    Congratulations chaddylex!!! You and Roselvr, et al are amazing. I am in complete awe of your tenacity and sleuthing skills. I have never been in the unfortunate position to have lost someone without answers, but cannot imagine anything worse. What a gift to find the truth and to bring a loved one 'home'. Thanks for all you do. You have given peace to anguished loved ones.

    Thank you. My match was pure luck on a case that wasn't one of my main cases. In the end I learned a huge lesson that if you feel it's a promising match, turn it into NamUs, LE on both sides. I don't think Carrie Sutherland ever turned my match in even though she said she did. Now she won't answer any of my emails on any cases which is very unprofessional.

    The other thing that can be done is to try to order them via Freedom of Information Act. Odyssey has tried to do that with Lori Richardson missing out of NC. She never got a reply, it turns out that her request got the investigator to really look into where they were, she couldn't find them either. It's very unfortunate because it would have been the most recent photo of Lori.

    That is incredibly unprofessional and immature of her. And she's hurting chances for loved ones to be found due to a ridiculous ego problem. :(

    I just read the entire thread, too. It is infuriating. I agree with poppygirl that a movie should be made about this .. yep, a training movie to be shown to all LE and others connected with missing persons and the unidentified to show these public servants how NOT to do their jobs...

    Chaddylex, congratulations to you on your match. Your perseverance is amazing. :)

    Congratulations, Chaddylex. Sorry to be so late to respond. I was "on leave" in September, so this slipped by me.

    Your special kind of effort and perseverance is what makes me keep plugging along. More importantly, it is what makes Websleuths and its members so very special. Thank you! :loveyou:

    Godspeed Cynthia Day. May you rest in peace.

    Incredible thread, awesome work Chaddylex and Roselvr. Y'all and many more members are what makes Websleuths great.

    Many people think this site is just for bored housewives who think of themselves as amateur sleuths and should get a real job.
    I'm here to tell them there are many 'housewives', doctors, lawyers, painters, teachers, athletes, sellers, authors, chefs, real estate agents, veterinarians, vegetarians, waitresses, hairdressers, dog groomers, LEO, sanitation engineers, airline pilots, artists, cashiers, and the list goes on and on.
    All of these professions and the many more I left off are what makes the world go around.
    So yes, Amateur Sleuths is a good start. :peace:

    Congrats to everyone involved in this ID, especially Chaddy!! Makes me proud to be a WSer!! Just curious…Wondered if the person referenced in the article could be you Chaddy? After reading the whole thread, I really think that you are the one that got this whole thing going, and I know that you made contact with the daughter after you had instigated the process...

    I'm looking at some past UID / Missing Persons threads to better understand what's working and what isn't. I'm finding that a lot of the primary source material - like Namus records of this case - have already been pulled down. Many news sources will also blink out over time. If you want your work to endure, post screen shots of your finds.
