Nothing has been proven in this case, so for Websleuths to ban an open dialogue about all possible scenarios is pretty narrow-minded if you ask me.

It would seem that way to those who have not truly studied the case in depth.

They have already spent years on the intruder theory - looked at all the suspects and looked at the evidence from every angle and have come to an obvious conclusion. There probably seems little point in continuing to go round in circles with it.

They basically solved the crime (as did the Grand Jury) and now the discussion is mainly about the psychology of it all. They will discuss new evidence if and when it presents itself.

If you want to talk about intruders you can go on the nutcase's own website Topix, or just stay here and talk to Wicksy.
