What I think

There was a female student about 30 years ago who was walking to take a final and forgot her lucky pen and went back to her dorm room and never made it back for her test,(something like that) no one has seen her or heard from her since, no clues, no body. Maybe a professor? Worker there?
Serial killer, maybe not even, maybe she is in someones house, celler, whatever, being a sex slave. Sort of like the girl that was taken hitchhiking and was a sex slave for like 10 years she was kept in a box type sleeping quarters and was brain washed. Finally she "escaped: there is more to the story but I gave you that brief description.
His coat, well rumor has it that he left his coat and walked accross campus to another party or soemthing like that. We all know that people from the South (he was from New Mexico) that they think that 60 degrees is like freezing so I can not imagine that in Feb. he would leave his coat.
New Hampshire, a few students went up there either the next day or so for a little vacation or something.

My theory is, that since he looked foreign and maybe said something to the wrong Vermont redneck or a bully at college (just because it is Middlebury College doesn't mean you don't have the bullies, prepies) and they (he) hit him, maybe he fell and hit his head. Instead of calling for help, whoever was there panicked and took care of the situation at hand. Hense, the trip to NH to dispose of the body.
I can not imagine that the police has not even looked in NH and so fourth, I think looking for the body in the river was good, but nothing came up. They need to look elsewhere.
If that was my kid, I would be screaming my head off for them to check the trunk of the car or SUV to see any traces of him or blood. Not enough is being done I feel.
If he wanted to ditch, and he was close to his mother i think that he would at least call or something.

By the way, My spelling sucks.

My theory from the beginning is that someone hit him by accident and they were in a position that scared them *such as they were drinking and driving or had a large amount of drugs on them* so instead of getting help for him, they wanted to get rid him so they wouldn't get in trouble for whatever they were hiding. It happened quickly and intentionally and only one person was involved and they haven't told anyone.
Whatever the case, very sad and I think about his family and what they are going through everytime I see it on the news.
