Reviewing the Wenatchee World articles… http://www.wenatcheeworld.com/topics/cowell/ It seemed that the first couple of days LE were very focused on Pitcher Canyon, where her car was found. When the FBI arrived, they were focused on abduction; however, after the car was searched and swabbed there was a change. If LE were still looking at abduction, I don’t think that they would have referred to the FBI as still helping at the request of Chelan County Sheriff’s office. Found in her car, the clothes that she was wearing on the video. LE most likely thought that someone had taken her and removed her clothing. They may have been surprised to find that she was wearing clothing when they found her body.
