Socialite Rebecca Grossman Attempts to Shift Blame in Murder Trial
In a sensational turn of events, the murder trial of Rebecca Grossman, accused of a fatal car crash that claimed the lives of two young brothers, has taken an unexpected twist.
Grossman’s defense team is pointing fingers at her alleged secret lover, former Dodgers’ pitcher Scott Erickson, suggesting he might have been responsible for the tragic incident.
Defense Claims Failure in Investigating Alleged Lover’s Involvement
During court proceedings, Rebecca Grossman’s lawyers alleged that law enforcement failed to properly investigate Scott Erickson’s potential involvement in the incident.
The defense argues that Erickson’s black Mercedes, reportedly chased by Grossman, was not thoroughly examined, raising questions about the sequence of events.
Allegations Surrounding Scott Erickson’s Vehicle Disputed in Court
Grossman’s attorney, Tony Buzbee, claimed that a sheriff’s investigator did not inspect Erickson’s vehicle and relied on his word regarding the car he was driving.
Buzbee suggested that Erickson had been inside a different vehicle on the day of the crash, challenging the integrity of the investigation.
Contradictory Testimonies and Lack of Evidence Questioned
Deputy District Attorney Ryan Gould responded, stating that there was no evidence supporting the defense’s claims, and the origin of the photograph that Buzbee intended to present was unknown.
The court witnessed a dispute over contradictory testimonies and a lack of concrete evidence regarding Erickson’s alleged involvement.
