To a point... because that garage closed at 1:00am on the night Hannah went missing. But that doesn't disallow a number of related possibilities, such as Hannah and the POI walking through that garage, and/or the POI's car being parked on a street adjacent to the garage. And then either a camera captured his license plate or a witness (as yet unreported) did so. That's really all it would take to get probable cause for a search warrant on the vehicle (and properties associated w/ the vehicle, i.e. the address on the vehicle registration.)
Yes!! This!! Thank you! You are much more eloquent and quick on the keyboard than I am. Also, I don't think they would necessarily need to find anything of Hannah's in the car to get the search warrant for the home. Like you said, a warrant could cover both the car and the address of the r/o. But since LE said they found something in the car to lead them to the apartment, it makes sense and I believe it. My point is, they could have just found something that tied the person to being at the mall that night. A parking ticket from the garage on the floor, maybe? An item of clothing or something that tied them to a business down there as a place of employment? It did not, necessarily, have to be something directly related to Hannah (ie: blood, hair, her phone, her clothing) JMO of course.
