One tiny detail question I would really like to know the answer to is about Nisha's phone. We've heard that her phone (land line) didn't have an answering machine or voice mail, but did it have call waiting? If someone in her house picked up call waiting, and it was a butt dial, they would have flipped back to the other call and the open call could have gone on for ... I don't know, a while? I remember it was possible to get stuck on call waiting for a considerable time.

This whole story has been an exercise in remembering back to the early cell phone era, too. NOW my cell phone has a smart feature that will disconnect after some amount of time of not detecting any voices on the call, but I'm pretty sure my cell phone in 1999 wouldn't have done that.
