    I’ve had this thought as well. I typed it out and deleted it several times over the last few days...
     


  2. Interesting theory. We shall see!

    She doesn’t have any known mental health issues and is not an adolescent. I believe very strongly if she had have committed suicide she would have been found by now. It takes active concealment for a person or body to be missing for this long typically. I was in no way referring to a suicidal situation, which of course can be done by anyone in any situation. People sometimes call suicide selfish. What would you call it when someone willingly takes off and hurts everyone they know and steals resources in doing so? Way beyond selfish. This is comparing apples to oranges. I was discussing the likelihood of a woman her age deciding to leave voluntarily.

    I read that cadaver dogs had been taken out, and I did think it might have been in that area. But, no idea what resolution, if any took place.

    Wouldn't it just be cheaper, and a lot less hassle, to hire women who offer up what you want willingly?

    As this case spins down to the presser moved to Friday, I can only wonder what the heck? She seems like a nice, serious college student who took care of her responsibilities. All I can think of at this moment is some crazy perv saw her out jogging, and took advantage of an opportunity to do what that type does.

    If it’s anything more than that (and it could be it was more of a domestic situation *unlikely* but possible ), I don’t see anything from what I have read in the media that would explain it. Plus, there is no body. You would think with the investigative forces out there on the possible routes she took, cadaver dogs were actively searching, although to be fair, the only mention of cadaver dogs I see is at a pig farm.

    But who would choose to leave this way when it would hurt so many people? Just to avoid a proposal. This seems so crazy to me. She could have just moved to Cali with her dad, with no explanation owed to boyfriend. Why go to such lengths? To me the only thing that could make a person decide to do it this way, would be incredible trouble coming up (ie, she murdered or raped or kidnapped someone and was going to be caught or stole a massive amount of money or got caught up in something too shameful to face), not an impending proposal.

    Not if you are deviant. They like the control, the pursuit, the suffering. Sadists are rare, but they exist.

    Didn’t anyone learn anything from the Holly Bobo case I’m speaking of policeman, detectives, relatives. ,. They kept all their their information close to the vest and look how it turned out. The town of Parsons knew who had kidnapped and killed Holly within weeks of her of duction. iMO

    This happened on the 16th, right? It was reported at 6:48 pm, but could have been at any time that day, I assume.

    I really don't know how a stalker thinks, but the repeated interviews by LE, and his answers, are still curious.

    I think you mean Dark Web. Your point is worth noting. It may seem incredible, but there are more people in slavery today than at any other time in human history. However, in this case it remains most likely that MT knew the person. If you wanted to recruit young girls for a slave ring, it's not very practical to target someone like MT. The people usually exploited in such situations are foreign, non-english speaking, illegal, runaways, at risk teens - there are millions of them.
     
  13. Purely speculative on my part as I think about what the Dad said in his interview today. We've gone through on here the types of cases that the FBI handles so maybe the person involved with MT touches one of these issues? Could also be law enforcement involvement in some way as this would necessitate FBI taking over the investigation I believe. I'm not sure how to handicap which of the various options available at this point as I was hoping for some information to come out from LE but this hasn't happened. TOS limit possible discussion of topic here but there must be a reason that the FBI has stayed involved IMO.

    I don't have the evidence to back this up, but a rising sophomore likely does not have much of any knowledge regarding clinical psychology.

    I believe at first we were told that he texted her in the morning to see if she needed a ride home from work that day, the same as he took her home from work the day before.

    Good point. It used to be thought that the FBI could only become involved in interstate crimes -- cross state lines. That 'red line' was passed some time ago.

    The link to the FBI page is below. Here is the only FBI qualification I can see: The FBI concentrates on crime problems that pose major threats to American society. Significant violent crime incidents such as mass killings, sniper murders, and serial killings can paralyze entire communities and stretch state and local law enforcement resources to their limits. Violent Crime — FBI

    Why didn't the FBI become involved in other missing persons around Iowa (say)? Good question.

    1. Cybercrime
    2. The reason above which is chilling

    Thank You! As you've probably figured, I am not a woman named Sharon. I'm actually a 52 yo father of two teenage girls and I live about 30 miles from Brooklyn in a small Iowa town. Of course this case scared the hell out of all of us and we're all on the edge of our seat now waiting for the next development. And me? I'm obsessed with this until I know what the hell actually happened!

    Agreed. It's the only thing I am certain of in this case!
     
  20. How about Deep/Dark Web as its pretty slimey down there!? Long time ago when the internet was just being started some referred to the areas online that couldn't be easily accessed (in comparison to what became the easy searchable sites) as 'deep areas' as they were somewhat harder to get to unless you knew how. Sorry I just used the old vernacular. You are correct that most refer to some of these areas as Dark Web today. But whats interesting is that now even huge parts of the so called Dark Web are searchable so its not as dark as it used to be. Interesting times.
