Listen: Brendan, Hawks, Founder discussed on Undisclosed
"So he confesses essentially, he confesses and and I think what's telling to me are a couple of things in the first interrogation at the school, the investigators kids something that no police officers should ever do. They told a sixteen year old impaired kid threatened in, you know the where cops, but I'm not a cop right now. I want to come over there and give you a hug. I'm founder. I can see that you're hurting awhile. It's very colors of extremely coercive than misleading and untrue. And at the very end of the interrogations after Brenton has confessed after he is said, can I go back to school from my sleep period project and asks about school a second time. The first thing, the investigators. Sends to Brendan is well, you know, Brandon, you know where cops I've never seen that happen in an interrogation. Since. When do you have to tell anybody you've interrogated over three days? You have to remind them that you're cops. It's insane. That's the ground rule that that that most normal people would understand what's in a few minutes of being interrogated. I'm a parent and I have kids in school, and I'm also a little bit confused about how the police one were able to get the school administrators say, yeah, go ahead, pick up the kid from class or lunch room, and you know, do whatever you need. I'm was assistant way to bypass parental consent. I mean, how is that it does that happen is that allowed is that? Is there a legal challenge to how they even did that? There's not a legal challenge. The failure to have a parent present during an interrogation is just one factor in assessing whether the end result of the confession is a voluntary confession or not. Some courts place some weight on the absence of. Parent, but unfortunately, too many courts give police officers passed. So it's a risk that police officers are willing to take with regard to that first interrogation, there was even no effort to make contact with Brendon's mother and the school officials readily gave him up to these investigators, never even contacted his mother. The second interrogation. There is some dispute the one on March. First, about what they told his mother barb about, you know what they were going to do with Brendan. She was in court all day. She had some proceedings with her divorce, so they knew that she was going to be unable to be there and they took him forty five minutes away from where she was going to be. And she, they actually used her absence against Brendan by saying that his mother had told them that Brendan would be cooperative and would tell them what they want to hear. So now the that they have gotten their confession. My question is, did the police attempt to corroborate that confession anyway, it was or any evidence to back up you talk with the bonfire. My recollection is miss hawks remains were actually they not. They weren't really found or were pieces found. I mean, like I thought that it was never her body was never found. So how do they do they even attempt to find evidence to tobacco up his confession? So the corporation question is a really, really good one in a really interesting and important won. MS hall box body was found about a week or we can half after her disappearance. Her remains were discovered in a bonfire pit that was located outside behind Steven, Avery garage. It appeared as though she had been essentially cremated in that bonfire pit in the remains were very, very small tree Maine's and bone fragments that were discovered in that pits really, really gruesome.."
