Jessie Davis case: Analysis of accused

You knew it was a matter of time before the press started covering things from Bobby Cutts' point of view. (image credit) There is an article this morning from the Associated Press and in the title is a "complex personal life." These include statements from his family:
Cutts' stepmother, Barbara Cutts, on Monday called her stepson a generous man who was good with kids and coached youth soccer, basketball and football. She said she and Cutts' father last saw him Saturday at his house in Plain Township outside North Canton, where he appeared drained and exhausted.

"It's very hard to accept," said Barbara Cutts, 46, a nurse's aide. "A lot of people are looking at him like a bad person, but he's not, he really isn't."
The next part of the article outlines the other relationships and custody cases that this guy is going through. But, the story eventually revolves back to Blake, the 2 year old child of Jessie and Cutts.
It was Blake who provided investigators searching for Davis their first clues earlier this month, saying: "Mommy was crying. Mommy broke the table. Mommy's in rug." Porter found the boy home alone on June 15, with Davis missing, furniture toppled in the bedroom and a pool of bleach on the floor.

Family members have told Blake that his mother is in heaven, [Patricia] Porter [Jessie's mother] said. "He has an old cell phone and he calls her and talks to her," she said. Porter said Monday she's not sure who Cutts is anymore.
Probably the best line of the whole thing comes near the end of the article:
Cutts played football, wearing No. 9, at GlenOak High School, a suburban school whose most famous graduate is goth rocker Marilyn Manson.
You know, I'm from around here, and I've been to GlenOak HS, but I never knew Marilyn Manson went there. How about these other people? What kind of connection do you think the press is trying to make here? You be the judge....

Well, whatever the case, Marilyn Manson and Christian rockers graduating from the same school proves that the "evil" connection that's implied is meaningless, because the two are stereotypically polar opposites. They just threw him in because it's a weird fact, and he's famous.
