I was told in a pm that this person thought that Raven played with a spanish league. However the only one that was listed on the now defunct ncsoccer page that had a website and pictures turned up with no Raven. On the internet site, it said they had meetings on Wednesday nights. I don't know what they meant by meetings, wether it was a game or an actual meeting. But wasn't Janet killed on a Tuesday?

I remember a few of the web sites for various leagues in the area has also not been updated for awhile.

GM--how do you get to a cached version? I was having problems doing that too.

When you do a google search, say of the term *ncsoccer* instead of clicking directly on the link, look down a line or so and you'll see a blue link like this Cached click on that link to see the cached version of the website.

Hi there... I received a pm from a credible source that Raven played in a pickup game the night Janet was murdered.
I did not receive times or league information or anything more.

I got to it, but did you see that there was a place called "intent to play"? I couldn't get that to open up. Just wondering if we could find Raven's name there.

Is it a possibility that this site is offline right now while they update it? Because they list the president as someone else other than Raven's friend. Or was Raven's friend a local president?

ncsoccer.org is the main site for all of north carolina youth soccer. on that site there was a link to an org call ncasa or north carolina adult soccer association. it is ncasa that his friend is president of.

My original post in discussion #3 added here as its part of this topic.

Great info on the soccer equipment, I thought the issue had been stolen money so it's interesting to learn it was actually merchandise. I bet Golfmom is right that he sold this stuff on ebay. Too bad we can't get a history.

I've been trying to track down the actual soccer game -- I believe, and this is without tracking back to look, that MissYouJanet said he left the house about 7:30 PM and returned about 10:30 PM. If that's the case, I'm going to assume a playing time of one hour, another hour or so to account for warmup, possible late start, chatting, change afterwood, which leaves the last hour for r/t of 30 mins each way. Within those parameters, I tried to look for a league that had a game that fit the timeframe.

I first found the North Carolina Adult Soccer Assn, of which his friend, Daruis Ejlali, is President. NCASA (http://www,ncsoccer.org/ncasa)

From there, I looked at the links of clubs/leagues that were in the geographic area that made sense timewise. You can view this info on the "Where to Play" link at top of homepage. Once looking at the different areas and deciding which made sense geographically, I then looked at each club/league to see whether any played the night of the murder. The only one I found is TASL (http://www.triangleadultsoccer.org) . If you go to schedule, you will see the Coed Section C plays on Tuesday nights. There were two games (so 4 teams) that had a game at 8:30 PM on that night, which fits. I wish I could confirm one way or the other, but this is the best I could come up with.

"apparently with these pick up games, when you arrive you sign in with your first name only."

IF LE is having a hard time locating ppl to verify that he was there, this could be a case for why!

Ok, we have a problem here. All the info being swapped via pm, then posted as fact here on the forums really isnt fair to other members, as they have no way of questioning the person who gave the info. If pm's are being sent, then obviously the sender is a member...they need to post the info themselves, not play "tag" via pm.

I did not receive times or league information or anything more.I guess I can understand why some people are apprehensive about posting but I'd really like to know - if they know for sure that he was playing, do they know what he was wearing? What time the game started? What time he arrived? What time it ended? What time he left? If there's half-time? Whether or not he was there during half-time? Where the game was - how far from Raven's home?

Please ... lurkers, pm'ers ... join us.

Quoting law enforcement is quite different than claiming to be a family member. Members are free to ask for links to news articles, or free to contact LE to verify what they have or have not said.

We are not going to have a forum where anyone with an opposing view is labled as being Raven, or Ravens family etc.

Not everyone is ready to say without a doubt Raven committed this crime. To date, I have not read or heard anything from law enforcement that leads me to feel they are anywhere near naming Raven as a suspect in this crime.

You are, of course, free to speculate on your theories of Ravens guilt, but you are NOT free to condem those that dont share your opinion.

And that is the heart of WS! Just like in life, it is not what is said to you, but how you react to it. Slamming another poster or treating them with disrespect just because you don't like what they post is no different than punching someone in the face if you don't like what they say. It would be totally unacceptable.

No one that I have seen has slammed anyone. If anything, a pro-Raven poster has made some remarks to another poster about being "narrow-minded" which is the only real personal attack I have seen on this forum.
Everyone else seems to be just asking questions.
Maybe i missed something ...

anyway, this is a thread about the soccer game info, and i'm sad that this has been posted under this particular thread. We have posts on all the other threads in this forum about info posted from PMs... I would've liked to keep this conversation under general discussion and keep the soccer thread about soccer. That's why I started this thread.
Can we move these posts, if possible, to a general discussion thread or a thread of its own? I'm afraid these semi-negative posts may keep someone from posting some real soccer info.

thanks

Timex,
THANK YOU!
It's very frustrating to me to read posts which say " I received info via PM which stated blah blah thus and so".

WHY can't the person who is registered and sent the PM state their own version of the truth on the board instead of being in stealth mode?

I would like to make this statement, as it applies to integrity of knowledge and information in this murder case:
I trust the following frequent case posters: Misterallgood, who brought the case to WS, Golfmom, PrayersForMaura and JerseyGirl, LaurieJ and the site moderators, whom I believe are Timex, Chicoliving, and possibly Tybe?
Oh, and I also trust the established members who are just now wading through the info and speculation on this case and who will hopefully be posting soon. They are proven to be posters of integrity with a desire for the truth.

I know that some of you are getting many PMs from people who will not post, but want you to do it for them. I did too until I stopped replying to the hush hush PMs and also stopped posting their innuendos for them. .

The truth does NOT live in darkness. Look at the current political news and the furor over who Woodward and Bernstein's " deep throat" contact is/ was.
The man is 91 years old, but because he hid in the shadows, people have been more interested in who he was than what he had to say and what he knew and knows. This is not meant as a condemnation or an approval of any political party, just stating the facts. Felts is news, 30 years after the " deep throat" undercover work was done.

What needs to be said here needs to have some factual basis behind it, or said to be a hunch or an intuitive type thought. This " He said, she said" is causing a lot of questions because it is NOT the norm regarding a murder where there is no press and little interest outside our small circle.

I will not be trusting anything else said as a " he said, she said but I can't tell you anything else OR back it up because it was said to me in confidence .

To the best of my knowledge, no forum discussion has ever relied upon the whispers in the background to give info, unless it was a source close to LE, and even then, the info is suspect because it has to be ANONYMOUS.

If I find something relevant to the case, or if I put a couple of ideas together and come up with something we haven't discussed, then I have the courage to stand and tell it.
Janet deserves that much.

Those of you who are encouraging PM interaction may be , in fact, DISCOURAGING free discussion of information which may or may not be true.
Like I said, truth lives in the light, not in the shadows of a hush hush kind of communication with new members who refuse to post.

New members, those of us who do post are no different from you. We are not better than you, we are not more articulate than you, we are not immune from criticism more than you, nothing is different.
My message to you is that I think you should have the strength to post what you want to be known right here on this forum.
We have no way of knowing who " DaFfy dUcK" or " DaddY WarBucks", for example, are.
Make up a screen name and say what you have to say!!! Then the free flow of conversation can progress with you. .

Thanks again, Timex. I have been very frustrated by the clandestine elements of this particular crime discussion.

Ditto. I don't think the motive for encouraging the PM activity is selfish in any way, but I do think it disrupts the purpose and process of what the site is about.

FWIW, I've been around enough message board sites, including being a Mod at one, that I know the PM issue transcends all subject matter and causes problems for differing reasons at each one. People just don't like to feel out of the loop, whatever the reason,and it creates tensions.

That does sound like a great program. I've been involved in programs recycling golf equipment and reshafting them for kids. So it sounds like the league purchased new equipment and passed on their old equipment to a worth cause.

Munch, do you happen to know the names of leagues that Raven might have played with?

As of last fall, I don't have "confirmed" leagues that he played in. Although I know he went to Charlotte to play there some and I believe he played in a Chapel Hill or Raleigh league, which are in Orange and Wake county, respectively. I know that someone checked into the assault charge and found nothing in Durham county. I think that's because it didn't happen in the Durham league.

Ok, so I said I was digging around in our old "stuff." And something occurs to me (that I'm sure you guys thought about weeks ago, but bear with me..)..

This soccer game.

The ONLY reference to this soccer game that I can find is in an initial news story on WTVD (which is the local ABC affiliate, based in Durham). They did reference it again, later, in a follow-up story. Based on all the media links I just went through and read, not one other media outlet reported the soccer game info.

Further, WTVD reported the following line in that initial story:

"Family members tell Eyewitness News that her husband, Raven, went to a soccer game and found his wife's body when he got home."

That's it, that's all we have. That according to WTVD, FAMILY MEMBERS (Raven's or Janet's, we have no idea) reported that Raven went to a soccer game.

Never has there been a quote from ANYONE in LE regarding Raven's alibi for that night. Never.

I've ALWAYS thought it odd that not one single person has ever come forth, at least here, or in media, to verify the soccer "alibi." It would seem like such a ridiculously easy "out" as far as forcing attention away from Raven as a suspect. Now, that said, who knows, perhaps 25 different people have vouched for Raven's presence at a soccer game that night. Who knows. And, if that's indeed the case, why such silence about it??

I know how media outlets love to get some scoop. But I also thought it odd that not one other media outlet reported that information (that I can find anyway...correct me if I'm wrong).

Makes you wonder - did Raven actually go to a soccer game that night?

I recall someone posting something about a pickup game. I sure would like to have some more info on that... but, wouldn't we all!

Now, all of that said. If Raven did indeed play soccer that night, and someone has verifiable proof of this.... then I say, BRING IT ON!

:doh: I've said a number of times how strange I found it that no one has ever come forward to say that they've played soccer with Raven. Not even talking about as an alibi, but as a person on his team or an opponent.

I remember originally thinking that the soccer game alibi was UNVERIFIED, but quite frankly it passed over into VERIFIED information in my brain quite a long time ago.

SES & GM--I remember talking about the whole "family members" quote. And I wonder, GM, if it slipped into your VALIDATED file because NCBanker (I think, correct me if I'm wrong) said that he had information from his cousin verifying it.

So, I think that maybe we need to put it into the UNVALIDATED pile (isn't that getting full yet?) because there's been no word from LE about it or any credible post-er here saying that he was actually playing a game.

Here's another theory--maybe no one remembers him because he came late? or maybe he didn't usually show up at this particular pick-up game? If there's someone out there who can't sign up to post here, could they make a comment on Mr. AG's blog? Mr. AG, I'm sure you could handle that information, right? And then maybe post the quote here? Or is that a violation of some sort, Timex?

Im not getting into how ya'll are going to determine what has or has not been validated. Ive seen posts where Rooster says he/she is validating something...if that's considered validated by ya'lls standards, thats fine.


As for me personally, untill I hear it from LE or at trial, I wouldnt think much of it. I dont say that to undermine anyone...I say it because I honestly dont know who posters are here, so have no way of knowing if what they say is fact or not. Anyone could sign up and say....Yeah, I was with raven that night at the soccer game". That would mean nothing to me, as I would have no way of knowing if the person was or was not. I hope that makes sense, and doesnt sound condensending, because it wasnt intended to be.

Point taken. However, should someone come on to WS, and claim to have been with Raven that evening, playing soccer, or whatever, one would hope that that same person would share that information with LE (unless they already have of course).

You are absolutely right though Timex - ANYONE could come on here, sign up, and post, "Hey guys, ok, I was with Raven playing soccer that night." But, coming on here and making a statement like that has consequences as well -

Anyone coming on this board and just spouting off information, surely must know from reading the posts, that most anything they say will be grabbed onto, and pursued, doggedly, in order to validate, or, dismiss...

And do remember, GM contacted LE in Durham weeks ago, informing them about this board, and passing along various bits of pertinent information. Accordingly, my first question/comment to anyone posting that sort of comment would be, "That's great! So you've shared this with LE already, right? And if not, we need to pass that along to the invesigator in charge."

That still would not obviously prove anything, no. It relates to a post I made earlier today - the ONLY comment we have regarding the soccer game at all, is from a media source, who attributed the commment to "family members."

Validation, confirmation, whatever you want to call it, in MY mind anyway, come with undeniable PROOF. Facts, as they say, are facts!

Everything you say is true. But LE isnt going to be bothered chasing down every nut that posts on these boards. We get them during every case. LE simply doesnt have the resources to check every person that makes a claim here. Do they read here? Im sure they do. Are they going to tell us if someone here is yanking our chain? I highly doubt it, and would consider it very unprofessional for them to do so.

Looking at this picture, I noticed a dog tie on the porch. In the video, we saw Janet giving the dogs water on the porch. It was posted, that the dogs were in their kennel the night of Janet's murder. If Raven was leaving at night for a soccer game, why wouldn't the dogs be tied on the porch for some protection for his wife/baby from a possible intruder? I am thinking that if the dogs were in the kennel for the night, nobody was planning on leaving that night!http://ravenstree.com/images/Kaiden%20Images/IMGA0403.JPG

Regarding the question of why no one has come forward on this forum to validate Raven's claim of playing soccer the night of the murder, it has been established that the majority of those with whom Raven played were Hispanic, and possibly living here illegally. This is not a racist statement, but one of fact. The soccer team websites show the majority of the members being Hispanic. I have worked closely with and employed Hispanics in the past, and the majority of them were not here legitimately. In fact, I've caught several using social security numbers which are stolen from both the living and deceased, or one legitimate number being shared among a group. The last thing they're going to do is step into the limelight, only to be under scrutiny themselves.

So along this train of thought -

Ok, so Raven heads out sometime the evening of the 25th to play soccer. Possibly finds a pick up game, as has been reported here anyway. And let's assume the game is being played primarily by Hispanic players, if not all.

Raven talks to LE, tells them his whereabouts for the evening. Let's say he goes so far as to say, "I really didn't know any of these guys, I just saw the game and played," or something to that effect.

Fact: Raven should at least be able to tell LE where the game was being played. At least the approx time he arrived, and later departed.

That said, LE now has the task to verify this information.

This being a pick up game, with no players names given to them, the task is perhaps a little more challenging than might normally be the case.

But, it's hard for me to imagine that LE did not/has not pursued that soccer game alibi, doggedly. Maybe they find out who routinely plays at this field, what days are routinely played, etc. And then, I would hope, at some point at least, they stumble across a similar game, etc. And questioning the players would become imperative. Illegally in this country and working or whatever? Perhaps. But being asked by LE simply to verify a person's presence at a game, doesn't necessarily imply they are going to be deported. On the flip side, NOT cooperating with LE would be the poor choice here...

While I think the "illegal Hispanic players" point has merit, this is a homicide case. And if this scenario was indeed given as an alibi for any POI, then my bet is LE left no stone unturned.

All of that said - I can certainly see why no one might have come foward on THIS forum, sure. But, speaking here, and speaking directly to LE, are two entirely different things.

NCBanker
06-22-2005, 12:49 PM
My point was that,

A. Diehard Hispanic soccer players aren't following unsolved murders on the internet, and

B. They will avoid any and all contact with LE, regardless of how innocent that contact might be. Trust me.

I lived in Latin America for 2 years, work in international business and have been involved with the Hispanic members of our faith for many years. I base my theories on this experience.

If you look closer at the link, it talks about the organization donating soccer gear to some league in Africa, and that Eurosport arranged and paid for the shipping. When I first saw the Eurosport name there, I grasped at the same thing..then read further....


A lot of teams have sponsors that buy everything the players need. My daughter played on a women's softball team in Texas and Coors was their sponsor. Coors bought the outfits...mitts...softballs...bats...etc..for each player. I still have her bat and ball. Most sponsors do pay for everything.

From the earlier new articles it sounded like Raven did play that night. If he was actually playing...suited up and right there with the other players...he is probably not the killer. It seems like something would have happened with LE by now if Raven is guilty. I'd say he either didn't do it or LE didn't have enough evidence. I would just like to know where LE is in their investigation.

.........exactly.....where IS LE in their investigation?
...that's the big question........THEY were the one to say, right from day one, it was "not random"..."no need for the public to worry"...blah blah blah...

...and yet, no arrest ? no follow up from LE since ?

...if i lived in that neighbourhood, i'd sure be worried....a young woman stabbed to death 8 weeks ago, her baby in the next room........!?

...if raven is a POI....fine.....( and they're giving him leeway/rope to hang himself.....)

...if not.....and i were raven.......( and surely we can assume he's done a google search and read this ENTIRE forum.........................probably has the bruises on his jaw still to prove it.....)then HE should be all over the media, "my god.....i'm 110% innocent...............i have an alibi ( link/witnesses ) ...i've read all sorts of horrible things all over the internet.....i LOVED my wife...( link: to his memorial to janet....)(oh..............right.....he never finished that.....)

...of course he does have a lawyer...........at least for the embezzling case ....and perhaps has been advised to say nothing.....but personally...........INNOCENT.....there's no way i could sit still and not want to clear my name, after reading page after page of accusations about myself.....

...instead.....he hasn't been posting on his favourite forums.....erased himself actually from at least one.....taken down the family web site.....and....................taken off from NC/VA to utah........WILL he return for the july 22nd hearing on the embezzelment charges ?

...i would think....an innocent man would....:
...definietly post a memorial to his wife..............( internet savvy as raven i s....)complete with guest book, etc.....
...be aware of the power of the media: and use them to his advantage, ie: interviews all over the place , getting the story out there and asking for help in any way....he seems like the type to me that would be HOUNDING the media...demanding to bring janet's killer to justice...

...and yet we've heard nothing from raven..........or LE...or the media....
...his silence says a lot...
...theirs is questionable ?.( DOES LE owe the public an ongoing explanation? i have no idea, but i think their "not random" statement 2 months ago is reason enough to merit a reply from them now..........
...media: sure they've had 3 murders again in just the past week.!.........so they elect to put janet 's case on the back burner ?

...someone is getting away with murder in durham NC.....LE isn't talking.....the media doesn't appear to care.........

As sad as it is, I really don't read much or are concerned about gang members killing gang members or a drug deal turned bad and a murder was committed but this is not what happened here. As you say, JG, a young girl was brutally stabbed to death in her own home between 7:00 and 11:00 pm. Yes, the LE has stated it was not random.......but, what, almost two months later, no mentioned suspects, POIs, or arrests. I just don't get it.:banghead:

Hey soccer players, how long does an adult pickup soccer game last?
A regulation soccer game is 45 minutes per half with a 10-20 minute halftime. The problem with pickup soccer games, or even organized league games is that times vary GREATLY. I played in a 6v6 league during which we played 20 minute halves. Pickup games can last anywhere from one to three or even four hours, not necessarily with 11 players on each side, not even necessarily with real goals. You just play to play. I don't know if that was the kind of game Raven was playing in, but I wouldn't be surprised if it were.

Someone mentioned they would like to know if we played with Janet or Raven, so I'll let it be known that I played with Janet at SVU. They were both very good, and both loved the game, as has been mentioned.

Fields are available by reservation ...


• Permanent seating for 7,000 with expansion capability
• Lighted stadium field, two lighted practice fields & four other fields
• Concessions, locker rooms, rest rooms & meeting space
• 2,600 parking spaces

SAS Soccer Park was home to the Carolina Courage of the Women's United Soccer Association until the league suspended play in September 2003.

The Town of Cary assumed responsibility (http://www.townofcary.org/agenda/councilmin04/cm051304i.htm#soccer) for operations and maintenance in 2004 from Capital Area Soccer League.

It IS a huge facility - used for everything from kids leagues, to professional games, to area pick-up games, to HS games, etc. When the pro women's soccer league was still alive and well, the Carolina Courage played their games here. It's owned by the city, but SAS, which is THE large employer in Cary, bought naming rights, etc.

A regulation soccer game is 45 minutes per half with a 10-20 minute halftime. The problem with pickup soccer games, or even organized league games is that times vary GREATLY.And with the lights on the field, it could have been four hours if they had wanted to play that long.

IF they played regulation, and the game started at 8:00 as we've heard, the game would have been over sometime between 9:40 and 9:50 P.M. Add in a 33 minute drive, and that takes us to between 10:13 and 10:23. And if he stopped off to get the Gatorade on the way home, that would only take a few minutes. That would bring us to probably 10:25 or 10:30. We don't know how fast he was driving or if there was any traffic but even so, the "onset of injury" was about 10:50. That leaves about twenty minutes or so for any traffic he might have experienced.

I'm not really going anywhere with this. Just wanted to figure out the timing.

Sounds like they may indeed have played a regulation game, (unless Raven left early because he said that he got home around 10:30)?

I too heard that Raven said he experienced an "odd" feeling during the soccer game. But to my knowledge he did not leave the game early, he only said he had an odd feeling.
Sounds so much like a Mormon story--not to discredit that these things can happen--but it's like he wanted it to sound that way to take some heat off of himself.

Ah to adhere to the religion that he obviously had already abandoned...he's slime.

Honestly, I don't know if it's a story that I'd heard that Raven told, or a rumor, but I'm pretty sure I heard it somewhere! (sorry not very specific, it's all beginning to run together!) Only one person knows the truth, but unfortunately, she's not alive to tell us. :(

It IS a huge facility - used for everything from kids leagues, to professional games, to area pick-up games, to HS games, etc. When the pro women's soccer league was still alive and well, the Carolina Courage played their games here. It's owned by the city, but SAS, which is THE large employer in Cary, bought naming rights, etc.

I think a good number of the local leagues play here as well.

And, a quick drive from Durham as well!!
...i contacted the field manager, asking it it would be possible for an un-registered league, a group of dedicated soccer players, to rent the field for a "pick-up" game.......

his response:


What night? What times? I need some more information. Shouldn't be a problem in the least.

This sounds so contrived on Raven's part. What was this odd feeling? Obviously it couldn't have been anything too bad if he didn't bother to leave the game early. And then possibly stopped off for that Gatorade on his way home.
An odd feeling? What? That he felt like going home and killing his wife and unborn child? That would a psychotic feeling, not an odd one!

If this "odd" feeling was real, wonder if he called home to Janet to make sure everything is ok? I'm sure his phone records would show the phone call and if there wasn't one, how "odd" could it really have been??

So there isn't a way to verify that Raven actually did play soccer that night and what time the game started and what time it got over? It's hard to figure anything else out unless we know if he played or not and if he did what time the game started and ended. LE must be having a difficult time finding any evidence or they would have arrested him by now. If we could just find out for fact about the darn game then we would know if he has a solid alibi or not.
We would need to know how long it would take him to drive home from the game..if he went to one.

I've always wondered if he didn't kill Janet but I am uncomfortable even thinking that when I don't know if he actually played soccer that night and the timeline if he did. I don't feel like I know enough to focus on anyone.

Just my personal opinion Bobbi, I believe they have all the evidence that they need that Raven is the murderer. What I believe they were lacking is evidence of premeditation. I don't think they want a repeat of the Peterson East trial and are taking their time ensuring every detail is solid before he is arrested.

Ok, so in light on the new LE press info, we have a few new bits of information regarding the infamous soccer game.

The WRAL article references that Raven left Ferrand "around 830pm" to go play indoor soccer in Morrisville. (Morrisville is a small town, SE of Durham, near the airport, and before Cary and ultimately Raleigh.)

I found a reference to one place in Morrisville that offers indoor soccer, the Carolina Sportsplex:

http://www.carolinasportsplex.com/

Informationally, I also checked Mapquest for info on distances and routes between Ferrand and the Carolina Sportsplex (3717 Davis Dr., Morrisville) - a pretty easy and direct route, as it's mostly highway driving.

It appears that the distance is about 20.71 miles, with an approx. driving time of 30 minutes.

http://www.mapquest.com/directions/main.adp?go=1&do=nw&rmm=1&2si=navt&un=m&2gi=0&cl=EN&ct=NA&2da=-1.000000&2rc=L1AAA&rsres=1&1y=US&1ffi=&1l=&1g=&1pl=&1v=&1n=&1pn=&1a=2606+FERRAND+DR&1c=DURHAM&1s=NC&1z=27705-1738&panelbtn=1&2y=US&2ffi=&2l=jG76fGy9dXM%253d&2g=q8fuhJsMfSE%253d&2pl=&2v=ADDRESS&2n=WAKE+COUNTY&2pn=&2a=3717+DAVIS+DR&2c=MORRISVILLE&2s=NC&2z=27560-8847


I'm sure there's much to dig into here, but I wanted to get this info on here quickly.

What we do know - IF Raven left Ferrand at 830pm, then if he drove directly to Morrisville, he arrived around 900pm. We always HEARD that he arrived home around 1030pm that evening, and extrapolating backwards, that would imply he left Morrisville around 1000pm, thus having played soccer for one hour....and, this assumes too that he drove straight home from soccer.... IF in fact he made any stops, either coming or going, the actual soccer playing time could be less, or, his arrival time home could be something different as well.... Just some randoms thoughts at this point anyway....

You read my mind, SES. Soccer for an hour. And we have some stories of him stopping off to get that Gatorade either to or from? That's not a whole lot of soccer. Seems like he might have spent more time driving that night than playing. To drive an hour for less than an hour's worth of play ... what was so important about fitting that partial game in that night?

Janet's injury is at 10:50 and TOD is stated to be 10:55 pm

Couple questions here. How can raven get home at 10:30 or 10:45, kill his wife and hide the murder weapon (so that PD can't find it) and get home to call 911 at 10:58 pm? I wish LE would put out the times that the Durango was on the road. I'm sure they checked with people at the soccer field. When was the last time anybody saw him there? If raven showed up but left at 9:30 and was home by 10:00, he'd have plenty of time. However, if the last person saw him there at 10:25 and he didn't arrive home until 10:50, there is no way.
I noticed in the autopsy report that the View of the Body was done at 11:00 am on the 28th at the morgue and that a ME was called on the 27th (no time listed). WHY wasn't a ME called on the 26th? Obviously the first officers on the scene would know this was a murder. I don't understand why a ME wasn't on the scene immediately?? Am I not understanding something here?

I think this is a good assumption snapple - remember, 911 call was at 1058pm, so by the time LE responded, crime scene techs were called, I would think it was sometime, for sure, on the 27th that the ME was notified... You'll also notice on the ME report that the ME "view of body" was 1100am on the 28th. What we don't know, I don't think, is what time the body was removed from Ferrand Drive. I checked the regulations for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for NC, and according to their various protocols, the timing doesn't seem out of the ordinary.

3.A death will be reported to a medical examiner by any person who has knowledge of the death or who finds the dead body. Usually this will be a law enforcement agency, rescue squad, State Highway Patrol, funeral home, emergency room or private physician. The medical examiner should make a rapid initial evaluation of the reported death to ascertain whether he/she should assume jurisdiction over the case. The medical examiner should tell the reporting party promptly what to do with the dead body. The body should not be removed from the scene of death until the medical examiner has authorized the removal. If an ME plans to go to the scene to view the body this should be made clear to the notifying agents and the ME should respond promptly. Law enforcement officials may authorize removal in emergency situations. The ME should make arrangements with law enforcement agencies, funeral homes, and hospitals in the area to facilitate the prompt disposition of the dead body. The medical examiner may direct that a body be removed from the scene to a more convenient repository for detailed examination at a more convenient time. Most cases will not require the medical examiner's presence at the scene of the death, and the law does not require a scene visit. The ME should make a special effort, if at all possible, to visit the scene of all homicide deaths, and to such other scenes of death as may contribute to a better understanding of the case. If the medical examiner does not visit the scene, the information about the scene, how the body was found, etc., must be obtained from law enforcement, EMS personnel or others having such direct knowledge.

It starts to make it seem like the travel time was longer than the time that Raven was actually at the game. In that case, it almost makes it seem as if soccer that night was just for an alibi.

Secondly, the murder in a tight time frame - I saw a story on Court TV a while back about a man that had murdered a woman and hid the weapon under a floor board in the house before LE arrived. LE searched the house for HOURS and never did find it. So while certain scenarios might seem unlikely, perhaps even highly unlikely, almost nothing is impossible. I still firmly believe that Raven could have hidden a weapon effectively if he had chosen to do so - even in a very tight time frame.

Why would he have needed to take the laptop with him, unless there was something on there he didn't want Janet to see, or access. Maybe Raven took the laptop with him to soccer and lost it conveniently?

(That's the ONLY thing missing from the house mind you. They had jewelry, money, items that were worth more than a laptop sitting there in the home, undisturbed.)

munch - is that something you can confirm 100%? The reason I ask - I had heard, and certainly unconfirmed, a good while ago that in fact there was only ONE computer - the laptop - but, that they also had a docking station for the laptop, so it could be used like a desktop with a regular monitor, keyboard, etc. But again, that was just unconfirmed information...

There was a lot of discussion about that. Knowing that the laptop was missing, I found it interesting that the computer in the picture was a desktop computer with a tower....

In any case, I did find two posts by SES that partially describe what was visible in that pic. It seems that it was NOT evident from the photo whether it was a laptop or a desktop computer:

Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community - View Single Post - Evidence (http://websleuths.com/forums/showpost.php?p=677369&postcount=133)

"... I was looking at the picture from ravenstree.com, the one taken April 24, 2005, with Raven at the computer, with Kaiden in his lap. I wonder if it's possible that instead of having a traditional desktop, if Raven in fact had only the laptop, and used a port to connect it to the monitor? That way the laptop is always flexible..you just pull it out of the port, and off you go. I enlarged the pic and brightened it, but I couldn't really tell much... looks like it might be a flat screen monitor, but otherwise I couldn't really tell if there might be a docking port there for a laptop or not.....

Even so, if that were the case, and the laptop had been removed from the port, the keyboard and monitor would still presumably be there...."

On the left-hand side of the picture, about 1/2 down what looks like the side of a flat screen monitor... Guessing for sure, but that sure looks like a regular telephone there to me.

So maybe she was doing laundry, reading, paying bills ...I think you may be right about this.

I think that's a really good point trix--what was Janet doing when Raven left? Never once did we hear a statement on what she was doing as Raven left the house. Of course, with all the responsibilities that she had--bread winner, mother, adult--I wouldn't blame her if she was watching TV all night. But then, how did she end up in an upstairs bedroom??Office.

I heard the same thing too SES. I thought there was a docking station, but the only confirmation I know was that there was a laptop. There is no confirmation that there was actual desktop computer, just a docking station.They had a laptop (Raven's) A monitor (the one you see in the photo on the website) and a docking station. At one time they had a desk computer, but it was gone by the time they moved into that house on Ferrand.

I just did some searching but can't find that photo with Raven and Kaiden at the computer. All of our links that I've found were links to Ravenstree which Raven dismantled a while back. Does anyone have that picture saved anywhere?

In any case, I did find two posts by SES that partially describe what was visible in that pic. It seems that it was NOT evident from the photo whether it was a laptop or a desktop computer:

Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community - View Single Post - Evidence (http://websleuths.com/forums/showpost.php?p=677369&postcount=133)

"... I was looking at the picture from ravenstree.com, the one taken April 24, 2005, with Raven at the computer, with Kaiden in his lap. I wonder if it's possible that instead of having a traditional desktop, if Raven in fact had only the laptop, and used a port to connect it to the monitor? That way the laptop is always flexible..you just pull it out of the port, and off you go. I enlarged the pic and brightened it, but I couldn't really tell much... looks like it might be a flat screen monitor, but otherwise I couldn't really tell if there might be a docking port there for a laptop or not.....

Even so, if that were the case, and the laptop had been removed from the port, the keyboard and monitor would still presumably be there...."

Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community - View Single Post - Evidence (http://websleuths.com/forums/showpost.php?p=678622&postcount=335)

"I remember, too, that Rooster reported that they ONLY had cell phones, no land line. But, look closely at this picture. (It's the picture from April 24, 2005, with Raven at the computer, holding Kaiden in his lap)... On the left-hand side of the picture, about 1/2 down what looks like the side of a flat screen monitor... Guessing for sure, but that sure looks like a regular telephone there to me. It's not the size/shape of the HP charger that I looked up. Maybe it could be a cellphone charger...but darn, it looks like a regular telephone to me...."
...unfortunately JG..those "old" posts do link to the "ravenstree" pics, which raven has removed.........( oddly enough, although even 'wayback machine' has lost those pics, raven has left some of the wedding photos, and some of he and his friends 'goofing around' still accessible on "wayback"---------------so he DID have options in what he left available..)

..the question-------------why did he choose to remove a cute shot of himself and kaiden ?

..is it because he was clearly sitting at a PC , and it is also missing ?

Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community - View Single Post - General Discussion #7 (http://websleuths.com/forums/showpost.php?p=959379&postcount=85)

The only computer components visible in the pic are the monitor, the keyboard, and something else (that we discussed at great length in the past -lol). That something else is cleary not a tower. So as far as that picture is concerned, there is nothing to show that Raven was using a desktop computer the day before the murder. And if what BirdHunter has said on another thread is true, that Janet was able to e-mail with her friends when Raven allowed her to use his laptop, it sounds as if there was at least no other computer in the house with Internet access.

I also heard from several people that there was indeed only the laptop and that was indeed a dataport, and though they had a monitor, it was just that a monitor with a dataport to plug the laptop into.

I would really love to hear from people that were at the soccer game, in Morrissville that evening and hear from them when was the first time they noticed Raven show up, when did he leave.

I had heard several conflicting reports on this time of arrival and time of departure and his attitude, and things he said afterwards.

Can anyone bring anything new to this discussion?

As an outsider looking in this case seems weak against him to be honest.

He had opportunity and motive if we are to believe that they were breaking up, had major money problems, and she was pregnant. I'll give you that.

Is opportunity and motive without other evidence enough?

In the Peterson case, almost all circumstantial, you have him at the one place, over 90 miles away from home, where the bodys turned up. To me that is one of the main things that made it a slam dunk.

Unless there is blood spray on Raven clothes or something along those lines I don't see how he can be convicted.

Well, we do know for a fact (from the warrant released by LE) that LE took Raven's clothing that night. Was there blood? Who knows. Raven obviously told SOMEONE that he moved Janet that night, as that statement is included in the ME report narrative ("He rolled her over and saw that she was not breathing.") So one could GUESS that he might have had blood on his clothing from moving Janet. And, we know there was blood on the interior of the side door and doorframe, downstairs, and, perhaps on the exterior of the Durango. If Rooster is to be believed, Raven himself deposited the blood on those locations when looking for a phone. But, regardless, that blood made it from the upstairs office/bedroom, downstairs, and outside, somehow....


I guess it opens a question for me too though - in a case that's largely circumstantial, what does it take for a DA to feel confident enough in the CE evidence to give LE the go ahead for an arrest, etc.? Is it the AMOUNT of CE?

To me the blood evidence is easily explained away. The blood evidence we know of anyway.

Unless we can find out differently I see no reason NOT to believe what Raven said he did. Went downstairs, outside, and to the car to look for the phone. Easy to accept. Logical too.

I feel like we have this huge 5000 piece puzzle and all we have are the solid blue border pieces. From this, we are trying to guess the picture. It could be anything.

Wasn't there also blood on the wall leading out to the back door? He also is said to have found Janet on her knees, so this information on he turned her over, is strange to me.

He also led Police to believe she was "hurt" and that she may still be alive. We heard that he told people she was warm still and we heard that he told others she was cold.

These conflicting stories are of interest to me, because it seems the stories change with whomever he speaks to.

JG you are correct he told someone he had to leave early because he had a "strange feeling."

I'm just curious about the 3 different stories that we've heard regarding Raven's interaction with the body and the blood that evening:

1) That he turned her over.
2) That he tried to resuscitate her.
3) That he held her.

It's possible that he did any one or even all of these things. What I find most interesting, however, is that as far as I remember, these three scenarios were allegedly told to different people at different times. It's clearly circumstantial at best but it made me wonder if there were so many different versions because he wasn't exactly sure what investigators could determine by looking at his clothes, and he wanted to have an answer for whatever blood patterns they might find.

Perhaps I shouldn't assume, but I guess I always assumed that it refers back then to those swabbings that were taken from the interior of the storm door and door frame? Perhaps in Early's first observation, he just referenced blood "near" the side door....and then when techs did their work, the specifics of the only swabbings taken around that door, that we know of anyway, mention the interior, etc.?

AND all of this within minutes?? The timeline doesn't make sense to me. His arriving home, TOD and the 911 call. Something isn't right. The time of the 911 call is probably right on...TOD is most likely within 10 minutes or so??....I guess his arriving home time could be wrong. Someone at the soccer game could confirm what time he left and add the driving time so I would think LE could have that fact be pretty accurate. I'm not getting how all of this was accomplished literally in minutes?

If he was involved, then he would have had to dispose of a weapon in a short period of time. If he wasn't involved, it not only seems unlikely that he wouldn't have passed the killer on his way into the house but it also seems unlikely that he would have had enough time to run around looking for phones and attempt to give her a priest's blessing. The times, as we see them, don't seem to allow for either situation - guilt or innocence. And since those are the only two possibilities, something somewhere doesn't seem quite right.

This has always bothered me about this case. NONE of the scenerios seem to add up. If TOD is correct and 911 call is correct, the only scenerio is raven stabbed Janet, decided it was a bad idea, and then called 911 to get help. If help arrived within 5 or 10 minutes, he would have been able to hide the knife during that time. Wasn't raven waiting outside for the ambulance to arrive? Not with his wife, not with his baby, just outside.....was this because he had just ditched the murder weapon?

I would be curious to know how long Raven stayed with the church members immediately following the murder and where he went and who he stayed with in the days before the funeral. Did he ever have time alone to dispose of or hide the weapon while still in Durham?

Could Raven have run to one of the local bodies of water in a few minutes to ditch the weapon? It would be easy then to mask exertion as adrenaline/anxeity. Did LE examine Raven enough? Were there scratch marks from branches or other growth because of him hiding it in the surrounding trees?

The murder weapon has got to be the keystone to this case. Maybe we should start brainstorming this (again).

I believe he was. Someone on here said they saw it at the funeral.So since the VX wasn't at the house on Ferrand Drive that night, it seems likely that it would not have been searched, (and indeed none of the documents we've seen make it seem that the VX was ever searched (or even mentioned)). So if it was parked nearby (perhaps with a for sale sign on it), it is possible that Raven could have disposed of things by dropping them off at the VX and then permanently disposing of them at a later time. Perhaps as much later as the first/second week of May and as far away as Virginia.

Where WAS the VX that night???? Has LE ever accounted for its whereabouts and how it could have played into this crime? If it was parked miles away, then this possibility might be very far-fetched. But if it was parked around the corner, it might have been the perfect temporary solution for hiding the weapon.

But the date on that e-mail was definitely the same date as Janet's funeral and the time was 7:20 P.M. So were there times during that weekend when Raven might have been left on his own while people were attending to other things? Might he have taken a drive to "clear his head" or "reminisce" at a place that perhaps him and Janet had liked to go?

That's why I'm so interested in knowing if that e-mail about reduced price software was sent by THE Karyn Bolton or not. I guess I can understand staying on top of work with a laptop - bills unfortunately still need to be paid, even in times of great tragedy. But the date on that e-mail was definitely the same date as Janet's funeral and the time was 7:20 P.M. So were there times during that weekend when Raven might have been left on his own while people were attending to other things? Might he have taken a drive to "clear his head" or "reminisce" at a place that perhaps him and Janet had liked to go?
Well we know that raven and Karyn worked at the same computer company at one time. If Karyn deals with computers too, could she have been helping raven delete things off the laptop that would look suspicious? We know she set up the "send us money now" trust fund within hours of Janet's murder...she begged for money at the memorial service...she most likely hired the attorney for raven that was retained the following day after the murder...her immediate actions after finding out the her daughterinlaw was murdered are questionable to me and I would not dismiss the idea that she knows raven killed Janet and would help him delete info, or get rid of the laptop or murder weapon.

I'm thinking he would have been surrounded by family and friends during those days, but would have had time afterwards to go "exploring."
The Rave could have slipped away, he had plenty of people to babysit Kaiden (or actually take care of Kaiden) and he probably said he needed to get away and clear his head or needed some time alone.

Being gone 6 - 8 hours would be no biggie, Raven is kinda on the hyper side and people would relish the fact that he was out of their hair probably. I know I would. Heck I've gone shopping and been gone 8 hours during the day.

We also know he could have told different groups of people he was with another group of people, and nobody would ever check, if nobody really talked to the other group of people. We know he lies at a drop of a hat as it comes so easy to him.

Tacky is as Tacky does.

How long was the Durango in LE's custody? How long was Janet's car in the shop?

Raven may not have the Durango back yet, does anyone know when he got the Durango back?

Since Janet's car went into the shop the day she was Murdered, it obviously was repaired before the Services so Karyn & Jim had a safe car to use and they wouldn't have had to rent a car. Didn't Jim take the car back with him to Utah or buy the car off Raven or something like that?

I would have been way too uncomfortable and it would have caused me a lot of pain emotionally for me to use it.

Didn't Jim take the car back with him to Utah or buy the car off Raven or something like that?I thought I heard that Jim or someone co-signed for that car for Raven and Janet. Maybe they weren't making timely payments on it, and were getting pressure from the co-signer, and it was yet another thing that Raven was having trouble making good on. So he had to find a way to either pay for it or give it back. (Although I must say that it sounds as if Jim is too kind to put undue pressure on someone.)

ETA: You know, we've all been doing this so long, I honestly can't remember things from the beginning. I'm going to have to search the threads later because I'm at the point where I might be confusing cases.

terminatrixator
02-20-2006, 10:14 AM
I believe it is something like that, either took over payments or cosigned, I will try to find the information also, I know it's here somewhere.

I also think you are right on the Jim's character, from all accounts, everything I have heard about him, he seems like a nice guy, put in an awkward position because of his marriage to Karyn and her children that dance to a different beat. I feel for Jim and his children.

It's a shame though that he didn't have the kind of relationship with Raven that Raven needs though, a father-figure, that Raven could trust.

I would hope that if Jim knew all the facts, and knew that Raven committed this murder, he would try everything in his power, to help Raven tell the truth and face it and take responsibility, the way the Hacking family bonded together, and faced it head on.

I can't say the same thing about Karyn. If she knows the truth, and something in me thinks she does, I think her motto would be deny, deny, deny til the bitter end.

These are just my opinions and I'm sticking to them.

02-20-2006, 12:07 PM
Well how old was Raven when he and Jim first met? Many psychologists believe that your personality is completely formed by age 7. If Raven met Jim after that age, I don't know how much influence Jim would have had on him anyway. After age 7, I believe that YOU have to want to change your personality - it can't come from outside influences after that point. JMO.

I agree! This is a hugely important issue actually. (And one that I'm sure LE is on top of.) I mean it speaks directly to some of the discussions we've had of late regarding TOD "weirdness," etc., especially with regards to what time Raven got HOME from playing soccer. As we know, the 911 call was placed at 1058pm. And per the ME report, onset of injury was 1050pm.

So what time did Raven get home? How much time was "available" to him, etc.?

Again, I agree Term, these timing issues are critical to this case!

OriginalJerseyGirl
02-27-2006, 10:31 AM
Well, let's start with what we DO know.

1) According to LE's press release, Raven left home at 8:30 PM.
2) According to LE's press release, Raven played soccer in Morrisville.
3) It takes AT LEAST 20 minutes to drive from Ferrand Drive to Morrisville, maybe even more like 30 minutes.
4) If Raven left home at 8:30 and went directly to the game, he would have arrived between 8:50 and 9:00 PM.
5) In order for Raven to make a call from home at 10:58 PM, not even including the amount of time he ran around looking for a phone, he would have to have left the game no later than 10:38 but more likely 10:28. He would have had to come straight home.

So according to the timeline we have so far, Raven could have been at the game anytime between 8:50 and 10:38, (but more likely game time would be from 9:00 to 10:28). Keep in mind that this is if Raven went right to the game, came right home, and did NOT take time to do anything once he got home. Any time he spent looking for phones, giving blessings, etc., would take time away from that back end time.

Not much room there to play a game is there.Exactly. 9:00 to 10:28 - isn't that short for a soccer game? Not to mention the time that we'd have to start subtracting for the things he did once he got home? And for any stops that he might have made along the way - we still don't know if he brought the Gatorade from home, if he bought it on his way to or from the game, or if it was in the car from another time.

Today on the VX site, there was a post from a guy who said he saw Raven's VX in person and that it was nice and clean. Would Raven have left a used Gatorade bottle in his car? If not, then why did he on that night? Answers we probably can't know but interesting to think about.

(BTW, there was another guy who mentioned seeing Raven's VX at a Maryland meet so Raven did attend at least one VX meet.)

Seems to me that if Raven went to the soccer game in Morrisville, and if he in fact played, then no way did he play the whole game... And if he left the game early, then I bet you LE knows that. And WHY would he leave the game early? A weird feeling? Hmmm. Worried about what was going on at home? Worried about what was going to happen when he got home?

And let's not forget the Gatorade bottle LE took from the Durango. Did Raven take the Gatorade from home? Stop and buy it on his way to the soccer game? Stop and buy it on his way home from the game? Or, was it simply trash that had been in the Durango all along? Again, all things that could effect the timing issues, for sure.

This was a month or so after being confronted about the embezzlement at ES if I'm not mistaken. Looks like things were starting to get really rough around this time.

Note: On the same day that Raven listed the Ducati for sale, he also lowered the price he was asking for the VX. Seems he was getting more desparate for money. Isn't that around the same time he began to get free rent from his landlord? I remember him getting two months free from the landlord and an additional month paid for by the church. If I remember correctly, we determined the free rent months to be most likely February, March, and April. Another interesting note: Raven never did have to come up with rent for May because he moved out of the house after the murder.

As we've discussed before, it appears that the only indoor soccer complex in Morrisville is the Carolina Sportsplex. http://www.carolinasportsplex.com (http://www.carolinasportsplex.com/)


That said, I can't find online schedules, etc., for 2005. However, there are adult leagues that play soccer at the Carolina Sportsplex, and most seem to play on Tuesday and Wednesday. The following link is a .pdf file to the current (2006) schedules for adult soccer. You'll notice that the majority of the Tuesday night games are scheduled for three different times (there are three indoor soccer fields): 8:20pm, 9:10pm, and 10:00pm (there are a few games that are scheduled on Tuesdays at other times, a few at 8:00pm and some at 8:30pm).

http://www.carolinasportsplex.com/pdf/adult_soccer_schedules.pdf

IF those times held true for last season, the 2005 dates, then the earliest average game on a Tuesday was 8:20pm. So IF those times were the same last season, and Raven in fact left Ferrand at 8:30, any way you look at it, he was going to be late for the soccer game it would seem, unless he was intending to play in the 10:00pm game. And if a player arrived LATE for a game, that presumably was in progress, surely someone would have noticed that?

Just some more interesting timeframes to think about ......

Yep, you're right! He could have made the 9:10pm game, unless he made any stops along the way.

I gather the games must run concurrently, although the start times stagger for some reason.

OriginalJerseyGirl
02-27-2006, 11:20 AM
So assuming that the start times are the same as last year, Raven leaving at 8:30 would have been a good time to leave for a 9:10 game. He'd even have about ten minutes to spare once he got there. But the real question then would be - if the game started at 9:10, would it have been over before 10:30? And how much extra time do we need to take off of that end time to account for whatever Raven might have done on the way home or once he arrived at the house. We know that he kissed Kaiden. We hear that he ran around looking for phones. The possible Gatorade issue. Etcetera.

When did Janet and Raven first break up? Any ideas as to what this sham of a Valentine's Day was about? Maybe we should see what his posts were like prior to V's Day to see if we can find any indication.

Just a side note: doesn't it seem rather interesting that he's "so ashamed" about thinking of selling the vx, however, it doesn't seem there's an OUNCE of shame over the embezzlement? Not to mention shame over MURDERING HIS WIFE!

My ?? is the same as VehiX... But I think any gettaway would be nice at this point. Damn, I wish I could fly my VX up there... I heard one of the buttons deploys wings right?

I drove to pittsburg for new years, not a bad trip... I can do this. I don't have to have full size spare and CB, etc, etc right?
I've been out in the country gettin' dirty down here, but never to a meet.... I am still at about 90% right now...

Awww Man, NOT ME!!!!
Yeah, the Freakin' Accident Bug hit me. I am so pissed right now! I havne't been online in like forever and I am here to say that it happened over the weekend. I was backing out of a tight parking place and reversing to let someone in, I had three cars around me and was carefully trying to watch all three (can be a pain in the *** with the horrible rear view) and I freakin hit an illegally parked car. The good thing is it was illegally parked so I am not responsible for anything, the bad news is my bumper has a huge dent in it.

Do you know if I can pop it out? I bet it is going to cost an arm and a leg to replace. Other funny thing is, I was going to get the cladding sprayed with a liner next month along with a new Black paint job... now I gotta wait til I figure this ding out!!! I AM SO SAD!!!!

Honestly, I am usually so careful and I was not paying close enough attention, I know how "aware" of your surroundings you need to be in while driving the VX

I am posting pictures and the good news is, I still went wheeling after and kicked the trash out of my Jeep Wrangler. THe VX Rocks!!!!

I have heard comments about VX's being acceptional 4x4 vehicles although they don't have lockers... So, being the smart guy I am (hehehe) I was assuming that lockers is some type of breaking system or somethign that locks the hubs.... If we can't have that, will this new breaking system increase my ability to stop on a dime when 4x4ing and know that my VX is going to hold on whatever angle or technical maneuver I am working on?

Thanks guys

Anyway, this was in reference to the Valentine's weekend get-away? My interpretation is that Janet and Raven were broken up already by January 8th and Raven already had a lady friend that he wanted to take with him to the Valentine's meet? And Valentine's ended up being a sham? What caused it to be so? Did his girlfriend break up with him? And I apologize for this question but it has to be asked - is that when he found out that Janet was pregnant? What was it that bothered him so about that Valentine's Day?

Hadn't been online in forever but had to run right back to let all of the VX "family" know what had happened. :rolleyes:

Read: Please spare me the lectures - I only want to tell you what happened; I don't want to listen to your input. Tell me again how cool my VX is.

I doubt he went to that one though. The only meet he seems to have attended was one in Maryland. Other than that, he just continually makes promises to go but never follows through.

On January 8, 2004 he had to check with his "Lady Friend" to see if she was going with, which means Janet would have ALREADY be pregnant at this time because on October 17, 2004 Kaiden was born.

I'm in, arriving Friday day with a tent for two and my dog. I'll be staying through Sunday.

Attending:
me and a guest

Look forward to seeing you all there!

Well, SIX MONTHS later, on October 17, 2004 Kaiden was born.

My heart just breaks for all that Janet had to suffer because of "The Rave", his heartless, sick, twisted mind, and his narcissistic, sociopathic, psychopath ways.

I'm not sure if Janet was already pregnant by the time of that post in the beginning of January because I still don't understand the complicated calculation method they use based on last menstrual period then add three weeks and subtract five days and ... blah blah blah. I just don't know. I think it's possible either way.

However, clearly by March, Janet was pregnant. And Raven was speaking of attending a meet with a guest. I can't help but wonder when Raven found out about the pregnancy and how he felt about giving up that single lifestyle that he had just gotten back. Dating ... camping ... VX meets ... suddenly he had to give it all up AND take care of a baby? And then TWO babies?

Counting on a calander, Janet would have found out that she was pregnant on or around Valentines. Is that the "Sham" that the Rave refers to? If you husband weren't cheating and afraid of committment, I think that would be the most romantic valentines!

When did jager say he talked to (saw?) Raven after Kaiden was born? And said that he seemed even more upbeat than before? I believe it was after he lost his job.
JG, you've already proved beyond any doubt in my mind that jager was a sham. I think whomever was using that screen name realized what kind of mistakes they had made and ran far, far, away.
