I would like to see them, please.
I agree. Good job to Carol and T.

I'd like to know what kind of a toy Kolar thinks made the back marks.
I'd like to know whose DNA was found on the "garotte." I didn't even know it had been tested.
There is something huge in that Daily Beast text and so far I haven't heard anyone mention it.
Not only can you see unbroken cobwebs in the window casing (that definitely proves NO ONE went through that basement window), there were cobwebs hanging off several of the broken parts of the open window! That proves the window was NOT broken the night of JonBenet's death!
What horrible lies and half-truths Lou Smit peddled to the world in order to save his beloved Ramseys.
One of the huge things I see is that Lacy wouldn't listen to Kolar after he said there was no evidence for an intruder. Lacy belittled Kolar in front of the other investigators and basically said, don't bother me unless you come up with an intruder! Lacy didn't care where the facts and evidence led. She wanted an intruder so she could exonerate her friends, the Ramseys. Kolar couldn't make up an intruder out of whole cloth, so he had to quit the investigation.
Kolar's book shows just how hell-bent Lacy was on not investigating the case, but finding an intruder so she could declare the Ramseys innocent.
Kolar has blown the whistle on Lacy's corruption and incompetence!
I'm keen to know this too!
Don't keep me in suspense Bob, you mention it! Looking forward to your photos too!
What? That the case is a cold case and not actively being investigated like Garnett thinks/states it is?
Okay, I"m going to answer my own question: what else is in this book?
I actually got a copy, so I've read some of it. I'm sure Tricia thinks I'm going to have something to add to the drama on her program tonight, but right now, I'm stuck on STUTTERING!!!
I'm only through about 80 pages and I can't believe how we've been duped. Well, not all of us, but it wasn't for lack of them trying.
The book is easy to read and in fact, starts with an intruder scenario so well written in terms of sheer entertainment, I saw it like a movie in my head. I'm not sure how I'd feel about it if I didn't always know where Kolar's depiction was originating, the evidence he was using to set up what clearly is a Lou Smit-like attempt to explain how a foreign faction committed these crimes. It's so well written, I even enjoyed it--as fiction.
Then Kolar gets into the case proper: bits of evidence we've wondered about for years start tumbling out. He's put together an excellent summation of the crime from the beginning, streamlined and succinct, yet rather complete for all the distractions he could have gotten lost in. It's a good revisiting of the case without all the BS we have waded through for 15 years.
By the chapter on the autopsy, my jaw was on the floor.
What it took us ordinary, non-expert citizens 15 years of our lives to dig out of all the conflicting information, LE knew in Boulder on Day Two. No wonder the word most often used to describe the Ramseys by the confused public in the early years was arrogant. I don't know when Patsy and John figured out they were untouchable, but my guess is it was when Hunter announced no indictments.
It's just my opinion, but there is no reason at all that the Ramseys shouldn't have been arrested the moment they set foot back in Colorado, if for nothing else but to nail them for child abuse. Kolar may have a different take on that, but I'll have to keep reading to find out.
I will say Kolar is a good storyteller. He's straightforward and has an eye for the simplest detail that gives the people peppered into this case a humanity. Whether it's the setting or a personal element that gives perspective to what is going on around them, he draws you in, which is what good writing does.
I have peeked ahead and some things that have popped out at me had my blood boiling.
So I highly recommend the book, but only if you get yourselves to the doctor for some blood pressure meds and anxiety pills.
Because if what I've read so far and the video Carol put up for us today is any indication, I'm booking a month at the Last Resort for People with a Conscience.
I agree with all of your outstanding posts. Yes, cream rises to the top as will Carol and Tricia. My thanks to both of you for such dedication to a cause that so many have either forgotten or shown indifference to.
You are both heros!
I ordered my copy today and within a few days I should have it and all I can say is HERE WE GO AGAIN! I will add that I am very uplifted that this book is out and that maybe some good may come almost sixteen years later
I love you all
Talk about "flights," what about the 1st class champagne and shrimp flight that Karr had on the taxpayer's dime from Thailand without a shred of evidence to back the arrest warrant. :moron:
For those interested in getting a copy quickly, It is only out of stock through Amazon directly, but if you click on "new" (at Amazon, next to the price) a list of sellers will appear who have had the book in stock for some time and expedited shipping is available.
I noticed the book last week, ordered it, received it today and have been reading it feverishly.
Let me tell everyone that the book is a BOMBSHELL. Kolar completely dismantles IDI.
Was it the "OTHER DNA found" and DNA on "the murder weapon?" That was what stood out most to me.
Thank you for this excellent synopsis. I will buy the book the first time I set eyes on it! Unfortunately I have no sound with the Ramsey basement video. Tried my husband's computer same deal, WhiteWitch had no sound either, so I don't feel so neglected. I feel it was caused by the latest adobe download (?). Hope I can hear Tricia's broadcast tonight (?).
I'll order the book through Amazon.
Until I can get a copy, I sure would appreciate you posting what you've read so far, such as this. TIA, KK.
Prior sexual abuse was affirmed.
In Kolarâ€™s book, he says he reviewed transcripts of police intervews with at least five physicians and forensic pathologists from around the country who were shown photographs of injuries taken from JonBenetâ€™s autopsy report. Their conclusion, writes Kolar, was that JonBenet had been â€œsubjected to sexual intrusionâ€ some time before her death, and that â€œdigital penetration was consistent with this type of injury.â€
We all suspected this JC, didn't we? What will John Ramsey's reactions be with this latest book, I wonder(?). Will he try and sue him?
Oh good grief, JC! I'm speechless!
