    I dont use Wiki at all...the teachers at school have told their students NOT to use it when researching papers.

    The story I posted was on an actual news site. You can google Darlie Routier DNA Test and find several other news affiliates that ran the same story. Unlike Wiki - they check their sources prior to release (normally).

    We knew the longer her appeals went on with no revelations, the more she'd fade into the background.

    I predict that, unless testing comes back with startling revelations, she will quietly be executed within the next 5 years.
    bbm,
    I just went there and she is under notorious murders/women who kill (or something about women)

    so it would seems she is still under notorious (just subcategorized under women)

    Anybody know for sure what is happening?
    Darlie did receive the right for more testing by the Federal judge who sent it back to the State court.

    Her defense is trying to raise money for the testing that wasn't allowed at the state level. However, the chances of that happening are slim to none considering the amount of money they need.

    I'm sure the documents are on her website www.fordarlieroutier.org

    I wouldn't trust the Crime Library to tell anything close to the truth.

    I don't think it should be. WS is a great community that will continue to discuss cases, long after they are "resolved". Just because one person thinks it should be closed does not mean it should be. I am not attacking the poster , but the post. Such posts IMO should be made only after thoroughly reading through the site and becoming familiar with how things are done. Again MOO
    Umm, lack of interest?

    Yes, closed case sections stay open but they also receive regular traffic. That's what justifies them remaining open.

    Here? Not so much.

    There's tons of interest in this case but it's mostly on Facebook. Not so much on these type of forums.

    Yes I was going to say that. I'm very interested in it! I might not post but I read a lot.

    I think until something happens- ie: firm evidence of DNA in her favour (or against) or an exceution date it may seem to be quiet but I would be suprised if it's not people's minds now and again.

    It's still a case that people are discussing 16 years later and Darlie still claims innocence.

    Eventually something will have to give- she canít sit on death row forever and she wonít in Texas, thats for sure. I would hate it if these threads were closed.

    No, I'm sorry I don't. I don't believe they will give her much time after the court ordered dna tests are completed but that's just speculation.

    Not too familiar with the details of the investigation, though I know there was criticism about the processing of the crime scene. Been any more forensic processing? Any other testing after 1996?

    Darlies camp is still trying to raise more money for DNA testing. Welcome to websleuths.

    The only criticism of the processing of the crime scene comes from Darlie supporters.

    In fact, this case is taught as a model of an investigation.

    Annie kitty, LOve you right back dear. You keep smiling too.....

    April 13 hearing, she won the right to test. It's on her website. As I said, I don't think she will ever be executed but commuted.
