April 28, 2020

With Joe Alsip still sitting in jail, the prosecution has rested and now it's time for the defense. Richard Hanawalt (here's a photo!) is ready to go to town as he continues his cross examination of the Rev Mikel and others from the church. Meanwhile, we learn of Charlene's affair and the victim's daughter (me!) takes the stand. Hang on folks, this pod has a lot of information.

The twists and turns of my father and stepmother's lives, along with the cast of supporting characters you couldn't make-up, turns Alsip's preliminary hearing into a crazy, convoluted mess. But the stuff they have on the pastor?!? This is nuts. Sometimes I can't help but laugh!

We know Joe Alsip didn't do it, and yet, he's sitting in jail, month after month, based on evidence, procedures, hypnosis and more and time just keeps slipping away. As does the money. What a hot mess this is. More from the Ventura Star Free Press.

Lots of foreshadowing in this episode as we learn of the esteemed pastor and his role in the case. We also learn more about my dad's amazingly convoluted business dealings - I have no idea how they kept everything straight. Turns out, maybe they didn't.

From the Star Free Press in Ventura, starting Nov 20, 1981, we find out Joe Alsip is charged and we spend a lot of time understanding his struggle to afford a defense attorney. In sharp contrast, the real killer is soaking up California resources like a dry lake bed in Mono County.

I loved this interview so much. I did it on video for the Life Coach Pod (it's on YouTube) if you want to see Stacey in person. At the end of the interview, she talked about the Golden State Killer and then, and then! Stacey blew my mind. All the feels.

Caryl and Charlene grew up together - like sisters as she describes it - and she's one of the only people I know who understood how Charlene ticked. I have loved getting to know Caryl and I am bummed I didn't get to know Charlene better as an adult. I had one last visit, that was everything, and it turns out, it was the same for Caryl. I hope you enjoy this.
