Did he say anything about Tim Miller (TE) searching today? Curious if he doing land or water searches?

I'd be surprised if any of the fellow students had anything to do with her disappearance. these kids have way too much to lose over killing a girl and dumping her body for a single night's stupidity.

only time will tell.

Tim Miller and ESearch arriving today.

IMO, the tension between the media and Captain was thick. Very much doubt this is stranger abduction. Mom's comments cemented that for me.

Or it put a spotlight on Lauren and triggered twisted fantasies in a sadistic perp's mind.

Young adult college kids>fine line between eluding police and left the area/state to return home for summer break (be back soon for questioning!).They've got their hands full with the media, the integrity of the investigation, the attorneys, the POIs' reputations, the amount of focus on t case due to effective use of social technology, and the demand for answers.

Police have said Lauren herself was not involved in any fight. I don't think that fight itself had anything to do with her going missing.

I honestly don't know what to think. I do not believe that college-age young men are less likely to commit crimes against young women; they are probably the most likely, if we had the stats. Even if the person is not one of the current POI's, he could well be another college student, as the population of that area seems to be almost completely college students and those awake and out at the hour might well be college students. Lots of young men have rage issues or a short fuse, and no one really knows to what degree until it is too late.

I do think the fight is a factor, at least for now. Lauren may not have been "involved" but she may have been the reason. No one would want to admit to that once she is missing, but I believe it was related.

This has my curiosity piqued.

The video gives us the direction.....I assume this to mean the direction they were travelling??

The activity that has taken place....Activity by Lauren & CR within the camera view? Activity throughout the night, ie. others passing thru video? Car activity in the video?

They have made it sound like all the alley cam caught was Lauren and CR walking thru the camera view to his place, like it was nothing big. This statement regarding "activity" makes me wonder.

Yes, and shame on the others who may know something (Mom never said---the college kids)---not a leap for me though.

I am wondering if one or more persons took and failed LD tests, or refused to take them and that is what she is referring to?

Where Lauren ended up...is what is so hard to guess, if indeed any of the POI's were involved.

If Lauren was present, and she was the subject of the conflict, then she was, in effect, involved, though she might not have exchanged blows with anyone. Another student or a stranger lurking in the shadows would have picked up on what the argument was about.

I am guessing that the reason for the fight was that friends of the boyfriend took offense on his behalf, considering that LS brought the guy to her apartment building at ~2:30 am and at least one witness told reporter CR was showing "inappropriate affection" toward LS. But other than that I am not sure what the fight itself could have to do with her missing. I think it is highly unlikely any of the boyfriend's friends involved in the fight would then try and harm her. Although I would not be surprised if they did inform the boyfriend of what took place.

So they know she has been harmed? Or they assume so??

I believe the fight took place inside the apartment building. Highly unlikely there were any strangers lurking in the shadows. Furthermore we then have her going to CR's apartment and spending some time there, at least one hour. Any stranger lurking would have no way of knowing she was going to leave CR's apartment building and go home alone (if that is what she did).

That is what I believe-that the friends informed the boyfriend right then. What happened next and what, if any, action he took is unknown. So in that way, the fight could be a part of the case, if indeed the boyfriend came looking for Lauren.

I think at this point this would be the most reasonable assumption to make.

Well, kidnapping someone would be harming them, in a way, so it is hard to tell what meaning this has. Or it could be a slip, speaking what one is thinking...

The likelihood of the boyfriend being informed increases if there were several of his friends who observed LC and CR together.

As horrible as the alternative might be, I have to say, I really hope the boyfriend is not involved...nothing worse for her parents, to have someone they trusted end up being the one who harmed her. Yet it happens, time and again.

Unless someone is back-packing in the wilderness or similarly cut off from all communication, how would two of these POI's NOT know about Lauren's disappearance? It would lead you to believe they are intentionally avoiding LE.

How many residents do you think live in the apartment building? How many of these "friends" were present? I'm not ready to exonerate anyone or ignore any possibility, certainly not on the information thus far provided.

No one really has an obligation to talk to police.

It's all in a word---did the 2 POIs "elude" and "evade" the police, or did the students return home to begin their summer vacation, etc.
