This is in answer to a question I was asked by Nuisanceposter on another thread as to why I find FW so suspicious. When I first read the newspaper reports of the murder I was certain, from prior knowledge of such activities, that this was the result of the victim having been abused by a group of pedophiles and that the murder had been covered up to hide the existence of this particular group. I did not have access to detailed information on the case until I read PMPT 3 years after the murder where I hoped I would be able to identify my suspected pedophiles. The two that shone out like beacons were FW and Santa with backup support from Dr B. Going through PMPT the first thing that is strange is that he was the first person along with, not just his wife, but two other members of his family! JF arrived very soon after but his wife took another 15 minutes to arrive, so she obviously took another 15 minutes to get ready, which I find highly normal. I find it curious that in the case of the W's, CG who took the call, managed to wake four people who had to get ready in what must have been a matter of only 2 minutes. I don't think they could have managed this unless they were already awake and dressed waiting for the call. And why the need for four people? Two of them hardly knew the Ramseys. I would have thought it would have been a lot more likely that they would have stayed behind to help with the children, this is unless FW needed backup support at the crime scene. The next thing you find is that as soon as he arrives, FW goes down to the basement and looks into the cellar room yet supposedly doesn't see the body, for goodness sakes. (I actually think he DID see the body but that's another story). JF also got to the house early on. Did he go straight down to the basement? No, he stayed close to John and Patsy trying to do his best to help them, which I think was the normal thing to do. The other thing I found very strange was the fact that all during that morning FW was apparently taking copious notes. There must have been a reason for this odd behavior. I think he was writing down everything that happened and everything that was said so he could concoct a believable story of why this had happened - a story that was as far from the truth as he could make it and yet one that would fit in with all known facts. After the body was found FW rushed upstairs to the study and dialled some numbers. Then he hung up and screamed for SOMEONE ELSE to ring an ambulance! So what number was he ringing if it wasn't an ambulance? I think he was calling his mate JE at BPD but then realized others at the house would overhear the conversation if JE answered the call, to avoid this FW had to hang up immediately. Then when the body was laid on the floor and everyone else was focused on comforting John and Patsy and looking on in horror at their dead daughter, FW rushed down to the cellar again to check on a piece of duct tape! It looks like the duct tape was of great significance to him and I would like to know what it was. It certainly seems like a strange thing to have done at the time. He was John's best friend, why wasn't he by his side comforting him or at least staying there with the group of people which I think would have been the natural thing to do? Why did he feel the need to rush down to the basement again? Apparently he later went down to the basement for a second time after the body had been found. What was he looking for that time? Suspicious I say. Then on the day of the funeral, by which time John and Patsy had hired their own lawyer and investigator, FW had a serious argument with John because of this. Now I can understand that perhaps he might have not agreed with John that this was the best course of action to take and as his best friend might even have a bit of a heated discussion about it, but to become furiously, aggressively ragingly angry about it was just so inappropriate, it was a funeral after all, and a child's one at that. Surely any one with any sensitivity would have left a discussion of that nature with the grieving father to some other time, if indeed he had to have one at all. It seems most peculiar to me, it seems like FW was so worried about something, something that was so important to him that he lost all sense of proportion. I can only surmise that it was because of some involvement in JonBenet's death on his part that he was desperate be kept hidden. I think FW was worried that John's private investigator might discover something that he didn't want him to. I think FW wanted only BPD only to be the ones investigating the crime because he could trust John Eller to pin the murder on someone who had nothing to do with FW's little pedophile group. According to PMPT other people at the funeral noticed FW's odd behavior. Most of them considered it to be very out of character. Some of them even considered he might have had some involvement in JonBenet's death. During this argument FW even had his hands at John's face, he was so furious. Really odd. Another thing he was furious with John about was that John had agreed to be interviewed on CNN. Now this is extremely curious, because according to John it was FW who had actually arranged for them to appear on CNN. Why the complete turnaround? And why did it instill such fury in him? I think the reason was that when FW first arranged the interview the police were still treating the murder as an aborted kidnapping or an attempt to 'get at' John and believed they could still pin it on someone at Access Graphics. But in between times Eller must have told FW that they could no longer pursue that line of inquiry because it just wasn't going to work. I imagine FW would have been absolutely frantic by this stage because this meant that he now had no-one other than John himself to pin the murder on if he was to keep the investigation away from 'the group' and he didn't want John and Patsy to go on national television because they might gain some public sympathy and it would be harder then to make people believe that John could be responsible. Then there was the 911 call a few days before the murder on the 23rd. FW's explanation as to why he dialed that number was pathetic IMO. I don't believe he was worried about his mother's medication at all, I think a more likely explanation was that he had grabbed the phone from a child who had dialed the number in an attempt to contact police about some child molestation taking place in one of the more remote corners of the house. There was more suspicious behaviour as the investigation proceeded but this post is already too long I will have to start another thread for that.
