First time poster here. I have been following this case diligently since the very beginning, both here on Websleuths and in other places online... There have been several times I thought about posting an opinion or theory or the like, but always ended up deciding it didn't really feel like it would contribute anything useful. I still feel as if I want to refrain from really discussing my thoughts on what I think may have happened, but there is one thing that I feel like needs to be brought to a point of discussion at the point we've now reached in this case. I'm absolutely not alluding to any type of implications of involvement or guilt on anyone's behalf, but I keep seeing everyone posting for several pages now about why exactly MPD pulled the surveillance footage, which is a very reasonable frustration, but I just want to point out this section from JDT's interview with LordanARTS on YouTube, starting around 37:29: John Lordan: "Have you ever seen that footage?" JDT: "I have seen it once on the news, and while I was watching it I was calling the police asking them 'what is this?' because they actually told me that there was no surveillance. And they were VERY upset that it was on, the news station had actually obtained this footage and they were not gonna release that, they actually were telling me that there was no footage, that it was all motion activated and they didn't get close enough to the... they made up a story, that there was none. And I couldn't, ahh okay, you know, well, keep looking, you know. Well then it comes on the news, okay here's footage from the Shell, that she was at. So I'm calling them and talking and they're very upset about it, you know, this could put Danniella in danger, you know, so I called the news station and I let them know, you know, I told them what they told me, you know, that they want that pulled, they said it could put Danniella in danger, you know, is there any way y'all could not show that again? So they did, they pulled it. So you know, they're saying it was by the police's request, it was actually me that, you know, myself that called and asked them not to do it again, but it was because of what the police had told me." Again, I'm not implying anything. I just feel that if it really was just JDT who called the news station and MPD may or may not have ever made an effort to also call NBC 15 or any other local news stations themselves, that it's worth at least noting and considering how this may make things look slightly different when reanalyzing the sequence of events. MOO Edited for formatting.
