    This is so much worse than I ever thought. I goggled shrines and religion in regards to Filipino beliefs. I learned most are catholic. With that being said, I hope that today will convict someone’s soul and we can finally find Maya. I would imagine LM and his family will go to church and celebrate Easter as he has shown that he does love and believe in our Lord and Savior. MOO

    MOO, the link to solving this case and finding out where Maya can be found rests with the relative. I'd even suggest having dogs sniff out their backyard. Get search warrants to check out their car's GPS and phones and computers ....but, of course, CVPD might not be able to legally do that. Can they, it seems they have reason?

    Unfortunately, I'm not sure CVPD paid enough attention upon hearing of the freezer. Once CVPD heard about the freezer that was moved to a relatives house on Saturday, Jan. 9th, the same day Maya's family went to the house wanting to report her missing LE should have been on it like glue. Heck, I don't think the freezer was even part of the search warrant weeks later. I hope I'm wrong and that CVPD is aware of the relative's role in what may have been the disposal.

    MOO, I don't think the relative moved a clean freshly bleached freezer. Not many people were aware of Maya being missing yet. Hello , hello CVPD, moving that freezer on that particular day is key information. Don't you think? All MOO.

    I'm worried about this as well - that the attorney/PI might have created a "fruit of the poisonous tree" problem for investigators and prosecutors in relation to anything at the Millete house and garage and at the house of the relative where the freezer was moved.

    At the least, his actions may have delayed the search warrant because I assume investigators would have to be careful to rely upon only what they knew and documented from their own house-check that occurred after the missing person report, but BEFORE the attorney/PI did his walk-through and from what other witnesses (incl. family) had to say to LE investigators BEFORE they learned anything from the PI after his walk-through.

    Surely, when LE conducted their own walk-through of the house after the missing person report, they'd have been alert to irregularities like the holes (or repaired holes) in the wall/door. Likewise, they'd have been alert to how LM was acting - his attempts to delay the missing person report for a couple of hours when he couldn't even reliably say he knew she was alive after he'd last visually seen her Thursday AND he expressed that he knew how critical the first 48-72 hours are, the convenient "we're living so much like roommates, we don't even notice when the other is there or not there," excuse for his apparent lack of concern about his wife's absence, and his complete lack of involvement in early search efforts for his wife. He was not acting in any way like a man whose wife has disappeared without his involvement. And if he spoke at all like he did in the KGTV interview, his hostility toward his wife AND her family was apparent.

    While I think it was likely motivated out of concern for Maya and by their impatience and frustration with LE leaving them out of the details of the early investigation as officers worked behind the scenes to try to get a clear picture of what they were dealing with, I strongly hope that the family's hiring this PI doesn't result in making evidence that would have been convincing inadmissible.

    Otherwise, it is possible that finding Maya or her remains using LE techniques that are in no way reliant on anything that PI told investigators may be more critically important than it otherwise would have been.

    I do have one question for any who might know: If the attorney/PI was telling the truth about how he identified himself (and if LM was not) and the attorney/PI recorded that interaction when he identified himself, what would be required for that recorded interaction to be admissible? (i.e., PI tells LM he is recording so they both know? Or, just one party knowledge is adequate?)

    California has some of the strongest laws in the country on wiretapping. Put simply, absent consent of all parties, they are not only not admissible into evidence, but a crime to obtain and allow the “injured party” to sue. Admittedly, damages are hard to prove in these cases.

    California's wiretapping law is a "two-party consent" law. California makes it a crime to record or eavesdrop on any confidential communication, including a private conversation or telephone call, without the consent of all parties to the conversation. See Cal. Penal Code § 632.

    I would hope that any reputable P.I./Attorney or some such blend of one or the other would be well aware of how to interview an unnamed POI. I doubt he broke protocol, as he would understand the consequences.

    LE needs to team up and leverage this "get it done" man hired by the family. He seems to be able to take action and get the needed information.

    There are a number of bits of information that are circumstantial in nature about this,” said Captain Thunberg. “We are aware of the instances [Little’s] described and he may not be aware of what our detectives have done, but we have, in fact, followed up and conducted follow up and continue to conduct follow up.”

    IMO, this quote seems a bit defensive, and I’m assuming that was Little’s intention, to make them uncomfortable and shed light onto the lack of urgency that seems to vibe from LE. I’m gathering that the freezer, hole in the door and wall, cryptic texts messages, and apparent witnesses to LM soliciting murder were the “circumstantial” information they are referring to. IMO “looking into something” is different than forensically and narrowly investigating. I dislike the use of the term circumstantial, because it makes me think that they don’t really view the information that Little spoke of as valuable. That being said, I agree that no one knows how thoroughly they have looked into these things, and it’s possible that they are waiting for something more, or the right moment to bring an arrest.

    The statement that really confuses me is, “If we knew where to go and had an idea of where to search that is consistent with the route that was traveled, yeah, we would share the information. But at this point we are still working to determine where those areas may be,” said Captain Thunberg.
    I just don’t understand how they still have no idea of the route he took that day. If the gps was tampered with or removed, are they viewing that as “circumstantial” as well? This almost makes me truly believe that it wasn’t LM that disposed of the body at all. It makes me think he sent them on a crazy route as a red herring to throw everyone off.

    Additionally, if LM doesn’t have an atty (which is what I suspect), would that be considered misleading/hindering an investigation, or being dishonest and not cooperating with the investigation. I don’t know if hindering an active investigation is a crime, but it should be (sarcasm intended). After all, LM seemed very concerned with Littles perceived criminal activity,
    “Also I am not quite sure if impersonating NCIS is a crime, but it should be.”
    This statement from LM makes my skin crawl. Tbh, I see his puffed up ego once again throwing someone else under a bus to make himself a victim. I don’t think Little impersonated NCIS, I think LM did a crap job of verifying his identity, was expecting NCIS to show up, so he drew that conclusion himself. He would never admit that mistake. ;)

    MOO.

    I don't think CCSO knows exactly where Barry Morphew was in the critical hours on Saturday, before Suzanne went missing either. If they did, we would likely know where he put her body, JMO. I suspect there may be chain of custody issues with evidence in Suzanne's case as well.

    You, Diddan & Seattle1 all raised good points in the possible challenges CVPD may be facing with evidence/witnesses in the investigation. But after what we learned from Little, it does seem like a very strong circumstantial case if all those pieces of information can be used at trial. Are they still holding out for the body to be found? Then again, it's only been just shy of three months, there may be more leads to be chased down.

    IF the relative was planning on receiving the freezer prior to that time, there's a fair chance IMO that the freezer was no longer needed and therefore empty, awaiting pick up.

    Perfect place to conceal a body until morning. There's also the whole next day, too, no?

    Relatives might be working with LE, but afraid to broadcast that in any way, for fear of setting someone off.

    With the same three fears we here share.

    Snipped for focused reply.
    Exactly. Nice try maliit na tao; ain't gonna work.
    The professional knew he was collecting evidence for potential trial.

    In my amateur opinion and speculation, the D.A. needs to make a move. They have enough for an arrest I suspect, or will very soon. I want those kids out of there!

    I couldn't help but think of Laci Peterson today. Her remains were found close to Easter. I was praying we would find May as well.

    Moo.. he seems to have strong beliefs and is ritualistic. So her 'resting' place would maybe be in line with these beliefs...since he seems to have harboured resentment for some time. Moo

    I don't know for sure, but I believe Maya's family alerted Little first of the missing freezer before he went to the house. We know that somehow there's a pic of the freezer being moved out of the house (as far as I understood it) per Chris McD. of The Interview Room show. A pic or image, some neighbor's camera or phone captured the freezer being taken by the relative on that Saturday, an image given to Maya's questioning family??? Chris McD. said he had proof of this missing item which, most likely, turns out to be the freezer. So, it's not just Little, but the whole Panel of former LE and current Investigational People who are trying to get CVPD to pay more attention to the relative, IMO. So, Little knew about the missing freezer beforehand, IMO.

    All MOO here.
