    Crazy "F" s

    BlueCrab agreed with me that there were sufficient number of crazy "F" s in the Ransom Note that stand out as unique. If I saw those crazy "F" s in the printing of any related suspects, I think I would know who dunit. And I am not a specialist in handwriting analysis.

    Look at the Ransom Note (somebody please copy an image here if they have it). Note the way the capital "F" obliques upward sharply to the left and the cross bar rolls over the "F" completely. It seems rare to me.

    I have never being able to see printing of any of the people under the umbrella of suspicion that includes those "F" s. If you have found it, then you might solve the case!

    If you have any sources, please direct us to them or copy here. Thanks.

    They look alot like the notches the Celts made on their harps when they did the you-know-what on the solstices.

    Actually, I have never seen any of Santa's writing, but the only thing I have seen so far is a comparison of PR's and RN at candy Rose.

    Celts Always Made Notches on Harps?

    All the Celts did this? How do you know? Can you tell us more, in case we're wrong about what you-know-what really is?

    The ransom letter was written by Patsy who wanted Police to believe a foreign faction left it. She was disguising her writing so it becomes moot how these letters were written.

    Eagle1,
    I think Paradox is being funny.

    Come to think of it, trying to find answers that can definitely help you decide who dunit is like Zeno's Paradox: the more you examine things the more you find arguments on either IDI or RDI. It's hard to get anywhere. Like others I have succumbed to the weirdness of RDI.

    Yet, I must say that harp thing was weird (along with Hey Rube and 22 years to the day). So just in case, I wonder if his notches are an example of his printing.

    Exactly. There are enough similarities between Patsy's handwriting and the handwriting of the note that she has never been fully excluded as the author. She wrote it, and she wrote it to look like someone else did. Of course the Fs are odd - she was trying to make them that way.

    I tend to agree. I also note that I didn't see any of the capital "F" s in her samples given after the crime. Only one block style "F". Perhaps like ST's issue with the "a" s. You can see comparisons at Candy Rose.

    Sad. Now, what really happened there?

    Notches on Celtic Harp

    Me too. I guess there was nothing Celtic in Hey Rube. (?)

    It's just a good opportunity to learn something about the Celtic business, not saying McSanta or anyone did the crime. All the web search articles seem to have headlines along the line of "DNA Rules Out Parents" I can't find a thing on the Jacqueline Dowallaby (sp?) Chicago Murder Case. It was on A& E last night, Saturday. There were some similarities, but that house was smaller than the Ramseys', and when the bsmt window got broken, they surely would have heard it. Also the small hallway to the little girl's room had hardwood floors and would have creaked. Parents were right across the little hallway. The father's mother said she was in the house while the parents went out searching, taking the baby with them. It wasn't explained why she didn't keep the baby for them, or what time she left the house. The front door was standing open, had a deadbolt lock, and the father wasn't properly excited about it. He was in jail for a while, won an appeal, not enough proof. Jackie was 7 yrs old.

    I've searched with terms like "Chicago Child Murders 1987, 88" trying to find the correct spelling, and some kind of followup or more background, such as what would have attracted a killer to that particular household.

    The rn was written by the small foreign faction who wanted John and the whole damn world to stop paying attention to JonBenet and start paying attention to them.

    The word celt is from the Greek word keltoi, meaning "Holy crap, did you see what they did to their enemies?"

    The Celts were fond of placing the heads of creatures on wood posts. This seems to have been most appealing to them on solstices. The posts were graved. The sight of the posts became fearfull for non-Celts even if they didn't have heads on them. I suppose anything Celtic with markings on them, such as harps, would remind the good, cultured, citizens of the Mediteranean what could happen to them if they didn't spread civilization northward first.

    The "f" in the note's "follow", as in "...you must follow our instructions..." looks more like a "t" that was turned into an "f" due to the little curve to the right at the bottom of the letter. Check out pg 407 of the NE book and you will see a copy of Patsy's left-handed sample. On line 7 she wrote "...account transfer follow..." and the "f" in this "follow" also has a little line that curves toward the bottom right.

    Paradox,

    Your interpretation of the word 'celt' and its derivation from the Greek word 'keltoi', is interesting since its being used in a Racial or Geographic sense.

    There is another less divisive use where 'celt' is used more as a pan-Tribal name, to emphasise the linguistic relationship or cultural links between tribes e.g. keltic art, and the Hallstatt and La Tène cultures.

    Another interpretation of 'celt' is that 'kelt' denotes kilt-wearers.

    It is helpful to bear in mind that keltic culture predates that of greece and rome. This commonality of language and culture is still evidenced today across europe in the form of Megalithic structures: Stone circles, standing stones, and passage of light cairns etc.

    The greeks were no less racist than people today and generally referred to people who did not enjoy the benefits of living in a polis as Barbarians.

    So 'Celt' or 'Kelt' and its plural 'Keltoi' is more a modern 'umbrella' term to denote a collection of tribes and peoples, and they are numerous, having a large number of Lingusitic, Cultural, Artistic, and Racial charactersitics in common.
