The story about them questioning someone at Casey's is probably true. I have just heard that they have 3 suspects they are looking at. This is just hear say for now so please don't get growly with me on this. I'm just telling you what I hear. The reason for the Casey's story probably being true is because I heard that Scott Higle is a suspect and his mom Theresa Higle works there. I have also heard that Logan Eck and Lauren Hill are the other two suspects in this case. Again I'm just telling you what I hear and don't want to make anyone mad.

Thanks for the info.....very interesting.

Logan Eck huh?? He had better start praying.

I hope the sorry SOB that did this gets the maximum sentence. I want to see justice in this community for once. Its time to set an example..

I want to make a statement in regards to the people you listed as "suspects".

I don't know Scott or Theresa Higle nor have I heard anyting regarding them as far as any involment in Diane's death.

Lauren Hill: I'm not going to speculate if he is or is not a suspect until an authority sheds light on what they have found. IF he is a suspect that doesn't mean he was involved OR had any involvement...it just means they are having to further investigate and rule out any possibilities.[like it would be handled with any suspect]

I question what makes those two suspects though. Were they seen near the crime scene? Did someone just randomly report them because they "thought" something needed to be investigated? I mean, all the public really knows is what is being reported in the paper or in the news [to me those are the facts and should be the only thing people are basing things from...not what is floating around town ---- which leads me to the next thing].

Someone in the public attached Logan Ecks name to this case buy why?!!? Here are some facts: Logan wasn't even in town. He can't be in two places at one time so why would someone spread a rumor that he could be the person to hit Diane!?! I was really stumped by this but instead of ASSUMING something; I asked.[it's better to find out the truth than tarnish a kids reputation]. Apparently on the way home (back to Beloit) he collided with a deer.

Before a person said publicly that Logan was associated with the accident involving Diane they should've went to the police department and discussed it privately with the authorities (or even anonymously). If you have a police report stating deer / vehicle accident than I would be pretty confident in saying (or assuming) he was NOT involved and shouldn't be linked to Diane's case. I think if it would've been handled appropriately by the person with the wild imagination, Logan's name never would've been attached or mentioned as a suspect!

I know Diane's family is heartbroken and seeking answers but speculating publicly about anyone isn't being "responsible". Report facts and pertinent information to the authorities don't talk about it publicly and spread rumors.

You sure seem to know a lot. It seems to me everytime someone post something you don't like you sure know all the facts. I think that the person above was just stating what they heard. I personally don't know any of them but I see the salina journal tonight is reporting they have a vehicle and it has evidence linking it. I know for a fact that they S&S Drug has a camera in the back and that is how they knew what kind of vehicle to look for because they took the tape from that night and saw what vehicle went through the alley. I heard from Diane's brother and they took Lauren Hills vehicle to Topeka for evidence.
I think people have rights to their opinions but I sure get tired of bitchy people complaining about what people post when no one really cares. I just want to see who ever did this pay. They should be put away for life.

Michelle - I don't think I know anymore than the next person but I was stating what I "heard" too. I'm glad they have evidence linking a vehicle to it and knowing there is a camera in back of S&S that recorded the vehicle going through the alley is great! It would be as good as an eyewitness, right?

I totally agree, everyone has a right to their opinions and they are a good insight to think about. I never thought talking on here and communicating with people about topics would open my eyes to the way other people view it. I think it's a good thing and I'll try not to be bitchy or rude about anything.

I hope they solve this and the person responsible is caught too.

(* By the way, how confused will people get with two people with the same name posting!:)*)

Here is an actual question I was wondering about. If a vehicle is linked to a crime how can they prove who was driving? Of course, you would think if it's your vehicle you would be the driver but what if a person said "I wasn't driving it"?

As Lorens (not Lauren) mother, I can tell you that there are about 3 fairly accurate facts in the comments above. Rumor and speculation are rampant and produce little that is useful or worthwhile. Since we can't talk about what we do know, I can't help you weed through the rumors but those who are repeating the current rumors are not promoting justice.
Yes, anyone with facts should tell authorities.
Yes, the guilty party should be held responsible.
Yes, this was a horrid thing that happened.
and, yes, we want the truth, not speculation. Thanks, Michelle, for pointing that out.

Please, try to keep in mind that all of your so called suspects have families too and all are innocent until proven guilty, unless of course, you want everyone convicted.

A concerned mother.

You're welcome.(I think I'm the one you're talking to...although the other Michelle that replied to my original post gave facts about S&S and the information in the Salina Journal.)

At any rate, I hope the rumors subside and they are able to focus on the facts so the case can be solved.

Well, I just hope they figure out who did this and why. It is hard to believe that no matter where you go this is all anyone is talking about. We were at Osborne at the fair and the rumers were running rampet over there. I just hope the truth comes out so all these stories will stop. You couldn't believe some of the things I heard over there but it comes back to the same people that are so called suspects in all the rumers. This is just getting out of hand. The truth needs to be figured out and fast.

John Doe could you elaberate on what you mean about how the case is being handeled? Can you also suggest how you would handle this case since you think it is not being handle correctly? What makes you think you have any idea how this case is being handled.

Some people think they know so much about Law Enforcement however your truck stop Law Enforcement books are not always correct. So John Doe if you are so smart and you know so much about how to handle this case why dont you pass the information on to the local Police Department

If you are so concerned about making anyone mad, then you shouldn't have expressed what you have heard..well you have made me furious..you don't know my son at all and you are passing judgement that he had something to do with this? You are crazy!! He is an innocent teenage boy who had absolutely nothing to do with this..shame on you!! Keep your mouth shut and quit gossiping If you want to visit, come on over or give me a call....

Since most of the town has my son convicted, I have to agree with Logans mom. If you KNOW something, talk to the police. If you know nothing, quit speculating.

There are a bunch of names being thrown around and the police are convinced Lorens pickup is THE one they are looking for. I know he;s telling the truth and anyone who really knows him knows he's not like that.

I do know what Dianes family is going through and I don't wish it on anyone. 15 years ago we went through it too, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. Until you've lost a child you can't begin to understand the pain.

Loren has cooperated from the beginning and will continue to. He honestly doesn't know anything about it. He tried to get them to give him a polygraph and they won't do it. We hope to set up a private one if they wont give one, not that it seems to count for much. He's talked to them voluntarily a number of times. He's not hiding or anything. I'm sticking by him and I hope all the other mothers stick by their kids too.
