The FBI made it up. There is a similar sort of controversy about these silly polygraphs in the JonBenet Ramsey case when the lousy detectives and the FBI falsely tried to imply that the Ramseys were reluctant to take a polygraph. This is from the deposition of the bad cop Steve Thomas about the matter with Ramsey lawyer Lin Wood:

18 Q. I mean when I was out there
19 saying, you know, I didn't think the FBI is
20 objective because they've been involved in
21 this case to a significant amount, whether
22 you agree or not with my objectivity
23 conclusion, I was right about the fact that
24 the FBI had been significantly involved in
25 the case, wasn't I?


1 A. For the record I don't agree with
2 the objectivity conclusion but, yeah, they
3 were significantly involved in the case.
4 Q. It seems like from what you're
5 telling me that they were of the mind that
6 you were, that Patsy Ramsey they thought was
7 involved in the death of her daughter?
8 A. That certainly seemed to be my
9 impression.
10 Q. So whether that was an objective
11 decision by then I certainly was right to
12 have some concerns about whether or not they
13 had formed such a conclusion before I
14 submitted John or Patsy to the FBI
15 examination, wasn't I?
16 A. Well, twofold. One, I don't think
17 they would have -- I don't think there was
18 anything inappropriate with their polygraph
19 unit or that they would have conspired in any
20 way with their polygraphers.
21 Q. I also comment to you the ruse
22 interview that was attempted on Richard Jewell
23 by the FBI might be enlightening about FBI
24 tactics, legal and illegal. Do you agree
25 that you all investigated the hell out of
