Re-reading the Craig Burton Interview

Coming up in a few days on Today In History, we'll see the police interview with Craig Burton.

One thing that's interesting is that the police seem surprised that no one from work visited Lisa when she was "recuperating" at Flag, and no one called Lisa's family. (p. 16)

As the police point out during the interview - all these people move together from Texas to Florida, they all work long hours together - and no one checks in with Lisa while she's away from work to see how she's doing?

Another thing that caught my eye is Craig volunteering the "if it's not written, it's not true" concept. This is something the police brought up to other Scientologists, often with less luck. In this case, though Craig volunteered it as explanation for writing the report he was asked to write about Lisa's unusual behavior at the trade show.

Finally, the police point out that they're missing two pages of Craig's reports (p. 34). Missing documents and missing pages are a recurring theme during the investigation, as hinted at by detective Carrasquillo (p. 24: "Well, Mr. Cacciatore, sometimes we do get copies, on subpoena requests, and sometimes we don't.")

I'm amazed at the number of pages and the number of complete documents that were never turned over to the police, and I would think that constitutes some kind of obstruction of justice.
