I don't think stranger abduction is such an off the charts notion. I do think that the little bits of information we have gleaned to date seem to point to TH and personally think that TH is involved. I think she had the means, motive and opportunity. However, I also think there are enough holes in all the theories that make discussion of a stranger abduction reasonable. I was watching criminal minds last night and it was about a boy that was not getting the attention he deserved at home and had been courted by a man for some time. Not in a sexual way, but in a father- son way. It was clearly a sick relationship, but the boy was very interested in the attention this man would give him and this enabled the man to spirit him away virtually under everyone's noses with the intention of making him his own son. No one even realized he was having a relationship with this man. Now I am not suggesting that this is the case here, nor are there any parallels except a missing boy. however, since we do not have definitive proof at this juncture,discussion of a stranger abduction is not out of the realm of possibilities. Feel free to throw your theories out here, but don't take it personally when someone shoots your theory down(in a respectful way..... ahem)just argue your theory as best you can. To you die hard TDI's ( terri did it) please don't be rude to those that think differently than you. Lots of complaints about fear of posting things that are contrary to the majority and that is just wrong. If a thread like this frustrates you because you think it is not possible, post somewhere else if you cannot intelligently argue your own point without getting personal. If you think you are inclined to snip at someone or post rude condescending remarks towards those that think differently than you, please don't. If you want to post a long diatribe about why it is not a stranger abduction, please don't. Just respond to the theories that may be posted, please. Thanks.
