Man: The ransom note said, speaking to anyone about your situation such as the police, FBI etc., will result in your daughter being beheaded. If we catch you talking to a stray dog, she dies.
Patsy - "I said, 'I'm going to call the police and he said OK. And I think he ran to check on Burke. And I ran downstairs and, you know, dialed 911."
In this interview Patsy presents a version of what happened just prior to the 911 call that completely contradicts the version presented in their book, where John, next to her on hands and knees reading the note, tells Patsy to call the police, the phone is just beside her so she lifts the receiver and calls.
In the A&E version it is Patsy who decided to call the police. She tells John she's going to make the call and he agrees. He then goes to check on Burke and she runs downstairs to make the call. At the time the call is made, according to this version, he is heading for Burke's room, no where near Patsy as she calls 911.
While I never saw any reason to doubt the accuracy of the transcript I was never able to locate this particular interview segment on youtube or anywhere else. The problem, I now realize, is that I found the wrong video and assumed it was the A&E doc, which it wasn't. Not seeing it there, I just assumed it had been cut. It took me a long time to find the original documentary but when I did I found what I'd been looking for, and included a link in the revised version of my book. I'll now include it here as well, in case any of you might he in doubt as to exactly what was said:
If you skip to 17:47 you'll find it.
NB: John is sitting right next to her and doesn't blink an eye. If her version of what happened isn't accurate, he makes no attempt to correct it.
[Added 2 - 7 - 16: The video referenced above is no longer available on youtube, sorry. If anyone knows where to find another copy, please let me know. There's a video on youtube called the "A&E Documentary" but it's not exactly the same and doesn't seem to contain that scene. The transcript for the complete show, which does, can be found here.]
