Thanks for posting this, I am going to listen to brendan's interview to get an idea of when things got mentioned to him BEFORE he said them. Also, just wanted to float a potential theory as to why Avery might have went under hood, but am open to other suggestions as this is just throwing something out there, nothing I feel strongly about. Is it possible that Avery opened the hood to disconnect the battery ? Reason might be that you wouldn't want the car alarm to go off in the case that something bumped the car ? Or in case the vehicle had some kind of onStar gps tracking mechanism ? I don't know enough about that kind of thing to know if either makes sense just theorizing that something that required the battery would be the motivation for disconnecting it. Or might that be some kind of normal protocol in the junkyard for some reason ? Anyone know ? Another thought about this, is that it is also a reason why someone might take their gloves off. I myself have done this in the winter when opening the hood of a car/truck, to find that often hard to find lever that pops it up.
