Going to court on this job is interesting. In Evansville (really, all of Indiana, I think) cameras are not allowed in courtrooms, so you obviously don't have a lot of video to work with. It can also be tricky trying to come away with quotes, since you are relying solely on the swiftness of your fingers jotting down notes. I'm pretty quick, but always end up second-guessing what I'm writing because it happens so fast. I never want to misquote anyone—ever.
Well, today I went to a 1pm arraignment for a murder suspect in a deadly shooting last week. We don't usually really go to these, but today we decided to give it a try. The appearance in court was very brief. The suspect appeared via video, answered a few questions from the judge… and that, was that. Afterwards, though, I was able to talk to both the suspect's father and half-brother, as well as the family of the victim.
It's not always the easiest thing, talking to families who have lost loved ones. I was grateful the victim's family was kind to me. The mother, who lost her son, ended up doing an interview. She was clearly upset about everything, as to be expected. She said they will bury her son later this week. He leaves behind a daughter who I believe goes to IU and a four year old.
What was strange about this case is that the suspect's father and victim's mother know each other—pretty well. In fact, the suspect's father told me he pretty much considers the victim's relatives like family. And, I guess, technically, they are. The mother of several of his children is the aunt of the victim.
He came up in the hallway and hugged the victim's mother. They spoke for a while. I'm sure this was not particularly easy for either of them. Though they were nice to each other, I'm sure both sides have different opinions about the whole thing. I'm not sure either side knows definitively what happened, though it sounds as if they have heard things. I guess that will all come out as the case progresses.
