ProsecutorJason Napoli questioned the defense team's private investigator David Olasky about his investigative tactics. He questioned why he did not record his interviews. "Who is the only person who got out of the car with a gun in their hand?" Napoli asked him. "I think there are still question about that," Olasky answered. Fuller questionedOlasky again. He askednoted the witness who talked to Olasky might ahve been wrong about Ceravolo going into the Mercedes, but asked if that "changed the fact" that the witness,Warnisha "Weedy" Hudson, said she saw a "white male" go into the Mercedes and remove something she thought was a gun. Olasky testified he still believedthat Hudson some someone go into the Mercedes and remove something. 4:20 p.m. David Olasky, the private investigator who John Fuller and Jay Daniels contracted with to work on the case, spoke about his interview with witness Warnisha "Weedy" Hudson during questioning from prosecutor Jason Napoli. Olasky said she saw someone "reach in the vicinity of the glove compartment and pull what she thought was a gun out of there." He testified he asked her, "Are you sure it was a gun," to which he said Hudson told him, "'it looked like a gun, about the size of a gun, it was black.'" Olasky said Hudson told her family about what she saw at the scene that night after she saw Ceravolo on television. He said her family then encouraged her to tell Hayes' attorneys. One of those family members called one of the attorneys and Daniels put Olasky in touch with Hudson. Olasky said he showed Hudson a photo of Ceravolo, and she identified him as the person she saw take a gun out the Mercedes. Napoli asked Olasky what he thought after the video surveillance surfaced showing Ceravelo at Windsor Court. Olasky answered: "There were some things about her story that were true. There were some things the FBI said...checked out. Some things that...she got wrong." Olasky said after he realized there was video showing Ceravolo at the Windsor Court, he did not think Ceravolo went in the Mercedes. Napoli asked him what Olasky did about setting the record straight after having publicly accused Ceravolo of a federal crime. "I believe that she saw someone remove something from the glove box," Olasky said. "I don't believe she was lying. I don't believe she was making things up...eye witness identifications are not always reliable." Napolireferred toOlasky's earlier testimony when he said Olasky said he has a "decentsense of when someone tells you something wrong." Napolithen asked him if he wouldreconsiderthat statement after the inaccuracies of Hudson's statement. 4 p.m. Hayes' attorney John Fuller calls the defense'sfirst witness: David Olasky, a private investigator Fuller paid to work on the case. Olaskysaid he talked to about 15 people related to the case. Olasky names Fuller's "mystery witness" as Warnisha "Weedy" Hudson.
