In Wednesday’s edition of “Headlines” on Dennis & Callahan, Steve Buckley brought three stories to the table as he filled in for Kirk Minihane.
- The first story related to the Aaron Hernandez case, with a Boston Herald report noting that some evidence — including multiple cell phones and iPads – cannot be used because the police overstepped their search warrant’s boundaries.
“An iPhone 5, a BlackBerry Bold cellphone, and three iPads with GPS tracking capability were taken from Hernandez’s North Attleboro home June 18, 2013, by police investigating the slaying of Odin L. Lloyd the day before,” wrote the Boston Herald. “Judge E. Susan Garsh said the warrant let police look for one cellphone with Hernandez’s Connecticut number and did not apply to the five devices, or make any mention of GPS devices.”
Despite the apparent break for Hernandez, all three hosts remained confident that the remaining admissible evidence — including video of Hernandez walking into his home with a gun after Lloyd’s death — would be enough to get him convicted.
“There’s still a lot of evidence,” Gerry Callahan said. “He’s not walking.”
- The second story was about the recent marriage of Boston Marathon bombing surviver James Costello marrying Krista D’Agostino, his nurse who helped him recover through surgery and rehabilitation.
“It’s a classic 1940s movie,” Buckley said. “He was banged up, he went to the hospital, he met the nurse. His eyes met her, her eyes met his, something clicked and they got storied.”
“That’s a nice story,” John Dennis responded.
- The final story focused on the reaction to Monday’s tribute to Robin Williams at the Emmys. One of the videos shown saw Williams borrow a woman’s scarf, wrap it over her face and act like a woman from Iran, which led some on Twitter to call the video offensive.
They then played the video, with all three finding the video harmless.
“That sounds awfully offensive,” Callahan said sarcastically. “I can’t believe they let that through the censors.”
