The ransom note has all of the features of a story written by a Journalism major. Who did it - Foreign Faction What happened - Kidnapping Where - Ramsey home When - Everyone is sleeping Why - Foreign Faction does not like the Ramseys How - Strangulation by garote There are problems with the note: Who - No one was familiar with a foreign faction! What - Kidnapping - body was still in the house! Where - Ramsey home - only people at home were the Ramseys. When - Someone was NOT sleeping that night. Why - No reason found why Ramseys would be disliked for any reason. How - Head blow struck AFTER death had already occurred, overkill. You can only kill someone once. Hmmm, did someone who studied Journalism with Patsy have a maddening grudge with her? Did the Stine tutor NI, study Journalism, did JAR study Journalism? The note is right by the book, just as a teacher would teach a new Journalism class, the technique IS the story. Linguistic analysis is good, but you cannot beat the Who, What, Where, When, Why and How of a story or an overdone ransom note. Even Bruno Haupfman sp? who was convicted of the Lindbergh baby murder, only wrote one page letters or notes. But the recent TV coverage seemed to indicate that more than one person wrote on each of those letters, the handwriting was different. Different hands wrote within the same note/letter in the Lindbergh case. Plus $30,000.00 of the ransom was NEVER found, Bruno only had part of the money. Bruno refused to plead guilty even though he was promised money for his wife to live comfortably after his death. .
