I find it interesting that this description by Burke is almost identical to John Mark Karr's description of what took place but with Karr being the one weilding the blow to her head. Even to the point of Burke saying JB had been carried "quietly" downstairs by "someone".
It sounds as though Burke might have actually seen certain aspects of the crime, depending on whose description is factual. And possibly can be why LE keeps trying to question Burke in more detail.
Burke might have seen something, but I'm pretty sure John Mark Karr didn't.

The way Burke showed JonBenet being hit on the head is the obvious way. If you asked me to pretend to hit someone on the head, that's the way I'd do it. Now if JonBenet was struck with an upper-cut and Burke had pretended to do that, I'd find it more interesting. But I'd still try to eliminate other ways he could have gotten that information--family, attorneys, news media. Ditto JonBenet being carried downstairs.

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?
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.

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?
