they are doing a live briefing right now...
click on the link at the top where it say live story developing
i noticed when I did the spreadsheet that the only possible victims we have (for the most part) are those who haven't been found. I'm wondering if there were more who HAVE been found and are unsolved cases? I remember something about multiple little girls going missing from the San Juan area in the mid 70s, when Cynthia Sumpter disappeared. Would anyone be able to gather that information?
Live conference now saying they found more bones on each property! Tomorrow, there will be cadaver dogs brought in.
she just said that they have removed photos that are "sensitive to Jaycee and her family". why the eff weren't these removed already, you know from Antioch PD!!!!
next briefing tomorrow at 4:30 Pacific time.
They have said repeatedly that they needed to get correct warrants and coordinate with all agencies involved, blah, blah,. I know, right? It kills me that they didn't secure the place immediately and go to town with it!
I have a feeling LE is withholding the information that the bone fragment has been identified as belonging to Ilene Mishelhoff, and as soon as it was confirmed, they moved in with the search warrants. Of course, I could be wrong.
However, I think that the bone belonging to Ilene would make more sense since the Dublin police have obtained a search warrant and there are very few similarities between Jaycee and Ilene's cases.
If nothing else, it will at least bring closure to some of these families.
You are probably right that he also abducted Michaela, and this search will produce evidence that he did.
My feeling about the first bone being Ilene's is based on the search warrants. Both warrants have similar wordings but some things were adapted as needed for each case. Dublin's search warrant specifically cites the bone fragment.
Ugh. I hate typing these words. I will take comfort in your words, that it will at least bring closure to the families.

I really feel that in the coming weeks, we're going to see multiple cold cases solved.
I hate typing these words too...but I also can't imagine the pain the the Michaela and Ilene's families have known for the past 20 years of not knowing where their children are. I am sure as much as this must be killing them, knowing for SURE will be a bittersweet relief.
This is a link to CNN's latest article. The most alarming thing I read in it was: "Neither police department has interviewed Dugard, police said."
WHY NOT?? She may know something of value!
Well, I imagine the FBI, the El Dorado County, and the Contra Costa County authorities have interviewed her extensively. I would think that if Dublin or Hayward has questions that haven't already been answered they could submit them to her in writing. Assuming of course that all the law enforcement agencies are talking with and sharing information with one another.
Something has led them to the search of these properties. Is it the finding of that one bone? I dunno.
You wonder what knowledge/ suspicions she had to suppress/ repress for those 18 years just in order to survive without going crazy.
I mean, Jaycee and her daughters have ENOUGH to deal with . . . . . can you imagine them (esp. the daughters, who may well not have had any IDEA that what was going on wasn't normal) finding out that their "husband"/ father was perhaps a serial rapist and killer? At present, perhaps the daughters wouldn't even understand the concept of rape, nevermind that they themselves were products of rape.
To talk to Jaycee about the other missing girls would require a great deal of caution and caring . . . to say the least . . .
As we've read, Jaycee went back to the compound and described everything - - where she gave birth, etc., etc. This information and other interviews could have been shared with the other law enforcement officials in charge of the other missing girls investigations . . .
Please help locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff and bring them home.
No way will Jodi walk with LWP!!! Here comes Perryville! And that is my opinion. I'm so sorry for the Alexander family. Stealth juror is to blame. Jodi is the one who loves to corrupt children. The convicted murderess is the domestic violence abuser- Travis Alexander was the victim of Domestic Violence.
If she is talking to one LE, then her info is being recorded then would be relayed to the other appropriate depts. They can then be looking to see if the info matches their cases, they can then be involved in the property search to see if any evidence can be found. There is time for Jaycee to talk to the other depts. After she has had more time to rest and recover and let it sink in that she is really now back to her old life, but with a new road ahead of her. And in the mean time PG isn't going anywhere. And I would think that while other families would want to get info about their child as soon as possible, they wouldn't want to rush it and risk Jaycee shutting down.
Let's face it, the fact that Jaycee is talking to them at all is major. First, she is alive. Second no one can force her to share details if she doesn't want. And third in her situation I would think that if she told her counselors that she felt uncomforable with sharing with LE..... most counselors would say they didn't feel she was ready for that. So if she is sharing with one department this soon, rejoice.
