I'm not going to try and tie ALL the evidence in here this is a possible motive theory. I posted another about Darin being the suspect somewhat along the same lines. Darlie and Darin have now admitted 2 important clues that blew my mind and made me say HMMM.. I wonder. They fought and Darlie asks Darin for a divorce. During the fight Darlie inserts her arm into a door that Darin is trying to close. Darin sees her arm and doesn't want to break it so he only puts enough pressure on it to keep the door closed which bruises her arm. This door close stunt actually occurs twice that night, she uses her other arm the next time as she realizes her other arm is already hurt. They fight about what most couples fight about Money and Sex. Darin tells her she doesn't give him the attention he deserves since the boys and housework take up so much her time she doesn't have the same energy she used to. Darlie reminds him he doesn't have as much money as he used to either each one blaming the other for whatever slight they feel. At one point Darlie accuses Darin of an affair since she has done a lot to keep his attention, she has had implants, she wears makeup and does her hair almost everyday, she wears sexy clothes to keep his attention he never wants her and she feels it is because he is having an affair. Darin gets mad and leaves. Since no one saw him drive away he may have gone for a walk or he might have left in a car just because no one saw him drive away doesn't mean he didn't. Darlie is mad still and gets her boys ready for bed deciding to wait up till Darin returns. She has already asked for the divorce but regrets it. She gathers her jewelry as she knows she will have to sell it to survive. She thinks about ways of getting Darin back (revenge not reconcilliation,) The fight and Darin's absence has upset the boys and Darlie repeatedly puts them back in their rooms. They finally wear her down and say it is too hot and she allows them to sleep downstairs. Drake has been asleep in his crib. They all fall asleep in the RR room. Darin comes back and sees them asleep and quietly goes upstairs. Drake needs a bottle and he gets one feeds Drake and returns the bottle to the kitchen sink. Darlie half asleep only dreams she sees an intruder when Darin comes in. When she awakes she still isn't aware Darin came home and she is scared from her dream. She gets a knife to check it out. Now she is convinced Darin is having an affair and she decides to stage a burglary. The intruder dream she just had gave her the idea. She cuts the screen and decides against it she has no way to hide objects supposedly taken. She decides Darin can find the boys and her dead when he arrives home that would forever make him feel bad for having an affair, leaving her and the boys that night and going to his lover. She stabs the boys stages a little struggle next to the couch and other things too, and then lays down on the couch and cuts herself. Stabs her arms and throws the knife down on the carpet. She lays there and waits to die. She actually saved her own life by laying there as she closed off her own wounds enough to not bleed to death before the youngest child actually does come to her for aid. When Darlie does start screaming her plan was for neighbors to come to her aid and she needed to start screaming before she went outside. Darin comes downstairs and she realizes he is home. I didn't include ALL the evidence but could the evidence fit in here anyway the important part the why she did it and how she came up with intruders is my theory. It may have progressed just the way the prosecutions says with a few exceptions y'all may not agree with. 1. The couch did have her blood on it. 2. The box of important papers was out cause she was looking not for LIFE insurance papers but the CAR insurance claim info on the jag when she couldn't find it she had to rule out getting Darin back that way. 3. The wineglass broken 4. THE PILLOW she did bleed on it photos of it do exist in MTJD One of the reasons I have such a hard time about believing the prosecutions side the way it is now is because it forgets something I have found true in almost every case. A lie is often constructed AROUND the truth. The most convincing liars build their lies around the truth not totally different from the truth. In other words even a lie as some truth to it. I've tried to look at all the evidence from both sides those brought out by Mama Darlie too. I've tried to see both sides of the case innocent and guilty each side is using DIFFERENT EVIDENCE. to prove their claims. I've tried to look at ALL those pieces to put the puzzle together. I didn't care any longer who provided or used it in trial or came up later. If it is verifiable - I know y'all don'y trust anything Mama Darlie has to say but trust in the evidence she might have actually discovered herself just because she says it points somewhere else doesn't mean it does. Look at both theories I posted Darin - either alone or with a little help or Darlie alone. I haven't posted my they did it together theory yet either. I have used the 2 new clues that Darin and Darlie provided the fight and the possible insurance scam on the house and the jag. The fight could be Darlie's subconcious attempt to confess it would explain her motives. The scam confession could be Darin's subconcious attempt to continue to cover up. The lie containing some truth to it. If it really was solely intruders then Mama Darlie has that angle covered already and her new DNA tests and fingerprint analyst would prove it. We really don't need to BEAT A DEAD HORSE as so aptly pointed out by another poster. I just thought a fresh perspective on the matter might make a difference. If Darlie did it then I think I would believe revenge more out of her than obsessive money hunger I did know her. If Darin did it then someone else needs to be on trial. If they did it together then maybe it was to make a fresh start- removing some of the burden of work on Darlie and money on Darin the fight being what triggered them. Notice how short my together theory is.
