    Student Found Near Train Tracks Update

    The original thread was closed so I thought I would post this here, an update from the Iowa State Daily.

    Raven Gileau did not use her cell phone the night she died

    Brennan said it was still unclear why Gileau ended up on the tracks that night; and while her injuries were consistent with being hit by a train, the tapes Ames police retrieved from Union Pacific do not show a collision.
    I wonder if they have ran the scenerio of her getting hit by a vehicle then ditched near the tracks.

    Or her running into the train as a means of suicide.

    Re: Student Found Near Train Tracks Update

    this really makes it sound like a car hit her and the person placed her body by the tracks

    My uncle is a engineer for BNSF and he has had vehicles drive into the side of his train, why couldn't someone walk into the side?

    Maybe she had just escaped from the Ames Hostel and saw her reflection of what happened to her eye and couldn't take it...

    WTF? Sensitivity obviously isn't your strong point.

    Have you watched Hostel? It was a reference to the movie. Wasn't trying to be insensitive, but since there didn't seem to be a logical reason I threw that out there.

    There's a time and a place. This, however, is neither.

    Weird. That article creates more questions than it answers.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    are you serious? theres a big difference between walking into a train and driving into it. driving you may not hear or see it, or your going to fast to stop. How can you just walk into the side? And if you had any motivation to hit the train, why would you wait before its partial past instead of getting in front of it.

    Because you got there too late? It isn't a completely impossible theory. You say you don't think it happened but it's not impossible.

    Hold on......maybe it is. If she walked into the side she would have gotten caught between cars and likely been dragged. This is weird, that's for sure.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    I guess this is a message board discussion so all crazy scenarios are the most likely. I mean look at all the crazy Lacina ones people came up with.
