    The White Ford 250 Pick Up Truck Towed from the Family Home

    http://www.koinlocal6.com/default.aspx

    Snippet

    It has been 12 days since Kyron Horman was last seen. Investigators are searching new areas and providing more pictures to try to solicitate more tips from the public. Investigators also towed a truck from the Horman property and searched a neighbor's home.

    JBean, the front page of KOIN says that investigators towed the truck, under the heading "Investigators Looking for Clues." The video says that the truck was towed at the family's request because of mechanical problems.

    Investigators did *not* tow the truck

    The video says the news station talked with the sheriff's office, who stated that it was the Hormans who towed the truck, to the dealership for mechanical repairs.

    This video, called Prayer Vigil for hope, is the truck video:

    Relevant part from 5:15 in the video transcribed:

    "Well the sheriff's office tells me this truck was towed at the family's request to a dealership because of mechanical problems."[/quote]

    I emailed KOIN newsdesk and asked them to fix the discrepancy.

    And suggested they post and air a retraction if the copy is incorrect as this has fueled unnecessary speculation and accusations against the family.

    Lindstrand said a white pickup truck towed from the Horman property isn't part of the investigation. The Horman family had tried to drive the truck to the grocery store, found that the starter was dead and called a tow truck, she said.

    Thank you for doing that, Calliope. They need to state it definitively one way or the other.

    Well now it appears another news site has verified the truck was towed for repair. Seems KOIN needs to edit.

    According to Multnomah County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Lt. Mary Lindstrand:

    Lindstrand said a white pickup truck towed from the Horman property isn't part of the investigation. The Horman family had tried to drive the truck to the grocery store, found that the starter was dead and called a tow truck, she said.

    I wonder why they didn't jump-start it.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    fwiw, if the starter is bad jumping won't help, if it's a stick shift it can be push started however, lol

    If the starter is bad, sometimes it's just a bad spot, and you can rock the vehicle or tap the starter with a hammer, and then it'll start.

    It'd be interesting to know how the truck was diagnosed to have a bad starter when, if the vehicle won't start, it could be the starter, the battery, the alternator, the solenoid.

    Can't believe they called a tow truck for a starter when it could have just been a loose battery cable that just needed to be tightened.
