The location in the house the head blow took place is very significant because that reveals what was happening at that time and probably reveals the motive for the head blow/why it happened. It might also reveal the weapon used to inflict the head blow or eliminate certain items from being that weapon (as those items would not be in that location TO be used as the weapon). Additionally, the weapon used may indicate the location in the house where the head blow was inflicted. For example, if a golf club was the weapon, then the location was where the golf club was normally stored: ie the basement. If a toilet rim or faucet inflicted the head wound, then an upstairs bathroom was the location. If the Maglight flashlight was the weapon, this indicates the location was somewhere a flashlight would be needed, such as a dark room even though all rooms in the Ramsey house had lights, including the basement rooms. (My thought is that the flashlight was not the head bash weapon but was just staging to support IDI). Consensus is that the strangulation death happened by the paint tray, outside the cellar door. Now this is significant, when you think about it, and leaves us with two possibilities, as follows: The head bash took place upstairs, and then JB was carried down to the basement afterwards. In this case, the activity that led to the head bash was taking place upstairs. Why would they bring their dying daughter down to the basement from upstairs? What sense would that make? It is not logical for them to do that. The head bash took place in the basement. In this case, the activity that led to the head bash was taking place in the basement. Why would this activity be taking place in the basement? To keep it a secret from other family members. If their daughter was already in the basement when the head blow was inflicted, then it would make perfect sense to leave her down there for the later strangulation. So to me it makes sense that everything happened in the basement: The activity leading up to the head bash, the head bash, and finally the strangulation.
