    A few reminders...

    We do not have any POI's or Suspects named in this case. We will not discuss anyone in this manner until or unless LE does name a POI or suspect.

    We are a victim friendly site, the family (including the boyfriend) are victims. No bashing, sleuthing or talking about them in a suspicious manner.

    Rumors are not allowed. If you are stating something as fact, link to it. You can discuss what is known in main stream media and from law enforcement. You can speculate with what is known at this time only, no wild rumors or speculation.

    Posting or discussing comments from FB or news pages are not allowed.You can suggest checking out the comments section or FB, but it is considered rumor and not discussible here.


    Sex Offenders
    It is illegal to use the sex offender registry information to harass anyone. We would never condone that at Websleuths. However, it is okay if, when a child goes missing or is harmed, we look at the sex offenders in the area and post their information, along with maps to show how close they live to the victim. Never even hint at harassing anyone on the sex offenders list. Any posting here about a sex offender should always be within the law.

    It seems odd to me that they did not do searches since she was taken away in a vehicle. I understand that they would have no idea where to look... but are not MOST of the missing taken away in a vehicle? Unless you have the cases where someone is nabbed off a hiking trail, or maybe a child grabbed and pulled into a house... pretty much the rest are taken away in a vehicle.
    That said... I truly have no idea where they would start looking either, although I expect (assuming she is deceased, which sadly I think is the case) that she is not far from where she was taken..

    I agree cebee. I think a search still should have been done despite the suspicion that she was taken away in a vehicle. Police keep saying that they hold out the hope that she is alive which I feel is good but for some reason I do believe that she is deceased as well. Also a strange thing is that it is believed that she was taken by somebody she knew but IMO she was taken by a stranger who was just waiting for his opportunity. Oh and was there no camera at the gas station?

    Have a good halloween everyone. Here in the Los Angeles area something is happening now that happened recently in west Michigan. Body parts started showing up in various places and they are found to belong to the same body. LE has determined that when this happens someone has put an intact body down a manhole into the waste system. On the way to where it is treated waste is broken up and thus the intact body does not pass through the system. Have the body parts in Michigan been tested for DNA against the people recently missing in Michigan.?

    I mapped this at 37 miles----this number works (for instance, RAT dumped AM's car 39 miles from where she was last seen).

    That seems like a really good place to search! I really wish I had the opportunity to do so, but I would have to travel half way around the earth to get there and I don't have that kind of money!

    But I really appreciate how dedicated you are
    Sometimes Jessica's thread has been eerily quiet. It's nice to see that ppl still care.

    I would imagine the lights were turned off in the back because she was preparing to close up. OR the perp flipped the switch as he grabbed her at the back door, to keep from being seen more easily. I also assume the switch would be right inside the back door, makes sense to me.

    My guess is that this was someone she was acquainted with, maybe someone who was stalking her. She could have recognized them by sight but did not know them well.

    As for searches, it's possible that LE has done some searches without the public's knowledge, in the most likely areas. They generally don't do planned searches unless they have an idea where to look, through tips or other leads. In this case, obviously she could have been taken anywhere in any direction.

    They do sometimes send out teams of officers to look around in certain places and often the public is never aware that these searches are going on because they aren't publicized. Officers can check dumpsters, alleyways, abandoned buildings, all kinds of hiding places while they're out patrolling, and not even appear to be looking for anything specific. So while it may not look like they're searching, they very well may be.

    IIRC; one of the locals went looking for the light switch; could not find it. It's assumed it's in the office.

    something was going on in that gas station that night the 400.00 in her purse sure suggests that. The fact that the money was left behind also tell us it was not a robbery but they went there only to take Jessica.
    I have a few ideas that I wont go into here because it might upset some and get me a TO but it makes total sense to me.

    As I see it she is alive... But where could she be?
    The cash in Jessica's purse doesn't suggest that "something was going on" other than she had been to a bank or the nearby Meijer to cash her paycheck (it was Friday). Nothing odd about that when many young people live paycheck-to-paycheck and pay cash for just about everything, including rent.

    The body parts found in Michigan were in Macomb County. This is in metro-Detroit and not related to Jessica Heeringa's disappearance. Here's the Websleuths' discussion about those Macomb County cases:

    Agree!! There are so many "innocent" reasons to have cash in purse. I sometimes do for different reasons and I have caught myself thinking "I Wonder what this would look like to other ppl" but I have never been doing anything shady or anything that would involve meeting someone behind a gas station in pitch darkness. I really don't think she saw this coming at all.

    Banks may have several reasons not to want to issue a creditcard and for some ppl a debitcard really isn't that much easier than cash.
