Did her friend know that she was going to visit her , if so did the friend not become worried when she did not arrive ? .
Did she not phone the man for a lift to her friend , and did he know the friend as well ? .
Why did the boyfriend not take her , did he not become worried when no contact was made , did they have an argument ? .
If she was going to stay the night with her friend , she would not have gone back the same night , did she and her friend have an argument? .
Did they find the dog , or was the ” lost dog ” totally unrelated ? .
Who allows someone to walk on their own at that time of the morning , on their own ? .
Did anybody not notice anything untoward in the Chevron Store when they were buying items , were the cameras checked , was the dog with them at the time in the store ? .
Was it discovered what she had bought with her cards , before they were no longer used as stated , and where ? .
How far did her friend stay from either the store or motel , would she have needed a lift back to the motel , or get her boyfriend to fetch her ? .
Strange case indeed .
