    Oh yeah, the porch interviews that he claims to have never seen.
    Those three media interviews where he didn't even want to know what he looked like or said.
    Didn't the Thayers say he watched those obsessively at their house while his family was still 'missing'?

    Good possibility if she went as psycho as he said. Sounded already like her jealousy and histronics was wearing thin.

    I wonder if he was trying to figure a way to let them live, or let them live as long as possible. I just is incomprehensible.

    If Chris got his engineering knack from his dad, dad might have guessed what many of us didn’t. That to put bodies in oil and set the oil on fire could be a foolproof way to clean the whole crime scene.

    One thing I might not remember correctly. When SW’s mom called the police the morning of SW’s dissapearance, why did she say that CW would kill them and hide in oil? How could she foresee it?

    I wonder if during one of his visits Chris said something in a nonchalant way about the best way to hide a body, and it stayed in SR’s subconscious?

    I think - either he once discussed it in some form (“the best way to hide anything is in oil”) and it stayed in SR’s memory, or else, Chris was harboring this very plan, putting bodies in oil and eventually setting them on fire, already, during his visit to NC, and SR felt what he was thinking about. That she has great intuition is beyond any doubt. And I think he was already planning something because he was so detached.

    I think it was because he drove SW's car while she was away in NC. So he'd drive his work truck home , shower ,eat dinner and then drive SW's car to NK's house and spend the night. Next morning he'd drive back to his house and get his truck and drive to work. If he kept driving in and out of the garage the Vivant security sensor would be sending garage door alerts to SW and she'd want to know what was going on because he parked his truck on the street and used the front door to come and go. His work truck was only allowed to and from work. CW said he spent that whole month at NK's house .

    It is totally incomprehensible!!

    SW had been away for 3 days, and the girls were anxious and excited for her return. Bella reportedly woke up a couple times Sunday night, jumping out of bed to see if Mommy home, with CW promising her she would be their come morning.

    I can't fathom how CW could make those little girls ride in his truck with SW on the floor, a garbage bag over her head, and them believing their Mom was either sick or dead. Bella had to witness all of this, and also watch her baby sister be strangled by her Daddy before he did the same to her. :eek::eek::eek:

    This case and the Jessica Lunsford case are the worst I’ve heard of and will forever be burned in my memory. I still can’t get over how when I was actually around Jessica Lunsford age myself, hearing on the news how that evil man buried her alive with her stuffed animal.

    The fact that Bella, an innocent vulnerable child experienced so much trauma prior to her death is horrifying. She sang “My Daddy is My Hero” and he did the unimaginable.

    Their atrocious behavior set them apart from most victims.

    And let me say that the DA, LE and the court system quite reluctantly and only after they got counsel treated them as legally designated victims. Why? Because from the beginning they pretty much never acted like it.

    Their suffering seemed to be for their reputation and for their beloved son and covering up his crimes.

    I hear ya'. He's not typical. I think nothing is ever black and white and he doesn't fit a known mold.

    Yes and there's no need to take 11 IQ tests unless you're practicing. I've known people to do that.

    Listening to the podcast and it is GREAT, I do believe that somewhere down the line these toxic victimbashing internet pariases will be defined by a new personality disorder diagnosis. Rant over.

    Back in the beginning of this horrific case I honestly thought that when Shannan arrived home that her girls were likely already dead. I hate to say this but I have found myself wishing they had been before little Bella had the chance to witness her father killing her mother and her sister and ultimately her baby brother. It just wrecks my mind to think about what that poor girl went thru in her final hours.

    I might have packed them all in some of that
    non combustible wrap that Bella and Celeste had to be buried in, as the ultimate souvenir of their son.

    Unless he is saving himself from the dp. That would makes sense because he values HIS life, others, not so much.

    The spectrum is very large and millions of people are on it. If there is a study that links Autism to murder then I'd like to see it. Otherwise, I think it's a disservice to those on the spectrum to suggest that him potentially being autistic (something we have absolutely no basis for aside from observation from afar) has anything to do with the callous murder of 4 people.

    IIRC. he said he had to "talk her down from the ledge" a couple of times. She was apparently distraught when he had to leave her apartment each time.....

    That seems such an extreme reaction for the short amount of time they were seeing each other. Very telling and in contrast to her statements that he was more into her.
