    The bloodhounds used the day after Jacob's abduction led investigators to the tire track, but would they not also have led them to the house or other locations on the property? I read they searched a two mile radius.

    You know, the one thing that struck me while re-reading a timeline for Jacob's case is how, just as in Joshua's case, authorities used every resource available and conducted an extensive search -- everywhere except for the one place they should have -- in Jacob's case, inside DR's house; in Joshua's case, inside the abbey.

    I've said this before == those are the first two places I would have gone. I just don't understand.
    I was born thinking outside of the box

    Probably due to those in charge thinking no way could these nice church going farmers with the teacher son, or the wonderful priests/monks at the abbey have had anything to do with such a sordid crime as kidnapping a child or a young adult male.

    We are learning now, in hindsight, how wrong we all were thinking that all priests were beyond reproach.

    So true. All of these crimes committed by those in the name of religion...it goes on and on at the expense of the innocent.

    Yep, I remember when I drove by there the first time, it just blew my mind how isolated this location is. I actually felt guilty for not realizing how truly unusual this case was until that moment.

    We know that there are tons of priests that could be the offender. We know that Gillespie went to the Wetterlings to "comfort " them.

    My understanding is that Gillespie was/is an R family friend.

    Do we know that Gillespie did the flyover pics of the R family farm?

    I wonder if LE has looked at any priests?

    I am sure they have and are. It would really be awful if they aren't.
