Can they not use cell phone pings to see who's phone hit each tower at the stadium and downtown during the times the video was taken? I'm assuming these two were not smart enough to turn their phones off. Then all they have to do is verify the person has a white F150/F250 and bam..... Coot busted.


not unless they used their phones to make a call around that


Posted: Jun 21, 2013 10:10 AM
 

time. Even then, who knows how many phones used those towers... Unless they have a suspect & a phone number to ping, I don't see how that could be of much help.

That was probably a lookout car. Too wierd that no other cars were on the road. Just 2 cars back to back. Too much to be a coincidence. Guys in the car weren't concerned about that car (SUV) when exited their car, so must have know them.

Re: Look carefully at the color photo...

I think that is just the yellow street lights reflecting off the white paint at just the right time to make the door look beige. The other photo of the front of it doesn't appear to show a difference in color from body to door.

Good eye though as that would be a huge thing that would stand out.

Cell phone records will hang 'em

Posted: Jun 20, 2013 6:59 PM
 

Looks like the driver was talking on his cell and hung up as he approached the truck. All the police have to do is to correlate phones that terminated calls at that time and then left tower range shortly afterward. Then, see which ones own a white truck (or have a daddy who owns a white truck). I have a feeling that the police have already ID'd the person(s) and released the video to get them to do something stupid and implicate themselves...

Makes sense to me... Course, I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night too!

So now that we know they traveled down College Avenue...doesn't it make sense to see if any of the businesses have better cameras?

I would assume the banks and Winkopp have great cameras. Maybe even one good enough to make out a plate or some more distinct features? The slight turn in college avenue around Pita Pit/TTTs should show a plate.

The 3 point turn made me think they didn't know their way around campus and wanted to leave the way they came. However, on their way in, they traveled down college av. On their way out they stayed on 93.

have just gone straight and been out of there. Also, when they rounded Subway like they were heading down by the soccer field. They must have had to turn around and come to the stadium from above the hill due to the construction on the road by the hill. Maybe they turned around in Hardee's or some business, or perhaps they turned around at the memorial across from the stadium and I know there is a webcam on that spot.

Re: Other Cameras

They clearly don't know their way around campus if they did a three point turn at the bottom of the hill. They could have just continued on Williamson Rd and onto Perimeter and gotten back to 93 about as easily as they way they came in.

I'm no CSI but if they came down College Ave and took a right onto 93 but ended up coming through the center of campus and down Fort Hill St they must not have known there would be construction blocking off half the road. Kind of a strange route to take if you ask me.

If you go to the Clemson homepage there is a link to about 12-15 webcams shattered all over campus. Does anyone know if these have archiving capabilities?
Regrading the pictures. If you take a look at the color picture of the truck as it is leaving you can see a giant decal in the middle, as has been stated above, but there also seems to be two decals, one on either side of the larger middle white one. These side decals seem to be matching and are mirror images of each other. I have seen decals like this before. They are usually accent pieces that frame the decal in the middle. There also appears to be another decal in the middle of the front windshield. There are also aftermarket lights illuminating the license plate. Seems like that narrows it down a bunch.
I live in Athens and will be on the lookout ;)

If you look at inverted photo you can see that there is no light reflection on door, but there is on bottom of bed panel, This means the door is not painted with the same paint as rest of truck but a dull non reflective paint like primer. And there is a tool box in bed behind cab.
