Story must be updated.

Now saying both the homicide victim and Machus who is missing both worked at the store.

Body was found when employees came in to open. Store was in disarray.

Not much luck finding a fb page for her. But I'm not that good at finding anything on that site.

I wonder if LE tried calling her cell phone. If they could get a ping off that it might lead them right to her.

I've looked, too, and info about Jimmy Hoffa shows up because he went missing from the Machus Restaurant.

I wish that there were more details available about Brenna's disappearance. How long has she been missing? Was she working last evening when the store was robbed and her co-worker murdered? If so, did she try to escape but was pursued by the perp/s?

Local news on WDIV (Channel 4) at 4:00. I'll definitely be tuned in for an update.

Lots of businesses in that area. I wouldn't think it would be too hard to come up with some surveillance video.

Google Map https://www.google.com/maps?q=&layer...ed=0CCsQxB0wAA

The Family Dollar store I would imagine has video recording equipment too.

That would be great! Unfortunately usually we hear the story "they were broken" or "not working" at the time. Gosh I hope thats not the case here

Was she taken to eliminate an eye witness or is she maybe involved in this in some way?


Seems strange that if the perp(s) are willing to kill one, why didn't they kill her also.

Taking hostages during a robbery is not very common. Hostages can cause more problems by drawing attention to the situation.

My PC is running really slow so I'm having trouble loading up some of the news sites.. do any of them mention the person Brenna might be with? I put her name into public search on Facebook and search engines and her uncle is on a forum making an appeal. He says she may be in a Chevy Yukon.

(not sure if I can link the forum but it's http://castboolits.gunloads.com/show...-Find-My-Niece)

No mention yet of who Brenna might be with - only that she is likely in danger. Hopefully, there will be more information on Channel 4 news at 4:00.

I think she was an eyewitness and they took her so she couldn't speak. Hope I'm wrong!

Why not just killer then. They already killed the other employee.


Hopefully this robbery is not related. Seems four males broke into a house, beat and sexually assaulted the victim.

Perhaps if these are the same perps, taking Brenna was sexually motivated.

To go one step further it says "the male companion" is Arabic and this companion killed one of her co-workers. Strange wording for a robbery suspect if Brenna didn't know the perp.

Has anyone else looked at Brenna's pictures on her fb page? Not sure if the male she is kissing is Arabic or not.

If you see her possibly with an Arabic male in a Chevy Yukon, please call the police immediately.
The male companion killed one of her co-workers and should be considered armed and dangerous.

Lead story on Channel 4 news: Brenna was an assistant manager at the store. Police believe that she was abducted from the store last night when her co-worker was murdered. Massive search underway by Dearborn Police.

That's it for now.
