PostSubject: At what point is it appropriate to add a new POI to the list?   Thu Feb 21, 2013 7:59 pm


I have been mulling over this question for a while. I have a POI, but have been reluctant to mention him until I obtained some additional information. I became aware of this person after coming across some of his writings.
I have not been able to get a photograph of this person yet, which seems to be fairly important.
In this case, I feel the bulk of my suspicion lies on some critical aspects of the case evidence, which I have never seen mentioned on any of the boards. The supporting evidence consists of other consistent details and facts.
I don't want to be foolish and jump the gun, but I also don't want to sit on it forever. I have been actively reading all of the proposed POI's on the forum and I am very impressed with how well some of them fit the bill. I am open minded and realize that my POI may not be Z.


So when do you think it wise to introduce a new POI?

I feel we should express ourselves carefully on our POIs. But this is the only way the case will ever be solved.
So I'm sure we are all open ears, please feel free and go slowly if you must. Do you have handwriting samples?

Go ahead and post what made you suspicous. Post writing samples and other evidence. If the man is still alive do not use his name, but give us his info.

Well, I have a very small sample of handwriting.





I also know he uses the three stroke K. This example was done in very thick pen, so not the best example.



I am not going to say I think the handwriting makes a good case for my POI. This sample dates to the 1980's.
My own handwriting has changed significantly in the last 15 years.

I will try to demonstrate why I feel this person should still be considered a possible POI in the following posts. I haven't attempted to pull all this information together in a concise statement, so it may take me a few posts.

I don't intend to dangle the carrot.

Rather than a few separate letters, can you post a couple sentences so we can get a better idea of the writing as a hole instead of picking a few letters?

QOC,

The fact that you're asking speaks well of your intent, IMHO. I think a number of people here understand the difficulty of trying to present a person of interest without revealing too much personal information, especially when that person is still living. As morf has stated, if 20 of us have different P.O.I.s, at least 19 of us are dead wrong and I think it is a positive to acknowledge you might be one of the 19 (or 20) no matter how strongly you feel about your P.O.I.

I would say that since this is a private (invite-only) board, I think it is fair to share a little more freely than somewhere that can possibly be read by family members etc. It's difficult but not impossible to share identifying similarites (like your handwriting) or circumstantial connections that you feel may connect to the case without revealing a name on the board. There are a number of really good researchers who might be able to track more personal details that can potentially rule out a possible P.O.I. I tend to think that is better done by PM but that's just my personal preference. FWIW, I agree with morf that it's really hard to give an opinion based on individual letter composition. The spacing etc. is really important to look at so you might want to post a full sample if that's possible.

That's my two cents anyway. Best of luck!

QOC, Entropy is correct, you can also share stuff via PM if you need help researching your POI. There are some very good researchers here that might help you

If the person is alive, as stated this is a private board, you can post basic info like year of birth, handwriting samples, picture with eyes covered and the basic facts that caused you to suspect this person. More detailed info like full name, date of birth, jobs, full pictures, etc., you can share in a PM with Morf, myself and any others who indicate interest.
