    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."

    The police are expecting foul play based on what the news said this morning. Apparently an observant neighbor noticed that they hadn't seen Bernadine but they had seen strangers using her car.

    I'm curious to know the entirety of what was in the car.

    I'm glad the neighbors reported it. I am concerned with their names vs anonymous being used in the msm as they are possibly able to id those responsible for the homeowners disappearance. I guess if something happens to them down the road they know who may have a part in it.
    ...or maybe I am just being paranoid after reading on here.

    Snipped from the linked article:

    "Jeremy David Gentry, 43, was arrested Thursday, June 23, on charges of grand theft of a motor vehicle.

    According to an arrest affidavit, a witness who lives near Montgomery's home noticed a man, who has since been identified as Gentry, driving the missing woman's vehicle. A registered co-owner of the vehicle was contacted and said Gentry didn't have permission to be in possession of the vehicle, a report states."

    I hate threads for older people like this. It makes me mad someone can prey on such defenseless people.

    It's now officially a homicide investigation:

    Snipped:
    "As a result of the evidence and information gathered through the investigative process, detectives are reclassifying the Bernadine Montgomery case from a missing person to an open homicide investigation," said Lt. Joe Iozzi, of the Leesburg Police Department.

    Missing woman reportedly scammed earlier this year
    Bernadine Montgomery, an 84-year-old missing Leesburg woman, apparently was among a number of customers who claimed they were scammed by a HVAC business.
    According to a Leesburg police report, an All About Water and Solar employee on West Main Street reported on March 3 that she knew at least 13 clients had paid for “thousands of dollars of work” that had not been done.
    However, the employee pointed out work had been done at Montgomery’s Palmore Park home “for large amounts of money.” And a bookcase there had been built for $5,000 that was billed at $26,000.

    "At a news conference Saturday [July 9] morning, Lt. Iozzi said Montgomery was killed in her home by the two suspects, who then took the body to the Palatka area."

    The body has not yet been recovered.

    Prosecutors will seek the death penalty in the first-degree murder trial of David Mariotti if he's found guilty of killing an elderly Leesburg woman in June, Lake County court records show.

    (...)

    Assistant State Attorney Rich Buxman listed five factors the state believes can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. They are that the crime involved the abuse of an elderly person resulting in great bodily harm, that the felony was committed to avoid arrest, it was committed for financial gain, was especially heinous and the victim was vulnerable because of age or disability, records show.
