    I agree with you 100%. The drastic and illegal things I'm talking about are erasing her past and using illegal means to change her identity. I believe the past she was running from was terrible for her, not that she did something terrible. (I apologize for being unclear on that point).

    Some publicity, it was a published article (don't remember the publication) and it was discussed in a podcast.

    At least one person has (if true). See post #10 above for a summary.

    It would explain the lack of family. But why change her name?

    For me in reading this case, I have both inferred but also sort of made an assumption that when trying to think about why LEK made decisions, being logical may not be the correct way to find the answer, because her reasons for making her decisions may not have been logical. It's been awhile since I've read through the facts of the case, but I just remember it really striking me as though she was dealing with mental illness beyond just depression and anxiety. While I completely understand the possibility that she was hiding to escape a dark past (and furthermore protect her daughter from it), my gut feeling just happens to be that she was catastrophizing. I think that whatever she was running from felt genuinely insurmountable to her, but I also think that the threat was greatly exaggerated in her mind. This is part of what makes the story so particularly heartbreaking.

    It's possible nobody is looking for this woman. Perhaps she did not even attend school as a child. Perhaps one or both parents were also mentally ill and one committed suicide. There have been cases of extremely reclusive families who do not stay I contact with relatives to the point that they dont even know about a child.
    I do wonder about her siblings, if any.
    In any case, very sad story all around.

    I've just stumbled across a Becky Sue Turner thread and seen the photo of BST's dad for the first time - wow he looks like Lori!

    I need to go back and suss out why there is even a thread for Becky, is it just because of the ID change link to this case? Or is there a separate reason? She died in a fire, right?

    I sincerely apologize but I am having trouble posting, only part of them are gett8ng posted.
    I think also it was extremely to steal someones SS. Was she running from a past that was so scary she felt a name change was not enough? Is that why she walked the perimeter of her property, and did not speak to neighbors? Was she raised in a very strict, reclusive, religious environment? Why did she dress so matronly, and when the future in laws wanted to make a marriage announcement state "we don't do that" Who is "we"? Or was she afraid s9meone would see her picture? Did she come to believe her in laws were trying to out her? She seemed to be very frightened and overly cautious, I don't know if that was due to mental illness or an extremely horrible past.
    Again sorry for all the posts.

    Also odd that she researched THEIR genealogy for hours...not strange that Blake brought his twin brother to counseling . Not strange to them, because his brother probably 'translated' for his twin his whole life. It seems like Blake may have had trouble expressing himself. Sometimes twins have that special connection. Not appropriate for couńseling but they may have been so used to it they never gave it a second thought? Just trying to figure this out..

    I dont suppose they had any computer forensics done to see what all she had been researching? Maybe she found her real self on the internet and started freaking out. jmo

    (in
    Velling stated in the article that the computers were searched and they did not find anything (in their opinion) that was a red flag.
    However, I bet if some of the people here on WS got to search her computers they might have something or made some connections. It would be like having fresh eyes and someone with a different outlook looking into her stuff.

    It's very strange that she was researching his family. They already knew their own family history. Someone had already written material about it.

    The news paper article states why the brother attended counselling with his brother. If his brother is not a communicator and neither is FLEK, their counselling sessions would not be productive. It's not a twin issue. FLEK had one-on-one sessions, but as noted by the counsellor, it got no where due to her possible mental health issues. How much can you talk about if you are trying so hard to keep a now deeply rooted secret. You can't attend counselling sessions and keep secrets. What could FLEK say, "I lied to my husband about my legal identity. His parents are right in their suspicions, there really is something strange going on. I'm afraid they'll uncover my lies. I'm afraid I could lose my child as a result. I'm afraid I could lose my husband. I'm afraid of being reunited with the people I'm avoiding. I'm afraid of the Turner family finding out I used their deceased child's identity as a starting point." Not the sort of thing one shares with a counsellor who values openness and honesty in a marriage.

    If I'm not mistaken, look at BST birth certificate and you'll see she had no ss# listed on it, this would have been the perfect certificate to use, then note she got a ss# after the LEK name change, if I'm wrong on this I apologize, but that's the way I remember it, but there is sooooo much to try to remember, oh and at times I kinda want to think she really was BST
