    Does anybody happen to know if the alleged cell phone ping of JR's cell phone between 3 and 4 am june 3rd on a Martinsville cell tower tower is legit? Or is it just a rumor that has become quasi-fact? I have heard it from very early on in this case, including this forum and PT/HT/TG comments section. I just never heard if there was an actual coroboration or if that was just some pie in the sky fact-less rumor that people have ran with? I'm sure most of you have heard about that and we have covered cell phone ping's etc. several times. I just never got a straight answer on the JR cell ping info that has been flying around for the past 9 months. Any info is appreciated, thanks.

    As far as I know, no cell phone info has been made public by any reliable source, i.e. LE or the media via LE. I think that a reporter or two may have posted something on a blog about pings, but again, as far as I know, nothing official has ever been said about any pings, from any phones.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    Have we ever determined what vehicles JR or his guest may have had access to June 2nd 3rd and 4th? I know JR's vehicle was searched etc, but that is the last vehicle I would expect him to use to commit a major crime in. I dont think that he lacked common sense, but he cant have covered all his bases and I'm looking for where he may have slipped! The cell ping info is obviously a huge tool for LE and I am hoping there is more than that. I still believe that LE actually has alot to work with in this case, but obviously lacks a body and enough tangible cork-board type evidence to really turn the heat up. It's my opinion that if LE didn't have alot of info in this case they would be making more overtures and public pleas for information as they did in the infancy of this case.

    I agree. The pleas for information are only from the Spierer's to the person(s) responsible.
    There was a rumor that JR's car was not available (in the shop?) that night, but I've never seen that information in the mainstream media. There are so many questions about this case that a reporter at the IDS or HT could address. The fact that those questions have NOT been answered in the MSM makes me think that 1) LE is not releasing ANY information that could prejudice a jury and 2) LE may have asked the local media to stop investigating.

    I'm pretty sure the rumor came from here, in a post that has since been removed. I can't remember who posted it though. I believe the poster claimed they heard it from someone involved in the search, but that was never verified..? I don't think I ever read this in an MSM article. Maybe someone else can correct me if I'm wrong.

    Jacobite also posted about the ping with the added caveat that weather conditions IIRC could've caused a ping from that tower. IOW it was inconclusive.

    But I have no idea where Jacobite got that info. I don't know exactly how the technology works but I'm skeptical that weather conditions would force a Martinsville ping if the Bloomington tower(s) were working properly considering JR should be in downtown Bloomington at that time and not just in the Bloomington area.

    Unless something official is said then I remain skeptical of the whole idea of a Martinsville ping being anything but rumors. Only if something like Jacobite said about weather conditions actually making it inconclusive would I see a scenario where LE would have a ping that discredits a POI's alibi and them not use it like a jackhammer. And then I wonder about how likely weather conditions could cause something like that considering JR is supposed to have been downtown.... an area that I assume is very well covered with cell service.

    I'd like to hear more on the technical end of how possible that is.

    I found this site to show cell phone towers that are registered with FCC. Put in city and state and it will show where they are located.

    http://www.cellreception.com/towers/

    Without knowing who JR's cell service is with, don't know how we would know which tower was used. I have read that not all cell services share towers.

    I heard about the ping and so did another person on this forum. We think our source was the same but the person was not willing to talk about it again. It could be because it is indeed a rumor or the person was asked not to speak about it again. The source is in a position to be privy to information, so I believed it for a while. But I have long since closed that file and now believe it to be a rumor.

    I came across this video several days and learned something extremely interesting. Blair says she never met CR. The news woman asks Blair if she ever heard Lauren mention CR before. Blair answers, "No." Blair was Lauren's roommate (not sure if past or at the time) and childhood friend since they were 9 years of age!

    I believe without much hesitation that if Lauren had any designs on CR she would have shared this with Blair. For me, this clears Lauren of having any romantic interest in CR and makes her motivation for being with him as a source of party favors. This is a huge shift for me.

    Thanks so much for posting that link. Though I've seen it before I found some really interesting information from that video. While the video itself, didn't shed any new light for me the comments did!!! Page 3 of comments by rokinuplate 39.202371, -86.391399.

    After doing research it became apparent that these are coordinates. For example, the coordinates for the city of Bloomington, IN are 399′44″N 8631′45″W. While I'm not sure how his #'s related to the degrees, feet, inches, but I tried a formula and my results were a bit astonishing.

    North Moon Road about 20 miles North of Bloomington, very close to Van Buskirk Cemetery, but also, located near what looks like a body of water, river to be exact.

    Here are map directions via google.

    I went to googlemaps.com and put in the coordinates from rokinuplate minus the comma and this is what I got:

    9474-9540 E Baby Creek Rd
    Bloomington, IN 47408 0.4 mi NW

    It appears to go around a body of water.

    After looking at a different map up close I am not sure there is any body of water along this road. Maybe someone can verify if there is water along this road.
