A trucker gave her a lift and something happened during this time , , and knows what happened , and threatened not to come forward .
If nobody knows what she was wearing at the time , was the cameras in the store not working , or not checked ? .
What made her go into the kitchen area , and was the person known to her ? . Prior to her arriving at the truck stop did she not give anybody a lift? .
