Thank you for your response and your feedback I know I get really passionate about stuff and I tend to throw a lot of my ideas together all at once LOL. I'll try to divide everything up. I'm glad the pictures were helpful.Bumping^^^ THANK YOU @aliciaengel010 for posting pics along with your extremely thought-provoking post. I appreciate you taking the time you did to show details. It's valuable info to have on this thread along with actual pictures. To see, with our own eyes, the distance in a pic is really shocking!
Wow, there is something wrong with LE not investigating this to the max. WTH! I can't understand how he would've walked that far and why. There's just something that can't be explained easily that only LE might have been able to dwell into, and didn't.
Do you think the person living in that house where RS was found dead the next morning should have or could have heard him outside? You lived in that area before and might be able know what it's like better than I. Keep going, you're doing a good job of it. JMO-- just try to handle one subject at a time thoroughly, and revealing the different ways to look at it. Great work!
So, to answer your question as to whether or not the person in that home would've heard something: obviously there's a possibility that he could've been hard of hearing, or on some sort of medication that induced a deep sleep, etc. but just speaking from my own experience, and given the proximity from where Robert's body was found to the house, the chances of the resident not hearing a thing are extremely slim to none, especially on a Saturday night. I lived in Rancho Santa Fe about 5 minutes away from where Robert died... right off that same road, just a little further east. (Which is why I'm surprised I hadn't heard about this case at all until recently, but then again there's a lot of clandestine activity out there in RSF and I still have nightmares about some of the stuff I witnessed while I lived in that area).
But anyways, the house I lived at had a very similar outdoor set-up to the one where Robert's body was found. The thing about that area is that it's isolated and generally extremely quiet (sometimes TOO quiet to the point where it's eerie), so it's nearly impossible not to hear a scream or even someone running on your property, especially on a weekend night when there is little to no people or traffic flow out there. (The only time there's really any traffic at all out there is on the weekday mornings & early evenings when workers use Paseo Delicias as a shortcut during their commutes. But the roads were practically empty out there on weekend nights).
So anytime there IS a noise of some kind, it's very noticeable. And it also tends to echo very heavily because of the mountains and the deep valleys around there. So not only would the resident have probably heard Robert out in his driveway, especially that close to his house, but any noise made would've been enhanced due to the physical setup of the area (i.e. the echoing). Plus, that gate would not have been easy to climb over. I imagine even just the struggle of climbing over that gate would've created some highly alarming noises and if Robert had the strength to climb over that thing, he most likely would've had the strength to be screaming his heart out for help. So again, I can't speak for that resident, but from my experience of living right around there, it's extremely hard for me to believe that the guy didn't hear a thing in a quiet area like that. (And given that the dude was awake at 8 a.m. on a Sunday morning, when he claims to have found the body, it's fair to assume he wasn't boozing it up hardcore the night before. But I digress. Sticking to one topic for now lol... yes, I do think the resident should've heard something happening and I don't know why LE didn't seem to press further on that).
