A. Burke was the only one telling the truth<quoted text>
Here are some facts that cannot be denied:
1. JBR ate pineapple shortly before she died. The fruit was located in her duodenum, which is important as to TIMING.
2. JR and PR [but not Burke. Why the discrepancy?] claimed JBR was asleep when they arrived home. They took her immediately up to bed.
3. The bowl of pineapple on the table contained BR and PR's fingerprints but not JBR's
All of which begs the question: If JBR didn't eat the fruit out of the bowl, sitting at the R's kitchen table, after they had arrived home that night. then when and where did she eat it?
2 things before anybody even goes there. W's lived a few doors down from the R's. It's a sure bet they grocery shopped at the same store. It's also extremely common to bring food home from a party, courtesy of the hostess. The fact is, available evidence suggests that while JBR MIGHT have eaten the actual fruit found on the breakfast table she did NOT eat the fruit as 'set up' while sitting AT the R's breakfast table.
B. JBR walked by the table at some point in time and reached in the bowl, took a piece or two of pineapple and ate it. No one said she sat at the table to eat it. You must not have kids.
C. The Whites lived a little over a mile away not a couple of doors down.
