Step 1. Call the police.
Step 2. Answer their questions.
Step 3. Pledge to cooperate if they ask for DNA or a polygraph test.
Step 4. Hire a lawyer if you are asked to provide a DNA sample or polygraph test.
Step 5. Continue to cooperate with the police by providing said sample and taking said test.
Step 6. Hire your own Private Investigator, regardless of whether you think the cops are doing their job.
Step 7. ACT LIKE A GODDAMN GRIEVING PARENT!! Cancel all work commitments: everyone will fucking understand unless they're an asshole. And, for the love of God, DO NOT go on vacation for at least 6 months.
I agree that lie detectors are independable (is that a word? lol), that's why they're inadmissable in court. HOWEVER, it makes sense to just go ahead and take one to shut the cops up. And, hey, if the Ramseys simply DID NOT trust the Boulder cops AT ALL (which I can understand, especially since those dumbasses told JR to search the house again himself) then they should have held a press conference, proclaimed to the world that they DO NOT trust the Boulder cops, and then continued to cooperate with them. Because, really, those are the actions of an innocent person. Innocent people do not behave suspiciously and continue to behave suspiciously when the entire world is saying "Hey! You're behaving suspiciously!!" Unless they're idiots.
