By Aaron Humes: After Commissioner of Police Chester Williams effectively declared an “all points bulletin” for his former deputy Marco Vidal to answer to claims of possible evidence tampering, the ex-senior cop visited his fellows today with attorney Senior Counsel Godfrey Smith to explain himself, according to multiple media reports.
Vidal produced an audio recording of the conversation he said he had with the storeowner – which Smith says shows that he was making innocent inquiries in a calm tone – and certainly did not ask for any surveillance video to be deleted.
Senior Counsel Smith says Vidal made the visit to try to piece together the events of December 31 in support of his nephew Corporal Elmer Nah’s alibi for the triple murder of Jon, Vivian and David Ramnarace.
The conversation was held in Spanish. According to Vidal’s account which he prepared for police, he and two others visited the shop around midday on Saturday; it is located not far from Corporal Elmer Nah’s own residence.
Vidal asked the shopkeeper, who said she was not at home on the 31st, to look at the footage to see who passed the shop on foot or in vehicle going or coming between 6 pm and 10 pm.
The shopkeeper reportedly replied that her daughter was sleeping in the room where the recordings are stored and that they could return at 2 that afternoon. They discussed other matters including how long the recordings last, but he does not indicate whether they in fact went back to review the video.
Police investigations presumably continue.
