    Where was this confirmed? This is the first I've heard of her not being able to swim out

    They supposedly got in the boat at 7 ish. According to Mr Baggett she got out of the boat at 10:00am. That was a mile and half downstream. Mr Baggett continued on for a couple more miles which took him 10 hours. (Hmmmm).
    He reported her missing after he went home and took a shower. About 10:15
    According to one of the articles

    Yeah. Lover boy's timeline has changed with the ebb and flow of the Tallahatchie River.

    I like your theories.
    The two clowns shove off in the SS Leaky Minnow, holes plugged with bubble gum. The gum held for a few hours, but by 10:00 a.m. there was water coming in and the good crew (of 2) and tub were in peril.

    In my part of the south (not nearly as south as this), a river bottom is the area of land that’s flat where a river goes through. I don’t think it meant the bottom of a river. So, walking out of the river bottom would mean walking out of the low area back up to the highway.

    Yes! I'm not from the south but I would also consider the "river bottom" not to mean the literal deepest point of the actual river, but to be more of a general reference to the lower lying areas immediately surrounding the river/creek/slough/marshy area being referenced.

    I’m in southeast Arkansas, quite close to the MS River. I agree...they most likely mean the low area where the river may have ran through. The river bottom can be dry one moment & water flowing through it the next esp near a river’s channel. It’s usually just the “hulled out” or low lying area where the water has ran through.
    As you stated, she prob walked up a bank/slope/levee.

    Yes, the leaky boat excuse was in the 1st story.

    They also said her phone was given to his son, who dropped them off, because they were going to call him for a ride.

    BBM. Well, probably not “she” imo. But I know what you mean.

    Not his son. Whoever dropped them off (supposedly) was the friend. He never called that friend to come get them, which had been the plan. Instead, he called his son to pick them up.

    You are correct. Back in the threads someone has posted photos of the area.

    That’s how I had remembered it, too, but I confess I haven’t gone back through msm links, and my memory isn’t the greatest.
