thank you! I’d heard of that before but totally forgot. I’ve gotta do that
Not that this makes this horrific incident any better by no means, but is it possible that TB (of course) and the roommate were aware of Samuel being deceased and in the plastic bin, but the unidentified man went to pick TB up from Wal-Mart because she’d told him about the fight. He drove her to the hotel in Jasper thinking he was just helping a ‘friend’ get away for a bit, but once he moved the bin into the room and noticed the smell, he called the tip line to report it...possibly meaning he really had no idea about what the other two had done?
Just thinking aloud...
Thank you for sharing this. I need to look into this further.
I'm curious about this:
In the video DO says they were in Pasadena/LaPorte area passing out flyers - why? Pasadena is a bit SE of Houston, nowhere near the Cy-Fair school district, quite a distance from Webster and a yella long way from TB's Mom's house. I know he was desperate but can't imagine why they'd go to Pasadena.
Ivory actually investigates rather than just reading notes someone else wrote for her to read. She was relentless when reporting on little Maleah Davis. Always very organized and factual.
<modsnip> If TB had any brains she wouldn't have brought the body to the hotel she was staying at.
That's exactly what's being reported as being in court documents
"They later interviewed _______, the man who allegedly booked the motel room where Balboa was found. ________, 27, told police Balboa called him on Monday and said "she needed help because she was involved in an altercation," the complaint states [...]"
"They then went to the Best Western, where he checked her in, the complaint states.
Around 6 a.m. Tuesday, _________ "removed the storage container from the bed of his pickup," the complaint states.
Surveillance footage shows him "drag the tote into room 106," the document further alleges. He then gets in his truck and drives away."
They met on Monday, but the container was in his truck until 6 a.m. the next morning? This doesn't make sense, unless...

That's exactly what I keep thinking. Fortunately she wasn't a smart one because who thinks to have someone help them move a two-week old dead body while they're in the middle of a missing child case???
They did a ton of driving. Hours worth. I saw 330a mentioned in an article. I think that's perhaps when they actually got to the motel.
He’s also the father of a murdered child.
We need to keep in mind Sam was in the bathtub for 2 days prior from what I understand. IMO
I’ve got to go back and find that video, trying to catch up.
I didn’t realize DO’s parents were in separate residences. How was DO working such long hours in construction if he was able to walk Samuel to school every day?
And why was SO not able to find out where any of these people lived?
Yeah and 6 am might be when he left.
After all... he was her knight in shining armor and probably wanted to visit for a bit. Thankful for the tipster. Just a theory
And the police wrote her off as a runaway, and didn't investigate until way too late. That has always lit a fire under TM when he is searching for the missing---he listens to the families.
I know the case #, I know her name etc. to search, but it's still not showing up on the searches, even clicking on today's additions. I found two earlier ones, and I see she has a court date later this month for last years assault charge/Impeding breath. Will try again tomorrow.

I know that's what the roommate said, but some posters were suggesting that he may be mistaken or not trustworthy (understandable). My point was, he was likely dead by 5/13, so even if the roommate was wrong/lying, he was likely not off by more than a couple of days.
I agree, he sounds more like an innocent bystander she pulled into her mess, and with his name on the room she and (what he had to figure) was the deceased child were in, he had to call it in and tell whatever he knew.
None of these people's stories are consistent. First we were told that TB helped him out because of his work schedule and he had no car. Now he took his son to school everyday. "We had a routine."
Timeline: What happened to Samuel Olson? | khou.com
I believe it was Monday, May 31 when TB called the man.
However, they drove to Webster to pick up the plastic bin, then drove to Jasper.
According to the link above, the man & TB are seen on surveillance getting out of the truck at the hotel around 3:30am, Tuesday, June 1.
June 1 is also the date the man called in the anonymous tip.
