    A very good question Blazeboy.

    Although I do not agree with Lou's intruder theory, and I believe he is prejudiced toward the Ramsey's, I think Lou does not want to be so blatant about his theory. He may not have written a book but he has been on t.v. citing his his intruder theory. I do believe Lou thinks the Ramsey's are not involved in JonBenet's murder. I think his religious beliefs defy that a "Christian" famlily could commit such a horrific crime. I am not questioning the Ramsey's are Christians, but even the most devout are not perfect.

    I don't think Smit can write a book if he can't name a suspect. He can only tell you who he thinks it isn't. I don't think he could physically write a book either as his command of the spoken language is less than choice. I'm beginning to think he was hired by Hunter as a ringer or ploy? I'm not sure of the word, but Smit was used. Hunter knew from the get go he was an old timer with inabilities.

    Lou is no saint and still wants to cash in, he's been reported to be working on some sort of software which can be more lucerative than a book.

    I would wager Smit is more honorable than those that made a decision to cash in on the murder of a child.

    Is it possible for someone to detail what Smit has told?
    Clearly he has discussed information already available in the press,but just what new info was leaked by him?

    Maybe when Smit and Keenan at last hone in on the owner of the "foreign" DNA that was found in JonBenet's underpants, Smit, with the help of the Ramseys' ghost writer, will describe the events that led to the person's capture, in a book titled Bus Chronicles: The Hunt for Sum Yung Gai.

    Lou Smit does not need to write a book. He has nothing left to tell that isn't public knowledge already.

    BUT

    Being the mouthpiece with his powerpoint presentation has brought him what money could not buy: Fame. Who heard of Lou Smit before the Ramsey case? Nobody! Now everyone knows his name and if he should choose, can charge a pretty penny for his consultations in the future now that he's retired.

    The Ramseys turned out to be an investment for him (if he so chooses) He could also use his fame to forward causes for his religion, church and anything else he decides on.

    No, he doesn't need a book with all the stress that comes with it. And...he has nothing left to dazzle anyone with regarding the Ramsey case
    This is my opinion only

    I basically agree with Popcorn and Show Me.

    But the reason I really think Smit hasn't written a book is because deep down he knows the Ramseys are involved. He doesn't want to believe it, but I think he does, and he can't bring himself to present that intruder theory in the permanent form of a book.

    The only thing Smit ever said that really got my attention was this: People say there was only four people in the house that day... What the case tells me is that there’s a fifth personality there. There’s a fifth personality that is a very brutal, vicious personality [who] killed JonBenet.

    Lou Smit Today Show Interview May 4, 2001

    IMO it is significant that he says "personality" and not "person"... and not once, but three times. Smit could be right about that. As others have suggested (BrotherMoon, for one) Patsy may have a "split" personality - a dissociative disorder... there could very well be a fifth personality just like Smit says.

    If it's okay for the Ramseys to do it, I'm sure Smit would have no problem rationalizing his own book.

    As Barbara points out, he has already cashed in anyway.
    The intruder is innocent! JMO

    Smit couldn't put his "theory" in writing - it would be laughable.

    Yeah, Lou, Jonbenet woke up in the middle of the night and ate pineapple from a tubberware in her bedroom - a tubberware with no trace of pineapple with the pineapple on the downstairs counter.

    Yeah, Lou, let's hear your incredible theory - not just bits and pieces of this and that....TIE IT TOGETHER, Smit.

    Not possible. No book.

    7 years later and still no intruder. I guess he's not the fox that everyone says he is. Actively investigating????????

    What is he doing?

    The evidence indicates that Smit has been given far more credit for solving homicides than is actually warranted. I have not yet found any proof that he had difficult homicides to investigate; rather, the homicides I have been able to research which took place while he was employed were rather easily solveable, generally within weeks or months of happening. For example, this is the sort of murder Smit has to his credit, as described by the Associated Press, August 17, 1982:

    The mother of a 17-year-old bride chased the bride's father through the house at the wedding reception, fired a rifle at him and accidentally killed her new son-in-law, police said yesterday.

    Simmons had been married at the Harris home about six hours.
    Marvin Simmons, 24, an Army private first class at nearby Fort Carson, was hit in the head by a bullet from the .22-caliber semi-automatic rifle.

    Shirley May Harris, 31, the bride's mother, was booked for investigation of homicide, authorities said.


    This is a no-brainer, would anyone disagree? There is no intruder involved, just a witnessed shooting which Smit got to place on his plaque as proof of his supposedly-superior detective skills. The Heather Dawn Church case was also not an example of skill on Smit's part; it was bad recordkeeping on the part of Colorado authorities which kept Heather's killer, Robert Browne, from being picked up right after the crime was committed, at a time when Smit was not employed and would not have been involved with the case. If the killer's fingerprints had been on file in Colorado, as they should have been after Browne was on parole from a crime he had committed in Louisiana, Smit would not even be a footnote in the Ramsey case.
