You know, I really try to scrutinize the info that's put out to the media and thus us. It seems like its all over the map depending on what case and state you are following. I admit I get tainted in what I read in the media. For instance my local media is ALWAYS a day behind in local cases and the facts are so skewed I have even called them to correct it! That said, even though we were all STUNNED in the CA case I do believe that Orange County has very good resources.
I always have to question what LE puts out there on purpose. It's a whole new medium with FB and I'm sure there is a FB task force just reading and watching like us.
I think they will solve this and find Michelle and I hope I am right.
Just find her
When the kids were either in another room or still in the car or something, he likely argued with her and attacked. Went "too far" or didn't think about what he was doing or did and was too enraged to care.
I don't think he had a longstanding plan to kill her. He just "lost it" that day.
I wonder what the kids remember. I wonder if they remember seeing their parents arguing or hearing a strange noise. I think it noteworthy that Dale waited so long to establish "formal" custody arrangements before letting Yvonne, their grandmother who they lived with, have visitation.
They resided with her, and he had been granted custody. There was no harm in allowing the kids to visits grandma prior to a formal visitation agreement. Except, time wreaks havoc on the ability of a three year old to recall things in a chronological fashion or to remember what happened on a specific date.
The short time Yvonne had the kids for was not enough time for her get anything out of them and I'm sure she didn't want to start questioning them right away. If LE has not talked to them, by now I fear it is too late to get anything really usable from them.
The day after mom went missing, or that night, would have been a crucial time to speak with the kids and establish a timeline via their statements, that could be matched up to the last day they saw her. Now, how can the kids be questioned about what happened on a specific date in the past and be expected to give answers with any certainty? They don't understand dates and are probably just beginning to learn about days of the week.

Been thinking about this case all day while I worked (and the quality of that work? Ahem, I wouldn't know, my mind was elsewhere).
Question: It has been stated that DS Jr. worked that day. According to Michelle's family, no-one knew when the People's Court episode was going to air. So who notified DS Jr. that the show was on the air? Perhaps it was his Dad, who also seems to possess a hot temper. Maybe someone else?
Also wonder if this could have happened: DS Jr. is mad, gets home, Michelle arrives. She had just sent her new boyfriend a text at 3:15 p.m. that said she thinking of him, and then he says he responded. That's awfully close to her arrival at 3:18 p.m. to the condo where ex is waiting, angry. Maybe her cell phone was pinging from the text messages? Maybe she was texting him back and DS Jr. grabbed phone, saw the exchanges, etc., adding to his anger? Whatever he did I think he did it out of sight of kids. And then he put the kids in the truck, pulled the Hummer in the garage, and left to his Dad's.
Except I think he took her phone with him, maybe even to monitor the incoming texts, maybe to see who new BF was? At some point he sees a text come in from brother. To this he texts "Waterford" because he's going in opposite direction and it will buy him time.
Also its possible that the window decals weren't removed until the vehicle was dumped. Makes sense actually....drive the Hummer around just a bit hoping someone will remember seeing it; remove the decals afterwards to delay IDing it after you dump it. (how easy is it to get to the cargo area of an H3 from the inside..then you could remove them without being seen.) And skedaddle outta there.

Orlando Police Department Update On Michelle Parker

I think the most important missing link to all of this are his whereabouts on Friday....we all know he wasn't working. So what do you think he was doing? Disposing her body? Moving it from one location to a more remote one, possibly further away? Soo many unanswered questions....
As far as whether or not this was planned, I'm starting to think that in the past, he's probably been mad enough at MP to seriously consider how he would "do away" with her. I don't think he necessarily planned in advance to harm her on the day she disappeared. But I think it's possible that once he snapped, he ended up putting some or most of that plan into effect. MOO
Now as far as the phone, I'm not sure if this was discussed, but is it possible that it could have still pinged once in the water? Like if it was thrown into the water shortly after the 4:26 text to her brother, could it have still had some signal while submerged, then died at the 8:00 "powering down"? Have we heard about any other activity on the phone between 4:26 and 8:00, to indicate it was elsewhere?
May no stone, be left unturned...

Can anyone think of a reason as to why the phone could not have been left in the car, but instead had to be thrown away?
No good reason for phone to end up in the water if a crime did not take place, IMO...and the driver who had last access to the phone did not wish to be tracked...JMO
Just my opinion, of course.
Dale seems to be somewhat nerdy. I would think he would know water wouldn't necessarily kill info on flash memory and should know about pings. Even most non nerds know about cell phone tracking.There's a lot going on with that phone. Something stinks.
