Maybe he hired an attorney. Still, I doubt he'll find a family member or friend that would post bond for him.

I'm thinking that's what happened. Even a court appointed atty can get a bond reduced pretty easily. However, when you find out the guy who lives 3 doors down is a convicted sex offender (sodomized 2 boys under 12) lives with his mother, you realize sometimes family stands behind family no matter what.

I am not sure family has the money to bail him out. And if I was Chessie, any spare penny I had would go toward finding BW.

Possibly, but I have doubts. Generally, the negotiations are saved for plea deals, and not for something like bond lowering. The judge looks at factors like prior convictions, flight risk, etc. and can lower bond as he sees fit. Also, I'm sure the defendant knows full well whether he has family or friends willing to post bond for him. Its likely there is no one with the means or the desire to post bond for him, so I doubt he'd go all in on providing additional info for a bond that wouldn't be posted, no matter how much it's reduced.

Eta: I would think he'd save any negotiating power he may have for a leniency in sentencing and/or dropped/lowered charges.

ETA#2: JMO.

I wouldn't think Chessie would, but maybe his family in TN. Maybe he or they own property and are trying to get it low enough to use the property for bond. Also, if there are other perps...they longer he is in there, the more likely he is to talk. If I were an accomplice, I'd try to get him out. I don't know if it's really true that the longer they sit in there, the more likely they will talk...but I have heard many people say that regarding other crimes.

MPD Cpl. Chris Levy said he couldn’t go into too much detail out of concern for the department’s investigative techniques, but Wood’s family reported her missing June 2 after she "packed her bags and walked out of the house” May 30.

All we reported to the family is that we had information through our investigation that puts [Wood] in the Grand Bay area or south Mobile County at or around same time [Holland] is committing suicide,”
We’ve got some incomplete answers,” he said, adding that the family did in fact hear from Brittney between the time she left her home and the time she was reported missing.
"That wasn’t originally reported. So there has been some back and forth. Some answers haven’t been entirely accurate,” Levy said.

His address is to an apartment. I was guessing he didn't own property. FB posts said he was working in AL due to being laid off. That might make money another issue.

Well, if he had an atty request a reduction there should be a reason for that. His bond was reduced by what 40%? It is not going to be reduced by much more than that if any. His attorney would know that. It would be pointless to have the attorney request it be lowered at all if there is NO possibility of anyone atleast trying to post the bond. I know people who have had friends, cousins, aunts, uncles, and/or grandparents put up THEIR property. So it is still possible he has someone out there that might atleast try.

Seriously! Why has there been so much flip flopping from the family as to the who/what/where/when/why that pertains to the last time she was known to have had contact with anyone, where she was, and the circumstances under which she left her mothers home? "packed her bags and left" makes it sound like she was leaving for good, not just an overnight stay with her friend or uncle or whatever the original story was.

ETA: I want to clarify that I'm NOT stating that the family is trying to cover something up, I'm just saying, it's a little frustrating. I'm sure even moreso for LE. They cannot run a proper investigation and find this poor girl without ALL of the facts.

I only know of boys around her own age. I've never gotten the impression that she would hitch with a stranger. But, anything could have happened that night.

thats what I thought too, I just wonder why these details weren't posted by others? It makes a big difference "her family has heard from her", also " they know she was in the area when DH committed suicide"? wtf?

She packed a tote bag, from what I understand. Maybe that and a purse could be considered bags, but it's not like she packed up with all her earthly possessions. She left on foot.

Thanks for the info. I know very little how they work. Do they ever reduce bond without an attorney? And could he have a court appointed attorney who would get it reduced? Thanks!

No one in the family has heard from her 5/31. The last text was at 1:47 am June 1. She had contact with people on 5/31, which was after she left her mom's. That's what LE is referring to. There's been no contact since.

Info about bag is on her Missing Poster. I guess the size of bag might determine how long she meant to be gone.

I'd like to know if she took her phone charger. I always take my charger when intending to stay overnight. But I know a couple of people who keep charger in purse at all times.

BBM: this statement right here is the BIGGEST wtf?! Of all. IMO, that's crucial information. Did she see him shoot himself? Did she witness something else? Did they search the suicide site for clues to her disappearance in addition to the suicide investigation?

other reports we have seen say "her phone" was in the area. This is different (IMO)

Hi everyone!

I had ask last night if BW has a tattoo on her lower back. I found a pic of girl calling herself Brittney online in the Tillman Corner area. She has a tat on her lower back surrounded by butterflies. I saw that it was noted in one of the poster that she had a tat on her leg surrounded by butterflies. I just wanted to verify it is on her leg not her lower back.

Thanks for clarifying! The way it was worded, coupled with the revelation of previous statements given to LE "haven't been entirely accurate" made me think she was planning on going away for a long time. "packed her bags and left the home" just makes it sound like she had several suitcases packed and paced out.

Agreed, two totally different situations. Her phone could have been in the area due to any number of reasons. But if SHE were in the area....whoooole 'nother story.

First hand experience here... keeping secrets is the standard and it is usually out of shame or fear that something terrible will happen to another family member. I was never threatened to keep my mouth shut. The psychological mind set of a child in those circumstances instinctively knows it would be far worse if they said anything.

I never told because I was ashamed, didn't think anyone would believe me or that it would make any difference and I didn't want to make my life anymore messed up than it already was... but more so because I knew my dad would kill someone and go to jail.

I needed & wanted my dad around. My dad wasn't perfect (alcoholic) but my dad lived his life as if the sun did not rise until I did. He loved me more than anything in the entire world.

I told when I was "old enough" (15) and brave enough to stand up for myself and what I thought would happen... happened. I got kicked out of my house and was on my own. My mom's maternal protectiveness lasted maybe 30 minutes. She then announced she wasn't giving up her home that she had invested almost 13 years of her life to so I would have to live somewhere else. She was a real peach.

It makes you tougher, less afraid of terrible things happening to you (what could be worse?)... it does make you think you can overcome things a lot easier than others. That is partially true but it also makes you vulnerable to predators because you just really want someone to love you honestly without hurting you.

Enough about me... I am just trying to illustrate more insight into the mindset of an abused child, family dynamics, how & why secrets are kept by the abused and by the others who know or who may know what is happening.
