Discussion in '2010's Missing' started by SheWhoMustNotBeNamed, Sep 26, 2012.
From my buzzing around earlier - it is Chloie's dad who passed I believe<<--- IMO
From this article, it would appear they are half-brother/sister. Same mother, different fathers.
From this article http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/tenn-children-missing-killed-fire-17331572#.UGOYHFH1nt8
I find this strange:
The McClarans' remains were found in the home's basement under where the bedrooms had been, according to the sheriff.
Does that mean they were in the basement at the time of the fire or did they end up in the basement due to the collapse of the house?
If they were in the basement, I find that suspicious for both adults and the animal to be in the basement that late in the evening with school in the morning.
I would also like to know if there were any working smoke detectors in the home.
This map shows the grandparents' home in a rural area:
730 Kingdom Road, Unionville, Tennessee - Google Maps
I would suspect LE has searched all of the buildings on their land, as well as the house, thoroughly for the children before putting out an alert. Although the nearest neighbor is a good distance away, I think the children would run to a neighbor's house when the fire started.
If these children were kidnapped after the grandparents were murdered and the house set on fire, the kidnapper and children could be long gone. At this time, LE doesn't know whether the children were just frightened and are hiding somewhere or if they were taken. Makes the case very difficult.
I must trust the TN State Fire Marshall's Office in their conclusion the children's remains are not amongst the rubble.
Discussing this with a veteran firefighter, my DH, it would be highly improbable evidence of the children's remains would be inadvertantly undetected.
I wonder if all the parents of the children have been located and their whereabouts when the fire started verified...even the extended family directly related to the 2 children.
This is so horrible. Prayers to their family....they seem to be very close.
The last article (video) says the little boy didn't go to school that day..Friday, but the little girl did.
NCMEC poster released - http://www.missingkids.com/missingk...seNum=1203253&orgPrefix=NCMC&searchLang=en_US
The wording on the poster is off. But it looks like Gage's first name might actually be Christopher, and he uses his middle name.
"To err on the side of caution, as far as law enforcement is concerned, we feel like we can leave no stone unturned and just try to follow every lead that we can to ensure that they're not somewhere else," Helm said. "I don't know where else they would be. They were a close knit family."
The sheriff's department has brought in additional cadaver dogs to assist in the search. The TBI and ATF are also helping with the case.
Oh, they think that there may be remains that can't be recognized as such due to the extreme heat of the fire
Can a fire get that hot without an accelerant?
I was wondering if perhaps the children started the fire on accident...and then ran to hide when they realized what was happening. I know thats awful to imagine...
My heart is broken for the grandparents and their family...OMG,this is just such a tragedy.
I don't know how big the family dog was, but they were able to locate that. So I'd hope that small children would be able to be located as well. That was hard to type.
I pray the children are alive and well somewhere.
The location of the grandparents bodies in the basement sounds like a crime to me. JMO.
This is almost like the perfect crime..
I hope they are able to determine the cause of the fire.
The fire burned very hot. I always thought it would take some time to cremate remains.
One Child 50 lbs and the other 75 lbs.
I would think if they found the dog,They should have been able to find the children..
Prayers that they find these children safe!
BBM ~ I agree, if they were able to find the dog, then I would hope that they would be ale to find the children, if they weer in the house.
Oh my! My heart goes out to these people.
Have any of the children's Biological parents from which the children ad been taken from and placed with Grandparents, been located yet or are 1 or more of them missing also?
I hope this isn't another Groene type incident.
This is so sad, I hope so much there is a possibility they are alive some where....but then what will that mean.
