Sorry about all the typos
Have to admit I am more than a bit jealous of the life they had there (altho they didn't stay together).
Pardon my generalization but I don't attribute great intelligence or critical thinking to someone who would grab a girl off the street at 2 am.
ETA - to clarify. I meant - why take the bike, too. Seems like risky move. Why not just leave it? Maybe he did?
I am also quite surprised we have not seen an interview with the fishermen that called in the bike tip...
Yes Crocus and many of those volunteers (like my daughter) don't even know Mickey or her family. They just want to help. They are searching in some pretty bad conditions, tall weeds, forest, poison ivy and this terrible heat and many of them just keep going back to volunteer. My daughter says it becomes personal once you are involved and you just don't want to give up searching.
Just my opinion, of course.
Pardon me for not being familiar with the case, but was the bicycle reported to have any damage to it? Did i miss any info about it's condition? tia

Looking at Google Earth at the above coordinates, I see a problem with the pull-over-and-dump scenario. Look at the bridge as it crosses the river. That's where it gets very narrow, with no shoulder to pull over! Remember how many bad wrecks happen on that bridge? Got stuck once for 6 hours a few years back after two trucks tangled at the top.
To have dumped the bike so it landed under the bridgel, the perp would had to have stopped IN the traffic lane - liable to be rear-ended at any second by traffic coming from behind.
Maybe the perp had to walk it under the bridge after all. After all, look at the map - the trees are cleared. He could have carried - or driven - the bike back under the bridge.
Remembering how there is absolutely no shoulder there - just two lanes - how could he have stopped to throw the bike over?!
Well, I just saw the Shunick case on national FoxNews. But no mention of the bike. Must have been an old report.
Turkey season is over. What is the next or ongoing hunting season and for what would there be hunters going out for?
I was reading that birders use the Achafalaya Basin as a great place to watch the birdies.
