Angelic, I know all this because I read. I've read all the transcripts..everything on this case. I don't just take what Darlie's website has to say for granted. They are the defence, they'll say anything that makes her look not guilty of the crime. Same with the prosecution...their vested interest is to convict her. You have to read both sides and then judge for yourself. Like I have a problem with one or two of the police officers and their "mental notes."
for instance: at the time Darlie was tried, she adamently denied that Darin was the intruder, both she and Darin testified under oath that they were not having money problems or marital problems.......now here comes Darin 6 years later saying their marriage was falling apart and he was shopping around to hire someone to rob his house!!! Six years later Darlie is commenting "I just don't know what to think about Darin" after staunchly denying he was the intruder. I don't believe this affidavit and neither did the court and that's why she lost her appeal. Darin was investigated and they could find no evidence he was even talking about having his house set up for an insurance scam.
But you're suspicious because Darlie's website told you the fingerprints don't match anyone at the crime scene. Yet if the prosecution told you the fingerprint on the glass table is smudged in blood, it's from a small adult or possibly a juvenile and lacks the correct amount of points to be identified. What if a qualified print expert told you this. One testified during the trial and his credentials are impeccable.
Of course there can be flawed info, people are human, they makes mistakes. There are always mistakes made at crime scenes. And any CSI will tell you that the chances of getting identifiable prints from a crime scene are slim to none.
Yes Darlie is insisting she's innocent....most killers do don't they?
I agree she should have everything tested. No, we don't want to execute an innocent person. I don't believe that will happen in this case. There's just so much evidence that points to Darlie as the killer.
p.s. Angelic...more. The patent print on the kitchen door to the utility room bothers me for these reasons. If the intruder had that much blood on his hands that it ran down the door, where did it go? There is no blood in the garage, on or near the window or anywhere outside, not on the fence, etc. there is no evidence the blood was wiped from his hands anywhere. Questions as these have to be answered before I can give Darlie an out. She was bleeding from the forearm, she had bloody hands. Given the lack of blood where there should be blood leads me to believe that the patent print on the utility room door is Darlie's print.
There is a line of blood drops, Darlie's blood, on the east (I think) sofa that appears as if Darlie walked on the couch whilst bleeding..maybe to get to something.....like Damon who was moving..his blood was found in that area. His bloody handprint had been wiped from the sofa and his bloody butt print was on the sofa in that area. There is also swipes and transfers of blood on the arm of the couch in between it and the table. She steadied herself on that sofa table and...bloody fingerprint smudged in blood on a glass surface...unidentifiable but can be used to exclude. It has a whorl pattern, Darlie has a whorl pattern..so does Devon but there is no evidence he was in that area whatsoever, he basically died where he lay. No one can say definitely this happened as we weren't there but that's what I mean about blood telling a story and that's why I think it's Darlie's print.
There used to be a blood map on one of the forums so it was easy to see who's blood was shed where.
The bloody sock is also an unanswered question for me...as i am sure it is for most.
There was a supporter forum years ago that I joined. They wanted you to read the transcripts before you posted so that's what I did. At one time I believed Darlie was innocent but her story had always niggled at me..it didn't ring true. Anyway, another group broke away and formed another forum for Darlie's guilt. I joined that forum. Both forums discussed the evidence that was presented at trial. We discussed every single thing from every single angle until we couldn't dicuss it any longer. The same with the appeals. There have also been people close to the family or the investigation that know certain things and have posted them. We consulted blood experts. We photoshopped every piece of evidence we could. The book MTJD is invaluable for the crime scene photos...we all had copies so we could discuss it.
We analyzed the 911 call, downloaded it, slowed it down, burned it to a cd, everything we could to make it clearer so we could hear it better. It's very damning to Darlie IMO. Especially when she goes from hysterics to anger in a nanosecond and angryily says to Darin.."someone just walked in here and intentionally did it Darin". Her focus on her fingerprints on the knife whilst her two boys were dying and dead in front of her. Her refusal to help Damon.
Once you read her testimony, well for me, the light dawned..she was lying. When she alleged she said "frightening" instead of "fighting" and wouldn't budge her position that was it for me. Her whole story was a lie. There's testimony from neighbours that Darlie had emotionally detached from the two boys long before she killed them..boys locked outside to play in the hot sun..boys not allowed to have friends over any longer, boys left to ride their bikes unsupervised away from the neighbourhood.......Darlie's verbal abuse of them, swearing at them and calling them names. Her depression and her suicidal attempt in the months preceeding the murders. Her overuse of diet pills. Then you see her at the silly string party and you are appalled..I saw a histrionic personality enjoying her 15 minutes of fame....playing to the cameras.
I also watched everything I could get my hands on. There have been individual jurors that have been on the talk shows and have defended their conviction of Darlie. There has only been on juror now who has come out and said he didn't see certain evidence..however his statements are not consistant with the trial transcripts. Posters that were convinced she was innocent until they visited her in prison have posted their thoughts on Darlie and what is like in prison..gives you a clearer picture. And she's cold despite her sweet little innocent act when she's on tv, she has no remorse whatsoever for the boys. The only thing that drives her is getting out of prison.
As I said earlier, I am also in favour of the post conviction testing. Test everything. I don't believe it will make a difference. It will just reinforce her guilt.
