No springer -- legal analyst and neighbors and won't start out the two boys now going to be interviewed what can -- authorities learned from. But -- they're gonna be interviewed on by the authorities which is significant this -- been a big source of contention now for weeks that they were in house. At the time with a gap and it but they were still in the -- So. Whatever happens be it an intruder or something in the house they're relevant witnesses -- -- -- really careful. When question in case you gotta be a treat them as children. You have to be very careful in the way you can call the testimony can't really be used against parents -- well though it could I mean it could. -- it just depends on exactly you know what's said but yet could be so meanwhile you've got this this real clash between the family and the police to -- -- told me yesterday.

A baby yet we have to believe that the police have -- this when it happened and now it one of the witnesses saying that says if the person who they think could be that person some of the other witnesses saying that couldn't have been a person I saw so now you're seeing inconsistencies. In the accounts of the eyewitnesses who saw it at what what's what we thought was a similar appearance a lot of focus inside that house -- -- Dan Abrams thanks very much.
