It’s not okay. The ball was dropped in this case significantly. I, for one, don’t believe it was dropped by the entire MPD, but it was dropped by the chief and whoever was assisting him. If he didn’t have knowledge of cellphones and pinging location, he should’ve asked someone to assist. Unfortunately, the chief has given his force a bad name and that’s very unfortunate for all of the officers representing this department.
I cannot get past the fact that instead of her being found in hours or even a couple of days-she was found 1 month later. After decomp has now made it impossible for her daughters and family to even be able to see their mom one last time. I just can’t imagine what they are feeling.
I hope everyone on the "force" pays very close attention to all that transpires with this case. I hope they listen very closely to the PI and her reports. The State Investigators and the coroner's office. If they don't have the experience, then they will learn a lot. I hope that the State will see a need for continuing education for these small town forces. Now, that is about all the benefit of doubt I wish to offer these guys.
