    I couldn't help thinking about the many, many, many times I've heard>> sexual assault is all about POWER and control.

    And murdering two helpless young girls also is about power, and control over another's life.

    I can't imagine they think this guy has a conscience. I get the feeling this is directed at this guy's family members to speak up.

    I also remember Mike Patty quoted saying the murder happened quickly. That was among those early quotes that don’t get discussed much anymore..... along with Libby fought back hard .... and her phone was pinging all over town.

    There’s probably some useful stuff in those early news reports if anyone has time to go back & look thru them.

    ETA - I forgot to write my actual point! Which was the weight involved in carrying the two girls around seems like too much for one guy on his own to manage, esp quickly.

    In my opinion the b@st@rd has some kind of tool, like a hammer. Or a stick, or a club :(

    I agree about the phone, I think he lured them to the descending part of the bridge, pushed one off at about 10 ft, got control of the other and moved the attack deeper toward the creek where they were found. I think he surely would have got control of that phone very quickly.

    I am with you on that. So much so that I shifted my focus to the tense. :(

    The police have stated that he walks weird on the bridge because it is rotting wood with holes and gaps. He is just watching his step. There is no handicap or anything identifiable in his walk.

    I do not know if he would bring a cell/mobile phone with him if he planned to kill even if it was a burner. Surely he would be too concerned about being traced?

    It makes me think there was more than one witness. For whatever reason, until now, the one who sat with the forensic artist for the newly released sketch had less credibility maybe? But now there is a 90 degree shift. Still not sure about that.

    In “The Shack” the main character’s wife refers to God as “papa”. If you are right about that being the song “big poppa” that’s an interesting coincidence. I’ll have to go listen to the song- I can’t remember how it starts.

    It is not necessarily his "gait." Maybe we are using the wrong term. It is the mechanics of his "step." The purposeful lifting and planting.
    Also, the nearest major town is Lafayette. The home of Purdue. I am there all the time as my son chose to reside there after schooling. I was jsut there yesterday.
    In Lafayette, you dont see the homeless. That would not be permitted by police. They would have to go outside the city for any camping. I always stay at hotels on exit 172. Delphi is at the opposite end of town at exit 175. It is like 15-20 miles from the city center. Closer on Hwy 65. Wouldn't take you long to get there. I don't like to marginalize any group but I could see transients going there to camp.

    I don’t know how to search twitter but I know HLN tweeted it sometime during the PC. I think it was after the unveiling of the new sketch but I can’t say that without a doubt.

    The second drawing is an eyewitness account. I thought that is what I read.

    I don’t know if you were here in the early days the debates we had at length about his head whether it was hair, a hoodie or a hat were intense and lengthy. The beating a dead horse emoji was used often.
