F.Y. I. Supposedly when J.B. Beasley and Tracie Hawlett stopped at that Big Little gas station in Ozark, AL on the night of July 31, 1999, they ran into a woman and her daughter who were there to buy sodas. Not only did J.B. Beasley get directions, but she also got "stoplight" directions. The woman, Ms. Meritt I think her name was, told her how many stoplights it would take to get to 231. I think Ms. Meritt was off by one stoplight, telling J.B. one too many or too few stoplights, I cannot remember. There was an interview with J.B. Beasley's sister Jackie that told all this information. I think theories and opinions change the more information you find out about a case. After seeing the interview with J.B. Beasley's sister, I started to think that maybe J.B. Beasley and Tracie Hawlett were not "lost" once they left the gas station at all. But if they stopped somewhere like a fast food place or any other place, wouldn't a witness have come forward to say, "Yes, I remember seeing two girls who fit the description that night." So the only theory that makes sense in terms of directions is that J.B. Beasley and Tracie Hawlett stopped the car somewhere willingly on the way home. The rest stop is an example of one place. Maybe the killer used some ruse to get them to trust him. Supposedly Tracie Hawlett had a scratch on her arm and even though it is assumed it came from the mud, water, and brush with briars they walked through, I thought maybe it was a scratch from an animal? Is there a way for investigators to determine the difference between a scratch from a plant versus a scratch from an animal? But then when you remember that J.B. Beasley's car was parked on Herring Avenue by the killer, that means that unless the killer had an accomplice or drove his own car behind them, the only way to get back to the rest stop would be walking all the way from Herring Avenue. That seems like a long walk. Is it even possible to walk that far and not be seen by a witness?
