Just when I though I couldnt get anymore creeped out...I scoped his FB page...IMO the pentagram tattoo is the LEAST of the red flags.

I only see three pics on his FB, one is Aliahna's missing poster....what am I missing?:waitasec:

OOOOOOkaaaayyyy...

So, in my list of stuff we still have to figure out, not including the obvious questions of poor judgement:rolleyes::silenced:


1. Does MP have a former spouse, domestic partner, baby momma, children?

2. Is there any way to sleuth the names of the men allegedly "caught" for the abuse of Aliahna in IA in 2010? (I haven't found one)

3. Is it possible that the dismissed case involving MP as the defendant in November of 2010, and in the same county in IA where the Souders/Lemmon family lived, is in any way related to what happened to Aliahna?

4. If so, was it dismissed because her parents refused to press charges?

5. If not, is there any way to find out the specifics of a case that was dismissed?

6. I now have heard that the surviving children have, in fact, NOT been removed from the home. Is this confirmed? Or is it simply that the rumors of their REMOVAL were never confirmed?

7. Under the law, do the police have to name the parents as either co-conspirators or POI's in order to keep them from skipping town? Are they free to escape jurisdiction? (Although with a case this high profile, it would be hard to really hide this time.)

8. Since LE made a statement confirming that the two other girls had NOT been examined for signs of sexual abuse, can that set both the Sherrif's Dept. and CPS up for a negligence suit brought on the the parents? (oh the effing irony:furious:)

That's all I got for now that can be asked within TOS and the realm of possibility. TIA.

I'm going to work on 3,4 and 5 tomorrow. Love being on vacation. :)

My family is very sentimental, in my possession is 100 years old rocker tahn belonged to my great great uncle who died of diptheria age 20 months.
A framed drawing from school, of another great great uncle who was killed violantly by a drunk driver in 1932 at the age of 9.
My dear grandma made sure we all KNEW them. Kept their memory alive generation after generation.
My grandchildren have my father's WWII, rations, Eisenhower jacket.
Some things are heirlooms and priceless.
Not costly just love for a deceased love one.
How can things just be discarded even before a funeral?

I, too, am the keeper of many of these thing for my family. My father was the only one in his generation interested in genealogy, and the precious (although not monetarily valuable) items that belonged to people in our family. He knew all the stories associated with them and told them to me. As it turns out, I am the only one in my generation who cares to take up where Daddy left off.

That said, when I lost my Mom, I couldn't bear to go through her things right away. We all lovingly packed them up when we sold her condo, and the things that I kept of hers, well it was maybe years before I could bring myself to hold them and look at them.

All this to say, I have since day one NEVER defended victim TS in any of this, but I can sort of see how personal belongings may be hard to see.

Everyone is different.

Doesn't change what I think the 'deal' is, though.

If there is proof of it. Don't worry, if LE finds enough proof for the state to charge them they will be charged. It may take a while but it will happen.

I posted this in the other thread as an example.

Jada Justice, a NW Indiana case. Jada's mother left her with her cousin and cousin's bf who she knew were drug users/dealers. Cousin killed Jada while bf held her down and watched. Then they tried to burn her body. When that didn't work they encased her in cement and threw her is a swamp.
The boyfriend took a plea deal and testified against Jada's killer. She was found guilty and sent off to prison. Jada's mother was then charged with neglect. I bet she didn't see that one coming since 2 years had passed since Jada's death.

http://abclocal.go.com/wls/story?sec...cal&id=8269644

I think in cases like this the key is-did the parent know the "babysitter" was unsafe? Of course so far the relatives of Ali's mother have been singing praises about the alleged perp- how trustworthy they believed he was and how he couldn't hurt any child. And so far it doesn't appear the alleged perp actually was a RSO. If he were then I wouldn't be surprised by neglect charges at all. He was however a convicted felon but I am not sure if that is going to lead to any charges.

Wow, FrayedKnot, great questions. Just wish I had answers.

I can only say that on #2, I found a recent case in the MSM where a 55- year-old father and his 20-year-old son from Centerville, Iowa were sentenced in sexual abuse of two children. The alleged abuse of victim 1 went back many years (although the charges were for crimes committed from 2002-2010, probably because the family only moved to Iowa in 2002). But there were charges involving a second victim, ending in July 2010. The father, Thomas Wood, is serving 80 years in prison. The younger man, Thomas Wood, Jr., just pled guilty in a plea deal to 2 counts of child endangerment relating to Victim 2 and he is now on probation.

O/T

I grew up in a small town in Vermont. When I was 12, (early 70's) I took private clarinet lessons. My parents would drop me off and head to the grocery store. When my lesson was finished, I would walk from the home to Main street and wait for them to pick me up.

One night (it was dark) as I was walking down the hill, a car slowed down and followed me as I walked. Scared me silly. I ran onto a porch of a house that had a light on and waited. The car finally left, and I ran all the way to Main street.

I never told my parents as I thought they would think I was just paranoid. I eventually requested to quit the lessons. They never knew why.

They are both gone now, and I wish I had told them. The whole episode haunts me today.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- Police are trying to determine if a man suspected of killing a Fort Wayne girl could be linked to similar crimes around the country.

Investigators said they are concerned about Michael Plumadore’s past because of his apparent lack of remorse when he described 9-year-old Aliahna Lemmon’s slaying to detectives.

Plumadore was baby-sitting Lemmon and her two younger sisters at a Fort Wayne mobile home park days before she disappeared, RTV6’s Chris Proffitt reported.

I am glad they have the fortitude to look further. He seems to be a transient so very possible there are connections to other crimes.

http://dailyiowegian.com/x528360353/Jury-finds-Centerville-man-guilty-of-five-sexual-abuse-charges

This article details the specific charges as related to two separate victims. Wood, Sr., was convicted of third degree sexual abuse of both victims from July 2009 to July 2010, as well as other charges of abuse of the first victim.

I have no indication that Wood Sr. and Jr. are the two men that DS says abused AL. But the location and the time frame seem to fit.

What a find! It really seemed likely - so I went sleuthing further using your lead, but I don't think it's them. In the article below - it states the charges involved father/son incest with two daughters/sisters, one roughly 12-14yr between 2002-2005 depending on which yrs complaint, and the second under 12y in 2010. Ugh. Those poor girls.

Right, if it turns out MP was abusing Ali and they knew about it they could be found negligent. At this time there is nothing to substantiate that claim, just giving an example of what could happen to TS and/or AS if it comes to light that was the case.

Thanks, Mahoolin. Looks like you're right, there's no connection. The article you cited states both victims are Wood Sr's daughters.

I saw in a link on that article that an 18 year old with the same last name in the same town was guilty of sexual abuse of a child in the last 6 months. Wonder if he's related?

As far as this case goes, I don't see an apparent connection, except for the possibility that there were crimes against other victims that were not charged.

I posed the question about possible other kids in the last thread too, smittles, and I am still confused. I've read contradictory things. Some posts mentioned a 4th child, a younger boy. And JL's obituary looks like TS may be the mother of grandson K. The ages and relationship of the other 2 girls at MP's varies in MSM reports and posts here too.

If there is a MSM link or a clarification in a post here, I'd appreciate it. I've tried to read through all the threads, but with things moving quickly I may not have seen it. Thanks in advance!

Not sure about the number of adult living in home, but this may help with the children in the house. I now believe that the reference to the 6 kid in the household must of been her sisters children. JMO!!:twocents:

I haven't seen anything about another adult living with TS and AS, smittles. That would be interesting, given the explanation that TS was too sick and AS was at work or sleeping to have the 3 girls at home.

This is a bio I found for TS: I am a mother of 3 with a beautiful step daughter. I am now working full time as a computer repair tech at aarons sales & lease after being a stay at home mom for close to six years off and on. My youngest name removed 4yrs starts pre k next year and my 5yr old name removed starts kindergarden along with my step daughter name removed, Aliahna 8yrs will be going into 3rd grade next year. I love my children, my husband, my close friends and family and my life. I wouldn't change a thing.

I just came across an article from North Carolina that states that MP is a registered sex offender:

A man now charged with the unspeakable murder and dismemberment of a 9-year old, girl, has a history in Watauga County. Sheriff Len Hagaman said that Michael Plumadore was in Watauga in 2007 and 2008, and was arrested here as a fugitive from Indiana. The Sheriff said Plumadore was found in what was the “Domestic Violence and Sex Offender Registry Verification” by warrant and sex offender check, and was here November 29th of 2007 to January 22nd 2008.

http://www.goblueridge.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=14218

Has anyone seen this any place else? Perhaps the sheriff was misquoted or not remembering it accurately after several years.

Just remember, it is NOT AWALYS stranger-danger; it could be a scout-leader, daycare teacher, babysitter, uncle, family friend, the friendly neighbor...it is most OFTEN someone the child knows & they have to be taught that as well.

I was late to the bus stop & my son had accepted a ride from a friend of my husband. We read him the riot act...just because we know him...etc. He didn't really understand for a long time, but he never forgot it.

This is off topic to the thread - but I HIGHLY recommend Amazon.com: The Safe Side - Stranger Safety: Hot Tips To Keep Cool Kids Safe With People They Don't Know And Kinda Know: Angela Shelton, John Walsh, Carol Cordova, Kevin Meier, Connor Cordova, Aspen Clark, Sierra Clark, Braxton Thais, Jean Miller (IV), Revital Krawetz, Paul Kessler (III), Elen Costa, Zach Brooks, Elizabeth Decker, Frank Aaron, Alphonso Johnson, Suzanne Guiterrez, Kevin Smith (XXVII), Regina Mocey, Chris Moore (VII): Movies & TV@@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51iafy36B4L.@@AMEPARAM@@51iafy36B4L

It is so well done, it's been two years since my daughter watched it (she's 8) but we still refer to people as "don't knows" and "kinda know" like the video explains. We have a short list of our "know very well."
We have a family password and thanks to an earlier thread we have a phrase that if she ever says it I'll come running. Although she said so sweetly "mom, I'll just tell you straight out if I need you to come get me."
Short of my older brother (and if my dad were still alive he would be on the list) I don't think there's any man that I would let her stay with -without a wife present in the home.

It's mind boggling though that this case is not about stranger danger -

When my DD was old enough to babysit, she was the only one in our subdivision who was. She kept her schedule on the calendar next to the phone and also a list of her "customers" phone numbers. I was always home when she sat. One evening I got home from work, she already had plans made way ahead to attend a bday party. My son said he was going to make some money, he was to babysit three little girls because she was not home. Oh no, you are not - and it was very close to the time the mother was to leave. I called her and said she would have to bring the kids to my house. She thought I was silly but did bring them, son had to color with them, watch cartoons with them, but I was here and watched them too. From then on he was instructed why he was not to accept any more babysitting jobs - he made his money by doing yard work. Of course he thought my protecting him was silly but now that he is grown, glad I did. Protecting our kids covers everything in their lives.

This may have been addressed earlier, but doesn't it seem odd that MP would beat the child to death on THE FRONT STEPS of his trailer? I could see if it was in the woods, or in a deserted alley, but on his front steps? Even if it was the middle of the night, there was a chance that someone would be up and looking out their window, or walking the dog, or something. The mom herself could easily have walked out and seen that.

Has anyone looked at the layout of the front, versus the other trailers? It would have to be a unique situation to make that even slightly reasonable. (Or as reasonable as killing this child could ever be.)

Thanks for your story, I totally understand you.

I think it's just sad our society is like that; that boys can't babysit, that Dads can't show affection for their child without someone looking at them "sideways". I understand why it is like that, but I don't like it!! We have become a very suspious society.... with good cause. But; where is it going to end?

BTW: My mother's husband was molested on many occasions when he was a 6 -8 years old. When he told the story, I took for granted it was a man who had raped him, but it was his female babysitter.

My mother's husband is 60 now and the woman who did that to him is still alive. She's like 85. I shrug when I think of other kids she has abused... and right now she just looks like a nice, old grandma. Yuck.

Ok, back to the case.....

Asked my Army retired hubby about this and he helped me find some links on this.

If the grandfather WAS receiving VA benefits - and then became a felon - his benefits would be lowered WHILE INCARCERATED (do we know if he served any time?) -- however - it also appears that his benefits can be apportioned.

All or part of the compensation not paid to an incarcerated veteran may be apportioned to the veteran's spouse, child or children, and dependent parents on the basis of individual need. In determining individual need, consideration shall be given to such factors as the claimant's income and living expenses, the amount of compensation available to be apportioned, the needs and living expenses of other claimants as well as any special needs, if any, of all claimants.

I don't know the address that they lived in in Hagerstown MD, but I did a RSO search based on the school that Aliahna attended and there about 35-40 child offenders in a mile radius. But here's the thing - they are clustered into two areas. Each cluster is a few blocks. It sounds suspiciously like a trailer park with 15 out of 22 trailers having RSO's in them. Does anyone know the address or street that they lived on in Hagerstown?

Since Aliahna had been sexually molested at least twice before, in Iowa, I wonder if this family gravitated towards these kinds of areas?

Some call it poverty, and I've spent my whole life surrounded by it. I grew up in it, most of my siblings grew up in it and are living their lives now the same way they lived their lives when they were younger. No drive, no ambition, just, as others have said, survival.

The kids are usually fed, but fed well? Not so much. Instead of cooking, they buy prepackaged crap with food stamps, because it's easier and doesn't require too much clean up afterwards. Most of the time, it's convenience foods that the kids can microwave themselves. The heat might get shut off, or the car might not have gas to get the kids from school, but the internet always stays on. half the time you can't call because the cell phone ran out of minutes, and you simply have to wait until they switch to a company they don't owe, or they find a way to put more time on the phone.

The houses are usually dirty, and I see a lot of hoarding, they won't throw anything away, because they might need them later. Even the broken toys, and the outgrown clothes, everything mixed together, so the kids don't have anything nice to play with, and half the time, their clothes don't fit right, or anywhere near right. Coats and boots are usually not bought, so they wear the same jacket whether it's 50 degrees or -5, and the same tennis shoes year round.

I don't see that much abuse, but neglect is rampant. I can't tell you how many times I've asked after one of my nieces or nephews and been told, "Oh I don't know, it's so hard to keep track of that kid." Meaning that as long as they can call and be told the kid is fine or see them at some point between waking up or going back to sleep, they just assume the kid is okay. There's no checking of friends or babysitters, the kids simply go wherever their care is cheapest. There's no talking to them unless they do something wrong or the parent needs something.

The houses themselves are usually roach ridden all year, and flea ridden in the summer. Half the time the heater doesn't work and the other half of the time the air conditioner doesn't work. If they can pack three bunk beds in a room, they'll have six kids in the same room, or a couple kids sleep on couches or floors. The kids usually have to dodge broken windows, and broken down furniture, as well as everything else that the parents have the ability to fix, but not the drive. My sister and her four kids all lived in a 600 square foot travel trailer at one point. I have literally seen it all.

It's sickening, but it's life for a decent percentage of the country, and it doesn't matter what part.

This is so true, all of it.
BEM: And the other percentage can't imagine that this goes on - so it's hard to understand and easier to live in denial. Entitlements were not even mentioned, yet I know not_my_kids will agree, getting a check or assistance for each and every child is not much motivation to change. The neglect (which is abuse), gets passed from generation to generation until the abusers are baffled at the blame heaped on them when something this horrific happens to them, it's just how it is.

For those following my posts with regards to MP being arrested in NC back in 2007, and the article stating:

Accused Child Murderer Once Lived in Boone
Sheriff Len Hagaman said that Michael Plumadore was in Watauga and registered as a sex offender on November 29th of 2007 when found by a sex offender check, and found him to be a fugitive from Indiana at that time.

Original article is not online anymore and the update is clearly worded differently.
http://www.goblueridge.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=14218

So for now, this is the latest that I have from Steve as of:
Thursday, December 29, 2011 1:18 PM

Hi Patty...

I've been called out of town on a family emergency, and have had limited communication. At a distance, I'm trying to find out if the former address for the shelter home he was living in had such a designation at one time, causing the confusion. But they've moved and most everyone I try to find is on some sort of limited schedule for the holiday week. I'm still trying, though.

Steve

I will continue to have contact with Steve, and won't give up until "goblueridge" clarifies what "globlueridge" wrote claiming what the Sheriff stated.

My goal for 2012 is to question the media every time I read something that just doesn't make sense. I am just so tired of stuff being put into articles and they have nothing to back up their statements, especially in this particular situation.

I understand that Detroit usually gets a bad rap, but there are some very nice areas of Detroit as well. Although I was born and raised in western Michigan, I am very familiar with metro Detroit. Personally, I find Flint, Michigan to be a scarier place in general than Detroit, and Flint has its nice areas as well. Also, some of the suburbs of Detroit are amongst the most affluent in the nation. Places like Plymouth, Northville, Bloomfield Hills, etc. come readily to mind. I couldn't help but respond; it is the second time that you mentioned Detroit. Just my perspective....

O/T: 25 year long Flint resident. And you are correct, I often forget to lock my doors driving through Detroit, but I never forget when I'm at home. Flint alone has 650 RSO's now, just within the borders of the city. We are a "safe haven" for them, I suppose. Flint is scary. Flint is why my five year old knows to lie down flat and cover his head when he hears "fireworks". Flint is why my kids have been taught to use code words, how to vomit and urinate on themselves at will if someone picks them up, why they know how to scream every obscenity ever created if someone tries to walk off with them, and it's why we have to play "Lockdown" here at home, a game where they have learned how to lock every door in the house, run to their rooms and hide under the blankets in their closet.

There are no nice areas left in Flint. I'm one of those that is financially stuck. Our house won't sell, it's in Flint, and well over a hundred years old. But I suppose the good thing is that my kids know how to fight, how to scream, when to tell, who to tell...My children are young, so I have to somehow present all this in ways that doesn't scare them too much. There is healthy fear, and the only upside to a place like this is that they learn it almost through osmosis.

Very good post not-with-my-kids!

The benefits don't help, but for the problems relating to the kids, neither are the options to limit the benefits. The state will put a cap on how long you can recieve welfare, like they did here in MI, and when the parents hit that cap, they move on to another state, where they continue their lifestyle with a whole new group of possibly dangerous people. Once again, something needs to change, but it's almost impossible to change the system in a way that it will change someone's lifestyle. It's baffling to me how someone can put the time, energy, and money into moving every couple years to stay ahead of the benefits, but can't put half of that into finding a job or improving themselves. Baffling.

In Ali's case, I see inconsistency. Another hallmark of families like these. Sometimes the family will have a steady income, mom or dad is making money, and there are extras. Clothes get bought, the car is running, sometimes the house is even clean. But it never lasts more than a few months. For a few days at a time, the parents cook dinner and then it's back to microwave slop or nothing at all. I only say this because from the outside, Ali's family looks so much like the people I grew up with. Constant moves, constant streams of people in and out of the house, questionable friends that no one seems to question, odd living arrangements.

And yes, when something happens to a child that has been put in this situation, the family is just as grief stricken and just as shocked as say, the Dugards, or the Smarts, or the Hagerman's. I think that in many cases, the adults in homes like this are just so numb to everything, due to the poverty and the pain they have lived with daily that they are also numb to danger, unless the danger is literally in their face, threatening them face to face in an active way, otherwise they don't see it.

If I had a nickel for every instance of child abuse or molestation that I know has personally happened because of this particular lifestyle, I could retire yesterday.

When my DD was old enough to babysit, she was the only one in our subdivision who was. She kept her schedule on the calendar next to the phone and also a list of her "customers" phone numbers. I was always home when she sat. One evening I got home from work, she already had plans made way ahead to attend a bday party. My son said he was going to make some money, he was to babysit three little girls because she was not home. Oh no, you are not - and it was very close to the time the mother was to leave. I called her and said she would have to bring the kids to my house. She thought I was silly but did bring them, son had to color with them, watch cartoons with them, but I was here and watched them too. From then on he was instructed why he was not to accept any more babysitting jobs - he made his money by doing yard work. Of course he thought my protecting him was silly but now that he is grown, glad I did. Protecting our kids covers everything in their lives.

My mother was the SAME way with my brothers. She didn't actually have a reason to worry, but used to say that she did not want one, either. As mothers (and fathers) we have to keep our eyes open...at all times! I am very paranoid when it comes to my 3-year-old daughter....:heartluv:

And did mom send the dress with her for the "week" babysitting jaunt? Think about it. You're realllyyyy sick and think you need to send your kids away for "a few days -- whatever". But do you think "I better send this dress with her" because she has a birthday party to go to at the end of the week! So close to Christmas.

I have a feeling that dress is the only dressy outfit she had. And I'm not slamming here, it's sometimes just a side effect of big families. Ali was the oldest girl, as far as I know, and sometimes that just happens. My oldest son's clothes are handed down as soon as he outgrows them, and when he hits a growth spurt, his little brother is set for clothes, but he will end up with like three shirts and two pairs of pants, until I get to the store to buy him a few more.

Maybe MP was a stickler about the girls always looking nice, I've seen that with some molesters...my father would put all of his daughter's in dresses all the time. He was adamant that the girls always "take care of themselves" and "look nice" even when we were very young. Just my thoughts on why she sent the dress, even though it seemed unnecessary.

Or possibly, it was just Ali's favorite outfit. Or maybe the kids were quite used to spending a week or so with Uncle Mike and grandpa, and were pros at packing their own bags for the stay, and Ali packed it herself.

ETA: I don't have the link, but I think I read in an article that all of Ali's gifts were left under the tree...of course that was before her mother decided that reminders of Ali were "too painful" and sent all her stuff to storage. I doubt they are still under the tree.

MP lived two doors down, any clothing they wanted they could have gone and got any time, there was no need to pack for a week imo. But maybe she wore the dress all the time.

I always thought that the birthday party was supposed to be on Friday when she was reported missing but I could be wrong. I don't think it's been clarified for whom and when and where it was supposed to be. After 8 pm is kinda late imo to begin thinking about going to a children's party. Everything my kids have been invited to started 6 pm at the latest. Was it a children's party or something for mostly adults?

Agree 100%. If they have the only suspect or the only perpetrator in custody, the police will usually come right out and say that, because it calms and comforts the community. It also cuts down on the instances of "I think there's someone in my back yard" calls, if the people feel safer again.

Maybe not. The had to charge him today .. so they charged him with what they knew they had and could hold him on.

IF there is child porn, and IF they can link other folks to it ... I would think they aren't showing their hand right now so that they can thoroughly investigate and cast one big net, IYKWIM...

This is off topic to the thread - but I HIGHLY recommend Amazon.com: The Safe Side - Stranger Safety: Hot Tips To Keep Cool Kids Safe With People They Don't Know And Kinda Know: Angela Shelton, John Walsh, Carol Cordova, Kevin Meier, Connor Cordova, Aspen Clark, Sierra Clark, Braxton Thais, Jean Miller (IV), Revital Krawetz, Paul Kessler (III), Elen Costa, Zach Brooks, Elizabeth Decker, Frank Aaron, Alphonso Johnson, Suzanne Guiterrez, Kevin Smith (XXVII), Regina Mocey, Chris Moore (VII): Movies & TV (http://www.amazon.com/Safe-Side-Stranger-Safety-People/dp/B0009LS9Y4)

It is so well done, it's been two years since my daughter watched it (she's 8) but we still refer to people as "don't knows" and "kinda know" like the video explains. We have a short list of our "know very well."
We have a family password and thanks to an earlier thread we have a phrase that if she ever says it I'll come running. Although she said so sweetly "mom, I'll just tell you straight out if I need you to come get me."
Short of my older brother (and if my dad were still alive he would be on the list) I don't think there's any man that I would let her stay with -without a wife present in the home.

It's mind boggling though that this case is not about stranger danger -

My kids said the same thing, but they are still young.. the secret phrase is to hep them save face around friends when they get older, and need me to get them..they know i'll call and tell the other kids and parents that there is a family emergency.. the phrase isn't just for a case of someone touching them wrong.. but also in the case of drugs or alcohol at a party, anything that might come up....

According to the Prosecutor’s Office, under Indiana law, Plumadore could face 45 to 60 years for the murder charge and another six months to three years for each of the other two offenses.

45-60 years only? No automatic life sentence for murder?

What kind of response when finding out your GOD DAUGHTER is found dead, May she rest in Peace with Grandfather and angels. Uhm, he was a convicted child molester! Then when I have read that she had on dress that she wore to grandfathers funeral on the last time she was seen and Aliahna wanted to sleep in Grandfather's chair that he was in. I'm getting SICK to my stomache! This is what's NORM to these families?

Ugh, how can they even mention that nasty A** chair as if it's a good thing. I wouldn't touch that thing with a ten foot pole let alone let a child sleep in it. I admit I am phobic about dirt and germs, but good lord! These people treat it like a shrine. MP has his picture taken with it. It's nothing but a nasty dirty chair that belonged to a pedo.

Sorry for the rant. :)

I missed the part that Ali was suppose to go to a birthday party. Where can I read this information? TIA

It was discussed in the first thread for Aliahna. I'm not sure if there's been MSM confirmation and a lot of stories that have been on MSM have been lies anyway. But supposedly MP said the other girls had seen Aliahna walk out the door and said that she was going to a birthday party. There were some comments in Facebook and in a news article from someone who identified themselves as Ali's next door neighbor that seemed to confirm there was a party. See this post:
Found Deceased IN - Aliahna Maroney Lemmon, 9, Fort Wayne, 23 Dec 2011 - Page 2 - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community


But I suppose it could be just rumors or a troll or the whole birthday angle could be an intentional crock put forth by the responsible parties.

Would Ali's next door neighbor be a RSO?

If MP sexually assaulted Aliahna, would he also be charged with this additionally (a separate charge) or is it included in the murder charge?

I am pretty sure it would be a separate charge. But they would have to have evidence of it to charge him. And we know the body was chopped up so I am not sure how much evidence of what went on before the murder is available.

I agree. They say he died in the chair and while a child might not know what may happen to a body when it dies adults should know. The stains on that chair ewww. I cant even wrap my brain around it. And these people are not well off enough to have had it cleaned. I gagged when I read she wanted to sleep on the chair her grandfather died in.

JMO but she might easily not have wanted to sleep in that chair. I think there is a good chance that MP said she wanted to sleep in it merely because he could prop a body pillow and a blanket in that chair so it looked a bit like a sleeping child if you weren't looking too closely. Allegedly she was really in the freezer by the time she was supposedly sleeping in the chair.

If she really wanted to sleep in the chair it was probably not due to any emotional attachment to that chair but because she was afraid MP would come next to her if she slept on the floor.

Good point that she never did sleep in that chair that night, according to the timeline, so the whole thing is a fabrication.

And if it were EVER true that she liked to sleep in that chair it is VERY likely to have been an attempt to discourage MP.

Been wondering if mom could have MS - don't they have flare-ups and sometimes take strong infusions of steroids to get back to their prior level of functioning? I knew a lady once who could walk sometimes really well, and others not at all.

Thinking back to the pic of mom with g-mom on the couch and mom has coat on just her arms - wonder if that was covering up an IV or something?

I'm a firm believer in people's privacy concerning their health, but in cases like this, it's hard not to be suspicious. It could be nothing - I think I'd need if not a wheelchair at least a very strong pair of arms to help support me at a devastating time like this. I think for suspicion to be diverted from mom though, it'd be in her best interest to explain - IMHOO

I hope they move out of that horrible place, but IMO, it's much too soon for so much activity around the house. I do hope LE "has someone" on the house and the storage unit for comings and goings. Could fill in some missing pieces about this whole strange situation.

Did we ever hear if all the children are still there, or are there current pics or video of them at the house?

I thought the coat she was holding was Aliahna's; blue plaid with fur trimmed hood. As for MS, the two women I know who have it are in the gym everyday to fight it, one woman is in her 60s. TS doesn't look like a gym person. IMHO

IIRC, the initial reports were that the girls, all three, were to attend a party Friday EVENING. MP said that the two sisters told him that while he was out buying the cigar (at 6 am), Aliahna put on her coat and left, saying she was going to the party.

We now know she was already dead, but it seems like a really stupid lie on MP's part. Like the little sisters wouldn't have wigged out that Aliahna was leaving for the party more than 12 hours early? Why that lie?:waitasec:

In any case, I think the mom was to have (or maybe did) show up to pick all three girls up for the party Friday evening.

Of course a kids' party that late seems hinky, IMHO.

I thought, too, that the coat she had on her arms was EXACTLY like the one described as the one Aliahna was wearing when she 'walked out of the trailer'. My first thought was that police had recovered her little coat abandoned outside somewhere and had given it to the mother, and that she was holding it for comfort. Of course we now know how much comfort Aliahna's belongings give her. :furious:

Add more questions to the list:

Were Aliahna's clothes/coat/pajamas ever recovered?

Do we have a confirmed MSM report as to what MP(lied and) said she was wearing when she 'left'?

Was MP foolish enough to leave in a heap by Gpa's chair the very clothes he said she had on when she went missing? Did LE find them and KNOW something was amiss right away?

Was the clothing description on the missing poster from mom? Or did LE compile it based on MP's statement?

If it was from mom, how would she KNOW what Aliahna was wearing as she hadn't seen her since Tuesday?

Not to minimize animal cruelty, but Michael Vick served 23 months.

How long did good ol' Shorty get? 10 years, minus 4 of those as probation. He was sentenced in March of 2006, restitution served in full, and probation completed in July of 2011. So about 18 months in prison?

He never should have seen the light of day IMO. He was molesting for YEARS. We are all disgusted by the actions/inactions of people in Aliahna's life but if her grandfather was never released and died in prison, chances are Aliahna had a chance although I'm not completely sure about that either.

A TOUGH new law inspired by the murder and dismemberment of 10-year-old disabled Australian schoolgirl Zahra Baker has come into effect in North Carolina.

Moving grandpa's trailer is a pretty good idea. No one can tamper with it or burn it down like Shawn Morgan's home that was just burned, along with his brother's home a couple of weeks ago. He's charged with Breeann Rodriquez's murder. He killed her in his home.

I remember in Zahra's case that it wasn't much of a penalty either. I'm shocked because it's a horrible crime and deserves way more than 3 years max. It seems we are hearing more and more about dismembering of bodies. Give them harsher penalties.

No one seems to have a clear idea what Aliahna's law should consist of so the article is no big deal but there is an interesting comment from someone who says they looked at a couple of places in the trailer park and were never informed that it's a pedophile haven. She also says that they've removed all laundry hookups so that everyone must go to a single laundry facility to wash their clothes (and to have some cosy RSO chat).

I thought MP washed his laundry at Tulley and Shumaker's?

Northway resident Mike Tulley agreed Plumadore and the girl's grandfather had built up a sturdy rapport. Tulley said he witnessed that healthy relationship when James Lemmon and Plumadore would sometimes do laundry in Tulley's trailer together.
http://www.journalgazette.net/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20111227/LOCAL07/111229617

They said the only unusual change in Plumadore's behavior was an increase in laundry. Shumaker said they washed his laundry for him, but on Friday he showed up with an extra load. Otherwise, he seemed fine.

Yikes, is their common laundry facility located at a trailer with two RSO residents?

--yet another place LE can check out while figuring out this monster's background.

--snipped from above article--

The man accused of clubbing a 9-year-old Indiana girl to death is a former Cleveland County resident and has a criminal history here.
Michael Len Plumadore, 39, lived in Grover and Kings Mountain during the early and mid-1990s, according to court documents.

On March 10, 1992, Plumadore was found guilty of causing injury to personal property and being intoxicated and disruptive. He was ordered to pay $150 for damages to a Kings Mountain Police car, Cleveland County court records state.

At the time of the charges, Plumadore had a listed address on the 900 block of Second Street in Kings Mountain. He lived on the 100 block of Ben Davis Road, Grover, when he faced three simple assault charges in 1996.

Why 14 Sex Offenders Live Where Aliahna Died
--snipped---

Many people were shocked to hear that 14 registered sex offenders live in the mobile home park where 9-year-old Aliahna was brutally murdered.

The high concentration is due to an Indiana law commonly called the 1,000 foot rule. The legislation requires sex offenders on the state's registry to live at least 1,000 feet away from schools, youth centers, and public parks.

Detective Cpl. Mike Smothermon with the Allen County Sheriff's Department says that naturally leads to a clustering of sex offenders in other residential areas.

Therefore, when an affordable residential area is found that meets all the requirements, sex offenders tend to cluster there. Sometimes they even live with one another as roommates to lower the cost.

Of the 14 registered sex offenders in the area, most of them are charged with incidents involving children, such as child molestation, sexual misconduct with a minor, or child pornography.

Okay, I lied. I will say one more thing...if they placed both sisters into protective custody, that means that for whatever reason, they must not consider the stepfather/father able to provide them with suitable protection or care, either.

Hm...

It's a nice thought, but if he cannot afford to attend his daughters funeral without donations, he cannot afford to raise a child. She needs to be placed with a family member who has the time and money to get her the large amount of aftercare she's going to need, only god knows what has been done to her in her short little life :( :(

About the dress. I understand she was supposed to go to a birthday party. Was it the day she was reported missing? Didn't anyone notice she wasn't there prior to the 8 or so PM call? I wonder about the other sisters and if they were invited too.

And did mom send the dress with her for the "week" babysitting jaunt? Think about it. You're realllyyyy sick and think you need to send your kids away for "a few days -- whatever". But do you think "I better send this dress with her" because she has a birthday party to go to at the end of the week! So close to Christmas.

What - were these little girls gonna move in with him permanently? Was mommy even expecting them back for Christmas? Any gifts under the tree?

I'm so baffled at all this nonsense!!

The children that come from these family situations are very resourcful. I'm sure she packed her own clothing, as well as her sisters'!!

Aliahna's biological father is the one who traveled from Iowa with monetary assistance to attend his daughter's funeral; he is not the biological father of Aliahna's half-sister. The man I am referring to lives in Fort Wayne, and apparently considers Aliahna as his daughter.

I have a feeling that dress is the only dressy outfit she had.

snipped for space

I got a kick out of Nancy Grace acting shocked that the child was asleep in her clothing and coat. She also found it hard to believe the children were sleeping on the floor. This is the norm...They probably wore their cloths until they could walk away on their own! They normally have no schedule, therefore they just drop where ever they are when they become tired. These kids could probably sleep thru a tornado. They are use to fighting, parties, and people in and out of their home at all hours of the day and night!

I had an acquaintance that lived in a roach infested apt. There were roaches in her babies diaper. They would crawl into his ears at night while sleeping in his crib. I helped her do a deep cleaning, at my suggestion...there were roaches in her blender and behind her medicine cabinet. It was normal to her!:banghead:

Only his official hearing was pushed to next week. They said yesterday that he would still be formally charged today and have those charges read to him at the jail. He just won't be brought into court to stand for those charges until next week.

Personally, I think they pushed the hearing back due to the need for increased security. They need time to secure him, his route, and all areas of the court. MOO.

A girl with the same mother and a different father wouldn't be a stepsister.
The stepfather's daughter was Aliahna's stepsister.

I'm sorry, but I can't agree with you on that. Every family member we've heard from sings MP's praises, at least before he confessed. Not a single member of that multi generational dysfunctional family is fit to care for either girl. I'm not sure about the bio fathers (still can't figure out which girl belongs to which bio dad), but "mommy" & "grammy" are either totally blind, just don't give a crap, or they were in on all the abuse the whole time!

Hopefully they will be permanently placed with a loving family that doesn't intentionally subject them to abuse.

Thank you for the link. Well, I suppose this puts to rest any doubt that MP was a sexual predator of young girls? When I first saw the photos on his Facebook of the girl aged 10-13 years, I had a very bad feeling. This was before the news came out that Aliahna had been found and the sicko arrested. I thought perhaps Aliahna was being groomed as a replacement for the other girl. This whole thing is so very sick and disgusting....

OK, maybe I am dense, but I can't quite get my head around all of this... didn't Aliahna live in Iowa last year? Where she was sexually molested by two men? And, didn't one of the neighbors in Indiana say that Aliahna's mother met MP in Indiana at the trailer park, (implied) THIS year (or whenever she move to the TP)?

So, what are the chances that this child killer (who is likely a child stalker, at least) lived in the same place, at the same time as his future victim, but didn't know her?

Am I missing something? Does anyone have any kind of timeline for these people? (Not to mention a family relationship map!)

This is way too confusing, and is making me imagine all kinds of scenarios of pedophile rings and steady supplies of victims. Sorry if this has all been discussed - I have been trying hard to catch/keep up.

Yes, I read in a comment on an article posted by a lady who thought about renting in this trailer park. She stated that one of the reasons she decided not to rent there is that management had taken all the washers and dryers out of the trailers and there was a common laundry area where they charged for laundry. As if moving into a neighborhood known as pedophile park wasn't bad enough, she had small children and said the common laundry place would force her kids/family to have possible contact with the RSO's while she was doing laundry. She (thankfully!) decided not to rent there!

There may not be such a family member. It is possible that he and his woman/wife are just living paycheck to paycheck and the cost of a plane ticket was prohibitive. When my brother in law was murdered, it was over $1k per ticket for us to get to where he was; you apply to get a partial refund after the fact but it is expensive to fly from specific point A to specific point B on a moment's/day's notice.

I guess they might have to wait and investigate all the pertinent facts about the children's family situation before they decide who ends up where, and we might or might not find out about it. I was just saying that LM's daughter is not Aliahna's stepsister, which we seem to agree about.

O.M.G. Lived with her father. SICK.SICK.SICK. I just knew something wasn't right with all those questionable FB friends of his. So sick.

This is really making me nervous. I mean, who would sexually stalk the daughter of your roommate? The men I know would literally beat the living tar out of a guy who tried anything like that. But, as we are seeing, these pedo's don't have that same protective streak. So, I guess the next question would be to find out if the 13-yo victim's dad is also a RSO?

I am definitely getting the feeling that there is a loose-knit "community" of these people, spread out all over the place, and that thought is actually rather terrifying.

Ali's bio dad also lives in Centerville, Iowa.

Somehow, MP ends up living in Fort Wayne - in a trailer right next to Ali's bio dad's exwife?

Fort Wayne, IN is over 8 hours away from Centerville, Iowa.

This too much of a coincidence. There is now way that MP "coincidentally" ended up living in a trailer right next to Ali's bio dad's exwife.

Could there be a connection between MP and Ali's bio dad that existed PRIOR to him befriending Ali's mother?

Plumadore is expected to appear in court again next week, probably Tuesday or Wednesday. Some sources indicated Aliahna's sisters had been placed in protective custody, but that could not be officially confirmed. McAlexander would not rule out the possibility that others could also be charged in connection with her death.

Sisters of slain 9-year-old are in protective custody

Thank goodness.

The man who allegedly killed and dismembered a 9-year-old Fort Wayne girl was accused of stalking and sexually harassing a 13-year-old girl while living in Iowa last year, but the complaint against him was dismissed, according to court documents.

A Centerville, Iowa, woman asked for a protective order against Michael L. Plumadore in November 2010 to keep him away from her daughter, according to the documents and an official with the Appanoose County clerk of court's office.
http://www.news-sentinel.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20111230/BREAKING/111239951

I guess we could all see that one coming.

I sure did. No way was this guy NOT a molester.

I don't understand it either. Why was it dismissed? It says because the woman's relationship with Plumadore didn't meet the requirements? What requirements and why did it matter, considering the daughter was 13. What in the world does mother's relationship with Plumadore had to do with the alleged crimes against 13 years old?

A protective order requires that the two people be related by blood or marriage, or that they share a child together. It can sometimes be ordered if people live together, but not always.

ETA: Some states do allow orders against stalkers as well, but I am not sure id Ia. does or not, or what their requirements are.

So here's how it goes. You can get a domestic violence protective order against family or someone in a romantic relationship with you (or your kid). Otherwise, you need to get a civil harassment order which is different paperwork. That's how it works in most states although the terminology may be different in different states.

So the child's mother needed to file different paperwork and likely did not.

My question is why didn't the police go after him. It's stalking of a minor. Surely that's a crime there?

Now that the girls have been removed, and the state is their guardian, there will be no extra consent needed. If the state wants an exam, test or interview done, they have the power to allow that. TS is out of it now, and so is the stepfather. Not saying they won't get them back, but right now, they have no say.

Ahh... so if Ali and her mother lived in Iowa, her mother might have made the connection with MP when she lived in Iowa. Gotcha.

It's confusing because I thought the MSM reported that she met MP at the trailer park in Fort Wayne. They went on and on how MP was her father's caregiver first - THEN became babysitter to the girls, etc.

I also recall reading that she had even inquired about MP and another guy, as she knew the park has RSOs. I assumed she met MP in Fort Wayne.

Either way, MP was doing bad things in Iowa and Indiana. Where else, pray tell?

When I learned about CPS regs., I was amazed to find out that they normally only take the child who was involved in whatever the situation was, and leave the others. And, sometimes they will get back some of the kids, but not all of them, as well. Of course, if the situation is something like a dangerous environment, they will remove all (ie: maybe why the trailer was "cleaned" yesterday). But if one child is physically abused, CPS may remove only that child and leave the rest.

I don't think most people know that. And, it is very frustrating to see that. In my area our courts may remove all of the children, and if the mother has another baby, she keeps it - even if she is unfit for her other 6 kids. Luckily our judges are very involved, but I can see that in a larger jurisdiction it could be very difficult!

LE really needs to check out any possible connection between MP and the cases in which the perp left writing on the barn door and notes and photos for the girls. (Can't recall the names connected with those cases off the top of my head.)

What struck me is, the notes left by the unknown perp began with "Hi, Honey...."

In MP's interview with the journalist before Ali's remains had been found, he was describing his conversation with Ali, and when he was relating what he said to her the night she supposedly had nightmares, he began the quote with..."Honey...."

Add to that MP sent threatening messages AND photos of himself??? This is exactly what the unknown perp in the other cases did.

Possibilities make my hair stand on end.

IMO it's possible that it was like we were told because his acquaintance with the Lemmons predates his living in Centerville. Supposing Mr. Shumaker told the truth about introducing his old prison pal Shorty and Plumadore about four years ago MP would have gotten to know Tarah and her children and he could have learned to know the biodad and lots of people they are acquainted through Tarah. Did TS ever live near Centerville? Did Aliahna ever stay with biodad for longer periods of time? It could have been his attraction to Centerville if TS's family hasn't lived near there.

THANK YOU! That helps a bit, anyway.

But, unfortunately it only strengthens my suspicions that there is some kind of really nefarious connection between these people. There are far too many pedos involved in these connections. I have never, personally, known a single person who is a RSO. Not one. As far as I know, I have never even lived in a neighborhood with one (I have checked the registries every time I have moved, since they started offering the lists online.) I understand that I am fortunate to be financially comfortable, but we all know that sex offenders cross every SES line.

So, how is it possible that there are SO MANY in the lives of this family? From Maryland to Iowa to Indiana, they have been surrounded by, or at least in close proximity to multiple offenders. At least one child (Aliahna) was repeatedly molested before. Why wasn't the very first, and most important consideration to stay away from child predators when they moved? I mean the NUMBER ONE priority?

snipped for space

I got a kick out of Nancy Grace acting shocked that the child was asleep in her clothing and coat. She also found it hard to believe the children were sleeping on the floor. This is the norm...They probably wore their cloths until they could walk away on their own! They normally have no schedule, therefore they just drop where ever they are when they become tired. These kids could probably sleep thru a tornado. They are use to fighting, parties, and people in and out of their home at all hours of the day and night!

I had an acquaintance that lived in a roach infested apt. There were roaches in her babies diaper. They would crawl into his ears at night while sleeping in his crib. I helped her do a deep cleaning, at my suggestion...there were roaches in her blender and behind her medicine cabinet. It was normal to her!:banghead:

I disagree that sleeping in clothes and coats is the norm. It may be the norm for this particular family- But the higher percentage of children in the US sleep in their beds. Thankgoodness.

I agree with you. Sometimes it is hard to come up with a large amount of money - thanks to compassionate LE where he lives he will be able to attend is daughter's funeral.

Unfortunately, Aliahna's bio dad's day to day finances are a moot point. He won't have an opportunity to raise her.

If she had been with him and his new wife, she would still be alive. I believe his heart must be broken into many, many little pieces knowing this.

12-30-2011, 05:14 PM
My opinion about biodad seeking donations to go to the funeral is that I doubt it will cost very much and he doesn't seem to be well off by any means - and he probably doesn't have a buffer saved up for something like this.

To me, it's still strange that family and friends can't rally and collect enough cash for him and that he has to ask the public, but that's just me.

Anyway, he deserves to be at his daughter's funeral. Even if he wasn't consistent in her life.

I disagree that sleeping in clothes and coats is the norm. It may be the norm for this particular family- But the higher percentage of children in the US sleep in their beds. Thankgoodness.
(I know there are homeless families that have to sleep in their clothes.)

I thing that the original poster was referring to this "kind" of family. There are several people on this board who are familiar with what seems to be a stereotypical family of irresponsible, substance abusing, poverty-ridden, people who have similar characteristics. I think she meant that this "flopping" behavior is typical in those kinds of homes.

Of course MOST children are given, at minimum, a bed to sleep in, clothes to wear and space/personal belongings of their own - no matter how poor they are.

Yes, I still have the feeling Ali kept her clothes and coat on as a guard tactic, and to feel more secure. Coat + clothes = more barriers of protection, dressed for fight or flight.

My opinion about biodad seeking donations to go to the funeral is that I doubt it will cost very much and he doesn't seem to be well off by any means - and he probably doesn't have a buffer saved up for something like this.

To me, it's still strange that family and friends can't rally and collect enough cash for him and that he has to ask the public, but that's just me.

Anyway, he deserves to be at his daughter's funeral. Even if he wasn't consistent in her life.

I didn't say a word negative about him seeking donations, i was responding to another poster who talked about him raising one of the girls. I was under the impression 1 of the other little girls was his. I don't have all these family dynamics worked out.. it's really confusing...

I can't afford to go to my grandmother's memorial because it is just over 200 miles away, and I don't have the money to get there. Family and friends are just as poor. I couldn't afford to make a trip across town right now unless it was planned and budgeted at least a week in advance, and possibly not even then. However, when it comes to caring for my children, I am not lacking in any sense.
Parenting is not about money.

Please note, Ali's dad will not be getting the other children because he is not their father (I don't think he is anyway) and even if he were to somehow gain custody, victims services will provide the care for the children that were traumatized.

ETA: remember too, that this was not an open ended request for cash, where he just wanted to rake in as much as he could. WIthin two days of making the request, he had the money and was reportedly hitting the road. Not like many of the money grubbers we see in some cases.

That is wonderful news! I wonder if Aliahna's half-sister will eventually be placed in the custody of her father?

OK, this is starting to get very squishy.


So a woman in Centerville, Iowa filed a protective order against MP for sexually harassing a 13 year old girl. MP lived with this girl's father.

Ali's bio dad also lives in Centerville, Iowa.

Somehow, MP ends up living in Fort Wayne - in a trailer right next to Ali's bio dad's exwife?

Fort Wayne, IN is over 8 hours away from Centerville, Iowa.

This too much of a coincidence. There is now way that MP "coincidentally" ended up living in a trailer right next to Ali's bio dad's exwife.

Could there be a connection between MP and Ali's bio dad that existed PRIOR to him befriending Ali's mother?


Ali's bio dad has stated in MSM her was introduced to MP by Tarah.

It just keeps going on and on.

In a January 2010 case, Aliahna is listed as the victim of a sexual assault. Kurtis Allen Kennedy, age 19 at the time of the crime, was originally charged with second degree sexual abuse. He was later arraigned on a charge of indecent contact with a child, an aggravated misdemeanor.

Kennedy plead not guilty to the original charge on April 16, 2010. On July 9, 2010 he entered a guilty plea to the indecent contact with a child charge.

According to a complaint affidavit signed by Centerville Police Officer Jeremy Cole, during a Jan. 21 interview with Kennedy at his home, he confessed to his acts on Jan. 2.

“On Jan. 21, 2010 at approximately 3:20 p.m., DHS case worker Sarah Baker and I [Jeremy Cole] interviewed the defendant [Allen Kennedy] in his home, during the interview Kennedy did admit to partially disrobing Aliahna Lemmon, a seven year old child, and placing his hand on the child’s bare buttock, while the child was in his case on the evening of Jan. 2, 2010,” the affidavit said. “The defendant did so for the sole purpose of self-sexual gratification. The victim, Aliahna Lemmon, confirmed the defendant’s admission.”

Mu guess is that most of his family and friends are in the same situation that he is in having no buffer of money for an emergency.

He may not have a car that would make such a trip and renting one would be out of the question. Where will he stay while he is in Ft. Wayne? Certainly not with A's mother. He would need a little money for food.

He may not be paid for day's he away from work, either, putting more of a financial burden on his family.

Thanks to compassionate LE he will be able to make the trip.

Only the girls were given to fugitive criminal (and child stalker) for a week. The boys, if they exist, were not. So they may not have enough for neglect of the boys. We'll see.


I'm not understanding why it is not an all or none if ANY children in the household are taken by CPS. I don't understand the logic of some, but not others. It makes zero sense to me.

I wouldn't be surprised if she did. However, we have only been told that she slept in her coat the night she supposedly disappeared. Apparently she had already been dead for a day, so it was a lie.

Could MP have said she slept with her coat on because he had disposed of the coat and if anybody was to believe the sleepwalking story they'd have to think she took her coat while asleep and it may not be something she'd have done?

The truth behind the lies. He knew he killed her, he knew he put her in the freezer, subconsciously, his mind made the connection freezer-cold-coat. Therefore, what came out of his mouth was that Ali had her coat on, because to say that she was cold would be almost like giving away the answer.

MOO.

The bag shown in the article on April appears to me to be Glad brand Wide Seal freezer bags.

It's possible that April's killer was MP, but he would have been only 16 years old at the time; the crime occurred in 1988.

If MP is 39 now, he would have been about 15 when April was abducted. Not that it's impossible, but he would have had to pretty much been living in that area, since 15yo's don't have much mobility.

But, honestly - if he started killing at 15, I would guess that he would have been caught for at least SOMETHING in the last 25 or so years. Maybe not rape, murder or molestation, but there would be something - even peeping tom stuff, or whatever.
