Aaron Powell Trial: Day 5

Day five of the Aaron Powell trial focused on the arrest of Powell on  March 26th in Springfield Township, Pennsylvania. Broome County Captain Fred Akshar said Powell looked like he had been on the run for a while and had two cuts on one of his wrists that looked to be self inflicted. Captain Akshar told the defense the reason for going after Powell was because after looking at all 195 leads in the case, their main suspect was Powell.

Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Gerald Gustas took the stand next and stated to the prosecution that the 2007 GMC Denali was found basically in the middle of no where and the car was located on a private dirt road.

Now in the car, Gustas told the prosecution he found over 40 cigarette butts around the vehicle as well as blood on the outside of the door and inside the interior of the car. 

After investigating the vehicle, Broome County Sheriff's Sergeant Jason Ellis told the prosecution that he found two garage door openers and a set of keys in a black toiletry bag in the passenger seat. Ellis and his crew then drove back to 41-85 Lisi Lane and both of the garage door openers  worked on the right side of the garage while the set of keys did not open any of the doors.

Sergeant Ellis then  went on to tell the defense that after searching Christina Powell's phone, they found the last text she sent. it was sent to Powell's friend Reggie Hawkins on March 21st at 8:17 pm.
 
The prosecution resumes tomorrow morning at 10.
