Back in the last part of 2011 RMRI, LLC. was called upon to review a case in Camdenton, MO. The case involved a young man who had three illegal files on his computer. The state of Missouri Family Services Division has what is known as a “Stat Team”; this is the team of Investigators that conduct technical investigations for the Division of Family Services.

If the “Stat Team” finds illegal content on the computer that the Investigator is examining the Investigator that did the examination can refer this case for prosecution. [Read more…]
Every now and then RMRI, Inc. likes to give a fellow Private Investigator a “plug” when we have had an opportunity to work with one that impresses us.

I’d call this a heck of a win for Jose Baez and a humiliating loss for the prosecution.
Consider that Jose Baez was the “underdog” with no “death penalty case” experience prior to this case.
