As of 3:30pm Friday the pace of the police investigation into the case of missing 8- year-old Robert Manwill has hit high gear with the mother’s apartment and now the county landfill declared crime scenes.
The Daily Paper is doing a great job covering the story and offers up a TIMELINE of events.
At the Oak Park Apartment complex near Cherry Lane and Shoshone, a U-Haul van is backed up to the apartment…officers will not say if it has been rented by police, but it appears it has. Last night coppers searched the apartment and also towed away the family vehicle.
Meanwhile, a portion of the landfill has been cordoned off by the Ada County Sheriff’s Department. For the first time, coppers are saying the boy probably met with injuries or worse–leading to speculation they found blood somewhere.
The GUARDIAN is getting both “warm fuzzy” reports of the community coming together to search for the boy and complaints of intrusive police questioning and repeated searches of private property. Citizens tell us they are afraid to refuse a search for fear of becoming a suspect.
