1996 - Earring found with unidentified substance that resembled 'blood' in Susan Flores' driveway.
Earring turned over to SLO Sheriff's Department.
Somehow, that earring was lost.
SLO Sheriff's Dept. lied to the Smart family about the location of the earring several times.
Cornered - they finally admitted the earring was 'lost'.
I 100% believe that the earring was 'lost' before any lab testing could confirm if the 'red substance' was actually 'human blood'.
2018: Formal complaint filed with the SLO Sheriff's office regarding lost earring.
1st Official Response: 'discipline records were 'poor' back then and I truly have no answers.'
2nd Official Response from SLO Sheriff's Office: "This happened way before Sheriff Parkinson took office. Records no longer exist regarding the earring but that they were told that 'the Officer involved was identified and disciplined.
That officer is now retired.
Identify and Polygraph
Since that officer has been 'identified' they need to bring him/her into the Sheriff's Department and polygraph him/her regarding the lost earring.
The Smarts need to have their own representation present during the polygraph to assure 100% transparency in this matter since that was completely denied them back in 1996 when it really mattered.
This is not Sheriff Parkinson's fault. If he was running the show back in 1996 - this entire fiasco would have been dealt with very differently.
He is, however, the current Sheriff so this properly lands on his desk.
The Smarts deserve to know whether that earring was 'lost' or 'tossed'.
To just say that 'records of discipline' were poor back then we truly have no answers is not good enough.
Spend your time thinking about the timeline of events regarding Susan's backyard re: the search for Kristin.
Understand that my approach to getting Susan Flores' yard dug up is foundationally anchored to the fact that past law enforcement documents have already authorized search warrants that have yet to have been carried out properly. I think that if you keep this in mind - I really think that the password will be easier for you to figure out.
