Back in 1992 it really was a dirt field. There was a paved trail that goes north and south, to the east was the canal and to the west was about 50 feet of dirt leading up to the east wall of Woodstone. Over time that was converted into a park, you can actually drive between Woodstone and canal now. They put grass and made it nicer than it was. I really dont know when they converted it.
Yeah, I know about the paved trail. And I haven't seen it, but I've been told that the area was a dirt field. And I know how the area appears today because I posted a lovely google map of the area in this thread several pages back.
What's your comment re: an article reporting a "nightly" bike ride?
Usually- and I'm only speaking for myself- I'd prefer not to discuss a case with anyone who claims to have been involved, or claims to be a relative, or claims to have known the victim(s) somehow, because (no offense intended) I have to rely on what's been reported... what's been documented... and even then, I might be skeptical. After all, this is a message board where- indeed!- it's been revealed that in this very thread a poster has come on as several different people offering more information. (I hadn't paid attention, but Jon was onto it immediately.)
Anyway, despite all that, it would be interesting to read a detailed narrative, without distraction, of how the events unfolded from your perspective.
