Rummaging through some old documents regarding the Barrera mortgage fraud case.

I'm going through some old paperwork I've collected over the last couple of years when I stumble upon this letter from the Bernardo Barrera mortgage fraud case:

Statement From Celia Ritchie From Citi Mortgage Regarding the Bernardo Barrera Mortgage Fraud Case                                                            

No big deal right?  We've discussed this letter before, specifically how Detective Jorge Baluja dictated the content of the letter to the representative of Citi Mortgage...


Besides the obvious problem of Detective telling a witness what to say, I noticed something else that I missed before, take a look at the date the letter was written and also the date from the fax transmission on the top of the page.  In case you can't see the dates, click on the picture to enlarge...


The affidavit was dated September 11, 2008, a rather ominous date don't you think?  The date on the top left hand corner of the page shows that it was faxed on May 5, 2009.  We know that the arrests in the Barrera case were made on October 3, 2008, so obviously this statement was in the states hands for nearly a month before the arrests, what about that May 5, 2009 time stamp?  Does it mean anything?  We'll have to do some digging to see if there's any other documents that could explain if there's any significance to that time stamp, I can tell you this much though, the old spidey senses are tingling again...
