    Can anyone tell me what the sleuthing rule is on Websleuths?

    I'll explain. You can do anything you want in your private sleuthing. But don't bring it here. We don't accuse or point the finger at anyone without something printed in mainstream media giving us sourced information.

    If a person has not been named a suspect, is not a registered SO, and has not been named a POI you can't bring private information about them to the forum. You can talk about what they say publicly, mainstream media reports, interviews or their actions as reported in MSM but you cannot just sleuth everyone within a hundred mile radius of the crime and bring personal information to the forum. This is ever evolving believe me. In the coming days information will be coming out.... and then, who we are sleuthing evolves into a more open policy.

    Now once someone is named a POI, or a suspect that rule changes and the doors open wider. As this case progresses and people start speaking out, you can discuss that.

    Once again I have to ask you if you see a post that doesn't meet our rules, don't confront the poster, not engage the poster in discussion. Use your alert button and let a moderator handle it.

    Now this is different than theorizing in which you state that you feel that the perp could be in certain categories. You don't name them or identify them however of give any personal information about these people if it is theory only.

    "Example" I believe it literally could be anyone in the neighborhood. A hunter, a neighbor, a schoolmate........

    Wrong......... I think it is the next door neighbor who lives at *** Street because he looks creepy.

    I don't really know, I just think that even in the randomness, if that's what's going on here, it isn't truly random...
    I have been wondering that myself and agree with your reasoning. Just thinking logically, I don't quite get the idea behind planting items either.
    Regardless of whether the goal is just to do something awful and then discard her, or keep her as some sort of prize, I think the goal is to get away fast and clean, so as not be caught.

    By giving up the advantage of having apparently gotten away fairly clean, ad double back to plant false clues, the perp risks being seen by someone and completely losing the advantage. Just my thoughts, anyway.
    We will never forget the missing.

    We really don't know what LE knows but I think they have POI's who have been questioned. Perhaps one of the POI's has lawyered up...we have no idea. We just don't know what is going on behind the scenes.

    Perhaps the perp is a loner and no one would know that he's been acting strange etc. Perhaps the perp is being protected by his parents if he is young.

    We hear about the searches but the whole town is mum about possible POI's. Holly's parents have not come into the media to make a plea...which leads me to think they know who is responsible.

    In my opinion, I think they have some POI's and I think they are being watched. I think they may even have an idea of where they work, their schedule, some daily activities, etc. which may be why the searches go in certain directions.

    not sure if that reporter had his ducks in a row... I haven't heard it anywhere else...

    I also tweeted at him asking what time this morning and he never answered...

    Absolutely, if it is anything like the small town area I grew up in, everyone seems to think they know everyone else's business or is either related to them in some way. There must be a million rumours floating around and must be very hard for all to keep on track with so few facts being shared with the public...however we must hope that there is good reason for how they are sharing the news. (or lack of)

    T-shirts bearing the favorite scripture of Holly's mother were sold for the Holly Bobo Fund.

    The proceeds are not going to the reward fund, but to the Holly Bobo Fund.

    D'Lynn Burton, a close family friend and neighbor, helped sell the shirts after working with Holly's mother on the design and wording.

    "When Holly comes home, [Holly's mother] wants her to have some money so she can go on a vacation, or just treat herself with anything she wants."

    So, grandmaj, with new information given by GG, does that still mean we cannot discuss the t-shirt issues.....

    Thanks, score

    If she is a neighbor and worked with Mrs. Bobo on the shirt design, she probably considers herself a close friend by now!

    It is hard to believe the perp could be so messy yet be able to hide Holly.

    The most likely scenario, to me, is he is playing a game. By this, I am assuming the item was found in the open or was tipped by the perp.

    Combine this and the possible planting of clues and you get a scary picture of the perp but one that may have Holly alive.

    What if this guy is just totally nuts? Maybe it's all a game to him and he doesn't care of he gets caught at the end? Maybe he just wants all the drama? I guess I watch too many movies.

Just guesses on my part based on the premise that she may still be alive and she has developed some sort of trust with her kidnapper.
    Like someone suggested, the perp may be thinking they're on their 'honeymoon' and Holly is playing along with it to a certain extent.

    Kids keep their phones on silent (otherwise they get into trouble at school if a teacher hears the phone ring). Most kids I know don't even talk on their phones. All they do is text, text and text some more so it never actually rings. What if he didn't realize she had it?

    As far as the location, they could have passed by there on the way to wherever she was taken. Don't forget this evidence has likely been there for the last two weeks.

    In any case...all of this is hypothetical since we don't even know if that is what they found.
    Makes sense, I keep my phone on vibrate much of the time instead of the ringer. I read one report that the item was found somewhere roadside. If thats true and it were a cell phone and Holly tossed it then IMO it has likely been there for days, possibly many days. Even if the loser who kidnapped her got rid of it it could have been there for awhile now.

    Its a shame this much time has passed now since the abduction. Really when I think about it Im sort of surprised the kidnapper and Holly werent found the same day of the abduction. They walked into the woods together. I havent seen how long it took her brother before he called 911. Initially we heard she was dragged into the woods, which would make you think the 911 call was almost immediate, then it became she was led into the woods and her brother called 911 after seeing blood outside.

    Does anyone know if her brother has taken a polygraph?
