    And there is a McDonalds located INSIDE the Elyria, Ohio, Walmart Supercenter.

    I would bet that this is the one where he stopped. Elyria Walmart Supercenter. Small enough town, close to the interstate, has a McDonalds inside. Open 24/7...

    And close (within 40 miles) to the Pickerel Creek Wildlife Preserve, which is very very sparsely populated.

    THIS MAP shows all of this.

    Apparently, he never finished his studies and received his degree. Under graduated, he has N/A.

    This is a summary of the time line for the search warrants:

    Truck: Warrant issued 30 April 2.49 PM, executed 5 May 8.35 PM (but the evidence only gathered the following day at ~4.53 PM)
    Car: Warrant issued 5 May 11.05 AM, executed 5 May 1.36 PM
    Home: Warrant issued 5 May 6.25 PM, executed 5 May 6.57 PM
    Person: Warrant issued 5 May 6.12 PM, executed 5 May 7.05 PM

    So, they searched the car first, then him and his home, then the truck last, even though the warrant for that was issued 5 days before.

    Whatever evidence they gathered from the truck couldn't have been used as probable cause for the home search because it hadn't been done yet.

    They don't mention anything about taking other evidence such as tread imprints, dirt, insects and other things which could tie the vehicle directly to the scene. Why is that? Those are things which they stated as being possibly relevant and some of which are in the list of things they were looking for.

    Other than two sets of duct/packing tape, all of the items taken from the house were some sort of recording device (voice recorders, computers, data sticks, video tapes). Oh, and a two year pass to Busch Gardens (how could that be relevant?)

    The things you might expect to be taken in a potential abduction/murder investigation (such as clothing, cell phones, telephone messaging systems, potential weapons etc) were not taken.

    I can't help thinking that this isn't a complete search. I would guess that they will have to do additional ones.

    Going to college doesnt mean you are going to be any more sensible than anyone else.

    Do we know for sure exactly who it belongs to?

    That is misleading. The Dodge evidence was gathered on May 6.

    Round trip could be made in 22 hours and 58 minutes.

    Just playing around with a timeline from the 25th through the 26th April:

    1) Calls kids at 8. Talks five minutes or so.
    2) Has truck loaded, heads out at 8:15.
    3) Stops at Walmart in Elyria, Ohio, at 3:15AM, buys his murder kit and a Powerade.
    4) Buys gas (pays at pump) and then back on the road at 3:50, arrives at Pickerel Creek Wildlife Area at 4:40. Spends 20 minutes prepping grave.
    5) Back on Road 5:00AM, arrives in Colon on Driftwood and parks behind the treeline in the field across from the Mccombs' driveway at 7:30AM. Gets out, and sneaks to behind the shed where he can't be seen by anyone from the house or the road.

    Intermission--plans to wait, watch, eventually she'll come out... His luck...mom is already gone. Dad's there, though... Hmmm.... watching and ....

    Lo and behold, his target walks out of the house ALONE at 7:45 AM.

    7:45 AM, Doug grabs Venus from behind, and she's kicking and screaming as he drags her to the truck. He binds her, and duct tapes her mouth. Then he kills her in the bed of the truck--maybe he stabs her--then wraps her in the tarp, and binds the tarp with the nylon rope. Accomplishes all of this in fifteen minutes. He's working on adrenaline and can't believe that he's actually already got his target in the bed of the truck! He covers her tarped body with junk in the back of the truck so that it's not obvious he's carrying a corpse. Then...

    8:00AM - Back on the road, with his target in the bed. No stops, not now!

    10:00AM - Arrives at Pickerel Creek Wildlife Area, dumps Venus, quickly covers her, and then puts limbs and other debris on top of the grave.

    10:30AM - back on the road. Adrenaline has sapped his energy, so he needs some food and caffeine... He saw a Mickey D's in Elyria, so...

    11:15AM - cruises through Elyria McDonald's drive through, and also grabs some gas at the pay at the pump station that he visited hours ago.

    11:45 AM - back on the highway, headed for home.

    8:30 PM - arrives back in Newport, but can't leave the truck at the bldg because he's got to give it a good going over. He leaves them a couple blocks away, and then walks to his apartment to see if anything's up yet, with intention of going back to check the vehicle. Oh $hit! He's got calls on his answering machine from MSP! Goes down, gets in the Mercury, rides back over to the truck, checks it quickly, and in the meantime transferring blood from the truck bed to the side of the Mercury without noticing. He throws the item in the back of the truck with blood on it into the back floorboard of the Mercury, and he heads to the restaurant dumpster at one of his delivery spots, and tosses the bloody evidence. Comes back to the truck, parks the mercury, and then wipes down the truck as quickly as he can. Walks back to his apartment.

    10:00 PM - "Why no, officer, I haven't seen her. Oh, that's awful. I hope you find her. No, I've been around here all day. You can ask my apartment manager. I haven't even left the building. I must have missed your call and knock... I was in the shower. Sorry about that."

    Anyway, just to show it can be done. Locations are just guesses and are based on nothing factual. Just how it might have happened.

    The dates in the list were done hastily and only represent the dates displayed on the warrants, as in when they were granted.

    I was rushing out a transcript as quickly as possible. I've also misspelled floorboard ten times...oops.

    Thank You for doing it. It's the thought that counts.

    Awww... thanks. I was trying to be helpful. I'll go back and fix it so that anyone who is unable to read the warrants for themselves and make their own list won't complain.

    Thanks. I wonder too if LE wasn't playing a bit of cat and mouse by not letting on that they knew where his truck was all along while at the same time making it clear to him he was being watched. He knew he'd have to bring the truck back to his apartment, but how to make sure all potential evidence was gone?

    ETA: I think it was on forensic files... not sure... but anywho there was this guy who had a "solid" alibi that proved he was nowhere near the crime scene. Problem is, his alibi was a little too neat, KWIM? He had receipts for places and activities that people just don't normally keep, he was able to account for virtually every second of that day. It raised LE's suspicions and they begun to dig deeper and found that he WAS responsible. I wonder if DS had done something like that too, having an alibi that was just too good to be true IOW.

    I want to know which state he will be tried in, Michigan no dp or Virginia with dp.
    Michigan most likely, unless they can prove she was killed in VA. I wonder how long WalMart keeps their videos. That worries me a bit.

    This is yet another reason why NG should have kept her mouth shut and allowed LE to release this information when they were ready. Now you have family members tossing hearsay into the mix. His defense attorney must be loving this...
