    Whoa...look at all the interesting businesses nearby:

    A trucking company (Peterbilt), a refrigeration supply company, what appears to be a mini-storage place...

    very interesting businesses that all seem to have very large buildings.

    I read that Kim Raffo had stayed in a LI hotel/motel for over a month right before her death in AC. I don't remember the name. Was it one of the hotels/motels mentioned in GB4 investigation?

    No, I think HA said it was called Meadowbrook. It definitely wasn't HI. Now, of course it is possible that she stayed there, but it's never been mentioned in any of the articles I've read.

    My guess (and it's just a guess since I'm nowhere near LI, nor have I ever been to Hauppage) is that this area is pretty deserted at night. I think the quote on the review for the Holiday Inn kind of tells us that the area is mostly quiet. The drug deals in the parking lot along with a staff that reportedly doesn't seem to care point to a quiet, sparsely populated area at night.

    It is. My daughters' baton school is in that industrial park. They sometimes have classes at 7:00pm. The only people I ever see are the ones going to and from class.

    Here's another map of the Holiday Inn:

    holiday inn express hauppauge new york - Google Maps

    The refrigeration company appears to be right next door. If you zoom out, you'll see that the hotel is somewhat isolated. Do we know how far out of the parking lot Megan went?

    Edit: the map didn't link the picture I wanted to show. If you look at the marker for the hotel, it's not really correct. The hotel would be toward the left of the marker that Google lists. Zoom in and you'll see what I'm talking about.

    So, let me make sure I've got things straight.

    Megan Waterman disappeared from a hotel at 1:30am, Sunday, from a hotel that may or may not call the police when you ask them to, in an area that is basically deserted?

    I can't find any info about how far out Megan went.

    According to Mountain Kat in post #2 of this thread, Megan "was last seen on a security tape at 1:30 am, walking away from an Express Holiday Inn in Happauge, NY."

    in one of the tv shows, Megan's mom said she actually walked from the Holiday Inn to a store. I researched & it appears the closest convenience store is called "On the Run" located at 360 W Wheeler Rd. I always wondered if police ever checked the store's surveillance camera.

    I apologize if this question has been asked but, does anyone know if the area in which this hotel is located is known for criminal activity?

    I've only seen reports of criminal activity at the hotel itself.

    When I map the convenience store, it looks like she walked straight down that road that the hotel is on. She would have walked past a very isolated section until she reached the gas station/store. The gas station is not far off the Long Island Expressway; but there is also a residential area on the other side of the road from the gas station. He either picked her up and drove her to the residential area, or got on the expressway. If there is surveillance from the store, it would answer the questions about what she did next.

    I sort of doubt that the police went to the trouble of checking the store's surveillance.

    And thinking more about it, we don't really even know if Waterman had a Craigslist date that night. It could have been a "good samaritan" who just gave her a ride...

    Here is the location of my POI's sister's bizz and her home marked as "A" and "C"



    Add to that that my POI stated himself Oct 14, 2011 that:

    "i went up to LI once back in june 2010 to see my sister, and parents graves, and then again in may 2011."

    Megan Waterman disappeared June 6th 2010 from the Holiday Inn Express marked on the map as "B".

    (Note he only ment his patents graves, his sister is very much alive, he was visiting her June 2010, but I donīt know what date)
    Hi, english is not my first language so please bear with me

    the business between the Holiday Inn Express and the convenience store is Abco Refrigeration.

    maybe the guy is a trucker?
