    I saw this level of anger and poster- bashing with the JBR case, so I stopped reading and discussing. It was difficult because I definitely want to see the murderer brought to justice in this lifetime.There is only SO MUCH which can be hashed and rehashed after so long, then posters start posting about each other instead of about the case.

    I believe the same thing is happening here with Darlie's case. Some of you have incredibly strong personal feelings against Darlie for your own reasons, and that is your right. I don't have because I am not convinced that she was the killer, or at least, maybe not the only killer in the house that night.
    There are those who believe Darlie alone killed the boys and cut herself, those who think Darin was also involved with Darlie, and probably some others who read and don't feel comfortable enough to post who have a lot of questions about why Darlie and not Darin alone.

    It's just like those who believe that JR killed JBR, those who believe that PR did it, those who think BR or a friend of his did it, and those who think an intruder shimmied in through a dirty basement window and killed her. When everyone gets together to discuss a point, it gets heated because of personal emotions.

    I respect everyone's viewpoint, and hope that posters can respect each other. Darlie's boys and JonBenet are dead. Darlie is on TX death row, which means that Darlie WILL die.
    Could we agree that some people DO have wiggle room for doubt in this case for their own reasons which have nothing to do with being in a clique or being a " Darlie supporter"?

    I am definitely not a Darlie supporter, but I do have an incredibly hard time believing that Darin wasn't actively involved.
    Maybe that's what's hanging Goody up too, I don't know.

    Thank you for reading my post.
    Well, thank you for your nice post, Laura. You are the only one here kind enough (except Dianne and she's been posting with me for a long time) to give me the benefit of the doubt. I have many doubts about Darlie's case. Unfortunately, none of them are about her guilt. I believe the evidence nails her, but I would like to know what happened that night, what Darin's role actually was, and how Darlie's psychological profile fit it into it all.

    You are right that it is difficult for people who don't believe she did it or who are undecided to post amongst people who hate Darlie so much. They are pounced on rudely the minute they arrive. Look at how you were treated when you first started posting here. I am glad that has settled down, but am very disappointed that my friends here have proven to be so narrow minded.

    Once again thank you for your objectivity and open mindedness.

    Now how condescending is that??? You jumped on my questions with both feet and threw hissy fits at the mere thought that someone MIGHT want to discuss the psychological aspects of this case. Just who is kidding who here? Talk about rose colored glasses. You are supposed to take them OFF when you look in the mirror

    cami]There's nothing wrong with it but in my opinion Goody will never get what she wants so her frustration level will just increase. The whole puzzle will never be fitted in place unless Darlie tells us why she did this, and she won't so why bother. Her so called friends are never going to talk or they would have by now wouldn't they?

    I think we have come close to what the motive is here but we will never know it completely.


    -Well I'll tell ya what, another case in WS, she knew what was going to happen (or she said what she thought would happen, and DID happen) and there is no way she could have known it either. So you can say all you want, but I believe the Goodymeisters' gut instincts are the sh**!!! And she may, or may not be frustrated, I dont know, but she can handle it...and Cami, I cant believe YOU of all people! Never say never

    That is just my point....you fear that talking about her psychological situations MIGHT reduce her guilt somehow. I don't have any doubt she did it, but I know up until that night she was a human being just like most human beings who live in nice new homes and bake cookies for the kids' classrooms. She was not some low life strung out on crack. She was a middle income house wife whose family and friends were shocked by the murders. If that doesn't deserve an in-depth look, whether we have the information needed available or not, I don't know what does.
    I agree Goody. Whilst we only have tidbits of information when it comes to her 'pyschological state' or contributions to motive I don't see why everyone is so against discussing it (even though I don't think we'll ever know the answer unless Darlie reveals all).

You have obviously jumped back on the fence and are teetering towards the "Darlie is innocent" yard.
    Where did Goody ask you to have an open mind about her guilt in this discussion?? And where has she defended Darlie's innocence or jumped back over the fence? Frankly that's ridiculous Beesy. Discussing why she did it and what contributed to it doesn't mean Goody or anyone else is saying she didn't do it. Goody knows the evidence which puts the knife in Darlie's hand and - dare I say it at risk of you getting all defensive and angry - she knows it better than you. Wondering if there were various external factors (maybe even one or two which was beyond Darlie's conscious control though I'm not sure what they would be really) doesn't mean she is innocent.

    I honestly don't understand where all this agro has come from and why you are all at Goody's throat. Beats me.

    You haven't been here for this entire week when we've tried to help Goody find what she's looking for. And yes, I have tried to introduce things long before I began getting huffy with her. I started this thread about the diet pills. Somebody brings up how strange it is that Darlie cried rape and Goody says "she was just a kid". Do you actually think no one will respond to that in a negative way? I posted a definition of histrionic and Goody says "nope". I was trying to show Goody something which may have contributed to the murders. I was doing what she asked us to do. Then she accuses us of not having an open mind. Anything we have come up with it's just wrong, wrong, wrong. Not once has she said "hmmmm, could be". I've asked her to come up with something new and she hasn't. I'd love to hear something new. It's not there. What else could it be?

    Goody! I started this thread suggesting that the diet pills could have had something to do with murders. We went through all of that and I found out she wasn't taking amphetamines. Then I suggested histronics and narcissism. Aren't those psychological issues? I don't think Darlie is a cold-blooded monster. I never have. I suggested PPD, you said "no". Any one of these things could reduce her guilt. So how can you say I'm afraid to look at them? I can't believe you are saying that. I think I'm the only one on this thread who has posted anything about it. Everyone else has said "whatever" Darlie is a human being, of course. She's a human being with something wrong. She can still be a human being and have personality disorders. How can you honestly say that I have not looked at her mental state? Time and time again, I've thrown a theory at you and you say "need more proof". That is why I just gave up. I cannot find anymore proof. I cannot think of anymore theories. That doesn't mean I don't want to look at her psychological state of mind. It means you've worn my little brain out.
    Just one more thing...if you don't want others using sarcasm in their posts, you shouldn't use it yourself. Not that it would change my posting style, but like the old saying goes, if you can't take it, don't dish it out.
    I can take the sarcasm, if it's deserved. Saying "oh big help" when I was doing exactly what you asked me to do(looking at her mental health) is uncalled for. Didn't your mother ever tell you to play nice on the playground and keep your hands to yourself?

    I strongly, and every old poster knows this, believe Darin was more than involved. If you believe in the 2nd Attack Theory(which I do), you have to believe that Darin was already downstairs when it occured. We know this because we can hear him on the 911 tape. We know about when the 2nd attack occured because of the time limits. Damon was still alive when the ME's arrived. Since Darlie was on the phone, it's very possible that Darin actually dealt him the fatal blow. Most likely she would be scared to attack Damon with the 911 OP listening to her. We know that somehow the knife got back into the family room with Darlie's blood on it after the intruder supposedly dropped it in the kitchen and she picked it up and put it on the counter. There is an outline of the knife right where Damon died, in the arms of a stranger, no less.
    Could we agree that some people DO have wiggle room for doubt in this case for their own reasons which have nothing to do with being in a clique or being a " Darlie supporter"?

    Well, defending Darlie sort of makes one a supporter does it not? There is no wiggle room as far as there being no intruder and Darlie killing the boys. There is plenty of wiggle room for other things, but none for who the killer is. There is very little room for Darin's involvement

    And none of that addresses the fact that you claim she is leaning towards Darlie being innocent- when she is clearly not.

    I suspect Damon was attacked a second time but I certainly don't think that means that Darin must have been downstairs at the time. For some reason you are just assuming it happened after she rang 911 and that the knife outline on the floor happened after that 911 call was dialled also. Why?

    I understand you think Darin was complict in the crime but a second attack theory does not necessarily implicate him also.

    Defending Darlie of what??? Geesh Beesy if you actually communicated with some of the real supporters you'd be able to see the difference I suspect.

    because it would be difficult for Damon to still be alive if she attacked him the 2nd time while Darin was still upstairs. Even if we lengthen the amount of time the ME suspects Damon could have lived after the fatal wound, it's a pretty tight squeeze. I doubt the ME is far off the mark. We can hear Darin on the tape and we know when Damon died, not the time, but as far as who was there, etc.When is Darin first heard on the tape..like at about a mintue or something? I'm too lazy to look it up right now. Then the first PO gets there at about 3:35 mins, I think, we can hear him on the tape. Then we can hear when Walling arrives, they do a cursury search and then let the ME's in. Damon is still alive and dies what about a minute after what's-his-face gets to him, right? I just think it's too long.

    I think I have communicated with some of the real supporters, unless the ones who've come here are faking it. I've also heard her family drone on about it.

    I was addressing it. That's my answer.
    Goody has completely confused me. When she says things like "she was just a kid" when some one brought up the "cry rape" story it sounds like defending to me. She didn't seem to think Darlie saying she almost took sleeping pills was abnormal. I have been accused of not wanting to delve into Darlie's mind. I am very confused by that since I have posted several things which are related to her mental state. Do you not see those posts? Goody doesn't think those things are correct and for some reason, that means I don't want to look at Darlie's psychological state. Why is that? Do you not think what I posted has to do with it? I thought personality disorders and possible abuse of drugs is looking at her mental state. Goody has just worn me out for the past several days. I have dug around on the Net, posted what I could find and then I am somebody who jumps up and down screaming "Darlie is a psycho"! Goody wanted us to see if we could find out what made Darlie tick and I thought my posts would be helpful.
    Obviously I was wrong and Goody is still a firm believer in Darlie's guilt.

I just think it's too long.

    Damon took his last breathe as soon as Kolbye rolled him over- which was the first thing he did when he got to Damon (apart from briefly checking his back). The ME estimation was that Damon could have lived 8-9mins with the wounds he sustained. That means that from the final wound there is a countdown of say 8 minutes. Even if the paramedics did not get into the house until +6.30mins from the 911 call (which I think is being a bit generous anyway) that still leaves a generous 1.5mins within the ME estimation. And since Damon died right when Kolbye went over to him that 1.5min is easily achieved. It means that Darlie must have called 911 very quickly after Damon had been stabbed the second time... but if she had already wounded herself and then seen he was still alive and attacked him again then there would be no doubt she wanted paramedics there ASAP to tend to her own wounds.

    The timeline is tight but quite realistic- surely more realisitic than imagining that either Darlie or Darin stabbed Damon during the call. It would have meant making sure that nothing was heard which would incriminate them and would have involved VERY skilled playacting by Darlie as she was talking to the operator. She wouldn't have been able to give anything away, whether that he getting Darin to stab Damon, doing it herself or responding to Darin's attack on him. It's hard enough to talk on the phone when you are distracted by TV or something let alone by stabbing your own child.

    And if they DID stab him whilst she was on the phone then why did they leave him still alive when Waddell arrived? If the point was to kill him then why didn't they keep going until he was dead? Instead they left him alive. Now, if Darlie had attacked him a second time right before she called 911 then there would have been no opportunity for her to have done so again when she sees he is alive since Darin was downstairs quick smart.

    Ok folks everyone has a right to their own personal opinions regarding Darlie but we need to think of others feelings. I've read this whole thread and it's getting somewhat heated so I'm asking that you all respect one anothers thoughts,feelings and opinions. Thank you

    You assume too much. I have never said Darlie isn't where she belongs, though I really don't think she is (now jump on that..I think she should have gotten life, BASED ON THE EVIDENCE--what a concept).

    I also did not say YOU weren't honorable. I said the honorable thing to do would be to call a spade a spade. I am sorry if you want to read more into it than that but that is hardly my fault.

    I have never asked anyone to come up with a solution to my questions. Maybe our weak point here lies in the definition of "discussion". A discussion occurs when more than one person is contributing information or ideas. Granted, a couple did throw out the same old rhetoric to support their statements that they didn't care what her psychological status was, but I would hardly call that a discussion.

    At this point, I am no longer concerned about the psychological aspects. I don't see any reason for you to leave just because you are angered by this thread. There are a ton of other threads you can participate in where this subject won't come up.

    Thanks, Dianne, but I think you are preaching to deaf congregation. They want to believe the worst of Darlie and now the worst of Goody, but that is okay. This is just one forum in a vast universe of forums, and skipping over Darlie's psyhcological aspects won't kill me.

    [QUOTE=Dani_T]I agree Goody. Whilst we only have tidbits of information when it comes to her 'pyschological state' or contributions to motive I don't see why everyone is so against discussing it (even though I don't think we'll ever know the answer unless Darlie reveals all).

    Ah, another voice of reason has arrived. Bless you, Dani. I agree that drawing a conclusion after discussing it is not likely. It would have been great though if we could have ONE thread on the psychological aspects just to get some input by passing workers in the psychiatriatric field. Not much chance of that now.

Do you actually think no one will respond to that in a negative way? I posted a definition of histrionic and Goody says "nope". I was trying to show Goody something which may have contributed to the murders. I was doing what she asked us to do. Then she accuses us of not having an open mind. Anything we have come up with it's just wrong, wrong, wrong. Not once has she said "hmmmm, could be". I've asked her to come up with something new and she hasn't. I'd love to hear something new. It's not there. What else could it be?
    You posted the first comments about psychological issues on Jan 12th....one full day before you posted the above!!! A week, indeed! You said my comments about her attempted suicide showed proved she was histrionic. I didn't agree. I said there could be other explanations for the suicide, esp in lieu of the fact that it wasn't even a real suicide attempt. It leaned much more so on the side of "threat." So YOU, beesy, YOU are the one who brought up this topic and then YOU climbed all over me when you didn't like my responses. It just sort of avalanched after that and my message got lost in the shuffle. But that's okay. I owe you one. (Personally, I am wondering if you just weren't miffed at my comments about your error in the diet pill discussion and knew the psychological issues would cause fur to fly. If so, it was a good strategy. It worked.)

    They certainly are. So,you see I didn't bring it up. YOU did. I merely voiced my opinion on what you had to say and got filled full of bullets for it. So much for Goody trying to push this issue on you guys. Proof is always in the pudding.

    I did not say "no." You said Darlie admitted to having PPD. I said she did not. Darin said she had "baby blues." He was pretty clear he did not consider that to be PPD and so do most experts as the "baby blues" typically only last for about a month shortly after the birth. Darlie has not admitted to anything regarding PPD that I can recall. Then you came back and said some condescending thing about them not knowing the what PPD even was because people didn't talk about it until recently. Maybe the media didn't, but women and medical people sure as heck did.

    Everything I say gets twisted into some new meaning once you process it in that brain of yours. (And, no, I am not making fun of your brain!!!!) I am just pointing out that maybe you should slow down and read the words a little more thoroughly so you can retain it as it was written.

    No, it doesn't. Unless she was insane, nothing will reduce her guilt. And there is no way she was insane. At least not enough to be legally insane and that is the only insanity that counts in a criminal court. At best, psychological issues, if provable, could provide mitigating circumstances to save her life. Unless she wins this appeal, even that might not help.

How can you honestly say that I have not looked at her mental state? Time and time again, I've thrown a theory at you and you say "need more proof". That is why I just gave up. I cannot find anymore proof. I cannot think of anymore theories. That doesn't mean I don't want to look at her psychological state of mind. It means you've worn my little brain out.

    O, is that what is wrong with it? hahahahahahahahah.

    You weren't very nice about the way you were helping. It was all sarcastic and angry. You called her a psychopath and said she is still crying and stamping her feet. How you know all that without anything to back it up is what I am complaining about. I am not saying you are wrong, just pointing out that I...ME...I cannot connect the dots that most of the posters here do, esp YOU. You make huge leaps on little or no information. And that is what I am getting attacked here for. Because those doing the attacking have no problem with doing it and are telling me to shape up and join the club. Sorry, but I can't. Not until I have more information, whether that is ever possible or not.


    And the sarcasm was deserved. You are constantly calling me names and posting rude comments. Most of them I have let slide. You're getting off easy, so don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

    There you go again. January 12th was two days ago. That is when this discussion started...the day you first mentioned psychological issues.

    Okay, you didn't jump but you did call her a psychopath. Read your posts.

    Yes, you got it wrong. Goody is still a firm believer in Darlie's guilt.

Now, if Darlie had attacked him a second time right before she called 911 then there would have been no opportunity for her to have done so again when she sees he is alive since Darin was downstairs quick smart.
    This is interesting reason.

    Owe me one what? I started the thread hoping to talk about her mental state. The possibility that she was abusing speed is about her mental condition. And no I am not miffed I was wrong. In fact I said that Goody said it was Phen-Fen, but actually it was just the Phen. I finally read it with my magnifying glass!
    Well, it seems like a week! LOL Listen Goody, all I was saying is that I have looked at Darlie's mental health in response to you saying that I am scared to look too closely at Darlie for fear I may find something which reduces her guilt. I know I brought up the psychological issues! Which is why I don't undertand what you said this to me:
    That is just my point....you fear that talking about her psychological situations MIGHT reduce her guilt somehow. I don't have any doubt she did it, but I know up until that night she was a human being just like most human beings who live in nice new homes and bake cookies for the kids' classrooms. She was not some low life strung out on crack. She was a middle income house wife whose family and friends were shocked by the murders. If that doesn't deserve an in-depth look, whether we have the information needed available or not, I don't know what does.
    So you agree that I started the mental health issues, but that I am scared of discussing them? That is why I am confused. So I am not debating what the mental conditions are anymore, I'm telling you that I am not afraid to look there. Actually, I'm so confused now I don't know if I understand your post. Are you still saying I fear looking closer at Darlie or are you just debating my suggestions?

    O, knock it off. You know perfectly well when I used the word "fear," I was referring to you jumping to the conclusion that I no longer believed she was guilty.
