There's an old thread on this, but it goes a couple of years back, and of course we (I) got off on a number of tangents, so I'm just starting a new one to make it easier to start from scratch for us. Remember my questions about the crime scene photo which we saw very late in the history of this case where the body was still in the home, near the Christmas tree? We can see the living room rug under it. Also, we can see the paper bags on the hands of the child, standard operating procedure for LE when transporting the body of a crime victim, to preserve evidence on the hands. (Plastic bags can cause them to sweat, displacing evidence and degrading DNA.) What bothered me most about that photo is the position of the arms and hands we see in it. They're not in the "over her head" position we so long had been told they were in when JR found the body, which was in rigor. Rigor would have only continued for some 12 hrs or so before it would have begun to recede, as well. So when the coroner got to the body at the Ramsey home, about 8 pm that night, the hands would still have been in rigor, in the position in which we see them in this photo: We speculated a lot on why this photo depicts something other than "arms over her head." Remember the "drawing" and TV movie we saw, with them above, but to the each side of her head? That's not in this photo. Some wondered if the medical examiner broke the rigor to take this picture for some reason. It seemed an odd thing to do, but I'm not medical examiner, so really just can't figure it out. But today reading John Ramsey's 1998 interview with then DA investigator Smit and special prosecutor Kane, I think I may have figured it out. Maybe not, but let me continue with my thought in the next post.
