"As most of you have read or heard, the District Attorney of McLennan County dropped ALL criminal charges against me (Matt), due to significant lack of evidence."
Not so fast. Here's what the DA's office says about this matter:
(From the March 26, 2008 Waco Trib)
McLennan County District Attorney John Segrest said the murder charge against Matt Baker stands, but his office agreed to an order issued Tuesday that required a refund of the $200,000 bond used to secure Baker's release from jail in October. "It was an act based solely on the passage of time," Segrest said. "It does not dispose of the criminal charges in the least. Those matters are still under consideration by this office."
Mr. Baker, it appears your statement was less than truthful. You received your bond money back because of the "passage of time" and not because of "significant lack of evidence." I also personally called the DA's office and got this information first hand. This "posse" is still ridin'.
"The Dulins continue to slander my name and publicly acknowledge that they will stop at nothing to see this go to trial."
They filed a civil wrongful death suit. The case will go to trial. It wasn't necessary for them to say they would "stop at nothing." Moot point. Done deal. Over and out. You want to talk about slander?!?!?! At least you're alive to defend yourself.
".....and after two years of searching that included exhumation of my wife's body, a Medical Examiner's autopsy showing NOTHING externally caused her death, and the finding of long-term multiple drug use evident in her tissue, they still continue to blame me and cause pain to my family."
Check the arrest affidavit: “Your Affiant has seen an abrasion that is evident on Kari Baker’s nose in the crime scene photographs. There is also the appearance of bruising to Kari Baker’s lips. Your Affiant believes that these wounds are consistent with what would happen if a pillow or another similar object were placed over someone’s face to suffocate them. Your Affiant is aware that there were pillows, including what appears to be a course-woven pillow, in the room where Kari Baker’s body was found.”
This information didn’t come from the autopsy. It came from the crime scene, according to the arrest affidavit. The body was exhumed a month after Kari’s death. Of course, the medical examiner couldn’t make any observations about those particular external features a month after her death. That is all I will say about that!
Mr. Baker says Kari was taking multiple drugs long-term.....that needs repeating.....Mr. Baker says Kari was taking multiple drugs long-term. His invention. Not stated any where else. I have the autopsy in my hand.
Continue to blame you? The evidence is pretty compelling. It is evidence that will decide your fate, Mr. Baker. The Dulins never wanted to believe you were capable of such an act. However, when it became impossible for them to ignore the forensic and other evidence, they were forced to move.
As for causing you pain, well, do you really want to go there, Mr. Baker?
"My family has been told that a quality defense may cost up to $100,000. And attorney can start my defense for a large portion of the total amount. As time progresses more may/will be needed." "As this injustice against me and my family continues our hope rests in your hands. First through prayers and then by any monetary gift that you feel God leads you to share."
I just find this sickening. If only I could say what really needs to be said here. Holding my tongue publicly. Invoking the name of God as you panhandle. Well, may God bless every single cent donated to help fight for and find the truth and the justice that everyone deserves in this case. Everyone.
Mr. Baker has always claimed that he shields and protects his girls from all of this. Well, the video news footage and the video interviews, pictures in the paper left and right and now this. He has both of those young girls sign this letter....this letter that continues to try to denigrate and disparage his wife and their Mother. Their tiny little signatures are hard to look at....but not for the reasons that Matt planted them there. Because of the continued exploitation of innocence.....this time for money.
Included with this letter was a copy of the HCC Journal. Oh, Lord....as for the fiction that flows from this "newspaper/journal," well.....don't even get me started.
