    'We have found this child': Lonzie Barton search ends after 172 days

    [​IMG]

    What was expected to be the start of trial for Ruben Ebron, the man considered the chief suspect in the child’s July 24 disappearance, devolved in a flood of surprising developments Monday. First, just minutes before lawyers were set to begin jury selection in the high-profile trial, Ebron’s defense team sought a continuance, waiving his right to a speedy trial after weeks of declining to make that request. That decision pushed at least until next Tuesday any legal proceeding in the case.

    Bringing over Saveritt post from last thread

    " Have ya'll noticed that the house that the dinosaur sits in front of is blue? IMO no way she would have been able to see the color in the dark 


    I wonder how much difference it would have made if the police had found this house and knew this?

    I'm surprised she could see the fountain and the elephant as she is so young, isn't it hard to see out of a car window when young and small? also I wonder if they got out of the car?

    ETA I cannot upload the picture from my phone ...durn

    Is this house with the fountain and dinosaur the route RE would have to take? So many people, including LE were working very hard to find Lonzie. I hope we can learn something from each case to help with the next one. Maybe in this case it was possible the mention of a dinosaur wasn't received as accurate. However, it would have been a nice detail to give the public, maybe? I don't see how this would have affected the search or something LE would want to be kept quiet because only the perp would know.

    We all, including LE wanted to find Lonzie and the cause of his death. What really, really upsets me is how did this child see and remember the dinosaur. I guess I'm ready to accept the possibility Lonzie was gone before it got dark. That is so hard to take, does anyone else have an idea how the child could have noticed this if it was dark?

    Do many here believe now that Lonzie was gone before Lonna went to work? Lonna said the kids were in the back seat and she kissed them, at some point the little girl was in the front seat...like at the ATM, correct? Where was Lonzie? When LE stated early in the case they believed Lonzie was gone they must have had some evidence to support that theory. Was it the blood in the apartment. Honestly wish a jury could hear all the evidence and let a jury decide.

    Clarification to my post above. I was not speaking to holding this information back.

    My wonder is if they found the dinosaur and fountain on their own . before the plea deal only .. if that would have affected the plea deal if they had know that before.

    Are we positive they did not know about this?

    From the last thread:

    I had a feeling the BBM parts were more important than was originally reported. I really really wish they had also shared this dinosaur information and the "lit" parts with the public. We here in WS probably would have found the place right away. Poor little girl. I hope charges on behalf of this young lady are brought up against those 3 evil people as well. They have ruined her life and it will be a miracle if she grows up to be a normal, productive adult.

    It's spring like weather here in CA, the trees are blossoming, and I've been noticing a new blue jay in my back yard... and it always makes me think of Lonzie the blue eyed boy.

    Mantei: #LonnaBarton and Ruben Ebron have different versions of what happened to Lonzie, neither can be disproved by evidence.

    I don't recall reading anything about Lonna's version - did I miss something?

    For that matter all I've read about Ebron's version is they put Lonzie in the bathtub and locked him in the bathroom so they could have "make-up sex" after fighting over Lonzie's injuries and found him dead afterwards.

    Jenna Bourne ‏@jennaANjax 2m2 minutes ago
    Defense attorney: #LonnaBarton took Lonzie to doctor for sister pushing him down the stairs. Healing rib fractures may be related.

    Yeah, right...

    She'll get more time for her drug bust then her neglect of her son.

    I bet RE is in an outrage.
