    C'mon over baby! Wholelotta sleuthin' goin on!!

    Thanks, Cocoamom & Harmony2 for taking up the 'living' players post mantle. Really taking shape! Awesome work guys.

    Slightly, OT, but, I stopped in @ a kiosk in the mall to check in this evening and I learned that "White Supr*macy" is a keyword that prevented access to some of the last thread's pages. So...FWIW...and since I may not be the only one accessing from public locations (vacationing next week on the road) please consider abbreviating or *'ng words that might cause browser filters to go censor-listic.

    BJB what does AFAIK mean? Still kinda new and still learning. I like the theory I read about maybe TO and others being targeted for a reason. What does TO's dad do for a living. He looks Hispanic. What does Jennifer Kesse's dad do for a living?

    Ocasio is a hispanic last name. Would a white supremcy group target females of mixed relationships for the reason of trying to stop them from having more kids that are "mixed". This sounds far feached. I am going to do some more research on Rachael and Jennifer's families.

    AFAIK = as far as I know. And I'm still learning too...I'm just one acronym ahead of you

    RE: Speculation on targeting motivation. IMHO, as long as it rooted in some information we know to be factual (e.g. skin head affinity of JVH) then I agree it is a very good angle to continue sleuthing on, esp. until we get more information.

    I'm sure the background info on D. Kesse is out there. Dunno 'bout J. Ocasio yet. Perhaps someone will speak up.

    Players in alphabetic order

    Giving it another try just to establish the players. The idea is to quote the previous post, then, wipe out the quote commands (begin and end quote in brackets) so that the list can be editted/updated and available for the next person to repeat the process until we get it pretty well fleshed out. Best we can do w/o a dedicated forum for Tracy IMHO. My hope is to create 1 or 2 posts that we can then used to send links to other sleuthers so they can come up to speed on the case and lend their time & talent.
    Dunno if this helps or hurts. I was in an organizing mood this mornin hoping to add to and not take away from Cocoamom & Harmony2's fine work!

    I believe I read somewhere that Ocasio is actually Italian. This family crest website actually says it's origin is Irish!

    http://www.houseofnames.com/xq/asp.f...mily-crest.htm

    My marital bliss is based on an Italian spouse and from what I have learned, not always, but often an "o" on the end indicates Italian heritiage.

    Of course "o" on the end is also Hispanic. Just lettin everyone know that you can't tell the Heritage by the name nor the book by the cover!

    I was going on the picture of him, the last name and the fact FL has a large hispanic population. You right it could be Italian, but I still think in this case it is hispanic. I need help finding out what Joe ocasio does for a living.

    Trying case summary 'living' post again...

    If we can flesh this out I combined it w/ the 'players' post so we'll have something to draw in other WS's and get them interested, up to speed & contributing.

    IMHO a 'living' post is kinduvan attempt @ getting the next best thing to a stickie for Tracy.

    Use the "Quote" feature and simply erase the quote begin & end commands to create a 'living' post to which anyone can add 'facts'. Can always debate what has been added along the way by keeping the quote commands intact IYKWIM.

    Big TY for Cocoamom & Harmony2 for their work on the Players & Kiki, AmyTLake, et.al. for keeping the case information coming in!

    FACTS:
    • Tracy Ocasio, 27 year old caucasian female

    I PM'd some fellow sleuths the link to post#26 w/ the hope that some can share their time & talent on this case. Appreciate any & all help. Hope others will consider doing the same.

    FWIW, I will be traveling for the next week +/- with limited opportunity to check in. Keeping you all in my thoughts & prayers.

    Tracy and her family lived in Fredericksburg VA. She attended high school in Fredericksburg, Va., and moved with her family to Central Florida in 1998. During the past 10 years, she worked a series of restaurant and retail jobs, including positions as a Denny's waitress and sales jobs at arts-and-crafts store Michaels, a pet store and Ross Dress for Less.

    OT, but Drew Kesse works in contract sales for Staples and Joe Ocasio works as a salesman for the dollar tree. Do we know anything about Rachel Clarke's family? I am not sure where I am going with this but think it might be important.
