    I haven't found any MSM suggesting that Merritt threatened and endangered the life of Andy Banks with a firearm. I wouldn't doubt it , but, haven't read anything like that yet.

    I don’t think a second person has been arrested yet.

    Most likely the *** is saying he acted alone and doesn’t know what happened to Andy.

    Doubtful the suspect already admitted to threatening Andy with a gun. I'm thinking there may be forensic evidence in the car that makes that obvious. Or, there could be video from a drive up ATM showing the gun?

    Maybe second person hasn't been "arrested" but rather being interrogated/questioned at this time

    According to warrants for his arrest for larceny, Justin Merritt threatened and endangered the life of Andy Banks with a firearm.
    Andy Banks is still MISSING. Call 911 if you have any information. https://t.co/sMCMZ246ds

    this MSM says he was threatened with a gun while stealing the car so they must have evidence of the threat - makes me think someone is talking..

    LEO must have evidence to make the charges, ie, fingerprints, video or else the suspect would be denying all of it, saying he bought the car from somebody else, dont know nothing about AB.

    At a church of all places. I’m hoping since JFM isn’t good at hiding things, they will find Andy soon. My chest physically hurts for his friends and family. (Some of his friends are mine too, this is terrible).

    Is it just me or is this glaringly brazen?! I think even I would have felt safe meeting in this very public area, broad daylight situation. Although as a woman I would not have gone alone, I could see most men I know doing it for sure! People never cease to amaze me. I am so sad and angry for this man and his family and friends.

    "Court records obtained by WDBJ7 indicate a search warrant for the Danville home of suspect Justin Merritt asked police to search for biological evidence such as hair, fibers, blood and bodily fluids, as well as guns, cell phones, ownership of Banks’s stolen SUV, knives and clothing.
    The search records indicate police seized a handgun, three cell phones, ammunition and a knife, among other items.
    According to court documents and CBS17, Banks, of North Carolina, arranged to sell his SUV to Merritt, then disappeared. Banks’s cell phone was later found along a road in North Carolina, and his SUV was found under a tarp on the same block as Merritt’s home in Danville."

    I can totally see this — I/we held him up and took car but I got no idea where he ran off to. Eye roll.

    I think we all suspected foul play, but it hits harder to see in black and white. :(
