    Have the authorities asked the suspect? How can this guy be given bond when there are people still missing? Have they questioned the only survivor?

    Yeah, it seems unlikely that one guy drove four people to his home or home area. It seems the missing would be near their homes or vehicles?

    If they do think this is a possibility, seems like they should be focusing the search in and around Apple Valley lake.

    Has anyone thought of checking the old ppg building? There are also all those storage units there. Leave no stone unturned.
