i think you are reading WAY too far into this. he set the fire to try to destroy any physical evidence he could. this was most definitely a heat of the moment incident where he snapped, probably shot her as she was walking away, then killed the children because he couldnt take them with him. he used the fire to destroy fingerprints and any physical evidence. he wiped the vehicle down to again, limit aby evidence against him should he be caught. Again, this is pretty simple i feel and you are trying to find hidden reasons when its right in front of you.

You guys need to look up the cold case they did on this guy. This is a whole lot worse then you could even imagine. Evidence is so much more damning long before the little boys were murdered.

Okay so from the beginning I thought the knife could've been clean because Darlie said when she woke up the killer was walking away. If he's all nonchalant, I thought he probably wiped the knife on something so he could leave it behind. And NOW we have a sock found with BOTH boys' blood on it???? Hello???? He wiped the knife clean, that's why there's no blood on the carpet where Darlie picked it up!

i wanna hear more from the friend. I bet amber met a guy online, took a friend with her to be safe/watch her kid. then after she was somewhat comfortable she went somewhere alone with him, and then this. she sounded somewhat inebriated and not overly scared. like possibly she willingly got into a vehicle with him. she didn't sound like the hitch hiking type to me.

Ya'll need to calm down. Seriously. Just because two women are bringing up the possible innocence of a convicted woman does not make them biased. If True Crime Garage did the exact same piece, word for word, there would be no cries of bias. Anyone who claims bias due to gender is themselves being biased through sexism. Ashley and Britt aren't being "triggered". Relax. They are, as any good investigator should, looking at both sides and weighing the evidence. Throughout most of the first episode, I was convinced Darlie is guilty too. There's a lot that looks real bad for her. But I also fully acknowledge that police frequently lock on to a suspect and refuse to let it go despite evidence to the contrary. I also fully acknowledge that they seem to have done that in this case. This episode, through the lens of any rational human, absolutely brings reasonable doubt. There's a lot of pretty reasonable explanations for things that happened. The recent conviction of Susan Smith definitely affected the trial. Jurors more convicted on character than evidence. Police ignored things like the fingerprint because it didn't fit their narrative. While I do think there is absolutely a chance that someone else did this, the big one that I can't get over is that, at least according to what has been presented in these episodes, Darlie always maintained that she woke up because her kid tugged on her arm. While chloroform is an explanation of how she could have slept through such a vicious attack, there are a few critical problems with this - first of all, she was not sexually assaulted. If the perpetrator didn't want to rape her, why not just kill her first and then kill the kids? Secondly, and more importantly, many of the wounds she had were described as consistent with defensive wounds. She never once claimed to have fought off an attacker, and if she was chloroformed there would obviously not be defensive wounds. I cannot think of a logical way to make that fit and that casts a lot of suspicion still on her. People need to learn how to approach contentious subjects diplomatically and with an open mind. Things that we believe are frequently untrue, especially when we do not have all of the information.
