    FL - Emilio Martinez-Rodriguez, 34, Tampa, 15 Dec 2010


    <snip>

    Martinez-Rodriguez was out getting Chinese food and root beer for his wife, who is 14 weeks pregnant and had a craving.

    Surveillance video taken from outside of a neighbor's house showed Martinez-Rodriguez's car driving by.

    Police say they believe he made it home because they found a Sweet Bay grocery bag outside in the driveway. However, detectives believe something happened to Martinez-Rodriguez outside, causing him to never make it inside the house.

    He seems like such a sweet guy...buying his wife her Chinese food, kissing her on the head on the way out.

    I hope LE finds out more from the neighbor's video.
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    TAMPA It was Wednesday evening and a pregnant Kacee Martinez had a headache. Her husband gave her a kiss and left to pick up Chinese takeout and root beer, leaving his cellphone behind.

    She knew he'd be right back and would rub her feet until she felt better.

    I was just coming to see if anybody had posted this. How scary. My good friend has a friend whose best friend is the wife (you got that?) They appear to be nice, normal people. It's awful.

    was looking for the latest updates & found this from Thursday

    <snip>

    Whatever happened to Rodriguez may point back to the neighbor's surveillance video. A man is seen running in the direction of Rodriguez's house - likely the same man spotted by a neighbor, who asked to remain anonymous, just a half-hour earlier in his backyard.

    "There was somebody in the ditch. I said, 'Ma, there's somebody in the yard.' Then he looks right at me. It's pretty scary to know there's somebody missing. He could do anything."

    Father speaks out about missing son

    <snip>
    "The type of person Emilio is, Emilio is a great son, a great person full of lots of love, a defender of the rights of others since he was young. We know he is a good husband and that he will be a great father if God gives him the opportunity to do so," said Emilio Rodriguez Sr.

    So here is my for what it's worth.

    Is it just me or does anybody else find it odd that Emilio just happens to leave for chinese food and root beer and this "strange" man just happens to luck out after being in a ditch and pounce on the first car that pulls up after being looked at straight on by the neighbor ? The food is left in the driveway, nobody hears or see's anything like a scuffle ?

    I am calling BS, this was planned. My first impression ....

    I wonder how long these two have been together ?



    Moo.....

    I was hoping there would be a thread on this one, its just so strange. I am wondering if maybe it was gang related or drug related or something. Its just strange that a predator would be just waiting in a neighborhood to abduct the first person he sees. Very strange. Anyhow prayers for his poor wife and family. Thankfully she seems to have a lot of support. With no sign of him for this long I dont think this will end very well.
