Over the last couple of days there has been a lot of media reports about John Carter, the fiance of missing Katelyn Markham, not being truthful about whether he took a lie detector test or not.
John said he took one, shortly after Katelyn’s disappearance and then later, on the Nancy Grace show, he said he had not, but would be willing to.
Many web detectives that have been following this story very closely, knew immediately that there was a discrepancy, as they had heard him say he had taken one, too.
But, I had also heard that the test he had taken early on was a voice stress test and not a wire polygraph test that most people are the most familiar with. When I heard that people thought he was lying about the test, I knew it was because they may have not know about the voice stress test.
I believe that it was a miscommunication. I don’t believe that John was being deceptive. I think early on he took the voice test and referred to it as a polygraph and somewhere between then and the Nancy Grace show he found out there was a difference.
Then today, John’s mother Karyn Winkler said, “John has referred to this test as both a polygraph test and a lie detector test. The detective working on Katelyn’s case said that often, people confuse the two with the terminology, and she is not surprised when someone she is working with confuses them or when someone in the community confuses them,” said Karyn.
This statement pretty much confirms my earlier beliefs, but I am sure some now will think that it is a coverup. What do you think?
