    wenwe, thank you for starting this thread. Am I the only person who remembers that her hearing aids were found in the hallway at 21 21st?

    I've searched MSM and cannot verify this right now. Any help would be much appreciated.
    You can hold back from the suffering of the world. You have free permission to do so and it is in accordance with your nature.
    But perhaps this very holding back is the one suffering you could have avoided.

    Yes, when I read the hallway, I thought what kind of house keeper was EB and why in a hallway drawer etc?
    At first the report was Zahra's bedroom, which made sense.
    Then a link came out about hallway.

    Yes I remember when the link was posted about the hearing aids in the hallway. The only reason I would not this this was odd is if there was some sort of table or hutch with a lamp on it sitting in the hallway outside of her room. I have one I throw my keys and shoes on so that the dog doesn't chew them.

    were the hearing aids found. If not then I would think she died during waking hours. During sleep I would assume they were out?

    PATHETIC either way..she could hear the torment or just see and feel the pain without hearing their words to her when this took place.

    THis is the saddest most disturbing crime story that I have heard about in a very long time. May Zarah rest in peace and await her bio mom in heaven

    I recall FINDING and posting the link but I think it was another case of an article being editted after the fact and I didn't know how to do and post the screenshot thingy.

    So frustrating how much misinformation is about. How can we effectively sleuth when we can't even be sure of the facts as reported in MSM?

    Would like to know if the batteries were dead and if it is possible to tell how long those batteries had been dead. Wonder if it could be verified what brand or type of batteries were put in them when she got them. I kinda think the originals were in there and once they died those hearing aids went into either that hallway drawer/table or a table in Zahra's room where they sat.

    I would tend to agree with this completely except for the fact that she had them during the time she was in school and it was the school that iniciated her getting them to begin with. It would have brought up red flags if she would have been attending school without them. Now she could have been forced to wear them with dead batterys for appearence sake I supose but then I think they would have the same effect as ear plugs and surely someone would have noticed that also. I dont think EB would want to call undue attention of her abuse to the school. JMO

    Since we have a dedicated thread now, I am bringing over a couple of my old posts, including the link to the video where they say that the hearing aids were found in the hall.


    If EB was involved in Zahra's disappearance, do you think she would have the foresight to deliberately leave the girl's hearing aids behind?

    Did she forget about them?

    Did she wait until Zahra took them out and went to sleep, to attack her?

    Did Zahra always take the hearing aids out, when she went to bed?

    Are Zahra's fingerprints, the only ones on the hearing aids?

    Why leave the hearing aids but dispose of the prosthetic leg?

    I wonder if Zahra was known to take out the hearing aids and take off the prosthetic leg at bedtime?

    I am just looking at video interviews from the beginning of the case, and just skip right on over if you already know these 2 details.

    I didn't know them, and thought there were others who may also not know.

    -Zahra's hearing aids were recovered in the hall of her home

    -According to Brittany B. and her mother Kim D., Zahra stayed over at their house often. They said that Zahra's routine never varied. About an hour before bed, Zahra would take off her prosthetic leg. Always.

    I'm confident that LE has checked everything out and has obtained alot of interesting info about them that they aren't divulging.

    True, but Zahra hadn't been in school for awhile due to summer and then the 'homeschooling' story from EB, so it is possible that they hadn't been worn for some time and just left unused and forgotten about when Zahra 'went missing'.

    IIRC Zahra got them on May 10, 2010. School usually ends the first week of June. So, Zahra very well could have worn them until school let out - then, well......everybody else has posted about this. It was summer and then "homeschooling" phone call once school started back up.

    She had "behind the ear" style hearing aids so no,she wouldn't be able to sleep in them. They're uncomfortable to wear just in general. I'm hearing impaired and wore them when I was young but they aren't all that helpful for my type of impairement. I think Zahra expressed the same thing on an interview,she could hear better without them.

    I wouldn't think much of the aids being kept in a drawer in the hallway since they're very expensive little machines ($450-$1200 each,depending on type) that a child could easily break.

    But were they found on the floor or carefully tucked away is what I'd find very important. And why not throw them out with the leg or just in the trash? Part of the cover-up maybe? Knowing she wouldn't bother to put them in if being kidnapped? Or did they want to try to sell them at a later date?

    Oh and the batteries can last months or longer,depending on how often the aids are used.

    She didn't say she could hear better without them.

    Wouldn't surprise me if they were taken from her as a form of punishment.
