    Hadn't heard of those, but from the photos at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captive_bolt_pistol, I don't think so. First, it's a contact weapon, and what he needed the gun for was intimidation, not for killing. Second, the gun we seem to see through the fabric looks like a fairly large...

    In thread #54, cindersoot asked: I need opinions, do you think BG is wearing a holster? If a holster would left handed I assume. Does anyone see rivets on the holster? Sorry for the late response, but I suspect no holster. The gun is very obvious against the fabric of the jacket, and its...

    You didn't question why the perp would remove the girls, and I expect that is obvious--more time, more privacy, up to and including sex slavery. But if he/they did remove them, why take the risk of bringing them back? My first thought is that because leaving them where they were killed, or at...

    (Quote concerned a broken stick and footprint in the Getty video). Yes, the credits for the Getty video show it was recorded by Ana Burkart, WXIN (which is Fox59 or part of it). So almost certainly this was shot for local news, then uploaded to Getty (along with numerous other Burkart videos...

    I don't think RL did it, and I'm not sure many do at this point. But a delay in charges doesn't prove lack of involvement. It's been mentioned before, but in the Teresa Sievers case, her murder happened at the end of June, LE was likely on the husband's tail by the day of the funeral, when he...

    Thanks. Hard to believe the accuracy of that timeline, though, as according to the following site, sunset was 6:20 pm and twilight ended at 6:50 pm. Having just gotten called at 5:30, it wouldn't allow much time for a search. I'm astonished that LE said, at midnight, that the only risk was...

    Is there a source for the search being called off when it got dark? My understanding is that the search didn't start until 5:30 p.m., which would be nearly dark already, I suspect (I live maybe 1,000 miles south of Indiana, but even here it gets dark early in February). I seem to recall rumors...

    Wasn't in the post I was responding to either, but this one from post #956: There seems to be a question as to the source.

    Damn Google. Just from following this thread, I'm now seeing a Duluth Trading ad on this page featuring two blue jackets, two men's caps, a work belt, and . . . very weirdly . . . a surgical set with sutures.

    As I have no experience with video, and don't know what was done to the image, I'm unable to say. I only know that color can be pulled out of apparently colorless, dark areas of an image with the Shadow Tool in Photoshop (which selectively brightens dark areas) and similar tools in other...

    I have no experience with phone videos, but with quality DSLR images, especially with RAW files rather than JPEGs, you can indeed pull out detail you never saw in life. That includes both objects and colors. Colors can be enhanced by radically brightening the shadows in an image as well as by...

    I do. I noticed in the GIFs just above that the white object at his throat seems solid--it seems more covered by the jacket in one frame than in the other. Goggles, whether they started out as motorcycle goggles, work goggles, etc., would serve to protect BG's eyes as he moved to control the...

    Thank you for the link. I sell photos for calendars, etc., and at least four of Libby's 15 posted photos wouldn't be out of place in national publications.

    Wouldn't 40 be the median age?. Merriam-Webster online says middle-aged is "the period of life from about 45 to about 64." https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/middle%20age

    I too thought I might be seeing goggles in one of the photos (forget which level of enhancement). Looked like they were around BG's neck for possible later use. To my mind, the number one reason for him to have goggles, if he did, would be to protect his eyes when he initially got close to the...
