It’s time to check where the regular visitors [and lurkers] at this site fall in the True Crime Rocket Science hierarchy. Are you becoming a guru, or are you still learning the ropes?
The best questions in true crime are always the simplest. One of the simplest questions that emerges time and time again in try crime is why? Yet it is virtually never answered, or even addressed fully.
I won’t torture you with such a difficult question. Even after four narratives, the answer to why isn’t short, and although it’s been comprehensively addressed, it can never be fully understood. The best we can do is study a case from every conceivable angle, become experts at it, become encyclopedias of accurate case facts and compelling probabilities, and use these tools to master the criminal psychology at play.
How accurate is your encyclopedia on the Watts case?

To assist you I’ve provided a screengrab of the applicable part in the Discovery Documents [page 2126]:
Pick one of the five possibilities below, and in the comments, explain your answer:
D. None of the above.
E. The exact time Watts arrived home is unknown.
The three screengrabs below show not only the moment Watts, Nicholas Atkinson and Nate Trinastich leave 2825 Saratoga Trail together to show Coonrod the surveillance footage, but as Coonrod heads that way he turns and sees Baumhover arrive.
Baumhover’s arrival on the scene coincides with Coonrod’s exit.
These screengrabs are from the final moments of Coonrod’s bodycam footage following his arrival at the Watts home.
