    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."

    That's strange, how she was reported a day after last seen at the school and missing meetings, but not by Edna Randolph.

    Can you make sense of that?

    Agree. The principal of a school is like a main doctor at the doctors office.

    Jmo.

    They are usually missed and reported missing fairly quickly. Jmo.

    So it is definitely strange.

    But I am glad that at least we know now and not years from now. So hopefully this gets solved quickly.

    Agreed. I hope so too. School starts next week for her kids.

    “There are no obvious signs of foul play,” Franklin police Sgt. Philip Rizzo added. “Our detectives are using all the tools at their disposal in an effort to locate Ms. Dyer.”

    From what I have read Sheri Dyer and Edna Randolph are both her sisters. I'm not sure why someone pointed out that it was strange she wasn't reported by Edna Randolph. Is there information about Edna that was not in the links provided? Sheri has mentioned that she hopes this isn't a hostage situation. Is this area of NJ dangerous? Have people been taken hostage from their homes there before? Hopefully the ATM records or CC use will help to determine if she is traveling alone or if someone else is with her.

    I don't know about Franklin twp, but Newark, where she works, is one of the worst cities in NJ.

    That was me, AND. It was before much else was known and I had the impression ER lived with her, as opposed to family. That was clarified and I removed it from my post, but Dexie was too fast for me.

    The specific alley Principal Dyer parked her car was said to have been the site of a triple murder, it was mentioned in one of the MSM upthread. Her sister recalled that she'd always cautioned Principal Dyer about parking there.

    It's interesting that her bathroom lights were said to be left on. The valuables in a bathroom are usually prescription meds, possibly, if this if foul play.

    She was also said to suffer from headaches, by her sister, who must be frantic and tired. She's been great about updating MSM. Hopefully they'll know more soon.

    I haven't had the chance yet to read too many articles yet, but the story is getting attention in the media here which is good. Scary stuff about the homicides but not surprising unfortunately. Most areas of Newark are no stranger to car theft, guns, violence, and murder. I have a wedding in Newark this weekend and will be thinking about principal dyer and hoping she is located ASAP.
