Court Proceedings on Hold; New Document reveals Brady Rule will not Affect Trial
Welcome to another update on the Ronnie Hyde trial proceedings. We have some small bits of information that may be appealing to some of our followers, however most of this update will more or less be uneventful. We will however, share some information that we have been combing through based on the last court visit that was made by Hyde and his attorneys.
First: We found out on Monday that Hyde will not be back in court for about 5 months. Unfortunately, we are not sure why Hyde isn't going to be back in court until August; but we are aware that there will be more documents coming out in the next few months that should highlight more about the upcoming December trial. Last month, we found out that more than just electronics and books were seized from the Hyde House in Jacksonville Beach. According to news sources, a court document (which we are still trying to find) unveiled that books on serial killers were found along with unidentified skeletal remains and Hyde's Last Will and Testament.
Right now, we are trying to figure out what the remains were and if they will be of any significance in this trial.
Also, a new document has come out, entitled State's Amended Response for Additional Discovery. The document details the names of every witness that will be participating in the trial in some capacity. This includes witnesses, potential living victims, experts, and forensic analysts. Most of the experts will be coming from the FDLE, FBI, National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the University of North Texas Human Identification Lab.
New details are also coming to light about victim CS. Last month, we discussed his relationship to Hyde and who he was, without using his name. Now, with the recent document, it is officially revealed that CS is a family member of the Stalnecker family, perhaps the child of Rev. and Mrs. Stalnecker of Strength For Living Church. Our research suggests that the person in question IS IN FACT a Grammy-Nominated music producer who has worked with high profile musicians.
In the document, it states that: "In an email dated November 28th, 2017...we resolved the case in a way that I would consider to be favorable to Mr. S---------. One of the conditions of his deal is that he fully cooperate with your office." A deal was made to cooperate with this investigation in exchange for Marshall County, Tennessee authorities to drop drug charges that were pressed on CS a month prior. It was also suggested in a previous document that CS will prove to be a crucial witness in the murder investigation and will provide support in response to Hyde's alleged sexual abuses.
When we receive new details, we will make sure to publish them! Until next time, thanks for reading and we shall post more soon!
