I was wondering if MS had rear lights on her bike, reason being that if the bike suffered major damage to the back tire, it could be possible that the truck driver didn't even see until too late especially if she was on the road behind the Cajun dome ?
Thinking about the LE presence upthread.
Poop, new thread.
This is a very good guess of the type of truck this could be. Compare the Wheel wells and notice their "square shape" near the edges. The taillight looks about the same also, as well as the rear bumber area.
I understand this main picture is the one that should be the only one to consider, and I think I now better understand that the picture that has the truck going to the right is actually a sort of road, because this truck is in the right most lane. The other picture of the one going the other way, it is in the lane beside it and there are left turn arrows painted on the pavement in front of that one. It just seems bizarre to have a similar looking truck coming back from that same direction, but I suppose it could be a different truck heading to the left in the other picture. But in any case, GREAT JOB in trying to get an identification picture of this truck. I think you may have it with the inserted picture.
JMO of course.
I'll go with the single truck picture then. I'm not going to assume it was following Mickey... just going in the same direction. It was probably heading home. Going to surf around the area in that direction.
Can we get a link to the map on the next thread please?
I feel as if the tail lights are higher up in the back on the perp's truck..
They started making the tail lights lower in Chevy/Chevrolet Z71 Silverados in 2007 or so (based on a google image search for each year ex: 2007 chevy z71, etc.) but earlier models pre 2007 had them higher. So you might be right about the GMC models being more like the truck.
I have been reading everyone's post on here and trying to catch up on everything but this is my first post. There were only 2 white trucks. One with a bed cover and one without. The white truck with the bed cover which is not the one in the photo by Circle K appeared to be a mid size truck. It looks like a Colorado to me. This truck has been ruled out. The other white truck which is the Z-71 was the one by Circle K. There are 2 photos of this same truck which was both caught on camera by the Circle K. In one photo it was heading in the same direction as M. and in the other photo he was heading back towards the Circle K.
Those are two different trucks. That's what we've been trying to explain, that the other photo of the truck that is not in front of the Circle K is the same as the one in the second pic you reference. That truck has been ruled out. It's the one going in the same direction as MS that is still a VOI.

see the difference? both of these are the same year. Plus it was more popular with the GMC to have a crew cab as opposed to 4 doors like the Chevy.
Is there any way you could do a pic like that with a Dodge ram?
