    And you know the old saying...there ARE no coincidences.
    It would need to be substantiated before I'd give much credence to it. It sounds like something a tabloid would come up with. As I suggested before, even if it was true, then it's possible LHP could have purchased the items, and as she is one of my prime suspects, that's wouldn't surprise me much.

    No, you are right about coincidences I think.

    But how would she have gotten the R credit card? Then there is the matter of matching the signature. It wasn't made up by a tabloid (the receipt). That was reported by LE.
    THIS time, we get it RIGHT!

    Well, I expect if it was signed by someone then the LE would know which of the R's bought it wouldn't they? Unless LHP was good at signing PR's name. They could get their 'handwriting experts' to take a look at it and see if it was forged. Otherwise did they use pins back then?

    Then they would need to establish exactly who sold it and if that person could recall who it was and what was purchased. Having a receipt for an amount without details doesn't tell very much does it?

    BTW, LHP reckoned the cord was the same as was tied around a box in the wine cellar and suggested that it was taken off the box and used on JBR. Funny then that they didn't find the rest of the roll of cord in the house. Coincidences, coincidences........

    22 TOM HANEY: Well, there is a -- I think maybe
    23 a quick little look at the tray with some brushes in it
    24 in a minute. In that tray of brushes what would you
    25 have had in there?
    0345
    1 PATSY RAMSEY: Paint and brushes and
    2 probably -- I don't know. I don't know exactly what
    3 was in there. Supplies, you know, paint supplies.
    4 TOM HANEY: What kind of painting were you
    5 doing? What kind of paint would you have had in there?
    6 PATSY RAMSEY: Well, oil or acrylic. I
    7 signed up for a class where you could use both, and I
    8 started out using oil and it got over my car, so I
    9 switched to acrylic, but there was a mishmash in there.
    10 TOM HANEY: Okay. Out of the brushes you
    11 would have had in there, would you have had any that
    12 were broken or damaged or would you --
    13 PATSY RAMSEY: No, they were all pretty new.
    14 TOM HANEY: Okay. So any broken or damaged
    15 ones?
    16 PATSY RAMSEY: Throw it away.
    17 TOM HANEY: So --
    18 TRIP DEMUTH: Take a minute, Patsy, and think
    19 about the paint tree. Were there any broken paint
    20 brushes that you recall?
    21 PATSY RAMSEY: No, not that I recall. They
    22 were all pretty new when -- they had a list of things
    23 to buy for the class.
    24 TRIP DEMUTH: Okay.
    25 TOM HANEY: Did you follow their advice?
    0346
    1 Sometimes, you know, you get the list from school and
    2 you think do you need all of this.
    3 PATSY RAMSEY: Well, pretty close, yeah.
    4 TOM HANEY: What is available. Do you recall
    5 where you would have made the purchase before this?
    6 PATSY RAMSEY: Art Hardware in Boulder.

    7 TOM HANEY: Is that on Broadway?
    8 PATSY RAMSEY: On Broadway.

    I am sure they DO know whose signature is on it. As for the cord, if it was taken off a box in the wineceller as LHP suggests (possibly she saw the box and cord there at some point- she said she took Christmas decorations out of that room) then the cord belongs to the house after all. I doubt an intruder would sneak in and tie a cord around a box for future use in strangling JB.
    THIS time, we get it RIGHT!

    No, you missed my point. If what LHP said was true, then the remainder of the cord would have been in the house. Even if RDI, there would be no reason to hide/dispose of the rest of the cord. Get it?

    Well the way I see it, if RDI they'd have good reason to get rid of the rest of the cord, if for no other reason than to eliminate the possibility of the garrote being sourced to something that came from the home. Cord and tape are common household items. Their absence in the home is a red flag to me, in the same way was the wiped down flashlight batteries (NOT just the flashlight, because if it was the murder weapon, IDI would never remove the batteries and wipe them down because IDI would not have handled the batteries. But RDI had to wipe the batteries as well as the flashlight so they could say it didn't belong to them- which they did, eventually admitting they had one "just like it").

    No they had no reason to get rid of the remainder of the cord. Any IDI could have found it tied around a box in the wine cellar and used it. Makes no sense.

    Not having items in the home is no indication of the R's guilt. Similarly they did not have any of that kind of tape (PR said she only bought clear tape). Again, (if RDI) it could have just been left in the basement and that would have made more sense to LE.

    The fact that neither were sourced in the house means that the IDI brought them and took them away again.

    The idea of the R's sending BR off with them that morning is an RDI 'imaginative' way to explain their absence in the house and totally unnecessary in 'covering their tracks'. As you said, they are common items and it would not be unusual to find them there. However, the stick used in the garrotte has been accepted by RDI as PR's. I'm still doubtful about this, I think IDI might have brought that too, as it looks too old and damaged to have been bought by PR only 'last fall'. What is that - just months before at the most? Take another look at the pictures on ACR.

    Now to the flashlight, I've not found a reliable source for the batteries having been 'wiped of prints', nor was there any evidence that we know of it having been used for the bash (fingerprints, fiber, hair, DNA). PR did not have to 'admit' as you put it, to owning it, as it was not her item but a gift to JR from JAR and appeared only in a not too clear photograph shown to her, so she said he had one 'like it'. Again probably a common household item and similar/same as Police issue and could have even been left there by a BPD following a search.

    returning from the sea

    Some flashlights come with batteries installed at the factory, assembled by line workers who wear gloves, I believe.

    As the flashlight had been wiped down, there would of course be no prints, hair, fiber, etc. on it. I wonder if today's analysis methods would be able to get something useful off that flashlight, even if it was wiped down.

    Aside from being a "blunt instrument", is there any evidence at all that it had been used in the head bash? ?

    Not the same factory workers who make underwear, as they apparently drop their DNA everywhere LOL

    How so? We're supposed to believe that this intruder came into the house TOTALLY unprepared?

    Noooooo!

    There's that old 'language barrier' again.

    I'll rephrase it: Finding the tape and cord in the house would have supported RDI.

    I believe the IDI brought everything needed (perhaps even including the stick).

    Looks that way!

    That's what I'm saying! That's why it makes sense to ditch them, provided there was any left over to ditch.

    I believe the IDI brought everything needed (perhaps even including the stick).
    Then why did you say, and I quote, No they had no reason to get rid of the remainder of the cord. Any IDI could have found it tied around a box in the wine cellar and used it. Makes no sense.
