Well I think the Ellen committed suicide is an irrational scenario. Anyone who is open to the possibility of it or however they want to discribe it is to my mind being irrational.

You may think it unlikely, but it's not irrational. Unhappy people hang themselves quite often, sadly, and it's not at all unlikely that Ellen was unhappy with her lot.

Yes but Bury's mutilations of Ellen and then the way he put Ellen in the box make it a highly unlikely scenario. Therefore in my opinion so unlikely that you are being irrational with your proposing that Ellen may have hung herself when it's clear she didn't hang herself. You don't even yourself believe she hung herself. You've just trotted out a highly unlikely scenario for no apparent reason. Using the much used I'm open to the possibility of line which in my experience is often followed with a ludicrous scenario such as your scenario that Ellen hung herself.

I utterly reject everything you just said about me. I've made no irrational or "ludicrous" comments whatsoever.

No John, it suggests what many have tried to discuss over the years, that is the evidence against Bury is very far from conclusive.
