"Why Wasn't The Victims Wife Investigated"?

I am a mother who is trying to save her son.   On 12/31/ 2009 my 15 yr old minor-son was arrested for the murder of his best friends father.  Before he died, the victim named his murderer, he said his own son Nick,  and it is part of the original police report.

Officers found a blood splattered t-shirt upstairs on the floor in the master bathroom floor, This is a shirt known to have been worn by the victims own son and also part of the police report. Nick was named an assessor, Bryce was named the shooter and  planner!

A highly respected forensic psychologist named Doctor Joann Murphey in Texas, wrote a 55 page report in defense of my minor son.  She found my 15 year old minor son NOT culpable for any part in the case against him.  And she found my 15 year old son to be a child. Her report was never presented.

Based on compelling evidence I believe the victims wife to be the mastermind behind the murder of her husband.  I believe she exploited my son and used him and his vulnerabilities for her own financial gain.  A witness came down to the station and told how the victims wife was involved. He said she was giving my minor son drugs, alcohol and money.  As bryce's mother, I want to know why wasn't she investigated?

An Officer requested the victim's wife be investigated, yet there is nothing to show this happened.  According to our laws she should have been arrested and charged accordingly.  When officers arrive the victims wife had blood on her hand, arms and night shirt. She told police that when she heard gun shots in her home she came down stairs to see what was the matter.

After tending to the victim she said she saw the back door open, so she shut it, locked it and went back upstairs in fear of her life. Nick told the police his best friend bryce did this, she said bryce was her sons only friend.

There were a lot of officers called to the victims home that day. From my research it is clear portions of the police report have been redacted, amended and revised on dates other than the date of the crime.  In fact, all pages pertaining to statements taken, including my son's, were written over seven days after the date of the crime.

My son was alone when he waived his miranda rights.  Bryce has a well documented medical, mental, educational and social history. according to our laws he is not allowed to waive his rights, let alone be deemed a competent adult and sentenced plea agreement to 30 years within 7 months after his arrest. Bryce was still only 15 yrs old.

  1. Does blood on ones hands, arms and night shirt keep one from having an accurate gun residue test?

    Why would you touch the back door, door knob and it's lock, if you knew your husband had just been shot... supposedly by an intruder?

    If you heard gun shots in your home and you had a ten year old upstairs with you, why would you leave your child to come down stairs to see what's happening?

    While you were on your way down stairs, was Nick on his way up?
