    But it perfectly matched Barry's handwriting.

    I agree with a previous poster that speculated it was a dropped bagged food meal. Some hikers/backpackers will bag food & label it.

    Although, it did give me horrible flashbacks to the Sam Sayers case and baggies with supplies being littered off trails all over in the hopes she would find one. She went missing during a day hike in the summer of 2018.

    We have no way to know what was or was not preserved as evidence, but considering the ERT (evidence recovery team) from the FBI was brought in, I wouldn’t take BM’s word at face value that everything was screwed up.

    Regardless though, my question was not about the sheriff, it was what do you feel is missing from this investigation, considering the various LE partners involved?

    I can’t fault him for talking about her in the past tense at this point. I am.

    ETA, now if he was doing that on day one or two, different opinion.

    If it looks like a duck and walks like a duck...it’s likely a duck.

    Another great saying involving animals - if you hear hooves, look for horses, not zebras.

    I understand there are some that wish in this case there was a zebra involved, but I’m pretty comfortable for now assuming we’ve got a good ol’ horse instead.

    Yeah BM seems like a bit of a bs-er in the clip. I was on board for a while, when he talked about LE totally screwing up the bike recovery scene. If they did haul it up without even taking a few photos, that could be concerning. Then he took control-his guys searching, his Army Ranger buddy and the 400 deployments-although Rangers specifically undertake missions-if I want to give him the benefit of the doubt, 400 missions, which is plausible. But why would he speak to this guy, yet never put out a plea on FB, or with a trusted member of the press, a family friend maybe. It’s like he’s running his construction crew to solve the case of his missing wife cause he can do it better than LE.

    I wish Tyler had asked him about the search at the construction site.

    There's another encounter before this where he had his selfi stick out. BM left, then came back and spoke with him. I think he sensed it. moo

    Let’s say just for arguments sake, BM is innocent. If so, he may indeed be angry with the sheriff if the sheriff allowed others to touch the bike and/or allowing others to contaminate the scene of an abduction. I’m not saying he is innocent. All I’m saying is if he is, I imagine he is angry at the world right now.

    Yes, he had nothing good to say about the sheriff's office. It was "his people" that are doing the ground work. Sounds like he said he came back at 9p that evening.

    Did you compare the handwriting on the bag and note? They are both Barry’s writing. Don’t know what it means at all.

    I wonder if what he has told this stranger jives with his story to LE. He is a guy that is used to laying things out how he wants others to see them. MOO

    Thanks, Everyone!

    Just wanted to make sure my ears weren't deceiving me.

    I couldn't believe what I was hearing.

    I'm gobsmacked.

    He might as well have just come out and said, "Let me set the stage for you."

    Some members of the 75th Army Ranger Company "deploy" every night while "on duty". In that type of environment and terminology, 400 deployments would be equal to about two years of service time. I don't believe it is an exageration.
    <modsnip: no MSM link to support info stated as fact> IMO

    Ive had a tough time letting go of a possible mountain lion mainly because of all the areas in the entire country where that could have happened, the area around her home is one area where I could see it possibly happening.

    The part about an officer seeing a moutain lion go in front of a vehicle is interesting because LE should know if that is true or not.

    But I agree that search dogs should have been able to pick up a trail of her getting dragged away if that was the case. And if a mountain lion did attack her on that road then would the bike have ended up that far off the road? Possibly if it charged and pounced at her from the side.

    I think I am going to have to go back to what the Sheriff said. I think he said there were no signs of that and it was unlikely.
