I've really been enthralled by this thread.

Personally, I've submitted this for story consideration to my local CBS affiliate in hopes of finding answers, I figure who better than a reporter to sniff out the facts. I know it's unlikely to be considered but it's something that (as far as I know) hasn't been tried. Even if they don't go for it it might still serve to stir up interest which is always good in cold cases like this.
