Now that some of the confession footage has been released, what do you all think about how Detective Curico handled the interrogation?
It's clear the detective didn't believe much of anything Cruz said regarding the "Demon voice". From the very start he seemed to convey with his tone, and just the things he said that Cruz was pretty much faking that he couldn't remember things, lying about the "voice" telling him to do bad things, pretending like he was distressed, etc. He actually said as much during the vid.
Curico came off as a hard ass. But that is his job to try to weed through the bullshit to get the truth. In my opinion he tried several times to get Cruz to slip up, or admit certain things. Again this is part of his job.
Do any of you think the way he went about the questioning is helpful to Cruz's case, as in he was tormenting a mentally challenged person, OR could the way the questioning went accompanied by Nik's answers possibly hurt the defense at trial?
