I can't get editing to scroll down on my phone- please ignore the grammar errors in my previous post. And I gotta learn to proofread!
Just a little tip that my mom told me a long time ago. I believe she took a self defense class and the police man showed them a picture of a city street and a picture of a creepy desolate forest. Where would you rather die? He told them that if someone ever tries to threaten you with a gun or knife and make you go with them, you fight and tell them they'll just have to shoot or stab you right there in the street or parking lot. You have a better chance of survival, being found, and LE catching the perp.
It certainly would have helped Mickey.
chicken fried...going by the terrain under the bridge, do you think investigators might have been able to detect tire tracks, footprints?
So Mickey had finished her semester at school, correct?
I ask this as the perp could be a student that is finished also and is on their way home to another state by now.
In the photo of the overpass where Mickey's bike was found is a paved surface road. What makes you think the perp didn't drive in on that road? he didn't necessarily have to come from I-10. Looking at the map, I see all kinds of roads in there.
Ok, I've read Every. Single. Post. on these boards here since this happened and heard many theories but I am still stuck like glue on my initial theory.
I think it's possible the car and the white truck were working in tandem.
I see them both as predator sharks. The pond they're initially swimming in is over there near 100 Ryan Street. Watching. Waiting. It's their home pond and they know it real well. They know there's an especially appealing potential prey that rides a bike many times late at night, with flashing lights on it. Heck, they could have both been parked at that old Langlinais grocery across Congress Street from Ryan when she took off.
I think they (or just one of them) followed her and abducted her. They didn't have to take the exact route; they could have taken Congress up to University knowing they would intersect at some point. No goods, up to no good, at 2 am in the morning, waiting for marks. Local. No nefarious serial killer involved, just really bad actors that live in the area.
Again, I fall back on Occam's Razor. She was in proximity to a really really bad area of town right across Congress Street from Ryan Street. An area where people watch, a lot. Chicken Fried, I'd like your take on this, you know the area.
I hope I don't offend anyone, but there is a very twisted side to anime, and a certain violent pornographic element. My cousin was into anime and he was an odd duck. If I were to pick between the carnys and the amine folk for a stranger abduction, I pick anime every time.
Sorry, this is in regards to the Pat Brown/JVM "find the bike" statement.

It may have already been mentioned...
It is always possible that someone found the bike abandoned and stole it... then panicked when they realized who it was connected to.
Especially if the person who took it already had a criminal history which might make them look suspicious.
We had a case in Utah where a girl disappeared on her bike.
They did not know where she went because they couldn't find her bike.
Ultimately someone came forward and said they had taken the bike after finding it abandoned at a hiking spot.
Instead of calling to report an abandoned bike... they stole it. They ultimately came forward and searches were done in the area.
She was found deceased from a fall.
It was a simple hiking accident... but she didn't die instantly.
Had those people not taken her bike... she may have been found alive.
Obviously Mickey didn't go for a hike...
But if she was abducted and her bike WAS left... it's possible someone unconnected stole it before she was reported missing.
Mickey's story first aired on JVM on May 22. You'll find Pat Brown's comments in-text.
I agree, anime is some weird carp.
As far as roads... yes.... little ones. He could have come all the way down from Krotz Springs on the levee road (975) on the east of the river. He also could have taken 105 on the west side. What he couldn't have done very easily, without risk, is to stop on I-10 and pitch it over. As said upthread, he could have done it at 3 a.m. But maybe it wasn't 3 a.m. Any other time, he gets a semi up his butt if he stops there.
