So, what really happend there!
I think nobody answered the main question: what really happened there!
I think it is obvious that Buck killed Grahams, but how? And why Buck would cut the body with the chain saw, heat it with a torch, put it into the box and put the box into the lagoon.
Where is Mac’s body, I’m sure he wouldn’t let kill himself without a fight, how could Jennifer stay away from all this, and if she didn’t how could she pass the lie detector test?
Buck is extremely lazy (like almost all criminals), there are a lot of examples in the book to prove it.
Try to imagine cutting a body with a chain saw, it would be a bloody pulp everywhere, blood, pieces of meat and bones, then trying to burn it with a torch, doesn’t make any sense, but requires a lot of effort.
Buck could just push the bodies into the lagoon and sharks would take care of them. There are several episodes in the book which shows that it was extremely dangerous even step into the water for several seconds. Even if the sharks left parts of the bodies on the bottom of the lagoon, and it was found, it would work for Buck’s theory that Grahams were killed by the sharks.
I think only psycho would do a thing like that, but Buck wasn’t a psycho after all. He has a lot of criminal records but none of them shows any crazy or sadistic stuff.
Also I think that couple of Buck’s remarks deserve some attention, he mentioned to two different people that he made Graham’s walk on plank.
What is more interesting is that when he heard the way Muff’s bones were found he said that it wasn’t the way it happened.
It is not like I believe what he said, but it would make more sense either just say nothing or say that it was a complete set up, instead of that he kind of admitted that he did it but denies the way he did it.
I think Jennifer knew what happened there or at least figure it out, but she really didn’t have any choice there, she couldn’t fight Buck, he would just kill her.
What is really remarkable is that she passed the lie detector test (it was the main reason Bugliousy agreed to defend her). Imagine if Jennifer heard the cries of the victims, then saw the body cut by the chain saw, is it really possible to pass the lie detector?
I would really like know the truth, I think Buck has nothing to lose now, I don’t think he will go back to prison if he tells the real truth.
