I'm relatively new to following the details of this case, so please forgive me if this has already been addressed... Last night I was reading the interviews from April 1997, and something struck me as odd (well, many things did, but this is just one) in John's statement: JR: ...So I went back down with Fleet, we looked around for some glass again, still didnt see any glass. And I told him that I thought that the break came from when I did that last summer and then, then I went from there into the cellar. Pull on the door, it was latched. I reach up and unlatched it, and then I saw the white blanket, (inaudible)." And then: ST: And Fleet had talked about earlier being down there, I think alone at one point, and discovering that window. When you say that you found it earlier that day and latched it, at what time of day was that? JR: I dont know. I mean it would have been probably, probably before 10 oclock. ST: Was that prior to Fleets first trip down? JR: I didnt know he was in the basement. I didnt know that. I mean other than that trip with me.ST: And on the trip that you latched the window, were you alone when you went down and latched the window? JR: Yep. ST: And on this, what Im assuming is only your second trip to the basement on the 26th with Fleet, how much time did you spend in the basement before moving to the cellar room door? JR: Not very much time. A minute maybe, or less, probably less than that. ST: And when you moved to that cellar room door to open the door, did you move the tag on the top of the door? JR: Yeah. ST: And did you open the door? JR: Yeah. So my question is this: Do we have official testimony from Fleet White that he did indeed check the wine cellar earlier that morning, when he was in the basement by himself? Because if he did, it seems unlikely that he would have re-latched the door after he closed it, having seen nothing in the room. Close the door, yes. Re-latch it? That would be weird, IMO. Did they dust that latch for Fleet's fingerprints? Because if he did indeed check that room, and later John had to unlatch it, then Fleet obviously latched it, right? It wouldn't even matter if the door was latched to begin with, right? Fleet was there first (unbeknownst to John) and says he opened the door (again, do we know this for a fact?) and John distinctly remembers unlatching the door when they both went back down. Or is John remembering unlatching the door earlier that morning, before anyone else arrived?
