I’ve just watched the latest interview with Carol Todd and the latest addition, her best friend Vicky.
OK. First thing that is odd is the existence of Vicky. I’m not sure who she is, but I will find out.
I’ve only had about 10 minutes to think, but, to me, this has BIZARRE written all over it.
Maybe you will be as suspicious as me. http://www.npo.nl/eenvandaag/POMS_S_AVRO_096654
Where to begin? I’m still looking for that glint of sorrow from Carol Todd but really, no matter how hard I look, I can’t find it. There is just something quite frighteningly devoid of emotion about her looks.
First thing to note: Carol says something about the link appearing on Amanda’s Facebook. I can’t work this out. We get very much the same story, Carol saying that she got a link to a porn site and it was a picture, blah blah blah. No mention of any other displays, of course – same old rigmarole. Carol talks of how she monitored Amanda (what a joke). Really, it’s just the old story reeled out again.
However, there is something worth noting. Towards the end, Carol mentions the last message sent to her by Amanda. This is when Carol loses control slightly. She moves from side to side when the interviewer asks her about it. To me, it’s a sign of some sort of panic. This is my take on it:
If we believe that Carol hasn’t read the message, that in itself is odd. Even if she didn’t want to read it, if it were me I would get someone else to read it. It could be crucial to understanding what happened. However (and I’ll have to check this because it’s all so crazy) I seem to think that Carol once said that she had seen the last message.
But beyond that, I think Carol is afraid to read it because it may be too accusatory. Any notes left behind tend to be of two kinds: ‘Sorry, it wasn’t your fault, I just couldn’t take any more’ or ‘I told you I would and it’s all your fault’.
Anyways. I might get back to that later.
As for Vicky? Interesting. To be honest, my immediate response is that she is a stooge. Carol must have known that Vicky was being interviewed, and I’m guessing that she would have arranged it. We get another view of the story – Vicky mentions how Amanda dressed in skimpier clothes and seemed to chat too much to strangers. We also get – from Carol and Vicky – references to ADHD, such as the trampoline incident. However, I would suggest that this doesn’t come from ADHD, but that it comes from good old partnership of Mary Jane and Jack Daniels.
The current story seems to like to steer towards saying that Aydin Coban is everyone, right from December 2010 onwards. This is, of course, total rubbish. The media wants him to be the imaginary first person who tricked Amanda into flashing; they want him to be the person who published the photo; they want him to be Austin Collins, Tyler Boo all rolled in to one. He’s none of these.
