The existence of "Third Variance" is shown in the figure below. The value of the vertical axis (mean of expected log-likelihood) is maximized when the value of the horizontal axis is around 4. This result indicates that the value of the denominator of the equation for calculating the estimate of variance should be roughly (n-4) instead of (n-1) (i.e., unbiased variance). If you carry out the R program, you will realized it easily.

Analytical derivaton of "Third variance" is shown in the paper:
