    ?
    search random people's houses?
    and how do you think they would discover who these random SD's are?
    and how do you think they would get a warrant to search random people's houses?

    I used to know a woman who was a “sugar baby” and a high end escort and she would always get dolled up to meet her clients. Based on the description of her casual comfy looking clothes and coming directly from a flight, I’m not sure she went to meet someone of that nature. It seems it was someone she knew and was comfortable with. JMO though.

    I don't see how that choice of words is 'dramatic'.
    Regardless of whether she hitchhiked, 'hired an Uber', or whatever....she still rode with a stranger, in a strange car at 2:30 AM; and she wasn't going home.
    Maybe the facts are unsettling to you..... But they are the facts.

    Don't think it's her. I stumbled on it yesterday AM, and couldn't find anything to believe it was.
    Maybe they didn't have reason to until now.
    That's true about pre-tipping, but I've never had one IME, and I believe it's a very small percentage. You have to rate the driver before you take another ride (not that you have to do so right away...you can just get out and go about your business, so it's not like she would have had to do this).
    Possibly. You'd think they would if there was premeditation, though not all criminals are smart, and some think they can't be caught regardless of technology.
    This is what I'm suspecting. It seems to lend credence towards theories that the suspect lives north of the meeting point, and the park was a meeting point possibly chosen based on convenience.

    well we know family (mom?) was texted upon arrival at airport - so the other texts very likely will be to the meet up person IMO. I think we will see an arrest soon

    They border each other. Salt Lake County has a number of different cities within its boundaries, with Salt Lake City being the center. Davis County is the next County to the north, and North Salt Lake is the first city. About a 10 - 15 minute drive from downtown SLC to NSL. SLCPD was probably who was notified by parents as at that time, Hatch Park was unknown as her Lyft destination.

    I was hopeful and then read this tweet...not sure. That person is cooperating with the investigation.

    I just can’t keep up with this world! It seems to me this “lifestyle” involves a whole lot of semantics- very fine lines drawn in very fine sand on a windy day. IMHO if a lifestyle involves this much explanation/ rationalization/ differentiation... perhaps it isn’t worth it. But that’s just me.

    Helpful article!

    Another thing to remember is that we weren't all the same 23 year olds. I was pretty reckless in my early 20's, and I definitely had that "invincible" and "nothing bad will happen" mentality. Also, she's 23 and still not out of undergrad, she may not be as mature as some of her peers. We also live in a culture that makes casual hook ups far easier to obtain, and far more socially acceptable than they were years ago. To me, she sounds like a pretty normal college student. I look at things like Tindr and Insta with a wary eye, but that is largely due to my age. Everything is just so different now that I keep having to remind myself that just because *I* wouldn't meet up with a casual acquaintance/hook up at 3am, that doesn't mean it's necessarily abnormal or a sign of some personal turmoil or something.

    I never understand what they mean when they say that someone is "cooperating". Someone could cooperate with an investigation and still be guilty of a crime IMO.

    This is the 4th reason I turn my piece of junk phone off - to get it to charge more quickly. I could see myself in a situation where I trusted the person I was meeting doing this so that I would have a fully powered phone later if I needed to take a Lyft back. I would rather have a fully charged phone for later if I may be traveling with a stranger.

    Are there any other confirmations of this in the media? If this is true, that's a major breakthrough.

    I've always understood it to mean that the person is willing to talk to the police and are answering questions. Whether or not they are answering honestly, who knows?

    I'm more worried that it was someone else who turned it off.

    I do find this update very interesting and random. I hope there's a lot more to it.

    Last known person texting with missing Utah student Mackenzie Lueck is cooperating with investigation: police
    snipped
    The University of Utah student who disappeared after ordering a Lyft and being dropped off at a local park last week was texting someone before she went missing, police in Salt Lake City told Fox News exclusively, saying they have surveillance video and a digital trail to prove it.

    Appearing on “Shepard Smith Reporting” on Wednesday, Salt Lake City Assistant Police Chief Tim Doubt told Smith investigators have spoken with the last known person to be communicating with 23-year-old Mackenzie Lueck before she disappeared and that the person was cooperating with their investigation.

    I will only make one comment on the large suitcase - as a college student perhaps that is the ONLY size she owns as a roller bag? She may use it whether she needs the space or not IMO.

    DenaliSpirit said
    I think this is the most logical explanation. Spot on IMO.

    I am going to go ahead and say this is totally me. I only own one size suitcase and it happens to be very large. Even though i don't need the space, i do manage to fill most of the time :D

    You are correct.
    Live tracking uses GPS and it requires location to be turned on and it also requires a phone to be powered on. Live tracking follows the handset, not the cell tower. Historical tracking, on the other hand, uses cell towers, and a record is kept. However, some activity has to occur to have a record. A call or text has to be sent/received or an app on the phone has to be used or working in the background on the phone.
