    I watched the Disappeared episode a couple of weeks ago. It has really bothered me. I feel like the family's silence after the body was found is due to the fact there is an on going investigation that they do not want to jeopardize. They have their son/brother/friend back to give a proper burial to, which as horrible and unbearable as it seems, it is something some families do not have a chance to do. If there is even a slim chance they will find the person responsible (if not a suicide) being silent is a small price to pay. I lost my sister to suicide and know that everyone grieves differently. Some feel the need to be proactive and speak out about suicide prevention, others retreat inward. Whatever their actions, they should not be judged.

    I think of Twitter as analogous to a billboard, but I wonder if she wrongly thought of it as a way to share something with her close friends, not thinking about how it's visible to other people.

    I have this thought when I read people wondering why he would go to the store, play video games, walk in the cold if he was planning to commit suicide. I don't know what makes people commit suicide, but I imagine there's nothing stopping them from doing those things right before they do it.

    What do you mean by that? It was set up to look like suicide? I'm baffled by this case! Completely baffled. I thought suicide, but of course foul play is a possibility.

    And very often they do. The 24 hours leading up to my attempted OD were incredibly normal; I'd made a decision, and I was completely relaxed about it, even though I was only 14. The number of cases I see on here were people give "but they did normal stuff" as a reason why the missing person couldn't have taken their own life, only for it to be obvious that's just what they did do when they were found. The biggest problem is that either the missing person is hiding their real feelings, or the family/friends don't want to publicise their state of mind at the time.

    I cant find the post now but a couple of years ago a lady went missing. Almost everyone here was leaning to foul play, because she had her hair done, bought food and gas, and so on, too "normal" to be the lead up to harming herself.. But then her partner came to Websleuths and told us how she had been the one to find her first husband dead (he'd committed suicide) and he believed that she had gone somewhere to take her own life where her family wouldn't be the ones to find her. I wish I could find the thread because he wrote some heartbreaking but extremely illuminating stuff about the situation.

    I don't know what the situation is with Kelly's case as I've not read the whole thread yet, just wanted to jump off your post and throw this out there.

    Hi All,
    I have been following this thread but just taking in all your excellent comments and not posting myself. I have been checking back from time to time to see if anything new has come up. The other night my daughter and I were doing an ID Disappeared marathon and we pulled up Kelly's episode "On Demand". It brought back all my past interest. I googled a bit and ended up reading a ton of comments from article in the Internet. I found some interesting comments regarding the GF. It seems her FB page has been totally void of anything Kelly. It also appears as though she is in a new realtionship beginning back last summer of 2015. Someone also mentioned that they have mutual friends with Kelly's family and there was a lot to be said about the GF. She was married young but sadly her husband was killed at age 20 in an accident. This seemed to have happened while she was going through a divorce with him. It was also about 10-11 years ago so that would make her around 30 years old. About 5 years older than Kelly. Not a big deal but I also thought it was interesting that it was said she had a very bad past drug problem. Now, it could of course be rumor but I could not help think that if there was foul play involved perhaps the target was the GF that night. Many of us have speculated that she seems to be hiding something. Can't help thinking that if someone was after her and Kelly stepped in, he became a victim. Obviously just a thought. Most of the info that I am sharing here was found on the "Find Kelly Nash" FB page. It appears these comments were further back and shortly after it all happened. Just thought it was time to share this with everyone. Has anyone else heard anything of the such?

    I have never read those specific comments, thanks for posting about the FB page. That's sad/coincidental/suspicious that Kelly's gf had two partners die so young. From what I remember, she was very pretty and didn't look like she had a horrible drug problem. But some people can abuse drugs for years and hold on to their looks.

    I am still hung up on the other man whose remains were found in close proximity to where Kelly was found. Wasn't that thought to be drug related?

    I hope she has found happiness in her new relationship, but I wonder why she doesn't mention Kelly? That bothers me.

    P.S. If Disappeared marathons are what you do with your daughter, your screen name is fitting. :)

    I could not agree with you more about the other body found. Just seems like it has to be more than a coincidence.
    In regards to the girlfriend, I found it very sad that she had no pictures or mention of Kelly. The only place where I saw something was a comment she made to another and said something like "yes, Kelly thought that too" or something along those lines. She has a ton of selfies on the page and it appears that she owns a dog grooming salon.
    I cannot help feeling that there must have been some kind of falling out with Kelly's family. I tend to get stuck in these questions and need to try to figure things out. Did his family never really care for her cause she was a bit older and had a drug history? Or, did they have a falling out after Kelly died and did they think she was involved. Did they think it could have been becaus of her past. If you view her page you would never know that she had a long term relationship that ended so trai ally just a few months before. I get the whole being strong and moving forward thing after a tragic loss, but this just seems a bit much. Thoughts anyone??? A relative of her now deceased first husband even went as far as to suggest that there were unanswed questions about the his "car accident".Weird.

    PS, thanks for the compliment over my name. 😁 yes, my daughter and I enjoy ID Disappeared and lots of the other shows. Have fun watching and spending time together.

    It could be early for some of us. My organization has flex time and I work 10-6, so don't usually get up until 8-8:30. But people in construction usually start super early it seems like.

    Interesting article. It's hard to put your finger on what the parents believe happened. Dad mentions there's unanswered questions and it is still being investigated.

    Yet, I've never come across an article where the family laments that Kelly was taken from them by an unknown assailant or they wish a killer was brought to justice etc. They certainly project a loss but seem to stop short of elaborating any further with their feelings in terms of what may have happened and their expectations of an investigation.

    That is a fast turn around to a new relationship after something that should have been traumatic.

    I just watched the Disappeared episode about Kelly Nash last night. I did not see it when it originally aired. A lot of things don't add up and I suspect foul play.

    It was a frustrating episode to watch because, if you believe Kelly Nash's live-in gf, Jessica Sexton, the time within which Kelly died would have been incredibly short - between 3:30 or 4am and about 7:30am. A lot of times people go missing days or weeks before a search is initiated, and the timeline is much broader than what presents here. The timeline and geography here is incredibly tight/compact. This should be an easy case to solve!

    Forensics on Kelly Nash's xbox is key for reasons I'll explain below.

    The episode had a very sympathetic tone towards Kell's gf of 3 years, Jessica D. Sexton. She was seen crying a lot, which at first viewing seemed genuine(to me, anyway), and she seemed very cooperative with the investigation. Indeed, she called Kelly's dad and in effect initiated the investigation the morning of his death, a few hours after the incident occurred. Many ppl suspect her, and I am one of them. But -- murderers don't usually initiate an investigation into someone's disappearance within hours of killing them (I stress -- *usually*). However, I would still like to know more from her about her relationship with Kelly and what happened the last night she was with him and especially the days and weeks leading up to the night he disappeared.

    I feel like there is more going on there that either Jessica. A lot of the timeline of the night/early morning that Kelly disappeared seems to depend upon us taking Jessica at her word.



    He was seen at 9pm at a convenience store, on store video footage, very close to his house the night before in pajamas, talking with his gf on his cellphone. Dad and friend says going out in pajamas for him to nearby places is not unusual. He went home and couldn't sleep and according to his gf was sneezing and coughing so much from sinusitis (his dad's diagnosis) that she asked him to sleep on the couch. On the couch he played an xbox game on a network vs other players, wearing a headset. She says she woke up at about 3:30am and saw him in the living room still playing the video game. She went back to sleep and woke up about 4 hours later and he was gone, with the basement-garage door open. His xbox game had not been turned off but had "idled out" as if it were abandoned mid-game. He hadn't taken his cellphone (which was found under couch cushion iirc), wallet, and all the normal things he would go leave the house with.

    Forensics needs to be done on the xbox to verify when or if it had indeed been played at all, what time the game began to idle, and what conversations, if any, he had with players over his headset or via text chat, leading up to the game idling. Some have suggested Kelly left the house to kill himself, and he went to the lake to avoid a messy scene for his family. So, he cares that much about them, but leaves the door open downstairs on a night where the temperature is about 32 degrees fahrenheit? (Also, what about his dog - where was the dog found? Episode didn't say.) They later found Kelly's Glock 9mm and a clip of ammo missing from the basement/garage. Had he taken it with him?

    Although the episode portrays Kelly's gf Jessica sympathetically, she needs to be given a polygraph and held to a no-nonsense, strenuous questioning, monitored for suspicious activity after the murder, incl phone tap and if possible texting monitoring. Kelly playing the Xbox at 3:30am - unless forensics on the gaming device bears out that this is true, this is just Jessica's word that she saw him still at the house at that time. If Jessica killed Kelly she could have done it any time after 9pm (last known footage) and would have had all night to clean up and stage the scene. I'm assuming the police combed the house for signs of clean up, etc. Now that his body has been found with a gunshot wound to the head, I hope they had tested her hands for gunshot residue, although I guess at the time of his disappearance they had no reason to do this.

    Was she seeing anyone else? Was he seeing someone else? They had been going out for 3 years. Both her phone and Kelly's phone and any laptops or computers in the house need to be examined forensically to see if any had any secret chatting going on, secret accounts for cheating, what sorts of recent searches had been made ("how to get rid of a body," "how to wipe up blood," etc) or if chat logs etc had recently been deleted to cover stuff up.

    The mysterious muffled phone call from Kelly to Jessica's phone at about 4am is disturbing. I'm assuming this has been analyzed forensically. If the phone was found under couch cushion (who found it there? Jessica? Hmm) he could have rolled over and accidentally "butt dialed" her. A lot of us have had this happen. Or Kelly might have heard a noise outside (but he had an xbox headset on, right? but maybe not continuously), grabbed his gun to go outside and check it out, and then made the phone call under duress after being confronted with one or more people outside pointing guns at him, who convinced him to surrender, and who then walked/kidnapped him over to nearby Lake Lanier, where they shot him and put his body in the lake.

    If gf Jessica is a very savvy killer she could have shot him any time after 9pm and used all night to stage the scene, from leaving the door below ajar (as she claimed it was), to turning on the xbox and leaving it to idle to substantiate her claim he was int he living room, and dumping his body in nearby Lake Lanier. If she had someone come over to kill him (a jealous lover, etc.) this could be the reason she had him sleep out on the couch, because she knew someone was coming and didn't want the intruder coming to do the deed while he was in bed with her. Or a friend/lover and herself killed Kelly and the friend could have speedily walked away to exit the scene after the deed, say, by walking briskly or jogging past the nearby convenience store at about 4am. This is why forensics on Jessica's phone, computer, whatever, are vital, as well as the Xbox. And if Jessica was involved the dog would not have been triggered to bark etc.

    Jessica could have sent Kelly to the convenience store as a ruse, and had the killer come over and get in the house and lay in wait inside for Kelly. Hell, the killer could have been playing the xbox after killing Kelly.

    Kelly's body was found in the lake with a gunshot wound to head. Where was the gunshot wound on the skull? If it is in the back of the head, "execution style," it was probably not suicide. I notice the police have not released this info. I'm guessing this is because the investigation is ongoing and they want to see if someone comes forward with specific info about this sort of thing that no one else would know. Jessica may have called Kelly's dad that morning because she knew he would be agitated and come by anyway that morning, as the dad was expecting Kelly at work. So her call to the dad heads that off at the pass, and also helps exonerate her by making it appear she initiated investigation (although it was Kelly's dad who actually called the police a bit later, iirc.) Killers often initiate investigations or report a body to help eliminate themselves if they feel they are going to be suspect anyway.

    If it's suicide, it's a strange suicide. It means Kelly went out in pajamas at about 4a, when it was close to 32 degrees, with a cold or sinus infection, and was "thoughtful" enough to go shoot himself in the head while he was out in a lake waist deep. I don't know Kelly's psych history or what sorts of stressors etc he had leading up to that night, and stranger things have happened, but the suicide idea just doesn't wash with me.

    Another creepy idea - the two people that got the investigation going, the dad and Jessica, collaborated to kill Kelly. A weird affair between the two, with Kelly getting in the way? Again forensics on Jessica and even dad's phone needed badly. Still, the dad pursued the investigation with such gusto, set up the command center, etc., etc., etc., that it would indeed be sociopathological to an incredible, incredible degree for him to have helped. It doesn't seem likely, although I've wondered about this angle.

    The convenience store parking lot footage that showed a person in the distance walking briskly away from the direction of Kelly's house at about 4am also needs to be looked at prior to that for that same person walking *to* Kelly's house earlier, or to indeed show cars going to or from the direction of the house. If Jessica helped kill Kelly, she could have driven the killer to the house with the understanding he leave on foot afterwards. Jessica's car needs to be searched for DNA. Hopefully this was done within the appropriate time frame of Kelly's disappearance so that any evidence in or on her car would still be intact.

    Certainly I don't see this as a home invasion gone wrong, so if we are to assume Kelly was perhaps ambushed by people who sought out to kill him you have to wonder...why? He didn't seem to be running with the wrong people, no history of drug issues etc.

    I think the gf knows quite a bit more about Kellys mindset his last few days than she is acknowledging, but I'm not entirely sure what her gain would be by having a part in his death.

    They weren't married, the house presumably was not in her name. Although, Kelly probably was poised to follow in his dad's business and do well for himself, he was still apparently working at that.

    Had Kelly been married with joint assets with her I'd would be extremely suspicious but for now I don't see what the gain would be to motivate her into murder.
