    ADMIN NOTE:

    Had a chance to speak with Tricia tonite and it is decided to leave the recently 'found' t-shirt out of the discussion for now. We're not real confident in the source or that it is a legitimate find and don't want members going down that rabbit hole if it's not related to the case. If it is a legit find and has been turned over to LE, nothing lost.

    Basically everything else from last nights post remains the same. In summary:

    Discussion of the Adventures with Purpose search is approved (minus any/all references to psychic intervention)
    Tube Crime is not approved
    T-shirt talk is off limits for now

    One other thing makes it just about impossible for it to have been anyone other than BM.

    Suzanne’s phone.

    If Suzanne’s phone was turned on after BM left, then he’s pretty much cleared (at least as far as being her killer).

    Obviously that isn’t the case.

    Some day in the future, we will learn that Suzanne’s phone went dark before Barry left that morning.

    She didn’t check it when she woke up.

    She didn’t check it to communicate with her daughter’s on Mother’s Day.

    She didn’t turn it on before she went on that “bike ride.”

    Because she was dead.

    Exactly.

    Her phone is a BIG problem.

    Especially if it ceased pinging on Saturday at 8:30, 12:30, 2:30 or 9:30.

    Because the girls were away, there was extra time for clean up, concealment, staging, and alibi building. None of which accounts for all those hours of radio silence from Suzanne.

    Anyone want to guess where HIS phone pinged when HER phone stopped pinging?

    That's going to be a problem. For the defense.

    Didn't Andy mention something about Suzanne's phone being turned off by 8:00 am on Saturday morning? I remember being confused by that because of the communication between Suzanne and her friend about the wedding on Saturday. Her friend was said to have been diligently trying to reach her after the conversation ended abruptly. She would probably know approximately when the phone went dead.

    Of course none of the details have been confirmed, so it could be that Andy spoke to several people who told him different things. It's also possible that Suzanne commuicated with more than one person on Saturday. Imo

    I wonder if the communication with the wedding friend on Saturday was perhaps accomplished via a tablet or a laptop rather than a phone?

    That would mean her phone ceasing to ping at a specific time would be uncoupled from her last contact with that friend.

    Although -- if her phone was shut off first, and done in violence/against her will, or even just "oops, dropped it and broke it", it seems like SM might have mentioned that to her friend. Or -- perhaps not, if she didn't want to spoil the wedding day mood of her friend...

    Sorry for disjointed thoughts here, just musing. MOO

    If Suzanne had a "secret admirer" who was obsessed with her, wouldn't it make more sense for him to kill Barry?

    I agree. The phone is really a problem for BM. I am sure LE knows much more than we do. When it was on , off .....and really if it was off long before the supposed " bike ride", why isn't it home? Who takes a dead cell phone on a bike ride? That cell may well be his undoing.

    Yep. The entire secret admirer thing is of course far-fetched (but vaguely hinted at by BM <modsnip>, a mountain lion, a roadside abductor). Whatever BM has decided is going to be his main story, he has managed to "terrify" the daughters out of living in the Puma Path home.

    That would make more sense, but I thought after the search was over he said he had discovered it was at 8:00 am. It was after he had already mentioned the 3 1/2 hour time gap, and we've been trying to figure out the timeline ever since.

    Yes, we've heard several different versions concerning the time of the conversation and when it suddenly ceased.

    I think at first the PE guys said they were communicating via SM or Facebook, and then later it was said they were texting by phone? I'm not sure now and I can't remember the latest details about that. Maybe it was both, at different times. They were reportedly communicating throughout the day.

    At some point someone must have called her and it went straight to voicemail, which may have been the time the phone was powered down or the battery died. I think that may be what Andy was referring to when he said the phone was dead. Imo

    Speculation :
    BM cannot, repeat, cannot have those girls seeing what was damaged or deliberately removed by investigators during the first or second searches !

    I'm curious if there's been any interest and if the potential buyer has requested a visual inspection ?
    As in here are few people who would put out the cash for a home before seeing it in person.
    And if someone has been shown the property by a realtor, I'd like to know what they've observed.

    Been thinking.

    There's always How Things Were Supposed To Go and How Things Went.

    For example, it's possible no one went into the weekend with murder on the menu.

    But let's say things escalated overnight on Friday. An escalation that threatened one person's careful construct of control. Let's say Saturday morning, that same person was desperate to change the other person's mind, perhaps the only way he knew how. Control, coercion, appeal to Christianity, appeal to guilt. Appeal to whatever worked in the past. And when none of that worked, appeal through force.

    Suddenly one person has blood on his hands, symbolically or otherwise. Past the point of no return, BUT outside that perimeter, no one knows. And there's no one left INSIDE the perimeter but him. Sets to work cleaning, hiding... thinking. Still has time, no one else is home, feels he can dodge social media. Just has to think of a way for it to look Like He Didn't Do It. While it's still Saturday. Maybe he staged something on Saturday that went unnoticed and he had to up the ante for Sunday. Maybe he felt safe through Saturday so wanted Saturday to appear as business as usual. Spied around town in Salida. AS his alibi, in case she or her absence were noticed.

    Because really, if he wanted an alibi that half-worked, shouldn't he have driven straight up to Broomfield on SATURDAY, to say he was working ALL weekend. A home invasion gone bad would've been more credible than a next-day bike ride.

    As tragic as this all is, as much distancing as he tries to put out there, he can't steal her memory from those who hold her close.

    I agree.

    If her phone went off air anytime Saturday then if she supposedly went on a bike ride Sunday and took her phone with her Sunday, then why wasnt it turned on again before the ride? Most everyone would at least turn it on to check its battery if they were taking it on a bike ride.

    If she didnt take it with her where the bike was found then it should have still been at the house.

    If her phone records dont make sense with the bike ride story, then the bike ride story dont make sense.
    JMO of course.

    Ive been following along and patiently waiting for justice in this case. I sure hope LE can get whatever evidence they need someday soon.

    To me, once you prove the bike is staged, you have your murderer. There is only one person who is going to go to the trouble of staging the bike to throw off the police.

    That's why BM is so upset that police botched the bike evidence...

    eta: I realize that LE has to put the pieces of the puzzle together to convince a jury of this, and it takes time, especially, without a body.

    If we had access to LE files, we’d see every single bit of evidence points to BM. They know without a shadow of a doubt who did this, but they only have one chance to get a conviction. Without a body, they need concrete evidence that a defense team won’t be able to explain away.

    <modsnip> No one wants to believe someone you love could be capable of doing something so heinous. I rewatched the videos of Cindy Watts last night and it was like watching Cindy Anthony all over. You can tell deep down they know the truth, but they absolutely don’t want to believe they raised someone who did the unthinkable. I’m definitely not defending them, but I also couldn’t imagine being in that situation. This is just my two cents for the day. However, anyone that is still riding the fence... LM KNOW who is responsible for SM’s disappearance. This will be evident once the truth comes out.
