    Admin/Mod Note

    Thank you all for participating! This forum has a special dynamic - good sleuthers, intelligent discussions, though provoking opinions expressed ... it makes it enjoyable to read & moderate. We sincerely thank you for that!

    The last few days I've been disappointed to see a few exchanges begin to deteriorate - escalating from a lack of tolerance for differing opinions. Of course opinions are going to differ when a bunch of intelligent, independent thinkers have a discussion. That's a good thing, not a bad thing. I understand the passion but the purpose should not be to change anyone else's mind. Respect your fellow posters and make a conscious effort to be tolerant. Please note that passive-aggressive, snarky, personalized posts will not be tolerated and, beginning immediately, will result in a loss of posting privileges.

    Thanks all.

    is the 'we' in this invitation inferring that more than one person is going to 'come up with hypothetical answers'??

    other people apart and separate from the poster issuing the invitation?

    if so, may I enquire who the 'we' consists of?

    if the 'we' was a figure of speech, as in the Royal 'we' or the Editorial 'we' . .. or even the psychoanalytical 'we'.. then please distinguish.

    Every night the world is conducting field research on the killer's hypothetical explanations for feeling a rush of terror when a spouse gets up to pee.

    Every night 3 billion reasonable people know their spouse is peeing and don't kill them.

    It is obvious that the prevailing sentiment is "Presumption of guilt" and there may be lots of people with hypothetical "Nel Zingers"

    Those likely to propose a "Hypothetical OP answer" would be few

    How many red flags does one need before one sees that OP's story simply can not be true as he has stated it?

    The timeline is a pesky thing that shows his story is lacking and IMO full of lies.

    Then we also have the ear witnesses, the ballistics expert, witnesses that have witnessed OP's bad behavior in the past, the text messages, the eye witness that saw OP trot along upstairs instead of staying with his "beloved", etc.

    With all of the things that OP has to "explain away", I expect him to be on the witness stand for at least three days.

    Am I correct in the bedroom door was damaged from the exterior of the room?

    So I've checked and it is double doors to bedroom ie one can stay fixed one can open or both. So not so hard to break open really as the only thing holding doors together was bolt across centre. and with enough force would fling open if not secured at base or top of fixable door.

    Does anyone propose that this event may have started downstairs? Or again was the door damage a prior as Oscar had stated door was locked and if so it had to be locked from inside. if locked from inside it does not need to bashed open from outside, does it?

    Mark....thought I'd make everyone's weekend.
    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
