01:17guys come in and say you were searching
01:20for an assault I never said anything
01:22about myself
01:24I never mentioned to you anything just
01:27told you we're investigating something
01:28one another
01:33it's an interesting concept to think of
01:36how you might respond to what would
01:37normally be an easy question especially
01:40during a circumstance where it becomes a
01:42terrifying dilemma we ask that you
01:43contemplate this question while you put
01:45yourself in Georgia's position but not
01:47before you grasp the context of what
01:49brought him to this moment it begins
01:51with 22 year old Sports scholar Yardley
01:53love a star lacrosse player at the
01:55University of Virginia she is captured
01:58in this Photograph playing in the second
01:59to last game of the season clearly aware
02:01of the obstacles that lie in front of
02:03her yet continuing to move forward which
02:05is the circumstantial detail that turned
02:07this picture into a symbol for the
02:09globally recognized organization that
02:11would be founded in her memory this
02:13would be the last photograph taken that
02:14day capturing yardley's last Embrace
02:16with her head coach Julie Myers both
02:19were unaware this exact moment would
02:21soon be on the national front pages on
02:23May 3rd 2010 at roughly 2 15 am
02:26yardley's roommate returned from a night
02:28out to their off-campus apartment upon
02:30entering she saw that yardley's bedroom
02:32had been broken into at which point she
02:34rushed inside to find her unresponsive
02:36on the mattress she had blood coming out
02:38of her nose and severe bruising across
02:40the right side of her face but the most
02:42alarming thing was that she wasn't
02:44waking up her friend called 9-1-1 who
02:46instantly guided her through the steps
02:48of CPR which was then taken over by
02:50paramedics who arrived on the scene four
02:52minutes later but their attempts at
02:54Revival were unsuccessful and Yardley
02:56was pronounced dead at exactly 2 47 am
03:00at 2 53 that same morning criminal
03:03investigator Lisa Reeves woke up to a
03:05phone call from the sheriff's office by
03:072 59 she had arrived at yardley's
03:09apartment leading the investigation and
03:11by 350 confirmed that she had her first
03:13person of interest which was 22 year old
03:16George Hughley V yardley's ex-boyfriend
03:18and the next several hours were spent
03:20gathering information before she knocked
03:22at his front door she found out that
03:24George was a fifth generation heir to a
03:26very wealthy American Family whose Roots
03:28lay in Lumber dating back to the 1900s
03:31he was educated at Landon prep a
03:33prestigious all boys private school in
03:35Bethesda Maryland with annual tuition
03:37fees of up to fifty thousand dollars
03:39George was the star player of the
03:41lacrosse team and became an All-American
03:43athlete this led to a full scholarship
03:45at the University of Virginia where he
03:47remained a key player in the starting
03:48lineup and where he would also meet then
03:50spark a romance with fellow lacrosse
03:52player Yardley love they dated for
03:54almost two years euglian Love's
03:56relationship was an on-again off-again
03:58one where they cheated on each other
04:00through out and that tempers flared both
04:02ways what was going on with these two
04:04young people what may have led someone
04:06to do what happens these are just a
04:08completely unbelievable set of facts
04:10everybody watched
04:12doubled by it they were scared for her
04:14nobody knew what to do Yardley ended the
04:17relationship in 2010 just two weeks
04:19before graduation nine days later she
04:21was found dead in her bedroom and that
04:23same morning George Hughley would hear a
04:25knock at his front door
04:29he opened to detective Lisa Reeves who
04:31was dressed in civilian clothing she
04:33introduced herself as a police officer
04:35but mentioned nothing of the crime she
04:37simply stated that she was conducting an
04:38investigation that could benefit from
04:40his presence at the Sheriff's Office
04:41Georgia's response was to lethargically
04:43put on his flip-flops then walk over to
04:46the passenger side door of her unmarked
04:48police car and let himself in somewhat
04:50bewildered Lisa got in and drove them to
04:52the police station a few minutes away
04:54without talking it was around then when
04:56she noticed bruising on his knuckles and
04:58cuts on his forearm at which point
05:00George was no longer a person of
05:01interest he was the Prime Suspect
05:15I know I introduce myself to you at your
05:17house but my name is Lisa Reeves today's
05:20date is May the 3rd 2010 the current
05:25time is
05:287 52.
05:31what's that
05:33Hydraulics paper still right now all
05:36right your first name is George yes
05:37right away you'll come to notice that
05:40George is oblivious to the gravity of
05:41the situation and it would be very safe
05:43to assume that he at this moment is
05:45unaware that Yardley has died he seems
05:47to believe that he's in as much trouble
05:49as he would be sitting in a principal's
05:51office perhaps for getting in a fight at
05:52class or on the lacrosse field and the
05:54sooner he provides a sanitized version
05:56of the truth the sooner he'll get to go
05:58home this of course ties in perfectly
06:00with the interrogator's opening strategy
06:02which we've labeled warmth for the sake
06:04of this video she will downplay the
06:06severity of his situation to a
06:08considerable degree while maintaining a
06:10friendly temperament with a sympathetic
06:11undertone she needs the suspect to feel
06:13safe and secure for the time being as
06:16the less cautious he is the more
06:17information he's likely to give away
06:19then as soon as he locks himself into
06:21one particular storyline the pressure
06:23can commence which often leads to a
06:25suspect being Laden with panic and
06:26contradictions before we ask you any
06:28questions you must understand your
06:30rights yeah the right to remain solid
06:31anything you say can be used student
06:33Court you have the right to talk to a
06:34lawyer before questioning and have one
06:36present during questioning if you cannot
06:38afford a lawyer one will be provided for
06:39you and if you're willing to talk to us
06:42now you have the right stop talking
06:43anytime
06:44George has two options here option one
06:47is to remain silent then allow his
06:49father to get him the most expensive
06:50attorneys in the country he would then
06:52have years to examine the evidence
06:54evaluate the many options available and
06:56then construct the most self-preserving
06:58storyline with world-renowned experts in
07:00criminal defense before they present it
07:01to a jury unfortunately for George he
07:04takes option two but before he does
07:06re-watch the flawlessly reassuring
07:08manner in which he's given the final
07:09piece of the Miranda warning
07:12and if you're willing to talk to us now
07:14you got the right stop talking anytime
07:16got it yup awesome
07:18just need your thing for there that you
07:20understand your rights
07:22and are willing to talk to us and Tom
07:25now is 7 53.
07:31all right let's kind of start I'm going
07:33to kind of ask you some questions and
07:35like I said we'll explain things a
07:36little bit later
07:37um tell me about your day yesterday
07:40played golf with um
07:42parents is a
07:44a father-son
07:48could have been I went to dinner with my
07:51dad my two bodies and then uh went home
07:55went to the bar for like a little while
07:58um then I went over to talk to Yardley
08:01and
08:03he was Yardley
08:05he's already is by former
08:09former
08:10let's just holding about which I
08:12understand but George has now initiated
08:15the investigative subject matter himself
08:17it's the perfect opening scenario for
08:19the interrogator because she's given
08:21nothing away making it more likely for
08:23him to reveal details that will
08:24contradict the evidence when I went over
08:26to
08:28talk to Yardley I I like was a Yardley
08:32and she was like already like totally
08:36freaked out because of what
08:39she did this past like a few days ago
08:43and she we haven't talked since I was
08:44just gonna go talk to her
08:46Yardley slept with another lacrosse
08:48player from North Carolina the week
08:50before which is what he just referred to
08:53she's already like oh like freaking out
08:56like you know you can't get me to kill
08:58him and I was like I'm like just trying
09:01to talk to you the investigation team
09:03obviously had no way of knowing this and
09:05George has now confessed to the crime of
09:07second-degree trespass more importantly
09:09however he's just confessed to
09:11initiating the supposed confrontation he
09:13now can't say that he was somehow
09:15tricked or misled into that situation he
09:17knowingly stepped into it and the
09:18critical fact he can actually recognize
09:20and remember this will be used against
09:22him repeatedly in the future
09:24and like she like started being like
09:28like getting like all like you know like
09:31really like defensive
09:33she was already like on the defensive
09:36Edge and like I was like listen I'm not
09:39here like I'm just here to talk to you
09:41and she like got all like like sat up I
09:46got her beds against the wall like if it
09:48was in this corner she was like up
09:50against the wall and I was like like we
09:52were sitting there talking and like
09:56she started being like like you
09:58getting like all like aggressive
10:02after this and so I was like all right
10:04like chill out like and choke her a
10:06little bit so just to recount what
10:08George said over the last 47 seconds
10:10Yardley was Defensive while being in a
10:13defensive State she backed up against
10:14the wall she then became aggressive
10:16George's response to this supposed
10:18aggression was to initiate physical
10:20contact
10:21started being like like freaking out and
10:24I was like listen I'm not like here do
10:26anything I'm here to talk to you about
10:28everything that's ensued in the past
10:30week and
10:33and she was like and like sort of like
10:35being like no no like a hit in her head
10:38like like stop like like she's in the
10:41courthouse like stop like I was like
10:44normally like what the hell like we were
10:47just gonna talk so let's go back half a
10:49minute and dissect what actually just
10:51happened there
10:52and so I was like all right like chill
10:54out like and choke her a little bit he
10:57will now say the words and she started
10:59being like then simultaneously mimic a
11:01body colliding with the wall he will
11:03then stop himself mid-thought and subtly
11:05modify the detail
11:07she started being like like freaking out
11:09and I was like listen
11:11and she started being like like freaking
11:14out he goes from illustrating Yardley
11:17hitting the wall to as he States
11:18freaking out he seems to realize
11:21mid-sentence this isn't the best way to
11:23explain her injuries so he changes the
11:26detail to buy himself time and she
11:29started being like like freaking out and
11:31I was like listen I'm not like here to
11:33do anything I'm here to talk to you he
11:35carefully shifts the topic from Yardley
11:37to himself and keeps it there for eight
11:39seconds before attempting to re-explain
11:41what occurred in a more self-preserving
11:43manner
11:47no jury on the planet will believe that
11:50Yardley was voluntarily slamming her
11:52head against the wall with enough Force
11:54to cause fatal brain damage all George
11:56has done here is give away the fact that
11:58he knows Yardley has sustained some type
12:00of head injury and now lied on record
12:02about how it was inflicted
12:05we're just gonna talk
12:08it was not at all like a good
12:11conversation because
12:13that's like she was already like
12:15freaking out with just even seeing me
12:18just even seeing me there
12:21okay what happened next
12:25what happened and she just kept hitting
12:27her head against them
12:28the wall when she was sitting on bed and
12:30I was like I grabbed her and I like
12:31shook her I was like stop like we need
12:33to like unload it or I was like we need
12:35to like talk about this like I mean I
12:37was all in her arms and stuff but like I
12:40never struck her I never like hit or hit
12:43her like in the face or anything I was
12:45just like we need talking she was so
12:48like
12:49so like oh I don't know what's the word
12:53like you know it like
12:56flopping a fish out of the water like
12:58like so like all this and I was like
13:01listen like I'm not here to like fight
13:03with you or like do anything like here
13:06to talk to you and like and she's like
13:09no no like get away from me you have to
13:12leave until you you have to leave you
13:13have to leave you have to leave like all
13:15this stuff and I was like all right like
13:16fine like but like I want to talk to you
13:18after all this and and like I was I was
13:22like a little bit persistent because of
13:24the situation you know my former
13:27girlfriend who
13:29always coming out in last week you know
13:31and I was like all right like well
13:34so we're really talking over there and
13:39I mean I somehow we ended up somehow I
13:42was arresting her own floor and I was
13:44just saying stop I just like and I was
13:46holding her I was holding her I was a
13:49little bit persistent I was wrestling
13:51her on the floor all further evidence
13:53that designates George as the aggressor
13:54he's completely shut down his ability to
13:57argue any sort of self-defense claim and
13:59then the conversation I could tell was
14:01just like it was not going anywhere and
14:03nothing was happening and
14:06uh she would like went back to bed and I
14:09and I laughed
14:11when I went back home
14:15phase one is now complete the suspect
14:17has unknowingly locked himself into a
14:19storyline that will put him away for a
14:21very long time the risk of him shutting
14:23down or requesting a lawyer is no longer
14:25a primary concern so the interrogator
14:28will now increase the pressure she will
14:30confront him on certain elements that
14:31she pretended to overlook before and the
14:33ideal scenario is to cause just enough
14:35Panic so that he backpedals on previous
14:37statements and contradicts himself all
14:39right so you go over there knock on the
14:41door
14:43her front door is open her room door was
14:46closed I knocked like like
14:48are they like she heard me and opened
14:51the door and and went out all right when
14:54and where entire room all right straight
14:56to our bedroom
14:57yeah I mean how'd you get through the
14:59door
15:00her door the front door her door
15:07actually it might have been lost
15:09it was
15:12yeah yeah actually yeah yeah it was
15:17actually it was locked together because
15:19I think I put a hole Yeah you punched it
15:22all through the door pretty sure
15:23actually now yeah
15:26why'd you do that
15:29I guess yeah when I once I was in a room
15:35she was like very like you know like
15:37partly no I'm not like I don't want to
15:39talk to you like all the stuff and she
15:41was very like you know very on edge like
15:45I don't want to talk because
15:48you know
15:50I was like listen like you you what you
15:53pulled last week was outrageous like I
15:56just want to talk to you why'd you
15:57pushing to do with that
15:59a very unusual time to interrupt a
16:01suspect in such a contentious manner he
16:03was giving away self-incriminating
16:05information that could be used to
16:06establish a motive he was doing exactly
16:08what the lead investigator wanted but
16:10detective Ed has now stopped him in his
16:12tracks it's a reckless maneuver at this
16:14point in the interrogation which
16:16detective Reeves is no doubt conveying
16:18at this moment through nonverbal
16:19communication she now has to let the
16:21suspect respond as to not undermine
16:23their position
16:27because I won't talk to her
16:31detective Reeves will now bring his
16:33guard back down through a reassuring
16:34tone and gently guide his train of
16:36thought back to his grievances with the
16:38victim she pulls this off in three
16:40questions all right we'll continue on
16:42this one continue on so you're talking
16:44to her she doesn't want to talk to you
16:46not really I mean
16:48in park though like there's Parts where
16:50we were talking and then like you know

17:14like this is outrageous because I was
17:16trying to make everything better and and
17:19then like you know

17:25like how upset I was because I've told

17:57like you know like they try to like put
18:00everything that she did like wasn't
18:02important
18:04it kept going to the point where she

18:08we have to figure like out what's going
18:11on

19:17may have grabbed her a little bit by the
19:19neck when we were like
19:21but I never like strangled her okay
19:25um but I yeah I mean
19:28during the whole like commotion you know
19:30like
19:31I we may have I may have grabbed her
19:34neck but I never was like strangling her
19:37more detail that was unknown to the
19:39investigation the fact that he grabbed
19:41her neck can now be used as evidence it
19:43paints a more frightening picture of the
19:45incident with relation to the suspect's
19:46aggression toward the victim this was an
19:48extremely damaging Revelation for
19:50George's defense the discussion moves to
19:52the moment he left and George admits
19:54that he took yardley's laptop why'd you
19:56grab your laptop because I was so pissed
19:59that she wouldn't talk to me I was like
20:02I don't know I like took it almost as a
20:05collateral I guess I don't know it's not
20:09reasonable logic but right
20:12okay I don't know did you take anything
20:14else besides your laptop nothing oh
20:19okay so when uh when you left out of
20:21there I mean you saw that she was
20:23bleeding on her nose she's now about to
20:25ask a question with the same implication
20:27for a second time notice what occurred
20:29the first time did you go back and check
20:31on her at any time
20:34any point did you try
20:36cookies already no I did not why
20:42the face of bewilderment if there ever
20:44was one it's very strange that he's so
20:46taken aback by such a question
20:48especially when you take into account
20:50the possible outcome if he had actually
20:52called for help one medical expert
20:54revealed in the courtroom for the very
20:56first time that following Yardley loves
20:58brutal beating had George Hughley or
21:01anyone else called for help she might
21:03have survived
21:05I didn't think it was like
21:08in I didn't think that she was like in
21:12need of like going to the emergency room
21:14I we should just kind of I made it up
21:16what do you think that I don't know I
21:18mean I I think did you say when you were
21:20and correct me if I'm wrong when you
21:22were shaking her her head was hitting
21:23the wall
21:25well that was in the beginning that was
21:27initially when I walked in like she was
21:29like up in the core like just like get
21:31like get out of here like you know like
21:32this but at any time when you were
21:35shaking her did her head bang the wall
21:38put yourself in George's position and
21:41imagine Yardley had in fact
21:42self-inflicted her injuries you would
21:44perhaps say something along the lines of
21:46absolutely not I wasn't hitting her
21:49against the wall but like when she's
21:51like sitting there in the corner of like
21:54if it really early like this and I'm
21:56like orally like you know and I I was
21:58like like what the [ __ ] was that about
22:01like that did such [ __ ] that you
22:03like do that like it's such a like
22:05[ __ ] move like would like you know
22:08like everyone like what are you like
22:10doing like like that like
22:13she has a pretty good knot on her head
22:15that's why I'm asking how that how you
22:18can explain how that would have happened
22:19I mean
22:22I don't even know when that a nod
22:24[Music]
22:25like on the side of her head she's been
22:27hit pretty good right there so I'm just
22:28trying to figure out did you hit her
22:29with something no I never never touched
22:33her struck her or anything well you
22:36touched her you had your hands you know
22:37yeah no and I said never struck her okay
22:39so you you I'm gonna go through this one
22:42more time make sure we're on the same
22:43page so you're you're pretty pissed at
22:44her from a week ago first then use text
22:47messages do you have those text messages
22:48or she says she
22:50as you put it [ __ ] somebody
22:53I actually might have those you know all
22:55right you got your phone with you yeah
22:57okay let's let's pull it out let's see
22:59if we can see that the next moment is
23:01fascinating because it symbolizes how
23:03drastically George's life is about to
23:04change the interrogator will invade his
23:06personal space to make sure he's not
23:08deleting anything from his phone soon
23:10after that she will take the phone out
23:12of his hand and place it on the table
23:13actions that would be completely
23:15unacceptable in almost any other
23:16circumstance
23:19all right
23:32like an ongoing conversation ongoing
23:35like it's a message and it's gone
23:38okay
23:41all right let's talk about how you you
23:44answered entered yeah yeah I mean
23:49because to put your to have put your
23:51fist through the door yeah
23:55because that's why I like this
23:59yeah you're right yeah
24:02how did you get all the bruising on your
24:03hand then this is all from the cross
24:05this is all
24:07that's pretty fresh right there looks
24:09this is all from my lacrosse game on
24:12Saturday
24:13or but you can see where my arm pads are
24:15right here my gloves right here and even
24:18right there I thought you you wore those
24:20padded gloves this is awesome this is
24:23all the difference this is all from the
24:25cross
24:27and that's I got wax here I remember 100
24:30got whacked during the game when I was
24:33trying to end like kill the clock when
24:36when you had her in your Shaker did she
24:37scratch you anywhere
24:39no no no she's a little girl she's tiny
24:43yeah she's not I know she can she can
24:45try to get you or anything like that no
24:49okay so you you kick in the door yeah
24:53that's how I got you yeah okay and then
24:56I stuck my hand through and unlocked and
24:58and went in there and
25:02okay everything else is weird the
25:05detectives leave the room for roughly
25:07three minutes when they return it
25:09appears Ed is given the chance to lead
25:10with a few of his own questions I know
25:12we touched about what uh what happened
25:14last night but set it up for me leave it
25:18up to me a little bit here why did you
25:19guys break up exactly why
25:22wallet yeah well we are not we are not
25:26from the same area right and I'm going
25:30or she wants me to New York and
25:34I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing yet
25:36but I'd like to move to San Francisco
25:37why'd you take her computer
25:40I don't know I have no idea there's
25:42maybe maybe because there's evidence on
25:44the computer emails that you sent no
25:45there's no I mean you you can find you
25:47can read all the emails and everything
25:49back and forth detective Ed now asks
25:52George if he held Yardley down on the
25:53bed he's trying to subtly set the
25:55grounds for an argument of smothering
25:57which isn't a terrible idea but would be
25:59disproven by the autopsy regardless no
26:01no did you fall down on top of her you
26:03know wrestling real wrestling on the
26:05ground for like a little y'all wrestle
26:06in the bed at all no I never really no
26:09no like we had a chauffeur no I mean
26:13like just kind of hold her down until
26:14she calmed down on bed no if anything
26:16though I mean I mean and if anything
26:18that would have been like on the floor
26:20when we were on the floor when her nose
26:23started bleeding like rusting around and
26:26that's what we're gonna do is started
26:27bleeding so pretty noisy when you all
26:28are wrestling around no I mean he's
26:30screaming
26:32no no no no
26:34she wasn't asking me actually if I'm
26:38cracking my head in the wall I'm going
26:39to be saying oh yeah yeah
26:41no I mean she was not screaming yes it
26:46should have been probably I mean maybe
26:48yes he should have been probably I mean
26:52maybe I don't know why do you think she
26:53should I don't know I mean well she was
26:55screaming when I first like came into
26:58the room she was like no like I'm not
27:00talking to you I did the full daddy or
27:01all that but like
27:05at any point before you said you and
27:08this was your word you said you tossed
27:10her on the bed and then you left yeah
27:12all right at any point before that did
27:15she lose consciousness
27:17no
27:19okay what happened after you tell us
27:21around the bed did she move she 'll talk
27:23about say something
27:26I mean I literally it's also like I
27:28didn't turn around and tell us around
27:30the ground
27:31I walked out the door okay so when you
27:34tossed her back on the bed in in your
27:36mind she's
27:37she's bleeding but you said she was
27:39bleeding out her nose and you didn't you
27:41didn't feel like you needed to call
27:42rescue no after that after banging her
27:45head and
27:47shaping her blood coming out her nose on
27:49the floor
27:51you know
27:52there's nothing about like you missed
27:55anything that no one asked him right now
27:56there's nothing about like going going
27:59to get anything or going you know I
28:02don't know I took a computer George
28:04Rambles about why there was no reason
28:06for taking the laptop for another 20
28:08seconds during which time detective
28:10Reeves decides that enough information
28:12has been attained phase two is now
28:14complete and the fate of Yardley is
28:16about to be revealed these moments and
28:18interrogations are considered important
28:20for the purpose of gauging a suspect's
28:22response it's believed that a sharp and
28:24sudden Revelation can make it difficult
28:26to fabricate emotion So in theory this
28:28will cause a suspect to provide either a
28:31genuine response or a relatively obvious
28:33disingenuous response which often comes
28:35in the pretense of shock or remorse I
28:38mean I guess that's where my logic was
28:40out which is
28:43well I have to taste I think I know why
28:45you took the computer
28:46in the midst of what would have been a
28:48flawlessly executed moment detective Ed
28:50jumps back into the laptop mystery the
28:52suspect has essentially confessed to
28:54murder this really wasn't the time for
28:55regurgitated conjecture over a petty
28:57theft misdemeanor which Ed was clearly
28:59being advised of once again through
29:01non-verbal communication
29:07she's dead
29:11George
29:16the guilder
29:19she's dead
29:21I think you knew that already no I did
29:23not
29:25in our opinion George is being truthful
29:27here and we believe the interrogator
29:29feels the same way in this moment
29:35she's dead
29:38how the [ __ ] is she dead because you
29:40killed her George how the [ __ ] is she
29:42died because you killed her George
29:44appears to be going through a delayed
29:45response it's so foreign a revelation
29:48that it's yet to sink in once the shock
29:50settles he refuses to accept it and this
29:52denial appears to be a momentary coping
29:54mechanism before the reality of the
29:56situation truly hits him which will
29:58happen at this time in the footage
30:01foreign
30:26you went in there to talk with her but I
30:28got out of control right George the
30:30detectives will now add further pressure
30:32to keep him talking suspects will often
30:34divulge information in these moments in
30:36the panicked attempt to save themselves
30:38and in doing so can shut down a more
30:40credible storyline they haven't thought
30:41up yet the alcohol gonna hold you
30:44kicked in her door she started to fight
30:47with you you punched her in the head and
30:48you're crazy you cracked your head you
30:51cracked your head in the window or in
30:52the wall she is she's not I ain't BS and
30:55you right now I'm serious I want to see
30:57I want to see her George Michael George
31:00she is dead you were not here to dance
31:02with us you're here because she's dead
31:06the alcohol I don't believe it I don't
31:08believe that's true dude I didn't I
31:09didn't I didn't I did it I don't believe
31:12that she's dead how did you I don't
31:14believe that she's deaf I don't believe
31:15that did you punch her did you hear her

31:19not dead I didn't I never did anything I

34:18have to collect some stuff from you like
34:19what's called a buckle swab okay
34:30why didn't you guys say why did you guys
34:33come in and say you were searching for
34:35an assault I never said anything about
34:37myself
34:39I never mentioned to you anything just
34:42told her we're investigating someone
34:43another investigating so you might be
34:45calling anybody for your door
34:48at the start of this video you were
34:50asked to think of what you would do in
34:52this situation really try and imagine
34:54what would be going through your mind in
34:55this moment as you might just gain a
34:57restorative Outlook from both knowing
34:59the answer while not having to answer
35:00this particular question but there is of
35:03course no possible way you will gain
35:04anything close to the Newfound
35:06perspective George has acquired In This
35:07Moment which unfortunately for him is no
35:10longer of use
35:18to call
35:21um
35:25I don't know about that
35:28what's your mom's name
35:30oh my God what's her number 301 96. how
35:37did you want me to call your dad or just
35:40her she will talk you can tell
35:43everything okay how
35:46foreign
36:00[Music]
36:24these next few moments are a turning
36:26point the leg iron seem to initiate a
36:28shift in his Constitution and his denial
36:30will completely cease from this point
36:31forward he will continue to ask why and
36:34how but he will no longer reject the
36:36severity of what is happening
36:53huh
36:58[Music]
36:59heck of a day but
37:01let's have more
37:10I am here the rest of my life I'm sorry
37:13it's been lying here the rest of my life
37:15in this room no in jail
37:17I don't know
37:21not a bad guy man never said you're
37:24working
37:28out I'm sorry you call my mom
37:33yeah you do want to talk to her that's
37:35when you need your family the most but
38:05George was taken to the Regional Jail
38:08soon after this moment he would go on to
38:10plead not guilty to murder and was held
38:12without bond for almost two years
38:13awaiting trial it began on February 6
38:162012. well testimony is now underway in
38:19the murder trial of the former UVA
38:21lacrosse player accused of killing his
38:23ex-girlfriend for the first time we have
38:25video of hugely as he was led into the
38:27courtroom contrary to his appearance in
38:29the days that followed his arrest for
38:31the murder of 22-year-old Yardley love
38:33he appeared pale frail and gaunt the
38:36prosecution presented a case that
38:37Huguley went to Love's apartment that
38:39night busted through her bedroom door
38:41and in some way struck her causing blunt
38:43force trauma which led to her death
38:45we've also learned that on that night
38:47George Hughley was exchanging what were
38:49described as playful text messages with
38:51three other women those messages
38:53continued late into the night and even
38:55after the alleged attack throughout the
38:58trial hugely has sat expressionless
39:00almost stoic at the defense table all of
39:03that changed today as this police
39:04interview was airing Hughley began
39:07crying was often pinching the bridge of
39:09his nose with his hands and looking down
39:11as he listened to the sound of his own
39:13hysterical voice I did not kill her I
39:16did not kill her I did not I did not in
39:18court Tuesday hughley's defense faced an
39:20uphill climb the most riveting testimony
39:23came from former UNC lacrosse player
39:25Michael Burns who testified that one
39:27time while visiting UVA he heard some
39:29yelling for help from hugley's apartment
39:31when he opened the door he said he found
39:33Huguley with his arm wrapped around
39:35Love's neck choking her hugely then let
39:37her go and she ran out of the room
39:39crying a variety of medical experts took
39:42the stand this Wednesday and they all
39:43seemed to agree that Love's death was
39:45the result of blunt force trauma to the
39:46Head this was followed by highly
39:48distressing witness testimony from
39:50yardley's Neighbors the noise was so
39:52loud this was such a violent death that
39:54they heard it downstairs two separate
39:55Witnesses and it sounded like a stereo
39:57crowd crashing to the ground and it
39:59certainly didn't help that the jury knew
40:01that she was alive for two hours before
40:03she died indicating that if George
40:05Hughley had come to his senses he could
40:07have gone back there called 9-1-1 and
40:09possibly saved her life still the
40:11driving argument for the defense is that
40:13George Hughley never intended to kill
40:16they say this was all a tragic accident
40:18that he does not deserve a life sentence
40:20but instead a lesser charge and a second
40:23chance guilty of second-degree murder
40:25and you will hear the sentence
40:27momentarily a 26-year prison term came
40:30down George Hughley was brought to court
40:32to hear his lawyers plead for the judge
40:34to cut in half the 26-year sentence
40:37recommended by the jury judge Edward
40:39hogshire did trim it back but by just
40:41three years the jury in this case
40:43recommended 26 years the judge changed
40:45it to 23 probably a small difference but
40:48but why would he do that it's surprising
40:50isn't it considering this is a woman who
40:52was beaten to death in her own bed we
40:54think that George was convicted of a
40:57crime inconsistent with the facts and he
40:59received a penalty inconsistent with
41:01what the evidence would require
41:04there are no winners
41:06in this case with credit for the time
41:08that George Hughley has already served
41:10in jail and if he gets time off for good
41:12behavior he could be out in 18 years and
41:15the family for Yardley love has put out
41:17this statement saying we find no joy in
41:20other sorrow we are relieved to put this
41:22chapter behind us
41:25as for George he was incarcerated at the
41:28maximum security Augusta Correctional
41:30Center for 10 years and has since been
41:32transferred to a prison Work Camp in
41:34Richmond where he's expected to serve
41:36out the rest of his sentence the present
41:37consensus in the media is that George
41:39had no intention of killing Yardley but
41:41that his 23-year sentence is still
41:43appropriate if not lenient and that him
41:45being drunk to any degree at the time of
