I don't interpret this wording as saying they were moved. It only refers to them being posed. Which could mean crossing the legs, replacing the glasses etc. But not necessarily moving them from another place. MOO
Yes we don’t know if they were moved after death from one area to another or just posed. But either way the act of staging would’ve taken place as it appeared the body positioning was for the purpose of disguising the fact the victims met the fate of a double homicide. Just me, I think it would be difficult to strangle another person in a sitting position from a pool rail with no back wall unless something like chloroform was used to knock them out. Even if the victims wrists were bound, a sitting position enables a struggle to take place.
