    I read the book by the author who later changed her mind and feels Darlie is innocent.

    I have watched the 48 hours show about the case.

    That's it. I do feel Darlie is guilty.

    Would all the experts here help me with a few questions please?

    Don't ask me why but I have a feeling Darlie's large breast implants says a lot about her self esteem and her husbands control. Am I correct?

    Does anyone have a logical explanation concerning the bloody sock.

    Was the motive the fight the night? But what did Darlie hope to gain by doing this to her boys?

    Do most of you believe her husband is directly involved?

    Thank you for taking the time to help me with these questions.

    HiTricia,

    Wow, that covers a lot of ground.

    As a person with breast implants, I can tell you that personally, I did it because I felt inadiquate. I had self doubt issues. I saw men gravitating toward women with bigger breasts. I was young though and I didn't see the bigger picture. I saw 'self gratifying" men move towards the bigger breasted woman, but that's another subject. It could have to do with her feeling worthless, or her implying her dominance. It all depends. She may have felt beneath him without the implants, and empowered over him once she had them. It's funny how men walk around like zombies once you have these puppies.

    A logical explaination for the sock is one that I feel happened. She was wearing them and got blood on them. She had them rolled down.
    Anyhoo, she saw there was blood on them and went off to the alley to ditch it. She tossed one down the storm drain, but the other didn't go in. Thus one being found. One with her DNA on the inside and the boy's blood on the inside. If you have read my timeline, she had more than enough time.

    It's hard to say a motive. I think she was a pretty sad and frustrated girl. Supposedly Darin had been calling her fat, and had taken way too long driving her pretty sister home. What happens from there, I don't know, but the other they both record in their statements.

    Is Darin involved? My opinion is that he knows a hell of a lot more than he is saying. But who knows for sure. He could be a victim with all the rest. If you believed Darlie's defense, he's the mastermind of the whole ordeal. Just depends on who you believe.

    Thank you my dear. This helps a lot.

    Don't get me wrong about the breast implants. I have many friends that have them. My question was concerning the size. Aren't they double E or something like that. Freaky stripper size if you ask me.

    A relative said Darlie got pregnant between Damon and Drake and wanted an abortion, but the only way Darin would agree was if she got the breast implants. She was already large but apparently not large enough for him. He testified that it was his idea and chuckled when they asked him if he was sure.

    I agree with dasgal. I think the sock fell by the wayside when one or more other items were tossed down the sewer near where it was found. The sewer was never checked so we will never know for sure.

    The exact motive is unkown but there was plenty going on to suggest multiple possible motives, from money to anger. I am not one who thinks the fight was that big of deal and i don't believe she did it to get even with Darin or because of jealousy. I don't think Dana has much of a role if any at all in what happened.

    I think there is a strong possibility that he was. If he were innocent, I don't know how he could live with himself not telling what happened.

    No problem. Hang out with us anytime.

    I guess I am one of the ones who is sitting on the fence about her being the murderer, I just find it so hard to believe that darin slept through the brutal attack! I also for the life of me cant figure out what the motive would be either...:waitasec:

    That is because there is a big empty gap......Mom and Dad were supposedly both sleeping when the kids were killed so neither knows anything. One thing is for sure though....the changes around the time of the murders are important. It makes no sense to hire a housekeeper after going months without one right in the midst of a big budgeting crisis, but they did....just two days before the murders, in fact. It is very suspicious that she chose the day of the murders to bring all her precious jewelry downstairs to show said housekeeper because she needs to sell it to raise $10,000.......the exact amount of the boys life insurance.

    But that doesn't make sense, you say, because the funeral cost more. Maybe she didn't think that far ahead. People borrowing from Peter to pay Paul and playing checkers with their bills often use one income meant for one thing on another and play catch up later. Maybe she underestimated the attention it would draw. Or maybe just the opposite. Maybe the crime was so brutal to attract media attention and generosity of the public who often send in donations to families who suffer great tragedy. One thing that stands out to me is that the crime was planned, even if haphazardly, and that it was intended to be gotten away with. That is a resolve she has never weakened in, and that tells me the motive probably had more to do with money than emotional issues.

    No random burglary would go down the way they claim, and the blood evidence points to the inside of the home. If Darin were the true guilty party, Darlie would have rolled over on him by now. He has to be the lesser of the two guilt wise.

    If darin knows anything like alot of people think he is involved I dont get why he hasnt said anything? Or why hasnt darlie turned him in? I understand that would be the end of her chances on getting out, but still most people roll over on each other after a few years.....

    If he says anything, it would implicate himself. If she says anything about him, he could effectively end her dreams of any appellate court overturning her conviction and gaining a new trial.

    I understand all that, but it seems to me that most people when they commit a crime together usually end of snitching on the other. Was darin ever considered a suspect? And if so did he ever say anything that would put up red flags to any of the LE???

    Yes, Darin was a suspect, but the physical evidence did not connect him to the crime scene during the murders. I think the police still suspect him of some involvement, although officially they have said they do not.

    He said many things that created red flags but nothing that might implicate himself. However, just read his testimonies. He was caught in a couple of lies that were obviously intended to cover up for Darlie. So most of question why he would do that if he didn't have something to hide? Those were his kids she murdered/

    Go back to the main screen where all the threads are listed and about a 1/4 of the way down the screen on the left is a button which says New Thread. Hit that and follow the prompts from there (you'll need to give it a subject/title at one point).

    Looking forward to what you have to say.

    A navy SEAL I met some years ago explained to me why O.J.didn't do it-"when you kill somebody with a knife there is blood,and alot of it,it gets all over you,in your hands,in your nails in your hair and everywhere,you can't do somebody like that w/out leaving a blood trail somewhere and you can't just simply wash it off."There is no blood outside the crime scene in the routier case so it points to someone inside the home.The blood evidence is all on Darlie and Darin.Everything in this case file says those parents killed their kids-Darin did the cleanup and subsequently had to corroborate her story and should have been charged as an accessory to the kids murder.That is the only injustice in this case.

    Not necessarily Jim. If the person your stabbing is standing up and fighting back, then I agree. However, if they're asleep, covered with blankets and not hit in an artery, then the blood will soak into the floor, the bedding and the internal organs as did in the case of Devon and Damon.

    Excellent point.Keep in mind this was a hot june night in TX.Damon has been moving and I doubt he was carrying his blankie.Was Devon stabbed thru his blanket while sleeping on the floor?I cannot access any crime scene photos on this computor and don't know.I am certainly not a forensics guy and am far from qualified to dissect that sort of evidence,it just bothers the heck out of me that there's no blood outside the home.Just show me a drop,any tiny speck or something that would give credence to an intruder leaving the scene and I'll straddle the fence again and consider D and D's innocense.
