NanaNZA, Yes, otg is brilliant, he pops in from time to time. I reckon JonBenet was whacked on the head upstairs, probably her bedroom, maybe Burke's who knows? To factor in the head blow you have to work out if it was : 1. Accidental. 2. Premeditated. 3. Reflex Action. 1. Feeds into the bedwetting theory by Thomas. et al 2. Means it was planned up front to incapacitate JonBenet using Blunt Force Trauma. 3. Suggests it was a spur of the moment response to say silence JonBenet. There is nothing to prevent asphyxiation preceding blunt force trauma, the order of events does not bias the outcome, so it really comes down to how you think it all hangs together? .
