Please see the attachment. The text is included below which I attempted to format: I still have an open mind concerning this case and cannot rule anything out. What was the motive? Accidental death followed by an intentional cover-up (RDI) Molestation (external meaning not within the immediate family) (IDI) Jealousy / vindictive act towards JR with intent to hurt him / his family (IDI) Cover-up for molestation by immediate family member (Could have been premeditated or accidental but some of the events afterwards were to cover-up for what would have been discovered) (RDI) Kidnapping to extort money foiled turning into a murder (IDI) If IDI Was this supposed to be a kidnapping or was molestation the motive? Makes sense: Unknown DNA is valid and relevant Murder of victim / other findings performed by someone detached (not the immediate family) seems more believable considering what was done to JBR Passing of the polygraph test by JR and PR Does not make sense: Length of the ransom note (if it was written after the murder). It could have been written prior with the intent of a kidnapping or to confuse (but it really does not make sense) Why actually leave the ransom note when the victim was killed on the premises and left behind? Why wasnt the RN taken after the murder? Why indicate that it is a kidnapping but then perform the activities that happened in the basement? It seems as though it was quite a risk. Pineapple in digestive track who fed her the pineapple? Evidence of historical sexual abuse likely was caused by someone else (unless this person was close to the family and had done this prior - unlikely) JR and PR passed the polygraph test If RDI If it was an accident: Makes sense: Hurried / disheveled / staged crime scene as a cover-up IMO, the likeliest scenario if RDI would be BDI as PR or JR likely would not have covered for the other under the pressure if one of them had done it. If it was accidental, PR would be 2nd on my list of suspects because I dont believe that it would have been JR if it was accidental. Pineapple was a snack before bed which extends the timeline of how long JB was awake meaning there would be less time for someone external PR wearing the same clothes as the day before because she was up all night assisting with the staging Does not make sense: If it was initially accidental, why not call 9-1-1 and try to save her vs. hitting her in the head or strangulation (not sure which came first) to kill her unless she was already dead when her parents learned about the tragedy. JR and PR would know that either they would be found guilty or the responsible party would never be found (because it was them). This would haunt them for the rest of their lives. Why the cover-up (unless it was to cover for the prior sexual abuse or what happened near her death)? If it was premeditated: IMO, it would have been BR (because of something like jealousy or aggressive sexual tendencies) or JR (2nd most likely on my list in this scenario because of something such as molestation). If BDI, a decision was made at some point to stage. I cannot believe that JR or PR would have constructed or arranged for the strangulation device. IMO, JB would have been dead when they found out for this scenario. If JR did it, I dont think that BR or PR knew what happened. Other thoughts: Nobody knows how they would react in the situation encountered by the R family. Put yourself in this position If you woke up, your daughter was missing, and the police started asking questions about what your son was doing the night before, it might seem reasonable to get him away from the questioning, etc. because obviously he had nothing to do with it. On the other hand, if BDI, it also would make sense to get him out of there if you were part of the cover-up. If you were JR or PR, had nothing to do with the murder and felt as though you were the primary target of the investigation, would you be so frustrated that the police were not looking for other suspects that you would get your own group involved to ensure that you were protected? It seems reasonable if everyone was pointing at you because of the circumstances and lack of evidence pointing to an outsider. I really want to believe that JR, PR, and BR had nothing to do with it. Due to the description of the crime scene, I cannot see how anyone could do that to a family member unless a person was too young to comprehend even then it does not seem likely. If BR grew up without issues, it seems hard to imagine that he would have had anything to do with it although I do not know how much a 9 year old can justify / reconcile and the long-term impacts of something as horrific as this would have been.
