Robyn Davis: The Expected





What is it that you expect to hear a woman accused of murder to say?  In analysis, we presuppose innocence, and make a list of words we believe we expect to hear from an innocent person.

"I didn't kill him" is number one.

Why should we believe you?

"Because I told the truth" is number two.

Is it really this simple?


Is this what you hear from Robyn?

Somebody's lying.

OR, did one jump start the car that night and the other one jump started the car the next day?

The way they are answering the questions it sounds like the car was jumped more than once and at different times.

Guess I'll play the video again.

This is not what I hear from Robin.

Not even a 'lil bit' :)

The video was hard to follow, but I watching and hearing the stuttering and hicupping Robyn displayed was the worst...
She was in some destress prob caused by her lying. GI problems, at the least. Her stomach turned on her as her mind searched for the right words to say.

I know this is off-topic, but I can't find a link to contact you. I hope you'll forgive the intrusion.

This blast has impacted an area near to me. What was first thought of as a natural gas explosion ripped through the Richmond Hill subdivision of Indianapolis. It killed two people, injured many others, and many homes have been devastated. The explosion happened in the middle of the night, the owner of the house and her boyfriend were not home at the time, her daughter was sent to stay with friends, and the cat was boarded. The blast was felt as far as an hour's drive away.

The woman received the house in a divorce settlement and tried to sell it, but it didn't sell and she took it off the market. She said she was working extra hours to make the payments.

Today, it was announced that this has become a criminal homicide investigation. They are apparently looking at the woman and her boyfriend, along with searching for a white van seen in the neighborhood.

Her story sounds a little hinky to me. I am looking at what is reported in the negative, at a lack of reputable denial (with its three parts), at key words used, but I am not skilled enough yet to come up with much other than just a "gut feeling".

I was wondering if you could take a moment and help?

(I'm sorry for so many articles; it seems there is a snippet here and a snippet there, so I've tried to pull together enough to possibly make a full story.)

I greatly appreciate your time. Thank you. :)

One thing she does say in the video: "I didn't do nothing wrong."

Technically, she didn't do "nothing wrong", because she wasn't home. The explosion, or whatever it was that caused the explosion, did "wrong".

Relative to the Indianapolis explosion- I would also love to hear your take Peter- if she did this- caused a natural gas explosion- she had to have known it would take out the neighborhood- wonder if she had beefs with her neighbors. I thought the ex-husbands immediate response and negative statement was also interesting- made me immediatly think maybe he did it- but if the house was turned over to her in divorce then there is no motive. By the by- her name- a mountain in Columbia.
p.- i don't know anything about this robyn davis case-sorry

One article says: "She told Eyewitness News, after her divorce, her house was up for sale, but she decided to take it off the market and worked extra hours and two jobs to keep it and make the mortgage payments."

It makes me wonder if the intent was not to take out the neighborhood, but just enough to damage her house so it would not be habitable. Then she would get some kind of settlement, be able to get out from underneath that mortgage, and possibly have enough left over to relocate. If that was the original intent, something obviously went horribly wrong.

I'm not versed enough in SA to be able to come to definite conclusions, so I am interested in Peter's take, as well as other people's opinions. I have a few hunches, but I need to learn more.

Thanks

I watched the program on these women. Robyn Davis accused of killing her husband, Sissy her co-conspirator. Interestingly there are people who believe these women are " innocent". I watched the 48 hours program of their 2nd wind, after they had been in jail not yet charged.

These two were like Tweedle Dee and Dumber to view. Each backed each others words, lies, and each other. The interview of Robyn, on the program, was nails on the chalk board her lies. To my ears was all lies, as I was listening to the pro-nouns. Both women using jumbled twang language, in order to ? confuse the listener?

Robyn's words I remember, when asked a question by the investigators, she would toss in, " I don't know, whenever, whatever" as she does in the linked video. Passive aggressive on times, events, she feeling her personal power. As if, since she was who she was, she would smear her words creating her own language, no one was paying attention?

Example, Robyn offering a time, when asked, her response: sixsevenisheigth oh I don't know, you know, whatever, whenever, I said to Sissy... ( omg) Robyn's own language, only Sissy could understand.

Her's thinking, I AM SAMRT, much more SAMRT than the local law enforcement.

Video here of a portion of the program I watched, 48 hours.
Sissy says to the camera, "Brian's dead, been murdered, by GOD Knows Who" - interesting choice of words.

OT.

Update.


Indiana Home Explosion Turns To Homicide Probe.

Officials are issuing search warrants and looking for a white van seen in the neighbourhood where the fatal blast took place.7:07am UK, Tuesday.

Authorities have launched a criminal homicide investigation into the house explosion that killed two people and damaged numerous homes in an Indianapolis neighbourhood.

Indianapolis Homeland Security Director Gary Coons made the announcement on Monday evening.

"We are turning this into a criminal homicide investigation," Mr Coons said, though he did not indicate whether police had any suspects.

Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry says search warrants are being executed and that officials are looking for a white van that was seen in the neighbourhood. Authorities are offering at least a $10,000 reward.

Mr Curry said the investigation is aimed at "determining if there are individuals who may be responsible for this explosion and fire".

Officials have said they believe natural gas was involved in November 10 explosion, which levelled two homes and left dozens more uninhabitable.

Investigators have been focusing on appliances as they search for a cause.

Funerals were held earlier on Monday for the couple killed in the explosion, 34-year-old John Dion Longworth and 36-year-old Jennifer Longworth.

They lived next door to the home where investigators believe the explosion originated.

The interviewer in this clip did a good job of seeking the information without giving away why he was asking.
