BBM... I kind of get the impression that maybe she did talk to him... "I told you..." then she states that at the time she didn't know what was going on, and that she still doesn't know what's going on, because he didn't tell her anything. Almost sounds like she's giving her police statement. Kind of like "I spoke with him, but he didn't tell me anything" The police have probably been questioning her over and over and over at this point.

IDK

Idk either, it sounds to me like a VM message...as in i'll try to get ahold of you tomorrow since i missed you today.

This picture looks so much different to me versus the same one previously shown...

I agree.
He looks huge in this picture.
Much more in line with the 265 that has been mentioned.

My thoughts on the contents of the cart is that it is either a tent or sleeping bags and food items. They can hop on the Appalachian trail and be difficult to find. If he had camping gear already or a tent then they wouldn't need too much stuff really. food, backpack?, maybe a light source and sleeping bags.

editing to add: He may of even bought a hunting rifle or ammo if he planned on hunting for their food.

There are soooooo many things wrong here. Why did TS move in a man that she met online esp when she has a 12 yr old CHILD in her home? How did BS's dad not know, or if he did know, WHY didn't he do anything about it? Why didn't the aunt who saw JE stroking BS's hair DO something about it?!

Any way this story ends will be tragic. Either BS helped in the murder of her mother or she has been taken against her will. Its hard to say whether she is with him willingly or not - I remember how it is to be a 12 yr old child in "love" - but either way, she is with this monster and her whole life has pretty much been ruined. I hope that she is found safe and sound ASAP. :(

she also looks like she is pulling on her shirt or something.... Anyone else see that???

I see what you're saying.... like she's nervous or scared...

He definitely looks like he has something behind his back. It may not be that little black thing....but he's pushing the left side of the cart with his belly. (Can't use left hand) His right hand is too far over to the right to be able to steer the cart straight...it would have kept veering to the left. IMO

I've done the one handed...even it out with the belly before while trying to stear a cart and hold the hand of a toddler...

I saw an article that said he's cooperating fully.
They may not want the dad talking.. if she doesn't have a good relationship with him or something, then it may strengthen the resolve to stay away.. depending upon what the perv. told her.

When I look at that photo of the still from Walmart for some reason I get the feeling that perhaps he made up some type of story to convince her to go along with him. She doesn't look like she is happy and neither does he. Maybe she doesn't even know her mother is dead. HOWEVER - since LE did not tell us what was purchased at Walmart I can't decide it seems what ever they bought was incriminating enough to not be released. MO

The picture from what I can tell looks like they bought some of those BLUE reusable shopping bags (large ones) and whatever they do have only a few white bags but again I see the other blue cloth bags. I also notice he has one hand on the shopping car. Is he holding something in this hand (the one behind his back)? Why one hand on cart, is that to keep control of the girl?

People can keep saying "She went with him willingly" or whatever but the fact is she's a kid - even if she doesn't think she is, she's just 12 yrs old! What is willingly to a 12 yr old kid who is possibly being molested and having her mind messed with by this pedophile? People can speculate that she was in a "Relationship" with him, but a 12 yr old cannot be in a relationship with a grown man, it is molestation or rape regardless what he made her believe was happening!

The victim’s mother and missing girl’s grandmother, Liz Dyer of South Boston, said Tuesday she continues to wait for any information on her granddaughter’s safety.

“Police have not told us anything,” she said speaking from her Eastover Drive home.

“We know she was beaten, and they’re doing an autopsy

Hcb is her name for JE. I wonder if her mom found out about their relationship and he freaked out and beat her to death and took BS and ran.

I think hcb is hub with the letter c tipped over. I think they have been in a relationship with each other and he killed her mom and they are on the run together. JMO.

I don't think people mean it in a she is involved or responsible sort of a way. To me it says more about him, is he a manipulator and one that needs his victim to be "in love" and "cooperating" which may bode better for her living through these events. Versus the he took her by physical force and he thinks if he turns his back for a second she will flee.

She may not live through either scenario considering what happened to her mother, but one has a slightly better shot than the other. If he trusts her and thinks their in it together she might get enough room to seek help. If she is a hostage less so.

I wonder what happened on Sunday that we don't know about yet. The friend was concerned, the police swung by but saw nothing unusual, mom called but didn't reach him, and this shopping trip was the same day?

You are absolutely right, but just bc us adults see it doesn't mean that a 12 yr old girl DOES. It IS rape, it IS wrong and scary and awful. However, given what has been reported, my take is that BS is completely enamored (sp?) with JE and has tunnel vision when it comes to him. Broken home, brother died, grieving mom = this child is starved for attn, even if it is from a grown man and completely inappropriate. Sadly, she is too young to see that. :(

Yes it looks like A Tent... So maybe they would be coming down this way....

That looks like a tent to me. I looked at the wal-mart site for that store and the only one they carry in store is the Ozark Trail Dome camping Tent for 2. The walmart site didn't show it's packaging but I found it's packaging at Amazon.
Amazon.com: Ozark Trail 2 Person Dome Tent 7'x 7': Sports & Outdoors

If you look closely at the photo, you can see the blue object is sitting higher towards the top of the cart. There appears to be a large box under the blue object.

I agree about her mental state. I mostly meant the speculation in the media and FB and elsewhere when people say she went with him "Willingly". I know we here at WS know better, its the rest of the viewing public that seems to view things (victims) differently when words like "Relationship" or "Willingly" are tossed out there.

From article posted by FHC....

http://www.gazettevirginian.com/inde...news&Itemid=54


Dyer said she only met Brittany’s suspected abductor, Jeffrey Scott Easley, one time.

But she was quick to add, “We didn’t like what we saw.”

The worried grandmother said she had been unaware Easley was living with her daughter and granddaughter until two weeks ago when they came home for Thanksgiving.

“I saw him for the first time Thanksgiving,” and Dyer said what the family saw that day concerned members enough to prompt them to contact Social Services.

Dyer’s sister, who asked not to be identified, said she hosted the family’s Thanksgiving gathering attended by Tina, Brittany and Easley at her home in the county.

“He kept touching her (Brittany’s) hair, caressing her, touching her hand and consuming her with his eyes,” she said. “Normally I would have said something then and there, but the house was full of people.”

The aunt, who was contacted by Headline News’ Nancy Grace for her Monday night program on the missing girl, explained several days after the Thanksgiving dinner she called her niece (Tina) in Salem to express her concerns.

“I called Tina, and she said ‘he’s leaving right away.’ I told her to call me when he left. After she said he was leaving, I thought things were ok,” the aunt continued.

The article goes on to say she contacted Social Services, but by the time she got the info for the right department it was Friday and too late....

I totally agree with this post. I have a DD who just turned 13 and she is in NO WAY ready for this type of decision.
Even if she wanted to go with him, even if she thinks she's in love with him...etc.... He is THE ADULT. It's kidnapping and if there is a sexual relationship, it's rape. Not statutory rape, RAPE. At least that's how the laws are in Louisiana.

I think that is a man, sitting on a bench with his loaded buggy by him.
This is the part of the store between the "store" and the parking lot. The little are as you first walk in.

So we have the factors leading up to the blow up. Tina says you have to go, my family has called CPS, I can't lose my child, psycho who has been grooming his HCB tells her they are going to be ripped apart, blah blah blah

Lets runaway together.

I wonder if she knows what happened to her mother.
I am torn between thinking it would scare her too bad to be able to think or that if she doesn't know she has no idea how much danger she is in.

Another note, I'm in healthcare just like TS - craaaazy hours. Unfortunately, JE had a lot of alone time with BS - if he doesn't work, as I'm assuming he doesn't since no one has mentioned an employer. I wonder how her attendance at school was? Was she skipping days to spend with him while Mom was at work and/or sleeping from a night shift?

I thought I had posted the whole 2nd presser, but it was only the part with Jeff's mother. Here's the whole almost 15 minutes....I hope..

He's been married twice!! 2000 (NC) & 2004 (AL). If you look to the right of the main video, there is one that says "Easley, missing girl spotted in Salem" (BS, red shirt) that is 7.45 minutes long. That's a good video too with new pics and many angles of the case.

Been a very long two days. Did get to see the first presser but missed the one at 3:30 P.M. Thanks to everyone who posted the links and took the time to post what was being said during the pressers. It has taken me a good while to read all of the postings that have occurred since I left the house this morning at 7 a.m. Just now caught up.

I hate to admit I don't have really anything new to add except maybe one or two things. Some have been wondering why LE will not mention what was purchased by JE and BS at Walmart. I am really tired and not sure of the exact wording, but what I thought I heard during the presser was that the items purchased could actually give an indication of where they may be going. I took this to mean possibly buying something they could use in warmer climate; i.e., some of you think maybe they have a tent in that shopping cart.

I have to admit I had a sort of strange feeling as I drove up into the area of TS and BS's home early this morning. I did notice there appeared to be more police cars sort of patrolling around the town of Salem than one might normally see. Also, FWIW, the VA State Police Headquarters is also right there on that main street not too awfully far from Walmart (I could not really guess in mileage though) but on the same stretch of highway. I heard in the presser that VSP and FBI are assisting.

Also, my neice's children attend the little elementary school where BS was apparently a student last year. My neice showed me last year's yearbook and pointed out BS's school picture. We both remarked at how different she looks now in the pictures that are on FB, MS, etc. The little girl in last year's school picture looks like a "little girl".

Had to drive past this particular Walmart at least 3 times today. This is not too far from my own home (left home at 7:10 a.m.. and due to traffic, took me til 7:55 a.m. to get to my destination (about 2 miles from this Walmart).

Sure hope they find Brittany very soon. This is a very puzzling and sad situation and the more I hear, the worse things appear.

I have to agree with all the posters here that say a 12 year old girl is not in a "realtionship" with anyone. A 12 year old girl is easily manipulated. I think this man manipulated a grieving 12 year old and her mother into believing he loved them so he could prey on "both" of them. I am a fairly intelligent middle-aged person who was preyed upon. These type of men (sociopaths) are very smooth and it's hard "not" to believe them because they are so believable. If she knows what happened to her mom, or was in the home when it happened, he has certainly convinced this girl that it was for "their" greater good. I would love to believe that this was a father/daughter relationship, but her postings say something different. It was almost as if they were in a competition for his attention, and by the time Mom figured it was not an innocent relationship, it had gone too far. JMO

I'm in Walmart a lot ( crossing my fingers that Target hits Salem soon ) and there's NOTHING by that set of doors that could be mistaken as something in the background. I was wondering if it could possibly be a belt ( I know belts hang down like that, especially if it has fell out of the belt loop ) yet I have no clue why his arm is even behind his back ; so I'm not sure. If he was putting a wallet, etc. away, then his shirt would be partially up as well. From the looks of the "clearer" picture, he's got something ( the blue item ) on one side of the shopping cart, but you can see white Walmart bags on the other side.
