You mean why did Burke assume she was carried downstairs instead of walking down under her own steam and getting killed there? That's kind of interesting. Once again, though, I think you'd need to examine the state of knowledge on Jan. 8.Of course, you're right, but the part about how he referred to JonBenet being carried downstairs is definitely interesting and is it just coincidental?

Burke has almost every answer to this case and I doubt he will ever disclose it
Burke has claimed that she was not asleep coming into the house and she walked in on her own. That discrepancy has never been resolved and nobody knows the answer to that discrepancy other than Burke and John
IF she walked in on her own, it is unlikely that she went to sleep and then came back down, carried or not. If she was awake and walking in the house, she never went to sleep once inside and either stayed downstairs or went upstairs and came right back down on her own and was never carried at all
I don't make much of Burke or anyone else demonstrating a blow to the head. There are only a limited number of ways that could happen and many people would get lucky demonstrating it close to what may have happened. As mentioned already, if it were something way more specific than a blow to the head and he was able to demonstrate that with some precision, I would make much more of it
Burke and John are the only ones who could answer these questions with truth and since they never have been willing to assist in this case, there is no reason at this time to believe that they will ever change their minds.

Well stated Capricorn. Burke is the key to ending the lies for once and for all.

Burke knows little to nothing of value save for things like an explanation of why his fingerprints were on the bowl and if JonBenet was carried upstairs asleep and when he was awakened etc. He was probably questioned on those things already and then cleared by Hunter.
It would be interesting to know why contact with him was attempted recently though.

I'm with you here. At least, I don't see any evidence that Burke was necessarily a witness to, let alone a participant in, the night's main events.
I don't get the emphasis placed by a couple of posters on JonBenet's state of wakefulness. My daughter often would be asleep in the car, wake up as she was carried in, fall asleep on her bed and then wake up and announce she was hungry. Once she ate, she could sleep through anything. Burke's story is at odds with his father's about whether or not she walked up the stairs? That event wasn't as portentous then as it seems now. Why would he be paying attention?
