She's been drinking and doing coke but doesn't appear to be overly crazed intoxicated (more like 'date level'?) What strikes me most (no pun intended) is that all of her injuries are to the back of her head, attacked from behind. Surprised or running away? While there might have been some sort of struggle, do these injuries reflect the amount and extent of 'vandalism' in the house? Was the house staged? Her hands have some minor defensive injury (I think??) I still want to see the analysis of the house and some pictures, but I'm having a hard time squaring the scene with the crime. If her body is deposited somewhere else (Kelly Green) why send up red flags at her house. Wouldn't it have been smarter to have cleaned it up instead of messing it up?

Does anyone else notice that there is Peter Pane and Wendy? Did they own a dog named Nana?

I was thinking the same thing. If your going to dump the body, then why not clean up the house. So that a Missing Persons Report looks more like a done deal.... they r lots of red flags. i would like more pics of the house as well.
