    what evidence are you talking about? DNA was all over the van. Besides it doesn't leave a whole lot of evidence to strangle someone... JMO

    "Enraged" is a good word and I feel that feeling came to him more and more and for silly reasons as they continued on their trip. I think she knew about that part of him and as a result, her parents may have known at well. It fits the narrative of a "sudden" choking without thinking and then punishes her by leaving her out in the open and being able to leave her there for 3-4 weeks.

    Difficult to prove ones case when there are other things that could have happened. The question will be (unless there is direct physical evidence tying BL to this) how possible is it that someone else did this after BL left her, or while he was on a walk about.

    It is more possible than Big Foot attack, yes. That would be a clear example of not reasonable. But it comes down to what jury/judge finds as possible

    This man has inserted himself into this case and is making it about himself. He has yet to add any new or actually useful information at all. MOO.

    Maybe the attorney doesn't. But I am pretty sure the parents know where he went. I think they helped make it happen.

    I would think DNA is probably not going to be very helpful in this case since they lived together in the van and tent and you'd expect both of their DNA to be everywhere. Unless it's someplace like under her fingernails where it wouldn't get in the normal course of life.

    Me too. I always aim for accidental but I'm not shocked anymore when it isn't.

    Yes, I was agreeing with you! I guess I am very emotional and not expressing myself very well because I am so disgusted and disturbed about the fact that this cold blooded killer has not been brought in yet. Jmo

    Not surprised that strangulation was MOD. One month or so ago that she was killed, falls in with Merry Piglet ?? Glad to hear the pregnancy rumor is put to bed. Interesting enough, I just received a text from someone today. It said 'what is all this on the news about a missing girl and they are looking for the boyfriend'. It was hard to do the readers digest version of this tragedy.

    No, it comes down to whether the jury believes the defendant committed the crime beyond a reasonable doubt, not beyond a possible doubt. If you're interested in learning more about the reasonable doubt standard, this University of Chicago Law Review article is freely available and does a good job explaining its history and application.

    Manual strangulation involves compression of the neck by using either one or both hands or by exercising pressure with another part of the body such as the forearm or knee.
