    Hopefully, she can provide some telling information about this case. Who to look towards, what to FOR, etc. I'm still on the fence about mom and dad....Praying for the best!!!

    I have no clue how Dr. Randazzo will fit in this case.

    He said he was going to announce as "well-known" expert. Well, I for one had not heard of her before. Has anyone else here?

    Is this a high-net worth family? It's a bit too late for abduction prevention now and I don't see how school shooters apply so I'm hoping that her skills in deception detection come to good use.

    Profiling suspects is the best I can come up with. Helping the family focus on possible leads?

    If she is widely known by others in her field, and since she has done some radio and TV...I'd say that qualifies her as well known. She doesn't seem to be a celebrity chaser, so maybe that's a good thing.

    Criminals aren't always after money.

    You asked if this family had a high net worth. I was addressing that question.

    It was just one example of Dr. Randazzo's areas of expertise that don't fit this case at all.

    It is admirable she wants to help and I am sure her background gives her some insight and understanding in a variety of human circumstances but I would be happier if they had brought in someone who actually had any experience in finding missing children.

    I am going to withhold judgement because we don't have all the facts of this case. She may fit in better than we realize.

    It is also unethical for her to jump into a case where she cannot help. I can't see her risking her professional reputation to become a media queen. She must sincerely believe she has something to offer this family.

    Can she get a confession out of someone? That's the only expertise I care about.
