Jose Morales told “48 Hours” correspondent Tracy Smith. Detectives Ed Everett, Mike Cohen, and Jose Morales took on a case laced with mystery, starting with that scrawled obscenity – “All Yours F--- You” -- punctuating the already obscene murder scene.“I’ve never seen anything like that before,” Det. Sam had been arrested and charged with murder before. That’s the one thing that I learned, how someone could care so much about everyone else. Exhausted, past midnight sitting at the kitchen table, Steve and Raquel Herr start dialing Sam’s friends, one of whom gives them a phone number for someone they had never heard of -- Daniel Wozniak. ”“As s a friend, as a little brother,” said Freilich.“Did you trust Dan? Wozniak told then-17-year-old Freilich he could make fast money using a bank card, even though the name on the card read “Sam Herr.”“So I went to the ATM, did exactly like he told me and withdrew money, and then came back and gave him the money,” he explained.“So his credit card was still active? “There was an individual pulling money out.”“It wasn’t Sam taking out the money? But then…“He told us that was a lie, and that there wasn’t really a person with a black hat in the car. And you get to assign a weight to that.”“And that’s the beautiful thing about a penalty phase, because it’s not his show anymore. “You’ll see very soon that she is the smarter of the two by far,” Sanders told the court.”But remember, she’s not been charged with committing or planning the murders -- just as an accessory after the fact.“Their strategy is to try to get as much attention away from Daniel Wozniak and what he did,” Murphy explained.“Pin it on Rachel as much as they can,” said Smith.“Yeah. It takes a week before the case goes again to the jury. “Post argument, pre-verdict psychosis.”“Every prosecutor turns into Woody Allen underneath their skin when a jury is out. Steve Herr stood surrounded by combat veterans who had served with Sam. “It is the order of this court that you shall suffer the death penalty.”The trial of Daniel Wozniak finally ends, but the feelings of loss only deepen.“Steve what do you miss? always remembering, never forgetting their beautiful children, Sam and Julie.
full head of hair just covered in blood.”“Deceased, with a gunshot wound to her head,” said Detective Ed Everett. ” Smith asked.“The pieces just didn’t fit correctly at the time,” Det. Detective Cohen had to break the news to Julie’s parents.“’Are you Mrs. Kibuishi, I want you to sit down.’ My hands started shaking,” June Kibuishi explained. And investigators were about to make another discovery. …We learned he was involved in a homicide,” Det Everett said. And when cops checked Julie’s cell phone, it was loaded with messages from Sam begging her to come over.“He was just a very caring guy. ”“Eccos,” Steve Herr affirmed.“So you decided to go there? “I was hoping to see Sam come in, maybe ordering something, or see his car.”“But did you see? ” Smith asked.“Nothing,” Foltz affirmed.“Did you think it was possible that Sam could’ve killed this woman and been on the run? There was never a thought in my mind that that was possible,” he said. One of those guys that you actually wanted to be around. ” Smith asked Freilich.“Yeah,” he replied.“How did Dan treat you? …It was being used in the Long Beach area,” he said. And, he claims, Sam drove off with a mysterious man in a black hat. ” Smith asked.“No guy with a black hat,” Cohen affirmed. Delgadillo: Did you see Julie dead in the apartment? Prosecutor Matt Murphy, who has tried seven other death penalty cases in his career, says his strategy is simple: “It is get the Kibuishis and Herrs on the witness stand so that the jury can understand their pain.”“Ladies and gentlemen, he knew that Sam and Julie were loved,” Murphy addressed jurors. You get to think about those moms and what they have gone through. The only one to speak about Wozniak’s character is a convicted felon, a friend he made in jail.“By all accounts and everything we did in the investigation, he has very nice parents,” Murphy told Smith. They are nice people and they gave him every possible advantage, which to a certain extent is one of the things that makes this case so heinous.” Wozniak’s defense attorney, Scott Sanders, tries to shift blame to Rachel Buffett -- Wozniak’s former fiancée. They call it PAPV psychosis,” he explained, rubbing his eyes. “You’re terrified that you did something to screw it up.”To everyone’s surprise, the jury comes back quickly -- in just a little over an hour:“It’s been a long five-and-a-half years. It would eight more months before the families finally got their chance to address the court and the man who murdered their children. ” Judge Conley then turned to Daniel Wozniak and read his decision. It’s the best thing in the world.” The Herr and Kibuishi families will be forever linked …
