Mel Gibson:

Can You Hear Me Now?

8/11/2010 9:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... L.A. County Sheriff's investigators are waiting on Verizon, AT&T and other carriers to supply them with the last bit of evidence before turning the case over to the D.A.

Mel Gibson Investigation
As we have previously reported ... text messages and emails between Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva play a part in piecing together what happened on January 6, during the now-famous blowout.  Although lawyers for both sides have anted up the texts and emails, Sheriff's investigators want to turn over the official records -- under the law, only official records from the carriers are admissible in evidence -- it's called the "best evidence" rule.

We're also told investigators may conduct several other interviews before turning the case over to the L.A. County D.A.'s Office -- possibly the week from next.

One more thing ...  We've learned the domestic violence investigation is being handled separately from the extortion investigation -- the latter is being investigated by the Major Crimes Bureau of the Sheriff's Department.  The goal, we're told, is for both investigations to be submitted to the D.A. at the same time.

@Ann - I understand what you are saying to some degree and agree with you -- but I also have to agree with Curious.

Oksana or someone from her camp tried to float the theory that her child released those tapes to Radaronline and we laughed her off the boards. Hopefully, that spared her son any more humiliation than he has already suffered. You are correct, she is too stupid for words and she is only hanging herself. I've seen many former Oksana supporters change their minds after reading these message boards because her stories change and become more and more fantastical by the day.

We all care about the Gibson and his family and we all pray and hope that he will be proven innocent in a court of law - and Oksana will be revealed for who and what she is. Personally I have great faith that will happen.

Why does Mel Gibson´s face look like a Halloween Gorilla mask that´s been shaved clean? He sure ain´t the sexiest man alive any more.

If Mr. Gibson's appearance has been affected it is because he has spent the last three years of his life with a latex harpy and a sociopath. It will take a toll on a person. Why he spent those years with a woman that has more plastic inside of her than a Lego factory I'll never know. She is positively freakish.

Curious, I have limited time but I would appreciate information on the comment you made about posting the Nicole Simpson 911 call yesterday. The timing is too coincidental, and with all the TMZ stories and comments, it'll be like finding a needle in a haystack.
---------------------------------------------------------

It was simple really. Another poster made the comparison of Miss Oksana to Miss Nicole with special regard to the ranting recordings.

I posted the 911 call to show the difference.
And correction, it was posted 8-9, not 8-10:

Rant time.

I'm getting a tad tired of the comparison between Nicole Simpson Brown and Miss Oksana.

The whole has heard the recording Miss Oksana did in February, all in a single night where she was in "fear for her life".

Did everyone hear her voice? Did you all listen closely?
Good.

Now listen to Nicole.
*WARNING - this may be a trigger for those of you who have suffered through the horror of actual domestic violence. You may want to skip the experience of a 911 call made by Nicole.*

Explain to me how a recording proven to have been tampered with is similar to that.

The picture of Oksana's teeth look like she did a face plant or hit something. If someone hit her hard enough to knock out her teeth, she wouldn't look like that. Her face and mouth would be swollen and bruised and her lip would be busted.

Just because Gibson asked how her teeth were didn't mean he hit her. He could have seen her fall, knew that her teeth were chipped and was honestly concerned. Apologizing isn't an admission of beating her either. He lost his temper and said things in the heat of anger which is normal to apologize for. And even telling her he wasn't safe (likely because he wanted to hit her) isn't an admission of guilt either. The so-called "evidence" only evidences that she chipped her teeth through non violent means- based on the photos.

The tapes evidence that he was enraged by her and that he thought she was an ungrateful user. There is a basis for his opinion.

Needless to say, if a man, enraged as MG, beat a women bad enough to knock out her veneers, she's likely would of ended up in the hospital or with significant enough tissue damage to have any dentist or doctor report it.

So when I keep hearing ROL and other go on about the evidence, I think they are a sandwich shy of a picnic. There is no conclusive evidence. There is, however, reasonable doubt caused by the very evidence presented and expert opinion that the tapes had been tampered. That is aside from the fact that there was/is a court order against the tapes being released.

Will the IQ Fairy please leave a brain under Oksana's pillow? And will Team Oksana stop plagiarizing TMZ commenters for ROL's next breaking story.

Shameless.

Things sure do look stinky for ROL since they'd be fools to try and blame Alexander now. ;)

Krista -

I also find it interesting that besides ROL no longer carrying the stories associated with the photographic "evidence", they do not seem to be allowing any new commenters either.

I guess they may afraid of people posting something inconvenient.

Anyone know if Mr. Spertus accepts credit cards?

Wasn't Kris and CO AKA THE BODYGUARD GROUP there the day Oksana went to Mr. Spertus' office?

Can someone tell me why this attorney is considered some sort of computer expert?

I thought about that as well... she very well could have told mel about her teeth. Those tapes are edited so we really dont know in what context it was meant.
I'm sure when the abuse charges are dropped, instead of admitting they were wrong for believing the gold digger, team oksana will scream celebrity justice.
I really do hope that when oksana holds up the white flag, that Mel just drops his head and keeps charging. She needs to be punished for what shes done. Perhaps made an example of, so other gold diggers think twice before attempting to destroy a man, his family and his career.
