[MISSING TEXT]rate the separate points of weakness or conflict in Tommy's previous testimony and behavior which were discussed
[MISSING TEXT]greater length in the accompanying document.)
1. Why did you and Martha brave temperatures of forty degrees and have their [WW] encounter on the grass when access to either a comfortable bedroom, or the van, was a few mere steps away? You told Krebs you met Martha back inside after Andrea left. So was Martha, at this point, willing to fool around with you? If she was, then why did you go outside? If she wasn't, when did she suddenly become willing?
2. You must have been pretty drunk. From your testimony, it looks like you had about seven drinks in the space of two hours. Were you really able to go through the motions of seduction, foreplay, and reached orgasm, all in the space of twenty minutes?
3. We can see that you fooled the polygraph at least twice. We can also see that you fooled the sodium amytal test. That takes some effort. Wouldn't you say that sounds like someone with a pretty high capacity for willful deceit?
4. When you went over to the car where Michael and Martha were listening to music with Jeffrey [Geoffrey] Byrne and Helen Ix, and started chatting Martha up, I imagine Michael was probably upset. When you and Martha started rolling around at the side of the house--in front of everyone--he must have really been steamed. Was this part of your motivation for getting with Martha? What exactly was your motivation? How did Martha respond to you? You must remember at least some of what she said to you at the side of the door and after. Do you remember saying this:
From Dr. Lesse's report: "I spoke to Martha for 5 minutes. Maybe it was two minutes, maybe more."-- " I can't remember what we talked about. I remember when we broke up, she asked whether I wanted to meet later and go out hacking. I told her I couldn't because I didn't have time and I had homework to do."
We know this is untrue. Why did you lie about this? And if you couldn't remember what you and Martha talked about, how come you could so vividly remember this:
"After I gave Andrea the keys, I went up to my room. I spent about 5 minutes with the group before going to my room. I studied English, reading something about log cabins. We were studying the Puritans. I studied for about 5 minutes. Then I needed a book that was in the guest room. It was a book on Lincoln. I was on the third floor and that was downstairs. I was in the guest room for about 5 or 10 minutes and I brought the book back to my room. After another 5 or 10 minutes I went down to Dad's room to watch television with Ken and then I went back to to sleep."
Could you remember it because it never happened? [sic] Because it is also a lie?
5. We know that you lied to the police. " They questioned me about whether I had any sexual feelings or sexual desires or any sexual activity with Martha or whether I approached her sexually. I didn't like that because that's not like me and my family. They questioned me in pretty hard terms, terms we don't commonly use. They questioned me many times with regard to the details of what had taken place and what I had done." And you didn't tell them the truth. Why? It must have taken a lot of guts to keep lying to the police like that?
6. Why did you lie to Julie at 1:30 am? She says you told her that the last time you saw Martha was at 9:30 by the side of the house. If you knew nothing about Martha's murder then why did you begin your pattern of deception at that point? I mean, if you were working under the assumption that Martha was alive and well, why would you tell a blatant lie that Martha would inevitably contradict when she finally got home? What was the big deal Tommy?
