Jasper, Yes, we are.
When I said the time fit with Stein is that the impression was given that she heard them at 10:15. But with the 10:30 (?) beginning and she says it is about a 1/2 hour---it being around 10:50 or so when he comes in is less than a half hour but she was guessing. If she heard it begin at 10:15 and it was close to 10:50, it would have been slightly over. But the POINT being that give or take a few minutes--it works for Karpf coming home at the time you say he does. Anyway you shake it up, she was Guessing around a 1/2 hour.
ANd to restate it. IT was the IMPRESSION that the man was Schwab is what ended up being important here. Whether he was or not is not what matters. It is the impression that it was Schwab.
And this is where the DA's fakey diagrams and drawing help out. I mentioned a long time ago that for YEARS, I had the condo facing the wrong way due to the numberous air photos shown at the time. And you had Heistra in the wrong alley and I think it might have been for the same reason whether you realize it or not. And I doubt the jury was any better off (until they saw the scene for themselves). I got frustrated myself many a time watching the trial because of this and the way the diagrams were presented (almost slight of hand) which I now believe was deliberate. Heaven help us if the jury and others figure out that Schwab and the person that Karpf see aren't the same man. (or aren't necessarily the same man)
This was done also with the diagrams of the front of Nicole's condo. I actually saw one that Fung used that positioned Nicole's body BETWEEN the steps and the front door. (on the pathway where the prints were found) The steps were below her body. (on her front side)
And the reason I DON'T get off Schwab's case is that the Practical Consequences of heis flagging down the cop was to divert him away from the scene and give himself a plausible reason for being there. Esp. not mentioning the blood on the dog.
Yes, Schwab tells the "perfect" story and it fits. Unless he is the lookout.
Or maybe he is just the dog finder who just happens to hyperventilate on the stand when telling about finding the dog and the "trauma" he went through worrying about the DOG. Yet, he isn't so worried that he tells the cop about the blood. Maybe.
