"So now we got this series against the Orioles coming up in The Bronx guys. What else do you want me to say? It's simply has to be a tweet, a tweet. It simply has to come on Twitter. Sorry. It has to be a sweep. They can not settle for anything. It's the rays lost again to the Red Sox, not entire. I don't know what's ideal for the Yankees now. You know, do you want the raise to keep losing and the Red Sox gaining ground? The Red Sox are a game and a half behind the Yankees now. It's just three in the lost column. And the rays are 6 and a half up on the Yankees for the division. So luckily the Yankees have this three game set against the Orioles that they truly have to take advantage of because the Red Sox next 9 games, oh, I'm sorry. Red Sox next 12 games come against the Indians, not bad, but not great, raise White Sox and Mariners, and those latter 6 are on the road. So ground to make up here for the Yankees who will have the Orioles, the Blue Jays and the mets in the mets, the one makeup game against the twins and then the Orioles again. So this is it, guys. You can really kick the Red Sox. You could really kick the Red Sox down by taking advantage of wins here and watching them lose some

"Before the break we heard teresa torres begin to take us on a bit of jedi training. But not the star wars variety. A more important kind three started helpless. Think about how we can do. A better job of incorporating justice equity diversity and inclusion into the customer discovery process just before the break we heard a pretty insightful quote from steve jobs the founder of apple. It's a reminder of the world we live in today especially the world attack. well it's a world that's been created by people that weren't necessarily any smarter than any of us and what that means is we can change that world that we live in we can make our own impact. Although his treats and notes that comes with some responsibility gets on austin do something about the inequities that we see. And theresa has some thoughts on how we can actually do this now. I recently read a book that actually really helped Formulate some of my thoughts around this. It's called design justice. One of the principals from this book is to design with and not for right so design with your customers designed with your constituents not for them. And i really love this because i think it's gets at the heart of continuous discovery. Right why are we continuously engaging with our customers because we wanna make sure that we're designing with them and not for now. I really want to emphasize how most of the tech industry works today. In fact you might have heard quotes often. People quote hinder. Henry ford says if i had asked customers what they wanted they would've said faster horse Steve jobs even said customers don't know what they want until we show it to them and so we have some hubris in the tech industry where we believe that we're the experts and that we can design four people. So here's what i want to clarify. We are experts in technology but our customers are experts in their own lives and their needs in their own pain points on their own desires. And so really what we wanna do we talk about designing with. Is we want to combine this expertise. Our expertise with technology their expertise with their own lives and their own needs and really co create solutions together in this co creation mindset is a little bit different from what a lot of us are used to in fact a lot of teams operate on a validation mindset. Validation might is when we say we're the experts we're gonna come up with a solution will design it. We'll prototype it when we're done will validate with our users. Did we get it right now. Look in discovery world. We do need to do validation research. We need to confirm that what we built is going to work but we also can work with our customers much earlier and try to move closer to this designing with mindset instead of a designing for mindset designing with instead of four this distinction right know our customers can't simply tell us what they want but it doesn't mean we ought to leave them out of the discovery process in fact we need them. We need their insights. They are the experts on themselves. Not us right so it'd be silly to ignore our customers altogether for sure for sure and hey customers are absolutely a part of the customer discovery process. That's a part of therese's work and here. She starts talking about that very process. And how the jed eye mindset can be integrated drought. That process really starts with outcome. So let's start there. So i teach outcome focused brand of product management. I believe that the negotiation of the outcome should be between the leader and the product trio. So what do i mean by the leader leader. Is your chief product officer your vice president of product. Your head of product and your product trio is the product manager the designer and the technology lead. Who are working together to figure out what to build the reason why there should be a two way. Negotiation is because the leader is going to communicate what the business needs so the business can be able to communicate in this moment in time. Here's what we need from. You and the team can communicate how far we can get now during this negotiation. I think there's a few things that we can be doing to start to bring in some of these jet. I principles the first is. We need to start by asking better questions. So the first question. We're setting outcome that we can ask for the outcome that were setting to be have to maximize that outcome or can we satisfy ice. So if you haven't heard this word satisfied to this idea of like is an option good enough and why is this important. When we're talking about outcomes so a lot of companies are hyper focused on growth. That's the business culture that we live in and we think about growth if you work at a. b. context. I'm guessing that your company is really focused on landing. Large enterprise clients. That's where the big money contracts are the biggest return on investment the challenges if all of us focus all of us in the bbb space focus on enterprise clients who's building software for the mom and pop businesses and if nobody's focusing on the mom and pop businesses. What impact does it have on our communities. Who's being left out right so. This is a question where we can start to think about if we maximize for enterprises are we gonna live in a world where the only places we have to shop our target and walmart or can we start to look at. We need businesses need to make money. And that's the reality. So can we start to look at. We definitely need to bring in those big money. Enterprise clients but can we also start to look at can we service our underrepresented folks whether that's small mom and pop businesses whether that's minority owned businesses whether that's women owned businesses and one of the ways to think about this because you're not going to change your business culture overnight. You're knocking remove that focus on large enterprises. Is you can start to think about counterweights. So a counterweight is you set your primary outcome. The outcome you're trying to drive you may not be able to change that. It's just going to be maximize large enterprise clients but can you counter it with a metric that helps you start to assess. Are we also serving the little guys are we also serving the underrepresented business owners and so we can use these two questions together to start to assess what impact are we. Having by focused hyper focusing on maximizing and outcome the outcome that we choose defines the scope of who are going to serve. So when you're choosing your outcome. I want you to think about. Who are we including. And who are we living leaving out now. No product concerned. Everybody ever prog manager knows this right when you try to serve everybody. We build a product barely. Works for anybody. So i'm not suggesting your product has to serve everybody equally well. What i'm suggesting is that you be intentional about who you're deciding to serve and who you're deciding to leave out so we don't end up with unintended consequences where we have products like senators. That don't work as well for people with darker shades skin right. That wasn't an intended consequence. That was because we weren't intentional about who we were trying to serve. And that's the thing we do need to be intentional about who were serving and that intention. It doesn't stop there at least it. Shouldn't we need to be intentional about the way that were interviewing our customers as well. Yeah and not just the actual interviews but how we're setting up those interviews. Who are involving in those interviews. I mean there's a lot to.

"h torres" Discussed on Stay Tuned with Preet
"I want to end the show this week. By reflecting on something that's pretty fundamental in that is our democracy what we can do to improve it and in particular. I'm talking about it and thinking about it. Because i participated in a panel last week that was organized by the brennan center for justice and protect democracy and the project on government oversight. And it got me thinking about various things. And i want to share some of the points made during that session. Some of you may know that. I co chaired a task force on democracy with former governor. Christie todd whitman. She was the former governor of new jersey former epa administrator in a lifelong long republican and we propose various things into reports to try to sort of codify some of the norms that have been trampled in recent years. And so on this panel governor whitman. And i were joined by bob. Our the former obama white house counsel in moderator haze brown from msnbc to talk about how we can go forward and make sure they're democracy functions better than it has. Are there things that need to be put into law as opposed to trusted the honor system which is how so many things have operated in the country to date and among the proposals that we have offered in some of the proposals that are sitting around in congress waiting to be passed. Are things like erecting. Better wall between doj prosecutors elected officials requiring people who aspire to be president or vice president of the united states to disclose their tax returns. Something did not happen with respect to one of the candidates last time around getting more teeth to ethics watchdogs. Starting to apply conflicts of interest rules and principles to the president of the united states. Also proposals to protect scientific integrity which has come under fire and has been a problem. Elucidated i think in crystallized most clearly because of the krahn virus pandemic but so one of the questions that arose in this panel and that arises otherwise is how do you convince people that these reforms are necessary. Obviously the democrats feel that they are because their view is that these norms were trampled by republican. President donald trump. But how do you persuade folks on both sides of the aisle to get some of these provisions passed. I guess there are two answers to that question and there were thinking about. And the i the answer. I most often give is sort of one of pragmatism. The people on both sides of the aisle have interested in making sure that the executive branch member up to and including the president doesn't trample norms. Visit happened now. We can happen again as i said. At the event there's no law of nature ideology or politics we're psychology that says that some of those norms that were trampled by donald trump will not be trampled by a counterpart of his in the democratic party or an independent party either at the state local or federal levels you know to the extent. That legislation takes bipartisan support in either chamber to get passed to the extent. That folks who wanna talk about these issues can make the point that this is not just about donald trump. This is not just about some particulars relating to that particular president. It's not even just about january six. It's about a degradation of politics and norms and the honor system that can be transgressed by anybody democratic or republican and it might seem farfetched to some people on the progressive side but to me. It's not that you could have somebody who decides to learn some lessons from donald trump about lying but obvious skating but attacking the press about challenging the results of an election. Nothing particularly ideological about any of that. And so you would think on the principle of what's good for the goose is good for the gander. Republicans also would want to employ and codify some of these safeguards in guardrails so that with donald trump did to. The country cannot be done by anyone in the future. I from time to time. Talked about the philosophy of john rawls who's talked about the principle of evaluating policies and the propriety and fairness policies. From behind what he calls the veil of ignorance. And if you presume that veil in this hypothetical and you don't know who's going to be in control for eight twelve sixteen years from now could be a democrat could be republican could be an independent. I think people have good faith and right mindedness would wanna make sure that you had those safeguards in place. It may be the case today. A lack of these rules advantages one side. But that won't necessarily be true in the future pragmatic field folks to say this can happen on the other side to so do your best to fix democracy while you have the opportunity today. But there's a more high-minded reason as well and that is there's something about the institution of the presidency that deserves to be saved and not talked about in the partisan way that i just discussed it. Barbaro was asked the question. How would you suggest to. Joe biden that he should adopt some of these reforms. And it's an interesting question because presidents like power presence of both parties and proposals to limit power limit. Accountability are not things that generally executive branch officials embrace and love. And bob our says that the president has to understand. I think this president does that. He is himself not the office of the presidency. And that in some sense he holds it as a custodian for presidents to come so. It's not all about him. It's about the future as well. And bob's response got me to thinking about not just the pragmatic arguments in favor of these reforms and shoring up our democracy but also the moral imperative to do so. Because there's been something missing in a lot of discussion and debate in last number of years. At least to my i in my ear. We always ask. Is it good for the party..

"Maybe things have devolved even further from the time that i was working in the senate which is now a number of years ago when you come across folks who you've just identified who you find odious that's your word or when you come across people who may find that. Have that view about you because of what you believe to shake each other's hands. I mean you haven't been there long time. Do you walk the other way. do you smile what. What's the social atmosphere like particularly in the wake of january. sixth. I tend to be gracious person. I will create whoever reads me. Actually one of the first people to greet me during my freshman orientation was madison falls on even though his views are radically different from mine. We often have a mutually respectful conversations. Them exchange pleasantries and so some capable of showing decency toward members of the opposing party. But there are some members who who frost aligned for me. And mr gold in particular should be ashamed of himself for openly. Affiliating with a white nationalist. So i want to go to some of the issues. That are very important in the country. Very important to you. I know we've touched on on one of them already. And that's the issue poverty. And i want to talk about this. A little bit from the pragmatic progressive standpoint. Which is where you seem to coming at this issue and other issues and and you mentioned in passing a few minutes ago the child tax credit. If if there's one thing that you thought would most remediate or mitigate poverty in the country would it be some version of that in a more robust version of that or something else in my judgment opponent. Progressive child tax credit is the most powerful tool that we have for radically reducing poverty in particular child poverty in the united states. No child poverty lost our.

"This question comes in an email from evelyn who writes. I hope you can comment on the hearing regarding the lawsuit in michigan. I listened to a good bit of it today. In my unqualified opinion. The complainant's legal team is using defense. Much like the president and his cronies us in the court of public opinion. It reminds me of the. Because i said so reason. My parents used to give when they didn't feel like arguing. So you call yourself unqualified to render an opinion but your opinion is pretty. Good here evelyn. Of course you're talking about the hearing that took place on monday of this week relating to a sanctions issue against sydney powell and lynnwood and some other of trump's election lawyers who brought a series of lawsuits around the country including in detroit in federal court over alleged voter fraud in those elections seeking to overturn those elections. As you know by now every single one of those suits say perhaps one depending on how you consider. It failed and failed. Miserably and lawyers for detroit are seeking sanctions against trump's election lawyers on the grounds that they didn't obey ethics rules in bringing those suits and so the preceding lasted a pretty long time. I think upwards of six hours. So congratulations on getting through a lot of it and the basic question that the district court judge judge linda parker ass was quote shouldn't attorney be sanctioned for his or her failure to withdraw allegations. The attorney came to know were untrue. Is that sanctionable behavior. The judge also sort of answered run questioned at one point in the hearing when she said quote. I don't think i've ever seen an affidavit. That makes so many leaps. This is really fantastical. So my question to council here is how could any of you as officers of the court. Present this affidavit. The judge also made the point that the lawsuit and the affidavits attached to the lawsuit should have been withdrawn. When electoral college confirmed biden's victory on december fourteenth of last year. The judge asked. Why do the plaintiffs not recognize this lawsuit as moot and dismiss it on that date and as you point out evelyn time after time after time the lawyers had no answer with the possible exception of lynnwood who said repeatedly and somewhat humorously to my ear that he had nothing to do with drafting the complaint. He said it again and again. I nothing do with drafting the complaint. I was involved with it in any way. Raises the question. Of course. why was his name on the complaint. he didn't ask for it to be withdrawn. There was a debate back and forth about whether or not lynnwood had given permission to use his name and then there was another discussion about whether or not lynnwood in some other proceeding in some other jurisdiction in some other court had boasted that he had been involved in the detroit litigation. All in all it was a bit of a circus and a bit of a mess. So i'll make a couple of quick comments. I think it's clear that the judge will impose some kind of sanction here. it could be a monetary sanction. it could be referral to bar authorities and the irony here is the donald trump got away with lying again again and again and public forums at rallies on television in print interviews and there was not much than anybody could do about it and his lawyers may actually face some penalty for engaging in that kind of lying or misrepresentation by omission. For doing those same things in court. We've already seen the rudy giuliani. Trump's one of trump's lawyers has had his bar license suspended in two different jurisdictions in here. You have lynnwood and sydney powell and others by the way the other interesting thing is some of the representations made by sydney powell and the other lawyers in the election cases were so outrageous and so far fetched that the trump team itself distance. Themselves from cindy powell. That's a red flag. If you ever saw one before but importantly i want to mention again a distinction the joyce vance and i talked about on the cafe insider podcast and that is it is one to make know creative farfetched legal arguments to try to get a lot of fit some claim that you have. Maybe it's a claim that's never been made before articulated in a particular way before that's probably not generally going to be sanctionable so claims it clearly seemed to go against settled law or statute or constitutional provisions. Although they be sort of out of left field generally speaking the consequence of that is you just lose your case on. The other hand was being focused on here is time after time. After time factual assertions were being made in affidavits and otherwise there were not just not backed up but as a judge points over and over again there was literally no vetting of claims it on their face should have been challenged by good faith lawyers in. That didn't happen here. By the way by the end of the hearing sydney powell who is not in good standing with this judge and this court double down on the submissions. That were made she said quote. We have practiced law with the highest standards. And then she says and this is kind of remarkable stroz. she doesn't know how to read the room quote. We would file these same complaints again. We welcome an opportunity to prove our case no has ever given us that opportunity and quote that seems to have been an error so the original crack lawyers did not do a great job in representing donald trump's campaign and the lawyers of the crack lawyers hired also did not do a great job in connection with this proceeding earlier this week and perhaps my favorite comment of all was a tweet posted by lawyer bradley. Moss who wrote quote all of the lawyers in the hashtag cracking hearing oh.

"Talked a little bit before. And i believe you told me that you were working as an engineer at this time. Was that like because that is a field that i mean. I'm all for more women in stem and and you know and that must have been from all the research i've done as a personal finance reporter whenever you did a list of top earning majors in college. It was always like computer engineering things like that. So you must have had a well paying job in a field that super competitive and you must be extraordinarily smart but you said that you hated your job right so can you talk about. What was it about your career that you weren't finding fulfilling and then how did you and when did you sort of pivot into what you're doing. Now yeah yes. So as an engineer in a latina. Like i think that the career experience has definitely served me. Well in the sense that like i'm so used to being manned s- planed that now when it happens in like the personal finance fear which yes. It absolutely does kind of doesn't bother me. I'm just like midge like what you like. We are the same. So i'm not even here to like i. I don't need your explanation. Sir thank you. And because that came so much from like mike corporate experience i was usually the youngest woman in the room i was usually the only woman of color and there was a lot of like that. Just you know that girl. That girl gets like the products and nobody else wants to work on. And just gets talked down to gets told that i'm aggressive when the men are quote unquote being assertive blah blah blah. So i think from that perspective. I'm grateful for the fact that it gave me a thick skin because right i don't take any shit from anybody at this point. I think my career has a lot to do with that.

"Something, , I was thinking about wall preparing to talk to you is about how everything and politics and our country right now is just trump obsessed. . Does it feel to you like we are paying less attention to congressional races like yours? ? Yes, and , no Donald Trump represents an existential threat to our planet and our democracy in our social contract. . So naturally, , he's going to be the focus of our politics, , but you know the two not mutually exclusive Donald Trump is a racist relic of the past. . And the new generation of leadership the rainbow wave that has swept United States represents the future. . You can think about both because when represents the past than the other represents the future and the next election is essentially a choice between the two. . Do we want to turn the clock back? Would ? we want to move forward with the terminology describing the Rainbow Wave? ? I get frustrated with that personally because I think the current congressional group has nine or ten out queer people when it comes like nine or ten to me doesn't make up a wave will by wave referring analytic congress immediate t buddha. . Judges the first openly LGBTQ, , Bible presidential candidate. . You're about to have the highest congress industry of the United States and you have nearly a thousand openly, , Algebra, , two candidates for public office. . At every level of government we've never seen a greater quantity or diverse to the LGBTQ representation among candidates running for public office, , and that's a sign of Paris and these city and state legislators like yourself. . Well, , hopefully feed into these more national roles as well. . Look I got my start as as a volunteer community board. . And then I became a volunteer in the city council. . So you have to start somewhere you growing up could not look at Congress and see someone like you somebody gay so an Afro Latino you also dropped out of college. . About your biography do not make the quote, unquote , typical politician and so i WanNa know did you know that there was a place for you in politics and if not when did that change I never thought as poor lgbtq kit of color from the Bronx that I will ever become a United States Congress <unk> I never had LGBTQ role models growing up by rope in public housing had no conception of a world beyond the immediate boundaries of my neighborhood. . The first time I met in openly lgbtq person a teacher. . Is the moment that inspired me to acknowledge my sexuality for the first time for the first seventeen years of my life I had no openly lgbtq role models in my life in the Bronx I led a sheltered life and so that was somebody you knew intimately teacher what about looking into like politics and saying L. politicians there. . There were no real role models for me I saw no one. . No I did not see myself in the people running for public office or holding public office. . There was certainly no elegantly lgbtq people of color at the congressional level that I know of and and so I felt largely unrepresented and you know my my story begins with the poverty in the Bronx spent almost my life poverty raised by a single mother way to raise three children on minimum wage. . which in the nineteen nineties was four dollars and twenty five cents an hour and I grew up in public housing in conditions of bold and mildew leaks lead without reliable. . He didn't have water in the winter in my life something of a metaphor grubbing a public housing development right across the street from trump golf course. . So as I saw the conditions in my own home, , get worse every day the government had invested more than one hundred million dollars to construct the golf in honor of Donald Trump and I remember wondering to myself at the time. . What is it say that our society is willing to invest more in a gated Gilded Golf Course Donald From Then in the homes of black and brown low income Americans, , and so that experience has been quality is what inspired me to become housing organizer. . And then eventually took the leap of faith and ran for public office was twenty four openly gay at no ties to the political machine no ties to the dynasties of Bronx politics but I wish young and energetic with the fighting spirit. . And I knocked on thousands of doors went into people's homes. . I heard their stories, , it was one voter who said to me in the forty years I've been living in the Bronx. . I've never had a candidate for public office knocked on my door. . was those kinds of interactions at led me to win my first race in two thousand thirteen I became the first openly Q. elected official from the Bronx at several years before then I was at the lowest point I had dropped out of college. . I was abusing substances struggling with depression or struggling with sexual identity crisis. . I had lost my best friend to inaugurate overdose. . They were moments when I even thought of taking my own life I felt as the world around me had collapsed. . And then seven years. . Later, I , became the youngest elected official in the largest city in America, , and now I'm about to become a United States congressman. . For. . The only home I've ever known the Bronx and so I often tell people, , my story is the story of the rocks. . It's a story of struggle, , but also one of overcoming. .

So I did not have the physical appearance of being raped but the autopsy revealed semen in her vagina and on her clothing.

They would soon be able to match it on November third two weeks before her murder a sixteen year old female identified in court records as Maria was on her way to work at the mall walking. She took her usual shortcut through an alley but this time she was grabbed from behind she immediately felt a knife against her throat and tried to get away but she was grabbed even tighter then. The assailant grabbed her hair and pulled her backwards in the alley. Her assailant began undressing her and Maria asked what he wanted. He replied. I want you. I want to mark your beautiful face.

The assailant pushed Maria but then punched her in the face. The Young Man Francisco Javier. Lopez had been in his truck in spotted Maria struggling with her attacker. At first he thought it was a couple having a disagreement but then Maria made eye contact with him and he realized she was in trouble. He set off the alarm on his truck and went towards the pair in the alley yelling at the man he saw Maria get punched in the face and then the assailant ran off. Francisco ran to help. The young woman called nine one one. It was only later that Maria realized her pager was missing. Maria soon picked a suspect out of a photo lineup. Saying she was one hundred percent certain it was her attacker. This man was Tommy Jesse Martinez on December Second Nineteen Ninety six two weeks after the murder of Sofia Torres. A young woman identified as Laura was getting off of work at her job in the mall as she walked through the mall's parking deck to get to our truck. She noticed a young male standing against wall. Once she was inside the truck she realized the mail was running after her. So Laura locked the truck just as he reached it he tried the handle then looks surprised that it was locked so he recovered and pointed to his wrist. As if to say what time is it. She told him she didn't know. And the young male ran off when she arrived home. She told her husband about the incident and he called the police. She picked a suspect out of a photographic lineup. Just a few days later Laura also picked a photo of Tommy Martinez with absolute certainty on December fourth. Nineteen ninety-six around nine PM. A young woman identified as Sabrina was also getting off of work at the mall. She called her mother to come get her and then sat outside on a bench. Waiting a young man walked over and sat down then put a knife in her side in order not to move or say anything and he wouldn't have to stop her. He tried to force her off the bench and leave with him but Sabrina refused. He suddenly told her. Get your hand off my knife and Sabrina Villa. She had grabbed the handle. The two stood struggling over the knife. Finally he said he would go if she would just give him back the knife but they continue to struggle. Sabrina began to scream and he finally let go of the knife and walked away but he turned back to smirk at Sabrina. She told him he wouldn't get away with it and then she carefully watched him walk away trying to memorize details to tell the police she ran to a restaurant that was closed for the evening and banged on the door but the woman refused to let her in although she called nine one one for her. The operator convinced the woman to allow Sabrina to enter so they could get details of what the suspect look like while on the phone with Sabrina. The nine one one operator released information about the suspect over the Radio Officer Jeff. Lopez responded and drove to the mall looking for Hispanic male wearing a black hoodie officer. Lopez quickly saw a male matching that description riding a bike down in nearby St. The suspect made eye contact with the officer and began peddling faster officer Lopez could not reach the suspect in his car so he called in his location and it was just a matter of minutes before the suspect was taken into custody by other Santamaria police officers when Lopez asked him where he was going. The suspect lied about it. He was escorted his brains location and she identified him without a doubt or second. Guess the suspect was Tommy Martinez. While in custody he heard one of the officers radio that he had the item used in his custody. And Tommy asked. Did you find my knife?

His voice the investigators then went in and talked to Tommy for a few minutes and then left the interview room to compare his voice to the voice on the nine. One one tape convinced. This was their suspect. They went back to the interview room to question him about the nine one one call. He denied he called nine one one but when he realized his probation officer knew it was his voice. He said he had gone to the park to meet Sofia to buy some crank from her. He said before he could. He saw Sophia being chased by two black women and beaten by them. He did not go into the park but kept walking and went home however he developed a conscience and went to a payphone to call nine one one in case she needed assistance he explained he did not identify himself on the nine one one call because he was high. He said she was being chased onto the baseball diamond. But investigators asked why he said she was near the Snack Bar. He hesitated before answering and then replied. He just wanted someone to get there fast to help her. The detectives explained to Tommy. That so feel was not a drug user and was a homeless person who would not be able to deal in methamphetamines. Tommy said he had met her earlier in the night at the Trade Amigos Bar.

He changed his story somewhat and added details to the beating of Sofia by the two chunky. Black women he said one was hitting her with her fist and the other was holding a baseball bat. Detectives argued with him that he could not have seen Sophia in the darkened park. They also told him they had matched. The knife used to attack Sabrina with knives found at his home.
