Okay so bear with me, because I doubt this is going to be a popular theory here for obvious reasons... but what if both the introduction of the weapon to the scene and the first shot fired did not come from NO but instead came from 10yo London? Might explain some of the weirdness at the way the sheriff is so reluctant to call this definitively on who committed the homicides, and why London’s father’s attorney made such an odd and out-of-place statement that “Nobody is saying that London did anything wrong...” (for which to do so would be a terrible emotional bridge for a parent to have to cross, but would also have implications for lawsuits he’s commenced and life insurance policies that may already have been paid out - and we know at least one policy has been but just not whose it is). Example (hypothetical): London angry at cancelled audition which mom signals is her final ruling on the matter via her communication to friend’s mother at 6:45pm; Arguing continues, anger builds; Phonecall by London and NO to “father“ HB after which NO goes “firecracker” on London for trying to get her dad onside with audition permission after she’s already said no; NO in a rage says something along the lines of “well he’s not your real father anyway so what he says doesn’t count”; More upset, confusion, extended arguing, anger, possibly text messages (London using NO’s phone to message as it is handy or it’s possible at that age she didn’t have her own like Alexa did?); Calls that go unanswered made on NO’s phone to CW’s mom (a grandma figure, “help, what do I do” kind of stuff) by London (or by Alexa who is increasingly agitated by the quarrel she is witnessing) and then to 911 (who are still not revealing who exactly they spoke to that night and what was said on the one 911 call that did successfully connect); London fetches the gun, highly emotional as a child might be in these circumstances, threatens to harm herself or even shoot her “mean, liar” mother; Possible scuffle. Alexa tries to intervene/shield mom/disarm sister and is inadvertently shot dead by London in the process; Anguish, confusion, shame, blame, seething rage for what has just happened; Distraught London, who has just accidentally killed her sister, shoots herself once - not fatally but in a very bad way - with a deeply affected NO then finishing her off. Or more simply NO, in a fit of rage, blame and emotional meltdown, shoots London twice to kill her outright. Distraught NO then turns the weapon on herself. Just an alternative scenario to think about. I know it is quite hard to imagine a 10yo waving a gun around but I personally know kids who are now so desensitized to the dangers of weapons, and see them so frequently used as a successful way to bargain, that to me it’s not totally beyond the realms of possibility. I concede it’s quite a stretch, but there are some real odd aspects in the washup to this case so far that I can’t quite put my finger on. Did we ever hear the results of toxicology reports on what, if anything, was in NO’s system at the time?
