I know I keep harping on this embezzlement business, but for the life of me, I think it all connects together, albeit in some convoluted fashion. I mean come on, do we honestly think that Raven gets caught at work, Janet quits out of humiliation, that at home that night, things are just as normal as can be??? Speculation of course, but, surely Janet has a few JUSTLY warranted words for Raven, even with her humble nature...again, pure speculation. And accordingly, the poor girl quits a job she really enjoys, leave people she enjoys, and has to start from scratch looking for a new job...all the while, with a young baby at home. Who's fault is this? Raven's, pure and simple. I know if I were in that situation I would have been FURIOUS. But, that's me. So over those next couple of months, it's Janet who finds a real job. And Janet that starts working. No doubt there were bills to be paid. Diapers to be bought. Doctors visits to be paid for Kaiden. Car payments. On and on and on. Oh, and of course on top of everything else, they now have Raven's legal issues to deal with... a lawyer has to be hired. There may be fines and other court costs on the horizon. Maybe restitution to Eurosport. Who knows. Again, all speculation for the most part. So on that dreaded evening, who knows what could have happened. But, I maintain that life on Ferrand Drive was probably not all rosy those months from January to April. It seems from info we've had posted here that things just may have started to spiral out of control sometime last summer or in the fall...when the embezzlement presumably began. Was Janet's death a culmination of months of financial chaos...instability...turmoil? Hopefully we'll know soon. But to me, even with the chaotic life Raven led, etc., the ultimate whirlwind of events, starting last summer through December 2004, the period of the Eurosport embezzling, was the beginning of the end... once he was caught, he says he was trying to get his life together. Maybe he was. Who knows. But, in the short term, the bills were still due....mouths still needed to be fed.... And selling of assets can sometimes not be a quick fix...it often takes time and patience. I still find it hard to believe that Raven acted alone with regard to the embezzlement. It is speculation, purely, but I believe he had help - a family member or members or maybe a friend. But someone. Ok, so I vented and rambled on, somewhat incoherently I think. But, Janet's murder and the embezzlement are linked, I'm convinced of it. I don't mean to imply a DIRECT connection, but more so a connection as far as state of mind, family life, emotional state of being, financial stability, etc. Ok, off the soapbox for now. And if you're reading this: I'm looking for you Mr. or Mrs Embezzling Accomplice(s).... and if I don't find you before, maybe I'll hear more about you in Orange County District Court on the afternoon of Friday, June 10. 2005!
