Because the ligature, sexual assault, and blow to the head were not staged. What’s done is done. This is the starting point of the staging. They had to play the hand they were dealt.
The Ramseys did not stage the scene as IDI. They staged it as an “inside job”.
If you look real close you can see how they tried to pin it on LHP from the get. They may even have staged some elements of the cover-up to point her way.
I think we have been here before. You appear to accept what you get in the wine-cellar at face value.
That's fine and dandy if its real, but its a staged crime-scene, so who knows whats fake and whats authentic?
I disagree. According to the Ramsey version of events they went to bed and when they awoke JonBenet was gone, i.e. an Intruder.The Ramseys did not stage the scene as IDI. They staged it as an “inside job”.
This is why they wrote a RN, it validates the idea of an intruder, otherwise why not sprinkle LHP references in the RN?
Why was something that could be linked to LHP not used to kill JonBenet?
The wine-cellar has not been staged to look as if LHP kidnapped and killed JonBenet, later when in discussion with detectives JR and PR just flung everyone under the bus, including LHP, you can see this in the interviews, I don't recognize that, That's been moved, Somebody moved the suitcase, etc.
If the R's intended the basement as LHPDI why was the broken window open, why was the suitcase down there, why were the gifts partially opened, why was the chair left in front of the door?
Did LHP come through the window, did she escape via the window, if she walked out the door why did she not take JonBenet with her?
Just because JR and PR are willing to fling LHP under the bus after the fact does not mean the wine-cellar staging has been designed with this in mind.
JR even referenced some guy at AG as the potential killer, same tactics as used with LHP.
Nearly everything in the wine-cellar, including JonBenet's clothes, the gifts, the toys, etc are all likely staged.
JR repeated the LHP makeover on Lou Smit, except Lou Smit probably interpreted the basement forensic evidence as it was originally intended, prior to it being amended, e.g. a Psychopathic Intruder.
JR plays along as LS enacts the window entry scene etc. This is JR's MO, he has done it throughout the case, most recently on Dr. Phil with his tale about the flashlight, i.e the murder weapon in the CBS Documentary, and most famously when he found the body !
Remember JR telling Lou Smit Patsy never knew about the gifts in the wine-cellar?
