    I agree with Shefner. I just glanced at the enlarged photo and thought it looked like a person in the truck bed with his arm around or holding something down, and a tarp pulled over it (or her). That is creepy.

    Could it be a person sitting/slumped in the back of the pickup...rather than equiptment? It's really hard to make out.

    I think/pray/hope with the release of these photos and the massive amount of media attention this will come to some sort of end soon.

    When I first saw the photo, I thought I saw someone in the back as well.

    Qualters said police are trying to determine if the truck might be connected to construction in the area. He said police have identified another place that may have video of the area.
    It looks like LE is aware of the possible construction connection. It certainly seems suspicious.

    The tool box appears to be at the tailgate of the truck....and just behind the rear window appears to be one or two people. But that could be the equipment that others have mentioned.

    I have a 2000 Chevy s10 with a liner and the liner on the tailgate comes off easy.That could be why the inside looks white.

    Ok, im on my phone at work, so I cant go back through all the threads at the moment. However I was just thinking of a few things that I dont have the answers to.

    1. Do any of JW's frat brothers that were involved in the confrontation live at smallwood?

    2. If no, why were they there? Especially curious as to why they were in the lobby of the 5th floor. (i think thats what was reported.

    3. Does LS live on the floor that the confrontation occured?

    4. Were the frat guys already on that floor when LS and CR got off the elevator, or did they follow them up there?

    5. Were these guys at kilroys?

    My whole purpose is to find out why the frat guys were at smallwood if none of them lived there. Did they follow LS home from kilroys, or were they waiting there for her?

    Which of these truck photos came first according to the time stamps?

    Actually looking real close now, I doubt there is a liner at all. I bet this truck was equipped with a Tekstyle Snap-On Tonneau Cover and it was transporting something.

    That would give the detail of black around the edge.

    Notice the wheels

    The rims on the front and back wheels look different to me. That could be a big identifier for this truck. Did LE note this during the conference? Or am I just seeing things funny?

    From this morning's presser:
    The four-door Chevrolet Silverado or Colorado pickup was caught on video at 4:14 June 3, traveling west on 10th Avenue toward Morton Street, where it ran a stop sign and headed north on Morton, toward the building where the 20-year-old Edgemont High School graduate last visited. At 4:24 a.m., the vehicle is again seen traveling west on 10th toward Morton, Bloomington police Capt. Joe Qualters said.
    http://www.lohud.com/article/20110615/NEWS02/106150373

    The truck was described as a Chevrolet Silverado full-size truck or a Chevrolet Colorado mid-size truck, believed to be a mid-2000s year model with four doors, a short bed and distinctive wheels.

    The truck does have a bed liner and had equipment in the back, police said. It's believed to have a logo or writing of some kind on the doors and on the tailgate."It's significant in the proximity and the timing," Qualters said. "Hopefully it's someone who can provide information to us, who may have seen something in that particular area."

    Quarles also said they are aware of another place that might have video of the area.

    I think something about unique wheels were mentioned...
    Just my opinion, of course.

    Quarles did mention the truck had distinctive wheels. (I'm looking for the video now.)

    Was the picture they showed today of Lauren leaving Smallwood taken before she went to the bar? Her roommate last said she went with DR to JR's first but she looks to be alone.

    This truck could have also been used to move someone's belongings back home after the college year was over.

    I was wonder this as well. If they picked their equipment up not planning to return to the job site since they had picked up LS? All of this is just speculation and this truck may have just been in the area on ligitement business. If that is the case though, one would think they would have spotted LS and could offer information.

    I think that seems unlikely. Students don't move at 4 am. It's a shortbed truck. Spring semester ended a month ago and the first summer session is still going on.
    Forgive my typos, I'm getting used to typing on an iPad.

    I wouldn't think they were moving at that time, but that they had a truck there for that purpose. I didn't know the semester had ended so much earlier. I thought it had just ended which would explain why some of the POI's went home after LS was missing.

    Re more video of LS:

    Qualters said the BPD is currently looking at more video footage of Lauren from that night, but would not release the video’s location or content. He said the BPD is able to identify who was with her in the footage.

    Re jewelry possibly wearing:

    She appears to wear a watch or dark bracelet on her right wrist.

    This is what I can't figure out, when is this photo from? Does she have on shoes, I can't tell. Did they remove CR from the photo if this was when she was leaving Smallwood after the fight?
    Just my opinion, of course.
