I've seen the "riding toy" and in my book, it's a scooter because it has handlebars which to me, differentiates it from a skateboard.
Maybe I'm old school- I don't know- but whatever you want to call the thing, it's bottom heavy (even though it's a "Razor"...a "state of the art design", it's still bottom heavy) and the hallway had thick carpeting and the Razor has little wheels.
I Just don't see Max going over the railing with the scooter. I don't see that happening and that's just my take on it. It doesn't mean it didn't happen...I just don't see it happening. What more can I say about it?
Another problem I have is that there's nicks in the rail and paint chips on the carpeting below- which of course, indicate that that's precisely what did happen.
Since that evidence is there, then that HAS to be what happened, right?????
(BTW, why was the scooter on the second floor anyway, and especially if there was a problem with him riding it there?
Have you ever been curious enough to have wondered that?)
Rebecca said she found Max unresponsive, but that he regained consciousness long enough to whisper "Ocean".
If that sits well with you, then what can I say? It doesn't sit well with me, so end of story there, too.
I know who Dr. Wecht is and what he does, and why he was obtained by Zahau's family, but he said on the radio show that he didn't have all the information and he asked questions- the answers of which he needed for an informed opinion.
Re: the scalp hemorrhages (in the autopsy report, all described as on the "right", to say on the "top" offers an entirely wrong impression), he said this was possible, or that was possible. He noted a lack of this or that re: the neck injuries...but the bottom line is that- according to what he said, he would have determined the death "undetermined".
To me, that's not taking into account the ALL the circumstances of death.
Our approach is completely different. I saw that early on.
You look to the plastic bag and find it suspicious because you don't know why it was there. Well, just because YOU don't know, doesn't mean that it actually is suspicious.
Re: the tape residue, I just don't find it suspicious. In fact, her own sister had stitches the very day of the incident involving Max from apparently cleaning up the chandelier.
(When the investigator was collecting evidence from that incident, pieces of the chandelier were retrieved from in the garbage.)
The thing is, there's no evidence to suggest anything sinister about that apparent tape residue. You'll have to explain to me what's suspicious about it.
You said that the brother-in-law (he actually wasn't a brother-in-law because Zahau wasn't married to his brother) was looking at porn. You never explained to me what was suspicious about that.
You questioned blood drops that the police said were menses. Well, the police were going off the autopsy report which stated that there was "blood within the vagina and around the cervix. but no visible trauma."
You're ignoring a sound explanation, and insist on finding some other sinister explanation which doesn't exist.
Yeah, okie dokie seems to surfice.
