There was no hearing today (February 9) for Majestik Gillespie. It took two hours to find this out. I went by the Circuit Court Office and a motions hearing for Darious Fitzpatrick is scheduled for March 3. The trial date for Fitzpatrick in the murder of Gordon Schaffer is (for now) June 26.

[N.S.: The previous night, David had written,]
I'm going to attend the Gillespie hearing tomorrow morning. If I can, I'll go by the Circuit Court Office and see if I can find out about a trial date for Fitzpatrick.
Good point about the media blackout after the initial publicity. Remember the Pearcy Massacre? The same thing.

[N.S. I long ago lost count of how many times David has driven out to the court house, in search of information on this case, or to attend scheduled hearings, which rarely seem to take place. It’s a thankless job, and I thank him from the bottom of my heart for his time and labors.
Aside from defendants and victims’ families, court houses are full every day with people who are there, because they are paid to be. David is there, because he’s on a mission.]
