Well there are more than 10 hash marks, there are 5-10 in the front room and 10 in the back. Personally I think he was just counting off up to 5 multiple times until his house got burnt down.
The trainers are hanging up because it ties the victims to the article which shows the victims were joggers, so it's definitely Merle's house. The reason they didn't burn? Well it's probably a bit of artistic licence from the designer rather than anything like there being a copycat killer.
See, the personally part is where I start to cringe.
I can make up stories about how they are the opposite.
Cause it's my story I will stick to it.
You aren't being objective about it, and that's my main point.
In your head it's already case close.
I ask about unknown variables and you can only present an idea you came up with.
The shoe's should be in evidence... the house burned and he went to the camp. Then he was caught, right?
When serial killers are locked up they are never mixed with general population.
I think Merle was framed or just not smart enough to verbalize his defense.
But admitting to being obsessed with a number is hardly enough to prosecute for murder let alone multiple counts.
I guess I should just stay out of here...
I try to present my side and it's just smacked down.
Not like I am saying some alien is the killer or something....
