Darlie Routier's 911 Call - Abbreviated Analysis



Project Innocence and other "advocacy" groups do not seek truth, 

but seek to eradicate the consequence of murder under the pretense of clearing the innocent. 



Darlie Lynn Routier (born January 4, 1970, RowlettTexas),  was convicted of murdering her young son Damon, and is currently on death row awaiting execution by lethal injection. Two of her three children, Damon and Devon, were stabbed to death in the  home on June 6, 1996. 


Darlie Routier was accused of killing both children but was only prosecuted for the murder of Damon, the younger of the two murdered boys. 


Only the DNA of Damon and his mother were found on the kitchen knife at the scene. The murder weapon in Devon's death has never been identified. Darlie Routier sustained knife wounds,  which prosecutors claimed were self-inflicted.  


Does the language bear this out?

00:00:00 911 Operator #1 ...Rowlett 911...what is your emergency?

The question allows the subject to report exactly what is wrong.  The subject (Routier) must choose where to begin her account.  It is expected that the victims' needs is first.  In Statement Analysis, we presuppose innocence and truth; therefore, when the "expected" is not heard, we are confronted by the "unexpected" and stop, pausing to take notice. 

00:01:19 Darlie Routier ...somebody came here...they broke in...

a.  Note that "somebody" is gender neutral and is used to conceal the identity of the attacker.  
b. Note "came here" is changed to "broke in

We have someone, not male nor female who came here, but then "broke in." 

We note the order. This is an example of scripted language of which the subject speaks from memory of intended words, rather than experiential memory.  It sounds awkward because it is awkward. Cops intuitively pick this up. 

She's lying. 

00:03:27 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am...

00:05:11 Darlie Routier ...they just stabbed me and my children...

Please note that in a statement, order shows priority.  This is especially evident in a 911 call as the first things reported are the most important.  Here is the order:

1.  Somebody came here

2.  They broke in
3.  They just stabbed me
4.  and my children.

Why is it important (a priority) that she first establishes that somebody "came" here?  For someone to stab them, he would have to be there.  

Note that second in her priority is that they (plural) broke in to the home.  With bleeding children, why would it matter if they broke in or entered through an unlocked door?  The priority is that someone "came" and that they broke in. 


Unnecessary language:  When language is used that it unnecessary, it is deemed  important to the analysis.  From the subject's first statement to the operator, we find her priority is to make sure they believe someone "came" there, and broke into the home.  This has, from the beginning, raised suspicion as to why this would be necessary for the subject, since it is utterly unnecessary language.  


It is interesting to note that she lists herself before her children. This is not something we expect a mother under an emergency attack to say. 

She began with concealing the gender of the attacker, and continues to do so with the use of "they."

She lists herself before the children, making herself a priority in language over the children.  

00:07:16 911 Operator #1 ...what...

00:08:05 Darlie Routier ...they just stabbed me and my kids...my little boys...



00:09:24 911 Operator #1 ...who...who did...

This attempt to conceal the identity of the attacker is not lost on the operator 

00:11:12 Darlie Routier ...my little boy is dying...

The question is not answered.  In Statement Analysis, we do not judge the tone or inflection.  We do not need to know if she sounded upset or not.  We need only to know her words.  

"The subject is dead; the Statement is alive", meaning that we are only listening to the words she uses, not how they are expressed.  

We note that the subject did not answer the question, making the question "sensitive" to her.

00:28:20 RADIO ...(siren)...


00:29:13 Darlie Routier ...oh my God ...my babies are dying...

Please note that the language has changed again to "my babies"; We must always note the context.  

"Babies" is associated with death.  "my babies are dying"  

Please note the ability to accept "dying"; rather than maternal denial.  This is not expected.  

We expect to hear a mother list her children before herself, as they are more important and we expect her to be in shock and denial, refusing to accept her children dying.  

00:30:12 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...

00:31:09 911 Operator #1 ...what's going on ma'am...

The question is asked:  "What is going on, ma'am?" while emergency services is en route.

00:32:13 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible) ...oh my God...
00:33:49 RADIO ...(tone - signal broadcast)...
00:34:01 Background Voice ...(unintelligible)...
00:35:20 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible) thought he was dead ...oh my God...
00:39:08 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
00:39:29 Darlie Routier ...I don't even know (unintelligible)...

Every word is critical.  Here, she now says she does not "even" know, with the extra word "even" used for emphasis. 

 Does she not know?  

She reported that "somebody" came to her home, and "they broke in" (which is not in chronological order) and "they stabbed me" and "my children"; so she does know what is going on. 

"even know" shows that the word "even", as a dependent word, means she is thinking about something else regarding lack of knowledge here,  while using this word. 



00:40:22 911 Operator #1 ...attention 901 unknown medical emergency 5801...
00:42:23 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
00:43:15 Darlie Routier ...I don't even know (unintelligible)...
00:44:04 911 Operator #1 ...Eagle Drive ...Box 238 ...cross street Linda Vista and Willowbrook ...attention 901 medial emergency...
00:49:28 Darlie Routier ...who was breathing...

"I don't even know...who is breathing" may be the interrupted sentence.  Since it is expected that she would know her son's identity, this does not make sense.  

00:40:10 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
00:51:15 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible) are they still laying there (unintelligible)...

If "they" are her sons, she reports their body posture as "laying there"

00:51:19 911 Operator #1 ...may be possible stabbing ...5801 Eagle Drive ...Box 238 ...cross street Linda Vista and Willowbrook...

00:55:06 Darlie Routier ...oh my God ...what do we do...

The subject has not asked for specific help for her son.  Note what do "we" do, not what she, herself, as biological mother should do to either stop the bleeding or help with the breathing issue.  We look for instinctive maternal reactions for life; helping, healing, etc.  This is not evidenced here. 


As a mother, we expect "what do I do?" as mothers take full charge over their children.  

Note the inclusion of Divinity.  

00:57:17 911 Operator #1 ...time out 2:32...

00:58:26 Darlie Routier ...oh my God...
00:58:28 911 Operator #1 ...stamp me a card Clint...

01:04:07 Darlie Routier ...oh my God ...my baby's dead...

Note again that "baby" is associated with death.  Before her "babies" were "dying"; here, her "baby" is dead.  We note the absence of maternal denial. 

Maternal denial is critical. 


 In missing child cases, an innocent mother will not reference her child in the past tense, as if dead, even often under the pressure of mounting evidence, early on in the case.  For some mothers, it may take years, if at all.  

Here it is instant. 


What has caused Darlie Routier to accept her child's death? What event could cause her to by pass the powerful and expected denial?

Even if the child was, in fact, dead here, we do not expect to hear her accept this. 

We have two elements:

natural maternal denial;
time for processing information. 

She should be in "emergency mode" of heightened alertness due to increase in hormonal activity.  

01:07:08 Darlie Routier ...Damon ...hold on honey...

Here she addresses the child directly.  


01:08:11 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
01:08:22 911 Operator #1 ...hysterical female on the phone...
01:10:03 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible)...
01:10:10 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
01:10:26 911 Operator #1 ...says her child has been stabbed
01:11:28 Darlie Routier ...I saw them Darin...

The name "Darin" is here introduced.  Thus far, her children have not had their names used.  This is not expected.  Motherhood is highly personal, therefore, we expect to hear the pronoun, "I" often, and we expect to hear a mother use her children's names.  

Please note the complete sentence:  "I saw them Darin; oh my God...came in here" is reiterating that which is unnecessary:  that "they" came in there.  Why does she need to report that she "saw" them since they stabbed her and the children?



This indicates the need to persuade, rather than report. 


"them" is plural.  

In this 911 call, Darlie Routier has the need to persuade police and Darin that people "came" there.  


This is a strong indication that no one came there and she is deceptive. 

01:12:21 Darin Routier ...oh my God ...(unintelligible) ...came in here...

01:14:10 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am ...I need you to calm down and talk to me...
01:14:24 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...
01:16:25 Darlie Routier ...ok...
01:16:26 SOUND ...(unintelligible)...
01:17:12 911 Operator #1 ...twice Clint...
01:18:26 Darlie Routier ...didn't you get my address...
01:20:19 911 Operator #1 ...5801 Eagle...


01:22:00 Darlie Routier ...yes ...we need help...

Note help asked for "we" here.  She continues talking to Darin.  She is bleeding and has just reported that she and her sons are bleeding, dying.  

Expected is that her children need help, yet she has declared one of them to be dead already.  



Note what is on her mind: 

01:22:03 RADIO ...(unintelligible) will be enroute code...

01:24:20 Darlie Routier ...Darin ...I don't know who it was...

By using Darin's name repeatedly, it is a signal that she wants his attention.  What she is about to say to him is very important --

Intended and Unintended Recipient 

The "unintended recipient" is more important to the analyst. 

She has a message to deliver. She is delivering it to Darin but more importantly: to those who would suspect her:  the police. 

Since "they" came into her house and stabbed her children and herself, what is this important message that she must deliver, calling him by name, unnecessarily, for emphasis?

 She has not asked for his help with the boys' breathing or bleeding issues, but has focused on "they" who "came" here.  

Here she now emphasizes that she doesn't know their identity. 

She has a need for Darin and police to know that she does not know who did this. 

This is  a very strong indication that she knows who did this. 

 This is what comes out of her mouth rather than talking about how to stop the child's bleeding, or to get her other child, whom she declared dead, to breathe.  This is a strong indicator that her priority is convincing both police and Darin that someone came there.  

Why would a stabbing victim need to persuade police and a person present that someone actually came and did this? 


 She is attempting to persuade, while being recorded, both police and Darin that someone came there.  

It is her priority; not the children.  

01:24:23 911 Operator #1 ...2:33 code...

01:26:15 Darlie Routier ...we got to find out who it was...

Priority -- find out "who" it was, rather than help the children. 

Repetition indicates sensitivity.  


Here, she continues her repetition of "who" the assailant is.  

The identity of the killer is more important to Darlie Routier than the condition of her children.  

She wants police to believe that she does not know them;
She wants police to believe that she wants to know them. 

This takes precedence over asking what she should do to save her child (children).  

01:27:12 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am...

01:28:04 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am listen ...listen to me...
01:29:27 Darlie Routier ...yes ...yes ...(unintelligible)...

01:30:23 RADIO ...(unintelligible) I'm clear ...do you need anything...

01:32:08 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
01:32:20 Darlie Routier ...oh my God...

01:34:22 911 Operator #1 ...do you take the radio Clint...
01:35:23 911 Operator #2 ...yes...
01:36:12 Darlie Routier ...oh my God...
01:36:25 911 Operator #1 ...I...ma'am...
01:38:03 Darlie Routier ...yes...
01:38:17 911 Operator #1 ...I need you to ...
01:38:23 RADIO ...(unintelligible) start that way (unintelligible)... will revise...
01:39:28 911 Operator #1 ...I need you to talk to me...
01:41:21 Darlie Routier ...what ...what ...what...
01:44:25 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...


01:44:28 Darlie Routier ...my babies are dead (unintelligible)...

"Children" and "little boys" were stabbed; but "babies" are dying or are dead.  

This should cause investigators, particularly any investigative psychologist, to go into the topic of motherhood with her and her own abuse history.  

Here she has now declared that her children are beyond the need for help; "my babies are dead."  

This is to accept the unacceptable by an injured mother.  It is narrative building; that is, what police often identify as story telling. 

It is her priority; not gaining medical help for them (they are dead in her language) nor help for herself.  Her priority is to make sure police know:

she does not know who did this.  This is her priority as both mother and caller. 

The analyst should recognize her need to conceal the identity of the attacker. 


01:46:20 RADIO ...go ahead and start that way ...siren code 4 ...advise...
01:47:10 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible)...


01:48:03 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible) do you want honey ...hold on (unintelligible)...

Term of Endearment noted.

This appears to be directed to one of the children.  The child may still be alive and not "dead" as she declared.  

She does not use the child's name.  

01:49:17 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am ...I can't understand you...
01:50:21 Darlie Routier ...yes...
01:51:18 911 Operator #1 ...you're going to have to slow down ...calm down ...and talk to me...

01:52:19 Darlie Routier ...I'm talking to my babies ...they're dying...

Consistent use of "babies" with death.  This speaks to awareness of premeditation. 


She has declared them both "dying" and "dead"and when they are in this state, they are "babies"; that is, 'risk.'

She appears to use scripting language.  

Because her priority is not knowing "who" "they" are, we should pay careful attention to her linguistic disposition towards the brutal killers who came in to her home and stabbed her children and herself.  


01:55:03 911 Operator #1 ...what is going on?


The expected response is that her children are bleeding, or having trouble breathing.  The question is posed to her again.  She has been talking to Darin, and to at least one of the children. We expect to hear her ask for guidance or help on how to stop the bleeding, or how to keep the child breathing: 

01:56:29 Darlie Routier ...somebody came in while I was sleeping ...me and my little boys were sleeping downstairs... 

Alibi Building

She continues with the sensitive repetition of the arrival to her home of assailant or assailants.  Now she continues with more detail:  "while I was sleeping" which addresses time.  

She could not possibly have done this because she was sleeping. 

Please note the singular "somebody" which is also gender neutral. 
By now, she would know if "somebody" (singular) is a man or a woman.  

The use of the gender neutral suggests that she is concealing the gender of the assailant.  

Note "little boys" and not "babies";  they are still alive and not associated with death in her account, so they are not "babies"

Please note that as she has continued to attempt to persuade that someone came there, she has indicated that the topic of someone going there is "sensitive"; to the point of deception.  This indicates that no one came there.  


02:02:00 RADIO ...(unintelligible) I'll be clear...

02:02:20 Darlie Routier ...some man ...came in ...stabbed my babies ...stabbed me ...I woke up ...I was fighting ...he ran out through the garage ...threw the knife down ...my babies are dying ...they're dead ...oh my God...

Note that now she gives us the gender:  "man".  He is "some" man.  The pressure is upon her. 


That he is "some" man is one of those small short words that a liar calls upon, without pre thought, where she has the need to conceal identity and get confidence that with him not being THE killer but only "some" man, there is less chance of finding him because there are so many others. It makes the crime psychologically less personal. 

This is an indicator of deception: 

The assailant has already been introduced, twice, as "somebody" and now should be "the" man; not "some" man.  This is an indicator of deception.   Article do not lie.  When articles are 'confused', deception is likely present.  


That she felt the need to conceal the gender to now suggests that the killer is female. 

 Yet we note 
that he is "some man" is deceptive and indicates withholding of the identity of the assailant.  He should be "the" followed by "man" but more likely harsher terms.  

Her linguistic disposition towards the killer:  soft  

This is always important.  


Next, we note the chronological order:  When someone speaks from memory, chronological order flows easily.  


1.  The most important issue to her is found in the repetition of the word "came" as it is used repeatedly.  Since he would have to have "come" there in order to do all these things.  

2.  Now she changes the language and order from "stabbed me and my children" to "stabbed my babies" with the word "babies" associated with death (above) coming before herself.  
3.  She now adds in that she was stabbed and then she "woke up"
This suggests, by her words, that he had already come, broken in, and stabbed the babies as she slept through it all, and was even stabbed before she woke up.  

When someone is lying, it is difficult to keep track of the chronology of the story because it does not come from memory. 


4.  "I was fighting" rather than "I fought"
5.  He ran through the garage
6.  He threw the knife down
7.  my babies are dying
8.  they're dead

The fact that he "came" there is first, and the babies are last.  Note the continued change from "dying" to "dead"; neither are expected in maternal denial.  


Note that the babies being dead is repeated. 


02:14:23 911 Operator #1 ...ok ...stay on the phone with me...

02:16:11 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
02:17:06 Darlie Routier ...oh my God...
02:17:29 911 Operator #1 ...what happened (unintelligible) dispatch 901...
02:20:15 Darlie Routier ...hold on honey ...hold on...

Note that the absence of the children's names. 


Depersonalization noted.

Note "hold on" is present tense, as if alive and not dead. 

02:22:01 911 Operator #1 ...(unintelligible) who was on (unintelligible)...

02:22:26 911 Operator #2 ...it was (unintelligible) the white phone...
02:23:08 Darlie Routier ...hold on...
02:25:26 911 Operator #2 ...they were wondering when we need to dispatch ...so I sent a double team...
02:25:28 Darlie Routier ...oh my God ...oh my God...
02:28:08 911 Operator #1 ...ok ...thanks...
02:28:21 Darlie Routier ...oh my God...
02:29:20 SOUND ...(unintelligible)...
02:30:01 Darlie Routier ...oh my God...
02:30:20 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am...
02:31:06 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...
02:31:14 911 Operator #1 ...who's there with you...
02:32:15 Darlie Routier ...Karen ...(unintelligible)...

Note "Darin" was first name introduced, and now "Karen" is introduced into her language.   This was not lost on the operator who will now ask who is in the house: 

02:33:15 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am...
02:34:06 Darlie Routier ...what...
02:38:11 911 Operator #1 ...is there anybody in the house ...besides you and your children...
question asked:  Is there anybody in the house besides you and your children?

02:38:11 Darlie Routier ...no ...my husband he just ran downstairs ...he's helping me ...but they're dying ...oh my God ...they're dead...

Note that her first response is "no" since she already said that "somebody" who later became "some man" already "ran" through the garage and dropped the knife. 
Now it is "my husband" (after "no") ran.  
Note that she said he is helping, but again "they're dying" and "they're dead" with acceptance of finality.  

Darlie continues to assert, in repetition, that her children are dead, while giving linguistic indications that they are both not dead yet.  

This suggests planning.  It is taken together with her priority and her alibi building as one overall narrative that she must stick to. 

She did not intend to injure the children; she intended to kill them.  

02:43:24 911 Operator #1 ...ok ...ok ...how many little boys ...is it two boys...
02:46:06 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...

02:46:25 Darlie Routier ...there's two of 'em ...there's two...

not "I have two" or "my sons", but "there's two of them" is to distance herself from her own children.  


02:48:18 RADIO ...what's the cross street on that address on Eagle...
02:50:15 Darlie Routier ...oh my God ...who would do this...

The subject continues to press the sensitive issue of identity. This is her priority: not letting police know who did it, and trying to keep police from suspecting her. 

 She saw "who" did this and the need to continue to repeat herself over and over shows that the sensitivity is due to decepetion. 

note the need to persuade what she called attention to by using Darin's name earlier:   that she does not know the identity of the killer.  

This need to persuade via repetition tells us that she knows the identity of the "person", and the "person" is female, of whom she has no linguistic animosity towards.  


02:53:13 911 Operator #1 ...(unintelligible) listen to me ...calm down ...(unintelligible)...

02:53:21 Darlie Routier ...I feel really bad ...I think I'm dying...

This is critical.  She reports how she feels, and it is "bad", qualified by "really".  
But it is her next sentence which shows deception:

"I think I'm dying" shows weakness.  She only "thinks" that she is dying, but knows that the "babies are dying".  


Darlie Routier did not intend suicide.  


This should lead investigators to check her wounds versus the wounds of her "babies", with hers being much less, so much less, in fact, that she would not have the same certainty of death that she had for her babies. 

An innocent mother would not accept her babies "death", even in panic.  


Darlie Routier knows that she is not dying. 


 Darlie Routier knows her children will die, or are dead. 
 She accepts the unacceptable.  This is an indicator of guilt, just as it is when a child is reported kidnapped or missing and the mother references the child in the past tense, as if dead.  It goes against instinct and is indicative of guilt.

03:08:00 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...

03:08:08 Darlie Routier ...I gotta just sit here forever ...oh my God...

Note body language position mentioned.  Is she growing impatient?  
"I" just gotta sit here showing concern for self, but not her children who are "dead" already.  

Abusive parents are not only selfish, they are impatient because patience requires self sacrifice of time and desire. 

03:11:14 911 Operator #1 ...2:35...

03:12:05 Darie Routier ...who would do this ...who would do this...

Since she "saw" who did this, she knows the answer.  She repeats the question as a point of sensitivity.  This is yet another indicator that she knows the answer and wants to persuade the police that she does not. 

There is no "why?" asked, but "who" again.  The identity of the killer is very sensitive to Darlie. 

Thus far, her language has revealed:

a.  She knows the killer
b.  The killer is female
c.  She does not think negatively about the killer
d.  The killer planned to kill the children
e.  The killer did not plan to kill Darlie
f. Darlie wants to conceal the identity of the killer by both gender and plurality of killers.

The answer, "seven and five" comes from memory.

  Most parents will always give the chronological order of their children.  

03:22:17 911 Operator #1 ...ok...
03:23:08 Darlie Routier ...oh my God ...oh my God ...oh ...he's dead...

Here she continues to invoke Deity, though not asking the operator what she should do to save her child, and we have her declaring one of them to be dead.  


03:29:02 911 Operator #1 ...calm down ...can you...
03:29:03 Darlie Routier ...oh God ...Devon no ...oh my God...

Note that "Devon" is now mentioned for the first time, in the negative, "no", as, perhaps, the one she referred to with "he's dead", accepting the death.  



03:30:27 SOUND ...(dog barking)...

03:35:02 911 Operator #1 ...is your name Darlie...
03:36:11 Darlie Routier ...yes...
03:36:26 911 Operator #1 ...this is her...
03:37:09 911 Operator #1 ...is your husband's name Darin...
03:38:22 Darlie Routier ...yes ...please hurry ...God they're taking forever...

Here is the first "hurry" that she uses. 

We expect to hear impatience and helps specifically asked for on behalf of the victim; that is, directly for the victims. 

she has to "sit there forever", showing impatience, but does not ask, specifically, for help for the children. 

She does not ask for first aid directions for the children.  


03:41:20 911 Operator #1 ...there's nobody in your house ...there was ...was...

03:44:05 911 Operator #1 ...you don't know who did this...

Note that the Operator #1 has been listening to her repeat "who did this" over and over 

03:45:19 Police Officer ...look for a rag...
03:46:11 Darlie Routier ...they killed our babies...

Note that the "somebody" (singular, gender neutral) became "some man" (note lack of article, and now introduces gender, and is singular)
now becomes "they"

This "person" is now "man" and "they"

                           Deception indicated


She is unable to stay consistent with singular or plural attackers.  Here, they are plural. 


Darlie Routier is lying about who killed her children.  

Darlie Routier has given indication that the killer is female. 

Darlie Routier has shown a soft disposition towards the female killer.  

Darlie Routier does not ask why her children were killed.  

03:48:03 Police Officer ...lay down ...ok ...just sit down ...(unintelligible)

03:51:11 911 Operator #1 ...(sounds of typing on computer keyboard)...

03:52:13 Darlie Routier ...no ...he ran out ...uh ...they ran out in the garage ...I was sleeping...

Note the order:

1.  He ran out

2.  They ran out
3.  I was sleeping--alibi for Darlie should be unnecessary unless she has a need for an alibi

Deception indicated


She is unable to keep her story straight.  

Is it one man?  
She is unable to keep her chronological order straight because it does not come from experiential memory.  

03:54:09 911 Operator #1 ...(unintelligible)...

03:56:19 Darlie Routier ...my babies over here already cut ...can I (unintelligible)...

"babies" are not just "cut" but have "already" been cut.  This speaks to timing.  


03:59:29 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible) phone is right there...
04:01:28 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible)...
04:03:01 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...

Darlie Routier has shown her priority is to prove that someone came and did this.  Alibi building is priority.  She now has the presence of mind, while "thinking" that she is dying, to instruct police on how to conduct their investigation:  


04:05:02 Darlie Routier ...ya'll look out in the garage ...look out in the garage ...they left a knife laying on...

She instructs them twice to look in the garage.  

This is important to her.  This takes precedence, linguistically, over the children of whom she did not ask for first aid directions to save their lives.  

Note that "They" is plural and note that "some man" left a knife. 

04:08:21 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...
04:09:19 911 Operator #1 ...there's a knife ...don't touch anything...

This would not normally be a non issue, especially since she is "sitting" there and "thinking" she is "dying", but given her repetition, the 911 Operator is acutely aware that something is very wrong with this caller, so the operator says what would not seem necessary:  don't touch the knife. 


04:11:18 Darlie Routier ...I already touched it and picked it up...

She anticipates and seeks to preempt the investigation which will show that  her DNA will be on the knife. Her concern is self. 

While her two sons lay bleeding out life, Darlie Routier has the presence of mind to remind police that she was sleeping, and that her fingerprints will be on the knife that was just used to kill her children.  


04:12:05 RADIO ...10-4...
04:15:20 911 Operator #1 ...who's out there ...is anybody out there...
04:16:07 Police Officer ...(unintelligible)...


04:17:06 Darlie Routier ...I don't know ...I was sleeping...

Ignorance of the attack due to sleeping is part of the alibi building in her story.  

How important is it to her?

a.  Count the number of times she repeats it.  
b.  Then count the number of times she asked for help for her children.  

Subtract b from a and you will see priority.  

What is most important to us we dedicate our words to.  

Exasperated, an analyst once remarked about the number of parents "asleep" when their children have disappeared or have been murdered.  

04:18:14 911 Operator #1 ...ok ma'am ...listen ...there's a police officer at your front door ...is your front door unlocked...
04:22:11 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...
04:22:15 Darlie Routier ...yes ma'am ...but where's the ambulance...
04:24:21 911 Operator #1 ...ok...
04:24:23 Darlie Routier ...they're barely breathing...

Note that previously they were "dying" and "dead", but here, they are "barely breathing" but instead of asking for instruction on how to help them breath, or to stop the blood, she kept repeating how she did not know "who" did this.  

04:26:17 Darlie Routier ...if they don't get it here they're gonna be dead ...my God they're (unintelligible) ...hurry ...please hurry...

We have seen the denial of maternal instincts and we have seen the natural denial of negative results.  


04:31:13 911 Operator #1 ...ok ...they're ...they're...
04:32:18 Police Officer ...what about you...
04:33:06 911 Operator #1 ...is 82 out on Eagle...
04:34:18 Darlie Routier ...huh...
04:35:12 Darin Routier ...they took (unintelligible) ...they ran (unintelligible)...

Here she speaks of the killers, again, who are without description, but plural.  This is a neutral (here) disposition which in context, is negative. Where she conceals gender, it is a (+) LD, making it in context of murder, acutely negative. 




04:36:28 911 Operator #2 ...(unintelligible)...
04:37:08 Darlie Routier ...we're at Eagle ...5801 Eagle ...my God and hurry...
04:41:03 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...
04:41:22 911 Operator #1 ...82 ...are you out...
04:42:25 Police Officer ...nothing's gone Mrs. Routier...
04:44:10 Darlie Routier ...oh my God ...oh my God ...why would they do this...
04:48:03 RADIO ...(unintelligible) to advise (unintelligible) 200...
04:50:18 Police Officer ...(unintelligible) the problem Mrs. Routier...
04:50:21 911 Operator #1 ...what'd he say...
04:51:29 Darlie Routier ...why would they do this...
04:53:08 Darlie Routier ...I'm (unintelligible)...
04:54:07 911 Operator #1 ...ok ...listen ma'am ...need to ...need to let the officers in the front door ...ok...
04:59:11 Darlie Routier ...what...
05:00:04 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am..
05:00:22 Darlie Routier ...what ...what...
05:01:15 911 Operator #1 ...need to let the police officers in the front door...

The operator got her attention with "listen, ma'am" and prepared Darlie to know they were coming in the front door.  Darlie said, "what? what?" so the 911 operator repeated that the police were coming in the front door. 

What reaction did this trigger in Darlie Routier?  Please take careful note of what is of concern to her, while her children are "barely breathing":  


05:04:21 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible) his knife was lying over there and I already picked it up...

Linguistic Disposition (LD) 

She does not express concern for her children, but about her fingerprints and DNA being on the knife:  

1.  It is "his" knife.  This gives ownership of the knife to the "somebody" and "some man".  Note that it is singular, even though she has said, "they" did this. 

2.  Note "knife was lying".  Principle:

When an inanimate object is reported to by "lying, standing, sitting" etc, the passive language suggests that the subject placed it there. 


Knives cannot "lie down", nor "stand" nor "sit"; so when this language is employed, it is a verbal signal that the speaker (subject) is responsible for the placement.  This is commonly seen in murder weapons and in drugs. 


"The drugs were sitting on the cabinet" is an example.  


3.  "already" attempts to shift blame:  it was already touched by her before the operator warned her.  


Did she do this while she was "sleeping" or was this part of the "I was fighting"?


Deception indicated


She has established that when her fingerprints are found on the knife, that it was already addressed.  The mother's instinct should be on the children, which it is not.  This mother's instinct is self preservation and alibi building, and an attempt to persuade all that someone did this, and it was not her. 


The need to deceive is an indicator of guilt. 


05:08:19 911 Operator #1 ...ok ...it's alright ...it's ok...
05:09:20 Darlie Routier ...God ...I bet if we could have gotten the prints maybe ...maybe...

She is dying from being attacked after watching her sons dying from being attacked yet uses the language, "I bet", indicating a disconnect (a linguistic disconnect) from the attack reported. 



05:13:18 Police Officer ...(unintelligible)...

05:14:18 RADIO ...82 ...we'll be (unintelligible)...
05:17:12 Darlie Routier ...ok ...it'll be...
05:18:08 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am ...hang on ...hang on a second...

She next turns to Darin and has the need to attempt to persuade him of the same:  

05:19:09 Darlie Routier ...somebody who did it intentionally walked in here and did it Darin...

1.  "Somebody" returns to the gender neutral.  Deception indicated.  Once someone has been identified by gender ("some man") returning to gender neutral is an indication of attempt to conceal identity. 


2.  "intentionally"  This is an unnecessary word and shows that she knew the killer's intent.  It indicates planning. 


3.  "walked"  the inclusion of the killer's body posture ("walking") indicates an increase in tension for the subject at this part of the story. 


Her willful attempt to persuade that someone came in indicates that the killer was there all the time. 


Her attempt to conceal the identity of the killer indicates knowledge of the killer's identity. 


The identity of the killer causes an increase of tension. 


The mother accepts the children's deaths, even while they were still breathing. 


The mother's concern is her alibi and not the welfare of the children.  Her assertion of them being dead is strong, but of her dying it is weak.  This shows intimate knowledge of the stab wounds' impact upon the victims; something the killer would know.  


The mother knows the intentions of the killer. 


05:20:19 911 Operator #1 ...82 ...10-9...
05:21:23 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...
05:22:28 911 Operator #1 ...received...
05:23:05 Darlie Routier ...there's nothing touched...
05:24:12 911 Operator #1 ...ok ma'am...
05:25:13 Darlie Routier ...there's nothing touched...
05:26:20 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...
05:28:00 Darlie Routier ...oh my God...

05:35:23 911 Operator #1 ...ok ...go talk to him ...ok...
05:38:03 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...


The Linguistic Dispostion towards the killer is positive. She seeks to protect the identity while reducing the responsibility. 

Humans under scrutiny and pressure do not like to accuse self after committing a crime. 

Darlie Routier is the killer. 

The language of the 911 call shows:


1.  The caller has guilty knowledge of the murder of her children.

2.  The caller has the need to persuade police that someone came to the home. This means someone did not come to her home, but was always there. 
3.  The caller cannot keep her pronouns or articles straight.  
4.  The caller cannot keep the chronology of her story consistent. 
5.  The caller has intimate knowledge of the killer's intentions and thoughts. 
6.  The caller is more concerned with evidence pointing to her than her children's lives. 

Deception is indicated in this call by Darlie Routier.  


The language shows that she, Darlie Routier, is the "somebody" (gender neutral) and the "they" (mitigation of guilt by psychologically assimilating with others) who knifed her children.  


The language shows that her wounds were not lethal, but her "babies" wounds would indeed be; that is, known at the time of this call. 

Linguistic Disposition: 

She is concerned more about protecting the identity of the killer than she has empathy for the children. 

Self over children is commonly found in the language of child abusers.

Incongruence noted when Darlie says twice, "there's nothing touched", moments after telling the dispatcher she already picked up the knife. It is also awkwardly worded, in a passive way. Darlie Routier is right where she deserves to be!

Mouse74 said...

Off topic, but recently saw the following post on a group page. The wording is unexpected to me, seems weird the mention of a white truck, but no mention of who or how many raped her? It's very minimalized, but maybe this is shock? Am I off? Sometimes I worry about trying to apply SA in scenarios when not appropriate, so looking for a self check here.

"Hey ladies. Went out walking last night. A white truck pulled up and kidnapped me. Raped me. Just got back from filing a report. Be careful out there ladies"

Jean Paul said...

The truck kidnapped her?

Anon said...

I will only trust the SA community’s skills when they are able to detect fake confessions made by intelligent people not just the retarded Memphis 3 guy. Signing off!

Mouse74 said...

Sometimes Peter chimes in, which is gold. I don't expect it though, he's "kinda" busy..haha.

Anon, a blog is never all or nothing. Some opinions are helpful, some are not. I am able to tell the difference. There are many brilliant adds to the comments, and then there are yours.

Jean Paul...yes, exactly. Isn't that odd casual wording for a kidnapping and rape?

Unknown said...

About Darlie's "ya'll" in referring to the police officers; I've heard people say 'ya'll' in special situations when they're trying to gain the friendship or initiate a relationship with other people who they'll need for help in the future. I think it's always strange to say 'ya'll' in an emergency.

Unknown said...

I agree LuciaD, she awkwardly avoided saying "He didn't touch anything!" She didn't assign guilt to anyone not touching anything.

Mouse74 said...

Anon, what is your account name? It's kinda hard to know who you are with a name like Anon.
"Peter even said I'm the best". Are you for real? HAHA.

I was referring to your one comment made to me above. You then drug me into...well I don't know what you drug me into. Alas, you have nothing more to say, so I shall never find out. Oh the humanity.



Hey Jude said...


If the people who run those groups know about Statement Analysis but choose not to seek analyses, or to ignore those which are already freely available here, then I agree, they are not seeking truth, or not seeking very well, as the analyses are easy to find.

If you don’t know about SA, it’s easy to be drawn in by advocates, especially where the nature of a crime seems inconceivable. Before SA, I doubted that Darlie Routier could have killed her sons, but now I am assured that not only could she have,killed them, but that she did; seeing through the lens of Statement Analysis makes a difference because emotional responses begin to give way to rational understanding.

I looked at one of those websites - some people had been exonerated due to advances in DNA forensics, so I can’t agree that the advocates’ motive is (always) to eradicate the consequences of murder, but in other cases, such as Darlie Routier’s, where SA is not even taken into consideration, despite it has been freely accessible here, then the advocacy is against truth and justice. If I think about that for very long, it will turn out that the opening statement, though it sounds extreme, is true, because if a group knowingly advocates for one person against justice, it cannot be said to be seeking truth, and it can be said to be seeking to eradicate the consequences of murder.

What are the chances that those who research every available source for material to strengthen their cases have not discovered SA, or the analyses about Darlie Routier, yet chosen to overlook them? Supporters of Darlie Routier should consider if their choice not to include narrative-challenging links to analyses of her 911 call and statements is an ingrained emotional response rather than a rational response.

———-

Anon, I wasn’t being snippy with you about CW - I was being snippy with myself. It just goes way off topic and if it’s not analysis, or what anyone else is thinking about, it’s probably just annoying.

David said...

Im not convinced she’s guilty from the 911. She sounds totally hysterical which is expected. What mother wouldnt be saying “Oh my God” over & over again if their kids were just stabbed?
The confusion whether they are dying or dead is an expression of fear. Wouldnt any mother think “Oh my God is my kid dead?” after they had been stabbed and are not breathing/bleeding? Wouldnt it be kind of bizarre to feel relaxed and say “I bet he’s just fine”?! Comparing it to a missing child case doesnt seem appropriate as they are not the same thing.
I agree the part about “we have to find out who did it!” seems unexpected & strange prioritizing.
I dont know what to make of the 911 call.

Statement Analysis Blog said...

1. Innocent parents will not attempt to conceal the identity of the killer.

2. Linguistic Disposition between bio parent and child at risk is the same element-/its not a comparison of cases.

VLW said...

Everything is off and weird about this case, but I still have some doubts. From one documentary I watched, there were some points brought up about a quite similar crime that had happened recently in the area, and a few other pertinent points I've now forgotten, but they got me wondering. It's fishy as all get out, that's for sure.

On a negative note, though, regarding SA, I can't help but remember the Isabel Celis case and the bizarre 911 call from the father in that case which everyone (hey, me, too!) jumped on as painting him deceptive. And yet the case has been solved since and that father was not the murderer.

Denmark said...

I have always wondered if a killer plays out the scenario after the murder, if he will not show deception?
Lets say, she has killed her children, they lay on the sofa, they are dead.

What if she then plays out the whole thing, discovering an intruder (who is not there) physically fighting an (makebelieve) intruder, running around, trying to save her children.

Then, she will be able to tell from memory


The first time I thought this, was the case of a military doctor (i think he was) who killed his two small daughters and wife (i think she was pregnant, they seem to always be when the husbands kill them) It was in the late sixties, I think.
He blamed the Manson cult.

Kitt said...

Jeffrey McDonald, I believe.

Mike Dammann said...

Denmark: I call it mind-over-matter mode where you convince yourself of an alternate reality fitting what you want the public to believe. Sort of like method acting. Many may disagree with me, but I am convinced there are some people who will be able to deceive better than others.

Alex said...

I’m spotting a SCAN cluster in your 3rd sentence. I don’t know what that indicates about the whole of your narrative. However, I would yes you lied in your earlier statements. You’e just very crafty.

I would trust others over myself to analyze it further.

What's your strongest memories of Madeleine from that day (the last day)?

Gerry McCann: I think the strongest memory I have is of really, the photograph that was the last photograph we have of her and, errr... you know, we'd had a lovely holiday. Madeleine was having a great time and just after lunch we went over to the pool area and, errr... she was sitting there paddling in the pool and I was sitting next to her and she turned round and she's just beaming. And then the... the last time I saw her, which was probably minutes before she was taken, when she was lying asleep, and it's terrible how... I've said this a few times but I had one of those poignant moments as a parent where... I went into her room, and the door was open, and I... I just paused for a second and I looked, and she was sound asleep, and I thought how beautiful she was. The twins were asleep in the... in their cots and I thought how lucky we were. And within, you know, minutes that was shattered!

I just watched the special on her. Darlie still states she didn’t murder her children. I believe her. Her attorneys are in process of getting The bloody fingerprint analyzed after 22 years. It is not Darlies or any one else. They are also getting the sock analyzed too. I think the real killer is still out there

A man who told investigators the 4-year-old daughter of his girlfriend was abducted by three men in a pickup truck was arrested near Houston on Saturday in connection with her disappearance as officials revealed her blood was discovered in his apartment.

The Houston Police Department said in a statement that 26-year-old Derion Vence, who had lived with Maleah Davis and her mother, was arrested at his brother's home in Sugar Land, located southwest of Houston.

Vance was charged with tampering with evidence, specifically a human corpse, according to police. Dogs trained to find cadavers reacted to the trunk of his silver Nissan Altima, Pat Stayton, a prosecutor with the Harris County District Attorney's Office, said at Vence's probable cause court hearing Saturday night.

"At this point in time those are the charges we have filed and I can't say any more than that," Houston police spokesman Kese Smith told The Associated Press.

Blood evidence found at Vence's apartment has been linked to Maleah, and he was also seen on surveillance video carrying a full laundry basket from the apartment, stuffed with a full garbage bag as well as multiple bottles of bleach, according to police.

Vence had told police last Saturday that three men in a pickup truck abducted him, Maleah and his 2-year-old son before freeing him and the boy. But Sugar Land police, who initially interviewed him, said his story kept changing and was inconsistent.

The 26-year-old had reported that car was taken in the abduction but surveillance video showed that vehicle was used to drop Vence off later at a hospital, where he first reported the abduction, police said in a news release.

On Thursday, Vence's silver 2011 Nissan Altima was located in Missouri City, Texas. Houston police said the laundry basket that Vence was caught on camera carrying from his apartment was found in the trunk of the Nissan, along with a gas can.

A Houston Police spokesperson said authorities have still not found the girl and the investigation is continuing. After his arrest, bond was set at $999,999 with a court date scheduled for Monday, Fox 26 reported.

Maleah's mother, Brittany Bowens, said through a spokesman that Vence is her former fiance. Bowens appeared outside her apartment Friday as Quanell X, a local civil rights activist, addressed reporters on her behalf.

Quanell X told Fox 26 after Vence's arrest the mother feels like she failed her daughter.

"She’s devastated that she knows she could have done a whole lot more in better protecting Maleah on several different fronts," Quanell X told Fox 26. "But, of course, hindsight is 20/20. But, the telltale signs were there and so the mother is beating herself up."

Police have described Vence as Maleah's stepfather. But Quanell X said that Vence and Bowens were recently in a fight and she broke off their engagement.

Child Protective Services removed Maleah and her brothers from the home Vence and Bowens shared in August after the girl suffered a head wound, but the children were returned in February, according to an agency spokeswoman.

Bowens had told KTRTK-TV the injury was determined to have been caused by a fall.

HOUSTON – Trained dogs detected the scent of human decomposition in the vehicle of a man arrested in connection with the disappearance of a 4-year-old Texas girl, according to a prosecutor.

Derion Vence, 26, remained jailed Sunday on a $1 million bond after being arrested a day earlier on a charge of tampering evidence, specifically a human corpse. His next court appearance is set for Monday.

Houston police said investigators have not found Maleah Davis and the investigation is continuing. Authorities have declined to say whether they believe Vence killed Maleah. But prosecutors said in court documents filed Saturday that Vence could face additional charges, including murder.

The investigation began after Vence told police that men in a truck on May 4 had abducted him, Maleah and his 2-year-old son a day earlier, but had freed him and the boy. Vence told investigators he was left in the Houston suburb of Sugar Land and walked to a hospital, where he reported the girl's abduction.

Sugar Land police, who initially interviewed him, said his story kept changing and didn't add up.

Vence, who had lived with Maleah and her mother, reported that his silver Nissan Altima was taken in the abduction, but surveillance video showed that vehicle was used to drop Vence off at the hospital. Police found the car Thursday.

Dogs trained to find cadavers reacted to the trunk of the car, Pat Stayton, a prosecutor with the Harris County District Attorney's Office, said at Vence's probable cause court hearing Saturday night.

Surveillance video from a neighbor showed Vence carrying a large, blue laundry basket with a large trash bag from his apartment on May 3, Stayton said. Vence returned three minutes later without the basket and later he was seen leaving the apartment with cleaning supplies, including bleach.

In the silver Nissan, police found a laundry basket that looked like the one Vence took out of his apartment, Stayton said.

"Both of the dogs reacted to the trunk of the silver Nissan that the defendant had driven and that the blue laundry basket was recovered from, indicating that the dogs were responding to the scent of human decomposition in the vehicle," Stayton said.

Investigators also found blood at the apartment, both in the hallway leading to the bathroom and on surfaces inside the bathroom, Stayton said.

At Saturday night's hearing, Vence said he planned to hire a defense attorney.

Rodney Brown, an attorney appointed to represent Vence only for Saturday's hearing, had asked a magistrate judge to set bond at $5,000, saying Vence was a low flight risk and had lived in Houston most of his life.

Stayton argued that Vence was a flight risk and there was "evidence of deception on the part of the defendant with regard to information he gave to police."

Police have described Vence as Maleah's stepfather, but Maleah's mother, Brittany Bowens, said through a spokesman that Vence is her former fiance. Quanell X, a local civil rights activist who spoke to reporters on Bowens' behalf on Friday, also said that Vence had abused Maleah.

Child Protective Services removed Maleah and her brothers from the home Vence and Bowens shared in August after the girl suffered a head wound, but the children were returned in February, according to an agency spokeswoman.

Could someone analyze this statement? Is it truthful? “I am not responsible for the things that happened at ————. I wasn’t there. I didn’t do it.”

Sandy said...

It seems Maleah’s stepfather showed many signs of being deviant & dangerous including sending penis pics to men. That is a RED FLAG of a potential molester & killer.
So very sad.

Habundia said...

"Bowens had told KTRTK-TV the injury was determined to have been caused by a fall."

Why would it have to be "determined" the injury caused by 'a fall's
I know it's only one sentence but I would have expected to hear how she fell or when in the same sentence.
The mother clearly was aware of the abuse inflicted on her daughter. 's fall's can be accidental yet also intentional ...it is not said which it was....

Father of misssing Kenneth Howard, twenty two months old:

“I’m gonna put up five thousand dollars for somebody, anybody return him, no questions asked.”

“I jus’ hope he comes home safe.”

“Yeah, it’s just like he disappeared, it’s - no sign, no nothing.”

“I’ve slept maybe two hours in - since Sunday evening.”

“It’s just uh, not knowing what to do. We’ve searched everywhere we can think of, and they’ve had dog teams in here, and nothing’s showing up.”

“I’ve eaten one Bologna sandwich since Sunday”.

“Well, he’d go from morning to night full blast. He’d never slow down.”

Interviewer: what would you like to see happen right now?
EH: Him to come home safe, healthy.

The above is transcript from this video - the interview has been edited in such a way that the interviewer’s questions are mostly not included - the comments appear between interviwer’s commentary.


Below are extracts from the accompanying print report:


Kenneth Howard was last seen around 7:30 p.m. Sunday night. Family members said they believe he may have walked out the back door of his home.
"I would just like to see him come home safe," Elden said. "I guess it's adrenaline. I can't rest, can't eat. I've ate one bologna sandwich since Sunday."

Outside Kenneth's home early Tuesday morning, his father, Elden Howard described how emotional this has been for him and his wife.
"She's in pretty bad shape too, she'd tore all to pieces. It's just not knowing what to do. We've searched everywhere we can think of they've had dog teams in here, nothing's showing up."

—-
When asked about what he thinks happened, Elden said, "yeah, it's just like he disappeared. No sign, no nothing. That's the reason I'm started to think, if we can't find him, somebody's picked him up."

——

"Well he'd go from morning to night full blast, he'd never slow down. He'd take about an hour's nap during through the day, and got the rest of the time until about 9:30 or 10 o'clock at night. Every day he's like that," Elden said while describing his son's personality.

——

"I'd say there are 40 or 50 people in the hills searching all day," he said. "Best thing I could've seen is everybody showing up."

In my opinion, the father left him at this location. 1,750 feet away from his home at the top of a CLIFF!!!!!

If he had fallen off the cliff as the father intended, his body would have been “scattered”.
I think they need to investigate for sexual abuse.
There is no way a 22 monther walked there by himself!

Shared 5/12/19 with caption:
“Beware the man that has nothing to lose, for he has nothing to protect.”

"Hello,
Over the course of the last week, through introspection that should have happened MANY years ago, I have come to some stark revelations about my character.
It is a testament to my utter arrogance that these revelations had not come sooner.
You see, I believed myself to be a good guy.
I HAVE NOT been a good guy.
In fact, I have been a pretty bad guy throughout my life.
I have used people for money.
I have betrayed MANY people and much trust.
I have sold drugs.
I have tax delinquencies.
I have debts.
I have abused my body with cigarettes, drugs and alcohol.
I have been abusive to people WHO LOVED ME, including my FAMILY.
I have I have EXPECTED help without putting proper WORK in to help myself.
I have used money to gamble and lose, instead of using it to further my gifts.
Earlier this week, I committed an act so flippantly, without thought, that will become synonymous with short sightedness and petty, vile greed, and in the end, has cost me everything.
I will publicly disclose the details at the right time.
You see, while I supposedly wanted to make America great, I have not put much work AT ALL into making MYSELF great.
I have wasted much money on speculation and gambling, and I have gambled away my future.
Time that could have been utilized to nurture my many gifts has been wasted on frivolity.
And while it’s true I have spent many, many hours of research in disseminating information about bad actors, I have had SO LITTLE CARE for introspection of MY OWN actions.
It is a testament to my sheer arrogance that I had not come to these revelations sooner.
To the Q movement I am so sorry I have brought shame upon the greatest military operation of all time.
But really, I have only brought shame upon myself.
And while it’s true I have outed many pedophiles that were former FRIENDS, I remained in their sphere for much longer than I should have, and attempted to gain from them AFTER I knew about their actions.
And in my SHEER ARROGANCE I did not even reflect on this fact.
I have been a great betrayer of trust.
A squanderer of gifts and good will.
Q says they give people enough rope to hang themselves, and I have hung myself.
I have told people in the Trump administration that I am willing to admit to my many crimes in a public setting, and committed to execution, in a public setting.
A nation cannot suffer its traitors, and I am no exception.
To those I have inspired, KEEP UP THE FIGHT, it is noble work.
However, I have not been a noble man.
I am an imposter."

Bobcat said...

Part Two

"To those who have offered their trust and care, I apologize.
I have wronged many people throughout my life.
And while I have many talents, I have not utilized them.
To Jesus, I am sorry I have betrayed you AGAIN.
This time the shoe is on the other foot though, and I am happy the earth shall see THE JUSTICE it has waited so long for.
Jesus, you offered so much, and instead of reveling in your wisdom, I used my attention on darkness.
President Trump, I have betrayed you and squandered good will, and I now shall forever be known for my actions.
These revelations have come WAY too late, but I am NOT so arrogant NOW that I would deny them.
In the end I shall be remembered for my actions, and not my hollow words.
To the MANY people I have acted abusively towards, I am very, very sorry.
To my former friends I have used and betrayed, I am sorry.
To those I have deceived, I am sorry, although I must say, in my SHEER ARROGANCE, I did not even realize that I had been the bad actor all along.
And while it’s true I threw myself into a very dangerous situation, outing the truth of Hollywood, I did not REFLECT ON MY OWN TRUTHS AND MANY, MANY SHORTCOMINGS.
It is one thing to know what is right, to know the truth, and an entirely different thing to act in an upright manner.
I have been lacking in gratitude, humility, honor, service, and proper care for others.
I have not honored the light of God within.
Also, it should be noted that I have recently been made to believe that I am the reincarnation of Judas Iscariot, the great betrayer.
And while I could have utilized this period of the great awakening to AWAKEN myself, I have used it focused on the darkness OF OTHERS and not the darkness WITHIN.
To be clear, I was SO ARROGANT that I did not see the darkness within, or even reflect that I could have darkness within.
I actually believed that I have been acting upright.
It is very, very sad, but I hope that the people of the world can utilize my folly in a positive light.
That you all may use my mistakes as an example for personal growth.
See the light in others.
Nurture the light in yourself.
This lesson has come too late for me, but perhaps it can inspire you.
I will be using the remainder of my time on earth to atone for my transgressions, and to seek the light within, in others and myself.

Return to THE LIGHT"

...because this is a mother who killed one of her children...because of jealousy...i compare the emotions in regard of the killer's identity... in the zachary's death, the grand parents...are not using soft words about the killer's identity. (first she killed the baby's father's) .and it make sens now reading how Peter is explaining the Darlie routier 911 call...i wish our legal system was harder on the mother...and let the US legal system have jury panel to decide on her guilt... she killed the father in USA...but was extradite to Canada...the grand parents..US citizens... work on changing law in Canada....and did it..
this can be a work on story from your part m.Hyatt .?

Update:

I wish we had the interviewers question's (context) we could then get a better insight into her words / language she uses and her priorities.

HOUSTON (FOX 26) - The mother of a missing 4-year-old at the center of a citywide search is telling her side in an interview with FOX 26 News reporter Damali Keith.

“I feel like I'm in a nightmare, a really bad nightmare that I can't come out of,” says Brittany Bowens.

Unfortunately, this is Bowens’ reality. Her 4-year-old daughter, Maleah Davis, has been missing for nearly two weeks.

“I just feel so broken. I do. My heart feels so broken,” she cried.

Bowens’ ex-fiance Derion Vence is arrested in connection with her daughter's disappearance. She has this to say to him.

“You hid from me and you left me. I have no feelings for that man. I don't have no feelings for him [at this point]. <<, is she going to have feelings for him in the future) He was the last person to see my daughter. I seen you when you came home. You didn't say anything to me. I stood up for you. I wanted to believe your story,” Bowens said.

Bowens is referring to Vence’s claim of being knocked out by kidnappers after he says he, Maleah and their youngest son were all abducted and only Maleah never made it away from them.

“I know it didn't make sense, but [as a mother], << distancing language) I would rather hear that than to hear that somebody I loved killed my daughter. I would rather hear that,” she said.

But was someone she loved hurting her daughter long before the 4-year-old girl disappeared?

According to criminal court records, little Maleah suffered a traumatic brain injury so severe, she had to have surgery.

“It was like, ‘What? What do you mean she had an injury?’ All I know is when she fell from the…” Bowens began to explain but was stopped by community activist Quanell X.

“No. See, now you're getting into CPS stuff. No,” Quanell X says. He goes on to say, “She's learned a lot now since this unfortunate tragedy. She did not know he was bringing Maleah back home when she should have been in daycare.”

So does Bowens feel something had happened inside their home that she didn't protect Maleah from?

“I'm not sure. I was always home. Always home. I didn't start working until January, because I was in school and I only went to school a couple days out of the week,” Bowens answers.

It was at the family's apartment that detectives say surveillance video shows Maleah walking in and never coming out. Instead, Vence is seen coming out with a laundry basket with a trash bag inside.

“My first thoughts were, ‘We just did laundry. What are you doing with that basket?’”

Bowens says she was in Massachusetts at her father’s funeral at the time.

Investigators have found Maleah's blood at the apartment, a place that was once home, but Bowens realizes it may be the last place her daughter was alive.

“I stayed there one night, and I laid in her bed. I laid in her bed. As a mother, I want to have hope. That hope is giving me a peace of mind. I have to believe that (Maleah is still alive), but at the same time, I have to be realistic too, that she could possibly be gone,” Bowens said.

Bowens says she’s grateful for all of the people searching for Maleah and supporting them with balloon releases and vigils. She also says she’s praying her daughter, one way or another, will be found.

Verbal leakage indicates sexual abuse of the victim & that the body has been scattered.

Leakage is highly subjective which is why caution and restraint are needed. It is educated guess work; not deception detection.

The boy's father, who had offered a $5,000 reward for Howard's safe return, told WYMT that his son's safe recovery was the "best thing that ever happened to me."

"Disbelief, for a while," Elden Howard said. "'Til they told me they were sure it was him and stuff, and I'd seen a picture. I said, 'that's my boy.' Tickled me to death. Best thing that ever happened to me in my life."

Brittany Bowens and community activist Quanell X sat down with ABC13's Chauncy Glover

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- For the first time since making bombshell allegations against her ex-fiance, the mother of 4-year-old Maleah Davis is speaking with ABC13 Eyewitness News about the search for answers in her daughter's disappearance.

Questions (interviewer) with reply's (Brittany Bowens). I don't think this is edited.

duration 23:35

She has guilt, and also, in my opinion, guilty knowledge of what has happened to Maleah, if not involved directly and or the cover the up.

Wow!!

Last missing girl was “Maleah” pronounced “Maliyah”,

Please someone explain this!

OT Update:

Missing toddler’s blood was from when she was sick, attorney for Ayla Reynolds’ father says

PORTLAND, Maine — There was a move forward Thursday in the wrongful death lawsuit of Ayla Reynolds.

Thursday, the missing girl’s father filed his response to the suit in court.

It’s been more than seven years since the disappearance of Ayla Reynolds in Waterville. Thursday, the father of that child filed his response to a complaint by the mother at the Cumberland County Courthouse. According to his attorney, he has never forgotten his daughter.

Ayla Reynolds was just 20-months-old when she disappeared.

She was in the custody of her father, Justin DiPietro, who said in 2011 she must have wandered away or been abducted.

The case garnered headlines around the world and became the Maine State Police’s largest criminal investigation ever. In 2012, police said they believed Ayla was dead and that DiPietro — as well as the others who were in the home the night she disappeared — were not being fully truthful with investigators about what happened.

The girl was legally declared dead by the court in 2017, and Trista Reynolds, her mother, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against DiPietro in December.

His lawyer Michael Waxman says DiPietro is still upset about what happened.

“Every single day he thinks about this,” Waxman said. “Every single day upon waking, and it’s probably the last thought he has before falling asleep. He desperately frustrated as well.”

The wrongful death lawsuit alleges DiPietro didn’t do all he could to help Ayla when she broke her arm in his custody.

He wouldn’t have allowed his daughter to continue to be in pain,” Waxman said. “He brought her as soon as he realized he needed to, the next day.”

Police reports state Ayla’s blood was found in multiple places in DiPietro’s Waterville home, including her bedroom and DiPietro’s bedroom.

His lawyer says that blood is from when Ayla was sick.

Apparently, it’s not uncommon that if a child, or a person, is vomiting repeatedly, for some blood to be in the vomit,” Waxman said. “That’s the only explanation I’m aware of.”

He says DiPietro also wants answers for what happened, but says there might not be any.

“The fact that he doesn’t have the answers she seeks, doesn’t mean that he is guilty of causing his child’s death,” Waxman said.

"somebody intentionally walked in here..." "Walked" is casual and shows planning and is almost redundant with "intentionally". Why would someone be casual about murder of children? Was there constant abuse, and this was a slight elevation of abuse (for the abuser)?

How would she know how they walked in if she was sleeping untill she was stabbed?
