In District Court Tuesday, Deputy Fire Chief Juan Pacheco testified he was the incident commander at a crash scene in Overlook Park on Dec. 4, 2005.
Thomas Edward Granich, 32, was found dead at the bottom of the canyon that Sunday morning and his wife Penny, now 35, is being charged.
Pacheco detailed a number of articles he collected at the scene and turned over to police.
“I do remember retrieving a couple of LANL security badges, LANL papers that we’re real sensitive about – I think it was study material for a couple of sites … I remember retrieving her ID and I think it was a purse.”
Pacheco recalled seeing a woman’s shoe on the floorboard of the 2004 Dodge truck that came to rest on its wheels in a creek bed some 350 below the canyon rim.
The passenger seatbelt was in the unused position, Pacheco said.
He also remembered the driver’s seat was reclined backwards and thinking it had been done after the accident.
Defense attorney Mark Donatelli jumped on that comment saying it hadn’t been in previous testimony given April 13, 2008.
