Lol I have never been to a Walmart...and for sure won't start going since being on WS...every other criminal seems to go there before or after...
Rector is family friend and did stay at home for a few days
found in shallow grave
reported missing around 1:30 am
sister last saw her at 11:30 pm.......sister did not hear any yelling or screaming
police found Rector's old clothes
police did confirm that he did not go to his friend's house as he stated
found his matching shoe prints near shallow grave
My time here is limited for the next coupla days and then gondy for a week. Thanks all for the updates. We are headed up to our summer cottage for a week and then closing before the Canadian winter sets in. My fave moment is early in the morning. It's chilly. I have a hot cup of coffee in my hands. The mist is rising off the lake. I can hear the loons. It sets me right to know something is good and peaceful in this dang world!!!!!! Breaks my heart these little ones will never have a moment to savour! So I will do it for them.
The timeline is bothering me. She was last seen at 11:30 pm, Rector had to have walked her about 1/2 mile or more from her home to the area she was killed, she had no clothes on lower half of body so there is a possibility he raped her, then killed her, dug a shallow grave and buried her, then walked to Walmart, "shopped" for clothes, most likely changed into the shoplifted clothes in Walmart prior to leaving his old clothes in Walmart and was walking along the highway when police stopped him. Meanwhile the mother and others were also shopping at Walmart at the very same time that all this was suppose to have been occurring. 911 was called by her mother at 1:30 am. It seems to me that an awful lot happened in such a short time. Isn't it just a real miracle that he wasn't noticed by the mother and others while walking to Walmart to shoplift the clothes? Something is just not adding up here. :thinking:
Confusing isn't it? I'm wondering about the car as well but why was he walking to Walmart and then picked up by police walking from Walmart?I'm thinking car involved for transport .. Maybe why crime scene tape was seen on a vehicle .. But WHOSE car was it is my question??!!
OMG! Your comment just hit me. Why were no statements released early on about Bella being in the company of JR? It makes no sense that police would keep that information from the public while they searched for Bella. Even if the sister didn't say anything immediately the grandmother was there when he took Bella.
Even more curious, Bella's mom posted on FB on September 2 where she wrote "Please help me find my daughter." Not one word about a family friend taking her. She also posted numerous links to news stories about Bella being missing, including one that stated:
The residents there reported that 8-year-old Isabella Neveah Grogan-Cannella was not in her bed or anywhere in the residence.
But the family knew she was with JR.
Either LE knew from the get go (based on information given to them by family) that JR had her and had some sort of game plan in action or the family didn't disclose the whole story to them. I just can't figure out what LE would accomplish by asking for tips from the public while at the same time not releasing a description of a POI she was last seen with.
