    Recall the Mollie Tibbetts case. The FBI obtained a search warrant for her home five days after her disappearance, despite there being no evidence at that time that she was the victim of foul play.

    The perp would have wanted the bike to be found, if they left it propped up or failed to hide it after Suzanne propped it up.

    That’s my point bc clearly an alibi isn’t rock solid if you are being treated as a suspect.

    The last post on that page was BM's plea to the unknown person(s) who may have taken Suzanne o_O

    Thank you for this. I listened to the podcast and found it frustrating as times. NG talks over and interrupts her guests often. The first podcast I ever listened to of hers was the one on missing child Serenity Dennard. It was so full of false info by NG and her other guests with the exception of the gentlemen from the Polly Klass Foundation, he was on point.

    Edited to add: IMO

    This post lands at random.

    It is okay to link to an obituary that is found as a result of sleuthing the victim. You can paraphrase here without using names, but do NOT sleuth or bring the names of any of those individuals to this discussion.

    For example: mother is deceased, there are X siblings

    Hope that clarifies.

    A couple things that have crossed my mind. We don't know for sure if and when the neighbor said she saw SM riding her bike.
    Also, if she saw someone on Mother's Day, can she be certain if was SM?

    Good afternoon sleuthers! Or what do we call ourselves? I’m brand new here and I am obsessed! I took part in the SM live chat last night and couldn’t wait to get all my chores done this morning so I could get back on here!!! Anyway so I’m trying to quote K9 Enzo here because I feel the same way as what she said. I love when my husband is gone out of town and I have the house to myself! I can do what I want, watch what I want, eat what I want, walk dogs, take long bath, drink wine & stay online for hours! Lol :D I have an older child who was away at college (b4 Covid) and if she would have had other plans on Mother’s Day weekend we would just celebrate Mother’s Day another day or go out for dinner probably after MD when it’s less crowded (again b4 Covid). As long as she called me on MD I’d be good and I would hope my spouse would acknowledge MD in some small way if he were gone perhaps leave me a card or small gift or flowers but I wouldn’t mind if he was not home...quite the opposite! So if SM was home alone on MD and she wanted to take a bike ride right before sunset in the beautiful area where she lives then I don’t find that odd at all. But not taking her cell phone in case of an emergency is a red flag to me. And we still don’t know if she did or didn’t take the phone right? But I’m quite sure LE knows if she took her phone and has a record of all pings, calls & texts that transpired. There is so much going on behind the scenes that we don’t know and it’s so frustrating. After years of watching Dateline my mind goes to the spouse and I hope for the daughters sake that is wrong and they will not lose both parents. Further I hope & pray above all else that she will still be found alive!! And that BM is innocent and we will all feel guilty as hell for thinking otherwise. <modsnip: not victim friendly>

    Yes, that's true. In a situation where someone said something to someone that someone else said, it's just too many "someone's" for me.

    That's why I would like some clarification as to whether or not Suzanne actually went out on a bike ride that day or not.

    I'm not even sure what the DM's source was that the bike was found on a bridge. They refer to local sources but don't really say how they obtained the information.

    Imo

    That timing is certainly very interesting.

    Has Suzanne's nephew (who was running the FB Missing page) been interviewed by the media since the video was posted on the Missing page? I'm thinking not, but my memory is faulty.

    To be clear, I'm very much on the fence, but also very much leaning with my heart. Because that's how I want it to go.

    Thank you @sillybilly for the clarification above! :)

    First time I ever heard her, was the Caylee Anthony case.
    I knew 2 people directly involved in that case (I never followed here) and I knew for a fact she was dead wrong about a handful of things she was reporting on at the time and it drove me nuts.
    I was folding laundry and I threw bundled socks and stuff at the tv, and yelled to hubby "you know she's lying!" and he just sort of laughed and said "I know, but what are you going to do about it?".

    That was my intro, to Nancy Grace. o_O

    Is it normal for the family spokesperson to never go on tv? I haven’t even seen his face.

    Great post and thank you! Where do you think the bike was found?

    Later MSM articles describe “a bridge” as where the bike was found - nearby or at we don’t know. The search areas were around CR 225/Hwy 50 and then later slightly up west to Monarch Pass.

    Which river, creek, or gully crossing would you most say a layperson would describe as a “bridge” and not a culvert?

    But she hasn’t been found and they are supposedly treating the case as a missing person.

    So if a person is just missing and no foul play suspected there is no reason to take the phone of a spouse immediately, what would be the point?

    Why take a phone before a body is found confirming foul play in a missing person case unless that person is very much suspected of foul play regardless of where or what they claim? Hence no rock solid alibi

    Just seems like one more sign that they all have a good idea what happened. There just doesn't seem to be any urgency in terms of keeping this in the public's consciousness.

    Agreed. It came across to me as if they don’t think they will need any of the footage bc they have a good idea what happened already and that was more of a safer than sorry thing, save your video bc we may want it later after arresting the culprit for further proof of the crime committed.

    They would be making pleas to the public to send in home video if they didn’t have a clue what happened, so clearly they know something

    Depends on what it is to be tested, what test(s) need to be performed, which specialist/scientist, if testing can be done in-house or needs to be sent elsewhere, what else is in the queue or a higher priority, etc, etc. Could be anywhere from a couple weeks to months. And things being tested aren't all ready at one time.
