Josh Woodward update: Not out of the woods yet as LAPD almost ready to present its case
It's been pretty quiet since Josh Woodward was arrested for allegedly, "intentionally" giving his LA girlfriend a drug that caused the death of an unborn fetus back in October of 2009. After Woodward was released on $2 million bail, the investigation continued and so did rumors that the former Miami restaurateur was in Miami and St. Barth---with Suzy Buckley, the Miami girlfriend who allegedly dumped him after finding out she was duped. An article in the LA Times today says that lab tests prove that Woodward was indeed in possession of misoprostol, a substance used to induce labor and early term abortions. According to LAPD captain Fabian E. Lizarraga,they are still conducting an active investigation and are almost ready to present their evidence to the LA DA. Of course Team Woodward, lawyers Mark Werksman and Mitchell Edgars, don't think the cops have a case. Still a mystery is the name of Woodward's formerly pregnant girlfriend who, according to the LA Times, "told detectives she was suspicious at 'how and what had happened.'" So is everyone else, it seems.
