CA - Bryce Laspisa, 19, Castaic-Timeline and Media Thread **NO DISCUSSION**
Time lines (From Seajay)

The report then says that the family has a photo taken of him that afternoon in which he appears happy.
8/27 (Tues.) - Bryce's girlfriend notes that he is acting weird and he then admits he took some ADHD medication.
8/28 (Wed.) The next day, the following occurs:
10:00 p.m. - Wednesday - Bryce reportedly tries to break up with his girlfriend. Friends, concerned about his behavior, take away his car keys.
10:30 p.m. Wednesday - Karen Laspisa tells the friends, by phone, to return the keys to her son after she speaks to him. He tells her: “I have a lot to talk to you about.”
11:30 p.m. Wednesday - Bryce Laspisa leaves Chico.
9:00 a.m. Thursday - Bryce runs out of gas near the Buttonwillow Rest Area, west of Bakersfield.
12:00 p.m. Thursday - a roadside assistance serviceman named Christian delivers three gallons of gasoline to Bryce, according to a $20 credit card purchase for the fuel. “He’s not answering his phone (at this time),” his mother said.
12:30 p.m. Thursday - Karen Laspisa calls serviceman Christian and asks about her son. He tells her he appears “OK” but adds: “His eyes look a little red.” Bryce does not answer his cell phone.
9:00 p.m. Thursday - responding to a call from the mother - CHP officers stop and search Bryce’s car spotted on Lagoon Drive in Buttonwillow. Some reports say they searched for drugs or alcohol but found none. The mom told John and Ken that the police spent 20 minutes with her son.
Shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday - Karen speaks to her son on the phone and asks: “What are you doing?” His response, she said, is: “I’m going to hang with friends later.”
11:00 p.m. Thursday - Bryce tells his mother he’s buying a beverage at a gas station. A purchase is made for $1.71, she said.
Shortly after midnight Thursday - “He tells me he’s on the I-5 south but he’s telling me nothing,” she said.
As per Uncle dragracerz-Bryce bought $39 worth of gas at the Valero Station on Lagoon Drive in Buttonwillow.
8/30 - (Fri.)
1:50 a.m. Friday - Bryce, by phone, tells the mother that he “had detoured off I-5 but was back on the I-5.”
2:08 a.m. Friday - Karen Laspisa talks to her son for the last time. He tells her his GPS tells him he will arrive in Laguna Niguel in three hours and 25 minutes. “He told me ‘I got off the I-5 and I’m in a suburban area. I’m going to sleep in my car.’”
2:08 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. Friday - Bryce makes three trips to the crash site – the last trip ending with the crash, according to what his mother described as surveillance footage captured by cameras set up near Castaic Lake.
5:30 a.m. Friday - CHP officers locate his overturned SUV on a paved access road that leads to the Castaic Lake Main Boat ramp, at the bottom of a 15-foot ravine, on its side, with its rear window smashed. Although he left the valuables – laptop, cell phone and wallet – a duffle bag is found at the rear of the car and zipped open, prompting investigators to suspect he took something from it. He walked back from his car to a nearby lake after the crash, it appears.
9/4/13 (Wed.) - A burning body is found in the Lake Castaic area.
Here is a paraphrased timeline from the article cited in my previous post. Notice that the beginning of the timeline does not make sense and may be a typo.
Announces he is breaking up with GF.
Mother offers to fly up. He declined says he has "a lot to talk about" with mother.
Left Sierra College to go home
Called roadside assistance from Buttonwillow. (1.5 hours is impossible to travel such distance)
Roadside assistance checks him at mother's request. Is fine, but eyes are a little red.
Roadside assistance (some other articles say Kern County PD) checked again. He is now 5 miles away from the rest stop after having been there for 10 hours.
"I'm just chilling. I'm going to hang with friends later."
Buys a drink from a Shell gas station near Buttonwillow (he is still there)
No answer to call.
Answered. Says there are no lights and cannot see any signs.
Tells mother he is pulling off I-5 to sleep.
Fri Some time 4:20am - 5:15am
Bryce's car is in an accident.
CHP asks parents if their car was stolen.
911 call received about brush fire 3 miles north of Lake Hughes Rd.
Firefighters reach the fire and discover a burning body.Thursday 9:am Bryce ran out of gas and called roadside assistance from the Buttonwillow Rest Area west of Bakersfield, a fact confirmed by the credit card company.
Thursday 12pm a roadside assistance serviceman named Christian delivers three gallons of gasoline to Bryce, according to a $20 credit card purchase for the fuel. “He’s not answering his phone (at this time),” his mother said.
Thursday 12:30pm Karen Laspisa calls serviceman Christian and asks about her son. He tells her he appears “OK” but adds: “His eyes look a little red.” Bryce does not answer his cell phone.
Thursday 9pm responding to a call from the mother, CHP officers stop and search Bryce’s car spotted on Lagoon Drive in Buttonwillow. “Something happened in the whole 10 hours he was around there,” she said. This may be the time at which he was considered missing with police first but then taken off that list.
Thursday 10pm Karen speaks to her son on the phone and asks: “What are you doing?” His response, she said, is: “I’m going to hang with friends later.” Thirty minutes later, he bought a $1.71 beverage from a Shell gas station near Buttonwillow exit on the corner of Tracey Ave and Lagoon Dr. According to Uncle dragracerz he also bought $39 worth of gas at a Valero Gas station.
*Poster Note: My post should have stated that the gas station he got gas at was near the rest stop, not the truck stop. His mom said it was the Oasis Valero (not the Shell, which is where he got the drink and is also by the truck stop) that he put gas in his car at 12:30pm on Thursday and it was 5 miles away from where the police found him by the truck stop. She stated that several hours after he got the 3 gallons of gas the man who brought him the gas went back to check on him and he was in the same location, which means that he got gas and then went back to the same spot at the rest stop.
Friday 12:30 am parents tried calling him but got no answer
Friday 1:50am Bryce’s parents reached him and he had said he was driving on the I-5 but could not see any signs, she said.
Friday 2:08 am last call to parents, was tired and going to pullover to rest. “He told me ‘I got off the I-5 and I’m in a suburban area. I’m going to sleep in my car,’” said Karen Laspisa (mother) “I told him to call me when he got up the next morning.”
He never called
Between 2:08 a.m. and 5 a.m. Friday - Bryce makes three trips to the crash site – the last trip ending with the crash, according to what his mother described as surveillance footage captured by cameras set up near Castaic Lake.
The crash had to happen between 4:20 a.m. and 5:15 a.m, It had gone down a 15-foot ravine nose first and landed on the passenger side. Bryce (or someone) has used an emergency tool to break the back window
Friday 5:30 am officers of the California Highway Patrol found his 2003 Toyota Highlander SUV on its side.Just the facts, Ma'am.

The original timeline needs to be modified. Mom states (at approximately 8 minutes 50 seconds into the below KFI interview) that his credit card records state he purchased gas at 12:30pm on Thursday at the Oasis Valero Gas Station in Buttonwillow (which, she states, is 5 miles away from the truck stop/Lagoon Drive area.)

Attached is the updated timeline. Supporting links, where available, are also included.
It made most sense to me to publish it as a pdf as you all would be able to copy data if you so desire. As a pdf, you will have to either choose to open it or save it to your hard drive, both options use Adobe Reader.
Please let me know of any additions/deletions/modifications, and/or format/posting suggestions as to how it might be easier for you all to view/use. Thx!MOO

Said to be SUV crash site at Castiac Lake after SUV was removed:
Last edited by Quester; 10-07-2013 at 02:16 PM. Reason: Now not sure if this was actual crash site or bad reporting.
