Other avenues HAVE been explored, as discussed ad infinitum by LE. They chased a lot of sightings of Kyron that had (as far as we know) nothing to do with Terri murdering him or selling him off. Since LE has not released their evidence - but has listed many different angles of inquiry in the case, including those that have nothing to do with Terri - then it's clear LE has chased other angles, and kept finding the finger pointing back to Terri. I also am not sure why you're giving the "some other person saw him last" story credibility. What is it about that story that has the ring of reality to you? Because the attorney of the person of interest says "my client didn't do it. Some other guy did it." and that sounds more credible than everything else? it's his job to say that. And in any case, the only person who knows the person who saw him LAST is the murderer. No one else knows the timeline of when Kyron was taken. Oh yeah, but remember in her sexts she promised Kaine's friend that she could bench press his weight and squash him during sex, or something. So she still saw herself as a strong person who could outmuscle a grown man right after Kyron went missing. That's the mystery. Her supporters seem to say that she gave up her own baby "just in case" LE asked her something that could make her look guilty for a crime she didn't commit. I guess she was just making very sure that none of her innocent actions could be construed as guilty, and giving up her baby was just a security measure? So one parent is protecting a child from a suspected child murderer, and the other parent gives up their baby for three years... and you're saying the parent who has brought up the baby in safety is "cruel"? That's weird. Here's the commonality: Terri sent her older son away, then her stepson went "missing", then she gave her baby up without a fight. The commonality is that Terri is a mother who loses her children, at least 2 by her own choice. Evidence of this?
