My question was, if the cops intended to massage Jay's story, why would they get him on the record telling conflicting stories? Even if they slowly reached that point, why would they document his earlier different stories?

This is incorrect. Adnan was always the target as far as the police questioning Jay. The only reason they contacted him and Jenn was because they were called from Adnan's phone.

But why keep all the "rough drafts" if they knowingly are setting up a better interview.

THERE IS NO EVIDENCE JAY WAS CHEATING ON STEPHANIE. And even if he was there is not evidence Hae knew, that she was gonna tell Stephanie, or that Jay knew she was gonna tell on him.

How so? How many rape, assault, and robbery cases are based on the victim's word? If I walked up to you on the street and punched you in the face, would you think your own testimony was insufficient to convict me?
