The Garrote Originated in Hindu-MUSLIM Kali cult (faction?) called The Thuggee, a silent method of robbery. At some point they began using scarves. And were only connected to the seven muslim tribes for a relatively short time, I gather from these wikipedia articles. Garroting became an execution method in many countries. Franco in Spain was still using it as recently as 1974. Philippines used the method even after it became an American colony in 1898. The Inca emporer was executed this way. Involved a restraining seat, tightning of a device around the neck, and sometimes a blade to cut the spine. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thuggee "Indian cult sometimes described as the world's first mafia." Operating from 1300's to 1900's. The word **** was incorporated into the English language during their occupation there. The Hindu's trace their origin to seven Muslim tribes, in the early beginning, and killing to rob was considered a religious duty by the groups of 10 to 200 infiltrating-the-wealthy Thuggee's, which not all Kali believers were. There was a film, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, 1984, and a few other movies, I never heard of, The Deceivers, 1988, only 17 yrs ago, etc. See the link if interested. It was modified Nov 4, 2005, and has a link to a list of beauty pageant contestants of all ages in alphabetical order, including JonBenet. It's normal, of course, to invite relatives for Christmas, but an interesting coincidence that the FWs' new home was overcrowded this particular Christmas and that two of the guests allegedly belonged to a Kali cult in California, revivals of such cults not being much reported. Was Cox really watching a video or rerun of "Nick of Time", the whole evening, instead of chatting with his host and the other guests? Calls for speculation, I know. "Bind" the sacrifice, and BTK's "Bind, Torture, Kill" just may have been motto's for similar cults? I didn't look up Celtic sacrifices at Wikipedia yet, but at least one internet poster who's studied it has had a theory about revivals of ancient cults. We don't really know for sure there were only 4 people in the Ramseys' house that night. Or that there was any cult, but all the "friends" who received matching scarves for Christmas seem to be lying awfully low. Turned away police at the door on the 23rd when JonBenet had probably attempted a 911 call after PROBABLY being molested. The coroners said an old injury was just about that old. I'm just asking about all this, not a theory, and as I'm always saying, I don't have one. All the facts just aren't in yet, no matter how many years it's been. Many cold cases are a lot older.
