The hearing held on Monday Otober 6, 2014 resulted in setting a hearing scheduled for Tuesday November 25, 2014 to a a new trial date. The issue of testing physical evidence continues to be central to the delays.
In the meantime, internet sniping continues and the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Dept. continues to leave its motor idling in the Norman Gresham murder case. In October 25, 2013 article appearing on http://www.mymotherload.com, Sheriff Kuntz was quoted as saying, “When I get back to work on Monday, I am going to get my Homicide Investigators together get a full briefing. If it’s what I’m thinking it’s going to be, we will probably make an arrest next week.” Now more than a year later and the survivor and uncooperative witness Jessica Elder claims to be out touring the country in a 5th wheeler and no arrest has been made. Not a mention in the papers and no one in West Point seems to care either.
In a September radio interview Sheriff Kuntz simply said that he believed his department is on the right track in the Gresham case. Apparently it is not an express line.
