    I’m sure they do too but until I saw this I assumed it was BBs car. Now I’m not so sure. I’m not sure what that means but I’d be interested to know who else has a similar car, if anyone, in the family. JMO

    Those gray or silver Altimas are a very common vehicle. I have a gray one, and I've come out of a store to find four identical cars in a row.

    Yep. I have a white one. That’s why I took notice. I think I would have an awful time telling mine from another similar one in a blurry black and white photo.

    The younger son (who she is seeking custody of) is DV’s son. Maybe she thinks the older son is safe with his auntie?

    Doesn’t DV’s brother live in the Houston/Sugarland area?

    I believe LE was on to the car not being stolen by the alleged abductors as they were able to show DV the surveillance of him being dropped off at the hospital in the silver vehicle. LE also saw the vehicle Saturday afternoon in Sugar Land. Before this, DV alleged he walked to hospital after nobody would assist him.

    The vehicle was easy to differentiate as it had no license plate -- only a temporary paper permit.

    When it was discovered in parking lot, nearby business owners said it had been parked in strip mall for a couple days. I believe it was located within 24-36 hours of LE broadcasting the vehicle information.

    MOO

    That does make a lot of sense. If she expected both of her older children to be with their father, she wouldn’t think they were missing. If she had a fight with DV and called off the engagement like she said, she might have thought he wasn’t at the airport because he was mad about the fight. It somewhat explains her response when he doesn’t pick her up at the airport.

    Thanks, I thought it was the opposite. But that also makes sense.

    I've seen the controversy on sm about the cars looking different. I think it's just the angle and reflections from the lights in front of the hospital. I just don't see police IDing the car based on a quick glance. Surely they know it's the same car.

    In some cases they can. Each state covers it differently. In my home state there are exceptions when there's been domestic violence, including against a child. In some states there's an assumption that the marital bond has been broken if one commits abuse against the other and therefore the injured party can testify.

    I checked and in Texas a spouse can voluntarily choose to testify against their partner. I think the important word is voluntarily. But even then under Rule 504 (4c) there's an exception when abuse occurs to a family member.

    https://www.txcourts.gov/media/1442...-updated-with-amendments-effective-112018.pdf

    So the upshot is that marriage doesn't automatically prevent one spouse from testifying against the other - voluntarily. Furthermore, the accused spouse cannot stop their partner from testifying.

    The other point in Texas law is that if a crime was committed before the two people were married then all bets are off.

    BB didn't identify her vehicle from that photo, though. Police showed her the hospital surveillance video. MOO

    When every adult fails the child, that's when the system steps in. You mean to tell me it's OK for the system to fail them, too?" said Juan Cortez, also with Parents Against Predators.

    Yeah, kinda interesting eh? The father may have said more, like how long the brother had been in Texas but I'm not in the mood to go back and listen to that interview again. :eek:
