What did RL know that we don't? There is no way a guy decides that "oh crap! Two kids are missing in my area, and I have a criminal record, so I better get an alibi together!" before they're even found, let alone found dead on his property!!
So what did he know that we don't? RL may not have been the killer, or involved at all. Was someone looking to frame him? Did someone taunt him with evidence of what they'd done before the girls were found by searchers? What happened that RL needed an alibi for the specific time when the girls went missing to when he called his cousin to alibi him?? I'm not buying that this guy didn't know anything about the murders. Are you
This is just my opinion and speculation.
I believe that RL may have heard the murders (which too place about 1/4 mile (400 yards) from his home). He may have even seen the murderer. He apparently had enough negative interactions with LE that he thought to himself "I'd better have a verifiable alibi or LE may try to pin this crime on me." That's why I believe he lined up an alibi.
And he was arrested and jailed--but not for the murder. Under circumstances like these, I sort of understand why he didn't share what he saw with LE. In his eyes, LE weren't the "good guys", that one would want to help. They were a persecuting force to be wary of.
Just my opinion.
