Witnesses back up theory Goodman went to "man cave" after crash

 By Brian Entin

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Two witnesses spent Thursday backing up the defense's theory that John Goodman did go to a "man cave" after the crash that killed Scott Wilson.

Mark Da Silva lived near the mancave on Kris Kampsen's property. They did not specifically see Goodman at the man cave, but they say they heard banging noises near the time he would have been there. Goodman claims he drank alcohol in the man cave after the February 2010 crash that killed Scott Wilson.

The Da Silva's say a deputy showed up to their apartment around 3:30 a.m. "I heard someone knocking loudly on the door, and I saw the officer. He asked if I saw anyone looking for help or a phone, and I told him no," Da Silva said.

Mark Da Silva says when he went to bed for the night, the lights and television in the mancave were off. He says when he woke up, and went outside, the lights and television were on. That backs up Goodman's claim that he turned the lights and television on in the mancave before drinking the alcohol.

Defense expert testimony will continue on Friday. The state is expected to call rebuttal witnesses on Saturday, and closing arguments will likely begin on Monday.
