"fell" Discussed on What Shall We Do About...?
"The podcast. Ashley fell and you very much. It's lovely to have you on. Tocqueville things generational stuff as that. You spent so much time researching an se job releasing it. That's right we often say well. We often described as social researches and among friends and family on mike. It's basically like professional people watch An observer of human behavior so it's super interesting and we love talking about insights and trends particularly I guess the data that we get in surveys and we always love splitting it by generation can always gives us really interesting insights in differences. Well that's what we're talking about today. I'm across baby boomers. Jacks gen y. That's where i full what follows so jim. Y all often known as the millennials than we've got generations said after they were born between two thousand and nine and nine hundred ninety five and then we've got generation alpha's who have been born since the twenty ten so i know. Finish the phone in the at the end of twenty twenty four. That's what i'll mice racing bouquets about and part of the reason why we actually wrote the book. was because maki's credited with naming them generation which is pretty rare for someone to have that sort of client. How did he make that happen. How did he manage to name a generation. yes he wrote a book called the abc of xyz. I think it was back in two thousand and nine actually and when he was doing research for that he realized that nobody was thinking about talking about the net. What was to come off because we had xyz so obviously kind of i guess the next thing would be maybe go back to at He will just tests. What strategies thinks that. He ran a survey way back when and a lot of he. Austrailia is what do you think. The next generation should be cold and a lot of people said generation a or generation technology like using a bit more of a descript up but he thought that this kind of sort of naming system It's more way of moving to the greek alphabet. Once you've exhausted on latin so we did that and and that's why he decided and i think it's quite reflective of how he feels and how we feel about generation athletic and not just a retention the old but the start of something entirely new bad is whole new generation first to be fully born in twenty th century sorry yet generation alfred same stock and is he hoping that they'll be generation beta and gamma and then he can climb allies as well. Yeah that's right. The one like douglas copland. Who's an author. He he said. I think with generation x he was like just call us x. boxes and then ironically that started xyz ed So yeah i think we will get. I'm beta off to opt offering emma interesting safe that that takes but it definitely has in the loss. Everyone always asks. Did you just plop it out of thin air and we often say you know. We've been writing about and talking about generation alpha for ten years and we've over that time had the new york times and and folds and other sort of publications right about that. And i guess that's how we've been able to get that agency and so you wouldn't book for a couple of years announced finally out and about so actually exciting all right. Well let's talk a bit about generation alpha so we're kinda took and currently aged zero to eleven and the ones that'd be born in the next few years right okay. My kids fall into that. I've got a full year old and two year old. So i'm very interested in this book and i read a bit of it in so that it's general generally gen y. Who arising alpha. And i'm like that's that's me that's it. Yeah that's right so is really interesting Like last year. I think gen said kinda came out with these hall. Like don't call us millennials. Because i think a lot of people. Just use the millennials to describe like this young people but millennials is actually sort of more of a synonym for generation. Y i'm so jim. Y between in two thousand twenty one aged between twenty six and forty forty one actually so the oldest them have hit their forties already. And so i think. That's where jen's electa call us millennials. Wet where the next generation of young people. But that's right. I mean. I think a lot of people think of this next generation that realize that actually these the gen ys who were in their thirties. Miceli parenting generation. Alpha's so yeah honi generation. Pretty tech savvy. parents Compared to parents of the cost that still a pretty big divide between the two in times of the fact is that this generation outposts have only ever known a world of technology whereas the gym wise. I'm jim wise. Well we remember a time. Before those devices existed in allies. It makes me think though we are fairly tech savvy gen wise but i mentioned face. Eleven year olds in alpha now. Surely more tech savvy than i am absolutely and we did a lot of research for the books. I ran a few focus. Groups with parents conducted surveys into some experts. In different areas rounds. teaches ladies and it was really interesting every time hunting. When you ask the question what do you think. The key differences between generation after these young kids and your generation all pasta. It's always technology. And i think for us. I think one helpful way we often describe it is that generation began being born in the two thousand ten and that was the same e that the ipad was released into consumer's hands. That was the same that instagram won't on the oxford english dictionaries. Word of the year that year was the app and so these devices in as new ways of communicating. We all remember a time before they existed in allies but for generation outfits the whole world. I've only annoying. And we write in the book the age at which were exposed to a new technology or transformative events determines how embedded it is and it becomes asaki in our lifestyle and you have to this generation. Who only of a nine. This road of devices screens. It really does impact and influence them in a different way to those of us. Really old up. Does this mean that this generation screen more prone to screen addiction. And i'm not saying that i'm immune from it. I didn't grow up with screens as much as kids are now with tablets and on demand stuff is that a consent or is it actually a good thing for them in the development and growing to two nine more about the world around them. Yeah i think it's a really great question and we actually explored this I guess what we call these. Tensions that parents are facing in the book so you obviously an area lacks screens and technology has got to chase sides. Oh multiple it's very multifaceted. A lot of parents will like. It's it's great that Out don't have to spend as much time in the library like waited looking up words in encyclopedias. And it's just the click button up touch screen and this heats have benefits around connecting and we saw that with covid that we could work from high that we could that these kids could go to school effectively from higher man all of that enabled by technology and screens. There's definitely benefits There are also a lot of challenges that parents was saying addiction being one of them. The instant gratification that inability to have some patients or two white something. Something that we call up aging wick heeds Can very easily be exposed if they're online on youtube and things like that to things. That really aren't appropriate for them. So they kind of get alda at a young age so that kind of loss of innocence happing happening earlier or early than even brain is ready for inability to sit still..

He randomly added me on Facebook Windy. And, we had a mutual friend with a childhood friend of my little sisters. So I thought that maybe this was someone that I knew but had forgotten about and I didn't want to be rude. So. Then we just started talking and one day I drove out. To. Hang out with him and his crew and like a squat in Seattle and like an abandoned railway hanger that was still like Christmas decorations. As, one dose, it's pretty fun. As one does. Yeah and we ended up Yeah. We had like a fun fun night hanging out there. Then the next day I ended up staying the night we went skinny dipping and Lake Union I. Think. His friend drink like an entire fifth of Vodka 'cause he was sad about being broken up with and we ended up having to take him shouldn't emergency room. And this was your first. Your first hang out. Yeah. So. Squat. I think many people listening no but this is A. usually abandoned building not licensed for residential use that people go in and live in. You sleep there. You meet a random person facebook you sleep in his squad. So when you put it that way. something. You're something of a free spirit. You know that's that's. Sometimes, kind of yes.

Don't know if you've ever heard of Job Corps. I Have I've heard that a corner. Piece. I haven't heard of Job Corps well. Well American Peace Corps are quite different like those are public service kind of deals. And core was I think originally, it was like the Civilian Conservation Corps was founded. Around or Asher roadworks. Yeah during Lena maybe during the depression. Give people, sort of. Jobs. I believe? That's the one that was like, Hey, we'll give jobs. Helping to build America's infrastructure so you can have a government job during these tough times. Probably connected to that in some way because it is like a quote unquote job training program although when I was very twenty ten, it was just A. I don't know like a pipeline to recruit people into the military essentially. League. Each center has been one program that actually leads to or could lead potentially to like a fruitful career in that field and the rest of the programs are bit of a joke. But they're like if you enlist in the military, then it'll. You'll get in there with a higher starting salary and a higher rank and you unruly use. If you have a criminal record, we'll that clean for you. Wink wink. So you're studying job corn. How does this lead to you living in event with a Hobo? So it just gotten out of job corps len him or I had recently out of Job Corum. And it was a bit. Like of a traumatic experience so it was kind of. Isolated and didn't really have any friends and I was. Stuck like a home living with my family. Well. My abusive father. and they're just hit just separated from my mom you just say to get divorced. and. I don't know we just. Connected and then we had a good connection at first and. When I met him and his community like. His friend asked me like. Just random. Like asked me about my relationship with my parents and it's like my mom's sucks she kicked me out although Blah like she was terrible and abusive like Oh wait people can talk about these things. Just felt the sense of. Kinship West This is a very. I would say. And I love all my people. In this region of the world I've traveled extensively to this region million shows.

Now that the baseball season is in its waning days, I'M GONNA use this I've used many baseball puzzles in the past I guess I'm a baseball fan. There are two rookie players who started the season on opening day and and made a wager as to which one would have the best batting average the end of the season.

Gem felt her heart swell with hope as she looked up. At the circle of late afternoon Sky Guinea pig stopped shifting his snout and whiskers were still as if he were frozen in thought in contrast the animals and the whole erupted with anxiety hurt for bigfoot rapes right. What if Selfo there could definitely be meetings? Are you kidding me meetings? This is our only hope gems. I twitched as she stared them all down. The animals fell silent gazing upward with a strange mix of anticipation and dread finally Guinea pig spoil. Sorry it took me a minute to do the math math man. My Big Foot search love is at capacity. We've maxed out our space in the tree and the fire marshal. There will come after me if I add even one more animal also side notes. We are extremely close to finding bigfoot. I do love your enthusiasm for long meetings. Committees and memo's membership is closed so by with that Guinea pig disappeared gem was paralyzed staring upwards. As her brain tried to catch up to what had just happened there was already a bigfoot foot. Search Club membership was closed. None of it made any sense. How many animals had Guinea pig trapped down here but all of those thoughts fell away as fear settled in gem was never getting out never quitting. Her Job. Never finding a way to lead a useful life.

Night fell and the whole took on a new shocking level of darkness and they never left the whole the end. Just kidding that would be cruel. And I wouldn't do that night. Fell and the whole took on a new alarming level of darkness. The Moon was tucked behind a cloud. All was quiet then. They heard something. What was that maybe Guinea pig coming back for us. Doubtful Gem lifted her head. She figured the sound was simply a nighttime creature on its way to a Flamengo dance show or a candle making class already too far away to hear their calls but then the clouds shifted enough for glow of moonlight to fall over the whole. The animals gasped as they looked up and saw a rope. It dropped down in a flash AND THE END OF IT HIT. The ground is soft. Thud Gem leapt to her feet and dash to the rope sniffing at wildly. It's not Guinea pig. It's something else. The animals huddled around the probe and stared upward. There was a tall shadowy figures back lit by the moon at the edge of the whole it was completely still and seemed to be waiting for them to do something. Gem Felt Relief. Wash over her. She nudged the animals forward and one by one grabbed. Hold of the rope. Gem waited until they were all secure then. She grabbed onto it herself and the hulking creature above began to raise the road. In seconds gems head emerged from the whole and she scrambled onto solid ground. She looked up just in time to see the creature even bigger than she'd imagined. Loping away on two feet. Jim Suddenly remembered her Satchel with her camera inside. She dashed around blindly finally finding it in the grass. She paused at the closure knows. Did Open lifted her camera and clicked. The flash momentarily blinded her. When she regained her sight in the darkness. The creature was gone. Did you get a photo was that? Do you think it was no gem pod at her camera until the photo of the creature appeared. There was in the middle of the frame. It's back facing them. A large running by peel blur gem turned off the camera and shoved it.

We are getting awfully and I mean awfully close to finding bigfoot beers come in different forms. This story began with some pretty straightforward fears being alone WORMS SNAKES. But what about gems biggest fear hers was a little more complex. Jam wanted to lead a useful life and suddenly she was afraid she never have the chance. Sometimes the thought of never confronting that fear of yours of never be able to hike a mountain or go in a flight somewhere incredible or to try that new food. Sometimes the thought of not doing something becomes scarier than the thought of doing it. That's what happened to me with my writing. I had to ask myself. Could I really accept never sharing my writing with people? Would I be satisfied with that life in moments like that? You realize that never doing the thing that scares you is something. You just cannot accept. That's when you act move forward in you expose yourself to challenges and sometimes when you do that magical things happen so I encourage all of you to separate those straightforward fears. You know your basic theories of rainbows you know. That's a common one or rain coats. That's not unusual separate those from the fears that might not be serving you like the fear of trying something new or if you're just being yourself or the fear of showing someone something that you need because those kinds of fears might be holding you back from something really.

"While Conrad Truman Sat in a Utah State prison marking time. His sister collapsed searched endlessly for ways to get him out. was there a time when you or anybody else in your family. Emily thought maybe we don't know as well as we thought we do know he couldn't have gilder not possible so much about Conrad Camera. Truman's trial bothered his sister. Colette but one detail in particular kept gnawing at her it had to do with the diagrams used by the state Depicting the area where Heidi's body was found. I remember thinking. Well that's strange. That's that can be right. post-verdict post-verdict collect shared her concerns with Conrad's new attorneys mark. MOFFATT an anti Farah. The defense team decided to visit the Truman home to see for themselves. If the state's diagrams were accurate we later made that same trip with Moffett. who showed us what they discovered avert? This is the area in question and it's pretty small it is it's really sma- we immediately started measuring. We knew right away that there was a big big problem with their their diagrams. Measurements the problem. All those measurements were off instead of a hundred and thirty nine inches. Somebody took the figure one three nine and interpret it to be thirteen point. Nine feet thirty three inches became three point three feet and on and on and on according to Moffett those flawed measurements. which were used in court made the house appear much bigger than it was? They used boost the theme of distance to argue that Mr Truman was lying about where he said his wife was when he heard what turned out to be the fatal shot at trial. The prosecution argued to believe Conrad. You'd have to believe hiding shot herself in the bathroom and then walk walk twelve feet before falling to the floor and according to the medical examiner that was impossible. He testified Heidi's head wound was so severe that she could have at most walked. A stepper to this issue of distance. Was this big issue. But for Intel Pharaoh just seeing the house and how small it was was was proof enough that the prosecution's argument didn't hold up when you walk in the House. There's no way that there's even twelve feet there. We'll it's more according according to the defense team. Conrad never told the police. Heidi shot herself in the bathroom instead. He told them he had no idea where she wants when when he heard the shot told me Your theory of what happened here we believe. Heidi Truman shot herself in this area. And we believe that she carell right in the area directly in front of me on the ground and that's the very area where she was found. When law enforcement entered the home that night which they also said was completely consistent with the emmys testimony that Heidi would have fallen after only a step or two she would have gone to the ground immediately and your argument limit is she did fall down and she fell right about here yes and she went? That's exactly what arguments according to them off at. This was not a simple mistake. Is this the case of a small town. Police Department making some incorrect measurements adding up some figures wrong. I don't believe so I believe that they willfully lied to secure a conviction against Conrad Truman. And for these attorneys there were more issues with the state's case one had to do with gunshot residue tests. The defense learned police swamp both Heidi and comrades hands. But those swabs were never sent to the lab when you have gunshot residue that was never tested and those things matter. The defense team decided to test. Those swabs themselves Conrad's hands were negative for resident but there was a question as to whether Conrad washed his hands before they were tested so those results were meaningless. That's probably why they they didn't test in the first place as for Heidi Swabs. There was no residue on her left hand but there was on her right hand then significantly. Heidi Eddie was right handed. When you have gunshot residue in a location and in a quantity that is absolutely consistent with her firing a semiautomatic semiautomatic weapon? One of the possibilities. is she fired a gun. You can't discount the deeper mafia and Taliaferro got into the case the more it seemed to them. Heidi's fatal wound was self inflicted. They believe the head wound. A contact wound ruled out. Homicide a contact gunshot wounds to the right temple are the most common site of self inflicted gunshot wounds that there are Mafia and Taliaferro decided to take their findings to the emmy hoping to sway his ruling on the manner of death once again just as police did prior to Conrad's arrest we we gave him a bunch of information then he on his own with his investigators went to the home to look at it in the result was just what they'd ask for. Heidi Truman's manner of death wants undetermined. Then homicide was now officially once again undetermined. It was manna from forensic heaven now. Often medical examiner's change their findings and then changing back. I've never had a case where this has happened. Ever it took another year but Conrad Truman's conviction was overturned and he was granted a new trial. I never thought that was even a possibility for the medical to change. I never would have thought that things like I can't get my hopes up about yes. Yeah yeah that's exactly how I felt. I was beyond happy. We were just absolutely over the moon. Fear Heidi's family it was is just the opposite. We couldn't believe it was over. We thought it was over. We thought this was settled. That was a hard hard hard moment. We hated it. We just thought so. What are they going to come up with this time and we know that's what you're thinking to coming got a new trial? A new jury a different verdict. There was enough there there beyond a reasonable doubt. Why would things work out if it didn't work out the first time?.

"Aw just more than two years after his wife Heidi's Deaf Conrad. Truman stood convicted of her murder. He was looking down barrel of a life sentence when he returned to a Utah courtroom to learn his punishment. This is the moment where some convicted killers ask for mercy because of their difficult lives or tell the court they've been misunderstood and sometimes of course they don't speak at all but not Conrad through please. I can't say sorry I understood. Speaking out would make it way worse but I was like Doc. I don't know I was like to hell with this. I need to speak my mind. These approve of justice. The judge had heard that before the sentence he imposed sixteen years to life crushing for Conrad and his family sitting behind him including sister. Colette he want to believe that. the things. Turn out the way that they're supposed to and that's just not always the case imprison Conrad did. What many many do he retraced the steps that led him there and he thought a lot about the night? Heidi died as Conrad's saw it. The police rushed to judgment began began precisely when officers. I rushed through his front door. Is this felt like this guy's drinking. There's fire arms in the House so he must've shot her will. Why couldn't it be exactly that simple? This wouldn't be the first time that mixing alcohol an argument and a handgun leads straight to a prison sentence. Conrad told us what he told police. It isn't that simple. Sure he hide he had been drinking and yes yes they had been arguing. Buddy said neither was an explanation for what happened could have upset her with some of the things. I've said you know or the way I acted with not being attentive. You know tour. I know of side do that sometimes when I drink. I don't pay a lot of attention. You know those still doesn't seem the grounds for a gigantic fight. No it got to the point where I think she was. I upset her. I was really. I just know she went to go. Take a bath. which is what she did when she was all irritative? Yes comrade also shared with us how he picked the bathroom lock not he said to confront in Heidi but just to apologize she just said get out and I was like okay and so I just let her be as for comrades behavior after police arrived at his door. He said he had good reason for acting that way. I was trying to say my wife. I does that make sense. It was just. I just wanted her to live. I get how frantic you must have been. I'm not sure I understand the threatening part of that and I think that's one of the things that ended up getting you in trouble could be i. It was like how do I explain this to you guys like get her help. And when you can't explain that to someone I just started. I started making threats. Well if that's true then why and how did Heidi wind up with a bullet in her head. I think police found it hard to believe that you could be right there with her in a very small area and she shot. And you don't know what happen. Yeah maybe in their heads in mine I was just I was confused. Could this be an accident what I say to that is. I didn't see I don't know what happened. That's how he felt just hours after the shooting but as the months passed Conrad came to the conclusion Piney may have taken her own life life. His wife he said wasn't as tough as she appeared wishes. Sad person was you're depressed person When she drank a little bit you can Komo? It wasn't every time but it did Heidi's friends Sandy. Sanchez also saw another side to Heidi. That strong funny person also had some things inside that were very painful. According to sandy those things had to do with Heidi's upbringing most significantly. Heidi grew up not knowing the identity of her father. That really bothered her. You know she. She did not know her dad and she had always wanted that it. Bugger tremendously enough. To take her own life ever attempted suicide before never to my knowledge she never talked about it. No it's very hard to believe that what was going on. Heidi's live at the time. What seemed like a pretty happy marriage to you? She's going to spur the moment decide to commit suicide like that is. That's a tough question it's like. How do you really know when someone's is going to do that? You know as he lived his life behind bars. Conrad continue to speculate. He also tried to stay hopeful. I was just like this is going to workout workout has to because I didn't I didn't do this. Conrad's family never gave up on it. So they scrape together the money to hire Conrad on ransom. New Attorneys Magnani looked into the case. to them. It was immediately apparent that there were a lot of problems. Mark Moffatt Autho an antenna pharaoh. Were those attorneys. One of the first things they did was visit. What had become the scene of the crime we went to the house and we walked walked in and we think a ha- within moments of being in that home? We knew immediately that there was a huge problem. Not Not a problem for them. More for the people who had put Conrad Truman away coming up. He's an innocent man in jail.

"As the sun inched above of. Utah's Wasatch Mountains. Questions swirled at their base. How did Heidi Truman wind up on her kitchen floor shot in the head for sure police were wondering about her husband after all? Conrad Truman was in the house when Heidi was shot and there was no evidence evidence of an intruder. I felt like they thought I did something soon. After he arrived at the scene Sergeant Bill Crook did begin to have his suspicions more more talented. Conrad back off the paramedics here back off and he wouldn't be was what moving around paramedics for me Sir. There were other scenarios that needed to be explored like accident and suicide. That's where detective Tom Wallace came in. There had been a number of theories. We obviously. So you're GONNA exhaust them. That's that's going to happen. The medical examiner didn't make Wallace's job any easier. His preliminary finding Hainanese nineties manner of death could not be determined. So Wallace tackled each theory. One by one accident seemed hard to believe thanks to comrade. Heidi had firearms experience. Can you think of any way it could have been. An excellent wouldn't have been so careless. So what about suicide. She's completely naked. We don't see a lot of women that commit suicide naked. That's not common. Did you find anybody that Heidi had spoken to about out suicide or about being depressed now. Neither Heidi's mother Janet nor her sister autumn could imagine Heidi even thinking about taking her own life. Heidi would never do that. In fact Heidi was against that. She had a friend who committed suicide and she thought it was selfish and in her words dumb ever ever tell you she was depressed. No ever act depressed now she was probably one of my happiest those upbeat kids. That lifts lift Wallace with homicide. And it put comrade back. In the police Crossair's Wallace decided to speak to the officers. First on the scene about their experience with Conrad everyone felt. His behavior was odd. He's yelling by it's a violent yowling is like if you don't save her. I'm going to kill you. Cook found those threats so alarming he took out his food to record them. Your guys it could just be the way. This guy reacts to trauma but I'm telling you it was a red flag at that time also a red flag. Conrad was drunk. He admitted he and Heidi had been drinking earlier. That that night I could see in his eyes. The redness red flag number three Conrad told Crook he and Heidi had been arguing a minor dust up he said Ed no big deal but enough for Heidi to draw bath and ask to be left alone. She went and locked herself in the bathroom. And then he details how he picked the the lock and one in the bathroom and then she kicked him out to me. That's another it's just. More proof of there was an argument. A bigger argument as for the location of the gun itself. That too was suspicious. That guns how far from Heidi I would say eight feet ten feet. Maybe it's it's far Arnav away that I it wasn't a normal like if she shoots herself and falls to the ground sang later that morning. Police asked Conrad to come to the station for more questioning her family. Emily thought otherwise after finally learning from police the details of how Heidi dot the minute I heard how she died. I knew he did. It found like he had a temper and he was very intoxicated and he did something that perhaps he didn't plan I just knew he did. It took Wallis next poured over Conrad statements to police about what happened that night as Wallace sought. Conrad that story went like this. Conrad was in the kitchen. Heidi was in the bathroom at some point. Conrad heard a pop and when he turned he saw Heidi standing thank somewhere between the kitchen and the bathroom hallway bleeding and he either runs over catches her she falls down Wallace then went back to the Truman home. Making detailed measurements of the kitchen and surrounding rooms. You wanted to see if comrades story checked out his conclusion it did not her bodies in the top of the staircase. It doesn't add up that she would have traveled a distance that he sang. She would have gone and then then fallen at that location. It was hard for Wallace to believe. Heidi could've travelled from the bathroom to the top of the stairs. After sustaining such a severe head wound. She would've fallen immediately to the ground now. Wallace shared his findings with Assistant District Attorney. Craig Johnson Johnson agreed. Everything pointed to Conrad. Why why would want to kill his wife under the circumstances Say the motive was just based on this Kita passion argument that they were having alcohol. Fight and guns. That's where we got murder at the same time. Johnson was still reluctant to press charges. Remember the state's own medical examiner couldn't didn't say whether Heidi's death was a homicide and Johnson knew that would be a huge hurdle in court based on my experience in courts curry's a medical examiner carries a lot of weight so Johnson and Wallace show the Emmy a ninety six page powerpoint presentation of all their evidence including those measurements hoping something would sway him. The presentation worked the medical examiner under changed his ruling aside. It sounds like one of the things that got the medical examiner to move from an inconclusive. Homicide was the measurements of the crime. Scene suggested the that her body was too far from where Mr Truman said he'd been shot exactly and so after a ten month investigation the Orem PD and the DA's office arrested comrade. Truman and charged it with his wife's murder. My mom called me and I fell to the ground crying and so happy that he was finally behind bars going into trial. Would you think I thought we had a strong circumstantial case at trial. The prosecution argued a domestic violence ending in homicide. The defense self inflicted gunshot wound the jury sided with the state. Conrad Truman was convicted of Heidi's murder. It was like finally got finally got as far as you knew that was that was it. Did you think that was it. I did but if you think that was it will. Then you haven't been watching enough dateline coming up Heidi's heartbreak. She did not know her dad and she had always wanted that they're really bothered her and Conrad. Truman's hope this is gonNA work out. It has to because I didn't I didn't do this..

"Something's wrong if the Truman House show the nine one one call came into the Orem Utah Police Department at about eleven pm that September night right back in two thousand twelve. We got a call of a gunshot wound or some sort of injury Sergent Bill Crook went to the Truman home. So we all kind of rushed to our cars and and Headed that direction with lights and sirens on the other end of the phone was comrade kneeling on his kitchen floor covered in blood and consumed by panic. It was devastating. It was a nightmare. You can't even explain it with one hand. He held the phone with the other. He's bleeding wife. It was so hard. When is your loved one like that? I had no. I did the best I could try to keep her breathing by by then. Conrad said he realized Heidi had been shot in the head. When you went to Heidi did you see a gun? Now he remembered the pop he had heard and wondered if a stray bullet might come through the bathroom window and hit Heidi. I was trying to think of the noise. And how wasn't very loud and and you know maybe someone could have Shot something at the House. It seemed far fetched but he said neighborhood. Vandals had recently been shooting putting the back of his house with people's utterly confused. Within minutes. Sergeant Crook arrived comrade by now had moved to the doorway of his is home to waive crook down had blood on his hands and he was screaming. And Shrieking Conrad led the sergeant through the front door up the stairs and then it was seen straight from a horror movie I could see Heidi land their shoes naked. Blood everywhere is right at the top of the stairs this horrific seen. What's Conrad Doing? Well he screaming and yelling and as these police photos make clear covered in blood on asking. Why Conrad what's going on on? What happened here? He said she was in the bathroom on just. I don't know what happened. Everything was just different answers. Different theories different little things right away crook went to check one of those theories. A stray bullet perhaps coming through the bathroom window. The windows closed. There's no bullet hole nothing to indicate that anybody fire shots about Sarawak return to the kitchen. And that's when he discovered a gun lying on the kitchen floor. Would you think it happened. Honestly I didn't know was this. It's an accident and attempted suicide or something far more sinister at least for now those answers would have to wait. Heidi was clinging bringing to life. My focus at that time was honestly. It was to help hide. Paramedics took Hoti to a nearby hospital. Conrad followed in a police. This cruiser a dash cam recorded the absolute desperation in his voice. It is so crazy about an hour. After Conrad Arrived Hospital staff delivered the devastating news. It's Heidi Wagner. Truman could not be saved pain. It was misery it was why how in a neighboring town Heidi's mother Janet would soon agonize over those very same questions. It was after midnight when two police officers came to her door. What must be like the most horrendous thing ever and I would never want anybody to have to feel that and that pain that agony of knowing that your daughter for whatever reason is dead as gone? The officers wouldn't give Janet any details only where her daughter had been taken. I'm driving down to the hospital and I make a comment to my daughter. I go you know Oughta as hard as it is that we lost Heidi Eighty. We're going to have to be supporting Conrad because he must be overwhelmed with Grief Conrad sister. Colette was thinking the same thing she raced to the hospital. What kind of conditions your brother? Hey was just a total wreck just absolutely hysterical. Didn't know how it could have happened and no one did. But back at the Truman home sergeant crew had started analyzing the evidence and was already developing a theory. I thought Oh man Dan. There's something going on here feeling. I got a feeling yes. It wasn't just. Everybody was kind of looking around like this. There's something wrong here. We need a detective coming coming up.

"I think I was just in shock to find now that she's gone and the causes. I got shot wound You just wonder how did this happen. It seems very surreal. A quiet night hit home shattered by a gunshot arguably a young wife dying on the floor. She wasn't talking it all on the asking him. I Conrad what happened here. I was utterly confused so many different stories about what might have have happened. He said many things that maybe someone could have shot something at the house. At one point he said that eighty percents Suicide police had their Own Theory I thought Oh man. There's something going on here. We don't see a lot of women that commit suicide naked Conrad Stories. We're not adding up but something else wasn't adding up. Not even a key piece of evidence we went to the house and we walk in and we think a ha- would a mistaken measurement send innocent man to prison or free a guilty one. We thought it was over. We thought this was settled. One suspect so many stories stories only one of them could be true. Something's GonNa break and when it does the truth be known. I'm Lester Holt and this is dateline. Here's Josh Markowitz. With as night fell. They seem so incongruous. The Soaring Majesty Adjuster of Utah's Wasatch Mountains and the story of a beautiful woman struck down in her youth. It was a lot of things tragic crushing stomach but was it an accident or a suicide or or a murder police felt they knew but as most cops will tell you both the evidence and the jury have their own stories to tell and the answer is not always so clear. Certainly that is true for this story and quite possibly for the woman at its heart. Her name Heidi win as the baby. She was favored loved her. She could do no wrong on them was one of Heidi's four sisters just special. You know. She'd walk into the room and and she she's ready for that good time. Heidi grew up with with no fewer than seven older siblings growing up. She was certain unloving girl. She was rather shy thou so. Heidi seemed like an appropriate tame. Heidi's MOM Janet the family we get together and we were Kinda loud and boisterous sometimes and she kinda got embarrassed easily cheat Hyder phase as Heidi got older. She was still cute and bubbly but make no mistake. Heidi was no pushover. So it's kind of intimidating actually for being so small you wouldn't think so at just twenty. Heidi started working in the not entirely feminine gas and chemical industry just outside Salt Lake City. Sandy Sanchez was one of Heidi's co workers. We worked with hazardous chemicals and gases crazy things. So you wouldn't expect a couple of girls to want to do. Heidi seem to thrive in a workplace. That fever hardhats over heels was dangerous. If you didn't follow the rules in fact the quote from Heidi everything is dangerous. Just what will kill you the quickest to see the Heidi became more than just a CO worker. I considered her my best best friend. She was a person that you never stab you in the back. She was a person that you would always have your back in person. She could be both sweet and salty and that caught the attention of one of her colleagues twenty five year old comrade trim. I noticed her. I in the hallway. Would you thought she was cute. And and I noticed her heart hat and they have a little personality or stickers. You know and her said it's all about me deal with it and I was kinda thinking this girl's kind of kind of the Feisty Girl Conrad as Heidi out on a date. I'm not that type usually. Don't get super serious off about but it was. It was almost like we are inseparable after that. That was the first. Yeah yeah this. Tough girl even even shared Conrad's interest in guns. We will go to the range out of town and schouten the hills. How do you know how to handle a handgun? Yes one year into their courtship worship. Conrad decided to pop the question in True Utah Form. He chose a mountain on which to do it. She have any idea it was coming now so so I got on one knee and I asked her and I started boll and and she just said yes right off the Bat Conrad's Sister Colette. Doll couldn't believe it on her little brother. I introduced Heidi to the family. I was actually really sort of surprised when I first met her. Like how did he land. That girl named just seemed to be such a great match. You saw love chemistry there. Oh it was almost awkward. They were definitely an enviable couple. Another another year later came the wedding. It was amazing we went up on a lift the chair lift. And then all of the guests left down the slide so it was just so oh them they said their vows and he's doing this champion posed like he was just everything was right with the world. Enviable couple was just starting out with a future as bright as their smiles until that is a Sunday evening in September a two thousand twelve three years after the Truman's were married. Tell me about that day. That day was like just like any other day as night fell. Heidi decided yeah. I did take a bath. Conrad said he went to the kitchen to get something to eat as he fixed himself a sandwich. He said he heard a noise coming from the direction of the bathroom. It was like a New Year's poppers or the Halloween poppers where you can pull strings or you can pull one and confetti and stuff comes out that's when Conrad on read said. He turned and saw Heidi standing there in the hallway naked. She wasn't talking. She wasn't talking at all. She was coughing. She it was heaving and she was believing she was bleeding out of her mouth and her nose. I needed to call nine. One one immediately city is your emergency on an unimaginably shocking scene.

"This is an ABC podcast on Monday. A police officer in Hong Kong shot an unarmed twenty one year old protester with live communication at point blank range. The entire thing was caught on video tape later later that day video emerged of a middle aged man being doused in petrol and set alight after arguing with protesters. These videos show a snapshot of how both police and protesters seem to be upping the ante in this ongoing face off. I'm really jeans and I'm Christine Gate and today on the signal I know. There's been a significant escalation intention violence in Hong Kong this week but the student protest remain resolute. So what's China's new tactic and bringing all of this to an end so this reason spike in violence in Hong Kong started on Friday after a twenty two year. Old Uni student died. Yeah he fell from a copper roof roof after running away from police the previous Sunday and it's being called the first official death of a protester inactions linked to police. The the desert of the student surnamed her name Chow did affect people of course because jess does create a different dynamic. And we've heard in public calls for quote Unquote Revenge Bench Gordon. Chang is an Asia analyst and author of the coming collapse of China clearly. The four then protesters Really were were looking to fight the police on because there have been allegations that three protesters on August twenty first were beaten to death in the prince. Edward Mass Transit Railway Station and since that time protesters have Just taking a very different attitude towards the police. The police police also have been extremely brutal and so this has become a fight on both sides and the descendant of violence has been marked specially especially since the end of August but of course with the what is called the the first death of a protester. an action linked to the police Clearly the things got out of control. We don't know if that student was actually a protester But he was running away from tear gas and so therefore His causes taken up by Everyone although we feel sad we need to to continue our movement so We need to gather together and here and voice our something to the police foles so this past weekend has been one of disturbances across the territory especially on Monday. A Hong Kong traffic policeman shot at unarmed student of purchaser in the torso protester dressed in black like many of the protesters are faceless covered. He's approaching a Hong Kong police officer in a wide open area The protests are didn't have anything thing in his hands Obviously was unarmed. Did Not pose a risk to threat to the safety of the officer. Officer wasn't a wide open. Area could easily easily a retreat. It but didn't took out a gun shot the protester asbury close range and clearly this was an unjustified on justified use of force and that shooting isn't the only extreme thing that happened on Monday also there was an argument between People in Hong and One of the people who is expressing pro-beijing statements was doused with some sort of liquid and set on fire. He also was admitted to hospital in critical condition and remains that way with Burns on twenty eight percent body the discovery well have been staged and indeed We don't even know. It's not entirely beyond China's communist us to of Sacrificed one of their own. Perhaps without his knowledge that this was going to happen. I'm not saying that's what occurred. But that's a possibility and until we know more about the perpetrator I. I don't think we can say that. This has been a Hong Kong protestor who did this so no one's apprehended over that attack yet and there's also reports of protesters facing off with police at universities throwing petrol bombs and police yes using tear gas and pepper spray and aiming the guns at people and then this is footage of a police officer on a motorbike driving into a crowd of protesters several times ramming something a little before taking away so later on Monday. Hong Kong's late Carrie Lam gave this press conference in which she he condemned the protesters and code them the enemy of the people. Finally I want to appeal to everyone. In Hong Kong to stay calm the frame from taking part in any unlawful activities. This is not language that Hong Kong leaders would use. This is a language that the Communist Party uses and matter of fact they've used it Routinely in recent years And of course this goes back to the era of Mao Zedong. The founder of the People's Republic of China and was widely heard during the cultural revolution is what started in the mid nineteen sixties. The thing here is that it. Carrie Lam is using chinese-language and this comes after. She had two crucial meetings at the beginning of this month she had meeting on November fourth. Where see Japan the Chinese ruler in Shanghai and she also had a meeting day or two later with the Hong Long? Jiang who is the member of the Politburo Standing Committee the Portfolio for Hong Kong. So this is Essentially Carrie Lam getting her orders and given the even more aggressive tactics of the police since those two meetings we can assume that she got her her orders from the top of the Chinese leadership to move aggressively against a Hong Kong people. Essentially Beijing is is forcing goosing. Carrie Lam to take a a hotline. I think so because this doesn't seem like the Carrie Lam who was elected chief executive This his mirrors Beijing's position on this and ask as we've seen the events last two or three days we've also heard word State media in China step up their attacks on protesters so this does seem to be coordinated right. So according Gordon Carrie Lam has go to roads from Beijing and she's following through. Yeah and Gordon thinks that part of that plan involves a kind of unofficial ray structure of the Hong Kong Police. There are a number of videos which show that People from the mainland are now operating on the streets of Hong Kong in the uniform informed of the Hong Kong Police in I think one of the more telling videos. There is a Hong Kong riot. Policemen who is obviously from Hong Kong because he's speaking colloquial colloquial Cantonese. Then he turns around on to a couple of other riot officers and starts talking to them in Mandarin. Remember Hong Kong cantonese-speaking city and The first Hong Kong riot officer speech calls them comrade now to to Hong Kong. Policemen would not use that term when addressing each other there's other videos Another one of them is Is a line of Hong Kong policeman who who absolutely refuse to show their Hong Kong tleyss identity cards and who apparently don't Speak Candies Because uh there's a A PRO democracy figure. I think he's in the council. I forget Talking to and they just impassive as if they don't understand understand so there is growing evidence that There are either Hong Kong a plea Chinese troops or Chinese police who are now wearing con-conflict doc police uniforms and the one thing that that has always struck me is that once we start to see these videos and it coincided sided with a breakdown in discipline in Hong Kong police if we go back to year two years ago. The Hong Kong police were recognized as the most professional professional and disciplined force in of its kind in Asia and now they've just completely broke ranks. There's very little discipline on. They're acting savagely. This is not the Hong Kong police force of a year ago. And we've got to ask. Why has this occurred? And especially since and this Change in behavior does coincide with these videos of the obviously Chinese personnel in the Hong Kong. Police we can guess that may be. This is very much what Beijing okay. So if he's right that's interesting and pretty crofty tactic to infiltrate the Hong Kong Police. Gordon reckons it shows China's realizing it needs to be more and more covert the in dealing with Hong Kong. This is not one thousand nine hundred nine Tenement Square. Where you had these big broad boulevards low buildings on each side? Chinese armor armor tanks and armored personnel carriers just swept through from the Western approaches of Beijing into Tenement Square. And they killed almost it will. Hong Kong is very different. It's defenders territory. Scott narrow streets and alleys got lot of tall buildings. Every apartment building is a fort for the hostels which means that these kids can go to do these apartment buildings third or fourth floor ring down explosives or petrol bombs on concentration of Chinese troops and then just completely disappear and I don't think Beijing has has an answer Militarily for that and certainly politically this would be extremely disadvantageous. China because countries would start to impose sanctions. Asians don't want an open display of raw Chinese power on Hong Kong streets which I think would enrage many people across Hong Kong society.
