Kerrville's Topix.com...

There have been lots of interesting comments over the last year Kerrville's Topix.com about the Baker case. This one is new and along the lines of A LOT of what I've been hearing over the last 2 years.

From "neighbor in Woodway, TX":

"I lived down the street from Matt and Kari in Hewitt. Matt was arrogant and weirdly immature for a minister his age. Even after Kari died. We felt so sorry for him but when I approached him, he seemed bored with my sentiments for him and his girls. "We'll be fine" is all he said and changed the subject to talk about what our children were doing the next weekend.

And that woman was at his house all the time just a week later. All hours. She was even at the oldest girls slumber party that same month. She had her head on his shoulder and he laid on the couch with his head in her lap. It freaked some of the girls out. That was what made me think Kari didn't die of her own will. Not kari's parents. it was all Matt.

Glad to know people in Kerrville aren't as snowed as the Bakers would have us think."


I saw him too said...

there are sooooooooooo many people who saw him in the few months after kari's death who said his behavior was beyond weird. Talk to the teachers at Spring Valley, people at his church, and Waco Center for Youth. bizarre.

Vanessa jumped out of the white limo Matt rented for Kensi's birthday! We were in shock about this young woman he seemed to parade around school!


In re: Baker giving Kari's cell phone to Vanessa right after Kari's death

“It was stupid,” Baker told the Tribune-Herald in December 2007. “It really was stupid for me to do that. But she was a friend, and she was one of the few people at that point in time who didn’t accuse and who didn’t look at me strange, if that makes sense.”

Yes, Mr. Baker. It really was stupid. Amazingly, incredibly stupid.

No, Mr. Baker. Your explanation doesn't make sense. No. Sense. At. All.

Question to Baker: At the time of Kari's supposed suicide, the majority of people (including her family) accepted what you said and no one was overtly accusing you of anything! In fact, from the numerous posts on this blog and elsewhere, you and Kari had many friends who believed what you told the police. Could your subsequent lame excuse of giving Kari's cell phone to Vanessa be your guilty conscience speaking? Methinks thou dosh protest too much.

My guess is there's something quite damaging in Vanessa's grand jury testimony, and whatever she said is going to sink Baker's wee little boat.

Vanessa was granted immunity in exchange for her grand jury testimony. That immunity speaks volumes! Did she know something ahead of Kari's death, or immediately afterward, that could have caused Vanessa to threatened by the DA as a co-defendant?

Perhaps Baker was "romantically musing" and said something along the lines to Vanessa that Kari would soon be gone and then they could be together. Or perhaps he said something to Vanessa (immediately following Kari's death) that in 20/20 hindsight made Vanessa aware of foul play.

Whatever the reason, the immunity Vanessa was given is sitting in the middle of the room like the proverbial elephant.

(Free legal advice to Mr. Baker: More than one murderer has been convicted because of pillow talk.)

Something is in the works, taking place with Baker's attorney that he's pushing for the grand jury testimony to be available prior to the trial beginning. Perhaps Ellison has come to the same realization so many of us arrived at long ago: Baker is a guilty man!

Maybe Ellison is looking for a way to plead this out as a lesser offense, subject to Baker's full confession. (I can't help but wonder if Ellison is now wishing he'd never taken the case.)

Won't Baker's family and supporters be shocked when the truth comes out? To those who still blindly believe in Baker's innocence, I leave you with this quote:
