    Not sure what I am getting at! Just that he might know if someone is not telling the truth??
    I do not know Palmgrens at all, and hopefully never insinuated I did. I do know Lee Davis and Bryan Hoss enough to know them as good aquaintances, and they are good attorneys if in need, but let's just say if 'bird's of a feather, flock together' then truth has nothing to do with it, nor would it matter, unfortunately. Speculating, Hoss may have found MORE information as the investigation is revealed and thought...

    Regardless of what MP's involvment is in this case, it was all about him, IMHO.

    happy409, I wasn't thinking of you when I posted that. Actually I wasn't referring to sleuthers knowing the Palmgrens. I thought that someone on this board said that Hoss and the Palmgrens were neighbors.

    I said that if Hoss was a neighbor of the Palmgren's then he could very well have an idea of how truthful MP is being about Gail's mental state. In other words, he would have met the Palmgren's socially possibly, and had an impression of her--and him. Is that a little clearer?

    On further thought, after I posted that, I had the same thought as you: the truth has nothing to do with it anyway. He's a lawyer being paid big bucks to defend someone. Period. And like the little icon in your post is doing...he's backpedaling!!

    Does anyone one have an idea of his typical retainer fee? That is usually a good indication of what he was actually hired to do. Let's say he was retained for 5000 or so...well that is a nice round retainer for a divorce that might be contested I would think. If his retainer is 50K, well then I would be scratching my head on his purpose...didnt Terri Horman hire a big defense atty...Houze I think? His retainer was astronomical.

    I hasten to add that I am not comparing the two cases-it just popped into my head.

    BBM - Never thought that at all, but I wanted to be clear of my perceptions of those I did know, and to what extent, that was all. And knowing who I do, the rest of the answer transpired!

    Along with other legals problems encountered with having a missing spouse....finances becomes a sticky problem also.

    I don't know the laws in TN surrounding something like this, but, is there anyway he could legally divorce GP and have the assets divided...without waiting? Troubling..to the point of scary. Curious. Abandonment-- under the circumstances may run into quite a bit of problems. Would he have to wait 7 years?

    There's not much out there on the web....at least in Utah...when I tried to check on the Susan Cox Powell case. He moved to another state and rented the house.

    I am vexed between him not really wanting a divorce...1. .just for GP to keep her eyes closed and 2...getting dirty...trying to discount her as an unstable person since he had already been playing in it.

    I am having a hard time believing that this bright ted Jeep Rubicon, with custom license plates as well as custom tire cover on the back have yet to have been located.. Because if it were to be compared to something such as " a needle in a haystack".. Well... Ill just say that it the biggest, most colorful, hardest to be miss in any way, needle that i have ever seen..

    And the only conclusion that i come up with(at this point)is that IMO SOME point after 12:15 of the 30th Gail was most likely killed and then as we know Matt did not report her missing for a full 2 days later on the 2nd. And i full well believe, as some others here, that even then when he reported her missing on the 2nd was only because of prodding from Gail's family..

    Therefor between The afternoon/evening of the 30th all the way to 2 full daya later the 2nd.. That is more than enough time to thorougly rid, dispose, hide, or even destroy Gail's Jeep..

    Resulting in what I believe us much like whats happened in the Hailey Dunn case.. With her "supposed" to have gone missing early afternoon of the 27th.. She still wasnt reported til evening of 28th.. Ans not only do mist of us believe that the was plenty of time to dispose/hide Haileys remains thoroughly.. But also that its most likely tbat she actually "disappeared" on the 26th.. Thus giving the guilty perps 2 full days ahead of LE getting involved..

    Same, too here with Gail.. The perps having such an extreme jump ahead og investigators makes finding their bodies or the important evidence tying them to the crime or atleast proving that there was even crime..

    I pray that justice prevail and the good outwit the evil in their manipulative and coniving ways that tbus far have kept them above the law and basically walkkng the strrets a free man.. Literally getting away with murder!!!

    I know we have had a lot of discussion re the notification of change of address, but I am confused how MP was notified re change of PIN numbers. I don’t know if there is a difference between practices of financial institution in the USA compared to Australia but I know there is no way I would have been notified if my husband had changed anything re accounts in his name and he if I made changes to any of my account details.
    When they say PIN numbers does that refer to the number you use to use the card or does that refer to the number/password to log into the account online to do online banking.
    Link to where it says about him receiving the notifications etc http://www.chattanoogan.com/articles/article_200931.asp

    Just a few thoughts that are my own, this is in no way facts nor been reported any where.
    Did Gail leave the cards behind when she left Friday, it sounds like she was leaving under what we would say were stressful circumstances. Could this have triggered the return trip the next day, as she had been leaving important papers etc with friends, would she have thought it was important enough to travel back home if she had left behind credit cards.

    While Gail was away did MP start checking around and find things like passport missing so did he try to check balances of her accounts and discovered the change (I knew my ex’s pin numbers to his accounts/cards and him mine during our marriage because we told each other those details). Did this send up a red flag to him that Gail was getting well prepared for divorce.

    Sorry if this has been answered and I missed it, it has just been bugging me how he would have been the one notified re her account changes. Also if this post contains anything it shouldn’t, could one of the mods delete it for me please. (Very new at this posting stuff)

    I haven't heard anything about a security DVD in the news- maybe I missed it. Was it from a system in their house?

    Hi looking4lost! It's mentioned in one of the videos here:

    http://www.wrcbtv.com/Global/story.asp?S=14698557

    Arlene, Gail's friend who lives near Gail's AL lake house home, has a DVR of Gail's that she picked up from Best Buy. Matt sent Arlene a letter asking for the DVR back because it was marital property. I can't remember if we knew about the DVR before, hopefully someone else here will know.

    I have the transcript of the video posted on the News Thread and I keep the link in my signature.

    Glorias: No, we didn't know anything about this before the video came out.

    But here's the quote:

    Alabama Police Join Search Part One

    Reporter Starnes: Durham says she was helping Gail begin the divorce process and each week Gail would send her documents to hold on to. (Showing Arlene Durham holding documents).

    Arlene Durham: "She knew if I had it, it was safe."

    Starnes: Durham received a letter from Gail's husband, Matthew Palmgren, demanding that all items belonging to the family be returned and banning her from the Palmgren's lakefront property. She says she has also been asked not to "complicate" the search for Gail.

    Letter from Matt Palmgren to Arlene Durham:

    May 17 (date fuzzy on video) , 2011

    RE: Return of Property
    Via: Hand Delivery
    Arlene: It is my understanding that you are in possession of a Security System DVR that you picked up from Best Buy in Pratville, AL, on May 2, 2011. This is my property. Please give this DVR Mike Mathis, who is the private investigator whom I have hired on my behalf. I have asked Mr. Mathis to deliver this letter to you.

    Further, if you should have any other property that belongs to me or to Gail, please give the same to Mike Mathis as well.

    Sincerely, Matthew Palmgren

    There is the million dollar question...which house was the DVR recording from? In any case, since Gail gave it to Arlene, per Arlene's statement, I think she is acting as Gail's agent right so cannot be compelled by Matt to hand it over...at least that is what I think. After all, Gail is missing not dead or even "presumed" dead correct? I havent seen anything from LE that states otherwise, but they are pretty quiet other than on the subject of mental instability.

    Red Bank, maybe, but it's probably been mostly cleared up - fallen trees and power lines.

    Now out here in the eastern part of the County there is alot of cleaning up going on, but no one could hide a red jeep under a pile of firewood, and because of all the people driving around in the area, someone would have spotted the jeep even out on the country roads. Most people are burning brush or shredding branches in wood chippers.

    Between where I live and Ringgold, Ga, the police have been closing some of the roads to sight-seers on the weekends at the request of the families who feel exposed by the storm. Some buildings were blown right off their foundations. There wasn't enough left to hide anything.
    I grew up around the Applewood area before St. Ives was built. Before they began construction, there were what was known as mudpits all through the 1/2 mile or so of woods between my neighborhood and the Timesville area, which were also known as the dirtbike or motorcycle pits, which I mentioned earlier.

    These mudpits were also automobile graveyards because there were old abandoned cars that were slowly sinking in them. The St. Ives neighborhood was developed directly over these mudholes.

    Behind Timesville/Applewood/St. Ives, there is about 15-25 miles of trails and undeveloped woods and who knows what else or if there are more sinkholes back there.

    There are still numerous areas of undeveloped (I live across from a property of 500 acres of woods, and next to 60 acres of woods) and lakes on the mountain, which is one of the reasons I was always skeptical that a car would be hidden near the obvious Suck Creek Road ramp.

    To me it sounds like Mr. Hoss is "prepping" the general public that GP may never be seen again. Hence the use of the word IF she reappears...whereas before she loved her kids so much she might take them away illegally...and she has been gone for only a month during a period of marital strife....now all of a sudden she is willing to be gone forever and never see her children again. Mr. Hoss also probably had a long talk with MP that their most useful purpose at this point is not to make GP look bad, bc that makes them all look bad, but to make MP look "good". To let things blow over and not cause a ruckus or bring attention to himself either.

    Detailed timeline of events/statements -> 6/2

    Since the news has been slow an trickling, I put together a detailed and cited timeline which (for an enhanced perspective) includes statements as well as established facts. Apologies in advance for any details left out - feel free to add. I read through most of the postings from the 4 threads to piece this together, so thanks to all of you who contributed to that.


    Nov 17, 2010: Signal Mountain Police are called to the Palmgren's home in response to a verbal disorder. Police records show Matthew and Gail Palmgren had an argument over their missing dog. Gail went to spend the night with Matthew's mother at her Mountain Creek apartment. [WS TL LINK]
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Apr 10-11: Durham, who spoke to GP almost daily, said Matthew Palmgren emotionally abused his wife. She suspected physical abuse also took place. On the weekend of April 10, her friend had a black eye. She said, “Oh, I ran into something,” Durham remembers.[LINK]

    Apr 22 (FRI): Police were called again to the home to settle another dispute. Dispute regarding travel in vehicles to lake house - claimed that MP wanted to drive himself to pick up the boat.[LINK]
    The dispute between Mrs. Palmgren and her husband which prompted that call was eventually resolved after both parties “cooled down,” according to a police report filed at the time. [LINK] Mr. Palmgren and his wife were in their car fighting over his refusal to ride with her and their two children “as a family” to their lake house in Alabama. MP “stated that she got mad because he wanted to take the boat down with them and he would have to take the jeep to haul it down there,” according to the incident report. “He stated that she took his jeep key and hid it from him.” He got mad and got out of the vehicle and started to walk home, he told officers. Investigators said GP told them she called 911 “because he wouldn’t get back into the car and started walking home.” [LINK] MP told police he needed the Jeep to haul the boat and his wife got mad and decided to hide the key. So he got out and began walking home, according to the report. Asked about the boat, Durham replied, “That’s full of ####. That boat’s already down here. That boat hasn’t left the lake in three years that I know of,” she said. [LINK]

    Apr 23 (SAT): MP claims that GP removed over $30,000 in items from the residence, including her jewelry, his jewelry and jewelry belonging to his family. [LINK]

    Apr 24-28 (dates?): Susie Button described Gail Palmgren as being upset in days leading up to 4/30. She also says Gail asked her to hold her passport and cash in her home. Other neighbors describe being asked to hold onto other personal belongings. [LINK]

    Apr 29 (FRI): Police were dispatched to SMPS amidst GP and MP being in an argument at the Signal Mountain Police station. GP and her children left to go to the family's lake house in Alabama. GP was also given phone numbers of a safe place to stay. [LINK] That dispute was resolved when “Matthew Palmgren agreed to stay at 40 Ridge Rock Drive and let Gail Palmgren take their two children . . . to their lake house in Alabama for the night,” police said in their incident report. [LINK] Durham said Gail Palmgren made an unexpected trip to Alabama on April 29 [LINK]

    Apr 29: (FRI) 1:49 PM Text (2:49 EST?) from Gail to Arlene Dunham, “Headed down...call say little.” ... Durham said she called Palmgren and Palmgren asked if Durham could meet in Wetumpka. “She asked me if we could go some place happy,” Durham said. “I could tell something was bothering her.” [LINK] The Palmgrens have a home on Lake Jordan, as well as a rental home in Titus, according to Nichols. “The lake home is where Gail would go to relax,” said her sister. [LINK]

    Apr 29: (FRI evening) GP stopped at Arlene Durham's home in Titus, AL (Lake Jordan) just north of Wetumpka. Arlene Durham, said she saw Gail Palmgren and the children the night of April 29. “She was very upset and very worried. You could tell something was the matter,” she said. “She wouldn’t talk because the kids were here.” [LINK]

    Apr 30: (SAT 6:30 AM) GP last(?) spoke to her sister Diane Nichols around 6:30 a.m. telling her sister that she was leaving her Lake Jordan home heading to her home in Signal Mountain [LINK]

    Apr 30: (SAT 12:15 PM) Gail brought children & family’s dogs home to Signal Mountain, TN, then left without driver's license or credit cards - but presumably with her phone. "I saw her leaving around 12:15 that afternoon and I ran up the hill to say hi, because I knew she'd been upset for quite a while. Things have been going on at the house," said neighbor Susie Button. "She just drove away, she never even acknowledged me." [LINK] Did GP also speak with her sister again at 12:15? [LINK]

    Apr 30: (SAT) MP says he proposed to meet Mrs. Palmgren at the residence on April 30, but when he arrived she was gone, having left the two children "by themselves without any supervision." [LINK] Matt P. said he was at his mothers (25 minutes away) prior to returning to the home.


    May 2: (MON) GP's sister, Diane Nichols, calls Signal Mountain Police from her home in New York. Nichols reports not hearing from Gail, and requests a welfare check and files a missing persons report. An officer drove to the Palmgren's home. No one was home and there were no signs of foul play.

    May 2: (MON) MP reports GP missing. MP reports she was last seen on April 30, when she dropped off their two children at the family home on Ridgerock Drive after spending a night with them 4/29 at the family's lake house in Alabama. [LINK]

    May 2: (MON) appx 5:00 PM this day [F4J timeline], in an area near the north base of Signal Mountain is last time there was activity on the cellphone.


    May 4: (WED) MP claims he received a notice from the Post Office indicating GP had entered a change of address form dated April 30. [LINK]

    May 2-5 (date?) Palmgren presumably hires Davis & Hoss (Criminal Defense attorneys) at some point prior to filing on 5/6. He hires a PI on the same day.
    Palmgren said he has hired private investigator Matthew Mathis, who formerly worked as the head of major crimes and in internal affairs at the Chattanooga Police Department, to help locate his estranged wife. [LINK] Former officer, now private investigator Mike Mathis working w/ Matthew Palmgren & attorneys. Says he was hired same day as Davis & Hoss.[LINK]

    May 6: (FRI 9:19 AM) via attorney Hoss, [[ame="http://websleuths.com/forums/showpost.php?p=6505484&postcount=300"]LINK[/ame]] MP filed in Hamilton County Chancery Court for legal separation and temporary custody of the children: MP claimed his wife had been under care for depression and had become more paranoid recently. MP claims his wife had removed passports from the home and he fears his wife could remove the children from the country. [LINK] ...filed a restraining order, a request for custody of the couple's children, and possession of their home [LINK] he said his wife suffered from depression and was prescribed several medications [LINK] He said he was notified that she had changed her pin number to three bank accounts in her name. He said the accounts contain approximately $420,000. He said at least two of the accounts totaling over $320,000 "are marital property." Mr. Palmgren said his wife had removed passports from the home and he feared his wife could remove the children from the country.

    May 11: (WED) "Absolutely not," said Diane Nichols (GP sister), when asked if her sister has a history of mental illness, "she is a very intelligent person, healthy, has two kids at home, she loves those kids, this is unusual." [LINK]

    May 16: (MON) MP's attorney confirms he has been placed on administrative leave from his job at Blue Cross, Blue Shield in connection to his wife's disappearance. Matthew Palmgren has not been charged with a crime, or named as a suspect. [LINK]

    May 16: (MON) Days before she went missing, GP confided in her friend SB that she felt someone was following her. "I would keep seeing the same car coming in and just turning around and stopping at one of the houses. So that was strange in itself. So after she would say that, I I started thinking and I could believe that could be true," said Button. Palmgren also told Button about problems she was having with her husband. "He was having an affair with a co-worker at Blue Cross Blue Shield," Button said. [LINK]


    May 17: (TUE) GP suspected her husband was having an affair, according to friends and family, and had discovered hotel invoices from the DoubleTree hotel and a Hampton Inn in Chattanooga, invoices that showed his name and that he had paid in cash. “There was talk about that. She had no proof at that point,” Nichols said. “She did mention she found some things and she was going to further investigate it. She may have found something. She could have gotten concrete proof.” [LINK]

    May 17: (TUE) press conference HCSO; MP and both attorneys, Lee Davis and Bryan Hoss, are present [LINK] . Diane Nichols and her husband present. MP: "the jeep has been spotted a few times out there so we're asking for anybody who's seen that to immediately contact their local police and let us know to get more clues to where Gail could be. So...for myself, we've done everything in our power to finding Gail. We've hired a private investigator, we continue to look, we're turning over everything we can" [[ame="http://websleuths.com/forums/showpost.php?p=6502732&postcount=209"]LINK[/ame]] The Sheriff's Office says there have been reports of possible sightings of Palmgren's Jeep Rubicon in Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama, but none of the sightings have been substantiated or confirmed. [LINK]

    May 17: (TUE) Palmgren’s attorney, Bryan Hoss, filed a motion Tuesday to continue the order because Gail has not been located and is considered a missing person by authorities. A chancellor is scheduled to rule on the order on June 3. [LINK]

    May 17: (TUE) Letter from Matt Palmgren to Arlene Durham:
    RE: Return of Property
    Via: Hand Delivery
    Arlene: It is my understanding that you are in possession of a Security System DVR that you picked up from Best Buy in Pratville, AL, on May 2, 2011. This is my property. Please give this DVR Mike Mathis, who is the private investigator whom I have hired on my behalf. I have asked Mr. Mathis to deliver this letter to you.
    Further, if you should have any other property that belongs to me or to Gail, please give the same to Mike Mathis as well.
    Sincerely, Matthew Palmgren

    May 19: (THU) Elmore County (AL) Sheriff Bill Franklin said three investigators from Tennessee were in Elmore County Thursday morning. “They were down here to try to find out what they could, and we provided them with any information we could,” Franklin said. [LINK]

    May 22: (SUN) about 50 local volunteers crisscrossed Signal Mountain roads and trails Sunday in search of the GP's crimson Jeep Rubicon — or any other clue that may lead to her. Volunteers, most in cars, others on ATVs or horses and several on foot, scoured a 30 square-mile region. The search came up empty but fulfilled the goal of “crossing Signal Mountain off our list"...Several participants said Palmgren’s husband, Matthew Palmgren, did not take part in the search. He could not be reached for comment Sunday but said earlier he has hired a private investigator to look for his wife. [LINK]

    May 23: (MON) Friends of Gail Palmgren organized their first search effort in Wetumpka, AL today, spreading the word about her disappearance...Those closest to Gail Palmgren will not give up, from her hometown of Signal Mountain, Tennessee to her vacation getaway of Wetumpka, Alabama, they are doing what they can. Durham will drive from Elmore County to the Chattanooga area tomorrow where she says she will spend the next three weeks looking for her friend. [LINK]


    May 24: (TUE) River search for missing woman's Jeep turns up nothing. Crews used highly accurate side-scan sonar to navigate the 50 foot waters Tuesday morning. The search lasted two hours and covered a quarter mile stretch of the river. Electronic images returned parts of vehicles, some 30 years old, but not Palmgren's Jeep Rubicon. [LINK]

    Jun 1: (WED) MP drops all his lawsuits against GP: a nonsuit was filed to voluntarily dismiss motions for custody and legal separation. [LINK] “The fear before was she could appear and take the kids out of school,” Hoss said. “If and when she does reappear, it’s one of those things we can refile and get in front of the same judge rather quickly.” [LINK]

    Maybe the PI found the activity when checking her financials....??

    I'm having thoughts IF alleged gf was caught on video snooping around. I don't think MP would have granted her access to the place if he knew there were surveillance cameras...unless he or she forgot to adjust* them?

    TIA..

    MP's current position: •Director, Government Business and Emerging Markets at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee (per his linkedin profile).

    BCBS Member company news dated July 10, 2009

    (Excerpt) CHATTANOOGA — Matthew C. Palmgren, Pharm D., recently joined BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee as director of pharmacy programs for its government business and emerging markets business unit.

    In this role, he will be responsible for the pharmacy programs in BlueCross' Senior Care Division, which serves Medicare Advantage and Part D members, and Volunteer State Health Plan, which oversees TennCare and Cover Tennessee programs.

    "Matt brings a great deal of experience to his new role here at BlueCross," said Dr. Terry Shea, director of pharmacy services. "We're eager for him to share his ideas and innovations with us as we continue to strive for excellence in the government business sector."


    They do not state who he would be working with, but recently BCBS lost the local contract to Cigna (article below). With this being the headquarters for the state of Tennessee, I assume he would manage employees in that department statewide, as well as deal with the government business sector.

    Another completely erroneous article from BCBS that seemed interesting.
