Hardly sounds like "solid" or "true" to me.
What was the date of the search warrant for the truck? TIA!

I could swear I've been reading in news articles and LE documents that the truck is Doug's. "estranged husband's truck". Maybe I'm thinking of another case. I'm following several.
Whose truck is it? Or does Venus have another estranged husband? Or?
"I would rather die standing than live on my knees": French editor and cartoonist Stephane Charbonnier.
I think it is important to determine that from a source not directly involved with the case. If they don't, depending on how the whole alibi thing works out, you can see that becoming a contentious issue if this thing goes to trial.
I have followed this case since the first day it was in the news, started the thread on it. Now suddenly I feel like I do not know the first thing that is going on with it
From May 7 article:
And on May 11:Risko said Venus Stewart’s estranged husband Douglas H. Stewart, of Newport News, VA, remains the sole “person of interest in the case.”
According to Risko, Douglas Stewart’s alibi that he was in Virginia at the time of the abduction “checks out so far.”
Risko said Douglas Stewart has retained an attorney and is “not cooperating” with investigators at this time.
The Newport News Police Department on Wednesday seized a Mercury sedan and a Dodge Ram owned by Douglas Stewart based on a Michigan search warrant. Risko said Michigan State Police lab technicians flew to Virginia and were checking the vehicles for evidence.
Police initially said that Douglas Stewart's alibi checked out, but now that's being looked at again. “We are not leaving any stone unturned,” said Lt. Mike Risko, Michigan State Police.
Cases where alibis changed or crumbled:
James Earl Ray
Charles Russell Sterling Jr.
Shall I go on?
Venus was living with Doug in Virginia. Venus left Doug and went to Michigan. What happened to the truck? We have Venus' parents telling us that the truck didn't come to Michigan with Venus. We have no reason to doubt them. LE sure hasn't named *them* POIs. So a logical and reasonable conclusion (and let's please be logical and reasonable - it's late and I'm tired) is that the truck stayed in Virginia with Doug.
How could the truck logically and reasonably leave Doug's loving care at that point? Well, it could be stolen, sold, or loaned to someone. Was it? Logically and reasonably, no, because we have no indications whatever of any of those things happening.
