    PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTINUING DISCUSSION IN THIS THREAD

    Tricia wants members to know that she feels very badly that anyone was upset by the thread specific decision she made yesterday to allow discussion of the rumors in this case. She will revisit this matter as the situation warrants.

    The Sheriff has specifically stated that Suzanne’s body was not found and Barry has not been arrested. Accordingly, Tricia has reversed the decision to allow discussion of any of the three rumors, specifically that:

    - Suzanne’s body was found
    - there is a mistress involved
    - that Barry was arrested

    Do not discuss those rumors.

    Do NOT sleuth BM and his businesses and post your findings or questions about his background or businesses on this public thread.

    Unless he is named a POI/suspect by LE members may NOT sleuth him; members may ONLY speculate and discuss what has been contained in MSM.

    The thread is open once again for members to discuss the case details within the regular WS parameters (i.e. as we believe them to be factual via MSM and LE).

    Thank you.

    This post falls at random:

    Some gentle advice.....
    If your post states:
    “I remember reading that _____”
    OR “Didn’t somebody say that ______”
    OR “I don’t have a source but I saw somewhere that _____”
    OR anything in that vein, you are posting a potential runaway rumor if it does not have a link to the info in MSM.

    Runaway rumors are tough to stop, and often require a thread shutdown to clean up.
    I know NO ONE ever intends that with what seems to be innocent questions, but once those words are printed here they can take on a life of their own.
    Please consider carefully what you write. You can ask some of these questions in PMs that will remain off the board and not cause a proliferation of mistaken info taking over the thread.


    THANKS from me - I really appreciate your efforts!

    Faithfully,
    CocoChanel

    In his May 15, 2020 news conference Chafee County Sheriff John Spezze didn’t exactly rule out animal attack. Starting at 6:09 in the linked video, my transcription of what he said is:

    (the question being asked is) “if we are still looking if an animal can be involved?”

    “In any open investigation, obviously you don’t rule out anything. We’ve not found anything to indicate that…….however, we’re always evaluating. We believe…...however so much…...we’re always looking…...obviously……..any information that you have, we’re going to follow up on.”

    We just voted on it last year in Colorado.

    How to Access and Use Death with Dignity Laws
    Death with dignity laws allow qualified terminally-ill adults to voluntarily request and receive a prescription medication to hasten their death. As of September 2019, aid in dying statutes are in effect in: California, Colorado, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Maine, New Jersey, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington.

    In Montana, physician-assisted dying has been legal by State Supreme Court ruling since 2009.

    Geez BM moving kinda fast don’t ya think. Poor guy he’s so broken up that after only a month he’s already summed it up she no longer alive and got SM already buried. He must know she’s not coming home. Instead of mourning his wife he’s getting all his finances in order. I think BM is the mountain lion he talks about. Another Scott Peterson. Hmmm I wonder how long it will be before he moves his Girlfriend in the Colorado house. This makes me think of Martin MacNeill who moved in Nanny GF Gypsy Willis after killing his wife. JMO MOO

    FWIW, §§1845-1849.5 of the California Probate Code appear to outline the procedures for getting a conservatorship for a missing person.

    Now another case with details I'm never going to forget, cat, lion kidnapper, 2 legged beast, tiger king JC I'm always going to use those telling people about BM. After having my head swirl from that Judge. I had to think again.

    I'm cheering for Suzanne, LE and Justice, I feel BM is tightening his own noose. Daughter signing off to let the noose roll? Who cares if you get to sell property, what goods the cash when your freedom is at risk, after 1/2 mil is burned on legal fees-you poor! Not to mention, if you sell you are only entitled to half. BM has some cash, but he doesn't have THAT kinda cash even w/his biz, property etc, couple mil doesn't mean much when you bottom line things. I'm hoping Daughters come in swinging with an Inheritance Claim on the Estate at some point. IMO

    I hope the influx of cash doesn't fly the coup, to drag things out. I'm think LE is working 6x. BM is no different than LS just different cash n connects to throw in between IMO.

    I couldn't stomach watching that Ty video. It's ODD to me, it so happened BM was there and so willing to show where the bike was and how it happened at the same time Ty was there? That BM knows this and that those details of the bike, YET nothing about the item? How LE messed up n drove over everything. Yet there he is, after they were done. Unless because I didn't watch the video he meets BM and they drive to that spot? Otherwise, I feel P on my leg not rain.

    For the mountain lion attacks, your links/news is for homes. Animals, bears, skunks, go to where there is food. If you want to show me mountain lion attacks for THAT trail THAT location, I'll be interested in those.

    Edit: When searching Dockets/Courts Online, I will say the info as presented, if you want real 100% have to go in person. My personal experience in Online/In person look at files.

    Guardianship In Indiana. Is Person Who Cannot be Located = Incapacitated Person?
    Jurisdiction?

    If two sections below are the applicable definitions for determining whether IN ct may find as fact that SM is unable to be located, making her an incapacitated person for whom a guardian may be appointed, then yes,imo.
    I welcome confirmation, clarification, or correction, esp'ly by our legal professionals.
    Before finding this statute, seemed hinky to me that 'unable to locate' could be a criterion for incapacitated status and guardianship.
    "Sec. 7.5. "Incapacitated person" means an individual who:
    (1) cannot be located upon reasonable inquiry;

    (2) is unable:
    (A) to manage in whole or in part the individual's property;
    (B) to provide self-care; or
    (C) both;
    because of insanity, mental illness, mental deficiency, physical illness, infirmity, habitual drunkenness, excessive use of drugs, incarceration, confinement, detention, duress, fraud, undue influence of others on the individual, or other incapacity;
    or

    (3) has a developmental disability (as defined in IC 12-7-2-61)." * rbm bbm ubm

    "29-3.5-1-2 Definitions
    (7) "Incapacitated person" has the meaning set forth in IC 29-3-1-7.5 with respect to an adult." **

    (See ^ Sec. 7.5 for definition)
    .
    The location of real est within IN likely confers jurisdiction w IN. cts, imo (as discussed earlier in earlier posts).

    What we don´t know is if this was a happily married couple or even a couple separated geographically for practical or medical reasons, did they have two households, who and where did the girls live with? We don´t know and can´t ask

    Unable to locate because I can't find the cat; I tried reaching out to the abductors; SM left and propped up her bike leaving everything else behind in search of a new life. Gosh which door will I pick :D

    So BM enjoys killing deers and moose etc - I wonder where would he dispose of the animal carcusses, would he bury them, throw them out at the tip or is there a special disposal location. Also do hunters dismember the body of their animal victim? I actually hate even thinking about an animal being murdered for sport :( Another thing that interested me is wondering what type of personality traits you would most likely have to assist you to be a good hunter, perhaps traits such as organised, methodical, careful, planning etc.

    @gitana1 :) Interesting.
    Did colleague think it was odd:
    - a missing person could be declared 'incapacitated' (also seemed odd to me before seeing similar IN statute), or
    - guardian or conservator could sell the MisPers/ IncPers's real property?
    Also looks like CA statute permits filing petition for Grdnship, w no specified waiting time for missing persons.
    ^ is the only CA section I read.

    California Code, Probate Code - PROB § 1849.5
    "(a) A petition may be filed under this article regardless of when the proposed conservatee became missing or how long the proposed conservatee has been missing."

    :cool: @gitana Thank you very much for providing us w benefit of your legal expertese.:cool:

    I respectfully disagree. This is a legal contract that SM allegedly already signed prior to being reported missing. BM is legally obligated to fulfill the terms of the contract, regardless of SM's current situation. If SM was found deceased, BM is still legally obligated to fulfill the terms of the agreement. I am not an attorney so I cannot respond to your legal jargon but it is safe to assume that SM signed a contract (probably 30-60 says ago based on the average time to close escrow on a home). He did not just randomly decide to sell this home in the time since SM has been reported missing. Her rights have not been violated regarding the sale of this property if she already signed the Residential Purchase Contract. Whether or not the proceeds of the sale are released to BM, I don't know...and we will not either because we cannot see the wire instructions. BM has not been accused, arrested, convicted of any crime and he is entitled to receive (at a minimum) his share of the proceeds of the home that will be closing escrow. Now, if BM starts selling other properties co-owned by him and SM or owned solely by SM, that does seem a little suspicious, however not prohibited if he has indeed been granted guardianship. He is receiving very good legal advice IMO. All comments MOO

    With the full "Strawberry" moon shining brightly, I pray that Suzanne finds a way to escape from her abductor or that she is finally rescued. I pray that the moon shines brightly on her, whatever her location, so that she may be brought home to her loved ones.
