Sylvester has shared some interesting insights and theories. It makes sense that one’s place of employment may conceivably play a role in a crime. Removal’s folks tend to be familiar with dump sites and dumpsters. But would a devoted mother leave her two-week infant in the care of someone else?
Shane’s daughter is from his first marriage. They are divorced, she and his daughter moved from Louisiana to Austin Texas and he says all of his family is together. His dad overcame cancer, which was a very real scare to the family but it seems, in particular to Shane. He gets emotional in his television impromptu interview when he mentions that his father is okay now.
Of most significance to me is he says the car seat is in the apartment – or was in the apartment. The still shot of Heidi dropping her son Silas off at school, where she is outside the car, does not show her baby in her arms, and if she also went to a book fair which Shane brings up several times (2-3 times) and that she spent $25 on books, wouldn’t she have taken her daughter with her, and if so, why wouldn’t the car seat not be in the car.
My theory is, at this early stage, is she left the baby at home with Shane when she dropped Silas off at school, and he did something to the baby then (since he’s very wishy washy about just when he actually left for work that morning). Then when she returned home, something happened to her.
He also goofs up several times saying “She (Heidi) has a beautiful kid” – referring to Silas, but doesn’t she have two beautiful kids? He also says “and a son that’s missing her mom” (he likely meant “his mom”, but he might be blending her with Margo the infant, with Silas, and wouldn’t Margo also be missing her mom?).
One last thing – Watts used the employment at Anadarko for his burial site, but also the idea of oil, tissue dissolving in oil, in disposal of the bodies. Could Shane Carey’s place of employment, working for a moving company, have been used either by using a moving truck or the whole concept of “moving” bodies play a part in the criminal forensics of this case.
