    Take it for what it is worth...he goes off on tangents but has great visuals right now.

    Right - I am thinking the arrest warrant had that very specific timeframe of when it occurred (abduction) they must have had a reason for this - the start time could be related to video and the end time to her FitBit/Iphone - so if he knocked her out while she was running - he could have driven around with her in the trunk for awhile and not taken her to the cornfield right away. We have heard nothing regarding the state of the body (decomposition) and with all the rain.... IMO

    I so get what you're saying. GRRR! And if he hit her to get her in the car and then stabbed her later, I mean, how long can a "black-out" last? Also, if he gets angry easily, as he allegedly stated, how long can one sustain that amount of rage it would take to stab someone for a time frame such as that? jmo

    Great points. I previously shot down the carwash theory, as it seemed completely reckless. But this crime itself, was incredibly reckless, so I’m definitely open to that possibility now.

    That’s exactly what I think this is looking like.

    I had to step away from reading after Mollie was found. After now reading that Mollie died from "sharp force injuries", I wish I had stayed away longer.
    I have no more words. :(
    It only gets worse......dear God.

    CR looks like the devil himself IMO. Very evil person.

    But wouldn't there be footage of him cleaning that car? Aren't there cameras there?

    I also think he went to the car wash afterwards. LE was focused on the car wash for a reason.

    Hmm...instead of noticing he came home dirty, I wonder if anyone noticed he came home with a clean car.

    Just a hunch on my part. JMOpinion

    Look at the fox news video. Google maps makes it look like nothing is there, but when the reporter walks on the road there is multiple houses the desk anchor when they go back even says "Wow I thought the area would be empty etc". Maybe they are in the wrong spot, but the street he walks on def has more than one house.

    I want to find out details on her cell phone and Fitbit. Where are they, were they found with her? Was there additional electronic information that tied him to her?

    I wonder if he came home all wet. A self serve car wash would be a great way to thoroughly rinse one's clothes and self.

    I always feel very uncomfortable when employers also own the residence of their employees. (Other than say, nannies or housekeepers, etc, who live in the actual home of the employer.) It just seems to add another layer of anonymity to the employee ~ Especially when the dwellings are in such disrepair!

    And I still do not buy his story about the 'exchange' there. I think he ambushed her and off he went with her.

    I have no idea what the camera situation is. I simply wouldn’t be surprised if he did something that stupid, as this crime was as sloppy as it gets. Whether he did use the car wash is an unanswered question, but it does seem like something he would do.

    He probably kept the knife. My guess is that he carried a knife
    On the police map the two far right dots are significant, and may be related to fitbit data. The body was found SE of Guernsey, a location not on the map. I'm thinking that the two right dots are where Mollie was assaulted.

    Right. In his mind, it's "What? I was just washing my car that day. You can't pin anything on me. People wash cars all the time."

    It was probably a knife. However, as a farm worker, it could have just as easily been a screwdriver or even a machete ("sharp force injuries" include chopping injuries")

    The cause of death news is heart wrenching.

    IMO being a farm worker he probably had extra clothes/commonly had dirty clothes.

    Are there slaughterhouses in the area? We have some in an area of my city and the hog slaughterhouses especially would make finding a body by smell extremely difficult.
