    Perhaps. But hearing something from someone who heard something from someone who's not involved in the case?

    Rumor.

    From the link (which btw is noted to be a blog).

    You're right it's only a rmour. No confirmed details given by LE and yet that it where the search is focused. hmmmmm

    Well I know one thing. If I was innocent I sure as heck would've objected to those photos placed on the flyer. If LE gave me a good enough reason for my photo to be on the flyer I would've insisted on a more flattering/natural one, not photos taken from stillshots at the press conferences. I dunno, I just think that whole flyer thing is strange.

    As far as evidence and charging her, give it time. :cow:

    exactly. Her opinion like the rest of us. All news sources use "experts" to help analyse stories. But she is not involved (in the LE loop) on this case. Her expertise is that she is a former prosecutor. So she can opine but it is simply that. Opinion, exactly as you have said "just like us".

    The problem comes in when people who aren't vigilant (not referring to you so please don't get bristly) hear the opinions and rather than do their homework, take the opnion as gospel truth.

    We don't know that Terri was the last person seen with Kyron --- because that's not what Gates said.

    Dumb question, maybe, but why is it ok to post on the other threads what AH says. He doesn't always, have much other then what his "sources" tell him and it is often wrong?

    Word gets around the police department very fast. Williamette week... which is, again, a newspaper... had five... again, FIVE... independent LE sources tell them the same thing.

    It wasn't something they just heard from "someone."

    It would be remiss to label it a rumor. Unless you really think that "started on an unmoderated forum" and information from 5 LE are the exact same thing.

    Umm, no, the Willamette Week is not a blog. It is a bona fide, weekly newspaper. They have an online edition, just like The Oregonian. The Willamette Week won a Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting in 2005, by the way.

    Where are we getting that the Williamette Weekly is a blog? It's a 35 year old newspaper. They've won some pretty impressive awards. Below is a page full of them.

    http://advertise.wweek.com/

    (snip)

    Willamette Week is one of the most decorated weekly newspapers in America. It is the only weekly newspaper ever to win the Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting. Every year WW wins numerous regional and national awards, a few of which are shown above.

    Part of that article spoke to how Terri cared for her sick friend's child. That is not self-centered.

    The only "news" we have of this is from Williamette Weekly. Other news sources who have picked up this information and re-printed it have all listed this blog as their source of information. Since WW's sources are unnamed "secret" sources, and since not one other news organization has been able to come out and say that they've spoken to the secret sources and verified the info, it is "iffy info" in my opinion.

    My own personal sense of what is really evidence won't allow me to integrate information from unnamed sources published in a blog. That goes for whether the blog agrees with my theory or not!

    I didn't say the paper was a blog. Just that article is on a page described by the paper as a blog.

    Bingo. (And... most of their awards are for investigative reporting.)

    Notice that when Gates was asked about Terri's cell phone pings, he didn't deny it. He just said "I don't control what papers report." If it wasn't true, he would have said it wasn't. Instead he dodges the question.

    I don't think LE is just going with a "wicked stepmother" theory. No doubt they have looked into the alibis/whereabouts at relevant times of all the parental figures. Maybe the others have been more easily corroborated by other witnesses or information. Maybe hers has not, which is unfortunate, since she was the last of the parents known to be with Kyron. We don't really know, though we know LE has not named her a POI or suspect. For all we know, she has told LE that there has to be someone who saw leave the school alone, and that if they look harder, they can find them, thus the questionnaire. Other than about 3 facts LE has confirmed, everything is speculation at this point. It might only worse if LE was revealing more.

    Can we stop using words like hideous and venom to define posts of those with differing opinions? There are several people doing this. I am sure that everyone here cares about Kyron.

    Nooooooo..... but I don't think rumors floating about a police department are necessarily going to be facts, either. If they want to quote first-hand anonymous sources directly involved in the case, then I'll reconsider.

    I believe they said the last person to see Kyron...so unless she saw him with someone else, it amounts to the same thing.

    ok with him, w/e, you were asking why the other parents weren't being crucified and I was giving my two cents as to why I thought so, also none of the other parents have their picture on a flier provided by LE to the community.

    He hasn't confirmed or denied anything in weeks. He is just sticking to his pattern, and while some may believe that his statement can be read to mean the cell phone ping story is true, it is absolutely as easy to read his statement to mean the cell phone ping store is NOT true!

    http://blogs.wweek.com/news/2010/06...yron-horman-focuses-on-step-mom-cell-records/

    The story about cell phone pings was published on a page of WW that is clearly labeled as a blog. It's in the addy!!

    Because not one of their sources is involved in this investigation at all, I totally agree with you.

    Yes I agree. I also think the numerous divorces and children in and out of homes shows some sort of lack of attachment.
