Who is Angelica McFarland And Why Wasn't She Called To Testify In The Murder of David Josiah Lawson?
23-year old Kyle Zoellner was the suspect accused in the stabbing death of David Josiah Lawson. Lawson was stabbed at an off-campus party Easter weekend and died as a result of his injuries.
He was 19.
After five days of preliminary hearings, Zoellner was released two and a half weeks after he was arrested due to a lack of physical evidence.
Angelica McFarland was one of three girls who accompanied Zoellner’s girlfriend Lila Ortega to the party that night.
One of the girls in the group, Naiya Wilkins, testified that McFarland pepper-sprayed Josiah, his girlfriend and the two brothers they were with prior to the stabbing.
In addition, McFarland’s mother was called to the scene and drove Zoellner’s car (that was parked in the driveway right in the middle of the crime scene which also had a bag of chef knives in it) to drop the girls off at home.
On the first day of Zoellner’s preliminary hearings, the District Attorney read a list of potential witnesses that could not be present in the courtroom. McFarland’s name was one of them.
Everyone who was mentioned was called except her.
If McFarland and her mother were at the scene of the crime, why were they never brought to testify? Why weren’t their statements read in court?
What is the DA hiding? What are the detectives hiding? Who is protecting McFarland?
McFarland is the missing link of information and it would be important to know what she saw that night and what role she played in the events that unfolded.
