What all that doesn't tell us is if she was a pre-determined target or a random encounter. It also doesn't tell us if he did for his own desires or if he was paid to do it.

Paid to do it? How would he have known that she was going to hop in and mistake his car for her Uber?

Maybe if she didn't she would have been forced in?

The poster I responded to suggested maybe she was dropped off and then murdered by someone else. Obviously she was not. What difference does it make if it was predetermined (which sounds far fetched to me, how would they know she called for an Uber?). He is charged with murder either way.

Her boyfriend would know.

Is that because you were just standing there with your husband not checking the license plate and not getting into the car, so they finally got out and said, "Hey, are you Posh66? I'm your Uber driver."
They get out of the car to put our luggage into it because we're at the airport. The only time we use Uber is when we travel to the States. Thus, I haven't used it often enough to I suppose notice the license plate showing up on the app. They ask my name because there are literally a couple dozen people at the airport also waiting for Ubers.

We are talking about a woman getting in to a car with a STRANGER and being attacked and KILLED! THERE IS NO COMPARISON!
Ok, let's everybody take a breath and calm down. As was already pointed out by some kind poster, I was pointing out that logic and facts should prevail in these emotional situations. It's not terribly dangerous to take an Uber, it's not terribly dangerous to travel to Mexico, the odds of you dying in a terrorist attack are minuscule. Meanwhile, everyday activities like driving are super dangerous but people brush it off like it's nothing. As I said, what happened to that poor young woman was truly the stuff of nightmares, but I think it's illogical to condemn Uber for it.

The God <3 sponge baths thing was joke, poking fun at people who grumpily insist that the old ways are the best ways.

You've been watching too much GD TV cop shows. No one paid this criminal loser to kill this poor lady.

You'd make a lousy investigator - so ready to dismiss possibilities.

Very interesting case, I wonder how much evidence does the police have and hope there's no cover up or evidence tampering.
There's a first time for everything. I don't think it's interesting at all. Seems pretty clear he probably did it.
