    Thank you! She may not be easy to spot but her red and white cap/hat might be.

    Yes, I can verify that. It's very simple. It can be done before or after - change the time and date on camera before or change data afterwards.

    There are forensics that can narrow the time and date, if not determine the exact time and date. Without a forensic investigation, one would not be able to definitively state the time and date.

    If all else fails, they could always go the “position of the sun route.”

    I cited a case a few threads ago where a guy created an alibi by filming himself fishing.

    NASA experts were able to determine that the time stamp on the video was wrong, based on the position of the sun.

    That type of thing could solve any time issue here.

    Or that container she was holding .. You are correct .. At this moment that is what we are seeking to find with a Drone search of the possible walking path from start of the location that RT lost sight of his wife and beyond. in both directions to the Location of the 5th wheel trailer connected to the Ford F Model .. And other scenario that could have happened..

    If she even had a hat on or a container or even made it to the location. Still waiting for more verification than RT.

    (I remember that Forensic Files. I’ve been dying to bring it up here, glad you mentioned it. I can still see that goofy fishing video in my head.)

    Same here. I do think she's in the desert, though - just not within walking distance of the area that was searched.

    I agree that it is highly unlikely an abductor appeared but it is, of course, possible. Stranger things have happened. But the simplest answer, in my opinion, is this did not happen.

    Fascinating. I feel so sorry for the victim and the perp's family too.

    Its really not a lot of unaccounted-for time to hide a body.

    Assume for a moment that LE has pictures of her at the site (reported by our VI and also the fact that LE searched for 9 days for some reason). So she was there in the morning (at least) after they got ice, after dropping off the dog etc...

    If RT perpetrated a crime then he had to leave, and then be back at the location on Kelbacker rd. when he called the police from his phone... Because if he called from anywhere else LE would nail him in short order. He couldn't call LE from the Kelbacker site and then leave to hide something because he would have no idea what the response time would be. Imagine if LE showed up and you weren't there.

    How much time would he actually have?

    @MassGuy - can you expand your theory a little? I think the 'where' would be somewhere in the desert, but, would the location need to be accessible by vehicle or at least near to where a vehicle can be parked. A dead body would be hard work to move, especially in the heat, yes? Likewise, digging a grave would also be difficult in that heat? So, on this basis, where would be a good place to hide a body, that is accessible to a vehicle.

    I am sure that you have already a scenario in your head, would be grateful for you to share!

    I'm not sure either. I would like @dbdb11 to confirm that LE have in fact got verified time stamped photos of that afternoon. I ask as I believe that original post that stated a time of 2pm has been deleted).

    Uh.. just going to point out, VI stated that BT left kennel just after 8am, RT left chevron around 9am. Based on the time of the 911 call that leaves BT unaccounted for for around 7 hours.

    I suppose you could go out to that site with your wife, take some photos with a camera set to the wrong date (a date you plan in advance) and then later go back to that site after committing a crime on that pre-planned date; thus establishing a false timeline.

    The more complicated it gets the less likely it seems to me.

    Wouldn't a divorce have been so much easier?

    Assuming there are no pictures in between those times.
