Cops: Victim did not assault girl
FAIRFIELD — Police on Thursday confirmed what State's Attorney Jonathan Benedict told the media three days ago: No evidence exists to support the claim that murder victim Barry C. James had molested his accused killer's 2-year-old daughter.
"There's no evidence of any molestation occurring," police Capt. Gary MacNamara said. "We're confident that the evidence does not support any molestation." [Link.]
And then there still this part of the mystery: How does a two year old get -- or is elicited -- to say stuff like this?
According to a police report describing the mother's account, the girl told her mother about the alleged molestation while the family was visiting relatives in Rhode Island.I mean, really, WTF "comes to me in the starry nights" mean? Anything at all literal... well, it's either really, really bizarre or the parents kind of, um, well, neglected the baby, huh?
The girl "explained that she did not want to go home because of Barry," police said in the report. When her mother asked her to explain, the girl said "that Barry puts it on her belly and her nose," the report said. When her mother asked her when James does this, she replied, "He comes to me in the starry nights." [Link.]
This whole things stink, in that the key stuff still isn't known. Still believe in my first theory: Dad was a time bomb ready to go off, and did. Or was triggered? Don't trust the mama at all....
Well the Edingtons really have done fine by the child and obviously did and has done a fine job by her....
