Law enforcement sources tell Eyewitness News, "Two letters have been sent from Houston, TX from Cesar Laurean and they now believe Laurean may now be in Mexico." Sources close to Eyewitness News say those letters were sent to Laurean's wife in Jacksonville, N.C.

Timeline from AMW:

At a press conference January 15, 2008, Lt. Col. Curtis Hill -- the public affairs officer of the Second Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Lejeune, N.C. -- released the following timeline of events related to the disappearance and murder of Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach:
May 11, 2007
Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach reports two encounters of a sexual nature with Cpl. Laurean to her supervisor. She reported that the first encounter occurred on March 26, the second about two weeks later. At that time, a pregnancy test was performed, which came back negative.
May 11
Naval Criminal Investigative Service opens rape investigation
May 12
Verbal order issued barring contact or communication between Laurean and Lauterbach. Lauterbach moved to another building across the base from Laurean.
May 24
Written order issued barring contact or communication between Lauterbach and Laurean.
June 19 - June 24
Lauterbach takes annual leave home to Ohio.
June 27
Lauterbach goes to a doctor feeling sick. A pregnancy test was performed, which came back positive. Doctors estimate the date of conception to be May 14.
Over the summer months, Lauterbach and Laurean each take leave time and return to the base as scheduled.
September 17
Lauterbach requests permission to move into off-base housing to care for her baby. Her request was approved on Oct. 31.
October 18
NCIS recommends that no disciplinary action be taken until evidence can taken from the child.
October 22
Witnesses questioned in rape investigation.
November 5
Lauterbach moves off-base into home with Sgt. Durham, who planned to leave North Carolina in December for training in California. Lauterbach planned to sublet the home in his absence.
The same day, a trial council re-interviews Lauterbach, at which time she adjusts her statement to say that her pregnancy was not the result of a sexual assault.
November 26
Trial council discusses what possible charges -- if any -- would be filed against Laurean. Lauterbach attends her last doctor's appointment.
December 14
Lauterbach reported to work. Her workday ended at noon for a Christmas party, which she did not attend. Sgt. Durham returned to their home and says he finds a note from Lauterbach that expressed her desire to leave the Marine Corps. Sgt. Durham said her car was gone, and some personal items were taken. Marine command determined that Lauterbach had gone U.A. Investigators find that Lauterbach withdrew $700 from a Jacksonville, N.C. ATM, and bought a Greyhound bus ticket to El Paso.
December 19
Lauterbach fails to report to work. Sgt. Durham gives commanders Lauterbach's note; command sends investigators to her house, and reports that her car and her things were gone. She's listed as a deserter because of concern over her health.
December 19
Command calls Lauterbach's mother, who she says she last spoke with her daughter on Dec. 14. Maria's mother says she doesn't know where Maria is; her mom files a missing persons report in Ohio. Lauterbach's cell phone is found along Hwy 24 when a stranded motorist uses the phone to call Lauterbach's sister. She asked the person to turn the phone in to police.
December 24
An unidentified man withdraws $400 from Lauterbach's bank account at an ATM in Jacksonville, N.C.
December 26
Lauterbach misses an appointment with her obstetrician.
January 7, 2008
NCIS finally learns about the cell phone's discovery, the ATM withdrawals, and the Greyhound bus ticket. Up to this point, they still thought Lauterbach was UA. Laurean is questioned as possible witness to Lauterbach's disappearance, but not as a suspect. Laurean asks to leave work to meet with his civilian attorneys. Command doesn't see anything unusual with this given the status of the rape investigation.
January 8
The protective order between Laurean and Lauterbach is reissued. It's learned that the order of protection had lapsed between Dec. 24 and Jan, 7 due to an administrative oversight.
January 11
Laurean doesn't report to work, and commanders are unable to get in contact with him by phone. He is presumed to be U.A. Onslow County Sheriff's Office holds press conference announcing they believe Lauterbach is dead and buried in Onslow County, and Laurean is considered a person of interest. Laurean's wife gives authorities a note from Laurean stating that Lauterbach had taken her own life. This was deemed to be impossible.

Confirmation of the purchase of the bus ticket on December 14, 2007.

http://www.wnct.com/midatlantic/nct/...1-11-0006.html

Interview with ticket agent:

Roshaun Hames says the pregnant 20-year-old Marine Lance Corporal stationed at Camp Lejeune bought a bus ticket from him around 5 p.m. on December 14th. That’s the last day she spoke with her family – and the same day her mother urged her to give up her baby. Onslow County deputies say Maria is due to give birth any day now.

What the neighbors saw and when they saw it.

Richard Alander (after LE had removed bodies of Maria/Gabriella)

* 12/16/07 ... Laurean borrowed a shovel from Alander.

* 12/16 or 12/17/07 ... Alander saw Laurean driving Maria's car.

* 12/23/07 ... The Laureans had a ChristmasEve backyard bonfire w/Marine friends.

* Week before 01/11/08 ... Xtina told Alander's wife that she and Cesar were painting the inside of their garage and some of the rooms in their house.

* 01/10/08 ... Alander's wife saw xtina and POS talking in their yard and was trying to hear what they were saying (didnt say they were arguing, but did mention something about young couples naturally having problems) but Alander did not report anything his wife might have heard.

* 01/11/08 ... Alander's wife saw Cesar in his driveway, getting ready to leave in his truck at @ 6:30 a.m. when she took her dogs for a walk.
(Walking the dogs at 6:30 a.m. is part of her everyday schedule, and on school days (as Friday was) she wakes up her daughter when she returns from the walk. Alander was emphatic about the time, specifying it was 6:30 a.m. and not 4:00 a.m. "as some have said").

Timeline no discussion

Yes, now that you mention it, I did love the details; the costumes and authentic looking sets. I guess my complaint was that there was not more of the movie. I was dissapointed when it ended, wondering what are they the characters doing now? So thats not such a bad complaint, hey? How bout a Timeline II?
