    For more info about Fred Radtke aka The Grey Ghost, please watch this short video below. He was part of Operation Clean Sweep post Katrina, cleaning up gang-related graffiti. His efforts are admirable, but NOT in the case of tearing down Mickey posters. Perhaps he is OCD.

    As a nonbeliever, I relied on believers' input. If y'all tell me you'd have been gone too if The Rapture took Mickey, I respect that.

    Nonbeliever doesn't have to mean anti-believer ;-)

    I think we'd have to factor in the speed and weight of both objects and point of impact using an equation I would never understand.


    Thanks! Had a broken femur and a concussion. Only lasting effect is that I won't cross the street when the hand is flashing!!

    That's an interesting take. Maybe tidying walls and posts is something he can't stop doing. He was repeatedly wiping the same spot on that sign, which is an indicator of obsessive behavior.

One would have to allow for forward impact of bike and seperation of Mickey from the bike while truck is in motion. Not enough distance in pics as we know the truck didn't raise it front end like a drag car and sit down on her.
    It's important to note that if she wasn't stopped (and her posture in the picture definitely looks to me like she's pedaling) then a reasonable estimate of her speed would be 15 miles per hour. That means she would be travelling 22 feet every second. So in a second she would have moved well out of the picture.

    I'm getting so aggravated reading the same theories about DWTs and bikes underneath them and, and, and. This isn't directed at any of you, of course... we're all just trying to help. It's just infuriating that no matter how much we want her to come home and to find out what happened, we have absolutely no information to go on. Enough already!
    It's kinda weird that no information has been released about the bike or anything.

    If we had anything else, maybe we could obsess about the Blasted Bike Rim or the Flippin Phone Records.

    I hope her family doesn't have to live in permanent limbo.

    He can stop. There are medication specifically approved for OCD and effective in treating it. He likely chooses to not take them.

    I remember thinking that if all of the time stamps were accurate, she was moving at a pretty good clip.

    I'm kinda liking the 'dropped something' theory today.

    I have to wonder how many, if any of these times are right.

    BW said they left Artmosphere at 12:44 (to go about a mile to his house on Ryan).
    They were on video at TB at 1:24. (a 5 min drive from Ryan St.)
    Mickey left Ryan St at 1:44?

    Mickey was hungry and not feeling well and it took about 35 minutes to bike 0.9 miles, lock bikes and get in the car?

    Maybe TB time is wrong. Or else BW is wrong or the video stills.Or they sat around hungry for a little while for some reason before they left to get food.

    I have family members with OCD. It's not always controllable.

    Maybe it's much worse and this behavior is his *controlled*.

    Not sure if it's already been posted, but I noticed that there's a very short (about 2 seconds) video of Mickey now posted on the findmickeynow FB page.

    JMO but head lights are clearly on. I kinda doubt driver turned on the lights after running over her, if thats what happened.

    My best guess is that she heard the truck. LE says it was following her. You have firsthand knowledge about what that rig sounds like. So do I. You'd hear it before you saw it. And she appears stationary after riding like a bat out of hell for 1 minute. She'd either be thinking about hiding in the Circle K, or getting her phone, IMO. It's possible she had already dismounted to let the truck pass, and the truck struck the bike, but merely knocked her off balance. If she didn't have headphones on the chances are strong she heard this beast a -comin, and was taking evasive action. The tail lights all seem to be on, hard to tell if it includes the white reverse light. If the truck was still moving, I don't think we'd be able to tell about the style of wheel. We can't see so much wheel detail in the 'other way' truck, sometimes described as a truck van.

    Maybe the posters that were taken down were torn, wet, damaged...
    Just my opinion, of course.
