    1. I was amazed that he was able to do so well. I stopped watching for a couple of days because he seemed to be rambling all over. I figured he’d botch closing arguments badly. But managed to connect all the dots very well.

    1. Someone mentioned that a week or two after the murders, AM tried to get Buster to go down to the kennels to hunt, and Buster was thrown off cause “why would I go to the spot where my mother and brother was killed?”
      AM kinda chuckled it off and said “it’ll be fine, no worries” he never went…
      It was in a phone call between them two!!

    2. Buster live out of town with girlfriend and he was working. Plus it known Buster was his favorite.
      Paul had emotional problems that got him into trouble. Paul was driving the boat and facing prison. Paul was causing him too much trouble and money. Alex got the two he wanted.

  1. Wasn’t there a big life insurance policy on Maggie and wasn’t she inquiring about divorcing AM? Going to a divorce lawyer? Why aren’t these things mentioned?

  2. Wow I don’t think anyone has ever looked so guilty as him as when they started talking about Pauls injury’s. Dude is a monster. That prosecutor came prepared he killed it.

  3. Who was the younger guy sitting behind prosecution table (next to Goth Girl) who was laughing and showing his legal pad to guy next to him?
