  • I'm curios about assisting to discover what happened to the Maxwell figure skating brother and sister .

  • Obviously with some stolen materials you could argue that this was a simple burglary and yet someone chose strangulation as the preferred method of death. You ask me you don't strangle someone unless you are out of options or you have a serious grudge, also look at what petty items were stolen. This makes it less and less likely that burglary was the sole motive.
