i think it's the bump and snatch (faking an accident) that people are considering "clever"
this way, he can possibly get the girl in his car and take her from there. if she declines, then he moves on and just pretends it was an accident.
i guess it's more "clever" than a home invasion (alarm systems, neighbors, dogs, possible weapons in the home)
THAT is what upsets me. I can't understand why they don't come out and simply reassure the public that they are working on this. We need a pep talk. I feel like it's cold not reassuring the public for such a long time. Also, i feel like their words could stir up thinking caps and eyes again. She seems totally forgotten in Baton Rouge, which is only 20 miles East of Whiskey Bay and is a college town. Of course the college girls here are still riding their bikes around in the dark. I almost want to roll down my window and say, "Honey, your daddy would not like seeing you riding around in the dark. Now get your lil' hiney home, ok?!"
Gary Ridgway, whose IQ was in the low 80's, yet amassed a high number of victims; convicted of 49, confessed to least 71, presumed to be 90+. He was thought to be idiot savant by LE and was active for over two decades. He was eventually identified & arrested 11/2001 due to dna upgrades, but was a suspect 2 decades earlier.
The NC victim's successful escape reminds me of a prior rape/murder attempt;
John Albert Gardner III (CA), convicted rapist/murderer of teenagers Chelsea King & Amber Dubois, attempted to rape Candice Moncayo, whose father was a kick boxing champion. She was able to thwart the rape attempt by an elbow to his chin.
You know a case has gone cold if the current thread was started five days ago and has 1433 posts but there's no real need to start a new one.

The dogs picked up no scent of Mickey whatsoever correct?
While I am on this thought process did LE ever state that they had video of Mickey leaving Artmosphere?
I don't know if we were told about any results from dogs? Just that they were used? does anyone know of a link...I will look...
Just my opinion, of course.
Craft also said they have picked up several items of potential evidence, but so far, none of those seems to be connected to the case. He also confirmed that her cell phone was turned off and that police are not able to get any information about her location using that avenue.
“It’s the type of cell phone that, when you cut it off, you can’t ping it,” Craft said.<<
I don't know that is why when I get stuck in a case I go back to the beginning.
If you look at many of my posts throughout this case the only thing truly confirmed that I am aware of is that MS is missing.
So I am asking this group of people and locals to correct me if I am wrong as the information usually comes from LE. In this case the friends/family have been the major source of information.
LE has given ONE press conference and that was regarding the bike.
Just my opinion, of course.
No they are not perfect. There was discussion regarding dogs at BW's early on.
Like many have stated here if they go missing to let everyone here know as at least there would be a huge group of people looking for them. I agree with those statements.
That is why I am asking the questions I have been. The family went to social networking immediately which got the word out quickly. Like I said when I am stuck or have felt like I have throughout this case that I am missing a number of pieces to the puzzle I go back to the beginning.
