If Burke really went downstairs that would be extraordinary. How was DP's followup questions? That really tightens up the timeline if the crime is committed after Burke returns to bed.
This got me thinking that he has never said anything like that before. I wonder if he is just trying to help old dad with the flashlight issue.
I went back to John Douglas's book "The Cases that Haunt Us" and found this on page 377.
"Both parents remembered leaving the Whites' house about 8:30 in the evening...and returning home shortly after 9:00. JonBenet fell asleep in the car, and John carried her into the house and upstairs to her room, where Patsy got her ready for bed. They said she did not wake up during any of this. John then went to attend to Burke, but the boy insisted on completing assembly of a Christmas toy. By the time John put him to bed and came up to his own bedroom....Patsy was already in bed."
So does Burke just not remember Dad was up with him?
DP didn't seem to go into detail with the revelation honestly. He asked him I believe if he took the flashlight or was the lights on downstairs. BR said he didn't remember (surprise surprise) just remembered there was a toy he wanted to play with. IMHO DP failed miserably on this line of questioning.
Quick question.... since BR finally did an interview, can police now question him officially in regards to the new insights? I know he can't be charged, but at least it could finally allow JBR to rest in peace.
I also question another possible charge. IF and I emphasize IF, it is proven than JR and BR are covering up new evidence, will that in turn possibly lead them to a potential arrest scenario? I know they can't be charged in the initial crime. BUT is there a loop hole that could open them up to potential prosecution? Any lawyers know if this in fact exists?
(If not then maybe this is something that can be worked towards in the future to help solve cases like this. Just an idea though. Not sure how feasible it actually is.)
