    I just re-read those parts. Maybe I'm Just struggling with the idea that somebody could actually make a plan to harm sweet Gannon

    He’s probably based on someone, but no, he does not exist in the sense that TS would have everyone believe.

    After looking at the picture of the wall behind Gannon's bed, I'm leaning toward a shooting. If it were blunt force there would be cast off blood on the opposite wall, ceiling, ECT. Because it would take more than one hit.

    I'm so sorry for the graphic content.

    Even in the AA it doesn't mention blood on ceiling or light fixture.

    Trying a 2nd pass at the AA. It is brutally difficult to comprehend all the craziness of her actions.

    One thing I just now noticed and may have some significance.

    It appears to me that she had to have had someone help her to go retrieve her Tiguan at the airport on the 28th because:

    Item #59 says the Tiguan was removed from the airport parking on January 28 at 19:00. But the Kia Rio was not returned until the morning of January 29th. So that has to mean someone drove her to the airport to pick up her Tiguan the night before she returned the Kia.

    I dont think it would have been AS because from #58 we learn that she would not provide the location of the Tiguan and even told AS the Tiguan was near French Elementary School. He and LE even tried to find it to no avail.

    So my question to LS is who took you to the airport on the 28th at around 19:00 to retrieve your Tiguan?

    And for that matter, who helped you return the Kia the next day?

    Oh, ok. I wonder why in the affidavit it indicates the current job as a teacher's assistant. Maybe I read it wrong.

    Or maybe they just assumed she was an assistant, thinking she couldn't possibly be a teacher. Idk.

    I didn't realize she found out later. I thought the school indicated they had notified her on Friday. I wonder why they didn't inform her when she called in sick.
    I had assumed she found out before the murder and that contributed to her unravelling.

    It will be interesting to hear whether she first made an attempt to strangle or asphyxiate Gannon which she believed would have left little evidence. (If his body wasn't too decomposed they should be able to tell.)

    When that took longer and was more work than she thought she may have beaten him to death.

    Shooting just doesn't fit to me. It may be that whatever weapon she used was in the suitcase.

    That's bound to be recorded on video. I'm convinced much is missing from the part of the warrant we've seen.

    Most kids, no matter how bad their parents are, will never turn on them, especially when they are all they’ve had all of their life. I’ll go a step further and say I bet they were best friends and told each other almost if not everything. I think LS saw her more as a friend than a kid. They need to be careful with her, because she is a life that can be saved or destroyed. She is part victim too, no matter what she knew. Imagine her life up til this point with that whack job ex-con mother. And I highly doubt AS will take her back in with open arms. She’s “Team T” after all. I wonder if there are any laws protecting her from talking. She’s also probably a good bit afraid of Mommy Dearest too.

    All of the helping with moving cars was HH in the white Jetta. That’s in AA.

    Having read the AA, I think Gannon DID return home and was killed in his bed on Monday.

    Something happened on Sunday; but nothing that would leave blood in the truck (even with Gannon riding in it for hours). Maybe she punched him Sunday night — when she “just freaked out” — and he developed a visible black eye, or a head bump... something nobody could find out about.

    She made sure he was hidden away from his sister in the am because he had visible (non-bloody) injuries.

    Maybe she purposely left her phone at home, heavily drugged Gannon, then drove around waiting for him to die of overdose. Used that time to scope out a dump site.

    But she misjudged the dosage... time was passing and he was still alive hours later as she looked anxiously out the window at Petco. With his injuries, he HAD to be out of sight before L got home, and she couldn’t do it anywhere that might have cameras or witnesses. If she was going to do it violently, she wanted privacy. At this point her “neat” plan had to be abandoned and things got messy. Kinda like when she changed to the rape story. Or moved the body 1400 miles away from its initial dump site. Her “plan B”s are not nearly as well thought out as her initial plans... chaotic, in fact.

    So she brought him home, laid him in his bed still drugged (I hope), and bludgeoned or stabbed him there. JMO

    RIP Gannon.

    I agree that based on the pictures in the AA of the blood spatter pattern, it appears that this poor child was the victim of a gunshot wound, very possibly to the head. JMO

    They may be best friends but get ready for Mama to throw HH under the bus for the murder!

    I love this board so much I still haven’t finished reading the AA. And I was a speed reading champion in middle school! Go figure.

    Sure, all true. I was just looking at her as a much more innocent victim prior to the AA being released. Not saying she's guilty of anything, but I'm disappointed in the details now that we can fill in some gaps. Hopefully she makes some better decisions in the future.

    I think they indicated the blood splatter could be the result of either one of the three. (stabbing, blunt force, or gunshot wound.)

    There was actually blood found behind the light fixture as well as an outline around it. Apparently she just cleaned around it instead of taking it off.

    Imo

    It was my understanding that she was fired on the proceeding Friday as well, but was wondering if there were some date inconsistencies. Just reread the AA. Documentation that she called off work was collected from her phone where she sent a text at 4:37 am. She also told AS that she was going to call off work. Maybe she had not told him about the job loss yet? Maybe this was a "decoy text" because she knew investigators would be looking at her phone--but again, why not just say she had a sick kid at home?
