2.) This whole DeeDee narrative is going to be the undoing of Ben Crump. Stanley McDaniel Manor Blog has an interesting note on the Dee Dee manipulation. Outlining something previously overlooked. In the FDLE interview report (which we thought a little odd at the time) Kenneth Wayne Moore of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement specifically outlines that Dee Dee was/is reported as a minor at the time the report was filed.
Note at the very bottom of page #1 All personal information relating to this “girlfriend” has been blacked out in the report. BUT THE REPORT SAYS : “The information in this report contains information about a JUVENILE that may be privileged or confidential and exempt from disclosure under applicable law.” We now know that “Trayvon’s girlfriend” is Dee Dee, AKA Witness 8, even though she was coy at best about her relationship with Martin during the interview.
SA Moore also wrote that when they arrived at the location of the interviews (that too was redacted), Benjamin Crump was there and Daryl Parks and Natalie Jackson arrived sometime thereafter. Fulton gave a statement at about 1540 and Tracy Martin gave a statement sometime after 1630, but they had some difficulty locating Dee Dee, who was finally found and “escorted to” Fulton’s home where she gave an interview sometime after 1830.
This is a most unusual report. Officers often assist fellow officers from other jurisdictions, but seldom write reports about it. They virtually never write reports that essentially say they drove them around and helped them find a few people. In fact, officers providing such minimal assistance commonly write reports only if they actually participated in some law enforcement function, in which case, they document exactly what they did.
In this case, SA Moore essentially says: “I picked these guys up at the airport, drove them to a place where they interviewed a couple of people, and when they were done, drove them back to the airport,” making a very odd police report indeed. Moore does not say or imply he did anything else. He does not say he sat in on any interviews. He does not say whether he waited where the interviews took place, or merely returned when they were done to provide transport. He uses passive language, giving no hint that he did anything affirmative to find anyone, or even to escort Dee Dee to Fulton’s home.
On the other hand, police officers often write reports to cover their tender posteriors, particularly if they suspect those posteriors might be in danger of exposure. If that’s the case here, being sure to mention the names of Crump, Parks and Jackson does makes sense. Notice too that the personal information of Dee Dee was redacted, yet those redacting the report let slip one interesting bit of information: Dee Dee was “escorted” to Sybrina Fulton’s residence where she was interviewed.
Keep in mind too that Crump has apparently been playing fast and loose with Dee Dee’s age. It’s possible SA Moore was told Dee Dee was a juvenile, which explains the redactions and aforementioned note about privileged juvenile information. If SA Moore or others in the FDLE subsequently learned they had been played—particularly if they suspected de la Rionda was in on it–that might explain why this document has been released.

It would appear that people within the construct of the FDLE network around this case know something is afoot with the Dee Dee false persona. At least this Agent “Moore” appears unwilling to construct or participate in the construction of dishonest application.
Again yesterday in court, despite BDLR saying he was going to deliver the recording of the 3/19/12 Dee Dee interview – He did not; Not yet. Still. Again. In addition the state continues to obfuscate around what device actually recorded the interview segment Benjamin Crump used.
And it does not go unnoticed that not a single member of the Scheme Team went to the court yesterday. What are they afraid of ? Why ? The TRUTH has nothing to hide, nor does anyone in possession of truthful information.
Why twist in pretzel like contortions around both Dee Dee interviews?
Why Lie about her age?
Why try to hide the original 3/19/12 interview?
Why keep dragging this aspect of discovery out?
Why try to hide the truth instead of plainly speaking it?
We know Matt Gutman has the original, and presumably only full recording of that interview. What is there to hide? and whatever it is, the FDLE has some people within its ranks apparently uncomfortable with the entire Scheme.
