The obvious flaws in the investigation and prosecution of death row inmate Darlie Routier.

Updated on July 31, 2020

I get that the investigation brought no evidence of an intruder, but it brought mounds of evidence that more than implicated another person who was in that home

Darlie was asleep right up until the time she saw that intruder walking away from her.  How could she have given Darin an alibi to say he had been upstairs during the attack?

There is abosolutely no doubt that the prosecution in this case deliberately and intentionally with held evidence that they knew would have changed the outcome of the trial.

It isn't just my belief that the prosecution with held evidence that would have changed the verdict in Darlie's case, there is documented evidence to prove they

On August 27th, 1996 Greg Davis and Toby Shook met with Darin at a hearing and during that hearing they had exposed many of Darin's lies. They were able to prove that Darin didnot have an alibi in Darlie. They were able to prove Darin not only had motvie, but he had opportunity to lose or plant that sock when he left that house right after officer Waddell arrived. They exposed the many lies Darin told as to why he never helped the two surviving victims. They were able to get Darin to admit when Darlie opened that front door to scream out Darin was not there. I was convinced without any doubt that Greg Davis believed Darin was guilty of that crime, yet he continued his prosecution against Darlie?

There were serious mistakes in the transcribed copy of the 911 call that definitely helped the prosecution with their conviction.

Even though I can not prove without a doubt that those mistakes were intentionally made to help the prosecutions case, I will say it appeared to me that the prosecution was determined to get that conviction on Darlie no matter what the cost.

I want to expose some of those errors that just appeared to be intentional in order to mislead the jury.

Darin himself admitted when officer Waddell first entered the house he was doing CPR on Devon. In August Darin told the prosecution that he never stopped doing cpr on Devon from the time he first appeared on the scene to the time officer Waddell was in the home? The prosecution knew without any doubt Darin was not telling the truth and 911 call proved this. This information was never exposed to the jury.


During the earlier part of the investigation the dog came into question. Several witnesses were asked about the dogs behavior. It was obvious at that point they realized that the dog did not bark until 3 minutes and 30 seconds into the 911 call proving that someone in that house had gone upstairs just before the officer entered the home.

Even though Darin had denied meeting the officer outside of his home between 2:33am and 2:34am we know by at least two witnesses, Darin did in fact run out the front door and meet officer Waddell. They spoke for a second and Darin immediately turned around and ran back into the house.

We know for a fact at this point Darin knew Devon was already gone and to further confirm this we have the statement from the first responding officer saying when he first saw Devon it was obvious to him he was already gone. Darin claimed he did cpr on Devon at least 4 minutes before the officer ever entered the house, so there was no doubt he knew for a fact Devon was gone.

Darin stood up and told the officer there was nothing more he could do for Devon and this happened seconds after Darin and the officer came into the house. This was the same statement Darin made to Darlie within seconds of being with Devon.

Officer Waddell told Greg Davis about Darin leaving that home right after he arrived. He knew for a fact when certain comments were added to the 911 call putting Darin in the home it was not Darin who was speaking. The prosecution knew Darin had exited that house through the back sliding doors. This was deliberately misleading the jury to believing Darin was present the entire time after officer Waddell first entered the house.

The reason I was able to uncover this conspiracy was because Officer Waddell did an interview. In that interview he made a strange comment that caused me to start digging deeper. I eventually contacted officer Waddell because I needed answers.

I brought up that interview to him and asked if I could ask him some questions about certain comments he made in that interview. I knew officer Waddell had been put through the ringer by Darin and Darlie's family, painting him as a liar so I didn't expect him to be open or honest with me. I was surprised when he agreed to talk to me. He was not this lying monster everyone had painted him out to be. I found him to be open and honest with me. After what the Routier's and Darlie's family put him through I was surprised even shocked that he was willing to talk to me.

I had a nagging feeling about a comment he made during his interview. He said when him and Darin first entered the house Darin ran right over to Devon. (Waddell had no idea Darin had claimed to have done cpr on Devon 4 minutes before he arrived, so at that time he was under the belief Darin was actually trying to help his family) While Waddell was tending to Darlie and looking towards the kitchen where she said the intruder ran, he glanced back to where Darin and the boys were but Darin was gone. Within a minute Darin had returned to the house and went back to stand beside Devon. I asked him why he never disclosed this to the jury and he told me he told Greg Davis about this and he assumed Davis had told the jury about Darin. I assured him the prosecution did not disclose this information to the jury. The jury never knew Darin had the opportunity to lose or plant that sock in the alley.

I told him that the transcribed copy of the 911 call was corrupt and not accurate in the least and he agreed. At the time Darin had exited the house the transcriber put Darin in that house as making certain comments. I knew for a fact it was not Darin who made those comments because he was absent from the house. These mistakes were briefly brought up in court but the details surrounding Darin exiting the house were never exposed to the jury. These are the comments I am referring too.

It is important that people realize Darin was not there with Darlie before she dialed 911. He is not heard on the 911 call until Darlie returns to the hall already speaking to 911. She is directing Darin to where the boys are and you can hear Darin in the background responding to Darlie. It is at this time Darin says he began cpr on Devon and he continued to do cpr right up until officer Waddell entered the house but we know for a fact by Darin's own admissions and this 911 call he not telling the truth. Darin announced Devon dead to Darlie within the first 40 seconds of this 911 call and Darlie's is clearly heard reacting to what Darin has just told her.

00:15:03 Darlie Routier ...hurry... (unintelligible)...

This is when Darin ran back upstairs just before the officer entered the house. We know this because the dog is not heard barking until he opens the door to where he locked the dog up earlier.

03:30:27 SOUND ...(dog barking)...


Within 15 seconds Darin ran down those stairs and he ran right out that front door. He spoke to the officer for a couple of seconds and just as the officer and other witness stated Darin immediately ran back into the house right over to Devon to start that second cpr on him.

Darin managed to convince Darlie that he was the one who said get a rag, Darlie told the courts it was Darin who made this comment because she recogised his voice? The first thought that came to me was her comment that the intruder was not Darin because she would have recognised him? Even though her description of the intruder fit her husband perfectly she still refused to believe Darin was that intruder.

Darin was with Devon from the second him and officer Waddell entered the house. The second they turned their backs to focus on the intruder Darin fled the house. He did not make this comment as he had claimed.

03:45:19 Police Officer ...look for a rag...


Even though the prosecution claimed it was Darin who made this comment about the phone it was not Darin, it was another operator at the 911 station and a similar comment was made earlier in the 911 call. Darin admitted to Davis in August he was absent from the house until just before the second responding officer came down the hall.

Darin claims when he left the house at this time he had gone over to Karen Neals house to get help, but we can clearly see by the 911 call Karen did not enter that house until 2:40am, (at least six minutes later). We also know Darin left that house through the back sliding doors going the opposite direction of Karen Neals house?

I wondered why they did not check the fresh rip on Darin's jeans to see if they had wood chips from the fence in the back yard. I asked officer Waddell if he believed Darin planted the sock. He said they did believe he planted the sock but they had no way of proving it? Fibers on the jeans may have given them all the proof they needed but his jeans were never tested?

03:59:29 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible) phone is right there..

On August 27th, 1996 the prosecution knew that Darin had exited the house at least one minute before the police arrived at the Routier home but they disclosed t

At 2:32am Darlie is heard on the 911 call screaming out a name. After listening to the 911 call I realized that Darlie was not screaming out the name Karen as the transcribed copy was claiming, she was screaming Darin. In August Greg Davis asked Darin if he had heard Darlie open the front door and scream out for Karen? Darin had not yet heard the 911 call so he had no idea this was clearly heard on the call and he told Greg Davis he never heard Darlie scream out because he was not there. Darin had just told Greg Davis that he was there with Devon only a few feet away doing cpr on him for the entire time until officer Waddell entered the house? Again the jury was never shown or told of this evidence?

02:32:15 Darlie Routier ...Karen ...(unintelligible).

There was no doubt Darin had never been separated from Darlie from the time the crime happened right up to the time they wrote their police report. There was no doubt by the comments Darlie was making, Darin had been coaching her on what to say and what not to say. I believe the only true memories that were ever exposed came from Darlie before Darin had gotten to her.

Tom Bevels was the blood spatter expert that testified for the prosecution and since her trial it has been proven his so called forensic theories were nothing b

Every chance Greg Davis got he would twist Darlie's words around to made Tom Bevels junk science make a liar out of Darlie. When Darlie said she walked or followed the intruder, Davis would tell the jury she said said ran or chased. It was nothing short of criminal what the prosecution did to Darlie in order to get that conviction.

I have no doubt that Greg Davis was fully aware of the conflict between Detective Jimmy Patterson and Darin Routier.

Are we supposed to believe that Greg Davis and Toby Shook had no idea that Darin was involved with Detective Jimmy Patterson's son?

I have no doubt Darlie believe Detective Jimmy Patterson was on their side to find the truth. I do not believe she learned the truth about Detective Jimmy Patterson until after he testified against her at trial.

I believe Darin knew all along Darlie was about to be arrested on June 18th and that is why he came prepared with his bible in hand to flash the reporters.

Here is a father who was cheating on his wife, planning a home robbery, snorting cocaine in the same room that his 8 month old child slept and he just happens to show up at the police with a bible in hand? Give me a break. Darin was not investigated 23 years and that is why this case is still unsolved today.

I wanted to first expose the pure negligence of this operator on phone.

IS THIS WOMAN FOR REAL? WHY IS SHE ASKING AGAIN WHAT IS GOING ON? WHY ISN'T SHE FOCUSING ON THE VICTIMS OR TRYING TO HELP DARLIE ASSIST HER DYING CHILDREN? IT IS NOT HER JOB TO TRY AND SOLVE THIS CRIME OVER THE PHONE, IT IS HER JOB TO HELP THE VICTIMS GET ASSISTANCE. DARLIE IS CLEARLY FRUSTRATED BY THIS WOMAN AND HER CASUAL ATTITUDE REGARDING HER DYING BOYS.


00:32:13 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible) ...oh my God...
00:33:49 RADIO ...(tone - signal broadcast)...

00:43:15 Darlie Routier ...I don't even know (unintelligible)...

ON TOP OF EVERYTHING DARIN IS RIGHT THERE HOUNDING DARLIE ABOUT THE INTRUDER INSTEAD OF FOCUSING ON HELPING HIS CHILDREN? HE CONTINUES TO DO THIS THROUGHOUT THE 911 CALL.

SERIOUSLY? MAY BE A POSSIBLE STABBING? DARLIE MADE IT PERFECTLY CLEAR HER BOYS WERE STABBED AND THEY ARE DEAD AND DYING YET THIS WOMAN CONTINUES TO MAKE LIGHT OF THE WHOLE SITUATION?


00:55:06 Darlie Routier ...oh my God ...what do we do...
00:57:17 911 Operator #1 ...time out 2:32...

01:03:05 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...
01:04:07 911 Operator #1 ...need units going towards 5801 Eagle Drive ...5801 Eagle Drive


THROUGHOUT THIS ENTIRE CALL THIS WOMAN HAS INVOLVED HERSELF ONLY WITH WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THE OFFICERS. ONCE SHE HAS GIVEN THE ADDRESS HER FOCUS SHOULD HAVE IMMEDIATELY TURNED TO THE VICTIMS. SHE NEVER ONCE ASKS ABOUT THE BOYS OR THEIR CONDITION? HER FOCUS IS ONLY ON THE CRIME SCENE AND GATHERING INFORMATION ABOUT THE CRIME? I CAN NOT BEGIN TO IMAGINE WHAT DARLIE MUST BE FEELING AND THINKING AT THIS POINT AND SHE IS STILL HAVING TO BATTLE WITH DARIN REGARDING THE INTRUDER WHICH IS NOT IMPORTANT AT THIS STAGE?


01:04:07 Darlie Routier ...oh my God ...my baby's dead...
01:07:08 Darlie Routier ...Damon ...hold on honey...
01:08:11 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
01:08:22 911 Operator #1 ...hysterical female on the phone...

WHY IS THIS WOMAN CONTINUING TO HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH THE OFFICERS? IF SHE KNOWS THERE ARE CHILDREN DYING AND THE MOTHER IS HYSTERICAL WHY ISN'T SHE CONCERNING HERSELF WITH THE STABBED VICTIMS RATHER THAN THE OFFICERS? OVER A MINUTE INTO THE CALL AND SHE STILL HAS NOT BROUGHT UP OR ASKED ABOUT THE CONDITION OF THE BOYS?


01:10:03 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible)...
01:10:10 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
01:10:26 911 Operator #1 ...says her child has been stabbed


THIS WOMAN CLEARLY KNOWS THAT THERE ARE CHILDREN IN THAT HOME WHO HAVE BEEN STABBED AND ARE BLEEDING OUT YET SHE STILL DOES NOT INSTRUCT DARLIE ON HOW TO HELP HER BOYS AND AS YOU CAN SEE DARIN IS STILL FOCUSED ON THE INTRUDER HARASSING DARLIE ABOUT THE DETAILS OF THIS SO CALLED INTRUDER HE CLAIMS HE NEVER SAW? HE IS DESPERATE TO MAKE SURE THAT DARLIE AND THIS WOMAN BELIEVE THERE WAS AN INTRUDER IN THAT HOUSE. NEITHER THE OPERATOR OR DARIN HAVE OFFERED DARLIE ANY ASSISTANCE ON HOW TO HELP HER CHILDREN? WHY ARE THEY CONCERNED WITH THE CRIME AND NOT THE VICTIMS?


01:11:28 Darlie Routier ...I saw them Darin...
01:12:21 Darin Routier ...oh my God ...(unintelligible) ...came in here...

THIS COMMENT FROM DARIN SAYS ALL WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WHERE HIS MIND SET WAS. HE WAS CLEARLY NOT AT ALL INTERESTED IN HELPING THE VICTIMS, HIS ONLY CONCERN IS CONVINCING DARLIE AND THIS OPERATOR A STRANGER HAD COMMITTED THE CRIME. IT IS SO OBVIOUS AT THIS POINT WHAT DARIN IS TRYING TO DO HERE.


01:14:10 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am ...I need you to calm down and talk to me...

EVERY TIME I READ OR HEAR THE COMMENTS FROM THIS OPERATOR I FEEL MY BLOOD BOIL. HER WE HAVE A MOTHER WITH TWO CHILDREN STABBED AND DYING AND SHE IS ASKING DARLIE TO CALM DOWN AND TALK TO HER? WHAT ELSE DOES DARLIE NEED TO SAY TO THIS WOMAN IN ORDER TO GET HER TO FOCUS ON HELPING HER CHILDREN? IT IS NOT HER JOB TO SOLVE THIS CRIME OR GATHER INFORMATION ABOUT THE CRIME OR THE INTRUDER, IT IS HER JOB TO HELP THE VICTIMS STAY ALIVE UNTIL POLICE AND MEDICS ARRIVE ON THE SCENE. SHE STILL HAS NOT ASKED ABOUT THE CONDITION OF THE BOYS OR THEIR INJURIES? WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS WOMAN AND WHY WASN'T SHE CRIMALLY CHARGED FOR NEGLIGENT?


01:14:24 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...
01:16:25 Darlie Routier ...ok...
01:16:26 SOUND ...(unintelligible)...

01:18:26 Darlie Routier ...didn't you get my address...
01:20:19 911 Operator #1 ...5801 Eagle...

THE OFFICERS THAT HAVE BEEN DISPATCHED OUT TO THE SCENE ARE MORE THAN CAPABLE OF RELAYING INFORMATION ABOUT THE ADDRESS BETWEEN THEMSELVES BUT THIS WOMAN HAS FOCUSED ON THE OFFICERS AND THE CRIME SCENE, SHE HAS NOT CONCERNED HERSELF AT ALL WITH THE VICTIMS OR THEIR CONDITION?


01:22:00 Darlie Routier ...yes ...we need help...
01:22:03 RADIO ...(unintelligible) will be enroute code...
01:24:20 Darlie Routier ...Darin ...I don't know who it was...

EVEN THOUGH DARIN IS NOT HEARD ON THE 911 CALL WE KNOW HE IS STILL HARASSING DARLIE ABOUT THIS INTRUDER? HE CLAIMS HE WAS THERE DOING CPR ON DEVON SO HOW IS HE ABLE TO CARRY ON A CONVERSATION REGARDING THE INTRUDER THE ENTIRE TIME? HE HAS ALREADY ANNOUCED DEVON DEAD TO DARLIE YET HE DOES NOT GET UP AND GO ANYWHERE NEAR DAMON. DARIN ADMITS THAT HIMSELF?


01:24:23 911 Operator #1 ...2:33 code...
01:26:15 Darlie Routier ...we got to find out who it was...
01:27:12 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am...
01:28:04 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am listen ...listen to me...

AT THIS POINT WE SHOULD EXPECT TO HEAR INSTRUCTIONS FROM THIS WOMAN TO DARLIE ON HOW TO HELP HER BOYS? SHE HAS NOT ASKED ABOUT DARLIE'S INJURIES OR THE BOYS INJURIES?


01:29:27 Darlie Routier ...yes ...yes ...(unintelligible)...
01:30:23 RADIO ...(unintelligible) I'm clear ...do you need anything...
01:32:08 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...

01:34:00 911 Operator #1 ...(unintelligible)...
01:34:22 911 Operator #1 ...do you take the radio Clint...
01:35:23 911 Operator #2 ...yes...

THIS WOMAN GETS DARLIE'S ATTENTION TELLING HER TO LISTEN TO HER AND SHE IMMEDIATELY TURNS HER FOCUS RIGHT BACK TO THE OFFICERS WITHOUT A CARE OR CONCERN FOR ANY OF THE VICTIMS.

01:36:12 Darlie Routier ...oh my God...
01:36:25 911 Operator #1 ...I...ma'am...
01:38:03 Darlie Routier ...yes...
01:38:17 911 Operator #1 ...I need you to ...

01:39:28 911 Operator #1 ...I need you to talk to me...
01:41:21 Darlie Routier ...what ...what ...what...

SHOULDN'T IT BE THE OPERATOR DOING THE TALKING AT THIS POINT? WHAT MORE DOES THIS WOMAN NEED TO KNOW? DARLIE HAS TOLD HER AN INTRUDER CAME IN AND STABBED BOTH HER AND HER CHILDREN AND SHE IS AGAIN ASKING DARLIE QUESTIONS REGARDING THE CRIME? WHY ISN'T SHE INSTRUCTING DARLIE TO GO OVER TO HER CHILDREN AND DESCRIBE THEIR INJURIES SO SHE CAN ASSIST HER OBVIOUS DYING CHILDREN? IT JUST MAKES ME FURIOUS EVERY TIME I LISTEN TO THIS CALL.

01:49:17 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am ...I can't understand you...

WHAT ELSE DOES THIS WOMAN NEED TO UNDERSTAND? SHE HAS ACKNOWLEGED THAT THE CHILDREN HAVE BEEN STABBED AND THEY ARE DEAD AND DYING AND SHE STILL HAS NOT INSTRUCTED DARLIE ON HOW TO HELP HER DEAD AND DYING SON? WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS WOMAN? WHY WASN'T SHE CRIMINALLY CHARGED AFTER THIS 911 CALL?


01:50:21 Darlie Routier ...yes...
01:51:18 911 Operator #1 ...you're going to have to slow down ...calm down ...and talk to me...
01:52:19 Darlie Routier ...I'm talking to my babies ...they're dying...
01:55:03 911 Operator #1 ...what is going on...


WHAT MORE DOES DARLIE NEED TO SAY TO THIS WOMAN TO GET HER TO FOCUS ON HELPING HER CHILDREN? WHAT DOES SHE MEAN WHAT IS GOING ON? THERE IS ONE CHILD DEAD, ANOTHER DYING AND BLEEDING OUT AND THIS WOMAN IS HOUNDING DARLIE ABOUT THE CRIME?


01:56:29 Darlie Routier ...somebody came in while I was sleeping ...me and my little boys were sleeping downstairs...
02:02:00 RADIO ...(unintelligible) I'll be clear...

02:14:23 911 Operator #1 ...ok ...stay on the phone with me...

THIS WOMAN ACTUALLY PUT DARLIE ON HOLD AND HAS INSTRUCTED HER TO STAY ON THE PHONE WITH HER AND WE ARE OVER 2 MINUTES INTO THIS 911 CALL AND SHE STILL HAS NOT SAID A SINGLE WORD ABOUT ANY OF THE VICTIMS? SHE HAS NOT OFFERED ONE BIT OF HELP TO ANY OF THEM?


02:16:11 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
02:17:06 Darlie Routier ...oh my God...

2:202:01 911 Operator #1 ...(unintelligible) who was on (unintelligible)...

02:22:26 911 Operator #2 ...it was (unintelligible) the white phone...

IT IS HEARTBREAKING TO LISTEN TO THIS WOMAN CARRY ON WITH OTHER PEOPLE AT THE STATION AS THOUGH THERE WERE NO VICTIMS ON THE PHONE WHO WERE DYING AND BLEEDING OUT? HER FOCUS SHOULD HAVE BEEN ON DARLIE AND HER CHILDREN, BUT SHE WAS CLEARLY MORE CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT WAS GOING ON WITH THE OFFICERS, MAINLY CLINT?



02:23:08 Darlie Routier ...hold on...
02:25:26 911 Operator #2 ...they were wondering when we need to dispatch ...so I sent a double team...
02:25:28 Darlie Routier ...oh my God ...oh my God...

02:31:14 911 Operator #1 ...who's there with you...


SERIOUSLY? WHY WOULD THAT MATTER AT THIS POINT? DARLIE IS IN DESPERATE NEED OF HELP FOR HERSELF AND HER CHILDREN AND AGAIN THIS WOMAN IS ONLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE CRIME AND THE CRIME SCENE? SHE IS TRYING TO SOLVE THIS CRIME OVER THE PHONE RATHER THAN TRYING TO SAVE THE VICTIMS? THIS IS BEYOND CRIMINAL IN MY OPINION


02:32:15 Darlie Routier ...Karen ...(unintelligible)...
02:33:15 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am...
02:34:06 Darlie Routier ...what...
02:38:11 911 Operator #1 ...is there anybody in the house ...besides you and your children...

02:43:24 911 Operator #1 ...ok ...ok ...how many little boys ...is it two boys...

THIS WOMAN IS ACTUALLY ASKING DARLIE ABOUT THE MEMBERS OF HER FAMILY AND THEIR NAMES AND AGES? I JUST FEEL SICK WHEN I LISTEN TO THIS OPERATOR AND HER CAREFREE ATTITUDE WHILE ON THE PHONE WITH A VICTIM WHO HAS TOLD HER SHE HAS BEEN STABBED.


02:46:06 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...

THIS IS ALMOST 4 MINUTES INTO THIS 911 CALL ANDTHIS WOMAN HAS COMPLETELY FOCUSED ON WHAT THE OFFICERS ARE DOING RATHER THAN HELPING THE VICTIMS. WHY IS SHE ASKING DARLIE THE AGE OF THE BOYS AND HER HUSBANDS NAME? WHY HASN'T SHE OFFERED DARLIE ANY ASSISTANCE ON HOW TO GET HER SON BREATHING AGAIN? WHY HASN'T SHE INSTRUCTED DARLIE ON HOW TO PUT PRESSURE ON HER SON'S WOUNDS?

WHY WOULD THIS OPERATOR BE CONCERNED IF ANYONE WAS OUTSIDE? IT WAS HER JOB TO ASSIST THE VICTIMS NOT TRY AND SOLVE THE CRIME. HAD SHE INSTRUCTED DARLIE ON HOW TO HELP HER BOYS MAYBE DAMON WOULN'T HAVE BLED OUT.


04:17:06 Darlie Routier ...I don't know ...I was sleeping...

I REMEMBER THE HATERS IN THE GROUPS ACCUSING DARLIE OF NOT OPENING THE DOORS TO THE OFFICERS BUT THEY DID NOT BOTHER TO LEARN THE TRUTH OR FACTS BEHIND THESE STATEMENTS. THE FRONT DOOR WAS UNLOCKED AND THE OFFICER WAS ALREADY IN THE HOUSE. THIS OPERATOR WAS SO OUT OF IT SHE DID NOT EVEN REALIZE THE FIRST OFFICER ENTERED THE HOUSE OVER A MINUTE EARLIER?


05:04:21 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible) his knife was lying over there and I already picked it up...

Total length of tape is 5:44:28

THE PURE NEGLIGENCE DID NOT STOP HERE. OFFICER WALLING CAME IN AND THEY TOOK THERE SWEET OLD TIME CHECKING OUT THE HOUSE BEFORE ALLOWING THE MEDICS TO COME IN AND WHEN OFFICER WALLING FINALLY WENT OUT TO NOTIFY THE MEDICS THAT THE HOUSE WAS CLEAR HE WALKED OUT THERE. HE ACTUALLY TOOK THE TIME TO WALK OVER TO THE DRIVERS SIDE OF THE MEDIC VAN AND TELL HIM TO ORDER ANOTHER VAN.

THE MEDICS GOT OUT OF THE VAN WALKED AROUND TO THE OTHER SIDE GATHERED WHAT EVER EQUIPMENT THEY NEEDED AND CASUALLY WALKED BACK TO THE HOUSE? WHEN THEY TESTIFIED TO THIS IT WAS AS THOUGH THEY HAD DONE NOTHING WRONG?

I would like to point out how this 911 call had exposed all of Darin's lies even before he began to give his many different versions of the story.

The first thing I would like to point out is Darin's claims that he was there with Darlie before she dialed 911. He claimed Darlie was at the foot of the stairs and he pushed past her to get to his son Devon because he saw the glass table tipped over on top of him.

Right from the get go there was serious problems with Darin's story. There was no blood puddle putting Darlie at the foot of the stairs as Darin had claimed. The glass table was not tipped over on top of his son as he had claimed and the 911 call proves witihout any doubt Darin did not appear in that hallway until after Darlie already dialed 911 and returned to the hallway. She is heard telling Darin to hurry. She is clearly speaking to him and he is heard in the background responding to her. She would not be telling Darin to hurry if he was already there doing cpr on Devon as he claimed. The 911 call clearly destroys his alibi in Darlie proving it was possible for Darin to have been that intruder Darlie saw. Darin had plenty of time to change his jeans in that utility room and make it to the stairs before Darlie went back to the hall after dialing 911. Detective Patterson also had Darlie's description of the intruder which happen to fit Darlie's husband perfectly right down to the brown mullet he wore.

00:00:00 911 Operator #1 ...Rowlett 911...what is your emergency..
00:01:19 Darlie Routier ...somebody came here...they broke in...
00:03:27 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am...
00:05:11 Darlie Routier ...they just stabbed me and my children...
00:07:16 911 Operator #1 ...what...
00:08:05 Darlie Routier ...they just stabbed me and my kids...my little boys...
00:09:24 911 Operator #1 ...who...who did...
00:11:12 Darlie Routier ...my little boy is dying...
00:11:25 RADIO ...(unintelligible) clear...
00:13:07 911 #1 ...hang on ...hang on... hang on
00:15:03 Darlie Routier ...hurry... (unintelligible)..

As you can see Darin is not there when she first dials 911 and she is heard clear as day speaking to Darin 15 seconds into the 911 call instructing him to hurry. You can hear Darin in the background talking back to Darlie. Even though it is not in the transcribed copy it is clearly heard on the audio copy of the call.

I wanted to move on to the first comments Darin is heard making after he arrives on the scene.

00:29:13 Darlie Routier ...oh my God ...my babies are dying...
00:30:12 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible

Darin told Greg Davis in August he was not aware that Damon had any injuries but it is clear by this call Darin is within hearing distance to hear Darlie tell this woman her boys are dying.

00:34:01 Background Voice ...(unintelligible)...
00:35:20 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible) thought he was dead ...oh my God...
00:39:08 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
00:39:29 Darlie Routier ...I don't even know (unintelligible)...
00:40:22 911 Operator #1 ...attention 901 unknown medical emergency 5801...
00:42:23 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
00:43:15 Darlie Routier ...I don't even know (unintelligible)..

Darin has just gone over to his dead son Devon and instead of focusing his attention on trying to revive him or give cpr he immediately begins to harp at Darlie about this intruder who he has always claimed he never saw? No mention of his son or his injuries, no mention of Damon and his condition even though he is clearly laying in a puddle of his own blood? No mention to Darlie of her obvious injuries as she is bleeding from several different injuries to her body. His concern is making sure this 911 operator believes there was an intruder in the house.

00:40:10 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
00:51:15 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible) are they still laying there (unintelligible)...

Darlie does not make this comment, this is a typo on the transcribed copy. Darin has just told Darlie Devon is dead and she is screaming out to him Devon is dead. This part of the 911 call was very misleading to the jury.

00:55:06 Darlie Routier ...oh my God ...what do we do...
00:57:17 911 Operator #1 ...time out 2:32.

Notice here how Darlie is asking what she can do to help her children and she does not get a response from Darin or the operator. It is as if there were no dying victims in the house at all.

01:08:11 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
01:08:22 911 Operator #1 ...hysterical female on the phone...

01:10:10 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
01:10:26 911 Operator #1 ...says her child has been stabbed
01:11:28 Darlie Routier ...I saw them Darin...
01:12:21 Darin Routier ...oh my God ...(unintelligible) ...came in here...

Notice how Darin's complete focus is on that intruder and he continues to mention this intruder making sure Darlie and the operator are convinced that an intruder had done this to his family. Why hasn't Darin mentioned anything about Darlie or the boys?

01:22:00 Darlie Routier ...yes ...we need help...
01:22:03 RADIO ...(unintelligible) will be enroute code...
01:24:20 Darlie Routier ...Darin ...I don't know who it was...
01:24:23 911 Operator #1 ...2:33 code...
01:26:15 Darlie Routier ...we got to find out who it was..

It is so obvious here that Darlie is focused on getting help for her children and the only concern Darin has is the intruder? Within the first minute there is no mention of his sons, their condition, asking for help for any of them. His only concern is that intruder and convincing everyone a stranger did this to his family.

01:32:08 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
01:32:20 Darlie Routier ...oh my God...

02:16:11 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
02:17:06 Darlie Routier ...oh my God...
02:17:29 911 Operator #1 ...what happened (unintelligible) dispatch 901...
02:20:15 Darlie Routier ...hold on honey ...hold on...
02:22:01 911 Operator #1 ...(unintelligible) who was on (unintelligible)...
02:22:26 911 Operator #2 ...it was (unintelligible) the white phone...
02:23:08 Darlie Routier ...hold on...

Both Darlie and Darin admitted that Darin had instructed Darlie not to touch or turn Damon over. Little did Darlie know Darin knew the entire time that Damon was bleeding out and he was in desperate need of pressure on his wounds. Darin bragged how he had seven years of cpr training and instead of rushing over to assist his dying son he instructed Darlie not to help him and if she did she would be causing more harm than good? Darlie knew Darin has cpr training and she trusted Darin when he gave her instructions not to touch her son. Darlie was accused of standing by watching her son die when that was not the case at all.

02:29:20 SOUND ...(unintelligible)...
02:30:01 Darlie Routier ...oh my God...
02:30:20 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am...
02:31:06 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...
02:31:14 911 Operator #1 ...who's there with you...
02:32:15 Darlie Routier ...Karen ...(unintelligible)...
02:33:15 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am...
02:34:06 Darlie Routier ...what...
02:38:11 911 Operator #1 ...is there anybody in the house ...besides you and your children...
02:38:11 Darlie Routier ...no ...my husband he just ran downstairs ...he's helping me ...but they're dying ...oh my God ...they're dead...

Darin told Greg Davis in August of 1996 that he never once left Damon's side until the first responding officer arrived. I listened to that 911 call over and over again and I knew Darlie did not call out Karen's name, she called out for Darin. Darin had obviously left that house at this point. Darin admitted to Greg Davis in August that he did not hear Darlie scream out the front door because he was not there at the time. Still nobody ever looked at Darin or bothered to check out his stories? How was this possible?

02:46:06 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...

Darin suddenly appears on the scene again.

02:50:15 Darlie Routier ...oh my God ...who would do this...
02:53:13 911 Operator #1 ...(unintelligible) listen to me ...calm down ...(unintelligible)...
02:53:21 Darlie Routier ...I feel really bad ...I think I'm dying...

Darlie is clearly speaking to Darin, asking him who would do this. She then makes the comment that she thinks she is dying yet Darin had always claimed he did not know or see any of her injuries until after he came back from Karen Neals over 6 minutes later?

03:13:09 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...

03:18:20 Darin Routier ...what.

If you listen to the 911 call it is clear that Darlie made this comment. She is speaking to Darin who is obviously further away from her than a few feet with Devon.

03:30:27 SOUND ...(dog barking)...

We hear nothing from Darin for several seconds, there is no doubt he has gone upstairs for what ever reason and opened that door to where he had locked that dog up earlier. He immediately runs down the stairs and he runs right out the front door just as he had described in his police statement on June 8th. The problem is he claims that he went upstairs after the officer entered the house which we know for a fact was a lie. He then claims that it was not him who ran from the home when the officer arrived, he claimed it was the intruder and accused the officer of allowing the intruder to get away? He claims he then ran over to Karen Neals at this time?

We know by this 911 call that is not true. We know by the statements Darin made to Greg Davis in August that he had come back into the house and immediately ran right back over to his dead son Devon and began to do cpr in front of the officer knowing full well Devon had died over 4 minutes earlier.

03:45:19 Police Officer ...look for a rag..

Somehow Darin was able to convince Darlie that he was the one who made this comment to get a rag? I spoke to officer Waddell myself and he told me straight out he made this statement. It would not have made sense at this time for Darin to have made that statement because officer Waddell did not know where to look for the rags and Darin had never made that comment to Darlie once during the first 3 and a half minutes into the 911 call.
