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.

Hot Off the Press:Doubtful DNA

An anonymous poster (thank you) just linked us to an article titled DNA in doubt: New analysis challenges DA's exoneration of Ramseys, from the Boulder Daily Camera of Oct. 27. The lead author is Charlie Brennan, the reporter who sued to get the GJ indictment made public, and a long term student of the case -- he assisted Lawrence Schiller in the writing of PMPT. At first glance this looks like nothing new. The presence of multiple DNA samples at the crime scene was reported some time ago in James Kolar's book. (Interesting that Kolar is not mentioned.) What makes it important is its thoroughness. Brennan digs deeply into many details of this evidence, consulting with and quoting several DNA experts (though fans of Dr. Henry Lee may be disappointed).

Burke's Interview

The full transcript of Burke Ramsey's 1998 interview is now available via the Oct. 3 issue of the National Enquirer. Thanks to diamondlil16, we have a link to a Websleuth's page where the entire document has been reproduced. You'll need to scroll down a bit, but you'll eventually find it, as posted by "DrollForeignFaction." While most items emanating from the NE should be taken with a huge grain of salt, this one looks authentic. It's also important, as it provides us with some information we didn't have before, and either clears things up or muddies the waters, depending on how reliable a witness we take Burke to be.

Some Revealing Comparisons

The handwriting evidence has once more emerged as a topic of discussion by certain commenters on this blog -- and thanks to Zed, we were linked to one of the better known sets of comparisons compiled by Cina Wong:

(NB: Due to copyright considerations I've been warned not to directly reproduce any of Cina Wong's comparisons on this blog -- so I've done the next best thing by posting the appropriate link above.)

I took another look and decided to respond with some comments of my own regarding this particular document. And now, thinking about it some more, I realize that my observations are relevant enough to warrant a blog post of their own. Here's what I wrote in response to the image linked to by Zed (with some additions and edits):

Lin Wood for the Defense

NB: I am not any longer going to tolerate posts containing personal attacks, on me or anyone else. If you feel the need to vent some frustration, that's OK. But attacks on an individual are not OK. Posts containing such attacks will be deleted.

WARNING: Especially offensive posts will be marked as spam -- meaning that from now on nothing posted from the offending source will appear at all. If you desire reinstatement, you may email me with your request.

As I'm sure we all know by now, Lin Wood has sued Dr. Werner Spitz over his allegations that Burke Ramsey murdered his sister. Now, in an interview with Westword, he discusses his plans to sue CBS and the production company Critical Content over the same allegations. I have mixed feelings regarding Mr. Wood. On the one hand, I find his stubborn defense of "the Ramseys" over so many years to be misleading in the extreme. Thanks to his aggressive involvement in this case, all sorts of inaccurate and often outdated information has been widely disseminated (my all time favorite, the outrageous bit about "seven open doors and windows"). Stubbornly clinging to an intruder theory that's long since been thoroughly debunked, Wood has done everything possible to blow smoke over the substantial evidence of an inside job in which one or more of his clients very likely committed horrific acts.

This is Getting Ridiculous

The volume of comments on this blog is hard to keep up with. Once we reach a certain number, the software turns a page and comments can easily become hard to find or lost altogether. I welcome your comments and hope they'll keep coming, but to keep up with the volume I need to keep adding more posts such as this. Please from now on, post your comments here. Or, speaking generally, always post your comments under the most recent blog post, to make sure they get seen. Thank you.

The Gospel According to Michael Tracey and David Mills

Warning: this post contains disturbing images some readers might prefer to avoid.

Well, finally I was able to view the recent A & E show, The Killing of JonBenet: The Truth Uncovered, produced by the same person who produced the first A & E "Documentary," David Mills, with his former co-producer, Michael Tracey, serving as consultant. It's now available, on a pay-per-view basis (not much), via youtube. (What would we do without youtube? I'm almost tempted to refer to it as Saint youtube.)

More on Woodward's Book

Continuing with my review of Paula Woodward's book. Also, I'd appreciate any comments anyone would like to make on the CNN special that just aired. I don't have cable so I'm curious as to whether they've come up with anything new.
