A couple of thoughts, not necessarily completely on-topic here, but related to photos above... The mark on JonBenet's right cheek which has baffled us all so much: Could it possible be a bruise/abrasion from the tip of a pool cue? From Wikipedia: On another subject which I know absolutely nothing about (since I didn’t raise daughters): Could one of the hair ties in her hair have had some type of ornament that might have been broken off? I know that one of the ties is red/black/white, so I don’t think purple would be used in that combination. But do we know about the other one? Could it have been more like a barrette -- or even a barrette with the bow as a decoration rather than a functional part of what held the hair? If so, this might account for two mysteries -- one of which is the broken purple ornament that is mentioned in the search warrant inventories found near the body.
