    I think it's 224 St. Landry

I know it does insurance wise. Does La have mandatory insurance? Might not be a point, because if it's financed the driver would have to have insurance on it. If you see one on the street though the only way to tell is by the chrome accessories or LT/LTZ will be on the lower right of the tailgate.
    Yes, mandatory insurance...but I'm not sure it will narrow down the search *that* much. Most of the ones I've seen have had black and not chrome.

    If someone was following me, it would be logical to go down Brashear, beacause of the traffic barriers. She could have easily biked through them and a truck couldn't.

    We have a Silverado crew cab but it's red, not white. And, the reason we have it is b/c it was a gift! And you hit the nail on the head about the other things--exept not EVEN a potted plant. I'm no gardener.

    On google maps, I see what appear to be houses on either side of Brashear at St. Landry. I can't believe no one would have seen/heard something if that's where it happened. I still think she tried to escape through the parking lot on the right and cut over to Azalea. That's what I would have done if I thought someone was following me there.

    Just out of curiosity...does anyone know her intoxication level, if any, that night? Not that it matters much because she isn't with her family. I was just curious about ability to bike.

    But wouldn't that kind of an accident leave a lot of tiny evidence spread out? The plastic light covers from the bike would have shattered all over the pavement, for example. And it would have been pretty loud too. It is hard to imagine that a deadly accident would not have left forensic evidence that wouldn't have been found already. imo

    I don't think a drunk or panicked driver would be able to scoop up every single shard or piece of evidence before driving off.

    eta: But I do think an experienced predator could do a quiet, clean bump and run.

    Whoever talked about bloodhounds is 100% correct.

    They need to block those streets - Brashear - St.Landry, maybe others? RIGHT AWAY, before the next rain (has only rained once since then) and sniff out if there was a point she hit the ground.

    They better hurry; rain chances tomorrow. I hear thunder outside right now.
    Lots of elderly and college kid. The former may not hear well and the latter may not notice or care much when it comes to street noises.

    I don't buy into the whole "she knew she was being followed" assumption or idea. For one, I follow lots of people. All the time. And women (sorry, no offense intended) are just not observant at all of whats going on around or behind them. Again, no offense. Just statistics :P

    Second, from camera A to camera B and the time it took her according to the police, she was traveling at an average speed.

    Third, in the photo of her she doesn't appear to be hauling ass and riding for her life. She looks to be casually riding by.

    Fourth, if she thought someone was following her she most likely would've just turned into the parking lot where there were lights and people around.

    Yes they are. That means it is an LT. The LTZ has the chrome mirrors/handles and other goodies.

    I'll probably get slapped for this... but for the first time I'm doing some street-view work does any know off the top of their head the address of the camera that last saw Mickey? I thought there was one more after Circle K?

    Thanks...

    She was not drinking that night, but she MIGHT have smoked a little pot, according to some speculation. She did have a pot pipe in her backpack, apparently.

    It's not just there....you can't swing a stick in my neighborhood here in Dallas Ft. Worth without hitting one. White is the only vehicle color that doesn't bug me sooner or later...

    Google will tell you that white is the highest selling pickup color so it's really not that astonishing.

    Unless they were coming right up behind you and blocking you from making that left onto Brashear. Then your only choice would be the parking lot to the right (LUS I think?) and cut over to Azalea.

    I don't think she knew she was being followed either. I am just stumped as to why she'd change her normal route all of a sudden.

    Just pulled up the Whiskey Bay camera, there is a white truck there now with a few people moving around it. But the camera feed immediately goes out with "feed temporarily unavailable" message. I have to keep reloading but I then I lose it again. But then again, there are probably 20+ white trucks there everyday.

    Can anyone say whether the ONE truck is dwfinately without a doubt a z71?

    They had the wrong type of car at first. Got the right one and it panned out. So IF they have the wrong make and model of the truck that dwfinately hurts progress here.

    I keep saying the truck looks like a Dodge ram quad cab. IS ANYONE REALLY WILLING TO BETMONEY THAT IT IS NOT?

    Just having checked out Brashear on Street-View, those houses are right up on the curb with old thin windows, I have a hard time believing anything went down on at least the upper half of Brashear near St. Landry without someone hearing something.

    LOL, I don't get it either. I guess the white is good in the heat. But is everyone hauling stuff around???

    Where was it that we heard reports of a scream?

    A drunk driver could have clipped her just enough to spill the bike and fatally injure her in the headlong fall. There wouldn't necessarily be a lot of debris - but a dog SHOULD be able to alert on it if she hit the ground.
