Thanks so much JB. The old emoticons aren't here anymore, or I'd send you a tins of cupcakes... At 54:43 into this podcast.... \\Thomas Brown: Seeds Of Doubt | Free Podcasts | Podomatic" I can sure understand your frustration JB. I skipped until I got what I was looking for - around the 54minute mark. 1 - the phone call was made to the LE dispatcher direct, not a 911 call. Mom says 2:15am is when she made the call. She left the house 2:15-2:20am after her calls (including one to KK's mom). 2. Deputy Pine Gregory responded 45 minutes after receiving notification. HOWEVER... he did not respond until 3:45-3:50am. That's where I jump in and ask what happened in that time interval. Did dispatch hold back the call to the deputy for 45minutes (and then he didn't respond for a further 45minutes). Was dispatch unable to raise the deputy? I believe there were no other dockets that night... (forget which link that was in). What the heck.... I'm pro LE as we all are in here, however to learn that this deputy is still on staff today, I just shake my head. Did this missing time period not ever get explained in the public arena? Next step... there's no sign of Thomas anywhere (it's not a big town) and so the searchers go home to regroup. Next thing we hear is that from 4:30-6am there are a flush of sightings of vehicles that could be Thomas's vehicle caught on cctv around town.; driver never identified Now why would that be. Did someone know what was happening and just waited 'until the coast was clear'. This is a town with secrets.
