gosh sakes! Just trying to slide a neatly folded waistcoat
under the pillow should have gotten the person attempting
to do so covered with blood...

And yet, having had a not-by-natural-means cause of death to one of my own
close family members, I can tell you that initial reactions to trauma like
vary, and hysteria is not necessarily the first reaction....
- Ops, yes that is right, the coat went under the pillow
that was under Andrew's head. Of couse, that would
lessen the blood that Lizzie would have come in
contact with. Lizzie also might have had her sleeves
pushed up and if she got blood on her hands, she would
have washed them. It has been commented on that her
hands were very clean.

Bowen was a bit of a sticky wicket, eh?
That furtive business with the torn up note bugs me. Why wasn't he forced
to give a better explanation for destroying possible evidence and usurping
the police investigation?
He's a cameo conspirator. Knowing his sedentary neighbor well, Bowen is
instantly skeptical about the "sick note". He asks both Lizzie and Alice
Russell about it, but doesn't accept their idea that Abby burned it in the
stove. He goes looking and finds it.
Whether he saw a connection to the crime (property transfer?) or just a
strange coincidence, his predisposition to believe in Lizzie's innocence
caused him to destroy evidence.
If I could find out what the note really said...
I'd blow this case wide open........................
P.S. I think Pete Rose killed them.
