I was hoping you would recall the way we went around on where Schwab saw the couple. If you go back through that exchange you will see that it appeared we were at an impasse there, too. Neither of us had everything right but there was no way for me to see what you were talking about until I got an accurate picture of the Bundy curve. You sent me Dick’s drawing and everything you were trying to tell me about where Schwab saw the couple on Bundy fell into place. It could not have happened that way with the curve I had in my head. It had to happen that way with the curve in Dick’s drawing.
I didn’t go it alone with Kato’s Walk, either. I took my best shot, put it up on the site and asked for criticism. I got plenty of it. Some was valid some wasn’t. Some was purely technical. When I pressed “save as” my screen showed the animation I saved. But when I looked at it in my browser, I got the same animation I started with. Sometimes the program would throw the right animation in the wrong place or put two copies of the same animation where I had two different animations. It’s a software bug that I have learned to get around. You knew only what you saw.
Anyhow, I corrected errors and did some redesign and labeling to emphasize points that weren’t clear to some people.
I have not overlooked the possibility that Park saw Kato still standing on the north walkway when he saw O.J. going into the house. I just don’t know how I can illustrate it without implying that Kato lied about not seeing O.J. The animation is to show what you would get if nobody lied but made common recall errors that are normally insignificant. Kari picked up on the fact that Kato couldn’t’ have left his room when he said he did unless he stopped by the pool and took a dip or sat down somewhere and contemplated his navel for a few minutes. But just because he got it wrong doesn’t mean he lied. The same goes for Park. These time discrepancies meant nothing before Kato, Park and O.J. learned of the murders – but they RECALLED them in that context.
Park’s testimony UNDER MARCIA’S GUIDANCE demonstrated that he didn’t trust his memory. It also showed that he did trust Marcia’s interpretation of what he saw and didn’t see. That’s why he recalled seeing Arnelle’s SAAB where it wasn’t. Marcia showed him the picture. He sat there billed as a witness to O.J.’s Bronco not being on Rockingham during the time of the murders and O.J. coming back from behind the garage – Marcia’s story. Everybody in the world was watching him, saying how honest he was, etc. But he had memory gaps. He let Marcia (and his mother) fill them.
In all of Park’s accounts of what he saw and when he saw it he indicated a time separation between seeing Kato and seeing O.J. The longest separation (which I show in the animation) is only 20 seconds. The minimum is 15 – about the time it takes to have the conversation with Dale St. John that Park said he had BEFORE he saw O.J. Marcia needed to narrow that gap to the absolute minimum because Kato said he did not see the golf bag that O.J. said he put out by the bench. He could not have missed it unless O.J. lied or Kato was past the bench when O.J. set the bag out. Marcia wanted to show that O.J. lied. Kato’s Walk is what you get when nobody lies but Park tries to squeeze his recollection into Marcia’s story. Park’s “recollection” of seeing Kato on the north path after he saw O.J. go into the house is only a logical extension of Marcia’s story – which Park believed. If he saw O.J. “at the same time” he saw Kato (not 20 seconds apart) Kato had to be standing in the same place. -- Jasper
