    I'm just popping in here, I've been trying to keep up.

    Geez. That sketch looks a lot like the ex minus some weight and add a mustache. A lot of the features look the same to me though which is bizarre because it's obviously not him.

    I think I'll just wait for the facts to shake out in this case; I think if ex is involved, it won't be that hard to prove and LE will find enough links with moving of money, cell records, computer, etc...and who knows if this guy has anything to do with anything...could be an oddball walking in the woods...

    As far as not letting LE search w/o a warrant...whether we like it or not, a person appears guilty of something if they won't LE search, regardless of laws and rights...it is just a matter of perception. If parents of a missing child refused a police search, can you imagine what we would think of them? I know as Americans we are not required to let LE into our homes without search warrants and in most cases I agree, but there are also times when it is in your best interests to just get past it and lel LE do their jobs. Refusing a search does put added attention on a person, in my opinion and may slow down the process of looking for real perp.
    As far as the ex in this case...he is/was a suspect right out of the gate and would have been crazy if he did not hire a lawyer at once, guilty or not. The bit with his cars is not looking good for him, but we don't know the details.
    As I said, I will wait and see. Sadly, I think it is too late for Venus, but not too late for justice, as long as they get it right. All my opinion only, obviously.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    There is something wrong with this guy and that video proves it.

    This man is not considered a suspect at this time. Witnesses say he was acting suspicious prior to Stewart's disappearance.

    Well that certainly doesn't describe DS, that's for sure.

    I believe it was either in a report or maybe the MSP release, he's 5'11" / 250 lbs.

    Well this sketch is OBVIOUSLY not Doug Stewart...apparently this guy came out of the woods about a mile away from the location where Venus disappeared and was asking where he was...I find this strange.

    No, her parents' income isn't calculated in either TANF or Food Stamps in Michigan. Their income would be calculated and included if she were under 18 with dependent children. But because she us over 18 she would probably be eligible for both TANF and FS immediately, and she would not be required to participate in "workfare" because her children are young.

    It's my opinion that Doug either did it himself or had someone else do it for him. I hope LE is looking at all of his connections.

    No doubt. A 150 lb. man picking her up high enough so that she could kick against the propane tank, all the while holding her mouth to keep her from screaming?

    Ah... isn't it Federal law that parents DO have to participate after the child is a certain age (and much younger than hers IIRC)? I'll have to look that up again; was actually checking on that very thing not long ago.

    I know! I can't in my wildest dreams imagine joking about strap-ons up the butt with kids that age.

    I have a pretty raunchy sense of humor--I'm not a prude... but never would I joke with my son's friends or my young family members about that topic. And then tell them I'm going to put it all on the internet so everyone can see.

    Just.... GROSS.

    Participant Requirements

    Work requirements

    (referencing Federal law): Recipients must participate in work activities after reaching a trigger limit of no more than 24 months. States determine work requirements for families but lose some federal funds if a sufficient portion of their caseload does not meet federal work participation criteria.

    "FIP" is their TANF program. I notice they have a cap of 48 months lifetime rather than 60.

    You may be excused from FIP or RAP work rules if you are:

    • Under the age of 16.
    • Age 65 or older.
    • A parent of a baby less than three (3) months old. You may be assigned to family strengthening activities once the baby is six weeks old.
    • A parent of a child who is active with Early OnŽ.
    • Working 40 hours per week.
    • Age 16-19, in school full-time, and expected to graduate before age 20.
    • Caring for a child or spouse with a disability (depending on the person's needs and the child's school attendance).
    • A person with a disability or medical limitations.
    • Experiencing a temporary critical event such as domestic violence (determined by DHS)
    .
    But then this:

    You may be excused from FAP work rules if you are:
    • Age 60 or older.
    • Personally caring for a child under the age of six (6) who is receiving FAP on your case.
    • Working 30 hours per week or earning at least minimum wage times 30 hours per week.
    • Attending high school, adult education, or in a GED program for at least half-time.
    • Injured, ill or personally caring for household member with a disability.
    • Seven - nine (7-9) months pregnant.
    • Pregnant with medical complications.
    • Applying for FAP at a Social Security office.
    • In substance abuse treatment or rehabilitation.
    • Applying for or receiving unemployment benefits.
    • Appealing denial of unemployment benefits.
    It appears that after your child is over 3 months of age, you're required to try to find work. But that site is a mess. So who knows.
