Evidence Log 41/284
DMS 1-21 Checked In

Looking at the Properties of the photos taken by Smith there’s a problem. The time of the photos is off. I think the time of the camera is an hour ahead. This would mean that photo DSC_0037(Cell phone with marker #7) was taken at 9:04 so we know the phone was outside at that time. Below are the cameras, settings and times of all of the photos that were released in the first batch.

Diana Smith says she arrived on scene at approximately 7:55 and did a walkthrough of the area where she was shown where evidence was found by officers. Leon Ciesla says he arrived on scene at approximately 8:10 and did a walkthrough of the scene with Smith, perhaps it was the same walkthrough. After that Smith got her camera and her and Ciesla took photos of the evidence. Then her and Ciesla measured the items on scene and Smith collected them. Smith and Ciesla say VCME arrived, which we know is approximately 9:44, so by that time the evidence found at the scene was collected. Malphurs leaves at 10:10 then Smith and Ciesla look for and find the cartridge case. Neither Smith nor Ciesla say when they leave the scene but Smith says she arrives at the SPD at 11:15 to take photos of George.

Something happens after photo DSC_0037(Cell phone with marker #7). The time, 10:04(9:04), between that photo and the next photo,10:42(9:42), (DSC_0043 Yellow Tarp w/can) we see is 38 minutes. My guess is this is when they measured what they had found and marked so far.

This happens again after photo DSC_0043 (Yellow Tarp w/can) and the next photo we see DSC_0060 (Evidence Markers 5,6,7,Yellow Arrow with evidence removed). The time between those photos is 52 minutes, 10:42(9:42) to 11:34(10:34). My guess is this is when Malphurs was collecting the body and Smith and Ciesla took photos 44-59(Probably of Trayvon) and collected the evidence.

The time of the last photo (DSC_0060 Shell casing with ruler) on scene we see is at 11:42(10:42)

There is also a problem with the time the Evidence Log states DMS 1-21 was submitted. At first I thought it said 10:30(22:30 military time) but you can see there is some sort of correction made with the first number of the time. I think what happened was someone got their military time confused. I think the evidence may have been checked in at 12:30 and someone incorrectly tried to correct it with military time by putting a 2 over the 1 which in reality should have been written 00:30 on 2/27. Smith says that after taking photos of George that Shellie arrived with a change of clothes for him and Smith gave him bags to put his clothes in when he changed. Smith says she arrived to take photos of George at approximately 11:15 so by the time she took the photos, George changed his clothes and Smith tagged all of the evidence it had to have been after 11:30.

I think then the timeline would look like this;

7:55 Diana Smith arrives on scene
8:42 Takes first photo
8:45 – 9:45 Smith measures and collects evidence
9:45 VCME arrives
10:10 VCME leaves
10:10 – 11:00 Smith and Ciesla complete evidence collection.
11:15 Smith arrives at the SPD to take photos of George
11:26 Last photo of George is taken
11:26 to ? George changes clothes
12:30 Smith checks in evidence DMS 1-21
