What if PR and/or JR killed their daughter, by accident or design? To cover it up they planned to take the body to an obscure location and write a ransom note. If there is no body in the house the case for a kidnapping is more probable. There is a possibilty that after they murdered their child they thought of a plan to prove kidnapping. It was their plan to take the body and hide it somewhere away from the house. Maybe John carried the body to his car and put it in the back seat or the trunk. Then they wrote the ransom note. But something happened to prevent JR from driving the body away from the house. Something unexpected that caused the Ramseys to put the strangled body in the wine cellar. Perhaps the body was still in the car when Fleet White first searched the basement and looked into the wine cellar. Somehow John transferred the body from his car to the wine cellar. I can't say how he accomplished this and what happened to their original plan, but it does explain why the ransom note was written. Did LE check the garage and the cars in the garage? Sorry, if this has been discussed before. I just thought that this could have happened and wanted to share my questions.
