This is obviously a tentative identification that could
be highly biased by the television-news context in
which it was made. But think about this, it may be a
good thing for Van de Velde to be that person she saw.
If he was that white guy behind Jovin and he was the
killer, what he did was catching up with Jovin and
talked to her. Then he had to use his car to bring her
to 1.7 miles away at the intersection of Edgehill and
East Rock Road to kill her because she was found dying
there. But the whole thing doesn't make sense. If he
walked behind Jovin at the College Street, suppose he
was stalking her , how come his car would be nearby for
him to drive Jovin away? OK. It is a possibility that
he parked his car there deliberately so he could drive
her away. But this is a very unlikely one because he
wouldn't know Jovin would use the roundabout way, i.e.
going north on College Street, to go home even he knew
she was going home. Even his car "coincedently" was
there at College Street, so he could use it to drive
Jovin away, it could easily be seen as a set-up. If I
were Jovin, I would think, why Van de Velde would park
his car so far away that he had to walk there along
College Street to get it back? This just doesn't seem
right. If I were asked to get into his car, I would say
"No." in any circumstances. OK. Let say she DID climb
in a car with Van de Velde, why drive a half-mile past
his house and kill her on a corner? It also doesn't
make sense. So it may be a good thing instead for Van
de Velde to be proved that he WAS there behind Jovin.
Why so sure the noise was made by Jovin and the killer?
What if it was just an arguing couple who happened to
pass there moments before Jovin was sent there. Instead
of being killed there, she might be stabbed somewhere
else and the killer dumped her body there.
