    Thomas says the mark could have been caused by something being placed on her knee or her knee being up against something #mcvay

    We've already seen video of #McVay attempting to use the card at 7-Eleven on that day and time.

    Wow, lots of tweets from today, thanks for the hard work, Queenie. :) Sure wish we could have the live stream again, really would like to see his interview. Do you know why there was mention of no video of him dropping her off at a medical center? I don't recall that coming up and/or why he would.

    Some of McVay's interview was live streamed yesterday along with some of the testimony from one of the detectives.

    Hopefully it will be uploaded to YouTube by someone.

    Shouldn't be to hard of case to decide.

    So far from what I have gathered, the evidence against McVay is:

    1. Last to see Carie
    2. Last to call Carie
    3. Was video taped trying to use Carrie debt card
    4. Had possession of Carrie's car
    5. Drove Carries car to the same town as Carrie's body was found at the same time Carrie went missing
    6. Cell phone records place McVay in the vicinity of LaCross WI and Hastings MN
    7. There was only one shovel purchased at BigLots on the day McVay was traveling through Lacross WI
    8. Bar code sticker from same type of shovel that was purchased at BigLots was found at site where body was found
    9. The person who purchased the shovel also purchased a black travel bag
    10. The very same travel bag that was purchased at BigLots was photographed in McVay bedroom while search warrant was executed days after Carrie went missing. The travel bag appeared to be brand new.
    11. Same travel bag was recovered in McVay's parents garage at a later date after McVay moved out of his home and his belonging were moved to the garage
    12. Receipt found in travel bag put McVay at the Minneapolis airport same day Carrie was last seen (Significant I think because it shows McVay had the travel bag at this time and with him at the airport)
    13. Carpet fiber found in Carrie's hair match carpet fiber found in the trunk of Carrie's car
    14. Carpet fibers in trunk and hair will no doubt match carpet in McVay home (I think a witness will testify to this in a day or two)
    15. McVay preformed online searches the Hastings MN newspaper over 100 times after Carrie went missing and before the body was found. (Not sure if it was brought up in court, but I highly doubt McVay ever preformed an online search of the Hastings newspaper before Carrie disappears or likely never again after her body was found)
    16. Postmortem marking on Carrie's leg could have been caused by book in trunk of Carrie's car
    17. McVay's DNA could not be excluded from DNA found under Carrie's fingernails.

    What have I missed?
