There are a few anomalies with the way this list of questions is written IMO.“Was I or my vehicle clearly seen near the crime scene on the night of the crime?
Are there DNA traces of me at the crime scene?
Are there DNA traces of the injured party in my vehicle?
Are there any other traces of the damaged party in my possession?
And, not to forget, is there a dead body?"
Leaving an "invisible" trail...
The plan and the "disposal checklist"?!
The way CB wrote this letter..."Did I forget anything?!"
It could give clues to how certain he is on certain facts. For example, he isn’t sure if someone saw him or his car 3 May but it’s likely he doesn’t think anyone who knew him saw him that evening… he could be Smithman.
The first question about DNA could show that he wasn’t ever in 5A, could this mean an accomplice handed MM to him at the window - I think he is sure there is no forensic evidence linking him to 5A.
Similarly, and from the first question, he has some confidence that the VW T3 and the Jag cannot link him to the crime. Did he use a different car, an accomplices car, leave on foot or was she removed in a large bag or something. The investigators could be barking up the wrong tree with the cars based on this.
In the fourth question, the word ‘any’ is all encompassing, I don’t think he kept any mementos of MM and he is sure there is nothing physical that can connect him to MM.
The fifth question is very interesting. One word ‘Photos’. Compared to the other questions, there is far less conviction on this one. That he included it, I think shows that he doesn’t think they have one but the way in which it’s asked is kind of uncertain.
The last question he is very sure about. Either, he knows they haven’t looked in the right spot or he knows it can’t be found. I wonder if he would write this the same way after the search at Arade.
This could just be German phrasing coming through in English or I’m finding faces in the clouds but it could show something.
All just an opinion and obviously if CB did commit the crime.
