On March 28, 2012, M-DSPD Supervisor Joesph Cardelle informed IA that while researching the RMS on March 26 per the request of Chief Charles J Hurley he noticed that several sworn personnel entered and accessed reports on Trayvon.

So Cardelle named Hodges and Hadley as accessing Trayvons records and initiated the IA investigation.

Soon into the investigation four more officers are named; Cmdr. Deanna Fox-Williams, Sgt. Bradley Rosh, Sgt. William Tagle and Det. Gylmar Ochoa:(p2 Fox-Williams)

What we don’t see is specifically why Hurley sent Cardelle. What caused Hurley to do this? We see that it was a report that was confidential and potentially released in an unauthorized manner and the timing of when Cardelle was sent to look suggests it was the Frances Robles article reporting the M-DSPD record on Trayvon regarding the 12 pieces of women’s jewelry and screwdriver described as a burglary tool:

“In October, a school police investigator said he saw Trayvon on the school surveillance camera in an unauthorized area “hiding and being suspicious.” Then he said he saw Trayvon mark up a door with “W.T.F” — an acronym for “what the f—.” The officer said he found Trayvon the next day and went through his book bag in search of the graffiti marker.

Instead the officer reported he found women’s jewelry and a screwdriver that he described as a “burglary tool,” according to a Miami-Dade Schools Police report obtained by The Miami Herald. Word of the incident came as the family’s lawyer acknowledged that the boy was suspended in February for getting caught with an empty bag with traces of marijuana, which he called “irrelevant” and an attempt to demonize a victim.

Trayvon’s backpack contained 12 pieces of jewelry, in addition to a watch and a large flathead screwdriver, according to the report, which described silver wedding bands and earrings with diamonds.

It seems it is quite certainly the case from reading the statements we have so far and what we know of Hurley and the system of “protecting the children”, specifically blacks(p.90 Tagle);

that it was that report on Trayvon regarding the jewelry is what caused Hurley to send Cardelle to see who accessed the records. The reason why is because that report being made public could cause further questioning regarding the incident and if pressed it would be discovered this incident was covered up by the reporting M-DSPD officer Darryl Dunn under the direction of Hurley. So Hurley wanted to know which one put the system of “protecting the children”, specifically blacks, at risk by exposing it to the media.

What’s strange is it’s never directly stated from investigators even though the accused are aware of the complaint. They never specifically ask about Robles. Oddly they are more concerned with reporter Rosh Lowe of Channel 7 WSVN but it was Robles of the Miami Herald who broke the story. The investigators even ask Lowe to give a statement to which the news agency lawyer responds(p16 Tagle):

It’s Sgt William Tagle that states it outright near the end of his statement(p85-6):

So the question is who did it? We’ll probably never know. The IA investigation concluded and all parties were cleared.

I’m still looking myself to see all who accessed that record and when. It was Hadley who appears to have had the first look when on Feb 29 he sent Sgt. Randy Smith of the SPD the report of 8 pages. Hadley says the report was titled Criminal Mischief(Case #2011-11477 p49 Tagle)(Case #T-03291 p60 Hodges).

  1. Hadley is black?

    That’s not a misprint/typo/put it on the wrong line/whatever?

    And Lourdes isn’t Hispanic?

    But the real scandal is the obvious anti-Asian hiring bias. (Kidding about that)

  2. It should be possible to identify the (as yet) unidentified witness who reported Williams, Rosh, Tagle, and Ochoa were “potentially” involved in unauthorized activity. Who is the witness? If not recorded in the IA records, how would the witness then learn of the IA investigation? Was the witness information a result of the wide net that IA set to resolve the matter of leaks? Or did it come about in a different manner?

  3. If I am not mistaken, didn’t Sybrina Fulton come out early on saying that TM was never arrested? Didn’t she say something about trying to trash his charatcter, or something like that? Sybrina Fulton worked for another Miami Dade local government agency for many years, the Miami Dade Housing Authority. I’ve had some suspicions from early on, with the Robels report about the jewelry and burglary tool reports that it may be possible that because Sybrina was a higher level local government employee, she was a supervisor, that she may have called in “favors” for her son Trayvon to not be arrested. The jewelry is still sitting in the police department locker from what I understand. I wondered if the jewelry stolen was Sybrina’s, or a family members. They would never tag TM for the theft. They would never try to reclaim it so they didn’t tag TM as the thief.

    Does anyone remember where the story came from that the police had sent out some sort of notices to pawn shops concerning the jewelry? I know a story was included, maybe by Robles, that the pawn shops were notified. If the jewelry never hiot the pawn shops, why would anyone be questioning the pawn shops. I know there was a story about that somewhere.

    • There was a link here that one of us nuts shared showing that before working for housing, she worked for the M-D Schools. It was a few days back.

      • I didn’t see that ejarra, but it only reinforces my opinion that Sybrina pulled her weight to get Trayvon’s incidents to be taken out of the Juvinile Justice system. She, along with Crump et al were very confident early on that Trayvon was never arrested. She dang well knew how he was “protected.”

  4. Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn’t there also a pipe found in that bag as well as the jewelry and screwdriver? Just asking because I didn’t see you mention it above.
