My thoughts:

this is going to be someone who knows Holly. I don't think the family knows him. probably someone she met at school. I don't think its some guy living in the woods like the Elizabeth Smart abduction. This guy was wearing camo, that means he went out and bought camo for this purpose. If you are living in the woods, you don't have money to buy camo, you wear whatever you can find. This wasn't some nut from the woods. It was a well thought out abduction.

Also, on the turkey hunting thoughts. I am from rural NC and turkey hunting is huge around here. I can fully understand that CB would have thought it was her boyfriend. I don't hunt, but most of my friend do. They get really excited about a big buck, or big bear, or turkey with a long beard! I mean really excited. They will email me pictures all the time. My dad was the same way. If you don't live in the country, you don't understand it. Actually I live in the country and don't understand it. lol. Lots of country folks love to hunt, both men and women. Its very common to show off your kill!

So, trust me, the story about CB thinking it was her boyfriend is completely plausible. Actually makes perfect sense! Turn it around.

If he knows the boyfriend hunts their land, why would he think it was someone else! Doesn't make sense for it to be a stranger abducting his sister. Makes more sense for it to be someone hunting turkeys.
 
I think the case is going to be blown wide open today. I am going to guess they have found:
A) a video surveillance of the same car following Holly in the school parking lot daily
B) another item of Holly's at 100 Eaton St.

I think a piece of Holly's being found behind a building, in the trash, near the woods or what ever at 100 Eaton St. would speak volumes. It would almost make too much sense to confirm what I had been thinking right when I heard of Eaton St. as evidence. He drives from her house to Eaton St. with her in the trunk, disposes of her belongings, continues driving before realizing her lunch box and a piece of duct tape are still in the car and he tosses them out the window en route to his destination.

Maybe this guy isn't so smart after all. Eaton St. is a dirt road which could be important. His tire tracks may still be on the pavement depending on whether it has rained there or not.
 
I'm guessing it's the first - they think the person was standing there at some point. Maybe they got a tip about a weird guy seen standing there a few weeks ago who knows. If the person was a smoker, gum chewer etc they've left evidence behind.

A significant piece of evidence to me means they found another piece of her belongings. It's probably safe to presume it's been there for the entire time which means it's relevance at this stage is tough to determine.

What's so frustrating to me for the family is that it really does appear they have an excellent idea of who did this. But hunches don't carry any legal weight and without evidence they're stuck.

I'm glad they aren't telling us what they find and I hope it doesn't leak. We dont really need to know specifically. We just need to know they're getting closer.

The debate on volunteer help? Well that will be in the post case analysis. If we have a good outcome it worked. If we find the leaks to the media/media leaks themselves because of the public nature hurt the case...it's up for debate.


Well about volunterrs searching....Cant that hurt the evidence chain????

We have had at least 3 terrible storms since the day she was abducted...:(

Perhaps this guy already owned a camo outfit. I know many guys who like to hunt and have at least one set. Not that expensive at Wal Mart.
 
Fox News Channel just had a little live spot with Alisyn Camerota and a reporter in TN. The reporter said that Holly's mother was "grateful and relieved" at the find... The film with the live spot showed dog handlers and seemed to be in another wooded area. SOME of the report may have been recycled from something that aired yesterday? Was a bit longer than the usual sount blip.

All the homeless pan handlers here have camo. They seem to be a big donation item to shelters, etc.

There goes that idea.

We're going to need lots of information about what's going on at 100 Eaton St. in the next day or two. Google Earth gives us a 1st person view of the place from 69. It looks like there is a factory there down a dirt road. There's a house in front of the factory a gated dirt road about 100 yards north of that. Yet another dirt road resides across the street and leads to some fields.

If there exists evidence at 100 Eaton St. I'm going to take a good guess that the location wasn't chosen at random.

Not if they don't touch it, just flag it and report it to the team leader or LE immediately... which is what they're taught to do in every search. LE's problem would be making sure any such evidence wasn't planted.
 
Lots of people have camo gear.

I'm in Texas, but at my kids' schools we sometimes have "camo day". Kids and teachers come with camo gear...some head to toe camo!

You can get it at garage sales, Goodwill, lots of homeless people wear it too. Everyone who has been in the National Guard or military has camo clothes, as well as hunters. LE families have camo too.

My husband was in the Air Force and will not give his gear to Goodwill or other thrift shops because he says that it could go to a bad guy. Looks like that's a possibility in this case.

I tend to believe he had the camo outfit. My neighbor isn't a hunter, he is in the military and he wears camo to work each day. So the guy may even have military background. He would still have knowledge of survival skills.
 
I still can't shake the T-shirt thing, makes me go: WTH?

i think that if a person wants to buy a shirt then thats their decision. the sellers will have to pay the appropriate taxes on the sales and as long they comply with all of the legalities then its their business.... it doesnt help us find holly worrying about why they are doing what they are doing, imo anyway...
 
Anybody else notice on Google Earth the dirt road running right beside/with Eaton street that continues on down into the woods just a bit???
 
Nurse- Do you remember what time they said? Have it on, but nothing so far

they didn't say... ((sorry LOL... I tried to listen for a while and couldn't take it any more... I need classical music in the morning LOL))
