What Do Hurricane Categories Mean?
"Are hurricanes categorized and what do those categories really mean Daybreak and stuff is Christian Sager here when hurricane season arrives each year on June first phrases such as storm surge, wind speed, and I wal- suddenly become part of the summer lexicon in the United States. But probably, the most important words to know about a hurricane are those that describe its power and those include whether it's a category one or category five. The variance between the strengths of these two storms could mean the difference between life and death. Now, meteorologists rank hurricanes from one to five based on the Saffir Simpson scale. The scale is a yardstick that takes into account a hurricane's wind speed, storm surge, and air pressure, and the scale begins with a category one, the least powerful and dangerous. Hurricane, and then it moves towards its climax at category five. The most catastrophic as the storm pushes across the ocean it gathers speed and strength low air pressure forces, ocean water into a huge mound near the I, which could create a devastating storm surge when the wall of water reaches land, the more heat and moisture hurricane consumes the more powerful. The storm becomes that's where the Saffir Simpson scale comes in. The scale was created when Robert H Simpson was director of the National Hurricane Center in Nineteen sixty-nine during the time Hurricane Camille blew through the Caribbean and into the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It's winds were clocked at one hundred and ninety miles per hour or three, hundred six. Kilometers per hour as it struck Mississippi and the official death poll from wind storm surge in rain was two hundred and fifty, six people in nineteen seventy one, Herbert. Saffir was working as an engineer in Florida preparing a report for the United Nations building codes that could withstand the onslaught of high speed wins. He eventually came up with a table that outlined the damage to buildings win can cause at various speeds. He worked up five categories of hurricanes based on damage. Each one could cause in nineteen seventy-two Simpson took sappers, numbers and correlated them with storm surge estimates in barometric pressure. The result was the saffir-simpson scale by nine, hundred and seventy-five. The Saffir Simpson scale was in widespread use local state. And Federal officials not to mention the public at large. Now had an easy to read and understand chart that outlined a hurricane's impact. While the Saffir Simpson scale is a good measuring tool it doesn't really tell the full story of a hurricane's impact hurricanes pack a lot of kinetic energy and as a byproduct, a hurricane's power increases exponentially from one category to the next as wind speed increases a category five hurricane for example, is five hundred times more powerful than a category one. How does this relate to property damage compared to a Category One category? Two hurricane can generate seven times. The amount of damage while a category five storm can generate a hundred and forty four times the amount of destruction.

"Players can be difficult with some of the transfers to see how they would have played. Assuming that there's there's no season. The House Jamie Newman quarterback that was awake far. I did what you had gone out with George. If you don't know that, then you can make a guess on it. Well, you would have done this without you don't know, but he would have had an opportunity to really I think moving way up. KJ Costello quarterback Sanford leaves Go to Mississippi State. Judge Wilcox. Great linebacker in North Dakota State. That's one double a. He leaves to go to hell s you could he end up being the top 10. Top 15. Pick with a great year. What if he doesn't play well, and you know he has the North Dakota State tape a Tony Pole. Jan tight end of Central Michigan. Former quarterback leaves to go to Virginia but 67 to 60 with great athletic ability. Maybe he would become the number one number two tight end doesn't place 89 White. And so I think those transfers in particular are the ones that we're looking at that one great opportunity. And if they don't get it, then that obviously will impact your tram position. No mail over the years I've heard you talk about you know, players that could benefit from going back to school is staying in school. Is that statement more true now than ever before, should guys think about opting out so that they can get that year when things are back to normal? And if that's the case, how does that affect the supply chain for seven rounds of NFL draft? Therefore, good question. You don't know what a lot of these kids I know the ones that have opted out so far. I mean everyone. Gregory Russo, I think needed a year of Miami to really improve his take off. You know that quick first out of the blocks. I got some coverage back last year in Miami would have been nice to see him down there. But I think what a lot of players were concerned with is is there going to be interrupted season? If you test positive, then you're missing 23 games. Remember, a lot of these guys have got nothing The playoffs are playing in these bowl games. They're getting ready for the All Star Game, Senior Bowl or the combine Whatever it may be So again, I think that the way the season has gone If there's any risk health risk, then you don't play. On we still although what's gonna happen with season even with that said, what's going to happen with various conferences? Obviously one double A's. For the most part. I'm playing division to Division three West. We see that American, so it's going to be one of those years where you know we'll see which conferences up the play. Which ones don't wear any college football, But certainly I think individual players have to look at it that way were you Can I improve my position? Yeah, By going by playing college football and a lot of cases they can then keep in mind in part, you know, this is all anybody's battled your way into. The NFL guys aren't highly rated until they know there's a lot of guys, your missile and the guys. Guys are under the radar, and there's a lot of guys are never going to get NFL cancer playing college football. That's it. Once they've finished with college football, their football careers are over, so they are looking forward. There's one last opportunity. They don't get it. Those are the kids. Do you really feel sorry for Star NFL prospects were just good college football players that they don't get that chance this year than I can say their careers for the most part could be over now. Piper Junior with a serious peon radio Rothenberg in Scott, on the ESPN radio, ESPN news, Serious except Channel 80. And Of course, you're smart speakers as well. Mel does this benefit. It must write like the power programs the Alabama's of the world if we don't get to see the trade lances of the world and some of the smaller school kids like you mentioned And if you played at Alabama, where Clint's in Ohio State or one of those schools, you have a distinct advantage if we don't get or limited football this season. Well, it's going back to the tape. Really. David, it's really isn't like that You mentioned you have different players familiar, Trey Lancer, North Dakota State who was phenomenal of have an opportunity to see and this year you would have been great, but you still have plenty tape on him. I think it's the kids that didn't have great tape or didn't have an opportunity because of an injury like I bring up. Costello only played five games at Stanford last year from the injury standpoint. 2018. He was great at 65% 29 touchdown passes outstanding last year injured so they'll call Tres quarterback, a Florida really looking to come into his own this year, Florida with a lot of weapons around him, don't give him that opportunity. Then he's not going to go as high as maybe he could. So I think it's It's guys like that are the guys that were the sub packages the guys that were the nickel. They're gonna become the lead corner. You know God, it was a reserved especially there's going to be a starter and have one great years ahead. He doesn't get that year. He is not gonna go into 3rd 4th round. So Yeah, There was a lot of those guys that jumped up into the 3rd 4th 5th round based on one season, and before that season, don't even really haven't arrestable great on memory brings up burro. Burro was once in a lifetime go for the sixth round of their number one pick overall. But there are tonic kids who go into a season way down the list. And because that one year jump significantly, if that season doesn't take place, those of the kid's going to be hurt. More than just about anybody else. If some of the power five conferences decide T not play football, But then some of the power five conferences like the SEC decides to play house is gonna affect maybe potentially the senior bowls and things that sorts you know the time for for guys have opportunity, maybe prove themselves in some postseason type of games to show what they're about to be able to have access to coaches. If you know, assuming that the pandemic will be over with, or we'll have some type of therapeutics or vaccine before. They march. That's great question. Two parties that Jim Maggie does great job at the Senior Bowl, as we all know, is a good friend, and they hope that that game but uses said it. We don't know what the status of the fire is going to be with the status of the vaccine is going to be your hoping therapeutics. Everything's moving along. It seems like everything is getting better. And there's there's better ways to deal with this this awful virus, But Wei don't know. Will it come back? Everybody's speculating on that fall. That's why would be interrupted with CNN's gonna have to deal with a start when they finish..

Tell you what you know what this reminds me of a good point to make on this show every time you try to negotiate. Your price down with your contractor if you're beaten up on them. was remember that they're going into places where you don't see a lot. And if they've got to cut corners because you beat them up on the price so hard. I mean I'm not saying that's the contractors. I mean the the homeowners fault at all. The the contractor they said, they did it. They should have done it. But but. That's just that's

Health Officials Plead for Compliance With COVID-19 Guidelines as New Cases Surge in Parts of U.S.
"Many, many parts of the country, Mississippi, Missouri, Illinois, Ohio. The number of cases arising and some of this is Dr Asheesh, job director of the Harvard Global Health Institute. He is warning that unless attitudes on masks and public health rules change, no region of the country is going to be safe from new outbreaks right now across much of the rust belt. I don't expect schools be ableto open or certainly stay open for any extended period of time. Because their virus levels in 32 states and Puerto Rico the percent of positive test is still above the recommended level for re openings. Handling it properly means wearing masks and avoiding crowds indoors and out. But still gatherings like this House party near Beverly Hills. Keep happening is a public health issue for everybody, No matter how healthy or young you might think you are.
Trump fires TVA chair, cites hiring of foreign workers
"President Trump fires the chair of the Tennessee Valley Authority. The president says the executive was getting paid too much and was hiring foreign workers. Mr. Trump is removing the authorities chair and another member of the board and threatened to remove other board members if they keep hiring foreign labor.

Trump fires TVA chair, cites hiring of foreign workers
"The president today, firing the chair of the Tennessee Valley Authority, the TV a criticizing the federally owned corporation for hiring foreign Workers. President Trump telling reporters at the White House that he was formally removing the chair Skip Thompson and another member of the board, and he threatened to remove other board members if they continue to hire foreign labor. By the way, Thompson was appointed by President Trump as background. The TV A is a federally owned corporation created back in 1933 to provide flood control, electricity and economic development to the Tennessee Valley. That was a region it was hit especially hard during the Great Depression. It covers not only most of Tennessee but also parts of Alabama, Mississippi in Kentucky, as well. A small sections of Georgia, North Carolina and even parts of Virginia. The president is also calling on the CEO to be fired, claiming his $8 million your salary should be closer to $500,000. Informally removing the chairman of the board James Thompson and board member Richard Hold. If the TV a does not move swiftly to reverse their decision to re hire their workers, then more board members will be relieved. We have the absolute right to remove board members on the board makes a decision. I don't make that decision I saw there was an ad on television talking about the amount of money that the chairman makes, and it's a ridiculous amount of money, but we have the right Replace the board and the board is the one the only ones that get the right to then hire a new person. Furthermore, the board must immediately hired that new CEO who puts the interests of American workers. First, the current CEO Jeff Li, Ash is ridiculously overpaid. He earns $8 million a year. Did you know that he's the highest paid government official of any country anywhere in the world? I don't know that Gollum officially a government. It might be a public private. Maybe something is a long time ago, It was established Tennessee Valley, but he gets $8 million a year. So that was just a succession of deep swap things happening on DH. It's a disgrace, but he gets $8 million per year on DH. I can think of about almost 100% of the people I know would take that job and not a very hard job. Not a lot of debt, not a lot of anything, right public services just at those who take these jobs must be focused on the public. Good not on personal profit. He would have taken the job for millions and millions of dollars less. But nobody asked him to do that. Okay, would have gone for less. You could have had him for forming in 15,000,001 million, probably 500,000 year. The new CEO must be paid no more than $500,000 a year, which is still a significant amount more than the president of the United States makes That from the president on the Tennessee Valley Authority again, which was first organized back in 1933 at the start of the FDR

Dr. Birx says coronavirus is "extraordinarily widespread" in rural areas
"Into a new month, and Dr Deborah Birks of the White House Corona Virus Task Force warns that were also in a new phase of the pandemic. What we're seeing today is different for March and April. It is extraordinarily rides spread. It's into the rural as equal urban areas and to everybody who lives in a rural area. You are not immune or protected from this virus. Works told CNN that no matter where people live, they should wear a face mask and practice social distancing. Today, President Trump called her pathetic in a tweet. Joining us now is NPR's Eric Whitney, who's keeping an eye on the latest news about covert 19 around the country. Hi, Eric. Hello, Jeremy. We just heard. Dr Burkes mentioned the spread in rural areas give us more details about where we're seeing spikes in rural parts of this country, So I'm based in Montana. It's a mostly rural state and like a lot of rural states, we've had very low numbers until about June. And since then we're seeing our overall case can't grow exponentially. Following rollbacks on restrictions on businesses and visitors. Last week, we saw a construction site at a mountain resort here blow up with more than 100 positive cases. I know there's a people in tourist towns were really concerned about all the out of state plates. They're seeing across many states, their frontline workers they're concerned about being exposed to the virus. Reporter in Tennessee tells me the outbreak there has now moved beyond Nashville and Memphis and become widespread across much of the state. And I think that's also the case in a lot of southern states with high infection rates like Mississippi and Alabama. Still pretty Communist e big spikes in rural places with big meatpacking plants or other agricultural operations where people worked closely together. Jails and prisons are often located in rural areas, and we're seeing spikes there, too, when you mentioned some of the states that are in the south. In fact, six of the top seven states in terms of the new cases are in the south. The other Being California are things starting to level off at all in those states that have seen spikes in recent weeks well, California's daily case count has dropped from a peak on July 25th of more than 10,000 new cases today. About 6400 yesterday. You know that's good news. But it is far from assured that trend will continue in 6400 cases a day is still huge that Khun spawned a lot of new spread. No, Arizona has seen a more sustained drop recently, the state's weekly average of new cases. Has been going down since early July. But health officials in Arizona and even that state's conservative governor Doug Ducey, are not saying that they're out of the woods yet Governor dues He paused his previous plans to continue broad reopening. Hospitals in Arizona have been strained. That's eased a little bit, but it's not over yet. And then, if you look a test positivity rates in many Southern states like Florida and South Carolina, there's they're often in the double digits. Mississippi's test positive the rate is over 20%. Georges is more than 12% in public health officials say that anything over a 5% positivity rate is concerning, so I don't think we can say that things were leveling off in Southern states.

What did you get into this week? Well I WANNA give out to our local market in Jackson on hostelry some friends and Less than seven hundred there was not seven hundred of us. It was three of US got together and we bought us a bunch of peaches and we sat outside because it cooled off and we peel though son of a guns and cut Emma and put a little on and stuck them in the freezers, and then we did keep enough to make a peach cobbler. So that was what I did this weekend now home. Improvement type projects, but boy, did I have a good time doing that? So you know that's an interesting thing to say there because you looked at the peaches as a project. I would've looked at the peaches is more food so I might have eaten them when I brought him home. So you're not a big you don't you don't keep the. The peeling on a on a peach the skin on each one of my friends took that home. She called her Mama up in North Mississippi tell her how to boil those suckers down and make something with. What are we doing?

The whole point of this top piece of fabric is to keep the area cool and shade because there's no shade at this. Particular? Park. My wife and I thought it was a great idea for our deck somehow to figure this out. So this weekend, we got one of these giant pieces of. We ordered it online a giant piece of fabric with like hooks on the corners. And did what are these projects? I put a couple of posts in the ground and then couple on house and unbelievable. This thing is real talk completely over the deck it's not rainproof. We didn't intend it to be rainproof, but we always use like umbrellas and things like that on the deck. Now, we just walk out everything's there. Of course, string some lights too because that was you know Mississippi so. Anyway, that was the big project this weekend that was a lot of fun though and I got to. Try the different theories that are used here on fix it when I one of how to put a post in the ground with what material whether it be concrete or PEA Gravel or whatever and I think. I. Did
Meet Stagecoach Mary
"A No! That's what I'm saying like. The Postman only rang once. What. What Oh, oh, Hey, we're on! Hello, everybody! My name is Mick Sullivan and welcome to the past and the curious. This is episode number forty six, and we've done an episode about male done episode about trains, and we're kind of talking about both of those things again, but it's two completely new stories. One of the stories you're going to hear is about owning the dog. And I need to think friend of the show Michael. Fleming for his great reading on that one. The other store you're going to hear is about a woman who was generally known s stagecoach Mary, or at least that's how the history books remember her, but her real name was Mary Field and she was a very interesting person. Helping us with that episode. Doing a bit of dialogue is my friend Molly Victor from well. She's the creator of stoop kids, stories, which is an awesome podcast. Part of kids listen highly recommend. Check it out. Be sure to stick around for some songs at the end and patriotic shoutouts and a little bit of fun hiding out there promise. Let's get started. Robbers didn't scare fields. Wolves didn't scare her either. She had held her own against many even deadly cold weather was of little concern to her. Actually for that she had developed a little trick to stay warm and not freeze during these particularly perilous nights to keep her blood pumping, and your temperature up Mary would pace around her wagon all night long to keep from falling asleep. She figured if she did fall asleep in the cold, she might not wake up. A night without any sleep was definitely better than a morning. That never comes as you can see. Mary took her job seriously she had made an oath to the United States Postal Service and had become the very first black woman to have a postal contract and a carrying route with her wagon and team of horses she was responsible for hauling mail and freight through remote areas of Montana, meeting the train and cascade and navigating to Saint Peter's mission. This is how she earned her nickname stagecoach. Mary the fact is she didn't take that horsedrawn wagon to get mail and freight until she was well into adulthood. For most of her life, she wasn't stagecoach Mary at all, but instead Mary, fields. She had been born on a plantation in Tennessee around eighteen, thirty two was never sure about when her birthday was. Like the rest of her family Mary had been enslaved. Forced hard labor in the field was the fate of many enslaved men and women at this plantation. And Mary grew up to be a powerful young woman who worked beside the powerful men. She was tall over six feet by most accounts, and she had a broad, incredibly strong. Now, eighteen sixty five brought an enforceable end to enslavement in the United States, and while many emancipated men and women stayed near their families and friends. Mary immediately left Tennessee in search of work. She I found it on the river during Poker Games and bull sessions later in her life. She liked to tell the story of her job on a riverboat. The Robert E was a steamboat named after the confederate general on which Mary worked in eighteen seventy, there was a famous steamboat race down the Mississippi River from Saint Louis to New Orleans between her boat and another steamer called the NACHOS. Nearly, everything moved at a slower pace in the eighteen hundreds. So it might be hard for us to understand the excitement of a race travelling at an average of fourteen miles an hour and stretched out over several days. Wasn't a slow as molasses, but it wasn't far off. Nonetheless, Americans paid attention. The plotting pace of the race lent itself to the. Of the day, as the steamboats paddled in pushed their way down the river, small towns with Telegraph, the time, each vote passed by two newspapers, print and several daily editions. As exciting as it might have been to track the progress in the morning and evening editions of the newspaper. It was certainly more exciting to be at Mary Shoes, which were on deck or at sometimes below deck by the boiler of the League. She were called the crew feeding the boilers with anything. It would burn to keep the steam earning the paddle wheel. They ran out of wood for the fires. They'd stoke it with other things broken up furniture old clothes, even somebody's desk. What ever it took to win the race? She said to that end. They actually through a whole side of Bacon in the fire. That greasy smoke may have been the key. The League won the three day race by six hours not long after this through the connection of a passenger. Mary went north for a different, even slower paced work. She arrived in Toledo Ohio for the job. At the Ursuline Convent of the sacred heart she served as groundskeeper Gardner, and handled any other jobs for the community of nuns who lived there. In exchange, the nuns gave her a room board and a paycheck Mary definitely stuck out amongst the backdrop of Solomon religious ladies, sharing space nothing about the holy environment could stop Mary from yelling at them or anyone else. Who messed up her meticulously kept landscaping.
"mississippi" Discussed on In The Thick
"Hey welcome back it's in the ungainly. Horsa with by co host who were joined by Rl Ryan Nave and a Rica Bennett. Let's get back to the conversation. All right let's talk about Yes it's true that the that that Mississippi in terms of the primaries it tends to get overlooked. But let's talk about Mississippi in the primaries because oftentimes a lot of them basically it's like Mississippi is a fly over state he something's interesting that happened Mike Bloomberg. Who's still in the race as we know as the Monday before Super Tuesday? He has invested. He's getting out before dimension. Okay all right. We're talking about money because what we know is that might. Bloomberg has up to twenty people working in his office in Mississippi Twenty. Two twenty two people. The only other candidate who has paid staff in the State of Mississippi is Elizabeth Warren. With two staffers so far. Bloomberg has gotten around two dozen Mississippi endorsements from local and state representatives but Bernie. Sanders received a key endorsement. This past Friday that Jackson Mayor Show Quay on Lumumba endorsed Sanders. Away did you have something that you have something to do with? Saw An electoral justice fellow for the Movement for black lives. The Movement for black lives developed a vision for black labs and From the Vision for black started to look at political candidates whose platforms and policies aligned with that vision right and most of those folks where the Democratic nominees wasn't trump folks who were on the Democratic ticket and so they started to really carve out like what would it mean to be in the blackest cities across the United States and host People's caucus in some of my cohort members are calling them black caucus where folks are learning about policies learning about the issues And talking about how they affect communities there from first hand And so you know. We've been doing this in creative ways in about thirteen states like I said and so mine was on February. Fifteenth and the Mayor of the city of Jackson was part of that process. Not In the creating of it but he was a participant. Like everybody else He came through and he said you know what this is. This is wonderful. You know based on this exercise this will be how choose who we will endorse. Wow Yeah so so. That's what happened. It was really about policy right. It was very much again analytical understanding of Policies Sanders could so there was a couple of different things that I wanted to highlight in this space. Right so Tomorrow's point like yeah. There are two campaigns who have staff in Mississippi everybody else has maybe a volunteer base or nobody on the ground Sorry to all of those campaigns and Folks folks came out and we wanted to prove to folks that you know these are people who actually have boots on the ground. These are the issues that Mississippi and say they wanted to talk about. This is where we WANNA be reflected in your policies and you know we really had a chance to go deep in and talk about some things that are unique to to Mississippi unique to Jackson In the people were definitely a major intricate piece to have their process unfolded and shot the young people who dream and imagine what space could be So all right. So are what about you? What's your thought about that? Endorsement by the mayor of Jackson Four Sanders in terms of kind of inspiring. I don't know who will inspire. And what are you feeling in terms of Bloomberg and Biden in Mississippi Not Question Oh loaded question before before the endorsement. I think there's just a lot of talk about you know which direction the mayor would go. We know that Mayor Bloomberg has been here several times. He's given a made his philanthropic arm Bloomberg philanthropies. You know given the city a little bit of cash and then you look at like some other you know other southern black mayors who have endorsed for Vice President Joe Biden in question. Was you know whether or not he would go. You know. Go down that line. You know I think that The People's caucus was of a process. I mean the mayor's sort of like you know he. He you know he ran on this idea of you know the people right and so you know he. He came in listen to to what people had to say and Senator. Sanders has also. I mean he spent time in the state as well. He was here a couple years ago for a town hall with the mayor. You know their values are probably more lined or definitely more line than bitcoin. Bloomberg's just think that you know. Some people wonder whether or not that that endorsement was going to be bought. And you know I don't I don't. I don't think that this this mayor could could have afforded the political blowback of being perceived to having had his endorsement. Wait a minute where you're saying is that there was speculation. That Bloomberg was was going to buy his endorsement as well. Well he's funding this city blue in the city and so I mean it was just kind of just a transactional politics in Russia. But I think it would have disappointed a lot of people who supported this mayor. Absolutely what about Bloomberg? And what are you guys? Think about those two candidates Mississippi I mean gut gut going back to marinas point about the paid staff. I mean you know. Mayor Bloomberg has been a lot of TV as you know he has built this team. You know the conversation. Is You know folks trying to get paid young? How do you pay your conversation about? Let's see getting getting paid or really liking the candidate that you're getting paid to work for. It seems to me and I have to say before. I went down to Mississippi before a South Carolina and Nevada etcetera and seeing how Bloomberg was blanketing the state with his ads. There was definitely this feeling of like. Wow this this feels like you know like some kind of you know of a of a wall that you're gonNA come up against but the Bloomberg Wall. Yeah the Bloomberg spending wall but are you feeling that people Mississippi saw or talked about his his debate performances and are a little bit like Nah. You can't really so the people working for Bloomberg for example if you talk to the NFL say is that the reason they were for the campaign in unison could points though I mean they they think that no matter what happens with the nomination that building political infrastructure political power exactly and but at the expense of who right and so you have to look at who You know we just talked about. Is that GonNa Affect People in the Mississippi Delta or anywhere honestly folks Outside of this political bubble that we live in aren't necessarily watching the debates because why they have to go to work and they have to like do normal people things like politics is a whole nother monster of situation right and so for folks who don't have the luxury the luxury in a light word of like Spinning Holiday Times in this political Ram People are looking to their community leaders. Who have quite frankly endorsed Bloomberg and people who are running this campaign who are notable in those communities In saying oh well if this person is aligned with these values than certainly. This is the person that I'm GonNa vote for and so I think for me. There's just you know this kind of a misuse of political power or political influence. I won't call it power to create that kind of You know I just slow. Have mercy all right listen. Let's get real here guys because we're talking about all these Democratic candidates and it's and you know in a primary but obviously the last Democratic presidential candidate to win your state to win. Mississippi was in nineteen seventy six. My first election that I remember Muttiah was it. Jimmy Carter one so we know that Mississippi continues to be strongly you know. It's a strong red state and in two thousand. Sixteen trump won Mississippi by about eighteen points. Which is fifty seven point nine percent of the vote and he definitely outperformed Mitt Romney from two thousand twelve. Mississippi does have one Democratic Representative Congressman. Bennie Thompson Right. And last November's election in Mississippi there was contentious local elections and trump intervened in Mississippi by backing Republican candidates. Right and so with all these demographic shifts. You know that we're talking about it. But still in recent election white moderates turned out more for Republicans so Brian. This is like the loaded question. But I'm GonNa read loaded question Purple Mississippi Possible. What do what do the two thousand eighteen.

"It's spend two and a half years on cross examination. The prosecution pointed out that a whole bunch of witnesses and facts in this trial would have to be wrong for Curtis to be innocent ours online. It's up to them to decide who has line. After seven days. As of testimony Curtis lovelace trial had come to an end. The jury began deliberations. Remember the first panel was deadlocked. Six two six. Let me ask you this. Have you reached a unanimous verdict but this go round. The jury was out about two hours before it came back with a decision. Eleven years after Korea two and a half years after Curtis's arrest rushed to jury trials later not guilty to our verdict murder trial. I mean what does that tell. You tells me that that they were absolutely convinced. Kurt was innocent. That's not how prosecutor Ed Parkinson sees it. So does the system work or is a guy gotten away with murder sometimes it works. I think my partner and the prosecution said you're looking at a guy who you think might have got away with murder. I feel bad because I think we were right. Well the legal consequences for Curtis over the fallout from Corrie's death continues to paralyze the extended family. I don't know what to believe anymore. Uh Lindsey now. A teacher remains estranged from her father but she hopes to salvage something despite all. That's happened a relationship with your brothers.

"Talk Judge reworking. reworking talk. Curtis lovelace was putting his life in the hands of John loafing his new attorney. Who took on the defense for free had more than twenty years of experience? Just Komo in Criminal Law. Was this your first murder trial it was. I did a battery criminal defense case right out of law school but other than that. This is basically my first criminal defense case Curtis was taking a huge game on the other hand since he was broke. He didn't have a lot of options in his is opening. Remarks Lavi said the state hadn't presented any evidence of murder for a reason. There was no murder all she. You Guys Condition Bla Apple. One of the defenses key goals was to debunk the damaging testimony of Carnoustie's ex- Erica that he had violently attacked her and ripped her shirt. Once we'd finish talking and I taking my notes and one of the first defense witnesses was major Larry fully with the Illinois National Guard. I asked her. She wants to make a sworn statement a formal porn statement which is interesting. She said yes she would. Erica had filed a domestic violence silence charged with the guard since Curtis at the time was still active. The major was appointed to look into the charge in major testified as to what Erica told him. She started backing out. Well backing up. She fell then he went down to pick her up and when he did. She said that he actually struck her. And the chances he was reaching for shoulder you yeah that was her words. Erica at first reported curtis accidentally hitter the major added. She initially didn't mention anything about Curtis ripping her shirt after conducting an investigation. He concluded her charges were unfounded. There was nothing there to actually lead to a domestic violence finding armed with that information. The Defense Confronted Erica in cross examination with her own statement but Erica said the document used in court was a fake. Someone made that up. Someone put those words in. There might signature nutrition there. My signature is not there. This is tight this is written. Anybody can redo this then. The defense did something unusual. It asked Erica about other accusation accusation. She's made against Curtis and she had a laundry list of complaints. He knows how to forge paperwork. He used my social security number to try. Try and steal money out of my account. He knows how to get rid of evidence. He stole my daughter's bicycle out of the garage at one point and overwhelmed Erica asked for a timeout. came out but Erica wasn't folding. She blurted out another allegation in court against her ex he was poisoning me. There was my hair was falling out. There were white lines on my fingers. I was extremely sick. Erica claim Curtis. I try I to poison and her daughter. She told police he likely put something in their orange juice. But according to the defense that was a problem with that charge Erica had never sought sought medical care doctor and said it wouldn't have mattered when Eric left the stand. What do you think the jury remember? I think they were shocked at the state called her. The state thought that they could score points but when she was subject examination she wasn't a credible person. There was one other theme not wanted to drill into this jury and it concerned the lead detective Adam Gibson. A yard had gone pathologist shopping. That is he consulted the series of pathologists before finding one to give him the answer he was looking for that. Yes Corrie's death was in fact a murder. If my opinion is not what what he wants he's going to be going looking for somebody else Dr Shock. Ot's was one of the pathologists Gibson approached her opinion. Detective Gibson wanted her to call this missile homicide. When that was not her conclusion he had a teary and he was looking somehow to substantiate that theory the original pathologists the original coroner said that there was insufficient evidence to find a homicide? You got other opinions from other pet. The hodges who also told him there's nothing unusual here you're barking up the wrong tree then keep even more damaging accusations accusations against detective Gibson. The defense said it obtained at the last minute important emails and other documents it was supposed to have received from the police but never you did potentially exculpatory evidence was not something that I thought of. No one email was from a medical expert and he warned Detective Gibson. Did if the first pathologist left the cause of death is undetermined. That opinion would trump anyone else's andy imply that would give plenty of reasonable doubt to a jury. I believe so yes. I did not the prosecution's this case appeared to be teetering then came another blow. William Ballard was one of the first. EMT's on the scene when he arrived he wanted to place ekg stickers on Corey's body to check for a heartbeat so he moved her arms her arms or downing us or chest. I had to pull them up to Check for a pulse. Check for Any rigor mortis and to also move her arms up to where I could place my stickers where I'm supposed was to place them. He moved Corey's arms before the police photos were taken. That means her arms. Were not in the same position as seen in the photographs. The the one that started this entire second investigation. The defense seized on that fact. You know yeah I did not hear that arms have been moved prior to the pictures. Yes it's basically a yes. Come up for a final surprise for the first time the defendant Curtis lovelace took the stand. He insisted he wasn't a violent man. He never harm to second wife. Erica and certainly did not kill Jill Corey. I did love Corey and I know. The kids loved her and It's been difficult. The defense wrapped up. Its questioning with an an emotional curtis telling jurors of the enormous toll. The two trials had taken on him and his family..

"Curtis lovelace was a local celebrity or at least so infamous according to his new defense team that he couldn't get a fair trial in his home town. A judge agree so trial number two was moved from Quincy to Springfield Illinois about two hours away. The defense is gonNA come up here. And that's David Robinson Robinson would join Ed Parkinson for the prosecution. This time cameras were allowed in the courtroom when the trial started in March. Two thousand seventeen or houses for fifteen eighteen feet apart from each other so as in the first trial neighbors testified. They often hurt arguing from the lovelace home. This woman lived next door and says she heard shouting outing almost every day. Essentially for the entire time that we lived there so six years as I walked by the House I I heard an argument allowed argument. Another neighbor testified. She heard Corey. Curtis really going at it and on a specific date the night before Valentine's Day two thousand six. She happened to be out for a stroll it. Actually I did cost me to pause. I guess I was listening to see if if somebody was in distress. The prosecution's theory this go round on how cory died remained the same after a heated argument the night before Valentine's ends day curtis suffocated his wife with a pillow in a fit of rage. He then waited up to twelve hours before police were called him over here and have safely's and once against science would play a leading role in the prosecution's case but prosecutors had a new witness a star forensic expert. I have testified before the house. Elsevier presentative in a sixty four year career. Dr Warner Spitz has consulted on the JFK. and Martin Luther King assassinations as well as other high profile cases including those of Phil Spector and Casey Anthony Injury. No doubt dodge art in darkened courtroom spit showed photos and talked about that cut inside Corey's mouth Cardis had told police. His wife had fallen in the days before she died his explanation for that injury but this expert said he saw no signs the cut was an old one is no evidence of he like at the time that it incurred the abrasion on the outside of the lip and the cut inside indicated. Decatur is not an object like a pillow have been placed on Corey space. Shortly before she died. This is not an accident. This is not a that child death. This is not a suicide. This is a homicide then came testimony the first jury never got ought to here and it was explosive for this trial. The judge allowed Erica. Goldman's wife number two to testify. Remember when we interviewed her. She wanted to protect your identity but now the witness stand she could no longer be shielded by a disguise. Attacked me. Prosecutors called the ex wife to the stand to to try to show that Curtis had a history of violence. She recounted one incident. She says that happen at home during their marriage had started probably drinking around nine nine. Am and we had been arguing about kids and he came rushing at me and tried to grab me tried to it hurt me and grabbed my shirt and he yanked it up really hard hard enough turn in Germany. He ripped my shirt and then he let me go and he tried to grab me again and I kept on trying to fight him then. Erica told the jury another shocking story. She said Curtis had been drinking at a party. Later that night he blurted out something. She found disturbing. He's fairly honest except for when he's been drinking and he it was talk. He was upset about something. I asked him what he was upset about. And he stated something about she was riding underneath me and then he said Oh the black cat as strangers. That story sounded the prosecutor. took it to mean. This curtis wasn't talking talking about a cat but about Corey's last minutes of life as she struggled while Curtis Mother Erica. That story that tells us what particular quote that came out and he says I could hear her writhing beneath me. Yes that was evidence and it sounds as though he's talking about killing his wife at that we thought it sounded like and she testified to that under oath both on the stand I could feel her writhing beneath me and that's pretty much. What would have happened? If suffocation was occurring the prosecution believed it's evidence against Curtis was overwhelming. Not so fast said the defense. That's because it had some things of its lease a new piece of last minute evidence and what an interesting nugget they had found coming up. Tough questions for Erica. Someone someone made that up someone put those words in there might signature should be there. Anybody can redo this and bombshell testimony inside percents.

"And let me say on the two older boys unlike. I'm like their sister. Stop to the story. They told police this year. Out of yes. I think she did if jurors believed them. It blew apart the prosecution's excecutions timeline. That corey was murdered the night before they said the same thing that they had told Baird in two thousand six and detective Gibson in two thousand fourteen and the defense had its sights on detective Gibson they claimed in two thousand thirteen he was an overeager newly promoted detective primarily assigned to Work Crimes Times against seniors. This was his first murder case. He transferred from Canine Officer to elder service officer and around the same time. He went to a one week course on being lead detective in the homicide case and he embarked on this investigation allegation that that led to my indictment. Finally the defenses medical expert concluded there was only one plausible explanation for Corrie's death. She had a history of drinking and falling and that caused that abrasion and cut the bottom line. She was an alcoholic and believe MSC suffering from a liver disease someone who unfortunately died of natural causes. She's not a normal thirty eight year. Old woman she has a significant disease of a major organ that is associated associated with sudden death and with liver failure in the end Curtis decided not to take the stand. Ten women and two men would decide lovelace his fate. The deliberations went on for two full days. Then Christine got the call to come back to the courthouse. I knew in my heart. He was coming home. You're going to prevail. It's coming home. Yes but once she arrived bailiffs led her to a small law library. Christine came and and and explain to her for the first time. What was about to happen? That the judge would declare a mistrial. Kurt was sitting across WHO said I'm not going to be able to come home tonight and And I lost all my air. It was terrible. The jury was hopelessly deadlocked the vote. Six guilty six not curtis would face another trial. Since he couldn't make bail he'd remain in jail unless a deal a plea deal the they they had offered A A second degree a murder plea but I knew it was a decision not only that I had to make that we had to make as a family and I didn't know whether I can put them through another year of what we had already gone through. That's when one of Curtis's lawyers turn to Christine and he said that this can all end right now. If Kurt agrees to take this deal he said it would keep him from dying in prison but he'd have to admit his culpability responsibility in Corrie's death that's the condition right correct and that he wouldn't have have to spend probably any more than thirteen years in prison. The two said No. Thanks to the states offer and geared up for a second trial but that force them to face another Dr reality they were totally broke unable to afford another lawyer. What are we going to do? I mean at that point there. It didn't appear to be any option. This could be a moment for Christine to say I'm Outta here. I didn't sign on to be some. Tammy Wynette for this guy standing by her man. I'm gone yeah. And and and who could blame her if she would have done that but that's not not who she is. It looked though curtis would have to use a public defender but Christine wouldn't accept that option. She worked her connections and eventually ended up here in Chicago. She came into our office and told US her story. And I remember found it compelling and certainly worth exploring further. John `love' is not a criminal lawyer. Here he's a civil rights attorney by practice who also does pro Bono work with the exoneration project it's aim overturn wrongful convictions. Got Curtis hadn't been convicted at least not yet. Still `love' and co-counsel Tara Thompson decided to take the case. Their services would be free. The main concern concerned that I had in this case from the outset was really the lack of evidence. This didn't feel like a murder case from the beginning with a new defense team in place. Christine got working on her next goal making bail to get her husband out of jail. Friends eventually put up the cash. Almost almost two years after his arrest Curtis was released to his wife and saw. They greeted me at Hancock County jail and I. I came home to a dog that I had never met and and for the first time. Got To be so back in my house and and back in my home but it wouldn't be home sweet home for a long while Curtis and Mrs lovelace number three waited for the the next trial in the alleged murder of Mrs lovelace number one. The judge ruled Mrs Lovely Number. Two could testify against her former husband. And what a story appreciate coming up Erica out of disguise and on the stand recounting. What she says was a marriage from? I'm hell he ripped my shirt and then he let me go and he tried to grab me again. Done trying to fight him off when when dateline continues.

"Cardis lovelace was the hometown hero now. His face was plastered on the front pages of Quincy's newspaper as an accused murderer. We're relying on scientific medic the media including our Quincy NBC affiliate were all over the story covering nearly every moment of his fall from grace. He's accused of killing his first wife. The former prosecutor would himself be prosecuted persecuted by Ed Parkinson Je can't get around. Rigor Mortis in my opinion and make sense of this case. The timeline doesn't make sense with Curtis loveless in January two thousand sixteen nearly a decade after Corey lovelace. His Death Curtis arrived for the first day of his trial. He faced twenty to sixty years in prison upon conviction for first degree murder. He pleaded not guilty cameras. Were not allowed in the courtroom. It's clear to me it. It didn't matter or what I did. As far as the prosecution was concerned their only concern was that they needed to create a crime and they needed for me to look bad bad in order to do that. Curtis didn't necessarily need prosecutors helped to look back some of his own actions. The Day Corey died. Were at the very least unusual joie including never calling nine one one. He called. Who is boss? His wife is dead yes and he calls his boss. Yeah he said my wife is dead so so his boss said what would you like to call the ambulance people. Yes would you do that. Corey's mom Mardi diedricks and who live just a few houses away away testified that Curtis broke the news of her daughter's death and what she thought was the most callous way there was a knock at her door. Curtis was standing there with four year. Old norse open the door and says oh by the way correspondent and leaves Mardi. I've got to say yeah. I think that's very strange. Take your grandson and by the way. Your daughter's dead. He was emotionless. Let's put it that way People who saw him that they claimed that he was without emotion. Curtis also knew CPR and yet he never tried to revive his wife on the day. Why didn't you do CPR? We are I don't know I don't know why I didn't do CPR. I don't know why I didn't call nine one one in looking back. I saw my wife Corey dead and I didn't know how to react prosecutor Parkinson next one. After the first police investigation pushing hard against detective bear. WHO handled the case? He questioned if bear gave Curtis who was then an assistant. State's attorney preferential treatment. He was a prosecutor. They were the police he gave him a story that he How it happened? They bought into it after. Aw He's one of us so maybe tougher questions didn't get asked I think so. Neighbors testify the lovelace household was sometimes stormy one and that Parkinson suggested to jurors is the backdrop of Corrie's death. They fought all the time. It was a rocky marriage with lots of arguments going both ways and it got out out of control maybe. The evidence indicates that placing the pillow over once face to make them stop yelling at me. Maybe maybe in her weakened state if she was had flu like symptoms. Maybe it went too far. The state's theory remember is the force of the pillow caused that cut and abrasion on the outside and inside of Corey's lip the prosecutor then implied that pillow was placed under her arms after she died and later removed. If you leave it there through the night in while Rigor mortis setting in and then if a person thinking Oh my God what did I do and Oh. There's that pillow and her. I'm going to get rid of that pillow then arms are already up and you think that's what happened. Yes but then came. Perhaps the most anticipated anticipated testimony for the prosecution. Lindsey Curtis's own daughter took the stand two times over a span of eight years. She told police her mother was US alive that morning. Better but on the stand with her dad's life on the line. She changed her story telling jurors she was no longer sure. Our mom was alive that day. Don't remember any of it but it doesn't stick in your memory now and yet detective barons notes. You do tell him the story about seeing your mother and then and with a videotaped interview with the detective Gibson. You seem quite clear about that morning in yes you saw and went off to school. What happened in the interim between your statement and going into trial? Oh on the stand and then kind of stepping back from all of that. It was the fact that no one had honestly asked me sincerely what had happened that day. And I'd never taken time to actually actually think about it. I did a couple of years before when you took your statement but again I didn't know why he was asking me. I didn't know what was going on and I gave the story I always gave so when I a had to sit there and think about it I had to be honest with myself and it wasn't the answer I wanted. I wish I could say I really do wish I could say yes. I remember her or no. I know I didn't see her. But you cannot say that but I cannot say that this is not getting back at your dad who you're very sideways with at this point now because it hurts my story and you're not gonNA give it to them no because it hurts my brothers to for me not to honestly say yes. I saw her. But I'm GonNa say what I can remember which is nothing. It's a black hole hole. It's traumatizing event. And when kids go through traumatizing events. They block things out and losing. My mother was the worst Komo life. How are we to understand what's going on with with Lindsay Christine? Because she has told the story that she she like her brothers. Remember seeing her mom alive but then she backs away from it and says I think I can't remember really I don't know what's in Lindsay's had in her heart one day. She was happy and then everything changed against. The prosecution. Still had to explain why the two oldest boys were adamant. Their mom was alive that morning. Parkinson told jurors there was a two day gap between Corrie's death and the first police interviews with the kids apple time. He suggested for the boys to be influenced by their dad. I think the children were confused. Just as a coach do you think that he told him a story. He had custody of the children from the moment of discovery until Thursday afternoon. So from MM Tuesday till Thursday afternoon. I don't know what was said Dr. Jean Turner goes pathologist. Detective Gibson hired to review. The case took the stand and said science. Silence is where the truth lies. She concluded the most reasonable explanation. For Corrie's arms appearing to levitated is that Corey was dead up to twelve hours before before police arrived on the scene. I viewed this material and reviewed it with the eye of a scientist and what we know about the the development. Of Rigor Mortis. What would a jury believe science or the words from two of his own sons? Corey's brother dentist found himself mm soap struggling over the conflicting facts scientists. My lip you know. I have to believe in that but I also have to believe in the family at the same time so I'm completely torn. I've never seen a more difficult case more closely argued and doesn't seem to be middle ground to there's there's none Parkinson urged the jury to focus on the science science and one image corey in her bed her body. And Rigor Mortis. He said it proves she died hours before Curtis claimed it proved he was lying. It proved he argued. That curtis killer coming up. The defense gets its turn and Christine is feeling optimistic. I knew in my heart. He was coming home until Christine came in and explained to her.

"Her. Meanwhile Christine was in a panic for two reasons husband had just been arrested and now she was looking for or her sons. I found out that all three boys at the police station. The boys were down there. They had been taken out of school and held in isolation Chan earlier in the day they were just seventeen fifteen and twelve years old at the time all alone at the police headquarters. Once Christine found out. They were lear. She rushed to the station. What were the kids told? What did they think was going on? They actually thought that something had happened to me. I walked into the room. And they got up and they all Were very scared and they hugged me and I told them everything would be okay. Hey we'll figure this out. Detective Gibson had rounded up the boys because he was looking for more information looking into the death of the your move from two thousand six okay. The detective started to question them about the last days of their mother's life. So you went into your room. Confusing dead rake up every morning. And then I don't watch him. You know what time that was Larson. The youngest son wasn't wasn't interviewed by police back in two thousand six because he was only four years old now he was telling detective Gibson. He wasn't sure if his mother was alive that good morning he said he only remember getting out of bed and going to his mom's room but she didn't answer him. I just remember like Roman shorter. Wake up the biggest Valentine's yeah let's was gone. Came back and then I told him that she was But the two older boys said they did remember seeing their mom that morning. This is Lincoln the middle boy and remember like like Waking Up. I remember her not feeling good. And I'm sitting on stairs and then I went to school. I think I remember saying saying I love you before we left Logan. The eldest son said he knew for certain that his mom was alive that February fourteenth steps Christine was still trying to find her husband. She didn't know he'd been transferred to a different jail eventually. He called and he told me everything would be okay and that we were going to have to to fight some. The things Christine was a wreck. Her husband was in jail and she was dumbfounded as to why the police had taken the boys out of school and then interviewed them without parental rental permission. She felt better about this. Though the two oldest boys back their dead story. They had seen their mom corey alive. Valentine's Day morning Justice Justice Curtis said. They saw their mother live that day. That's that's the gist of their story. Yes I saw her alive that morning when dad took the school so therefore she couldn't have been dead upstairs in right dying. Rigor mortis setting in. Because we saw her alive. It's the boy's sister. Lindsay had also told police to separate times. Her Mom was alive that morning had seen her off to school. On Valentine's Day saint marks on the Davor father's arrest. Lindsey was away at college when she had an emotional talk with her brothers. Talk to him on the phone. They got arrested and they passed the phone around and they were sobbing because they were scared and they asked me to come home and that was the last thing I ever said to ever talk to them. That's when another tragedy unfolded with in the lovelace family. Around the time of Curtis's arrest arrest his relationship with his daughter once again deteriorated. The family doesn't WANNA get into details. But Soon Lindsey found herself caught off from her brothers to I had been shut out completely. Shut out where you knew the charge against your father. And the theory of the crime that he put a pillow over your mother's nose and smothered her. That's a stark image to deal with. It's something I didn't ponder and I chose not to ponder though a jury would soon be pondering during Curtis's guilt or innocence in August. Two thousand fourteen. The forty five year old former assistant state's attorney found himself standing in a courtroom. This this time as a defendant at his own arraignment having to appear in a courtroom that I had served as a prosecutor in dressed in in stripes. Yes and and having my my hands and my feet shackled Those those were some some really low times. James married just eight months wife number.

"Chris Valentine's Day now. Nothing I don't stay Corey's husband. Meanwhile had remarried divorced and married again and in all that time. No one really questioned the why or how of Corrie's death. But all no that changed one day when a man in a windowless room a few blocks off the Mississippi found himself with spare time on his hands. That was sitting in my office and all of our files are computer. It was late two thousand thirteen almost eight years. After Corrie's death Adam Gibson a newly minted detective active with the Quincy Police Department began pulling up old files not looking for anything. In particular. Just reading old cases Corey levels popped in in my hand and I read the report. The name mean anything to you. Yeah I knew. I knew curtis loveless. Because he was had been at one time one of our assistant. State's attorneys There wasn't much read in the file. Truth be told a statement from Curtis. The husband police interviews with three older children and the pathologist summary Autopsy findings with some photos. So you knew what had happened in two thousand six SORTA or yeah. I knew that she had passed away on Valentine's Day. Two thousand six. What was the medical examiner's finding about the death of that woman that was undetermined was original autopsy? What did that mean to you with you? Encountered that before undetermined could mean a lot. The things But in this particular autopsy there were things listed this suspicious or traumatic findings for instance. The report mentioned that Abrasion Asian on Corey's face just under her nose something. The arriving officer had observed that day the pathologist also noted the cut what she called a laceration on the inside inside of Corey's upper lip the detective kept scrolling and then saw something that just stopped him cold and electrifying image. The police photos of the the dead wife and mother as she lay in her bed. What jumped out at you? Most definitely arms were an unnaturally raise position the hands in an unnatural kind of way. Her hands ends defy gravity. Not Support on you know just kind of out there like a stature. Yes using police photos from the scene. We created this graphic traffic representation of chorus bedroom. You can see chorus arms frozen in-depth above her body. That final pose had caught detective. Jeff Barrett's attention years. Here's before a curiosity but he didn't sign it any real significance. Now Adam Gibson did rigor mortis yes. In my opinion the mechanics of Rigor mortis go like this upon death. A human's muscles start to stiffen but to the detective. It looked as though Corey's arms arms and hands were in an advanced state of rigor meaning. She likely died many hours before this photo was taken remember. Curtis said he tucked his sickly wife into bed only an hour before finding her dead. It didn't make sense to the officer. Detective Gibson went straight to his bosses with the old lovelace file. My first thought was we missed something. Something here chief Robert Copley had been in charge in two thousand six when everyone assumed corey had died a natural death but he says he never saw the photos that detective did was now holding before him. And that's when I saw the pictures the first time. Would you think I thought this is. This is not natural arm so definitely appear to me. That rig mortar said sat in I I look at those pictures and I can't believe that we accepted a undetermined. Airman calls a death in a natural death. Detective Gibson agreed but they had a problem very thin. What you're working is? Yes some notes from medical examiner from eight years before and a few photos very few. Yeah and only two. Two slides were taken by the path Allah Gist and passed on evidence. Evidence so yeah very thin file so police went back to the doctor who did that autopsy and asked her to review the case. She did but she would not alter her original findings. The next might have been to order a new autopsy but that wasn't possible since he's family. Had Her remains cremated. The only option was was to work with what they had. Detective Gibson had a suggestion. He wanted to have the autopsy reviewed by someone else have basically a review view of the original autopsy. Done couldn't do a new autopsy because the body had been cremated. The chief okayed the request to hire a new pathologist to review old old autopsy notes. The detective also had something else in mind to beef up his case. Talk to anyone and everyone. Who'd known corey? His first call was to Vermont Marty. He told her he wanted to meet. But not one is you know. Can we set up a time maybe remindful or whatever I said well scratch what I'm doing afternoon and you just come now because I was so nervous Matt. What it was everything old was about to be new a new very unsettling Coming up different medical examiner reaches a different conclusion. Be Homicide and I did. Tactic has a question for Curtis' daughter. She's the morning you went to school here. Did you think was happening. I didn't know.

"The routine of the house was in a tizzy with Corey. Second bed it had been up to carnage to get the three oldest kids off off to school. Now he was back when I arrived. Home everything was quiet. I assume that Corey was sleeping resting. She hadn't slept Most of the night I was just going to leave her alone in order to Sleep before looking in honor. He said he went over his emails in the kitchen. Then he headed upstairs take a shower. And as I walked up the steps I I looked to the left The door to your bedroom was as I left it open. I could see her line in bed and I could see something from the distance. Didn't seem right So I will say that looking just I. I'm really not sure as I got closer. I could see that she was Pale. She was motionless and I immediately knew that something was was really really wrong. Did you think she said I shook her. I told out her her name. And at that point I knew that she was dead in that moment. He said his thoughts turned to his four year. Old Boy Larsen who was still in the house and I needed to get Larsen Larsen out of the House. And what did you do I grabbed Larson. I believe he was in bed and I took him immediately over to to his grandparents. Grandparent's house Corey's mom MARDI answered the door. She remembers her son-in-law standing there with a young boy and saying something nonsensical Michael about her daughter. Being dead it was just kind of mid morning. There he is. There is not open. The door hands me Larson and then he said something about people are coming or something often regretted not just putting Larson down and running over there stung. She called her son. Corey's brother Peter this dental practice phone call from my mom when it was just kind of out of the blue. I didn't think anything instead. That can't be thirty eight years old. There's no way just just saw a couple weeks ago. Jeff Baird then a detective with the Quincy. Police Department was assigned to head the death investigation. When he arrived at the scene he went straight? Great upstairs. He was in the bedroom when the corner examined Corrie's body. He tested her body temperature by placing his hand against her abdomen. I followed suit the body warm or cold at the abdomen. Warm to warm. What did that tell the corner? He knew that the time of death was was narrowed then for the body to still be warm. It seemed clear that Corrie's death had been recent within the past hour so not an officer why I or how the woman died. The detective couldn't rule out any possibility including foul play around the room itself any overturned glasses or any signs signs of a struggle. Now so as a here you. You're telling me you're seeing a woman who was apparently died in her bed and not that long before authorities arrived. That's right if I can stress. There wasn't a single mark on her other than what appeared to be skin-blemish under knows mark and yet there was something about the position of Corey's body that did strike them as odd. He thought death in gravity would have caused her arms arms to drop instead. They were both fixed in mid air hovering above her chest. I was looking for an explanation for that and I even addressed it to Curtis Curtis loveless. I asked him if there's a possibility that blankets had been under her arms when he discovered her and what he say no so no so he you said the scene that you were saying was the way he saw it when he came and found his wife his account yes but then the detective was careful not to get hung up on one strange detail not this early case. Every detective needs to keep in mind that there could be a bigger picture and Oh yes. There was a portrait Richard of a woman portrait of marriage filled with details painted in a most unflattering light. Coming up a peek behind line closed. Doors you were drinking too much. I drank too much. Cory was drinking too much cory was drinking too much and a daughter mourns her mom is remember crying trying and not believing it when Dateline continues.

"I'm here in this segment with David Baria who is running for the US Senate from Mississippi. Hi, David. How are you? I'm great. Thanks so much for joining me. Great. So I I know you have a really compelling story about why you I got into politics and I thought maybe we could start there if you could tell our listeners a little bit about your background and why you I got into politics. Well, in terms of background, I grew up in a small community down in the south Mississippi. Just north of pascagoula. The little community was felt asking Salta and I was working people. My my grandparents were working folks as well with, you know, limited education. Nobody can that group of adults in my life that ever graduated from college, and I went to southern Mississippi and got a degree, and then I went on to miss law school. Got a law degree, met my wife there, my future wife and we moved to Jackson Mississippi and began practicing all and raising our family. We had three children under three at one time, and we will work. A lot as our children got older, they, we're in Jackson public schools, and we were big proponents of public education in Mississippi, and I began talking much about moving back to the Gulf Coast. There's something about the salt water just sort of beckons to boy who grew up down that way. And it took me quite a few years, but I finally talked her into it and the deal was that she got to choose the place that we live. So instead of moving back to my home county, we moved to accounting to the west Hancock county in a little town called base. Ain't Lewis, which is about forty miles east of New Orleans, Louisiana, and we had a great place down there. We have old house that was built in eighteen seventy and we we were right on go Mexico and for about seventeen months. All was really wonderful. And then Hurricane Katrina rolled through in August of two thousand five and wipe us out, took our home everything we owned as. I did with a lot of my neighbors and my law office down on mainstream. Basically Lewis went underwater. And so you know, we were like everyone else don't along the Mississippi Gulf Coast just trying to recover and about a month after that, my son was became very ill and we didn't know exactly what the problem was. He was hospitalized and he spent several days comatose at the University Medical Center in Jackson Mississippi, and then see that. And we didn't learn until afterwards that he had rabies. She was the only person in the United States today of that disease in two thousand five and the first person to die from rabies in Mississippi since nineteen forty, seven. It's virtually unheard of these days, but in the aftermath of those two big life changing events, my wife and I decided that we were going to rededicate our lives to what. It was important to us, and my wife was really involved in making our county greener in rebuilding, and you know, sustainable and using green technology and that sort of thing. And she formed a nonprofit that focused on that and recycling making Greenaway's. And she raise money to buy planters and planted lots of flowers around downtown basing Lewis. And so that's sort of the past she took in the past. I chose to take was to get involved in politics and run for office and represent my community through this rebuilding effort. And so in two thousand seven Iran for the Mississippi Senate, and I ran against a person whose family founded the county and he had thousands and thousands of relatives, and he was a sixteen year incumbent, and there were two barriers in the county, not life, and so it was a real long shot. But I ended up. Winning star four years in the Senate, and then ran for the house of representatives in two thousand eleven was elected, and then ran again in two thousand fifteen and was elected once again and they district that votes about seventy five percent Republican. So that's sort of my back stories. And that leads us to where I am today and your is still currently in the the house of representatives right now, and you're the minority caucus leader. The house of representatives in Mississippi is still overwhelmingly Republican to find that you're able to have an impact to to make things work, what it what does that look like right now for you?.
