Cal­gary jury hears how high-tech used to track sus­pect in homi­cides

The Western Star - - CANADA -

CAL­GARY — A jury in a Cal­gary mur­der trial has heard how cell­phone calls from a man charged in the deaths of a woman and her young daugh­ter led to the dis­cov­ery of one of the al­leged vic­tims. Ed­ward Downey is charged with first-de­gree mur­der in the July 2016 deaths of Sara Bail­lie and her five-year-old child, Taliyah Mars­man, and has pleaded not guilty to both counts.

Jurors heard Wed­nes­day that Downey and a woman ex­changed a num­ber of texts and pho­tos for about three days be­fore his ar­rest, and that in­for­ma­tion from those calls was later passed to po­lice.

Pa­tri­cia Pace, who spe­cial­izes in cell­phone anal­y­sis for Cal­gary po­lice, tes­ti­fied that she ex­am­ined the call records for the num­ber con­nected to the phone Downey had at the time of his ar­rest.
