    Yup. Makes no sense. He was already up in Broomfield, prepping the site. Barry himself said he left his tools in a hurry and headed back home. MG said that the tools were left in a motel cart, and both MG and JP said that there were no tools necessary to complete the job that they had been sent up there to do.

    Agree. Only behavior before the call is really relevant.
    Lack of effort isn't evidence nor laying down.
    Some behaviors arouse the suspicion with police because its something they see repeatedly in certain cases, but usually that's their confidential professional opinion among their peers.

    I didn’t mean forget. I meant not finishing the prep. But I don’t know what all was expected.

    When this initially happened I thought accident, then I wondered if something like your suggestion had happened.
    But the circumstantial evidence makes it almost impossible for me to believe that any more . The abrupt end to texting and then not getting back in touch just says that something happened on that Saturday. Along with the rushed unplanned job, the bleach , the GPS gaps according to AM, But especially the stop in communication.
    As for domestic violence in the marriage, alot of very strong characters of both sexes have had some instance of dv and are still married it's nothing to do with 'inner strength' or being weak it is much more complicated than that.

    An abduction was a real possibility in the Elizabeth Smart case.

    Here it looks like law enforcement became privy to information that ruled it out in those early hours and days.

    The reward in and of itself, while odd, isn’t incriminating. It’s the fact that someone willing to offer a reward that size, was unwilling to actually make a media appeal. That is incriminating.

    I’ve followed countless abduction cases over the years; the only time I have ever seen this behavior is from a guilty person.

    I find it so very interesting he chose to do both of those things "in support of Barry". I've pondered over the possible reasons for quite some time now.

    The TN mystery deepens, when he seemingly vanishes after a week or two. No more media interviews or involvement with the Facebook page or Gimme Fund.

    All so very mysterious, just like Suzanne's disappearance.

    You may be right, the CBI warned him and he chose to be unseen going forward. I say unseen, because just like his uncle Barry, he never appeared on-camera in any interview. Those Morphews are a shy bunch aren't they?

    Poor Suzanne probably walked on eggshells all the time. I can't wrap my head around the fact she had been suffering from cancer and had to deal with him, too. God bless her.

    Well, the first thing that comes to my mind is you would think he would bring all the tools needed to do the job seeing when he allegedly left at 5 am on Mother’s Day his wife was not missing yet, was she?? Why, oh why did he not bring the right tools? Because he was preoccupied setting up his alibi and disposing of SM. MOO

    There are similarities in this case to other ‘well known’ spousal murders. But what I’m interested in hearing is, what makes this case specifically unique?
    I’ve heard all about the similarities but I would like to hear what makes BM different from the Chris Watts and Patrick Frazees of this world?

    Speaking of the Broomfield job. Lauren Sharf never told us what she learned about Barry's wall job did she?

    It’s remarkable really. It’s not uncommon for the family of a missing person to appoint a family spokesperson.

    I’ve never seen the spokesman demand that his face not be shown though.

    The faceless “face of the family.”

    Hey, if you're a cat, 210k'll buy you a lot of Meow Mix.

    Hard to believe Tony the Tiger hasn't bitten on that offer of a reward yet.

    No pictures of him searching either, not one.

    But then again there aren't any of his good friend GD either.

    They all may simply have an aversion to appearing on camera, nothing unusual about that at all.

    I'd say that, amid the many ways they're the same, they differ in one. Occupation.

    It'll factor. Watch.

    People do what they know.

    Chris Watts is a “family annihilator.” These are killers with a very specific pathology. They are quite unique when it comes to murderers on the whole.

    John List, Bradford Bishop, Chris Coleman; they all wanted a fresh start. They were willing to kill their entire families to achieve that.

    Patrick Frazee is a much more common type of killer. He decided to kill Kelsey because he saw some gain (full custody).

    This case probably is much like the Frazee case. The difference though, and the reason that it has garnered so much attention, is that it appeared to be an abduction.

    It’s rare for a low risk victim to be abducted in a low crime area, especially in broad daylight.

    Add in the fact that this appeared to be the quintessential American family, and you have a major news story.

    Someone screwed up, big time.

    Thank you so much for saying that last part about DV. I truly wasn’t aware that in this day and age some people think that only certain “types” can be involved in DV situations.

    I realize now after some posts that perhaps our nation as a whole needs to do better in educating others of the realities of domestic violence. Unfortunately, DV happens in ALL walks of live, no matter race, economic status, gender, religion or education. I should know. Consider yourself lucky if you’ve never been or known anyone that’s been affected by DV.

    I’m an educated person with a degree, and I consider myself a strong person for dealing with several obstacles thrown my way very early on in life, but I fell victim to domestic violence nonetheless. However, I made it out and became even stronger as a result. I have a feeling SM was finding her strength again and something went horribly wrong.

    Then you find someone to do it, like in just about every case like this ever.

    I have never seen this before.
