
- Thursday: Herold, under cross-examination by defense attorneys, restated her earlier testimony that the gun used had been smeared -- most likely wiped of blood by someone, which would preclude Clarkson, for obvious reasons.
- Friday: Non-testifying lawyer Caplan sprouted wings and got sprung from the clink, where she cooled her heels for not giving up testimony pertaining to a piece of Clarkson's fingernail that may point to her not having shot herself, counter to the defense's theory. Happy first day of summer, Lawyer Caplan, and a belated one to all you readers, from the Spinner Spector Detector®!
