After posting that info here last night, I was going through the family's website (still condensing and transcribing) and found a 3rd comment about Ward blocking progress. I'm on about page 19 or 20 right now. Regarding Tugela's info about the procedures that are followed to allow others to investigate..... This is JMO, but I get the impression that the family feels there may be a complete bypassing of these requirements due to others working together to make sure Ward gets to "keep his case", or due to incompetence/apathy. It's just an impression I get from reading between the lines, I haven't seen the family say anything like that outright, and I could be completely wrong. As an example tho, in the girl's case mentioned above (Heidi Seeman), a cold San Antonio area case around the same time as Emily's, the FBI and Texas Rangers were also working on it. Apparently Emily's family have asked for FBI and Texas Rangers to help in Emily's case but they are not being permitted. There could be legal reasons, rather than nefarious reasons, for this, tho.
