Yesterday, Buck Bradley ... a former member of the D-Day Foundation's board of directors ... told the jury he was shocked to learn contractors were not being paid in the months before the memorial's dedication in June of 2001.
Bradley says Burrow never told anyone about the financial troubles the foundation was having.
Prosecutors say Burrow was playing a financial shell game, using uncertain pledges as collateral for bank loans to keep the project afloat.
The trial continues through next week. (------------)
