P.S.-I noticed that the guests have been outnumbering the members A LOT lately. Do you have to "sign-in" as guest?! Just wondering why so many lurkers!
If there were two people involved, and one was riding in the back of the truck, it would make throwing the bike from the truck more viable, IMO.

But they had to have divers return there for some reason.
Poor girl,...I hope and pray for her.
I thought I saw that an unidentified man's body was recovered Wednesday in the Atchafalaya River in the pilot channel, unless the searches you are referring to occurred after that.

also, it was exactly one month after Mickey was taken.
i wonder what damage occured to the Raleigh girl's bike. if it's just like the damage Mickey's bike sustained??
Thanx, justwannahelp, I had forgotten that important parallel..The next innocent victim will be much sooner & much more violent, imo, unless he is caught..

If it has not already been.

Anyone know?

But very dark.

Would you know if the first exit you mentioned is as dark at night as it it on the bridge? If there is more light at the first exit that would explain why he chose the second exit? Just curious. Thank you again.
I'm not sure about the light, sorry.

I drove to BR this week and noticed some type of dwelling off the WB exit and several things of hay like it was someone's property or farm. Does anyone know what I was seeing?
Especially if you had the girl with you at the time.

About the NC incident, I think it took 10 days to release because perhaps it took a while to find the perp on camera. I am really glad they posted that picture. I don't know where they got it, but the floor reveals an interesting pattern (inlaid?) So I am assuming they scanned much video to find it. That floor is a clue to where he was. The victim had a good description and could identify the perp. I wish we knew more about the background---- if she left a group of friends or where she was previously.

I don't see why this perp(s) has to be especially smart...he took a woman and her bike, got rid of the bike, probably the woman as well...and so far the woman has not been found. Nothing there to make him a genius in my opinion.

How come no one thinks the Tara Jean Hawkins murder could also be related? She was also riding her bike and then went missing. Her body was found but not her bike. This just happened early June. She wasn't riding at 2am, it was 730pm but she too was a very cute, petite young woman. There is barely info on her murder, action jax posted a timeline with video of her on the last day she was seeen

Another thought regarding nc perp car being different, maybe the dot is a work vehicle and sub is personal or his wifes, etc.

IMO, from just an outsider watching many of these cases for years---She hasn't been missing all that long (compared to others) if the perp did get rid of MS. Most crimes, IMO, are committed by people you know or know the area well. That is probably the only reason she is still missing. The perp knew where to put/keep her b/c he either knew her or the area (or both). All my opinion of course

Her case has been brought up as well.

I just think that more young women ride bikes nowadays so there will be more victims than there used to be.

I don't really see any reason at this point to connect any of the cases.

If Tara Jean Hawkins were blonde I feel like a lot more comparisons would be made. If we are connecting cases I would say maybe for her over someone like Holly Bobo. Probably unrelated though. I am still leaning toward a local perp though some traveling would be possible.

My old girl, Molly (a horse) injured herself today. Cut her nostril and scrapped her bridge. It made me think of Mickey and how Mickey was probably patching up and comforting her horse like I did today right before her life was disrupted. Still hoping for some sort of break.

Man sought in attempted rape in Raleigh

"He is white"
----------------
Let's be politically correct, right? And make a presumption that the suspect is "white." OK, so does that mean, "caucasian" or not? At the expense of the victims. Just like everyone thought the Bike Path Rapist, someone who went on raping and killing for decades, was "white." That is, until the FBI broke down the DNA profile and determined otherwise. And exonerated an innocent man, who had been wrongfully convicted.

Look at the pictured video still of the suspect in the article.

I wonder if the Shunicks have contacted their Representatives or Senator for assistance with LE, if they are not really getting much more feedback than the community is getting. I think that is something I would try, if I felt helpless in a situation like this.

Of course maybe LE is being more forthcoming with the family, but they certainly are not with the community members. I get the feeling LE is avoiding media because they have so little to offer in the way of assurance. Most LE likes to pat themselves on the back enough to come out and declare that they will not rest, will find the victim, will go to trial, etc...we hear that much in other cases, as a rule. In this case, not a single word in a month, of a new case. A month is not a long time, relatively speaking, for a case that is many months, or years old, but it is a very long time in a six-week old abduction.

thank you bunnyhop, very good point about it possibly taking 10 days to find a picture. i was jumping to conclusions and didn't even think about that being a reason. Duh!

either way, that possibility makes me feel much more confident in LE. my mistake
