I have listened to it over 50 times and I still don't hear it.
I was wondering exactly how many different versions there are of the 911 call? Also I would like to know if any of you have been able to hear Darin say "put the knife down Darlie" or "Darlie give me the knife." I have listened to it and still can't make out where he says it. I can't make out half of what Darlie was saying because of all the feedback. If you did hear Darin say something like that can you tell me at what point of the call he says it?
I have listened to it over 50 times and I still don't hear it.
Jennifer I was close to posting a very similar question. The only copy I can find of the audio is on Darlie's page. That does NOT seem to be the version I remember hearing! I know I have heard the 'Damon Damon Damon' before, and more, if I recall correctly, more than what is heard on that copy.
Is it just me or does this recording sound altered in some way, like she is louder, therefore making anything in the background impossible to hear?
Or have I just been reading about others hearing things in the tape for so long that I now I believe Ive heard them too? I dont think so. Ive heard another version. And I cant seem to find it.
Anyone care to elaborate on what theyve heard or hear on Darlies page version? Where is the 'didnt do anything I promise' part supposed to be?
I want to hear that too Jennifer! Anyone?
Thanks in advance xoxo
If you go to YouTube and watch Shonya Kay's videos.....you will here her say "I promise" on the call.
There are 11 parts to this. I can get you the times of the 911 call where we hear her saying those things. I don't know which video it is in, I can't remember. But I will come back tomorrow and give you the part no. and the times where you can hear what she's saying.
Here you go Ladies:
Once you click on the link for the video, just scroll down to the comment section and you'll see little "time links" to click on. There are several of them and if you click on each one, it will take you right to each spot. It makes it much easier to hear what's being said.
Thank you so very much Cami for posting these.
It's really worth it to watch all 11. Shonya Kay lays out everything. It's the best I've seen on this case as yet.
So do a search for "the devon and damon routier story" and up they come.
I just finished watching the rest of the videos. They played Gangstas Paradise at the funeral? WTF? That's worse than the silly string! Not to mention that your child is stabbed to death, yet you bury a knife with them? A little twisted.
It's like these people have no concept of what normal behavior is. They had to turn everything into a big production from the choice of music for the funeral to inviting the press to tape it all. Yet, they still can't figure out why people are repulsed by their behavior.
Then she says "there's nothing touched!, there's nothing touched!"... which is another very strange thing to say while watching her babies die, not to mention how could she possibly have known that her alleged 'intruder' hadn't touched anything.
It's at about 5:21 and 5:22 of Part 4.
I didn't even know this was on youtube. Great work on the part of shonyakay. Thank you so much for posting this, cami.
Shonyakay posted a comment below the youtube video Part 4, that at 1:17 it almost sounds like Darlie says "Damon, I'm sorry". I do hear something that could be that, or maybe "baby, I'm sorry". Does anyone else hear that? TIA
The WORST part of the 911 call is - Damon is alive and listening to it. Hearing her scream 'They are dead' over and over when he wasn't yet. Omg its one of the most heartbreaking aspects of the case.
Even if she was innocent, which I don't believe, laying there listening to her scream who would DO this. I wonder what his thoughts were, hearing her on the phone saying this!?
I know, I know no one reacts the same. But I can say, I have been in a life or death situation where I had to dial 911 for myself. I gave my name, address, and the problem (heart attack) and got the #$@% because I had some life saving to do...I know they wanted to keep me on the phone but I knew I didnt have the oxygen to spare so I spent it trying to save myself, aspirin, etc. Not wailing into the phone, Why is this happening to me?
And if it had been my child, the phone would have been laying on the floor cause BOTH hands would be on my child, I mean really , what the heck was she hanging on the phone for??? Especially once she gets to the part where she is saying, 'I just got to sit here forever'....no she didnt, they were on the way and had all the info. That phone was just an excuse to keep from helping Damon. Surprised she didnt start talking about the weather.
That version differs, IMO, to the one on Darlie's site. The Shonakay videos are excellent.
FINALLY I heard " I promise "
Thanks Cami, for the links!
Darin didn't believe her, he suspects she did it and it's all on that call.
All of his photos he looks so sad it makes me cry. Why? What was going on Damon, oh if only we knew. It just breaks my heart.
They would have had to pry my son out of my arms, no way would I be spending five minutes on the 911 call.
A forensic examiner of the 911 call said that Darlie moved briskly between at least 3 rooms during the call which contradicted her statement to the police. Btw, the best TV show about this case is Forensic Files's "Invisible Intruder".
I listened to it for the first time tonight. It's staged IMHO. I've had to phone for an ambulance before when my daughter had a nut reaction and went into anaphylactic shock, at aged 5. I thought she was really dying. Yes I was hysterical, but it was all about my daughter on that call, I didn't think of one other thing. I didn't worry that it was me who had mistakenly brung nuts into the house, I didn't worry about what people would think, I just wanted the ambulance there, and that my daughter would be saved. No way could I be conversing with my husband, or talking about knives I'd picked up, or if something had been knocked over. I was focused solely on her. That sounds like an act by Darlie.
IMO, one of the most telling aspects on the 911 call is that she, NOT ONCE, mentions the baby. She is just about prompted to think of the baby by the operator in two instances. Once being when the operator asks her if anybody else is in the house with her, she replies that her husband just came downstairs and that he is helping her. And then when the operator asks how many children, she replies, twice, there's two of them. BUT, she thinks of fingerprints, that they have to find out who it was, and that nothing is touched! She even yells for a neighbor, but doesn't bolt up the stairs to check the baby. It is just so telling that she knew the baby was fine.
Steel, your completely right! She didn't once mention Drake. Wouldn't she be worried about him?
Didn't Darin go upstairs at one point to check on him, or was that after the police had already arrived?
Oh, the videos have been removed from you tube.
