    She could be restrained in someones camp, and the suspect feels comfortable enough to leave her there so he can return to "the city", work, family etc....
    I don't know, I'm grasping here.
    Didn't see your post before I posted basically the same thought. Glad I'm not the only one thinking that scenario.
    Everyone sees who you appear to be ... few really know who you are.

    I have asked myself that a million times. If it was an accidental hit- why not leave her and run? (even more importantly- why not call for help!!!!) If the perp had warrants, susp. license, was drunk/high, and all the other things- I guess I can see why they ran.. But I just can't understand the taking her and the bike and dumping them into the basin. That seems so... Irrational to me.

    I don't get it.
    And don't forget the scores of people who interrupt threads to ask things like, "Have the police thought to check her phone records?" or "Which state is Lafayette located in?"

    Power tools might be out, too. Too much noise.

    So how difficult would it be to cut up a bike like this with an ordinary hacksaw insde you living room?
    Sure would leave a lot of evidence. Can you imagine cleaning up all those metal splinters?

    We know Mickey was not feeling well the night she disappeared. Not sure if she was getting sick, still experiencing some hangover effects from the previous night (which I have always doubted), or just tired from being out late a couple nights in a row. Whatever the reason, this could have effected her actions and reactions while biking.

    This thought is what has discounted my accidental hit and grab belief. But I just keep going back to it, I can really see it happening.

    If you're not a cyclist, you don't know anything about bikes. It wouldn't matter if Mickey was on a Schwinn Madison or a bike from the '70s she got for $5 at Goodwill.

    Not a lot of people cycle in Lafayette as a means of transportation. It's not very bike/walker friendly (consistently ranked horribly in both).

    Let's say an accident did happen, and it was the "perfect accident." She fell down, hit her head, and died. The driver is there freaking out. He has a lot to lose. It's a girl on a bike. In the middle of the night. No one saw, and maybe no one will miss her?

    If that was his thought, boy was he wrong.

    Just a kinda random question, but do people tend to leave their keys in their boats (at their own docks in the water) down around certain local areas down there?
    I have personally spent a lot of time at a lake, no where near that area, where if I ever needed to "borrow" a boat in an emergency, I could. It just got me thinking.

    But, if drunk, it may seem rational. The irrational part is, after he comes down off whatever the hello he was on, him sitting back and allowing all these searches to go on and on, without saying anything.........hold that thought, I think people need to be made aware, that if they know someone with a Z 71, and he seems to be drinking more, unwilling to talk about what happened to Mickey, they need to call LE. This person HAS to be going through this in his head constantly. Sorry, I was writing there and it just changed my thought process lol, dead center.

    I'm not sure about that. Tired, yes. I don't know of anyone who's feeling under the weather deliberately eating Taco Bell food. And driving to get it, no less. I don't buy the not feeling well angle.

    Mickey was taken on an early Saturday morning, a time when many camp sites become busy with weekenders. Unless someone had a fairly secluded camp, I would think that scenario (taken to a camp along the river) might not be as likely as others.

    I agree. Maybe by someone who was watching & waiting specifically for her or maybe MS was in the wrong place/wrong time.

    If she was unconscious at 3:00 AM, some people may not have noticed.

    But this is so contrary to what we have been told by natives. We have been told that there is a huge cycling community and they are very close. Bikers are seen regularly traveling to and from school, work, clubs and home.
