Attorney General Steve Six is asking for the public's help locating Adam Joseph "Rocco" Longoria of Great Bend. He has been identified as a person of interest in the investigation into the death of 14-year-old Alicia Debolt of Great Bend. He is a 36-year-old white male, 5 feet 7 inches, 160 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

GREAT BEND — The girlfriend of the man arrested as a person of interest in the death of 14-year-old Alicia DeBolt is "heartbroken," a family member said today.

Jeff Brown said his sister has lived with Adam Longoria for six or seventh months. Longoria, 36, was taken into custody earlier today. Attorney General Steve Six has described him as a person of interest in the death of Alicia. Longoria later was charged with two crimes not related to Alicia's death.

"She's heartbroken," Brown said of his sister.

"She's torn between both ways — the loss of the DeBolt family and the thought that she was with this man.

"My heart goes out to the DeBolt family,'' Brown continued. "I can't imagine what they're going through, but my thoughts and prayers are with them."

Brown said Longoria told him Wednesday that he had met Alicia once — at a July birthday party for Longoria's girlfriend.

Alicia was last seen Saturday night leaving her house to attend a party. Her body was found Tuesday at an asphalt plant outside Great Bend.

Brown said his sister's black Ford Escape, which Longoria sometimes drove, has been impounded as part of the investigation. He said the Great Bend house where the couple lived for the past three to four weeks had been searched by authorities Thursday night.

Longoria lived with his girlfriend and her children, ages 10 and 12, Brown said.

He said Longoria told him he worked at Venture Corp. —the company that operates the asphalt plant west of Great Bend where an employee found Alicia's burned body Tuesday afternoon.

Longoria was arrested shortly before noon on I-70 west of Salina while driving a 2002 white Ford Explorer, which authorities said was stolen early this morning from Venture Corp.

Six's office said late this afternoon that Longoria had been charged with one count of vehicle burglary and one count of theft of property worth at least $1,000 but less than $25,000. The charges were filed in Barton County District Court.

Longoria will make his first court appearance Monday at 10 a.m.

"As the investigation into the murder of Alicia DeBolt continues, we continue to urge individuals with any information on this case to come forward to law enforcement," Six said in a statement. " Law enforcement continues to use all tools at their disposal to provide justice for Alicia and her friends and family."

A former neighbor of Longoria said he used to live in a house across from Heizer Park. She said he often hung out at the park with young teens, mostly boys. She said the park is a late evening gathering spot for young teens of both sexes.

The former neighbor, who asked not to be identified because of security concerns, said Longoria had some parties at his house where young people attended.

Trent Mermis, owner of Willy J's nightclub on the north side of Great Bend, said investigators earlier this week showed him pictures of Longoria and about three other men and asked whether they had been at his bar the night Alicia disappeared. Mermis said he didn't recall seeing Longoria that night but saw the other men at the club.

Investigators also asked to look through the nightclub's trash, Mermis said.

Alicia DeBolt Missing: Body Found Near Rural Kansas Town Amid Search
By Edecio Martinez Topics Missing

GREAT BEND, Kan. (CBS/KWCH) Police are trying to determine whether a body found a few miles outside of a rural Kansas town is that of 14-year-old Alicia DeBolt, who was reported missing from her home on Saturday.

CBS affiliate KWCH has been told the body discovered Tuesday is not identifiable and that the body was sent to Wichita for an autopsy and positive identification.

Alicia was last seen on August 21 leaving her Great Bend house around 11:00 p.m. with a 19-year-old man to go to a party. According to her mother, Tammy Conrad, the two were supposed to meet another friend at a nearby gas station, but they never showed up.

Her mother later called the police after she missed her midnight curfew.

Great Bend Police Chief Dean Akings told KWCH he couldn't disclose much information, yet. However, the chief said law enforcement officers who had been searching for Alicia were "focusing in a different direction" late Tuesday.

Alicia DeBolt Update: Adam Longoria Charged with Murder
By Naimah Jabali-Nash Topics Daily Blotter

GREAT BEND, Kan. (CBS/KWCH) Adam Longoria, previously dubbed the "person of interest" in the murder of Kansas 14-year-old Alicia DeBolt, was charged with capital murder Tuesday morning in the teen's death, according to CBS affiliate KWCH.

DeBolt's severely burned body was found Aug. 24 behind a rock pile in a construction materials storage yard five miles southwest of the city. The Wichita coroner had to use dental records to identify the young girl's body because it was burned beyond recognition, said Kansas Attorney General Steve Six.

Longoria, 36, was originally charged with one count of vehicle burglary and one count of theft of property worth at least $1,000 but less than $25,000 in connection with a 2002 white Ford Explorer that was reported stolen from Venture Corporation, the asphalt plant where DeBolt's body was found, reports KWCH. But Tuesday morning a judge announced amended charges against Longoria.

He is now charged with capital murder, sodomy of a child, vehicle theft and burglary.OMG!!!

Tammy Conrad, Alicia's mother, told officials that she last saw her daughter around Saturday Aug. 21 around 1:00 p.m. when Alicia left her Great Bend house for a party with a 19-year-old man. The two were supposed to meet another friend at a local gas station, but they never arrived, according to Conrad.

According to KWCH, Six said Tuesday that he does not expect anyone other than Longoria to be charged in the teen's murder.

Longoria's bond was set at $1.5 million.

THANKS WRAP!!!! I have followed this case from day 1. It makes me smile to see it here on my favorite site!!!
I started following this the day she went missing because it was so close to where my 13 yr old grandaughter lived and I was scared for her or any other child of that age at the time.
The woman who moved this monster from prison into her home with her 2 children has since relocated and lives 2 blocks from the grandaughter I was so worried about.

Normal Opening Statements Expected in Kan. Murder Trial

Post by Wrapitup on Thu Mar 29, 2012 8:20 am

By ROXANA HEGEMAN Associated Press
GREAT BEND, Kan. March 29, 2012 (AP)

Attorneys are expected lay out their cases in the trial of a Kansas man accused of killing a 14-year-old girl and burning her body at the asphalt plant where he worked.

Opening statements are set Thursday in the capital murder trial of 38-year-old Adam Longoria. The Great Bend man faces life in prison without parole if convicted of capital murder in the August 2010 death of Alicia DeBolt.

Prosecutors have portrayed Longoria as obsessed with the girl since meeting her at a party.

Jury selection edged closer to completion Wednesday with 44 jurors accepted into the pool after three days of questioning.

A panel of 12 jurors and two alternates will be finalized Thursday once attorneys use their rights to dismiss some jury candidates without having to offer a reason.

GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) — Prosecutors who say an "obsessed" Kansas man killed a 14-year-old cheerleader and burned her body at an asphalt plant must prove aggravating circumstances, such as sexual assault, to secure a capital murder conviction.

Opening statements are set Thursday in the trial of 38-year-old Adam Longoria. The Great Bend man faces life in prison without parole if convicted of capital murder in the August 2010 death of Alicia DeBolt. He also is charged with vehicle burglary and theft related to the crime.

To convict him of capital murder, prosecutors must also prove aggravating circumstances such as sodomy or attempted rape when Alicia was killed. The state is not seeking the death penalty. WHY NOT?????

Longoria's attorneys have not made public their defense strategy but suggested during jury selection that jurors must also be able to consider a lesser charge in the death that would not carry a sentence of mandatory life imprisonment without parole. The defense can delay its opening statement until the start of the defense case later in the trial.

Prosecutors have portrayed Longoria as obsessed with Alicia, who was killed the weekend before she was supposed to start her freshman year of high school.

They claim he lured the teenager into his vehicle after texting her about a party. Her family reported her missing the next day, setting off a search that ended three days later when her charred body, with traces of duct tape on her ankles and face, was found at the asphalt plant where Longoria worked just south of Great Bend.

The community was so shaken by Alicia's death that more than 2,000 people attended a vigil to remember the teen known as "Babygurl."

Jury selection edged closer to completion Wednesday with 44 jurors accepted into the pool after three days of questioning. A panel of 12 jurors and two alternates will be finalized Thursday once attorneys use their rights to dismiss some jury candidates without having to offer a reason.

Testimony in the case is anticipated to stretch into next week. As many as 170 potential state witnesses have been listed, although prosecutors have said they plan to call far fewer than that those to the stand.

Potential jurors were warned during questioning to expect gruesome crime scene photos to be projected onto a screen in the courtroom.

The government also has a trove of text messages Longoria allegedly sent the girl in the weeks leading up to her death, including an exchange the day of her death.

Normal Trial begins in Kansas teen cheerleader's death

The weekend before she would have started her freshman year of high school, 14-year-old Alicia DeBolt bounded out of her house shortly before midnight, ready to party. She never came back home.
The next day, her family reported her missing, setting off a search that ended three days later when her charred body - with traces of duct tape on her ankles and face - was found at an asphalt plant just south of town.



Prosecutors hope a trove of hundreds of text messages, surveillance photos from the convenience store where he bought a half gallon of gas the night of her disappearance, gruesome crime scene photos and DNA evidence are enough to win a conviction.
The community of Great Bend was so shaken by the cheerleader's August 2010 death that more than 2,000 people attended a vigil to remember the teen known as 'Babygurl.'
Attorneys face a daunting task to find jurors who have not heard about the high-profile case in Barton County, a western Kansas community of 27,674 people.
Judge Hannelore Kitts has rejected defence efforts to move the trial, despite defence team arguments that a university survey it commissioned of 400 local residents found that all were familiar with the case and that most thought Longoria was guilty.
The judge instead sided with prosecutors who argued the people of the county deserve the opportunity to have the case heard at home, contending the court should not assume jurors would not set aside any opinions and decide the case on its merits.

Longoria, 38, was arrested after he was found driving an SUV stolen from the asphalt company where he worked and where the girl's body had been found days earlier.
Prosecutors have portrayed him as being immediately obsessed with Alicia after seeing her at a July 2010 birthday party for his live-in girlfriend, Eva Brown.
'He began to woo Alicia by fawning over her and providing her with mixed alcohol drinks. He wanted Alicia to be `his girl,'' prosecutors wrote in one filing.

'When another male took her home at the end of the party, the defendant became upset, later accusing this individual of blocking his attempts to have sex with Alicia.'
Longoria and the girl began texting the day after that party, exchanging 55 messages on July 18, 2010. Longoria called Alicia 'miss shy' and 'hot stuff' and asked her to send him a picture, which she did.
Prosecutors say Longoria attempted unsuccessfully on four other occasions to get Alicia in the car with him.
The state contends that on Aug. 21, 2010, Longoria's 'depraved fantasy' came true when he finally lured Alicia into his vehicle, took her to an isolated area, attempted to rape her and killed her.



Employees at Venture Corp., the asphalt company, initially thought they had found a mannequin on the property, until they noticed flies around the burned figure and called police.
The body was so badly burned and decomposition so advanced that the specific cause of death remains unknown. All officials can say for sure is that they don't think she was burned alive.
Longoria has vigorously denied the charges of capital murder, attempted rape and criminal solicitation of a minor. He has a lengthy criminal record, and was released from a Texas prison where he had been serving a seven-year sentence for aggravated robbery just three months before Alicia was killed.
The state is not seeking the death penalty, but if convicted of capital murder Longoria could be sentenced to life in prison without parole.
He has claimed that he did not see Alicia on the night she disappeared, saying someone else took his car and cell phone that night. His attorney has tried unsuccessfully to suppress inconsistent statements Longoria made to investigators about his whereabouts at the time.
He also faces charges for vehicle burglary and theft of property relating to that stolen vehicle.
Prosecutors likely plan to show the jury texts exchanged on the day she was killed.
An hour before Alicia left her house, Longoria allegedly texted the girl's phone: 'I can pick up and we can go out and party we will have fun.'
Another text message 21 minutes later read, 'I have 5 bottles and 5 cases of beer an (sic) 1 house and there will be lots of people.' She replied, 'K.'
A few minutes later she texted him saying she was ready and gave him her home address.
At 10:59 p.m., Longoria texted her again: 'B there in 3 mins.'
A minute later, came the reply: 'I'm here.'
The last signal picked up from Alicia's phone was at 11:40 p.m.
At 12:57 a.m., Longoria texted the girl's phone one last time: 'There isn't going 2 b a party never mind.'

I will go back and dig through all of the articles. I have most of them cached.

There was something about the possibility of semen that didnt match Longoria found on her body, from what I read they assume it was from earlier in a consentual sexual encounter and that to my understanding is why they took the death penalty off this case.

Longoria was quite the criminal. He did time in Texas for robbing a bank that was across the street from his house. They caught him hiding under the kitchen sink. While in prison he obtained a cell phone and called a bomb threat into a school. He was to go directly from prison in Texas to serve time for the bomb threat but somehow was lost in the shuffle and got out. Im going off the top of my head I believe the school was in Michigan and it had something to do with a family members child being in trouble at school.

He met Eva Brown via a prison pen pal service and she moved him from Prison into her home with her 11 yr old daughter and 9 yr old son. (SHUDDER). After he killed Alicia, Eva apparently cut his bloodied shirt into atleast 3 pieces and threw them out the car window in seperate places. Before he ran in the company truck he was seen mailing a package to Texas that contained a couple cowboy hats and some jeans. That kind of got shushed up in the media so am very curious what will come out about this in the trial.

I went to a candle light vigil and spoke with Alicias mother and sister it was devistating. I also have been in contact with a woman who Longoria was milking for money to keep from harming her nephew in prison.

I will try to post as many of the articles I can during watching the trial. Its gonna be a long sad couple weeks.

I have to confess I couldnt bring myself to do anything but watch the trial today as the guy blogging it apparently slept through most of it.MOO.

The reason he wasnt tried for the death penalty was because a trace amount of male semen was found in her mouth that couldnt be matched to anyone...sounds like it was a small amount ...defense didnt really dwell on it except to say it wasnt matched to Longoria, prosocution didnt try to prove it one way or the other but made it clear who they thought it belonged too. I watched till about 4:45 i dont think I missed much. Longoria didnt show much reaction except after Alicias mom and sister both got off the stand he wiped his eyes and face.

I took notes all through the day first was her mom then her sister Dawn, then Holly Dawns "wife" she was only on the stand a few minutes. Then 2 neighbors who saw Longoria pick Alicia up on saturday night, on monday after she hadnt been found Dave Nealy(sp?) a neighbor followed what he thought was the vehicle that showed up to pick up Alicia the last night she was seen alive.He saw it and followed it on monday...It went to Alicias house where Longoria showed up to scream and holler and swear his innocence...I knew this was going to be a hard trial but I was in tears even watching her mother laugh out of pure nervousness. Both sides released her mom from the subpeonas right away, They neither wanted to release the sister Dawn but after a 15 minute break it was agreed to release her.I have several pages of notes if anyone has questions I will try to answer them.

Mother, Sister of Alicia Debolt Testify in Longoria Jury Trial

Several witnesses took the stand as part of the presentation of evidence Thursday in the Adam Longoria Jury Trail, the man charged with the Capital Murder of 14-year-old Great Bend resident Alicia Debolt. Tammie Conrad, Debolt’s mother testified yesterday, describing what Debolt did the last night she was seen alive. She also described the days following her disappearance. Conrad discussed the first time she met Adam Longoria, also known as Rocko.

CONRAD-I’LL HELP YOU FIND HER by Matt Unruh
Alicia Debolt’s sister Dawn Debolt also testified Thursday. She said Debolt was having issues with an unknown person, who sent Alicia a text telling her to stop texting her husband. She also said that Alicia mentioned that Longoria was texting her at one point. Dawn Debolt describes the first time she met Longoria, when they went to his home to question Longoria and his wife Eva Brown after investigating Alicia Debolt’s phone.

Normal Re: Adam Joseph "Rocco" Longoria arrest in Alicia Debolt, age 14./Update: Longoria found GUILTY OF CAPITAL MURDER & CRIMINAL SODOMY!Update: Adam Longoria get Life In Prison!!

Post by Guest on Fri Mar 30, 2012 6:16 am

GREAT BEND, Kansas -- A capital murder case that's been in the headlines for more than a year and a half finally goes to trial.

Adam Longoria is accused of killing 14-year-old Alicia DeBolt in August of 2010, just days before the teenager was to start her freshman year of high school.

The jury was seated Thursday morning. Attorneys gave their opening statements early Thursday afternoon, then the prosecution began calling witnesses.

During their opening statement, prosecutors wasted no time telling the jury about dozens of text messages the 36-year-old ex-convict allegedly sent to 14-year-old DeBolt in an apparent attempt to date her.

"'Good morning, beautiful.' That's the first text message that Adam Longoria sent Alicia DeBolt a few hours after he met her for the first time," said Victor Braden, Deputy State Attorney General. "'Wake up, sleeping beauty' sent eight minutes later."

Prosecutors say Longoria exchanged more than 80 text messages with DeBolt.

"He says things to her like, 'Thanks for coming to my party. Maybe one day you'll let me take you out to a movie or whatever,'" said Braden.

Prosecutors promised jurors a mountain of evidence that they say links Longoria to the crime.

But defense attorneys used their opening statement to say almost all of the evidence is circumstantial.

"The text messages and that evidence, you can not say who the person is who is exactly sending that text message," said Tim Frieden, defense attorney. "All you know is it's going from one phone to another phone."

Defense attorneys plan to poke as many holes as possible in the prosecution's case.

"These questions will be designed to show to you, that the state's case is not as strong as what they want you to think it is," said Frieden.

Alicia DeBolt's mother and sister were the first two witnesses on the stand. Both say they warned Alicia to stay away from Longoria. Alicia's sister remembers at one point Alicia was confronted by a woman claiming to be Longoria's wife.

"[Alicia] had put two and two together, eventually and realized, 'I'm not even texting him. He's the one that keeps texting me. I don't know why she's so mad at me. I'm not doing nothing,'" said Dawn DeBolt, Alicia's sister.

Before Longoria's arrest, the mother and sister confronted him about why he was texting an underage girl.

"We kind of said, 'What is a 36-year-old man hanging out with a 14-year-old kid?' and he responded, 'I never seen Alicia that night. I never seen her,'" said Dawn DeBolt.

Prosecutors have a list of 171 potential witnesses that they may call to the stand. Eight took the stand Thursday.

Longoria is also charged with vehicle burglary and theft. If the jury convicts him of capital murder, he faces life in prison without parole.

Normal Re: Adam Joseph "Rocco" Longoria arrest in Alicia Debolt, age 14./Update: Longoria found GUILTY OF CAPITAL MURDER & CRIMINAL SODOMY!Update: Adam Longoria get Life In Prison!!

GREAT BEND - A Venture Corp. foreman said he thought his co-workers were playing a joke on him when he saw what appeared to be a burned mannequin Aug. 24, 2010, at the company's asphalt plant near Great Bend.

"I was startled," Mike Mazouch testified Thursday in Barton County District Court. "I dismissed it as being a mannequin being burned."

Mazouch was among eight people who testified Thursday in a capital murder case against 38-year-old Adam Joseph Longoria, who also worked for the Venture Corp. construction company.
Longoria is charged with killing 14-year-old Alicia DeBolt of Great Bend, whose burned body was found Aug. 24, 2010, at Venture Corp.'s Dundee asphalt plant about five miles southwest of Great Bend. He is also charged with stealing a Venture Corp. vehicle Aug. 27, 2010, to allegedly flee amid the homicide investigation.

Testimony began Thursday before District Judge Hannelore Kitts after a jury of nine men and five women were seated, including two alternates.

Assistant Attorney General Andrew Bauch, in opening statements, described how a barrage of text messages between Longoria and DeBolt began shortly after the pair met at a party late July 17, 2010, at Longoria's Great Bend home.

" 'Good morning, beautiful' - that's the first text message Adam Longoria sent Alicia DeBolt a few hours after he met her for the first time," Bauch told jurors.

A mixture of Longoria and DeBolt's DNA was found in a black Ford Escape that Longoria drove - which DeBolt's neighbors testified was the vehicle she left home in Aug. 21, 2010, before she disappeared.

Tim Frieden, Longoria's defense attorney with the Kansas Death Penalty Defense Unit, told jurors, however, that the evidence will also show DNA from an unknown male was found on DeBolt.

***

Eighty text messages were exchanged between Longoria and DeBolt on July 18, 2010, the day after the pair met at a birthday party for Longoria's then-girlfriend, Eva Brown, Bauch said Thursday. Brown had met Longoria online - after he'd been released from a Texas prison - and Longoria moved into Brown's Great Bend home in May 2010.

On Aug. 21, 2010, Longoria worked at the Dundee asphalt plant before Brown told his employer he had to leave for a "family emergency," Bauch told jurors. Longoria and Brown went out for dinner and bowling, and Brown saw him on his phone "texting," Bauch said.

"The phone records will show who he texted," Bauch said, adding that Longoria sent a text message to DeBolt offering to pick her up for a party.

Frieden told jurors the records will show messages between two phones but not who sent those messages.

Tamara Conrad, DeBolt's mother and the state's first witness, acknowledged her daughter left home at about 11 p.m. Aug. 21, 2010, to go to a party and said two teens named Ivan and Giovanni were picking her up. DeBolt put on new clothes bought that day in Wichita for her upcoming first day of high school, Conrad said: jean shorts, a T-shirt, shoes with neon colors, "crazy, mismatched socks," and a bracelet that said "Alicia."

She never returned home for her midnight curfew, Conrad said.

Three days later, search volunteers found DeBolt's cellphone and battery in a ditch near the asphalt plant, Bauch said in opening statements. Gas was found around her body at the plant, and Longoria was captured on surveillance video buying $1.32 in gas the night DeBolt disappeared, Bauch said. Gas was also found on a pair of shoes Longoria wore that night, Bauch said.

Bauch told jurors to expect to hear testimony from people who say Longoria asked them to tell police he was with them at local nightclub "Willie J's" the night DeBolt disappeared. Brown will also testify Longoria asked her to rip up his shirt he wore that night and throw it away, and she did, according to Bauch.

The cause of DeBolt's death was undetermined but was "some type of homicidal violence," Bauch said.

***

Dawn DeBolt, Alicia DeBolt's 28-year-old sister, testified Great Bend police shrugged off the family when they reported concerns early Aug. 22, 2010, that something bad had happened to Alicia.

Conrad said Alicia had not come home before and said her cellphone died, but Conrad thought Alicia was back on track. She didn't file a missing person report until the afternoon of Aug. 22, because she didn't want Alicia to be taken to a juvenile detention center if she had messed up again.

Alicia talked before about how Longoria, known as "Rocko," was 25 years old, and they had exchanged text messages, Dawn said. But Dawn noted both she and Alicia's mother warned her to be cautious about an older man, although they had not met him.

"It wasn't normal for an older guy like that to be hanging out with a 14-year-old girl," Dawn testified.

Dawn said she decided to do her own investigating when Alicia went missing. She called Alicia's friends, sent text messages, and spread the word online.

"She was my best friend ... my baby sister," Dawn testified.

Dawn knocked on the door of Longoria's home, and Brown answered. When told about Alicia's disappearance, Brown responded by saying, "I never liked that little (expletive)," Dawn testified, adding she then told Brown she was Alicia's sister.

Brown called Longoria, who said on speakerphone he was a block away from DeBolt's home the night she disappeared, Dawn testified. Then Longoria "comes around the corner" of the home and said he was at Willie J's the night Alicia went missing, Dawn said.

Under cross-examination, Dawn acknowledged she also visited the homes of "Ivan and Giovanni," and when she asked Ivan if something had happened to Alicia, he "hung his head and said, 'Probably.' "

Post by Guest on Fri Mar 30, 2012 6:29 am

By Darcy Gray - The Hutchinson News - dgray@hutchnews.com

It barely took Tammy Conrad a second to look at the photo in the three-ring binder placed in front her to recognize the subject.
“That’s my baby girl,” she said, her face still beaming with parental joy as she identified her daughter’s picture. The snapshot was taken when that “baby girl” still had a life ahead of her.
Conrad is the mother of slain teenager Alicia DeBolt and was the prosecution’s first witness in the trial for Adam Joseph Longoria, the man accused of murdering DeBolt after attempting to sexually assault her the night of Aug. 21, 2010.
Opening arguments took place Thursday afternoon after a jury of five women and nine men was seated late in the morning in Barton County District Court. The trial is expected to last well into next week with Barton County District Judge Hannelore Kitts presiding.
DeBolt’s charred remains were found on Aug. 24, 2010, one day after she was to have started her freshman year at Great Bend High School.
Conrad said DeBolt was a typical teenager. She liked clothes. She had a midnight curfew and was “pretty good” about getting home on time. She had run away from home in the past, but said she had turned things around.
Before Conrad took the stand, prosecutor Andrew Bauch, assistant attorney general, addressed the jury. “‘Good morning beautiful,’ that was the first text sent to Alicia DeBolt by Adam Longoria,” he said.
He told how Eva Brown met Longoria over the Internet in 2009 and drove down to Texas to pick him up a year later.
“He had no car, so he used hers (a dark-colored Ford Escape). He had no cell phone, so he used hers.”
The two lived together at and presented themselves as husband and wife.
Bauch told of a birthday party on July 17, 2010, where DeBolt and Longoria met, and how the two begin exchanging text messages. Since he used Brown’s phone, she intercepted some of those messages and Longoria explained them away.
When Longoria got his own cell phone, the texting continued.
Bauch told of that fateful day in August. Conrad, DeBolt and DeBolt’s sister Dawn DeBolt went for a day-long shopping spree in Wichita to buy school clothes for the appearance-conscious DeBolt, returning after 10 p.m. This was Saturday and school started Monday.
Also on the evening of the 21st, Longoria and Brown had gone bowling and out to eat at the Rack. While at dinner, Longoria was seen texting, and cell phone records show he was contacting DeBolt, Bauch said. “Can pick up, party, have fun” was the message.
“Alicia DeBolt tells her mom she wants to go out and see some friends,” he said. “She walks out that door at 11 o’clock for the last time.”
Neighbors saw DeBolt get into a dark-colored SUV (identified as Brown’s Ford Escape) and leave.
Longoria was seen buying a $1.32 in gasoline at a Love’s convenience store midnight that night. Bauch said the defendant had friends lie for him to establish an alibi.
He later had his wife dispose of some of the clothing he wore the night DeBolt died.
Bauch described how DeBolt’s body was found at Venture Corporation’s Dundee asphalt plant. “A swarm of law enforcement officers descended on Great Bend.”
Evidence was collected, including DNA, cell phone records and soil samples. Statements were taken.
DeBolt’s body was burned beyond recognition, requiring DNA to make the identification. During the autopsy, a small amount of unknown male DNA was found in her mouth.
Mixed DNA was found on the floor board of that SUV. “It was the defendant’s semen mixed with the DNA of Alicia DeBolt,” Bauch said.
Because of the condition of the body, an exact cause of death couldn’t be determined. But, it was “homicidal violence,” Bauch said.
He then told of how Longoria’s house was searched, and how he allegedly stole a vehicle from the Venture plant and a company cell phone. Tracking calls on that phone lead to his arrest in Salina by the Kansas Highway Patrol.
However, “the state’s case is based on circumstantial evidence,” said defense attorney Tim Frieden with the Kansas Death Penalty Defense Unit. “The state’s case isn’t as strong as they want you to think it is.”
Some of the DNA found remains unidentified, he said. “Either there was another male involved, or there was a contamination of the testing procedure,” Frieden said.
There were varying descriptions of the vehicle DeBolt entered and there were others who texted her. Some witnesses thought they saw DeBolt at a party at Camp Aldridge. There are also witnesses that saw “multiple vehicles” leaving the asphalt plant that night.

On the stand
“She said she had a party she wanted to go to when we got home,” Conrad said of her daughter. This was during the trip to Wichita. Conrad could recall exactly what DeBolt wore as she walked out the door.
Conrad knew of Longoria, but not as Longoria. DeBolt and Conrad knew the 36-year-old Longoria as “Rocko” and understood him to be only 25 years old.
“She said he seemed nice, and she wanted to hangout with him,” Conrad said. The mother warned to be cautious since was new to town and older.
As for Aug. 21, when DeBolt failed to come home by her curfew, Conrad began texting her. She never responded and never came back.
When she didn’t show up on Sunday, Conrad called the police. “The officer sort of blew me off.”
Conrad didn’t want to file a missing persons report for fear that, because of DeBolt’s history, she might be in legal trouble. But, the mom felt something was wrong and that DeBolt hadn’t just run away from home.
Later Sunday, she broke down and filed the report. Meanwhile, family and friends were calling and texting everyone they could think of with information about DeBolt.
She met Longoria for the first time the following Monday when he came running up to her house upset and wanting to help find DeBolt.
“She was my best friend,” said Dawn DeBolt of her half sister. “We was my baby sister. We talked about everything.”
She told about how her sister came to her complaining about unwanted texts from some woman (who turned out to be Brown). “It was bugging Alicia,” she said.
So, the big sister fired a text back. “I let her have it. I wasn’t very nice.”
On the night she disappeared, the girl who normally took great care piecing together an outfit and putting on make up “just threw something together,” Dawn DeBolt said. “She was a little different.”
She, too, warned about Rocko.
After DeBolt disappeared, her sister started her own investigation. “We weren’t getting very much help from the police.”
At one point during this private probe, Dawn DeBolt found out where Longoria lived and confronted Brown. While there, she asked about Longoria eventually showed up as well.
After Dawn DeBolt, there was testimony from Venture employees describing the asphalt plant and its location, and what is done there.
Another witness also recalled driving by the plant and seeing what looked like a “mannequin” which was really DeBolt’s charred remains.
Brown is scheduled to be the first witness this morning when court reconvenes at 9 a.m.

A KBI agent told a Barton County jury Alicia DeBolt's face was covered with something. An autopsy showed that "something" was duct tape.

Adam Longoria is on trial for the murder and rape of 14-year-old Alicia DeBolt in August of 2010. Her badly burned body was found at an asphalt plant outside Great Bend three days after she went missing. Longoria worked at the plant.

In court Thursday, KBI Agent Cody Latham described to jurors the condition of DeBolt's body. He said it was badly burned and he found jewelry next to her body, including a necklace with the letter "A" around her neck.

"Her face was covered with something," Latham said. "The autopsy showed it was duct tape."

Prosecutors believe Longoria, who was 37-years-old at the time, was obsessed with the teen cheerleader, sending her dozens and dozens of text messages in the days before her death.

Defense attorneys are set to prove it was someone else who killed DeBolt that night. They say they will prove there was another man's DNA in the girls body, other than Longoria's.

The trial is expected to last into next week.

Friday, March 30, 2012

Testimony is expected to continue for a second day in the trial of a Great Bend man charged with killing a Kansas teen.

Adam Longoria is accused of murdering Alicia Debolt. The 14-year-old’s body was found badly burned at a Great Bend asphalt plant in August 2010.

The teenager’s family among the first to testify in the trial Thursday. Dawn Debolt said she helped organize search parties to find her missing sister. Alicia was last seen getting into a dark-colored SUV, heading to a party.

Dawn said she knocked on the door where Longoria was living. She testified Longoria’s girlfriend answered the door. Dawn said the woman cursed when asked about Alicia’s whereabouts.

Prosecutors hope to paint a relationship between Longoria and Debolt. The state argues the two exchanged loving text messages leading up to her death.

The defense argued in opening statements there is no concrete proof Longoria killed the teenager. The defense said the investigation is based on circumstantial evidence.

The trial is expected to a couple of weeks. More than 150 people could testify.

If Longoria is convicted, he will face life in prison without parole.

Murder trial witness: Longoria said girl, 14, had “nice body” (Sick!!!!)

By Tim Potter
The Wichita Eagle
Published Friday, March 30, 2012, at 5 a.m.
Updated Friday, March 30, 2012, at 12:39 p.m.

GREAT BEND — Adam Longoria’s former co-worker testified today that Longoria, then 36, told him that Alicia DeBolt had a “really nice body” and that she didn’t look like a 14-year-old.

Longoria, on trial on a charge of capital murder in Alicia’s 2010 death, said he had met the girl at a party, that he found out her age and that he had nothing going on with her, former co-worker Adam Rios testified. Rios said he spoke with Longoria about two days after Alicia disappeared from her home on Aug. 21, 2010.

Most of today’s testimony so far has focused on the discovery and documentation of Alicia’s badly burned body, which was found three days after her disappearance, at an asphalt plant several miles southwest of town where Longoria had worked. Investigators found her body still clothed, her shorts unbuttoned, and the remains of duct tape over her nose and mouth, KBI Agent Cory Latham testified. She also had duct tape on one ankle.

It was clear that her body had been set on fire there, Latham said. Burn patterns circled her body.

Her fingers grasped a piece of jewelry.

I'm not blaming the Mother in any way BUT I sure do not understand why anyone would allow a 14 year old to go out at 11:30 at night and especially with what the Mom thought was a 25 year old male! I hate to say this but the poor Mother is paying a dear price for this. I hope this POS receives the maximum sentence and I wish that was death!

Conrad (Mother) knew of Longoria, but not as Longoria. DeBolt (sister) and Conrad knew the 36-year-old Longoria as “Rocko” and understood him to be only 25 years old.
“She said he seemed nice, and she wanted to hangout with him,” Conrad said. The mother warned to be cautious since was new to town and older.

Unbelievable!! She was only 14 years old!! The mother is the one that should have been cautious for her underage daughter!! pulling hair

Adam Longoria murder trial opens: Texts, DNA at issue
By Tim Potter

The Wichita Eagle
Published Friday, March 30, 2012, at 12 a.m.
Updated Saturday, March 31, 2012, at 11:35 a.m.

Trial to begin Monday in murder of Great Bend teen
GREAT BEND Prosecutor Andrew Bauch wants jurors to believe that the man who killed Alicia DeBolt and burned her body is none other than Adam Longoria. That he was the person who tried to lure the 14-year-old through a long series of text messages that began “Good morning, beautiful” and “Wake up, sleeping beauty.”

Besides the text messages, jurors will hear evidence that Longoria, 36, drove a black SUV similar to the one witnesses saw Alicia get into the night she disappeared, that Longoria later bought $1.32 worth of gas, that his shoes showed traces of gasoline, that a mixture of his DNA and her DNA was found in a semen stain on the floorboard of his girlfriend’s black SUV.

Defense attorney Tim Frieden wants jurors to believe that another man was involved and that prosecutors have a circumstantial case that is not as strong as the prosecutors portray it.

Attorneys outlined their cases during opening statements Thursday in Longoria’s capital murder trial. Jurors — nine men and five women — also heard testimony from Alicia’s family about the night she disappeared, on Aug. 21, 2010, less than two days before she was to begin her freshman year of high school. Her last day alive included a trip from Great Bend to Wichita with her family to buy clothes.

Bauch, an assistant attorney general, went first, with the prosecution’s statement, focusing on a timeline and narrative that essentially begins around July 17, when Longoria saw Alicia at a party. He was an ex-con from Texas who was living with his girlfriend and her two children near the same Great Bend park where Alicia hung out.

By the early morning of July 18, Alicia texted Longoria: “Hey, it’s Alicia.” When Longoria’s girlfriend saw the message, she asked Longoria who the person was, and he said it was some girl and that he just wanted to make sure she got home OK.

That day, Longoria and Alicia exchanged more than 80 text messages. He thanked her for coming to the party and said he wanted to take her out, according to Bauch.

At some point, she got this text: “What are you doing hot stuff?”

On Aug. 21, Longoria spent part of the night going to a bowling alley and a bar and grill with his girlfriend. She saw Longoria texting that night.

At about 11 that night, Alicia left her home “for the last time,” Bauch said.

Around the same time, neighbors saw a dark-colored SUV go back and forth on the street where Alicia lived and saw her walk out with her cellphone, glowing in the dark, and get into the SUV.

Cellphone records showed that Alicia headed out that night toward an asphalt plant several miles from town, where her charred body would be found three days later. Searchers recovered her phone in a nearby ditch.

Longoria told investigators that no one else besides him used his girlfriend’s black SUV that night, Bauch said.

Witnesses said that Longoria approached others and told them they needed to say he had been at a certain bar that night, even though he wasn’t there.

Longoria went to a convenience store late that night, looking for a fuel container, and buying $1.32 in gasoline.

An effort to get DNA from Alicia’s badly burned body found a small fraction of a male’s DNA in her mouth, but the source couldn’t be determined, Bauch said. In Longoria’s girlfriend’s black SUV, testing found a mix of his DNA and Alicia’s DNA in a semen stain on the floor.

Longoria’s girlfriend would reveal that he ripped into pieces the shirt he had worn earlier the night Alicia disappeared and told his girlfriend to get rid of it if she loved him, and the girlfriend threw it out, Bauch said.

Alicia’s body was so charred that investigators couldn’t pinpoint how she died, only that it was “homicidal violence.”

Longoria’s shoes tested positive for gasoline.

Days after Alicia disappeared, a state trooper arrested Longoria in the Salina area in a stolen white SUV that belonged to his employer, which owned the asphalt plant where Alicia’s body was found.

And there is one other piece of evidence investigators found, Bauch said – a text from Longoria to Alicia: “Wouldn’t think a girl like you would want anything to do with a guy like me.”

Defense statements

Frieden, one of Longoria’s defense attorneys, said the prosecution’s case is based mainly on circumstantial evidence and that he will raise questions to show it is lacking.

With the text messages, it can’t be proven who sent the messages, Frieden said. And records only show the area where a cellphone was used, not the precise location, he said.

Among his counter statements: The mix of DNA on the floorboard doesn’t show how or when the DNA got there.

The small amount of unknown male DNA in her mouth excludes Longoria, Frieden said. It raises the possibility that another man was involved or that the testing was contaminated, which should bring into question all of the DNA evidence, Frieden said.

The witnesses who saw the vehicle outside Alicia’s house gave varying descriptions, Frieden said.

And there are other things that conflict with the prosecution’s narrative, Frieden said. One witness thought she saw Alicia at a party that night. A foot impression near Alicia’s body didn’t match Longoria’s shoes. Investigators found none of Alicia’s hair in the SUV that Longoria used.

And other witnesses saw multiple vehicles leaving the asphalt plant, Frieden said.

He told the jury that Longoria, who could face life without parole if convicted of capital murder, denies involvement in Alicia’s disappearance and death.

Witness testimony

The first witness to testify after the opening statements, Alicia’s mother, Tamara Conrad, said she had heard of Longoria as a man who went by the name Rocko, who was supposedly about 25; her daughter thought he seemed nice. Conrad said she told Alicia “just to watch out and mind her p’s and q’s around him.” Conrad had never met Rocko. He was new in town.

When Alicia missed her midnight curfew the night she disappeared, Conrad quickly started sending text messages asking where she was. She thought Alicia would come home in the morning, just as she had a couple of other times, Conrad testified. She said her daughter could be a difficult teenager but was doing better.

On Sunday, with her daughter still missing, Conrad said, “I knew something was wrong.” She called police.

When Bauch asked Conrad if she could identify a photo of her daughter taken the spring before she died, Conrad said, choking up, “That’s my baby girl.”

Michael Mazouch, who works for Venture, the road-building business that owned the asphalt plant where Alicia’s body was found and that had hired Longoria days before Alicia disappeared, said he noticed something strange at the plant one morning.

It startled him, but at first he dismissed it as a burned mannequin, some kind of prank.

There were “jokesters” at the plant, so at first he thought “maybe somebody was messing around.”

Testimony continues today.

Longoria trial starts

Victim's mother, sister recall her disappearance

By Darcy Gray - The Hutchinson News - [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

GREAT BEND - A Venture Corp. foreman said he thought his co-workers were playing a joke on him when he saw what appeared to be a burned mannequin Aug. 24, 2010, at the company's asphalt plant near Great Bend.

"I was startled," Mike Mazouch testified Thursday in Barton County District Court. "I dismissed it as being a mannequin being burned."

Mazouch was among eight people who testified Thursday in a capital murder case against 38-year-old Adam Joseph Longoria, who also worked for the Venture Corp. construction company.

Longoria is charged with killing 14-year-old Alicia DeBolt of Great Bend, whose burned body was found Aug. 24, 2010, at Venture Corp.'s Dundee asphalt plant about five miles southwest of Great Bend. He is also charged with stealing a Venture Corp. vehicle Aug. 27, 2010, to allegedly flee amid the homicide investigation.

Testimony began Thursday before District Judge Hannelore Kitts after a jury of nine men and five women were seated, including two alternates.

Assistant Attorney General Andrew Bauch, in opening statements, described how a barrage of text messages between Longoria and DeBolt began shortly after the pair met at a party late July 17, 2010, at Longoria's Great Bend home.

" 'Good morning, beautiful' - that's the first text message Adam Longoria sent Alicia DeBolt a few hours after he met her for the first time," Bauch told jurors.

A mixture of Longoria and DeBolt's DNA was found in a black Ford Escape that Longoria drove - which DeBolt's neighbors testified was the vehicle she left home in Aug. 21, 2010, before she disappeared.

Tim Frieden, Longoria's defense attorney with the Kansas Death Penalty Defense Unit, told jurors, however, that the evidence will also show DNA from an unknown male was found on DeBolt.

Eighty text messages were exchanged between Longoria and DeBolt on July 18, 2010, the day after the pair met at a birthday party for Longoria's then-girlfriend, Eva Brown, Bauch said Thursday. Brown had met Longoria online - after he'd been released from a Texas prison - and Longoria moved into Brown's Great Bend home in May 2010.

On Aug. 21, 2010, Longoria worked at the Dundee asphalt plant before Brown told his employer he had to leave for a "family emergency," Bauch told jurors. Longoria and Brown went out for dinner and bowling, and Brown saw him on his phone "texting," Bauch said.

"The phone records will show who he texted," Bauch said, adding that Longoria sent a text message to DeBolt offering to pick her up for a party.

Frieden told jurors the records will show messages between two phones but not who sent those messages.

Tamara Conrad, DeBolt's mother and the state's first witness, acknowledged her daughter left home at about 11 p.m. Aug. 21, 2010, to go to a party and said two teens named Ivan and Giovanni were picking her up. DeBolt put on new clothes bought that day in Wichita for her upcoming first day of high school, Conrad said: jean shorts, a T-shirt, shoes with neon colors, "crazy, mismatched socks," and a bracelet that said "Alicia."

She never returned home for her midnight curfew, Conrad said.

Three days later, search volunteers found DeBolt's cellphone and battery in a ditch near the asphalt plant, Bauch said in opening statements. Gas was found around her body at the plant, and Longoria was captured on surveillance video buying $1.32 in gas the night DeBolt disappeared, Bauch said. Gas was also found on a pair of shoes Longoria wore that night, Bauch said.

Bauch told jurors to expect to hear testimony from people who say Longoria asked them to tell police he was with them at local nightclub "Willie J's" the night DeBolt disappeared. Brown will also testify Longoria asked her to rip up his shirt he wore that night and throw it away, and she did, according to Bauch.

The cause of DeBolt's death was undetermined but was "some type of homicidal violence," Bauch said.

Dawn DeBolt, Alicia DeBolt's 28-year-old sister, testified Great Bend police shrugged off the family when they reported concerns early Aug. 22, 2010, that something bad had happened to Alicia.

Conrad said Alicia had not come home before and said her cellphone died, but Conrad thought Alicia was back on track. She didn't file a missing person report until the afternoon of Aug. 22, because she didn't want Alicia to be taken to a juvenile detention center if she had messed up again.

Alicia talked before about how Longoria, known as "Rocko," was 25 years old, and they had exchanged text messages, Dawn said. But Dawn noted both she and Alicia's mother warned her to be cautious about an older man, although they had not met him.

"It wasn't normal for an older guy like that to be hanging out with a 14-year-old girl," Dawn testified.

Dawn said she decided to do her own investigating when Alicia went missing. She called Alicia's friends, sent text messages, and spread the word online.

"She was my best friend ... my baby sister," Dawn testified.

Dawn knocked on the door of Longoria's home, and Brown answered. When told about Alicia's disappearance, Brown responded by saying, "I never liked that little (expletive)," Dawn testified, adding she then told Brown she was Alicia's sister.

Brown called Longoria, who said on speakerphone he was a block away from DeBolt's home the night she disappeared, Dawn testified. Then Longoria "comes around the corner" of the home and said he was at Willie J's the night Alicia went missing, Dawn said.

Under cross-examination, Dawn acknowledged she also visited the homes of "Ivan and Giovanni," and when she asked Ivan if something had happened to Alicia, he "hung his head and said, 'Probably.' "

Trial continues in teen’s murder
Ex-girlfriend says Longoria came home smelling of gas

By Tim Potter
The Wichita Eagle
Published Saturday, March 31, 2012, at 5 a.m.
Updated Monday, April 2, 2012, at 1:34 p.m.

GREAT BEND — In 2009, Eva Brown met Adam Longoria on an Internet site. In May 2010, she drove to Texas and brought the ex-con to Great Bend to live with her.

By August 2010, after 14-year-old Alicia DeBolt disappeared from her Great Bend home one night, Brown was getting questions from police about Longoria’s actions.

For a while, Brown did what Longoria told her to do, she said Friday, the second day of testimony in his capital murder trial. He told her to throw away the remains of a shirt he wore when he left the night Alicia disappeared, and she did it. He told her to tell police he was at a bar that authorities say he wasn’t at, and she did that, she said.

One thing she didn’t do for him: “He wanted us to get married … so I wouldn’t have to testify against him,” Brown said. Their relationship ended in January 2011.

Under prosecutor Kevin O’Connor’s questioning, Brown said Longoria came home smelling of gasoline late the night that Alicia disappeared and that Brown’s SUV, which he drove that night, smelled of gas the next morning. Three days after Alicia disappeared, employees found her charred body at an asphalt plant where Longoria had begun working.

Neighbors saw Alicia leave her home with her cellphone and get into a dark-colored SUV around 11 p.m. Aug. 21, 2010.

That same night, around the same time, Longoria left the home he shared with Brown and her two children and left in Brown’s black Ford Escape, Brown testified. Alicia lived a few blocks away.

After what seemed like 15 minutes, Longoria showed back up that night, Brown said. O’Connor pressed Brown about whether the time span was that short.

When Longoria got home, Brown noticed he was dirty; he said he had been working on someone’s car. To her, he smelled like gas. He changed clothes and began washing his soiled clothes. He left again and returned not long after she sent him a text message around 12:30 a.m.

Later that morning, she noticed that her SUV that he had driven the night before also smelled of gas. She had to roll down the windows. She looked for her can of air freshener but couldn’t find it.

That Sunday, she got a text message and photo of Alicia from a friend saying the girl was missing. She showed the message to Longoria, who said he didn’t know the girl, Brown testified.

When Brown took Longoria’s clothes out of the dryer the day after Alicia disappeared, his pants were still stained. He said he would throw them away. He washed the gym shoes he had worn the night before in a tub. He put his shoe laces in a cup of bleach.

“Did you ask him about it?” O’Connor, the prosecutor, asked. “No,” Brown replied.

The next day, a Monday, while Alicia was still missing, Alicia’s sister and aunt came to Brown’s home, saying Brown’s SUV matched the description of the SUV Alicia was last seen in. Brown called Longoria and asked if he knew anything about it, and he said he didn’t, Brown testified.

At some point, Longoria told Brown he had told police he was at a certain bar the night Alicia disappeared, and he asked her to tell investigators he had been at the bar, Brown said.

At another point, Longoria tore into pieces the shirt he had worn the night Alicia disappeared and asked “for me to throw it away,” Brown said. “He said if I loved him enough I would throw it away.”

She went to get cigarettes for him and threw the shirt pieces out in different spots; later, she showed police the locations.

Alicia had met Longoria, then 36, at a party on July 17.

Brown said that after the July party, she sent Alicia a message saying she needed to quit texting Longoria. Authorities say it was Longoria who used a series of texts to try to lure Alicia into a vehicle.

In the courtroom Friday afternoon, Longoria, dressed in a coat and tie and at times squinting through glasses, appeared to listen closely to Brown’s testimony.

Defense attorney Tim Frieden seemed to challenge Brown’s accounts to investigators. When Frieden asked Brown if she was telling the truth, she said, “yes.”

Earlier Friday, a former co-worker of Longoria’s said Longoria told him that Alicia had a “really nice body” and that she didn’t look like a 14-year-old.

Longoria said he had met her at a party, that he found out her age and that he had nothing going on with her, former co-worker Adam Rios testified. Rios said he spoke with Longoria on the Monday following the Saturday night that Alicia disappeared.

Other testimony focused on the discovery and documentation of Alicia’s badly burned body, found at the asphalt plant where Longoria had worked. Investigators found her body still clothed, her shorts unbuttoned, and the remains of what was later determined to be duct tape over her nose and mouth, KBI Agent Cory Latham testified. She also had duct tape on one ankle.

It was clear that her body had been set on fire at that spot, Latham said. Burn patterns circled her body.

Her fingers grasped a piece of jewelry.

Trial continues in teen’s murder
Ex-girlfriend says Longoria came home smelling of gas

Ex-girlfriend says Longoria came home smelling of gas

Snipped:

Much of today’s testimony has focused on the discovery and documentation of Alicia’s badly burned body, which was found three days after her disappearance at the asphalt plant several miles southwest of town. Investigators found her body still clothed, her shorts unbuttoned, and the remains of duct tape over her nose and mouth, KBI Senior Special Agent Cory Latham testified. She also had duct tape on one ankle.
~~~~~~~~

Part of this article is misleading. KBI Agent Cory Latham testified Alicia DeBolt's clothes fell off when Alicia's body was lifted to be put into a body bag. The KBI investigators put what was left of her clothes in 2 small cans which were introduced into evidence. The cans were not opened in court. Latham said the clothes under Alicia DeBolt (her back side) survived the fire better because they were somewhat protected from the intense heat and fire.

Also, the duct tape was removed before Alicia was put in the body bag to preserve whatever evidence KBI might be able to identify. Said that what was left of the duct tape could rub against the body bag and compromise evidence.

Duct tape not in good shape. In the Lab, a decision had to be made to either test for latent prints or DNA. They were not going to be able to test for both because of the condition of the duct tape. Because of the intense heat and fire, the duct tape yielded no prints which was not surprising. Latham said he requested the Lab test for latent prints. It has been his experience in burn cases that DNA would most likely be destroyed due to intense heat/fire.

Latham testified that Alicia had a piece of metal (jewelry) in her hand. Latham also demonstrated how Alicia's hands would contract due to the intense heat. Explained the muscles in the forearms and upper arms and how they would react to intense heat/fire which would cause a reaction in the hands.

Latham testified that there was jewelry and "bling" around the burned body. After the body was moved, there were many tiny, tiny pieces of bling. He said it was of the type that a shirt could have been decorated with.

GREAT BEND, Kan. — Investigators in the case of a Kansas man accused of killing a 14-year-old cheerleader methodically outlined for jurors Friday the condition of the teen's body when it was discovered at the asphalt plant where the suspect worked.
The testimony came on the second day of testimony in the capital murder trial of Adam Longoria, 38. The Great Bend man is accused of luring Alicia DeBolt into his vehicle on Aug. 21, 2010, with the promise of booze and a party before sexually assaulting her and killing her. He is also charged with vehicle burglary and theft connected to the crime.
KWCH-TV reported that Cory Latham, an agent for the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, described the crime scene photos as they were projected onto a screen in the courtroom. Latham explained that a body curls up when it is burned. He said charred pieces of what appeared to be duct tape was found across her mouth and nose, and the burned body appeared to have been fully clothed.
The agent's impassive testimony contrasted sharply with that of the asphalt plant employee who found the charred body three days after DeBolt went missing.
Plant worker Joel Cross testified he was working on a backhoe when he spotted what looked to be mannequin on the property. He looked closer after realizing flies were buzzing around the figure, and nudged the body with his foot to make sure it was real.
"It seemed very surreal at the time," Cross told jurors. "It had no humanlike features."
Longoria's live-in girlfriend in 2010, Eva Brown, also testified Friday. She said he came home on the night DeBolt disappeared smelling of gas, and washed his clothes and gym shoes, soaking the shoelaces in bleach. She said Longoria ripped up the t-shirt and asked Brown to get rid of them if she "loved him enough." She said she threw the shredded t-shirt out the window of her vehicle as she was driving and later showed police where it was.
Brown testified that Longoria told her to tell police he was at a local bar if police asked where he was that night. She said that Longoria had used her vehicle, and that it smelled of gasoline when she used it the next morning.
Longoria has a lengthy criminal record, and had been released from a Texas prison where he had been serving a seven-year sentence for aggravated robbery just three months before Alicia was killed.
During opening statements on Thursday, his attorney told jurors that the state's case is based on circumstantial evidence and is not as strong as prosecutors want jurors to believe.
The state is not seeking the death penalty, but if convicted of capital murder, Longoria could be sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Afternoon testimony Monday included Hugo Hernandez. Hernandez told the jury that he was called by Adam Longoria the day after Alicia Debolt disappeared.

Longoria, he said, asked him to lie and say that he was at a bar called Willie J's just north of Great Bend during the timeframe when prosecutors say Longoria drove to Debolt's house and picked her up on the premise that he would take her to a party.

Prosecutor Kevin O'Connor: "Were you with Adam Longoria the night of August 21st, 2010?"

Hernandez: "No, sir."

When asked why he told the police he was, Hernandez responded that he was scared and didn't know what to do because he had never been in that situation before.

Testimony has ended for the day, as the state presented all of its witnesses it had on the agenda for the day. The jury will take up their seats in the courtroom again at 9:00 Tuesday morning.

Update: Monday, April 2, 2012

Two detectives have taken the stand in Adam Longoria's capital murder trial.

First, KBI Senior Special Agent Terry Millard told the jury he was surprised to find Adam Longoria at the Debolt house trying to help the family organize a search party for the missing girl.

"He said he wanted to help find 'that girl,'" Millard said. "He stated that he had heard rumors that people were saying he was involved and he wanted to set the record straight."

Shortly thereafter, Dawn and Holly Debolt called Great Bend Police Detective Heather Smith. While they were talking, Longoria showed up.

Smith later discovered that Eva Brown, Longoria's then-girlfriend, had told police that the man known as "Rocco" had bleached his clothing, including his shoelaces, and asked her to dispose of his gasoline-stained grey Nike t-shirt.

"If you love me, you'll do it," Longoria reportedly said to her.

Smith told the jury that it became clear that the shirt had been torn into pieces and discarded along several Great Bend streets. It was later swept up by street maintenance crews, but an extensive search of the Great Bend compost site turned up two of the pieces. Detective Smith held them up for the jury to see.

So far, about 20 of the prosecution's 171 potential witnesses have testified. Testumony is expected to last at least another week before Longoria will have a chance to present his own evidence.

Monday, April 2, 2012

Prosecutors continue to build their case in the capital murder trial of a man charged with killing a Great Bend teenager.

Adam Longoria is on trial for the murder and rape of 14-year-old Alicia DeBolt in August of 2010. Her badly burned body was found at an asphalt plant outside Great Bend three days after she went missing. Longoria worked at the plant.

Prosecutors have argued Longoria was obsessed with the teen cheerleader, sending her dozens and dozens of text messages in the days before her death.

Defense attorneys are set to prove there is no concrete evidence linking Longoria to Debolt's death.

The trial is expected to last through the week.

If Longoria is convicted, he will face life in prison without parole.

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012 | Posted by Matt Unruh DNA Testing Discussed in Adam Longoria Jury Trial Tuesday

Testimony continued Tuesday in the Adam Longoria Jury Trial, the man charged with the Capital Murder of 14-year-old Alicia Debolt. Erick Herrera testified that he was with Emmanuel Farell, and Ivan Ramirez at a wedding party the night of August 21st, 2010. They later went to Willy J’s, and then to another party into the early morning hours of August 22nd. Herrera said that the next day, Adam Longoria asked him what he did the night before, which Herrera told him.

HERRERA-TO LIE TO THEM by Matt Unruh

Herrera said he later talked to police and told them the truth. He said he met with Longoria soon after that and Longoria asked Herrera what he told police. Herrera said he told Longoria that he told the truth, and Longoria wasn’t upset or worried.

Forensics Scientist and DNA expert James Newman also testified Tuesday. He said he sampled two separate semenole stains on the floor mat of Eva Brown’s Ford Escape that Longoria was known to drive frequently.

NEWMAN-THAT’S CORRECT by Matt Unruh

Newman said the mixture of DNA consisted of Longoria’s semenole fluid and some form of bodily fluid from Debolt. He said there was another stain in the car that had consisted of semenole fluid that matched the DNA of Longoria and an unknown contributor. He said there was a small amount of male DNA found in the mouth of Debolt, but its unknown who the contributor is. Testimony continues Wednesday at 9am in Barton County District Court.

Here's some of the testimony we missed: Rolando Molina testified he was at the party in July 2010 when Longoria and DeBolt first met. He said Longroria was hitting on DeBolt and offered to buy her clothes and take to a nail salon. Molina also said days later Alicia told him Longoria kept texting her and that it creeped her out. Emmanuel Ferrell testified Longoria asked him to lie and say he was at Willy J'S the night of Alicia's disappearance. Sloan Folk testified she was working at the AmPride store a few days after Alicia went missing. She said Longoria came in, picked up a drink and began walking out of the store without paying. Wen she confronted him he apologized and said he was distracted by the whole missing girl thing. Folk said Longoria then proceeded to tell her his whole story about being at Willy J's that night.

Preparing for day 3 of the Longoria testimony. Court appears to be running late, but that's not unusual

Appears court is close to starting in Great Bend. Everyone has just walked in the courtroom.

Watch the Longoria live feed at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] State is calling its next witness, but she does not wish to be broadcast at all.

We have someone inside the courtroom taking notes, so I'll let you know who it is and what she says.

A former friend named Miguel has just taken the stand. He was at a birthday party with Longoria and Alicia Debolt

He testified that it appeared Longoria was following the girl around and was obviously "interested" in her.

During a discussion, Miguel told Longoria "Don't you think she's a little young for you?" He didn't respond.

Miguel had a conversation with Longoria on Aug. 25, when Longoria told him the party he'd invited Debolt to had never happened.

Miguel also testifies that Longoria had often mentioned that he was texting back and forth with Debolt.

Miguel has stepped down from the stand. Emmanuel Ferrel is next. He has ordered not to be broadcast.

New witness on the stand in Longoria trial. Eric Moore is a latent fingerprint examiner for the KBI.

Moore says he found no viable fingerprints on the oil jug Longoria might have used to transport gasoline, or Debolt's cell phone.

But Moore did find a fingerprint on the drivers side door of the Ford Explorer that belonged to Longoria's girlfriend.

Moore was asked to compare the print to Adam Longoria's, but it did not match.

He could not compare the print to Alicia Debolt because he couldn't get a true print from her hand, her body was so badly burned.

Testimony has broken off for the lunch hour.

Brian Heap is a reporter for kwch these are just some of the tweets ive found.

Apparently, Ferrell testified Longoria told him he'd had sex with deBol in his car.
by Brian Heap 1:00 PM

I'm told the medical examiner testified just before lunch. Dr. Scott Kipper declined audio/video. He said Alicia was identified through dental records. He said the cause of death was "undetermined homicidal violence". He said many questions couldn't be answered because of the condition of the burned body.
by Brian Heap 11:10 AM

Interesting comment on blog:

Adam Longoria has a device on his leg that is connected to a device that is in posession of at least one of the sheriffs officers. if he tries to run they push a button that drops him in his tracks. I do know this to be true. This is in place because of no handcuffs.
by gb 2:55 PM

Newman: Several possible explanations for the male DNA. Something may have happened in the quality control of the swabs used. 16:20:45 "It could be that Alicia DeBolt had contact with another man." It could be something as simple as sharing a drinking straw.

Jared Cerullo ‏ @KAKEJared

Testimony resumes after the lunch break in the Longoria trial.

Eric Herrera now on the stand. Testifying that he had been at Willie J's the night Alicia Debolt vanished.

Herrera says Longoria also asked him to lie to police about his whereabouts the night Alicia Debolt vanished.

This is at least the fourth witness who has told the jury that Adam Longoria asked them to make up an alibi for him.

There must have been a defense objection. Judge and attorneys have abruptly left the courtroom with the witness still on the stand.

Herrera was telling court that he told the cops the truth that night and that Longoria wasn't phased because he "passed his polygraph."

DNA evidence was the focus of testimony Tuesday afternoon in the trial of Adam Longoria. Tuesday marks the fourth day of his trial. Longoria is accused of killing 14-year-old Alicia DeBolt and setting her body on fire in August 2010.

KBI forensic scientist James Newman testified about searching Longoria's girlfriends SUV. He didn't detect any blood in the vehicle, but he did find seminal fluid. The fluid was found on the driver's side floor mat, the edge of the seat and gas pedal. He says the fluid found is consistent with it being brought into the vehicle by a foot.Newman says one sample found a mixture of DeBolt and Longoria's DNA. He says there was also a small amount of male DNA evidence other than Longoria's. They've ruled out that the small sample belonged to any of Longoria's friends.

He says there are several possible explanations for the additional male DNA. Newman says something may have happened in the quality control of the swabs used. He says it could be that Alicia DeBolt had contact with another man, something as simple as sharing a drinking straw. Newman testified they couldn't determine what type of DeBolt's body fluid was in the sample mixed with semen.

Newman will be back on the stand Wednesday morning for questioning by the defense.

Earlier in the day, prosecutors continued to lay out how Longoria asked people to lie about where he was the night DeBolt went missing.

A man named Rolando Molina testified he was at the party in July 2010 when Longoria and DeBolt first met. He witnessed Longoria ask DeBolt if she had a boyfriend. Molina says Longoria then asked her out, offered to by her clothes and get her nails done. Molina thought it was strange because he knew their age difference. Molina also said days later DeBolt, told him Longoria kept texting her and that it creeped her out.

Another witness, Emmanuel Ferrell testified he knew DeBolt but didn't know her age. He says he saw the conversation between Longoria and DeBolt when they first met. Ferrell said Longoria told him he'd had sex with DeBolt in his car. Ferrell says after DeBolt went missing, Longoria asked him for an alibi. He says Longoria called and texted him repeatedly asking Ferrell to lie to police about the two of them being together the night DeBolt disappeared.

According to court filings in this case, Longoria, in a statement to police, said he was with Ferrell and Erick Herrera at Willy J's shortly before 11:00 p.m. That's roughly the same time DeBolt was seen getting into the SUV in her mother's driveway. The SUV matches the description of the SUV Longoria was driving that night. DeBolt was supposed to go to a party and be home at midnight, but that never happened.

Monday, two Great Bend police officers also testified about inconsistencies in Longoria's story. First, he denied even knowing DeBolt, then admitted texting her on behalf of Ivan. Then, he admitted giving the teen his cell phone number to ensure she got home safely from a party.

Detective Heather Smith showed jurors pieces of a ripped up Nike t-shirt recovered from piles of street sweeper trash. Prosecutors believe it's the same shirt Longoria was wearing when he killed DeBolt and the same shirt his ex-girlfriend Eva Brown admitted throwing out the window of her SUV. Also, an acquaintance of Longoria's, Hugo Hernandez, testified Longoria asked him to lie to police and make-up an alibi for him -- that he was at Willy J's the night Alicia went missing.

A woman named Crystal Easley testified about items Longoria tried to mail to Texas just before he left town August 27, 2010. Easley is a window clerk at the Great Bend Post Office. She said Longoria bought a box and some packing tape. Inside the box, he placed two cowboy hats, shirts, boots, and a smaller box containing unknown items. Easley said he addressed the package to himself at a P.O. Box in Texas. He left, telling Easley he was never coming back to Great Bend. It appears Easley later recognized Longoria from media bulletins and called police to tell them about the package before it was ever actually mailed.

Normal Suspect's texts had victim 'freaking out'

Post by Wrapitup on Wed Apr 04, 2012 11:20 am

By Darcy Gray - The Hutchinson News - [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

GREAT BEND - About a week before her burned body was discovered in August 2010, 14-year-old Alicia DeBolt was "freaking out" over relentless text messages from 38-year-old Adam Longoria, a witness testified Tuesday.

Longoria is standing trial before Barton County District Judge Hannelore Kitts on a capital murder charge in the death of DeBolt, who was last seen leaving her Great Bend home Aug. 21, 2010, in a black SUV to go to a party. Her body was found three days later at Venture Corp.'s Dundee asphalt plant southwest of Great Bend where Longoria worked. He is also charged with vehicle burglary and theft for allegedly stealing a Venture Corp. vehicle Aug. 27, 2010, to flee amid the homicide investigation.

Rolando Molina, 19, testified Tuesday that he talked to DeBolt about a week before her disappearance.
"She was freaking out because Adam Longoria kept texting her," Molina said when questioned by Kevin O'Connor, special assistant Kansas attorney general. "I told her to ignore the text messages."

Testimony also indicated Longoria flirted with DeBolt when he saw her in July 2010 at a birthday party at his Great Bend home for his then-girlfriend Eva Brown.

Witnesses who testified Tuesday said Longoria ignored comments DeBolt was too young for him, and after she disappeared the night of Aug. 21, 2010, he reportedly gave different accounts of where he was that night and asked people to lie to investigators.

A forensic pathologist testified DeBolt died of undetermined homicidal violence. Testimony Tuesday from forensic scientists with the Kansas Bureau of Investigation revealed gas was found on and around the girl at the asphalt plant, gas was found in an Auto Zone oil jug found next to a cemetery fence by the asphalt plant, and gas was found on Longoria's white Nike shoes he reportedly wore the night DeBolt disappeared. A mixture of DNA from both DeBolt and Longoria, including Longoria's seminal fluid, was found on the driver's floor mat in the black Ford Escape Longoria shared with Brown.

The capital murder charge against Longoria alleges he killed her amid or after criminal sodomy or attempted rape. The state is not pursuing the death penalty, but if Longoria is convicted of capital murder, he faces a sentence of life in prison without parole.

Molina testified Tuesday that most of the people at the party at Longoria's house in July 2010 were teenagers, including DeBolt.

Molina said the party was the first time he met Longoria, and he overheard a conversation between Longoria and DeBolt.

"He asked her if she had a boyfriend, and she said yes ... they were broken up at the time," Molina testified.

Longoria told DeBolt that if she would go out with him, he would buy her clothes, take her out to dinner and get her "nose done," Molina said, adding that it was "weird, because (Longoria) was pretty old and she was pretty young."

Emmanuel Ferrel, 21, and Miguel Armendariz, 25, testified they were also at the party in July 2010 at Longoria's house. Under cross-examination by Tim Frieden, Longoria's attorney with the Kansas Death Penalty Defense Unit, Ferrel acknowledged he remembered having a conversation with Longoria after the party in which Longoria said he had sex with DeBolt in his car.

Armendariz testified he told Longoria at the party that DeBolt was too young for him, but Longoria "didn't seem to care."

Erick Herrera, 21, testified Tuesday that he, Ferrel and Ivan Ramirez were "walking around" on Aug. 22, 2010, the day after DeBolt's disappearance, when they walked by Longoria's house and Longoria called them over.

"First, he wanted to know what we'd done that night, where we'd been ..." Herrera said. "He asked if we knew about the missing girl."

Both Herrera and Ferrel testified Longoria, also known as "Rocko," asked them to lie and tell investigators he was at Willie J's nightclub with them the night DeBolt went missing.

Molina said Ramirez was his cousin who moved to Mexico in April 2011 after he lost his job and his father was deported. According to Molina, Ramirez and Ferrel were at a wedding party with him the night of Aug. 21, 2010, and left "around 10 or 11." Ferrel testified the pair left the party around midnight and went to Willie J's, where they stayed until at least 1:30 a.m.

Sloan Folk was working as a clerk at Ampride on Aug. 23, 2010, when Longoria came in before closing at 10 p.m. and almost left without paying for a drink. Longoria said "his mind was in another place" and was on the "missing girl" before he paid for the drink.

She said she didn't know Longoria, but he proceeded to tell her that his wife was friends with DeBolt and that his friends used his phone to text DeBolt. He said he was at Willie J's with his wife the night DeBolt disappeared, and they got there at 11 p.m. and were there for five hours, Folk testified. Longoria also said DeBolt asked him to pick her up that night while he was at Willie J's, but her friends had his phone, Folk testified.

Longoria said a red pickup and a black SUV "like the one he was driving" were involved in DeBolt's disappearance, and he said "Ivan Ramirez was involved" but he didn't know Ramirez, Folk said. She said she realized later who Longoria was after she "saw him on the news."

Kawailanilehua "Hua" Martinez testified she also talked to Longoria on Aug. 23, 2010, and he said "someone was messing with his life" and "trying to pin it on him." Longoria said he wasn't at Willie J's on Aug. 21, the night DeBolt disappeared and he "might know who did it but wasn't going to tell," Martinez testified. On Aug. 27, 2010, however, Longoria showed up at her house in a white Venture Corp. SUV, asked her to take him to the bank so he could pay her back the $250 he owed her, and then said he had been at Willie J's the night DeBolt disappeared, according to Martinez.

Longoria didn't want to use the SUV to go to the bank because "he didn't want his boss to see him in it," testified Alleda Hoilien, Martinez's mother. After going to the bank, Longoria said he was headed to Oklahoma and got in the Venture Corp. SUV and left, Martinez said.

Great Bend U.S. Postal Service clerk Crystal Easley said Longoria shipped a package Aug. 27, 2010, to a post office box in Texas, and the package with two cowboy hats, shirts and boots was addressed to himself.

"He said he had a rodeo to go to," Easley said. "He seemed a little scatterbrained ... he had to go out at least twice and left his phone and keys at the window."

Longoria bought tape, so before he left, Easley asked him if he wanted to keep the rest of the tape he didn't use.

"He said, 'I don't want it. Leave it for someone else because I'm never coming back to Great Bend,'" Easley testified.

Normal Re: Adam Joseph "Rocco" Longoria arrest in Alicia Debolt, age 14./Update: Longoria found GUILTY OF CAPITAL MURDER & CRIMINAL SODOMY!Update: Adam Longoria get Life In Prison!!

By SUSAN THACKER and DALE HOGG


Adam Longoria started flirting with Alicia DeBolt the first time he met her on July 7, 2010, according to the testimony of Rolando Molina, who recalled that meeting.
It was at Longoria’s house, and he was throwing a birthday party for his girlfriend, Eva Brown.

Molina was only 17 years old at the time, and DeBolt was 14. They sat with Longoria and talked, Molina said Tuesday in Barton County District Court, as Longoria’s capital murder trial continued.

“He asked her if she had a boyfriend and she said yes,” Molina said. But Longoria said he’d like to take her out, buy her a fake ID and clothes.

“How did that make you feel?” Assistant Attorney General Kevin O’Connor asked.

“Weird,” Molina said. “Because he was pretty old and she was young.” He also testified that DeBolt gave Longoria her cellphone number before she left the party.
Alicia DeBolt disappeared the night of Aug. 21, 2010, and her charred remains were found three days later at an asphalt plant near Dundee. Longoria is on trial for allegedly murdering her after an attempted sexual assault.

Molina was at a friend’s wedding party near Heizer Park the night of Aug. 21, 2010, along with Ivan Ramirez, Emmanuel Ferrel and Erick Herrera, he said. He stayed until 1 a.m., although Ramirez and Ferrel left sometime earlier, perhaps 10 or 11 p.m.

Molina said he’d seen Alicia DeBolt a week earlier. “She was freaking out because Adam Longoria kept texting her,” Molina said. “I told her to ignore the text messages.” (How did he get her cell number???)

Ferrel was at a wedding party the night of Aug. 21, then went to Willy J’s “around 9:30 or so” and stayed there until around 1:30 a.m. He named the friends he was with, and who were still there when he left.

After DeBolt disappeared, Ferrel said Longoria contacted him. “He became paranoid, trying to get me to give an alibi, saying he was with me at Willy J’s.”

“What did he want?” O’Connor asked.

“To lie for him, tell the police,” Ferrel said. “He was texting me like crazy.”

Sloan Folk testified that she was a clerk at Great Bend Ampride in August of 2010. On Aug. 23, the day before DeBolt’s body was found, a man came in and got a soft drink, then started to leave without paying. They had an odd conversation, which she recalled and told police about after she saw him on the TV news. It was Adam Longoria.

Folk said he told her he wasn’t trying to steal the soda, that “his mind was in other places.”

What was on his mind, Assistant Attorney General Andrew Bauch asked? “The missing girl,” Folk said. In their brief conversation, Longoria told her other people had used his phone to send text messages to the girl before she went missing. He also said he’d been at Willy J’s that night with his wife.

“Did he tell you an Ivan Ramirez was involved?”

“Yes,” Folk said. Longoria told her Alicia had sent him a text asking him to pick her up, but he didn’t get the message because friends of Alicia had taken his phone.
There was also testimony from Dr. Scott Kipper, deputy coroner and medical examiner in Sedgwick County, who performed the autopsy on DeBolt. Dental records confirmed the body was hers.

Fire had destroyed much of the evidence. “On the face she had what looked to be the remains of duct tape,” Kipper said. The tape was also on one leg. Some beads or jewelry were clutched in one hand.

The only areas not burned were on her backside, where the ground protected the body from fire, he said. The burn patterns indicated she was deceased before her body was set on fire; the cause of death is “undetermined homicidal violence.”

Defense attorney Jeff Wicks asked, “You can’t tell us exactly how she died?” Kipper said he could not; nor could he say who killed Alicia DeBolt.

DNA evidence
At lease one the stains found on the floor mat of the 2002 Ford Escape driven by Longoria contained his semen and what is possibly the saliva of DeBolt, said a Kansas Bureau of Investigation forensic scientist testifying Tuesday afternoon.

James Newman told the jury that one of the samples of mixed DNA he found on the floor of the driver’s seat was large enough to get a positive match to Longoria’s seminal fluid. The other contributor to the sample was definitely DeBolt, but the test for saliva is lest conclusive, so saliva could not be confirmed as the source.

DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, “is the basic building block of life,” Newman said. No two humans, except identical twins, will have the same DNA profile.

Newman said forensic scientists test for 16 areas and if they can match two samples on all 16 points, they are considered to come from the same individual. Comparing a blood sample from Longoria and an oral swab taken from DeBolt’s body to the stain in the Escape, a match was made.

In a second, smaller mixed stain, Longoria’s DNA was present, but the second contributor could not be determined.

One of the swabs, which contained DeBolt’s DNA swiped from the inside of the deceased girl’s cheek, held DNA from an unknown male. The source of this remains undetermined, but possible contamination of the testing equipment was not ruled out as a cause.

The 16 DNA points compared are but a small percentage of a person’s total DNA, Newman said. Statistically, he said the chance of any two individuals matching even the 16 are anywhere from the hundreds of thousands to the quintillions.

Court adjourned Tuesday after the prosecution finished its direct examination.

Cross examination by the defense will begin This morning.

Also from the KBI, forensic chemist Chris Riddle said he examined soil samples taken from under where DeBolt’s burned body was found at the Venture asphalt plant, and clothing samples and shoes taken from her body. He found traces of gasoline in all of them. He also found gas in an Auto Zone oil jug found near the crime scene.

However, under cross examination, he said he could not say what brand of gasoline it was, where it came from, how long it had been there or who put it there.

In other afternoon testimony, Erick Herrera said he and his friends had been to a wedding dance and out partying the night of Aug. 21, 2010, when DeBolt was killed. Since Longoria knew him, he asked Herrera on Sunday to say he was at the bar Willy J’s with Herrera. “He asked us to lie for him.”

But, later, he when asked by Longoria what he told the Great Bend Police, he said he told them the truth.

Herrera said Longoria didn’t seem to care.

Kawailailehua Martinez said she was with her mother when Longoria told her “they” were trying to pin DeBolt’s disappearance on him. This was early Tuesday, Aug. 24, 2010. He also said he was not at Willy J’s.

The court also learned Longoria came to their house on Friday, Aug. 27, 1010, in a white Venture Corporation truck and borrowed the family car to run some errands. He returned, said he was going to Oklahoma and left in the truck.

Later that day, however, he said he was at the bar and that he knew who was responsible for DeBolt disappearing.

Crystal Easley, a window clerk at the Great Bend Post Office, said Longoria came in on Friday, Aug. 27, 2010, and said he had a rodeo to go to and wanted to send some stuff to Texas, including cowboy hats, boots, shirts and other unidentified items. But, “he seemed scattered brained, nervous.”

He made trips to his car to get items he forgot, and left without his cell phone and keys.

When she went back to mail the box, she heard her coworkers talking about the Longoria case and the address where a search warrant had been served. She recognized it as the return address on the package and called authorities.

Normal Prosecution: Text messages paint picture

Post by Wrapitup on Thu Apr 05, 2012 2:13 am

By Darcy Gray - The Hutchinson News - [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

GREAT BEND - "Hey, it's Alicia."

"Good morning beautiful, and I got your text."

Those were the first text messages exchanged between 14-year-old Alicia DeBolt and 38-year-old Adam Joseph Longoria on July 18, 2010, the morning after the pair reportedly met at a party at Longoria's Great Bend home, according to Stephanie Smith, an intelligence analyst with the Kansas Bureau of Investigation.

Smith testified Wednesday before Barton County District Judge Hannelore Kitts in the eighth day of trial for Longoria, who is charged with capital murder in DeBolt's August 2010 death.

Smith said at least 80 text messages were exchanged between the pair's cellphones on July 18, 2010, including messages from Longoria phone calling DeBolt "hot stuff" and offering to take her to a movie.

DeBolt was last seen the night of Aug. 21, 2010, leaving her Great Bend home in a black SUV to go to a party. Her burned body was found three days later at a Venture Corp.'s Dundee asphalt plant near Great Bend where Longoria worked.

More than 200 text messages between DeBolt and Longoria were read aloud Wednesday to the jury, in an attempt to reveal what prosecutors with the Kansas Attorney General's Office have described as Longoria's growing obsession with the girl.

In the messages, Longoria allegedly lies about his age, and on the night of Aug. 21, 2010, offers to take DeBolt out partying.

Longoria's attorneys with the Kansas Death Penalty Defense Unit argue, however, that there is no evidence of who sent the text messages from the phones.

The state is not seeking the death penalty for Longoria, but if convicted of capital murder, he faces a sentence of life in prison without parole. The capital murder charge alleges Longoria killed DeBolt amid or after criminal sodomy or attempted rape.

Text messages

On July 18, 2010, DeBolt received text messages from Longoria thanking her for coming to his party. He allegedly calls her "miss shy."

"I'm not shy," DeBolt says in a text message to Longoria's phone at 11:04 a.m. July 18.

"In some ways you are, and I like that," Longoria replies.

"Ok, well good," DeBolt says.

Minutes later, Longoria asks DeBolt to send him a picture and then says, "Damn, I like."

DeBolt asks Longoria, "How old are you?" and he allegedly replies with, "Does it matter?"

He asks for another picture, and when he doesn't get one, Longoria allegedly says, "You don't love me anymore, and I'm 25. Is that good or bad? ... Am I too old for you?"

At 6:06 p.m. July 18, DeBolt sends Longoria a text message that says, "I don't even know you. When are we going to party again?" She tells him they're "just friends" when he asks if she is going to be his date.

On July 20, 2010, DeBolt receives a text message from Longoria's phone saying he hasn't heard from her and he misses her. He offers to pick her up from work that day and take her out to "get a bite later."

"I'll even get you something to drink," Longoria allegedly tells DeBolt.

On July 21, Eva Brown, Longoria's then-girlfriend, sends DeBolt a text message asking who she is, her age how old she is and how she knows Longoria. Brown says Longoria is claiming DeBolt is his cousin, and DeBolt says she is his friend.

"Well, he ain't your friend no more, got that?" Brown says in a message to DeBolt, adding that she's Longoria's wife.

"She's your wife!!!!??" DeBolt asks Longoria. He denies it and tells DeBolt she has "nothing to worry about."

On July 31, Longoria again offers to pick up DeBolt and also asks her repeatedly for a picture.

"That's screwed up I can't have my pic," one message states, followed by, "I want my pic!" and "Send me my pic!"

On Aug. 15, DeBolt gets text messages from Longoria's cellphone telling her it's "Adam."

She replies, "Oh."

"Is that an oh that you don't want to talk to me?" he asks.

"Yeah," DeBolt says.

"What did I do to you?" Longoria asks, but he doesn't get a response.

On Aug. 21, the day DeBolt disappeared, she gets text messages from Longoria's cellphone offering to pick her up to go partying. Shortly after 10 p.m. he tells her he has five cases of beer, one house and "there will be lots of people." She agrees to go and gives Longoria her address. DeBolt tells a friend she can come, too, and sends text messages to other friends about what she is going to wear and take to her upcoming first day of high school.

"I'm here," Longoria says at 11:01 p.m. DeBolt continues to exchange text messages with a friend until 11:20 p.m., and her phone's signal ceases at 11:40 p.m., Smith testified Wednesday.

DeBolt's mother, Tamara Conrad, sends her daughter messages at 12:11 and 12:24 a.m. Aug. 22 asking DeBolt where she is at, and reminding her it's past her curfew.

At 12:29 a.m., DeBolt's friend sends her a text message asking her why she ditched her.

The last message sent from Longoria's phone to DeBolt's phone - at 12:57 a.m. on Aug. 22, 2010 - says, "There isn't going to be a party. Nevermind."

Forensic evidence

Both the prosecution and the defense agreed Wednesday that a swab test from DeBolt's mouth during an autopsy revealed there was unknown male DNA in her mouth.

James Newman, KBI forensic scientist, testified the DNA was a small amount - only enough for a partial profile. Numerous people were tested, including DeBolt's family and those who conducted the autopsy at the Sedgwick County Regional Forensic Science Center, in an attempt to see if the DNA came from contamination that may have occurred when investigators handled DeBolt's body.

Under cross-examination by Tim Frieden, Longoria's attorney with the Kansas Death Penalty Defense Unit, Newman said it was possible the DNA came from a sexual assault that occurred shortly before DeBolt's death. But when questioned by Kevin O'Connor, special assistant Kansas attorney general, Newman said it was also possible the unknown DNA could have come from DeBolt kissing someone or sharing a drink.

According to Newman, six hours is typically the limit on the amount of time a person's DNA profile can be detected in someone's mouth after it's deposited there.

A mixture of DNA from both DeBolt and Longoria, including Longoria's seminal fluid, was found on the driver's side floor mat of the black Ford Escape that Longoria reportedly drove the night of DeBolt's disappearance.

Longoria is also charged with vehicle burglary and theft for allegedly stealing a Venture Corp. vehicle Aug. 27, 2010, to flee amid the homicide investigation.

Jurors watched a videotape of Lt. Andrew Dean with the Kansas Highway Patrol parked behind the white Ford Explorer on Aug. 27, 2010, just north of I-70 west of Salina, where Longoria was taken into custody. Law enforcement had used the Venture Corp. cellphone inside the SUV to track Longoria's whereabouts after the SUV was reported stolen, Dean said.

OK, I've been holding back on saying this and I hope I don't piss anyone off. But, Alicia should have NEVER given her cell number to this idiot. She should have never sent him a pic or pics and she should have ceased texting him. Had she completely ignored this POS, she would be alive today. I think she was extremely naive and it was to her detriment and death. Am I blaming her? NO. I am just saying she shouldn't have given this POS the time of day!! The poor kid!!

Wrap I personally dont think anything anyone said about this case would offend me except NOT GUILTY! Believe me I have been through the what mother would let her 14 yr old daughter out at 11 at night and not know who she was going with. What 14 yr old in her right mind would be texting and hanging out with a 36 yr old man. My feelings on all this are Great Bend is a small town not quite as small as where I live, but small. I think when we live in a smaller community we dont think of things like this happening,so we are more apt to let our guard down. I personally never let my 14 yr olds out that late at night unless it was a school function but I know several who do.

As for her giving him her # and texting him and sending pics, He told her he was 25 not 36 and im sure from whats been said lavished her with attention and made her feel grown up. He groomed her into what he wanted. He knew just what to do to make her feel like an adult and to feel special. From testimony its been pretty clear to me that she was sexually active with him on one or more occasions before the fateful night.

There is alot of blame to go around in this case. Eva Brown for bringing this monster home with her from prison, her mother for not keeping her in that late at night (although I think it could and probley would have would have happened just as easily at 11am). LE for not keeping a better eye on his where abouts (they were using him as a drug informant and allowed him to feel at ease being in the company of these teenagers). The friends she had that knew she was seeing him, teenage girls are going to tell thier friends. But first and foremost Adam Longoria.

GREAT BEND — Adam Longoria talked about having sex with 14-year-old Alicia DeBolt in his car after meeting her at a party, a witness testified Tuesday.
At the party, at his home in July 2010, he told her that if she would go out with him, he would get her a fake ID and clothes and take her out to eat, which was “weird” because Longoria was 36 and Alicia was 14, another witness said. Alicia was “freaking out” because Longoria was sending her text messages after he got her cellphone number from her, the witness said.
Prosecutors are trying to show that Longoria became obsessed with the girl, picked her up from her house the night of Aug. 21, 2010, sodomized her or tried to rape her, killed her and burned her body. They have charged him with capital murder.
Defense attorneys are trying to suggest that someone else killed Alicia and that the evidence against Longoria is circumstantial.
Prosecutors also brought forth testimony Tuesday that Longoria was going around Great Bend asking people to lie about his whereabouts the night Alicia disappeared and trying to clear himself.
Tuesday’s other testimony dealt with physical evidence: gasoline discovered in items where her body was found burned, and a mix of Longoria’s DNA and her DNA in semen left on the driver’s-side floor mat of the black SUV he drove the night she disappeared.
KBI forensic scientist James Newman said he couldn’t say when the semen stain got on the mat. But the fact that it hadn’t degraded meant it was likely more recent, he testified.
The testimony about sex between Longoria and Alicia came when one of his defense attorneys asked Emmanuel Ferrel whether he had a conversation with Longoria after the party where Longoria met Alicia.
After word spread that Alicia was missing, Longoria “became paranoid” about having an alibi for the night she disappeared, Ferrel said. Longoria wanted him to tell investigators that Longoria was with others at a bar, Ferrel said. Longoria repeatedly called and sent text messages asking Ferrel to “lie for him,” Ferrel said.
Miguel Armendariz testified that Longoria acted interested in Alicia at the party and “wanted to have something with her.” When Armendariz told Longoria she was too young, “he didn’t seem to care,” Armendariz said.
Armendariz said Longoria never came over and worked on his car the night Alicia disappeared, contrary to what Longoria told others.
Longoria said he let his friends use his cellphone the night Alicia disappeared and that they sent a text message to her inviting her to a party.
Jurors saw photographs of the girl’s badly burned body. Burning is a way to destroy or hide evidence, forensic pathologist Scott Kipper testified. The evidence was consistent with her being dead and her body then being set on fire, Kipper said.
Although a precise cause of her death couldn’t be determined because of the damage to her body, the death was ruled a homicide partly because melted remnants of duct tape had been found on her face and her lower leg.
Under questioning from a defense attorney, Kipper conceded that he couldn’t tell how she died or who did it.
Whoever burned her body used gasoline. Testing found gasoline in the soil around her body and on remnants of her clothing and on shoes Longoria allegedly wore, said Chris Riddle, a chemist for the Kansas Bureau of Investigation. Other testing found gasoline in an oil jug found in the area of the body.
Tuesday’s testimony about the gasoline followed testimony that Longoria bought about half a gallon of gas the night Alicia disappeared, and video showed him reaching into a convenience store trash can and removing something.
By Aug. 27, three days after Alicia’s body was found in a secluded area at an asphalt plant outside town, postal clerk Crystal Easley testified, Longoria came in to mail cowboy hats, boots and other items to a Texas address.
He seemed “a little scatter-brained,” having to go back and forth to his car to get things, Easley said.
“I’m never coming back to Great Bend again,” he told her.

Believe me I have been through the what mother would let her 14 yr old daughter out at 11 at night and not know who she was going with. What 14 yr old in her right mind would be texting and hanging out with a 36 yr old man. My feelings on all this are Great Bend is a small town not quite as small as where I live, but small. I think when we live in a smaller community we dont think of things like this happening,so we are more apt to let our guard down. I personally never let my 14 yr olds out that late at night unless it was a school function but I know several who do.

As for her giving him her # and texting him and sending pics, He told her he was 25 not 36 and im sure from whats been said lavished her with attention and made her feel grown up. He groomed her into what he wanted. He knew just what to do to make her feel like an adult and to feel special. From testimony its been pretty clear to me that she was sexually active with him on one or more occasions before the fateful night.

Eva Brown for bringing this monster home with her from prison, her mother for not keeping her in that late at night (although I think it could and probley would have would have happened just as easily at 11am).

So true this could have happened at 11 am. Thanks for pointing that out to me. Was she sexually active with him? OMG that grosses me out.

RileysMom I like the posts your making in the many of the threads including this one.

I dont have links for what im about to say all though Im sure there are some out there...When court started this morning the prosecution rested. The Defense short of sidebar took less than or possibly an hour, went to lunch and rested, No Rebuttal witnesses from the prosecution. The judge adjorned court after the lunch hour until tomorrow at 9 am when they will start closing statements....My prediction is we have a verdict before noon...HE HAS NO DEFENSE!

GREAT BEND — A judge adjourned Adam Longoria’s capital murder trial early today, and his defense lawyers rested their case without calling him to testify.

Judge Hannelore Kitts sent jurors home shortly after their lunch break. That means the jury likely will hear final arguments Friday and begin deliberating on a verdict. Longoria, 38, is charged in the August 2010 killing of 14-year-old Alicia DeBolt.

Before lunch, a friend of Alicia’s testified that Alicia told her by cellphone that she was getting into a vehicle with a man with a different name than Longoria’s around the time she disappeared.

The friend was among eight witnesses who testified earlier today after being called by defense attorneys. The prosecution rested its case earlier this morning.

Today’s testimony about the phone conversation between Alicia and her friend followed testimony brought by the prosecution Wednesday showing that text messages from Longoria’s phone to Alicia’s had him picking her up from her house the night she disappeared.

The defense is trying to show that someone other than Longoria was involved in Alicia’s death. Part of the defense is to raise the idea that other vehicles, not the one Longoria was driving the night Alicia disappeared, were involved in her disappearance or killing.

One witness testified that about 3 1/2 hours after Alicia was last seen getting into an SUV outside her house, the witness saw three vehicles exit a county road that leads to the asphalt plant where Alicia’s badly burned body was found three days after she disappeared.

Longoria would face life in prison without parole if convicted of capital murder, a charge that can bring the death penalty. But prosecutors chose not to pursue the death penalty in his case, and Alicia’s family has publicly supported that decision.
