    Maybe because the dogs, even though drugged in some way, were on the front porch.
    And, if anyone had heard noises, shots, and had come looking, that person would likely be out front.
    Back exit provides deep woods for cover or to flee.
    All above is speculation.

    Do we know whether the back doors were locked? It just doesn't make sense to me that the killer or killers would exit through a window. One thing that comes to mind, and it is not a pleasant thought, but it is possible that a victim could have opened the window, trying to escape the killer or killers.

    Could also mean that they were typically up and about before she got there to do chores--going outside and unlocking a door.

    That's a good guess. Doesn't the last bit (again, I don't hear "good job") sound like a child's voice?

    If you want to see something that will further break your heart, go to Dana Rhoden FB, March 22 and 21.

    photo of interior of her new home
    photo of CR jr cleaning ceiling fan
    read brief captions/comments

    It seemed wrong to see this and I said a little prayer.
    This case is very hard on all.
    Imagine LE and Crime Scene people dealing with this daily, constantly.

    That's the one thing I can't figure. If you drag someone, normally, you would grab them from behind, under the armpits OR you would grab them by their heels, elevate the legs and pull.

    How did the bodies end up on their bellies in the backroom? Dragging a body face down would be the hardest way to accomplish a drag.

    eta: not that I'm an expert on dragging dead bodies or anything :confused::

    The average trailer window is 30" wide. There are no porches to even stand on to ease entry into the windows. I'd think most adult males (if in fact it were a male(s) who did this) would have a hard time getting through those windows w/o, at the very least, something to stand on. I'm leaning more toward the windows were open for a cross breeze. It was warm that day and trailers get pretty hot (it was also not very cold that night if I remember correctly).

    The hardest way to drag them is the way in which they were found. The easiest is to pick them up, under their arms, and lift them as high as you can, and then drag. For an example of dealing with dead weight, if anyone out there has had a toddler throw a temper tantrum, and go limp on them, they become about 30 pounds heavier when you try to pick them up.

    Maybe, but my recollection from when our family dog got sprayed in the face by a skunk was that the howling was pretty profound. People would be accustomed to the dogs barking at things and sleep through it. But howling in pain might be a cause for alarm.

    I'm sticking with the steak, or sedative theories.

    It may have been common practice for CR1 and FR to leave their doors unlocked (per BJM interview) but maybe DR's was locked so they knocked. Early morning hours/ I would think it is almost a certainty she asked who it was before she opened the door, then again maybe that was a forced entry.

    Clarence Rhoden's prison admission date was 4/7/1998 for sexual battery, just over 18 years ago. I don't know the age of his victim or when exactly the crime was committed, but that might give someone a motive to wipe out the entire family ... a revenge killing long in the making? Not sure if this theory brought up in any of the hundreds (thousands?) of prior forum posts?

    My take is that after she called 911 she went to check on the others.

    I do think this is important. I want to know who the victims were.

    Wow, and then one month later, to the day, and they were gone. How sad. :(

    Okay, now to me (with headphones) I'm almost sure she says, "Oh Jesus, Frankie!" and is crying.
