    Alternate Theories

    I think most people pretty much agree on what they think happened, other than some of the details. This is a place to bring up other options. I would hope that any disagreements about different parts of the ideas would be discussed in a thread about that subject if one exists. Thanks

    Okey, dokey.....alternative theories here ya' go:

    Perhaps the toddler wasn't his and it really was LH's idea to have a baby in the first place----RH had low T and the infertility issue was taking it's toll on LH so she has an affair just to get preggers and maybe RH resented this very much??? Maybe this really bothered RH?

    On that same note, maybe LH wanted the whole marriage thing all along & coaxed RH into it from the beginning?

    Maybe RH has started using recreational drugs lately?

    Maybe RH's mother will come out with all of the psychopathic moments she remembers about her son throughout the years?

    .....remember, all just alternative thoughts and notions.......


    rip CH....you deserved so much better.

    Something totally different has been going through my head today, and I've finally decide it might have some merit so I should share it.

    I've been wondering if they were trying to find ways to save money, and decided to see if they could cut daycare costs if they only brought CH in part time instead of full time. If he brought him to work with him and left him in the car, then she picked him up a couple hours later, she could drop him off at daycare on days she had appointments or take him home on days she didn't. If he left him there at 9:30 that day, maybe she was supposed to pick him up by 11:00 just to see how he'd handle a short period of time out there alone.

    She may have gotten busier than expected and forgot, or maybe they got the days mixed up and she thought they were going to try on a different day. If she was with clients, it would make sense to turn her phone off, and she may not have gotten the message about picking him up until just before they talked at 4:04. He may have really bought the light bulbs innocently and been shocked to see CH in there dead. Their odd behavior that day and in court could be that they were in shock, feeling guilty and had no idea how to handle it.

    I just have a hard time seeing such seemingly loving parents change so suddenly and killing the child they had loved in cold blood. It would still make him guilty, but because he left him there on purpose even if he hadn't meant to kill him. Hope I made this clear enough, I haven't figured out all of the details yet.

    As a parent with a child in a daycare/preschool center, what comes to mind is the cost -- it's cost-prohibitive to "save the spot" for your child and only send them part-time... for us, it was a $20/week savings to go from full-time to part-time... roughly $80/mo was not worth it.

    I know all centers operate differently, but fwiw, ours is just one branch of a national conglomerate.

    But great minds think alike! Several posters have explored the possibility that they used the car as a "babysitter." It's still possible, but what money & how much it would have saved is totally up in the air, IMO.
    HOPING I CAN HELP
    but, what if .... ?

    Okay....some more "alternative" theories:

    Maybe little CH was beginning to show signs of autism or asperger's and the parents couldn't handle anything less than what they deemed "perfection" in their minds----all of course due to bizarre egos, psychopathy, weird psychosocial constraints, or from a cost analysis perspective? Remember, these parents are weird so anything is possible. It's almost as if they could justify something like this---> get rid of our imperfect son & it doesn't matter 'cause we'll have another one.....LH even said things to that effect at the funeral (RH has been and will be a good father down the road, etc etc).

    Also, I truly believe that RH thinks he is very handsome and desireable which is another super oddity.

    all moo.....

    Especially because JRH possibly has signs of ADHD or ASD. He is unfocused, self-centered and immature. And current research supports ASD and ADHD being hereditary. So if [modsnip] JRH thought his son was like him, he might have decided to rid himself of the "problem". Which is very porcine behavior. He is vomit-inducing.

    I'm not sure if this is a alternate theory but here it goes: I just simply think JRH realized that Cooper was going to be a "kill joy" on to his social life; I don't think he realized how hard it was going to be


    This post is my opinion only, and is subject to making me look totally confused

    HEY! Your attention please! This is not the mental health thread. This thread is for discussing alternative theories of what happened.

    If you don't have an alternative theory - then move along.

    Please stay on topic here.

    Thanks,

    Salem

    I'm not sure what my opinion is on this, but I had stated in thread 13 that RH reminds me of Mark Hacking. He made himself sound important - had an MBA, did "police" work, works for a fortune "50" company, is getting a raise and a promotion, is looking to buy a 4 br house, etc.

    Since he recently took over the finances, I'm guessing he had something to hide from LH. Was he charging on porn sites, or using an escort service, or buying gifts for his "girls"? There must be a reason he felt the need to take over the financial decisions.

    He is starting to see that he has a wife and a son who are holding him back from the life he wants. The young girls seem way more fun than family life. He thinks he's come up with a fool-proof way to get rid of his son, be the injured party, and actually make money. He knew the funeral would be paid for by HD. No more child care costs, and let's face it, kids are not cheap! He then can pocket the life insurance and move towards the life he wanted.

    Here's where I get confused, because I think LH was involved. But I really do think RH planned on getting rid of LH also. I'm sure it would have been a "suicide" since "she missed CH so much and didn't want to live without him" - and everyone would have felt horrible for RH because of the tragedy that had struck him. Again, he collects life insurance - people help him out because he is grieving so terribly......

    He has his college boy life that he has been craving - at least until he self destructs.

    Okay - that's my theory with lots of holes that need to be filled. Lol

    There is no part time at Little Aprons, except for school age children. The fee is monthly, and paid in advance.

    Apologies Salem... Thought that the mental health thing was an alternate theory to RH 's behavior, the why part of it. Apologies for going off track :-(. Thanks for moderating the threads back on track. It's noticeable and appreciated!

    Alternate Theories

    Children are a huge money pit...especially for RH. His wife is giving him grief about his spending...RH could free up $1000 dollars a month by getting rid of Cooper easily to spend on himself and all of his admirers. He cared more about sending penis pics to virtual strangers & hooking up with jail bait...

    IMO
