In re-reading the few public documents that are available, nearly two years later I still come back to the timeline. The times as we know them simply allow so little "wiggle room" for the murderer. I thought perhaps we could re-hash them again. When you look at them, it just seems so obvious that Raven HAS to be the perp, in my opinion anyway. That said, why then has there been no arrest? Are we missing something obvious? Certainly the Durham Police Dept (DPD) has a wealth of information to which we are not privy, but even so, with the "factual" information that we DO have, something just seems amiss .. The "factual" timeline: - About 7:00pm "(Janet) Last Known to be Alive." (This is from the Medical Examiners (ME) Report of Investigation.) - Around 8:30pm "Raven Abaroa left the house to play in an indoor soccergame " (This is from the DPD press release announcing the Sund/Carrington reward.) It is worth nothing here that the 8:30 time contrasts with the 7:00 time from the ME report. Seemingly the "last known to be alive" time would then be 8:30. As was posted at the time, more than likely one can extrapolate that the 7:00 time was confirmed from two sources Raven AND the hometeacher(s). The 8:30 time is based on one thing only Ravens words. Accordingly, perhaps the ME used the 7:00 time as it was the only one that could be confirmed. (Does this mean that DPD was questioning Ravens story from the beginning? The timing?) - About 10:50pm "Onset of injury or illness." (From the ME report.) - About 10:55pm "Death." (From the ME report.) - 10:58pm Raven calls 911. (Various reports DPD spokesperson, Search Warrant) - Around 11:00pm " Raven found (Janet) stabbed to death " (DPD press release (see above)) What we DONT know: What time Raven left the house, aside from his word. What time Raven arrived to play soccer. What time Raven left the soccer game. What time Raven arrived home. Another thing to note. The Search Warrant narrative reads as follows: "On April 26, 2005 at 10:58pm uniform patrol officers responded to 2606 Ferrand Drive ." The property collection pages of the warrant reference "Time Reported 10:58." One can surmise that the uniformed officers most likely arrived at the house fairly quickly, but in fact we do NOT have the exact time of their arrival, simply that they responded to a 911 call that came in at 10:58. We DO know that the first investigator arrived at the house at 11:50pm (per warrant narrative.) This is relevant when one thinks about the timing of Raven being in the house how long was he there before calling 911, and who much time did he have prior to the first responders arriving critical info as it regards to possibly getting rid of a murder weapon perhaps? So, to analyze a little "About" is a big word in this context. When the ME uses that term do they mean a 10 minute timeframe, a 30 minute timeframe, hours? We have never known/seen the reports of the first responders, as far as their observations body condition, body temp, body sounds, etc., etc. These are all certainly things that would aid in determining TOD. We DO know a fact here Raven called 911 at 10:58pm. Per Ravens words: He arrived home, the house was unlocked, he came inside, went upstairs, kissed Kaiden, and then apparently went into the dark office/bedroom where he found Janet kneeling on the floor. He turned on the light, saw the blood, rolled her over and saw that she not breathing he thought she had been shot and called 911. Guessing working backwards from the 911 call - Raven would have been in the house, what, at least 5 minutes, most likely more (in order to come in, go upstairs, kiss Kaiden, find Janet, etc.,) before calling 911. Even at a minimum of 5 minutes, the clock is then at 10:53pm. Remember, ME says onset of injury was "about 10:50pm" and "death about 10:55pm." If we take those times at face value the timing is incredible! With the 5 minute min scenario the murderer stabs Janet at 10:50 Raven is in the house at 10:53 Janet dies at 10:55 Raven calls 911 at 10:58. So using those times the murderer is upstairs, stabs Janet at 10:50, gets back downstairs and out of the house, PRIOR to Raven coming IN the house at 10:53. Possible? I suppose. Likely? Hmmmm. Now granted, Im extrapolating a lot of timing things here. But just how "off" can the ME report really be? Would they pinpoint the "about" times that closely without good reason? Surely the ME writing those times on that report would know that at some point those times would most likely have to be justified in a courtroom. Ok, a lot of speculation for sure. But the question remains, based on what we DO know, based on the times we DO have wouldnt those things be enough to arrest Raven, or, not? Is it possible to make an arrest based on the "fact" that there is no evidence anyone else COULD HAVE killed Janet in the given timeframe? Ok, sure, someone could have killed Janet and quickly slipped out of the house, in record time, unbeknownst to Raven, but is that really likely? Given these ideas there must be something more. Is the timing that off? Can an arrest not be made just on the simple facts of time? I have no idea. Someone? I recall the Michael Peterson case. Michael was at the house, no question. Michael had Kathleen's blood all over him, no question. Michael says he came in and FOUND Kathleen at the bottom of the stairs. The defense alleged that Kathleen was the victim of nothing more than a fall. The ME thought otherwise. No factual murder weapon was ever found. So when you think about it the case went forward on the merit that no one else COULD HAVE done it. Sure, there were a myriad of other factors involved, ie., past events, lifestyle issues, money, etc., things that in reality dealt with MOTIVE, but as far as BRINGING THE CHARGE there was timing. While Michael was sitting outside having a cigar, someone else was in the house and beat Kathleen? She fell? All in a relatively short timeframe prior to Michael coming in the house and "finding" her. I know, the cases are very different, the facts are very different. But it remains that Raven puts himself in 2606 Ferrand at 10:58pm, at the very latest. Unless we are to believe that the ME report is simply vague and ambiguous, then Raven murdered Janet, period .or .the phantom murderer simply slipped out of the house, unbeknownst to Raven - no visuals, no sounds (boy, Id LOVE to know how someone, presumably in a hurry, tiptoes down a staircase, even carpeted, and makes no sound!), simply POOF and disappears into the night, oh, and with the "missing laptop" in hand I suppose. Lets remember a key phrase used by DPD from almost day one "investigators do not believe it was a random act." IMO, the Durham Police Department knows full well who murdered Janet Abaroa. My guess is theyve known from day one. Yet, as we all know, knowing and proving are two entirely different things. IF Raven cant be arrested on the timeline alone, somethings missing. What that missing link is remains to be seen .
