Also for the umpteenth time: I question the INaction of the FBI BEFORE the discovery of the body, not AFTER. During the "kidnap phase", they should not merely have hung around in the background and been "willing" to assist or take over, they SHOULD have taken over, it was their duty and responsibility in terms of the Lindbergh Law to take over. The daughter of the president of one of Lockheed Martin's subsidiaries had been kidnapped and there was a ransom note from an anti-American foreign faction threatening to behead her. If that wasn't enough to trigger the FBI's jurisdiction, then what is?For the umpteenth time:
The FBI was more than willing to either assist or take over. Once the body was found, the FBI cannot do anything at all unless INVITED
The authorities in Boulder declined! The Ramseys never requested them either and still haven't to this day
WHY was their offer declined in such a serious case? Why haven't they been asked to assist since?
If you have to really ponder that, you need a new hobby
IIRC, John (during the "kidnap" phase) DID repeatedly ask whether the FBI had been informed, but he undoubtedly lost his trust and confidence in the FBI when it became apparent that they were siding with the BPD in treating himself and Patsy as suspects. So in answer to your question as to why he's never requested the FBI's assistance, the answer is because he clearly doesn't TRUST them.
