    Lawrence Smith Replies - If you can say that

    At the bottom is a reply from L. Smith or his assistant to my inquiry on the release of his book and then my reply to that reply.

    RE: Response to Website feedback inquiry‏From:solace boyd (solaceboyd1@hotmail.com)Sent:Sun 12/09/07 6:05 PMTo: Laurence Smith (jlnprtvx@yahoo.com)


    I am somewhat surprised at your response regarding my inquiry into his book or his imaginary book I should say. I hardly think anyone is waiting with baited breath. Trust me Mr. Smith has become somewhat of a laughing stock because of his many scheduled release dates. As far as it being the definitive book, doubtful. I have read what he has said on his website - nothing new really - and quite frankly I think he is wrong. Just thought it would be interesting to read another book - however imaginary this book is.

    Lose the sarcasm. Lawrence Smith has no right to be sarcastic with anyone since he is the one not fulfilling the release dates.

    Wendy Murphy had no problem with her book and she is quite verbal about what she says happened and it does include the Ramseys.

    So save the whining and actually produce something. It is old already.

    All the best to you to!!.

    To: solaceboyd1@hotmail.com

    Dear Sir: 12/9/07

    As I have related to others inquiring on the Ramsey book, Mr Smith is out
    of the country consulting on the missing child case of Madeleine McCann.
    The Ramsey case and/or book is a low priority for him, as the book cover
    work is being changed. You might remind those with whom you interact
    with on the crime-sleuthing website(s), that Mr. Smith does not proffer
    so-called theories on cases like the JonBenet Ramsey or McCann cases.
    Rather, he provides conclusionary findings. Got It? There is a reason that
    he has been a member of Mensa for 24 years.

    Mr. Smith's secretary has told staff members here that he is somewhat
    amused by the overly complicated theories that are amateurishly bandied
    about (which we no longer bring to his attention), including about the family dog. Here is a secret for your blog cohorts, the Rameys did not bond with
    Jacques because, unbeknownst to JonBenet, he was a look alike replacement for Jacques-1 who had to be put to sleep.

    While the waiting time passes for Mr. Smith's Ramsey book, maybe those
    with no real lives to live - on the crime sleuthing sites, should focus more closely on Attorney Thomas "Doc" Miller's background, and his wife Judith Phillips who was excoriated by Patsy in the Ramseys book for going against
    her wishes regarding personal photos. Now Miller is whining about justice in
    his book. He should be lucky to be still practicing law after all the incompet-
    ency charges and legal rebukes he has had to fend off.

    While inquiring minds wait anxiously, and Ramsey operatives remain in a
    timorous mode of trepidation awaiting Mr. Smith's book - that will be
    'the definitive ' accounting of the JonBenet Ramsey case; the staff here on
    Laurence's behalf - wishes everyone a joyous holiday and a promisingly prosperous new year. Especially, those of like intellectual persuasion.

    Julie Simpson
    Administrative Asst/
    Research Analyst for
    Mr. Laurence Smith

    Nope,it sure doesn't sound like a professional would reply.Like anyone would even care to read the book after such a reply as that.
    As for JB's dog,Jaques the second,so who cares if he was not the original,he was still her dog,and it's still odd they didn't give him so much as an afterthought after her death.Loving and caring for him would have been a wonderful tribute to her memory,one I think most parents of a murdered child would have done.Obviously the above author,Mr L. Smith (if he even exists),and the Ramsey's don't 'get it';its quite cold-hearted to me.
    something to ponder:

    When the corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and the mortal have put on immortality, then shall we be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

    O death, where [is] thy sting? O grave, where [is] thy victory?

    The sting of death [is] sin; and the strength of sin [is] the law.
    But thanks [be] to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

    What a rude reply they gave you, Solace. And how nice that they shared the "secret" about Jacques that we already knew about.
    Oh, and we have no life. That's a good one.

    Thanks for sharing this with us Solace. We may not be members of Mensa but I think we are smarter than Mr. Smith.

    Hmmmm...if the Ramseys didn't become bonded to Jacques because he was a replacement for the first dog who died, what does that say about JR's other daughters after Beth's death?

    Should he also be similarly not-as-bonded to his other daughters because he had to experience the loss and grief of the first one?

    Personally, despite feeling empathy for JR in his grief for his lost loved one because I know the pain myself, I think that's really close to what was going on.

    My theory, if you could call it that, is that JR is not as close to his second family because he had to go through the pain of losing the first family when he got caught having an affair. I also believe Beth's death compromised JR's ability to be the family man he should have been to his wife and kids. If J&P were as close as they've always said they were, why was she making trips to get cancer treatments with her mother, or alone?

    I think the Rs weren't as bonded to Jacques because they saw him as present for their children, to win love and affection from them, but couldn't actually handle the nuts and bolts of caring for a dog as the important part of the family a pet deserves to be, especially when he didn't come already house-broken and required time and effort in training. I've already expressed my concerns for how that type of rejection and denial of responsibility was also seen in JonBenet and her incontinence, specifically Patsy's failure to address it rather than blow it off and ignore it as much as possible. Too bad there wasn't a toilet usage capability portion of those child beauty pageants...if there had been, perhaps Patsy would have addressed the situation better and JB wouldn't have had to tolerate being wet all the time and dealing with infections from exposure to wetness. It just wasn't a big enough deal to Patsy that her daughter wet her pants day and night and had to endure "frequent infections from constantly being in wet underwear." Why wasn't that a big deal to her? I can guarantee you she never would have tolerated that for herself.

    I wish I could say I'm surprised by this reply you got, Solace. I really wish I could. At least you got a reply - thank you very much for sharing it with us. Very interesting.

    WOW...I agree. That was TOTALLY rude! Like anybody would rush out and buy that stupid book, after reading that sort of reply to you....very, VERY unprofessional, sounds like it was written by a child. As far as us having no life goes....well, we are all determined to find justice for a little girl who actually has NO LIFE now, because of her parents. Because we ALL choose NOT TO FORGET....that does not mean that we have no life. She has been forgotten by the justice system...but, she will always be remembered by us. Yes, we all have a life....we just choose to devote a small portion of it, trying to help find justice for JonBenét, in hopes that one day...she will actually be able to rest in peace.

    Ames,

    Is my opinion of L. Smith suppposed to change because he is a supposed member of Mensa. Who gives a $h*#? His assistant sounds like a moron who is very impressed with Mensa. I don't believe he is anywhere near the McCann case.

    I vaguely remember someone posting soemthing about L. Smith having mental problems a while back. Seriously.

    I don't believe that he is anywhere near the McCann case either. I think that was all just a flat out lie. Mental problems? Yeah, and I think that he passed them on to his assistant.

    certainly sounds that way.
    Yes,he's too inept for the McCann case,or any case,really.Excuses excuses...

    good point,and he was said to have had affairs the second time around,too,so maybe distancing was how he dealt w/ possible loss.

    I also believe Beth's death compromised JR's ability to be the family man he should have been to his wife and kids. If J&P were as close as they've always said they were, why was she making trips to get cancer treatments with her mother, or alone?
    indeed;I find it difficult to believe JR in DOI when he says he should have put family before money,and that it might have helped prevent JB's death.

    absolutely,good point.

    STOP the presses!! No one with one eyeota of smarts is waiting one more nano second for drivel such as that. We need to get a life? No we need a DAs office with a penchant for serving justice. So Stop the presses for lack of interest and save paper. We simply do NOT care anymore. JonBenet has those who will never let the quest for justice die and as for the Millers book lets PUSh till we get that publised in English.

    If I remember correctly, a poster on Crime and Justice was sent a couple of chapters from the book. This might have been late summer. The poster said she was busy and hadn't had a chance to read them and would post when she got them read. I don't believe she has ever posted about the book again.

    Very odd to say the least. Nobody is that busy and we are talking about a couple of chapters, not volumes of books. Maybe somebody else knows more about this situation.

    As for Lawrence Smith, I have a different take on him.

    The email response is defensive and condescending. If you have ever been around very successful and/or brilliant people that is what you would expect. Do you think if you questioned Martha Stewart on something she would give you hugs?

    The FAQ part of his website is very well written and has some tantalizing tidbits. One of the best is that the figure of $118,000 was used by Patsy so John would make the connection to her. A very interesting thought.

    I hope the book is released some day but I now have strong doubts that will ever happen.
