I am publishing here some of the great photo captures by Anne Berg, with analysis by her, Cinderella, and myself, from our email discussions over the years. (Just realized some of this is duplicative of Doors of Deception, Part 3, but it bears repeating!)
We start with the photo we call “Fab Four Running”:
The vehicles are too big for this to be real. I think these people are not even running: just posing with a knee upraised, although the woman on the left has a fright wig on (or hair fixed with Superglue).
More of the scene below. I for one cannot match any of the vehicles behind Fab Four to those in the parking lot.
The Fab woman with light brown hair shows up in this picture, to which Jim Fetzer has given the apt name “Lounging at the Massacre,” although she has different jeans on.
Here she is again, coming back for more photos after running away (and putting on a jacket):
Cinderella and I believe the woman in all these photos is Amy Brackett-Taylor, who was a teacher at the school. Here’s a side-by-side comparison of the images:
Anne believes the stricken woman in the middle is someone else. Nevertheless, the other two photos indicate the same woman ran frantically away and then came back to stand around. There’s another photo of Ms. Taylor here–a screenshot is below:
The little girl in the dirty T-shirt from Fab Four Running appears in these pictures, in the same clothes:
We have not identified either the man or the girl.
Adults still lounging in this one:
The cop way in the back, with his back turned, appears to be the same as in Fab Four Running. He did not even work for Connecticut State Police at the time. We’re pretty sure he is Timothy Barry, who in 2001 was commanding officer of the Connecticut State Police, but retired in April 2004:
So they brought him back to help stage-manage this event.
The heavyset woman in the blue jacket watching the (second) line-up is Lisa Terifay. What is she doing at this crime scene? Looks like she is taking photographs. She poses with her kids, here–whom we don’t see in either conga line, but maybe they are blocked.
The kids, on their own, made it to prime time with looks of horror:
These two (Gillian and Carlee Soto) are mourning their dead sister, Victoria.
