Some interesting speculation there WanDash. It makes more sense than most. I particularly like your idea of MH being familiar with this street. I had not found Buzfeed office location before. I found a story about an office opening at Beverly Blvd and Fuller on Sept 3. Was this the location of the office on 6/18/13 ? It makes perfect sense that he was driving towards the office.
Up stream you all were discussing the tire and wheel location. You have a picture of the tire in a picture from LL. It is on the sidewalk of on the west side of Highland. (Beside brick wall) I believe the LAPD claims the wheel was found just south of Clinton in the center median of Highlands. The drivers side front tire and wheel must have separated from each other as well as the car.

Based on the pictures of the water back flow taken on 6/28/13 I think a mark was left on the concrete that appears to be made by the rim. IMO the tire may have separated the rim at the curb. The rim or wheel separated the car at tree impact. Could a tire go under the car? I have never seen a separated tire go under a moving vehicle. If it did go under the car could it cause the release of fuel sufficient to start the fire observed on the surveillance tape?
I still find it difficult to believe Mercedes has not released info concerning this "accident". If there is evidence that proves foul play it probably resides in that car or the computer system it was communicating with prior to impact. I wonder if any of his family has tried to have the car independently analyzed?

What do you make of this document. I am curious if you have seen it or not?
Page 84 by the browser page 59 on the image though.
Seems DHS, FPS were contacting him on OWS?
Department Of Homeland Security, Federal Protective Service, Occupy Wall Street?
Coach spent much effort trying to observe the driver at Santa Monica crossing. I spent more time with this than I care to admit. I concluded it is beyond the technology of the film to make meaningful conclusions...
I agree with you that LAPD investigation has been very inadequate and they have not given anybody a reason to believe their conclusions.
Without knowing the number of frames per second that the surveillance camera was recording at; the number of frames per second the camera phone that made the copy was recording at; speed of playback; IMO it is impossible to accurately estimate the speed of impact. Same with the observed explosion. If Krikorian had provided this info and more tape that could give us comparisons it would have much more meaning.
Det White has been given many more cases since this event. Workload is an effective method of controlling outcomes. This event is quickly fading away.
BuzzFeed sure seems to be moving on. I wonder if they were happy with the work MH was doing for them. There seems to be a large difference in MH interests and style of journalism than what BuzzFeed usually produces.
