He likely thought that D the roommate heard both violent enounters and as a result called the police. Hence him speeding out of there. I doubt that he slept that night. Either listening to a police scanner if he had one or incessantly refreshing his web browser.
After waiting for so long he probably went to see what the hell was going on.
Yes...and we are not privy to all of it, either. Iirc, a probable cause affidavit simply fleshes out and proves the reason for arrest and indictment? Certainly LE isn't going to provide all the evidence they have?It’s going to be the totality of the evidence, imo.
I don’t know if BK was outside yet during the thud? I believe DM heard the thud before she saw him. I sadly think it may have been Ethan landing on the floor? Moo. The door opening situation you describe is confusing to me, so I’ll pass on that, but I get the feeling it was opened just a crack, thankfully and he was unable to see her, jmo.I wish we knew which way the doors swung into DM's bedroom; did it swing to the short wall or to the longer wall beside the stairs to the third floor? We need to know that so we can figure out which direction DM was looking toward when BK walked right by her. If it swung toward the short wall she'd be looking directly over toward XK's room which would suggest he was walking either toward the stairs leading to the first floor or XK's bedroom. If it swung the other way she'd have a restricted view toward the kitchen and the sliders.
The link I've attached show the layout as opening toward the long wall because a closet is on the short wall. If that is where the closet is located then it definitely makes more sense that way. If it is accurate and BK walked right by her then he was going toward either XK's bedroom or the stairs to the first floor. I think I remember reading that some neighbour walking their dog said the front door was wide open at 8 am.
It is hard to decide what order the sounds DM heard since she opened her door three times to see what the disturbance was.
I'm also curious what that thud sound picked up by a camera at 1112 King. Could it have been BK's car door slamming shut?
Good question! I’m so bad about getting a mental image of whatever I’m reading, then believing that’s the way it is….only to find out I read (or imaged) something that really wasn’t in the words. Like I totally pictured the guy was wearing a ski mask…. But others are saying it wasn’t.Did he leave the footprint on the way out or on his way to kill X and E? I can't remember the PCA giving the direction the print was pointing. It seems more likely he left it coming down from level 3. JMO
Yes. I feel so uncomfortable and bad for this girl. The absolute horror of hearing what she did (and maybe she heard MORE, which LE wants to keep til trial), just speculation but le has been so tight-lipped about much of the case I wouldn't be surprised. It will then hit home with WHY she didn't call/was frozen etc.Agreed - the details of how 911 was called and why someone didn't do it before 11:58 AM is irrelevant. It's focusing on all the wrong things. The murders had already happened by the time BK walked past her. Maybe it was fear, <modsnip> and her emotions were on overdrive - the better question is, what would her calling 911 right after she encountered BK have changed in the grand scheme of:
The answer to both is - nothing. Then the next question is if D was in any way involved in the planning or execution of these murders. LE has repeatedly said the answer is no.
- Her four friends were murdered
- BK planned and committed these murders
Thus any speculation on why didn't she call 911 sooner is irrelevant and D should be left alone. The poor girl will live the rest of her life with this event and I'm sure play Monday morning QB a thousand times - she doesn't need people online to do the same and make it worse.
Yes, I have a chip on my shoulder for anyone who wants to focus on "I would've called 911 if I were her" because you aren't her and weren't in that spot so anyone thinking this, please stop and focus on what matters. The successful prosecution and imprisonment forever of BK.
I think absolutely, a legal expert knows this.You'd think a legal expert would know they're not going to put their entire case in a PCA and that they are still building the case and prosecution. You'd think they'd also include other damning evidence like the obvious stalking and descriptions. But hey, sure, someone who looks like him got his DNA on a sheath and wiped it all clean except for one small spot for detectives to trace. They were also able to get this patsy to drive around 12 times stalking the victims. My lord.
No. BK would share DNA from his father and mother and that DNA combination was found on the knife sheath. His father's DNA is helpful only to confirm 1/2 of BK's DNA called familial DNA.<modsnip>
The DNA from BK's biological father was obtained from their trash bin in PA that FBI confiscated when surveilling the accused.
Good point, 4AM usually resonates with LE and antiterror police, this is usually the time when they preffer to execute high risk arrests simply because vast majority of people are fast asleep then.He plans to be up at 4 a.m. because he thinks no one else will be awake to witness him doing anything.
Rational Choice Theory. I am guessing that, as with most of us, he was most interested in the theories that fit his own worldview.
It's actually a neglected area of criminal conduct, in many ways. Many models of criminality focus on upbringing or genes or recent trauma or anxiety or whatnot. This theory says that criminals are perfectly capable of being rational actors and may make most of their decisions according to logic and reason (based on a criminal premise of course).
We see this theory put forward in some military trials, in which soldiers are accused of war crimes, but at the time, they believed they were making a rational choice supported by their training.
"I am not crazy, I am just a really smart criminal."
I am waiting to hear if he ever owned a knife, any kind of knife. JMOIf he bought it in person at any legit pawn shop or knife store in the last six months or so, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if the person who sold it to him remembers and turns it in. It probably wouldn’t take much interaction with this guy to get some kind of out of the ordinary vibe. Jmo, what do y’all think?
