    As I remember, the DR changed over from the Napoleonic code to the British/US system of presumption of innocence just when I arrived in 2004. There was a lot of chatter about it - about how the DR police were going to have a hard time proving guilt.

    True that they hold a lot of people pending court cases - but I believe that that happens in the US as well.

    If that is true, the suggestion of some random thief or mugger would seem to be "out the window".
    It reads more like an attempt to throw people/dogs off the trail. (classic misdirection)

    I did not know Lyndsay.
    I enjoyed her writing style and her positive attitude about things.
    She recently wrote in her blog about the "Worry Dolls"/Muñecas Quitapenas" that her mom had given to her on the occasion of her last visit to the U.K.. (https://guate-maya.com/munecas-quita...-to-find-them/)
    Under the present circumstances one might be tempted to think of that blog entry as a bit of a tell.
    We could probably all do with a little bag of worry dolls right about now.

    At any rate...
    Lyndsay will be missed by so many, including her beloved animals.
    May she rest in peace.

    I had several friends murdered between
    1998 and 2006. All of them were committed
    by someone who was very close to them. In
    some cases they were very close to me as
    well. None of them were random. Its been
    my experience, when someone close to the
    victim is accused, the accused are (more often
    than not) guilty.

    Good for you. I was trying to get caught up just to make sure no one else had stated the obvious before I posted it.

    In this case, follow the phone. The phone was in Navarette, the phone was next in Mao and then phone was in Moncion. Sometime after approx 15:30 the phone made its way back to Mao - it didn't do that by itself. So who else with a cellphone of their own in their pocket left Moncion at around 15:30 going to Mao? Stepping stone #1 which leads to the rest of the conspirators.

    If D did take public transportation to SD it was to establish an alibi as even the most clueless among us know the husband will be the first to be questioned. This would leave the son and possibly the the family acquaintance mentioned in some of the articles. If D didn't go to SD then the actual details will come out in the wash.

    As it stands now, it's looking likely that this was a family plot. If this turns out not to be the case and D is released in the next day or two we'll have to reevaluate then. For now it looks like D and the son possibly with the aid of one other are the principles in this dastardly fiasco.

    I am sure you are right sadly.
    They must have thought that by burying her where they did the body would never be found.

    I'm curious: where and when was Danilo detained?

    I knew Dani the son very well. And I just want to confirm that he was a lovely guy but breathtakingly stupid. So if he did the deed I can completely understand why he would have used items from the house to wrap her in and buried her 200m away without a second thought. He also worshiped his father and didn't like Lindsay much at all.

    intellectually I am against the death penalty - but right now I could actually stone someone (or two) to death.

    And Lindsay was not even a close friend.

    But she was SO FULL OF LOVE for this country and its people!

    She encouraged the rest of us through some pretty dark patches

    And made us love it as well....

    Bubble my azz. I'm pretty much familiar with the typical dominican psyche. If I have spoken out of turn, you will receive an apology from me.
