For over 20 years I have researched this case off and on. Something didn't seem right about the case so i decided to take a closer look.

I would like to thank so many supporters from the Routier case Digging deeper group.

The Routier case Digging deeper group was started on facebook by Gina Howell Woodall. She is a wonderful lady I met through researching the Darlie Routier case. Gina has spent her life helping others. She has many groups on helping finding the missing. She is such a devoted caring little lady.

Gina saw that I was struggling to find a place to post research on the Darlie Routier case. So much of the internet was controlled by people who refused to hear all the facts in the case and Gina started this group so we could all speak opening and share our information with out being slandered and stalked.

I have met so many wonderful people through this group, Gina of course, Kim Storm Sandra Lundblad Koehler Belinda. Too many to mention.

I am so thankful Gina took the time to start this group for us so we can try and help Darlie get back with her family and specially her son Drake.

Thank you so much Gina, and thank you Kim and Sandra for helping me with this article.


22 years on death row. How is this possible when Darin Routier was never investigated?

22 years on death row for a crime she did not do.  Darin hired Doug Mulder because he agreed not to implicate Darin in the crime.  Doug Mulder died a while back taking the secret with him to the grave.

Darlie Routier was arrested only 12 days after the murder of her two children Devon and Damon Routier. How could any investigation on a double homicide be solv

What did the investigators fail to do regarding the investigation into the Darlie Routier case?

The number one mistake that was made by the investigators in Darlie's case was they failed to separate Darin Routier from Darlie.

The second huge mistake was they failed to investigate Darin Routier.

Mistakes that continued to happen from the second the 911 call was made.

In all my life this has to be the worst case I have ever read about regarding errors being made from the second the victim dialed 911. I wanted to take this case apart bit by bit to show the extent of injustice that was done to this girl.

To this day Greg Davis, the prosecutor in the case has continued to spew his hatred towards Darlie Routier and defend the case he built against her. I would like to start with the 911 call first.

This is a copy of the actual 911 call that Darlie made. Mistakes were made immediately after Darlie dialed 911 and continued on through the invesgtigation, arr

911 TRANSCRIPT

Recorded by The Rowlett Police Department
June 6, 1996.

Transcript created by Barry Dickey

(*This transcript was done after the state "enhanced" the recording and is not accurate)

THE COURT REPORT WHO WAS INITAILLY HIRED TO TRANSCRIBE DARLIE'S TRIAL WAS FIRED FROM HER JOB DUE TO 33.000 ERRORS IN THE TRANSCRIPTIONS AND FOR HIDING AND LYING ABOUT SEVERAL BOXES OF TRANSCRIBED DOCUMENTS THAT SHE HID AWAY IN STORAGE AND CLAIMED NOT TO HAVE.

HOW OR WHY THIS DIDNT IMMEDIATELY WARRENT A NEW TRIAL FOR DARLIE IS COMPLETELY UNKNOWN. THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THE NEW REVISED TRANSCRIBED 911 CALL THEY CLAIMED WAS REDONE AND THE MISTAKES WERE CORRECTED, IT WAS OBVIOUS THAT THE MISTAKES WERE NOT CORRECTED AND SOME OF THE ERRORS LEFT IN THE TRANSCRIPTS AND THIS 911 CALL IMPACTED THE JURY A GREAT DEAL.

Time ID Conversation/Sounds

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...

WITHIN THE FIRST EIGHT SECONDS DARLIE HAS TOLD THIS 911 OPERATOR SOMEONE STABBED HER AND HER BOYS.


00:09:24 911 Operator #1 ...who...who did...

DOES IT REALLY MATTER AT THIS POINT WHO STABBED, WHY ISNT SHE ASKING IF THE INTRUDER IS STILL IN THE HOME?


00:11:12 Darlie Routier ...my little boy is dying...

DARLIE HAS TOLD THIS 911 OPERATOR OVER AND OVER THROUGHOUT THIS CALL HER BOYS WERE DEAD AND DYING. AT THIS POINT IT IS UNDERSTANDABLE THAT SHE MAY HAVE JUST IGNORED THIS FIRST STATEMENT ABOUT THE BOYS DYING BECAUSE SHE IS TRYING TO GET HELP TO THE HOUSE FOR DARLIE AND THE BOYS.


00:11:25 RADIO ...(unintelligible) clear...
00:13:07 911 Operator #1 ...hang on ...hang on... hang on

DARLIE JUST TOLD THE OPERATOR HER BOYS WERE DYING AND THE LADY TELLS HER TO HANG ON. UP TO THIS POINT DARIN IS NOT HEARD AT ALL ON THIS 911 CALL.


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

DARLIE IS HEARD BREATHING ON PHONE. DARLIE HAD TO LEAVE THE HALLWAY WHERE THE BOYS WERE AND GO DOWN THE HALL INTO THE KITCHEN TO GET THE PHONE. SHE IS ON HER WAY BACK TO WHERE THE BOYS ARE AND SHE ENCOUNTERS DARIN ON THE STAIRS. SHE IS TELLING DARIN TO HURRY, SHE CONTINUES TO SPEAK WITH HIM BUT IT IS UNKNOWN WHAT ELSE SHE SAYS TO DARIN.


00:16:01 911 Operator #1 ...stand by for medical emergency
00:18:11 Darlie Routier ...ma'am...
00:18:19 911 Operator #1 ...hang on ma'am...
00:21:26 Darlie Routier ...ma'am...
00:23:00 911 Operator #1 ...unknown medical emergency... 5801 Eagle Drive...
00:24:00 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...
00:26:24 Darlie Routier ...ma'am...

DARLIE THEN TURNS HER FOCUS BACK TO THE 911 OPERATOR AND HEARD ASKING HER THREE TIMES MAME? TRYING TO GET HER ATTENTION.


00:27:12 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am... I'm trying to get an ambulance to you... hang on a minute...
00:28:20 RADIO ...(siren)...
00:29:13 Darlie Routier ...oh my God ...my babies are dying...

DARLIE AGAIN EXPLAINS TO HER THAT HER BOYS ARE DYING. AT THIS POINT DARLIE SAYS BOTH BOYS ARE ALIVE.


00:30:12 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...

DARIN HAS BEEN ON THE SCENE FOR 15 SECONDS AND HE SPEAKS FOR THE FIRST TIME. WE CAN ASSUME THAT THIS IS WHEN DARIN HAS ANNOUNCED TO DARLIE THAT DEVON IS ALREADY GONE.


00:31:09 911 Operator #1 ...what's going on ma'am...

I HAVE NO IDEA WHY THIS OPERATOR CONTINUES TO ASK DARLIE WHAT IS GOING ON . WHAT MORE DOES SHE NEED TO KNOW. THEY HAVE BEEN STABBED AND THE BOYS ARE DYING.


00:32:13 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible) ...oh my God...
00:33:49 RADIO ...(tone - signal broadcast)...
00:34:01 Background Voice ...(unintelligible)...
00:35:20 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible) thought he was dead ...oh my God...

I HAVE NO IDEA WHY THIS COMMENT WAS PUT INTO THE 911 CALL BUT THIS IS NOT WHAT DARLIE HAD SAID. DARLIE SCREAMS OUT THAT DEVON IS DEAD AND SHE IS VERY UPSET AT THIS POINT.


00:39:08 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
00:39:29 Darlie Routier ...I don't even know (unintelligible)...

DARIN FIRST ANNOUNCES TO DARLIE THAT DEVON IS DEAD, THEN THE NEXT THING OUT OF HIS MOUTH HE ASKS ABOUT THE INTRUDER. AT THIS POINT DARIN IS SURE NOW THAT DARLIE DOESNT SUSPECT HE WAS THE INTRUDER.

DURING THE TRIAL DOUG MULDER COULD HAVE IMMEDIATELY BROUGHT UP THE FACT THAT DARIN DID NOT HAVE AN ALIBI AND DARLIE WAS NOT THERE TO SEE IF HE CAME FROM HIS ROOM OR FROM ANOTHER PART OF THE HOUSE LIKE THE DINING ROOM FOR INSTANCE.

DOUG MULDER COULD HAVE SHOWN THE JURY THAT DARIN COULD HAVE BEEN THAT INTRUDER, HE COULD HAVE SHOWN THE JURY THE TWO SEPARATE PATHS THAT COULD BE TAKEN TO GET TO THE LANDING OF THE STAIRS, BUT HE BROUGHT NO REASONABLE DOUBT TO THAT JURY.


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)...

WITHIN 43 SECONDS DARIN HAS ASKED DARLIE TWICE NOW ABOUT THE INTRUDER. HE DOESNT ASK FOR HELP OR SCREAM OUT ABOUT THE BOYS, HIS ONE AND ONLY FOCUS IS MAKING SURE THAT DARLIE AND THE OPERATOR BELIEVE THIS WAS DONE BY AND INTRUDER.


00:44:04 911 Operator #1 ...Eagle Drive ...Box 238 ...cross street Linda Vista and Willowbrook ...attention 901 medial emergency...
00:49:28 Darlie Routier ...who was breathing...
00:40:10 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
00:51:15 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible) are they still laying there (unintelligible)...

THIS WAS ANOTHER ERROR MADE BY THE TRANSCRIBER THAT CAUSED THE JURY TO BE SUSPICIOUS OF HER. DARLIE NEVER MADE THIS STATEMENT.


00:51:19 911 Operator #1 ...may be possible stabbing ...5801 Eagle Drive ...Box 238 ...cross street Linda Vista and Willowbrook...
00:55:06 Darlie Routier ...oh my God ...what do we do...

DARLIE FLAT OUT ASKS THIS WOMAN WHAT TO DO AND SHE IS BUSY YAPPING WITH THE OTHER OFFICERS AND DOESNT EVEN BOTHER TO RESPOND TO DARLIE. SHE IS TELLING THE OTHER OFFICER TO STAMP THE CARD, REALLY? A WOMAN IS ON THE PHONE AND SHE HAS TOLD YOU HER BOYS ARE DEAD AND DYING AND ASKS FOR HELP AND STILL ALMOST A MINUTE INTO THE 911 CALL THIS OPERATOR DOESNT OFFER DARLIE ONE WORD OF ADVICE ON HOW TO HELP HER CHILD TO START BREATHING AGAIN.


00:57:17 911 Operator #1 ...time out 2:32...
00:58:26 Darlie Routier ...oh my God...
00:58:28 911 Operator #1 ...stamp me a card Clint...
01:01:02 911 Operator #1 ...80...
01:01:16 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...
01:02:13 Darlie Routier ...oh my God...
01:03:05 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...
01:04:07 911 Operator #1 ...need units going towards 5801 Eagle Drive ...5801 Eagle Drive
01:04:07 Darlie Routier ...oh my God ...my baby's dead...

DARLIE IS SITTING ON THE PHONE LISTENING TO THIS WOMAN CARRY ON A CONVERSATION WITH THE OFFICERS.


01:07:08 Darlie Routier ...Damon ...hold on honey...


DARLIE HAS NO CPR TRAINING AT ALL, SHE DOES WHAT SHE THINKS MIGHT HELP DAMON AND THAT IS TO TALK TO HIM AND COMFORT HIM.


01:08:11 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
01:08:22 911 Operator #1 ...hysterical female on the phone...
01:10:03 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible)...
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...

TO LISTEN TO THIS CALL MAKES ME BOTH SICK AND ANGRY. THE 911 OPERATOR IS GOSSIPING ON THE PHONE ABOUT THE DETAILS AND ALL DARIN HAS DONE IS HARASS DARLIE OVER AND OVER AGAIN ABOUT THIS INTRUDER MAKING SURE BOTH DARLIE AND THE OPERATOR ARE CONVINCED THIS WAS AN INTRUDER.


01:12:21 Darin Routier ...oh my God ...(unintelligible) ...came in here...

AGAIN HE IS PUSHING THAT INTRUDER THEORY MAKING SURE THAT THE 911 OPERATOR KNOWS AND BELIEVES THIS WAS DONE BY AN INTRUDER. THIS DETAIL WAS NEVER EVEN MENTIONED IN COURT. IT WASNT DARLIE WHO WAS CONCERNED PUSHING THE INTRUDER THEORY THE ENTIRE TIME IT WAS DARIN THAT IS OBVIOUS.


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

REALLY, CALM DOWN AND TALK TO ME? DARLIE HAS TOLD THIS WOMAN OVER THREE TIMES THEY WERE STABBED AND THE BOYS ARE DYING. SHOULDNT IT BE THE OPERATOR NOW DOING THE TALKING AND INTRUCTING DARLIE ON HOW TO HELP HER CHILDREN BREATH AGAIN?


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

THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT THIS WOMAN BULLIED DARLIE THROUGH THIS ENTIRE CALL. DARLIE KNOWS THIS WOMAN IS HER LIFELINE RIGHT NOW AND FOLLOWS HER EVERY INSTRUCTION DESPERATE TO GET HER TO REALIZE HOW BAD THE SITUATION IS BUT THIS OPERATOR IS AND WAS CONCERNED ABOUT ONLY ONE THING, GOSSIP.


01:16:26 SOUND ...(unintelligible)...
01:17:12 911 Operator #1 ...twice Clint...

THIS OPERATOR GETS ANGRY WITH DARLIE AND THEN SHE TURNS HER ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY BACK TO THE OFFICER? WHY WASNT THIS POINTED OUT TO THE JURY?


01:18:26 Darlie Routier ...didn't you get my address...
01:20:19 911 Operator #1 ...5801 Eagle...
01:22:00 Darlie Routier ...yes ...we need help...

AGAIN DARLIE IS BEGGING THIS WOMAN TO SAY SOMETHING TO HELP HER HELP HER BOYS AND SHE COMPLETELY IGNORES HER.


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

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHY THE JURY WAS POINTED OUT HOW MANY TIMES DARIN INTERUPTED THIS 911 CALL TO HARP OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN ABOUT THIS SO CALLED INTRUDER? IT IS CLEAR DARIN IS DESPERATE TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE BELIEVES THIS WAS DONE BY AN INTRUDER


01:24:23 911 Operator #1 ...2:33 code...
01:26:15 Darlie Routier ...we got to find out who it was...

DARLIE IS OBVIOUSLY TRYING TO GET DARIN TO FOCUS ON THE BOYS AND STOP HARASSING HER ABOUT THE INTRUDER SO SHE TELLS HIM WE WILL HAVE TO FIND OUT, WE DONT KNOW NOW BUT WE WILL FIND OUT.


01:27:12 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am...
01:28:04 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am listen ...listen to me...
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)...
01:32:20 Darlie Routier ...oh my God...
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...
01:36:12 Darlie Routier ...oh my God...

I CAN HARDLY BELIEVE I AM ACTUALLY READING THIS. THE 911 OPERATOR TELLS DARLIE AGAIN TO LISTEN TO HER TO PAY ATTENTION AND THEN SHE GOES RIGHT BACK TO FOCUSING ON CLINT AGAIN. IS THIS REALLY HAPPENING WITH THIS 911 OPERATOR?


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 ...
01:38:23 RADIO ...(unintelligible) start that way (unintelligible)... will revise...
01:39:28 911 Operator #1 ...I need you to talk to me...
01:41:21 Darlie Routier ...what ...what ...what...
01:44:25 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...

BY THIS TIME IN THE 911 CALL I FEEL SICK. IT IS OBVIOUS THAT DARIN IS CONSTANTLY HARASSING DARLIE IN THE BACKGROUND.


01:44:28 Darlie Routier ...my babies are dead (unintelligible)...
01:46:20 RADIO ...go ahead and start that way ...siren code 4 ...advise...
01:47:10 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible)...
01:48:03 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible) do you want honey ...hold on (unintelligible)...
01:49:17 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am ...I can't understand you...
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...

AM I ACTUALLY HEARING THIS 911 OPERATOR RIGHT? WE ARE ALMOST 2 MINUTES INTO THE CALL AND SHE IS STILL BULLYING DARLIE DEMANDING SHE TALK TO HER? WHAT THE HELL MORE DOES THIS WOMAN NEED TO KNOW? I THINK AT THIS POINT ITS ABOUT TIME THE OPERATOR DOES THE TALKING AND STARTS TO HELP DARLIE HELP HER SON START BREATHING AGAIN. SHE HAS NO IDEA WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE ROUTIER HOME BECAUSE HER ONLY CONCERN WAS WHAT WAS GOING ON WITH OFFICER CLINT. WAS THAT JURY SO BLIND WITH HATE FOR DARLIE THEY JUST DIDN'S SEE THE FACTS HERE?


01:52:19 Darlie Routier ...I'm talking to my babies ...they're dying...
01:55:03 911 Operator #1 ...what is going on...

OK, I HAVE LOST COUNT OF HOW MANY TIMES THIS WOMAN HAS ASKED DARLIE TO TELL HER WHAT IS GOING ON. SHE JUST SAID FOR THE FOURTH TIME, MY SONS ARE DEAD AND DYING, WHY THE HELL ISN'T THIS OPERATOR FOCUSING ON HELPING DARLIE HELP HER BOYS? DARIN HAS ALREADY ANNOUNCED TO DARLIE DEVON IS GONE.


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...
02:02:20 Darlie Routier ...some man ...came in ...stabbed my babies ...stabbed me ...I woke up ...I was fighting ...he ran out through the garage ...threw the knife down ...my babies are dying ...they're dead ...oh my God...
02:14:23 911 Operator #1 ...ok ...stay on the phone with me...

I LOST COUNT OF HOW MANY TIMES THE DARLIE HATERS CLAIMED DARLIE DELIBERATELY STAYED ON THAT PHONE TO AVOID HELPING HER BOYS. I LOST COUNT HOW MANY TIMES DARLIE TOLD THIS USELESS OPERATOR HER SONS WERE DEAD AND DYING, AND ALL SHE CAN SAY IS STAY ON THE PHONE WITH ME? SERIOUSLY?



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...

NOT ONE PERSON MENTIONED THE COMPLETE NEGLIGENCE OF THIS 911 OPERATOR. HER FOCUS WASN'T DARLIE OR HER DYING BOYS, THIS WOMAN WAS COMPLETELY FOCUSED ON WHAT OFFICER CLINT WAS DOING, WHERE HE WAS, WHAT WAS GOING ON WITH HIM. SHE DIDN'T EVEN REALIZE DARIN WAS ON THE SCENE RIGHT AFTER DARLIE DIALED 911.


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...

THIS OPERATOR SHOULD HAVE BEEN IMMEDIATELY INVESTIGATED AND FIRED FOR HER PERFORMANCE DURING THIS CALL. THE ENTIRE TIME HER ONLY FOCUS WAS ON THE OTHER EMPLOYEES AT THE POLICE DEPARTMENT, SHE OFFERED NO HELP TO DARLIE DURING THIS ENTIRE 911 CALL. WHY WASN'T SHE CHARGED WITH AT LEAST NEGLECT?


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...

NEED I SAY MORE, THIS 911 OPERATOR DOES NOT HAVE A CLUE WHAT IS GOING ON IN THAT ROUTIER HOME. HOW WAS IT POSSIBLE THAT SHE WAS ABLE TO KEEP HER JOB AFTER THIS CALL?


02:25:28 Darlie Routier ...oh my God ...oh my God...
02:28:08 911 Operator #1 ...ok ...thanks...
02:28:21 Darlie Routier ...oh my God...
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...

THIS WOMAN STILL HAS NOT OFFERED ANY ASSISTANCE TO DARLIE ON HOW TO HELP HER BOYS, BUT SHE IS CONCERNED NOW OVER TWO MINUTES INTO THE CALL WHO WAS WITH DARLIE?


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

I HAVE NO IDEA WHY DARLIE SAID SHE WAS YELLING FOR KAREN, BECAUSE SHE IS CLEARLY HEARD YELLING OUT DARINS NAME. DARIN DISAPPEARED SOMEWHERE AND SHE IS CALLING OUT FOR HIM.


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...

STILL THIS WOMAN KNOWS DARLIE HAS TWO BOYS, BUT SHE COMPLETELY IGNORES DARLIE BEGGING HER FOR HELP ON HOW TO HELP HER BOYS.


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...

I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND HOW ANY JURY COULD HAVE DISMISSED THIS 911 OPERATOR'S NEGLIGENCE IN THIS CASE? THIS IS ALSO ANOTHER ADMISSION THAT DARIN WAS NOT THERE BEFORE SHE DIALED 911 AS HE CLAIMED. SHE IS ADMITTING DARIN JUST CAME DOWN, MEANING HE WASN'T THERE BEFORE SHE DIALED 911.



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

EVERYTIME I GO THIS CALL I WANT TO JUST SCREAM. IS SHE REALLY ASKING DARLIE ALMOST THREE MINUTES INTO THIS 911 CALL HOW MANY BOYS SHE HAS? WHY THE HELL DOES THIS MATTER AT THIS POINT WHEN DARLIE HAS ALREADY TOLD HER ONE HAS ALREADY DIED AND THE OTHER IS DYING?


02:46:06 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
02:46:25 Darlie Routier ...there's two of 'em ...there's two...


ALL OF A SUDDEN DARIN APPEARS INTERUPTING DARLIE WHILE SHE IS DESPERATELY TRYING TO GET HELP. THE ONLY THING DARIN HAS DONE THROUGH THIS ENTIRE 911 CALL IS MAKE SURE THIS 911 OPERATOR BELIEVED THIS AS AN INTRUDER.


02:48:18 RADIO ...what's the cross street on that address on Eagle...
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)...

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? CALM DOWN? ONE BOY IS DEAD AND THE OTHER IS DYING AND THIS WOMAN HAS OFFERED NO ASSISTANCE TO DARLIE WHAT SO EVER AND SHE IS TELLING HER TO CALM DOWN?


02:53:21 Darlie Routier ...I feel really bad ...I think I'm dying...
02:55:06 RADIO ...228...
02:56:06 911 Operator #1 ...go ahead...


DARLIE NOW ESCALATES THE SITUATION TO TRY AND GET THIS WOMAN TO FOCUS AND HELP HER BY NOW TELLING HER SHE THINKS SHE IS DYING AND THIS 911 OPERATOR COMPLETELY IGNORES EVERYTHING DARLIE HAS SAID AND IS SAYING TO CONTINUE ON WITH HER CONVERSATION WITH THE OFFICERS. WHAT WAS THAT JURY THINKING WHILE ALL THIS WAS GOING ON? WHY ISN'T THIS 911 OPERATOR HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING HERE?


02:58:12 RADIO ...(unintelligible) address again (unintelligible)...
02:59:12 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...
02:59:22 Darlie Routier ...when are they going to be here...
03:00:22 911 Operator #1 ...5801 Eagle Drive ...5801 Eagle Drive...
03:03:28 Darlie Routier ...when are they going to be here...
03:03:29 911 Operator #1 ...going to be a stabbing...
03:05:20 Darlie Routier ...when are they going to be here...

OVER THREE MINUTES INTO THE CALL SHE IS STILL COMPLETELY IGNORING DARLIE AND CARRYING ON HER CONVERSATION WITH THE OFFICERS. HOW IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE?


03:06:20 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am ...they're on their way...
03:08:00 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...
03:08:08 Darlie Routier ...I gotta just sit here forever ...oh my God...
03:11:14 911 Operator #1 ...2:35...
03:12:05 Darie Routier ...who would do this ...who would do this...
03:13:09 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...

DARLIE IS NOW ASKING DARIN WHO WOULD DO THIS AS THOUGH SHE KNOWS DARIN KNOWS WHO HAD DONE THIS


03:14:26 911 Operator #1 ...(sounds of typing on computer keyboard)...
03:16:08 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am ...how old are your boys...
03:18:20 Darin Routier ...what...
03:19:03 911 Operator #1 ...how old are your boys...
03:20:04 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...
03:20:21 911 Operator #1 ...no...
03:21:01 Darlie Routier ...seven and five...
03:22:17 911 Operator #1 ...ok...

THIS 911 OPERATOR HAS THE NERVE TO SIT THERE AND ASK THE AGE OF THE BOYS WHEN DARLIE HAS BEEN BEGGING HER FOR HELP FOR OVER THREE MINUTES? WHY WASN'T THIS OPERATORS NEGLIGENCE BROUGHT UP AT TRIAL?


03:23:08 Darlie Routier ...oh my God ...oh my God ...oh ...he's dead...
03:29:02 911 Operator #1 ...calm down ...can you...

AGAIN DARLIE TELLS THIS WOMAN HER SON IS DEAD AND ALL SHE CAN SAY TO HER IS CALM DOWN? SHE DOESNT OFFER DARLIE ONE SINGLE WORD ON HOW TO START CPR ON EITHER BOY?


03:29:03 Darlie Routier ...oh God ...Devon no ...oh my God...
03:30:27 SOUND ...(dog barking)...

THE FACT THAT THE DOG IS HEARD BARKING FOR THE FIRST TIME SHOULD HAVE SPARKED A HUGE INVESTIGATION INTO DARIN. IT IS OBVIOUS DARLIE IS WITH HER BOYS AT THIS TIME AND DARIN HAS GONE AND OPENED THE DOOR TO THE ROOM WHERE HE HAD LOCKED THE DOG UP EARLIER. THIS IS THE ONLY TIME WE HEAR THAT DOG BARK, DARIN RAN PAST HIS LIVING SON DAMON AND WAS MORE CONCERNED ABOUT DOING WHAT EVER UPSTAIRS INSTEAD OF OFFERING HIS SON DAMON ANY ASSISTANCE WHAT SO EVER.


03:35:02 911 Operator #1 ...is your name Darlie...
03:36:11 Darlie Routier ...yes...
03:36:26 911 Operator #1 ...this is her...
03:37:09 911 Operator #1 ...is your husband's name Darin...
03:38:22 Darlie Routier ...yes ...please hurry ...God they're taking forever...
03:41:20 911 Operator #1 ...there's nobody in your house ...there was ...was...
03:44:05 911 Operator #1 ...you don't know who did this...

ALMOST FOUR MINUTES INTO THE 911 CALL AND THIS OPERATOR OFFERED DARLIE NO HELP WHAT SO EVER.


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


THIS IS WHEN DARIN AND WADDELL WALKED INTO THE HOUSE TOGETHER. OFFICER WADDELL IS TELLING DARLIE TO GET A RAG AND DAIRN HAS RAN OVER PRETENDING TO NOT KNOW DEVON HAD PASSED SEVERAL MINUTES EARLIER. DARIN CLAIMED THE REASON HE NEVER HELPED DAMON WAS BECAUSE HE HAD NO PULSE, YET WHEN OFFICER WADDELL CAME IN HE SAID DAMON WAS MOVING TRYING TO CRAWL LOOKING AROUND THE ROOM. DARIN NEVER TOUCHED DAMON BEFORE OR AFTER THIS 911 CALL.

DARIN CLAIMED HE HAD DONE CPR ON DEVON WHEN HE FIRST CAME DOWN STAIRS, YET INSTEAD OF HELPING DAMON HE RUSHES RIGHT OVER TO DEVON AND DOES THIS HORRIFIC CPR ATTEMPT ON DEVON IN FRONT OF OFFICER WADDELL. WADDELL HAD NO IDEA DARIN HAD ALREADY DONE CPR ON DEVON AND ANNOUNCED HIM DEAD AND STOPPED ANY AND ALL CPR HE STARTED ON HIM MINUTES EARLIER.


03:46:11 Darlie Routier ...they killed our babies...

THEY WERE SO DESPERATE TO TRY AND MAKE DARLIE LOOK THE LIAR THE HATERS CLAIMED SHE CHANGED HER STORY BY SAYING FIRST THERE WAS ONE INTRUDER THEN SAYING LATER THERE WAS MORE THAN ONE. DARLIE USED THEY IN THE SINGULAR SENSE, NOT PLURAL THAT WAS VERY OBVIOUS HERE.


03:48:03 Police Officer ...lay down ...ok ...just sit down ...(unintelligible)
03:51:11 911 Operator #1 ...(sounds of typing on computer keyboard)...
03:52:13 Darlie Routier ...no ...he ran out ...uh ...they ran out in the garage ...I was sleeping...
03:54:09 911 Operator #1 ...(unintelligible)...
03:56:19 Darlie Routier ...my babies over here already cut ...can I (unintelligible)...
03:59:29 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible) phone is right there...

DARIN IS NOT MAKING THIS COMMENT. THEY THREW THIS IN JUST TO CONFUSE THE JURY. DARIN LEFT THE HOUSE RIGHT AFTER OFFICER WADDELL ARRIVED. OFFICER WADDELL SAID DARIN RAN OVER AND WAS DOING CPR ON DEVON WHEN THEY FIRST CAME IN, BUT ONCE HE TURNED HIS BACK TO FOCUS ON DARLIE DARIN SLIPPED OUT OF THE HOUSE. HE ASSUMED DARIN WENT OVER TO KARENS BUT HE DIDN'T GO TO KARENS UNTIL LONG AFTER THIS 911 CALL.

GREG DAVIS AND DOUG MULDER BOTH KNEW DARIN SNUCK OUT OF THAT HOUSE AT THIS TIME AND HE WAS NEVER QUESTIONED AS TO WHERE HE WENT OR WHAT HE DID AT THIS TIME. ALL WE KNOW IS HE DIDN'T GO FOR HELP FOR HIS FAMILY.


04:01:28 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible)...
04:03:01 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...
04:05:02 Darlie Routier ...ya'll look out in the garage ...look out in the garage ...they left a knife laying on...

IT WAS OBVIOUS DARLIE BELIEVED THE INTRUDER WAS STILL IN THE GARAGE. IT NEVER OCCURED TO HER AT THIS TIME THAT DARIN WAS THAT INTRUDER AND HE HAD GOTTEN FROM THE GARAGE TO THE LANDING OF THE STAIRS WITHOUT HER EVER SEEING HIM


04:08:21 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...
04:09:19 911 Operator #1 ...there's a knife ...don't touch anything...
04:11:18 Darlie Routier ...I already touched it and picked it up...

DARLIE WAS NOT MAKING EXCUSES ABOUT THE KNIFE, SHE WAS SPEAKING TO SEVERAL DIFFERENT PEOPLE AT THE SAME TIME. SHE WAS RESPONDING TO THE OPERATORS COMMENTS ABOUT THE KNIFE.


04:12:05 RADIO ...10-4...
04:15:20 911 Operator #1 ...who's out there ...is anybody out there...

NOW WHY WOULD THIS OPETATOR BE CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT WAS GOING ON WITH THE OFFICERS? SHE IS KEEPING DARLIE ON THE PHONE, NOT ONCE OFFERING HER ANY ASSISTANCE.
04:16:07 Police Officer ...(unintelligible)...
04:17:06 Darlie Routier ...I don't know ...I was sleeping...
04:18:14 911 Operator #1 ...ok ma'am ...listen ...there's a police officer at your front door ...is your front door unlocked...

THIS OPERATOR DOESN'T HAVE A CLUE WHAT IS GOING ON IN THAT HOME. SHE HAD NO IDEA THE ENTIRE TIME OFFICER WADDELL WAS ALREADY IN THE HOME.


04:22:11 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...
04:22:15 Darlie Routier ...yes ma'am ...but where's the ambulance...
04:24:21 911 Operator #1 ...ok...
04:24:23 Darlie Routier ...they're barely breathing...
04:26:17 Darlie Routier ...if they don't get it here they're gonna be dead ...my God they're (unintelligible) ...hurry ...please hurry...
04:31:13 911 Operator #1 ...ok ...they're ...they're...

DARLIE NEVER ONCE ASKED FOR HELP FOR HERSELF, SHE BEGGED THAT 911 OPERATOR TO GET HELP TO HER BOYS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AND THAT WOMAN COMPLETELY IGNORED HER.


04:32:18 Police Officer ...what about you...
04:33:06 911 Operator #1 ...is 82 out on Eagle...
04:34:18 Darlie Routier ...huh...

THIS IS WHAT I DO NOT UNDERSTAND. THE SECOND OFFICER WHO ENTERED THE HOME IS ASKING DARLIE TO HELP HERSELF HERE AND DARIN IS HEARD IN THE BACK GROUND DISTRACTING THESE OFFICERS FROM OFFERING ANY ASSISTANCE TO DARLIE. HE IS INTERUPTING THE POLICE TO TRY AND MAKE HIS CLAIMS THAT AN INTRUDER TOOK AND RAN. HOW COULD EVERYONE HAVE MISSED THIS? THIS IS THE REASON WE KNOW FOR A FACT DARIN WAS NEVER INVESTIGATED. ALL THE POLICE NEEDED TO DO WAS LISTEN TO THIS 911 CALL AND COMPARE IT TO DARINS POLICE STATEMENT HE WROTE TWO DAYS LATER. ONCE THEY COMPARED THEM TO THE WITNESS STATEMENTS IT WAS OBVIOUS WHO COMMITTED THIS CRIME.

I BELIEVE THE REASON THIS INVESTIGATION WAS STIRRED AWAY FROM DARIN WAS BECAUSE DETECTIVE PATTERSON ARRIVED ON THE SCENE AND KNEW HIS SON KNEW DARIN AND HE WAS ALREADY IN TROUBLE WITH THE LAW AS IT WAS. HE KNEW BY IMPLICATING DARIN HE COULD BE IMPLICATING HIS OWN SON.


04:35:12 Darin Routier ...they took (unintelligible) ...they ran (unintelligible)...
04:36:28 911 Operator #2 ...(unintelligible)...

REALLY DARIN? DAMON IS LAYING THERE IN FRONT OF EVERYONE DYING LOOKING UP AT YOU AND YOU NEVER TOUCHED THAT BOY, EVEN AFTER DARLIE AND THE OFFICERS TOLD YOU TOO, YOU NEVER TOUCHED OR WENT NEAR DAMON THE ENTIRE TIME?


04:37:08 Darlie Routier ...we're at Eagle ...5801 Eagle ...my God and hurry...
04:41:03 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...
04:41:22 911 Operator #1 ...82 ...are you out...
04:42:25 Police Officer ...nothing's gone Mrs. Routier...
04:44:10 Darlie Routier ...oh my God ...oh my God ...why would they do this...
04:48:03 RADIO ...(unintelligible) to advise (unintelligible) 200...
04:50:18 Police Officer ...(unintelligible) the problem Mrs. Routier...
04:50:21 911 Operator #1 ...what'd he say...

THIS IS WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND. IT WAS CLEARLY DARIN WHO WAS PUSHING THE INTRUDER THEORY THE WHOLE TIME. HE IS THE ONE STANDING THERE TRYING TO TELL THE OFFICERS HE TOOK HE RAN, YET THEY COMPLETELY TWISTED THE WORDS HERE TO MAKE IT APPEAR DARLIE WAS THE ONE PUSHING THE INTRUDER. SHE NEVER SAYS A WORD AT THIS TIME ABOUT ANY INTRUDER, THEY WERE SPEAKING TO DARIN NOT DARLIE.


04:51:29 Darlie Routier ...why would they do this...
04:53:08 Darlie Routier ...I'm (unintelligible)...
04:54:07 911 Operator #1 ...ok ...listen ma'am ...need to ...need to let the officers in the front door ...ok...
04:59:11 Darlie Routier ...what...

DARLIE IS CLEARLY LOOKING AT DARIN AGAIN WANTING TO KNOW WHY THEY WOULD HAVE ATTACKED HER AND HER BOYS. SHE IS ASKING AS THOUGH EXPECTING AN ANSWER FROM HIM.


05:00:04 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am..
05:00:22 Darlie Routier ...what ...what...
05:01:15 911 Operator #1 ...need to let the police officers in the front door...
05:04:21 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible) his knife was lying over there and I already picked it up...

FIRST THE OFFICER BROUGHT UP THE KNIFE, AND THEN THE OPERATOR SAYS SOMETHING ABOUT THE KNIFE. IT WAS OBVIOUS SHE WAS SPEAKING TO MANY PEOPLE AT THE SAME TIME, NOT JUST ONE PERSON.


05:08:19 911 Operator #1 ...ok ...it's alright ...it's ok...
05:09:20 Darlie Routier ...God ...I bet if we could have gotten the prints maybe ...maybe...

I DO NOT BLAME DARLIE FOR BEING CONCERNED THAT SHE MAY HAVE DAMAGED EVIDENCE BY PICKING IT UP AT THIS POINT. WHY DID THEY MAKE SUCH A BIG DEAL ABOUT THIS COMMENT.

WHY WASN'T THE JURY ASKING WHY DARIN WAS NOT TRYING TO HELP DAMON ALL THIS TIME WHEN HE CLAIMED TO HAVE OVER 7 YEARS OF CPR TRAINING?


05:13:18 Police Officer ...(unintelligible)...
05:14:18 RADIO ...82 ...we'll be (unintelligible)...
05:17:12 Darlie Routier ...ok ...it'll be...
05:18:08 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am ...hang on ...hang on a second...

DARLIE HATERS HAD NO PROBLEM ACCUSING HER OF BEING NEGLIGENT BY STAYING ON THE PHONE WITH THE 911 OPERATOR WHEN THEY KNEW FOR A FACT THIS 911 OPERATOR BULLIED DARLIE THE ENTIRE TIME. SHE KEPT HER ON THE PHONE TO MAKE SURE SHE GOT ALL THE GOSSIP FIRST HAND, SHE SURE AS HELL NEVER OFFERED DARLIE ANY HELP AT ANY TIME DURING THIS ENTIRE CALL.


05:19:09 Darlie Routier ...somebody who did it intentionally walked in here and did it Darin...

ONCE DARLIE'S TONE CHANGED AND SHE IS HEARD SAYING THIS TO DARIN THEY SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THAT DARLIE WAS SUSPICIOUS THAT DARIN WAS BEHIND THIS. DARLIE KNOWS AT THIS POINT THIS WAS NO ROBBERY, SHE KNOWS SOMEONE TRIED TO KILL HER AND HER BOYS.

IF DARLIE WAS THE ONE WHO SET UP AND STAGED THIS WHY IS DARIN STILL ALIVE WHEN HE HAD A HUGE LIFE INSURANCE POLICY ON HIMSELF?


05:20:19 911 Operator #1 ...82 ...10-9...

DARIN IS STILL THERE ARGUING WITH DARLIE TRYING TO CONVINCE HER THIS WAS AN ATTEMPTED ROBBERY, HOW COULD SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE MISSED THESE FACTS AND DETAILS?

05:35:23 911 Operator #1 ...ok ...go talk to him ...ok...
05:38:03 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...

I NOTICED THEY JUST HAPPEN TO LEAVE OUT A VERY IMPORTANT DETAIL HERE. AT THE END OF THIS CALL DARLIE ASKS THE OPERATOR FOR PERMISSION TO FINALLY HANG UP THE PHONE, PROVING THIS OPERATOR BULLIED DARLIE THE ENTIRE TIME INTO STAYING ON THE PHONE SO SHE COULD GET ALL THE GOSSIP.

Total length of tape is 5:44:28

Darlie Routier was introduced to her husband Darin Routier when she was only 15 years old.

Darlie was born in 1970. In 1985 Darlie was introduced to Darin Rouiter when she was only 15. Had Darllie been more mature before meeting or dating Darin things may have turned out differently. Darlie came from a completely different background than Darin did. She didn't have an easy life growing up with her mother and two younger siblings. Though it appears they did become closer through the years the earlier years were very difficult.

Darlie Kee was an attractive woman , and there had been a few different men in her life. At one point Darlie accused one of stepfathers of sexually molesting her for many years.

I was surprised when I saw pictures of Darlie and Darin when they first met because they appeared to exact opposites including their appearance. Darin appeared to pay a lot of attention to Darlie, being obsessed with her looks. It appeared more of an obsession with Darin, but I do believe Darlie honestly did love Darin, maybe still does in some ways.

It would be difficult to mistrust the man you basically grew up with and had three children with.

Darin grew up much different than Darlie did. They appeared financially stable and basically normal on the outside. It wasn't until the murders that we started to see the huge cracks in the family. It almost reminded me of the Kemper case I love my mother/I hate my mother. Darins mother did appear to control everyone and everything.

I remember Darin making the comment that all he ever wanted was just to have a normal life and normal job, but his mother wouldn't have any part of that. She came from a long line of hard workers according to her, and she wouldn't accept anything less from her own children. It was obvious Darin was forced to succeed. It wasn't something he thrived for on his own.

I honestly believe that the controlling behavior from Darin's mother is what drove Darin to turn to crime to keep up with his lifestyle, that and his addition for drugs, mainly cocaine.

I believe it was the cocaine that night of the murders that kept Darins mind sharp and alert enough to be able to slide through the crime scene undetected. He appeared to have an answer for everything.

Darin was also known to be a very frequent user of cocaine. That would have also contributed to his desperate need to stay financially stable.


Darin and Darlie dated for about three years until she graduated high school. Darin took her on a skiing trip with her family and proposed to her.

When a girl who looks like Darlie is being lured by a man who looks like Darin he obviously had to resort to other measures in order to flatter her. Darlie didn't come from money as Darin had so the idea of moving on to a better life financially had to be very appealing to Darlie.

Through my research my do believe Darlie did love Darin, she may still love him. I never felt that from Darin. He appeared to talk about Darlie like she was one of his possessions, trophy of sorts. It really because clear after her arrest when Darin made so many degrading and perverted comments about Darlie and her body.

At one point Darin had laughed and made the joke that he got lucky when the knife missed his implants. In other interview Darin was criticized for always talking about Darlie in a sexual perverted way. During the Leeza interview Leeza confronted Darin about his behavior but instead of shutting his mouth and acting embarrassed about his behavior, he jumped in and interrupted the host just to make more sickening perverted comments about Darlie's body and breast size. The worst part is hearing that sickening sly tone he uses when he begins to describe Darlie in a sexual way. It got to the point I just couldn't bring myself to watch the interviews anymore.

By 1993 Darin and Darlie already had three children under the age of 5 and had moved into a new home that was over 3400 sq ft in an upscale neighborhood.

It was amazing to me after watching the interviews how Darin had apparently been able to accomplish all of this on his own with no help from anyone, not even his own family. I wondered how this was possible? Darin hadn't been out of school that long, he had just a basic job for average pay and Darlie stopped working before the first child Devon was born. He just started a new business yet he was living like a millionaire. How was this even possible?

I knew that Darin worked for a computer company and he had a friend named Barbara Jovell who eventually was fired from her job and ended up working for Darin.

Darin made the comment how he had spoken to his employee at the computer company and told them he was opening his own business that going to be in direct conflict or competition with their company and Darin claimed they had no issues at all with this. I found that very hard to believe.

While Darin was building his own business at home he continued to work for this company. All of sudden Darin was on his own and the money started to roll in. I found that more than suspicious.

Through research I found a few people who knew both Barbara Jovell and Darin. The feelings I got from everyone I spoke to was not on a positive note for either of them.

Many had suspected that Darin had been building his supplies for his new business by taking supplies from his employer while working there. This was a rumor that came from several people. Though Darin was not charged it did make sense to me how he was able to move up the financial ladder so quickly. Before and during the trial nothing about Darin's criminal past ever came up, so it was understandable that people didn't suspect Darin at first.


I wasn't able to get in touch with anyone at that beginning who knew or was willing to talk about Darlie in any depth. From what I did learn about her it didn't appear to be in her nature to resort to stealing in order to live the better lifestyle. Darlie didn't have to accomplish as much as Darin did in order to flatter her mother.

I did hear from many that Darlie was a very good mother. She appeared to spend a lot of time with her boys and every holiday no matter what it was turned out to be a huge deal for Darlie. She was close to the boys friends and appeared to have nothing to hide.

The only negative thing that I came across regarding Darlie was the fact that she had given her underage babysitter smokes and a bit of pot. Though some may shun upon that, it happens a lot more often then anyone cares to admit. Greg Davis ripped Darlie apart before and during the trial. His hatred towards here was obvious. The personal attack he took against her character had to influence the jury in a horrible way.

There was no doubt Darlie loved animals. She kept a clean beautiful home, yet she had no issues having pets all around her all the time. That spoke volumes to me on they type of person she was. Darlie had a Pom dog. This breed of dog is very high maintenance. They need a lot of attention and grooming. They constantly bark all the time at everything. Having a small fragile dog like this with three small kids in the house would have been a full time job all on its own.

Darlie did care for her family and home. I know her mother made the mistake of commenting on how Darlie made this huge meal on June 5th, but it was actually home made soup. The non Darlie supporters took this comment and slandered it for years. If you really think about it, home made buns and soup for dinner is a big deal. It takes a whole day just to prepare the buns from scratch, let alone the soup.

People often forget Darlie was just a child when she met Darin. From the age of 15 Darin was able to mold and groom her into what ever he wanted. He bought her all the fancy clothes, jewelry, nice house, new car all the things any teenager would ever dream of. What Darlie didn't know was all this wasn't just for her. Darin was obsessed with being the best, having the best that was clear the way he spoke in his interviews.

I remember watching an interview where Darin made the comment to the reporter. I had the prettiest house on the block and the prettiest wife on the block, he never mentioned a word about his family or children and he referred to Darlie like she was an object he owned and created. It made my skin crawl to hear him say that.

I wish I knew as much about Darin back then as I know today. I do believe her appeals would have been handled much differently.



Darin made it no secret they were living high in every way possible.

It was no secret that Darin was a frequent user of drugs, mainly cocaine. I didn't realize this until years into researching her case, but when I did learn this it gave me a whole new outlook on how I was viewing this case.

I wondering why it wasn't made more public that police found cocaine in Darin's room during the investigation. More importantly, why wasn't Darin charged for drugs or even drug tested that night?

Cocaine has many side effects and some of them include extreme mood swings, extreme anger and a high increase of sexual drive. Considering that status of their relationship the very first thing that should have been done was Darin should have been separated immediately from Darlie and taken in for processing and drug tested, but he wasn't.

Darin had full control of that entire crime scene right from the second Darlie saw him on the stairs. The minute Darin realized that Darlie didn't know if he had come out of his room or not he was free to put on the biggest show of his life. According to the 911 call and witnesses that is exactly what Darin did and has continued to do since.

I have read a crime case where the husband and wife were not immediately separated from each other as soon as possible. Darin and Darlie were instructed to go and sit side by side beside a sliding glass door while the police searched the home for an intruder? The officers stated that they had been whispering to each from the second the were together.

This brought me to a comment that Darin made to the police right after they arrived. An officer asked Darin why he hadn't helped Darlie or Damon. The only victim Darin went to was Devon and he had announced Devon dead with in seconds of Darlie first calling 911.

Darin told the officers and later wrote in his police statement 2 days later, the reason he didn't help Darlie was because he claims he didn't know she was hurt until after he came back from the neighbors. So the police believed that Darin had spent over 10 minutes around this woman, even sitting right next to her for several minutes and he claimed he had no idea she as injured until six minutes later? I knew right then there was a serious problem with Darin's story.

Darin not only refused to help Darlie, he was also asked why he never tried to help Damon. I was absolutely shocked to hear Darin say the reason he never helped Damon was because he had no pulse. Darin also claimed that he didn't know Damon was injured? I then went to officer David Waddells testimony and statements.

Officer Waddell was the first responding officer. When he got the call he was only 1.9 miles away from the Routier home. He said he arrived at the house with in 2 to 3 minutes. This story matched the details the neighbor Mr. Gorsuch gave. Mr. Gorsuch was a neighbor who lived right across the street. He had been working late that night and arrived home just minutes before the attack. Right after he heard Waddell pull up he sat straight up in his bed and looked out his window. His bedroom window was open due to how hot it was that night. He said he saw Darin and knew for a fact it was Darin who had run from around the fountain to meet officer Waddell in the front yard. He described Darin and screaming someone stabbed my wife and kids. This proved to me for a fact that Darin not only knew at that point Darlie had been stabbed, but he also knew Damon was bleeding to death also.

I kept reading Waddells statement and he says he asked Darin what he was doing. Darin told him he was running over to his neighbors to get help because she was a nurse. At that time officer Waddell told Darin to go back into the house with him.

According to the neighbor and officer Waddell Darin and him went back into the house together.

Waddell said he first saw Damon and he was alive on the floor in a pool of blood looking up trying to breath, he looked past him and saw Devon and knew immediately Devon was gone. He then saw Darlie who was holding a rag to her neck and was talking on the phone. Talking and screaming.

This brought me back to Darin immediately. How was it possible that Darin claimed he didn't know Darlie or Damon were injured when he saw exactly the same thing Waddell described when they came in.

Officer Waddell said another shocking statement. He said with out saying a word to Darin, Darin ran into the house past his living son Damon and ran right over to Devon who he knew and described as obviously already passed away.

I knew immediately there were some very serious issues with Darin's story. I knew at this point Darin had deliberately denied both Darlie and Damon any help at all.

If Darlie was the one who had done this, why was Darin refusing to help not just her but her living son too?

I continued on to read and watch officer Waddells statements and interviews. The more I read the sicker I felt. Was it even possible that all this evidence and information went unnoticed? Why wasn't any of this investigated immediately?

Officer Waddell went on to say that while he was focusing on Darlie Darin had rushed over to Devon and he began this horrific cpr on him. After I read this I was shaking so bad I could hardly control my body.

I knew by Darins owns words and statements that he did cpr on Devon with in seconds of Darlie first dialing 911. I heard her on that 911 call 15 seconds into it telling Darin to hurry. I read in his police statement where he described in detail how he immediately came down and ran right over to Devon and began cpr on him. Darin had described this cpr over and over in great detail in many interviews. It was repulsive to see this father take such delight in describing the final seconds of his sons life and brag about what he did in detail regarding the cpr attempt.

With in seconds of the 911 call Darin announced to Darlie Devon was dead, she is heard on the 911 call screaming this out.

This brings us now almost 4 minutes later and here is officer Waddell describing Darin doing this horrific cpr on Devon almost 4 minutes later?

I listened on to Waddells interview in complete shock. Waddell sounded confused as to the order in which things happened, but he did say when Darin returned he immediately ran back to Devon, not Damon who was alive Devon. He then carried on to say he assumed Darin had left the house to go over and get the neighbor. By this time I was in complete shock. Was I actually hearing what I was hearing here?

I knew at that point I had to personally call officer Waddell myself. Everything this officer had said and described a long with Mr. Gorsuchs testimony was completely denied by Darin, even though the 911 call backed up Waddells version of the story.

To my surprise when I called Waddell he was open and honest and had no issues speaking freely to me about everything I asked him.

The first question I asked officer Waddell was why didn't he tell the jury about Darin leaving the home right after he arrived and not going to Karens to bring her back to help his family before the police and medics arrived?

Officer Waddell explained to me that he had told Greg Davis and Doug Mulder about Darin leaving the home right after he arrived. To his understanding the jury was told this information. I explained to him in detail that I researched everything and the jury was never told about Darin leaving the home at that time.

I then asked Waddell why he wasn't suspicious when Darin came back into the house with out having Karen or any help with him. He said there was so much going on at that time that didn't appear to important at the time.

Officer Waddell explained to me that he had no idea of the details of Darlies case. He had put in for a transfer before the murders and his transfer came through right after the murders so he wasn't involved in the investigation of her case. He wasn't aware of the details surrounding the case, he said that part was up to the investigators.

I asked him why he didn't speak up in court. He told me there is a process that has to be followed. When he is called to testify he has to answer only the questions asked of him. He doesn't have the right to just speak freely at will. That explains why neither Greg Davis or Doug Mulder brought up Darin leaving the home. They each had their own motives for protecting and covering for Darin.

Doug Mulder was hired originally to defend Darlie Kee and Darin regarding a gag order they had both breached. While he was representing them he told them that the court appointed lawyers were planning on implicating Darin in crime. I don't know this for a fact, but I am assuming they had uncovered the same evidence about Darin that I was uncovering. Though all the details are not known we do know Doug Mulder agreed to take on Darlie's case under the promise that he not implicate Darin in the crime. This would be the reason Doug Mulder never exposed this evidence against Darin.

As for Greg Davis, he knew if the jury learned that Darin had left that house right after Waddell arrived and didn't go for help when he could have, when it would have made the difference for Damon and Darlie he didn't. Greg Davis knew this would give reasonable doubt to that jury as to Darins true involvement in the crime. He knew this would effect his guilty verdict with out any doubt.

I then asked then asked Officer Waddell why he wasn't suspicious of Darin when he denied both Darlie and Damon help? Why wasn't he suspicious when Darin ran past his living son to do that second cpr on Devon.?

I was shocked to learn that officer Waddell had no idea Darin had done cpr on Devon before he had arrived. I had to actually prove to him that this actually happened.

I then asked him if he was aware that Darin had denied help to Darlie and Damon because he claimed he didn't know they were hurt until after he came back from Karens.

Officer Waddell told me, he did ask Darin to help Damon when he came back in but instead he ran back over to Devon and that is exactly where he was standing when the second responding officer arrived. Officer Walling described Darin as out of breath red faced as though he had been running.

I then brought up the 911 call. On the transcribed copy of the 911 call they claimed Darin made a couple of statements during the time he was gone from the home. I looked at those statements and knew immediately it wasn't Darin who had made those statements on the 911 call at that time. First of all one statement said get a rag and both Darin and Darlie claimed it was Darin who made that remark, but officer Waddell knew for a fact it was him who had said, besides that it made no sense that Darin would said that to Darlie or officer Waddell. Darlie was busy on the phone and talking to Waddell, and Waddell had no idea where to even get rags. Officer Waddell told me flat out, he told Darlie also to help Damon and she didn't. This is how the "Get a rag came about" proving once again Waddell did ask Darlie to help the boys. The second remark during this timeline when Darin was gone from the home is the comment "the phone is over there" There is no doubt Darin did not make that statement. Darlie was on the phone already, he had no reason to even make that comment and officer Waddell was using his shoulder radio to communicate with the other officers. There is over 90 seconds where Darin is not heard on that call at all. This is the exact time that officer Waddell says he assumed Darin went to karens for help.

There is absolutely no way in hell an investigation was done on Darin in any way. This would have been huge right here. This detail alone would have been a game changer for the verdict in Darlie's trial, that and the courts refusing to allow Doug Mulder to take her case under the assumption that he may have made the deal not to implicate Darin in the crime.

The court appointed lawyers tried to stop Doug Mulder from representing Darlie, but the judge chose to believe Doug Mulder. We know now after the trial is said and done that Doug Mulder did not implicate Darin in the crime. He did with hold crucial information that would have proven with out any doubt reasonable doubt to Darlie's guilt.

The chair that was tipped over outside the pathway where Darin exited the house right after officer Waddell arrived.

The jury was never told about Darin leaving the home right after officer Waddell arrived.  Officer Waddell believed when Darin left the house right after he came in he had gone to Karens for help, but he didn't.  He didn't go for help then

The truth about how the sock ended up in the alley.

I wanted to explain the ridiculous theory or story Greg Davis gave to the jury regarding how the sock ended up in the alley.

Greg Davis claims that Darlie first stabs Devon, then Damon, then for some unknown reason she decides to leave the boys alive in the home while she leaves the house to run the 75 yards down the alley to plant the sock. Mean while doctors claim there was nothing stopping either boy from screaming out, yet they were left alone in the home and Darin never a word.

This story is so far fetched it is laughable. What could that jury have been doing, or thinking while Davis was telling his many stories?

The sock is a very interesting piece of evidence. It wasn't 22 years ago, but everything has changed since we learned new information about that sock.

Officer Waddell arrived on the scene about four minutes after Darlie first dialed 911. He came in and describes the scene in detail. He first sees Damon who is alive and trying to crawl looking around the room, unlike the way Darin claims Damon condition was. Darin claimed right from the start Damon had no pulse and that being the reason he never gave him cpr, or any help for over 10 minutes.

Officer Waddell then describes Devon and he says Devon was obviously already gone. He then says he turns his attention to Darlie. He says she was bleeding holding a rag to her neck talking on the phone with 911.

One of the inconsistencies that has surrounded officer Waddells story is he asked Darlie to help the boys. Here is where things get very confusing.

Officer Waddell comes in and he says without saying a word to Darin he rushes past Damon and he rushes over to Devon and immediately begins cpr on. According to the non supporters they claim officer Waddell instructed Darin to give cpr or help to Devon, but this is absolutely not true.

Darin claims he was the one who was heard saying get a rag on that 911 call, but it wasn't Darin. Darin was over with Devon at this time. The person who transcribed the 911 call also claimed that it was Darin who said the phone is over there. They knew this wasn't Darin making those comments. The comment about the phone was made by someone at the 911 station. Darlie was on the phone with 911 he had no reason to even make that comment. Darin did go over to Devon and he did to cpr on Devon right after him and Waddell walked in. I would like to show on that 911 call where it proves Darin was absent from that 911 call when officer Waddell said he left the home.

The 911 call is crucial in proving what really happened before and after that 911 call. The courts claimed they fired and hired a new court reporter to fix the mistakes in the transcripts and on the transcribed copy of the 911 call, but it was obvious crucial mistakes were not cleared up.

Here is a copy of the 911 proving what really happened.

Time ID Conversation/Sounds




00:00:00 911 Operator #1 ...Rowlett 911...what is your emergency..
00:01:19 Darlie Routier ...somebody came here...they broke in...

IT HAS BECOME ANNOYING TO HERE THE NON SUPPORTERS CLAIM DARLIE GOES FROM SAYING IT WAS ONE INTRUDER TO MORE THAN ONE INTRUDER. DARLIE IS USING THE WORD THEY AS SINGULAR NOT PLURAL AS MORE THAN ONE. THAT IS ABVIOUS AND CLEAR THROUGHOUT THE 911 CALL.


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...

THE HATERS THEN SLANDERED HER FOR SAYING THEY STABBED ME AND MY BOYS, PUTTING HERSELF FIRST. REALLY? THEY KNEW THROUGHOUT THAT ENTIRE 5 MINUTES AND 44 SECONDS DARLIE ONLY TALKED ABOUT HER BOYS, SHE DIDNT CRY OR COMPLAIN ABOUT HER OWN PAIN OR INJURIES, SHE TALKED THE ENTIRE TIME ABOUT HER 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 Operator #1 ...hang on ...hang on... hang on

THE SECOND THIS CALL STARTED DARLIE WAS IN THE KITCHEN GETTING THE PNONE, ONCE SHE DIALED THE OPERATOR AND HAD HER ON THE PHONE SHE WAS ON HER WAY BACK TO THE HALLWAY WHERE THE BOYS WERE. DARIN IS NOT HEARD AT ALL ON THIS TAPE UNTIL 3O SECONDS INTO THE CALL.


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

RIGHT HERE, THIS IS EXACTLY WHERE DARLIE FIRST ENCOUNTERS DARIN AFTER SHE COMES BACK FROM THE KITCHEN WITH THE PHONE. IT IS CLEAR DARIN IS NOT ALREADY WITH DEVON DOING CPR ON HIM BEFORE SHE DIALED 911 AS HE CLAIMS. THIS ALSO BACKS UP THE ORIGINAL STORY DARIN GAVE TO THE POLICE WHEN HE SAID HE WAS FIRST WOKEN BY HER SCREAMING ON THE PHONE WITH 911.


00:16:01 911 Operator #1 ...stand by for medical emergency
00:18:11 Darlie Routier ...ma'am...
00:18:19 911 Operator #1 ...hang on ma'am...
00:21:26 Darlie Routier ...ma'am...
00:23:00 911 Operator #1 ...unknown medical emergency... 5801 Eagle Drive...
00:24:00 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...
00:26:24 Darlie Routier ...ma'am...



DARLIE IS OBVIOUSLY BEGGING THIS WOMAN TO FOCUS AND GET HELP TO HER BOYS, DARIN STILL ISNT HEARD ON THIS 911 CALL AT THIS POINT.

00:27:12 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am... I'm trying to get an ambulance to you... hang on a minute...
00:28:20 RADIO ...(siren)...
00:29:13 Darlie Routier ...oh my God ...my babies are dying...
00:30:12 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME DARIN IS HEARD ON THE 911 TAPE. DARIN CLAIMED HE WAS ALREADY THERE BEFORE DARLIE DIALED 911 BUT IT IS CLEAR HE WASNT. THIS MEANS DARIN DID NOT HAVE AN ALIBI IN DARLIE.


00:31:09 911 Operator #1 ...what's going on ma'am...
00:32:13 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible) ...oh my God...
00:33:49 RADIO ...(tone - signal broadcast)...
00:34:01 Background Voice ...(unintelligible)...


DARLIE SAYS WITH IN SECONDS OF DARIN BEING WITH DEVON HE ANNOUNCES TO HER DEVON IS DEAD. THIS IS WHERE DARIN HAS TOLD DARLIE DEVON IS DEAD


00:35:20 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible) thought he was dead ...oh my God...


THEY DIDNT CORRECT THE MISTAKES IN THAT 911 CALL. DARLIE DOES NOT SAY THIS. SHE IS SCREAMING OUT AFTER DARIN TOLD HER DEVON WAS DEAD. SHE IS SAYING ON THE TAPE OH MY GOD DEVON IS DEAD OH NO DEVON.


00:39:08 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...

THE FIRST THING OUT OF DARINS MOUTH BESIDES ANNOUNCING DEVON DEAD IS HE IS TALKING ABOUT THE INTRUDER. HE ISNT ASKING FOR HELP, HE ISNT ASKING WHERE THE INTRUDER WENT, HE IS ASKING DARLIE WHO DID IT. ALREADY KNOWING SHE DIDNT KNOW BECAUSE SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN ACCUSING HIM STRAIGHT AWAY.


00:39:29 Darlie Routier ...I don't even know (unintelligible)...

DARLIE IS DESPERATELY TRYING TO GET HELP FOR THE BOYS AND DARIN IS HARASSING HER ABOUT THE INTRUDER.


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)...


A SECOND TIME DARIN ASKS, HE HAS ALREADY BEEN TOLD SHE DIDNT KNOW BUT THAT DOES NOT STOP DARIN FROM MAKING SURE THIS 911 OPERATOR IS CONVINCED THERE WAS AN INTRUDER.


00:44:04 911 Operator #1 ...Eagle Drive ...Box 238 ...cross street Linda Vista and Willowbrook ...attention 901 medial emergency...
00:49:28 Darlie Routier ...who was breathing...
00:40:10 Darin Routier ...(unintelligible)...
00:51:15 Darlie Routier ...(unintelligible) are they still laying there (unintelligible)...

DARLIE IS NOT SAYING IS HE STILL LAYING THERE. SO MANY INCONSISTENT REMARKS BEING MADE DURING THE TRASCRIPTION OF THIS CALL, ALL THOSE MISTAKES JUST HAPPEN TO BE IN THE FAVOR OF THE PROSECUTION.


00:51:19 911 Operator #1 ...may be possible stabbing ...5801 Eagle Drive ...Box 238 ...cross street Linda Vista and Willowbrook...
00:55:06 Darlie Routier ...oh my God ...what do we do...

DARLIE TOLD THIS OPERATOR HER ONE SON HAS DIED AND THE OTHER IS DYING AND STILL THIS WOMAN IS SO INTERESTED IN WHAT THE OFFICERS ARE DOING SHE DOESNT OFFER DARLIE ANY ASSISTANCE ON HOW TO HELP EITHER OF HER BOYS.


00:57:17 911 Operator #1 ...time out 2:32...

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...

WE DONT NEED TO HEAR WHAT DARIN IS HARPING ABOUT HERE BECAUSE DARLIES RESPONSE SAYS IT ALL. DARIN IS DESPERATELY HARPING ON AND ON ABOUT THAT INTRUDER, WHEN HE CLAIMED HE WAS TRYING TO SAVE HIS SON DEVON BY DOING THIS HORRIFIC CPR ON HIM. DARIN GAVE UP ON DEVON WITH IN SECONDS AFTER GETTING TO HIM.



01:12:21 Darin Routier ...oh my God ...(unintelligible) ...came in here...
01:14:10 911 Operator #1 ...ma'am ...I need you to calm down and talk to me...
01:14:24 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...

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

THERE IS NO QUESTION HERE THAT DARIN IS DESPERATELY BRINGING UP THAT INTRUDER OVER AND OVER AGAIN TO MAKE SURE THIS 911 OPERATOR KNOWS AND IS CONVINCED THIS WAS AN INTRUDER.


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...

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

JUST BECAUSE YOU CANT HEAR EVERYTHING THAT IS BEING SAID ON THE CALL DOES NOT MEAN DARIN ISNT TALKING IN THE BACK GROUND, IT IS OBVIOUS HE IS STILL HARPING ABOUT THE INTRUDER. HE DOESNT ASK FOR HELP FOR HIS BOYS, HE DOESNT EVEN GO LOOKING FOR THE INTRUDER EVEN AFTER HE TELLS DARLIE 39 SECONDS INTO THE CALL DEVON IS DEAD?


01:44:25 RADIO ...(unintelligible)...

01:52:19 Darlie Routier ...I'm talking to my babies ...they're dying...
01:55:03 911 Operator #1 ...what is going on...

HOW MANY TIMES DOES THIS WOMAN HAVE TO BE TOLD HER BOYS ARE DEAD AND DYING AND STILL ALMOST TWO MINUTES INTO THIS CALL SHE IS ASKING DARLIE WHAT IS GOING ON? WHAT MORE DOES THIS WOMAN NEED TO KNOW. THERE WAS A STABBING HER AND HER BOYS AND ONE IS DEAD AND THE OTHER IS DYING SO WHY THE HELL ISNT SHE OFFERING DARLIE ASSISTANCE ON HOW TO DO CPR TO HELP THESE BOYS? SHE WAS COMPLETELY USELESS THROUGHOUT THIS ENTIRE 911 CALL. HER ONLY CONCERN WAS WHAT WAS GOING ON WITH THE OFFICERS.


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...
02:02:20 Darlie Routier ...some man ...came in ...stabbed my babies ...stabbed me ...I woke up ...I was fighting ...he ran out through the garage ...threw the knife down ...my babies are dying ...they're dead ...oh my God...

RIGHT FROM THE START DARLIE SAYS HE, BUT SHE USES THEY BUT ONLY IN THE SINGULAR SENSE NOT PLURAL AS SHE WAS ACCUSED OF SO MANY TIMES.


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

02:31:14 911 Operator #1 ...who's there with you...
02:32:15 Darlie Routier ...Karen ...(unintelligible)...

DARIN DID NOT SCREAM OUT FOR KAREN, SHE CLEARLY SCREAMED OUT FOR DARIN. IT WAS DARINS NAME WE HEARD ON THAT 911 TAPE. FOR WHAT EVER REASON DARIN HAD LEFT THE AREA AND DARLIE WAS CALLING OUT FOR HIM.


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...

THIS STATEMENT WAS CRUCIAL IN PROVING MY POINT. DARLIE DIDNT SAY DARIN HAS BEEN DOWN HERE HELPING ME, SHE SPECIFICALLY SAYS DARIN JUST CAME DOWN TO HELP ME


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

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

I BELIEVE AT THIS POINT DARLIE KNOWS DARIN KNOWS WHAT IS GOING ON. DARLIE WAS IN THE KITCHEN WHEN DARIN SUDDENLY APPEARED SO SHE HAS NO IDEA IF DARIN HAD BEEN IN HIS ROOM DURING THE ATTACK OR NOT


03:14:26 911 Operator #1 ...(sounds of typing on computer keyboard)...

03:29:03 Darlie Routier ...oh God ...Devon no ...oh my God...
03:30:27 SOUND ...(dog barking)...

THIS DOG BARKING RIGHT HERE WAS CRUCIAL IN PROVING DARIN WENT UP STAIRS AT THIS TIME, HE DID NOT GO UPSTAIRS AS POLICE WERE COMING IN THE FRONT DOOR AS HE CLAIMED IN HIS POLICE STATEMENT. DARIN LOCKED THAT DOG UP EARLIER AND WHEN HE HEARD WADDEL PULL UP TO THE HOUSE HE WENT UPSTAIRS AND OPENED THE DOOR FOR A SECOND TO WHERE HE HAD LOCKED THE DOG UP EARLIER.


03:35:02 911 Operator #1 ...is your name Darlie...
03:36:11 Darlie Routier ...yes...
03:36:26 911 Operator #1 ...this is her...

03:44:05 911 Operator #1 ...you don't know who did this...



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

OFFICER WADDELL ALWAYS STATED THAT HE DID SEE DARLIE WHEN HE CAME IN AND HE DID ASK HER TO HELP THE BOYS. THIS IS WADDELL NOT DARIN ASKING DARLIE TO GET A RAG.

THIS IS THE EXACT TIME WHEN WADDELL SAID DARIN FLED THE HOME. FIRST HE RAN OVER AND BEGAN CPR ON DEVON BUT THE SECOND HE TURNED HIS BACK DARIN DISAPPEARED FROM THE HOME. HE ASSUMED HE HAD GONE TO KARENS, BUT HE DIDNT.


03:46:11 Darlie Routier ...they killed our babies...
03:48:03 Police Officer ...lay down ...ok ...just sit down ...(unintelligible)

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

THEY TRIED TO INJECT DARIN INTO THE 911 CALL CLAIMING HE MADE THIS STATEMENT. DARIN DIDNT MAKE THIS STATEMENT. THIS WAS MADE BY SOMEONE WHO WAS AT THE 911 STATION, THIS SAME COMMENT WAS MADE EARLIER IN THE CALL AND THAT STATEMENT ALSO CAME FROM THE 911 STATION. DARIN ISNT EVEN IN THE HOME AT THIS TIME.

Lets have a closer look at what really happened just before and right after the murders.

According to the doctors there was a window of about 5 minutes and no more where the crime was committed before Darlie dialed 911.

According to the Rowlett police officers Darin originally told them he was asleep upstairs when he suddenly heard Darlie screaming on the phone with 911. I did call Officers Nabors to confirm this version of Darin's story.


Darin later realized that he didn't actually have an alibi to say he was in his room at the time. Darin mentioned how he had gone back into the house to investigate the evidence. He also admitted that he over heard the officers speaking. Darin knew almost immediately that the police suspected that someone in the home had murdered the boys. At that time I don't think Darin imagined or believed that they would or could have suspected Darlie considering the extent of her injuries. That is when Darin first claimed he didn't know Darlie was even injured until after he got back from Karens, making her injuries appear less severe than they really were.

If you go to Darin's police report it was obvious he was desperate to make sure the police never knew any truth about the status of their relationship, or any of his criminal activity or cheating. Somehow Darin was able to convince Darlie that he was in his room.

I never believed it was in Darlie's nature to ever accuse anyone let alone Darin of a horrible crime like this unless she knew for absolute certain it wasn't him. I have always believed that Darlie did suspect Darin at first and she honestly thought and believed there would be an honest and proper investigation into her case. We know now after the fact this was the farthest thing from the truth.

In Darin's police statement he did just two days after the murders it was obvious he was already trying to change the timeline as to when he appeared on the scene.

Darin was very specific to make the comment that he was already there with Devon doing cpr when he turned to look at Darlie, claiming she was calling 911. This is a far fetch from the original story he gave to the police right after they arrived. As time went on Darin began to gradually put himself on the scene earlier and earlier. At one point Darin did an interview and he was claiming he was woken by the sound of glass breaking, her screaming and then he ran downstairs as fast as he could.

We are talking about a difference of minutes here. The only way Darin could give himself an alibi with Darlie is if he put her at the foot of the stairs before she dialed 911 proving he came out of his room.

Darin didn't realize this but on the 911 call Darlie is clearly heard telling Darin to hurry 15 seconds into the call, proving that his original story to the police was the correct one. This also proving that Darlie could not have been his alibi because the 911 call proved for a fact that Darlie was completely out of his view when he finally made an appearance.

There were other clues that should have been investigated by police, but right from the start Darin was over looked. Darin said when he first appeared Damon was already laying down in between the hall and the living room, so if he appeared before she dialed 911 he wouldn't have seen Damon laying down, he would have seen him standing in the hallway as Darlie described and how the blood evidence showed.



Within 20 minutes after detective Cron arrived on the scene he made the comment that it was a staged scene and the crime was done by someone in the home, not ne

We have to take a close look at who took control of that scene immediately after the detectives got there?

It was detective Patterson. What possible reason would any detective have to make sure the main suspect in a murder case is never investigated?

There could be many reasons, maybe he was friends with the suspect, but there is no evidence Patterson even knew Darin let alone was friends with him.

Maybe he just got lazy and decided this was one case where he just refused to take any notes during his investigation and he didn't want that negligence to come to light? That also seems a little far fetched.

What if this detective suspected someone he knew or was close to may be linked or implicated in the crime? Well that just happen to be a very viable clue and something that should be seriously looked at.


Darin and detective Patterson son knew each other. They were both involved in drugs, Darin used and sometimes sold cocaine and apparently detective Patterson son did also.

I would like to answer some of these questions only because I am convinced now that Darin did this crime. This is my opinion based on my own research. To this

After researching all the facts and evidence I am convinced with out any doubt there was never an intruder in the home. Although I do believe that there was a conspiracy here regarding some of the officers and detectives involved and also with the courts, I do not believe detective Patterson's son had anything to do with the slaughter of those boys or the attack on Darlie.

There was absolutely no sign of an aggressive attack and slaughter. This crime was planned and calculated while they slept

I would like to post some information from a friend of mine name Sandra. She has been actively researching this case for many years herself and sent me some in



It gets weirder. Chad Patterson was friendly with the secretary of Darlie’s lawyer, Douglas Mulder, and while the case was progressing, he [Chad] called her regularly for “inside information.”


This could explain how so many pretrial defense motions were so effectively thwarted by the prosecution. Paralegals, secretaries and other employees of law firms have access to sensitive information and can do irreparable damage if so inclined – and Mulder’s secretary was obviously so inclined.


This activity was discovered by Darlie’s mother while she was in Mulder’s office and once confirmed, Mulder fired the woman, but by that time, the damage had been done.


In addition to having an untrustworthy employee who was providing confidential information to a police officer’s son, Mulder had an apparent conflict of interest because he had an arrangement with Darin Routier and other family members not to pursue any defense that could implicate Darin.


Mulder also allegedly prevented the completion of forensic examinations by key experts for the defense.


A. According to Doug Mulder he claims he didn't call in the experts because he was cutting down on costs. Those experts were already paid 4000 dollars for their work. They also later stated that they could have debunked the prosecutions forensic evidence.

Web sites that proclaim Darlie Routier’s innocence list a significant number of issues and facts that have come to light since the trial that, if true, would appear to provide enough evidence for a new trial.


In addition to Douglas Mulder’s secretary and Officer Patterson’s failure to investigate substantive leads; pertinent information, for whatever reason, was withheld from the jury.


A. Detective Patterson knew almost from the start that this crime was not done by an intruder. That doesn't change the fact that he had more than enough reasons to make sure Darin was not implicated in the crime. He knew his son was involved in drugs, he knew he knew Darin. I believe Darin was not implicated or investigated by the police or detectives for fear of any implication towards detective Patterson's son. I do not believe there was an intruder after I researched the evidence, but I did find mounds of evidence to prove that Darin was never investigated and crucail information proving his guilt was with held by both the defense and the prosecution.

Detective Patterson did not take Darin into custody, he was never drug tested even after he found cocaine in Darin's room. He was never charged with any offence, even though many criminal offenses were committed by Darin even at his own admission.


For example, the jury did not hear about bloody fingerprints found inside the house and on the garage door – fingerprints that did not belong to Darlie, Darin, the children, police officers, or anyone else with access to the Routier home.


A. The last results from the DNA testing were posted for a brief time, but then removed from the internet. There was a finger print Darin could not be excluded from. There was DNA found on the black cap in the utility room that Darin could not be excluded from. The police failed to take into evidence the other pieces of clothing that were laying beside the black cap.


This contradicts trial testimony that no fingerprints were found outside the home. Who left the bloody, unidentified fingerprint on a living room table?


A. We know for a fact that Darin had lied in his police report about lifting the table up off of Devon when he did that first cpr attempt on him. The police also knew for a fact that the table had never fallen over on top of Devon, yet Darin was still not investigated and was never considered a suspect because they claimed his story checked out.

In the court transcripts during the questioning between Darin and Doug Mulder, Mulder caught Darin lying once again about the table falling on Devon and the flowers hitting the floor. Instead of Greg Davis stopping Doug Mulder from coaching Darin into changing his testimony Doug Mulder continued on trying to coach Darin into chaning his testimony because he knew the table did not fall completely over. He knew through the police investigation the flowers did not hit the floor as Darin claimed.

Darin made up this story about the table falling on top of Devon because he needed an excuse to explain why he ran past his living son Damon to go over to Devon. He needed an excuse as to how he knew what was going on before Darlie had ever told him.



Who left the bloody fingerprint on the garage door? And while on the subject of blood, whose blood was on Darlie’s nightshirt and how did it get there?

A. Blood from all three, Darlie, Damon and Devon was found on that nightshirt, the problem with that piece of evidence was how it was handled. It was cut off her, it thrown to the floor, bagged wet, and wasnt taken into protective custody until after it was picked up at the firehall later that day. Doug Mulder didnt even attempt to have that thrown out


Whose blood was on Darin Routier’s jeans?


A. There was the jeans that were found hidden in the utiltiy room in between the boys jeans. Those belong to Darin and they had both boys blood on them. Darlie was confronted about how the jeans got there, but I found no record of Darin ever being questioned. They were not part of the evidence shown to the jury. Apparently the jeans were lost at some point.


And what about that bloody sock discovered 75 yards from the house? Whose was it and how did it get there?

A. Darin was confronted about the sock in the alley and did admitt it was his. The story and theory Greg Davis gave about that sock was just plain ridiculous. I personally spoke to Darlie's lawyer several times offering informaiton and asked both him and Darlie Kee to test that sock. I believed Darin lost that sock in the alley because it was in the pant leg of the jeans Darin switched into while waiting in the utilty room for Darlie to leave the kitchen so he could get back to the stairs without her seeing. I suspected there might have been fibers on the sock that proved it had been drug to that location.

Like I said ealier Darin did leave that home right after Waddell first arrived, both Greg Davis and Doug Mulder were aware of this and they with held that information from the jury. Doug Mulder couldnt implicate Darin and Greg Davis knew it would help Darlies case.




Unexplained, unidentified blood wasn’t the only thing left to the imagination. A pubic hair found in the living room was never identified. Whose was it?

A. To my understanding that pubic hair found in the living room was Darin's. Apparently it was found on her nightshirt. I found this very suspicious for the simple fact that Darlie had not slept with Darin for several days prior to the murders. I am sure she didnt wear her night shirt for entire week before the murders.




Then there was the debris on the knife recovered in the kitchen. Was this the result of sloppy police work?


A. This fact is true. There was all kinds of confusion as to the fibers on that knife. According to some the order in which certain items were tested with the print dust could have caused transfer and contamination. This was something the forensic experts for the defence could have resolved, but Doug Mulder didnt bother to call them. He only spent a short time with them before the trial and never asked any questions as to what they had for evidence. Why would they pay for forensic experts and not call them to help Darlie out. Those experts found evidence against Darin and if Doug Mulder brought anything to that trial that implicated Darin that would have breached his deal he made when he promised not to implicate Darin in the crime.

Or did the debris get on the knife when someone used it to cut the screen – the screen which investigators insisted was cut from the inside, but was later proven in court to have been cut from the outside?

There were allegations the police did not protect the evidence collected, which rendered it questionable.

A. There was over whelming evidence and proof of contamination. Not only was evidence moved by investigators and police, it was misplaced and lost. It appeared a lot of evidence implicating Darin in the crime was lost.


During the trial, investigators invoked their Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination during cross-examination, preventing a rebuttal of certain aspects of their testimony by the defense. What had these investigators done that could be considered incriminating?

A. This was definately true. They took the fifth when asked about the illegal taping at the funeral.

When paramedics arrived at the scene, they said Darin Routier was outside, but Darin was inside trying to save his children. Was there a man outside? And if it wasn’t Darin, who was it?


A. I have no idea where this rumor came from? I am assuming it came from either Darin or Darlie Kee, because i read the testimony of the medics and when they came in Darin was in the living room just standing there, then he suddenly merged towards them as though he was trying to block them from helping the boys. There was medics who arrived later that did see Darin outside. That was when officer Waddell told Darin to leave the house to get him off the crime scene. Darin took this and completely twisted it around to try and make liars out of everyone. Darin was definately in the living room when the first medics entered. At one point Darlie said when Walling and Waddell went into the kitchen Darin got up and ran towards the front door. It wasnt known at that time what he did next, but Waddell did not tell Darin at 2:40am to go and get Karen. Darin used Karen as a means to get back into that house.

Darin lied when he said in his police statement that he pushed past the police to get back into the house. Waddell was the first officer to be assigned to guard the front door and he didnt start doing that until after he saw Karen enter the front door. He asked her who she was and what she was doing, proving once again Darin lied when he said Waddell sent him to karens to get help. Karen herself said, she had no idea why Darin even asked her to come over to help when help was obviously there. Darin was in full control of that crime scene right from the get go.

This is what is so suspicious about detective Patterson. Apparently his son did drive a dark or black car that resembled the car that Darin claimed was stalking his house. That car drove by while Patterson was at the scene. He had to have seen this car and maybe at that time he did believe his son could have been involved.

Like I said before, the first call Darin made was to his sister in law Dana, she arrived at the scene right after the murders. Darlie kee was caught lying about details concerning who had told her about the murders. Darin called Dana to have her call Barbara Jovell to have her come to the house right away to file a report about the black car. What we didnt know during the trial, but know now is Darin and Jovell set up that black car to make it appear he was stalking the home. Jovell gave conflicting stories when giving her admissions that her and Darin were the ones who set up the black car. So it isnt known for sure if it was actually Pattersons son who drove by, or if it was a another friend of Jovells. All we know is there is over whelming evidence to prove that detective Patterson went out of his way to make sure Darin was not implicated in the crime.





Then there were Darlie’s injuries, which police decided were self-inflicted. The surgeon who operated on Darlie said the cut to her neck came within 2mm of the carotid artery.

A. When I learned about Patterson racing to the hospital to put the bug in the hospital staffs ear that Darlie's wounds could have been inflicted I was shocked. There was no possible way any of those doctors could have made any personal assesment of her injuries before Patterson went there to make those remarks. Not only that Patterson never drug tested Darin even though he knew they found cocaine in his room. Any experienced detective would have known first hand all the side effects of cocaine. Exteme moods swings, extreme anger, high sex drive. They knew right from the start Darlie was sleepieck.ng on the sofa, that should have been their first clue there was issues in the marriage. They drug tested Darlie, but they never drug tested the person who had the cocaine in his room? How is that even possible.


The necklace she was wearing was damaged during the attack and it likely prevented the knife’s going deeper into the flesh. However, the jury was not apprised of the seriousness of her wounds.

A. This could not have been more true. It was obvious by the damage to that necklace that Darlie was not standing at the sink when the that knife struck her neck. Had the defense experts been called to testify they could have explained to the jury how it would have been impossible for the knife to have come into contact with the wound considering its length. The chain sat too low on Darlies neck to have interfered with the cutting motion. Not only that, Greg Davis claimed there was no blood on the sofa where Darlie slept. The evidence proved there was, but the only one there to defend those facts was Mulder and he obviously was no expert. He may have been called a high profile lawyer at one time, but he was a complete joke in this case.


The jury was not shown photographs of Darlie’s cuts and bruises taken at the hospital the night of the murders and at least one juror later admitted he would never have voted to convict if he had seen the photos.

A. No body ever tried to explain how Darlie could have inflicted the wounds to the back of her hands? There were so many injuries to her that were not self inflicted but there was nobody there to explain this to the jury. Even after Doug Mulder proved to the jury that they had a mock trial and the hospital staff obviously lied, the jury still didn't clue into what was really going on.



There are claims the testimony by the hospital nurses was coached and rehearsed in mock trials by the prosecution. If the nurses were simply reciting what they recalled, why did they require coaching?

Even the incriminating graveyard birthday party film viewed by the jury has been called into question. While the film does, indeed, show Darlie dancing around the graves of her sons, the jury did not see the previous scenes in which Darlie sobbed uncontrollably over her children’s graves along with her husband. Why was the film edited?

A. For years after the trial the Darlie haters claimed there was never any footage of her crying at the funeral. They claimed the only pics of Darlie were the ones of her laughing and playing with the silly string.




As for the prosecution’s contention that Darlie, a “pampered and materialistic woman,” killed her sons because of financial difficulties, the couple had only $10,000 in life insurance on the children and their funerals cost $14,000.

A. Why wasn't the jury told about the details regarding Darlies life insurance policy? Because once again it pointed to motive for Darin. If the jury had heard all the details regarding the policy Darin had on Darlie they may have looked at the case differently. Why would Darin have a 250,000 dollar life insurance policy on his wife when she didn't even work. Why did he add that accidental clause that would have paid him double if she would have died that night? Where was the defense for Darlie to show this jury all the evidence against Darin?



Why would Darlie kill two children for nothing, when she would have collected hundreds of thousands had she killed her husband? Additionally, why kill the older boys and not her third son Drake, who, as a baby, was much more of a burden?

A. None of these questions were answered because Darlie didn't have a lawyer defending her. Doug Mulder was there for one reason and one reason only that was to make sure Darin was never implicated in this crime. Anything that would have pointed to Darin committing this crime was completely with held from the jury. Everything.



But things didn’t end with the jury verdict and death sentence. Following the trial, it was discovered that Darin Routier had planned an insurance scam in which someone would break into the house and steal Darlie’s jewelry. Apparently, he was about to execute his plan when the murders occurred, which begs the question: Was the break-in the night of June 6, 1996, simply an insurance scam gone awry?

A. Everything changed in that home that night for all of them. The jury was lied to as to why Darlie was actually sleeping on the sofa. Had they known about Darin and his past things would have been completely different for Darlie. Everything that was hidden from the jury was to cover and protect Darin. Doug Mulder, Darin and Darlie Kee were all warned by the court appointed lawyers if the jury didn't hear the evidence against Darin then she was going to death row. Nobody cared, not even her own family.





Because there are so many questions that were not answered during her trial, even some who once considered Darlie Routier guilty are now having second thoughts and many believe the woman was railroaded by the police and prosecution.

A. As I have found and realized majority of the groups are still being controlled by either Darlie Kee, Darin, Darins family, or Bryan st john the public is being robbed of hearing the truth about this case. If you watch and listen to all Bryans videos he makes sure to always tell only the details of the case that make Darlie look guilty. He has domineered this case for years making sure people are blinded by his info that it is almost impossible to get past him to find any truth in this case. All personal hatred towards this girl.



Over the years, the prosecution has reportedly refused to provide access to any evidence in its custody in the Routier case.

A. How is it possible that those bloody jeans of Darin's found in the utility room just happen to disappear? How was Greg Davis allowed to get away with all of this?

Now that they know Greg Davis knew Darin left that house right after Waddell got there and didn't expose it, how is he not being investigated? Why isn't Patterson being investigated. They allowed everyone to slander officer Waddell for years, knowing he had been telling the truth the whole time. We have Darlie Kee to thank for costing Darlie her biggest reasonable doubt. Was that also intentional on her part?


Why is it not readily available to all interested parties? What does the prosecution have to hide?

A. I am wondering how or why the prosecution was able to hide this?


For example, Darlie remembers a rape examination after arriving at the hospital. But for years, the State insisted there was no rape exam. Long after the trial and many appeals, the district attorney was finally required to produce a previously unknown evidence list generated at one time and on that list there is a rape kit!

A. Kind of hard to produce something you don't have, but they had no problems claiming the test was negative


Why was a rape kit included on the DA’s evidence list if there was no such kit?

A. Though it was a well known fact the rape kit they took for Darlie was lost along with over 2500 other kits. There were recently found and they are now going through them. I was very curious about that kit because they claimed it was negative for rape, but if they swabbed around her private area and found any of Darin's DNA, they would have known he was the one who assaulted her on the sofa. They had not been sleeping together for some time so he would have had an impossible time explaining his DNA anywhere near her private area.


And what happened to it?

A. Hopefully it is in the hands of the right people and they are properly testing it now.



The blood map matched Darlie's version of the story

This blood map confirms Darlie was telling the truth about her movements.  Greg Davis twisted her words to make the evidence fit his version of the story.

And here we are again, THAT OH SO FAMOUS SECOND CPR DARIN DID ON DEVON

How is it possible for anyone anymore in this day and age to claim Darin did not do cpr on Devon a second time after the first responding officer arrived?

Darin could not be excluded from the DNA on the sweatband of that black cap.

Darlie described the intruder as wearing a black cap and black t shirt, so why didn't the police take all the items that were laying next to the black cap?

The rape kit taken on Darlie was lost along with 2500 other rape kits. The kit has since been found so are they going to do DNA testing on all the swabs to see

The hospital lost over 2500 rape kits. Though they claimed her rape kit was negative I have always asked about any other swabs in that kit of any surrounding area. Darlie and Darin were not sleeping together, so why weren't they curious to see if he could be excluded from any of those swabs in that rape kit?

How could any jury have believed these wounds were self inflicted? Impossible

Detective Patterson raced to the hospital before any staff could make their own assessment of the wounds.  He planted in the minds of staff that the wounds could have been or were self inflicted.  How wrong is that?

That second cpr Darin did on Devon was and will always be my smoking gun in proving who killed Devon and Damon Routier.

Lets start with Darin's version, or versions of the story, then compare it to what the evidence proves.

Darin claims he had a warm loving caring relationship. No money issues and no problems in the marriage.

Evidence uncovered by the prosecution proved the exact opposite. Darin was broke, had done insurance scams and got paid out on them and he also cheated on Darlie. Darlie asked Darin for a separation that night, but this never came up until after the trial. It wasn't just Darlie and Darin who kept silent about Darin, so did Darlie Kee, her boyfriend and Dana. Dana was staying in the home that entire week leading up to the murders. She had to know they were at the verge of breaking up.

Then we have Darin's original story he first told the police.

Darin originally told the police that he was woken by Darlie screaming on the phone with 911, he says he grabs his glasses and runs down the stairs. This is also consistent with what we hear on the 911 tape. Darin is not heard for the first 30 seconds on the 911 call. but within 15 seconds after Darlie returns from the kitchen already talking with 911 Darin is suddenly there and she is clearly heard telling Darin to hurry. From that time on Darin makes a point of making sure that Darlie and the operator are convinced that this attack was done by an intruder. Over and over he is heard harping about this so called intruder.

Darin then claims as the police are coming in the front door he runs upstairs, but not before telling and instructing them to help his boys. The police knew right then none of this was true. None of this was heard on that 911 tape.

What the 911 call proved was Darin did come down at 15 seconds into that call, he did apparently do cpr on Devon and within 39 seconds of being with Devon he announces to Darlie Devon is dead. We also hear her scream out Devon no, Devon is dead, yet that operator pays no attention to this and offers Darlie no assistance on how to help Damon start breathing again. Darlie herself said Darin told her Devon was dead long before the first responding officer ever arrived.

We know for a fact that Darin did go back upstairs only he didn't do it when he claimed. He went back up soon as he heard Waddell pull up to the house. We know this again because of the 911 call. Darin locked that dog up earlier and when he went upstairs he made the mistake of opening the door to the room where he locked that dog up. We know this because at 3 minutes and 30 seconds we hear the dog barking for the first time. That dog was free to roam anywhere he wanted upstairs, but on this night he was locked up, and I believe this was to make sure his barking never woke Darlie or the boys.

So Darin then claims when he went upstairs it was to his room where he sees Drake crying but claims to see his wallet laying in the middle of the floor, making it appear an intruder had been in the room. He then claims he flees the room (leaving poor little 7 month old Drake to fend off this intruder all on his own) and runs down those stairs and right over to Karens.

We know for a fact this entire story was a complete lie. Darin had no idea when he made up this story that there was a witness who saw everything. Mr. Gorsuch.

Mr. Gorsuch worked late that night. He didn't even arrive home until just before 2am. He stood outside and watched the stars for a bit before retiring to bed. He goes upstairs and goes to sleep. He wakes up soon after by a sound, not loud enough to wake him but loud enough to hear. I am assuming this was Waddell coming down the road with his siren on.

He then says he is woken again but really woken and immediately sits up. Darin didn't know this but Mr. Gorsuch was able to sit up in bed and see everything that was going on at the Routier home.

He described things exactly the same way officer Waddell did. Darin, not some intruder comes running from behind the fountain and he is screaming someone stabbed my wife and kids. Waddell starts towards the house to stop Darin just as both Waddell and Gorsuch claim and they speak for a second and both immediately turn around and go into the house together, just as they both testified too.

Only Darin claims it wasn't him who Waddell spoke to. Darin claims he ran over to Karens at this time, but we know for a fact he didn't. Both Waddell and Mr. Gorsuch testified Darin didn't go over to karens until after 2:40 am. This was also confirmed by Karen herself and the medics on the scene.

This is where things get tricky and confusing. Darin doesn't realize at this point not only Waddell can testify he was lying about the time line but many other witnesses can too.

Darin and Waddell come in and Waddell describes the scene. He describes Devon as already been passed, but more importantly he describes Damon as alive and breathing. He says Damon is moving looking around the room as though he is scared. Wouldn't you think he would have shown some sign of relief rather than fear at the sight of the officer?


Officer Waddell then says Darin immediately rushes past Damon and he goes right over to Devon. I thought maybe I got this wrong, but after contacting Waddell personally I was not wrong.

I thought to myself why would Darin go right past his living son to go right back to the son who he knew for a fact died over three minutes earlier. He had already given up on Devon to rush past Darlie and Damon to go back upstairs before the police entered the house.

At this point I was stunned. I knew I read in Darin's statement where he claimed the reason he didn't help Damon was because he had no pulse, so why was it that Damon was alive and breathing not only when Waddell came in but even after the medics arrived several minutes later.

I knew at this point there was no possible way the detectives could have missed this? By this point Darin had come up with so many excuses as to why he never helped either living victim. To actually claim that the reason he didn't help Damon was because he had no pulse was just way beyond belief. By this point it was obvious there was some sort of a conspiracy going on here.

So Darin at this point is claiming that he was at karens but on the other hand he was also claiming that he didn't go over to karens until after Damon was taken from the home? So how does that work? How could he be at karens at two separate times? Once before Damon was removed and once after?

The simple truth is Darin did in fact leave that home before Damon was removed. |He left that house at the exact time officer Waddel said he left and assumed had gone to Karens, but didn't.

I believe officer Waddell was excluded from this investigation for a very specific purpose and that was to make sure the truth about Darin was never exposed.


I can possibly see a few details been confused or misunderstood, but not a complete police report full of inconsistencies and out right lies. I looked at the whole picture here. Who were the detectives who were involved in the case right from the start? Forch and Patterson and Nabors. Who had the most to lose by Darin being implicated in the crime. Patterson.


After Darin admitted to so many lies during and after the murders are they finally going to investigate him?

The police claimed the only reason Darin was not investigated and was not a suspect was because they claimed his story appeared to check out. DARIN'S STORY NEVER CHECKED OUT 22 YEARS AGO AND IT HAS CONTINUED TO CHANGE OVER AND OVER IN THE PAST 22 YEARS. So why do they refuse to investigate him?

Officer Waddell was a key point in this case. He was the first responder and he was able to see more than anyone else.

I do believe the version of the story officer Waddell gave was the true and accurate on.

Waddell's interview.

Officer Waddell did an interview for death row stories. I was very confused about that interview but after talking to him personally I realized what had really happened.

Officer Waddell pulled up at about 2:33am, as he pulled up Darin came running from the front of the house screaming, someone stabbed my wife and kids. Waddell stopped him to ask what was going on. Waddell said he was going for help, but Waddell told Darin to turn around and go back in.

According to Gorsuch they both walked back into the house together. Waddell described that scene what he saw when he came in, Devon was already gone, Damon was struggling to breath and Darlie was on the phone bleeding from the neck.

Darin walked in and immediately flew past Damon to go back over to Devon. He knew himself Devon was gone. He knew this because he did cpr on Devon before Waddell arrived, he stopped that cpr and he ran upstairs before the police even came to the door. He ran right back down and right out the front door to meet Waddell.

Darin came in and ran right over to Devon, he knew for a fact he was gone and he knew for a fact that Damon was fighting for his life bleeding out. Darin even bragged how blood didn't bother him.

After a few seconds Darin announced it was too late for Devon again. While Waddell was tending to Darlie Darin got up and disappeared from the home. Waddell looked back and thought he had gone to karens but he didn't. When he returned he instructed Darin to help the other boy, meaning Damon but Darin again refused to go near Damon. Darin lied about why he never helped Damon or Darlie.

Considering the jury was not shown all the evidence does Darlie deserve a new trial?

Since all the evidence against Darin didnt come up until after the trial, should the police launch a full investigation into Darin

    I wanted to make this comment on my articles because SClemmons has not only accused me of stealing info from his article but he called me out as a liar. The only liar here is SClemmons.

    Why the hell aren't people asking him why he left out the part about Darin going back into that house and doing cpr on Devon in front of officer Waddell?

    He has accused other authors of cherry picking and lying? He just happen to leave out one of the most important details in this case that would have and should have granted Darlie a new trial.

    I am going to expose SClemmons for what he is.

    Sclemmons. You make me sick. You have the balls to mock me and other authors making fun of my education and spelling errors? You call me out as a liar? YOU SCLEMMONS ARE A FRAUD AND A LIAR. I BET YOU DONT POST THIS COMMENT. You knew when you wrote about that 911 call you intentionally left out the part about Darin going back into that house and doing that cpr on Devon. You knew he already announced that boy dead over three minutes earlier. You said nothing of him going back into that house with Waddell and nothing about the cpr and you said nothing about Darin sneaking out right after he did that cpr on Devon. You are the liar not us. I don't need to use other profiles to call you out for what you are. Darlie is fighting for her life and you sit there and lie throughout your article. You have no shame.

    Very true Kim. To this day I do not understand why Darin was not investigated. When I look back on all the red flags it should have been the most obvious thing to do. I hope the DA's office is paying attention to what is going on with this case. I have no idea how it was even possible that she was arrested let alone found guilty. If a jury had known about Darin and that one detail about him leaving the home right after officer Waddell got there this never would have happened to that girl. The prosecution needs to be held accountable for what they have done to her. Doug Mulder has already paid his price, but the least he could have done was tell the truth before he passed away.

    Jo Douglas and Miss Sandra, as always, excellent job. I really do feel that more people are coming around to the "DARIN THEORY". If some of the non's would open their minds just a little and bring in their common sense, they would be able to see that something just isn't kosher with Darin. Alot of somethings.

    Maybe Darin has finally gotton what he has wanted all along. Darlie, if not murdered, then on death row. The boys are no longer a bother. Drake is grown and he has his beloved ex-girlfriend back. (I say they're married but Darin says no) His motive may just be as simple as that.

    Sarilda kept custody of Little Drake. But damn it all, he couldn't collect the life insurance on Darlie because she didnt have the decency to die.

    But he has his ex back, got his business back on track so he could get Cindy a boob job. He didn't have to raise Drake. Life is good again. He thinks his Darlie brainwash is still holding up,,,but secretly, he's worried because he knew a long time ago that Darlie's not dick-whipped by him anymore. Its a time bomb waiting to explode.
