    • Has it occurred to you knuckleheads that maybe Cynthia left the book open at that page to leave a clue as to what happened to her -you know, to tell them what she wanted them to think? And maybe it was her placing the phonecall. Edit: lol they say something like that in the theory. Also, why are we assuming security cameras were commonplace 40 years ago?

  • what's with religious people being horrible and abusive parents? Every time I hear about them they're either super strict and condescending or downright abusive. If I had to guess, I'd say that cynthia wasn't kidnapped but instead ran away in order to escape her horrible parents, making up the story of a stalker inspired by the romance novel with the assistance of a friend to make it believable.

  • At 0:46 the captions could have commas to separate the list so that it is easier for deaf people to understand the way the video is going by changing it to "church prayer meetings, church swimming events, church camping trips, seasonal church parties, and church worship on sundays. In the video captions it would also be nice if we added caps so that we can emphasize words just like you would when speaking. Also in some parts of the video when there should be quotes there are not quotes for the captions which could be confusing to a deaf person reading it as they could be questioning where it is coming from. Also when expressing emotions in the video as there is a lot of emotions it would be nice if there was like exclamation marks and other tools. Overall, the spelling of things wasn't any issue and only a few grammar mistake fixes could make the view of a deaf person even better. Thanks.

  • I feel like the stalking could also add to the running away theory. Like with the phone calls and the spray paint it would be fair to say she was creeped out. If you're trying to disappear from a stalker you tell no one and leave to trace often times. That mixed with her religious upbringing could very well be the case

  • Surprised they attribute the book thing to either the stalker or a fluke. If Cynthia was the one reading it, she'd know exactly which chapter to leave open if she was trying to leave a clue in a hurry. The mental gymnastics of "but how did the kidnapper know what the book was about?" is kind of staggering.
