    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    I wanted to get this up because the investigation of Shannon Rippy's disappearance from Wilmington led to the discovery of a body that is not Shannon. James Opleton Bradley has been charged with murdering Rippy, whose body has not been located as of this post. Bradley was previously convicted for murdering his stepdaughter. He served time in prison and was released in early 2013. At the end of his term, he was held at a correctional center located less than two miles from where Elisha Tucker was known to hang out.

    Thanks for starting this thread, CluelessWonder.

    Just to add that somebody started a Facebook page in her name. Not much there, but worth adding to the thread.

    Bumping for Elisha! I hope we hear some news soon about the identity of the woman found during the search for Shannon Rippy. Someone's family will have closure. possibly Elisha's.

    It may take some days to get the familial DNA information for the body found during the search for Shannon. I get the impression that Elisha had been through some hard times. Perhaps she's okay and will contact her family to ease their worry as they wait for news. Either way, some family is going to be devastated soon.

    Today's news...

    http://www.starnewsonline.com/articl...1177?p=1&tc=pg

    Waldron said Tucker, who lived in the Hillcrest public housing community off Dawson Street in Wilmington, was en route to Florida with a friend named Andy when the two stopped by Waldron's home Aug. 15.

    "She was so happy," Waldron recalled. "She said, ‘I love you mommy and I'll call you tomorrow,' and the next day when I called, (Andy) said they got into an argument and he dropped her back off at Hillcrest."

    Two months passed before Waldron reported her daughter missing. Initially Waldron wasn't concerned because Tucker had no phone so it wasn't unusual for her to be out of contact for a couple of weeks. But as the weeks wore on and the silence continued, Waldron became worried.

    When she did report her daughter missing Oct. 21, police were able to confirm Tucker had returned to Hillcrest, Waldron said. Beyond that, Tucker's whereabouts have been unknown and police had no leads.

    Catching up from Shannon's thread, this post has been removed from CL.

    Would any of you be able to paraphrase?

    Thank you

    Based on my searching, it appears there was no mention of her or Shannon Rippy on any of the news sites today.
