As much as we consider ourselves to be UM experts we are not detectives, psychologists or a forensic scientists. There are some real sickos in the world but that doesn't automatically make them murderers.
What was the goober in the JonBenet Ramsey case?

Look at the Jessie Miskelley confessions for a classic example of cops leading someone to a confession.

Confessions are only as good as the source they come from. In the above, you had one person mentally ill and the other mentally disabled.
