Got word back, they don't teach gregg or any type of shorthand. So Hope wouldn't have learned it in school.
I know a lot of you have said the symbols look like gregg shorthand. That they spell out "save me" which gets me excited that Hope is still alive.
Thanks to all those who have been sending in theories and breakdowns of the footage. Special thanks to earthian for the following. Click the image to see a larger version.
earthian says: Maybe the squiggles aren't actually any kind of symbolic glyph or abstract graphical representation. Maybe they are trying to indicate something that is going on in the image. I got the idea when I noticed the large loop squiggle seems to like up with Connie's face.
Here's an enhanced capture of them two of them apparently eating cheerios together. Connie has some beverage in a mug with a flower with five petals on the side. In the background over Connie's head is a frame picture, but I can't really make it out.
And here's the sequence of frames with the squiggles. One thing that struck me is that the vertical loop seems to outline the side of her face, while the horizontal mark is basically aligned with her nose in each frame. The doodles overlap just whatever in the background, but scrupulously avoid overlapping her face. U might just be that they show up better against the dark background, but I'm not prepared to rule anything out at this point.
These ones are cropped and numbered, but otherwise untouched.
NEED AUDIO HELP
People have said that they hear other voices when I hold up the tape recorder and play back Hope and Connie's phone conversation in video one. It sounds like something but we could use your help.
Also at first we thought the latest message on the hotline was someone pranking but I've been getting numerous emails from people who seem to hear
Some say strings of numbers and others say phrases
A few have offered to clean up the audio. Is there anyone who could provide a before and after. Also if you could share how you did it that would be amazing.
We're getting close to finishing another video and should have it up any day now. Lastly, we have received close to a thousand comments. I'm trying to go through them and as soon as I can I'll post them.
Thanks for your continued support.
