It does make a lot of sense, except there were SO MANY people there, someone would have said something. There were relatives, and other children, if something that caused her to die in her sleep had happened, I just feel certain that would come out by now.

I wonder if the clerk gave insight into the demeanor of the guy. Panicked, high, chatty, silent...KWIM? .41 worth of gas has to stick out a little unless that is a common occurence.

I keep thinking with the head being crushed that could it be possible someone may have been drunk driving backing up and hit her with the car??

would that have been an considered an accident ...?

Or Vehicular homicide???

If she her skull was crushed in the house, wouldnt LE have found evidence of it? I am sure their first approach must have been something abuse related. That is SOP for someone who kills a child right? They either call 911 reporting a mysterious accident or death, or they disappear the child...maybe I am being too simplistic.

Also I didn't see any outside footage of him pumping the gas...

Down here every gas pump at BP has a camera on it...

It might be that she obtained prescription drugs for Mariha's mom illegally and that is what she lied about? That's just a guess.

As far as I've read, I thought QS did NOT attend the party Saturday night. Or at least I haven't seen she did attend the party.

Still confused.

I'm just praying LE id's the POI who purchased the .41 or .57 cents worth of gas. Once that person is id'd the rest of the pieces will fall in place.
I used to work at a gas station (about 4 years ago) and sometimes people stopped in with their tanks empty and just put in as much gas as they could buy with the change in their pockets. (Of course back then the change in your pocket would get more gas than it does now!)

But I guess the POI is doing something other than that if LE is so concerned about him.

What I am Confused about is in some reports it say he gave them $20.00 and didn't come back to get the change.

Now if you only had a small container WHY would you give them a $20.00?

why not give them a $20.00 and say I only need about a dollars worth and get your change before you went to put the gas in???

IIRC, he gave the clerk a $20 for $2 worth of gas. He got his $18 back, but didn't come back for the $1.59.

I hope those who work for other gas stations in this immediate area are paying close attention to the survelliance that was released by LE.

If this guy drives he probably doesn't regularly fill up at this particular BP, but he is probably a regular customer at a gas station not far.

If he was on foot that morning hopefully someone remembers seeing someone walking with a container of gas. He likely would have walked down Dexter to Waverly and then down Waverly to the house. Also, just because he was seen running from the house doesn't mean he didn't have a car parked a little bit away he got into or had someone waiting for him.

I don't know if there were any witnesses seeing him walking. Or if there is a vehicle of interest based any surevlliance found.
The cashier should be able to give a more detailed description and also there should be people in and around that area who might know him. Hopefully.

video of POI buying gas, not sure if it was posted.
At the 1.:03 point he appears to be looking straight at the surveillance camera. I don't really know how to freeze the frame and take the photo separately. Anyone want to try?

This is exactly what I think happened

When you all are watching the video of the person buying gas, does it look to you that he looks right at the camera before he goes through the doors and leaves? Creepy.

I think he didn't realize there was a camera, saw it and that is why he didn't come back for the change from the $2 he prepaid gas.

Sad, but not unexpected. Hopefully LE will be able to find the evidence they need.
