black shoe actually rises above the baseboard.
are comparative pictures of baseboards from the DeFeo home: foyer
(first floor), Allison's room (second floor), and Dawn's room
illustrate further, here is a picture from Dawn's room that shows
shoes in close proximity to a baseboard.
all three editions of The Night The DeFeos Died, there
is no reference as to where this "bloody shoe picture"
was taken. I have heard claims that it was taken in a closet in
Dawn's room. Dawn's room had five closets -- one traditional closet
and four doors that led into the attic. Here is a picture of the
closet from the second floor TV room.
the high baseboards are consistent on all three floors, as well
as into the closets, I believe it would be safe to say that the
"bloody shoe picture" could not have come from the traditional
closet in Dawn's room. The only possibility left is that it came
from one of the four "attic closets" -- one of these
was blocked by a table, so it's actually down to three.
is a picture of one of the "attic closets" from Ronnie's
me, it seems unlikely that any of these "attic closets"
would have been carpeted, and finished with baseboards. And even
if they were, why wouldn't the same type (or at least size) baseboard
have been used to match the baseboards throughout the house?
"bloody shoe picture" depicts blood on the shoes, as
well as the surrounding carpeting. If the picture truly did come
from a closet in Dawn's room, why wasn't there blood found leading
to the closet?
wouldn't the police have taken the shoes for evidence? They took
the ashtray contents from the front porch, they took a glass from
the master bedroom, they took bowls and spoons from the master
bedroom -- but they left bloody shoes found in a closet?
