Found Deceased OK - Makayla Meave-Byers, 30, Macomb, 15 Sept 2023

Um ... I don't know how a mother with a full time job and six littles has time to date?? I am not convinced on the 'open relationship' ... hoping for an arrest real quick followed by justice for this beautiful young woman. Holding space for all who loved her. RIP Makayla MOO
 
Meave-Byers, according to the school staff was a dedicated teacher and parent and was loved by many throughout the district.

um ... sounds like it wasn't a date after all ... and that an arrest is forthcoming, fingers crossed. Godspeed Makayla. MOO
 
I hate to jump to the conclusions but it's feeling spouse-ish to me. Especially after reading that "nosebleed" explanation for blood on her floor and bed. MOO
I agree, don't want to jump to conclusions, but there appears to be considerable evidence left in her home, according to the links above, IMHO. We will see what happens.

PUBLIC OPINION WEIGHING ON BYERS' CASE AS INVESTIGATION CONTINUES​

A search warrant also revealed the couple lived in separate homes on the same rural property. Inside Makayla's home, deputies said they found two .22-caliber bullet casings, broken glass, "blood spots on the floor," and "blood on the sheets of the bed."

So ... the couple living in separate homes on the same property is curious ... with six kids between them ... but it does lend 'some' (and only some) credibiity to the 'open' relationship statement. If Makayla had a date, there should be some information on her phone but I understand it takes time for LE to acquire that information. I suspect we'll know more soon ... at least I hope so. MOO
 
This case just came across my radar. How old are her kids? did they live with her? was the rugged she wrapped in from her home?

What i’ve read in this thread has me going to spouse or significant other are typically the 1st suspects. IMO

“It's been real hard, I’m not going to lie,” said BV, Makayla’s Meave-Byers’s adopted son. “Hard to get out of bed, hard to really do anything.”

[...[

BV and his sister lived with several foster families until two years ago, when he says they finally felt like they found a home with Meave-Byers and her four stepdaughters.

[...]

Now he is speaking out to advocate for her, as the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office investigates her suspicious death. “The information we were given is that she had left to go on a date and never returned home,” said Undersheriff Travis Dinwiddie with the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office.

“Absolutely not, I don't believe that happened,” BV said. “I knew she was getting on Facebook dating because I knew that somebody had told me that Frank was very upset about it,” he said.

Court documents show Meave-Byers’s father told Investigators that his daughter recently asked for a divorce. ...

[...]

A celebration of life for Makayla Meave-Byers is scheduled for Saturday, September 30, at Landmark Church in Purcell.
 
The carpet and culvert just makes this seem premeditated to me and increases the likelihood of it being someone she knows imho. IF it was a date with someone other than husband, it’d been an ongoing relationship. But the amount of suspicious evidence inside the house has me believing otherwise.

Well this makes it sound like the investigators believe she did leave with another man other than her husband and have a vehicle description. Hard to say if that’s really the case or unclear reporting but it does change the dynamic away from it being the husband who committed the act…

so then what? they go back to her house and the date hurts her there and then moves her again. It doesn’t explain the scene at her home.
