One reason that comes to mind for not using the ground penetrating radar 15 years ago is simply cost. The $$$ per hour for operating the radar in the field is just the start. In addition to that, the engineering $$$ can rack up impressively. I can see costs pushing to $10K pretty easily. A second possibility is that the investigators at the time simply did not know of the technology.

When Placer County sheriff’s detectives served a warrant on Garcia’s car, they found Wilson’s hair and spots of her blood in the vehicle.


We had a local murder case. Single older woman disappears. A young man is discovered with her car maybe 50 miles away. There are traces of blood in the trunk. There is blood at her home. But no body. The young man, maybe 17 can’t be charged—no has claimed the car stolen, and there is no proof that she is in fact, dead. They hold him for a while on some juvenile charges but then have to let him go.

Maybe six months later her body is found in a ditch along a highway about five miles from her house. Once the body is found the young man was charged and convicted of the murder. He had done yard work for her and I think killed her when she wouldn’t lend him her car.

“He had done yard work for her and I think killed her when she wouldn’t lend him her car.”

Well, that’ll show her, huh?

This one, for example. Your crystal ball needs a tune-up.

You might want to read (or watch the movie) Murder in Coweta County. The prosecutor didn’t even have that much to go on. Just some unidentified brain tissue and some bone fragments. And the testimony of a couple of poor Black farmhands against the rich white landowner.

This case was on the ID channel, complete with surveillance video from the casino. I am glad they found her body.

I saw it on ID too.....wasn’t it See No Evil? I think it was. I watch that channel all the time.....

"...why even ask?..."

It's a totally legit question these daze. But totally rhetorical. Biden and Pelousy need to be completely tarred and burned.

““after a night of gambling.”

Something is not right, how many single 27 year old girls spend a night gambling?”

I think she was out having fun. Whatever, I don’t think she deserved to die at the hands of this monster, do you?

Everyone knew the woman was dead and they knew the kid had killed her. But there wasn’t enough blood found to prove she was dead. (A friend bought her house and he and his wife had to clean up the blood stains).

While the kid was in custody, they tried to get him to confess to the killing to a cellmate, but he wouldn’t. So they pretty much had to wait until the body turned up before they could charge him with anything.

Is he a Democrat?

Is he an illegal?

“do you?”

Of course not. Don’t be a tool, there seem to be several out today.

Yes, it was a See No Evil episode. I really like that series but they have not made enough of them. All I see are repeats.

Aaah, thanks Parley.......while I’m at it remember the one where this girl went out with friends and a latin male was walking her to her car in a parking garage....they interviewed him over and over knowing he was responsible but couldn’t prove it. They recently found her body too. I’ll try and find the episode and I think they charged him.
