Bravo Trial Day 5: Bravo's Handwriting Confirmed
GAINESVILLE - We are following day 5 of the Pedro Bravo murder trial. Bravo is accused of killing UF student Christian Aguilar two years ago. We want to warn you, some of these images may be graphic.
Bravo kept sketchbooks and journals in his apartment and wrote letters in jail. The prosecution took a look at handwriting samples. Most of it was confirmed to be that of Bravo's.
A forensic document examiner looked into Bravos handwriting. He was able to detect that Bravo has four distinct writing styles.
Thomas Vastrick a forensic document examiner, analyzed letters, love poems and notes directed towards Erika friman.
Bravo was asked to provide writing samples. "A selection of all the letters of the alphabet, upper and lower case. And also several common letter combinations as S T and T H," Vastrick said.
With the exception of one written name and email belonging to one Nicholas Hoyos, whose relationship is unclear. Vastrick confirms that all journals and letters are Bravo's handwriting.
