TheRepulic reports on United States v. Burke. I know we often take issue with the quality of military law enforcement investigations. But maybe they are better than expected in the civilian community.
Burke’s attorneys questioned Walker [a civilian detective], who said Friday that his evidence technicians failed to find six shell casings at Karen Comer’s home where the shootings occurred. The casings were later recovered by a cleaning crew.
Walker also stated that he failed to interview a witness who reported hearing gunshots on the night of the murders for nearly six weeks.
