Amy: It was wood. She’s showing me that — it was wood.
I concede… with relevant information.
Me: It one of Patsy’s paintbrushes. Yeah. And so, if they, if they though it was going to be enough to, uh… distract —
Amy makes a noise that stops me, covers her face.
Amy: (breathes in hard) Okay, so um… it was done that way so, there were no… fingerprints? Um. Already knowing that, that enough had been done to where… there was no turning back. They couldn’t — she couldn’t — rush her [JonBenet] to the hospital. They had to finish. And so, that was done so that…. there wasn’t any kind of finger… imprint. And also, so… she’s [Patsy] very, uh, crass. Um. She’s also saying that could’ve easily been done by putting a pillow over her head. Suffocating her. But they wanted to… appear… a… um.
Me: Deviant sort of thing?
Amy: Yep. Deviant, and ritualistic in nature, like a serial killer would do. Yep. Yeah.
We’re both clearly uncomfortable at this point of the session. Neither of us have ever wanted to leave a session early but this time, we don’t look happy. I have a fist against my face, Amy is wiping hard against her cheek.
For a moment, we’re both silent.
Me: Okay. I’ve still got mixed feelings on her [Patsy.] To be so… matter of fact on all this. I know she’s had some time to think about it, but it’s still pretty…
Amy: I have mixed feelings about her, too. She shows me to two sides… since connecting with her, she has a feeling that has remorse, and I feel a side that takes responsibility… and then a feeling that I feel has a relief. And then she is, other, um… another side. Comes out. And… um… I’m gonna go ahead and say she’s working on a lot of stuff. She’s not a highly-evolved spirit.
