    The daughter's allegations (where she told the police and media) that she suspected her mother has been out since late March, but the new information about the gun powder is certainly interesting.

    However, I think we really just don't know enough about this case to come to any conclusions at this time.

    Do heinous crimes such as robbers purposely killing or attempting to kill a baby actually happen? Absolutely. It's rare, but it does happen. When I was growing up there was a bank robbery in a nearby town where four tellers and customers were murdered. The robbers also attempted to shoot a 14-month old in the head but their pistol had run out bullets and they then fled.

    And mothers do indeed kill their babies and children for a variety of reasons, financial gain being among them.

    Most homicide detectives know that statistically family and lovers are the most likely murder suspects, and most know to not jump to conclusions. But miscarriages of justice are also all too frequent, and this case is high profile, putting more pressure on law enforcement to solve the case quickly.

      Ruined forensic evidence. They got them their shooters, and it fit their expectations, or better yet, their hopes.
