    I started looking for patterns in p2. This is what I have so far. Does it make sense to anyone yet? :)

    In the first of the three lines I bolded, I changed Amanda's Q to an R so that SEPRSE is the same in all three.

    BBM! Interesting ideas grayjay! Where did you find the information about him having three addresses? Honestly, it would be very helpful to know more about Ricky. What did he do for an 'official' living? It seems silly to write secret coded notes to yourself, so who did he write them to as he was growing up? I remember writting secret messages to my friend as a little girl. I wrote them in a secret code I don't even remember now (but I am sure could be easily cracked). I wrote them in lemon juice so they 'disappeared' and could only be seen if held up to a hot light bulb. Knowing more about Ricky would help a lot!

    No, no, no! Ricky died in 1999, and I can assure you, there were video game cheats many years before that! For example, the 'jump to any level' cheat for the first Sonic the Hedgehog 16 bit Sega Genesis game (came out in 1991) was 'up,down,left,right,A,start'. I begged, and begged my brother to tell me, b/c I couldn't get past the labrinth level that was right before the starlight level which was my very favorite. So I still remember.

    This line from your transcription
    26MLSE74SPRKSE29KENOSOLE173RTRSE

    The first part looks like it says 26 miles south east 74 south park 29 k east

    (here it could say a raod name in code or it could mean ole 173 route or right turn south east)
    I played with it and it could also be east/no south old 173 right turn right south east .
    Or I could be nuts.

    I Also (as others have) noticed the repeating NCBE and saw where it appears in one part there is a XE added to it making me think if we could firgure out what suffix that is supposed to mean to Ricky , we may have 2 letters firgured out or at least how he makes that suffix at least.

    I hope the FBI is reading here.... if you google lines from the two pages, you get links to WS's. You guys are coming up with some great ideas!

    Soul, that would be awesome ;). I'm not much of a conspiracy theorist, but this one definitely has set of my hinky meter. I like your theory! lol

    I am thinking wld ncbe could be "would be nice"

    still grappling with it though because we do see ncbe with out the wld and vice versa...

    Anyway check out the pic and let me know what you think. I have taken the liberty of comparing "like" patterns and handwriting to try and match the letters as close as possible. If you have other ideas, I'd like to know how you are thinking. Maybe I am missing something..

    Great community by the way. Definitely better than wasting my time watching youtube videos all day.

    ps. Might consider seperating out the "sen"'s seems to be a few of those....

    I am thinking a map of the addresses he lived may help us figure out things. I get the feeling some of these are directions to places and he maybe uses thing such as d-w-m14 to mean something overly simple.
    Like door with metal 14 or drop with male 14 or down west maple 1400 block.

    In my head looking at the hand written version it seems my brain wants to say it is backwords in places. I do not think it will be a uniform code the same break wont work in all parts. I dont think. (who knows though)

    Also checking his criminal record might be worth it.
    Just to see if we are dealing with a high level hit man or something. 3 addresses? wow.

    After the first parenthesis, there are very few vowels except for "E" for quite a while

    Hmmmm. Maybe he had money stashed somewhere.

    I thought, what the heck, and rotated the print around and read it up to down and down to up and right to left and got nothing of course.

    I will not get sucked into this thread...I will not get sucked into this thread...I will not...

    Hi everyone. I just joined here so please forgive me for interjecting what might be something of no consequence in this mystery. I only know what I am learning here, but this part of the code from the second paper caught my eye:


    The reason it caught my eye is that it looks like directions that someone might jot down in an abbreviated form. For example: MLS = miles E74 = Rt 74 ...etc

    I am way out of my league here, but I just wanted to throw it out there for thought. I caught this story online today and was intrigued. I just wonder if maybe Ockham's razor might be the one to shave this mystery. I dunno.

    I also dunno why that link keeps going to a different place. At any rate, google map 'RT 74 Missouri'. Was it always that short?
