    Based on another Florida case it is 5 years. Isabella Hellmann's husband requested a letter from the Coast Guard stating her presumed death: http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sh...017-2&p=13498234&highlight=death#post13498234

    Correct me if I am wrong, but WSers have been important in helping resolve some MP cases.

    In the Abraham Shakespeare case, (he had won a $19 million Florida State Lottery), WSers studied aerial maps and noticed a difference in the backyard of Deedee Moore's brother. A hole had been dug and a concrete slab had been poured. These WSers notified the authorities, who in turn went to the property, did some investigating and discovered Abraham Shakespeare's decomposed body under that concrete slab. Deedee had his cell phone and had been trying to convince people he was still alive and had left and just wanted to be left alone, while she moved into his mansion and spent all her money on herself. She was convicted of his murder. (She had also made an account here at WS and was trying to throw the investigation here off track.)

    Also, two of our sleuthers finally got their hands on case notes from the Casey Anthony case. In the notes they discovered proof that it was Casey Anthony who was logged into the computer that day and not her mother and that Casey had Google searched information of suffocation, (spelling it wrong when she did so.) This information never was introduced in court, yet it was in the notes acquired by our WSers gain by the FOIA.

    Over on the Unidentified Persons side of WS, our members have made countless matches and given unidentifed persons their name back after years of being Jane and John Does.

    WS is filled with loving and compassionate people, trying to help families find their loved ones. We care. We cry when our missing people are found dead. We are outraged when they are found murdered. We invest our time and emotions into the missing. We feel the families pain. We throw things out that sometimes may sound outrageous but it's because we already ran into it in other cases. We ask questions that may seem intrusive but it usually helps to understand our victim better and leads us to other ideas and directions.

    Do we have a glowing percentage of success? No, but Abraham Shakespeare would still be under that concrete slab and Deedee Moore would have lived high off the hog on his money until it was gone, having gotten away with murder. And even solving that one case, makes the hours we put into this worth it.

    Getting off my soapbox now.

    I’m not familiar with cashiers checks, but can the bank trace them to see if they have been cashed and if they have where at?

    TIA

    Bravo! Even if we have only helped in a small fraction of cases that cross our screens, it means everything in the world to the families that are able to bring their loved ones home with our help.

    And if I'm not mistaken, countless times LE has contacted Tricia Griffith, owner of WS for our help on their cases. Some of our membership are experts in the field of profiling and some of these famous cases. Attorneys for clients have come here to see what we have found that can help their cases.

    We try to think outside the box. We lose sleep over these cases, we have dreams and nightmare about these cases. Many of us live, eat and breathe these cases here, just to help families find out what happened to their loved ones and to give them closure.

    Sometimes family and friends are too emotionally involved to think of the things we come up with. Sometimes family and friends are not forthcoming with vital information.

    Recently we had a case where the question of drug usage came up. Friends were saying no, not ever and got insulted by the question. Yet MSN quoted law enforcement as saying she had just gotten out of drug rehab. With the drug culture included, our MP was in a higher risk category, and would have people she hung out with who could possibly harm her or abuse her, or in the very least, some of her statements would not be true because of her hiding her drug activity. We needed that information to look in a different direction.

    We don't judge here. We just want the missing person to be brought home safely to their loved ones. It takes special people to want to rack their brains and spend hours researching to bring answers to families.

    Ok, so for whatever reason we can’t know why posters and SMS are not being used, except for the PI. Making a map was deemed appropriate by us, but not a VI. I’m not yelling here, but,

    HOW THE HECK ARE WE SUPPOSED TO HELP IF WE ARE HITTING ROADBLOCKS?

    We need these things. They are important, so we can help. That’s why we are here. There are HUGE chunks of information that we need to generate new ideas and viewpoints. If not we are literally just grasping at straws and, sorry, wasting time. I’m not understanding this at all. All this secretive stuff is not helping anyone.

    The only person that appears to be mobilized, forthright, and active is the PI. I’m sorry. I’m not discounting both VIs and I know they are going through hell. But, this clandestine approach is useless.

    For example, who is saying don’t share this or that? Who is guiding the VIs to say certain things, but not other things? I just don’t get it.

    Please someone agree with me, because I’m frustrated and need to know others are too. SMH

    First to drjmcope - I agree with you.

    Second, to Gardener. Amazing work on the timeline. Thank you so very much.

    Third, from Gardener's timeline, let's do some math:

    12 June 2017 – Taylor withdrew $100,000 from bank account after it was unfrozen by the courts

    8 Sept 2017 – Taylor allegedly seen with backpacks containing $30,000 in cash and $30,000 in cashier’s checks.


    $100,000 - $60,000 = $40,000. Where is the $40K?

    She also left $19,000 in Cashiers checks at home.

    Oh yes, that too.

    I was referencing the specific day at the bank. $40K is...? someplace. :thinking: or given to someone that day?

    Yes, thank you so much Gardener for the amazing timeline. We needed that. I know you poured your heart and soul and countless hours into put it together for us. You are amazing.

    A lot of people think they are doing something but WS is similar to watching Dateline or a real time mystery novel. I don't think insiders gain much by posting here and a lot get scrutinized unfairly. It is what it is - entertainment.

    Respectfully, I disagree. Of all the cases I've followed this one has probably had the most information and first hand accounts of the victim. I think we were spoiled with two fairly responsive VIs. Now the steady stream of info has stopped and people don't know what to do or talk about, which causes frustration.

    IMO, directing that frustration toward VIs could deter others from being a VI on this or other cases.

    We don't know for sure how much was in the safe deposit box. The $19,000 Check could be part of the original $100,000 withdrawn in June.

    Fleurde told us the case is being investigated. I believe her. There is obviously a lot going on behind the scenes that we don't know about. As frustrating as it is for us to wait for progress, it's even more so for Taylor's loved ones. I'm sure fleurde will continue reading here and will keep working with the detectives just as she has done all along. I think it's important to provide links to agencies that might be able to offer assistance and to keep posting ideas that might help somehow. We can complain all day (and yes, I know I'm guilty too), but it will be more productive for us to stop criticizing and start brainstorming. And you know what? Maybe we are worthless in the grand scheme of things, but by George, we'll at least get an A for effort.
