I hate to say it, but this does sound quite plausible to me.......though IF this is the case, perhaps Noreen is truly not "in the know" and is completely bamboozled by the others into believing the Franklin cover-up. Or maybe I just don't want to accept that there is the possibility of delusion on her part.....convincing herself that this is what happened rather than the hard, horrible truth. I can concoct all sorts of odd theories at this point, I still believe though that his case and Eugene Martin's are connected, maybe also that boy named Mark as well. Gahh. What a mess!
I always believed in Noreens theories being possible until I read her book. Sadly , to me the book was so representative of a women with severe mental illness. Have you read the book? I came to the conclusion that as far out as Noreens beliefs were I had always kept an open mind in spite of my leanding toward disbelief. After reading the book I realized this theory was the distorted rantings of a very mentally ill women and I could no longer give it the benefit of the doubt I had given it for years. The book was distrubing to me.
