Guest blogger Bob is working on his next installment on this case, and hopes to have it ready for press later in the week.
In the meantime, the discussion of Brianna's car and what reportedly was found inside and outside reminded me of a potential clue that was not highlighted by me previously.
The young men who took the published photos of Brianna's car at the Dutchburn farm also evidently reported seeing something odd on the back of the vehicle. There on the trunk, on that cold morning amidst the wood from the collapsed wall of the farmhouse, was a lime wedge.
I remembered this being discussed on the now-defunct discussion board about the disappearance, but had initially forgotten about it since the information was not included in the media reports of the case. Bob confirmed that he believes the piece of fruit was there and recovered at the scene, and will address it specifically in his next post.
So, what would a lime wedge be doing outside at the scene of a missing woman's car at an abandoned building?
Despite the compact timeline, could it be evidence of a party that occurred at the location or somewhere else that night (and the fruit froze to the car)?
Or, does it simply support the theory that Brianna stopped unexpectedly at the farmhouse, was out of her car speaking with someone that she knew, placed a drink on the roof of her car, and the cup and lime wedge spilled off when the vehicle impacted the house?
