I'm not against the idea of him being guilty, I just don't see how it's possible. If he was a serial killer who was responsible for the other 2 deaths/disappearances or even if this was unrelated, this was a calculated attack. The guy who abducted her knew what he was going to do when he walked in the store. So why on Earth would he stand behind the counter and wait around the store if he was there to do harm to Debra, exposing himself to potential witnesses? I think the theory of her going out to smoke and getting abducted seems more likely, since they found her apron neatly folded in the store. If that's the case then Megadeth is innocent.

I am convinced that Megadeth is the killer and that he had to pose as the clerk to conceal a crime (abduction/murder) in progress. But I guess we'll never know.

Everytime I see a guy with a megadeth shirt it reminds me of this case, talk about bad publicity

So the guy with the glasses in the segment (her friend) was the alleged kidnapper?

I wonder what the band thinks of this case, assuming they even know about it.

I don't think it was ever brought up in the segment that he was a suspect, but I always wondered if LE ever looked into him as a person of interest.

For those that don't know, this case was updated on a recent airing of Lifetime. The case of the 29 year old store clerk who had a two year old daughter was solved and it was determined that a man and his half-brother killed her and they had no connection to the Deborah Poe disappearance. They continued to say that authorities believe the main suspect in this case to be a "friend" of Deborah (don't know if it was the same friend who came by to visit her twice or not) and that the Megadeth guy was just a customer in the store. Her body has not been found.

"Just a customer", eh? I'm not buying it.

That's exactly what the UM update said. Obviously he could have been more than just a customer, I personally think he was taking advantage of an empty store attempting to rob it, but the bottom line is the police do not consider this man a suspect in her disappearance. The main suspect now is one of Poe's friends.

+1

To those that think the "Megadeth" guy was her abductor and/or killer:

He was probably the first person that walked in the store after she was abducted and, after a few minutes, probably realized he was the only person in there and decided to try to steal some money from the register when another customer (the girl in the segment) came in and walked up to the register.

Was he attempting to steal? Yes, I think so. But did he abduct and/or murder Deborah Poe? I highly doubt it. Who would be stupid enough to abduct someone and then keep that person in the store (anyone else could walk in) while wearing clothing and looking the way he did (long hair, t-shirt that says, "Megadeth")? The way he looked stood out and would be so easy for witnesses to remember. I don't think someone would be dressed/looking that way or acting that way if they were trying to abduct someone: it just doesn't add up to me.

Since the only other good lead is the "friend", I think that's where the focus should stay until/unless any other good leads ever turn up.

Until we really know who took Deborah, I'm choosing to believe it's Megadeth.

It's too much of a coincidence for a robbery to occur just minutes after a kidnapping took place in the same location. Something fishy's going on...

Umm...if somebody that is less than honest entered an obviously abandoned store why wouldn't they act like "Megadeth" did? In fact, I'm surprised that he didn't load up on beer and cigarettes while he was there.

Having said that, if he had just kidnapped Ms. Poe, why would he still be in the store? If she were the "objective" why bother hanging around until customers (or a cop) came along?

Thank you. I can't understand why certain people keep saying "it's an incredible coincidence that another crime happens just minutes later." It's a crime of opportunity, as I stated, before. If he hadn't happened upon an empty store, it wouldn't have happened.

It's safe to conclude he was up to no good, because if he were searching for the cashier he would have said something to the other customer like, "I don't work here, I'm trying to find someone who does." So I definitely think he was being opportunistic trying to rob the store before he was interrupted. Maybe the interruption scared him into leaving shortly after. The cops did say no money was found missing. There is no logical reason why this man would attempt to abduct Deborah, and then linger around in the store so he could wait on this lady buying cigarettes.

I absolutely agree with this assessment.

That's because she interrupted him mid-abduction. That's what makes it so creepy!
