The morning Nancy disappeared, Brad made a trip to the Harris Teeter grocery store to buy milk for their daughter. During the trial, the store surveillance video was shown to the jury and prosecutors made the suggestion that the shoes he was wearing that morning were “never recovered”. They emphasized it in their closing arguments about half a dozen times. This wasn’t accurate though because when asked, the detective stated that he never even asked Brad for the shoes. It’s not in any police notes that they ever searched for those “missing” shoes. The trial was so long and the state really dragged it out so much that I believe the jurors lost sight of important facts, and this was one of them. What would have happened if police had requested and analyzed them the very day the video was available, while Nancy was still missing? I believe they would have determined that there was no trace of him ever being at the Fielding Drive site. This is one of many examples of poor police work in this case. Shame on the prosecutors for giving the false impression that Brad disposed of the shoes, knowing that police never even asked for them or looked for them.
