    WA - Nicholas Francisco, 28, Seattle, 13 Feb 2008 - #15

    Administration has spent over 2 hours doing maintenance/clean up on Nicholas Francisco thread #14.

    This is sincerely your last warning. We have been over this one too many times.

Action has been taken w/members who have continually disregarded TOS and our prior warnings. If we have to pull this thread again, it will NOT be coming back.

    I suggest every poster read/reread the Rules of the forum.

    Thank you mods for all you do.


    Any further news or ideas anyone?

    this case continues to draw me.

    me? i'm still of the opinion Nicholas Francisco was abducted and what started as horseplay turned into a genuinely scary scenario for him and he is being kept by someone.

    people do have dungeons.

    i realise i'm in the minority here.

    It is interesting that the lawyer and the Pastor are the same person, and that there is quite a bit of coverage over his departure from MH. Incidentally, it is possible he was a marriage counselor as well.

    Not sure if this anything, but who knows.

    It seems very reasonable to me that someone from their previous church would also be someone that would offer, or Christine would turn to, for help. She knows this person's character and that is very important considering all the chaos she was dealing with at the time after Nick's disappearance. Also she probably knew she could trust this lawyer and his family..which would have been something she dearly needed after Nick 's disappearance.

    Floh, I also agree that Nick is probably alive somewhere..either by his own leaving or a meet up that ended up with him as someone's hostage of sorts.

    DeltaDawn:

    I think that makes sense. There did seem to be a lot going on at the church just prior to Nicholas' disappearance. I am sure it has no bearing, but since there is still very little to go on it makes sense to look at everything, especially with the new developments.

    I am personally shocked at the allegations of abuse on Nicholas' part, but was equally shocked by his apparent secret activities. So I guess one never really knows.

    Thanks for everyones input on this case.

    If he left of his own free will, would he not have cleared out his bank accounts, he could have taken some cloths.
    He has children, I just don't see him walking off into the sun and totally abandon every thing

    I was thinking about Nicholas and Christine last night. I always thought she had the deer in the headlight look in a lot of her interviews. Many people said their "hinky" meters went off. Well if she had been being abused but at the time felt she had no way to live without him (more common then some might think) she may have half hoped that he was dead and she would have a way out and half afraid he was alive and had left her. She would have been scared to say the wrong thing and upset him.

    Now as time went on and things were found that she may not have known about and it began to look more like there was a chance he was alive she became even more afraid especially as the information about his "secret" life was made public. She may have known how angry he would be that the information had come out and she knew he would take it out on her. At this point she moved out of the house and hid so he couldn't find her.

    Now that she feels she is in a safe place and hopefully has had people to finally talk to about what has happened in her life she maybe feeling strong enough to finally get on with her life and it is no longer dependent on him being dead or alive.

    Yes if he is dead his body needs to be found but I'm not sure in this area how this would be done from the internet and because of the size of the area that he could have been dumped in there just isn't a way to really do a search. Yes, I know there are search and rescue groups but without even knowing for sure if he is dead that is a lot of effort for little benefit. We can only pray that it is found by a hiker at some point. If he is alive then I believe he voluntarily left and very likely with someone else now, but who knows if it is even in the greater Seattle area.

    About Greta Van Susteren show (from the previous thread) - It looks like the primary story last night was about a jogger who was murdered in Florida recently and Nicholas's story is not included in the interview transcripts.

    does anyone know if any 911 domestic violence calls were ever made to LE? I kind of doubt it, but just wanted to check.

    Can someone who viewed the show clarify for me - was Christine interviewed on last night's show, or was it a brief update on the case?
    Thanks in advance.

    I became intrigued with the case when I found out how much online presence they both had and how she tried to shut down comments on every blog that dealt with the case while simultanousy accepting funds from the public and making TV appearances. Why was she trying to squelch the speech of strangers? What was she trying to suppress? Why was her behavior so different from other families of missing loved ones?
