    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........"

    "The values and the relationships of the people I love around me are my real riches. That's my lasting wealth." -Former NBA basketball player Larry Sanders who walked away from the NBA and $21 million.

    Please continue here and remember the rules. You can find them right here:

    The Rules - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community

    AND don't overlook these!!!!

    Victim Friendly

    Websleuths is a victim friendly forum. Attacking or bashing a victim is not allowed. Discussing victim behavior, good or bad is fine, but do so in a civl and constructive way and ONLY IF IT IS RELEVANT TO THE CASE. Additionally, sleuthing family members that are not suspect is not allowed. Don't make random accusations or post personal information (even if it is public) like parking tickets, address, or first and last names of all their relatives and their neighbors. Also, never "bash" or attack them, or accuse them of involvement. However that does not mean that family members cannot come into discussion as the facts and issues of the case are discussed.


    Social Networks

    Regarding Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and other social networking or blog websites: Links may be used to direct posters to view something on a social networking page. But postings on social networking sites are not considered fact; they are rumor. Copying and pasting, or taking screen caps, directly from these pages is not allowed. Paraphrasing is okay. (Exception: If the Twitter or Facebook post belongs to a verified news station, it may be copied. But a link should still be provided.)

    Also, social networking pages may only be linked if they are directly related to a case, i.e. the victim or suspect. We don't want to post to someone's mother, brother, employer, milkman, or postal carrier just because they know the main player. We also NEVER link to minor's pages (unless they are the victim). And be sure that the page actually belongs to the person being discussed. Do not link to someone if you are not 100% sure it is the correct person. And if a social networking is set to private and you get in the back way, you may not post what you find. Private means private!

    MINORS: Websleuths.com™ does not allow the naming of, or photographs of, minors (children under the age of 18) on the Site unless the child is a missing or deceased person or where law enforcement has identified the minor as a perpetrator of a crime and the minor will be tried as an adult. If a missing child is found and it is learned that such minor was the victim of child exploitation, references to the child’s name and likeness will be removed, and further posting of such information will not be allowed.

    We do not have any POI's or suspects in this case, there should be no sleuthing of anyone except Leanne.

    Thanks,

    Cat

    Again, Josh is not a suspect or POI so no sleuthing or intimating he is responsible unless or until MSM and LE state it as such.

    No more bickering! If you do not like a post, alert it with the little red triangle in the upper right hand corner of the post and move on, do not respond.

    The speculation about Leanne's husband stops now. This is not the first warning about this. You can discuss the leaving theory but until or unless there is something pointing to Josh being the reason we are not going there. .

    The Mod Squad takes time in our new cases to educate our new members and to acclimate our veteran members to the case rules. Please know that the education process is over and now it's time to take more responsibility for what you are posting. Many posts have been removed due to rule infractions and we've given warnings, closed threads and sent PMs. That phase is over. From this point, I will be reviewing infractions on a one by one basis and if I see infractions, members may find themselves on the outside looking in. Please don't let that happen because it's better to have a constructive discussion with everyone in place.

    This has been the most frequent problem in this case, accusing victims. But, you are responsible for knowing ALL the forum rules, of which 98% of them can be found at the link:

    Websleuths is a victim friendly forum. Attacking or bashing a victim is not allowed. Discussing victim behavior, good or bad is fine, but do so in a civil and constructive way and ONLY IF IT IS RELEVANT TO THE CASE.

    No I don't think so. Maybe it's a bit similar but the feeling of uprootedness upon returning is definitely stronger because it is unexpected. At least for me it was like that, I would have to widely speculate whether this might be true for Leanne and I don't know anything much at all about her life pre-trip. She might have had the urge to escape her corporate lifestyle, or not, I just don't know.

    Even though Leanne's intention was to take a walk, she could have been talked into accepting a ride from a neighbor or aquaintance. As mentioned in The Gift of Fear, recommend below by liltexans, a determined perp uses certain conversational techniques to make a potential victim feel guilty about saying No. This plays on the people-pleasing nature of many women, including Leanne. Perps will counter a "No thank you" with something like "You don't need to be afraid of me. I'm just trying to help." That puts the victim on the defensive, trying to prove they don't have suspicions and aren't unduly paranoid. It's a very subtle form of pressure that works all too often.

You must be able to hear and listen to your own intuition and to trust that you will sense when you are in danger. It's a wonderful book.
    I second your recommendation! After Whitney Heichel's murder here in Oregon, I told all my young friends about The Gift of Fear. IMO it's a bit wordy, but well worth reading. Washington Post advice columnist Carolyn Hax mentions this book a LOT, for good reason. Women are raised to be polite and compliant so they won't be viewed as rude. It's not considered polite to be wary of casual acquaintances or someone offering help. So we walk right into danger to prove we're "nice." I can see Leanne letting down her guard and doing this, even though she had learned to be wary on their trip.

    Actually, I recall reading a comment attributed to JB regarding her nose. IIRC, it was something about his being smaller...

    I see what you mean. But just to clarify, this is just speculation, right?

    What I'm saying is I don't see her trying to get over a wire fence and going onto cactus and brush land with no trail not even knowing where she would be going.
    Beats me what LB would do or wouldn't do. I didn't grow up in Georgia, as she did or to know anything about that.

    Same thing here in NM. I did have a guy jump my fence. My bull went after him. Funniest thing I've ever seen with some random guy beating feet away from a ticced off bull. I did call LE and report that guy but I was LMAO at the same time.

    I hope LE is still investigating Leanne's disappearance.

    No it was about her's being smaller and between the two their kids would have a normal nose. It is in their blog if you need the details. I forget the measurements, but she posted them. It was a cute statement. jmo
    My prayers are for the innocent.
