What about the option that this is someone she met at the LAX airport, on her way home?
Started up a conversation at the gate, or on plane... Made plans to hook up later?
Perhaps he did not wish to be seen with her at his hotel, so met her in park?
PS If that is the case, the perp is already back in LA... or another city...
PPS Or another country?
Hope it wasn't a burner phone.
As far as the individual not picking her up at the airport, I don’t see that as sinister behavior. The airport is under construction right now, and last time I was there it was just a mess to drive through. Just easier to Lyft and it’s cheap. Perhaps that person said just take a Lyft to my town and we will go from there. And ML thought that place seems safe, false sense of security too being less than a block away from the police station.
Actually, this helps me see how you are looking at the situation and therefore how ML may have been looking at it. In my mind, risky equals reckless and she may not have seen it that way.
Yesterday's news (uploaded today) but it is a good little 3-minute summary.
MacKenzie Lueck: former police chief weighs-in
Welcome to Websleuths, @Logiccc and @RustyNail19 !
It's also a possibility that this all started out fine and she may have met him before.
There's the fact that many people have been drugged without their knowledge. Such as in a drink.
Doesn't have to be alcoholic even.
After that who knows where she is.
Or in what condition.
The list of substances to render someone highly sedated/in a semi-conscious state are truly endless.
I hope that's not the case and that whomever she met comes forward.
Because all indications are SLCPD are closing in.
Someone knows or saw something. Surveillance videos released today may jog their memories.
Oftentimes people don't remember these little details especially at that time of the early morning.
Waiting for the update,
I wonder if this started as a meeting with someone she knew and trusted. It escalated to something she resisted (rape) and then the person was caught between a rock and a hard place. If he let her go she would go to LE and he would be caught.
But, if he killed her and was careful in the coverup, he at least had the chance of not being charged.
Phone or phone records? Link?
There are some precautions I wish she would take. I have girlfriends who go on dates and let me know where they are going, who they are seeing, and when they plan to be home. I never judge the situation, it's just a here's where I'll be, if something goes wrong at least somebody knows. I wish she would have done this. Friends in her circles (myself included) would not judge who she was going out with. We just want to preserve her safety. I wish she would have told somebody who/what/where/when so at least one person knew. But I don't recall a time where she has ever taken that precaution so it wouldn't make sense for her to start now. If she did I'm sure that person would have come forward.
I think most college age kids tend to be careless at times. At that age many still feel they are invincible and that's why they take risks that older adults would never consider.
It does not mean it should be, but that's the way it is. Imo
Snipped and Bolded by me
I agree with this. I wonder how street smart Kenzie is in general?
There are people that do their thing but have very strict boundaries and safety measures in place. MOO
I’ve read that she was enrolled PT, don’t know how many credits though.
If it was a normal meeting ground and she was using a ride share service, chances are that would be in her past trips.
Me too- but she didn't go to any extensive effort to hide her alt-ego SM accounts so hoping for the best.
A bartender...? imo
Thanks! I just started. Have to work soon but I will update as time allows!
MLs close friends have all said that this isn't like her at all. Every indication seems to point to a smart girl with a decent amount of common sense and it's common sense not to meet someone you hardly know in a park at 3am unless you know that person very well and completely trust them.
This is why I feel confident that once this person is caught we will see they knew each other pretty well.
Think we will also find this person is either married or in a serious relationship with someone they live with and needed to meet her in the park so their wife or girlfriend wouldn't find out.
I don't think SHE went to meet this person for a booty call. Just coming from the funeral I'd think sex was the last thing on her mind. However if she needed someone to comfort her a old friend she could innocently cuddle may be worth the detour to North Salt Lake for.
The cuddling turned to him trying to have sex with her. She rejects his advances or threatens to tell his wife or girlfriend and then he does something bad to her.
That is seriously risky behavior.
Correct about always letting someone know where you're going to be @yellowmoose .
That's what they teach in safety classes and at foundations like Help Save The Next Girl. (In memory of Morgan Harrington.)
I have loyal friends who have all my passwords and personal info.
We all need to apply the buddy system at any age.
