Hello. When it comes to the faux garrote, there has always been much talk of erotic asphyxiation. Personally, I don't believe that EA had anything to do with this crime. Some reasons: 1 Erotic asphyxiation is often called autoerotic asphyxiation for a reason. It is done for one's own pleasure. How often do we find someone who derives pleasure from witnessing or assisting someone else perform EA? 2 The whole point of EA is to augment orgasm by oxygen derivation. So the point of attempting this with a six year old is what? 3 Two of the three usual suspects, (my favorite two), are not post pubescent males, who account for the majority of EA instances. 4 The device left around JBR's neck is very poorly designed if it was to be intended as an EA device imo. 5 I believe that important items were likely removed from the scene. I surely believe that if the so called garrote was an actual EA device, that it would have been removed as well. 6 EA often comes from JDI's. Where are the people coming out over the years saying - "yeah, when I dated him he was into that". Not a single one to my knowledge. Imo, there is really nothing at all that supports EA.
