Police evidence specialist says Deedy smelled of alcohol

By Ken Kobayashi

POSTED:
LAST UPDATED: 08:01 p.m. HST, Jul 17, 2013


A police evidence specialist testified this morning that State Department special agent Christopher Deedy smelled of alcohol when she took his photos at Queen’s Medical Center about two hours after he shot Kollin Elderts at a Waikiki McDonald’s restaurant.

Toy Stech told the Circuit Court jury that she noticed a “strong alcohol smell” on Deedy’s breath and also a “sour smell” as if the alcohol was coming from his perspiration and pores.

Stech is another of the prosecution witnesses to say Deedy either smelled of alcohol or appeared to be drunk the early morning of Nov. 5, 2011 when Elderts was fatally shot at the McDonald’s Kuhio Avenue restaurant. However, Stech acknowledged that she did not file the report on her observations about Deedy until January, 2013.

Deedy, 29, of Arlington, Va., who was here to provide security for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation conference, is on trial on a charge of murdering Elderts, 23, a Kailua resident.

City prosecutors say Deedy was driven by inexperience and alcohol when he shot the unarmed man. The defense maintains Deedy fired in self defense to ward off the drunken Elderts who attacked him and grabbed for the agent’s gun.

Deedy drank some beer earlier, but was not drunk, the defense contends.

The shooting occurred at about 2:45 a.m. Stech took Deedy’s photos and processed him for gun shot residue at the medical center at about 4:40 a.m. to 5 a.m.

Stech’s photos and other evidence were shown to the jury this morning.

The photos included shots of Deedy. The evidence included Deedy’s shirt and shorts that were stained with Eldert’s blood.

Don't think so. There is a reason why attorneys like Hart are hired to represent defendants like Deedy and get well paid to do so. BOTH Elderts and Deedy contributed to the death of Elderts. Someone who wrote a letter to the editor tried to reference the 1931 Massie trial where Kahahawai was murdered by a group of Caucasian males who wanted revenge on a se xual assault that is questionable whether Kahahawai committed. If you review the history on this, Kahahawai made himself a target when in a prior automobile incident between a couple named Mr and Mrs Peeples and Kahahawai's friend Horace Ida, Kahahawai who was over 6 ft tall and a boxer, did not like Mrs Peeples arguing with Ida or a near miss between their cars, punched Mrs Peeples in the jaw which was later reported to the police. Point is Kahahawai, like Elderts did not deserve to die, but throughout both their lives they put themselves in situations, that eventually will get them in trouble beyond what they can control. Same thing with Zimmerman and Martin; in all of these situation it takes TWO sides, both sides with issues, to result in these kind of deaths.

E inverse, if Elderts was your `ohana how would you feel. Kahahawai was innocent in the Massie case and his olo s were removed while they drove the Malama coastline. Elderts took the hit. Some one else could have taken the hit from two wild shots. Deedy is lucky it was only Elderts. We are lucky it wasn't another one of us.

Well false then Hart would just say it was an unfortunate accident, ya can't ruin an upstanding man with an impeccable reputation over someone getting shot by accident , on the other hand if Eldertd had been a good little low-life local (sarcasm here) what some posters are preaching. Then this whole incident would not have happened. Forgett the facts that are being presented here. What are you going to believe? Your lying eyes or me? And what I am putting out to you.

One hope to prove he is lying about not being drunk is that someone called 911 during the situation. Adding sound to the silent videos. I would hope that the security guard who was on the phone was on the phone with the dispatcher. She looks to be a key witness who was sober.

Doesn't matter. Only one of the sides committed murder. It's not OK to participate in a fight and then pull a gun if you are losing.

People are just missing the point, Deedy was warned by a friend about the locals and he still carried his weapon while under the influence.

The victims died - unfortunately, and the shooters have HUGH attorney fees. No winners what so ever.

You keep repeating that same thing. The Prosecution really does not need to prove that he was drunk to get a Murder 2 conviction. They only need to prove that the assailant (Deedy) had malice aforethought prior to the killing. So far the witnesses have testified that Deedy repeatedly told Elderts he "was going to shoot him in the face". That is malice aforethought and if that testimony holds up that's all the Prosecution will need.....

This case is tragedy for all involved. Did not need to happen and yet it did probably because both parties had too much to drink. Had others there intervened more forcibly perhaps things could have been de-escalated until police could have responded. Wondering if those working at McDonalds called police once it became clear there was a problem when Elderts began harassing one of the patrons which caused Deedy to get involved. friend, Places like McDonald's and other fast type restaurants that stay open in the wee hours of the morning should be required to have a security presence as it tends to attract those who have been drinking more than they should and conflicts and fights are not uncommon. I remember when Zippy's on King St and possibly other locations had security guards because of such incidents.

There was a G4S Security Officer on duty at the time of the incident. Like the majority of unarmed security officers, they serve more as a deterrent more than anything else. Most law abiding citizens see the security officer and "feel" safer. Then you have the crumbs of society that taunt, harass and ridicule the security officer. Drunk punks out late at night usually fall into the "crumb" category. Depending on the "post orders", the security officer may be very limited in what s/he can do. In many cases, they are required by both the client (in this case McDonald's) as well as their employer to not intervene, but rather simply "observe and report", then render aid as necessary and call 911 if needed. Like anything, there is a "right" way and a "wrong" way of deescalating situations like the one that occurred in this case. Without proper training, the situation can often be escalated by individuals attempting to help out. Most times, it is best for bystanders to simply call 911 and become a "good witness". Tragic as it may be, bottom line is that both parties contributed to the death of Mr. Elderts. The question is who contributed more to the situation? There is still a lot of evidence that needs to be introduced and eventually evaluated by the judge and jury. The case is far from over, yet many are already forming opinions as to the outcome. Right, wrong, bad, or good, it is human nature for folks to do this. In the end, both Elderts and Deedy are "losers". The only "winners" would be the attorneys. Win or lose, the attorneys will get paid. :-(

Everyday they burn talking about Deedy's breath is another $200,000 of taxpayer money out the window. Huuuury up already.

Agent Deedy decided to ... what did he decide to do? The two persons involved were sitting at tables far enough apart. Was he going to, at 2:45 a.m. in McDonald's, take care of 200 years of racial tensions in Hawaii?

What gets me about this case from the get go misinformation by the victims attorney like Elderts and Deedy had an altercation before getting into McDonalds. And such. But the defense well that's a different story. They first claimed that Deedy was immune because he was in the capacity of a law enforcement officer and was protectecting a so called victim from harm, but in order to go there Deedy would have to testify on the stand, well the video does not show this.You can't go pick a fight (3) against 2 then loose said fight and shoot a person dead. Everything Deedy did was wrong, he's on trial not Elderts , Elderts is dead. Now does Elderts have anything to do with his demise of course Elderts actions was not all positive but if he believed that he and his friends life was in danger from some drunk azzclown with a gun, threatening to shoot his face, wel

Ldub20_Owl316 I've formed an opinion based on what the HPD our Prosecutors Office, the video, and testimony given so far shows: Deedy was the aggressor and interjected himself into something that he didn't need to, he (Deedy) started it by throwing the first blow (was the assailant), Elderts (was the victim of the assault) defended himself and Deedy drew his gun and killed Elderts. The Prosecutions version of events more closely resembles what the video shows and previous statements from the defense do not.

Like I said before, the Prosecutions version of events more closely matches the video. The lying defense attorney's version of events does not. IMO from viewing the video and the testimony so far, Deedy started the fight, he threw the first blow, and when Elderts was getting the better of him, he cowardly pulled his gun and shot an unarmed man.

According to the other story about the guy killed by HPD, the medical examiner thinks it's homicide when law enforcement strangles a guy they're grappling with. Accordingly to Deedy, it's ok to just shoot the guy dead. I wonder which one is correct? If Deedy is correct, all cops have to do is shoot anyone who resists arrest, and it's ok. In fact, according to Deedy's defense, I can even kick a guy until I get a reaction out of him, and then I can shoot him dead in self-defense. Because while it's wrong for the other guy to defend himself against my kicking with his fists, it's ok for me to defend myself against his fists with a gun. That's totally fair, right? Oh, and I can also wildly fire my gun in a McDonalds after I've been drinking, and it's ok. Wow, I learn something new every day.
