    I think it's about a 15-20 min drive from downtown to this area. Depending, of course which way you go. It was a Wednesday, early afternoon, there wouldn't have been a lot of traffic then. Of course you also have to take into consideration how long it would have taken her to get to her car, assuming she went from WH to her car. It most likely would have been parked in the parking garage. I'm wondering, though, if the parking garage is the public place her car was found.
    There are police cameras downtown on many street corners, not sure if they are outside the WH though....if I get a chance I'll go look this weekend.

    New bit of info, plus conflicting information about the gunshot wound:

    "Powell allegedly shot Myrick after a dispute.

    She was found dead Tuesday along Simonton Bridge Road in Oconee. Officials told the GA Daily News that Myrick had a gunshot wound in the head."

    This is from Oconee Patch online newspaper:

    Myrick and Powell previously had known each other, but Weems didn't elaborate on the nature of the relationship. The two apparently had an altercation after she left work and went to Powell's home in Oconee County, he stated.

    "The case and the investigation does not end with the arrest," he said. "We still have some crime scene things we've got to do, some over evidence we've got to recover, and I don't want to go into why she would've been there."

    Investigators believe Powell put Myrick's SUV on a trailer and placed her body at the side of Simonton Bridge Road before dumping the vehicle in the parking lot of Lowe's, he said.

    None of this sounds very smart. He pulled her car on a trailer to the Lowe's parking lot to dump it? Hello, cameras! I bet Lowe's has some nice surveillance footage of the bad guy doing this, of the bad guy's car, maybe even his license plate #. Der.

    He was arrested for theft in Nov 2011, as well: http://georgia.arrests.org/Arrests/T...owell_8447234/

    Long-time scumbag, I would assume.

    "Meantime, investigators found her white GMC Jimmy SUV Wednesday night in the parking lot of Lowe's on Lexington Road in Athens. They had gone to store to meet someone from another agency and spotted the SUV, he said."

    "We were able to obtain security footage from several locations and backtrack from there," said Weems. "That's how we determined the make and model of the [truck] that was released on Friday."

    Yes, that statement from LE does kind of beg the question, doesn't it??

    Totally Agree. I'm from this area too and I agree it would only take 10 to 15 minutes max this time of year at that time in the AM....

    New article detailing the fantastic work by the Oconee County Sheriff's Office (and by alert citizens who turned in tips)!
    http://onlineathens.com/local-news/2...killer-suspect

    a few snippets from the article:

    On Friday afternoon, a photograph of a pickup truck similar to one then being sought in connection with Myrick’s death was posted on the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook page. “Within 10 minutes of getting the picture out on Friday, we were getting tips,” Chief Deputy Lee Weems said Monday.

    Authorities say Myrick went to Powell’s home, but they won’t disclose why they think she was there and what led to the fatal shooting.

    Powell’s only other known arrest in Oconee County came in March, when he was charged with shoplifting for allegedly trying to steal steaks at Bell’s grocery, authorities said.

    Waffle Houses are always stand alone buildings and I believe they only have 5 interior cameras each. One may cover the front door but they wouldn't be covering the whole parking lot that is for darn sure.

    Sonya, they normally are, but I *believe* she was working at the very new one in downtown athens .. Pic here ...
    http://onlineathens.com/local-news/2...opens-downtown
    It is along a strip of stores, with no parking lot like a normal one. Just on street parking and the parking deck. She probably parked in the deck. ( which probably has additional video too).

    Glad they made a quick arrest, here. They had three counties involved with where she lived, where she worked, and where she was found. Facebook tipsters rock!

    Moo

    ETA: I see from the article that a few restaurants are there and on the bottom level of the parking deck.

    Thank goodness they nabbed the guy. I still can't get over how quickly it all went down. Within 90 minutes, he killed Myrick, disposed of her body, and hitched up a trailer to move her car. That's some fast thinking for a 78 year old. Makes me wonder if he planned it.

    This is not accurate, Waffle Houses are not ALWAYS stand alone buildings! The Waffle House that Misty worked at was located in Downtown Athens, it is NOT a stand alone Waffle House and it has no parking lot of it's own. The cameras that I mentioned are cameras that the city has on the sidewalk areas downtown, not Waffle House cameras.

    I think a regular customer had an issue with her of some kind. Maybe he stalked her even; we don't know yet. But I suspect this because of the timeline and much more imo

    Hitching up the trailer to move her car is the part that I just can't figure out. Who would go to that extent to hitch up a trailer (unless this was pre-planned), when they could just drive the car to some unknown spot (without Lowe's cameras).
