    So when does a case warrant their own forum? What are the parameters? IIRC Gabriel Johnson had a forum by now.

    I know. I never hear about anything until after nancy gets ahold of it. But if she doesnt then some cases dont even get attention. (Samantha Clark 4example)

    why would they mention the tip to the media if it didnt have any merit? I would think it would have been checked out already, do they mention it the leads to show tips are coming in ?

    I would think they would call for the public to keep their eyes and ears open and encourge the public to hand of flyers and pass nformation along in social media and remind the public of the reward.

    Answer some questions about any changes that may have affected their efforts this far. ect..

    RE: The Cell Pings.

    @CALIGRAM- You bring up one excellent point as I was just thinking about this afternoon. Is LE positive that SA had his cell phone with him for the entire day that Monday?

    Jim lives just South of Birmingham, Alabama. Say @ 6am Jim drives with his cell to
    Tuscaloosa (about an hour away) going to his friend Chad's place to feed his dog (Chad's in Tokyo on vacation) hang out for an hour even ordering a Pay-per-view movie just before leaving. He also leaves his cell there and he goes back to Birmingham. Jim's back in B'ham @ 9:00 am he decides to i dunno, commit a crime. So he does his deed which takes about two hours that's 11am. He goes back to T-town and picks up his cell and turn off Chad's TV. He go to a very popular BBQ joint there for a rib sammich for lunch the place is packed. It's 1pm when he heads back to B'ham arriving back @ 2pm.

    So when the police search Jim's cell records and pings, where is his cell pinging @10:02am the time of the actual crime? Jim has left a neat little paper trail. Witnesses at the rib joint, etc. So on that evidence alone Jim is released and is no longer a person of interest.

    TBH, there's too many posts violating forum rules: sleuthing folks that shouldn't be sleuthed, posting links to minors, posting minors' names, bickering, baiting, bashing LE, going OT, name-calling, posting w/o links, discussing rumors that were "put to rest", etc.

    Mods spend their time cleaning up the thread - many (hopefully most all) posts in violation are removed so it may not seem as problematic as it is.

    That said, responsible posting means following the rules while discussing the case.

    HTH.

    Memphis and Colorado City are a lot closer to each other than Roanoke and San Fransisco were. You can't get much further away from Virginia than California without leaving the country.

    If a woman in California recognizes a missing girl from Virginia...(44 hour drive, 2700 miles) from seeing her once on Nancy Grace, then I'm not going to discount a tip from Memphis about a missing girl in Texas (12 hour drive, 700 miles). Hailey has also gotten more national coverage as well.

    Not to mention, we do not know for sure what this tip is. It may be a tip about SHAWN having a history in this area. Tips in other cases have been about previous assaults and their locations.

    Either way, whether it is a sighting, a possible body location, or a tip about a suspect I see NO reason to discount it because it's 700 miles away. Elizabeth Smart was taken 700 miles away too. It only takes watching Nancy one time. Or stumbling on the story online.

    Taken from Virginia, found in California. 44 hours, 2700 miles away by a Nancy Grace viewer.

    http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIP.../13/ng.01.html

    SHANLEY: So I went in and asked the clerk to call their local police department, which would be the Richmond station, and she did. She dialed it for me. And I spoke to them and said, you know, there's a young girl out here with a white male from 25 to 35, and she looks to be between the ages of -- I think I said 15 to 18, but she`s young. And it doesn't look right.

    And last night, I'd seen a show on CNN, and there was a woman crying to -- her aunt, asking for him to bring her home for her mother's funeral and for Christmas. And that was first time I had seen her face. And her brown eyes is what got me. So I said -- as I'm talking with the police officer, I says, I was watching CNN, Nancy Grace, I think it was your show. I just know it was CNN, and that it may be this child from Virginia.

    And the cop even said, Virginia? And I said, yes, there was a murder in Virginia, and the man killed the woman and took the child, and this might be them. I wasn't sure, but my intuition was telling me something's not right here. And sure enough, it was her and him. My intuition was right.

    ME mom speaks out.
    MB received a text message that said "what are you doing?"

    She says the message was sent from Hailey's mother's cell phone at about 2 o'clock, which Hailey always used, but G says she worries that there is no evidence to prove Hailey sent that message.

    I totally understand the reasons, and agree with your assessment, but IMO, if there was a thread for "pings" a thread for "the earrings" a thread for "what the hairdresser saw", etc., it might reduce the amount of "rehashing" of things that have been cleared up time after time, in thread after thread.

    My job is 30% clerical, 20% technical, and 50% waiting around until someone requires one of the aforementioned services. Our internet connection is slow, and we are strongly discouraged from watching video or streaming music, but there's nothing preventing me from reading MOST news stories during the down-time. Some subjects are blocked, although sometimes the blocker is "wrong" and blocks content that is not objectionable (ex. you can go to hotmail and yahoo, but not AOL). Sometimes it will display an article, but "block" most of the ads on the page. I'm sure it DOES block all the stuff that really IS bad too.

    One site that is blocked is the TruTV Crime Library. I think that is a "mistake" since there's no block on news of the same sorts of crimes, but there's no way around it. I can read and post here from work, which is nice. At the rate I read, and with my workload, It can take me all day to read a thread, using very little bandwidth.

    Maybe when I get a "smartphone" with 3g/4g internet I can read there from work, but there isn't even a wifi connection for my netbook now. There's a point to this...

    In Thread 39 there was some comparing/contrasting of this case to Polly Klaas. I am sure I know the Polly Klaas case, but ATM only remember the basics. I opened the TruTV article in a tab in my browser yesterday but never got back to it. I know I can't read it from work, so I went to the Crime Library site this morning and used "copy & paste" to quickly transfer the content on Polly to a Word document so I could save it and email it to myself to read at work, in spite of EVERYTHING I HAVE READ IN THIS CASE!

    While I have no intention of printing it out at work, in essence, what I did isn't that different from what Billie did. I went to the site where I have access, and made a copy (in her case a hard copy) to read at my leisure when I do not have access. It didn't even occur to me that I was doing virtually the same thing she did, and, in a sense, for similar reasons.

    I can't say what her interest in the articles was, as I do not know her. I do know that Nancy's mention of sulfuric acid, and discussion of marauding feral pigs and their dining habits sent many of us to the TruTV Crime Library and like sites to look for cases with similar disposal methods, and read some pretty horrible stuff. There are posters here who reviewed every article listed in the affidavit when it came out. At one point, I had more than 200 true crime books in my home. My reason for reading true crime was to "learn how those people think" so I could better protect myself and my family. It's how I learned NOT to park next to a white van in the dark part of a parking lot, to be skeptical of men in casts moving furniture, and not to jump to conclusions too quickly about "whodunnit".

    Until and unless it is proven that there is a connection to the case, I don't think Billie should be condemned so quickly for this. It may not have been the most constructive use of her time at work, nor mine for that matter, but it isn't necessarily as sinister as it's been made out to be.

    There, but for the grace of God, go I... and all that.

    Angry

    I also wish we had a forum for Hailey, however, I totally understand WHY we don't have one.

    I know that after reading some of the posts, it's pretty obvious that there was an agenda at work in some of them. I love insider information, when it verified and true. However, I don't like to feel manipulated into believing a totally unbelievable story.

    BD hasn't been honest about key aspects of this case. She has totally contradicted herself numerous times. The last straw for me was the Nancy Grace ratings comment. A lot of parents would give everything they had to see their missing child highlighted on Nancy Grace, just once. I totally understand there are things that BD doesn't want to talk about. She can say she doesn't want to talk about them and to keep the focus on Hailey. But, she doesn't. She deflects questions about SA to make both of them look better.

    I'm so confused about this case. Upset too, because the one person who should want to find her daughter, is too busy worrying about her b/f and her own reputation. I just know that Hailey is missing and needs to be found, and if BD and SA's reputations are somehow tarnished in the meantime, they have no one to blame but themselves. JMO, IMO, and all other disclaimers.

    Has there been any more information concerning the sunglasses and knife sheath that were found by searchers on Jan 7th about a mile from SA's GM house in Dunn, TX ? Where there pictures taken? Could someone identify the sunglasses as his? Wish we had more info, it sure could explain why it's been stated that he sits on the porch watching the searchers.
