Just listened to Tricia's interview, as well as GH.
If these boxes haven't been checked, they should be.
(Caveat: No disrespect intended to anyone, this is just what I would do to quickly rule people out)
1. Polygraph/determine the husband's whereabouts the day Echo went missing - secure airtight confirmation.
2. Polygraph/determine the neighbor's whereabouts the day Echo went missing - secure airtight confirmation.
3. Polygraph/determine the alleged sexual assault Perp's whereabouts (the alleged Perp from nine years ago) the day Echo went missing - secure airtight confirmation.
If the above three are determined to not be POI (officially or unofficially), I would focus 100% of my efforts searching the woods behind the house.
If forced to choose a theory/approach, I would choose the theory that she was working in the back woods of her property and had a medical episode and is yet to be found. T.E.S. will be extremely helpful, and drones should be used as well.
I think she is in the woods behind her house.
Amateur opinion and speculation
I have a question about the neighbor that took over the house and her car, where they possibly her landlord? I don't see that legally they could do that, but is it possible that due to Covid she may have fallen behind in her rent (as many have) and they tried to take control of things with the promise that they would let her stay and try to get caught up? That may explain why they had keys to the house. Just an idea.
Does it show how long she has owned the property?
Thank you!One of the real estate web sites (I think realtor.com) showed the last sale of the property in 2019, so about a year. In her daughter's video, she mentions they moved to the area about a year ago, so it fits.
ETA: Zillow shows it last sold on 10/14/19
Property is in the name of Echo and her husband - 30617 Stag Dr
Her daughter went to her Mom’s on Mother’s Day and left flowers and a card. No one was home apparently.Did her husband or other children not wonder about her whereabouts on Mother’s Day? Or had she broken off contact and wanted alone time?
How long had Echo been living there?
From Tricia's interview with Echo's daughter. Thank you, Tricia!
The only thing missing from Echo's house were
- her keys
- her cell phone
None of the above have been found.
- her prescription medication, which some people use as a recreational drug
Her house was locked up tight, but when Echo's daughter Kelsey climbed in through a partially open window, she noticed it looked different.
There was trash spilling onto the floor, dirty dishes in the sink, etc. Her mother was very fastidious about keeping her house clean.
There was also a land-line phone there, but the line had been disconnected. Kelsey had never seen it before. Her mom usually used a cell phone.
Neighbor had taken over Echo's house and car, telling her what to do. had gone to her daughter Kelsey's home a couple weeks prior before and spent the night. Echo was worried about the neighbor and talked to her daughter about it. Her daughter wanted her to stay with her, but she went back home determined to re-take control of her house, car, life, etc.
Echo's daughter said her mom still had a very good relationship with her husband (Kelsey's step-father). They had decided to separate, but still cared for each other. Kelsey doesn't think step father would have done anything to harm her mom.
