    (CNN)He's a once-aspiring Marine with a history of run-ins with the law. A one-time community college student convicted three times in New York, including for second-degree assault. A former American Iron Works worker now charged with murder in the death of the man who led that company -- Savvas Savopoulos -- and his family.

I can see why it would take longer to identify VF, but her husband identified her pretty quickly.
    We have gone back and forth on this. Everyone assumes because (1) it did turn out to be SS and (2) it was SS' home and his other family members were there, that everyone knew at the time that the body was SS. But I'm telling you they did not, or at least there was some uncertainty. It was the middle of the day -- would they assume SS was home? -- he was most likely in worker type clothes having been working at the dojo, and I don't know that he was that recognizable.

    We are talking about a conversation with JW within a few hours of the fire. Family had most likely not have identified the bodies and, in any event, I remember at the press conference the next day a discussion of means other than family ID. I could be wrong about that. Even if they suspected it was SS, they would not have told JW.

    He may have tried to call both SS and AS and when the calls were not answered he decided to text Amy because he assumed she was not at the house. This would be consistent with his message.

    Is longtime next door neighbors an exaggeration?

    IMO JMO, if you deem as believable the clearly stated account of an investigative journalist who did deep research/interviews to determine that JW and DW lived feet away from each other for years, then, no, it's not an exaggeration. (Though the journalists article, of which he expounded on in his quote, is approved for this discussion, I don't know for sure if the specific link to his quote is approved, or I would include.)

    <modsnip>

    So, even if you take the simple public info loosely and leave open the possibility that the young men could come and go in the two apts, this info only supports (certainly doesn't conflict with) the journalist's determination.

    <modsnip>

    Coincidence? If so, a pretty strange one.

    It would be pretty stupid to hire a hit man that lived right next door to you, to be easily found in public records.

    Not if you believed that the hostage holder's identity would never be discovered and therefore the connection would never be exposed.

    But DW got hungry for pepperoni.

    (I'm not jumping to the conclusion that it was a planned hit. Could be. But I would be far more easily convinced that JW enlisted the scariest guy he knew to hold the family so they could eek out as much money as possible, then things went awry.) IMO

    Regardless of how much sense it makes or doesn't make for the murderer and the person who delivered the ransom to have that connection, it is still true. So either really stupid (if JW was involved) or an implausible coincidence (if JW was not).

    Let us hope that our society has NOT devolved to such an extent that finding "muscle" to participate in a violent home invasion presents as many choices as looking on Angie's list for a plumber!

    I'm assuming that JW did not have a long list of associates to choose from...so he went with the choice he had available...to get the job done. Or they came to him after viewing all those tempting social media posts of the stuff his new Boss had.

    Greed and desperation have been motives for theft and murder (when people get in the way) since the beginning of time. And I don't think there is a perimeter on greed that wouldn't allow it to seep into any world, including the go-kart world, although JW was fired from that world and couldn't even afford it, so not even sure if it's applicable to call that his world.

    I totally agree. To pull off getting the most cash possible out of SS required: 1) a conduit to pick up the cash while covering for the situation so no one would get suspicious; and 2) a threatening person with brawn, no morals and nothing to lose.

    What came first, the chicken or the egg?
