Yes, I agree that the likelihood is that someone targeted the place (because of the girls), stalked it out for awhile, then picked a moment to strike after planning it for some time.

Yep, I always thought that about this case. I didn't really think the cops had anything to do with it. Just my opinion. Oh, the link to the news report doesn't work?

Augh.... *rubs temples* this is one of those cases that bugs the hell out of me. the segment was so haunting. one moment their enjoying Birthday Cake the next moment the trailer is engulfed in flames. unfortunately I think the girls are dead. that someone staked out the place and abducted them and prolly killed them later. I also don't believe the cops had anything to do with it. despite their alleged soddy investigative work. the fire just screams out as a coverup to destroy evidence.

I'm reading a book on serial killer Tommy Lynn Sells where he confessed to the crime. He claimed he was high on drugs on the night and he blacked out in intervals. But his M.O. was to target desolate trailer homes, but only one of his known victims was shot, all others were either killed by blunt force to the head or a slit throat. I think Sells was just trying to gain more notoriety because he claimed to have shot Danny, then Kathy with a shotgun, then he stabbed Kathy to make sure she was dead and then hacked up Danny's body with an axe. He went on to say he found the two girls huddled in a room together and he took them to a remote location and killed them. None of this really fits his MO other than the trailer. He always killed his victims in the location he broke in, and it was usually with a baseball bat or knife. I still think Laura and Ashley are (unfortunately) dead and have just yet to be found.

Have you seen the 48 Hours episode "Krystal's Courage?" It's about one of Sells' young survivors.

Would you recommend the book?

Never seen it, and if you like true crime books I would recommend it. Although the chapter about the Dardeen family massacre actually made me put the book down because it made me sick. I've read hundreds of true crime books (with some pretty disturbing details) and I've never had that happen.

Few thoughts on this case, which has been so unsettling and sad since my first viewing.

Something that has always severely bothered me about this case(well, among several things)was the failure to initally find Danny Freeman's body in the burned wreckage with an apparent shotgun blast to the face/torso.....While human error is an obvious alternative(local Barney Fife's aren't rare), I'm curious if they have ever nailed down that Danny did indeed die in the house fire or was possibly planted at the crime scene post-mortem? Surely had he been burned after the original fire or possibly burned with the use of accelerants, the forensics taken from tissue samples would've showed up in a different stage than that of his wife, no? I'm quite familiar with forensics and feel this is something that could've been nailed down.

I'm really curious as to when the local PD recused themselves from the case and the OKCBI took over? I tend to think that had the original discovery not warranted both bodies and a second, civilian search DID find Mr. Freeman, this would've been something of grave interest by the new investigators and given them a new avenue to investigate. Now, I don't know if PD were involved, but the investigation in a potential second party dropping the body back in the crimescene seems very plausible.

I'm wondering if the angle of Danny Freeman possibly not being killed at the same time as his wife is something that could shed some light on this baffling case?
