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.

The Complaint -- Part 8

More room for comments. Still nothing new on the lawsuit front. Be on the lookout for the CBS response, folks.

The Complaint -- Part 5

More room for comments. Meanwhile there's apparently been no new news on the lawsuit. CBS will either opt for the "only an opinion" defense or the "Burke is a public figure" defense  -- or else either try for a settlement OR actually take it to trial. Since a settlement would probably require a public retraction, they might feel they have no choice but to fight it out in court. We just need to be patient.

The Complaint: Part 4

Puff puff puff, I'm running hard just to keep up with you guys.

By the way, I hope to God I'm not on the jury if this case ever goes to trial. Judging from the opinions being batted around here, and elsewhere, no one in that jury would ever be able to agree on anything and they'd all be at each other's throats after an hour or so. So much for our hopes that this case might sometime actually make it into court.

The Complaint: 3

Still waiting for more action on the lawsuit front. So far no word from CBS as to how they plan to respond. If I see something new, I'll add more commentary here.

P.S.: Just now I read a very thoughtful and convincing comment, placed under an older thread where it may well be missed by most reading here. (NB: always try to post your comments in the most recent thread where everyone can easily find them.) I decided to post it here for all to see, along with a (somewhat revised) version of my response.

The Complaint: 2

More room for comments on Lin Wood's "Complaint" (and/or any other relevant issue). All I'll add at this point are my observations that:

The Complaint

OK, the official Burke Ramsey Complaint  against CBS et al. is out there -- all mind numbing 108 pages. Let's take a look:

 The defendants are:


As evident from the prefatory remarks, an important part of Lin Wood's case is that the program was presented as a documentary, based on the premise that new evidence had been uncovered and that this new team of investigators was going to conduct a “complete reinvestigation starting right from scratch.” However, according to the Complaint,
