I was not big on the gang theory until I just had another thought concerning the COD and the disclosure that 670 people have been interviewed. When I hear about blunt trauma to head, I think of someone hitting someone over the head with an object. But in my area of the country, the boy gangsters wear steel toe boots. We had a gang come into a private community swimming pool last summer and when the lifeguard asked them to leave, they beat him severely to the ground and proceeded to kick him in the head and face with steel toe boots, breaking every bone in his face...he barely survived.
Also, to contradict a previous post (I apologize, I'll try to find it) where someone stated that the gangs do not kill "up close and personal", I disagree...we had two young girls murdered when they were rushing home (late for kurfu (sp)) when they took a shortcut through the woods and stumbled across a gang. They were raped, tortured, and strangled.

It seems combination methods of murder are not rare and typically involve only a single perp. I've included links and a case capture, below:
COURT OF APPEALS
SECOND DISTRICT OF TEXAS
The autopsy revealed that Donahew had died from manual strangulation and that a secondary cause of death was a stab wound to her neck.
CR is no longer on the Chelan County jail roster, as of this morning. DR still is.
I have played and fished the Columbia River from Chief Joseph dam to the Bonneville dam. Most of my time has been spent between Rock Island and Priest Rapids. I can positively assure everyone that there are few if any evergreen style trees along the shores of the Columbia along these stretches. This is fact
Remember, once you get inland from the Cascade Mountains, it's nothing but a big ol' desert...and a river runs through it!

It sounds like the perfect place to dump M..Whether she was killed there or not so why didn't they?
ETA..I found the answer in this post on the previous page:
Not a lot of natural cover out there- just rocks. Not may trees. Lots of Coyotes. Other than in an abandoned place no where really to hide a body.

I wonder if JF and JV conspired to confront MC. They meet with her, an argument escalates and becomes violent. JV backs off and is terrified, JF finishes the job. JV didn't kill her but is an accomplice of sorts and maybe transfers her car while JF transfers the body to CB because he is familiar with that particular area and doesn't think she will be found. JV just dumps the car at the closest canyon to Wenatchee and hoofs it back to town. This would explain the last known texts between JV and MC. Perhaps MC was already incapacitated by that time. JV knows a lot more and is scared, distraught because he didn't want this to happen, and petrified of JF so is holding this information. All of this is purely speculative.
RUMOUR: I have recently heard from someone supposedly close to LE, that LE actually has 2 murder weapons. Don't think you want to know what they are, but it would make since as LE supposedly visited a few stores of sort to see if, when or where certain items could have been purchased. Because of what all I heard, seems the perp/perps may have worn gloves? Just another rumor floating around. Hope this info is ok to state on here, if not please inform me.
Also does anyone know if MC was wearing any rings, and on what hand when she went missing?
