You ignore this testimony from the Criminal Trial.
YES. THE DOG BARKED CONSIDERABLY AT THE CORNER OF GORHAM AND BUNDY. THIS WAS LIKE THE LOUDEST BARKING REALLY THAT IT DID DURING THE COURSE OF THE TIME THAT I WAS WITH IT. AND IT WENT ON FOR A LONGER PERIOD OF TIME THAN IT HAD BARKING AT THE INDIVIDUAL HOUSES. IT REALLY, YOU KNOW, BARKED AND HOWLED QUITE A BIT HERE, (INDICATING). RIGHT ABOUT HERE, (INDICATING). AGAIN, THIS IS MY HABIT. I CROSS THE STREET HERE. I CROSS -- I HAVE TO CROSS GORHAM AND I END UP CROSSING FROM THE EAST SIDE AND ENDING UP BACK ON THE WEST SIDE AT BUNDY, SO I CROSSED THE STREET HERE AND THE DOG STOOD AT THIS POINT HERE AND BARKED CONSIDERABLY AS MY DOG AND I CONTINUED TO WALK DOWN BUNDY TOWARDS MONTANA. Q CAN YOU LOOK AT YOUR MONITOR, SIR. YOU SEE WHERE THAT PINK ARROW IS? A THAT IS BASICALLY CORRECT EXCEPT IT IS THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STREET. Q OKAY. THAT YELLOW ARROW? A IT WAS ON THE -- AGAIN AT THIS POINT IT WAS THE WEST SIDE OF BUNDY. Q ON THE WEST SIDE OF BUNDY? A YES.
How many times does he have to say he was on the west side of Bundy at that point?
So the sequence is at the corner of Dorth and Bundy on the west side, he sees the dog. He crosses voer to the East side and walks up Bundy toward Gorham. When he gets to Gorham, he crosses back over to the West side of Bundy and continues on up to Montana. Now that may see strange to you but if you understand the corner of Gorham and Bundy, you would understand it is shorter to cross to the west side than to continue going on the east side. If you look at the article on Dick's site, you would see more clearly how that corner is (I have been there). If you relate the situation to Heidstra hearing the dog as he approached the curve taking Gorham into Bundy, you could visualize that crossing beck to the west side of Bundy makes sense.
I will recheck what you said about the dog barking from 10:50pm to 10:55pm.
I hope on your maps you will adjust Heidstra to leaving his house at 10:15pm. Also you have him taking less time on the longer part of the walk than on on the 900 or so feet he had to go to get back to his apartment from the place he saw the SUV.
