I'd feel bad but...ehhhhhh....Cyndi is kinda better off far away from society.

Well enough endless debate over what is and is not statutory rape. Now let us discuss teen abductions.

It's hard to feel anything for someone who is actively trying to push people into committing suicide.

This is the part with studies of characters’ facial expressions. I ’spect there’s some avatar material there.

Also some great extended insight into some relatively minor characters -- I love the compare and contrast of how they all react to Cyndi's disappearance.

Aggie's uber pacifism, added to teenage hormones, would indicate a black-and-white morality... which would place her a little higher than the bottom of a suspect list.

Says less about Aggie and more about the even greater and more violent hatred everyone ELSE has toward Cyndi. SOMEONE had to go at the bottom of the list.

I'd have put Lisa at the bottom personally. No person stakes in Cyndi and no overpowering morals to drive her to interfere. We've all already seen that Aggie can be moved to hostility if she perceives wrong doing.

I figured the most likely reason Aggie was at the bottom of the list was that she volunteered so much information, which would suggest she has nothing to hide.

Of course, this is a fictional story. In real life the more you tell a cop, the more likely you are to move rather higher up the suspect list. That's why legal experts, former police officers and others tend to advise that you never provide the police with any information other than what's required by law (generally just your personal identification, if even that depending on which jurisdiction you're in), unless you have a lawyer with you.

True, but as we find out in subsequent strips Aggie has a reason to cooperate since she views law enforcement as helpful. The investigator may not know this, but I think he has been doing this long enough to tell when someone is cooperating for the sake of covering their own tracks. And given what they already know the people most likely to hold a grudge were former friends and associates which leaves out Aggie and her friends.
