Seems like a phone interview or something would be more practical if they really were more or less separated, etc, unless they have other reasons to want to see him...

    I agree, if the commenter is correct, that they need to look at both the BF and the husband.

    Has anyone seen anything that says when the husband returned home on leave? Or where he was staying during that time?

    I am about to speak in regards to the Air Force but I would assume each branch has something similar in place. The Air Force has something called the OSI. It is bascially the FBI but for the Air Force. They are trained agents and everything but also military personel. They investigate any military personel "wrong doings" be it suicide, theft, murder, etc. They do this along side local authorities because besides the "bad person" being put on trial locally, they also have to go through a military trial (court marshall). So, just trying to say that even though the husband is in the military and deployed he will be interviewed, at least by someone like the OSI.

    I also find that comment very very interesting under that article and hope we can get some clarification on if that is true or not. It sounds believeable and straight to the point. IMO

    And it gets more confusing (makes me wonder about that comment now - how true it really is? Seems like there's a lot below the surface here):

    Bethany had gone on a vacation to Hawaii with her husband, Emile Decker, just before his deployment to Afghanistan.

    Do they mean though that they went to Hawaii prior to his original deployment or while he was home temporarily on leave in January?

    I wondered the same thing but the context makes it seem like recently. Here's more of the statement, in context - seems like it wouldn't be embedded in there if it was prior to his original deployment, kwim?

    Bethany Anne Decker, 21, was reported missing on February 19th, although she has not been seen since January 29th.

    Bethany had gone on a vacation to Hawaii with her husband, Emile Decker, just before his deployment to Afghanistan. Her family have tried to reach her and could not get in contact with her. Bethany's car was found parked in a garage at her Ashburn apartment. There was no sign of packed bags and her cell phone, bank account and credit cards have not been used since January 29.

    Here's further clarification from a different article (bbm):

    Investigators say just before she went missing she had gone on a vacation to Hawaii with her husband, an Army soldier who was back in the states on leave from Afghanistan.

    I am a Navy wife in VA. We had a Navy wife found dead back in Sept '10 while her husband was on deployment out at sea. They flew him home immediately from the ship to figure out what was going on. Turns out a fellow sailor that was a neighbor, that lived above her murdered her. It was really, really erie and a lot of Navy wives were VERY worried. She did live alone with no kids, just a dog and her family lived I think 5 states away, but she talked to her family everyday.

    As far as myself, there can be months that goes by before I get to see my parents, in laws, brother, etc. But I do try to call my mom everyday. I have other Navy wives I talk to via text OR facebook to make sure they're okay, safe, need anything, etc.

    Saying that, I DO know a couple of wives who don't really talk to their family at all. They just have strange relationships and just keep everything to theirselves. I have a friend who talks to her family maybe every month and a half.

    I can't see how she didnt have friends in the area she talked to? Checked on her? Went out to lunch with or something? That doesn't make sense?

    As far as her husband..I am sure they have questioned him. The military takes this stuff very seriously.

    Wow... good question. I would think so, since she was seen on 1/29 at her apartment complex and her husband left on 2/2?

    I am beginning to get the impression that someone other than the husband may be responsible. In what I have found, it almost seems like Bethany's family is closer to Emile than to Bethany. I may be wrong, but I'm not so sure at this point that Emile is responsible.

    Good points, cmlegend99! I wonder though, was she more of a college student than a military wife or vice versa? I definitely realize that there is generally a relationship between military wives, especially when husbands are deployed, but was she a part of this circle? Or was she more involved and active with her college life than being a wife to a deployed husband? Or even a mother for that matter? Where did her priorities lie?

    cmledgend - yay for Navy ... I was a Navy brat and am now and Air Force spouse. I agree with you in that some spouses have a distant relationship with their family. Not sure if it's because of the military life or it was just their life before that anways.
    As far as friends in the area ... if I recall correctly an article stated that it was a friend who last saw her on 1/29 she does have some people apparently. Her husband being NG I am not sure what their military support system is like?! If no one has heard from me and they knew my husband was gone, our unit, be it spouses or the memebers themselves, would be digging deep and fast to see if I was ok. In fact when he is gone I get a call at least once a week, more if I don't answer that initial call. This all depends of course! Just adding to your great post.

    Hmm very strange indeed that comment left by "Anonymous". But then again you know all these people who have nothing better than to make up stories and hinder cases. Whatever the case is she deserves to be found safe!

    Seems like we're getting all kinds of conflicting information.

    *I read that Bethany is estranged from her family

    vs.

    *I read she was always in contact by phone/text with either her mother or her siblings

    *I read that Bethany and her husband were estranged, and that the apartment she lived in was one she shared with another man- a boyfriend

    vs.

    *I read that Bethany and her husband recently went on vacation to Hawaii

    *I read that Bethany would never leave her 17 mo. old baby boy

    vs.

    *The last time her family (who is caring for her son) saw her was Christmas Eve, though she didn't go off the grid until January 29th- leaving more than a month's worth of voluntary no contact with her son.

    It just seems that for every statement of "fact" that we receive, we get another statement of "fact" that is claiming the exact opposite!
