    We know that Suzanne expressed fear to Melinda. We don't have any idea what she'd been speaking about lately with her friend in Indiana. I think that will also be a big factor and I think the friend was on the phone to LE very quickly.

    MOO

    ETA: I don't think the communication with her IN friend was only wedding stuff.

    My thought is that SM was a private person and tried to keep up a brave persona. She may have hinted at problems without stating them directly.

    IMO CC will be helpful and has been helpful to LE. I think he is one of the people that began talking and helped all three agencies finally make an arrest.

    Yes. And I bet her friend knew, without it being spelled out.

    Hmm. GD thought the very same thing. o_O

    george says when he arrived at
    the bike scene there were two other deputies who told him
    that the bike was down here
    allegedly they were in the process of
    pulling the bike up out of the embankment
    which he says quote a giant no-no
    he said they shouldn't have touched it
    kept it where it's at
    took pictures before removing it
    he continued by saying there were
    a lot of things that the sheriff's office
    did like that
    but chalked it up as being
    a small town law enforcement agency
    that don't see this sort of thing often
    and don't know everything

    How long was it before LE called in the FBI and CBI? Maybe they were waiting for their input and assistance with the search warrant.

    It has to or he will be found not guilty of that charge as currently there are no other options on the table for the jury. You don’t see many high profile cases like this that doesn’t also include manslaughter or some other option for the jury.

    I had wondered about the idea that he packed her in a cooler and poured lye and boiling water on her to dissolve her, but after looking around on how to do this, he would need a stainless steel pot or other sturdy container to do that with.

    Perhaps he stored her dismembered parts in the cooler or multiple coolers as he lye-boiled her in a pot pieces at a time. As to what he did with the liquid remains, he could have poured it down the drain or in the river. Perhaps LE found evidence of this in the pipes at the house and that’s how they know she’s dead (someone else suggested they might have found strands of Suzanne’s hair with death bands). Or maybe he poured it at the site of the five trees and that’s why at least one looks like it’s dying.

    Why Hinky Meters Sounded?
    LE's hinky meter sounded more quickly and loudly than typical Man-Reports-Wife-Missing case. Why? Why seemingly immediately after that afternoon/eve. of report to LE?
    A fact known to someone participating in responding to MisPers call & early search? Or even gen'ly known to some ppl in BM's orbit, e.g., gym members, his business' independent contractors, or ___, who passed the word to LE? Maybe ---
    1. BM living separately, not PP, no known extra marital relationship.
    2. BM living separately, not PP, w one known extramarital relationship.
    3. BM living separately, not PP, multiple known extramarital relationships.
    4. BM told ___?
    5. Or __?
    What factor could trigger hinky meters so quickly, anyone?

    I remember in the beginning LE said they had 15 agencies working on the case. It may be that they just wanted to concentrate all their efforts into searching the area before executing the warrant. They had the house locked down so it's not like the evidence was going anywhere. Imo

    Colorado has five main homicide crimes. They are (from most serious to least serious):

    1. First-degree murder (18-3-102 C.R.S.): Premeditated or knowing killings.
    2. Second-degree murder (18-3-103 C.R.S.): Unintended deaths caused by extremely dangerous behavior.
    3. Vehicular homicide (18-3-106 C.R.S.): Fatal car accidents caused by DUI or reckless driving (18-3-102 C.R.S.)
    4. Manslaughter (18-3-104 C.R.S.): Unintended deaths caused by reckless behavior.
    5. Criminally negligent homicide (18-3-105 C.R.S.): Unintended deaths caused by careless behavior.
    Penalties

    Homicide punishments depend on the defendant’s state of mind. The more intentional the killing, the harsher the sentence:

    Colorado "Murder" & "Homicide" Laws

    As soon as the AA is released, I'll let you know. :)
    Don't be too surprised if it's a detail the public still has zero knowledge of.

    I do wonder where the idea came from that BM wasn't living at the PP house.

    The last person I would trust is someone who goes around stating that they are godly or whatever. Just act like it, and people will notice. If you have to proclaim it then you yourself have doubts. About yourself. Some old saying about "a person is as a person does". Or more modern....actions speak louder than words?
