    Bloom-

    Sorry I don't know how to quote a post from a previous thread but thanks for posting the link to the story about JW's attorney. You are absolutely correct -that is the same article to which I was referring! As I said, my memory isn't as young as it used to be (hee hee). I think when I read it, I surely thought it was referring to JR instead of JW. I know them by initials so I probably was confusing the names. I say this b/c I specifically remember thinking that it was about one of the boys of whom I'm suspicious, and JW isn't one of them anymore.

    In reviewing the article that someone recently posted, (and I've read this before but thanks for bringing it up again!), I can't keep from thinking about this :

    "There has been much speculation in the media about Lauren's disappearance. However, this is a fact ... Lauren last used her cell phone at 12:16 a.m., just after midnight as June 2 became June 3 when she was still safely in the confines of Smallwood. Consider that fact when you read about Lauren's case or hear her story. Let me repeat it: Lauren last used her cell phone at 12:16 a.m., just after midnight as June 2 became June 3 when she was still safely in the confines of Smallwood.

    The purpose of what I am sharing with you is not to speculate about what happened. The purpose of this is to encourage people to take precautions to be safe." - C. Spierer


    From this I get two things: 1. Charlene clearly wants us to know the facts, that LS had not used her phone after 12:16 and 2. Be safe and take precautions - have your phone with you. However, when I add these two together, I sense that she's implying that Lauren didn't have her phone with her after 12:16. I brought this up before but no one commented, so I'm doing so again. This really surprised me b/c prior to reading this, I'd thought LS had her phone then left it at the bar. Does anything think her phone may have been planted at the bar? If so, what are some scenarios?

And as to "friends," LS may have met CR and MB the week before, but she had hung out with JR for a year, and was also friends with DR. By your same logic, they would not refer to JW as her "friend," but her boyfriend, and might well refer to HT and others as her roommates.
    Hi AnalyticalExaminer - can you link up the bolded part for me, please? I watched the video of this this morning and I didn't hear any names being thrown around. Perhaps I missed it and it is actually in an article somewhere or something?

    Thanks,

    Salem

    It's been linked and discussed at length in recent threads on this topic. I don't know whether they specifically "named" JR and CR, but they explicitly referred to JR's claim re the 4:15-30 time period, and CR's memory loss. They don't have to name names, because everyone knows who they are talking about.

    Here is your post to back to me regarding these names, in case you had forgotten: (bold is mine)

    I have read, yes, that DEA raided ZO. However, I have not read that from any mainstream media or otherwise seemingly reliable source. In fact, I have yet to see any mainstream media source report anything of the sort, even without naming names. It is merely an anonymous forum commenter repeating an anonymous comment elsewhere. I'm sorry, but while I don't rule out the possibility that they are true, I don't credit anonymous comments, and don't think they should be treated as fact, because anyone can make up anything.

    Possible they are true? The Spierers NEVER NAMED NAMES.

    Gabby - I did read this somewhere else as well. Possible a news article. I'll try and find the link but I believe it was right when the kids were moving back in.

    It was an apparent attempted abduction of a blonde girl from the same alley that Lauren had walked through. A car pulled up and one guy got out and tried to grab the girl. Fortunately, there were 2 guys walking behind her that came to her safety. It was recent - like when the kids returned to school.

    I have not found this to be in a news article so I am a little skeptical about its source and the possibility of someone deliberately trying to throw LE off the path of the POIs. I did a search a zillion different ways and came up with nothing. I read it somewhere but it could have just as easily been in a comment section as well. There was no news coverage of it in Bton that I know of.

    It's a rather strange coincidence, but then again, not confirmed.

    Edit - Bbirdii account is better than mine. I question the validity of this whole set up and boom, it happens. As if every blonde walking through that alley is a target. I have not seen any warnings to students or articles confirming so I'm not convinced this is entirely true. I wonder if they even called the cops or got a plate number for that matter. If they were there as a set up, one would think a plate no would be one of the first things they would get. JMO

    This story sounds made up by the poster. I dont believe it. If that was true the poster should have notified police.

    I don't believe the story either. While I can definitfly believe something like this happened, I don't believe this person's account of it. Some red flags for me in wording and phrasing. However, the person gets points for being creative. Also s/he could be an actual witness of June 3 who already notified LE.
