On Tuesday, I was glued to the Marine Press Conference as they shared an extensive breakdown of Maria and Cesar. I was setback a bit as I listened to the details of the sexual assault charges, the consensual and non consensual sexual contact and thought, "oh my goodness, there is something wrong here."
As of the other day, the general public was aware of one sexual assault charge against Cesar somewhere in April 2007; now known as April 11, 2007. But then another sexual assault incident on March 26, 2007 comes to light. And then another sexual incident in May 2007 came forward.
The military issued a Military Protection Order to keep Cesar away from Maria, and based on reports they were on opposite sides of the base. All the MPO were consistently renewed except for the last one which expired on December 23, 2007 and was quickly renewed on December 24, 2007 until January 7, 2007.
It is obvious that even though there was a MPO, Cesar and a possible accomplice were able to get a hold of Maria, or did Maria meet up with Cesar?
May 2007, Maria reported another sexual assault charge against Cesar but this charge was later dropped by Maria when she found out her conception of her pregnancy was on or about May 14, 2007.
On June 27, 2007, Maria became ill and went to the base doctor. A pregnancy test was done and the positive result of a pregnancy was determined. Based on size of the uterus, last menstrual cycle, etc. the doctor indicated around May 14, 2007 the time of conception. That would mean an approximate February 14, 2008 birth.
There were no reports of the last OB/GYN examine on November 26, 2007 indicated as a possible new delivery date or an official determination of how far Maria is in her pregnancy.
Reports back from December 19th of when Maria went missing was that she was 8 1/2 months pregnant. If this is true, then it would be possible conception back to March 26, 2007 or April 11, 2007.
Military reports indicate a denial of sexual attack, or one was an sexual attack and one wasn't a sexual attack.
Based on all the reports and time-lines between Cesar and Maria, it appears each of them followed the rules of the military to the letter.
Maria asked for permission to move to off base housing on September 17, 2007. According to the military this was requested and appropriate based on the fact that Maria would be having her child soon after the New Year.
Maria officially moved into off-base housing on November 5, 2007 with Sergeant Daniel Durham. Durham was soon to leave the end of December to go to training for deployment to Iraq or Afghanistan.
I don't want to speak rudely of Maria as she has been killed along with her child and no matter what occured to cause the pregnancy is no reason to cause Maria's demise.
But I can't help thinking if there was some game playing here, some lies, and taunting.
Women, not all women, plays games with men to try and keep them and one of the ways women do this is by saying they are pregnant. Some women will make false allegations against a man just to get even with them.
All you have to do is watch the Court TV shows to see what people do to one another in a relationship. I could share first hand stories myself of what I have seen and the pressure, stress and frustration of what a scorned or scared women could do to a man in an instant!
What happened to push Cesar so far over the edge that he didn't even think straight the day he murdered Maria and the unborn child.
Was Maria's mother really telling the public the truth about Maria being a pathological liar? Even though I was disgusted to hear this on national TV, it has me thinking that it may be more possible than not.
It saddens me to even write these thoughts and no one would have even known about Maria's life within the military and Maria's denials, charges and denials until she went missing. I am sure Maria didn't want the last year of her life spread over the news.
In the end, even if Maria did play head games with Cesar, this is not reason enough to murder Maria and her unborn child.
