    This man went missing from work release and normally I'd scroll past a story like that when searching MSM for new cases because the person is not missing, they're running. In this case, though, it didn't seem likely a person who wound up on work release at age 39 would have the wherewithal to stay on the lam for four years and he was just added to NamUs this week, so I took a closer look.

    These links are from last year:

    http://www.wwltv.com/story/news/local/investigations/katie-moore/2014/09/05/14705138/

    What she says in both articles rings true, very much how family members of other missing people describe their own experience of this kind of loss and having no answers. I don't get any sense that his family might be covering for him, that they're helping him avoid going back and facing whatever the consequences may be. On the other hand, suicide does sound like a possibility, or some other non-criminal death by misadventure if Billy did manage to get himself out. Or maybe someone else at the program had a beef against him. Whatever the case, it doesn't sound likely that he's still living.

    Another little bit from that second link, sounds ominous:

    The program was shut down last March after another inmate escaped and kidnapped his former girlfriend. Many ongoing problems at the facility even before that, apparently.

    Also if the program was having issues and on the verge of being shut down if another incident occurred, this could be an inside cover up. Prisoner found dead from something that was preventable (suicide, beaten by inmate or guard, dehydration while working etc) so they decided to make it look like he disappeared.

    I was thinking the same thing, lovinlife.

    Thank you, lol I'm so glad I'm not crazy. It's nice to know others have thought of these possibilities .
