The above audio shows some very serious issues with the Gloucester Animal Control file DW_C0152 and Steve Baranek's claims about the audio. We were granted permission by the victims in this case to go back to their property and conduct a number of simulation tests. Our objective was to see if any area of the audio could be even considered somewhat authentic. All of our simulation tests failed to show any accuracy with the audio, DW_C0152, as could have possibly happened the way the audio claims it did. We loaded the audio onto one of our tablets and tried numerous recreations to validate any area of the audio. Every simulation we tried just did not stand up.
Let's start with this above audio. Steve Baranek would have you believe he is driving down a road and then into the driveway of the victims property. Yet you do not hear any motor running nor do you hear any tire road noise. In fairness, we cut out tiny sections of audio file DW_C0152 where the victims names and later address was used. In our own simulation, we used a pocket recorder like Steve was using. It's a Sony digital recorder. We did not talk during the taping as we were just looking to see if we could even pick up any road noise. Sure enough we picked up all the road noise, the turn signal used to turn into the driveway, the difference in the road noise between the main road and the driveway, all the sounds of turning off the engine and opening and closing our doors. We were in an SUV for our tests.
