Police then seized both devices from Hindi and six days later, on February 28, Detective Boston filed an application for a search warrant with the Bucks County District Attorney's office with a request to conduct a forensic examination including, but not limited to, creating a forensic image of the hard drive from the digital camera and then examining files or data relative to the occurrences on February 22.
They also requested permission to conduct a similar examination of Hindi's computer so that the files on the computer that were transferred and/or accessed on or about February 22, 2011 could be recovered. The request for a search warrant was approved on the date of the application by the DA's office.
Readers may recognize a few discrepancies between the statements given to police and the video of the incident. But, one issue that is not mentioned in the aforementioned affidavit is possible evidence of a crime recorded by the other occupant of Mr. Olsen's car, namely Stanimir Tesrovski.
Did the Warminster Police seize and apply for a separate search warrant of the cell phone that Mr. Tesrovski is holding out the window of Mr. Olsen's car during the incident?
The parties involved dispute whether Enoch was assaulted by Olsen as she filmed him with the video camera. Whatever contact was made caused the camera to bounce around making it impossible to easily assess the physical exchange between Olsen and Enoch as well as between Hindi and Olsen. Is there reasonable cause to believe that the cell phone contains images or video of those events in question?
Stay tuned to opednews for updates on this case, including the eventual findings of the investigation by the Warminster Police Department and Bucks County DA's office.
Opednews held an extensive phone interview with Steve Hindi after he and his partner, Janet Enoch, returned from Pennsylvania to their home in Illinois.
A forthcoming article, based partially on this interview, explores inconsistencies between the police reports and the video, the handling by Warminster police of Hindi's property, a response by Carlton Pool owner, Joseph Solana, Jr., expansion of Pennsylvania's Castle Doctrine, and the compelling history between SHARK and Bucks County District Attorney David Heckler.
Note: Calls to Warminster police, the DA's office and Joseph Solana, Jr. were not returned at the time of this publication.
