sorry I can't link it but it's a 2 part show on Leeza which can be found on youtube. It's great. One of the convicting jurors arguing with the Routiers. It also confirms that one of the boys wounds was so deep the knife went through into the floor below him (so sad). Barbara Davis is on too.
watching it now
it annoys me that Darin refers to his sons as "the baby" and "that boy"
and even when he does identify his son by name, it's:
"devon, the oldest one" (not "my oldest son, my oldest boy, but the ...")

ugh, Denial runs deep
that juror is one brave lady - at least someone spoke up for the boys since their own family wouldn't
ok, I had to stop watching at about 30 min. into the first part when they started talking about Devon trying to walk behind his mother with 6 mortal wounds in his back
Cami, if you watch the interview Leeza asks about if the wounds really went so deep and to go through to the floor and darin says that's true. its in the very beginning
also i recall reading in the transcripts and in barbara davis' book about the carpet being peiced and the knife mark being into the hard surface underneath. and the family confirmed it on the show. weird
The statement about the knife piercing the carpet and on thru to the floor is incorrect. Davis made a mistake in her book. Her family and Darin are also not truthful. (So what else is new?) If you can give a pointer to the place in the transcript that shows this, I'll be happy to read it.
crow, if you goggle darlie routier and leeza gibbons the full show will come up. it's actually only about 5 minutes (or less) into the show. Leeza asked the family if it was true that the penetrating wounds were so deep, that the one child was stabbed so violently that there was a knife mark on the floor beneath him and Darin and Mama Darlie nodded and said yes. I've read the autopsy report and find it so odd that the family doesn't even know what's fact or fiction!
The autopsy photo proves it..there is no wound to Devon's back. The knife did not go through him and into the floor.
Please click the link and go the "galleries." The photos of the boys dead bodies are very graphic so be warned but it confirms there was no knife going through the body into the floor.
As well, I own MTJD and the crime scene photos are in that book, both boys, and Chris Brown sarcastically confirms there was no knife through any body into the floor.
With all due respect Mama Darlie lies like a rug. She's sitting on Leeza saying she was in the house the night the cops were in there investigating. She's full of it, she would not be allowed into a crime scene under full investigation..she might have been escorted up the stairs to get some clothes for Drake, but that's about it.
All of them lie all the time it's what they do. They are holding up Darlie and Darin as some super couple when the truth is, they had been fighting over money for months, the business was failing, they being threatened with foreclosure on their home, they were in credit card debt up to their eyeballs with no means to repay it, they owed $10,000 to the IRS. I don't live in the US but I am quite sure the IRS is not waiting for it's money, they were hounding them too. The marriage was in the toilet, they had a huge fight that night. I feel quite sure what ever happened between them during this huge fight is the motive for the murders..they are revenge on Darin. It was the last terrible straw in an extended battle between the two of them.

I thought it was in Patricia Springer's book, Flesh and Blood? It's Patricia Springer who keeps it going. I saw her on Deadly Women last year still claiming the knife went through Devon and into the floor.
I think Darin is a vile, disgusting creep but he had no hand in the murder of his boys.
I saw him telling an reporter "why was I targeted" "because I have the nicest house on the street" "because I have the prettiest wife on the street"
God forbid this baby killing intruder wouldn't dare be caught in a mobile home, he liked the finer things in life eh? He most likely owned a ton of jewellry so he bypassed Darlie's gold jewellery sitting right out next to her wallet with cash in it and just honed in on two innocent sleeping babies.
Give me a break Darin, you vile disgusting creep,you're children are dead and all you care about is your big house and your pretty wife.
I wonder why Part 3 is nowhere to be found?
I'm suspicious that Part 3 contains either a detective or a CSI who lays out the evidence against Darlie.
And the reason I am suspicious is due to the fact that you can watch all these programs on her website except for Medical Detectives and True Crime Scene.
Why, because those two programs contain forensic evidence proving she is the one with the knife in her hand.
I wasn't trying to argue and say that the knife DID go through to the floor. I did, however think that was true for years because I read it in Davis' book. I have seen the graphic photos and read the autopsy reports and yes, it's quite clear that the knife did not go through to the floor. I find it bizarre (not even a strong enough word) that the family sits on a TV show saying that the knife did go through to the floor. Clearly they are privy to medical examiner reports!! For me it just lends to my opinion that Darin and Mama Darlie will do/say anything without researching it themselves! They are so idiotic because saying that the wound to the child DID go through to the floor makes D seem more guilty since her wounds weren't savage. I just think that Devin and Damons family should know what's true and what's not!
