    I have no personal experience on "drug deals gone bad," but usually one party is trying to cheat the other - maybe the buyer doesn't have the money or the seller doesn't have all the goods. Probably some folks here who can answer this better than me (not that I'm insinuating that there are druggies here, just read more than me), but this is my idea.

    Hmmm, all my drug deals have gone very well so I can't answer either (kidding, just kidding!!) It would seem that drug deals go "bad" when there is a large amount of drugs and money involved, but as we all know people have been killed for next to nothing. Anybody know if Ben was more of a "small time" dealer? If so, it would seem that his killer(s) would not be smart enough to get away with murder. However if he was in the big leagues, that's a different story.

    How about a MySpace page for Ben? I don't know much about it (yeah, I'm old) but there are several pages there now for the missing. I think that's how the latest lead in the Anna Waters case (here on WS) broke. Just a thought...

    I'm going to make a page for him next week on my space. I just finished the website a couple of days ago, so I'm taking a break for now. I will post a link to it when I get it up.

    I have no information as to whether or not he was small-time or big-time. I do know that he was a known dealer to the Snohomish County Sheriff's Department.

    I just put up the beginnings of a MySpace page for Ben. I want to thank the kind souls who suggested publicly and privately to put up a page for him there. I am beginning to feel encouraged by the response here and in other places on the web. I want to thank the people who have participated in this thread...your insight and ideas are very, very appreciated.

    samhoney - I think it's wonderful that you are working so hard to get Ben's case out there. I hope that there is an answer soon. Every life is precious and Ben's family deserves closure.

    questions

    Hey Sam,

    I've been a lurker for some time now and I've have been following your thread on Ben and I have some questions:

    Did you ever hear anything about the leg found?
    Did you email the people who posted about being safe? I found that post on a message board too but it looked like a crappy board (one poster had a pic of her missing sister and there was spam-like porn site replies).

    Also, I was just up on doe and you are now a source for info on Reuben...congrats!! Shame there isn't much more about him...he seems like a very handsome young man.

    Hi, Emily.

    1.) I have sent two emails to the medical examiner's office and unfortunately, I have not gotten a response.

    2) I have a feeling that the two people who posted are his family. I can't shake the instinct that emailing them would somehow be intrusive. The last thing I want to do is cause them stress. So, no, I haven't emailed them and I don't think I will. :/

    What I do plan on doing is getting in touch with the missing persons unit at the sheriff's office. I'll post what happens with that as events further develop.

    I sent an email to the Sheriff's office yesterday morning about the remains at the ME office. The waiting is the hardest part, according to Tom Petty. All I can do is try. I think about Ben everyday and pray for his family to get their answers that are so long overdue. And hope that someone who knows something will do the right thing for all involved.

    Today is the 16th anniversary of Reuben's disappearance. I'm praying for his family and for the people who know something to come forward and do the right thing.

    If you have the time, please keep Reuben and his family in your thoughts and prayers today. It's going to be really tough for them. Thanks.

    I'm a bit confused, which post are you referring to in the thread? You can tell me the number of the post and I'll take a look and answer your question.

    Hi, Emily..

    1. No, I didn't hear back from the medical examiner or the sheriff's department about the leg. I'm not totally surprised since it is a continuing investigation. They'll keep their cards close to them.
    2. You know, to be honest, I feel wrong about emailing them. I have a feeling they are family/friends of his. The last thing I want to do is upset them by emailing them out of the blue about Ben.
    3. I am so proud and touched that the lady I've been chatting with from doe network feels the site I made is worthy of being a source for his case.

    I can't explain why his case haunts me but it does. And it has for months. This could happen to my little brother or anyone in my family. In any of our families. I thought it was sad that nothing was out there to make people aware of Ben and his case.

    Do you mind if I PM you sometime this weekend about something?

    You can certainly PM me if you'd like...

    Suzanne, I'm not sure the board...I found it searching for stuff about Ben on ask.com or yahoo...but I believe it was something you posted regarding your sister that I saw the replies to that were spam-like porn replies.
