    This is incorrect. He posted, briefly, on another forum and was reposted on PT.

    "reported"? by whom?

    re #2: Effectively acknowledged? Effective to whom? Effectively to those who chose to believe that is what was implied?
    re #3: LE said (paraphrased) We have heard the rumors and are checking them out....
    re: #4 News media have published what HT said and what MB said neither said "drug use" though maybe implied. Media published what police said (see re #3 above) I do not think #4 is a valid arguement at all.
    re #5: If I were a family member I would not deny any rumor unless I absolutely knew it to be untrue, because a rumor may or may not help solve the case...

    How many times in these kinds of cases have we seen rumors repeated by friends, aquaintances & even sometimes family members turn out to be just that rumors... I will not take any rumors as fact until they are proven as fact. That includes drug use. IMO if you take one rumor as fact you should consider any other rumor as fact as well and that is just not something I am willing to do.

    Would you please provide sources for 1, 2, and 3?

    - What do you mean by "associated with more than one group of POIs"?
    - What do you mean by "effectively been acknowledged by her friends" - the closest I've seen to that is HT saying:
    "We're all, to an extent, 'partyers,'" HT said, asked whether Spierer would often go out to bars. "But I wouldn't consider her the ultimate partyer. She went out, she had a good time, but it wasn't excessive." http://www.lohud.com/article/2011061...ollege-student
    - I have never seen LE say anything but that they have heard rumors of drug use and overdose

    Thanks.

    Edit: I was writing this post when Angelaonline posted - great minds, I suppose.

    What is the other address? There is no substantive news from Martinsville available w/o a subscription. Maybe it was a diff. fire. I noticed there was one right around June 3 on "Burn" Blvd. Ironic.

    Interesting, because I heard a rumor that his brother has been posting here.

    I could be wrong, but didn't BW or some other friend say something similar? In a tv interview, perhaps?

    I recall that, as well. Give me a minute and I'll be back with a link.

    .
    IMO the above quote by HT (or anything similiar by another friend) would lead the reader to believe the opposite of drug use. "Went out, had a good time but wasn't excessive" since the question was about bars, it only leads me to believe LS went out, drank with her group, but wasn't excessive in that regard.

    <modsnip>? "Party" today doesn't mean what it used to. Even "not excessive" doesn't mean what it used to.

    Last time I was in college was 2002, 9 years ago, I went back to school. I also have a daughter that is a recent college grad and a currently attending college age daughter. Both of whom I am very close to and talk to about most anything. I realize that Party means different things to kids today, but to my younger college age daughter they say party when they are going out drinking, clubbing or going to a friends house for a bonfire (basically a kegger). She nor any of her closest friends are drug users. I also have a lot of experince dealing with drug addiction, a drug addict in a couple of other close relationships of mine, so I do have a pretty good knowledge of drugs as a whole.

    He posted a few times (posts were mod deleted) and hasn't been back (under the same name at least).

    I was back in school a couple years ago with people who were a lot younger than I am. And before that I was a professor and knew the students I taught and those who worked in my lab very well. Some still call me up. I wasn't that much older than they were at the time, and some saw me as a big sister rather than an authority figure. And before that, I was a grad student. I have spent most of my adult life around students.

    I have seen people use the word "party" to mean a lot of different things. "Partier" can be used to mean "someone who likes to drink a lot" or "someone who likes to drink and smoke pot" all the way to "someone who likes to do crystal meth". As far as I know, and this was true when I was in college, there are very few in college who would not consider themselves to some extent "partiers".

    This wasn't addressed to me, but I do want to assert that the meaning of partying is completely context based. It's not even close to a every time it's used by a college kid it means X and every time it's used by someone well out of college it means Y.

    Personally, I deplore these linguistic back-and-forths. Hook-up means different things in different situations, same with party. Same with many many more words.

    I agree. To me, however, it's clear from context what "party" means here.
