Veronica Lodge, straight to bed is part of the staging, that you are speculating means it worked. So the parents are never going to say Burke and JonBenet just went to bed after playing, i.e. which bed? Their version of events minimizes any need to remember a long list of facts, although both Patsy and John slipped up initially, and of course Burke had excellent memory recall where he helpfully told investigators JonBenet walked into the house after returning from the White's BPD patently have forensic evidence linking Burke to the basement, which is why he produced the story about returning back downstairs once everyone was in their bedroom. Dr Phil has an audio book available, I was tempted to purchase, but decided against as I was certain it would all be psychobabble about self-improvement,etc. The other aspect to John assisting Burke with the toy, is that Dr Phil quotes John saying he took the flashlight upstairs to put Burke to bed, but nothing is said about who took it back downstairs, e.g. possible link to above BPD evidence! Its also possible that its John who has been identified, say by dna profiling, as being linked to the flashlight, so he has produced an explanation?
