Newcomers to this blog are advised to begin with the first two posts, Just the Facts, Ma'am and Case Solved, which explain in very general terms why I believe I've solved this case. Some important questions are answered in the following post, Misunderstandings, Misconceptions, Misdirections. After that feel free to browse whatever topics might interest you (see blog archive).

NB: If anyone has trouble posting a comment, email it to doktorgosh (at), and I'll post it for you.

Notice to readers of my Kindle book: I recently noticed that, on certain devices (though not all), the Table of Contents begins with Chapter One and omits the Introduction and Preface. Since the Introduction is especially important, I urge everyone to make sure to begin reading at the very beginning of the book, not the first chapter in the Table of Contents. Thank you.

Open Thread

I'm continually impressed by the inordinate amount of interest this case has generated, as indicated by the continual flow of comments. Obviously I'm not the only one who's fascinated, if not obsessed. It's been a long time since I've had any new thoughts or theories to post, so I've decided to create a thread exclusively for your comments and questions (the last set has gotten so long as to be unwieldy). As I've been busy with other projects, I've decided to keep my responses to a minimum, much as I'm tempted to reply to all. I'll respond to questions related to issues that still remain open, but otherwise won't be commenting. Please feel free to discuss the case among yourselves, as in any open forum.

PS: As before, I'll ask that each comment be accompanied by some sort of identifier, either your name or a moniker of some sort. It can get confusing trying to tell one "Anonymous" from another.
