FBI - Computer Evidence

10:41am. FBI special agent James McDonald (based in Philadelphia) takes the stand. ADA Paul Hernon takes over direct-examination.

-McDonald testified that he obtained computer evidence from the home of Cheryl Brown. Hard drive copy was made. Computer then returned.

-He looked at what's called a computer storage account titled "Big Toot". 33 different files of interest.

-We look at temporary Internet files from February 12, 2006. We see evidence of a Mapquest search for directions from a Philadelphia address to 4571 Commercial Drive, New Hartford (Lennon's-Wilcox Jewelers). February 22: Google search for Rolex watches, police communication scanners, authorized Rolex dealers.

-Unsuccessful Internet searches were also made for "Lennons.com", "WBWilcox.com", "Wilcox.com" and other variations.

-Mapquest route recommended (from Philadelphia) taking I-81 to Binghamton to Rte. 12 North.

-Defense attorney Rebecca Wittman declines cross-examination and McDonald is off the stand at 11:17am. Back after a ten minute break.

The first comment is from someone who clearly does not understand the process... the defense has conducted discovery and know what the evidence is going to be - Healy know all the evidence against him and chose to still have a trial - nothing to lose because he wasn't being offered a deal he wanted. The defense is pointing to the Felony Murder in this case - as in the opening when she said this charge is legally equivalent to a change of robbing $100.00 and on the way out killing someone accidentally with your car.

u may not understand the process but i'm sure the computer and temp files played a big role in this case also.u can never completely clean or format a computer hard drive it still has hidden file that the experts can find which helped in this case prove that healy and his other dirt bag buddies were trying to locate lennon's for the role and use of robbery purposes.

The things that the FBI can find on computers these days are amazing. Special agent McDonald really pulled this case together for the prosecution.

I'm sure though that Healy and his pals thought deleting the records was "good enough". Its odd how they decided to choose Lennon's WB Wilcox. I know it sounds like they searched for Rolex dealers....but you would think there are more dealers closer to Philly and that they wouldn't have to travel all this way for watches. They're either that stupid or they have other connections here in town. I don't know..just a random thought. But from the sounds of it....there are definitely others involved. Wouldn't you just love to force it out of Healy????

HURRAY FOR MODERN TECHNOLOGY! AREN'T COMPUTERS GREAT! FOR WHAT EVER WOULD HEALY'S GIRLFRIEND HAVE DIRECTIONS TO NEW HARTFORD, ROLEX DEALERS, ETC. NO WONDER MISS WHITMAN HAD NOTHING FOR CROSS! I CAN'T WAIT TO READ THE BLOGS FOR THE DEFENSE - WHERE EVER WILL SHE FIND SOMEONE TO REFUTE ANY OF THIS? AT LEAST WE CAN GET ONE MORE OF THESE LOW-LIFE SCUMS OFF THE STREETS.

How do you know these scums did not hit a jewelry store closer to Philadelphia - they probably did. Do you have any idea how many jewelry stores are robbed everyday and the perpetrators never caught.
