    Hi and welcome! Bolded by me above - we actually did discuss this theory at one time - though not specifically about Rebecca Hollister or anyone else. I thought it was plausible, but IIRC, there was no indication of something like that going on. Still, could be.


    So funny NBM!!! We posted practically the same thought and I remembered right after I hit "submit" that it was you who came up with that theory!

    I second all of this! Stay strong Rita and family!!!

    Also just wanted to add that there has been a recent case at websleuths where a perp was actually posting on the case and her rantings will undoubtably help put and keep her behind bars. (Abraham Shakespear case).

    Thank you for understanding, and I understand what you are saying also.

    big ((((())))))) @ fairy1... interesting that the 'rumor' fits the theory, eh? I hope there are answers soon.

    What is sad is that what ever the answer is it will not be pretty. They never are in cases of pure evil such as the vanishing of the beautiful Patricia Kimmi.

    Dear Posters:

    There are a number of problems with the posts in this thread.

    First, this thread is for discussion. That means there may be things discussed that are upsetting to the victim's family. We always encourage family member and friends not to read here if they find that upsetting.

    There is a WS forum for information and family support. The only things that can be posted there are information and messages of support for the family. Anyone may start a thread there for Patricia.

    Second, if you are a friend or family member of Patricia's, you must not post at WS until your identity has been verified by WS's owner, Tricia. Her email is tgrif@xmission.com. This process is intended to keep imposters from claiming to know Patricia and posting what they "know" to be true.

    Third, it is a violation of TOS to do any of the following:

    1. Tell others how to or what to post.

    2. Try to guess or sleuth the indentity of another poster.

    3. Personal attacks against other posters.

    4. Posting names or personal information about suspects or POIs that haven't been named by LE.

    Of course, the TOS contains a lot more than that.

    It is incumbent on you as a poster to read, understand, and follow the TOS.

    And regarding rumors: if you have read a rumor, in your post you must label it as such and give a link. If you have heard a rumor, you must label it as such and state where you heard it.

    Thank you,

    Hoppy

    Unhappy

    I see a couple of my posts are gone, and I do apologize if I stepped over the line. My emotions got caught up in all the hurt.
    I only want justice and peace for Pat and the Kimmi kids.

    was doing some digging into ReH (with two names that start with R I am using Re as the "she" and Ro as the "he") and found that home interiors went bankrupt in 2008 (company that Re worked with)

Now it is not just local, but reporters are calling to ask us about it. There is no truth to it, anyone who knows my Mom in the least would know that, and certainly anyone w/ "firsthand" knowledge would know better than to repeat it. So I have to question the motives of the person made it up in the first place, whoever that may be.
    Rita, don't apologize. I have heard the rumor I am sure you were thinking about and to be quite frank, it ticked me off. If the people spreading this rumor knew your family, your mom, they would not be speaking that horrible rumor. I myself have tried to squash that when I have heard it. I know it is mainly from what I understand coming from the Sabetha area. At least that is from whom I heard it first and tried my best to stop it. Know how hurtful something like that would be to all of you. Sorry that it is even out there.

    Hugs

    Third, it is a violation of TOS to do any of the following:

    1. Tell others how to or what to post
    .

    My guideline for myself is to only post what I would feel comfortable saying if the family and the rest of this site were in the room with me. That is MY thoughts and no one else is expected to follow suit and I wouldn't dream of indicating that. I am a nurse and we deal w/ confidentiality all the time so I get uncomfortable w/ gossip and rumors anyway--- even if the person is not my patient.

    For me, it is great to be able to toss ideas back and forth and think of what could have happened and what someone might be thinking and where this is heading next.... the 'TONE' of a message can make a difference. I don't think anyone has had an issue w/ anything before that message and it may not have seemed 'odd' to others, but it sure raised a red flag to several people on here that something seemed a bit off.

    Great site! I think this group has worked well together and the family is wanting the information and sharing information w/ us and handling it all remarkably well w/ truly amazing grace. I am glad they feel comfortable on here w/ us and hope they continue to come because I almost feel like I've adopted this family as my own!

    ((sorry if this seemed un-educated or nutty))

    I would also like to appoligize for my post. I think I took something wrong about the ex statement... All my thoughts are with the Kimmi family. My prayers are there each and every day praying that today will be the day. It is time that Pat came home!

    I found Re's maiden name, too. I recognized it, and I have some ties to the family in really distant ways. My sister knows some of her family. A close high school friend of my sister's dated one of Re's brothers. This was all way back when -- 60s. Sister is hearing also that Re is timid and shy, commonly thought to be because of spousal abuse. That would be rumor, of course. If so, too bad the brothers didn't step in, and teach Ro a lesson. It looks more like they got him a job at Goodyear. :-(

    Tone, you couldnt have chose a better word!!! Lets talk about tone, if it isnt too far off the subject matter. Actually, its right on, hang with me.

    If you get too far from the music, the tone is the 1st thing to go (after volume decreases). If the radio is too low in the car, the tone becomes muffled, to the point you arent sure if you are hearing a saxiphone, a guitar, or a piano. I have even thought I heard one song, only to be surpised its another when i adjust the volume up & the tone becomes defined. Another set of tone destroying "things happen" when the music is too loud, but lets talk about it being too low.

    So the tone of a conversation. If I am sitting across the room from you, talking, looking you in the eye, & we are experiencing each others body language, we are probably at full tone of conversation.

    If i call you on the tele, we lost some of that.

    A cell phone with drop outs disinigrates it a little more.

    It might get worse or better if I write you a letter, depends on how well my writing skills are, depends if I can add some parables & paint you a picture you can see.

    My personal observation is, that an internet board probably lacks the most tone. In this thread, we are excited when new evidence comes up, we want to post "fast". We read something, we misunderstand it or just plain make a misktake in reading it, or the writer isnt very savvy at laying our their thoughts properly. It happens.

    Yea, great advise, checking our tone.
