Belinda Temple case - David Temple's shotgun - Where is it?

Deborah Berger, teacher (& Belinda Temple's friend) testified that although Belinda was experiencing some of the swelling normal with pregnancy, Belinda was happy, looking forward to the birth of the baby.

Belinda Temple was murdered with a shotgun. Although the Defense is trying to show that David Temple did not own a shotgun at the time of the murder, David Temple's father had given David a shotgun as a gift. The where abouts of that shotgun is in question.

A long time friend of Kevin Temple testified regarding his knowledge of previous gun ownership and shotguns within the Temple family. Stockdick has been hunting with the Temples since a child and owned shotguns since 7 years old. So it's likely he knows what he's talking about when he speaks of various gauges of shotguns.

"I hunted with Kevin in Katy every weekend and sometimes during the week. David also went along regularly." "David bought a 12-gauge shotgun from Everett's jewelry and loan, ,across from Katy High School after he graduated in 1990." "David owned at least three 12-gauge shotguns through the years, two pump shotguns and a semi-automatic shotgun."
