Re-thinking the timeline
Police are asking for all footage where people claim to have seen Kyron after 8:45 a.m. on June 4th
07-15-2010, 03:02 PM #4Authorities are asking media to give them copies of any video interviews with students, parents or others who said they saw Kyron Horman after 8:45 a.m. on June 4.
07-15-2010, 03:05 PM #5Police initially said Kyron was seen by someone around 9 a.m. at the school. They later said he was last seen at 8:45 a.m. by his stepmother, Terri Moulton Horman, as he headed to his classroom.
07-15-2010, 03:06 PM #6
LOL I guess the media can be their friend.
07-15-2010, 03:08 PM #7
I guess my expectation is that these interviews and media footage would already be copied and be in the hands of LE as part of the investigation.

They could be putting a bow on the case, making sure they have nothing at all that contradicts their most current picture, or they could be back at Square One. I doubt that they're starting over, because of their comments about how they feel the money has been well-spent and they don't expect it to drag out. I hope this is just getting everything in perfect order.

More info here:
Multnomah County Sgt. Travis Gullberg said the sheriff's office won't issue subpoenas and said release of the material is voluntary.Gullberg said the sheriff's office is not planning any interviews or statements to update the public on its investigation.
07-15-2010, 03:51 PM #12The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office asked local and national news organizations on Thursday to send in copies of any video interviews with students, parents, school officials or community members who reported seeing Kyron Horman after 8:45 a.m. on June 4.
07-15-2010, 03:55 PM #13
hmmm... I would have expected this from Terri's lawyer...LOL.. Please help Kyron come home!!
07-15-2010, 04:04 PM #14
Hmmmm. The content of the article has changed a bit since it came out. A statement about re-thinking the timeline is gone, which is telling. I think LE doesn't need to rethink anything. And this:
The request is so that investigators can make sure they have "dotted every i and crossed every t," said Travis Gullberg, a sheriff's office spokesman.
"There's nothing new," Gullberg said. "There's nothing to read into this."
