Donnie is dead so it didn't come from him directly.

    Look at the other cases we follow here, the families are forth-coming (unless they are suspects). You have family saying Donnie "wouldn't abuse anyone"....yet abuse allegations are NO JOKE. They don't just order your kids away on a whim. Also, family was saying Donnie would never pick up BW....but yet he did.

    I agree that the drug-use has nothing to do with anything. We have a missing person who is a mother and needs to be home! Same with the fliers---it's horrendous they have been taken down (if that's the case), but we are not there...we do not know who is doing this, if anyone.

    Just my peace
    The confirmation that DH picked up BW is from phone records obtained by LE, not by witnesses or family members. There's been no media coverage since LE released this information, so it's no wonder it's news to people here.

    The problem I see is that the use of the term "family" is too all-encompassing for this group. Obviously there are certain members of the family who are highly suspect for at least their honesty. I tried to be careful to refer to her immediate family or parents. To my knowledge, they're hiding nothing from LE. They've told the good, bad, and the ugly. Anything to help find Brittney.

    I dont think the gov usually gives money to missing adult where no foul play is suspected.

    Now as i see it the person thats now missing goes to see someone and that someone commits suicide and our victim is never seen or heard from again...To me that is a crime.......and should be investigated as such.
    but its not!!! so that says to me LE must know way more than any of us know.

    well damn wow! dh did pick her up? Part of that family just lies to cover themselves (can't say I wouldn't do the same). That means some of them have been lying since this whole thing started. Wonder if the real truth had/would/will be told Britt would already been found.

    Some people have an idea of how things should work in a case like this. Some people have an idea of what organizations like KlaasKids do to support a family.
    Some people have an idea of what the individual family members should be doing.

    The problem with these ideas is they're based on assumption. They're based on other cases, other families in other social and/or economic classes, other cities, other missing people. They're not based on this case, these circumstances. They're not based on real knowledge of what is going on behind the scenes. And it's hurtful.

    Websleuths has been the #1 google hit for the most current info on Brittey Wood since the media coverage ran dry almost 2 weeks ago. So if people come here looking for information, what do they see? Talk of the family knowing more than they're telling (who says and does that mean the whole family or one individual?), talk of posts being deleted from the facebook page (What were the posts about? Help finding Brittney or more of the inflammatory criticisms that help no one?), talk of the family trying to keep the story out of the media?

    I am so disappointed.
    Zeaux,

    I agree with most of what you have said, however, I don't think that websleuths, and please correct me if I am wrong here, was designed to be a "Rah-Rah" site. This is a place where democracy within the bounds of respect for the individuals can be displayed. The very essence of investigating is to question everything. I believe that a lot of the points brought out by posters here are valid questions and, in most cases, they go out of their way to state that it is an opinion or assumption and not a fact. If something is distasteful or out of the bounds of what is permissable then it has been noted and corrected. I share in the family's frustration though I have no idea the amount of suffering they have had to endure the last month or so. I think the greatest blessing and travesty of all is that this site is the #1 google hit for the most current info on Brittney Wood. So sad...

    Respectfully,

    Please accept my apologies, as I indicated in my post it was not meant to be taken personally or by any specific individuals.

    Inthedetails04's post greatly highlights the frustration that I am personally battling and I am not a resident of Alabama or a family member. If I was in their shoes and my son was missing I would probably be locked up in a psych ward from a nervous breakdown.

    I would kill me to think someone would consider my anguish & mental state as that of a parent who was not doing enough or who didn't care.

    Again, it was not directed at you or the other poster but please accept my apologies.

    Absofreakinlutley! Could not have said it better myself.

    It is worth noting that there are specific funds allocated to rewards for missing persons. No government official is going to miss their round of golf at the club or fishing trip from providing those funds for their intended purpose.

    Thank you!

    I dont for one second think her mother or father are hiding anything at all.

    But i do feel a family member is responsible for whatever happend to her
    and thats just My opinion!

    I dont question the sincerity of CW or those in BW's immediate family unit. There are, more than likely, those outside her immediate family unit that are equally as sincere. But, with the contradictory statements made by different ones within this family, speaking generally and loosely, one begs to question "What else are these individuals hiding?"

    Respectfully,
    I'm not saying it should be all "rah rah" or anything like that. I've been on here telling some not so pretty facts about BW's background, but it was all done to provide information that could be used to help find Brittney. That is what I thought this site was for--helping the missing and their loved ones.

    The problem I have is that for many of the assumptions that case a negative light on the "family", I, and sometimes others, have explained the reality to hopefully quash the continued repetition of assumptions. Yet they continue.

    May I ask that when someone is posting and referring to WWH or MWK when talking about "family" being dishonest, holding back information, etc., just say who you're referring to. When the term "family" is used, it implies other people in the family, namely the parents, who have not done anything to be labeled dishonest.

    That is why I said that I agree with most of what you said. I believe that this site was designed to share the details of this case in the hopes of bringing the missing home safely. Personally, I don't care if DH's suicide had anything to do with BW's disappearance or not. If his name had never been included in the original statement of a person she could have been going to see then I would see no reason or relevance in even mentioning it. The same goes for the uncles. My only desire in every word that I post here is to try and offer sound opinions, with others, mixed with the few facts we know. Just remember this, the opinions stated and constant activity here may just be the reason that this site is the #1 google hit, not the facebook page, not twitter, not any other news outlet.

    I agree that the best approach is to say who it is that we are talking about if it is known who said it. I think we are trying to walk a fine line and be respectful concerning WWH and MWH, considering neither has been charged with a crime. The use of "family" is too general and can be damaging to the efforts to gain support for the search.

    I'm curious as to the timing of the abused victim coming forward and the disappearance of BW. (btw, so glad she was brave enough to come forward!)

    question…
    If an abused victim contacts LE reporting the relatives abuse, how long after that would LE/PD make an arrest? (6/19 uncles arrested) TIA

    Not trying to figure out who the victim is or accuse BW of wrongdoing…just having questions about the connections and timing of events (that we have conflicting answers too!) and/or a motive of actions that might have some barring on this case.

    -Was the reporting prompted by BW's disappearance?
    -Did the victim think with BW gone it was the right time to come forward….she was safe to tell?
    -BW knowing about the abuse and encouraged the abused not to tell (scared)?
    -Victim thinking there is a connection and thought telling might bring BW back?
    -BW knew the victim was going to tell and was going to warn DH?
    -Victim wanted the abuse to stop and thought him/they had something to do with BW's disappearance?

    It just feels like there has to be a connection with the disappearance, arrests and suicide….MOO

    so many more questions…so few answers
