This is something I have been thinking about and can't make sense of. If the ransom note was written by the R's, then why stage this as a "sexual" assult? The ransom note says nothing about sexual motivations, etc.... It seems they could have staged the murder and used the ransom note (they, being the R's) without staging it as a sexual assult. If this was accidental or anger over bedwetting, then writing a kidnapping for $ note, then why do horrible things to your daughter's body when you don't have to? It doesn't have anything to do wtih the ransom note. And if this was a sexual assult to begin with, then why a long ransom note saying nothing sexual. Am I making sense? :waitasec: Maybe because this was originally a sexual assault/molestation that got out of hand... and the sicko thought he could hide that it was sexual by making it look like a kidnapping gone bad? Maybe whoever did this wasn't smart enough to realize evidence of sexual abuse/assult would be found. I go back and forth on all the theories. Nothing makes sense, and at tyhe same time every theory I read (well, almost every one) makes some sense. But I don't think a sexual assault would have been staged to cover an accident or head injury, because the ransom note said nothign sexual, so why would the R's do that to her body? When I read all the stuff the Ramseys did do, didn't do, and things they said, I think it screams guilt. But when I see the photos of Jon Benet, I think there is no way they could have done this to her even in staging. How could they go on acting okay for years if they had done that? On the other hand, how could they "not be angry" and want to "get on with their lives" right after she was murdered? No way!:doh: Any thoughts?
