Then it spread around the internet like a wildfire and those two names became the suspects. That along with reports of bombs being found on Brown the day Tripathi went missing, I was convinced and shocked when NBC released the names of the real suspects at around 7 am.
I was curious where the name Mulugetta came from.
I need to go back and read this thread from that night.
I remember it went from being the missing kid to possible turk, russian or chechnyan military.
Also, I think the missing kid rumor started from that girl who went to high school with him and thought it looked like him in the pictures.
