    Where Are You From??

    When asking MurriFlower where she was from, I ha an idea. The world is a huge place. I was wondering where people were from and if their location influenced their feelings on the Ramsey case.


    I'll start. I'm recently transplanted to TX. I think I am more influenced in my opinion from when I first heard of the case in CA. Most people I know there had many reasons for believing the R's were guilty.

    Next.... Be as generalized or specific as you would like. Thank you!

    I am from NE Georgia. We discussed this at work for months, most thought one of the R's did it, some thought a porn ring involvement which included the parents. When Lou Smit's theory came out in the movie we all felt bad that we thought it was the Ramsey's. Then we looked at the Ramsey's actions after JB's death and started leaning back to the R's and that is where the people I still talk to about the case are at. When Patsy passed away coverage on one of the Atlanta Stations included a friend saying she was there at the end and Patsy looked at her and said some things you just can't take back, and then slipped in a coma and died shortly afterwards. From that moment on I firmly believed Patsy did it (accidentally) and the great cover up followed. My friends and I all wish it could be an intruder but we don't think it is.

    Born in Memphis. I've lived in Baton Rouge, LA; Newport, RI; Camp LeJeune, NC; Key West and Tallahassee, FL; Natchez, MS; several other towns in MS; Louisville and Hopkinsville, KY; LA, CA. Presently live in AR (I've lived in two towns in AR) and will be moving to TX mid-2011. And if I don't have a totally screwed-up accent, no one does!

    My_Tee, your funny...

    I was born in Cali, dad (if you want to call him that) was in the Navy. Moved to Fla, met my hubby and spent the last 19 years in Louisiana.
    There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go.

    I was born in south central PA moved to Memphis, Tn when I was 18 and back to PA when I was 46 (seven years ago). Sometimes wished I had stayed in the south, not Memphis but somewhere down south.

    Wow, thank you everyone!! I hope more people post!! IIt is interesting to see how small our country is as well as how diverse. There is such a difference between North, South, East and West Coasts. And that is just in the US!!

    My Tee Mouse, I can imagine you do have quite a unique accent!! I say Californians and West Coasters are the only ones without any accent!

    When I was in FL last month, we had lunch in a restaurant. A patron at a table next to mine said, "I'd like sweet tea please." the waitress looked at her and said, "Honey, you're not in the South anymore, this is Florida. You're going to have to add sugar to your own tea."

    lol

    Hahaha! My son has a good friend who is originally from Ohio but lived in Memphis for about five years. When he moved back to Ohio, he called and fussed that he couldn't get sweet tea, but out of habit he'd still ask for it. All he got for his trouble was weird looks.

    I hope other folks post too. It's nice having a mental picture of the "person behind the mask," so to speak. I know we have profiles that could be filled out, but most people here don't seem to do that. Maybe this thread will coax some into opening up a little.

    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    I'm from the Tri-State area in the NorthEast United States. In a lot of ways, my area is a lot like Boulder. A lot of the same atmosphere.
    I'm as mad as HELL and I'm NOT gonna take it anymore!.

    Born and raised in South Carolina, my husband went into the Air Force, and we moved to Tampa, Florida. Moved back to SC after his four years were up, and then we moved to Montana after he got a job as a Federal Agent...and then moved BACK to South Carolina. I MISS Montana though, and would move back there in a heartbeat. My dad lives here in SC, and his health isn't very good. That is the only reason that I am glad that we are here again.

    Born and bred and currently residing Manhattan-ite. (I'm 30 years old.) I always thought the Ramseys were guilty - although I must admit, when I first heard about this case my first instinct was that they were guilty before I knew all the facts of the case. I had and have never known people like the Ramseys. The child beauty pageant stuff just always really freaked me out, I always thought that was an incredibly creepy thing, to sex up your practically toddler daughter. It was also clear to me from the start that Patsy had some pretty serious mental health issues. Let's just say it couldn't have been easy being one of her children. Ultimately the Ramseys always struck me as the kind of people whose primary goal is creating a 'facade' of the 'perfect family', when in reality there was probably lots of creepy stuff going on behind the doors of that home.
