Lieutenant Steve Cappas & Deputy Zach Ward were deposed in the Rogers vs. Morgan civil case. Under oath, both ECSO employees contend evidence was not properly stored in a secured location and reports were missing from case file.
Zach Ward, the first of the two to be deposed, says that chain of evidence was in tact up until the reports he created on the composition of Leah Manning’s devices in this sexual abuse case. In review of the case file, it becomes obvious the reports Ward claim to have run on the evidence he received in 2015 were not in the case file but a second examination of the phone of Leah Manning had been inexplicably run over a year later and was in the file where his report should have been.
