As per NG of 2010.11.30, EB failed three key questions in an early LDT:
- Did you hurt Zahra?
- Do you know who hurt Zahra?
- Do you know where she is?

numerous witneses claim she was abusive to Z - question 1 = fail. No big surprise.
She was one who hurt Z and may have given access to others who also did - question 2 = fail
By her own admission was part of disposing Z - question 3 = fail

Show me the evidence, give me the facts.
* Did you hurt Zahra
* Do you know if anyone has done harm to that child
* Do you know who wrote the ransom note

People seldom do what they believe in. They do what is convenient, then repent. ~Bob Dylan
That being said, IMO: Assuming they were asked to EB in the order listed, the three questions form a recessive chain... from
did YOU hurt ZAHRA (very personal and direct--did YOU/EB hurt ZAHRA)
do YOU know if anyone has done harm to THAT CHILD (backs away from "you" hurting "zahra"--objectifies "anyone" and "that child")
do YOU know WHO WROTE THE RANSOM NOTE (presumably this would come as an unexpected follow-up to the previous question; we know EB fumbled on this one, as she fessed up to writing the note.)
Would love to hear from verified folks who have any experience administering LDTs!
You can hold back from the suffering of the world. You have free permission to do so and it is in accordance with your nature.
But perhaps this very holding back is the one suffering you could have avoided.
Be not simply good. Be good for something.
I assume and maybe im wrong. It looks like she took the LDT shortly after being arrested and before admitting to the RN. Id sure like to see the rest of the questions and the results. JMO

After reading Group 4 of the search warrants from HDR, Statement of Probable Cause, attachment 2, page 5 of 6, I see that EB was given the polygraph on Oct. 09.
Interesting that nothing has been said on whether AB was deceptive
"On 10/11/2010, Elisa Baker admitted to fabricating the ransom note that was left on the Tahoe, stating it was due to her anger with Mark Coffey."
