    Totally agree!

    & now I'm back to did he have a car?

    I keep leaning toward no cause wouldn't the search radius be much larger?

    I think it was placed there that night. Keep in mind the police (I think it was a Mercer Police Officer) did a quick walk about and then left. The police didn't return until morning when the body was found so they didn't dump it during an actual "search".

    Personally I think the whole thing was done offsite, the dismemberment and the storage. If this had happened at the complex the police would likely have found the scene, not only blood but also a horrid smell, fluids from the decaying body, likely insect activity, etc... I think if they had the scene nailed down they would likely have the tools used, bloody clothes, etc...and that would mean they have a real suspect. If your theory is correct and the body was always there, did the killer keep the rotting corpse but then carefully disgard every other smidgen of evidence?

    In order to dismember a body and not leave any of your own dna at the scene you would have to wear a hairnet and special throw away clothes, then carefully dump the clothes and every tool you used and clean the whole area. Then you have to be super careful that the tools and clothes do not contaminate your car when you transport various things out of the area (assuming the person had a car of course). If you were gonna do all that why not plan on a better method of disposal?

    I just really wish we had more info! I wish the police would state whether they found the dismemberment scene! Guessing with so few facts is so darn frustrating.

The question remains, why hold onto the body all that time?
    I can't figure out why, if the body was offsite for 5 days, they decided to bring it back on Wednesday night. Why wait until Wednesday? Was it because the police had been there? If the body was found in a trash can was it because Thursday was trash day? Honestly if this was all done offsite I have no clue why they waited.

    I live in the Atlanta area could not believe this story has not had more widespread attention.
    Great posts by you all. I thought I would do a little more research on the surroundings and came across the site for Barrister Hall. http://www.barristershall.com/ There are several interior views of the apartments but what is most surprising is just how close to campus this is. It is LITERALLY steps from the Law School. I can see how one might feel fairly secure given the location.

    Been pretty hot & humid down here lately, can't imagine body parts exposed to elements not stinking to holy hades.

    I wonder when the search begins on all the empty building downtown (& there sure are bunches.)
    I doubt they would want to use an abandoned building. Important factors would be water and privacy. Most abandoned buildings probably have the water shut off, plus unless they did this in the daytime it wouldn't be cool to use flashlights or lanterns and risk the police investigating.

    More practical locations would be a motel room, a cabin, a friend or relative's empty house, or even maybe the woods next to a river or lake IF they know of an area that is likely to provide absolute privacy for a few hours. That is for the dismemberment, storage of course is another matter.

    Yeah I wonder about that too, but I don't think the search radius is small because of McDaniels lack of a car. Sheesh they are questioning TONS of people and most of those folks DO have a car! I think most likely Thursday morning they found the torso in a trash can (per reporter rumor) and then they thought "sheeshers we need to check local garbage" hence the cadavre dogs local neighborhood search. A second hit means keep checking the local area.

    It isn't like they can search the entire city even if they wanted to! Notice they only closed the landfill for ONE day, that is darn quick imo. It took 32 days to find the body of that Utah woman after they were told she was in the landfill (in one piece).

    Thanks, SS. The reminder is meant for everyone because we have several new members posting on this thread, and other members who haven't posted in awhile.

    My whole problem with the offsite theory is why on earth would the killer return to the apartment where a search is going to begin?? That seems incredibly risky, even if the killer wanted the torso found, they could have placed it somewhere easy to find but somewhere less likely to be occupied by some sort of nosey LE.

    It seems way more likely for the bulk of the murder and dismemberment to have occurred at the very least somewhere extremely close.

    And if indeed the murder happened days before the torso was found, wouldn't that have left enough time for the killer to clean up after themselves?

    According to this latest article (posted above), the police are leaning towards her apartment as being the scene of the crime, although there were no signs of a struggle.

    Well leaving the body outside the victims front door is pretty risky too (if they live there). If they managed to clean up all the evidence (i.e. hacksaw, knives, bloody clothes, etc...) why in the heck not put the torso somewhere ELSE if discovery was a concern? Discovery was not a concern which is why they put the torso in such an obvious place.

    If the person had no way of transporting the torso out of their BUT they wanted to hide all the evidence what did they do with the rest of it? Where are the other parts? Where is the hacksaw? Where are the knives? Where are the bloody clothes?

    Really think about it for a moment. You got the rotting torso from a body that was dismembered days before in the apartment, and you think "sheesh" the police are here. Gotta do something about this torso cause it makes the whole place reek....I guess I'll just put it out next to the apartment house and hope no one notices. The trash guys are coming in the morning I am sure it won't be a problem! So you carry it out and put it next to the trash cans, then you go home and relax cause you know the rest of your apartment is spotless and evidence free! Every other darn thing was taken care of well in advance, the tools and clothing were disposed of (or rendered untraceable to you), the dismemberment scene was cleaned up, you just spray a little bit of glade around the room and it is all good.
