Missing RAF gunner Corrie McKeague update

I opened up the newspaper today to see an update on missing RAF gunner Corrie McKeague. 

(note: If you're not aware of the case or need to be refreshed, check out the post I originally made here)

Basically investigators have just discovered that the weight of the lorry / trash car was more than originally estimated (previously thought to have been 11kg now known to be 100kg) indicating that Corrie McKeague could have indeed been picked up by the vehicle and taken to the landfill that his mother has been urging authorities to search. I believe that the route made by Corries phone correlates with the route the vehicle would have taken from the that spot he went missing. A search for his remains is currently in progress.

I know they are completely unrelated cases, but the analysis of the CCTV reminds me of the case of the missing blonde in Miami. One day she was in her hotel room, the next she had completely vanished. The CCTV didn't pick up any footage of her leaving the room, but she simply wasn't there. An investigator got obsessed with the case and watched the footage over and over again until he noticed a man struggling with a suitcase in the elevator and realised that the girl was in it.

If someone mysteriously disappears in an area that has a generous amount of surveillance, it's most likely that they were concealed in something- a vehicle or even a bag.

By the way, if you're interested in reading about "the case of the vanishing blonde" you can do so here <<

Also, misleading details can totally throw off an investigation.
It makes you think back to all of those unsolved cases and wonder if the details were true to the actual events.
