Keep investigating Texas, maybe someone will jaywalk while you're watching.

Two and a half months, all that DNA, going through everyone's sock drawer and Texas still hasn't found anything. Never fear though, if there is one thing we have learned about Texas is they'll keep looking. The latest place they have looked is in Utah, by proxy, using Arizona to do their work for them. The Salt Lake Tribune.

"An Arizona investigator requested copies of birth certificates for approximately 25 FLDS couples from the YFZ Ranch - about 50 people in all - to confirm their dates of birth, according to Jeff Duncan, director of the Utah Office of Vital Records and Statistics."

Still can't find anything can you Texas? Texas did eventually settle on three female humans they said were underage at the time of the raid of YFZ, two as you know have given birth since then and were declared adults. That left one that COULD have been seen at the time of the raid that was pregnant at the time of the raid. The second warrant is based on seeing pregnant teenage girls. Repeat what we've learned on the Blog. "A pregnant Underage Girl is NOT prima facie evidence of a crime" is it class? Every day that passes by we are farther and farther away from the day that Texas raided YFZ. When this remaining girl does give birth, we will know how far along she was when the raid was conducted. If she goes another two weeks, she was 6 months pregnant. All I know now is the girl is probably the one that refused to take a pregnancy test, indicating that she wasn't showing much.

So Texas is operating on a bad warrant based on the idea that they could "see" something that they could not. Namely the age of the child's father, and the location of conception of the child. That's the other thing we've learned on the blog.

So Texas is now looking for birth certificate records to verify what they have had told to them in court, even though those records were eventually accepted and even though the FLDS has not yet been shown to have lied about the facts of the case.

"Tela Mange, a spokeswoman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, said the agency is 'working with a number of investigators,' but did not elaborate.

'Our investigation encompasses a wide range of information and I am unable to provide specifics on the types of information we are gathering,' she said in an e-mail.

Jerry Strickland, a spokesman for the Texas Attorney General's office, declined to comment on the ongoing investigation.

Good, you have nothing so "no comment" would be an appropriate response.

I'm glad to see that this whole incident has made the rest of the nation as sick as it has us. I'm sure that all the homeschoolers will be rounded up next.
