Ben Fawley: The Investigation Takes a Twist
The investigation into the death of Taylor Behl again resurfaced in the public eye when a request came for the public's help. There are pictures of two ponds taken by Ben Fawley that the task force is trying to identify.
This public request for information seems like a square peg trying to fit in a round a hole. In a quick review of the facts Ben Fawley has a missing time frame of between 9:30 pm on September fifth to 6:30 pm on September sixth. We know in that time frame he met with Taylor Behl in Richmond and her body was later disposed of in Mathews Virginia.
If there was a pond either in Mathews or on the way to Mathews that fit the description of the ponds we have no doubts that the police would easily figure the location of the ponds. We would also suspect that other witnesses in the case would fully cooperate in helping the police locate these ponds. And it is interesting that Ben Fawley himself could have revealed the location. If he is truly innocent being forth coming with all the facts would be to his best interest.
The investigation is under wraps and there is little information coming out, and we can only speculate on the interest of the ponds.
Several possibilities come to mind.
1. The ponds are being thought to be used for the disposal of evidence. Such as the camera and tripod, and perhaps personal belongings of Taylor Behl. This may be a possibility, but I do not think that Ben Fawley would throw his camera in a pond, if anything he would have had plans to recover the camera and its film or digital media when things have cooled off.
2. Forensic evidence was found either in the car or where Taylor Behl was found that would indicate that they were at a pond.
3. And perhaps the most perturbing thought, is that the search for a pond may be in regards to something else entirely. Perhaps another crime, one that may also being associated with Ben Fawley's pictures.
