The neighbor (with Echo's car keys) and his wife/gf ?
Body found related to missing persons case......
Independence police: Human remains found on Grain Valley property related to missing person's case
Edwards, MO and Grain Valley, MO are about 2 hours apart.
I don't think it's Echo.
not her Independence police identify human remains found on Grain Valley property
Bumping for Echo.
Constantly putting together notes on Echo. She isn't forgotten. <3
Still no news....
Until someone is brought in for another charge and LE puts the heat on to get them to tell what they know - we might not find Echo until someone slips up.
It's just very sad, I follow another case where she disappeared around the same time, I don't understand the MASSIVE difference.
Thinking of Echo and her family, hoping they get their answers soon.
Dana, the friend here, seems to genuinely know and love Echo. And I empathize with Echo's withdrawing as a result of rape--sometimes it is too much to carry, and not something that can be "worked out" in a counselor's office, especially if the counselor isn't trauma-informed. I've been so surprised by the number of unhelpful rape counselors out there. My heart hurts for Echo, wherever she is, because the fact that she hadn't healed enough from the rape to be close to Tony, or the fact that she knew that, means it left her afraid. It changed her life. And so I have a hard time believing any free-spirit story here. Echo knew how dark this world can be, and I suspect she probably avoided it and developed patterns of protection. IMO.
Would love to know which Dollar General the clerk that remembers Echo was at.
So Echo told the clerk that someone had drained her account.
The clerk then describes her as flustered, “rushed and scatter-brained" (maybe it's dawning on Echo that the man outside in the car is the one who drained her account).
And we know that the neighbor told Kelsey he and Echo went to Wal-Mart on Mother's Day together, presumably in Echo's car which was missing from the garage when K. stopped by with card and gifts.
I am speculating here but I can see a line underneath this, and it worries me.
It worries me that Echo had to get back to the car and tell the neighbor her money was gone.
It worries me that she would be conflict-avoidant in that situation, and probably frightened.
It worries me that he seems like a man who likes control, and who gets excited by fear.
The neighbor is not looking good to me at all.
LE either has a working case here or else is doing a terrible job. Why can't they respond to record requests?
Speculating, but it seems kind of strange to give this to Highway Patrol. Is the neighbor related to anyone in local LE--is that why the case switched jurisdictions? Does anyone live in the area with info on Benton County Sheriff vs. Highway Patrol and what it would mean?
Agree. These summaries are extraordinary and really well written Thank you so much for taking the time to create them!
These questions bother me too. I don't think he held Echo hostage because it would have been really risky. JMO whatever happened took place on Mother's Day and then the rest of his plans focused on how to get rid of evidence. I think and hope it happened quickly and I wonder if they both even got back to her house after shopping? Do we have evidence that she, herself, was ever home on Mother's Day?
Per my second bolded statement, me too @Choochoobella, me too. It breaks my heart. Echo seems like a genuinely beautiful human being.
Thank you @Betty P for being a voice for Echo. I feel like there's a weird lag in how LE is handling this, and it makes me feel better to know it's not my imagination. Because now I'm going to call those numbers you posted tomorrow and ask why this mother's life is being ignored.
It's local election time where I live so sending emails and calls is a really good idea because the politicians are very very worried about public perception right now.
That would explain a lot. And it would account for the sinking feeling in my gut about how this case is being handled.
It sounds like Echo's life was being taken over by a master manipulator, and yes, that can cause mental health issues. But I don't think we've been given any reason to believe Echo's mental health crisis (messy house, etc.) preceded the neighbor's attempt to take over her life. It wasn't her: it was him.
Beautiful photos. Beautiful human surrounded by kids and life. My heart breaks for her daughter, and for her other children (which I don't know much about?)
