Omg, before various heads explode, please read this line: Mark Byers WAS a viable suspect. In the minds of some, he still is. This thread is aimed at discussing WHY he was a viable suspect, and why he is still considered one by some folks. All points of view are of course welcome, but can we PLEASE not turn this into yet another "Terry did it" thread? And keep it all focussed on topic? Cheers. Why JMB was always a decent suspect in my mind is simply this: A violent and unstable individual with a long history of domestic abuse beats his son, then goes charging around in a rage looking for same son not long after. Same son is found dead, with two friends. The two friends are still alive when drowned, but the son is already dead. Violent, unstable individual appears to have the local police in his pocket as an informant, some of them highly corrupt, and has record of domestic violence expunged by same judge who presided in the WM3 case (and clearly wanted nothing more than to have the WM3 put away..). Can we really trust that judicial system to do all they can to investigate a man who got away with more crimes than he was convicted for, thanks to that same system? Sorry one more: Does the timeline *really* clear JMB? Is there not ANY room for doubt on that? I hope to hear from some of the people who think JMB really was a viable suspect.
