I'm thinking that's what happened. Even a court appointed atty can get a bond reduced pretty easily. However, when you find out the guy who lives 3 doors down is a convicted sex offender (sodomized 2 boys under 12) lives with his mother, you realize sometimes family stands behind family no matter what.
Eta: I would think he'd save any negotiating power he may have for a leniency in sentencing and/or dropped/lowered charges.
The Military can also Court Marshall him on this charges!!!
MPD Cpl. Chris Levy said he couldn’t go into too much detail out of concern for the department’s investigative techniques, but Wood’s family reported her missing June 2 after she "packed her bags and walked out of the house” May 30.
All we reported to the family is that we had information through our investigation that puts [Wood] in the Grand Bay area or south Mobile County at or around same time [Holland] is committing suicide,”
We’ve got some incomplete answers,” he said, adding that the family did in fact hear from Brittney between the time she left her home and the time she was reported missing.
"That wasn’t originally reported. So there has been some back and forth. Some answers haven’t been entirely accurate,” Levy said.
well that is a little bit of info I was unaware of.

Well, if he had an atty request a reduction there should be a reason for that. His bond was reduced by what 40%? It is not going to be reduced by much more than that if any. His attorney would know that. It would be pointless to have the attorney request it be lowered at all if there is NO possibility of anyone atleast trying to post the bond. I know people who have had friends, cousins, aunts, uncles, and/or grandparents put up THEIR property. So it is still possible he has someone out there that might atleast try.
ETA: I want to clarify that I'm NOT stating that the family is trying to cover something up, I'm just saying, it's a little frustrating. I'm sure even moreso for LE. They cannot run a proper investigation and find this poor girl without ALL of the facts.
No one in the family has heard from her 5/31. The last text was at 1:47 am June 1. She had contact with people on 5/31, which was after she left her mom's. That's what LE is referring to. There's been no contact since.
Info about bag is on her Missing Poster. I guess the size of bag might determine how long she meant to be gone.
I'd like to know if she took her phone charger. I always take my charger when intending to stay overnight. But I know a couple of people who keep charger in purse at all times.
I had ask last night if BW has a tattoo on her lower back. I found a pic of girl calling herself Brittney online in the Tillman Corner area. She has a tat on her lower back surrounded by butterflies. I saw that it was noted in one of the poster that she had a tat on her leg surrounded by butterflies. I just wanted to verify it is on her leg not her lower back.
I never told because I was ashamed, didn't think anyone would believe me or that it would make any difference and I didn't want to make my life anymore messed up than it already was... but more so because I knew my dad would kill someone and go to jail.
I needed & wanted my dad around. My dad wasn't perfect (alcoholic) but my dad lived his life as if the sun did not rise until I did. He loved me more than anything in the entire world.
I told when I was "old enough" (15) and brave enough to stand up for myself and what I thought would happen... happened. I got kicked out of my house and was on my own. My mom's maternal protectiveness lasted maybe 30 minutes. She then announced she wasn't giving up her home that she had invested almost 13 years of her life to so I would have to live somewhere else. She was a real peach.
It makes you tougher, less afraid of terrible things happening to you (what could be worse?)... it does make you think you can overcome things a lot easier than others. That is partially true but it also makes you vulnerable to predators because you just really want someone to love you honestly without hurting you.
Enough about me... I am just trying to illustrate more insight into the mindset of an abused child, family dynamics, how & why secrets are kept by the abused and by the others who know or who may know what is happening.
