yes according to RT he was very prepared for the desert 'walk'.
What “information started coming out about the other woman”?
Agreed. Just wanted to make sure you were aware of that.
I posted that we don't know how much she drank that day.
It looks like it would be next to impossible to find a body in the desert in all of the shrubbery.
If I were on a desert walk with my wife, you can bet she would have me carry the gallon of water that she was also drinking- you guys are really stretching to find sinister intentions here.
I've haven't been to either. Could you explain the differences? Why do you think they're a 'different animal'? Thank you!
Maybe we can all agree we don't know what all she drank or how much of anything? That's where I am in all this.
Its the Powell case. Woman became lost after she was chased/threatened by a man with a knife. The article has more information.
If this is the terrain, I agree!
OK thank you, I did not know that important point. I hope it doesn't sound like I am victim blaming, I'm not. I'm questioning BT going into the desert in clothing not well-protecting for the desert which indicates to me that she didn't intend to be there long. 2 miles is a long way in the blazing sun. I'm questioning this disconnect. If she were from Minnesota, for example, I'd think well maybe she just didn't know. But she's from Bullhead City, she presumably knows that the desert is like. So in my head, BT didn't intend to walk very far at all. Certainly not 2 miles.
I can agree with that. <modsnip>
Yes, but if I were carrying the water, and my significant other needed to go ahead of me to get back to our camper, at noon in the middle of July in the desert, I would make damn sure s/he had water in her/his cup and not beer. Some plan would be made that each of us had water in case of any separation while out in the desert on a walk at least a mile out from the camper.
So with the temps that day being rather mild that means it's possible for BT to hike farther from the RV than if the temps were way over 100 degress. JMO
ETA. This weather information is for Kelso Idaho so it doesn't have anything to do with this case.
The above temperatures are from Kelso, ID ...easy mistake to make
Thanks. The avg and measured temps did seem to be low for that area.
The fact is that the only public statements from him are in two media interviews.
And it is a fact that such interviews are routinely cut to fit the required transmission time.
We can be certain that he gave more details to the police.
One thing that's been nagging me. RT said he was carrying a gallon of water with him.
Was this a single gallon bottle of water, which seems like an odd choice? They are hard to drink from.
If it was a few individual bottles of water, why not say so?
Why say a gallon? And if they were single bottles, why not hand her one (she has 2 hands, only 1 allegedly held beer) to drink, instead of worrying more about taking a photo than his wife?
Did either of them drink any of the water during their walk? You'd think they'd both be thirsty walking in the sun and heat.
Yes, that is the command center. I imagine taking photos on the trails was not a priority so there are not many of those.
I was referring to evidence (or lack thereof) found of Barbara during the search in general, not upon arrival. MOO
I can't see that any of this is significant. I don't doubt that they drank some of the water if they were thirsty. Maybe he offered her a bottle (if that's what he was carrying) and she declined.
