This screams foul play to me. What kind.... I don't know. I've read every page here about Joe and yet (maybe I missed a post) somehow I'm confused on where the three men were staying. NOT at the relative's ranch? If so, where then? But they began the run at the ranch? What? Did they run in the same direction, but one was ahead of Joe? Where was the third friend during this run? Something is missing from this story. IDK. Also, I wonder when Joe disappeared from SM (if he did, that is.) ANd what were the last known photos taken of him? So many questions. Sorry.
