    That isn't correct and I don't know where it has come from. I checked it on Google and it is only 21 miles to her BF place with another 9 miles max to their workplace. The VI has also confirmed it is only about a 30 min commute and she frequently only did two nighttime (7pm-7 a.m) shifts, often staying over in between at his place - she still had clothes and belongings at his place.

    She is doing her 30mile commute to work at 6p.m. and perhaps only once or twice per week - hardly a difficult commute outside of rush hour imo.

    The VI stated they worked the same shift Fri-Sat 7am-7pm but on different floors. He said that was when he last saw her IIRC and I guess she then went home to sleep Sat morning as he did.

    While I don’t agree on the 90 mins, it has been stated to me by someone who is more familiar with the area than I am, that the commute would have been lengthy. I based my calculations off of googles maps, but that doesn’t account for traffic.

    But just to put this out there, her commute would have fallen during rush hour on Friday’s. Michigan expressways rush hour starts about 4 and lasts til about 630-7, depending. Not to mention, Friday night traffic in general-people going to dinner, shopping at the end of the work week.

    True but she would be travelling against the flow leaving Detroit area surely? Also, she may not have always worked on a Friday. VI mentioned she was a special type of staff (Contingency ? IIRC )

    We cannot state her commute was 90mins as a fact, and then call it a Red Flag. It isn't. She often only worked 2 days a week and VI said she often stayed over at his when working, so that would also lessen the commuting further.

    Just because it hasn't been said doesn't mean she didn't go, before she went home. We can only speculate she did or did not go. Maybe they carpooled from his place? We don't know. We know she went home that's all. I don't think we have a time and we have conflicting info whether she saw either her mother or father at all before she went to sleep and then jogging at approx 2p.m.

    It's strange to me about this uncertainty over Saturday morning.

    The Crime Watch Daily interview as done in March of this year, and it's coming up on the second anniversary of Ally's death this July. During the ex-boyfriend's segment of the interview, he said: "She was planning on coming over that morning."

    In an earlier post, you said that Ally and Wes last saw one another at the hospital on different floors during their 12-hour shift. There is no mention of Ally having gone to the apartment (that they had shared at one time) after work that morning. Presumably, Ally went home (her parents' home in Holly) and Wes went to the apartment in Wixom.

    If Ally had been to the apartment that morning, why wouldn't Wes have mentioned that in the CWD interview? Instead, he said that she was planning to come on Saturday morning. If Ally got home and went to bed by 8:00AM, was running at 2:30PM (maybe 6 hours sleep), when would she have had time to go to Wixom and return home? I doubt she went to visit Wes on Saturday morning. :moo:

    I don't know - we are presuming. You would have to ask the VI - that's my point. Planning and doing are different. Wixom is on her way home anyway so only VI knows.

    Eta I quoted VI about when they last met. His post and actual wording is up thread.

    I think it's safe to say that Oakland County Sheriff's Department and Michigan State Police know whether or not Ally was at the Wixom apartment after work on Saturday morning before she headed to her parents' home in Holly. I don't necessarily believe everything that the VI has told is.

    Perhaps *not* so ironic.
    I know white sedans are very common, but still....
    We know Perps like to show up for searches, funerals, etc.
    I could envision them getting a thrill by driving by.
    If I were LE, I'd run the plate.

    Out of the 3 suspects, FB, NB and WS, who last saw her alive on that Saturday? Do we even know that?

    The VI has failed one polygraph, another was inconclusive, and he’s not been ruled out a suspect in his ex girlfriends murder. They were broke up. He’s said numerous things that have been contradicted and IMO only seems to reply to posts that he’s able to control the narrative of. Am I saying he’s not credible? No. He very well may be, but we have nothing to prove his credibility besides his own dialogue. Many of us have asked him questions to help clarify things we have questions about and get ignored.

    I understand her parents have not been ruled out as suspects either, but I tend to lean towards trusting a mother who said her daughter had clothes purchased for a trip to Meet up w/an old love interest. Those are facts that LE could have and probably did easily corroborate.

    From everything I can tell-Ally was moving on with her life. She had been at her parents house for several months, had future plans that point to her not being interested romantically with Wes anymore.

    The EX boyfriends alibi is he was sleeping.

    If I had to take a guess and that’s only what it is-a guess. LE probably checked the pings on his cell phone which should have confirmed his where abouts when he was sleeping. Yet he’s still not ruled out as a suspect. So maybe his phone was off while he was asleep, thus no cell phone pings.

    Also, he’s said he didn’t find out about her murder until after he got to work that night . I dont know about anyone else, but if I was on great terms with my ex and something happened to me, I can imagine my parents would reach out to them before I got to work.

    MOO COW JMHO

    Three suspects? Investigators have indicated that no one has been ruled out and that anyone who knew Ally is a suspect.

    From the Crime Watch Daily interview segment with Lt. Shaw:

    And anyone who knew Ally Brueger is considered a suspect.
    "Everyone is in the game," said Lt. Shaw.

    Is it better to fail a polygraph or refuse to take one? I don't know. Noone is ruled out - that's all we really know.

    Who saw Ally last ? Why did she leave her phone? Who saw her go on the jog? Did she say anything before she died? Who saw the white sedan? Where was the surveillance video taken? Did she know her killer?

    Hoping for some answers.
