- Then we have the 4 emails sent to Grant Roy, several signed by Joe, but all forwarded via "myspace.com/harlowcuadra"
- Harlow Cuadra seems to do most of the talking during the Black's Beach tapes, while Kerekes appears to be more in 'third person'.
- Joe states in his infamous jailhouse interview with the Times Leader that Harlow Cuadra had in fact gone to Bryan Kocis' house and saw a dead body, but that he (Joe) stayed back at the motel doing emails.
... and with the exception of Joe using his I.D. to check-in at the Fox Ridge Inn, and being present at the gun shop... you'd almost have to wonder if Joe had any involvement at all. Now I'm certainly not saying that's the case, but it sure is interesting to see how much Harlow is mentioned in the affidavit and evidence, yet how little there is in regards to Joe.
Makes you wonder if Joe knew what he was doing to ensure that if they got caught... it would be Harlow that took the fall.
