The Keepers Dead Ends?
If you’re finished with the new Netflix docu-series The Keepers, like most people, you still have plenty of questions. The series ended with many leads and investigations left unresolved. While our synopsis has yet to be posted, other watchers are putting their questions out there. One such watcher is Sarah D. Bunting from Previously.tv.
In her piece “Does The Keepers Need To Drive Down Every Dead End?” she covers many of the unanswered questions asking: “When is it chasing a lead, and when is it chasing their tails?” We’ve posted a couple of the significant ones below.
From the article:
“Why haven’t police talked to Gemma and Abbie?
I have a feeling they will now, as it’s an open case, and the optics of not collaborating with people who have collected this much information — especially in case with alleged police involvement and destruction of evidence at its center — aren’t great. I can see where the detectives assigned to it might take an unofficial “we’re pretty sure we know who did it, but it’s too hard to prove so many years later” posture; officially, they should probably consider debriefing these two if only to look like they want it solved.”
Agreed, a cold case – with so many years since the events and little evidence still left – can be a daunting task. Much of the story presented by Gemma Hoskins and Abbie Schaub is recounts from other people, pieced together decades after the fact. Their evidence might not stand the burden of proof necessary in a criminal case. But it’s possible that chasing down all the accounts may lead to some concrete evidence, helping to form a criminal case against the suspects. We’ll keep you posted on any further developments as far as the police investigation.
“What even with that vagina story?
I…what? If they really were trying to break him, I could see the cops using ugly crime-scene or autopsy photos. Certainly it’s SOP in scripted crime shows. I can even see the cops wrapping something they saidwas her vagina in newspaper, to rattle him. But her actual vagina? They’re just going to ask to ME to remove her labia and borrow them for a sec? That’s insane, and the police asked about it here are gentler than you’d expect in their “…WTF? Yeah, no” responses, but what strikes me is that Koob bothers to mention it when he must know it makes him sound insane. This isn’t a stupid person; he must see that it sounds bazoo and that certainly nobody’s going to confirm that it happened even if some variation on it occurred.”
That was definitely a “WTF?!?!” moment for us when we were watching Episode 6. The claim was never addressed fully after the brief story from Gerry Koob, former friend and lover of the slain nun. We were sure this crazy story would be explained. But while questioned in some of the police interviews, it was never given the attention we think it deserved. We’re still scratching our heads even after the 2nd time through the series.
These are just a couple of the questions that are still haunting us after The Keepers. There are many more! Hopefully as new information comes out, with the new attention the case is garnering after the series, we’ll start to get some answers. We’ll keep posting as long as there are answers to be found.
