There had to have been a tandem driver for him to have dropped the Trooper off at the border. The Trooper also doesn’t appear to be in the neighbor surveillance video. LE took Merritt’s truck completely apart and found no evidence of blood or decomp, which means there had to been another means of transporting 4 bodies. 2 set of tracks at the 2 set of graves. Maybe made by one vehicle, but perhaps not. If the same vehicle, why? The absence of blood and apparent struggle in the home if this was the actual crime scene screams a meticulous clean up. It would be very difficult to control, subdue and then bludgeon 4 people by one individual armed with only a sledgehammer. Merritt had a flurry of phone calls between himself and his girlfriend in the minutes leading up to meeting with Joseph. Why? Merritt’s girlfriend is the very first and only person he called the morning of the 6th that pinged the Quartzite tower. Why? A call was made from Joseph’s phone to Chase’s phone on the night of the 4th at 8:28 when it is believed they were already deceased. Was this a ruse by Chase to make it appear Joseph was alive? Or was it his tandem driver using Joseph’s phone to contact not realizing Chase had turned his phone off? There are things not provided at trial, others (girlfriend, siblings, acquaintances) whose phone records and doings for those days that may line up with assisting Merritt but not enough evidence to charge said individuals. I’m hopeful they aren’t done investigating but I’m not optimistic this late in.
