I agree Snoho and I too sometimes wonder if getting on a forum and discussing things about these people is the really right thing to do. But my reason for being here is I believed Sheila agreed to do the film with Josh because she wanted to know who killed her family and Dana so people dug in to try and help make sense of this case. Then it became more than she was comfortable with - and I can't say I blame her.
Years ago dmac made a list of questions for her to answer and from memory I don't remember there being anything on the list that was out of line (now that's just my memory and if anyone has the list I'd like to read it again). Maybe she felt like she was being interrogated, I don't know, but she never answered the questions. She certainly had every right not to answer anything she didn't want to answer but why join the forum if she wasn't there to help people who were interested in the case - after all nothing was being done as far as the case being investigated anyway.
On the old forum JK painted what I believe to be an accurate happy picture of what life in Keddie was like for kids and how the moms would go to the bar while the kids roamed the neighborhood having fun - but it offended her and she wanted everyone to know her mom didn't do that. What was wrong with saying, "well my mom never went to the bar but we still roamed all over the neighborhood having fun"? Instead she got defensive and JK wasn't even talking about her mom he was talking about his own mom and her friends.
Nobody's family is perfect so why paint hers out to be? There is nothing these people did that could justify them being murdered - NOTHING - stealing, rebellious, skipping school, parties, running away from home, doing drugs, getting pregnant, dating men, being promiscuous - it doesn't matter they didn't deserve to die. The reason we ask questions is not to condemn her family but to figure out who might possibly have felt the need to go to 28 that night. She's really spent the last 17 years trying to make everyone think that things in 28 were perfect, they were poor but had a great life, but that's a fantasy for anyone - cause nobody's family is perfect. She has spent the last 10 years pushing the Marty theory because it's just easier - or was until dmac stepped in to say Sue and Marty were having an affair (which I do not believe). Wouldn't it have just been better to say from the beginning, " Hey this was our life after my parents divorced and mom did the best she could with 5 kids and no husband"? Maybe if she could go back in time she'd have done things differently?
