    I definitely believe they brought a lot of stress on themselves. They were only in that house for roughly 3 years. They just went crazy with the money and Darin couldn't earn it fast enough. I never believed that the kid's life insurance was a motive, but I'd bet $ that if the police had bought her intruder story, she would've filed on her homeowners insurance and probably gotten a settlement. IMO

    This is just a repost, did not display Crow Ascending's original quote correctly. Sorry.

    Hi..i havent really been following this story but a friend of m ine has been directed to this case recently and thinks Darlie is innocent because of the following points. I just wanted to know if you could tell me if his points are right or wherever he got information from is wrong? i thought you guys would be the best folk to ask. Thanks

    1. He says there were unexplained finger prints on the coffee table. Is that correct or not?

    2. He says apparently there was blood on her nightshirt that wasnt hers? and that there were injuries she had that she couldnt do to herself? And apparently there was blood on a nightshirt she supposedly wasnt wearing that n ight?

    3. And thirdly why was the sock dumped in the road?

    For the record personally I think shes guilty
    Thanks for any answers

    The sock in the alley could have been an afterthought, or even some premeditated way to try and explain why no fingerprints of the intruder were on the knife. Maybe as if he'd wiped them off with the sock or put it over his hand. I don't believe that Darlie ever mentioned the intruder's hands or if she claims he was wearing gloves or not? However, she claimed to 911 that if she hadn't picked up the knife they might could have gotten prints. She knew there were no prints on the knife.

    Also, her statement heard on 911 where she says "someone came in here and did this, DARIN" was chilling, and as if he had said something about doubting her story.

    the question is, did Darin ever question Darlie's lack of helping her own children, whether it was during or afterwards. I could see him not questioning during all this due to the chaos. But what about afterwards.

    What about Darlie just sitting there on the phone all that time talking to 911, doing nothing, walking around cleaning up with wet towels ???

    I mean, since when were wet towels used to stop bleeding??? What adult, especially a mother with three small children, doesn't know better than that? I have never even heard of that.

    Which, in the end tells me there are other reasons for Darlie to be wetting towels.....

    She wasn't treating the children with those wet towels. There was no water anywhere, no dilution of the blood or the dna on her nightshirt, no wet towel on Damon's back and no wet towel was used on Devon. She was trying to clean up blood with those towels.

    Darin who knows first aid would never have put a wet towel on the children. Wet towels don't stop bleeding, only pressure on the wounds. She knew enough to hold a dry towel to her own neck though didn't she? She wasn't going to try and save the children.

    1. There is a partial bloody print on the coffee table. The print cannot identify anyone but it can be used to exclude. Darlie has not been excluded as the leaver of this print.

    2. That is absolutely not true. There is no unsourced blood anywhere especially on her nightshirt. Her boys blood is on the nightshirt in cast-off patterns. NOr is there blood on a nightshirt she wasn't wearing.

    3. No one knows why the sock was put in the alley except Darlie and maybe Darin.

    Actually, there were five stains on the sock. Three are pure Devon, and two are Devon/Damon mix. Darlie's dna is in the toe of the sock from shed skin cells.

    The sock tells me that Devon's blood mingled with Damon's causing the two mixed stains. This proves to me that the same knife was used to kill both boys.

    MOO

    I wondered about premeditation also. To think up running down an alley before bleeding from the neck is not likely on the spur of the moment. Probably a way to explain lack of intruder fingerprints on the knife.

    Sorry for the confusion, I didn't intend to make it sound like she was actually treating the children with wet towels, but IIRC that's what she claimed to have been doing. The point I intended to make was how unbelievable and ridiculous it was to make such a claim, and for her to actually think it would be believable. It just shows not only how narcissistic, but how dumb she is as well, imo.

    When my son got mauled by a dog I put wet rags on his head. Thank God no one thought I was a dog... I could be sitting in jail right now.

    I cant quite recall the last time I heard of a dog going to jail, LOL. What a terrible thing for your son to go through , I hope he came through it ok.

    With all due respect, the treatment of that type of injury, assuming it was bites, would not be comparable to the treatment of deep stab wounds. In the latter, firm, steady pressure applied to the wound would be required to stop the bleeding. "Wet" just isn't in the equation, unless one is cleaning, instead of trying to stop the bleeding. In fact cleaning should be the farthest thing from the rescuers mind at that point, all they should be concerned with is stopping or slowing down the bleeding with the goal being to save the victim's life. Not only is this standard protocol, it is very common knowledge in our society, even among laymen, and AFAIK that would include Darlie.

    I have to assume you did what was appropriate in your sons situation, which indicates to me that your sons wounds from dog bites would have been considered shallow in comparison to the deep, vital organ penetrating wounds that were inflicted on Damon and Devon.

    Another point, just think about all the time it took for Darlie to bother wetting towels, repeatedly IIRC, compared to the time it would have taken for her to just get the dry towels and press them and hold them on Damon's wounds. It's pretty obvious to me that she was not only cleaning but wasting precious time, just waiting for her son to die.

    I've never gotten clear idea of whether wet towels with staunched blood were actually found?
