Thinking out loud... still with more questions than answers: AW disappeared on 10/22. It rained hard during the first half of the day on 10/23. The car was found on the evening of 10/28. The doors were locked. The seats were wet. The car was "in a secluded area and looked like someone was trying to hide it." Although neither the family nor LE have commented on whether the windows were up or down, why would somebody lock a car yet leave the windows down? I personally don't think the windows were down, but that's jmo. * Could the condition of the seats on 10/28 tell us something about when the car was left in south Dallas? And just curious, but I wonder which seat(s) were wet? Would the seats have STILL been wet on 10/28 if the reason they were wet was the heavy rain that occurred a full 5 days earlier on 10/23 (according to NWS data, DFW got .91 in of rain that day, mostly during the first half of the day), - or would the seats have dried by then? The Macan's seats are either all leather, or leather on the sides with synthetic suede in the middle. Both materials tend to shed water. A seat's cushion (the spoungy interior) however, would readily absorb water. But it might take a lot of water.. If the seats were wet on 10/28 for some reason OTHER than the heavy rain that fell on 10/23, what more-recent event could have happened to cause the seats to be wet - and how recent do you think that event would have had to have been (again, so that the seats didn't dry). Washing? A day or two? Re: washing. Why would somebody who didn't own the car and who wasn't planning to keep or sell the car, care about dirty seats or stains? I don't think criminals who are abandoning a car (if that's what happened) would care about stains unless they thought that later analysis of those stains might lead LE to 1.) know that a crime had been committed, and 2.) identify them. So, I guess that's a decent argument that it was perhaps a recent seat washing that caused the seats to be wet.. But idk... for some reason I'm still leaning toward the heavy rain on the 23rd being the reason the seats were wet (even though it happened 5 days earlier, and even though I can't explain how the seats were directly exposed to the rain). Call it a hunch. And if the heavy rain which fell during the first half of 10/23 WAS the reason the seats were wet, this would mean that the car could not have been dropped off any earlier than the second half of 10/23. And if THAT is the case, it possibly narrows the window during which we don't know anything about the car's location: where was the car between when it was last seen at the RT at 6 am on 10/22 and when it was dropped off in south Dallas sometime the following afternoon/evening of 10/23 (speculation). This might similarly narrow down the CCTV window on any probable or suspected routes into and within south Dallas Jmo Eta - * does anybody know if the doors of a Macan will automatically lock if a person with the key fob in their pocket walks away from the vehicle (and, would this same action have any affect on the windows)?
