    If that’s the case, the feds are gonna be all up in his shit. That’s what you call a straw purchase.

    In the affidavit, why would Colin admit that he specifically bought the second gun for Katlin? Why not just say I bought two guns etc? Or was the gun somehow formally registered to Catlin? But how could it as she was not legally allowed to have one. Seems like that was a stupid statement on Colin's behalf.

    But he also bought the gun for her back in January, not like the day before the murder. That should distance his responsibility a little.

    He was probably shitting his pants scared and wanted to make sure the cops knew the murder weapon was the gun he gave to her and not really his gun. Saying he had two guns and she stole one might have been better, or might have looked even more weird..
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    Or he shouldn't have said a damn thing to anyone. When something happens involving the law you shut your mouth and get your lawyer. Doesn't matter if you're guilty or innocent or what. The world ain't fair.

    This entire saga is one long, convoluted chain of events where just about everyone did something ill advised.. Let's just wait and see how the rest of it plays out and do what we can to support the folks who lost a dear friend/daughter, sibling, etc..

    I agree with this approach. From personal experience, saying nothing to cops when you're involved in a situation is the best course of action.

    Is that what you were doing when you were speculating about soap opera-like twists and turns? Was that your way of "wait and see how it plays out" or your way of supporting the folks that lost someone dear to them? Are you bi-polar or do you just say whatever fleeting thought runs through your head without regard to what you may have said previously?

    Is there any confirmation anywhere that this women was not able to purchase a weapon? This thread is the only place I’ve seen that, but I admit I haven’t searched it out.

    Until I walked it back after getting called on it and agreed that we already know what we need to know..

    Allied Cycle Works says the pro 'is not expected to represent Allied at future races;' Specialized, Rapha, Enve, and The Meteor have terminated their contracts with him.

    Rapha: "In light of recent events we have mutually agreed to end our partnership with Colin Strickland with immediate effect.”

    Meteor Cafe: "as of today, the Meteor and Colin Strickland have parted ways, and he is no longer affiliated with our brand.

    That’s why she’s on the run. She flew to NYC apparently.

    Unclear why cops weren’t tailing her when they had to let her go on the expired warrant.

    Lone Star Fugitive Task Force sounds like a Net Flix series.

    Murder of rising cycling star

    I’ve been reading up a little on fugitive strategies and capture rates. Sounds like her chances might be ok if she doesn’t commit anymore crimes and keeps a very low profile. Moving to a big city like NY is probably a good move. Also looks like law enforcement resources are limited for all the fugitives out there.

    But in todays connected world it’s gotta hard to drop off the radar vs the 1980’s. Somehow she’s gotta establish new identification and grow out a new life from life. Not that I’m rooting for her!

    Why do these seemingly-socially aware big corps., who pump out advertising and publicity portraying an active, healthy, everyone smiling and living their best-life in the outdoors lifestyle brand (ride our bikes, drink our energy drink and you too can live a life like this...), only find out some star athlete is a gigantic douche after said athlete does something so douche-worthy it makes national headlines? Where's the background checks and due diligence?

    Seriously. Can't believe these companies aren't pumping their athletes full of sodium pentothal before they sign them. Maybe a little enhanced interrogation to see if there's any possibility they'd get involved in an ill-advised love triangle at some future date.

    What do you suggest? Have Columbo follow them around to see if they’re cheating on their pycho girlfriend?

    Big corps have figured out how to do background checks of social media, it's not rocket science. It's outsourced because it's such a commodity.

    Maybe these contracts are on the low end, and it's not worth it.
