Ok, how do you only have a description of the "interior" of the vehicle? How are there no details about how this woman obtained the ride in the first place? Was she hitch-hiking? Was she at a party downtown? How did she come to get into a car with a guy if she didn't know his name, or anything more than a basic physical description? Also, what was the woman's state of mind and condition at the time? Was she under the influence of something? Was she engaged in..ahem..offering services, and this guy wanted to sample without paying? I mean, there are so many unanswered questions here that would..ya know..help the public, in order to help the police and the victim.
