Terrific discussion and sleuthing so far - an incredible amount of work has been done by a good many talented WSers. Welcome to those new to the case! Excellent links to information from media abound on the first four threads; familiarizing yourself with the case will enhance your understanding of the discussion on this, its fourth thread.

Carrying over my post from the last page of thread #4 .............
Many things are not sitting well with me this evening, listed below:
a) The mobile phone habits
Both RS and GR say that Jo was "useless" with her mobile phone
RS says that she too is "useless" with her phone
RS and GR say quite the same thing yet Jo's actions involving her phone on the 17th tell us that she uses her phone in a rather regular way like the rest of us - she called CAG (sorry forgot his initials), and she called and spoke to RS no problem - so that kind of contradicts RS and GR's tales of Jo's mobile phone habits (and indeed RS' story about her own mobile phone habits). I find that troubling. I wonder if these two have any other things they share, iykwim.
b) The friend's video
I don't know why but I find this video very disturbing and not at all what I was 'expecting'. Anyone else have similar feelings?
c) The father
I don't know about you, and I hesitate to judge on looks alone usually, but I find this fella about the least likely kind of chap to be working in IT. Is that really his job or does he have some significant 'other' role that would mean that the LE came out in force, guns blazing from the outset - which by all accounts was veeery early on considering this perhaps appeared at first to be just a missing person case - after an office party - no great urgency. ??
all, of course, jmo.
Welcome to those who've just come aboard this day, and may have escaped our notice. For those guests onlooking, we were all new once, some of us quite recently - join us!
have just posted on previous thread will it get on this thread does anyone know pls
Not sure if this is greg or not, however, I do wonder and some of you might not like this much.
The friendship between Jo and her friend goes back 10 years, they went to Uni together, on their first holiday together and camping together. Now, being of warped mind etc. was this friendship more than a friendship and was her friend dumped for Greg at some time. This then brings the slant of obsession into focus. it was the friend that knew that Jo was was on her own for the weekend.
I will leave you all to think about the rest.
Sorry if this offends but I have a strong feeling a woman is very much involved and this theory fits.
And Destroyer's reply to Sweep the cat's last post, from Thread #4:
I did raise a similar issue in a previous thread about RS, but got shot down because others believed 'Strangulation' is more of a mans thing.
Just watched the Sky News interview with RS & i hope this doesnt offend anyone, but what i am going to say is that if it were known RS was a lesbian, i would have her down as the 'Man' if you know what i mean ?? Please dont take these comments as 'Homophobic' , just an observation i am making.
I also noticed she doesnt like looking up at the camera much either ??
Rest In Peace Alice Gross
how do you refresh this page pls
Most men can over power a woman. But a woman vs a woman, is pretty evenly matched. Those are not winning odds for me.
Daily Express has a new headline for information already all over the papers:
JOANNA YEATES’ LAST WORDS: SEE YOU ON CHRISTMAS EVE...
Good enough overview of RS's press accounts today though, for those who haven't seen it, plus the interview video.
Police believe PhD student Rebecca, 25, was the last person to speak to her. Her body was found on Christmas Day.
Joanna made the fateful call to Rebecca at 8.30pm on December 17 as she walked back to the flat she had rented with Greg.
Joanna had telephoned her “inseparable’’ best friend of 10 years while walking home alone from the pub where she had enjoyed Christmas drinks with her work mates.
Devastated Rebecca revealed how Joanna had given her no hint anything was wrong in that final call. “She had so much life in her left to live,” she said.
She also quashed speculation that Joanna could have been seeing another man before she was killed, insisting her friend was “besotted” with boyfriend Greg Reardon.
“She was so happy with Greg too,” she said. “They were perfect for each other. They were very close and anyone around them could see that happiness and just how good they were together. Jo’s not someone who would move into an apartment with someone on a whim. It was very clear to everyone who knew her that she and Greg were the real deal. She had so much life left in her to live. Now that has been taken away.’’

These words are a wonderful cover for someone who is hurting about their ex lover. She says she was the last person to speak to Jo. So positive is she that she cannot look into the camera when saying it.
Is it because you are based in the US where I know the convention is different? To us it's a little weird when US TV interviewees or panel pundits turn and stare at us. When you have three of them on a panel on Fox it's just scary. In the UK, only the host addresses the audience at home and interviewees or panel pundits look at him/her or each other but never at the camera.
Goodnight all off to bed happy sleuthing
Now Im off to bed zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
"There are some that should be behind bars....and some that shouldn't"
Remember the DCI's word "these are sick & twisted people we are dealing with here..." all that is missing from that sentence is "not any ordinary murderer."

Just to clarify folks...from the previous thread I said re the dogs..

And the best said about the results there the better. (Robin Hood)
The above should have read..
And the LEAST said about that the better.
Don't want to diss the dogs lol.
Also on the previous thread posters were wondering about the police having not described the 4 x 4 seen in the area. The police said they had reasons for not giving out further descriptions, I have a theory re. this..
I THINK they want to allow witnesses to describe the vehicle themselves without the police leading them because when this goes to court (and I think it will) the person involved will try to get their brief to discount the evidence due to witnesses being 'led' by the police.
A little story for you, years ago I would meet a few aquaintences for dog walking so to speak. We would meet in a pub car park next to a golf course and while the dogs went on the park we all would have a beer. Sometimes if it were raining or cold we would sit in the back 'hatch' of one of the chaps cars. My car was a Nissan and when the boot hatch was lifted there was a panel where ones legs would go so you couldn't sit properly, it was too uncomfortable. However the Volvo estate my mate had was flush to the floor of the car, you could sit and dangle your legs out, a very comfortable seat.
Anything in the boot could be rolled out without lifting it up over the 'ledge' if you understand.
Just my observations re the 4 x4, could mean nothing.
"Perhaps they found the remains of a body organ ie a heart for example ?? I'm sure ive said this before ?? "
Sorry Destroyer but no quote button
I don't know if this is meant as 'tongue in cheek' joke kind of thing, some kind of blood or guts left on show.
Surely if this were so, GR would have spotted it immediately and rung police. However, if he was the guilty party he certainly wouldn't have left it there for parents to discover.
I feel this was impulsive murder not pre-meditated so no time for any kind of 'surgery' on body.
I definitely agree about parents not expecting their daughter to be found alive on that first press conference or whatever it's called. They didn't seem to have any hope for her return...so very possible something was found in flat -but what??
Couldn't GR have eaten the pizza - he wouldn't have had any idea it was going to be an important clue. Box would have gone into rubbish bin which I believe was collected next day?
Unless the pizza was eaten before the murder, and unless the murderer is a really cold and heartless individual, then I doubt very much they've eaten it too after the murder. Infact i'd go as far as to say, if it was a close acquintance, and the murder was not intended (heat of the moment thing) I doubt they'll be eating very much, or sleeping at all.
They must be going through a living hell.
Just waiting for that inevitable knock at the door from the Police.
