10 days since last LPD site update.
Totally off topic but I remember awhile ago someone saying it was unsafe to hitchhike and someone saying that there was a guy travelling around writing a book about it. I believe that guy was probably Raymond Dolin, who was writing "The Kindness of America."
He got shot by a random passerby in Montana. How ironic.
I work in print and hires graphis. My experience with graphics is like this...
We print catalogues for knitting companies. If a photo of a sweater doesn't match the colour of the wool, then I would colour correct the sweater to match.
We also print catalogues for car companies. If I'm given an image that isn't a high enough resolution, I might manipulate it to look cleaner and clearer. If I manipulated an image of a truck until it looked like Scooby-Doo was in the back seat, or a Jimi Hendrix poster was in the bed, or a girl on a bike was under the wheels, well I'd probably lose my job. But I bet the customer would supply an new image to be used!
To end this truck debate yet again, look at the two arguments using the logic of Occam's razor. Which argument has less assumptions?
Argument A (Under the truck)
Fact: Some sort of light under the truck. It's source is arguable
Fact: .....there are no other facts for this argument
Argument B (Not under the truck)
Fact: Physics says she's not
Fact: UV wand and luminol tests show no blood or bodily fluids in that spot
Fact: Highly reflective fresh pavement in said spot
Fact: The image is of poor and pixelated quality
Fact: LE has seen the video
Fact: Neither LE or the family have said Mickey was run over in said video
Fact: LE and/or the family would be facing prosecution if they were aware of Mickey being run over and didn't inform the public
Now, which of the two arguments has more facts in it's favor and uses the least amount of assumptions?
With Adalla saying he's not focused on the DWT, it's possible the driver of the DWT isn't the perp- just wanted for questioning. I did stumble across this article:
If there's a serial killer, this would explain being more easily approached and no sign of trouble. Yes, it mentions a white car and not a white truck, however, we don't know if the DWT is the perp. Bundy killed in Colorado, Washington, Utah, and Florida and it took a while to link them. He also used the fake cop routine successfully.
Just a thought.

When did the white truck, LE escort thing going on? I'll go back and listen to the scanner archives
Ok... closing thread in one minute, please continue here...

Though I think we can all agree at this point, some of what the LE has released has been misinformation. Figuring out what is the real deal from what isn't has occupied many of us for weeks, while not focusing on the facts the LE isn't releasing. Then again, they may have nothing to release. That is the scariest possibility of all.
