BBM. Our family sees that quite differently, and obviously so did the jury. It is a huge, HUGE weight off our shoulders to simply be able to openly discuss parts of this case now. Let me point out a few things presented in the trial, the main one being: ROGER did not know our MOM. It's that simple. Why would he have ever done what he did, when he didn't even know her? What is his motive? He answered that question himself by showing up on January 18, 2010, and demanding the money owed to him by EK, one of the worst days of my entire life. He had been trying to make contact w/ EK throughout the prior week, calling and even coming to the sawmill. DJ kept track of each phonecall and the phone numbers, and reported them to us and law enforcement. We were all scared because RoHo even went to our Grandma's house, which is on the sawmill property. My specific worry was that if he couldn't get the money from EK, he'd do something to Grandma. She was 84 yrs old and completely helpless sitting there in her house, while EK ran around with his girlfriend, staying in motels in St. Joe because HE didn't WANT to talk to Roger. Let's take a look at this - EK, for being one of the 3 stupidest people on the face of this earth, put himself in the very best position...there was no way on earth he would or could ever actually pay RoHo after RoHo murdered our Mom, not without getting caught. EK was immediately the 1st suspect (rightly) and LE was watching all the accounts involved. If he had given RoHo so much as a penny, it would have been a done deal. Instead, in the few weeks after Mom's abduction, EK gets himself a loaded gun to carry around and tells people he's "worried about someone showing up to get their money". Stupid, stupid man. He never could keep his mouth shut. Then he spends all his time at his girlfriend's house or at out-of-town motels, avoiding a confrontation with RoHo at all costs...leaving his own sick elderly mother completely on her own. He'd go WEEKS without talking to her or walking the few feet from his own house to hers to check on her. DJ and his wife took care of her in every way possible, trying to somewhat shield her from everything that was going on. DJ's wife had taken Grandma to get her hair done on that Saturday that RoHo came to the sawmill - she fortunately wasn't home, or who knows what would have happened. That was a horrible, horrible time for all of our family. We all stayed with each other, we didn't sleep during the night, and at times, the sheriff's office parked a car at DJ's house, worrying that RoHo would come around again. And EK, the man some people have defended thru this...stayed away like the coward he is and always has been. It makes me completely sick to my stomach to hear from RoHo and ReHo that they were "scared". Yeah, scared of getting caught!!! When DJ asked RoHo WHY he was standing there, on Jan. 18, 2010, telling him what he had done, RoHo says, "Well, if Eugene trusts you, I trust you." Obviously in that hour-long conversation had by EK and RoHo on Sept. 30, 2009, they had a lot of specific discussion. RoHo really didn't know DJ all that well, why WOULD he say that to DJ, unless EK had told him that? RoHo also told DJ that EK had told him he had money stashed away to pay RoHo with. He asked DJ if EK was still paying alimony. DJ told him yes, that he had to keep paying, and RoHo said, "No, she's gone, he doesn't have to pay now." Interesting...EK always talked about how you could hide a body here or hide a body there and nobody would ever find them. I don't think he and RoHo did any research on Kansas laws about missing people. They didn't KNOW you don't get to stop paying until it's proven that someone is dead, NOT just missing.
