Melissa Nieto, I see you share the last name of Marcus. Sorry for your loss. After watching a whole lot of crime investigation stories on late night cable, one of the elements that breaks a case is a relative getting very involved with the investigation. I am certainly no expert. But things can get missed, overlooked, forgotten, etc. If you can, set up a time to sit down with the detectives, and get it all laid out. I go trail running five or six days a week, quite often within a block of the location, and it crosses my mind as I pass close by.
