    what if's -shed some light

    I have been reading and researching and trying to stay as objective as possible but I have some what if's-if anyone can shed some light on these:

    1. Everyone keeps talking about a time-line when the 911 call was placed but whose to say that everything wasn't staged prior to the 911 call.

    2. What if it was Darin that inflicted the wounds on Darlie (explains the inner arm bruising and neck slashing that had to have been done with the left hand) he may have done this to A. Either protect her after he came downstairs after hearing the attacks and saw that she did this or B. He was the intruder and since it was dark and she was half asleep she did not notice him and he could not go through with killing her after the kids (less plausable)

    3. Is it not possible that you could sleep through the murders if it was late (fell asleep in front of the TV (TV noise in background) with 2 kids that were killed in their sleep (they would not make any noise if they were sleeping and the blows were quick) it's not like using a bat or something else that would make loud noises. I know that I am a light sleeper when it comes to my kids moving around or coughing in the next room but there are times that I can sleep right through a loud thunderstorm and not even know that it had rained the night before.

    4. I listened to the 911 tape and the operator said FIRST don't touch anything and Darlie responded after this that she already touched the knife. She did NOT volunteer out of the blue that she had touched the knife. She sounded hysterical on the tape and every other word was 'oh my God' repeated in between explaning what was going on -she did not know CPR and I would have been on that phone trying to get someone to help my kids that knew how to save them also.

    5. The intruder did not leave blood going out of the house because the kids were laying down and any blood would have soaked and spread down the chest sides to the floor -like if you layed down and poured water over your chest and at that time there was no trail of blood it was concentrated where they were laying- Darlie had blood on her night shirt because she had leaned over the boys to help them and the little one was standing after and she was also bleeding and moving around to the kitchen and back dripping and trailing and walking making prints- Prior to her being up the intruder was in front of her leaving there was a clean path until she came from behind etc.

    The big major question I have is 'why did she get wet the towels'???? wouldn't you get dry towels to soak up the blood and stop the bleeding and not waste time getting them wet? The only reason I can think she wet them was to either 'clean' the scene to cover up evidence or because she was way shallow and didn't want a mess. How many of you wet towels when someone is bleeding?

    These are all just thoughts I had if anyone can shed any light on them at all. I really am torn between innocence and guilt on this. Thanks.

    The timeline is determined by how long Damon would have lived after the first attack, which was approximately 10 to 12 minutes if I remember correctly. The 911 call takes up 5 and a half minutes of that time.

    Impossible for him to get back upstairs once she chased him out of the garage, Besides. he can't be guilty unless she is too. He, however, has her placing him upstairs during the crime.

    Darlie was a light sleeper too which is why she says she slept downstairs in the first place/ The baby rolling around in his crib kept her awake. She was taking diet pills that probably interfered with her sleeping ability and probably made her more edgy than normal. It was a strong prescription that should hve never been given to her or anyone who had only a few pounds to lose if you ask me. Plus she had been taking them much longer than recommended. Besides they no longer claim she slept thru the murders. By the time trial rolled around that changed to traumatic amnesia and after conviction she was hypnotized and recalled fighting with two intruders, one big guy and one dark skinned little guy.

    Yes, Darlie is misunderstood on the knife thing, but she then volunteers worries about them not being able to get fingerprints. Remember now her 5 year old is dying right before her eyes and instead of worrying about him or comforting himl she is thinking about fingerprints. It is typical of domestic killings for the guilty person to make sure it is known early on that they messed up the fingerprints by handling the murder weapon. Plus she tells everyone darned near at the hospital that she messed up the fingerprints, as if she were lining up witnesses. She wanted to make sure people knew it early on to help explain why they might find hers on it. The knife handle was not made of material that picks up fingerprinfs though so all she really did was make herself look guilty every time she tried to set up that explanationl

    You can't get cast off blood that way. Even if you could because of height and other mathematical variances you would not expect the blood to land in the same place, have the same directional patterns, and be the same size as what was alredy proven in court would if Darlie had raised the knife repeatedly to stab the children.

    I confess that I wet a portion of the towel in an emergency, ony because I don't want to take the time to figure out which one I need. That way I have both but when there is a lot of blood, the wet does not work and one can see almost immediately that it creates more problems so a move to dry would be expected fairly soon. I think she lied about wetting the towels to explain why her blood and the boys was washed down the sink/ She had to explain why the water was running.

    Yes, her supporters give half the evidence and usually end up leaving out the important part to make it sound mysterious. For instance, the unidentified fingerprints were not clear enough to make a match to anyone, in the house, in the data base. They were smudged. Her supporters will have you believing they CAN be identified if they could just find the right person. Wrong!
    This case is a hard sell to people who only read what her supporters say, not to people who look past their BS. Why do you think it's a hard sell? If one looks at all of the evidence objectively the answer points to Darlie and Darlie only. It takes some work, but after some digging, it's an easy sell.
    And it sounds as if Kitty wants help with her questions, not to just examine the evidence on her own.

    One quick thing-

    Darlie maintains that the bloody fingerprint on the coffee table and on the U-room/garage door are not hers but the intruders. This means that the intruder (if he existed) must have had at least blood on his hands- enough to leave a bloody fingerprint on the coffee table but more than that to leave the bloody marks on the U-room door. There was actually enough blood left on the door to start running down the door.

    She also maintains she struggled with the intruder. I don't see how he would have come away blood free from a struggle with her if she was bleeding (which she would have had to have been).

    Finally, there is a imprint on the carpet of the bloody knife. The blood on that imprint which is where the tip of the knife would have rested on the carpet is particularly heavy. That means that whoever held the knife before putting it down on the carpet had blood running down their arm and collecting at the tip of the knife before it was put down. That means

    a) the intruder was either bleeding significantly
    b) Darlie held the knife in her hand and then put it down on the carpet and then moved it back to where it was found ,<-- which does not jibe with her story at all.

    And in all of this, all the blood stops right at the door to the garage (apart from the blood on the sock).

    It just doesn't fit.

    Haha she also claims to have been awakened by Damon and seeing a man, here, there or there or here.....I know y'all know I like how she describes him as a "blur of a man" in In Her Own Words, but I know what you're saying. If she had fought with him as she claims in one of her stories, he would have been bloody.

    I have been reading and researching and trying to stay as objective as possible but I have some what if's-if anyone can shed some light on these
    I'll try to provide some other evidence than what Goody and Dani have already provided, so it won't be a repeat.
    1. Everyone keeps talking about a time-line when the 911 call was placed but whose to say that everything wasn't staged prior to the 911 call
    Damon lived about 8-10 mins AFTER the fatal wound was delivered. The first thing you need to do is decide when that was delivered. Some people believe the final wound was delivered before Darin even came downstairs during a 2nd attack. That is a very tight squeeze. They start the clock there; If she stabbed him last before Darin came downstairs, that means she dialed 911 after she stabbed Damon. Darlie is on the phone for over 5 mins. The first PO arrives at around 3 mins. into the call the 2nd PO soon after, Damon is still alive, The cops do a cursory search before allowing the medics in, Damon is still alive. The medic reaches Damon, he dies in his arms. I think it's too tight. So I have the 2nd attack occurring after Darin came downstairs, perhaps even during the 911 call. There is a place in there when she is very distracted, almost sounds angry at the OP for asking her questions. The rest is the same, PO arrives at about 3 mins, 2nd, then they do a cursory search, let the medics in, Damon dies in his arms.
    Darlie's story can't fit and as soon as she makes that call, we know what time everything took place. Darlie says both boys were attacked before she was. Then Damon woke her up, she follows the intruder, stops, turns back, hits the light, back around, picks up the knife, puts it on the counter, walks back into the entryway, then screams for Darin. Then she calls 911 and blah blah blah, Damon has run out of time and should be dead before the medic gets to him.

    2.(explains the inner arm bruising and neck slashing that had to have been done with the left hand)
    I think Goody explained the other stuff, but why would the neck wound have to be cut with the left hand? And why does that prove Darin did it? And how does Darin being the attacker explain the arm bruising? There is no evidence that the arm bruises were sustained that night.They are BFT and holding somebody down doesn't qualify as BFT
    4. I listened to the 911 tape and the operator said FIRST don't touch anything and Darlie responded after this that she already touched the knife. She did NOT volunteer out of the blue that she had touched the knife. She sounded hysterical on the tape and every other word was 'oh my God' repeated in between explaining what was going on -she did not know CPR and I would have been on that phone trying to get someone to help my kids that knew how to save them also
    The problem is not WHO said it first. The problem is that Darlie keeps coming back to it, again and again. The OP actually has to tell her to get off the phone. 2 PO's arrived by 4 mins. into the call, yet here she is still on the phone, not listening to the PO's, not sitting by either child and wailing "who would do this" and fretting about her fingerprints! Darin was supposedly doing CPR on Devon and of course you don't perform CPR on someone who is still alive, but she could have sat her butt down beside Damon and told him she loved him and that he'd be ok. She went nowhere near him, once the cops arrived. Damon had his eyes open and was following movement in the room. He knew...he saw......

    5. The intruder did not leave blood going out of the house because the kids were laying down and any blood would have soaked and spread down the chest sides to the floor -like if you layed down and poured water over your chest and at that time there was no trail of blood it was concentrated where they were laying- Darlie had blood on her night shirt because she had leaned over the boys to help them and the little one was standing after and she was also bleeding and moving around to the kitchen and back dripping and trailing and walking making prints- Prior to her being up the intruder was in front of her leaving there was a clean path until she came from behind etc
    Well, it would have difficult for an intruder to not step in blood on the way out. He didn't have to been dripping blood to leave it somewhere. And heh heh there was blood in the kitchen, ALOT of it. When they sprayed the Luminol, small bare footprints showed up, footprints which had been wiped away! Then in front of the kitchen sink, more wiped up blood, in the sink and the counter, more wiped up blood. Wasn't it nice of an intruder to do that?

    The big major question I have is 'why did she get wet the towels'???? wouldn't you get dry towels to soak up the blood and stop the bleeding and not waste time getting them wet? The only reason I can think she wet them was to either 'clean' the scene to cover up evidence or because she was way shallow and didn't want a mess. How many of you wet towels when someone is bleeding?
    There is not any proof that there were wet towels on the scene at all. Nobody puts Darlie at the sink but Darlie. She doesn't mention wetting towels until she sees that LE had taken the kitchen sink. She had to put herself there because she was there, to cut her throat.

    These are all just thoughts I had if anyone can shed any light on them at all. I really am torn between innocence and guilt on this. Thanks

    Well thank you all for your answers. I needed some other scenarios to what I was thinking and yes, I did examine most all of the evidence I could find. Transcripts-both Darin and Darlies, crime scene, 911 tape, autopsies of both boys, etc. but the same evidence can be put together in different ways to make different scenarios that sometimes can make a different outcome. I am a claims adjuster and all I do all day is investigate people's injury claims, how they happened, if they happened ,if they could have happened so I tend to be a little cautions when jumping to conclusions after doing that for so long.

    1. The Luminal hit me hard, I had fogotten that it was cleaned up at the sink-that couldn't have happened when she was running the water to wet the towels?

    2. The blood running down the door because someone was turning the handle but after, the arms could have been held not to drip a trail so that they would not be followed or their trail found. Once you realize you are bleeding you can wipe on your shirt or something.

    "Then Damon woke her up, she follows the intruder, stops, turns back, hits the light, back around, picks up the knife, puts it on the counter, walks back into the entryway, then screams for Darin. Then she calls 911 and blah blah blah, Damon has run out of time and should be dead before the medic gets to him."

    3. I timed this process (frantically as someone would have been) and gave a good couple second leway time and I counted this whole process to 25 seconds. I really don't think this attack occured during the 911 call.

    4. If she fought with an intruder yes there would have been transfer of blood but she was not cut that bad (or to my knowledge as bad as the kids) as to have that transfer to someone else be running off of them versus just getting on the clothing but NOT necessarily on the bottom of their shoes. I had an old boyfriend once who decided to punch my plate glass door window and cut pretty deep into an artery- the blood was very heavy, squirting and soaked on the clothing -he left then came back (knowing he needed my help) I got a towel (a dry one in a frantic) and ran him to the car but when I came back from the hosp to my surprise the only blood I had to clean up was at the door. BY the way, he is fine now-just stitches and some surgery-

    5. Does anyone know how much blood was on the sock? soaked or just a trace on there?

    6. Why in the world, if she knew that she did it, would she want the fingerprints on the table and the door handle examined further- and the hair on the sock (why didn't they do this before??) wouldn't that seal her fate at that point and you would think that she would just pull her own plug right?

    And I don't get motive... why not just off her husband for some insurance money? She gains nothing from killing the kids. And she didn't touch Drake.

    I think I need some more answers please........

    Maybe if she actually wet towels, but there is no independent supporting evidence backing up that claim. She didn't even mention wet towels until after she saw that police had taken the sink and plumbing out of the kitchen. There were no watered down blood areas around the sink indicating that she had slopped any water as she hurried back and forth (4 trips they claim) to deliver these wet towels, and at one point she supposedly claimed to have thrown a whole stack of dry towels to Darin from the kitchen, which makes a lot more sense/ You'd think Darin would have been hollering for dry towels since wet ones would only make it more difficult to try to absorbk the blood and apply pressure. There is also no sound of water running on the 911 tape.

    That arm wound was not very deep, only about an inch but it bled a lot/ Most of the blood dripped in the family room, kitchen, and utility room was from that wound/ It is what fed the blood to the knife that made the imprint in the carpet. She never wrapped it and that tells me that time was very limited.

    As soon as Darin comes downstairs, according to their story, she gets on the phone with 911. But Darin does not see Damon when he enters the fam room. He should have practically tripped over him. Now that tells me that Damon was not there yet. We know he was attacked the second time in the second location near the kitchen doorway because of the b lood spatter/cast off on the wall. So if he was not there when she got on the 911, when else could he have been attacked the second time? Had to be before police arrived, which was only about 3 minutes into the call.

    Her neck wound was seeping, for the most part being absorbed by the shirt, but the arm wound was bleeding and dripping a lot. Plus she was hypnotized a couple of years ago and claims that there were two intruders she struggled with on the sofa, believe she was standing as she tried to fight them off, so blood should have been flying off that arm wound everywhere and certainly on them/ Glad to hear your friend is okay.

    I think there were 5 drops; 2 tested. Plus the toe where her dna was found

    To buy time. DR inmates do it all the time. If they can get testing. the clock stops until test can be done and that is months usually/ She probably knows by now that she is not going to win appeals so they are just going thru the motions, doing whatevre they can to keep her alive as long as they can.

    I think I need some more answers please........
    I think there is a unique motive in this case. Her marriage was more important to her than the kids and there were probably many factors that played into it. There are hints laced throughout the case of what might have been going on with her but nothing conclusive so unless or until she or Darin talk we may never know exactly why she did it.

    [QUOTE=Kitty5001]
    1. The Luminal hit me hard, I had forgotten that it was cleaned up at the sink-that couldn't have happened when she was running the water to wet the towels?
    Some people believe she wet towels that night and some say she didn't at all. That she came up with the towel wetting when she saw the kitchen sink and plumbing had been taken. As far as I know there were no wet towels found at the scene. And wetting towels to clean up blood would have left her with a sloppy mess. There was a large amount of blood in a wipe pattern. It wasn't just cleaned up at the sink, but on the floor as well. Small bare-footed prints going back and forth between kitchen/FR/UR. were wiped up. At some point she realized there was too much blood to clean up and had to figure out how to put herself in the kitchen. That is why she said she followed the man thru the kitchen to the UR doorway. That is why she said she started after him, turned around, which means she turned her back on a man with a weapon, hit the light and continued after him. She had too many back and forth prints, she had to come up with something.This is always part of her many stories. There are no outs for the clean up, none at all.

    3. I timed this process (frantically as someone would have been) and gave a good couple second leway time and I counted this whole process to 25 seconds. I really don't think this attack occured during the 911 call
    I think maybe you misunderstood me? Why would it take 25 seconds to deliver Damon the fatal blow? I shortened it some becaue I've told the story so many times, so I'll try to do it better. This is my opinion based upon facts. She kills Devon first, he fights with her, but just for a few secs. she moves to Damon who is asleep on his tummy, stabs him in the back until she believes he is dead. I think she screams for Darin. She was injured during one of the attacks and must then include herself as a victim. There is no time line here because they have not called 911 yet. I figure they cry and scream at one another. Possibly out of guilt because he'd been treating her so bad lately(that's a whole nother story), he feels well they are gone, save Darlie now. So she cuts her throat, probably with him helping her guide the knife. She recoils and the knife bounces back down onto her shoulder. Darlie has already cut the screen. Firstly Damon never got and up walked around. They are ready to call 911. Darlie and Darin have plenty of time to finish things in the 3 mins before the first PO arrives. At some point early in the call Darin seems to disapper. I think he's ditching the sock
    Darlie is screaming on the phone, you know the deal, One or the other notices Damon is moving. He is crawling across the floor, leaving a bloody hand print on the carpet, trying to brace himself on the sofa. Luminol showed a little hand print and butt print there. Darlie/Darin has already cleaned the counter and washed blood down the drain from where she cut her throat. The knife is on the counter. She has to put the knife down on the floor beside Damon to stab him again(the fatal blow), maybe Darin helps hold him down. The knife outline is in her blood, but remember she says the boys were attacked before she was. Why would an intruder after stabbing Darlie who she says she chased out of the house, lay the knife down beside Damon in Darlie's blood? So I start my time-line 01:39:28911 Operator #1...I need you to talk to me...01:41:21Darlie Routier...what ...what ...what... 01:44:25RADIO...(unintelligible)...
    I start my clock here where she sounds very distracted with "what what what". From here Damon has 8-10 mins to live
    03:45:19
    Police Officer
    look for a rag...









    he stands guard at the door, telling Darlie to get a rag for Damon. 2nd PO arrives, they do cursory search before they allow the medics in.
    04:42:25Police Officer...nothing's gone Mrs. Routier...04:44:10Darlie Routier...oh my God ...oh my God ...why would they do this...04:48:03RADIO...(unintelligible) to advise (unintelligible) 200...04:50:18Police Officer...(unintelligible) the problem Mrs. Routier...
    Darlile gets off the phone at 5:38. Cop walks out to front yard to give the medics the go ahead, they run in, one to Devon, one to Damon. Damon still had life in his eyes, but it was fading. He died in the medic's arms on the scene. Stop Clock

    Beesy, where is the crime scene evidence found where it shows the wipe up pattern of the blood and the hand and butt print etc.? Certainly not on her site and I don't find it in any of the transcripts. Thanks.

    My opinions are now getting a little more clouded from when I first thought that she may be innocent. Hmmmm.

    I used to just lurk here and couldn't believe Darlie was guilty but after reading for a while I realized the sad truth and that is that Darlie murdered two of her children. She has changed her story in approx 16 ways to defend herself from the evidence all pointing to her.

    Why on earth were the boys stabbed in their chests and backs while this murdering lunatic spared Darlie?

    Why did her little boy die in the arms of a stranger while Darlie stood back?


    Stick around and I believe you will eventually see the sad truth.

    The hand and butt print on the sofa were not wiped up. The handprint on the carpet was not either.
    There is no picture of the hand and butt print that were on the sofa. They could be seen with the naked eye, but since LE had darkened the room to spray the Luminol and the blood was under a blanket(hmm), they did not see them until they sprayed the Luminol, which will ruin visible blood. It is in Springer's book "Flesh and Blood" and I think it's in the transcripts, maybe under Lynch or Cron. As far who the killer was, that doesn't prove anything one way or the other, but it does up the freak-out factor.
    The bloody hand print on the carpet was visible and was preserved and tested. There was also a trail of blood behind it as Damon dragged himself along..
