Candice Garvey got it all wrong. I don’t think that she or Denise had a clue what time it was other than their knowledge of when the recital started (5:00) and how long they FELT it lasted. Candice had noting to do after the recital that I know of, which would have made it important for her to check the time. Neither did Denise.
Denise was going to dinner with her family. If she were paying attention to the time she left the recital she would have made a connection between that time and the time Nicole’s dinner reservations were set for. She didn’t. I’d say that her mind was on something else.
Like Pat V said, O.J. did a lot of things that day and the night before that one can reasonably expect would leave him tired. That’s how he looked to Kato when they went to McDonald’s together. Marcia tired to get him to say that O.J. was in a dark mood, the way Garvey and Denise described him. When Kato refused to do it, Marcia asked the judge to declare him a hostile witness.
Garvey and Denise interpreted O.J. demeanor as “menacing” AFTER the murders.
Earlier that evening Kato talked about O.J.’s mood after the recital. He said that O.J. was up beat about Sydney’s performance. He said that O.J. got home between 6:30 and 7:00. He anchored his time estimate to the end of the basketball playoff game.
As far as I can see, you have two totally unreliable time witnesses, Candice and Denise, who say the recital ended after 7:00 and three reliable time witnesses, Kato, DeBello and Gavin, who say that it ended before then. The time of the dinner reservation (6:30), the time of DeBello’s arrival at the restaurant (6:45) and what he saw when he got there (the Browns eating dinner), says that the recital ended between 6:30 and 6:45. –Jasper
