Sillybilly ... Are my thoughts on possible scenarios, too random? Yeah, probably so. On opposite ends of the spectrum.....one being a possible witness and the other possible excuses a perp might use to explain injuries. I think those would be more obvious and memorable than the perp "calling in sick for work or cancelling an appointment." Those were the words spoken by the FBI agent Massa (?sp) when he was asking for people to call in.
