The search for a three year old foster child was re-lived as news reports of him missing, the search and the later suspicion of his foster parents were not to be taken as fact.
Prosecutors played a two hour barrage of news reports for the jury who all told the judge that they didn't see much of the reports surrounding Marcus Fiesel's reported disappearance and the search for the boy that spanned several days. The reports changed scope when police arrested Liz and David Carroll after prosecutors say their live-in girlfriend apparently told police that the couple killed their foster child.
FOX19 News' Chris Shaw reported that the jurors took notes throughout the display and watched as Liz Carroll visually reacting to the video. Carroll trembled and wept as video of her newsconference was played. The 30 year old Clermont County woman made a public plea before the media for someone to step forward with information. She wore the same clothing as she did on that day in August when she allegedly passed out and told police that someone had taken Marcus.
The prosecution also called the Hamilton County Sheriff's Deputy who was first on the scene. Deputy Anthony Gardner told the jury that he was monitoring a stop sign for traffic violations. As he began pursuing a car that ran the stop sign, he got the call to go to Julif's Park after a call came in that a woman had passed out in the park.
Gardner then recalled his contact with David Carroll after he showed up at the park and as the search began. Prosecutors say that Liz and David Carroll had killed Marcus days before and that Liz Carroll's episode in the park was staged to throw law enforcement into a search for Marcus as a missing child.
FOX19's Chris Shaw is following the trial and will have a full report on the day's events on FOX19.com and a full report on the FOX19 Ten O'clock News.
