I Questioned Why They Called It A Murder!!!


More.  (My initial questioning was here.)

Edit: This is kind of weird. The Dallas Morning News seems to be soft peddling this story. The paper says the Medical Examiner's report has  been made public but when they contacted the cops today, they said, "This remains an on-going investigation by the Police Department. There is no further information at this time." But back at the first part of November, Fox 4 had a story which said Lightfoot's "official cause of death was carbon monoxide poisoning caused by the fire, according to the medical examiner." (But the cops believed the fire had been intentionally set.) So the ME report now says "accidental?" Did it say that last month when the police had access to it? What has changed?

And I'll continue my rant against the "cause of death" being listed by a Medical Examiners in general. Figuring how she died is certainly in the area of expertise. Saying whether this case was an "accident" or a "homicide" is something they cannot possibly know. What about her body would show that the car was intentionally set on fire vs. accidentally catching on fire?

Edit: Now the DMN reports (in the same link above) that the dead girl had a blood alcohol concentration almost three times the legal limit. That still doesn't conclusively establish an accidental fire instead of an intentional fire. (Although that was always my guess.)

I always sit in my car after lighting it on fire. Why would anyone think differently? Are you kidding me?? Who set the dang thing on fire then??? Her?? I don't think so. Someone's getting away with murder......

The Dallas Police Department doesn't want to admit their dumbazz mistake, that's what's wrong.

You would have to be a dumbazz to think this was a murder in the first place.

Found this on a news site that's getting some credit now after the ME report.

My guess is she passed out from an exhaust leak and crashed the car. The hot exhaust system then caught underbrush on fire. Compare the level of soot in her lungs to the level of carbon monoxide in her blood to confirm. Also look for muscle tearing or defensive posturing to confirm whether she was conscious at the time of impact.

If there was a CSI Dallas, they would have solved it in 47 minutes.

My guess is drunk girl passed out while driving and ended up in the parking lot. While entering final parking place she hit the bottom of her gas tank on something and punctured it. Car running, fire started, dead girl.

Hey now, notice the similarity of the initial police suspicion of foul play with the mysterious cartpath attacker in Runaway Bay. Police conger up all kinds of suspicions (and cause innocent people grief) until smoke settles and it was just an accident. Ooopse.

I always notice accidental intoxicated persons becoming more intoxicated in Runaway Bay. Bet there are a bunch of accidental homosexual contacts after a night of drinking and having your balls washed in the mens room at the 19th hole. It's ok for your to think it didn't happen, but we all know it did.

Convicted FELONS do a lot of cover up work. A big difference between accident and intentional act.

6:47 - you're NOT the cart path bandit - I am (and the RAB CSI team will never catch me!). Think I'll whack someone on #8 next - lots of trees and easy escape route. Get Joe Duty out there for some Pulitzer shots.
