    I can't find where LE actually confirmed SM's bike was found. IIRC, LE did mention an item that they'd found during the road search and that it wasn't the bike. Ergo.... they haven't confirmed that a bike or biking is a feature of this case. Feel free to correct me if you interpret the Sheriff a different way.
    The only stuff we "know" about a bike or biking in this case is hearsay.

    I've not seen the 5/25/20 Crimeonline article referenced but I think the implication was not that they were taking a holiday off but that the 3-day search on the private property was concluded (Sunday, May 24), and they were also about to release the house back to the family which I think happened either Monday or Tuesday. MOO

    To those much more savvy of LE than I.....

    I ask you:

    What do you make of LE showing their hand by investigating the former work site of BM?

    That was a clear: 'make my day' kinda thing to me.....

    They really didn’t have much of a choice. That location had to be searched if they had a reasonable belief that Suzanne’s body was there.

    If they didn’t say the search was related to Suzanne’s disappearance and that the property owner was not connected, then it would have potentially led to speculation that the property owner was involved.

    You can’t hide something like that, and I don’t think there was any other play.

    Somehow they were able to keep it on the DL because the public didn't even know they were there until the second day.

    They're probably wishing they could bottle that - whatever it was that they did or didn't do - to keep the media at bay.

    Teenager girls are especially liberal with smartphone snapshots, and she's got teenage girls. Then, there are photos from church, the neighborhood grocery, company get togethers, good times with friends, fellow bikers, the dentist, the bank drive through, the atm....

    In order to conduct a thorough investigation, you are sometimes forced to show your hand.

    The Morphew residence being searched by crime scene investigators is another example. In that instance, law enforcement tried to downplay the significance of that.

    Incidentally, the same thing happened in the Stauch case. Basically, “nothing to see here.”

    Who has access to release pictures to LE, for posters, etc....?

    The family, right?

    Who didn't want any recent pictures released....?

    Who wanted SM to look how she 'used to'...?

    I don’t think for a moment it’s a cold case.
    LE need her body or a confession. The psychological pressure on BM must be huge, I’m sure he realises no one whatsoever believes his theory, the silence everywhere is deafening.
    Who will blink first?
    So sad for his daughters and people who have/are supporting him, what an insidious position they have been put in.

    Good point. ^^^

    I believe there are more recent photos than the one taken in Feb 2019.

    Wonder what the recent photos showed ?

    A woman in fairly good health, since she was in remission...or someone frail and changed ?

    Because it seems from the husband's video plea that he wanted people to know that Suzanne looked just like her older photos and so of course a kidnapper took her !
    The "...Your girls need you..." bit was off-putting --imo-- as if Suzanne left them purposefully.

    So --in essence-- no one took her, and she didn't run away to be with a new love.
    Imo she is an attractive woman but the photos are old, and maybe she looked completely different, and needed to rest often ?

    My friend is in remission and is tired easily and has to sit down alot, she can't be on her feet for very long.
    What have Suzanne's immediate family said about her ?
    I know-- we don't know and maybe never will, which is o.k.

    But did they think she had the strength to go mountain biking ?
    Or did they think she needed rest and more healing ?
    Imo.

    "Insidious" is a good term for this case.
    ("proceeding in a gradual, subtle way, but with harmful effects ; treacherous, crafty...")

    I'm not even close to having reached the "tearing my hair out" stage yet…it's still early days in the investigation.

    If we find ourselves here a month from now without SM having been located and/or an arrest being made, though, I'll be sporting this look:

    [​IMG]

    My biggest concern is that this may very well end up being a no-body case.

    Even if it does, though, no-body cases can be prosecuted.
    And not just prosecuted, but won.
    And not just won, but won in overwhelming fashion.

    "No body, no crime" is a fallacy.

    Just ask DA Dan May.

    (I was going to say, "Ask Frazee," but he's actually too stupid to realize that, the fact that he was sentenced to LWOP + 156 years, notwithstanding. PF is still probably sitting stewing in his cell, trying to figure out how the jury managed to find him guilty).

    Part of the answer would be the spot where the bike was found (if in fact the bike has been found). Bike tire prints, Suzanne's foot prints, actors foot prints, drag marks and tire prints. If that was all found and documented, if I were the actor, I would be very worried. Vehicle tire prints, bike tire prints and foot prints have something in common, "accidental indicators" that can tie the prints directly to a particular person, bike or vehicle as accurately as finger prints or DNA. These have been the downfall of many an actor who thought they were slick and had pulled off the perfect crime.
