I found the last picture I have before he died. It's not a great picture of him though - he is behind us kids. Probably taken the summer before he died.

Acting or not, I am stuck on the comments about Cody buying the drugs but never seen using them. Why buy if you're not going to use them as they aren't cheap. So was he working up to a point of trust with these girls? Like Svekla?
He calls his friends to make sure they aren't at his place so he is free to enter his apartment and no one will see his clothing that has blood on them ... and seems to save the clothes for his next trophy ... since police found DNA of all the girls on his summer wear he was caught in ... in the winter. Difficult to humanize a person like him but Ms. Cunningham tried. I find it all so utterly repulsive and disgusting and stomach turning.

If there was a bad business deal previously, Garland may have panicked realizing that Liknes was leaving town and he would never have a chance to extort money from him again.  He probably had a plan to get money from him somehow that day.  Not sure it was a revenge plan.

Hard to believe a psycho can have a softer side.  Split personality?  Bipolar?  It's not impossible to keep your secrets from others.  Many people make a living from it.  It's called " acting ".

Thank you Alder. It seems apparent to me that witnesses who have known Cody are afraid to talk the truth and are changing their testimonies. Ms. Cunningham actually humanizes him.

Woman testifies she had relationship with Legebokoff

Mark NIELSEN / Prince George Citizen - July 15, 2014

A former Prince George woman not only had a relationship with Cody Alan Legebokoff but was a friend of one of his alleged murder victims, the court heard Monday.

Nakheita Cunningham said she knew Natasha Lynn Montgomery from growing up in Quesnel where their mothers played on the same softball team.

After she broke her back in a car accident, Cunningham moved from Williams Lake to Prince George to live with her mother sometime in 2009 and stayed in this city until November 2010. By that time her mother had moved to Edmonton and Cunningham followed her there.

In Prince George, Cunningham and Montgomery first ran into each other at a house in the VLA where they were doing crack cocaine and crystal methamphetamine and remained familiar with each other because they were both prostitutes working on Queensway, the court heard.

Cunningham said she first met Legebokoff one day while at a friend's barbecue at a house on Carney Street. It just so happened a barbecue was also being held in a house across the street where Legebokoff was living. The parties came together and they exchanged phone numbers.

Legebokoff later called her up to buy psychedelic mushrooms but Cunningham said it was really just a ploy to get her over to the house and they started hanging out with each other.

"It started becoming more like a relationship," Cunningham said.

Legebokoff did buy drugs off her a second time but Cunningham said she never saw him use them. By that time, she said Legebokoff made her feel comfortable and things progressed from there.

"We'd go for drives and we'd just lay there and relax and he would hold me," Cunningham said.

However, she already had a boyfriend, although he could be abusive. In those situations, she would call Legebokoff to come get her or call the police.

They would also go four-by-fouring in Legebokoff's pickup truck. A favourite spot was LC Gunn Park where they would make their own trails. With the help of an aerial photograph of the area where the body of Cynthia France Maas, 35, was found in October 2010, Cunningham gave a vivid description of the routes she and Legebokoff would take.

Cunningham told the court she brought Montgomery over to Legebokoff's house during a summer afternoon but the three decided to leave because the three girls living upstairs were not into the same level of drugs they were doing.

Legebokoff took them in his truck out to a spot just east of Prince George Correctional Centre where he and Cunningham liked to go so she could let her pet dog run. They drove down a hill, took a right and stopped at an "old mill" before the train tracks.

They pulled down the tailgate and while Cunningham and Montgomery respectively consumed crack cocaine and crystal methamphetamine, Legebokoff had a few drinks.

Cunningham said she remembered it was summer because it was hot out and Montgomery had shaved her head.

When they ran out of drugs, they drove back into town where Montgomery was dropped off at a drug house on Quince Street and Cunningham was dropped off at a nearby convenience store.

Under cross examination, defence lawyer Jim Heller noted inconsistencies in her testimony when a statement she gave police in June 2013, notably that the trio's get together east of PGRCC occurred shortly before Montgomery, whose body has never been found, went missing in September 2010 and not before.

Cunningham replied she had been away from the city for some time and memories of what actually happened came back when she returned to Prince George and said her testimony adhered to a second statement she gave to police on Sunday.

"It was hard for me to take the parts and put things together," Cunningham said.

Cunningham said the last time she saw Montgomery was shortly after her release from PGRCC and agreed with Heller she saw her get into the pickup truck of someone she thought was threatening and dangerous.

In an apparent confusion over names, Cunningham first told police the man's name was Cody but gave another name to the court on Monday.

The trial has continued with much information presented about the victims... all vulnerable young women... with sad stories.  Sounds like Legebokoff deliberately chose his targets.  Here, I'll just post those articles that shed more light on Legebokoff's behavior.

Crown linking party to Maas death

Mark NIELSEN / Prince George Citizen - July 16, 2014

A drug-filled night with Cody Alan Legebokoff was described to the jury Wednesday as the trial for the man accused of murdering three women and a teenage girl continued at the Prince George courthouse.

Rylan Stanyer and Matt Mathews both testified they traveled from Burns Lake to attend a party in Prince George where they met up with Legebokoff, who Stanyer knew from playing hockey against him but had not seen in three years.

They soon found themselves outside the home snorting lines of cocaine at Legebokoff's truck and, after twice purchasing powder cocaine, they bought some crack cocaine and moved on to Legebokoff's apartment.

It was about 2 or 3 a.m. when they smoked the crack after which they sat around and talked and played video games, court heard.

At about the time the sun came up, Legebokoff left the apartment.

"He said he was going to get a piece of tail from an older lady," Stanyer said.

Neither saw Legebokoff return to the apartment by the time they left in the early afternoon, driving back to Burns Lake although Mathews answered one text from Legebokoff asking where they were.

Neither Stanyer nor Mathews were clear on the exact date when the party occurred. Stanyer said sometime in August 2009 or 2010 and Mathews said September but could not give a year.

Crown prosecution is alleging the party occurred on Sept. 10, 2010 and are linking the event to the death of Cynthia Frances Maas, 35, whose decomposed body was found in L.C. Gunn Park on Oct. 9, 2010.

Looking, yes you are right about the big hole, theory. A tractor could do the trick. That is why I suggested forensics check the buckets on the tractors, and tines on the tillers.

I was thinking about how my friend who has a pressure and well system on her farm. There is two holes, which look like well holes. Side by side, in the same building. She said to me, a person could easily fall down either hole, and get hurt badly, or die. I wonder if someone has a building that is covering their water system for their farm, near the Garland's farm??? Or one on the Garland's farm.

It would take a really big hole to hide 3 bodies.  That's a lot of digging.  By hand it would take a long time and be a lot of work.  Machinery would be easier.  Maybe they are down an old well or something of that sort.
