    We do not have a person of interest or suspect named in this case by law enforcement. Sleuthing anyone and posting on Websleuths is not allowed unless or until someone is named by law enforcement, this includes public sites showing addresses etc. This also includes family.

    We are a victim friendly site and this includes family and friends. No bashing of anyone. No sleuthing or discussing anyone in a suspect manner unless we have a suspect named.

    Rumor is not allowed, you can discuss and speculate about anything we already know thru law enforcement and main stream media.

    Rules Etiquette & Information

    Social Networks

    Regarding Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and other social networking or blog websites: Links may be used to direct posters to view something on a social networking page. But postings on social networking sites are not considered fact; they are rumor. Copying and pasting, or taking screen caps, directly from these pages is not allowed. Paraphrasing is okay. (Exception: If the Twitter or Facebook post belongs to a verified news station, it may be copied. But a link should still be provided.)

    Also, social networking pages may only be linked if they are directly related to a case, i.e. the victim or suspect. We don't want to post to someone's mother, brother, employer, milkman, or postal carrier just because they know the main player. We also NEVER link to minor's pages (unless they are the victim). And be sure that the page actually belongs to the person being discussed. Do not link to someone if you are not 100% sure it is the correct person. And if a social networking is set to private and you get in the back way, you may not post what you find. Private means private!


    Sex Offenders

    It is illegal to use the sex offender registry information to harass anyone. We would never condone that at Websleuths. However, it is okay if, when a child goes missing or is harmed, we look at the sex offenders in the area and post their information, along with maps to show how close they live to the victim. Never even hint at harassing anyone on the sex offenders list. Any posting here about a sex offender should always be within the law.

    Exclamation SC - Heather Elvis, 20, Myrtle Beach, 18 Dec 2013 - #6

    Attention: the police report can be discussed but that does not include sleuthing any of the names on that document or taking the conversation further than the basics (no identifying information!) in that report. Furthermore any inkling of discussion about redacted information or sleuthing persons that have not been named a suspect or person of interest in this case will result in an immediate time out.

    Police Report

    Thanks.

    The police report can be discussed, but NO NAMES, NO REDACTED INFORMATION, NO PERSONAL INFORMATION.

    No talking about wives, ex's, employment, etc. unless you have a link that is NOT RELATED to the police report.

    This is going to require restraint and cooperation on everyone's part. It if becomes too difficult, we will close the discussion.

    MSM released the report and they can't take it back now. But that doesn't mean this is a free for all. We need to be respectful of LE's investigation and unnamed POIs/suspect. Given that LE has NOT named ANY POI/Suspect - you may NOT consider anyone mentioned as such.

    If you have questions or concerns, pm me or Imamaze or any mod. Don't post it in the threads. And don't post anything you are unsure about. Use restraint and common sense, okay?

    TOs are being issued. Zero tolerance. Mind the rules, everybody.

    It seems as if that picture had been chosen on purpose.

    The picture data would have to be analyzed to verify when it was taken and by whom. Anyone of us could select a picture from our album that was taken two Christmases ago and send it to someone adding a caption, "Me on Christmas!".

    I'm sure LE has asked the date all relevant questions about the driving lesson and who took the picture including the method it arrived on TE's phone. At least I hope that they have.
    The EXIF information is there if it was a picture taken on a phone and sent to another phone. The picture can also be downloaded to a computer and you will still see time, date taken, probably GPS coordinates, type of camera, flash or not, etc. As others have said, there are plenty of apps out there that will tell you all that information. Once you modify something in Photoshop, that information changes and it absolutely tells you it was modified in Photoshop. Could you take a picture of a printout? Yes, but it looks like a picture of a picture. (it's hard to explain unless you know what you are looking for). Could you take a picture of a picture open on a computer? Yes, and that actually works better if you have a good camera and know how to do it. But it will have the EXIF data for the camera that takes THAT picture, and quite often the GPS location.

    Can you fudge some of this information when taking a picture on a phone? Yep, but you have to know how to do so, and most people don't.

    But if the picture has all it's EXIF data, and it confirms what HE's date said, taken perhaps by his camera with that information, with a location that was at the mall, done and done.

    According to Lt. Kegler, her cell phone hasn't been recovered. "I can't get into the location on where it gave anyone signal or anything like that. That information wasn't something we have established it was something provided to us," he said.

    Her mother said her date dropped her off at her house. Heather called her roommate to tell her how she had a great time. That is the last time anyone will admit to talking to her.

    --------------
    Bingo. Once again, it's the wording. The 3-3:41 time is the last time anyone was KNOWN to to be talking to her. That doesn't mean there isn't someone SUSPECTED of talking to her, just that that the roommate was the last person to be confirmed.

    It would show it had been edited. Even if you just open it, don't change anything and click save, it will show you have edited it.

    I took out just these two bits to respond to but first, you are more patient than I to type that up lol.

    1) I agree

    and 2) Yes, but the person could say "I just cropped it" or "I just adjusted color."

    We have seen media pick up on the SM aspect of lots of cases...why not this one? What are they all afraid of? Wish some non-local media would file a report about the police report coming out and the subsequent SM as a result. Too afraid of libel charges? Probably answered my own question...but I still think LE is making a hash of it, by acting like none of this is happening.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    I know we can't discuss what was removed and I won't. For the purpose of my questions, details are VERY irrelevant. I wasn't around when that happen and am slowly piecing that together and have never seen that occur. Can someone tell me, why information like that was or would be released and then pulled? If they are facts of the case then they would help solve her case. Is this common in cases to not release the true details, but rather the "scripted" version? I have personally and professionally dealt with cases and never seen this happen. I am not following how this helps find HE.

    BBM: Changed is changed. Then you have to explain why it isn't the original and it no longer has the same validation as the original picture. JMO, but I would never consider a picture without it's EXIF data as an original.
    Just the facts, Ma'am.

    The local media doesn't seem to be doing a very good job. I can excuse ignoring what happened on social media, because I feel like having a story about how so-and-so wrote this on FB, and then another person shared it with everyone on the FB page could be crossing some sort of line. But there's nothing about the police report, nothing about the attempt to ask the governor for help until after the event, etc. LE not holding a press conference or sending out a news release tells me they aren't being pressured (enough) by the media.
