Ned's post from the "Why Patsy did not kill JonBenet" thread: Ned, I agree. My number one reason for believing Burke didn't do it is that if he were involved in any way, I don't believe his two manipulative, controlling parents would've relinquished control of him for a second -- not on the morning of the 26th and not in the days and months following. No way. At least one of them would've supervised him 24/7. If he were involved he'd be a walking land mine and the Ramseys wouldn't have handed him over to Fleet White -- especially since they needed White to be a clueless Bus Victim -- or anyone else, nor risked the police getting access to him when they weren't looking. And they certainly wouldn't have let him go back to school with all those kids with questions and all that opportunity to screw things up. Are you kidding? After all that effort and risk put into the staging and cover-up? If he were involved, then the Ramseys -- under the guise of safety from terrorist kidnappers -- would've hired in teachers, shrinks, hypnotists, lobotomists, and whatever else they could think of to keep their self-preservation going, and would've supervised every move he, and they, made. As for trusting that he would keep his mouth shut, yeah maybe for some minor secret... but not when their entire lives are hanging by a thread. They're going to trust this kid with their lives after knowing of his involvement in sexual abuse, violence and murder? They're going to trust a kid that out of control to begin with, let alone how unpredictable he'd be after the crime? Nope, don't think so. The Ramseys handled Burke as if they figured he really knew nothing and what he might know or have seen/heard could be explained away with typical Ramsey spin.
