    My thoughts exactly. LE should be keeping their eyes out for body jewelry or piercings at RAT's property.

    I was just in Westmoreland State park on Friday. It has a lot of cliffs and deep runoffs there but is also a very busy park this time of the year. It was also an hour drive away from Richmond and probably closer to 3 hours from Lovingston.

    Yes, Palmyra is about 15-20 minutes away from Fork Union in Fluvanna county Va. My grandmother used to live there when I was a kid and we lived for a time in Palmyra ourselves.

    It was brought up early on, when she first went missing, so back in the first thread. She was apparently getting some major league extensions for her senior picture.

    Makes me want to cry writing that, thinking she's not going get her senior year. Please let her be alive somewhere, please.

    I am really, really hoping that soil/vegetation/etc. samples found on the tires and undercarriage(not to mention other parts of the vehicles) of AM's dad's car... and RAT's various vehicles (Suburban/ATV/Camper/etc.) are being examined by LE/FBI.

    Soil and vegetation varies even within a given region/area... Though it would not seem like it to the layman (like myself.. :giggle: )

    Ratios of minerals/types of soil and the variation in plants .... As I have learned on WS... Can be informative on the locations vehicles (and their drivers) may have traveled...

    All JMO...

    I think they need to look somehwere close to where Morgana Dana Harringtons body was found. I still think there is a connection here and that maybe he an accomplice who is African American. Maybe the drug dealer?

    So, for Alexis, she had, at the very least, her car, car keys, iPhone,
    her flowered capris/leggins, dark Pink shirt, Brown boots, undergarments, her Monroe stud, other piercing jewelry, other jewelry and her gray and dark gray purse as well as it's content. So, there is a lot to be found.

    As far as the keys go, he probably tossed those either into a body of water or into the woods.

    You do know there is a 26 yr old sex offender with the last name of Breeden- that lives down the road from RAT...

    I did not mean a random stranger. I meant I wonder whether broke loser RAT knew she had money and went after her for that. Sorry if I wasn't clear...

    Was there any mentioning of how far of a range the surveillance cameras at the Liberty Gas Station could point to? Could the cameras see where Alexis was parked at the gas station. Could someone, even RAT or an accomplice have slipped into the back of her car since a lot of people in Nelson don't lock their car doors? A lot of young people where I live in Maryland, don't lock their doors either when they go into stores. My son saw a man climb into the back of a young guy's car while he was in the store.

    I don't think the name Breeden is of much relevance in this case. A couple locals posted a while back and said that Breeden is almost as common of a name as Jones, Murphy, Smith..in that area.

    The reason behind the "my colors came up" labeling is that the probationers are assigned a color. For example, blue. Then they are directed to call in via phone every evening to an automated service. This service then states "The color for Will County Illinois (or fill in your locale here) is ORANGE. If your color is ORANGE please follow the instructions given to you by your case manager." They then have a certain amount of time to take a "drop" (urine screen) at either the courthouse or certain centers setup for such things: In IL, they can go to an immediate care center that holds a contract with the State AND that is certified to take the drug testing results.

    The reason this matters?

    If he were to have missed a call-in, OR missed a test, OR missed an appointment, , OR have a diluted drug screen (which really can be from excessive water/coffee being consumed prior to testing, it is not always nefarious)..well in those instances, he would usually not be violated from probation.

    HOWEVER, given his involvement in this criminal investigation,, you can bet your bottom dollar that the would use any/every available resource to hold him...including any of the above-listed offenses.

    It is good that they got him on this violation, whatever it may be. Even a missed call-in is a violation, and ANY violation is cause for suspension of probation (it's just rare.)

    I just brought it up due to Margarita's mention of it- and someone in one of these VA cases used the alias of Larry Breeden...

    I doubt it. I see no reason a person would transport a body from a relatively rural area with numerous places to easily dispose of it to much more highly populated city where he could easily be noticed.

    With the Tuesday find of the car they were able to go to the health club and possibly the Clubhouse at the first set of apartments.

    LE was on his house by that 1st Saturday just a day or so after showing pics to two businesses (Bliss and the other store that sounded like a convenience store) of "people" seen, on "other cctv" images, with AM.
    The 2nd day, after the first search of his property, LE also searched a home on Country Lane.

    And if I am not mistaken, LE was conducting another search in C-ville at the same time as they searched the Country Lane home.

    They are onto something.

    Today, I noticed there are camping huts at a nearby popular Park. They are a little spooky, IMO. But, I figure one must reserve those "cabin,"

    The abductor has a workshop or a favorite place and it is probably on Rt 29, VA 151, VA 56 or I-64.

    It is very important to find out what facility he was housed at until 1996 and note the town or county where it is located. I get the distinct feeling that he had talks, while confined, with someone of like nature. I can see three scenarios taking place. One would be some sort of competition or even partnership of sorts. The other would be to study jail/prison mate's MO and to try it on for size.

    I am very curious as to the man who is also listed as the property owner of the ramshackle house in Lovingston and the two different men who filed assault charges against RAT.

    Did Alexis work in Charlottesville? I read on her account where she mentioned on July 31st about having to go to work on August 1st. On August 1st, she was complaining about the morning traffic and the rain in Charlottesville. Her car was also found in Charlottesville the Tuesday after she went missing. Someone knew her schedule, even a stalker, just by looking at her account. I guess whoever left her car at the Carmike Theater parking lot must have been there before. Most strangers do not go out their way to hide a car over 35 miles away from where a person was last seen. Not unless the stranger was under police radar, knew that he would be the first suspect, and thought he could still get away with committing crimes.

    Some things are just not adding up right!!

    I live relatively close by to the areas we are discussing. To even try to understand the huge amount of land we are thinking about, I tried to visualize my own land. We have many acres. I was pretty shocked when I thought about my own place. We live "way out" and if there was something put on our land, we may not know it for a long time. There could even be someone LIVING on our land, and we would not notice as it would be out of sight with woods, hills, ravines, etc.

    I was in Lynchburg today - the mall, restaurant, walmart (joy, joy) and did not see one poster, etc. Maybe I missed it, but nothing.

    My hubby is aware of this case from me telling him, but otherwise no one we work with has ever discussed it, or brought it up, even though it's on news.

    To summarize my round-about thinking... people with large tracts of land may have heard of this case, but probably aren't thinking they need to go check their land. This seems to be a real "needle in the haystack" thing.
