#LisaIrwin : Michael Tabman On The Search Warrant - Cadaver And Disturbed Earth !

The affidavit submitted to obtain a search warrant of the Irwin residence highlighted important information. I found the following two facts to be the most compelling:
- A cadaver dog “indicated a positive ‘hit’ for the scent of a deceased human…”
- “…dirt having an appearance of being recently disturbed or overturned.”

These two statements, while not conclusive, lead a reasonable person to believe, when considering all the facts in toto, that there was probable cause to believe a body may be found.
