why can't we get the coppers to spend a little more time watching cop shows on TV like some of the other experts posting here so that they can get this case solved quicker?

It doesn't make sense the police would not get the guy right away if he had been immediately identified to them as the shooter.

Possibly the key to a lot of this is Erich's mother. It appears she is the one who called the police to get him. Her son may have confessed to her and told her what really happened. I wonder how aware she was of Tammy Meyers' "mentor" relationship with her teenage son.
I don't believe that the family knew who he was, and did not tell the police. If she knew him (and clearly she did), you better believe that the son knew that as well, and told the father, way before the kid was arrested. I can certainly see the police not wanting that information out though, before they found him.

This is from one of the latest news articles:
"Meyers knew Nowsch, which is how she identified the road-rage suspect, Robert Meyers told reporters later Tuesday afternoon."

Another shirtless thug.

Something tells me this kid sat around the house, perched on the computer or playing video games. Gone are the days where kids were expected to mow the lawn, shovel snow, rake leaves, or help with housework. We're seeing a passel of soft kids who don't know what hard work is, with no parental supervision, and way too much time on their hands.

And I bet there's no father in that house, either.

Here's my question with all these threads sorting themselves out. Why on earth would they leave the 15-year-old daughter home alone when they KNEW who the guy was (and he knew where they lived) and were ostensibly in fear for their lives?

I don't know what the "correct response" is, but I have a pretty good BS detector when it comes to situations like this.

And when someone is "crying" but no water is visible, that's a good sign of acting.

I remember the "performance" the CEO of Cantor Fitzgerald put on after 9/11. I even said to someone this is guy is faking, he isn't crying, there are no tears. A week later he cut off all benefits/pay to the families . He was shamed through the media into reinstating them. So much for his angst over the dead employees.

As another poster said the husband's "performance" was somewhat theatrical and again, crying but no tears.

Have to wonder if "counseled" him is a euphemism for "bought drugs from" him.
Which begs the question of what really went down that night. The son and mother knew who they were going after, and the son initially chose to withhold this information from police. The question is "why?", and a drug deal gone awry is as good an explanation as any.

Reading his FB posts, it's clear gun-toting son is a self-confessed hothead to say the least, and although there was no road rage in this incident, he posted awhile earlier about his own rage when a pedestrian cut in front of a car he was riding in. He said that if his gf (driver) hadn't peeled out of there, he would have ****** up the pedestrian. In other posts he alludes to his anger problems, sometimes expressing regret, sometimes bragging.
NOT a person I'd choose to take with me unless I seriously planned to inflict some shock and damage.

It's entirely possible the Meyers called the kid and asked him to come to their house and could have fired first. The LVPD is surely checking cell records.

edit: I see other posters here beat me to it. Also it's possible the Mom was the dealer and the kid the customer.

Son must be a real rocket scientist. Of course he is part of the trend today that has to post all their business online.

If he had any smarts he would stay off FB for the time being.

If charges are brought against him, his "sharing" on FB and his previous incident will come back to bite him.

Sorry if this has already been brought up...I made it through the first 18 pages of the thread and didn't see it.

My husband and I believe that it will come out that the daughter and the guy who got arrested were involved with each other. The family has now said they knew him and had contact with him over the last few years. I believe the mother found out that the daughter was seeing this boy and went home to get the son (and his gun) and go defend her daughter's honor (or scare the creep away from her). How the gun fight evolved from there, I can't guess at yet. I do believe that the daughter will be the one to crack and spill all the sordid details...this is not the innocent shooting of a woman by a homicidal thug (imho).

This is from one of the latest news articles:

Las Vegas homicide Cpt. Chris Tomaino said in a press conference after the arrest that the police did not know until Thursday that the family knew Eric Nowsch. The video is on youtube. There was a lot of information he would not release right now but he did say that.

It will work itself out, either way it's not good for either party.

That's not the suspect, i.e. the kid they arrested.
It's the hothead son.

edit: I could be wrong about that, the son has fb photos that look very much like this and it's hard to tell from the angle.

Here's my Theory
Killer was ex boyfriend of Daughter. Mom And Daughter go out one night, and daughter Breaks down about losing her virginity and boyfriend breaking up with her. She caught him having sex with her best friend, and is now heart broken. Mom, "pissed" then comes home and tell her son, about what happened to his sister. Son in a fit of rage goes over to sisters ex boyfriends house to have a chat with him. Mom Goes with son just to make sure son doesn't flip out on his sister's ex boyfriend. Son see ex boyfriend in his car and cuts him off, causing a fender bender. Son pulls gun on ex boyfriend and tells him "he gonna pay for what he did to his sister's heart". Ex Boyfriends blows it all off until "Many Men" by Gangsta Rap artist 50cent comes on his Ipod. Ex boyfriend then remembers were his Drunken Step dad keeps his 9m. The ex boyfriend then goes home grabs the 9m, and heads over to the Meyers house for a little pay back. He Pulls up to front of the house turns the 9m sideways and starts Blasting Fools. One lucky shot Hits Tammy Meyers in the head and the rest is history
