The trial of Karen Read, a Mansfield woman accused of murdering her Boston police officer boyfriend, John O’Keefe, continued with intense scrutiny of DNA evidence and cell phone data. Read, 44, faces second-degree murder charges for allegedly striking O’Keefe with her SUV while intoxicated. DNA Evidence Analysis The courtroom heard from multiple forensic experts regarding DNA analysis. Andre Porto, a forensic scientist at the Massachusetts State Police Crime Lab, performed DNA testing on several pieces of evidence. Porto testified that DNA from the passenger side taillight of Read’s SUV contained a mixture from three individuals, including O’Keefe. “When I compared it to O’Keefe’s DNA profile, it was 510 nonillion times more likely to be from O’Keefe than not,” Porto stated. However, hair found on the SUV’s rear panel did not have sufficient human DNA for conclusive testing. Similarly, a piece of glass from Read’s car bumper and samples from a broken drinking glass at the scene did not yield definitive DNA profiles. Tess Chart, a forensic DNA analyst specializing in mitochondrial DNA at BODE Technology, provided additional insights. She tested hair found on the SUV, comparing it to O’Keefe’s mitochondrial DNA. “The mitochondrial DNA profile from the sample was consistent with the mitochondrial DNA profile obtained from John O’Keefe,” Chart said. This testing method, inherited maternally, excluded 99.895% of the U.S. population as possible contributors. Cell Phone Data Examination State Police Detective Lt. Brian Tully testified on cell phone location data, illustrating Karen Read’s movements on the night of O’Keefe’s death. Tully explained that while exact locations couldn’t be determined, general areas were identified based on cell phone antenna connections. “Between 12:33 a.m. and 6:03 a.m., Read’s cell phone records showed 53 calls to O’Keefe’s cell phone,” Tully revealed. Surveillance footage and cell phone data suggested Read traveled near critical locations but did not directly proceed to her destination when searching for O’Keefe. Defense Challenges Evidence Defense attorney Alan Jackson cross-examined Tully, questioning discrepancies in reports and the failure to search inside the house at 34 Fairview Road. Jackson pointed out inconsistencies in the number of tail light plastic pieces found at the scene. “Where did the extra two pieces of plastic come from?” Jackson asked, highlighting potential errors in evidence handling. Tully admitted to possible mistakes but defended the investigation’s integrity. Jackson also challenged the cell phone location data’s accuracy, suggesting it was “physically impossible” for Read’s phone to move at the implied speed based on antenna connections. Prosecution’s Stand Norfolk County prosecutors allege Read struck O’Keefe with her SUV while intoxicated, leaving him unresponsive in frigid temperatures. State Police Detective Lt. Tully testified about a piece of clear tail light plastic with abrasions consistent with injuries on O’Keefe’s body. “I’d be comfortable in saying the marks on Mr. O’Keefe are consistent with—” Tully began before being interrupted by a defense objection. Defense’s Argument Read’s attorney, David Yannetti, maintains her innocence, arguing that others are responsible for O’Keefe’s death. The defense asserts that discrepancies in the evidence and investigative procedures undermine the prosecution’s case. As the trial continues, testimony and evidence examination remain critical. Judge Beverly Cannone has dismissed court for the day, with the trial on schedule. The court will reconvene to further investigate the circumstances surrounding John O’Keefe’s tragic death.

The trial of Karen Read, accused of the second-degree murder of Boston Police Officer John O’Keefe, continued today with pivotal testimonies from key figures in the investigation. The courtroom saw dramatic moments as defense attorney Alan Jackson scrutinized the integrity of the investigative process led by Massachusetts State Police Trooper Michael Proctor and State Police Detective Lt. Brian Tully. Testimony resumed with Massachusetts State Police Trooper Michael Proctor taking the stand. Proctor faced questioning about a group chat with eight high school friends, where he shared details of the investigation, including the victim's name. Proctor admitted that 16 hours into the investigation, he had concluded that Read was responsible for O’Keefe’s death, despite not having visited the crime scene or interviewed key witnesses. Defense attorney Alan Jackson highlighted this as evidence of Proctor's bias and lack of thoroughness. **Defense Digs into ‘Unprofessional’ Texts** Proctor was questioned about derogatory texts he sent about Karen Read, referring to her in dehumanizing terms. Jackson pointed out that these messages showed a preconceived notion of Read’s guilt, which Proctor denied, insisting that the investigation was guided by evidence. **Gaps in State Police Investigation** Jackson delved into investigative lapses, such as not reviewing all phone data or canvassing relevant areas for surveillance footage. Proctor acknowledged some gaps but defended his methods, stating they did not affect the investigation’s integrity. The defense pointed out Proctor’s early focus on Read, questioning whether other suspects were properly considered. **Pressure on Medical Examiner** Defense attorney Alan Jackson turned his questions to a report by the Chief Medical Examiner’s office in April 2022 that O’Keefe’s manner of death could not be determined. Proctor texted another state trooper about the medical examiner’s determination: “Of course it’s undetermined. She’s a whack job.” Jackson pressed Proctor about attempting to get the medical examiner to rule O’Keefe’s death as a homicide, which Proctor denied. **Questions About Trooper Proctor’s Relationship with the Albert Family** The defense focused on potential conflicts of interest, questioning Proctor about his sister’s friendship with witness Julie Albert and their communication during the investigation. Jackson presented text messages indicating a close relationship and alleged that Proctor used his sister as an intermediary. Proctor denied any conflict of interest, asserting that his professional conduct remained intact. Jackson highlighted gaps in the investigation and questioned Proctor’s impartiality and thoroughness. The defense attorney suggested that Proctor had a preconceived narrative and did not thoroughly investigate other potential suspects. Proctor reiterated that the investigation was conducted with the utmost integrity and that evidence pointed solely to Read. **Detective Lt. Brian Tully Takes the Stand** State Police Detective Lt. Brian Tully, the unit commander for the Norfolk County state police detective unit, provided crucial testimony. Tully recounted receiving a call at 7 a.m. on Jan. 29, 2022, from Sgt. Yuri Bukhenik regarding Officer John O’Keefe's critical condition. Recognizing the gravity due to O’Keefe’s status as an active Boston police officer, Tully coordinated with then-Canton Police Chief Kenneth Berkowitz and Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey. They collectively decided that state police would lead the investigation to avoid any conflicts of interest, with Canton police offering support and resources. Prosecutor Adam Lally questioned Tully about inappropriate text messages sent by Trooper Proctor, expressing displeasure and admonishing Proctor for his conduct. The jury was shown photos of evidence collected, including O’Keefe’s shoe and pieces of plastic found at the scene. Want to listen to ALL of our podcasts AD-FREE?

In the podcast episode "Hidden Killers With Tony Brueski," psychotherapist and author Shavaun Scott discusses the ongoing trial of Karen Read. The conversation highlights numerous inconsistencies and questionable actions in the prosecution's case against Read, leading to significant doubt about her guilt. Scott explains that the expectation for law enforcement and prosecutors to present an impeccable case is not being met, especially with the mishandling of key evidence such as the reversed video footage. The discussion explores the possibility of either sloppy police work or a misguided attempt by the police to make the case against Read more compelling, which ironically raises more red flags and doubts. Scott suggests that Read might not have intentionally murdered John O'Keefe but was too intoxicated to remember hitting him accidentally. The conversation also delves into the broader issue of the justice system prioritizing winning over uncovering the truth, leading to distortions and potentially unjust outcomes. They examine specific pieces of evidence, such as the glass and hair found on Read's SUV, and how these details contribute to the reasonable doubt surrounding the case. Main Points - The prosecution's case against Karen Read is fraught with inconsistencies and mishandled evidence. - The reversed video footage presented by the prosecution undermines their credibility. - There is a significant expectation for law enforcement to present a flawless case, which is not being met in this trial. - The possibility of either sloppy police work or intentional manipulation of evidence is discussed. - Read might not have intentionally killed O'Keefe but was too intoxicated to remember the incident. - The justice system often prioritizes winning over discovering the truth, leading to distorted cases. - Specific evidence, such as glass and hair on Read's SUV, raises more questions than answers, contributing to reasonable doubt. #HiddenKillersWithTonyBrueski #ShavaunScott #KarenReadTrial #JohnOKeefe #JusticeSystem #PoliceWork #ReasonableDoubt Want to listen to ALL of our podcasts AD-FREE?

In the podcast episode of "Hidden Killers With Tony Brueski," retired FBI Special Agent Jennifer Coffindaffer discusses the perplexing aspects of the ongoing trial of Karen Read. The conversation delves into the unusual evidence and procedural anomalies that have raised questions about the case. Coffindaffer highlights the significant evidence for the prosecution, such as taillight fragments embedded in John O'Keefe's clothing, which she argues are difficult to dismiss as part of a conspiracy. She explains the logistical challenges of explaining certain evidence, like stray hairs and glass fragments, suggesting practical reasons for their presence. The defense's efforts to create reasonable doubt are acknowledged, yet Coffindaffer maintains that the evidence against Karen Read remains compelling. The podcast explores whether there could have been an attempt to frame Read more convincingly, but Coffindaffer dismisses the likelihood of a large-scale conspiracy, emphasizing the logical implausibility of such a scenario.
