    Cannot blame Websleuths, he was never arrested for this before and there was no way of knowing. Looking back in hindsight, there may have been some signs, however, hindsight is 20/20. Dave is responsible for his own actions. My interactions with him were always positive and I admired his passion on the Ramsey case. Now, it seems that "passion" may not have been for pure purposes.

    Don't blame yourself Tricia.

    Websleuths cannot do extensive background checks on posters or even predict their future actions.

    There are some people that are OBSESSED with talking about her private area. I don't see that so much on WS, but on a lot of conspiracy sites and their theories are so strange, complicated, convoluted and "out there." Always centers around sex. It seems as if they get a kick out of talking about her in such a graphic, sickening way and they disguise it as "caring about children."

    There are some strange people attracted to this case, on both sides. The majority IMO are following, analyzing and sleuthing the case with good, pure, intentions. They want to see a killer punished. Others... the small minority, have some more sickening motives I don't want to get into... Think John Mark Karr.

    I’m a little nervous writing this because I enjoy your forum and don’t want to be a “former member”. I’ve respected the No Intruder rules for the most part. However, that doesn’t mean I believe there is no intruder.

    For the first time perhaps since JonBenet was murdered Boulder Justice has a grip on it, and nobody is leaking information. The investigation is open and ongoing. The crime has not been solved. And as far as I can tell it hasn’t been swept under the rug. We simply don’t know.

    You seem like a nice woman and you have built a pleasant discussion forum that attracts a lot of nice people. For the most part, I see people seeking out and finding other people to talk to and curious about what’s going on. Congratulations on your business and I feel for your trust issues.

    But that’s why I’m writing this. As one business woman to another, and also as a former Telecom Fraud Analyst, I believe the different rules you have only for the JBR forum; The No Discussion of the Intruder rule; Just could be attracting sexpredators to your site.

    It was a bit of a safe haven for SuperDave. Think about it, what sexpredator is going to argue the Intruder Theory? Do you think a manipulator is going to say what he’s really up to? No, he’s going to make you agree with him that he has all the answers. And he won’t quit until he does.

    Last night in Boulder the new City Council and County Commissioners we’re sworn in for the year. I couldn’t help but think they had something to do with The very recent announcement of Burke and CBS settling their lawsuit... That it would be announced before the new session began. They want the media to go away. I think we are stuck with not knowing the terms.

    Nobody has all the answers anymore. Personally, I hope a Familial DNA Search is underway and we will have answers someday.

    Good Luck.

    @Tricia - please don't close the thread yet - he has court hearings coming up - like today according to my notes.

    Thursday, January 10th:
    *Preliminary/Arraignment Hearing (Federal Charges) (@ 3pm ET) – VT - David J. Hughes (aka SuperDave) (37) arraigned (12/21/18) on 1 count of aggravated sexual assault of a victim less than 13 yrs old (Felony 1) & 1 count of lewd & lascivious conduct with a child (Felony 3). Hughes pleaded not guilty to both charges prior to his arrest on federal charges. Plead not guilty. Unsecured $5K appearance bond. Released. Rebooked on 12/27/18; in custody.
    Bond restrictions: not to use electronic devices, like a phone, to take pictures of people or access the internet. Curfew 10pm to 6am in residence.

    John Mark Karr? Or any pervert who fantasizes about having been such an intruder. Also a manipulator may simply be prone to go with the popular theory, tell people what they want to hear.

    I can't speak for Tricia, but I think her stance is, in part, about avoiding the name dropping of random "suspects" that are most likely innocent.

    But there is perhaps a concern in the event there is an intruder out there who did commit this crime. They would likely feel both empowered and amused in a community where it was shunned to infer the that the Ramseys' were innocent.

    I think it's a major stretch to to consider SD as a suspect here, for various reasons. But I will say that when I read the ransom note, it reads to me like it was written by a teenager. And reading SD's personal blog, it seems he is a movie buff with a strong interest in wrestling (and the JBR case, obviously).

    An interesting thought, is that "foreign factions" are and were a thing in wrestling, despite that the phrase is otherwise nowhere to be found in pop culture (I think).

    Reading his posts it seems he wants to vilify those who molested and/or killed, but would then almost try to defend those who molested and/or killed her. I came across this cached/removed post from Reddit, where he basically tries to convince that JBR's murderer was not cruel nor sadistic...

    (looking through SD's posts has me reading up on this case again, and I regret that because this case is one giant black hole)

    I’m only on page 14 of this thread, but I have to ask.

    Who is the girl on the cover of his book? I had a creepy feeling when I saw it.

    Wow. My nemesis is arrested for this. Not surprised at all. Him and I used to go at it on this case hard years ago. Now I can see why he had all those twisted RDI theories. He was a hero to many RDI's posting here.

    He may have fooled some people into viewing him as a " hero " ( sociopathic predators seem to have a knack for that) but the "hero" has since taken a long, long fall.

    OMG

    I can't believ this and only came here to check the new news on Olivia.

    I met SD on another site, I forget which one now- and told him he should post here. I don't know if it was because of me that he came here but I do remember telling him WS was way better than the site he was posting at.

    He even sent me his pic in the mail here to Australia, I held onto it for years but don't think I have it anymore.

    Blown away.

    West Rutland man accused of sexually assaulting a child

    The pic he sent me, he was 14 years younger. He had a real baby face- and you could kinda tell from his pic- he would have been socially awkward.
    I don't know why he sent me his pic- I guess we were just friends and he wrote me a letter. I didn't reply....no reason probably just laziness.

    Just wow. He was so into this case...and justice for JonBenet. Just wow.

    JMK presented as the murderer wanting to confess so I see that a little differently. I also think maybe all of us have considered that IF SD was the teenager living up the street from the Ramseys, well maybe...I just don’t want to say that out loud.

    I hope the thread doesn’t close because I would like to follow what becomes of him. He was alluding to having inside information on the Ramsey case which was difficult to believe mostly. But his obsession with the JBR case was abnormal.

    I don't think it was abnormal as such, there were quite a few posters in the old days that were obsessed with the case.

    One still posts here.

    SDs obsession seems abnormal to me. That’s not to say others would be considered the same. SD seemed overly concerned with JBs sexual assault. Something I noticed before I read about this. All of us are a bit obsessed with this case, but most of us are normal I think.

    Agree, and as discussed upthread sometimes we just get that feeling/vibe something is just a little bit off about someone who is just too obsessed, IMO.

    Fair enough, but from this we get that no one knows who is normal and who's not.

    He really was an expert on every aspect of the case- I never noticed that he was overly concerned about the sexual assault. But it was a huge part of the case- according to experts there were signs of chronic sexual abuse, though I don't think the autopsy report stated that. And she ended up dead with a paintbrush used in the garrotte and evidence of her being penetrated with it. It's hard not to dwell on that.

    He was never an expert on this case.
