Red John is Virgil Minelli
"He is Man" is short for Minelli - Jared wrote it but didn't know how to spell Minelli's name...

"He is Mar" - the writing on the wall
What does this mean? Is it "He is Mar", "He is Man", is it an anagram of some sort?


"He is Mar" - the writing on the wall

Perhaps the victim was trying to write red john's real name, perhaps, Martin?
who is Red John
My longer post is in that thread, short one here:

It is simple. Red John is Kristina Frye, or rather, her alternate personality.

In the episode "Red John's Friends," the Director of the CBI coincidentally leaves "to visit (his) sister in Hawaii" just prior to Red John's murder of the ex-con who at least indirectly knew him. We also found out that Red John has access to the CBI Computer network and can manipulate his way through communications with Patrick and the others. My fiance and I were subsequently thinking that Red John might be the CBI Director. What will need eventually to be explained is who exactly was having "(his) feelings trifled with," the specific context involved and who Patrick himself might think Red John might be. Surely after five years--now six--of agonizing guilt, he remembers in great detail the specifics of the person he was conning and how that person might connect to Red John. Will no doubt be a great television ride...

Does it mean Red John is a male? Is it unfinished? Is it an anagram?

First of yourself a favor and GOOGLE Theory #9178 • By Effindudemar (on another site). Extraordinary===the best I have read. Just takes some time and you'll enjoy the read.

But then moving on, in the last scene from season six episode six (less than two minutes long)...who planted the bomb. Jane right, or did Sheriff Mac bring it in (or someone else) ? When Jane saw all three (GB, RS and Mac) with 3-dot tattoos, he said "you three over against that wall" and left Stiles and Haffner where they were originally seated (farther away from the others)...

Jane knows Stiles is dying and perhaps believes Haffner is Red John. The other three are going to be turned over to Lisbon (hopefully she can be trusted) to see they get their just due for ""corruption"" (The TT Group).

What if the bomb kills Stiles and Haffner...Jane sympathizes with Stiles and doesn't want to see him suffer the rest of his few living days. Jane just wants Haffner eliminated. Jane only despised Partridge more. Or was the bomb just a distraction to get someone(s) out of there (e.g. Stiles) ???

Taken in part from Theory #9178 • By Effindudemar, it seems that Stiles is the brains behind Red John and just maybe it is Haffner who is Red John. Could it be that Haffner may be just an executor and not Red John himself.

QUOTE from Effindudemar: "So there you have it! My (Effindudemar) guess is that Red John is a collaborative effort between Stiles and Haffner, and while I know this leaves out a lot of other really good information and leaves the motivations for killing Jane's family murky at best- it's the best I got! Here's to the next two episodes!"

If Partridge turns up NOT DEAD...there you go.#$%^&*(*&%$#@!~!$%^&*()_
