    Or they use their children's SSN's.
    I worked in collections where this happened. There was a lot of fraud.

    What makes you think that Mollie chose to run East on 385 Ave? Isn't it equally possible that she was abducted at Middle and Boundary, pulled into the car, and that something else happened at 1900 385 Ave?

    Agreed. IF he hit her with the car, it was to incapacitate her, not a moving violation. JMO

    Definitely a good thing to remember not to update your life in real-time.

    But I don't think this necessarily applies to Mollie. She wasn't attacked at the house, she was attacked on her regular jogging route even when she's not alone at home.

    Some women will create two facebooks. CR’s ex girlfriend may have done this and blocked him from the real one. He may have harassed her, etc. I am sure men do this too. Usually one is more public and the other personal. JMO

    Agreed and I believe it was said in the PC that he kept to himself. Not a quote just what I remember. And for good reasons IMO.

    So based on where the actual assault/abduction happened which per LE was on the 1900 block of 385th Avenue, was that MT's route of finishing her jog at her mom's house and thus picking up the car?

    If you look at the case map of locations, yes 385th takes you out past the denser neighborhoods where houses are more sparse. However had she been heading to LC's, she would have turned left on 185th ran up to Highway 6 and turned left again and made her way back to Brooklyn proper. It would've just been 1-2 miles back down Hwy 6 towards Bear Drive where her mom's home was. Then she'd eat dinner with them and take the car for the following morning.

    I say this because if she wasn't on her way back to LC's via something close to that route, 385th doesn't have a turn that takes you back towards Brooklyn for a long while. I suppose she could have just stopped and done an about face but going on a continuous route makes more sense. Had she kept going, it would have had Mollie jogging after dark which is something friends/fam said she rarely, if ever did.

    If that is the case, even more heartbreaking because her jog was like 80% finished and she was probably less than 20 minutes from LC's house.

    We found out she isn't an ex, though.

    Is that his real name? We will never know for sure. The name combinations (they use two last names including the mother's maiden name) vary widely. None of their documents follow formats.
    I have seen many social security cards that have been bought on the street in the US. They have real numbers of American citizens and the fraudulent name on them. So if the number is run through a computer they come back valid. Employers have no way of knowing they are fake. Many, many fake documents are available out there including driver licenses, passports..etc.

    Could he have used a gps app and it saved the route and LE found it BUT they wanted to make it clear he didn't have to use his app and remembered just fine how to get to Mollie! (one of several holes punched in the "blackout" defense he is floating?

    I don’t buy for a second that he came all the way to bumfu@K Iowa to live a proper life.
    You can do THAT anywhere.

    Her body was found SE of Guernsey.

    Her fitbit may have indicated that her heart stopped at 1900 385 Ave.

    I can see someone who is afraid of deportation lashing out in desperation, especially if they are unstable already.

    When someone blacks out they're able to function as normal during the blackout period, they just have no recollection of what they did when they come out of it. He would have been capable of realizing that the phone would have to be shut off to hide it's location. Of course it's also possible that the music was still playing and he simply shut off the phone to stop it.

    I don't know that I buy the blackout story, but it is possible that a fit of rage could trigger a blackout. At any rate it's not something that would get him off because he would have been aware that what he was doing was wrong at the time. Unless he tried to claim multiple personality disorder, that is.

    Sorry if this was addressed before, I wasn't on here last night and am just catching up.

    Morning to Mollie's tribe!

    Do we know if LE impounded his car? If she had blood on her than good chance that he had blood on him too. There may have been traces in the place where we he was living.
