Anyone know of her, or knows anyone who knows her who could do some digging??
    I just looked to see who this is. I don't know her. I have wondered which realtor found "something".

    About polygraph tests: You can't pass a polygraph unless you actually take one.
    Maybe, the rumor that someone failed a polygraph, is only true because he/she didn't take one?

    I know... it makes it seem like they have moved on. At least we haven't!

    In reality, that 'nearly 100%' figure means only that polygraph results are not reliable, nor are they admissable as 'factual' evidence as to imply guilt or innocence. Results only indicate a testee responded in particular showing in response to particular questioning and as influenced by measurable environment and unknown mental state.

    To put it simply:

    If a testee *believes* his/her responses are accurate then so will the polygraph.

    An habitual liar, who believes his own lies, might pass a polygraph?

    "A 1997 survey of 421 psychologists estimated the test's average accuracy at about 61%, a little better than chance."

    "In the 1998 Supreme Court case, United States v. Scheffer, the majority stated that "There is simply no consensus that polygraph evidence is reliable"

    When the victim got into her car Tuesday afternoon, the man was hiding inside. Hankins said the man forced her to drive a short distance and then told her to park. It was then, said Hankins, that the man sexually assaulted her.


    He said the victim was told to drive her attacker to nearby Wapato Park, where he got out of the car and ran away. The woman went to a Tacoma police substation located at the park and reported the rape.


    A detailed description of the man has not been released.
    bbm and color-changed

    We might safely assume MC entered an empty vehicle in the parking lot. I expect the surprise of seeing someone hiding in her vehicle would have caused MC to panic and attempt to exit the vehicle or at least delay her driving out of the parking lot. We also might expect erratic driving during that moment.

    BUT ...

    ... that does not mean someone could not have entered her car while she was getting coffee or visiting her bf in the Target store.

    Now, what's up with a description not being released? I hope it's because LE was not provided a description, as opposed to their keeping the description close to the cuff because they're waiting to trip up a suspect into describing himself when they catch him, just to be sure he is indeed, the perp.

    Gee whiz.
