And that, friend, is how you create a real-life horror movie town.
Feel free to spice it up with clowns if you like.
Pauli's Favorite Theory:
Why didn't the closest neigbors hear the murders? Because they were too busy committing them.
According to some sources, the people next door -- Martin and Marilyn Smartt, and their friend John Boubede -- were on good terms with the Sharps, to the point where Boubede wanted to know Sue, uh, a little better. On what I'm going to just up and call "that fateful night," Boubede and Martin -- both Vietnam vets and presumably drunk as shit -- visited Cabin 28 with shenanigans in mind. The situation escalated, rage ensued, and the rest is history. How do we know this? Because Marilyn Smartt has heavily insinuated that her husband and Boubede were involved, and also one of the kids who survived the cabin talked about the encounter. (Yeah, according to this theory, at least one of the kids was totally awake and witnessed the entire ordeal. Sorry.) Is there any truth to it? Hard to say. I certainly hope not, because that would mean the most obvious suspects for a bloodiest quadruple homicide in the history of the county managed to dodge everything law enforcement could throw at them while still scraping brain matter from under their nails. Still, whatever else this theory may have produced, at least it left us with a police sketch of the possible killers:
Now hold on just a second. That's it. The case is closed. Clearly, John Lennon faked his death and hit the West Coast with Ringo in tow to prove the Stones aren't the "tough" ones after all.
