Yikes.... thanks for pointing that out. I missed it.
The train is starting to slide around on the tracks…
The charges were filed and dropped. Even if they were not dropped, it does not necessarily indicate he would harm Summer. Stating facts is fine, but do so while staying in the victim friendly lane.
That’s certainly happened before, when an abductor is trolling for a victim. I recall one case where a woman on a bike was attacked because the would-be abductor believed she was a child.
The issue is that any potential abductor would have to have a reason for going to that particular location, as it is isolated. It’s not like someone could be driving by and see her playing in the yard or something.
So I’m not a fan of that particular theory, or even an abduction in general (unless the abductor knew Summer, and miraculously timed his entry and exit perfectly.
I don’t know how to post the image here, but if you Google Tennessee Amber Alert Summer Wells and look at the images, you can see how they chose to officially portray her.
Reminder: TBI requested assistance from the public. They need help locating a Red/Maroon Toyota Tacoma (1998-2000) with a ladder rack and white buckets in the bed. This vehicle was spotted near Beech Creek and Ben Hill Rd on 6/14 or 6/15.
Summer has been missing for 16 days.
I took it as 2 separate statements like we don't know our neighbors.
Put a period there. It's a statement that stands on it's own.
But the people we do know (and associate with) are good people. ie we're good people.
That's how I think he meant it anyway.
This is what brought me back to this website. I haven't been online here in ages....then...I saw the local news reports, that struck me as odd, regarding what the mother was saying right after vs., to hours or days later. Then the interview of them both.....I don't know about others, but <modsnip>....something is off. I hope they find her fast.
Exactly…any instances of DV can not be minimized or rationalized in any way. It takes bravery for any woman or man to come forward with allegations of DV, and it does provide information on the home environment <modnsip>
I was just reading your 2 quotes. I’m leaning that way. Sadly when you have 2 adults acting like children less then a year ago…..I don’t think anything changed. Hopefully my thinking is wrong.
Normally I’d be very concerned about any domestic violence history, but I’m not really interested at this point.
If dad was home at the time, then I’d feel completely different. As far as we know though, he was at work when this went down.
If we learn otherwise, then it’s back in play in terms of relevancy, but I’d be surprised if that changed.
That’s very disturbing.
It would be interesting to know if CPS was ever there before this.
Am I allowed to post a link from a newspaper article?
Summer Wells’ Dad Says He’s Haunted by Her Aunt’s Decade-Old Disappearance
“When you see cases like that, that’s why I lose hope in Summer.”
Assuming I can..If not mod please delete....another sad child
Toddler’s remains found in Chattahoochee River in Cobb, police say
From the article:
The child’s exact age is not known, but investigators believe they were between 1 and 3 years old, police spokesman Sgt. Wayne Delk said.
It's probably not her, but if Summer's height is truly 3 feet as quoted on her missing poster, she is quite petite, below the 5th percentile for her age. She could appear younger than 5. Average height for a 5-year-old girl is 42" which is 6" taller than Summer.
I believe someone spotted her with short hair and assumed 'boy'. Possibly sighted during errands CW or DW ran with the kids in tow, family outings like Sabbath days, trips to the state park, etc. In a small town it wouldn't be hard to find out where they lived and learn their routine. Could be a professional person like a doctor, public servant like a postal worker, a grocery checker, Walmart worker, drive through they frequented. Or none of these. It could be someone who kidnapped her to replace a child they lost, not RSO related.
I have been following every post on this case since thread #1, though I have not posted in a few days. I have not found myself suspicious of the family yet, and feel lost as to what truly happened. No single direction feels like the answer to me.
with that being said, without getting too off topic, I want to share something as it relates to the family and mostly CB/CW. My child was taken when he was small, and I know that I reacted in a way that was likely not ‘normal’. The incident only lasted for a SHORT amount of time — maybe he was only missing for 30 minutes, maybe it was a few hours. My brain in that time was mush. I cannot tell you the details, time-wise unless I went back to read the police report. I felt as if I was totally under the influence, I couldn’t even speak well to the police. Similarly, it has been some years and I cannot recall every single detail. Despite it being a very traumatic and prominent event/incident....and this is while my child is completely safe and unharmed. Perhaps this is why I cut CB/CW some slack and don’t necessarily fret over the timeline not seeming perfect or aligned.
additionally, and what brought me to post tonight, is that my child, the same one, was in a car that was almost stolen today. He was in the car of a relative who was just a few feet away. The would-be thief brazenly walked up and got into the car before my relative quickly intervened. I share this with you all because I saw some comments in earlier thread(s) saying what are the chances lightning strikes a family twice. Too coincidental, etc.
We are not bad people or a bad family. We pay attention to my child and keep eyes on him as appropriate. He is happy, healthy and thriving. You may read this and disagree, or else how would it have happened to us? I do not know what power in the universe has created both of these terrible situations.
my last point: I am incredibly upset tonight, understandably, but what makes it worse is that I am triggered by event #2, causing me to re-hash event #1 in my brain. I have typed more words here than I have spoken aloud since the car incident earlier. I also believe this is a stress that CB/CW likely has dealt with since sweet summer went missing. The disappearance of her sister, now Summer...
perhaps my own experiences and possibly relating (in such a minor way) to CB/CW has clouded my judgement. I still just cannot find it in me to find what little we know to be suspicious yet. I could be terribly wrong, I will admit. My brain just will not pick a possibility and stick to it.
(sorry for the super long post...)
so very sad
