Eric. Yup (affirmative). Ill just keep my thoughts. (Unintelligible) uh, it, its out in the news, but its not really hard to, to, or its not something I dont want to tell you or Ill, Ill, Ill tell you, there was, there was a trash bag found in her car the night that it was actually (inaudible). I that trash bag was a receipt. And that receipt was, (inaudible), and that receipt was for, Im showing you here, Fusion Ultra Lounge. But this is back in May.

friend of yours it kind of makes sense as to why this would be in the garbage bag inside the car. TL: YM: Okay. Because hes tied in. With that being said, do you have any idea where this garbage bag that was in the car may have come from? Because if, if it, it, I would find it hard to believe that she would have Nathans receipt. TL: YM: Right. I would find that difficult to believe that she was at her parents house and Nathan threw it in her parents garbage. So TL: YM: TL: No. I dont think its going to be her parents garbage. She probably got it from garbage. She probably threw it in a garbage bag and then put it, or she was cleaning up. Because she was cleaning up my apartment all the time. YM: Okay. Im just curious why would she put a garbage bag in the car as opposed to just taking it to a dumpster? And she was coming from her parents house. So that would mean that she would have had to put the garbage back from you apartment in her car, drive to her parents house with the garbage bag in the car and then run out of gas as shes driving back up north. And I was just curious, do you, do you, if that any of this rings a bell to you. If you, you know was she normally the one that took your garbage out? I mean (inaudible). TL: YM: TL: Uh, we all did. Me, Cam, Nate. Uhm, she... Yeah (affirmative). She would clean up. I mean but I never actually saw her take garbage out. She could have. I mean to do, like to throw garbage out like to go, the dumpster
