I'm guessing LE would be able to tell...I'll still email them tomorrow - and post the letter. Need to crawl into bed right now, but I'll do it first thing in the morning.

Hello,

I've been following Samantha Clarke's case and post on websleuths.com - here's her thread: VA VA - Samantha Ann Clarke -19 years old - Orange - September 13, 2010 - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community

A poster noticed yesterday that there was activity on her myspace page - a friend was added. We thought that Law Enforcement wouldn't add a friend, so we wanted to email and just make sure you guys knew. Perhaps she friend requested that person a while ago and they only now accepted, but still - we all want to see her safely home.

There's activity on her MS page where she friended someone yesterday....

If all it shows is she friended someone, it does NOT mean she was logged onto her MySpace at all. If she sent someone a friend request (could be days, months, weeks, etc. ago...) and that person just accepted the friend request yesterday...it will show up on her profile as her being friends with ___ (whatever the guy/girl's name is).

It works the same way on Facebook. So, if that's all it says..there is no guarantee that it was in fact Samantha who logged onto her MySpace and accepted a friend request.

On her myspace back on aug. 28 she says that she's worried and makes it sound like she's possibly pregnant-that was my interpretation anyway. So does anyone think she might have just run off out of embarassment or to be with some guy? I hope her family gets some peace soon.

I just read that comment and I agree w/ you, it sure sounds that way (possibly pregnant). ALL her recent comments sound like she has been feeling troubled and depressed :-( I pray she is found safe and soon.

Samantha Ann Clarke gets homesick. Once, the 19-year-old left her hometown of Orange for nearby Culpeper for a two-week stretch, but during that time called her mother or aunt every day until she made the 17-mile journey back home. The silence the past three weeks is what really worries Barbara Tinder, Clarke's mother, who says if her daughter could call home, she would.

Samantha has been missing for 24 days and there hasn't been any new developments in her story. That is sad.

Her family says that she was last seen at their house on Lindsay Drive, when she told a family member that she was leaving and would be back the next morning. She doesn't seem to have taken anything with her. One article indicated that they don't even know what she was wearing when she left. Based on the little information that I have seen, I believe that she probably disappeared of her own accord.

Here is a map of where she lives in relation to dowtown Orange and a close up of the building that she lives in.
http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/ee226/acreesefamily/SamanthaClarkeHome.jpg
http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/ee226/acreesefamily/SamanthaClarkeHome2.jpg

Her address is just on the edge of town and there are train tracks that run on the other side of the street from where Samantha lives. Did she maybe follow the train tracks? Have they searched along the train tracks?

It appears that she lives in some sort of apartment complex or townhouse row, though it is hard to tell from the photos. Were people in the building questioned? What time did she leave? Was it still light out? Is it possible that others were outside at the time that she left and have they been questioned?

<snipped map>


McDaniel was found, though, only a few days later. She got quite a lot of press recently, since the Morgan Harrington murder, as people speculate about whether the Route 29 stalker has returned.

Samantha doesn't really fit that profile if she wasn't driving. With those depressed frantic posts, I just hope she didn't decide to end it all.

Reading through her MS comments, I wonder if she met someone online, who came to pick her up and she was met with foulplay? Or maybe, if she was pregnant, someone took her to get an abortion and it didn't end well.

I hope that LE has talked to all of her friends on MS. She seemed to be mostly adding male friends lately and was looking for a relationship.

Regardless, her disappearance is troubling.

Anne Carolyn McDaniel was not driving a car and was found 7 miles from where the rt 29 victim Alica show water reynolds was found in lignum. Which is 33 miles from Orange .

My point is only that they have unsolved murders and this should be getting alot of attention. Anytime someone goes missing they should get lots of attention but in an area where they have had crimes as they have had before and they are not solved it should get extra attention.

Samatha may have taken off on her own and be staying with friends and have no clue she is reported missing. She wouldnt hear it on the news. Or she could have been walking up the street at exactly the wrong time with the wrong person passing by.
I do not think the later should be dicounted because of her MS post.

"We've gotten tips from as far away as Fredericksburg and have been working with Madison, Culpeper and the State Police on this case," Orange police Chief Jim Fenwick said.

Samantha Ann Clarke, 19, left her home in the town on Orange Sept. 13 after telling her younger brother that she would return. Fenwick said she did not drive, but it is not known whether she was picked up or left on foot. She did not have a cell phone.

http://www2.orangenews.com/news/2010/oct/13/police-follow-clarke-leads-ar-560929/

"Orange police chief Jim Fenwick said that investigators have been following numerous false leads posted to social networking sites like facebook, which indicate that Clarke has been found alive or dead."

I find this interesting, although disturbing. I haven't seen this before in a "non-hot" case...and it's very odd. Does anyone think so, too? It indicates to me that perhaps more than one person was involved...I don't know why I get that feeling, but I've never seen this (the false leads saying both dead and alive on FB,etc).

My heart is heavy as it's been a month..where is Samantha? Someone has to know something!!! On a side note, wonder if there are any missing posters that have been created? I'd like to put them up in the small towns surrounding that area....found it odd that today, I finally saw a Morgan Harrington poster at the Post Office...there wasn't one until just this week, even when she was missing...even when she was found 10 miles from here. I want to go ahead and put up Samantha's poster...it seems high time.

I would not know about freight stops but I dont think they they have a public train service. I just cant believe she hasnt been located yet.

I dont believe Samantha took off for a new life at this point. The LE press releases stated they had searched in places that were brought to their attention no mention of how or who bought them to attention.
Was She hinting at being pregnant on her My space?

I am not familiar with Orange I'm in Gloucester VA...I'll keep my eyes out. She did mention on her Myspace page that she was in the hospital for kidney stones, so I don't think she would have jumped on a train at all. Perhaps she went out looking for some pain killers where she shouldn't have and met up with someone nefarious person. I pray not.

Do you all remember the Taylor Behl case Well I had just moved here in Gloucester, my husband and I went up to the Wal Mart to get a cheap BB grill until the packers came with our stuff. Anyway, I have this habit of reading personal license plates while walking in a parking lot or driving. I just do, well I saw this one car and I had to stop to read it because what I thought it said was "Greenpeace" and I rolled my eyes thinking there is a fringe idiot, but it made me stop and read it, then when I came out I looked at it again and it didn't say greenpeace but GRN ERTH. I remembered it clearly. Then about 14 days later I hear about her missing and cops are looking for that license. I called the cops to report I saw a car in the wal mart parking lot but I wasn't sure on the day now but I told them it was between the 30th and 5th but I was sure it was that car. Well Wal Mart didn't have their CAMERA'S WORKING!!!!!!!!!!!!

Later they found Taylor Behl about 15 miles from me.

After this it made me to really pay attention more to my surroundings because you never KNOW!

Lera, absolutely! If I get a creepy feeling or something about a car, I mentally note the license plate or snap a picture with my phone (if I'm not driving). I think more people should do that...and VA has one of the highest rates of personalized plates, which does help with memory aid.

I suspect they are talking to her group of friends. Her myspace was my source of information for that. I hope they are also looking into other possibilites as well.

Snipped by me for length .

The person that wrote about the detectives visiting...hm. Lots of anger there, but I don't sense he did anything wrong...just annoyed. Interesting that he would post on her page about it, though.

I don't believe she is off on an "adventure" either...I surely wish I felt that way. If she had that kidney stone on August 27th, I don't think it would be impacting anything now...unless there was more to it than that. I know everyone is different, but as soon as I passed mine, the pain was gone. I can't imagine them giving her super duper painkillers to go home with...maybe in the ER until she passed it, but that's just a guess. She's young and docs don't like to hand that out to kids her age (usually) - especially at an ER.

As far as the being pregnant, I see the comment you're talking about...and that seems very likely by her post, but....if she was in the ER on August 27th, I'm pretty sure they would have given her a pregnancy test before doing imaging of the kidney stone....so I'm confused as to how she wouldn't know if she posted that thought on Aug. 28th.

Hmm. Come home Samantha!!!!!!

I just wondered if she couldnt of still been hinting she might be ,not that she was or thought she was but she might of been hinting at it for some reason. Or there was another issue she was waiting on results for?

The train tracks made me wonder if she might have walked them for a short cut and something happened an accident or something. I dont think she jumped a train either. I do wonder if she may have harmed herself because of the post she was making. The LE offices seem to have different idea which makes me believe they may have a few unresolved clues or leads but cannot say what those are. So it makes me lean towards no self harm because of those reasons.

The police keep running the same press release over and over.

I also dont believe the family has contacted any missing person advocates to help inspire positive action on the media press part. Like a human interest peice.

I know people are interested she has 500 people on her facebook page. That would be alot higher if the family was more active on it but I understand why they are not.
If the appointed a facebook addict to man the facebook it might work out better for them.
Also if they told stories about Samantha and talked about her interest and hopes for the future on her facebook it would encourge a public stir. They need to personalize her with the public. IMO

If you listen to the rumors swirling around town about this poor girl and her family, it's a small wonder the police aren't releasing a whole lot of info, especially if they are true. Supposedly the family is fighting with each other over it now because extended family is blaming mom over stuff, and other family members are trying to run their own investigation and are screwing things up for the cops. Regardless of what information can or can't be released, if the police are putting something out there, the media should be picking up on it. If the police started releasing all sorts of sordid details about her life and activities, sure, the media would pick up on it and then everyone would start bashing the police for doing that to Samantha. So I'm sure their lack of details in the press releases is for a good reason. I know a lot of cops and deputies in Orange and they are busting their tails on this. But they are pretty tight lipped on it, so there must be something to the rumors. Sad.

I'm so disgusted with VA LE. From the cases I've seen here recently it seems that LE believes that people just walk away from their lives and LE never suspects until weeks and months later that somehow foul play must be involved. WTG, LE...let evidence deteriorate and suspects cover up things, and memories (of others, who might be of some help) become fuzzy.

There was an article printed in our local paper once about my local LE getting a tip about two skulls at a Mining company. The guy had to take a picture of the skulls before they would go look . They go look and the skulls had been moved . The LE office issueed a statement that when the ground dryed out some they would go look again. Nothing else since. From the photos the skulls apeared to be human.
Meanwhile there were two missing people a man and his wife that have been missing since the 90's. I might call the local paper about getting that article today.

Again, if you listen to the rumor mill swirling around Orange, neither Samantha nor her mother were exactly saints. BUT THAT DOESN'T MATTER! What matters is that she is missing. I'm sure we would all love to know every juicy detail and the name of every person involved, but maybe, just maybe, there's a reason why none of that is being released. The question that needs to be asked is why the media isn't picking up on it. The police are putting almost daily releases out. So why hasn't the media asked more about it? There are at least 4 LE agencies either directly or indirectly working on this case. Gee, if there was nothing to go on, why would that be the case???

Reaperfearer,

I share your sentiment that none of Samantha's activities matter - what matters is that she is missing. I can only speak for myself, but from what HAS been released, LE certainly is working on this case. We're just trying to sift through any information available that may help. Media exposure is something that most of us push for in all cases.

I hear your frustration - and we're all frustrated - there have been many, many cases in VA that have been hard to swallow. What I'm (we're) here to do is to seek that information, to generate interest - in short, to help. If LE asked that we not include certain things, we wouldn't, and they do have the link to this thread - I emailed it myself.

I appreciate and respect your passion. We're all just trying to help.

I hope these 4 agencies are getting infomation they need to find Samantha. It does not apear they are as Samantha is still missing.

I sure have given thought about LE having suspects or a group of supects. I have hoped for it.

I do not think at this point keeping stuff quiet is helping and maybe they should release a detail that will help them get the tips they need.

I also wanted to mention Samantha's moms facebook, it is public
and this statement under her picture.

I had to wonder if mom had a ex or current b/f with a grudge agaisnt Samantha.

I also wonder why her activities for a few day before have not been mentioned. Did she go anywhere or call anyone or wash her laundry ect.

The LE officals in Orange said they believe fowl play. Well why? And if you think there is a reason to put it in print then please enlighten us . We do not know if there is a murdering fool running arround attacking random people or specific persons and we should.
What kind of shoes did she have on? Someone should know that. Even if they didnt see her leave. Is her purse missing? ID?

No information is going to get zero responce.
A describtion of a certain car might help lead to tips to. Even if it is a long shot.

Rumor alert..
I was told by facebooker that Samantha is rumored to have ran off with two people she met on Myspace. I dont believe it because the police said fowl play and we saw her myspace . This was information that her mother had said to have been telling people I can provide the message with ID's blocked out if I need to..

Samantha Clarke Still Missing 10 Weeks Later

Posted: Nov 23, 2010 6:17 PM CST
Updated: Nov 23, 2010 10:05 PM CST

There is a woman in Orange County approaching the holidays wondering if she will ever be able to celebrate them again with her daughter. Barbara Tinder's 19-year-old daughter, Samantha Ann Clarke, disappeared 10 weeks ago.

Clarke's name has been in the news, but certainly not received the kind of national attention given to Morgan Harrington. That is odd, considering there are enough similarities, that if the Today Show was interested in one, they ought to be interested in the other. But that has not been the case for Clarke's family; their tragedy has played out very differently, and very quietly, at home in Orange.

Barbara Tinder's world is spinning out of control. One question haunts her: where is Samantha?

Not slamming the Harrington's - they are fortunate to have had all the needed resources at their disposal in searching for their beautiful Morgan. It's just unfortunate that not all people have those resources available to them when their loved one goes missing.

Soulmagnet, I wonder about the train tracks, as well. Is there a freight stop near her house? Do people ride trains these days?

Amtrak trains stop in Culpepper and Charlottesville, both somewhat close by. You'd be looking at either going north to DC, south to Lynchburg/NC, or west to Staunton. I don't remember seeing a lot of people taking Amtrak when I lived in Charlottesville but I imagine that some students going back to NoVa would have taken it.

The search for Samantha Ann Clarke has led Orange investigators back to a lake in Greene County.

This link is to a story coming out of Fredericksburg, Virginia. The individual recently arrested and charged with raping two teenaged girls lives approximately one mile from Samantha's residence. That is very close proximity and cannot be ignored while investigating the disappearance of a nineteen year old.

For the tenth time, a Virginia State Police dive team is searching a lake in Greene County. Investigators are looking for leads in the disappearance of Samantha Ann Clarke. The 19-year-old hasn't been seen since last September.



10 times? Either the police are pretty confident that she is there, or they have nothing else to go on. Or both.

I would hope not, Orange is a big wooded ,wilderness in terms of a missing person. Everytime I drive out there I wonder where she could be,one day it hit me she could be anywhere out there. If anyone hears of volunteer searches (i think they do there to clear area's ) please post , I would be out there in a heartbeat and driving time.

The find Samantha Clark facebook has been taken offline. So has Samantha's personal facebook.

I also had the thought that we never really heard what Samantha had been doing before she went missing. We also do not have a way to tell for sure if she was the one to post the messages to her myspace ,which hints at a person who might harm themselves but for some reason (I think a good one) LE has said they suspect foul play. I do not know if her myspace is still acive or not ,but I do believe both of the now offline facebook pages are part of the case building OC is doing . IMO.

Maybe I'm old fashioned, but one thing I noticed about Samantha is that she is way too sexualized (is there such a word) in her approach to love and life. There are only comments (crude ones at best) under her suggestively posed myspace pictures. There are no comments under her other pictures. In the photo in the beginning of this thread, she is wearing a t-shirt which says "Hotter than I should be" Basically, I'm thinking she may have got into some kind of bad situation with a man. I think she wants love, but may have been looking in all the wrong places. In a sense, playing with fire. Yet, she did write some disturbing things on her myspace as well, so she could have got carried away with narcotics and/or alcohol. I hope they find her. She just seems confused and a little misguided. Most kids go through a phase. JMO

Another area person listed as missing is Samantha Clarke, who went missing from Orange County in September 2010. Clarke told family members on the night she disappeared that she would be visiting friends for the night and would return in the morning.

Anyone think Samantha's case may be connected to Morgan Harrington's and/or Lauren Susann Smith (VA VA - Lauren Susann Smith, 22, Madison County, 21 Nov 2011 - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community).

I don't know whether or not they're connected, but if Morgan's killer is still out there (as opposed to being dead or in jail on other charges) and in the area, I doubt Morgan was his first abduction & murder or his last.

Wow that article has a lot of info in it. I had been reading this thread think how can there be so little information about this girl. Hard to say what really happened, or who was telling the truth, but there sure seem to be a lot of leads for the police to follow. Two lovers, a jealous girlfriend, and older man leaving a lot of messages . . . crazy stuff.

I hope they find her and whoever took her.

Families of missing teens search for answers

Though their stories may differ, the families of the missing bear a similar scar.

[snip]

From her family’s townhouse in Orange County, Samantha Clarke’s image looks out from a large window. Below it, in white letters, read the words, “Still missing.”

[snip]

Searching through Samantha’s phone records, investigators discovered multiple calls from the same number the night she disappeared.

“Those phone calls came back to a phone associated with Randy Taylor,” Berry said.

Taylor, now 48, became a suspect early on, she said. He remains the sole suspect in Samantha’s disappearance, Berry said, but has not been charged.

Orange County, Va. Commonwealth Attorney Diana H. Wheeler told WTVR in August that Taylor was a person of interest in the case of missing teenager Samantha Ann Clarke, 19, who vanished in September of 2010.

"There was a bit of contact between him and Samantha Clarke in the days immediately preceding her disappearance," Wheeler told WTVR. "He was one of a number of people she had been having contact with."

Wheeler emphasized that Taylor was never charged in connection with Clarke's disappearance.

Clarke mystery remains

It’s almost been four years since Samantha Clarke was seen leaving her Town of Orange home and though she’s still considered missing, her family fears she’s been forgotten.

[snip]

Clarke’s mother, Barbara Tinder, said she’s irritated by the lack of attention her daughter’s case has received when compared to similar cases.

[snip]

Tinder said she hasn’t received any updates on her daughter’s case from law enforcement, who cited a recent gag order.

According to Town of Orange Police Chief Jim Fenwick, the gag order is the result of a motion granted in the Murphy case, in which a suspect has been arrested and charged with the missing girl’s murder. That suspect is also a person of interest in Clarke’s disappearance, according to a summer press release from Orange County Commonwealth’s Attorney Diana Wheeler. Several gag orders have been issued in the case, including one which forbids witnesses during that trial, which begins in May, from mentioning any other missing persons cases in Virginia in relation to that suspect, Randy Taylor.
