According to the search warrants made public Wednesday, police also took into evidence a greeting card addressed to Christopher Coleman's post office box in Columbia from St. Petersburg, Fla., found in the glove box of Coleman's 1998 green Ford Explorer
Like Scott Peterson, this POS had a PO box so that he could receive mail from his girlfriend in Florida without his wife knowing. I guess he trusted her to stay out of the glove box of his car. Further:
With the search warrant for Chris Coleman's body, police took two swabbings of his right hand and noted a reddish injury to his right forearm, and two scratches on his right forearm. Police also took handwriting samples from him.So. Possible defensive injuries. And handwriting samples. Were the police suspicious from the beginning, or were they seeking to eliminate him as a suspect? Not that it really matters in the long run, because I think he will be found to be the one who wrote on the walls.
A Home Depot receipt dated July 29 for the purchase of spray paint was recovered from a travel bag that contained Chris Coleman's wallet.The receipt for spray paint from last July is not suspicious of itself...heck, I have spray paint around that I bought that long ago. The suspicious thing, for me, is where it was found. In "a travel bag that contained Chris Coleman's wallet." As well, I'd like to know if he made a habit of keeping such close tabs on receipts. The article does not say if there were other receipts in the bag (with his wallet).
The thing is, your wallet is something you keep a close eye on. It usually contains ID, credit cards, cash, etc., and is not the sort of thing you just drop into a bag that holds all your miscellaneous receipts. Pursuant to that, why was his wallet in a travel bag? Shouldn't it be on his person? The article doesn't say "a wallet," but, "Chris Coleman's wallet." this implies that his drivers' license or other identification was in it. Why would it be in a travel bag with a receipt for spray paint that dates back to last year?
Curiouser and curiouser.
Here is a PDF of the search warrant inventory. They had enough cameras, cell phones, computers and such to keep them busy for a lifetime. Guns, too. And why in the heck would the cops take the satellite dish?
