    Not necessarily. LE may have suspicions, investigate behind the scenes, rule out the individual’s involvement and move on in their investigation. They could feasibly clear someone not officially named as a POI or suspect. Hypothetically speaking.

    Yeah, it was a weak attempt to explain why they thought she was there. This will all make sense later when she's found and we have more information.

    Could you maybe pull that off with $300k equity in the previous home?

    Finances have gotta be tricky right now, however they did it. Construction has ground to a halt (at least 'til recently) or at least the weather hasn't been summer-y enough yet to do a whole lot of landscaping. Then there's a move and starting all over again with your business. Gosh knows what the state of the real estate market is, and people are shifting ideas about what they need in a house; e.g. private spaces have suddenly become more of a thing than "open concept." The stock market tanked for a while, and investors must have been getting margin calls up the ying yang... All of these items could be factors in this case.

    That has been on my mind since the start, whomever harmed,kidnapped or murderd her would not leave that ring behind if in fact she is deceased. If it shows up that will be a big red flag, because she appears in most pics to have it on.

    Agreed.
    I'm very interested in what led LE there.
    Doubtful it was a disgruntled employee or close friend.

    A large amount of damage for what reason ?
    My initial thought was HRD dogs.
    Not going to discount that avenue just yet.

    I also want to know what LE found at that house.
    It looked like items were being carried out.

    If there's a confession; my guess is that it could be the employee or close friend.
    Because the perp will never confess; imo.

    That's a bit silly, isn't it? Someone saw something on Facebook and then broadcast that someone made investigators "act the way they did" and call S&R to find a missing cyclist?

    Maybe not. Maybe the big question is why the family assumed that Suzanne vanished during a short cycling trip rather than she fell down the stairs, or tumbled down a ravine during a hike. Falling down the stairs dizzy spell seems more likely for a cancer survivor, not marathon cycling.

    It’s also strange because they moved to a new state. Starting a new business. It’s harder to get a mortgage in that situation. How do you know your new business in your new state is going to do well enough to support your new mortgage? I’d understand more if they moved for a salaried job - you know what you’re making. But this seems weird?

    Maybe they have family money so this is all moot!

    "Asked if he was concerned about the possibility that Suzanne was abducted, Bertram said, “I think the family thinks that’s what happened to her.”"

    Bertram says he has not spoken directly with BM, but that he has spoken with firefighters who have spoken with BM.

    So it seems clear to me where the abduction theory may have originated, IMO.

    Barry should have some proof that he was actually in Denver. Receipts for incidentals such as gas, hotel, food etc. LE would have been able to trace all this within days of SM first missing. What is Barry’s phone showing?

    I know a 50s something couple who struggled to buy a shabby house, and did not bring in much as far as salary, then his father died. They then bought a 900K place.

    This reporter said she had covered a lot of missing person’s cases, but this wasn’t following the usual patterns. She had a long list of things that she took as signs that they didn’t think she had been abducted. She’s covering the case, she didn’t get this from Facebook.

    I think you misunderstood. The reporter did a live video ON Facebook. She did not report info FROM a Fakebook video :)

    Not sure it’s the same in the US, but here in Canada any member of the public can do a title search on a property at the Land Registry Office, identifying the owner and also the mortgage holder and the mortgage amount and any line of credit that is secured on the property. $20 CDN :)

    ETA: And, you can also do a Personal Property search which will tell you if there’s a lien against a car and other registered liens.

    You’re right. I added this to my post. It was on the hot mic convo.

    I don’t think we even have reliable confirmation he’s told anyone he was in Denver/at training.

    There seems to be confusion in the media about where he was. Even in the same article - clips below. Probably just sloppy reporting. I’m sure someone knows where BM was. Well, at least BM would know. o_O

    “Barry, 52, was not home the day Suzanne disappeared and relatives said he was away on a training course for his job as a volunteer firefighter in Denver.”

    “Bertam says that there was no training the weekend Suzanne went missing and believes Barry had been in Denver for a landscaping job.”

    I’m going to assume it was because of CoronaVirus closures
