icedtea4me, Bashing her with what? So like Patsy tied the knots and told John to murder his own daughter? Sounds a bit alike a complicated Greek drama? Nobody can say your scenario never happened, but it does not seem to be matched up with the forensic evidence, e.g. where is JR's touch-dna on JonBenet's underwear, person, etc? Patsy knew something was going on between JonBenet and Burke with all their bedroom sharing, do you reckon she repressed this too? Patsy whacked JonBenet for wetting the bed. Patsy whacked JonBenet for innapropriate relations with John. Burke whacked JonBenet because she stole some of his pineapple. Anyone see the pattern here? Its explanation by visual cartoon dynamics, easy on the brain. .
