I was tossing & turning in the wee hours of the morning today and I finally gave way to the inevitable - staring @ the ceiling and thinking more about this case. I'm thinking this morning it's a "forest for the trees" situation w/ this case. In sifting through the details I've been overlooking the basic facts and not allowing myself to be objective. * Toddler is missing for 30+ days before reported * Toddler's mother AND grandparents, in the home where she resides all behave suspiciously * The car registered to the grandmother and driven by the mother contains evidence of the toddler's death * The backyard of the residence is indicated by cadaver dogs If I were OSCO, one of the things I'd do now is obtain a search warrant for the past two calenar years' water bills for 4937 Hopespring Drive (assuming they do not have a well) and note the usage for each month. If there is even the slightest indication that the water usage in June/July '08 would support filling the pool, I would have it drained and the ground underneath it searched. A slow fill spread over two billing periods might be hard to distinguish, but, when compared to other months to factor out sprinkler usage, etc. it should stand out. Considering (a) the basic evidence and (b) the resources being expended on the case already - I think its time to drain the pool.
