I cannot fathom anyone other than another child that they'd be covering up for, just personally, as a parent myself.
I haven't watched the CBS doc but do intend to at some point - but I wanted to come in just to share something that I learned recently from a Future Learn class (Forensic Psychology) that I'm currently participating in regards to blood/DNA/scientific evidence.
So the following Miscarriages of Justice (things that can lead to an individual being wrongly convicted) as ranked are as follows:
1. eyewitness misidentification
2. forensic blood analysis
3. police misconduct
4. defective/fraudulent science
5. false confessions
6. false witness testimony
8. DNA inclusions
Forensic science can be linked to 23% of wrongful convictions and the course cited the already spoken of incident where a factory workers DNA had contaminated the cotton swabs.
I guess my point would be that with all of the mishandling of this case and the evidence involved, I just think there is very little VALID evidence and that'd be my guess as to why the DA never tried to go for a conviction, there just wasn't enough.
As far as the sexual trauma theory goes, someone on another forum I visit suggested that perhaps JB was one of those kids that couldn't keep their hands out of their pants. It's certinately something I've dealt with during my childcare days and I think could be possible.
I'm not 100% convinced Burke committed the crime, but I definitely believe the Ramseys know who did (although I'm not sure that is information they would've ever shared with Burke).
All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.
ok - i don't know as much about this case as most of you do. but i did see a few minutes of the dr phil interview with the son, and he is a creeper.
anyhoo, i was just reading a position paper by terry speed on the certainty of DNA testing. for those of you who don't know, he's a brilliant statistician on faculty at Cal, and he's given expert testimony (including the OJ case) in which he disputes the certainty of DNA testing at removing doubt from specific cases. not sure if he has weighed in about the jonbenet case, but his point is that he finds fault with match probabilities.
Any of Jon Benet's DNA/blood/hair/tissue ever found on the flashlight that she was supposedly struck with?
Dr. Spitz and Dr. Lee, not in the same doc as Coombes, both agree the DNA has no forensic value. They think it's not a true piece of evidence to link somebody or exonerate somebody.

is it possible to put someone on ignore in just one thread? J/K!

I believe it's in the 2nd episode. I don't have their exact quotes though.
