    The link I posted above will be airing it - they have a live shot of the setup right now - it's at Cal Poly.

    Sheriff Ian Parkinson says they're holding today's press conference on Cal Poly's campus because "this is where it all started" #KristinSmart

    "Kristin never returned to her dorm room that night and has not been seen or heard from since that time." Parkinson is going through the timeline of Kristin's disappearance from Cal Poly

    Olivia DeGennaro @OliviaDeGennaro 43s
    "Throughout our investigation, Paul Flores has remained a person of significant interest." Parkinson says in late 2016, they discovered additional evidence that confirmed that Paul was the suspect in the disappearance

    Paul Flores was given "zero bail," according to the Sheriff.

    Replying to @OliviaDeGennaro
    Paul Flores is being held on no bail. He cannot be released from custody at this point. He is being charged with murder.

    Parkinson says he cannot reveal what detectives found while serving several recent search warrants. "I will say this... we have not recovered Kristin."

    The Sheriff said they hadn't found her remains, but had also said earlier that the searches at the home(s) were not finished yet. So I will remain hopeful that they will find her with these searches.

    So very glad to see the arrests finally happening.

    I'm hopeful Kristin's remains will be found.

    Searches aren't over yet!

    So no remains

    So why now, finally, does he get arrested.

    What did they find? The bloody earring that's been missing for something like 15 years? The OTHER earring?

    They found forensic physical evidence....He made it sound like it's plausible that her remains could still be found (and obviously they'll continue to look).

    I wonder if, and this is just a thought, someone who has not been arrested provided some evidence? Perhaps?

    ETA: Posted this before I read the post just above.

    Replying to @OliviaDeGennaro
    "It's not what you believe, it's what can you prove." Parkinson talks about due process and the need for physical evidence to actually prosecute a case.

    Replying to @OliviaDeGennaro
    Parkinson says detectives found physical evidence at "at least two homes" and they do believe it's linked to Kristin.

    Olivia DeGennaro @OliviaDeGennaro 2m
    Parkinson on the Your Own Backyard Podcast took awareness of this case to an international level.

    Olivia DeGennaro @OliviaDeGennaro 2m
    "There were certainly some missteps..." Parkinson says there are some things investigators have done very well too, but acknowledges the mistakes made early on.

    Olivia DeGennaro @OliviaDeGennaro 42s
    "It's a puzzle." Parkinson quote's Kristin's mother, Denise Smart. I've heard her describe the case this way too...

    Thank you. Seems the Q&A is providing more info than the actual presser.
