    Do you have a link or source for this fact regarding the lights? Regarding the second question, I would suggest not. Too many people/cars/videos around.

    Gestalt figures

    If told that the image you should see is a duck, most people will see a duck. If told that the figure you should see is a rabbit, most people will see a rabbit. Everyone eventually can see both duck and rabbit, but what they perceive first depends to a large extent on what they expect or are otherwise influenced to see.[/QUOTE]

    But if you asked me if I see a truck in this picture I would tell you no. Its too distorted and blurred.

    All I see in the area circled in red is a Darth Vader helmet. Has that been ruled out, lol? But, seriously, what do others say they are seeing here?

    I can guarantee that whether she was moving forward or stopped, whether the truck was going 1 m.p.h or 100 m.p.h., regardless of what part of the truck struck what part of the bike, whether the roads were wet or whether they were dry, that if Mickey was struck, there would be some forward movement to her bike and body from being struck from behind. She may go under the truck, she may go on top of the hood, but either way, there is still forward movement of her body and bike. She only ends up under or over the truck because the truck was moving at a greater velocity than Mickey was, but still at a point that was forward of the initial impact. MOO

    I'm not sure this is accurate. I clearly see evidence markers, at least three of them, anywhere from 3 to 15 feet back from the direction the bike was presumably traveling.

    With all due respect, this picture alone shows me nothing. The truck in the picture blocks any view of where the initial point of impact was. If you are merely saying that a bike can end up under a truck when struck, I would agree, but it would only be under the truck at a point further along from the point of initial impact in the direction the truck was moving.

    The second counters on the timestamps were on the surveillance cameras from the businesses (strip mall) on University at Azalea:

    1:49:38 AM Re: Hooptie -- ruled out

    I don't know how much faith I have in all of these clocks. The clock in my car is different then the clock on my phone is different than the clock on my microwave is different than the clock where ever..... I seriously doubt the clocks at Artmosphere, Taco Bell, or any of the cameras she is captured on are in sync either. At best, the times are "loose", IMO.

    You are certainly entitled to that opinion. My own opinion is that the family hopefully and understandably does not read every single post. So when they do come on and just read what is immediately in front of them, they likely catch some of the wild speculation and conjecture that is going on and form their opinion of WS based only off of that and therefore don't want ACI to have a "web presence" and think that an interview would be "foolish". Just my own opinion.

    A lot of us agree with you. My neighbor, the one I mentioned earlier who works for the city, actually LAUGHED at me when I told her about the posts speculating the bike was under the truck. She was familiar with the forum, had been one of our many visitors here, and her opinion gave me some insight into why the Shunick's think it would be foolish to participate with us.....

    Wodalo is not a verified expert in any area. What he has to say has no more weight behind it than do any posts by any unverified person. He may SAY he is an expert in enhancing pictures, but unless he is verified, we have no way of knowing he is telling the truth.
    I, personally, find his posts interesting, but no way do I think he has accurately described what happened.

    In regards to the "bike under the truck" believers...
    (since I won't attempt to "see" anything in the blurry pics anymore....)

    This is MS's bike.

    [​IMG]
    This is reported to be a close replica...
    [​IMG]

    Here is the Missing Mickey flyer with both pictured.
    http://www.google.com/imgres?um=1&h...81&start=64&ndsp=13&ved=1t:429,r:9,s:64,i:314

    Did her bike have reflectors on the wheels?
    Are they added later?

    Hard to tell as the wheels were moving in the pic with
    her riding it.

    Do we know for a fact she had a headlight? (I thought so...)
    That was obviously put on at a later date.

    Notice the handle bars! They are much shorter than
    what I was thinking! (tried to find some info on a "Madison Schwinn" bike, with no luck)

    They look to be about the same length as Mickey's hip to knee length.
    I took a hip to knee length myself. (mind you I am 5'8")
    It was 16"...

    Does anyone know how to locate specifics on bike models?

    These pics I CAN see clearly!

    I know its an obvious statement, but not everything in the movies is as it seems. Could Mickey be thrown on top of the truck? Yes Could she move backwards when struck from behind? No I also do not see Mickey nor the bike under the truck. In fact, the pictures have been so messed with I could not even confirm they are the same as the originals. JMO

    I probably won't be posting for a while, as I'm going on vacation for a couple of weeks. Mickey and her family will remain in my prayers, and hopefully there will be good news when I return. Keep on sleuthing. God bless you guys and gals. Just a reminder that looks can be deceiving. I remember finding this image weeks ago, very soon after Mickey disappeared, and it stays in the back of my mind. http://www.myspace.com/geyzerkaizer/photos/2793705#{%22ImageId%22%3A2793705} :seeya:

    Do you have a link or source saying they were tampered with by LE or someone else? The only people I have seen admit to tampering with the pictures are those on WS that have stated as much, that they changed this or that and then posted them. And that's not they shouldn't but only that they did change or alter them from the original content.

    Well said and likely the reason it would be "foolish" for them to be interviewed on WS.

    I figured 15 mph, it's a good steady pace in a city with redlights, stop signs, and on a fixed gear.

    You are correct, I made some basic assumptions that I do not believe are too far fetched. First, that in order for the truck to get to the point it is at in that picture, it had to have moved at some point in time at some rate of speed. It did not magically appear there. I also presume that the vehicle was traveling forward in order to get to the point it is at. I feel that is a fairly safe presumption as a vehicle traveling backwards would certainly garner way too much attention and is unlikely to the extreme. Given those factors, as I indicated before, I believe it is physically impossible for Mickey or Mickey's bike to be under the truck or over the truck as shown in the picture released by LE. JMO

    Also, can you provide a link please that 59 seconds elapsed between the two stills? Thanks.

    Everyone would have been looking at him wondering "What in the heck is he doing?" and thus a ton of witnesses.
