Nothing new, again.
Still no news....still no Jodi.
Bumping for Jodi
Nothing new again today.
The geese are flying overhead. Summer is over. Still no sign of Jodi.
Bumping for Jodi.
"Margaret, are you grieving
Over Goldengrove unleaving?
Leaves, like the things of man, you
With your fresh thoughts care for, can you?
Ah! as the heart grows older
It will come upon such sights colder
By and by, nor spare a sigh
Though worlds of wanwood leafmeal lie;
And yet you will weep and know why.
Now no matter, child, the name:
Sorrow's springs are the same.
No mouth had, no nor mind expressed
What heart heard of, ghost guessed:
Tis the blight man was born for,
Tis Margaret you mourn for."
Gerard Manley Hopkins
Goldenrod is blooming and still no Jodi.
School is starting and Jodi is still absent.
Tiffany Sweet, 17, who claims she is Jodi's best friend, said the teen told her she was going camping with friends but went to Bowen instead.
Sweet thinks her friend, a soon-to-be Grade 12 student from Howe Sound Secondary, may have tried to hitchhike to Horseshoe Bay.
This is interesting, not sure if it had been posted before or not...
Arnott 'a little bit crazy,' says friend
However, friends say the young man was drunk and out of control the night Henrickson went missing.
Derek Sinke (left) and Khole Dallas say speculation is running wild on Bowen Island. (CBC)
"[Gavin] almost drove into the house… and we pulled him out of the car and duct taped him to a pole so he couldn't drive anymore," said friend Khole Dallas.
"I've known Gavin my whole life and I don't think he could ever do something like that, but at the same time he is a little bit crazy, I would say. I wouldn't say crazy, but he's different."
Derek Sinke, who attended the same party as Arnott, said the younger Arnott had always been odd.
Birds are gathering in flocks to fly southward. Time is passing and still no news of Jodi.
As I was reading some older news stories I came upon a few things I thought was interesting to note here. Comments I make here are only my opinion, nothing more.
Gavin Arnott's father Randy Arnott appears to be a former and/or current firefighter who won an award:
Fire Services Exemplary Service Medal
Randy Arnott, Firefighter
Location: Bowen Island, British Columbia
Medal: November 29, 2005
Randy Arnott appears to own Twin Island Excavating Ltd. per this 2001 council meeting.
Watching this interview with Gavin makes me wonder if he is being totally honest. To me, he seems a tad bit nervous but that could be due to being interviewed by media.
Gavin's account of the assault seems brutal to me:
Arnott said it was the second time Jodi had contacted him since he was given a conditional discharge June 5 for assaulting her April 8. He said the fight in April started when she threw a motorcycle helmet and a computer monitor at him.
"At that point I jumped on her, and grabbed her and dragged her out to my front door."
From the same article:
Arnott said he had passed out at a house party on Bowen Island and was awakened by Jodi, who was also at the party.
At around 5:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 20, they walked along Miller Road toward Arnott's father's house. He said he and Jodi talked tensely for a few minutes, and he left without looking back.
Randy Arnott's residence is listed as: 988 Harding Road...if you look at the map link it is appx a 45 minute walk from the end of Miller Road to Gavin's father's house (provided this address information is accurate) and even longer if they were further up Miller Road.
Anyone have any thoughts they'd like to share?
Good night Jodi
Summer is passing. Where is Jodi?
Jodi is falling down the forum list....
bump, bump, bump
Just my, no one elses
It's time to harvest. And time Jodi came home.
Still nothing on Jodi.
