This group's discussions have become really interesting and profitable this month, but, as a result , we have also begun to sin off on a number of tangents, such as Rocky Bateman (Bateman, Jasper, not Boatman)and the limo compnay, and Cora Fischman............so now I think it's desirable to clear the air and tie up some loose ends, so to speak before things go totally out of control............Jasper has recently recapped how he came to his conclusions.............He would have produced a much shorter and readable book if he had done that in the first place. As it is, I have never been able to read more than five pages of Iago without lapsing into unconsciousness..............Since Japser hs consistently criticized me for "cherry-poicking" my evidence or coming up with a conclusion first and then looking for evidence to support it, I think it appropriate to tell the story of my own theory of the case..................I was NOT abl to follow the criminal trail while it was going on, not having cble access at the time. All I could get ws the second hand media reports..............But, like many others, I wa fascinatedby the case and was turly undecided in OJ was guilty or not............After the criminal trial, there was a delgue of books about the case, and I began reading them with two questions in my mind: (1) could I get enough information to decide whether or not OJ did it, and (2) if I decided Oj didn't do it, was there enough information in the public record to find out who did? And, to be honest, I really didn't think I would beable to answer either question with any degree of certainty...........After a few months of research ( but not on the internet, as I din't have an internet connection at the time. Also, not having grown up with computer access, I did not at the time even think in such terms) I did come to one firm conclusion: There was simply no way OJ could have commtted the murders AND CREATED THE EVIDENCE IN THE PATTERN IT WAS FOUND THE DAY AFTER THE MURDERSby acting alone........I.e., if he did do it, he MUST have had an accomplice.......But hsi immediaely brught up the question, if he had an accomplice, why didn't he use that accomplice as an alibi witness?.........This in turn brought up the possibility of a "late minute" accomplice, which really didn't sense. I mean, would you ddrp everytyhng in the middle of the night to go dispose of someone else's blood y evidence, and then keep your mouth shut about it, thereby beocming liable to the same punishment as the muderer? And, if there was such a person, who could it be?............so I put that idea on the back murner and went looking for someone else......................One thing about this person X I concluded was that he/she had to be intimately familiar with the routines of the Rockingham household. But I couldn't figure out who. For a moment I considered Ron shipp, but I couldn't document that he had the kind of knowledge he would have needed................My "eureka moment" came when I was reading Marc Elliot's book "Kato Kaelin: the whole truth". I was reading his account of the murder night and came to the point just after the thumps. Kaelin recounted how he then left his room and went around the north side of the main house. That's when I asked,"Why didn't he take a short cut through the patio door and into the kitchen?" (You see. Kaelin had spent a good part of the book relating how he had had 'carte blanche' access to the main house.) That's when the "alarms went off" in my head............Kaelin!.......then all I had to do was ask, "If I was Kaelin, how could I have committed the murders and created the evidence as it was found the next morning?"..........As opposed to OJ, figuring this out was easy. For one thing, the mysteries of the "missing evidence" and the thumps and the location and condition of the Rockingham glove were solved immediately..............This left only the mystery of the blood drops at Bundy. Knowing the obscure facts about them that Henry Lee discovered -- that they were dropped from a stationary source, and were thin and degraded in DNA -- I knew that those drops had been planted, and that Kaelin must have been the one who planted them. I wish I could tell you exactly when and how I came up with my planting technique, but I just don't know.........anyway, when I did think it up, I tested it and my technique passed the 'naked eye' test. ........In fact, my solution was so 'elegant'and complete that I saw no need to change or add to it.
