The maid - There is no statement from the maid in case 1 and case 2 files. See photo taken from the doorway - it spans across the bed and LS location is pretty much the first thing one would see from the doorway. Head tilted back, arms at his side and the belt around his neck tied to the rack is clearly visible. ccm post from thread #2, page 7, #156 - The maid said she "thought" Lyle was praying, but I'm sure the knew what had happened, and she called the manager. http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sh...s-Harbor-17-Sept-2001-2&p=1195454#post1195454 Thread 2, page 5, post #106 - We didn't reinterview the maid, but in reading her description, I believe Lyle was already dead. http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sh...s-Harbor-17-Sept-2001-2&p=1194058#post1194058 For whatever reason, the maid knew nothing according to the owner of the motel - GB. From the reports, through others speaking on her behalf, she thought he was praying but found it necessary to contact owner at home. Who was on front desk duty at that time? The answer is not clear from the written reports available. Nothing earth shattering here - just questions.
