I would like to add one thing on the 'noise' factor. I have not seen it addressed, so forgive me if I missed someone addressing it. It dawned on me when I was watching an interview with one of the family members and you could not hear them because of the trains that kept coming by. I assume they run at all hours so this could be one of the factors why you could not hear someone creeping around if they waited until a train came by. Please forgive me if my stupid is showing. ALL the astro's here are amazing and so many others that help to make this the best of the rest, thanks for all your hard work. It does just amaze me to watch how it comes together.
Absolutely could be a factor in why nothing was heard! Very good thinking, by and by! Wonder if we should research railroad schedules!
Nah, too much work, and wouldn't help identify the perp! But "the dogs going to the RR track", if verified by police, is very interesting!
