“Is The Yankees Blanket In The Bedroom?”

Some of you may or may not have seen this bodycam footage. The YouTuber speculating about “blood on the comforter” based on very fuzzy video isn’t helpful, and is [I believe] confirmation bias based on the scenario of the murder supposedly happening in the bed in the master bedroom.

The Yankee blanket question is more interesting. Was there one blanket or two? How many blankets in total did the kids have? Which blankets were missing? Which toys were missing? What did Watts dispose of at the dumpster on Black Mesa on his way home?

This bodycam footage also provides some of the best views of the downstairs television lounge, and the layout of the kids’ couches.

The 4 Bedrooms in Saratoga Trail [Crime Scene Photos]


#1 Main Bedroom

From the images below, taken on August 14th, on the first night after Shan’ann’s murder  it appears Watts didn’t sleep in the makeshift bed in the basement, but slept in the main bed upstairs, on the left hand side.

It’s also obvious that the entire bedding set was different to the one dumped in the trash, and by extension, the bed sheet that was still fluttering exposed in the field at CERVI 319 when these images were taken.

#2 Bella’s Bedroom

4-year-old Bella’s color co-ordinated bedroom, complete with blown up black and white photographs of her parents on the walls, looks like a hotel room.
