Also, Cassie was essentially getting this info in a kind of confession which might not be admissible. Since Cassie really didn't have any knowledge that Ava had anything to do with the murder (that we heard), Boyd and Ava would have been better off leaving the body be.
Ava is caught red handed but her possession of the body could also implicate the new sheriff and the Cloverhill mortician so that will be interesting.
Boyd's big mistake was letting the body get dumped in the 1st place ,that & letting too many people know what was going down , had they just held on to body without Ava even around it at any time . Things would be better . The idea was just replace the body .
Boyd does have a track record of mistakes , this is not the 1st time he made a dumb move .
Life was never gonna be easy for Boyd & Ava anyway, Did Ya all expect they were gonna ride off ,get married ,buy a big house & be just regular folks ?
L O L .
Not in any E. L. story line would that Ever happen
," Ellen May is just too Lazy to shut-up ", I loved that line !
As far any statements from Cassie that scene where Ava,Cassie & Ellen May @ the revival tent , would hold up in court as that was a 1st hand confession by Ava not a hearsay statement . Those type of conversations are admissible , Cops use those kind of events all the time .
Unless Boyd gets some sorta of leverage on Ellen May to say the conversation never happened , Ellen May is gonna agree with Cassie's statement of what was said or vice virsa
