The murder has never presented itself to me as an accident. JBs skull was hit too hard. It was meant to do horrific damage and it did. If it was an accident, JR could phone his lawyer, no matter who did it, to discover that if BDI, there could be no charges. Too young, under law, to be charged. There would be a CPS investigation. Would they sacrifice their money and reputations due to an in home investigation? If BDI, there is no need for the adults to strangle her as some may feel one of them did. I totally get BDI, except for the location. Con: How did BR get JB to the dreadful basement that she detested with all of her might? Her body does not indicate abrasions from long periods of dragging. UKGuy, respectfully, this is not a case of playing doctor gone wrong, jmho. JBs genital area of her body was raped, poked and prodded with the artist's paintbrush until she bled. That is not playing dr. That is sadistically sexually abusing a child. I had a student once who detested being touched by others. It was as if he felt a physical pain when touched. He always screamed. And, lawdy, don't touch any of his personal belongings! BR may not be this severe but the audacity of anyone touching his drink can! I wouldn't drink from it again either had it been mine. Nor do I equate pineapple in JBs system as being an encounter from stealing BRs fruit. Merry Christmas! Justice for JonBenet!
