    What I was really trying to figure out was whether or not that person was in the car with SH and Ryan.

    Using only initials, I'm curious as to who people are thinking the "friend" is to the left of "Bookie" on the chart, just above "family member".

    My strong belief is that it's SH. I believe the friend of Baylee and Micah on the other side of the chart, to the right of the enforcer is SW.

    I'm hoping we can try to tease this out without breaking any rules.

    (Mods, please delete this and let us know if this is a bad idea)

    I believe gun seller #1 is MC.

    I'm also wondering if he could be the distributor, though - because of one of those charges:

    010 F HS 11366.5(A) RENT/ETC FOR STORAGE/SALE/ETC OF CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE

    I'm still questioning myself on the left side a bit. What's stopping me up slightly is the relationship between "family member" and the others.

    Any thoughts?

    Actually, I'm questioning myself on all of it to some extent, the more I look at it. Fortunately, it's the result of finding more connections and possible players.

    His house on the east side is in a very drug and crime dense area, I agree with distributor (of drugs)

    Am I the only one wondering if SH and MQ's ex are related by marriage?

    Idk. My understanding of money laundering, the distributor "hides the money" by putting it in many different "businesses". This case is so difficult because there are so many different criminal activities going on.

    He is definitely a drug dealer.

    Such a good question, because of how the arrows point on the chart.

    I definitely agree that SH is the "friend". To me, SB could be the distributer. He could easily hide shady business behind a professional front. Baylee & Micah's friend on the right, I always thought SW. But could be be KSQ?

    I agree, but I still don't think he's THE distributor on the chart. I feel like that's bigger. The next question is, "distributor of what?"

    Guns?
    Counterfeit money?
    ID's/personal info?
    "Escorts"?

    Here's a burning question I've had for a while, can there be more than one enforcer? Just seems like a few guys had arrest records which make me wonder if more than one is possible.

    I agree with you on both points. Been leaning toward SB as distributor and SW not being on the chart, replaced by KSQ. Have to play with that a little more.

    Do we know much about the friendship between Micah and SW?

    Definitely - and SB calling "his boys" makes it sound pretty likely.

    In James' obituary, there are a couple of inventions mentioned - patented skateboard trucks and some bibs.

    I wonder if he and someone at the top were in business, distributing something related to these or another invention? SB did owe him money...

    I see a few SM accounts that sure do follow a lot of filmmaking/photography accounts.

    Anyone else wondering if Micah stumbled upon a porn production and/or distribution ring? That could go along with the human trafficking angle, of course. Seems like they have the necessary components, though - girls, drugs, money, plenty of contacts and no shortage of men making lewd comments on the accounts of pretty girls.

    This could be way off - and hopefully, it is.

    (Could also be legit sports videos, etc.)
