Karas said that the judge concluded that any potential prosecutorial misconduct by Champion “was not prejudicial” to Tellis.
The Cell Phone Evidence
Intelligence Analyst Paul Rowlett testified about Chambers’ and Tellis’ phone data, and claimed that phone data put Chambers and Tellis together at the same location just before, or possibly even during, Chambers’ murder. The defense team has questioned Rowlett about the accuracy of the data.
Another troubling point for the defense is the fact that Tellis deleted all the texts and calls between he and Chambers after her death. Tellis, who has always maintained his innocence, stated that he deleted the data because he did not want a dead person’s information in his phone.
The cell phone data appears damning, but according to Karas, cell phone tower pings and other related evidence are not always conclusive — especially in rural areas where there are only a few towers. In these cases, she says, experts have told her that the location of the cell phone can only be narrowed down to an “around two to 10 or 20 square mile area.”

I watched this show all 6 or 7 hours of it over two days. A lot of commercials and repetition to get thru.
- Race and the “Missing White Woman Syndrome”
- The Other Murder
- The “Eric/Derrick” Debate
- The Cell Phone Evidence
- The New Witnesses
There were also SIGNIFICANT differences between the two trials that the second jury wasn’t told about that were dispositive. In my recollection, they mostly went AGAINST the prosecution.
- The shoddy police work around crime scene search may have missed critical and “finding and photographing” the keys certainly was an attempt to fabricate evidence.
- The testimony of the first responders in the first trial was very authentic; in the second, they all sounded rehearsed and coached.
- The cell phone data was unbelievable and unreliable.
- Where did they dig up the witness that supposedly gave him a ride? Her testimony had to be the result of a quid pro quo from the prosecutor for her son.
- They couldn’t find the guy that found the keys was totally bogus.
Now this fellow definitely was not the sharpest tack in the box, and probably was a “bad guy” for other things, but the prosecution failed to make a good case.
I especially like the candid gang leader who said: “If he did it, he was a pretty dumb ***** to think he could burn up a white woman in Mississippi and get away with it.”
I don’t think the prosecution came close to proving their case and how can prosecutorial misconduct NOT prejudice the case against the defendant.
Watch it and see how incompetent the Gooferment politicians and bureaucrats can be. And be thankful that you’re not their target.,
