    That would be best, but I'm not convinced it was that clean. There were stranglation marks, but she was also viciously beaten in the head area - causing her teeth to fly across the room. I seem to recall that police speculated that there was a fight.

    Quite true. There was no way to rule him out a suspect even though many other suspects were ruled out during the investigation.

    BBM - I've wondered the same thing, Wyn... if she had been sleeping, then she really didn't have a chance, did she? ... Did he stash a murder weapon -- tire iron or crow bar or hammer or PVC pipe in the garage? If so, that's pretty slick -- about as slick as a charge for 1stDM. [​IMG]

    Thanks -- I thought I vaguely remembered about the blood on the bed.

    Mommie sure had a lot of "boo-boos" as the child said... [​IMG]

    Hmmmm... :waitasec: Lamp base -- why?? That seems to be the weapon of choice -- a lamp base is thought to be a possibility in the K. Taft murder, too. Remember, JTF?

    Just because it's there? And the perp *forgot* to bring one??

    Hi borndem,

    If you look back through the pages, you will find a thread I started that was a quiz for members here drawn from something that was written in one of the search warrants about blood on *a* lamp.

    Here it is :) Lamps Lamp Lamps Quiz - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community

    Several reasons for me.

    1- Basilar skull fracture (fairly heavy weapon...beyond a mag-lite)
    2- Since there was attempted strangulation, that was his first mode of attack. When she escaped his grip, the beating began (blood pool in bed).
    She ended on the floor, by the closet doors and was beat on the head 28 times until death.
    3- A SW described a lamp with "blood on the shade".
    4- Many of the wounds were crescent shaped, so whatever the weapon, it had a rounded end. Sure, it could have been a baseball bat, but I lean more with the lamp being the opportunity of choice after the intended strangulation failed (Brad Cooper's mode of attack as well). I picture a candle stick type lamp with a round base....MOO

    I don't remember a lamp being discussed in the trial and I have watched about 90%. Did I miss it in that 10%?
