Tuesday, Whitney O'Brien one of the key figures in this case took the stand this morning and shared what she remembered from that day.
O'Brien was one of the drug dealers the day Thrasher was murdered and was in the car when the shots were fired.
She says Thrasher tried to run out of the SUV without paying for the drugs and she tried to grab him. As Thrasher attempted to run Justin Love, the driver that day, told Blayne Brooks to shoot Thrasher.
O'Brien says she could tell Thrasher was not dead after the initial gun shot as the car drove away.
She says she was scared and wanted to tell police but did have the courage to do so.
After the shooting the three then stopped at Love's house on Kimberly Lane.
Loves wife, who also took the stand Tuesday, was at that house told the jury that Justin called her before arriving at the house telling her to remove all the drugs and guns from the house.
When the three arrived she says Brooks and O'Brien seemed shaken.
Love's wife said she overheard Love tell Brooks to dispose of the gun by tossing it into a lake.
That gun has still not been found.
