When was the last time that he went fishing / hunting , before he went missing , did he normally go on his own ? .
If as a loner as stated , why was he staying with others at the time of his disappearance ? .
If he had the health issues as stated why was he allowed to posses a weapon of any form ? .
If he was into drugs , were the known ” drug – dens ” ever raided ? .
Was he expecting the call , as he could tell his friend that he would only be back in the morning ? .
Why would someone leave at that time of night , given that he did not have any form of transport , if it was someone that he knew well , they would surely know this and make arrangements for later in the morning ? .
A deal gone wrong ? .
Are his siblings older than him , and why are they not taking an interest , other than the sister ? .
