    Burke's Swiss Army Knife...

    Article for reference:
    http://denver.rockymountainnews.com/...802rams1.shtml

    How did the knife end up all the way from where the housekeeper hid it and down in the basement, to be found after the murder?
    She hid it a month before the murder, and never saw it up through that time.

    How would an intruder have found it? If he'd needed a knife for some reason, I'd think he'd look in the kitchen rather than rummaging upstairs in cabinets (or even better...he'd bring his own!).

    Good question, SleuthingSleuth.

    I think Burke's knife is another smoking gun. Hoffman-Pugh, the housekeeper thought so, too. In her interview with Peter Boyle she was very upset about it and kept saying that only she and Patsy knew where that knife was kept.

    The Swiss army knife is a further piece of evidence added to the crime scene to point in the direction of Linda Hoffman-Pugh. IMO many, many things are explained if we appreciate that the Ramseys set up the crime scene to point at their housekeeper. The Swiff army knife is one of these. It has been placed in the basement in order to implicate LHP. That was the Ramsey's plan. The note at the base of the stairs was designed to point directly at LHP. The "two gentlemen" in the note point to her husband and his friend who had recently done work for the Ramseys. Why was the body in the winecellar? Because Mr HP and his friend (two gentlemen) were the people who had been in the wine cellar most recently. The Swiss Army knife was placed in the basement because it would provide a definite link with the housekeeper (and only the housekeeper). Why was there no POE for an intruder? Because the Ramseys planned to direct all suspicians to someone with a key, namely LHP. Patsy immediately named LHP as a suspect. Keep this in mind and many of the little mysteries are solved. Patsy moved the knife to the basement. IMO

    Hummm...
    But in the article linked above about the knife it says:

    "Hoffmann-Pugh said she didn't tell JonBenet's parents where she stowed Burke's knife."

    ??? Who is inconsistant here??? The reporter, investigators or Hoffmann-Pugh???

    Possibly.

    "Why was there no POE for an intruder? Because the Ramseys planned to direct all suspicians to someone with a key, namely LHP."

    It's simpler than that, Plenum7! The whole idea HAD to revolve around the ransom note. That HAD to be the first thing they saw to indicate something was wrong, imo.
    I'm as mad as HELL and I'm NOT gonna take it anymore!.
