Katelyn Markham and Deception
We have found:
1. John Carter gave verbal indication that Katelyn was deceased, as early as 6 days after he reported her missing.
2. John Carter showed signals of deception about the interaction between himself and Katelyn, just before leaving her apartment.
Q. Is it possible for him to be deceptive but not involved?
A. Yes. It could be that he was dishonest about a fight they had before he left the house. It is possible that he feared she was dead due to the passage of time, but it is difficult to accept just 6 days later.
Q. What about Behavioral Analysis?
A. His behavior including burning personal records of Katelyn's, which is alarming.
Q. Her remains were identified in just two days, but the Scurry County Remains have been unidentified for almost a month. What gives?
A. We don't know details on either. Is there a long waiting list in Texas? Were the remains of Katelyn in such condition that it was easier? Is there a long waiting list in Texas for DNA, rather than just dental?
Q. Couldn't officials in Scurry County be deliberate in waiting?
A. Certainly, especially in a case where family is suspected, they may play things 'close to the vest' and be 'putting their ducks in a row' in the case in the meanwhile.
Q. Do police suspect John Carter?
A. Yes, according to Carter, himself. He said he was the last one to see her and was the suspect. Interesting answer. One might ask, if someone else would have said that the kidnapper or killer was the last to see her. With analysis, we don't hang our hat on a single point, but John Carter's words, in totality, along with his behavior, has brought suspicion to him.
