On Thursday, Dennis Oland's murder investigation revealed new evidence of evidence found in a forested area on the west side of Saint John more than a month after his father, Richard Oland, was murdered.
The man, whom the police called on August 24, 2011, found some pieces of paper beside his residence with the nickname of a victim written on them.
The yellow sticky notes also included the names of his father Philip Oland, brother Derek Oland, executive president of Moosehead Pivovarna and his pra-pra-prasta Susaneh Oland, beer family member hearing the court.
Defense attorney Alan Gold raised this question during his cross-referenced cross-examination of the leading investigator Const. Stephen Davidson on the suitability of the investigation of the murder of the Saint John police.
Davidson met with a man and searched the property for any other evidence, but said he did not test the inflated notes for fingerprints, because he did not see the value due to the poor condition.
Gold suggested that hair be kept with one of the notes and asked Davidson to have been forensically tested. Davidson claimed that it was not clear if he was a hair or a lint, but he said that he was not sent for testing.
He acknowledged that he did not send the documents with the victim's secretary, Maureen Adamson, or the business partner Robert McFadden, to determine whether they recognize the manuscript or ask if the multimillion used such sticky notes in their everyday work.
"Absolutely not been following these documents that were found, right?" asked Gold.
"Okay," replied Davidson.
The three notes that were put into evidence are also the names "Officer Mike Stephen Mark."
50-year-old Oland, who is repeated for the murder of his father in the death of his father. He was the last known person to see Richard Olanda alive when he visited his father at Canterbury Street on the evening of July 6, 2011.
The body of the 69-year-old was discovered in the office the following morning, descending into the pool of blood, with damage of 45 strokes per head, neck and arms.
The jury found in December 2015 that Oland was guilty, but the New Brunswick court of appeals rejected the conviction in October 2016 and ordered a new trial that announced the instructions of the judge who tried the trial.
The retrial, which began on November 21, is postponed to the holiday until 7 January at 9:30. It is expected to last four months.
"Did I watch too CSI?"
The golden majority of Thursday's gold survived through the list of laundry items of all things that the police did not do in the investigation and challenged what steps they had taken.
He claimed that the police did not follow the training of the police academy. Officials did not address the lobby or exit doors outside the bloody service of the victim as part of the site to prevent the contamination of any evidence, said Gold.
They did not inspect the offices where his loose body was scattered, or the door of the killer had to walk, sufficiently accurate for evidence, he claimed.
"Did I watch too much CSI"Gold asked Davidson:" Is not it what you should do at the scene of the crime to examine it as closely as possible and look for evidence of traces? Is not that what we should do? "
"Yes," answered Davidson.
The police also did not test their theory of a hammer from a dry wall, which could have been a weapon used for wounded victims.
They did not disclose local cleaners to find out if anyone brought a bleeding outfit.
But they did not list the bloody leaves that were found on or around the victim's table before they dropped the scenes back to the owner.
Davidson was a new major criminal unit when the police called at 52 Canterbury St. morning on 7 July 2011, the court heard.
He was one of the first police officers on the scene and previously testified in the testimonies that he unlocked and opened the exit door in the lobby, which was never tested for forensic evidence because it was contaminated.
"You did not follow the rules at this crime scene, did you?" asked Gold, which refers to its protection against contamination.
Davidson said he was careful not to touch anything in the office and return to the lobby. He did not believe that the last part of the crime scene was, he said.
"It's right or wrong I opened it."
"It was not" right or wrong ", it was wrong," he broke gold.
"Yes," Davidson agreed.
"I would not do that today, would I?" Gold asked.
"No," the policeman replied.
Defense has previously informed the court that the quality of the investigation of the Saint John Police will mainly be in the defense of Olanda at a retrial for second-degree murder.
In the defense documents, the defense said they intend to claim "that it is [Saint John Police Force’s] the investigation into the murder of Richard Oland was inadequate and will also try to hinder the conduct and credibility of the various SJPF officials involved in the investigation. "
On Wednesday, he came on Wednesday during a direct inspection by Davidson, prosecutor P. Crow. P. Veniot questioned what kind of a security video of Thandie's restaurants, located across the street from the victim's office, from the day of the murder.
When Veniot used a defensive exhibition from the first trial to help Davidson describe the location of both cameras and their coverage areas, Gold stood for the court.
"Just to be clear, justice, we did it," he said, referring to aerial photography with shady areas. "This was not part of the police investigation. This is not something the official did.
"As you know, the quality of the investigation in the police will be a problem in this case, so I just want to know what you see there, and the appropriate oral testimony of the official is a defensive product."
