From WDBJ7 FB page:

Here's info from state police: Virginia State Police Brittany Mae Smith was last seen Dec. 2. Roanoke Co. Police were not aware of her missing until today - Dec. 6 - and then immediately contacted VSP so we could issue the AMBER Alert. Jeffrey Easley is not her father, but an acquaintance of her mother. - VSP Public Relations Office

OK, so Brittany's mother was found deceased in her house, and now it's been discovered that Brittany hasn't been seen for 4 days? Also, her mom's car is missing.

The situation seems that they believe that this mother's acquaintance (Easley) had something to do with the mom's death and then took Brittany and the vehicle. NCMEC lists two vehicles, so perhaps the mom's vehicle and Mr. Easley's are both missing?

Unfortunately, I've heard this story before and it doesn't usually turn out well. Especially since time is not in Brittany's favor it seems.

Have just spoken with my neice and she is really upset about this. This occurred within blocks of her childrens' school. I told her I do not feel it was a random homicide/abduction, as the police are saying they "think" this guy is an acquaintance" of the child's mother. Seems that the delay in the Amber Alert was because police were not notified until the co-workers of the mother called when she had not shown up for work.

I tried to look up this Easely person on google but currently all that comes up is the information about the current amber alert. i was going to see if he has a criminal record, or was a RSO, etc. But it is good that the amber alert is out there.

This is terrible. I know a couple of people that live right by the house, as well as it's literally about a minute away from my neighborhood. I really hate that there are days in-between the time she's been missing and reported. It makes me think of the recent Ohio family/friend murders and the abduction of the little girl. I hope this creep is caught and she is returned safely !

Hope it is okay to post this information regarding a FB page for this JE but this is important in my opinion. There is a FB page for him and if you click on viewing all his friends there is a girl named Brittany on there with his same last name AND it is one of the same pictures being distributed for this Brittany Smith. Could they be secretly married? with her only 12 years old? Or is it wishful thinking on his part?

The pic. of him used in the AA looks like a DL photo (blue background) and who knows how long ago that one was taken. The MS photo is more recent. It's really disturbing if that is Brittany in his profile pic., but it sure looks like her.

This IS the girl in the photo of Brittany Smith.

So if I am making this confusing, let me say:
1) JE had this BE listed as one of his FB friends.
2) I went into the FB page for this BE and it is the exact picture of Brittany Mae Smith in the ambert alert photos.

It does really look like her.

Some of my friends have allowed their kids to have myspace and facebook pages (don't get me started) and they will think they are being safe by letting the kid use a mothers maiden name or other just random last names. Maybe that's why she has his last name the mother thought she was being smart.

that myspace photo though looks too comfy and cozy, if i didn't know the story I'd think they were a couple.. (ick)

MsFacetious
12-06-2010, 03:51 PM
Wow... that is definitely her in the myspace profile picture. It's even on the same angle as the first picture in this thread, which makes it easier to tell.

That gives me hope that maybe she is gone willingly... whether she knows about her Mom or not, maybe she is with him willingly... as gross as the thought may be. I don't think they are married, but maybe that was the "fantasy..."

I wonder if this is a Kayleah Wilson/Amber White type situation... where they were involved with an older guy at just 12? Maybe like Kayleah, Mom found out and forbid it, threatened to call the cops.... and like the cases of teenage girls and their boyfriends... Mom gets killed so the girl and her boyfriend can be together....

I think honestly, that's the best case scenario at this point... as far as Brittany's safety goes.

Brittany spent some of her childhood in South Boston. She is the daughter of Benjamin Smith, a South Boston Police Officer.

Mrs. Smith’s son, William Tyler Matherly, died in the summer of 2009 in a freak accident at the age of 16.

Something just sparked my memory. I wonder if they will release a time of death for the mother ? Also, does anyone know where his vehicle was located ?

Why I'm wondering is because I went to the store on Friday night around 7pm and on the way back home ( I live up in North Beverly Heights ) I had noticed an older red Chevrolet Blazer in front of me turning off Jackson Dr ( in Beverly Heights ) on Texas Hollow Rd. The reason I noticed it was because it cut me off and I had to slow down for it. As soon as I was slowing down to make the turn on Creekwood Dr ( in North Beverly Heights ) I noticed it was all over the road swerving, but kept going straight on Texas Hollow Rd. I assumed it was a drunk driver.

It makes me wonder if it could have been his vehicle ?

Starting to wonder if more than one person was involved in this since there were two vehicles missing; i.e. JE's and the mom's TS. I certainly don't think this 12-year-old drove away in her mother's car.

Thank you for posting this link.

Tina writes so heart-wrenchingly and beautifully to her lost son. She was worried about getting thru the Christmas season that she loves, without the shock as a buffer, from last year. :( She was going to handle it by reaching out to a youth group. So, so sad...

This is truly tragic...I hope that Brittany is OK and is found soon.

Roanoke County Police are not saying how or when Tina Smith died, but they are treating it as a possible homicide. Tina Smith’s co-workers contacted police Monday morning, Hall said.

State Police said Brittany Mae Smith is believed to be in extreme danger and was last seen Thursday, Dec. 2. The child was likely abducted by 32-year-old Jeffrey Scott Easley, a white male, 5’11” tall, weighing 265 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes, said state police.

Easley was a friend of Tina Smith, said the Roanoke County spokesperson.

n all-points bulletin is out for a man that police describe as a "friend" of the family- Jeffrey Scott Easley.

Police say Easley is at least a friend of the family. They also say that there is evidence Easley spent a lot of time at the home, suggesting a possible relationship beyond just friends.

Police showed up to the house on Fort Lewis Circle about 9:30 a.m. Monday this morning and found Tina Smith dead. It took police little time to realize that there was much more going on than a homicide.

"We found out pretty quickly that she had a 12-year old daughter who was not at the scene... had not shown up for school. Nobody seemed to know where she was. We're concerned that her disappearance is going to be, at least a good possibility, it has something to do with the homicide," Lt. Chuck Mason with the Roanoke County Police said.

Police say it's been several days since anyone has seen or heard from Brittany, last reported at the Fort Lewis Circle home.

Her myspace and FB both show her last name as Easley. Also, her last status update on myspace says something about "(hcb)ilu" I know "ilu" is short for "I love you" but what is "hcb" short for. His last status update 3 days ago on myspace says "I've got a lot on my mind (hcb)."

I couldn't see either status update when I looked online on my computer but using myspace mobile from my phone it showed up.

I'm in the area and I have to say I wouldn't hold my breath on any great investigative journalism. One night last week there was a huge crash & explosion on the interstate near our home with a huge blaze that lasted for hours.... the interstate was backed up and sirens blared for hours off and on... I have yet to find out what happened, nothing on the news or in the papers.

I've only been in this area for a year or so but I'm not impressed with their local news sources.

Actually this OT, but just to let you know, there was an idiot driving the wrong way on "581" near Elm or Orange Ave and there was a head-on collision. Not sure about the one he hit, but the driver is said to be "okay" I think. I was born and raised here and am pretty proud of our LE as well as the local news.

Okay. Thanks. You are probably right. I have to admit I am not very good with Facebook and don't go there too often. The whole thing about her last name being Easley on these social networking sites has just thrown me for a loop. This girl is only 12 years old. Now she is without a mother. Already suffered so much with losing her brother. So sad. I hope they can post a picture of the mom's missing car and someone sees it really quick before it is too late for Brittany.

He could have copied that pic off of her phone or one of her friends' pages. He could have known her password and used it to make changes to a page she made, even changing her last name.

I can't imagine that cute little girl being attracted to this man at all. His picture is scary, and he looks like a slob. No amount of flattery, charm, or even promises of fame or money could make one of my girls trust a creep like him.

Her dad also has a FB. Looks like he's LE in South Boston, VA. IF you go to her brother's memorial page that someone linked to earlier, you will see him as a member. His initials are BS. He has a picture of him and BS but she is not listed as a friend on his friend's list. There are posts from her in the past on the memorial page though.

I just wonder when her last name changed on both her MS and FB. Was it before or after she went missing? She updated her MS page 4 days ago and he updated his 3 days ago.

Did you notice the comments under her status update.. one is from JE. On the same day it said something along the lines of "ily2 trust me everything will work out.."

ily2- is i love you too

But.. I also noticed 2 days before that BS wrote a status update saying to leave some love on her brothers tribute page. and at the end of it she abbreviates again "rip wtm imu ilu inu (hcb) ilu"

wtm is her brother who died
imu- i miss you
ilu- i love you
inu- i need you (?)

she actually says hcb in almost all of her status updates

one of her status updates on nov 11 says she went to work out with a "jeff"

she updated her status on MS almost on a daily basis..

That is a possibility.. Because it definitely seems by there interactions on MS from what I can see that they had some sort of relationship going on.. Not appropriate IMO. Do we know how old his wife was?

Sooo... I'm assuming she changed her name on FB and Myspace right around oct 2nd. Since thats what her status update says on Oct. 2. She actually has 3 status updates on oct 2nd. Sounds like they broke up or something and she thought it was because she changed her name on everything..

Investigators now say both Brittany Smith and her mother Tina were last seen on Friday.

We've learned that Brittany's father works for the South Boston Police Department, and is working with investigators.

An autopsy on Tina is expected to be performed on Tuesday.

According to WSLS, it turns out they were both last seen on Friday which was December 3rd.

Yes I think she looks like Brittany, but not sure it is her. Heck. I'm so confused now. I cannot believe this has all happened.

Also, keep thinking about the two vehicles missing (they found the red one) from the home of TS and BS. Then thinking back to the post from Japanda stating she saw an old red Blazer swerving on Friday night in that area. Could that have been 12-year-old BS driving that vehicle possibly having a hard time driving it, and he could have driven her mom's car and they ditched the Blazer and got into the silver Neon? Jumping way ahead of myself here but hopefully this will end with at least Brittany being found alive and not really having gone willingly. I have to babysit about 1 mile from that area very early in the morning. Sure hope they have found her by then.

http://www2.wsls.com/news/2010/dec/06/19/amber-alert-issued-missing-12-yr-old-ar-698326/

Crime scene tape surrounds the home of 41-year-old Tina Smith as police investigate her death as a possible homicide.

"It was like my heart had been cut out," said Smith's next door neighbor Richard Burbage. "This was too close."

Burbage says a knock on the door Sunday is when he first knew something could be wrong. "Lady introduced herself as Tina's best friend from South Boston and that she was worried about her."

He says he and his wife contacted Smith through Facebook and called, but never heard from their neighbor. On Monday, they called police to report her missing.

My mom and I both discussed this and she said the same thing about what if the girl was driving a vehicle ? I seriously think they ditched his Chevrolet Blazer because 1 ; it was "his" vehicle and 2 ; someone stated in a post that the registration was up. If I was on the run, I'd want the better of the two vehicles for sure. I wish I knew where they located the vehicle because it would give piece of mind to me in knowing if I could have possibly seen them. I do remember the back part ( where a spare tire would be located ) having something yellow on it. I can still see them running the STOP sign at Jackson Dr, speeding under the interstate passes, and swerving as they were going up the slight hill right past Creekwood Dr. Thank God they didn't hit me if it was them .....

I really hope they can locate her and get some answers.

MY DAD and TYLER(miss you, much!!) My grandmother who was the only consistency in my life, The military, thank you for all you do. My friends and my kids. Jeff for having so much patience & for loving me anyway

..... Ugh.

Her statuses on here are eerie.

If she had only known HER fate. It makes me very sad.

Very sad. I hope and pray that Brittnay is ok.
I keep thinking that if he was going to kill her he would of done it in the home.
It seems to me that he groomed Brittnay as predators do, gained her trust, had her confide in him, became her "friend" and took advantage of her. There may have been sexual contact with them HOWEVER she is a child and it is the same as if a family member molested her. The entire grooming process to build trust, keep it a secret.

Teens or Tweens dont keep too many secrets from their friends or at least one best friend. Her friends should be able to shed light on a little of what was going on.
I think there is a chance that she may be alive. I hope that his fixation on her is ( i dont know how to say this) but i hope his fixation on her may be in his SICK mind of some kind of caring for her..and maybe just maybe she will be found as the little girl in Ohio was found alive when the others were killed and put in the hollow tree.

It could go either way.. he is a monster and intends on killing her.. or he is desparate to be with her and will only kill if he feels he is cornered. I hope she has a sign from God on how to escape from him/

I am praying she is ok. I also pray that if she is found that she does NOT blame herself.. this is not her fault even if she left with him on her own due to minipulation on his behalf.. This is not her fault.

Being a single mom at times means just that single. I do not let anyone get close to me other than casual date for this reason.. you just never know what a person will do.. call me lonley in not having a live in but my kids are safe.
I am not bashing the mother. Alot of people fool women and men all the time with who they are and then who they "really" are.

I am just going to say that the kids these days are not at all innocent and that they don't listen for crap!! I know of 6 different separate cases from where I live involving kids that are ranged 13 to 15 years old that have snuck out on their parents to go meet boys and do whatever! A lot of these kids their parents don't know. I know that 3 of them HAVE been caught by their parents! They are doing this crap and their parents aren't even aware!

I think this is one of those cases that she was involved with this man and that maybe her mom was interfering! <modsnip> I am just saying.. I don't know I have to go and read through all this but I just wanted to bring this up here.

Brittany is listed as a friend on her Mom's myspace...

So, her Mom would have seen her name on there. If it has been changed since early October.... wow.

Then September 24th BS is complaining about how she hates drama...TS replies with something to the effect if you don't like it don't start it and how she's 'tired of playing 2nd fiddle'....

hmmmmm this just doesn't sound good

I think this is the most shocking thing in this case so far. :eek: This sounds like two sisters fighting over a man. :waitasec:

Nobody should be having a conversation like that with Brittany... she is TWELVE!

I don't think Jeffrey Easley is the only person who forgot that. It sounds like most people viewed her as an adult and treated her as such... I have seen how that ends up too many times.

I really think they had a relationship and quite a few people knew or had some idea about it.

That is horribly sad...because this whole thing could have been prevented a long time ago... but also means odds are much better that Brittany will be safe. So I guess that's the silver lining and still the best case scenario.

She was 41. He was 32.

They flirted over the Internet. He sent online kisses and declared her "hot." She thanked him for his patience with her.

Jeff Easley moved into Tina Smith's house in Roanoke County, just across Salem's western border, a few months ago, a neighbor said.

I will unfortunately be away from a computer today but will be up in the area near TS and BS's home. I will be glued to the TV just in case any news does come out.

It is sooooo cold here today. Hoping Brittany has a warm coat and the monster sends her home.

I think its very odd that she has a facebook AND myspace with his last name.

I'd sure like to know the explanation behind her MS and FB having HIS last name. Also, the MS picture was slightly unsettling to me. Did anyone else notice her "shirt"?

Alexis Weed, reporter, saying aunt said Easley acted abnormally around Brittany - touching her hair, skin, face.

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.

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Help-Find-Brittany-Mae-Smith-12-years-old-from-VA/112253375509634

I think the picture of what may have happened is becoming very clear... what a sicko he is... :(

Check the FB comments on Brittany's 'missing' page (link above): one posted just a few minutes ago is telling her if she can read the message that JE is using her, etc. I'm beginning to think along those lines and believe that she was groomed - and that she drove one of those vehicles away (someone had to).

Oh dear God... that poor mom and poor child.

I was reading her thread last night and then took a break to catch her story on NG at 11 and zonked on the couch. Just read on FB page...yep, she was in a relationship with this "man".

This sounds so much like the Alicia Debolt case. AD was 14 and her perp was in his 30's. Not a good outcome...he sodomized and killed her and then burned her body. He was brought to the area by a woman with 2 kids thru prison letters (pen pal)!!!!! ARRggggh. Brainless women.

Praying she is safe and prayer to her family and friends.

I'm thinking they may have taken off to Florida. Seems many want to take refuge there and it's the perfect time a year.

She was very "developed" for a 12 yr old ---7th grader and yes, some of the pics are very disturbing. I remember just one girl in my 7th grade class like this and the rest of us girls felt deminished, but the boys went nuts!

I think PIC stands for partner in crime.. anyone know what else PIC can stand for in that sentence?

I think they were calling eachother hcb... :-/
I think you are probably right about pic.

My guess is that hcb stands for hard-core boo. Boo is slang for boyfriend or girlfriend.

Edit: I see above the speculation about handcuff buddy so that may be it.

I really think he was grooming her. If he had seen a pic of Brittany online when starting the relationship with TS, then Brittany may have been his target all along. Sounds like he lavished her with alot of attention (based on photos, comments back/forth online, etc). At some point, it seems as if TS may have gotten jealous of the attention but probably not suspecting anything else. Then whatever happened a few days ago --- I'm thinking she found out that there was more to their relationship and blew a gasket. And it all went downhill from there. I have a hard time believing that JE had brainwashed Brittany enough to go along with her mother's murder, but he probably did convince her that the two of them would be together, be happy, etc. A 12-year-old girl is so vulnerable.

This is so sad...

Hear! Hear! I so agree and have stated this before. I think it would be instrumental in educating...so many parents really don't know what to look for in just trying to keeps their kids safe. Some from poor parenting themselves are clueless to good parenting skills (no fault of their own)
They could ask questions and seek answers in welcomed environment.

One thing that gives me hope is that maybe he is infatuated enough with Brittany not to really harm her. However, at some point, he may realize that she is more noticeable in public than he is alone - and realize that he can't hide forever, he's murdered Tina, and what a story Brittany has to tell - and that's when I get worried for Brittany's life. :(

Starting to wonder if more than one person was involved in this since there were two vehicles missing; i.e. JE's and the mom's TS. I certainly don't think this 12-year-old drove away in her mother's car.

Having the two vehicles involved has me confused. It's odd. Is there a slim chance all three were victims here? I can't figure the scenario(s) with two cars...and the reasoning. Brittany could have driven of the cars tho. I could drive @ 12...taught by my father.

Maybe Brittany was going to have a baby. Mom found out, went into a rage at J, a fight started, he got enraged and killed mom sort of by accident in the knock down drag out fight.

I dont understand the need to move the red car, unless this whole thing was pre planned to make it look at though mom was not home.

12 yr old girls are not the 12 yr old girls of yester-year. When I was 12, I had never heard of eye liner, I was a child. 12 yr olds today are children in adult looking bodies. She may very well not know of her mothers death, he could keep her away from news with no radio, tv, etc access.

By today, they could very well be out of money, and things dont look so rosey to her. I pray she runs. Fun and excitment is all over and she wants to go home. Very dangerous situation if this is true.

Do we have a prayer group here? I am in a prayer group that is all around the world and set by Greenwich GMt. for me is 7p. I dont feel this child is dead. jmo.

Mendara
12-07-2010, 10:58 AM
After reading through this thread it seems this 12 year old girl was living way above reality. I have seen this happen, perhpas the attention and romance of this forbidden relationship was trully blinding this child to reality.

It looks to me that this man was the boyfriend of her mother and that eventually this mother and daughter relationship turned into a competition - somewhere it started to go badly - maybe mom saw her change her name on FB and that is why Brittany said she "messed" up - because now mom was getting suspicious.

I can almost see this getting really bad with a 12 year old who thinks she is sexy and mature and better than her mother - becoming violent when her mother confronts her - maybe Brittany killed her mother and then drove the car to Jeff - he then fled with brittany.

But perhaps when Jeff tries to get physical with Brittany - the REALITY will finally set in and Brittany may realize he is just a fat old guy and it will get dangerous. Because he will not take well to this.

I pray that she at least is safe.

It may also be as frightening as Tina finding them both in bed and Jeff losing control when told to leave the house - he kills Tina and then the REALITY sets in and Brittany is taken by force.

I think however this went down - she is a CHILD and he is a criminal.

At 12 I remember being this way - super romantic - I had a crush on a 25 year old guy - would do anything fo rhis attention and then he kissed me and I felt absolutely AFRAID - so afraid of him after that. I only liked the attention and I didn't realize he was an ADULT MAN and that HIS FANTASIES were NOT about holding my hand and sharing a pizza. His were sexual and that scared me to death when I realized it.

So Brittany may have realized her mistake.

I hope they find her soon. IMO

The same person is saying HCB may be handcuff buddy...

I have an IPhone and could read all of the status updates with comments on all pages, under "Stream."

I read through last night and it made me sick. It was bizarre. Brittany updated her status every day, sometimes twice or three times in one day. A lot of "ily (hbc)" back and forth from her to him. And a lot of "ily" back and forth from the mother and him. :waitasec: Mom alluded to the fact a few times that she felt left out.

IMO, totally my opinion only, I think that mom was snowed for a while and thought the relationship was like a father/daughter. I don't think it was. I think she found out it was something else... either walked in on something or saw something... was told something... or like orb said, maybe she was pregnant...Mom was looking at her daughters statuses constantly because she replied often. They look hinky to us now knowing what happened but they could have been explained away to mom?

This is just awful. Poor mom. :(

This little girl is just 12 years old. 12!

Maybe she meant she wanted her daughter to put her first instead of her friends or him - perhaps it had nothing to do with the creep.

I often tell my son who is 17 that his friends should not be first and his family is more important.

Just a thought - maybe Tina was not jealous of her daughter, but instead worried and wanting her daughter to respect her.

I have an IPhone and could read all of the status updates with comments on all pages, under "Stream."

I read through last night and it made me sick. It was bizarre. Brittany updated her status every day, sometimes twice or three times in one day. A lot of "ily (hbc)" back and forth from her to him. And a lot of "ily" back and forth from the mother and him. :waitasec: Mom alluded to the fact a few times that she felt left out.

IMO, totally my opinion only, I think that mom was snowed for a while and thought the relationship was like a father/daughter. I don't think it was. I think she found out it was something else... either walked in on something or saw something... was told something... or like orb said, maybe she was pregnant...Mom was looking at her daughters statuses constantly because she replied often. They look hinky to us now knowing what happened but they could have been explained away to mom?

This is just awful. Poor mom. :(

This little girl is just 12 years old. 12!

I agree that mom thought it was father/daughter for a little while. She may have changed her name to reflect being his "daughter" when he "married" her mother.

My daughter just turned 13, she doesn't wear make-up unless we have a silly girls make-over night on a weekend or something. I'd blow a gasket if she had a pic like that on her FB! Her dad would probably take her phone/computer away til she turned 18. But, with that said my daughter is kind of immature for her age and gets along better playing with her 8 yr old sister than relating to the tweens & teens at the middle school. I have no problem with that, I prefer she stay innocent as long as possible, the world is a sick place sometimes and really as a parent you have to watch everything and KNOW what your kids are doing 24/7.

I hope this little girl is found alive.

If this relationship is/has taken place, I do not see any love & respect for her mother in the equation. I think this aspect of this case scares me the most because I am really hoping that this young lady wasn't involved.
I pray she makes it home, and I think she will, but when she does she is not going to have to face her mother or brother but the her entire world - turned on its side.

I have finally caught up on this thread. I am praying that BS had nothing to do with her mothers demise but the more I read the more I wonder if she was part of it. The jealous factor comes to mind.
I haven't been able to really surmise what kind of relationship BS had with her mother, wether good or bad except for what is being posted here about the MS comments.

It is very heartbreaking to read the comments mom left on her deceased sons FB page :( alot of pure heartbreak. Seems alot of attention was diverted that way and maybe away from BS....

I can see JE being able to come in and manipulate this situation with the dynamics of the family. Single mom, son recently passed, lonely woman I am sure. He preyed upon this family and got what he wanted imo..... I do hope BS is OK because JE is about to run out of options and realize BS is more of a problem then she is worth due to her age. I mean where can you really go? He will need work for money at some point, she is a liability (BS).

I pray he lets her go safely and moves on ....................

That's what I was trying to say, lol. Thanks. It just wasn't coming out right.

Could be the creep was grooming her. Treating her well...buying her things...siding with her when she and her Mother would disagree. He was only there for a few months? It does sound like BS was his target.

I think it was last night that I was looking at TS's myspace. Thought I saw comments along the lines of 'you made your choice, now you have to live with it'. Can't recall exact words. I thought it was recent. Did she give him the boot, and that's what set him off? Anyone else see those comments? May have been mentioned and I missed it.

ETA: The words were: you chose the wrong option

UPDATED: Police chief says missing girl is still in grave danger; appeals to friends for more information


Smith is believed to be with 32-year-old Jeffrey Scott Easley, a friend of her mothers who she met online this summer. Easley moved into Tina Smith's home in October. Tina Smith was found dead Monday in her home on Fort Lewis Circle. The medical examiner is still conducting the autopsy of Tina Smith. Authorities hope to have a cause of death by Tuesday afternoon.
Easley was last seen in Southeast Roanoke Friday night. Tina Smith and her daughter, Brittany, were seen leaving their home Friday morning, according to Lavinder.
When asked if Brittany Mae Smith was abducted, Roanoke County Police Chief Ray Lavinder answered that they feel confident that she is with Easley. Easley has family in Eastern North Carolina and Alabama. Police are checking in both areas for any information about Easley.

"An autopsy hadn't concluded a cause of death, Lavinder said"

Which would mean there were no obvious signs of trauma. No gun shot, no stab wounds, no blunt force trauma. Have any of the reports stated that she was murdered??? I've only seen reports that state she "was found dead". Wondering what evidence they would have that she was murdered besides common sense.

At a noon press conference, authorities say the suspect, 32-year-old Jeffrey Easley, moved in with Smith and her mother in October.

He started an internet relationship with Brittany's mother Tina Smith over the summer.

Easley has family ties in eastern North Carolina and Alabama.

The amber alert will be extended for an additional 24 hours.

Neither Easley nor Smith have been seen since Friday.

I really believe his intentions could have been Brittany the whole time. I hope this isn't the case I hope she is Okay and doesn't know anything that has happened to her mother and not involved. Just my opinion on everything I've read about he seemed more so interested in Brittany than he did her mother and could have easily brainwashed her and told her many lies and stories. I wonder if Britanny kept a diary also.

The mother and daughter were both in a vulnerable place. Grief wears you down and makes you needy. Clear thinking goes out the window. I have a feeling it was more about a sympathetic ear to the mom rather than a snuggle. Daughter looks like she's trying to grow up too fast. Perhaps the mom was concerned and voiced this to JE and he took advantage. You just never know how these things play out.

Why even hold a press conference if you are going to have one a few short hours later??? :waitasec:


AGAIN, change your name/picture on MS it changes the picture/name for every post she ever made, starting from day 1.

Do we know "who" changed Britanny's name?

I am very aware of that, it will also change your profile picture.

What I mean is that her mother would have access to her actual my space itself. If she was a friend on her my space, obviously she knew about her my space since they talked on there. This wasn't a case of a kid hiding her my space from her mother. Her mother would have seen the comments back and forth between her 12 year old daughter and a 32 year old man, her daughter's pictures, her daughter's name change.

And yes, we know Brittany changed her name on everything. She comments on her status message on October 2nd/3rd I believe, that she did it and it screwed everything up. It's further up in this thread. So unless someone hacked into her account 2 months ago to post that status message and she hadn't changed anything back yet, it was her.

12-07-2010, 01:52 PM
With her bio father being a cop, and having shared custody (did I read that?) I am surprised that he was okay with the presence his 12 year old had online. Not to mention this guy moving in, did he know who he was, did he run a background check on him, did B change her name to Easley really recently online, or did biodad never see that?

I think this guy is a predator through and through, sought out a single mom that was vulnerable to get access to her vulnerable daughter. There is no way I think the ily/hcb and name change online were about a step daddy relationship. It was three months. How many fast living 12 year olds are online professing their love for any parent, let alone a 3 month boyfriend of mom, on their social networking pages. The two just don't fit.

12-07-2010, 01:58 PM
I hate to say this but what I'm thinking is that Friday the girl came home from school, and TS confronted her daughter on her suspicions, it got really bad and BS hit her mother with something a few times, in walks JB and she is freaking out, he hands her his keys and tells her to go (someplace) and he will be there. She leaves, he hits TS a few more times that kills her, gets in TS car shortly after and joins her. They ditch his car, she hops in TS car and she is with him because of fear about hurting her mother. Of course this plays into JB's hand beautifully.
