In a follow up search warrant, the call detail records for the prepaid phones were requested and the information was analyzed using CellHawk. CellHawk generated reports and maps that revealed communication between the phones during the short time they were active, which was around the time of the murder. Jurors were shown maps created by CellHawk in the trials that depicted Rodgers’ phone travelling between Missouri and Florida in the days before and in the days after the crime. Both Rodgers’ phone and Teresa Sievers phone registered on the same cell tower several times during the time investigators say the murder occurred.
A witness in the trials referenced her ongoing education in the field of cellular technology to establish her credibility to testify to the specific cellular analysis in this case. Hawk Analytics, Inc., the creator of CellHawk, offers several avenues for continuing education in the field of cellular technology, HawkTalk, a live and on-demand monthly webinar series, is designed to address the emerging trends in cellular technology to help the community stay informed.
