Where are you Phylicia?
I noticed I have not seen anywhere if JS has stated whether or not PB was one to normally take daytime naps. I wish JS would make a statement as to whether or not it was a habit of PB's to take daytime naps if she was up late the night before.
Gosh from the above both MJ and DB have their timelines messed up. MJ says he arrived at the apt at 4:50 and 5:10 which is it?
Why would PB leave her email open if she was leaving the apartment willingly?
That concerns me..
If MJ knew (overheard/was eavesdropping) and knew KB would be there about 1:30 why wouldn't he nudge PB to wake her when her phone was ringing?
My hinky meter is still flying on MJ.
Great time line georgiajean.
As far as little bro having a key to the apt, I don't believe he had a personal key. There was no need for him to have one if MJ worked at night, he would be home in the day. DB would have been home at night if little bro wanted to stop by. On the 28th of Dec, MJ could have easily gave key to little bro in between time, little bro would arrive (back) at apt later in afternoon before MJ to let MJ back in. Criminals always go back to the scene of a crime.
These are my thoughts/feelings about each family member:
JS-I'm feeling sympathy
BB-I'm feeling sympathy
RB-I want to feel sympathy, but I am confused as to why he is keeping MJ from JS. Mixed emotions about him right now.
MJ-I'm feeling suspicious. I would like to hear him speak. I read the comments he wrote on the PB website (then deleted) and I don't blame him for deleting because those statements were contradictary. Also if PB and DB were as close as RB claims, that would give MJ a motive to harm PB, maybe being spiteful about her wanting "out" of the "relationship".
LB-I'm feeling disturbed. It seems I read some where (perhaps the Find PB site) that he was being rude and disrespectful to PB, including mocking her southern dialect. I think he is bad news and should be given a drug test. Don't know much about him or why he was there.
DB-I'm feeling uneasy. I have a lot of ?s: Why did she did leave PB alone with 2 male roommates? Why did she change LB to "cousin" after saying "LB" 4x. Why was she hesitant to give names and ages? Why was she so specific in her description of PB, when MJ was the last one to see PB? I feel that she is hiding something important. I felt in her voice that she still has feelings for MJ or is in denial that he is involved in PB's disappearance.
KB-I just flat out don't believe her statements. I'm a case worker for DSS and KB has the same language as the people I interview. It's that "double talk", when someone is talking a lot but saying nothing! I've been lied to many times from people trying to fraud the system and that's the feeling I get from her. I feel that she too, is hiding something. Plus if she only lives 10 min away from DB, why did she go half a day without checking on PB in person? That's a major issue for me.
SS -I'm feeling curious about the sister in NC. I want to hear her speak. I feel this is where ALL THE ANSWERS LIE! As I stated before, SS was in touch with PB throughout PB's entire visit and PB confided in her about things that were happening, some of which SS kept from JS until PB went missing.
All of the above.....................................JMO
Hope this is not too OT, but I've wanted to say this for a long time regarding this case. WAY too much traffic in this apt. If I was a neighbor I would immediately suspect drug dealing. Even when I was their age and living with 4 roommates in a dorm pod we had no where close to these many visitors including the weekends.
My 1st place on my own was sharing a house with 2 other girls.Within a few months I knew this was not going to work for long. Trusted friends bringing over completely unknown people, eating all my food, and items missing. Not to mention trying to get some sleep while roommates and friends are partying away due to different schedules.
While there was a man of the house, MJ..after he moved out all persons who had been there previously knew there wouldn't be any more. Who could know that the worst of the worst would happen--a missing person. Still, you are setting yourself up for theft at the least.
I am hoping that person(s) responsible will be arrested soon. The fact that LE is still scheduling polygraphs makes me pause. Hopefully this is more to include POIs rather than still excluding possible persons.
I don't think anyone has taken a polygraph as yet, is that correct? LE would like to get some scheduled and taken, but no guarantee people will cooperate.
I agree totally about the amount of traffic in and out of this apartment; I know times have changed, but this was not a college-aged young person, she is 27, a grown woman. Way too many people, especially men. But we can't change that part of this case, unfortunately. It just makes so much more work for LE to try to narrow it down. The place must be packed with fingerprints, etc.
Please, someone, have a heart...tell the police what you know. I feel certain that more than one person knows what happened and where P is...
Just my opinion, of course.
I have been following Phylicia's story since Day 1 and IMHO there is only one person that knows what happened to PB on 12-28-10. First let me begin with the fact that PB would not leave that apartment without a working cellphone, in slippers and no money or debit card to go get something to eat. If PB was still sleeping at 8:45 A.M. when DB went to work, why would she go to sleep again at 1-1:30 P.M? Why would she go to sleep if she had a empty stomach? How could she sleep on the couch with MJ moving and doing his laundry? JS stated on Nancy Grace that if Phylicia was up, showered and dressed for the day that PB would have not taken a nap in the afternoon. PB was knew that her sister was coming to get her and I think she would have been excited to be going with her shopping. Teens love to shop! She never had a chance to get her debit card on her person and PB knew she was going shopping. Something happened around the time of PB's shower. And we all know that MJ was at the apartment during this time. He was the last person to see her! If she has walked to Reisterstown Plaza the dogs would have picked up PB's scent and that did not happen. Someone by now would have seen PB walking to the Plaza and that did not happen. If PB was injured or killed, the apartment may have not been the crime scene. The apartment was where PB was taken from. The crime scene could have very well been elsewhere and that is the reason no evidence has been found to date.
I hope and pray that LE is still watching and listening to MJ, his family members and friends. I hope LE is watching his every move because as we all know he returned to the apartment later and he may return to where ever PB is now. Even though news and LE are stating he is not the perp, that is BOLOGNA! He will hang himself with his own rope. I will bet my paycheck on it ! Sorry to ramble on but all I want is for PB to be found so her family can know what happened to their beautiful daughter!

My prayers are with Phylicia, Kyron andall children who are missing!
Seems like POI (who actually committed the foul act) can be narrowed down to (two) people.
POI, (who assisted in cover up) can be at least 6 people
PB's online items, such as mail and FB probably was able to be accessed because PB probably got approached while still online. JMO
Something else that has crossed my mind. MJ knew the B family had a family member in LE. I keep thinking why would he risk harming one of them knowing they have a cop in the family? (not that it really matters, I know of instances where cops have had immediate family members murdered).
Then it occured to me if MJ smokes pot his evenings are our mornings being a nightworker. It might have not been out of the ordinary for him to get off work in the morning, smoke up a bit during the early morning/daytime hours before his normal daytime bed time.

Am I allowed to give info from a fb page of a relative?
It sounds like LE is trying to be cautious in terms of how they are handling MJ. I think they should investigate the 10 yr affair with him & DB. Where did they meet? Was there any domestic abuse? Was it steady, rocky? To me this is all relevant because there is plenty of motive if MJ felt that PB was interfering with his relationship with DB.
Besides, no one bothered to ask DB, "why is MJ your ex?". Why did he have to move? Was it mutual? What caused the breakup? They should study this more because at first I was thinking DB was a bad influence on PB, but what if PB was a GOOD influence on DB??? Maybe MJ was jealous that DB was "changing" (if you will) and he felt that DB didn't need him any more because she could devote all her attention to PB in order to move on with her life (WITHOUT MJ).
hmm...idk...just talking out loud...JMO.
According to both DB and MJ (on the find PB face page before it was sanitized) and possibly the peas interview they both said the relationship had been over for a long time and they hadn't yet parted ways due to it being comfortable. I'm not sure/convinced PB would have had any part of any changes in DB, perhaps DB being in her late 20's had grown apart from the man she started dating in her teens.
I don't think what lead to the break up has any part in this case. I do think perhaps anger, the move, retaliation against DB might.
BUT once my daughter is up and showered and dressed,[ especially if wearing a brand new outfit, and getting ready to be picked up to go shopping and out for lunch], she wouldn't go back to sleep.
That is what does not make sense to me. If she was up late and drank alcohol, then I could believe she was sleeping at 1;30. But knowing that she had showered already and was texting with others about her imminent plans makes me doubt that she went back to sleep.
i TOTALLTY agree way too many people in and out of apt. when i was younger having lived on my own i kept a level of privacey. i think db is a fool to have so much activity going on if your slleping over on a consist basis you better contribute to the rent. what exactly caused db and mj to break up. was it the fact he just did whatever he wanted at the apt bring all his friends over running in and out and she had enough remember she didnt know he was there that morning. where are you neighbors how are you not the least bit curious as to what is going on down there. db had basement apt. also when i had apt i could clearly hear everything going on in adjacent apts. as a matter of fact i lived in one apt. building i could hear my neighbors in next building making out my bedroom wall was next to their bedroom wall. so i know the neighbors heard all sort of activity in db apt.

My posts are meant to help think through possibilities and are strictly an additional opinion under circumstances when many points of view need to be considered. I apologize in advance to anyone whose potential involvement is contemplated in error. Please understand that much of what is happening is merely brainstorming during unfortunate events.
I agree something is up with the stop texts calls AND her email being open on DB's computer. Either she closed it or whoever took her and came back to the apartment found it via history and the passwords were saved......
If she was going to lay down she would not have left her email open. And no, I don't believe she took a nap. I believe she left that apartment with someone she knew not knowing she was not going to be returned. Someone who had access to that apartment during the day. We know of two.
I don't think DB would have gone to work if she knew PB couldn't wake in the morning. I do think LE can verify the skin type test. I find it hard to believe/fathom MJ would have been posing as PB taking an online skin test while texting with DB or talking to DB but I supposed anything is possible.
I would like to know if DB spoke with PB via her cell phone or a work phone.
also i read where mj was supposedly doing laundry that day is laundry room on same level as db basement apt. kinda spookey to be living next to laundry room if that the case. i want to know why lbc showed back up how would he know if anyone was going to be there or not. okay lets say lbc came back to apt door as locked nobody home now what does lbc do sit around outside until db or mj show up to let him in. how did lbc get back to apt? it not adding up
I think it is possible looking in hindsight, DB may have some yellow flags or concerns that perhaps MJ is capable of harming PB but it would only be in hindsight.
It can only be narrowed down to a few motives in regards to MJ. One being that he was upset about having to move. Another is that MJ overheard something in PB's phone conversation to (who ever she was speaking to) when PB said, "yeah, he here, he doing laundry. That statement allows DB to know that MJ will be around the apt with PB for some time alone or with little bro. Maybe DB didn't want MJ to be around PB for a long period of time for what ever reason. Also, although it's stated that DB and MJ were on rocky relations, by MJ continuing to reside at apt, they were probably continuing to be intimate at times. When a 'NEW' female comes around, men always check her out. Nice body frame, young and naive. Most times boys and men attempt to see what they can get away with (becoming bold) when they are drinking and smoking (best friend green). Sometimes when men are rejected but see someone else has scored, they feel less than little. At times feeling disrespected because they were not allowed to score. JMO
