From the Carnes ofder, pg. 72: "Likewise, other items not belonging on the second floor were found there on the day after the murder, thereby suggesting that some preparation or activity was ongoing in that area on the night of the murder. Specifically, a rope was found inside a brown paper sack in the guest bedroom on the second floor; defendants have indicated that neither of these items belonged to them. (SMF 181; PSMF 181.) Regardless of its ownership, there is no explanation why a bag containing a rope would be in the guest bedroom." I know this rope is one of Lou Smit's favorite things. He "knows" it doesn't belong to the Ramseys. But it appears that JonBenet had her picture taken with it once. You can see the end of the rope near JonBenet's ankle in the lower right-hand corner.
