    I am assuming that the white truck has not been located, as LE would certainly want to stop the calls coming in from the public with tips about every white truck on the road.

    Did we have a list going of what possible jobs would involve being out at about 4:30 AM for legitimate purposes?

    I have newspaper delivery/distribution stuck in my head for some reason, as well as a truck seeking day laborers as another possibility. Both might have a reason to circle blocks, i.e filling paper machines for example, or seeking workers. Also private security patrols often use a white truck, I've seen this in various cities. (It seems that LE would be aware of security firms and vehicles in the area however.) Any other ideas?
    Just my opinion, of course.

    My uni had white trucks like those as facilities vehicles during construction. Usually not out early in the morning unless to move cones and barrels to new locations that couldn't be crossed.

    Do day laborers usually hang out in downtown areas? I usually see them here by the highway.

    I don't know what that is.

    I think the research park should be searched more thoroughly (it is located on the other side of 10th and Morton on Google Maps).

    Allegedly, that truck going west on 10th turned north onto Morton the first time around, but not the 2nd.
    Why would someone then go into the research park on the 2nd pass?

    Hey guys
    Can someone tell me again about how long it took to walk from Smallwood to CR's apt? From other maps, i thought it didn't look as far. But looking at this one carefully, it seemed she still had a ways to go and corners to turn walking alone on her way home that night. Did JR say he watched her till 10th and College?
    That still left her a little ways to go. How long did they say it took to walk from one place to the other?
    WHY couldn't JR just freaking walk her home that night? WHY??
    Do any of these POI's have cars? Any of her "friends" have cars? Or white trucks by any chance?
    I sat there for the longest time
    after you were gone....
    thinking about all things we said.....
    and all the things we didn't say...
    I wonder if you misunderstood,
    cause I'm no good when it comes to talking....
    And I'm sorry,I didn't know the words.......
    to make you stay.

    Campus blue lights are an emergency telephone system. Basically they're a giant pole with a big red button that if pressed, places a call directly to 911 and light a blue light at the top. They often look like this:


    In an emergency situation they can be used to report suspicious activity, or, if you're chased, you can hit all the buttons as you run away so emergency personnel can track you.

    Thanks for the help!

    IU doesn't have the emergency blue light system, I believe we have some scattered call boxes but nothing substantial. When I visited friends at University of Maryland I saw the lights and was surprised when they weren't here too, considering we have a larger student population than UMD. There is a safety escort service with limited hours:

    Because 10th Street continues on 1 more block to another main North South Street that runs the length of the City, (Rogers St.).

    I don't understand why we have'nt seen more tape/pictures of her or the truck. Should'nt there b her crossing or attempting to cross 10th street? And the truck should have been picked up going all the way around the block.

    Police follow phone call tip, search wooded area near Martinsville, nothing found
    http://idsnews.com/news/story.aspx?id=81958

    At about 3 p.m., the BPD received a phone call on a tip line that said there was a suspicious odor in the area, BPD Capt. Joe Qualters said.

    “We went up into the area that was described. We also checked by air the whole area up there, and while checking apparently someone found what appeared to be a fresh mound of dirt described as two feet by four feet,” he said. “They then began checking around underneath that ground and found absolutely nothing.”

    If there are no cameras there, then it's not possible to get tape/pictures.
