How it was possible to not take fingerprints from Martha’s car?

Prosecutor, during the trial in court, said that Martha used the car as a “murder weapon”.

It’s probably the first case in history of European forensics, that nobody has taken fingerprints from the “murder weapon”.

Sticking to the terminology of the prosecutor:
Due to the lack of fingerprints taken from the car – the prosecutor doesn’t even knows who held this alleged “murder weapon”, who pulled the symbolic “trigger”.

Stating, that Martha’s car was used as a “murder weapon” is far from truth.

Why prosecutor’s statement, that Martha’s car was used as a “murder weapon” can’t be true?

Or maybe Garda’s actions were correct?
Fingerprints were not taken from the car, only water samples were taken: both from the river (site of accident) and from the sea (place where Csaba’s body was found).

The cause of Csaba’s death was not car but… water.

Destroyed recordings from two cameras

There are cameras placed on the building of the Lifeboat House in Arklow, standing near the crossroad.

Two of these cameras on 6:00am recorded running Martha.
Martha stops at the wicket, leans against it, she staggers on her legs, squats down.
Then, with her hands raised she runs on.

The same two cameras recorded, 10 minutes earlier, the ride of Martha’s car with her and Csaba.

Recordings from two cameras from 6:00am – preserved.
Recordings from the same two cameras from 5:50am – 10 minutes earlier – are gone.

What happened?
A Lifeboat House employee reviews all recordings only one week after the accident, makes notes and downloads recordings from two cameras from 6:00 am.
After few more days, he gets back to download the recordings of car driving – at 5:50am – but the recordings are deleted from the monitoring system.

What could be seen on those recordings?
(Both cameras were recording from the car passenger side)

  1. The velocity of the car.
  2. In what posiotion was the passenger of the car – Csaba.
  3. Is the passenger (Csaba) not obscuring the direction of travel and the field of view, to the driver (Martha).
  4. Was the passenger (Csaba) behaviour deviates from normal behaviour.

Those recording were especially important because of:

  • proximity of the accident site
  • catching the moment, when Martha decided not to go to the beach, and turns into the road, on which end she intended to turn the car around
  • the intensity of emotions and agression of the passenger, who realized that Martha surely won’t go to the beach, and really makes a turn to get back and drive him home.

Was the destruction of those recordings, from two cameras from a specific hour, a coincidence?

Or maybe the recordings have been preserved, but have not been made available?

Why did not “the defence” call as a witness a person, who reviewed the recordings before their destruction, and knows what was on the recordings?

Lack of recordings from CCTV cameras on Martha and Csaba’s route

There are at least several industrial cameras, on the route which Martha and Csaba drove.

GARDA was concentrating on Martha driving through the center of Arklow, where she was driving alone. Recordings from at least two of the cameras were gathered.
No recording  from the route of Martha driving with Csaba did preserve (or recording wasn’t disclosed).

What would be seen on those recordings?

  1. The velocity of the car.
  2. In what posiotion was the passenger of the car – Csaba.
  3. Is the passenger (Csaba) not obscuring the direction of travel and the field of view, to the driver (Martha).
  4. Was the passenger (Csaba) behaviour deviates from normal behaviour.
  5. Was the driver window open, in the car during the ride.

Is the lack of recordings from CCTV cameras a coincidence?

Lack of content of SMSes from Csaba

Aside from making phonecalls to Martha, Csaba used to write a lot of SMS to Martha, at different hours

SMS only from Csaba from just 2 days:

24th march 2013 – 2:14 am
24th march 2013 – 2:34 am
24th march 2013 – 2:34 am
24th march 2013 – 2:37 am

25th march 2013 – 0:09 am
25th march 2013 – 10:38 am
25th march 2013 – 4:58 pm

Martha’s phonecalls to Csaba were frequently an answer to those SMS.

Csaba, desperate, rejected boy, wrote everything in those messages:
from love confessions to vulgar invectives.

Content of Csaba’s SMS could have been downloaded from Martha’s phone or Csaba’s phone.

It wasn’t downloaded from any of the phones.

Why?

1 grosz coin glued to one of the postcards (sample photo)

Those postcards was treated as  taunting Garda. Altogether with 1 grosz  it was treated as a bribe (1 grosz is a smallest Polish coin of lowest value). Special procedures were started, with special expert laboratory studies involving taking of fingerprints from the postcard and 1 grosz. The sender and a person from Garda, who received the consignment, were being determined.
