      I believe the realizations were made using common sense. I'm not sure what you're so angry about, the fact that people understand investigations take time? Where is your certification to post internet comments? Someone should retract that.

    Remember, this is a MAJOR criminal investigation - homicide! They are building a case and there is absolutely NO room for error whatsoever, to form an airtight case. There is a reason they do things the way they do, when they do it. I think they are doing a great job so far and anyone criticizing them are doing so because they are impatient and nosey for details. Patience wins for the public, precision will win the case. It is what it is.

      Contrary to popular belief and television shows, criminal investigations take time. The police release information once they feel it will help rather than hinder their investigation. If they are releasing this information now, it is not going to hurt their case to do so and might even help if it means people will come forward with new details. There's obviously a reason it wasn't released prior to now. I hope someone recognizes these people so the police can speak to them.
