    I wonder what would have happened if Barbara had moved up her flight? I thought I read that she communicated with her brother's family about possibly doing that. If she had moved up her flight, there might not have been time for a camping trip before she left. MOO

    Agreed.
    The timing of the camping trip feels off.

    SPECULATION ONLY.

    That depends on whom you ask and the intended purpose of the timing. Was the scheduling of the 'camping trip' pushed up or pushed back or spur-of-the-moment? The answer might indicate whether or not the HK situation had anything to do with this case. Maybe a plan had been in the works for a while... and by whom, who knows.

    If the trip that day was for only a two-mile hike for rock formations exploration... why would they need to bring along the camper? To carry a gallon of water and one or two sixer's?

    It's like driving a tractor-trailer combo to the local gardening store to purchase and bring home one small potted plant.

    I've also been wondering: does LE have GPS-tracking info on RT's phone (assuming RT carried his phone on his person during the entire day of the hike)? Umm.. strictly for search location purposes...

    AFAIK, earlier in the week, BT told her relatives that they were going on a camping trip and would be unreachable for several days. So it sounds like she understood them to be going on a camping trip with the new RV.

    I've also wondered whether LE was able to get tracking info on RT's phone as well as on the truck. JMO

    The trip was for a few days, she told the HK group. I believe it was a few days before the camping trip that she spoke to them.

    Yes, it does seem strange. That said, returning home the same day would be a long day of driving so if one has a new rig, one might want to spend the night somewhere and head home the next day.

    Lexi was in the kennel for 30 days until her son got her out? RT never got Lexi from the kennel? How did I miss that detail? Dang.

    Jeeze. Well, she wasn't abducted and murdered because she crossed a street w/a bikini and a beer. She didn't get lost 1/4 mile from her RV destination because she had early onset or was suffering from heat over-exposure or she was drunk. That leaves ...

    "Uxoricide" is the murder of ones wife or female partner. Statistics vary from country to country but when a woman is murdered there is usually a 40% to 60% chance that the male partner did it.

    I don't remember that either. Do you happen to know the source for this?

    didn't dbdb11 post Barbaras return date? I suppose she could have extended her stay, but I do not think that was the original purpose.

    You think her son flew to Arizona from Indiana to get her dog out of the kennel, then what, fly Lexi back to Indiana?
    He hasn't flown to Calif to look for his mother I highly doubt he would make a trip to get her dog out of the kennel.
