JonBenet Ramsey

Betsy Aardsma, girl stabbed thru heart in public library at PSU in 1969 (not totally convinced that it was Richard Haefner as 2 recent books assert)

Julia Wallace (mainly to shut a certain someone up on the thread as I'm confident in my theory )

Martha Moxley, probably the case I know most about. I live close to it and even know some of the periphery characters. I do not think Michael Skakel was guilty. He is out on appeal now. Would really want to know for sure. If I had to pick 1, it would probably be this one.

Graham, if you hire me and fund my stay at a hotel as well as "business dinners" with your friends and colleagues so I can gain greater insight into your character, I will promise to solve that mystery for you within a few months.

Hello Ginger,

I remember this case. I don't think her disappearance was that unbelievable, bearing in mind there was a thronging crowd there to see the travelling show. Anyone could've taken her. Only takes a second for a child to be snatched.

Quite sad that all her immediate family passed away never knowing the truth.

Why have people started beginning a sentence with an unnecessary ‘so.’

You hear it on tv all the time. Quiz shows for example.

“Ok Paul, what do you do for a living?”

“So I work for an advertising agency.”

“And what are your hobbies?”

“So I love to travel.”

WHY?!

The "trailing so" is a pet peeve of mine, usually appearing in interviews with sports stars.

"We've been putting in a lot of work on the practice field recently, so..."

So... what, exactly? I'm still waiting.

Foreign sports people enjoy using 'for sure.' I love it when they say things like "If I can cross the line first, then for sure I will win."

An intriguing mystery which, as far as I'm aware, has never been solved :

Please take this thread seriously. No one likes a comedian.

Valerie Percy, a pretty young woman and daughter of Us Senator killed in her home in 1966. No obvious signs of intruder. Like Betsy Aardsma case, there has been recent hints at a solution, but nothing conclusive. This occurred in Kenilworth, Illinois, a very wealthy suburb of Chicago. The house was famed for having a tree in it. A large part of my family is from the town just north of this and I've heard the story my whole life

Hi Gareth,

I think it means “so.........I can’t think of anything remotely intelligible to say.”
