fridaybaker, Yes I reckon Patsy wrote the Ransom Note. I agree, Patsy was never a career criminal so avoiding forensic deposits will not be her forte. Here is the catch,if Patsy had left JonBenet in her bedroom,then any fibers linking Patsy can be attributed to her putting JonBenet to bed, etc. For Patsy this was the best staging strategy, moving JonBenet to the basement and depositing her fibers all over JonBenet, e.g.knots in ligature, sticky side of duct tape on JonBenet's lips, etc simply magnifies Patsy's role. Is this not the opposite of what should be intended? Your perspective might be described as highlighting what you consider to be transparent regarding Patsy, nothing wrong with that. Could this lead you to make erroneous conclusions about Patsy? If you think not, you should read or listen to Talking to Strangers by Malcolm Gladwell, its guaranteed to explain why Default To Truth as Gladwell describes it and alternatively termed as Naive Realism, i.e. its how we tend to view things the majority of the time, myself included, matters wrt Patsy. .
