Meredith Emerson was kidnapped by Gary Hilton while she was taking a hike on New Year's Day 2008 in the north Georgia mountains with her dog.
Using her wits and training as a martial artist, Meredith Emerson struggled against Gary Hilton, who was looking for easy prey. He stated that she got a knife away from him as well as a baton. In his confession he coldly described to investigators how he had kidnapped her, beat and eventually killed her. He pleaded guilty to murdering Meredith Emerson and was sentenced to life. Georgia officials agreed not to seek the death penalty if he would show them where he left her body. He led investigators to a spot in a wooded area in north Georgia where they found the body of Meredith Emerson on January 7, 2008. Gary Hilton is being investigated for several other murders.
Here is an example of a case where there is a confession to a murder. The person leads authorities to the exact location where the body is found. And he is convicted in the court of law for the crime. This shows irrefutable proof of Gary Hilton’s involvement. Therefore can reverse speech examples that are found on Gary Hilton, regarding any involvement with the crime, leave any doubt as to the accuracy and validity of reverse speech? In these examples, his reversals are congruent with the forward speech in referencing Meredith Emerson as he relates his story.

...I think it was you pro[bably that said "That little 120 pound] girl about probably close to whip your ass". Well, she about did.
I do not remember who was that skillful. (A reference to her martial art skills.)
...I had to go out of the van. [Walk the 100 yards or wherever to] it. Run it. You know, come back. She'd give me some other story.
This girl was arguing it with a fault. (She would not give the correct P.I.N.)
...[And she fought, and she grabbed the knife]. I lost control of the knife. And then I produced the baton. And she fought that, and I lost control of the baton. And I'm good too.
(This is the same recount as the first example from WDEF, but it is not exact except in both recordings he says “and I’m good too”. Two different recordings, but it seems important he wants it known that he is “good”. She made him look bad by disarming him, making it an “embarrassment” to him.)
I'm gonna tell ya right now, [there was never any plan to let her go].
(Notice in the recording how he describes her injuries in the past tense, except when his talking about her nose when he says “She may or may not have a fractured nose”. His statements are segmented by the news reports, making it difficult to know the continuity of his confession. The reporter says he raped Meredith because he was angry she kept giving him the wrong P.I.N.. He may have raped her, but his reverse speech indicates that not only did he know with certainty it was broken, he intentionally broke her nose to try and get her to tell him the P.I.N. to her account.)
Oh, uh, I know what you’re getti[n' at. The unsolved murders. Uh].
(Is he involved with the other murders where he knows he is a person of interest? If the other reversals are accurate, can this one be wrong?)
