A question about the motive in the Esar Met case. Links and a summary are at the bottom.


The defense claimed that Esar Met was friendly with the child. The evidence supported that.
They supposed that maybe he had lost his temper at the child, perhaps killed her by hitting her too hard. This does not match the evidence obviously. The child had been beaten severely, most major organs had been damaged, the child's arm had been snapped so it was at an unusual angle and somebody had violated the body with an object, perhaps to simulate a sexual assault.

The prosecution suggested Met was a severe deviant who committed the crime for unusual motives having to do with sex.

So, the question is Did he accidentally kill the child, then commit other odd acts for some reason? Or did he kill the child deliberately, then get some pleasure from using an object to violate the body of the neighbor he had been friendly toward previously?

Which of these is most consistent with the confession he gave police?

Pages from police report showing that there were major problems with the interviews with the roommates

At first the police were looking for a violent child rapist, since that is what the evidence seemed to indicate. Immediately after finding the body, they interviewed the 4 roommates and another person who were in the apartment with the body. Those 5 people led the police to believe that Esar Met had abducted raped and murdered the child. The police then tracked down Met and arrested him.

Immediately there was concern that some of the evidence was problematic. The strongest piece of evidence was his confession, but a detective eventually got the 'confession' translated and realized that the confession was not valid. The detective disavowed any responsibility for what turned out to be quite serious flaws in the confession, which still has not been translated publicly...

Despite claims of "dna evidence", there is no dna evidence that is consistent with Met being guilty, and which is consistent with the crime.
a) The victim had skin cells from a number of people, including Met, under her fingernails. There were only dead skin cells, and there was dna from enough people that the lab was given only samples from some classmates, family and the accused, all of which had some skincell dna present. Met was friendly with the neighbor child and used to horse around with her, giving her piggy back rides... something that offended the roommates since Met is a Rohingya and the roommates were hostile to Rohingyas.
b) Blood stains supposedly found on Met's jacket are not consistent with other evidence, not consistent with the crime, not consistent with how blood is deposited, etc. The blood stains are consistent with having been deliberately deposited. The technician found 6 stains on the jacket, four of which he said appeared to be related, four tiny stains of a liquid in a linear pattern. These 4 stains were the victims blood, he testified. A person should watch the part of the confession where the fbi agent asked Met about blood stains.
c) Dna from an unidentified male was found mixed with the victim's dna on one of the walls. The person whose dna that was has not been identified.
d) The same technician who 'found' the blood on the jacket also admitted at the trial that there had been red liquid on the carpet of the area where the roommates lived, an area Esar Met did not go since the roommates were not friendly with him. The technician did not test the liquid, he claimed, because there were betel nut spitting jars nearby and he thought it was betelnut juice. He did collect a sample though and it tested positive for blood, a fact he decided not to share with anybody... until years later... at the trial.

Liveleak has removed the interviews with the roommates and other material that came from the police report. That material is available to anybody who wants to see an astonishing example of police incompetence. Just ask.
