I want to add that this is the case that brought me to WS. This case has always bothered me. I'm from Texas and I know Darlie's time has got to be running out. Once here, I was able to review a lot of the transcripts from the trial as well as the evidence. I thought she might be guilty, but I was not convinced until I was able to delve into all the documents. Now I'm convinced Darlie did kill those two precious boys. I do not think Darin had anything to do with the murder. If anything, he probably feels guilty about the fight the night before and that is why he is standing by Darlie.
I would love all of you to convince me of exactly why you came to this conclusion, because I have always believed the exact opposite that she was innocent??? Please help me understand. Long time since I have visited this case and I would have thought she would have been put to death by now after all these years????
"To thine own self be true"
"When I refrain from thoughts of harm directed toward others, I accumulate all the benefits of life"
No one can convince you. You have to read for yourself and then decide. You have to weigh both sides and then come to your own conclusions.
A good place to start is reading the trial transcripts.
Several things convinced me of Darlie's guilt. Years ago and first, it was the metal screen (window) filings found on the kitchen knife that was put back into the butcher block; the fact that the two children were so brutally attacked, but yet the one person who could possibly defend themselves and cause harm to an intruder is left alive; the sink washed of blood and also the blood on the sofa tried to be cleaned; the oh so brave act of picking up the knife and chasing the intruder; the invitation to the press to attend a birthday party at the grave of her two brutally murdered sons; and, the lack of trauma Darlie displayed. There are many more reasons, but these are a few that stand out in my mind.
If anyone here has ever been attacked, has had to defend themselves in fear for their lives, and/or has had a child die, you would know that Darlie's behavior, even her behavior today, is so far off the charts that it points to her guilt. It's difficult to explain this type of trauma to anyone, so unless you have experienced it, I'm not sure one could understand it. With trauma, you experience severe physical and emotional changes in your body and I've seen none of those, not even a hint, in Darlie. As always, all of this is my opinion only.
Hello to Two precious Angels in Heaven! We all love you!
All Posts are My OPINION only, Thank you and Have a Wonderful Day!
WHERE IS HALEIGH???
I have commented on this case many times and I read all the transcripts,unlike the ramsey case,IMO Darly is not guilty....
...it may just be a gut feeling but I don't understand how someone who may have been depressed but not drunk or drugged other than diet pills could go from watching a movie,falling asleep and then waking up and going into a rage...the brutality and rage of this murder points me away from thinking Darly is guilty....I could see her smother the children but the rage is what I can't connect to her.She does not have a history of violence.
There were simililar incidents of break ins in the area....how did the bloody sock get into the alley?
Her reaction to her babie's death does not surprise me at all...I believe I would act similar...I can totally relate to her inability to face reality and celebrating the baby's birthday instead of realizing his death...
....also I don't think Darly,if she wanted to kill herself would have used a knife which leaves visible scares,she is rather vain...
....there is just too much in this case that tells me Darly did not do it...her family in laws support speaks volumes to me as well...
I don't see anything in the transcripts that makes her 100% guilty....why shouldn't there be blood on the back of her shirt?...why wouldn't she have washed the towels in the sink?...why wouldn't she have picked up the knife?...WHERE IS THE SECOND KNFE?...WHO'S FINGERPRINT IS ON THE COFFEE TABLE?...HOW DID THE BLOODY SOCK GET INTO THE ALLEY?
Because the rage was an explosion of anger that had been building probably for years, ever since her own childhood and her two boys were the unfortunate victims of that rage.
Not to bust your chops but how do you think the sock got in the alley? Someone put it there for a reason unbeknown to us.
Why should her boys' blood be on the back of her nightshirt? If she was attending the boys don't you think their blood would be on the front of her shirt and not the back?
The pattern of the blood on the back of her nightshirt is what tells the investigators she held the knife and she stabbed the boys..it's cast-off.

.....and so much more
Darin did not commit these murders. He was thoroughly investigated as well and no evidence could be found that he was involved.
As for Darin, I think he suspected Darlie did it and if there were any questions about his LDT, then I believe that would be the reason.
As for the sleeping, that's interesting because Darlie was supposedly sleeping downstairs because the new baby's breathing kept her awake. Yet she hears nothing until someone is standing over her and/or her one son wakes her (depending on which version of Darlie's you look at)?
As for a knife being used when Darlie was so vain, we once knew someone who was a beautiful model who committed suicide. She was so vain, in her 30-40's she never took off her sunglasses. She killed herself in her robe, no makeup and with a knife. It was difficult to believe as vain as she was that she would go this way, but she did. So, it does happen.

I have a theory about the bloody sock and the "second knife". Darlie put a sock on her hand before she attacked the first time. After she stabs both boys, she runs out the back gate, down the alley and attempts to throw the knife and the sock in the storm sewer. While the knife goes in, she misses and the sock hits the ground. In her mad dash to get back to the house, either she didn't notice or didn't care. When she gets back to the house, she sees that Damien is still alive and crawling toward the door in an effort to escape. She goes back to the butchers block, takes out another knife and finishes the job. Hence, the "second" knife. Which is also why she had to make up the "I already picked up the knife" story. See, she had already discarded the first knife and thought the police would just figure that the perp. took it with him. Now she hasn't got the time to run back down the alley, so she invents another story. As for those fingerprints on the table, they haven't been proven to "not" belong to Darlie or the boys either. My guess is that they belong to one of the boys and are just so smeared they cannot be identified.

No, Darlie has not been excluded as the source of the fingerprints. I think they are her's. One is in the family room, one on the door on the other side of the house yet the only blood trail in between is Darlie's.
There's a new recent blog about Darlie Routier on the website EYES FOR LIES under the blog section. Sorry, for some reason I can't link it here. You can use your browser search for EYES FOR LIES.
Eyes for Lies is one of the real "naturals" as depicted on the tv show "Lie to Me".
I recently watched a tv show in wich they mentioned Darlie, in that show it was stated that all these years her story has not changed. Can anyone tell me if this is true? Im pretty sure it has changed..Just wondering also has she been given a new trial yet?
What I post is JMO and only JMO I mean no offence to anyone at anytime
Darlie killed her two little boys because they were cramping her style.
similar to what Casey felt Caylee was doing to her.
Both are evil and guilty as sin
I hope CA gets the DP in Florida.What she did to that beautiful little girl deserves the harshest punishment available.
Children are so innocent.Why do these mothers keep killing them? There can't be any reason to murder your child, I don't care what it is. Give the child to someone who wants it if you don't any longer. I'd take them.
