      I hope the investigator seriously look into the IP addresses and whereabouts of some of these commentators, because I am betting that the killer or killers find themselves on the blogs as well. This appears to be a bold statement to specific persons.

  9. Correction says:

    His name is Walid Kashour (not your spelling).

    On his Facebook page he changed his profile pic the day before he was found and wore the same white shirt.

    If you look in his sunglasses you can see a reflection of where he was when the pic was taken.
