    FL - Dr Teresa Sievers, 46, murdered in home, Bonita Springs, June 2015 *ARRESTS* #9

    Mystery as doctor is killed in her Florida home while her husband and children were out of town
    June 30, 2015



    Missouri man to be charged with Sievers murder
    Aug 27, 2015

    We have confirmed Jimmy Rodgers was arrested in Missouri on a federal probation violation.

    'Hammer'

    Some who knew him in Missouri say Rodgers claimed to be a hit man.

    Second Missouri man arrested in Sievers murder
    Aug 27, 2015

    Two Missouri men have been arrested and charged with the murder of Bonita Springs doctor, Teresa Sievers.

    Jimmy Rodgers and Curtis Wayne Wright were taken into custody and have been charged for Sievers murder, according to Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott. Wright has been charged with second-degree murder.

    ~~~

    Rodgers lived at a home 1,200 miles from Bonita Springs in the small town of Cadet, Missouri. Neighbors say Rodgers was well known.

    When we visited the home, Rodger’s girlfriend’s family explained how they learned about the horrific murder. They say he confessed to the killings earlier this week, and even pointed her to where he hid the evidence.

    "Evidently quite a bit of evidence. He brought it all here and threw it away and told Taylor where it was. I think they found the bloody jumpsuit he wore," said Cathy Gaston, a family member.

    His girlfriend then told investigators when they moved in for an arrest.

    Please review and remember the following:

It has been confirmed that he was employed as the IT specialist for Dr. Sievers practice. It has been confirmed by Dr. Siever's sister that Mark has not contacted her since the arrest of his close friend that is charged with murdering her sister. There's more but I'm not going to list them all here. The connections are there. And the connections are confirmed between CWW and JR. We can't possibly expect people to not speculate how those close connections may be related to solving this case. That's what sleuths do - follow the trail of breadcrumbs to hopefully connect the dots. It's a natural curiosity. Sure doesn't mean anyone is correct in their speculations. (And fwiw, neither JR OR CWW were publicly named POIs before their arrest yesterday.)

    Also, I have seen some excellent posts expressing very plausible theories that have nothing to do with Mark being involved with the murder of his wife. This is the beauty of Websleuths - remain open-minded while reading and consider ALL theories then give them the weight one feels they deserve.

    The line is drawn here:

    No posting of anything ascertained through sleuthing regarding Mr. Sievers, including public records. If info has been reported by MSM, it's okay, otherwise not okay.
    Any questions about posting, please message a moderator before posting.

    Thanks.

    Not sure if this had been posted before, JR's original Federal Warrant:

    POI / Suspect REPOSTING

    Legal question:

    Anyone not being named a suspect/poi but questioned by the press like "Did you kill your wife?", are there any legal implications to hindering an investigation or to further developing a suspect, if the individual in question actually is the future suspect?

    Thoughts?

    Bringing my post over from the closed thread ......

    My thoughts:

    I would guess that most, if not all, of us here at WS have been so impressed with what we have learned about Dr. Teresa Sievers - we've even come to know her a little more from snippets posted by some relatives and patients who were kind enough to share. I truly believe that we feel so strongly over this heinous crime that all we want is justice. We don't have all the facts yet, so I'm sure some of our discussions are quite speculative, but from experience that's what posters do here at WS. We post links to articles, news programs and videos. We provide as much fact as we can, and from there we sleuth, hopefully without violating the TOS. It would be hard for anyone who knew Dr. Sievers to read some of the speculation, but I hope everyone understands that we are not trying to condemn, we are offering our opinions based on what we know and how the facts are related. It's obvious from reading the posts that many of us have differing opinions, but I personally enjoy hearing other people's ideas, even if they aren't the same as mine. I hope those who are feeling uncomfortable will reconsider and continue to post - your input has certainly helped me understand Dr. Sievers and what she had accomplished. By the way, there is no disrespect meant by calling her TS on this forum / it's for expediency that we abbreviate people's names. Thank you ... and, these are only my opinions for what they're worth

    I'm taking the neighbors comment on seeing MS at R's trailer with a grain of salt, much like the "I heard a high pitched shrill". I do think Scott's (sort-of) shoulder shrug about it, was playing into his connectivity theme he's mentioned on numerous occasions. He's playing a cat and mouse game... and rattling someone's cage. IMO

    I'd like to share my thoughts/opinions regarding the Missouri neighbor, who reported spotting MS at JR's trailer, and I invite others to do the same. I'm really interested in hearing anyone's thoughts, which will undoubtedly vary. Eyewitness testimony is notoriously unreliable, and the exact setting, time, and all circumstances of the eyewitness account should be examined thoroughly.

    The only information given is that a neighbor reported spotting MS at JR's trailer, which report was confirmed by the Sheriff, who did not confirm the veracity of the statement. Moreover, the word "spotted" implies some distance between the witness and the person who was allegedly "spotted", as well as a sighting that was very brief.

    Strictly relying upon what has been published about the fact that the neighbor reported seeing MS at JR's trailer, I do not put any weight on this witness' sighting at all. More information is needed, and certainly I have questions, the answers to which are unknown by the public at this time. For example,
    - From what distance did the neighbor allegedly "spot" MS at JR's trailer?
    - What time of day?
    - What were the weather conditions, visibility factors, etc.?
    - How long did the alleged sighting last?
    - Was the neighbor and/or MS in a moving vehicle during the time of the alleged sighting?
    - Was anything obstructing the neighbor's line of vision?
    - Does the neighbor have vision problems? Is she/he prescribed vision aids? If so, was she/he wearing them at the time?
    - Very importantly, did she personally know MS in order to recognize him? If so, how well? On how many occasions had he/she seen him prior to the alleged sighting? Had they every spoken to one another, socialized, etc.?
    - Was the neighbor also on the property at the time of the alleged sighting?
    - Did the neighbor interact with MS at the time of the alleged sighting?
    - Does the neighbor know CWW? If so, how? How well? Had she ever seen CWW? How recently?
    - If the neighbor did not know MS prior to the alleged sighting, did someone tell her the person allegedly "spotted" was MS? If so, who?
    - Is it possible that the man the neighbor allegedly saw was in fact CWW or someone else who also looked very much like MS?
    - Did the neighbor also "spot" CWW there at the same time as MS?
    - When did the neighbor first realize that she/he had "spotted" MS at JR's trailer? At the time of the alleged sighting? After? How long after? Before the arrest(s)? After the arrests?
    - When the neighbor realized that it was MS he/she allegedly "spotted" at JR's trailer, what triggered the realization/recognition? Personal knowledge of MS, coupled with instant recognition? Or did the recognition/realization occur at a time after the alleged sighting, and if so, what triggered the recognition/realization? A photo in the news (such as t.v. or publication)? Or maybe in a photographic lineup provided by law enforcement?
    - Any bias or self-serving interests?

    The sheriff in this case is completely responsible, in my opinion, for putting and keeping Teresa's husband under suspicion for many of us. Some of us have followed cases for many years and when law enforcement will not say whether or not a family member is cooperating, and will not say they are not a suspect...they almost always are NOT cooperating and are indeed a suspect. I take my cue from LE in every case, and in this one, they certainly have said or done nothing to relieve MS of any suspicion of his involvement, as far as the public perception is concerned.

    Most of us, Imo, would love to be able to believe that this is not yet another case of spousal murder. But in cases I have seen where the spouse is not considered a POI, and indeed turns out to be innocent, LE has generally been quick to say so.

    Just my opinion, of course.

    Excellent questions! These are the questions that we at WS should ask about any sighting or piece of information (as LE and any defense attorney would do), especially your last question. The trouble is, we have no way of knowing the answers. But just asking the questions should at least slow down acceptance of statements as absolute truth supporting our opinion. While each piece of information (verified or not) may tip the scale, so far, we have nothing that can absolutely pin anything on MS. Personally, I've taken up residence on the fence for now. JMO

But, if the police were already there, then who called them? That would be hinkey to the hilt for me.

    We also, as we go to air tonight, clear a tan-colored Chevy Avalanche that we learned had been taken away from the scene. Let`s see a picture of

    the Chevy Avalanche. That Avalanche belonging to a co-worker that had actually come over to the home when she, Dr. Sievers, did not report to

    work that morning. That was a co-worker`s car that came to check on her. It has no relation to the murder investigation.

    I disagree to a certain extent--The sheriff is sure not completely responsible, in my opinion, for putting and keeping Teresa's husband under suspicion
    . He is responsible for that himself. He has never made a public plea to find the killer(s),he is best friends with someone who has been arrested for the murder,he has not contacted AL since his best friend was arrested, and a whole bunch of other things that many,many POI,or spouses of murder victims have done. LE has not said or done nothing to relieve MS of any suspicion of his involvement, as far as the public perception is concerned,because that is impossible to do at this time.

    I posted about AtTheLake's STUNNINGLY SUPERB post: She posted a reminder that the local reporters (the 'trusted' & seasoned ones, for sure) VERY LIKELY know a WHOLE LOT MORE about this 'whodunnit' than they let on. MY POINT IS THAT: Sadly, very sadly, IMO, that reporter who badgered Mark Sievers (when he was in the parking lot, ear buds, possible stethoscope, illegally holding small trash bags out of his Mercedes car window while driving...) and said 'DID YOU MURDER TERESA/YOUR WIFE?' very, very, very likely knows the answer (and it's not a happy answer ..........). See, my reasoning is that if the reporter KNEW Mark Sievers had nothing at all to do with this, then it would have been wickedly cruel to say such a thing up close/mic'/on camera to a grieving widower with two little girls to raise. In other words: Bigtime clue we just got that Mark Sievers is guilty.

    EXCEPT I could never 'turn tears on/off' as they say Mark Sievers does every single day. That sure seemed very real to me.

    AND Mark Sievers driving around in that new Mercedes IMO is an indicator that either he truly is innocent OR ELSE he is so very attached to being seen driving around in a very costly car (Narcissism) that he is unable to stop & think rationally that him in that hot car is NOT 'good press' for him. IMO Mark Sievers would be far better off running around town on a used moped.

    OH AND BTW, I found this social study on people who choose to buy & drive a new Mercedes Benz: Us 'onlookers/gawkers' are said to think the driver has got a big pile of money & is very well educated & 'a success in life'. See: [PDF]He Looks Six Years Younger in that Porsche - Canadian ...
