    My first reaction when reading the above summary:

    So she was last seen at a bus station that her estranged husband drove her to after an argument. Is this last sighting based on the husband's testimony? Can anyone else independently confirm that she was at the bus station?

    But then I read the Charley Project's more detailed summary of the case.

    • "Prior to her disappearance, Long had said she felt anxious about the trip to the ranch." In fact, she "told her roommate, 'I'll be back for dinner. If I don't come back tonight, come and get me.'"

    Her apprehension is all the more reason to be suspicious of the husband.

    • Also, "records showed that no one had purchased a ticket to Mill Valley on the night of Long's disappearance... Long's husband volunteered to take a polygraph test shortly after her disappearance; the results were inconclusive."

    To me, this supports my belief that the reported last sighting at the bus station was simply based on the husband's word. Having just argued with his estranged wife, he has a motive to be less than truthful.

    • But then there's this: "He [the husband] was a Korean War veteran and had had both legs amputated due to war wounds."

    What can a double-leg amputee have possibly done to her then... and how? I can't imagine brute force or violence. He could've poisoned her, killed her in her sleep (though she wasn't planning to stay over), but could he have hidden her body? Did he have someone else do it?

    He could be very capable (see Oscar Pistorius, PeeWee Gaskins, etc.), and I wouldn't rule him out based on his handicap. You don't need legs to shoot a gun, for example.

    That's a good point! I wasn't aware of Oscar Pitorius' case, in particular—definitely an eye-opener. Thanks for sharing. I guess anything is possible!

    Duhh I said PeeWee Gaskins, and I meant Grady Stiles. NOT the same at all. My bad.

    He built a house on a 320 acre ranch by himself. He obviously could also dispose of her body in one of those many mine shafts talked about in the second article. I wonder what her sons think about her disappearance.
