    I just wanted to answer a question about the garage door opener. After Kelly changed her locks due to somebody being in the house. She still felt like somebody was getting in so she had the remote garage door opener frequency changed. So after she did that she told me that she thought it all had stopped and that things were better now.

    Thank you so much for the information, AnotherNiece.

    I need to ask just a few questions: First, what was the time frame for when the mailbox was vandalized? Was that after the locks and the remote garage door frequency were changed, or before?

    Second, when someone was getting in, were things taken or were they just being moved around? Was anything ever left behind in Kelly's house?? It's just that I think someone getting in (and somehow making it known to Kelly) was a "statement" to Kelly to say "I was here" or "You may think you're in control, but I am."

    Thank you for any light you can shed on this. Only answer what you are comfortable answering.

    Extensive searches of the river with sonar and divers and air searches did not indicate anything of Catalano's whereabouts. "This whole case is definitely very strange," Patterson said then.


    Pulled that from the article posted on the above FB page...

    Hmmmm...extensive searches...nothing found...and then whoops...mysteriously Kelly's body appears on a small island...and it adds mystery to the case... Well duh effin duh...

    Then they're back to that tidal water theory...which I will never buy...not upstream...

    Anyone know anyone who specializes in tidal waters? I've searched the Internet and find references here and there...but what I'd like to know is...really...just how strong could that surge be - so far inland? What's the difference in water levels during the tides for that part of Swift Creek?

    I'm thinking maybe 1 to 2, possibly 3 inches between high and low tide? IDK...curious to know how this affects water level - obviously the surge couldn't be like at the shore or in a bay? (Just thinking about the 8 yr old in WA state)

    Which leads me to think...if Kelly was out there in that water for that length of time and the surge was THAT strong that it would be bouncing her around all over the place and her body would have sustained some kind of damage (sorry family, I really hate to bring that up) from hitting tree limbs, rocks and other assorted obstacles out in the water.

    The closest tidal measurements I could find are from the James River, approximately 30 or so miles to the east and toward the Chesapeake Bay. For January 15th, at 10 am, there registered a low tide at .44 feet. High tide, at 8pm, registered 2.05 feet. I'm no expert, and my Dad's cell service on the water seems to suck so I can't ask him what those numbers mean all the way at BPA, but I will as soon as I track him down. Google "tidal chart history" that's where I got it. I thought I saved the site but I obviously goofed. I would assume that indicates the rise above the normal water level? I dunno. I just remember the numbers!!!!

    ETA....okay, I found it.....

    Thanks Shutter - so there on the James the fluctuations really aren't that great - from less than an inch to just barely over 2 inches... So I'm thinking it couldn't be much different - or the change could be even less on Swift Creek.

    Thanks again!!!
    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    Love never fails.

    I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.

    Just an update about Eleanor Salotto, a professor from Sweet Briar College, in Virginia, who has been missing since 2/11 ... abc13 is reporting that a body was found in the James River this afternoon at about 3:00-3:30 pm, and the remains have been sent to the ME for final identification, yet it is believed that it is indeed the body of Eleanor. The clothing found on the body is the same as the clothing Eleanor was last seen wearing. Her body was found downstream of Lynchburg.

    RIP Eleanor.

    I've rolled this around in my head since the beginning. What if Kelly did meet someone that day and they abducted her. Then took her somewhere for a while. Then later that night, took her back to the house (open unlocked doors). And has had her somewhere for a while. And when things had gone too far and had calmed down, took her back to the area and dumped her. I'm sure the condition of the body (sorry) would let us know some kind of timeline.

    Rest in peace sweet Kelly<3

    I just can't stop thinking about Kelly. Why did this have to happen to such a beautiful person? By the pictures on facebook and all her friends and family that speak so kindly of her, seems to me she had no enemies. I for one don't believe she had a mental episode as told by her friend or she was in prison. Someone did this to her. There is one person that blogs that tries to defend herself too much and make Kelly look bad. I think the police need to keep questioning. Although Eleanors death looks like Kelly's also.

    There is a reason she went running out of work and the cops need to be on top of that quickly.

    Kelly took some dance classes at our studio but unfortunately I did not get to know her well. Kelly has been on my mind so much and I wish we had the chance to get to know her better.

    Just wondering, did the ME ever determine a cause of death and do they still think it was suicide? When Kelly was here at the dance studio she never appeared depressed, it would be really shocking to me if that was true. Last time she was here (maybe in November, I can't remeber exactly) she told several of us that she planned to come back to dancing more often. She had been absent for a while because of softball. Also, I know there has been some negative things said about her ex (who I never met) but the ex's mother came here with Kelly to dance and it seemed like the mom cared for Kelly very much, they laughed and joked and had a good time here together.

    Ballroom welcome to Websleuths. Please pull up a chair and stick around a while. I'm not aware that the ME has released that information and if they have, we've not been privy to it as of yet. But my hunch is that we'll see a COD of "accidental drowning" and not much more. We're experiencing a bit of a lull while we wait for any new information, and you could potentially be just what we need to break the silence. Again, welcome.

    I have a question, if you don't mind my asking. Anything you're not comfortable sharing, please just let me know if I cross the line, okay?

    To clarify, the last time you remember seeing Kelly in class, you say it was November. My question is this; could you tell us approximately when you saw Kelly in class with her ex's mother and how many times?
    Thanks
