Dalia Dippolito’s body language expert not allowed to testify in murder-for-hire trial

  Dalia Dippolito’s body language expert not allowed to testify in murder-for-hire trial A facial recognition analyst will not be allowed to testify in Dalia Dippolito’s 3rd murder-for-hire trial, except possibly to rebut state evidence. After testifying for almost two hours about her background, training, and analysis of Dippolito’s undercover videos, Susan Constantine-Perfido concluded Dippolito didn’t really mean it when she told a supposed hitman she wanted her husband killed.“A lot of times people say things but their facial expressions betray them, because they don’t believe them, this is what that was, she didn’t believe what came out of her own mouth,” said Constantine-Perfido.

TULSA, Okla. — Family members of a black man who was fatally shot by three Oklahoma law enforcement officers say he had stopped taking medication in April to treat a bipolar disorder and was in declining mental health since the recent death of his father.

The mother, brother and two sisters of 29-year-old Joshua Barre told The Associated Press in interviews Saturday that authorities could've used other means to restrain him because they knew about his mental state since May 31.

Joshua's mother, Etta, says deputies had time to call for backup Friday because they followed him as he walked more than 10 blocks from his house to the convenience store where he was shot.

Two Tulsa County deputies and a Tulsa police officer opened fire when they discovered he was carrying knives.
