I think its odd that Ribera was worried about other students being in danger? Why would she think this since Holmes was in custody? What does she know?

@dcCU Because he was friends with 1-2 students in campus. There was a chance they were also dangerous if they were actually associated with Holmes.

Very interesting news Pesos. Now it is more clear regarding witnesses that are not ready to be interviewed by defense. something about a P35 motion. I will need to recheck articles and notes. and there are still so many unexplained loose ends. guess we will have to wait until march. thank you for your response.
