The corruption aspect of this case began when FBI agents realized they had gotten a confession from the wrong person
It then snowballed when FBI Special Agent Pickens, present at the autopsy with Detective Francis and Detective Byington, realized that the victim had been alive much longer than suspected, and might have survived if the FBI agents involved had not been trying to outplay local police.
The prosecutor was contacted, along with Sim Gill's assistant Angela Miklos, and evidence began to 'evolve'.
Shortly after that, DNA evidence confirmed the wrong person was being held in jail.
From there the Utah legal system was used as a blunt object to make sure the public would not find out.
This page will look at the specific individuals involved in various types of corruption in this case, and rank them on their level of corruption.
There are several types of corruption involved, and each person will be ranked from 1 to 5 emojis based on the type and level of corruption, and ranked separately on their corruption skills, in other words are they skilled at being crooked?
Those individuals who cannot be identified yet will be listed by their positions. For example a person can infer that high level administrative personnel at the FBI and in the Utah Court system engaged in extremely corrupt behavior, but they can only be identified by their job position at this point.
= professional corruption, people who prioritized keeping their job, and promotions, over doing their job.
= professional silence, people who ignored corruption or quietly cooperated with it.
1) DA and Prosecutors
2) FBI agents including 'hidden' supervisors
3) Evidence technicians, forensic bureaucrats and corporate forensic entrepreneurs
Brief Corruption Overview
1) Hser Ner Moo disappeared and several police agencies responded. The FBI's main focus was on creating a scenario in which they solved the crime and graciously handed it to local police. They became aware early that something had happened the afternoon of March 31, and they let local police follow dead ends so that the FBI would 'solve' the case. For example the FBI knew that apartment #472 was occupied, and they knew the injured girl, or body, was probably there, but they let local police believe the apartment was empty. The girl lay injured in #472 for many hours as the FBI was playing this game.
2) DA Lohra Miller knew almost immediately that there were serious problems with the evidence and investigation, and she deferred to law enforcement which was focused on image control.
3) When Lohra Miller left office in 2010 and was replaced by Sim Gill, the new District Attorney realized that the evidence did not point to Esar Met but following the facts would result in the FBI paying a high price. He postponed the case for almost 4 more years until a trial was forced. He worked extensively with federal law enforcement in other capacities and was under pressure from 'friends' at the FBI and other agencies.
4) Many people in Utah media knew from their law enforcement connections that there were big problems in the case, and they carefully restricted their reporting to avoid mentioning these problems. Many of the hearings where problems were laid bare had several Salt Lake City reporters present, and those reporters would not publish information which appeared to exculpate Esar Met unless such information was first published by an outside reporter. Marissa J. Lang appears to have been the only reporter that published material overtly challenging the prosecution narrative without waiting for a group of people to form around the material first. https://twitter.com/Marissa_Jae/status/423535460283990016 She was the only reporter who asked to be present at jury selection, and it's possible that the overt jury stacking gave her an early clue something was not right.
As an interesting sidenote to this last point, the judge made a mysterious comment implying that in that area it is not proper for reporters to witness jury selection. The judge seemed a bit concerned about that reporter being present and seemed to suggest that other reporters knew better. This recording will be added later with speculation about why jury selection appears to be a sensitive topic among judges in that area.
One small part of the issue may be guessed by the absurd demographics of the initial jury pool. They clearly did not represent a random selection from the local population, and obviously somebody hand selected the initial pool from which the jury was selected. The percentage of people with small children and the percentage of prison employees was astronomical relative to the population. But there are other things that stand out.
1) https://tribalcash.org/images/mp3/clip1590.mp33 Prosecutor, same evidence tech. The first DNA report done said that there was no DNA found on the 'rape kit' DNA test. This conflicted with the prosecution narrative right after the crime, so the report was changed to indicate that there was DNA but not enough quality or quantity to test. The public was never told about this. This subject is developed further in other clips. The prosecutor knows that there was zero DNA found on the 'rape kit', but he wants the jury to imagine that there may have been some. More info https://tribalcash.org/images/mp3/clipcoderkit.mp3
