    Interesting that this news is released/confirmed. Obviously the one omission is meant to give us a clue or allow one to read between the lines.

    Polygraphs are not admissible in a court of law. Passing or failing one, while salacious and gossipmonger-worthy, doesn't change the legal tactics from the lawyers' standpoint since they can't introduce the topic in a courtroom.

    Wow....another "un-named source" with no documentation that they are even associated with the case in any way. Also, the article takes the information from the KH e-mail which specifically does NOT imply that TH did not pass her's also.

    OK who is the "reliable source"??? And were is this source from; family, LE, other??

    We have have had so many sources saying stuff in this case but very few statements from LE on anything. It is so maddening!!!

    I'm sick of these "sources." To me, unless the source is named, these articles are all just rumor mongering.

    Often, unnamed 'sources' are people in LE who speak to specific reporters on a hush/hush off-the-record manner. I've seen this personally in a different case in my area where I learned some things from a local reporter that (obviously) came from LE, but that nugget of info wasn't ever published or mentioned.

    That doesn't mean that this is official and true info because we don't know who the source is...it could just as easily be a family member or intimate of the family in the case, as much as it could be a LE person.

    It's good to keep one's mind open in case the info turns out to be incorrect, but if it's being reported then I consider it one step beyond rumor mongering--since most news organizations are careful to check their sources, even though they don't disclose them.

    I was just thinking the same thing about sources, one article the last one I read, has source, sources, and source close to the investigation.
    The media has me suspicious about who and why they are leaking info.
    And I don't put much into LDT's ever since I learned that the Green River Killer had passed his. That just totally freaked me out.

    I completely agree. Yes, you need to look at the news organization that is reporting this. If they are a fairly respected outlet, then I would tend to believe their reporting. If a paper/news show runs with unreliable information regularly, they usually aren't around too long. (or they are tabloid types)

    I am not familiar enough with KGW to say whether they are a decent news source or not.
    I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it left.

    But didn't many of those state something like "sources inside the investigation"? This article doesn't state where this source was from. Maybe it is assumed that it was a source within LE but I wish they would say for certain.

    By the way does Oregon have anything like FL's Sunshine law or will we have to want for the trial to get any definite answers?
