I did notice a car/SUV parked beside it yesterday afternoon. I didn't get a good look though. It was lunchtime and 127 was congested. Do not think the cops would care if I explained to them I hit the car in front of me b/c I was busy staring at Zahra's house.

Don't you think it's odd that the place is not quarantined off and people go into the yard to place balloons and stuffed animals in the yard? I suppose it's not a crime scene now?

I also checked out another place in Granite Falls today as someone here asked if I would. It was a former residence of AY and EB and is pretty isolated in the area around it. It would be a perfect dumping ground but there was a gate across the road going into the woods and power lines so we did not go in.

"Lisa Dubs confirmed Friday that she has been assigned to Baker’s case as provisional counsel. According to court records, Dubs’ role is to “Conduct a preliminary investigation, determine if the defendant is indigent and needs appointed counsel, and protect the defendant’s rights pending appointment of trial counsel.”

"Dubs is one of about 10 Catawba County attorneys permitted to defend clients facing the death penalty. Even though Baker has not been charged with Zahra’s murder, the case has gained nationwide attention and Hurley has decided that it is appropriate to appoint Dubs because of the likelihood that Baker will eventually be charged with the crime, Dubs explained."

No website that I could find...guess you wouldn't. Wonder if the hiring of a PI was why some of the FB pages disappeared? I mean it would have given him a prefect start on who's who and what's what wouldn't it, or not.
Granted this is o/t, but in the Anthony case, the PI's were within yards of Caylee's body the month before she was discovered.

Perhaps they are attempting to find evidence of where Zahra is without obtaining it directly from the people who may have a pretty good idea already. just speculation on my part. Or evidence of Zanny, oops, I mean the kidnappers who took Zahra from the home.

If this is their strategy, we can expect Zahra sightings pretty soon.

Did you call in a tip to the Sheriff's hotline? They can have the power company disconnect the lines and can legally get onto the property if it is privately owned.

No, I didn't. It was just a tip I got from someone here and they asked if I could check it out while sleuthing around. However, it makes perfect sense as isolated as it was. Didn't want to bother LE with something I had nothing to go on. I did take photos but haven't uploaded them yet.

I have a feeling he will remain stoic until and unless they get close to something and then he will pretend to fall apart. This man watched while his daughter was beaten and bullied by his wife and failed to intervene, he was complicit in her fate for this and IMO her disappearance.
I'm thinking he must have tried to get her to stop at some point because of that account of when her hand was so swollen from hitting Zahra's prosthesis. She told 2 different people that she had to tell AB that she fell because he'd be mad if he found out she hurt it trying to hit Zahra. So there must have been some attempt there. But, I guess, at some point, maybe she threatened to leave him or something if he kept at it so he stopped and preferred to look the other way. Sickening. A lot of women do that, too, when they afraid of losing the spouse.

It wouldn't be a giant leap. LE is conducting a homicide investigation, EB was caring for Zahra, EB allegedly admits to writing a bogus ransom note.....MOO

I do, too. It may sound so sad, but she deserves a proper burial with respect. A service to honor her life. EB probably threw her out like garbage. Sometimes I think angels come down to earth to see how we treat them. EB failed that one big time.

Yet another attorney jumping on the 'ol 'fame and fortune bandwagon' to make a name for him or her self. WHY would any lawyer want to rep someone like this? What ever happened to personal integrity? CA, TH, EB all hire high profile attorneys but not one of these women have the means to pay anyone to represent them. Our tax dollars have much better things to do! Like educate children. I JUST don’t get it...

Totally!! The first week after she went missing I didn't want to drive by there much less down that road just b/c I figured it was all blocked off. I still haven't actually driven down there but I am kinda surprised.

How come there was so much work that Adam had to work from early morning to late at night so that he never had time to see his daughter awake but very little income?
Since when did the mulching landscaping business work at night? They won't even work in the rain.

I live in a condo community and we have a landscaping crew here, mowing grass, mulching,trimming bushes and trees, snow removal.
They have about 6 people and they also do other condo and commercial places.
They come at 9 am and usually leave between 3-5pm.
Now in winter if it snows bad, they come at night, not often.
Seems like they always have Sat/Sun off..........
take turns during winter snow removal.

At camp the tree guys only work daylight hours.
The gravel man same. He quits about 7pm..........
So AB's hours are ODD indeed!
His poor employer trying to do a favor to an immigrant,
probably paying under the table.........pulled into this mess
and have IRS on his butt,

If the online ad for the lawn co is correct, they only employ 4 people. I tried to find a website for them but it appears they do not have one. Also it appears that this co has only been around for 2 years (I believe that's correct and that I remember it correctly). As far as being paid under the table I know that it does happen quite often with day labor type jobs. For instance some moving companies will pay under the table as it helps with keeping their insurance lower. Some truckers have been known to "hire" someone at a truck stop to help them unload their load and that is paid under the table. I would imagine that it would be the same for lawn care companies. (MOO)

I remember reading that a mother who kills her child will dump the body around 3 miles from the home. We have 2 problems with that in this case. 1. Elisa is not her birth mother sonot sure if that would affect the statistic or not. 2. We are not sure where she was killed at. The 3 miles could be "starting" from anywhere. Unfortunately I feel that the only way Zahra will be found is if one of her "parents" tell LE where she is. I really wish they would go ahead and arrest Adam as well. Lock him up, play one against the other, the first one to tell the truth gets a little bit better deal. I don't want either one to walk away or get a light sentence but I do want this child found.

has any onre heard anything about the gooy glove the neighbor found in the back yard
by the wood pile?
also LE acted so sure that Zahra's little body would NOT be in landfill......why???
Can we believe that taking the wood chipper apart piece by piece did not turn out to be evidence???
Stories come in both positive and negative throughout this investigation, throwing us all off.

I'm sure this is not a popular opinion on here, but I am getting worried that LE "rushed to judgement." I keep thinking that it is possible that Zahra was kidnapped. IMO, everything LE has done appears to be a dead end. Keep wondering if they conducted a grid search around Zahra's home.

If he was working on an illegal basis in some respect, be it lack of greencard or being paid cash under the table then you shouldn't be feeling sympathy for his employer. People hire immigrants in that way so they can pay them a pittance and give them poor working conditions. That AB looks less like the sort of person you might usually associate with being employed in that manner makes not a bit of difference, the dynamics are the same.

Can't think of any reason under the sun that EB would have written a ransom note if Zahra was kidnapped.
