    I am wondering why her disappearance was not initially classified as "INVOLUNTARY"

    It is day 35! Some folks here keep talking about how efficient and expert LE has been throughout this case.

    The news I am hearing on the hour today just keeps ratcheting up the fact this missing person case is now a DEATH investigation which officials deem as "Foul Play".

    So my question = are they going to change the classification NOW? If they don't, then that annual report they handled out and wanted to emphasize the majority of missing in IA are runaways just gives me greater pause.

    I'd like to know the source of this pin drop too, since I am now speculating based on that information someone posted here.

    For those that are interested this explains the basics of decomposition.

    Fingers crossed that the bad news of the body being found comes with good news at the press conference that a perp has been caught

    I hope not, I would hate to think of her suffering that long. I dont think we can assume she has only been dead 2 weeks, we dont have enough to go on.

    It's also the sort of rural, secluded spot where underage kids in this part of the country often go to drink beer.

    There are dozens of scenarios that can't be ruled out, and the fact that they're neither announcing that a suspect is in custody or warning folks to be on the lookout for one makes me feel like a tragic accident is a strong possibility.

    But I'm like Sergeant Schultz, "I know NOTHING!" It's all just speculation until 4:00.

    East of 21. The picture of the blockade is on the East side of road. Google street view.

    Me too. Mollie looks just like my sister-in-law. When I first saw the case my husband did a double-take thinking it was his sister. It completely pulled me back into WS and I've been looking for ways to volunteer to give back more in my downtime. These cases are so awful but there are always rays of light. I think Rob is going to ensure Mollie's legacy lives on in so many ways.

    IMHO, WC is a man with a record for stalking an ex and he just so happens to live somewhere near where Mollie's digital footprint was. He was questioned and polygraphed by LE, and cyber tarred and feathered by the media and public opinion. LE had to rule him out due to his past. I seriously doubt that he had anything to do with Mollie's disappearance. MOO

    I hate to say this but knowing the outcome right now I hope she passed when she first went missing. I would hate to know that she was being held for all that time and so close and the outcome is this. Held and found alive - that would have been an answer to much prayer! I'm just glad that her family can properly take care of her now with the respect she deserves.

    I expect all suspicious deaths mandate an autopsy.

    She could have been held captive and killed later. The decomposition of her body and other evidence should give some indication of this.

    I highly doubt we're going to get more at 4:00 other than:

    - MT's body has been found and general location it was found at
    - Condolences to her family and friends
    - LE suspects foul play
    - Search now is who did this - keep sending tips and info and we'll follow-up

    Then press will ask usual questions such as condition of body, cause of death, etc. and LE will refuse to answer them to not compromise the investigation.

    Guaranteed.

    Where did it say 470? Because that's where the pig farm and WC live. Are you sure the reporter said 470?

  19. So, MT's body was found on private property vs. public, is that correct? Also, is it known whether or not her body was found in a spot that would be accessible by vehicle or where someone would have had to either walk some distance or use ATV to access the location?

    She was likely murdered in the minutes or hours following her abduction. Its unlikely she remained alive for any length of time.
