ADMIN NOTE

The website Find Kiely has been APPROVED upon review.
#FindKiely | Kiely Rodni | Truckee CA

Disparaging Kiely’s friend SS is NOT APPROVED. Bashing anyone who has not been named as a suspect/POI in this case is a violation of Websleuths’ Terms of Service. PLEASE STOP and move on to discussing how to find Kiely.


STOP POSTING ABOUT UNCONFIRMED INFORMATION.
That is not what Websleuths is about and it is a SERIOUS violation of the Terms of Service.
If you want to stay a part of this discussion, do not post info UNLESS IT IS FROM LAW ENFORCEMENT OR A MAINSTREAM MEDIA SOURCE.


SCANNER INFO IS NOT PERMITTED ON THESE PUBLIC THREADS.

ADMIN NOTE:

As SS is a major case player in this matter of Keily's disappearance, her FindKeily page is being approved for discussion.

Please just ease up on this young lady and do not trash her or insinuate that she is somehow responsible for Keily's disappearance.

Thank you.

Hey everyone,

Please don't start using names that have not been in MSM or released by LE. The OP that contained a specific name was removed.

Also, please do not post information that may interfere with a police investigation. Websleuths isn't in the business of tipping people off in the event they are following the discussion.

Thank you.

ADMIN NOTE:

This post lands at random.

Because we never know who may be reading here, please do not post or discuss information that is part of an investigation unless it is information that is released by LE.

While locals may share information about geography / topography, businesses, local flavor, etc, please do not share rumors/hearsay or questions/answers related to FBI agent interviews in the neighbourhood. It's counter-productive to the success of their case, and if the FBI want to share information with the public about their ongoing investigation, they will do so by publicizing directly or through MSM.

Members can sleuth, share, and discuss whatever they want via private messaging conversations where up to 20 other members can be added to the group. Whatever is discussed in PM is not to be posted on the public thread.

ADMIN NOTE

True Crime Misfits is not an approved source.

Sleuthing social media of any individual other than victim or an LE officially named perp is not allowed.

Disparaging or criticizing the family in any way is not victim friendly. Just don't do it.

Don't say you read or saw something somewhere. Unless you can provide a link to "somewhere" that is an approved source, don't even mention it.

Admin has warned before about trashing/bashing SS and that we have a zero tolerance in place where members who do so will be banned from this discussion. Don't ignore Admin or Mod notes or warnings. Members won't be warned again. You'll just find yourself unable to post.

ETA: Admin edited to remove reference to Moonshine Ink

We welcome new members to Websleuths to discuss this troubling case.
PLEASE review the WS rules we ALL agreed to when we joined.
https://www.websleuths.com/forums/forums/the-rules.159/

The Terms of Service are intentionally strict as WS is the gold standard of true crime discussion websites, and we all work hard to keep it that way.
Here are a few of the key rules:

- Post only facts, and that must be linked to the source of those facts.
- If it can’t be linked, it can’t be posted. That includes any pictures.
- Approved links are from mainstream media (MSM) or law enforcement (LE) statements.
- The ONLY Facebook links permitted are those from MSM, LE, the victim, or the OFFICIAL missing page if there is one established.
- NO public comments from ANY source are allowed as they cannot be verified.
- NO ONE may be accused/speculated/sleuthed unless they are the victims or persons NAMED BY LE as a suspect or POI. NO bashing ANY of the case players/witness. Time-outs and/or thread-bans will be issued.
- If you have inside info you want to share without providing links, YOU MUST BE APPROVED AS A VERIFIED INSIDER. Link to do so is in my signature below.

Websleuths is FACT-BASED and VICTIM-FRIENDLY.
Family members are considered victims also unless/until LE tells us they are suspects or POIs.
Posts that are in violation of ANY of the Websleuths’ TOS are subject to removal, as are all the replies that quote and/or reference the violating post.

PLEASE use the Report button at the bottom of any post if you come upon a post that is questionable regarding Websleuths’ TOS.

THANK YOU for your efforts to post respectfully and responsibly according to the Websleuths’ TOS.

MOD NOTE:

@CharlestonGal has found a video, filmed by a local, showing the probable route driven the night of Kiely's death. This video, and ONLY this video from the local woman is approved. As always, refrain from discussing comments on social media.
Thank you! The video was found by member @WillenFan21.

ADMIN NOTE:

Websleuths is a crime sleuthing forum. Foul play has not been ruled out by LE, so until such time as it is, stop the putdowns of others who are speculating in that regard.

And don't be telling others how to think, how to post, what to do, or ridicule them for their speculative opinion / theories. Members are not Moderators or Administrators of this site. If there is something that is unacceptable or not allowed, WS staff will determine that through a combination of our established TOS and through review in accordance with TOS, mixed in with a lot of discretion and judgment required of WS staff. If you aren't trained as a Moderator or Admin at Websleuths, you are a regular member and do not have the right to be modding here.

Also a reminder that Websleuths is as fact based as possible based on what is available to us via MSM, LE, and other approved sources. Random social media is not an approved source for discussion and is not to be mentioned. If you can't link it according to Websleuths TOS, you can't discuss it here. It is considered rumor and we know that rumors grow legs and somewhere down the road some well-meaning person will say "Well they said at Websleuths that .....".

Please review TOS (aka The Rules) and post in accordance with them. Violation of our rules may result in a loss of posting privileges.

Thank you.

ETA: And stop with the snark and sarcasm. If you can't post with courtesy, you won't be allowed to post here.

ADMIN NOTE

The auto road service fellow is a possible witness in this case. He is not a POI, and while you may reasonably question what he has to offer, there is absolutely no need to trash him in the process.

In the previous thread @Beekarina said (RSBM for focus) ....

"What isn't sitting right with me: If Kiely was driving, the passenger window was fully out/down when AWP found her CRV. It seems pretty safe to assume it would have been same if/when Kiely tried to escape, right? So she would have had two windows close to her, one full down, and another partially down, but large enough for her to fit through, and instead she went for the cargo area?"


I think it is possible that the vehicle didn't immediately flip onto its roof. It may have flipped onto its passenger side first, the window broke. Kiely started scrambling to get out with the open (broken) window now being on the ground, and the lake water pushing down on the drivers side and rushing in through the partially open rear window.

Then sometime later the vehicle slowly rolled onto its roof.

It is hard to know exactly what the vehicle did on the night. We only really know that two weeks later it was laying on its roof.

(It's not a theory I am committed to, but it has crossed my mind.)

That makes sense.

I think it was a smooth bottom but if there was a large rock or something and it initially landed on its side the window could have been broken by that. If glass is found inside the vehicle that could help determine what happened.

I’m sorry as this has probably been asked and answered a few times already, but I’m having a difficult time catching up.

Since it appears to be general knowledge that people are often found in the back of their vehicles after being submerged in water, in the AWP tape why did the diver who found Kiely say, upon surfacing, “She’s in the back. She’s not in the driver’s seat. Seem suspicious. Call the authorities.”

I would have found it suspicious, too, but now I’ve come to read that it’s quite common for drivers to be found in the back, and divers know this. Why would he say something misleading?

I have thought about this, and I am wondering if most inebriated people are found still strapped into the drivers seat. And that is what he found unusual, considering all the rumours/opinions that Kiely was off her face.

Kiely's instinct for survival and her youthful energy may have allowed her a decent attempt at escape and/or to find air.

We don't know what else he may have seen to lead him to that conclusion.
My guess is that he saw something that stood out to him and made him believe it wasn't an accident, and what that could be is anyone's guess.

I was reading up on the 2013 CRV Owner's manual as I was curious if she could open the tailgate from the back end of the vehicle if she were to crawl back there. The only other way she could have been able to get it open was if she was outside the vehicle because otherwise according to this you need a screw driver to open that and there would have been no way she was doing that because how dark it was and the time it would take she'd a drowned before being able to get out there. I have provided a link to the PDF manuals for the 2013 CRV.

I would have found it suspicious, too, but I have absolutely no experience with anything like that.

I believe Nick was relatively new to this type of thing so maybe he had no point of reference either? Or maybe he saw something else that aroused his suspicion? I'm sure he was debriefed by more experienced people but who knows, at this point, what they think?

Judging from the amount of people, trucks and vehicles when her car was towed out, there were already plenty of authorities there. They must've been there to supervise, as AWP only do the finding of cars and towing out - so LE, police, sheriff, FBI (depending on location and the type of case) need to be there to take over from AWP as soon as the car/body is removed.

I'm sure the diver was saying that to the videographer for dramatic effect.

Remember, the owner of AWP runs an influencer/video company. They know what to say and how to edit for more drama. Their YouTube platform relies upon clicks and likes.

MOO.
