Ich bin davon ausgegangen, dass die Garotte nachträglich gebastelt wurde, da der Pinsel laut Obduktionsbericht vorab für die Penetration verwendet wurde. Nun habe ich aber ehrlich gesagt keine Ahnung, wie diese Garotte genau aussieht und ob der Pinsel auch gleichermaßen verwendet werden konnte, wenn er schon mit dem Seil verknotet war (hätte man aber nicht in diesem Fall vielleicht auch einen Seilabrieb bzw. Faserspuren im Genitalbereich feststellen müssen?).
Interessant ist in diesem Zusammenhang aber auch der dunkle Stoff, der Abriebspuren hinterlassen hat. Wurde nach diesem überhaupt gesucht? Könnten die Spuren von Burkes Bekleidung stammen?
Auf reddit habe ich auch folgende Theorie gefunden, die ich sehr lesenswert finde:
I will refrain from shameless plugging my BDI theory on the site to bring up something here that I've been going round and round with for the last few weeks. I see it here constantly so it's not just me. Many of us are doing it whether BDI or not. I did address it on my site and a couple of you may have checked that out already but I'd like to add it here so it can be addressed within this particular community where it belongs.
It's the ugly elephant in the room that we tend to downplay and gloss over as if it's nothing all that significant in this case when, if you can stop yourself from setting aside the disturbing reality of it and see it for what it is, the picture or implications of it are pretty clear and there is one major reality here that keeps getting overlooked or ignored that otherwise provides a real foundation for what happened with JonBenet.
That is the shit problem.
The investigators did not make this up. There are reports from CSI the same day, corroborated by other insiders to the family, video and photographic evidence of it. It's been addressed by a number of the investigators involved at the time and beyond, up to and including James Kolar, who, I feel, put it perspective the way it always should've been.
The reports have ranged from Burke's history of smearing feces on the walls and JB's bed. It was almost immediately dismissed with "well, it was a long time ago when Patsy was dealing with cancer, he was acting out" - making excuses for it.
But it was not just then. CSI at the scene that day had reports of finding feces smeared on the walls in her room, (the floor if that's what this was - https://s27.postimg.org/56ysvavyb/smear.png
- ), reports that it was found on her christmas presents, smeared on the candy itself of a box of candy she'd gotten for christmas. It was reported that a pair of long john's believed were Burke's had been found in her room, also with feces. There's one other one but I just went blank on it.
Never the less, the point being ignored is that all of these things minus the wall/bed were all found by CSI and means it was done the same date as she was killed. The Ramseys were junky sorts but I can't imagine Patsy being in JB's room helping her get ready and just ignoring feces smeared on any of these things or not being aware of it at all...if she knew it was there, she'd have cleaned it up or had one of them do it or John - and especially if she was aware of it at all that particular date after JB is dead.
The reality that CSI found feces on more than one place in JB's room, including a consumable product she would ingest and potentially get quite ill from is not a minor piece of evidence that can be lumped into the insignificant file to make tabloid comments over.
Putting feces on anything is maladjusted behavior. It's malicious. It's hateful. It's disturbed. It's abusive. It's aggressive.
It also shows very clearly that the one doing this was very much maliciously targeting her with an attempt to soil her, bring her harm, distress, taunt her, ruin her things, to attack her.
No matter what he perceived, he did these things on christmas day. She's found dead the next.
I presented a realistic scenario for how it would evolve but that doesn't mean that's the actual scenario itself. It was done to show things from the POV of a typical family with kids and how it could've escalated - based on general sibling rivalry, jealousy or resentment - without any particular disorder or psychological issues.
The problem with my scenario though is that I had to deliberately set aside the reality that fecal smearing is a symptom of a very real mental issue. It doesn't go away by itself. It usually requires a good deal of treatment by ones who are qualified to deal with that sort of thing.
Burke did, absolutely, engage in fecal smearing on a variety of JonBenet's things on christmas, and since it's been corroborated their activities throughout the morning and late evening were pretty much as they'd described, backed up with photos, the ONLY conclusion to be made is that all of this fecal smearing behavior took place after they all returned from their christmas festivities that night.
How likely is it that Burke engaged in this behavior later christmas night and into the 26th at he same time a mysterious intruder had gotten in and struck JB, strangled her to death, vaginally assaulted her and hid her in the wine cellar?
How likely is it that an intruder chose the very location in the entire sprawling mansion that family claimed was actually never used but for storage - and thanks to CSI photos and Patsy's tales, hiding things?
Someone on here, one of these other threads, accused me of making Burke out to be evil, based on my BDI theory. Evil? No. A deeply disturbed little boy capable of lashing out and being violent? Absolutely.
The one thing that kept bothering me was that 45 minutes - 2 hour window for the brain swelling and bleeding, while she's unconscious. I kept trying to revert back to that window being the time of the parents covering it up but that doesn't work because it would mean he'd have strangled her after the cover up began - we know that doesn't make any sense.
The fact is, it took a bit of time for the parents to get wind of this, deal with the devastation, and still work out the ransom staging after the fact - before calling 911 at 5am whatever time it was, forgot offhand.
From 10pm - the latest account of them getting home and that 911 call is about 7 hours. Two max of those are required for the brain injury to get to that stage as of death.
The ugly elephant in the room is that she was hit first and even if we give it the most conservative frame between then and death at 45 minutes, it means something was going on in that 45 minutes that needs to be accounted for. Or the whole 2 hour window.
Most of us would imagine the head blow put her down, she's not making noise, then she's vaginally violated with the stick...then strangled - whether it was dragging or outright strangulation is irrelevant - we can all see the evolution that doesn't require a 2 hour break. Just do it, get it done, hide it and get gone.
We couldn't work out what the hell an intruder would've been doing during that same 2 hour window either.
In all the stuff I've been reading on this issue, plus the stuff Kolar put in FF, this is tied intrinsically to sexual abuse, sibling sexual abuse and sexual disorders. Every fucking bit of that crime scene fit that to the letter.
We cannot keep ignoring this.
Burke did these things that same night. That's fact. It's backed up with the corroborating statements from others that this wasn't the first time.
Back to the kernels of truth buried in the bs they all gave, if we take their own statements at face value, they actually do paint the scenario the same way...the time windows and outright admissions are skewed and omitted for obvious reasons but it still works with how they painted it.
They get home, John takes JB up, removes the coat and shoes - she wakes up - Patsy changes her for bed into the garments she'd been found in. Patsy green lights a snack, they return downstairs to the kitchen. John and Burke are messing with the toy.
My scenario involved what would be more realistic for cranky kids fighting sleep - JB wanted pineapple, Patsy directs Burke to get her a spoon, Burke does something hateful, taunting, malicious - perhaps HE is the one who swipes pineapple from her bowl - she flips out and refuses to eat anymore of it. The kids bicker. Burke is scolded. Both are sent up to bed.
But this malicious, abusive, aggressive mentality escalates if he's told to get to bed, she got him in trouble so he couldn't finish playing. John and Patsy do go upstairs to finish packing, getting things ready for the trip and perhaps cat nap for a few hours to get up and get an early start.
Like they said.
Burke waits til everyone's kind of in bed, like he said. He quietly takes JB downstairs to the basement, like he said. He hits her in the head, like he said - whatever it was, flashlight or something else, we do not know. He said hammer. Maybe it was a hammer. As for the knife, unless the ME missed a spot, that doesn't apply, or there was some other knife that didn't break skin. Maybe he swung it as demonstrated and it didn't connect...so he used something else.
They're in the basement where nobody on the 3rd floor is going to hear anything. The parents think they're both in bed asleep.
After he hit her he was doing something for the next 45 minutes to 2 hours.
At this point it's not unreasonable whatsoever that was the period of time he was back upstairs in her bedroom engaging in that behavior, smearing it all over the stuff it was found on, candy included.
Then he returned to the basement, she's not revived.
He then proceeds to use the paint brush, whether it was broken some time earlier or he broke it then and there, either pulls the bottoms down and penetrates her with the brush handle.
[ETA: It's just as plausible, after giving it some thought, that after the head blow, he engaged the sexual violation at that point or shortly thereafter, which was rousing the scatalogical urges, or the urges roused the sexual violation...and it was after those two he went up to her room to complete the task of further soiling her stuff. Then returned downstairs to complete the rest.]
He pulls the garments back up, finds the cord and cuts it - the pocket knife - straddles behind her and pulls it under her face and ties it tightly in the back. He winds the other end around the same paint brush handle and ties it off.
He pulls her some unknown distance by the cord so that it moves up, rolls and catches her skin and necklace in the binding, and continues on until it's pulled up as far as it will go. The distance ends at the wine cellar door, just outside of it - or she was there all along and he stayed there and "manually strangled" her, not knowing she was not already dead.
He'd perceive the blow would've done it since she'd not revived in 45m-2hrs.
JB is still face down. She's also in the way of the wc door that opens outward into the hall. She'd be in the way of the door.
The logical move is to roll her to the side and that would be toward the left side of the door knob in the space where the paint tray would be situated.
This fits the visual evidence of the urine staining on her garments being more concentrated at the center to the left, with her right side now above the gravity point. He basically rolled her from face down to her left side so he could get the door open.
He pulls her into the wine cellar.
He either already knew the gifts were there and already tore into them to see, or he discovered it then and did it. If that's the case, he knew regardless at some point his mother would be back down there to get them.
That strongly suggests he'd have put JB in the wine cellar deliberately for the purpose of having his mother find her in the immediate future.
Other's feel that he's not the one to have put her in there. If so, then he left her right outside the wine cellar door out in the open, not of a mind to hide any of it at all.
But he'd still now that at some point one or both of his parents were going to end up going down there and find her. He wasn't stupid. He knew she was there so if he did't put her in the wc to hide her or for her mother to find, then he left her on the floor for them to find.
In either case it's malicious, hateful, disturbed behavior.
Then he went to his room, did not go to sleep, and listened to whatever happened next.
Now we're probably about 2 or 3 am...
John and Patsy get up from the couple hours nap somewhere around there,to start getting ready. John gets in the shower. Patsy, still dressed from the day before, fixes herself up a bit, gathers up her stuff and decides to do a load of laundry, goes to the second floor to get the jumper or whatever it was. She notices JB's door open and peeks in. JB's not there. She goes to look for her, checks Burke's room but he pretends to be asleep. Like he said.
That's pure deception.
Patsy asks him where JB is, concerned but not freaking out. She goes out and keeps looking. Everywhere but the basement. She hollers for John who joins her on floor 2, like they said - not far from Burke's room. She says she can't find JB and is getting concerned. John goes to Burke's room and "wakes" him up asking where JB is.
Burke says she's probably hiding somewhere in the house...suggesting they go look for her. Like he said.
He was indifferent, unfazed, unconcerned.
That is malicious, unstable behavior. He doesn't care whether they find her or not, but his suggestion she was probably hiding has been glossed over. She wouldn't be hiding in the house in the wee hours of the morning. That suggestion seems like baiting them to go find her themselves.
We don't know he did, but we also don't know he didn't just allude to the wine cellar, she was asking about the secret santa, or she was downstairs...we don't know the specifics of how they ended up downstairs - but it's one of two: he told them or alluded to it, or they hunted for her til they finally found her.
They look upstairs and make their way to the basement and find her - outside the wc door on the floor, or they look in the wc and find her then.
They're blasted, they handle the body, they cross contaminate it regardless of whether she was inside or outside of the wine cellar.
They would deal with Burke but that maladjusted indifference wouldn't get them far.
They only see her with the cord around her neck. That's what they're facing...which is not anything they can call an accident, he didn't mean to.
Do they turn him in and lose him?
No. Patsy made it pretty clear she couldn't lose him, too...so they sent Burke up to his room, demanded he stay there, and they worked out the kidnapping story.
Patsy wrote the note - I honestly think the reason it was 3 pages was because John was dealing with JB and not there to stop her and tell her that's not how ransom notes work. He put the tape over her mouth, he used the rest of the same cord to loosely tie her hands. He closed and locked the wine cellar.
He goes back upstairs, she hands him the note. He puts it on the floor and begins to read it...meanwhile Patsy calls 911. Burke hears that and worries they might be calling the police on him after all so he does go downstairs about the time Patsy's wrapping it abruptly up. She hangs up, she doesn't naturally end that call...and that works with Burke coming downstairs asking what's going on, overhearing finding a ransom note which makes no sense to him, so she hangs up - how could you do this? What did you do? (rhetorical). John says what he says, presumably "we're not speaking to you" and Burke asks what did they find?
John takes Burke upstairs and demands he stay in the room, don't come out, don't say a word.
They can't have Burke questioned - that could very well be why Patsy was calling her friends to come over so she could send Burke off with one of them and get him out of the house asap.
At this point, neither one of them have a clue in hell he'd smeared shit all around her room upstairs.
That's about as close to what would've happened as we're apt to get.
There's no way in hell Burke was doing all that while an intruder was in there killing her and waiting around a couple hours to finish it off. None at all.
We have to stop sailing over the reality of the behavior that could've only happened that night after they got back. All those elements done to her fit right alongside that disturbing behavior all around.
