I think I might understand how the chloroform played a part in all of this. And how the odor of it got in the trunk of the car. Last night on NG:
LP: But Nancy, let me take you back to the shovel. She backs the car into the garage, she takes the child, lays her down, takes her clothes off, moves the ladder towards the edge of the pool, puts the child in the pool, gonna make it look like a drowning. The child drops to the bottom of the pool, she goes to the neighbors, pulls the shovel from the neighbor, comes back up, scoops the child up, puts her back down on the grass. Anyhow, all I'm sayin' is, there's your shovel, there's your shovel.
Nancy: Let me just say one line, the search for chloroform shows me that there was never any accident, you're saying that that would explain......
LP: You're correct, she wanted to make it look like a 911 accident. But it never happened, never happened.
Nancy: Understood, understood.
Why would she even need the shovel ? Why not just get in the pool and lift her out herself ?? UNLESS, she borrowed the shovel AFTER no one answered their cell phones. AFTER the drowning. To dig a hole.
I'm thinking what Leonard is saying here that she used the chloroform to knock her out before she put her in the pool so she wouldn't suffer or make any noise during the drowning. THAT would finally make sense out of the chloroform. To me, anyway.
Then I'm thinking she tried to call her parents, planning to cry help and then call 911, but neither of them would answer her calls, because they're still pissed at her for the Father's Day argument over Great Grandma's stolen money, so her plan is wrecked, and now she has to come up with a new one.
So maybe she then borrowed the shovel and buried her in the yard, and then on July 27th she goes and digs her back up and takes her to the airport and drops her off in the bushes, close by where the dress was found by the person who was working "with" LES the day they stopped their search, and everyone was crying. (I didn't say "for" LES, because Tim said the person worked "with" them, and it was reported by someone else that the person was part of another team that worked with, or along side of LES, but not a part of his actual team.)
I think she planned it in advance because she was angry at her Mom, and because Caylee was beginning to speak and could soon spill the beans that there was no nanny.
She did the chloroform searches in advance, and when her initial plan failed, so she just went with the flow, and made up lies along the way. I think it's as simple as that. And I believe that the body was either found the day the dress was, and Tim is really here to testify today, or the body is in the same area at the airport where the dress was found and Tim already knows it.
My theory could be flawed, I'm so sleepy I can hardly type.
Do we know the dates the computer searches were done for chloroform ?
I looked here for over half an hour, and quit; I'm too sleepy.
Did all this make sense ?
