    I agree. Maybe he's trying to drum up business?
    A member of the Sheriff dept. was with them at the time of the search in August. One would hope he will speak up about all this. Something is just weird about this.

    This is my theory too. There are WAY too many holes in his story. Also, don't forget that Amber's mom and dad have said numerous times that family members and police are the only ones they trust to talk about the case - meaning they don't trust the PIs.

    Why would the scent have stopped at the library?

    Nevertheless, if it did stop at the library, and LE took it from there, why do people find it so incredible that they could track or figure out where the body was? I mean, especially if the FBI was involved, they would have the training to detect areas to focus on. And they probably brought in some experts. I don't even discount the idea that psychics like in the program "Haunted Evidence" could have aided them. But that's just me.

    According to the dog's handler, the dog tracked her scent 3 miles north of the library up Pala Temecual Road to about a half mile of where her body was found. Still that area is vast and it would be like finding a needle in a haystack. I'm with the people that believe it was forensic computer evidence of some sort --gps, computer--that led them to her.

    So it appears to have gone from his tip led the LE to the body to it's possible but not likely his tip led LE to the body. We figured out that much.

    What do you think they would track? After the first two dogs supposedly tracked Amber to the pala reservation area and the library, several months later FBI dogs were brought in and from what has been reported couldn't replicate any of the first two dogs findings. And psychic are usually good at solving crimes on TV shows, but what case do you know of when a psychic actually led police to the exact location of a body, instead of claiming "it's in a shallow grave in the wooded area," or something along these lines.
    Of course when the body is found it's a good chance it were in a shallow grave in a wooded area, so psychics could say they were right all alone.

    About as close as you could be without working in the DA's office.

    I feel so sad right now. Even though I 'knew' Gardner killed Amber, hearing the details are sickening. I can't imagine what the families had to go through to make this decision. I am glad though that the families have each other to talk to. No one else could fully understand their he!!.

    Jbean you were right on and I was right off! I heard attorney Kerry Steigerwalt on the news today stating that an "independent attorney" came forward with the information to LE about Gardners willingness to tell LE the location of the body--ie this attorney brokered the deal at the time--not his court appointed counsel. And, an independent attorney was mentioned at the plea hearing today. So I think there is a little bit more to the story than we now know.

    I was really hoping this was not the case so they could still go for the death penalty.

    The thng is here in CA no one really ever gets executed anyway and the endless appeals process is far more expensive than a life sentence. PLUS I don't think you can appeal a plea so it's a done deal.

    I am happy that this was the outcome. I'm just glad that the families have closure and that they do not have to go through years of trials and court dates.
